Thank you for your kind comments. I am sorry that your stay happened during near gale winds in London. This is a rare occasion. However being on the fifth floor in the Penthouse the sound can be a little louder that on the more protected lower floors. It is, however, the first time this is mentionned to me in over my 15 years of renting. The site clearly indicates that the lift stops at the third floor and that two flights of stairs needs to be taken to reach the Penthouse Studio.
