Thanks Veronika for your review. Regarding cooking and dinning in the apartment, there is two ring hob, lots of pots and pans, a microwave with a mini oven, fridge/freezer and dishwasher in the apartment along with a good supply of supplies like coffee, milk, croissants, beer, wine, OJ, fruit etc. for you on arrival. There are also two tables in the apartment and a bistro table in the garden. Perhaps you didn't find the table extension, or the fold down table? Most people find the area very handy (15 minutes away) for most tourist areas of London, with the tube only 8 minutes away, but better still, their are 8+ bus routes just 2 minutes away that take you across many of the different bridges over the Thames with fabulous views. Perhaps I should have helped explain more about the buses, my apologies.
