“Comfortable stay for reasonable price”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 1 April 2010

It was in a great location right next to Lancaster Gate underground station and there were several convenience stores and restaurants nearby. Our apartment was recently refurbished and although there was seven of us in one apartment it wasn't ridiculously crowded. The management weren't particularly helpful or friendly but we didn't really need them to be just for two nights.

We loved our 5 night stay in these apartments! The location is really great with a metro station across the street and a bus line at the end of the block. We had a 3 bedroom refurbished apartment-which was perfect for our family of six. Yes, the lifts are small by American standards-but you learn to adapt. The apartment was in great condition-I even discovered a washing machine in one of the kitchen cabinets! There is a small grocery store around the corner as well as a a street nearby with lots of restaurants and stores. We highly recommend Ask-great Italian food!

We stayed in these apartments twice. Before and after a Trafalgar Tour. It is in a central place with easy access to the subway which is across the road. Hyde Park is also across the road. There is a street with a few restaurants about a 5 minute walk behind the apartments, so in that way it was excellent. The first apartment we stayed in had a kettle that you had to hold onto the button for it to boil, it was on the fourth floor and lift broke while we were there and wouldn't stop on our floor, so when we had to leave we had to carry our suitcases down one floor to be able to get the lift. The lift is very small 4 people can squeeze into it just and it is very slow. The management is not very forthcoming with details ie when is the lift going to be fixed? Also the main shower leaked very badly. None of these things were fixed while we were there, this apartment was apparently refurbished! Our second stay was even worse. We booked these apartments through Loving London Apartments and on their website it clearly states that they book you into 1 of 6 apartments that are all of the same standard. When we arrived back at these apartments we found we had been booked into a non refurbished apartment and had to pay extra to stay in a refurbished apartment, which we did. This apartment was on the 6th floor which meant quite a few stairs or risk the lift. This apartment also had a leaking shower and every time you opened the dishwasher the kickboard on the kitchen fell down.
