It was so easy to find the place and get the keys. Ben had someone waiting for us who couldn't have been nicer in explaining everything and anything he didn't tell us, Ben had written down and left at the apt. The apartment could use some maintenance - there was some paint chipping, tears in the sofa, loose flooring and the bidet is just for show as it doesn't work at all. But the location makes up for it all (except the hot water). There is a big picture window over looking Seven Dial circle and you can literally sit in the window and do some of the most amazing people watching in the city. It is central to everything and very close to a tube station. Quite a ways from Heathrow ( one hour by car, 40 min by train/tube) but center to most the main attractions so that is where you would want to be. Lots of great restaurants, cafes, pubs and shopping within a short walk. Wished we had known about the water situation (listing said plenty of hot water and water pressure) which there is, just not at the same time. If you want hot water the pressure is a dribble if you want cold or cool water, you have great water pressure. Made for some uncomfortable showers. Lots of conveniences there for us (converters, hair dryer, flat iron, iron) and a very well stocked kitchen. Besides dishes and utensils, there were spices, sugar, tea, coffee, dish detergent, and clothes detergent. The wifi was sketchy and not very reliable but I don't know if that is the norm over there. We were there visiting my daughter who is doing a semester abroad and when she brought her friends over to see it, they thought it was the Taj Mahal so that says a lot. It was so much better than a hotel room and not much more expensive. Having the extra room let us entertain friends and family which was great. I would look to stay at the same place if we went back. Thanks Ben!
