          • Family with children

            Our 2 bedroom/2 bath apartment provided plenty of space for my family of 5--much more comfortable and probably cheaper than hotel rooms would have been for this many people. Apartment was clean and well maintained. Within walking distance of London Tower and Globe Theatre, a quick walk to Undergroung station and grocery store next door.

            However, do not expect any services. We did not get a change of towels nor replacement toilet paper during our 5 night stay even with a call to housekeeping. Upon arrival, staff could not answer our London travel questions.

            excellent location. helpful staff. comfortable, clean, attractive apartment, the tesco downstairs and a kitchen, quiet and felt safe. overall, an enjoyable stay.

            just a few details would have made the experience even better. instructions on how to use the remote, dishwasher and wireless internet would have been helpful. some washing up liquid, a can opener, face cloths, salt and pepper. there were shakers, but nothing in them. maybe a coffee maker for those of us who aren't keen on instant. information, eg. maps would have been nice. but, this isn't a hotel, even though you keep calling it that, so i had no expectation of this.

            To get a 1 bed appartment close to London Bridge with kitchen and living room for the sensational rate I got from is amazing! It is spacious, clean and functional.

            This is a serviced appartment not a hotel, so you don't get things like a telephone or daily cleanning,

            IT was in a most convienent location and as two women we felt very safe. We liked the lay out of the rooms.

            The information package was out of date and there was no recycling facilities, but the staff were very prompt in getting us the info.

            When asking for an extra bed I was expecting to be charged £30 but was charged £36.20 - so over paid. Lady in booking office was rather rude too. Probably won't book again!

            Great location within a short walk from the South Bank. Also just two minutes from the Brough tube stataion.

            There was no kettle. Also you have to watch when filling the bath as due to it being an electric immersion system the water can then run cold when the hot water in the tank has run out!

            The bed was comfortable.

            There was no dish clothes to wipe the surfaces in the kitchen. No cleaner, or soap, sauce pans and pots were dirty and smelly, On arrival, but nothing to wash them with. The fridge and freezer was off, so when bringing fridge/ freezer food in, had to throw it because had to wait for the temperature to drop. When having a shower, half way through showering the water went cold, stayed cold, so others could'nt shower.

            It was quiet and having the external garden was nice.

            Lacked the amount of cutlery it needed - which has been indentified in other reviews.

            as they were only appartments there were no facilities here. the reception staff were not very helpful and didnt even have a map of the london area. the appartment was lovely, great for buisness trip but not for city break. not much in area, everything a tube ride away

            Mainly a jewel called Andrea, efficient discrete and always ready to assist; receptionists team was variable: Marco sensational, a young blonde lady very dry and unhelpful; cleaning ladies very helpful; having Tesco in the building was great

            The fact that services were fragmented: different companies to deal with;and the lack of any shopping available nearby
