The apartment has plenty of space for two people including a large closet. The bed was quite comfortable. Plenty of towels and linens (although no washcloth). The kitchen was modern and well stocked with dishes and utensils. Having a washing machine is very convenient. The few issues we had were quickly taken care of by the owner. There are dozens of pubs, cafes, and restaurants within walking distance. Considering the central location the price was reasonable.
First and foremost, retrieval of the keys is very inconvenient. If you arrive by Underground you have to walk to a store about 5 mins from the station (away from apartment), leaving you with a 10 minute walk back to the apartment dragging your luggage along busy, bumpy streets and sidewalks. If you arrive by taxi then you have a 10 minute walk in either direction, not meeting the owner was also a bit unusual.
The lights over the bathroom mirror didn't work. There were also no electrical outlets in the bathroom. Although you are provided trash bags, there is no bin in the apartment to put them in.
It's very noisy on weekend nights. The floors and stairs are all wood, so people going in and out wearing dress shoes make a lot of noise late into the night. Also, all the doors (including the lobby door) are spring loaded so the slam very loudly when they're let go, during the week it was fine.
All told our stay was quite enjoyable.
Alex’s flat was great for us. Centrally located perfectly decorated, clean and modern flat perfect for the 2 of us. Sheets and towels fresh and clean (5 stars.) Alex was very responsive to all texts and questions throughout the stay. Only one minor issue was the entrance was through the back alley with restaurants that had air conditioning/fans that were noisy but windows closed it was fine. Would absolutely book again!
