I was very disappointed. The flat was note the one advertised, it did not match the photo on the website. Moreover, it was dirty and crammped. The international adaptor was missing, so I couldn't… More

"Good flat. Good views."
Travelled with my wife and son. My son slept on the sofabed. The apartment was everything we expected. Clean and smart.
Location was excellent, right next to the tube station so an easy commute by train. The underground parking was a bit pricey... but nothing to do with the flats managers.

"The flat did not fit the description on the website"
I stayed in the apartment with my friend and her parents in the beginning of May 2012. My friend proposed that I stay in this apartment with her and her parents. Having read the description of the flat, I agreed.
When we arrived at the flat, I found out that the apartment was not the one described on the website. Instead of the river view there was a view of the Vauxhall train station, and the river was not visible at all. The flat was on the 3rd floor, not on the 5th. The double bed was made alright. It took us a while to find the bed linen for the couch, on which me and my friend had to sleep.
The bed linen which we found crumpled in the wardrobe was NOT WASHED and pressed. There were no toiletries, almost no toilet paper, no hairdryer. Internet access was provided only when we complained about it. All in all, I had an impression that what is advertised on the website is only provided after you complain about it and have a couple of unpleasant conversations with the property manager. Guests are not explained how to handle things in the apartment.
The property manager was unfriendly and not polite.
I travelled to most European countries and stayed in many properties/hotels of the same level, and have never been treated in such a negligeable way.
The same as the guest review below (not sure why Tripadvisor allow more than one review per stay).
You were given a choice of apartments you chose this one because it was bigger.
Internet was always available, there is free WIFI in the apartment. Instead of asking about it you decided to assume it was not there and curse and scream at the staff.
The lack of instructions received was due to the late hour of your check-in at 1am and the fact that you were constantly cursing and swearing at staff made it difficult for them to explain much to you. I found it difficult myself and remember requesting that you leave.
Again the apartment is accurate when it says there is one double bed and one double sofabed (therefore, sleeps up to 4).

"My worst holiday accomodation I have ever been to"
I reserved the property for 3 nights to stay there with my parents and my friend since the property is advertised as suitable for 4 people. We checked in and were asked to leave because, according to the manager, the cleaner was expected to come and we arrived earlier. We felt it was fair enough and left. Having arrived back to the flat at around midnight we found out that the light in the leaving room is not working, there are no towels, no toilettories, the bed sheet for the sofa was not washed, the duvet cover of a size different from the duvet and the sofa could hardly be called suitable for 2 people. As a result we could not even take shower after a long and tiring day.
I would normally not disturb people that late at night but in this situation I felt it was appropriate to call property manager and ask her to arrange everything properly. She explained that towels were in the washing mashine and everything else, she thought, was alright. In the morning I contacted the owner of the flat and invited him to come and see with his own eyes what the problems were. However he refused to do so and tried to persuade me that everything was fine and my requests are unreasonable, including the request to provide a small towel and a big towel for each person, have them washed and ironed and preferably also taken out of the washing machine.
I would normally not tolerate such attitude. However my parents were in London for a very short time and moving out and wasting time did not feel to be such a great idea. So we stayed after the owner promised to give us enough towels, fix the light and buy new bed linen (though I still cannot understand why the just couldn't wash the one they had). So the rest of our stay was more or less alright, though 2 of us could not sleep on the sofa and had to construct an extra sleeping place of sofa cushions.
What impresses even more than poor management of the property is the attitude of the owner and the property manager. The latter did not even try to apologize for the spoilt time and was rather rude and agressive. The owner is polite but not very cooperative. He did not want to come and find out for himself what the problems with the flat were and listened only to the property manager rather then us, his clients.
Unfortunately in this kind of business you encounter guests like these. They were rude, constantly cursing, threatening and insulting my staff (something which will not be tolerated) at which point I personally asked them to leave. They decided to stay but instead threatened me with a negative review for a discount which I declined. Hence we have this negative review.
A list of things we did to try and please these guests:
1. We bought brand new sheets and towels.
2. We offered them a choice of apartments.
3. We offered them a full refund to leave (they decided to stay).

"Too small for more than a couple"
This is a very compact apartment. The description/review led us to believe there would be plenty of room for the three of us - a couple and 13-year-old. In fact, it was a tight squeeze. The double bed is a 'Thai bed' i.e. on the floor. The extra bedding is a sofa bed with an INFLATABLE mattress that takes 30 MINUTES to inflate!! Not okay. Spend the extra and get a proper sofa bed with good quality mattress (like we had all over Europe). When inflated the sofa bed and double bed had almost no room between them and therefore getting into bathroom meant climbing over mattresses. Removing some of the over-large furniture might have improved the situation.
Wi-Fi worked for about 12 hours then not at all. Had to use free Wi-Fi at Pret a Porter, which was downstairs. Very frustrating. Location a little bit inconvenient but Vauxhall tube station very close by.
On the plus side - very friendly manager; safe/secure, clean, modern, light and quiet. Good view of river and other London sights. MI5 building directly across the road.
Would only recommend for couples and singles.

A compact but nice flat with very friendly managers. There are great views of the city and skyline and it's extremely convenient for Vauxhall tube. Very quiet inside, so we had great nights' sleep. Comfortable and clean, we would definitely stay here again. It's very compact, so a family with lots of equipment might find it cramped. Our boys are 9 and 12, so it was perfect, and they were thrilled with the SIS building opposite!
