Getting around

This tranquil neighbourhood apartment building is easily walked to from Vauxhall Station, along a very scenic stroll down the River Thame's popular Albert Embankment. You'll see the Houses Of Westminster and Big Ben as you make this short walk from the station. Vauxhall Station doubles as both a London Underground Station (tube/metro) and also a regular Train Station (overground), so it is very well-connected. There are dozens upon dozens of bus stops and bicycle rental bays. You are in the heart of London and it's very easy to get where ever you want.

Interaction with guest

The check-in process is very simple. You will perform a 'self check-in' on the day of your arrival. Once your booking is made, I will send you 'Apartment Instructions', which includes directions, maps to make life easier. Simply pick-up a key locally and enter the apartment building. The regular check-in time is anytime between 3pm and 10.30pm. If you find you are going to arrive later than 10.30pm at night, there is an additonal cost of 40 GBP to organise somebody to meet you with your key. Regular check-out time on day of departure is anytime before 12pm noon. If you wish to have a later check-out on your day of departure, message me and ask. Depending on how busy the calendar is, we try and be as flexible as we can for our guests.

“Quite nice apartment but very disconcerting experience”

Reviewed 2 Feb 2017

We booked this apartment in central London for five nights - two adults and two teens I am a travel journalist from Australia and was in London to research stories (my wife booked the apartment). We were quite concerned when we arrived in the early evening because something struck us as wrong. It just didn't seem like the place that was advertised. So, we got out our photocopy of the advertisement and our suspicions seemed to be confirmed. In the 'key info' section it said there was air-conditioning, which there was not (we didn't need it anyway, so we didn't really care). It also said it was on the second floor when it was in fact on the fifth floor. It also mentioned a 42 square foot balcony, and went on to list balcony furniture. There was no balcony as such, only some large doors that opened onto an outdoor strip about as wide as your foot. It also said there were two sofa beds, but there was only one. We went back onto the holidaylettings website and the photos there showed that virtually all the decoration and soft furnishings, and pictures on the walls, and even the lights were different to what we were seeing in the apartment. We were now convinced we were in the wrong apartment. Some mistake must have occurred, we thought, and someone else might be staying in our apartment. We were obviously in an inferior apartment to the one we had booked, we concluded, and the better one had the 42 square foot balcony with balcony furniture and the extra sofa bed etc. So we didn't unpack. We rang the agent, who basically told us that we were wrong about a lot of things and that the fifth floor thing was a typo. He swore that the listing didn't say air conditioning, even though I had the photocopy in front of me that said it did. He said the photos of the flat were probably old and that things like furnishings had possibly be changed over the years (if so, isn't it up to them to keep things like photos up to date? Otherwise what you're getting is not what you booked). He, eventually (after much circular discussion) conceded that the 42 square foot balcony was an error in the listing too (I notice that the main mention of this has now been removed from the listing). He said he would ring the owner to discuss with him, but that we were certainly in the correct apartment. A couple of hours later we unpacked, after the agent said that the owner had agreed to refund us a night's accommodation, or we could leave. We were very dubious about the whole thing, but the apartment (which we had paid a lot of money for) seemed to be nice enough (apart from an incredibly noisy headrest on the largest bed that squeaked loudly every time someone moved an inch), so we agreed. Anyway, it was late by now, our evening had been ruined, and we were all hungry. Of course, we never got a refund for that night, despite reminder emails from us. It all felt very dodgy. Later, we read another review on the holidaylettings site about the apartment listing that confirmed some of the issues we had encountered. We stay in several properties a year, and have done for the past decade, and have never had any issues issue like this before. The front door of the apartment was very difficult to open from the inside and our kids (who are pretty strong) could barely manage it alone (you had to really shove it hard). Us adults struggled to open it too. Oh, and the key broke off in the lock on our last morning. We removed the stub and informed the agent. We were polite, even to the end. We enjoyed the proximity to the river. The apartment is about 10 minutes walk to the nearest underground.
