Attractive, Comfy And Convenient
This cute, well managed flat provided all our needs, including a great location to explore London from. This Pimlico location is lovely!
Very nice apartment in a great and quiet neighbourhood
We enjoyed or stay in the apartment very much. The place is well equipped, the owner fills the place with goodies and food for the first couple of days, and everything is exactly as advertised. Restaurants, supermarket and coffee shops are nearby. Nearest tube station is an easy 9 minute walk,
I can mention two things that may be improved:
1. the double bed in the master bedroom is tiny. It is hardly enough for two adults to sleep in. I don't remember any hotel or apartment with such a narrow bed. It also has one blanket, and when we asked for an additional one they said that there is no extra blanket in the apartment.
2. Communication with the owner and the concierge was not perfect. The owner haven't replied to some questions I had before checking in, and the concierge does not use email or WhatsApp, what makes contacting him difficult to tourists with data plan but with no phone plan (and cannot send SMS easily).
But the bottom line is that I *highly recommend* the place, and I will book it for my next stay in London with no hesitation,
Thank you for your comments . I am glad these guests enjoyed all the goodies - even the extra crisps and bottles of wine in the owners store cupboards.
For information This is a residential apartment not a 5 star hotel and is priced accordingly . The bed is a standard 4’ 6” double bed . it is possible for the two single beds in the second bedroom to be joined together to make a king size bed if requested in advance . The guest actually requested an extra duvet for the main master bedroom and we offered extra sheets as it was very hot which we thought would suffice. I am sorry if she did not feel we communicated appropriately. i certainly thought I had answered all her questions in advance . The guest was able to communicate with the owner by email and via the site and the concierge was contactable be normal sms or phone . I cannot comment as to why guests would not have a basic foreign travel phone plan set up in advance of their travel
Caroline, the owner was lovely! She was quick to respond to all my questions before arriving. She greeted us when we arrived, showed us around the apartment, and gave us recommendations. We loved Pimlico. The apartment was also lovely. I highly recommend a stay when in London!

Wonderful flat in a beautiful and convenient London neighborhood
This was our first visit to London as a family and could not have asked for a better location. Your flat really made our vacation a wonderful memory.
It is in a beautiful residential section of London and convenient walk to the Thames, Victoria Station and Westminster Abbey and many unique local neighborhood restaurants.
Thank you so much for sharing your beautiful flat and hope to return again someday.
Wonderful flat with amazing location
We stayed at this wonderful flat for two weeks with another couple. Everything we needed was there and it was very comfortable. The owner was available to help us with questions and provided us with even a weekly linen change; which was unexpected and really thoughtful. The location of the flat allowed us to walk to all of the major Westminster sightseeing venues including Buckingham Palace, Parliament, Westminster Abby, several museums and parks and shopping. Victoria Station and Pimlico Station were also very close. When we are back in London we will defiantly stay here again.
