SMALL.. Too small for any two adults to stay more than a week. Kitchenette is really almost useless. Location isn't the worst but I would rather not choose this place if I knew what I wanted to do. (going to all the touristy places) Bathroom is SMALL. too small. I don't know what I was thinking when I booked this place but only thing I love about this place was that it was close to the Tower bridge, I went out to walk by the river to enjoy the view every night. NO AC, room can get very stuffy and hot. They provide fans only.
very convenient and good price for london, great combination of quality-price, good location. only downsize is perhaps too much noise from cars passing by at night - buts its a big city so it should be expected
The room was very clean and had everything one could want for a home away from home. The neighborhood is friendly and good places to eat are close. I did have trouble with connecting my laptop with the Wi-Fi and the thermostat in the bedroom did not work. Overall, I would definitely go back again.
Overall above average place to stay in London. Maps to/from hotel could have been just a bit more detailed, but I will definitely stay here again.
Not nearly as good as other accommodations I have stayed at in London for this price range. The apartment was small, as expected, but the bedroom area was so small there was only about 18 of space around the bed, we kept banging out shins on the corner of the bed trying to get to the bathroom, which by the way, is way too public. The toilet is literally next to the head of the bed, with a see through glass door in between...ew. Also, if you are a large American and even slightly overweight, you will not fit into the shower stall, it is only 24" by 24", yes we measured. Luckily we are both very thin! The lighting was not working properly and the wifi was a joke, continually going off and having to re-log in. It was so hot in this apartment we had to use a fan all night just to sleep, there is no way to control the thermostat. Yes we tried calling, could not get anyone to answer. We called the next day to complain about the wifi and were told we had to go down to the desk if we wanted to complain.(Where was this person?on the moon?) I was not willing to get out of bed, get dressed and walk down the block to the reception in the rain. There was alot of wasted space in this apartment, and being very small, they can do alot to improve this. There were several cubby areas that a shelf or a coat hook would have been useful. The only place to hang clothes is a small closet next to one side of the bed - the other side had nothing but wasted space. Also the closet rack was put on backwards, so you had to stack your clothes from front to back instead of side by side as you normally do in a closet. Weird and annoying. There were no instructions on the use of the stove/oven, which would have been helpful considering they are not traditional units and if you aren't used to these stovetops, can be confusing. My boyfriend is a great chef, and even he had trouble finding the on off and temp controls. The location was adequate, and there is a good grocery just a block past and another small convenience store up the street. We did not mind the longish walk to the tube and train. All in all I wont be staying here again. The furniture is sparse and uncomfortable and as I mentioned above, many things that need improvement. We were very disappointed for what we paid.
if you are staying a couple/three nights I would opt for a full service hotel such as Bermondsey Square however, if you are in London for 5+ days, its worth Think for value, apartment amenities such as washer dryer and kitchen options to reduce your meal costs and allow you to chill of an evening in front of the Tele and have a home cooked meal - even if its a pre prepared dish from Sainsburys around the corner that merely needs to be thrown in the oven for 40 mins. Tower Bridge, London Br and Bermondsey are all a little out of the way for West End Theatre, but if you want to be based in the city you can't do much better - shop for rates and lock in the non ref, non changeable once your flights are ticketed and you will save tons
Perhaps it was dealing with trainees, but hotel staff were not responsive to my request to delay checkout.
Good sized room with lots of shelf space. Kitchen is great. Short walk to London tower and bridge. All new interiors. Grocery store across street. Plenty of restaurants nearby.
Noisy place to stay. If you want to get to the tube it is a 15 minute walk. The immediate area is not awesome, just a busy road.
This was a great place to stay if you're traveling with friends. It was close to the London bridge. Our only complaint was the water was tricky-we didn't always have hot water. It would've been nice if there had been some instructions for how things worked in our apartment. Overall, I would recommend this as an option over a pricier hotel.
I would definitley stay here again and reccommend this to anyone. The place was clean and comfortable. The washer and dryer were a plus! The staff was helpful and friendly.
In town for a few days for a wedding, your basic sightseeing casual trip. The location couldn't have been better. The apartment was very clean and had a pleasant vibe to it. Beds also incredibly comfortable. Didn't use a lot of the amenities, but they seemed ample. Biggest complaint is there wasn't a lot of air circulation in the room. A fan helped, but only one window opened about two inches. Ironic because the weather was really nice, but it was still kinda stuffy inside.
First time we've actually stayed in London. The location of the apartment was fantastic! We walked everywhere, didn't need to hire a car. The apartment was great, but we missed an oven. The Wifi was poor, the settee bed uncomfortable, so we put cushions under the seats to build them up. The kitchen was fine, the bed was comfortable, but firm and the sheets crisp and clean. They're a supermarket nearby for groceries. We would recommend in spite of these few drawbacks.
I checked in and was sent on a 3 minute walk around the block to check in. When I arrived there was one gentleman behind a desk to check me in. Very polite, but no lobby area, nothing around. I felt very uncomfortable being a female on my own. There is absolutely no atmosphere and it seems like a very isolated location if you don't know London. The room was fine, clean, large for London. But it was creepy in the hall and I didn't see any other guests around. I was NOT comfortable staying there and immediately went on-line and found a new hotel. I was still obligated to pay for the 4 night stay. It's fine if you just want a place to crash. Ended up staying in Paddington area, great choice!!!
I've been to London many times, but this was my first experience in a serviced apartment. It exceeded my expectations in every way: value, service, location, and amenities.First of all, the price was fantastic. I've actually paid a lot more to stay in much smaller and less attractive accomodations (including My Place Hotel and the Corus Hyde Park). I didn't miss having a grody hotel continental breakfast either - I made tea and breakfast in my little kitchen and ate at my leisure. Also, the in-room washer/dryer spoiled me rotten! When you're on a long trip, you need to do laundry - and with checked baggage restrictions what they are...Booking through [...]was as easy as for any hotel, but I was glad I always bring a copy of my itinerary when I travel. When I arrived, they hadn't received any communication (reservation or payment) from [...], but were able to accommodate me and made everything right quickly and kindly. I'm sure the fault was entirely on [...], but the staff took care of righting the problem with no headaches for me. Also, if you're really particular, you'll love this place - while I was waiting, a couple from Germany was checking in and wanted to physically inspect several rooms to see which ones were quiet enough for their liking. A member of staff walked them to no less than 4 separate apartments - and did it incredibly graciously - so they could get exactly what they wanted. (The apartments are contained in a few separate buildings so it was an especially nice service).Getting to the check-in office (the apartments are a short walk after you check-in) was easy. I took the express train from Heathrow to Paddington station and caught a cab to Think Apartments. FYI: the driver had no problem finding the location, it was about a 20 minute trip, and cost 25 pounds with tip.The location was great for both its proximity to a well stocked 24-hour grocery store (right across the street), but also the bus and Tube. Bermondsey and London Bridge stations are both close (about a 15 minute walk to either) but the best way to travel is by the #180 bus which stops right at the apartment building 24 hours a day! The route takes you to Greenwich one way or Russell Square the other (with super convenient stops at Elephant & Castle and Waterloo stations). The neighborhood is clean and residential - if you don't like tripping over McDonalds and shady bureau de change places, you'll love it here!I was blown away by the size and amenities in my room! If you've been in a single room in London, you know how impossibly tiny they typically are. My apartment had a double bed (I've never seen a bed that size in a reasonably priced London single!), a small dining area, a huge closet with drawers, a beautiful bathroom with a HUGE shower, floor-to-ceiling windows that you can crack open for fresh air, a flat screen TV suspended from the ceiling (with more channels than I've ever seen in a London hotel room), and a great kitchen and laundry set-up. All of the kitchen and laundry machines were concealed behind sleek cabinets. The whole apartment is like something out of an Ikea showroom, and the modern furnishings make it deliciously clean! No gross carpeting or floor coverings - it's beautiful glass tile in the bathroom and hardwood everywhere else. And I was worried that they might not have a hairdryer - it's not listed in the hotel description and you never know - but there was a great one in the room (and it was nuclear hot!). The picture on [...]was just like my room in person so I hope they post even more online (the room was gorgeous - and I appreciate lots of photos when I book a place I've never been to). As for noise, there was virtually none from inside the building (which is remarkable!) and only a little from outside when I left the window open. It's a not-very-tall building in a major city so there's going to be some street noise, but it wasn't bad...The only thing that might have improved my stay would ...
reconverted warehouse in London Tower area, so great location and cool vibe, but next to train tracks so was noisy. Also, a few tweaks are needed for this to really work well, like upgrade in service and staff response to problems like light bulbs not working, having to lug baggage to various buildings (they gave us the wrong apt initially), having to ask for various creature comforts that you would normally get automatically at a higher grade hotel (extra key, hair dryer, etc). However all in all a neat way to stay and immerse yourself in residential London. Nice to have kitchen and washer/dryer.
