We had a terrific stay at the Alcove Classic apartment in Earls Court. I had a bit of trepidation hiring the apartment for almost two weeks from the Internet sight unseen, but could not have been more pleased. It was reasonably priced but very well appointed and spotlessly clean, cosy yet spacious. Also so close to public transport and amenities...

Get you deposit back on day 1. The owner lives in Asia, which offers no recourse. Shame really as the flat is quite nice although the location is not too safe for women at night.

Owner Response I have been operating holiday apartments with my family in London for a number of years. During this time we have only had to retain a guests deposit on 2 occasions. In both these cases guests had caused significant financial damages and unfortunately it was necessary to retain funds to offset the losses we had suffered in a...

We stayed at this apartment for a full week in September 2010, everything was as described and we were really pleased with the location and services that the apartment provided. We are a family with two youngish children and we felt the area was superb with lots of many great restaurants and overall a really safe environment. Its proximity to...

We are 9 time travelers to UK, previously hotel guests. This apartment was obviously decorated by someone with designer aspirations. Hidden washer and refrigerator, very sophisticated faucets at sinks, elegant tile--no Laura Ashley looks or chintz anywhere. For the money, the square feet available compared to hotel was a delightful surprise. Noise minimal, a plane or two but not a...

The apartment was in a great location and was very nicely renovated. Quite spacious and had everything needed to make our stay comfortable. We were warmly welcomed by the owners and were able to dump our bags a bit earlier than check in time so that we could start seeing the sights. We enjoy walking and walked to Kensington Palace...

We sayed in the beautifully decorated Alcove basement apartment in June for five days. It had everything we could have needed from wine glasses to bath towels to cooking utensils, and was just around the corner from everything we needed: Grocery store, Dining, and the Underground. We were on a direct line to all the London main attactions, and easily...

We stayed in the basement apartment for 2 nights. We could not fault the apartment, which is clean and well furnished and has been cleverly developed to give excellent living space, kitchen/diner, 2 good bedrooms and bathroom and en suite wet room. We were greeted by the owner's son who showed us around the apartment and gave advice on available...

We stayed in this apartment for a week in September, the apartment was very well presented, the owners also run a hotel Wimbledon and unlike some apartments we have stayed in before you could tell that this apartment was professionally run. The apartment was perfectly clean when we arrived, the furnishings looked new and well maintained, check in was very...

This apparment is located in beautiful city of London in a rather quiet subsurb. Pro's: New design and flooring, nice paintings, a lot of lights to play with, rather good beds, close to the metros, enough shops and stores close, freindly renters Cons: rather sterile look and feel, cupware was insufficient and you could hear the planes fly by from...
