London Apartment Guest Reviews

"The Chester apartment was perfectly located for us while on holiday in London. We were looking for a neighborhood experience with some charm and energy, safe for walking at all hours and close to public transport. The Chester location had all of these characteristics. The upscale neighborhood has scores of independent shops, restaurants and services to discover within 5 – 20 minutes easy walking distance from the apartment. The Sloane Tube station is indeed a direct 10 minute walk and easy if you are towing luggage. Buses were a regular and enjoyable alternative for sightseeing or travelling to a downtown destination. Two blocks East of the apartment you can walk the Embankment on the Thames all the way towards central London if inclined.

The apartment was contemporary, bright, comfortably furnished, relatively quiet (for the city), well secured, and had every amenity that we needed. It felt like a home away from home and that we belonged to the neighborhood. When not exploring the city we spent evenings on the garden patio, cooked in the modern kitchen, slept soundly in a very comfortable bed, and watched a little British television while running a load of laundry. We appreciated and used the guide books, current magazines and Wi-Fi every day while planning our activities over coffee in the morning.

I must mention the team at London Perfect and how impressed we were with their service. Booking was easy, charges made and refunded in a timely manner, info arrived exactly when needed. Ed deserves a special mention. He greeted us upon arrival, gave us a quick tour of how to work the various appliances, and left us with a welcome basket of wine, coffee, biscuits, milk, laundry soap and such to get us settled in. Ed took the time to enquire about our interests and plans for the holiday. He made several great suggestions, which we followed, that provided a local’s perspective on what to do in London. Mid-week we emailed him with questions regarding spotty Wi-Fi and a missing hair-dryer. Ed fixed everything before we returned from sightseeing the same day. The team in general responds quickly, professionally, and we would absolutely rent from London Perfect again."
