I received an email from the owner a week before the stay with very useful information about the apartment and its surroundings. The apartment is located 10 minutes away from Barbican station and there is a bus stop for lines 4 and 56 a few steps away. There are also supermarkets, restaurants and shops nearby. The apartment was spacious and very nice decorated, but it could be cleaner, as there were many crumbs on the floor and some items in the bathroom and kitchen needed a deep cleaning. Overall it was a good experience and with good value for money.

The apartment is good, is very well situated, clean and cosy. It is small but big enough for 2-4 people. The only problem is the lingering smell of fried food that comes from the restaurant (fish and chips) situated below the apartment.
Apart from that, I highly recommend it!

LOndon City Court Yard Cottage

Fantastic little cottage and very homely ad off the main road so not too noisy. Easy to find. Walking distance to tube station and great bars and restaurants near by. There was a few things wrong tho the bathroom wasn't as clean as liked and general cleanliness around windows wasn't good as was covered in cobwebs,the shower was our biggest problem didn't drain very well so had yo keep turning it off so the basin wouldn't overfill this needs addressing ASAP. But overall a lovelyittle place in a great location.

Please forward this mail to Mark.

A very spacious apartment in a nice and quiet neighbourhood.
A few suggestions to improve the comfort of your guests:
* place wastpaperbaskets in the bathrooms and in the living. Have the big one in the kitchen lined with a dustbin plastic bag. Have soap holders in bathrooms and in the showers.
* revisit your kitchen with a woman ! Although small, it is very practical provided some changes are made in placement of utensials.
* Have the place better cleaned : dust under beds, fridge defrost,
* As already discussed with Cleaning staff: Please rewrite instructions how to enter the apartment!

The above does not mean we did not enjoy the place because we really did.
Best wishes, Johanna

London Spacious Family Apartment

Joli appartement, propre, refait à neuf avec goût, dans lequel nous avons séjourné à 5 dont nos 3 enfants de 9, 7 et 5 ans. Nous avions tous de la place ! Petite salle de bain fonctionnelle, assez de serviettes. Bonne literie. Cuisine assez bien équipée (micro-ondes, bouilloire, cafetière, grille-pain, plaque de cuisson, four, frigo). Assez de vaisselle pour 5 (une grande casserole serait un plus, ainsi que des torchons à vaisselle). Bien situé à 5-10 minutes à pied de la station de métro Barbican. Quartier calme, avec quelques restaurants et commerces.
Le gros bémol, c'est le bruit ! Le simple vitrage côté rue (= côté salon), avec le passage des bus rend les nuits difficiles. Bouchons d'oreilles obligatoires ! Pas de volet, des doubles rideaux blancs non occultants = masque utile ! La chambre, elle, est calme, nous avons pu y faire dormir nos 3 enfants.

A Great Spacious London Apartment

Appartamento molto luminoso, ben arredato, in una zona ben servita da mezzi pubblici "barbican underground", buses and taxi. Letti confortevoli, e divano letto comodo. Cucina attrezzata, gradevoli da soggiornarvi. Facile accesso con chiave criptata. Comodo per 5 persone. Solo un accorgimento che secondo me renderebbe l'appartamento ancora più confortevole: verificare che tecnicamente si tutto funzionante correttamente, acqua, frigo, divano, strofinacci da cucina, e presa universale per elettric devices. Perfetta comunque ci è dispiaciuto lasciare la casa e Londra .... Quindi torneremo sicuramente.

Charming Comfortable Apartment

Appartement agréable bien situé ( arrêt de bus devant ).
Problème d'évier bouché, mais réparé dans la journée après avoir prévenu Mark, donc très bonne réactivité. Le gros problème, c'est que l'appartement est situé dans une rue très passagère, ce qui le rend très bruyant, donc je le conseil pour un couple ( car dans la chambre pas de bruit ) ou couple avec un enfant avec le sommeil lourd comme mon fils. Réveil de bonheur garantie faute de volet ( stores, mais pas totalement occultants et il en manque un),mais il faut bien se lever de bonheur pour profiter de cette magnifique ville.
Je laisse un avis positif pour cet appartement.

Charming Comfortable Apartment

The apartment is tiny but we, we were 5, we managed quite well. It is well located with metro and bus nearby.
The apartment was clean and had towels, linens, wifi and enough dishes and cutlery.
The radiator salon works pretty well and makes warmth (which is quite grateful when you take all day walking around the street). However, the radiator in the room it is harder to start and sometimes could not get it to work.
Another, though not tragic, bad thing is that the shower water goes low pressure, which is a bit heavy when you have to wash your hair.

Overall, we liked the floor enough and would not hesitate to go back there :)
