I stayed there for a week with my family and some of my students. We were 21 and we felt like home, rooms were cosy and the kitchen was amazing!!! Bus 159 brings just under the Big Ben in half an hour, Nando's just around the corner and 3 supermarkets in 5 minute walk!!! It was the perfect house for a perfect holiday ... Thank you!!!

The place was perfect for our large group - we were staying there for my destination wedding. It is a huge property and very well-maintained. Modern, new, tastefully done up and en-suite bathrooms for all rooms. Great communication with the property owners who did everything to assist and help us. Top class service, really. Nice restaurants, shops and supermarkets in the area as well.

I live in London and my family is visiting me over every so often. A couple of years ago they already stayed with The Hotel Alternative at their property close to Battersea park and everything was then perfect but they were only 6 people. This time a bigger group visited me on December so I decided to check if they had something available in my area. I booked online and they offered me a discount since I had booked with them before. They are improving their offer regularly, this time were even offering free transfer from the airport if you booked for more than a week, unfortunately I wasn't eligible this time as my family was staying only two nights, but that's something to take into account for next time. Closer to the date I decided to call them to make sure everything was ok and to provide arrival details. Darie answered the phone and was very professional and proactive during the whole interaction. On the arrival date you only need to give them a call 1 hour prior the time you want to check in. Darie arrived in less than one hour for our check in. He explained as all the necessary very efficiently. Not only that but also did everything to accommodate one additional guest that joined us last minute. The house was spotless, everything neat and tidy and the location is really convenient a few minutes walk from Streatham train station, with shops and supermarkets very close. My family had an amazing stay and the fact that they could stay together in the same place made the difference, they even manages to prepare a family meal. The pictures online show you the real thing, everything very new and in a modern style. Darie and the lady who checked us out were friendly, genuine and very helpful. I would definitely recommend to stay in one of their apartments.

The apartment was very neat and clean. It is a home away from home. Very well equipped. Prompt response time. Highly recommended for travellers in need of location very close to central London yet with a less noisy environment. Thumbs up!

Casa splendida, dotata di tutto, moderna comoda ed elegante, a due passi dal caos del centro di londra raggiungibile con pochi numeri... 159 è tutto ciò che vi servirà per trascorrere una vera vita da londinese. Particolari e rifiniture degne di nota, accessoriata con ogni confort ad iniziare dalla cucina. Unica pecca poche prese di corrente nelle stanze o posizionate in luoghi scomodi, ma se vi dotate di un adattatore e una ciabatta, risolverete questa unica piccola pecca "logistica". tutto il resto, dall'accoglienza alla permanenza che questo gioiello permette, nn lascia nulla da dire, se no grazie per averci fatto sentire dei veri londinesi a casa propria. Splendida casa, fantastico tutto. Prenotatela e ve ne renderete conto. Really thanks a million for our lovely stay in London 🙂

The apartment was a two bedroom two bathroom apartment in Oyster Wharf overlooking the Thames. It was beautiful and very clean and well equipped. Only negative was could have done with a toilet roll to start you off, as most people travel and arrive late. It was very well presented and secure and for £15 a day the underground secure parking was excellent. It is dog friendly and there is a pets at home just five min walk away. We would go back again without hesitation.

Only some minutes by bus from Victoria Station, we found the perfect apartment for our stay. Everything was well organized, we got the key and an explanation of the flat right after our arrival. The apartment is furnished at a high qualitative standard, kitchen and bathrooms are equipped fantastically. After interesting but exhausting days in the city, we slept in very good beds. The only problem then was the sound of landing airplanes in Heathrow but after a short while you get used to that. All we needed for everyday life is near by, shops, supermarkets and pubs, so we could have a cup in the neighbourhood in the evenings. Very recommendable!
