What about these apt locations in London

Jump to last reply

Thanks to all of you who responded to my request yesterday regarding locations of apts in London. Despite the fact that on the VRBO website they said that our dates were available, when I contacted the 3 most highly rated (by you guys) they said that those dates actually weren't available - UGH!!

So, I have gone back to the drawing board looking at more sites and have found a few more that I would like to run by you. For those new or to refresh your memory, this was a bit about ourselves and what we are looking for:

We will be staying in London for 4 nights with our daughter (24 yo) and son (20 yo) and his girlfriend (20 yo). We have been to London before for a week (10 years ago) and do a lot of international travel. My son's girlfriend has never been to Europe. We are looking for a 2-3 bedroom apt with atleast 1 King bed, 2 baths and air conditioning. Based on this criteria I started out with 55 options on VRBO and have narrowed it down to these five. I am mostly interested in your thoughts on the location of them based on our location requirements, which are: Close to a tube stop, and near shops and restaurants, and not too far from good, safe nightlife for the kids. Last time we stayed in an apt in Knightsbridge which was in a very nice neighborhood but a bit too residential for our liking - no small cafes nearby and even the closest grocery store was a few blocks. We will not be doing any cooking while we are there, but may want to bring back breakfast items and snacks.

Here are the links for the new options:
1. https://www.airbnb.com/rooms/6385873?wl_source=list&wl_id=131217354&role=owner
2. https://www.airbnb.com/rooms/6040220?wl_source=list&wl_id=131217354&role=owner
3. https://www.airbnb.com/rooms/6697153?wl_source=list&wl_id=131217354&role=owner
4. http://uberlondonapartments.com/Parliament-Penthouse-(5D).html

I have sent requests to confirm availability for all of the above and have been able to confirm that #2 and #4 are currently available for our dates. I am also waiting to here back from this place:

which was on my list yesterday but the majority of people were encouraging me to go for the Convent Garden apts (which were my first choice too), but unfortunately the Convent Garden ones weren't available. Thank you again to those willing to take the time to look these up! So appreciate it!
