Nous ne regrettons pas notre choix. L'appartement était très bien.
Les points positifs:
- proche du métro: à pied à peine 5 min de kensington olympia desservi le week-end uniquement et moins de 10min de Shepherd bush, où on trouve aussi des commerces pour remplir le frigo à l arrivée ! jolie rue, calme.
- Espace correct: une chambre, une sdb, un salon cuisine avec un canapé lit + 1 lit en mezzanine mais trop dangereux pour nous, nous avons préféré le canapé lit pour notre second couchage.
- Linge de lit, serviettes de bain, savon, shampooing, gel douche, thé, café... fournis
Les points négatifs:
- La propreté ! Le ménage avait été fait, les sols étaient propres. En revanche, les couverts, la bouilloire, les casseroles, tout est très sale, le ménage dans la salle de bain pas top du tout non plus, surtout les toilettes. + toiles d araignée, poussière.
Hormis les défauts au niveau ménage, l appartement est vraiment très bien.
