Statt der von uns gebuchte Wohnung im Hochparterre (siehe Foto) bekamen wir eine Wohnung im Souterrain (kein Foto). Diese wurde uns als "upgrade" verkauft. Es war im wahrsten Sinne des Wortes ein "downgrade" mit Blick auf eine Kellerwand. Ein Preisnachlass wurde uns nicht gewährt. Warum die ursprüngliche Wohnung kurz vor unserem Abflug plötzlich nicht mehr zur Verfügung stand wissen wir nicht.

Das Apartment ließ keine Wünsche offen, es entsprach genau der Beschreibung. Sehr sauber und sehr gute Ausstattung; vom Geschirrspüler über Bügeleisen bis zur Mikrowelle war alles da. Die Lage ist sehr gut, wenn man wie wir Camden liebt( 1 Station mit der overground). Ansonsten tube und viele Buslinien, die einen innerhalb kürzester Zeit überall hinbringen. Die Infos, die Clive hinterließ, waren sehr gut.

The Appartment is really nice and we found everything in it we needed. Its small but has a really good atmosphere. Everything was clean and we felt very good during our visit
The location of the appartment is excellent: You have a bus stop some meters away from which you can arrive King's Cross Underground within a few minutes. You have a Super Market just around the corner.
If we will travel to London next time, we will book this appartment again.

Eine Souterrain Wohnung als upgrade gegenüber einer etwa gleich ausgestatteten Hochparterre Wohnung auszugeben grenzt an Betrug. Alles in allem war das Verhalten des Vermieters in diesem Konflikt sehr unfair. Keine Empfehlung.

Unser Gastgeber kümmerte sich in zuvorkommenderweise sowohl im Vorfeld als auch während unseres Aufenthaltes in London um uns.
