Stayed in Apt 48 owned by Diverse UK. First impressions were pretty bad. The security guard in the reception had no idea about anything so we had to search online for a phone number as there were none in the emails we had. We were lucky he let us sit in the foyer while doing this. Eventually found a number...

We had originally booked a one bedroom apartment but received a 2 bedroom apartment instead(which I can't complain about). Pros: Transportation was really close to the apartment so that was convenient.The apartment was clean and spacious. The Internet was excellent. The beds were really big, but uncomfortable. There was a cute little balcony and the apartment itself was quite modern....

Stayed here for 5 nights for seminar at London ExCel - so very practical. Finishing of apartment could be nicer (wobbly door; leaking toilets; etc), but for that price, you actually can't complain... If you're visiting London with more than 2 people for a longer stay, I strongly recommend this place, because the fixed cost of the apartment can be...

The rooms are spacious and clean, Staff was very friendly and ready to help. Free and very fast Wifi which was a MUST for me because of work.
