I’m Joe C’s wife. I understand that, in your capacity as executive director of ICA, you asked Joe with whom I dealt to rent a flat in London. His name is Solly Godsi; his company is Knightly Property. I’m addressing this email to both of you so you can contact each other directly. I (not Joe) am the one who searched online for an apartment. We’re taking our teenage grandson to London with us for eight nights, and then the rest of his family will join us on the final day en route to Nairobi; thus, we wanted a flat (not a single hotel room), one with a kitchen and two bedrooms and preferably sleeping places for six people. I found several options through online searches and ultimately decided to book with Solly, who was very professional, helpful, and cooperative throughout the process. I was especially pleased that he offered a suitable flat that’s with our budget and also well located for ease of touring the sights and sites of London. Although we’ve yet to stay in the flat, I am expecting a very good experience given the accolades I read online from tenants who praised Solly’s services and the location, condition, and quality of the apartment and its contents.
A frequent traveler, I stayed here for a while and must call it, hands-down, my best vacation rental experience of them all. The apartment is in great condition, with all the furniture and accessories as represented in the photos and written description. The bed was very comfortable and the heating system ensured warmth on some very cold days. Pina and Solly responded quickly to my pre-arrival inquiries as well as my mid-stay questions and needs, and went above and beyond to ensure my stay was a great one. The neighborhood itself can’t be beat, with fast access to multiple tube stations, constant taxis and great restaurants and shops. I would absolutely recommend this apartment to anyone and hope it’s available when I next return to London.
My family stayed at the Copella flat over the New Year. The location was wonderful - just steps from the main square of Covent Garden and all it has to offer - restaurants, shopping, nightlife, people watching, etc. It is only a short walk to many attractions in the central London area including The British Museum, The National Gallery, National Portrait Gallery, Westminster Abbey and many more. If you need a cab there is a cab queue just a few steps from the flat - we never had to wait more than a minute for a cab. Starbucks and Costa Coffee are steps away. The Covent Garden tube is 2 short blocks away. This location is just wonderful for anyone but was especially great for my family which included very young children and middle aged parents. The flat is a nice alternative to staying at a hotel when traveling with children - there was room for them to spread out and have downtime as well as having the ability to have some meals in and not having to have every meal at a restaurant. Pina, Solly, and Mathis were professional, friendly and very nice to work with.
Gem on Jermyn Street, London. Recently we had the pleasure of staying in this beautiful flat, during our visit to London. over New Year’s, it’s perfect, central location allowed us to enjoy the city, without the usual need to waste so much time and money in cabs. The flat has under floor heating and central A/C, just like our home. No lack of creature comforts there. Tastefully decorated, with a private key operated lift we felt very comfortable and secure. I can honestly say that it was one of the nicest places we have ever stayed in London and can heartily recommend it to all who want to sightsee, shop, dine or otherwise enjoy what this great city has to offer in style. Thanks.
I cannot say enough positive feedback on the property itself and even more importantly the property manager. He owns a number of properties across London - we stayed in one other - and were very happy with our stay. He is a very professional, accommodating manager who goes out of his way to ensure your stay is as pleasant as possible. The apartment was lovely - clean, fresh and as described. It is a very quick walk to the subway and a very quiet neighborhood at night. I would highly recommend the apartment and the property manager. Simply outstanding!!!
Just wanted to write and thank you for the fantastic experience our family had in your St James apartment. It’s a beautiful apartment in one of the premier locations in London and provides excellent value for money. Your team was on hand whenever a query arose and the friendly approach made all the difference. I would thoroughly recommend this apartment to any visitors staying in London.
Great apartment in a perfect location!! We were 8 adults, friends & family for a stay in London. The apartment was perfect and sure one of the reasons which made our stay in London so great. It is just as you see in the pictures, great lounge to sit around and chat after a long day or stay in and have something to eat. Felt like at home!! The attention received form Solly, Roxanne and all the staff of Knightly Property was really kind!! We received of deposit 24 hs after check out. We strongly recommend this apartment and Knightly Properties.
Solly and Knightly Properties run a world class organization. The entire experience was great from booking to checkout. We checked in to the property on a warm Friday morning around 9 am. On landing at Heathrow after a grueling 14 hour flight, we called Solly and he was very prompt in responding to us. Solly met us at the door and walked us through the apartment. Being the gentlemen that he is, he even helped us carry our bags up the stairs! Once in the apartment, my wife wanted to move the furniture to suit her needs and Solly was very accommodating by helping us move a heavy cupboard around from one room to another. You cannot expect such customer service from most organizations! We had asked for extra keys, towels, linens and cutlery and were pleasantly surprised to see it was all there. The 7 year old in our group was very happy with the PS3 in the apartment. The three WiFi connections available were more than sufficient to meet our needs. The duplex apartment is in an older building which has a slightly historic feel. The carpet, paint and bathrooms could use some updating but nevertheless we felt at home. The bedrooms are a little cozy, but the living room was spacious, full of light and airy where we enjoyed relaxing as a family. The neighborhood is quintessential London. We felt like locals. I have been going to London for several years and you couldn’t ask for a better location. Covent Garden tube station is just around the corner and of course, Covent Garden itself is just down the street. My wife was thrilled with all the shopping and restaurants available on Long Acre street which was a block away. All the major sites including Oxford Street, London Eye, Westminster, Soho, the British Museum, the theater district are a short walk or 5 pound cab ride away. Check out was as easy as leaving the keys on the coffee table and locking the door behind us. Knightly Properties was very professional to deal with. Our deposit was promptly refunded and all money matters were quickly managed and confirmed. To summarize - the location is probably the best you could have in London, the service is excellent, no hidden fees/costs and the apartment served our needs adequately. Did I mention the best fish & chips you can get in London is just down the street?
Hi, so often people take the time to issue a complaint well I want to let you know what superior service Chris provided. As David’s flight was delayed, we were all concerned about our 84 year old father arriving in London alone as he has mild dementia. We needed to ensure he got safely to the apartment. Well Chris patiently waited for him to make his way to arrivals, all the while texting me to provide updates. Chris recognized my father right away and went up to him so my Dad didn’t have to look. Chris stopped along the way to get him some dinner and a hot chocolate (his favourite beverage). He also had stocked the apartment with some food basics even though this wasn’t asked. It is not often that you find someone who will go the extra mile and beyond to take care of someone. I am so impressed with the kindness and consideration shown by Chris. You have found a real asset to your team. It is comforting to know that there are still people who have a big heart and will treat a complete stranger like family.
My family of 6 was looking for a quiet yet well located apartment to the main attractions for our stay in London. We were not disappointed. The apartment is minutes’ walk from the subway and walking distance from great shopping. The apartment suited our family of six very well too. We cannot say enough about Solly, the owner, and his support team. We were communicated with in detail and often prior to our stay and upon our arrival were picked up in a van, well received and instructed on how everything works. We were also given a well put together book on “everything we might need to know of the apartment, local area and London in general. A 10 in our book. Thanks Solly!
We had a great time in London in 2012, thanks to Eli and Solly. The apartment was very well located in the most exclusive neighborhood of Mayfair. We stayed four adults in this very quiet property that could surely accommodate six people. The apartment was very nice, well-maintained, fully furnished and spacious. Is has two bedrooms and two bathrooms, comfortable living room and fully equipped kitchen. The entrance of the building is modest and situated on a little street. The only downside for some people is that the flat is on a first floor with no lift and may be a little hot during summer. But regardless of that, it is very nice, close to all the amenities shops, stores, great restaurants, Hyde park, etc. and at walking distance from the underground. It was not our first time in the extraordinary city of London and surely not the last and I highly recommend this property to anyone who expects to find a pleasant, safe and very spacious apartment. We would definitely stay there again.
This lovely flat is ideal for groups. My group of 4 spent some time very comfortably. It really is in the perfect location. Walking distance to oxford circus, Piccadilly circus, Hoho, etc. And a short tube ride to anywhere else you’d want to go. Despite being in a very busy area, it is pretty quiet. Only downside is the flights of stairs, but I’d say that’s pretty standard for London. Thoroughly enjoyed my stay, and I would recommend this flat without any hesitation!.”
