I’ve been here for 6 months. The EazyCity London management has been perfect till now.
The house is in a good state but the landlord should keep up with the maintenance in a more efficient way.
Everytime that there was a problem I contacted LondonEazy (EazyCity in London) and they have done all the possible to fix any issue in a timely manner.I would recommend EazyCity to my friends because the house is in a safe place, near the Tube and the public transports. Plus it’s more convenient than booking a hotel for a trip in London short or long term. And sharing the house with people from other countries is great to improve your English and a chance to interact with other cultures and possibly form friendships.
