I would recommend Zion Flats to any young professionals looking for a room in London. The staff is extremely friendly, with any issues being resolved the same day! The location of my flat was perfect; just a short walk from two different tube lines. My room was lovely - nice layout, bright, and clean, with a lovely yellow wall which I loved! I actually think I've been sleeping better here than my own bed back home which surprised me!!! If I ever find myself living in London in the future I will definitely go back to Zion Flats 🙂

I would totally recommend Zion Flats for their clean rooms and excellent service. Both Andy and Ash are very responsive and it's obvious that making you feel good in your temporary home is their most important mission. They proved to be very helpful even before I moved in - always answering my calls and texts and providing me with the exact information I had asked for. So much so, that I rented my room without even doing a viewing! I trusted the pictures on their very easy-to-use website and I found just what I had expected based on the pics. The process of securing my room was very simple and straightforward; the advance payment is made in secure conditions even if you're abroad like I was. Definitely lucky to have chosen this agency.
