  • This was a perfect location for our visit to a Chelsea FC football game. Just minutes away. The nearby Fulham Rd offered pubs and super market. The bedroom and bath were comfortable. As we sometimes had time on our hands and needed to hang out at our digs, I did not feel encouraged to do that in the sitting room (pictured) though we were encouraged to watch their large TV for sports events.
    Would be particularly good for someone who'd be coming and going.
    Simon was a cordial host.

  • Simon's well-furnished apartment is modern and luxurious and it was perfect for my stay in London. Since I only stayed in London for five days, I traveled extensively and was always happy to get back to my quiet room and the comfortable bed. The room is perfectly sized for the constant traveler - it's not too big and not too small, and the very modern washroom, although not connected to the room, is conveniently adjacent to the room. The neighborhood has many restaurants and pharmacies and the metro is only a one to two minute walk away. Simon is kind, accommodating, and also well-traveled! Next time I'm in London, I would love to book Simon's place again!

  • If you need a clean, private, luxurious room, look no further: this place is fantastic. It is especially good if you only require a bedroom and bathroom--and not an area to stretch out in. The living area, as beautiful as it is, is off limits to Air BnB'ers. Kitchen time is limited to 1.5 hrs--which suited us just fine. The room and bathroom are on the main floor and are not shared (Simon and his girlfriend spend their time upstairs) so it often feels like you're own private flat. The location is very well located for transportation and exploring on foot. Simon was courteous, respectful, and accommodating.

  • Simon is really a great host and it has been my first time to try out airbnb and stay in london! The room is cosy and the renovation is very modern and nice. The bed is extremely soft and there is a TV where you can watch on bed. I have been staying in Simon's home for several days with my friend to explore London before my exchange studies and such a warm home definitely made our trip even better.
    One of the best part is the car service offered by Simon from airport. He is such a great host and willing to give us a lift to Heathrow at early morning to make our trip more convenient.
    The neighborhood in Fulham is pretty nice and the subway is very near. We would definitely love to stay again whenever we have the opportunity!

  • We love Simon's place, not just the apartment but also the neighborhood ( just next to Chelsea's posh neighborhood ). We really enjoyed our stay because the apartment has all the things we needed for our two weeks stay in London. The apartment is very well furnished with beautiful interior design. The bed was very comfortable and it has modern kitchen and bathroom. The tube (Fulham Broadway) and bus stations were just across the road, two minutes walk from the apartment. The neighborhood is quiet , safe and has many good restaurants too. As a host, Simon was very attentive , responsive and friendly. From the day we booked the place until he sent us to the airport, he was there to assist us. We would certainly book Simon's place again and recommend others to stay at his place. Thank you Simon !

  • Simon's house was modern and clean and we had our own private bathroom. It was very conveniently located: just a 2 min walk to Fulham Broadway metro station; the neighbourhood also had lots of good bars and restaurants and a supermarket. The room had a comfy bed, but it was a little tight for two people. I should mention, also, that the living room pictured on his listing isn't actually available for use (though that didn't really bother us as we were able to use the kitchen). Moreover, Simon charges 7 Pounds for a load of washing. Overall, it was a great stay!

  • Simon was a great host, with full meaning. I stayed at his place for 18 nights and he made me feel that it's a home away from my home. Since day one, he welcomed me at his place and gave me the keys, and I felt that this is my London place. It was very nice room that had a double bed which was very comfy. The bathroom was private to me and looked amazing, as well as it was very clean.

    The area is amazing around the house and nearby all the amenities and tube station.

    I would definitely come and stay at Simons again because of his warm welcome and outstanding manners.

    Also I preferred my experience at Simons place on London hotels, where it was best for its value.

    I recommend Simons place for you and promise you and pleasurable stay!

About
Our spare room is available for a great London experience and our flat has been recently renovated to a high boutique hotel standard. You would have your own private bathroom with large shower and share the kitchen with us. Fulham is a great area close to all major attractions. We enjoy hosting people from all over the world via AirBnB and try hard to make our guests feel as comfortable as possible in their home away from home :) We can provide lots of personal recommendations for things to experience in Fulham and beyond so you maximise your time in the best way possible. Travel is my passion having seen 109 nations on all 7 continents so I know the demands of international travellers. My favourite places to visit were Santorini in the Greek Islands, Rajastan in India, Cape Town in South Africa, Rio de Janiero in Brasil, St Tropez in the South of France and Japan. We hope you enjoy London, a city we love, and Carpe Diem in life!
