Everything was the same as the description, a very comfortable place and the location was perfect! Adam and Katie are a very friendly and lovebly couple.
Katie oli vastassa. Hän oli tosi ystävällinen, välitön ja luonnollinen. Katie antoi oma-aloitteisesti paljon hyödyllisiä tietoja ja vinkkejä liikkumisesta ja lähiympäristöstä. Adamin tapasimme vain kerran ja hän oli myös tosi ystävällinen ja kiinnostunut meidänkin kuulumisista sekä valmis auttamaan. Ympäristö tosi rauhallinen. Naapureita ei kuultu eikä nähty. Huoneisto mukava, omaa rauhaa riittävästi. Plussana, ainakin meille, joka iltainen kylpy ammeessa. Kulkuyhteydet keskustaan helposti saatavilla (bussit ja maanalainen).
We had an excellent stay in Adam's home. Nice bedroom and a clean bathroom for us. We enjoyed cooking at the kitchen and eating at the living room. We definitely recommend Adam's room!
We (a young couple on a short trip) had an awesome time at their appartment. They welcomed us warmly.
The bedroom was tidy and really nice. Fine furniture, good bed, really just perfect! Also the bathroom was clean and so cool. It is brandnew.
Katie & Adam are really easygoing, so friendly, helpful and nice.
It couldn't be better, really.
Also the house and neighborhood are great.
We can absolutely recommend to stay with Katie & Adam.
During our next visit in London (not planned yet, but will come definitely) we'll for sure want to stay with them again.
Adam and Katie were great hosts, very friendly and uncomplicated. Our room was very comfortable and tidy, same goes for the private bathroom. All in all a great experience, 10/10 would stay there again!
Could not recommend this accommodation more highly!! Great location (we felt very safe here and it's only a few mins walk from a tube station that takes you straight into the heart of London), a lovely apartment that is spotless and well equipped, and, last but not least, Adam and Katie are just the loveliest couple!! Very friendly and obliging (but not intrusive at all) and they gave us some great tips for our travels. It was our first stop on a big Europe trip and we couldn't have started on a better note :-) we hope to come back soon!
Mein Gastgeber war sehr freundlich, hilfsbereit und unkompliziert - sogar eine verspätete Anreise spät nachts war für ihn kein Thema. Die Wegbeschreibung war hervorragend, die Wohnung mit eigenem Badezimmer wie beschrieben sehr ruhig und sauber. Gute Tipps für London halfen uns weiter. Die U-Bahn Anbindung an das Stadtzentrum ist sehr gut. Die Küchenbenutzung war ebenso ohne Probleme möglich - wir fühlten uns gleich zu Hause.
