Overall Guest Satisfaction

Check In
  • It was wonderful to stay at Loan's appartment. Both Loan and Miha were helpful, friendly and it felt like staying with friends more than as a guest. Plus the appartment is amazing, with lots of light and tastefully decorated. Hope can go back there next year!

  • Loan's beautiful home exceeded my expectations. I was welcomed so warmly and graciously, especially as I had missed my train and arrived later than I had originally planned. My room and own bathroom were immaculate and full of elegance and comfortable style. I was at a 3 day intensive dance exhibition at Olympia, and the joy of that wonderful shower and comfortable bed made the weekend possible for my hard working, tired body. Loan even shared her home made cookies with me which were also a special treat. She was also extremely generous about my checking out on the last day, and I came back at the end of the day for a final shower before packing and heading away. Much appreciated. I would stay here again without question and recommend it very highly to anyone. My warmest thanks to her for everything.

  • Loan and her husband are kind, helpful and 100% perfect hosts. We only have nice words to describe them as they really went the extra mile to make us feel comfortable and enjoy our stay.
    The house is also perfect, beautiful, extremely close to the metro and very bright. We would totally come back!
    Thank you Loan!

  • We had a wonderful time in London and with Loan and Mahir. They are very warm and friendly and the appartment is just lovely. Very clean, cosy and quiet. A perfect surrounding for a trip to London. Everything is easy to reach with bus or tube. We highly recommend this address and we would love to come back to Laons and Mahirs beautiful place.

  • I don't think I can put in words how wonderful my stay at Loan's charming home in Kensington was. From my initial enquiry right through to my leaving, Loan was the most gracious and hospitable host. The home is divine and the location supreme. Extremely close to the tube and bus stop..everything you could want for and more in London is right at your door. The home itself is impeccable and Loan went out of her way to ensure I had everything I needed to make my stay an experience to remember. The overall experience surpasses many hotels and apartments I've stayed at world wide. Sharing your travels with people who are kind, generous, warm and open their home to you like family is rare and deserves recognition. I'll definitely be staying again when I return to London. 5 stars

  • We had spend a week in Loans and Mahir apartment and this was the best part of our stay in London. His apartment is so nice, with a lot of windows and full of love and light. Since the first day, they make us feel at home. We really love the experience of staying with them.

    September 2013
  • Loan and her partner Mahir were both very welcoming and pleasant hosts. Communication beforehand was great and Loan was very helpful. Their home was lovely and improvements are being made to make it even nicer! I was in London for a show at the Olympia and I couldn't have picked a more convenient location. This was my first airbnb experience and based on this stay it won't be my last.

    September 2013
  • Beautiful flat, great location and fantastic hosts who made me feel really welcome. I would definitely recommend staying here.

    August 2013
  • Loan and Mahir's apartment is fabulous! My partner and I stayed with them for 2 nights and had a lovely time. Their apartment is located about 1 minute from the Kensington Olympia overground station and 10-15 minutes from Kensington High Street (by walking) so very convenient. The room is full of natural light, nicely furnished, the bed is very comfy and the private bathroom is huge. This apartment is beautifully renovated but the best part about this place is the hosts. Loan and Mahir are so friendly, welcoming, funny and wonderful hosts. We loved getting to know them during our stay and shared many laughs, I hope to meet them again next time we're in London because we truly loved staying with them. Thank you for everything!

    August 2013
  • It's a perfect airbnb experience I should say! We are so lucky to live in Loan & Mahir's lovely apartment! It's clean, in a quiet neighborhood, and also convenient to everywhere. And the most important thing is that Loan & Mahir are the wonderful hosts, we had evening talks, shared stories of each other, and they were always ready to give a hand to us! Thanks, my dear friends, you made us at home in London!
