The apartment is in a very good location. It is about a 5 minute walk to the bus, underground, or rail station. A lot of the tourist sites are nearby. It is in a quiet neighborhood, and we felt very safe. The kitchen had appliances in great working condition. The beds were very comfortable. The apartment was clean and well maintained. The only negative aspect of the apartment was it tended to get a bit stuffy, but that was easily remedied by opening the windows and patio doors when at the apartment which always provided a good, refreshing breeze! Mary also provided fans in each bedroom, so we never felt hot while sleeping. If you have a problem, Mary is always a quick e-mail away with an equally quick response. We had a great stay and would highly recommend this apartment and host!!

There are 2 good points about this apartment, it is very central and it is quite large. However the property has become quite run down, is in a grim neighbourhood and communication from the host was very poor. As previous reviews have mentioned the heating is way too hot which can make sleeping difficult. This has the feel of a run down rental flat, rather than the airbnb concept of hosting travellers. I wouldn't stay here again.

Dear Selena, I am sincerely sorry about your experience with the neighbourhood. I couldn't control the London heat during those days. Had you mentioned to me I could have sent you some tips. I am planning to put them in the description for other guests.

Our stay was flawless. Mary was quick and easy to communicate with. She gave us very detailed instructions on how to get to the flat and they were clear and easy to follow. The flat was much closer to E&C tube station than we had expected. Mary had an extra bed left out for us as we had an extra person and she even left us a pizza and some cereal. The flat was in a great location, close to a Tesco and very central and no more than a few stops to anywhere we wanted to go. Lovely host and a lovely stay, thank you.

I am sad to say that this was not a plessant stay. I never met mary, but she was nice to let us check out lste, she gave us two set of keys when we asked for it, and that was great. But the apt was not like the picture. It seemed worn down, 70%of all the light bulps was not working and there wasn't new once to change them with. The linnens were stained in BOTH rooms, so i wonder if they were changed at all. The floors were dirty and the bathroom was moldy and gross. The air in the apt was sort of moist and not good for you. It really needs some renovation.

Response from Mary:
Hi Malin, I'm sorry to hear about your experience. Had you mentioned to me I would have advised you that the lights intensity could be adjusted. I just thought it was obvious as it's a knob that can be turned and not a simple switch. All the bed clothes were fresh/washed as you could even smell the laundry scent. I personally changed them. Regarding the moist, as we are still in winter it's a bit normal but it's just a matter of open the windows. Once again, had you mentioned to me all your concerns I would have explained you or visited you to show you. I am always available to all my guests and moreover I live very close by. All the best, Mary
