This was our first airbnb and Nargess was a great host. She greeted us and provided all information on the first day. We even had some additional requests during the stay and Nargess was very responsive and made our trip very smooth and easy. The location of the flat is excellent (even if there was a Tube strike one day) and all the details were just as described. For two people, it's an ideal place to say. There's nothing better than beating the crowd at the Portobello market on Saturday morning. I would definitely recommend staying here!
What a fantastic experience! She was such a gracious host and I absolutely loved the apartment. Perfect location too. I will stay there again.
Nargess was a wonderful host. She made it easy for us to meet her upon our arrival at the flat, and greeted us with helpful information about the place and the neighborhood. We stayed for several weeks and she was easy to communicate with and quickly responded to any questions we had. The flat is exactly as advertised -- the pictures capture it perfectly. It was a good size for two people and everything was clean and in good working order. I can't say enough great things about the neighborhood. Being steps from the Tube station made it easy to get anywhere we wanted to go in London, although there were so many great places within a short walk of the apartment, we enjoyed spending much of our time checking out Notting Hill restaurants and shops or walking through the nearby park.
Wonderful communication and greeting from Nargess! She was kind enough to organise it for us to check-in a little early, as well as check-out a little late due to our flight times. The flat was exactly as presented, if not better. Very well appointed (even stocked the fridge with eggs, butter, milk, jam and bread), very clean, and in a great location. We will definitely be back! Thank you!
P.S. Quick wifi! :)
Nargess made us feel very welcome. We were greeted by her, she showed us around and answered our questions. She left eggs, milk and butter in the refrigerator.
The apt was very clean and well stocked with paper goods and cleaning products.
The area was what we expected in Nottinghill. Easy to access the underground, just down the street. Coffee shops and restaurants, all at a short walking distance.
The house was easy to access from the street, on the first floor and only a few steps up to the entry.
The bathroom was a bit strange, mostly taken up by a huge bathtub that did not work. The wash basin bowl was very small and the water from the faucet would splash all over the floor.
The beds were a bit strange and uncomfortable, the main bed was encased by a wide wood frame. Difficult to get in and out of. The second bed was a cot that could only hold someone 100 lbs or less.
The electricity outlets required a special adapter to charge cell phones. The ones we brought would not fit. We had to find a hardware store and buy the compatible adapters.
All in all I would recommend this house, loved the kitchen and the lighting was wonderful. Good place to stay!
My wife and I spent 6 nights here and the apartment was excellent. The bed was comfortable and the kitchen was more than functional. The building was extremely quiet at night, and the neighborhood is very safe. We walked back to the apartment after midnight on a few occasions and the streets were quiet but well lit.
The bathroom has been remodeled recently. The fixtures are a little awkward, but everything works well and had been thoroughly cleaned.
We used the clothes washer once and it worked perfectly.
Overall, I would recommend this apartment and would stay here in the future.

About the Host, Nargess
I am a person who is positive about every aspect of life. There are many things I like to do, to see and to experience. I like to think, to talk and to listen. I like to smell the wind coming from the ocean. I like to look at the clear sky. I like flowers in spring, rain in summer, leaves in autumn, and snow in winter. I like the countrysides' peace. I like walking. I like comfortable shoes. I like good books and true movies. I like the mountains and nature, I like people. I like to smile. I hope that my impression about myself and your impression about me are not so different.
