  • Good location, good price, helpful host, I recommend!

  • Recommend this flat for the location, would not recommend it to those looking for much from the flat itself. It is a bit cramped for two people and luggage, Internet and TV reception was spotty, very minimal/low-quality furnishings and housewares. Clean enough in the flat although the apartment building is dirty and unkempt. Lucy is hard to reach but pleasant when she does communicate back and she accommodated our late arrival time with no problem, which we really appreciated.

  • Leuke buurt! Appartement is klein maar ruimte genoeg voor 2 personen, geen uitzicht. Prijs kwaliteit verhouding is aan de lage kant.

  • Good things about apt:

    * Bathroom was very clean
    * Host was quite responsive and we got into apt very easily
    * It is really near to all interesting places in soho
    * There was a heater

    Not really great things:

    * Apartments are really very small, that's sort of what we expected, but still it wasn't really comfortable for us
    * There is some sort of ventilation system outside right near the window in the room, so you could always hear some noise from it when sleeping
    * The shower was just impossible to use, it was constantly switching from very hot to very cold water

  • The apartment was what we expected and the location is just perfect! We also had troubles with the shower: it was either steaming hot or freezing cold and we could find out what we did wrong or if it was broke..

  • Très bien situé. On est arrivé plus tard que prévu et elle nous a gentiment attendu et tout expliqué. Le dernier jour, notre vol était tard et nous avons pu laisser nos valise dans la chambre.
    Par contre gros soucis avec la douche où il n'était pas possible de régler le thermostat correctement, sur 5 c'est glacial et sur 6 bouillant... Alors, la douche et le lavement de cheveux à l'eau froide c'est pas très sympa! Surtout que le sèche-cheveux est mort après 1 min d'utilisation...
    Mais, à part ces quelques inconvénients c'était très bien et je le recommande.

  • The room was as described. It's very central and absolutely fine for an overnight stay in central London.

  • The flat was extremely small, but that was expected, so no surprises there. For 2 people its a little too small for my taste, and - most importantly - toilets door doesn't fully close! Also the building hallway had no lights - we had to use a flashlight when we got back at night.
    The flat is very well equipped with a fridge, microwave, electrical stove, dishes etc. only thing missing is a coffee pot or a kettle to boil water for morning coffee or tea.
    The location is perfect. Best neighborhood in London, close to the underground, lots of restaurants, pubs, theatres etc.
    The main problem was that lucy was very hard to reach.
    Before our trip i was trying to contact her to schedule a time to meet, get the keys and so on, and it took a while for her to answer, which was very stressful. I only spoke with her the day before my flight. Also, when i got there, even though our agreement was to talk on whatsapp when i land, since i didnt have a phone plan coming from abroad, she almost never checked her messages, i had to wait almost 2 hrs to reach her after i got to london, and even then it was only after i bought (website hidden) minutes so i could call her.
    Same thing happened when we had a problem with the shower - the water temperature wouldnt settle, and it would go from freezing clod to boiling hot, and back to freezing cold and so on every few seconds. It took a while to reach her so that it could be fixed. And it also took a while to fix it but i suppose thats understandable, even though we ended up not being able to take a shower fro 2 days.
    When she was reached, eventually - she was very pleasant and friendly, but it was still problematic.
    All in all - i wouldn't really recommend it. I don't think its worth the price and i bet we could do better for the same range of price.
