We had a wonderful time in Ariel's flat! The apartment was great, well appointed and centrally located. Lots of great restaurants and bars in the area. Also a short walk to the Old Street tube station made it convenient to get to other areas of London. We highly recommend this flat for your trip to London!
We really enjoyed ariels apartment! It Is large, totaly new, beautiful, modern and well equipped - from a coffee machine to a washing machine :). We felt generosity in this apartment. The Grocery store is just 30 seconds walk , within 2 minutes walk there are some nice cafes and the subway station is 6-7 minute walk. We had a great holiday there !
Great apartment, great location.
3 close tube stops making it central to everything.
State of the art London university gym right on the corner for only 10 pounds! The best deal for working out in all of London!
Ariel was quick to respond to any questions and his suggestion list was spot on for coffee and meals.
I would definitely stay here again.
Thanks Ariel for making my stay in London relaxed and enjoyable.
Ariel, was extremely helpful in helping us to check in with a very last minute notice (couple of hours) and saved the day. I would recommend this delightful apartment to anyone looking for a quiet place nestled right near by St. Luke Church and all its charm, yet, moments away from all the vibrant life East London has to offer.
Ariel was a super lovely host. I settle down with my daughter in the flat for 9 days, he always reply me very quickly and patient. The location was wonderful which there is a Tesco just by 2 minutes walk and a gym by the city University by 3 minutes walk. There are plenty of towels and beddings to change and the flat is really clean and quite. But you just need to be a bit careful if you have a lot luggages because the flat is on the third floor with no lift. There are plenty of cooking tools in the kitchen to use. Strongly recommended!
Nice location and central to the design houses of Clerkenwell. I had a pleasant stay, and Ariel was accommodating to my needs. The bed was comfortable too, and I slept well.
It is a walk up unit, but its not bad at all. There was a bit of confusion around my arrival, but we worked it out.

About the Host, Ariel
I am a well travelled, hard working entrepreneur, until the day comes when I can retire in a pad walking distance to a nice surfing spot. For now I am your key to our great city of London.
