  • Great location, very close to tube station and some very good shopping and food places. Instructions to find and access the flat were clear and easy to follow. We were warned about the stairs, which was good. Beds great, easy to make up the one in the lounge and all were comfortable.
    Flat was let down by being dirty - not on the surface, but deeper, mould around the windows, particular the bathroom and the floor behind the couches hadn't seen a vacuum for a while. The shower screen was gross, poorly applied filler, dirty and mouldy. The kitchen had good basics, though some cupboards had no top or bottom!! Thrown together, and very badly! The door to the flat did not lock properly and could easily have been bashed down. Wiring looked suspicious. TV reception was terrible, made contact with the 'contact' who possibly didn't come on the day asked, though came when Alice asked. TV reception really didn't improve. Cleaning - found a large, greased dildo in the bedroom behind a curtain which nearly made me sick! Did inform Alice about the dildo and the 'contact' deposed of it the following day.
    A few pounds spent on this flat and I believe that it would be worth the money that we paid. Please need a working light to see on the third floor at night.
    The flat was warm and again the location was great.

  • Unfortunatly we got issues with water, electricity and internet in only few days. Alice is very reactive but still everything should be checked before the guest arrival. Moreover, while the place is clean, the general maintenance of the place could somehow be improved. I rent several flats with AirBnb in Napoli, New York, etc and I was never disappointed or surprised by the difference between the internet pics and the reality. Well in brick Lane it was slightly different. Again it is a pity as Alice is really reactive to solve issues.

  • Great stay, great area, easy to find the adress and very handy to get the key at the safebox. App was sober but clean and fresh. All we needed for our business trip to London.

  • Nice place & location!

  • We had a absolutely awesome time in London. Thank you Alice and Vincent, your apartment was great.
    The apartment is well located in the heart of Banglatown and super-near to the Underground. At the weekend it was quite noisy because of the pub outside, but not disturbing for us. I loved the multicultural flair of the street.
    First we had some problems, cause the power was off. So we hadn't internet and heater. But Alice answered my message in a second and it was solved quickly. The internet is fast. There were no central heating, but the installed heaters in the sleeping and living room, so these rooms were cosy warm.
    the kitchen was fully equipped, everything a little old and falling apart. But it all worked fine and for the price you can't say anything. Also the entrance door is jammed. And the stairs aren't made for elderly and disabled persons. But we found it all charming.
    The apartment was tidy and clean, nothing to complain about.
    It's a perfect stay for everyone who wants to stay cheap and quite central.

  • I ike Airbnb's ways of providing matching services to both hosts + guests and bringing them into one community thus creating a win-win
    situation. Hence I hope my reviews can be genuine,clear and helpful.
    Vincent + Alice Miller are not outrightly factual on describing their properties and certainly they are not hosts but more like property's agent.
    Pictures of the property put up looked impressive but actuals were let downs. On enteing the building's main door, all the ways were slum with dirty, dark and unsafe passages and stairways leading to
    our unit, with a plank with lock acting as the door. To open or close the door, one had to give hard push. There were plenty of disappointments but we pulled through and was a great relief to
    leave the place.
    For the sake of this community, I plead that Airbnb be more strigent in the selection of both hosts and guests. As for agents they should try other avenues where there's legal bindings and proper controls on standards.

    Response from Vincent & Alice:

    We are absolutely not agents.
    The reason we have so have many apts is because we have been good hosts for almost 2.5 years with over 700 positive reviews.
    We make little from each property when you consider bills and taxes, therefore we have many apts to make it a worthwhile venture.
    Prices for a twin hotel room in this area are 200 pounds or more. Roger paid just 20 pounds per guest making this great value for money in the Heart of Shoreditch.
    This is the second review in which Roger has declared untruths (saying we don't provide internet when he couldn't get his internet working although it did work for everyone else in the building).
    We are always there for our guests and would be there at anytime if they had an urgent problem. Guests need to remember that we are only human and we do our best. We weren't made aware of his dissatisfaction during his stay.

  • Good accommodation and price/value. Great point to start exploring the city

  • Super cool location. Very easy to get around and simple clean, warm, convenient for EVERYTHING I needed during my time in London! Thanks so much guys! What a great holiday!

  • Very central in a great part of London. We arrived after dark and found the building easily but had some difficulty climbing the stairs and unlocking the door with suitcases in complete darkness as the lights weren't working. Windows in the hallway were also broken and were exposed to the elements. Having responded to an email from Vincent and Alice the week before asking if we would require both beds it was disappointing to find that this had been ignored and only one bed had been made up with no spare bedding available. This was a little awkward as I was visiting London with a friend that I didn't know too well and the bed was very small(!) I am five foot six and my feet hung out of the bottom :) The bed sharing situation eventually proved to be a godsend as there is no heating in the apartment and it was absolutely freezing!! We ended up going to bed early as it was too cold even aided by wine and in our coats, hats and gloves to sit and chat. Thankfully the water in the apartment was good and hot although it was too cold in the bathroom to brave a shower and the plug in the bath was missing.
    There are a lot of things that could have been done to make this a fantastic little apartment. It has great potential but sadly needs a bit of love and some thought for those who stay there to warrant a better rating.

    Response from Vincent & Alice:

    - There is heating in this apartment, so i'm not sure why they didn't turn this on.
    - Bedding for the extra guest was provided in the bedding storage within the sofa bed, so i guess they didn't not look as instructed in the instructions.
    - The window that is broken is in the apt stairwell and not in the apartment it's self.
    I am a bit confused by this review, as this is the first i've heard of her issues with her one night stay. We live 10 mins walk away and usually if a guest has an issue we to our best to fix the problem straight and we also have a full-time handy man to fix any lights etc. We are also contactable by phone.
