처음에 숙소 어떻게 찾아가냐고 물었을때 아파트 이름이나 호수를 알려주지 않았다. 그게 크게 문제가 되었다.
숙소는 찾기 쉬운데 있었지만 처음가는 길이라서 못차자서 한참을 해맸고 유심이 안되는 상황에 급하게 로밍을 해서 도움을 요청했지만 답이 없었다.
그래서 많은 돈을 들여 로밍을 했고 구글앱으로 집은 찾았지만 아무도 응답이 없었고 몇호인지 도 물어봤지만 답이 없어서 늦음밤 11시가 훌쩍넘어갈때까지 밖에서 기다려야했고 결국 그 아파트에 사는 현지 사람의 도움으로 아파트 안에 들어갈 수 있었다.
그사람이 없었다면 아마 밖에서 밤을 샐수도있었을것 같다.
이런것에 대한 사전에 어떻게 대처해야하는지 미리 알려주는 호스트와 달리 알려주지 않아서 어려움이 많았고
방은 다 좋았지만 매트리스가 정말 안좋았다.
4일을 자고나니 허리가 아팠다.
이동하고 하는데는 위치가 좋았다.
We really enjoyed the stay at the room, although we didn't get to meet the hosts until the very last minute. The check in was very easy anyway. The room was as shown in the pictures and fairly clean. The bathrooms were ok, too and there was a seperate bathroom and toilette, which was very pleasent. The location of the flat was also very nice for the prize and it was easy going into the centre by bus and tube.
We didn't meet our host Oliver, but the woman he had to open his place and welcome us was very nice. This listing was exactly what we needed: not something especially glamorous, but a place in London to crash for the night and keep our things. The location was really good, only like a 10 minutes walk to the Tube station!!
We did not meet Oliver, but his property manager was very accommodating. We didn't arrive until close to midnight, and she was happy to meet us. The location was easy to find from the train station and it wasn't far to Shoreditch, where we next needed to be. Key was difficult to use from the inside - perhaps it will be fixed before the next guest arrives. The room was just as described. It was nice to have a secure entrance - certainly felt safe.
Room was clean and met our needs; pretty basic accommodations. Listing for this room is accurate and the flat is located in a nice neighborhood, conveniently close to a Tube stop and a couple restaurants and small grocery stores. Maria, the apartment manager, is very responsive to questions and requests, and met us early on our check in day to allow us to leave our bags, even before the room was formally available to us.
I did not meet the host, but over the phone I was able to receive helpful support regarding the checkin.
The room was well maintained with basic furnitures necessary for a shot stay. It certainly was good for the price.
The location was also wonderful, within a few minutes' walk from Old Street. Also some hip areas like shore ditch is in a walking distance.
Overall highly recommended for a short term stay!
The listing was accurate. The place was clean. We had a designated room in an apartment. The bath was fine and clean enough. We didn't look for a kitchen. Very satisfied with the place. Never saw a human during this visit at this apartment. The hosts took care via phone.
