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.
Genrerally a very nice stay
Nice photographer definately added icing on the cake
Perfect Accommodation, everything was clean and comfortable. I think, this place is perfect for young people visiting London for a couple of days. Other guests, with whom I was sharing the flat were really nice as well.
Location is super central and very close to the best area in London: Shoreditch :)
Thank you !!!
