We stayed four days in Andrews house and everything was fine! Comfy room with a great bed, only 3 minutes walk to the tube, a little supermarket on the way. Andrew took care of us all the Time and his advices for London were fantastic!!
Great location, great room, very clean.
Andrew is nice and always ready to help if you need him
I recommend it !
The room Andrew provided was clean and comfortable and right next to a convenient subway station. Unfortunately, I believe his execution as a host was badly handled. I received 2 comprehensive word documents and several emails of instructions for my one night stay and without a printer, it was impossible to remember every single detail. Firstly, despite stating he was away for the weekend, when I arrived Andrew was still there and though I had checked in, he was wondering in and out of my room to access his balcony which I felt was invasive. Secondly, whilst out for the evening in a venue with limited reception, I checked my phone toward the end of the evening I realised I had received hours earlier many long winded messages from Andrew demanding I return to the apartment at once because he had more guests arriving and no keys were available. I felt that as he left after I had arrived he should have checked the key situation and should have had a back-up rather than wishful thinking that someone in London for one night could drop everything to accommodate his second set of guests across London. I was not informed that there were a second set of guests arriving and I must have misunderstood the instructions regarding the keys, as I was told to remove the keys from the safe and not return them until I had checked out and to use them and take them with me in between. Unfortunately, I could not break my engagement (I had traveled many hours to make this one event) and though I tried to contact Andrew to apologize for the misunderstanding and contacted him the following morning again whilst I checked out, I received no response and had no idea whether the situation had been resolved. As a result of an overload of information, Andrew not checking if keys were left for his second lot of guests and not informing me about them, and not having a back-up plan for misunderstandings, my night, Andrew’s night and the second set of guests night were very stressful. I believe as a host he could be more direct and have more back up plans when things do not run smoothly.
Tahney is a highly selfish absent-minded incompetent guest that does not fit the remit of the Airbnb community.
I aim to pre-empt all variables to assist my future guests with easy-to-follow helpful instructions like:
Public transport routes to my apartment.
Convenient 24-hour check-in via a key safe system.
A ‘Welcome Pack’ is sent out as soon as the booking is made. And it is followed up with another email 24 hours before arrival, with the ‘Key Code’ & any other important information. In this case it was to leave the second set of keys in the safe. Only an absent minded person would take both sets of identical of keys, especially after replying to the reminder email were she said she understood.
I do not make the accusation of Tahney being incompetent and absent minded without good cause. I received ten emails from Tahney saying that she could not open the door to leave the apartment via the stairs. The door in question was open and never gets locked. Tahney was unable to open an unlocked door?
My airbnb is my home and I provide clean sheets & towels, I dry them on the balcony, which is accessed through this listing. I took my laundry & hung them to dry without any discomfort to Tahney, unless the action of housekeeping offends her.
Guests of the airbnb community are competent mind-full people that love to travel. I cannot associate this level of selfish behavior with a lover of travel via the airbnb platform.
Andrew was an exceptional host and made me feel as though i was at home. Towels were supplied and the room was clean, absolutely nothing to complain about or dislike. The location was very convenient with Leyton station and asda nearby. Would definitely recommend!
Très bonne expérience chez Andrew, le logement est très fidèle aux photos postées. La chambre est très confortable, dispose d'informations utiles sur la ville, et les petites attentions sont appréciables (la chambre a été nettoyée pendant notre séjour). Les parties communes étaient aussi très propre, particulièrement la salle de bain. Andrew est sympathique, bien organisé et très rapide en cas de questions. Le gros plus de cet appartement est aussi sa location, très proche du métro, qui dessert tout le centre de Londres. Adresse à recommander!
It's my second time in Andrew's house. He welcome me well as usual. I stayed in the same room as previously and enjoyed the proximity of the house with the underground station (3 mn).
We visited our friends in London and needed to stay for one night. We arrived late and Andrew warned us that he will not be at home and let us chek-in when we want and he will leave us the keys. This was our first experience with Airbnb and all the descriptions and instructions were helpful and easy to understand. The room was as describbed and everything was ok.

Hi fellow travellers, thanks for noticing my listings.
I've been hosting through Airbnb since the 2012 London Olympics. I absolutely love it, it makes travel and visiting different countries affordable, and I can offer my experience as a Londoner to all visitors on London city breaks. I am a telecommunications electrician, and my job takes me nationwide throughout the UK, so I host Airbnb as I often work away from home. My apartment is literally one-minute walk away from the London Underground Station, Central line, the red one. So visiting the City of London and the West End is super convenient. I have strong Wi-Fi, powerful shower, London guides and maps, secure flexible check-in. I always return email contact within ten minutes GMT. If you decide to stay at my apartment, I will forward onto you a welcome pack with easy-to-follow instructions on how to arrive at my apartment from all London airports, plus other very important information. I am an experienced Airbnb host; you will have a hassle free pleasurable experience – See you all soon!
