Other Things to Note
For any question regarding your holiday or the property I will be happy to help.
Stephan was very helpful and showed me around the place. We had a wonderful stay at their place. Would definitely recommend to everyone. Really close to central London makes it a bonus point!
La descripción del aviso era exacta. La ubicación es excelente, sobre todo para los turistas con estadía de pocos días en la ciudad para estar cerca de los puntos más importantes. El apartamento era muy cómodo y limpio. El anfitrión fue muy amable y cordial.
Merci à Tony et Stephan pour leur accueil. On a pu se joindre par téléphone avant l'arrivée. Stephan nous attendait pour nous accueillir.
Echange très sympathique, et de bon conseil, avec l'assurance de pouvoir se joindre en cas de problème. L'appartement correspond parfaitement à la description et est vraiment proche du centre. Le bus est quasiment "au pied de l'immeuble", le long de la Tamise, et Westminster, london Eyes à 15 mn à pieds.
Stephan & Tony made our first AirBnB and London experience easy and comfortable. Stephan met us at the flat and gave us a tour. He was very kind and eager to give suggestions of where to explore. The flat was spacious and clean. We were given linens and toiletries (toothpaste, shampoo, body wash) which was great! Stephan & Tony were even kind enough to include tons of pamphlets with public transportation and sight seeing information which was of great help to us!
The flat is situated about a 10 minute walk to a major tube/bus/DLR station and is right across the way from the Albert Embankment which offered some AMAZING views of the House of Parliament. It was also about a 10 minute walk to the London Eye. The flat is two stops away from the Victoria Tube Station (Victoria Line) which connects to other major tube lines to get you into London.
Just a note - the area around the flat is currently undergoing construction. You don't hear any construction noise but some street signs are blocked due to work site barriers. We missed the turn onto Salamanca Street because of this and ended up getting a little lost. Just be aware that if you pass Black Prince Road, you have gone too far!
We wanted to get a taste of both worlds for our first trip to London: how the locals live and also seeing the big sites. Tony & Stephen's flat was able to provide us with the best and we had a great time. I definitely recommend this space!
This was a great place to stay in a very nice, quiet neighborhood that had everything we needed nearby including a fantastic little hole-in-the-wall local pub! If you're looking for a place close to the river by, but not in, many of the big attractions, you'd be hard pressed to do better. Highly recommended.
About the Host, Tony & Stephan
We are Tony and Stephan, Frenchmen and we have been living in London for years.
We a very sociable and open-minded person, enjoy travelling and discovering new cultures and traditions. Between the two of us, we had diverse travel experiences such as a "take-it-easy" Moroccan trip, a tropical forest trek in Venezuela and a road trip on Route 66 throughout California.
We both enjoy sports, especially Football.
Tony's loves going to cinema with regularly but Stephan is more of the live performance type such as Concert, Ballet or Theater.
The South Bank is our preferred place for such events with its BFI cinema for art-house films, and the Royal Festival Hall for its multicultural concerts and much more.
Now, just for the record, anyone who dislikes any of F. Dostoyevsky's books will not be allowed in the flat!!!
I'm just joking... more seriously, he wrote my favorite book which is The Brothers Karamazov.
G. Orwell's 1984 comes second and H. de Balzac's La peau de Chagrin is third.
Yes, I'm quite passionate about books.
That's it for our introduction!
If you need any information regarding the place, us or anything else, do not hesitate to contact us.
Thanks for reading and have a memorable holidays!!!
