For those interested in history: Bloomsbury was developed by the Russell family in the 17th and 18th centuries into a fashionable residential area. It is notable for its array of garden squares, literary connections (exemplified by the Bloomsbury Group) and numerous cultural, educational and healthcare institutions.
Historically, Bloomsbury is associated with the arts, education and medicine. The area gives its name to the Bloomsbury Group (also Bloomsbury Set) of artists, the most famous of whom was Virginia Woolf. The publisher Faber & Faber is in Queen Square (former Editor: T. S. Eliot). Also, the Pre-Raphaelite Brotherhood was founded in John Millais’s parents’ house on Gower Street in 1848.
It was my fifth time to stay with James and Akbar and again the welcome was warm and generous, there is nothing contrived about the atmosphere in the apartment. Sadly my visit was short but the good news is I will be staying with the lads again this April!
Really lovely people, really lovely flat in a fantastic location. It's what it says, a fab place to stay.
Staying in that friendly and comfortable environment was like home from home. Akbar was very helpful and a mine of information about the best way to travel and getting around London. And then there is the view . . . I felt like Mary Poppins :-) . . . London at my feet ! Thank you very much for a most enjoyable stay. I'll be back !
Great hosts, super interesting, and very helpful. They even offered me dinner, then in the morning breakfast. We had a great visit, really enjoyed the company, and enjoyed a comfortable night.
I stayed at James & Akbar's place only for a night but it was a great experience. The location couldn't be better than this and the room & its view were just perfect! Even though i didn't really get to know them in person since i was there to take a rest and recover from food poisoning, they were so nice to offer me a cozy & clean room with a breakfast in the morning. Akbar also offered me one more thick blanket knowing that i was sick, it was so nice of him. Thanks for this awesome airbnb experience! :)
James and Akbar are the perfect hosts. They are warm, clever, and full of excellent advice about things to do in London. The apartment is centrally located and, as shown in the pictures, has sweeping views of the city and is tastefully decorated.
Friendly hosts, apartment was clean and in a very convenient location. No complaints :)
James and Akbar we're fantastic hosts. They accommodated a later arrival time, made are I was well fed and were fun to hang out with. Akbar whipped up some stir fry and shared when I got back late from my meetings. Great location especially during the tube strike to get everywhere I needed. Highly recommend staying with them!
Akbar & James are amazing persons! They really make you feel like home and part of their family. Always trying to help you.
The appartment is very good located, secure and lovely. From the appartment you will be able to get around all london quickly and easy.
This is The best place to stay!!!
Fantastic apartment in a really great location. Very clean and amazing views that you will never get sick of looking at.
Thoroughly enjoyed my time here, only wish I could have stayed longer. James and Akbar were more than accommodating as too was their friend Tan who house sat for a few days. I felt like I was in my own home.
I definitely recommend this place !
