  • We couldn't fault Donovan as a host. His communication was great and he provided us with helpful information about the room, the kitchen etc as well as local info. We only stayed one night as we were passing through London, so the location was ideal for us being central and close to all the big icons. Just a stones throw from the Thames, restaurants (email hidden) to run in the morning. There was another couple staying in another room and we all shared and bathroom which worked fine. Very nice and clean. The only downside was that the bed was small and the room was quite light at night time. It was also quite stuffy which meant we had to have the window open making it quite noisy. So not a great nights sleep. Donovan provided basic breakfast items to use which was really convenient, especially since we only stayed one (email hidden) to stay which could be improved with a better bed, some block out curtains and maybe a fan.

  • Donovan's apartment is neat and unique with very decent interior and facilities. The host himself is friendly and helpful allowing us an enjoyable stay in London!

  • Great Southbank location and Donovan runs his place like it is almost a full B&B including a basic larder to have breakfast. Quite detailed instructions but the flip side is the place is spotless. Very nice!

    June 2014
  • Die Unterkunft hat eine wunderbar zentrale Lage. Unser Zimmer war hell und sauber und der Gastgeber hat uns im Vorfeld mit zahlreichen Informationen versorgt. Von der perfekten Anreisebeschreibung bis hin zu Unmengen an Links über Londoner Veranstaltungen. Wir haben uns sehr wohl gefühlt.

  • Appartamento molto carino e davvero ben collegato (metro, bus, treni). Non completamente accessibile e attrezzato per disabili con sedia a rotelle, anche se noi (tre persone di cui una in carrozzella) abbiamo comunque soggiornato senza particolari difficoltà. Donovan è disponibile e gentile.

  • It (email hidden) to stay, quite near to the tube. Only fifty meters to a street with good restaurants, a supermarket and ATM. Donovan is very friendly, provided us with a lot of information in advance: a perfect description of the way to his flat, many links to points of interest in London. The room and the facilities were in a very good order, clean and quite. The kitchen is fully equipped and he provided breakfast for free.

  • Très bon séjour chez Donovan.
    L'appartement est bien situé pour visiter Londres, à deux pas de la gare de Waterloo qui permet de rayonner en métro ou bus dans Londres.
    L'environnement est très calme et la chambre très propre, conforme à nos attentes.
    Donovan a pris soin à ce que nous ayons tout ce qu'il nous fallait pour le petit-déjeuner et autres équipements. Très bon accueil, adresse à recommander !
