Estivemos com Paul e Milka durante quatro ou cinco dias.
O apartamento é extremamente limpo, o banheiro excelente. O quarto é um pouco pequeno, não havendo disponibilidade aos hóspedes dos armários existentes. Até o espaço embaixo da cama encontrava -se ocupado com malas do casal, não havendo ,portanto, muito espaço para as nossas próprias malas.
O acesso é excelente, com uma estação do metrô na porta do prédio, além de várias linhas de ônibus, por conta da Universidade, em frente.
Beaucoup d'avantages +++
- L'appartement, qui a une vue incroyable sur la City, est extrêmement bien desservi par les métro (zone 1) et bus. C'est simple, les transports se situent à la sortie de l'immeuble.
- Deux supermarchés sont à proximité de la sortie de métro. Tout est très simple pour profiter de tous ces services.
- Les indications de Paul, avant d'arriver, sont très précises. Une fois sur place, il est facile de trouver l'appartement.
- La chambre privée, à l'écart des autres pièces, face à la porte d'entrée (très pratique !), et la salle de bain partagée sont très propres.
- Nous n'avons pas eu l'occasion de discuter beaucoup avec nos hôtes qui sont discrets. Aussi discrets que nous l'étions, c'était parfait.
- Le Wifi fonctionne très bien, les codes sont disponibles, sur papier, dans la chambre dès l'arrivée.
- L'eau chaude de la douche est moyennement chaude.
- La chambre est petite : pour deux, c'est un peu juste. D'autant plus qu'il n'y a aucun rangement possible. Pas de quoi faire suspendre des affaires, pas de quoi utiliser l'armoire qui est déjà remplie d'affaires personnelles. Même sous le lit, c'est déjà pris ! Toutes les affaires doivent donc rester dans les sacs.
En fait, cette chambre conviendrait très bien à une personne seule pour quelques jours.
My first Airbnb visit so I didn't know the drill but Paul and Milka were very welcoming and helpful. Their flat was very nicely presented and clean and the bed was really comfy. The view of London was great too!
Me and my girlfriend have been in this apartment for three days. Paul is very kind, and he gave us all the informations we needed (and the baby is WONDERFUL). Our bedroom was clean and with a nice view. The kitchen was very beautiful too, and the apartment is located at the very centre of London, at few minutes to the underground station. At the end of it all, a very beautiful place to stay if you need the comfort of a central house.
Although the location was convenient and the swimming pool a welcome start of the day, I've not had a 5* experience due to a small bed (short), very thin blanket and cold shower. As mentioned by someone else: there is indeed no space to leave your clothes but it didn't bother me this time. The place is clean, and easy to find & access.
We were nicely welcomed, in this nice flat, which is located in a good place to visit London - immediate access to Underground and Barclays Cycle Hire.
He gave us good pieces of advice to start our visit.
The bedroom was clean and comfortable.
We enjoyed our stay over there, and would not hesitate to contact Paul & Milka for a next stay in London.
Portuguese with English translation commentary:
Foi a minha primeira experiência neste tipo de alojamento e não sabia muito bem o que esperar. O Paul recebeu-nos à hora marcada e rápidamente nos mostrou o quarto e ofereceu a chave de casa para entrarmos e sairmos à hora que quisessemos. O quarto é fiel à fotografia com uma vista espetacular para o centro de Londres ! A localização do prédio é excelente, com metro, autocarro, supermercado, pubs tudo à porta. O quarto é quentinho e tivemos serventia da casa de banho e cozinha (partilhado com o Paul e a família).
A Milka é muito simpatíca e a bebe um amor (não nos incomodou em nada o barulho). A única coisa negativa foi mesmo não haver espaço para arrumar a roupa dentro do guarda roupa. (Mas para uma estadia de 3 dias não foi um incómodo muito grande)
Recomendo e quando voltar a Londres vou lá ficar novamente.
It was my first experience in this type of accommodation and I was not sure what to expect. Paul met us at the appointed time and quickly showed us the room and offered us the key of the flat to enter and leave at any time we wanted to. The bedroom is faithful to the picture with a spectacular view of central London! The location of the building is excellent, with metro, bus, supermarket, pubs just a few steps away. The room is warm and we used the bathroom and kitchen (shared with Paul and family).
Milka is very friendly and the baby is so cute (did not bother us at all). The only negative thing was that there was no space for storing clothes in the wardrobe. (But for a 3 day stay was not a very big problem).
I really recommend it and when I return to London I will stay there again.

We are a married couple British and Mexican with a baby so therefore Mexico has to be one of our favourite locations and we love the food... it's all about the chilli!! and the people and scenery are also pretty amazing.
We live together in our 2 bedroom apartment in zone 1 (central) London with 1 bathroom and a open plan kitchen diner living room with amazing views over Londons skyline including the city of London including St Pauls cathedral, the Gherkin, the Shard and Canary Wharf.
Our apartment is within a gated complex which also has the advantage of a gym, swimming pool and sauna all of which you would have access to.
We love meeting new people and learning about other cultures, history etc and we can not live without internet... holidays being the exception when we love being in the middle of nowhere to escape the buzz of London life.
Having said that we love London and everything it has to offer from the museums (which are free) to the bars and clubs to the theatre and music gigs.
