Overall Guest Satisfaction

Check In
  • My daughter and I had a great experience staying with Sally and Mattias. The host provided easy instructions to get there and offered help that we needed to get around London. Our room was small but very comfortable. The flat is very comfortable and decorated with beautiful art. The hosts provided a yummy breakfast that was a perfect start to our day. The train station and bus stops are a very easy walk. We also enjoyed being near Battersea park. My daughter loved the innovative playground with the zip line!

  • Staying with Mathias and Sally was awesome. First of all, Sally stayed up to meet me when I got in, gave me the wifi code and key, and they even left breakfast out for me in the mornings. I came and went as fairly strange hours during the trip, but every time I ran into them they were both very friendly and welcoming. Plus, the bed was the most comfortable one I've slept in in a long time. Overall, I'd highly recommend both the hosts and the apartment!

  • This was my first AirBnB experience and it was one of the best decisions I've made. I'll never do a hotel again. It took a day or two of getting used to being in a stranger's home, but Sally & Mathias were really sweet, kind and helpful and it made me feel at ease once I met them. The location is great and their home is very cozy, lovely and clean. The bed was so comfortable, I had to force myself to get up and be a good tourist. The breakfast they leave out for you is delicious and plenty with various options. They were very accommodating and were flexible with my check-out time. They really make you feel at home. They work in the daytime so I didn't see them often but when I did, they were warm and interested in having a little chat. I would definitely check their AirBnB availability next time I'm in London. A+ experience. Thank you Sally & Mathias!

  • We had a great stay with Mathias & Sally. Beautiful building, in a nice neibourhood. 3rd floor walk up in a spacious flat. We enjoyed visiting before bed. Good directions. Good breakfast. We would stay again if in London.

  • Lovely people, lovely spot.

    Room is quite small but it has tons of storage space for bags etc so no problems. Sally and Mathias are great people and very helpful.

    Transport is very well accommodated, buses and trains both run from nearby and its only one stop to Victoria St. Too easy.

  • We enjoyed our stay with Sally and Mathias. The room was small but adequate for our needs. The bath is shared with the hosts and they were very conscious of our needs and kept the apartment very clean. The location is quiet. Breakfast offering was very adequate.

  • I really enjoyed my stay at Mathias & Sally's place.
    It's located near Park, so it's very calm also convenient to go to Central London.
    Mathias & Sally were going away, I didn't meet them.But they prepared my breakfast and Sally's niece Danielle helped me.
    Thanks a lot Mathias,Sally and Danielle!I hope visit there again.
