We had a wonderful time in London and Vicki was an excellent host! The apartment was lovely and exactly as described. The location was extremely convenient and quiet for a peaceful rest. Thank you for your hospitality, Vicki!
The flat looks exactly the photos, and was spotless! My parents stayed here while visiting myself in London and enjoyed their stay. Close to Marylebone High Street, Oxford street and both Hyde and Regent Parks.
Victoria was very welcoming, with a well-practiced 15 minute introduction to the apartment, surrounding neighbourhood and nearby public transport options. It was great to be given maps and details about good restaurants. It was also nice to have crumpets, jam and milk on our arrival.
The apartment was quiet and cosy, we enjoyed a bit of extra space after a week in hotel rooms. Everything was clean, the provided linen and towels were very nice, the shower was good, and the washing machine & dryer were very useful to have.
It was a great place to be based for a few nights in London.
Communication was very good with Vickie. Vickie even arranged a taxi to the airport for me. The apartment was in a great location, not far from 3 tube stations , a supermarket is nearby , and many restaurants are around . The furniture was not as new as it looks in the pictures , however the place is very clean and nice .
The host canceled this reservation 85 days before arrival. This is an automated posting.
We loved staying at Vickie's apartment. Communication was very good with Vickie. Vickie even arranged a taxi from the airport for us. The apartment was in a great location, not far from 3 tube stations. Vickie's hospitality was also outstanding especially with fresh milk, crumpets and fruit to greet us. Vickie also helped out with maps and information about London. It was handy to have access to both a washing machine and a dryer. I would recommend Vickie's apartment to all Airbnb members.
