Immaculately clean, comfortable and well equipped flat. So conveniently placed for transport with easy access to Edgeware Rd and yet very very quiet. Victoria is a very attentive and knowledgeable host. Thoroughly recommend.
Very nice flat and very well located. Victoria is a really nice host and there for you if you have any questions. Thank you for the amenities. The flat is very clean and tidy. It was a really nice trip to London.
My friend and I had a really good experience of staying in the cozy place. From the first sight when we walked in, we were attracted by the flat combined with old and modern style. It's located in a very convenient place nearby 3 tube stantions and bus system. Moreover, the owner Vickie is so considerate that she provided a lot of useful information for tourists. I will definitely recommend others to stay in this place if they plan to have a vacation in London.
Victoria was very kind, very helpful and we felt most welcome.
The discreption of the appartment was accurate. The bed was very comfortable and toilet was beautiful and clean. In addition the apartment incloded oven, microwave and washing machine.
The location is great! very quite neighborhood.
Victoria was a fantastic host. I was not familiar with the area whatsoever and she was kind enough to come meet me at the tube station. She also provided me with directions via tube prior to arrival. She was extremely knowledgeable about the area and explained to me the closest tube/bus routes to take. She also informed me of local areas to check-out, restaurants and more. The apartment was very clean, well maintained and just as shown in photos. Victoria provided breakfast items, bathroom toiletries and an iron (when requested). The only negative comment I would leave is a bit of foot traffic noise from upstairs but overall a very comforting, pleasant experience.
We really enjoyed our stay at the apartment. It was very nice and cosy with a very comfortable bed. Victoria is very friendly and extremely helpful, giving us a lot of tips on how to get around the neighborhood.

I have known and loved the area intimately over the past 35 years
I enjoy travelling and having guests who can also enjoy the fresh air of the Royal Parks, street markets, museums, art galleries, music and all that London has to offer.
