Simply wow, couldn't ask for more. The apartment is so beautiful and comfortable, there's even more than everything you might need, and it's extremely clean and nicely decorated. The bed is great and the apartment very quiet, excellent for a good rest :) You'll feel at home.
Vickie is really nice and attentive, she always answers msgs very quick and is there for helping or advising whenever you need, she's an amazing host.
The neighbourhood gorgeous and residential, typical from london. HIGHLY RECOMMEND.
Ich bin gestern Abend nach Deutschland zurückgekehrt nach drei fantastischen Tagen in London.
Unser Apartment war super gemütlich, sauber und gepflegt! Die Lage des Apartments ist sehr zentral und trotzdem ruhig. Für zwei Personen ist mehr als genug Platz.
Besonders betonen möchte ich die Gastfreundschaft und Hilfsbereitschaft von Victoria! Sie gab uns viele gute Tipps um unsere Tour durch London angenehmer und interessanter zu gestalten.
Ich freue mich sehr auf ein nächstes Mal!! :)
Nice little flat in lovely central area of London. Close to parks, museums and lots of great restaurant with the option of walking to a lot of places. Would happily stay again!
Our stay exceeded expectations. We can confirm all the positive reviews which have been written for Victoria. In addition: location is great for those who like to go for a run in Hyde Park which is only a few blocks away. Thank you for being a great host.
Victoria was most welcoming to us, as we arrived way too early for check-in, by allowing us to store our luggage in the house, and giving us a personal tour of the surrounding community. Victoria was very accommodating to our erratic arrival and departure schedule, as we had to leave at 3:30 am in order to travel to Gatwick for our flight to Bordeaux, where we were joining our tour group.
The apartment location was perfect. We could walk to Edgeware Road for interesting restaurants and to Oxford Street for shopping. The bus stops were not more than a block away and it was just a very quick walk to the Tube. We really appreciated being within walking distance to transportation as it rained most of the days we were in London.
The apartment was very comfortable. We loved having the convenience of a washer and dryer on site, as we were spending one week in England and then traveling in France for another week. The bed was comfortable and the flat was reasonably quiet. Being located by the front door, we did hear residents coming in late and people leaving the pub down the block, but those were very minor disturbances and we would definitely book this apartment again.
Nous avons passé un très bon temps chez Victoria! L'appartement est joliment décoré, très confortable (j'ai très bien dormi) et propre. L'accueil de Victoria était chaleureux. Elle nous a bien conseillé sur les transports en commun et les points de service des environs. L'appartement est bien situé, le quartier est sympa et c'était facile de se déplacer dans Londres. Nous avons bien aimé pouvoir cuisiner le soir après deux longues journées en ballade (la cuisine est bien équipée, mais l'espace pour manger est assez restreint). L'appartement est calme et propice au repos. La vue sur le jardin est splendide! Mon amoureux et moi sommes seulement restés deux nuitées, mais nous aurions aimé passer plus de temps, souhaitons-le pour la prochaine fois! Clairement, nous recommandons un séjour chez Victoria!
