-Flat conveniently located near 2 tube stops and a bus stop right in front of the door.
- Bathroom and living area clean and up to date.
-Kitchen ware dirty.
-Flat was practically in the middle of construction zone. The flat directly above is undergoing massive renovations. The noise level on weekdays made the flat unbearable to stay in.
- Patio absolutely not as advertised. Filthy, with scaffolding put up in it. At several times debris, rubble, screws and filth would fall down from above us, rendering the patio unusable and unsafe.
- Privacy not respected by construction workers, who entered the patio on several occasions, even after Alix promised us he had made sure we could use it in peace.
We do not feel we were treated well by Alix. We made our concerns about our safety known the first day of our stay, and Alix promised to make arrangements for us to be safe and have privacy. When the problems continued throughout our stay, we pointed this out to Alix, who told us it was out of his hands.
Alix ended up offering us compensation, and we agreed he would leave the agreed upon amount in the flat, as we were out that day, and we would sign a receipt for them. Alix became aggravated and rescinded the offer when we did not wish to sign a receipt for the money prior to receiving them.
All in all, we would not recommend anyone renting this flat or through Alix, as we were treated terribly by him and accused of lying to get a refund, even though we had pictures of everything and we simply asked that the patio was safe for us to use, as well as for our privacy to be respected. Also, we never asked for a refund or compensation, Alix offered it to us, and we are very disappointed that we have had to involve airbnb to get the compensation he offered us himself.
Very pleasant stay in a very convenient and central area, yet very quiet. Owner was particularly nice and reactive, we needed an additional sets of keys and he took time out of his work to come give it to us, we were very appreciative of his efforts. Highly recommended and excellent value for any Air BnB user that would like to live a true London experience!
Although we didn't get to meet Alix in person, he was very friendly and easy to reach. We arrived late and he had arranged for the keys to be picked up at the cleaners next door as they were open until 10pm. The flat was well located and easy to get to. It was quite small so good for a couple but probably not for anyone else as you really have to like the person you are with :) There is so much to do in London though that we spent very little time in the flat and it was great for what we needed.

Our stay at Alix's place was excellent. As no one was in the studio the day before Alix was happy for us to check in early and key collection was easy. The flat has all you need- the sofa bed was fine, the shower terrific and all amenities provided. Alix was communicative and flexible. The bus right outside or a short walk to the tube made transport easy too. (Get an Oystercard when you. Arrive at the tube- so convenient) One block up is the very brilliant Truscott Arms pub- wonderful food. Thanks Alix!
Overall, our experience here was enjoyable.
First, the positives: The flat was clean, and it was a nice touch to have coffee and tea already there when we arrived. The kitchen is well equipped, and the shower is quite large. It is an easy walk to the tube, and several buses stop directly outside, so it was easy to get anywhere in London. Having dependable internet and cable was great, as we have had bad experiences on this front with other apartments in Europe.
The downsides: The space was usable, but not "spacious," even for a studio. The biggest negative about this is that there isn't a bed, only the pull-out sofa, which is large enough for two people, but not all that comfortable for a longer stay. The main thing that disrupted our stay, however, was the construction going on upstairs. Most mornings, it started by 8am. We contacted Alix, and he spoke with the workers (which we really appreciated!), but the noise never really stopped. While this is a temporary issue, and not the host's fault, it would have been great to have - at least - been warned in advance.
