About this listing
My location is PERFECT for exploring all of real London while being able to return home to a lovely flat just off Portobello Road. I am 3 minutes walk to the ever-vibrant Portobello market and 20 minutes walk to Kensington Gardens and Hyde Park. This is an area of London adored by so many.
My flat is a very relaxing place to be, the view from my living room looks on to apple trees and lovely vibrant flowers from the garden below. My friends who have stayed here have always talked of how well they have slept and how fresh they feel after a great night's sleep.
The room measures 108sq ft and has a double bed, chest of drawers and a wardrobe. Clean linen and towels are provided.
Be sure to let me know if I can help in anyway. I know the area well and will be able to suggest a variety of things to keep you entertained. I'm positive your stay will be a great experience.
Must be clean and tidy.
Aaron was perfectly described by his review that said, "meeting Aaron wasn't like meeting a stranger but rather like seeing an old friend." Aaron MADE our trip to London. His place was clean, he was more than understanding when we arrived late, and was incredibly welcoming and enjoyable to talk with. He gave us many suggestions on where to adventure and eat. His location is spectacular as he is right off the famous Portobello road and walking distance (or Tram) to anything you'd want to do or see. If we return to London it will be to visit with Aaron again! Thank you Aaron, it was our pleasure meeting you!!
Aaron was an excellent host, super attentive, kind and gave me a lot of great suggestions on where to go & where to eat, not the tipical places in London, but those known only to locals, which I really valued! His place is very much as described in the aribnb web page, photos very accurate, the room is large, clean and very comfortable. Everything was as expected! Location was also a plus, just 2 blocks or so from the tube and almost on Portobello road (just one block away), so in the very heart of Notting Hill, couldn´t have asked for anything else. He was also very accomodating of the check-out time since my plane was leaving late, I could leave my luggage at his place, which I really appreciated. I would definitely recommend staying at Aaron's, thanks!!!!!!!!!
First off, the location was perfect for hitting up London and exactly as described. The bed was was great for a good night sleep. The place is minutes away from Ladbroke station with easy access to buses and trains, for sightseeing. With several food options nearby on Portobello.
As for the host, Aaron was a great guy; very interesting, helpful with directions and recommendations. He made the key exchange painless and made me feel welcome and right at home immediately. The whole experience felt more like catching up with an old friend rather than meeting a stranger for the first time. I would recommend his place to anyone in the future and hope to get back myself soon.
Aaron was a great host, personable, and energetic. The location was near restaurants, pubs, the Tube and bus routes. If we go back to London we will definitely stay with Aaron again.
Aaron is a great and accommodating host. The room is a good size with a bed that is almost too comfortable. Location wise it is in a great spot for getting to all the London attractions while still getting to experience an iconic London neighborhood. Aaron was great to chat with at the end of a day of sight seeing and has loads of great stories. If you stay make sure to take his flawless recommendations for hidden restaurants and sights.
Aaron did a fantastic job making me feel welcome not only to his home but to London. His recommendations of places to go and places to eat could not have been better and made this an unforgettable trip.
This is the second time that I've stayed with Aaron, and it was another great experience! I had such a comfortable, welcoming, and easy experience the last time I stayed, that I brought my sister along this time...not only to see London, but because I knew she would love the airbnb experience at Aaron's flat. Aaron is such a great host...he is laid back, friendly, informative, and a genuinely interesting person to get to know. Aaron was more than helpful in giving suggestions for transportation when the Underground workers went on strike, telling us which bus lines to use, and giving advice on which stops to avoid. When the tube IS actually running, his flat is very close to two station lines, within a 5 minute walk. His flat is also located within 1 block of Portobello Road, which has the famous market and interesting shops and restaurants. Overall, staying with Aaron has become the best and easiest thing about my trips to London...he is a great guy with a great flat. I cannot think of a single negative thing about my experience, and have no suggestions for Aaron to make anything better!
