Abbiamo soggiornato nell'appartamento di Steve per una settimana durante le vacanze pasquali e siamo molto soddisfatti di questa permanenza. L'appartamento è proprio come si vede nelle foto, è ben tenuto, luminoso, attrezzato, estremamente pulito e confortevole, in una strada silenziosa, vicina a negozi, a fermate di bus e alla stazione dell'overground. A due passi ogni giorno si anima Readley Road Market, veramente attraente, ricco di colori e profumi, con prodotti esotici da esplorare. Abbiamo molto apprezzato la disponibilità di Steve e Judith e la loro riservatezza e ci siamo sentiti accolti e a nostro agio. Assolutamente consigliata la permanenza in questo appartamento e in questo quartiere. Se torneremo a Londra sarà nostro piacere alloggiare ancora da Steve.
The flat was exactly as advertised and a wonderful place to spend our time in London.
Steve and Judith were excellent hosts. They were very helpful when we had questions or small issues with the flat (a janky doorknob was fixed the same hour we brought it up), but were also wonderful about allowing us our privacy.
The wifi was fast and reliable, the kitchen and bathroom were both fully equipped and clean/in good repair, and the bed was comfortable. There was even a weekly cleaning service (we stayed for a month).
Dalston is a very hip neighborhood with a lot of great coffee shops for working (Tina We Salute You, L'Atelier, and The Laundry were three of our most frequent working spots), some great restaurants (Tonkotsu East, White Rabbit), and even a great cocktail bar (High Water — held up to my snobby cocktail standards).
It's walking distance (~30 minutes) from Shoreditch. There are two Overground stations and a host of bus routes less than five minutes away. It was *extremely* easy to get around from Steve's flat.
This is definitely a place I would rent again.
The listing was very accurate, and the flat was comfortable and had all of the necessities. It's in a charming part of Dalston, and we found it centrally located for our needs. We ate at Mangal, which serves delicious Turkish food. We were able to go for runs in the morning in a nearby park, and catch the overground or bus into the City. Although Steve was out of town, Herm was a very helpful hostess. She even went out of her way to look up information about transportation to the airport. We would definitely recommend staying in this flat!
We had a great time here. The flat was spotlessly clean and had everything we needed. The bed was very comfortable and the kitchen was nicely equipped. Steve was very helpful, and we thoroughly enjoyed the Turkish restaurant he recommended. We would happily stay here again. Thanks for a great airbnb experience!
A perfect host and a perfect flat. Steve was welcoming and helpful, while also ensuring we had complete privacy to come and go as we pleased. The flat far outshone the photos- it is bright, spacious and immaculately clean. It is better equipped than our own home. The street is quiet, despite being a few minutes walk from a busy high street.
We really enjoyed the attention to detail throughout, which even included some beautiful planting in the front garden. Steve was so kind in helping me navigate London''s transport system and furthermore compensated us generously (ridiculously generously) following a brief problem with the hot water one afternoon.
This is my first experience with Airbnb and Steve has set the bar very high! I cannot recommend it highly enough.
