Rachelle is friendly and very easy-going, she made me feel welcome. We had a slight communication issue when it came to confirming my check-in time but she did get back to me two hours prior to my arrival in London so everything worked out in the end.
It was a bit unfortunate that I was in London for work because Rachelle's and my schedules seemed a bit incompatible in that I'm a light sleeper and she appeared to be a night owl.
In terms of location - the flat is great.
Rachelle was very good host. When I just arrived, she offered me tea and we started chatting. It leaves room for your privacy but very nice.
The room was very clean and the bed is very comfortable and large. The bathroom was in good condition and has very hot water, perfect for the days that you arrive being so cold.
The apartment was in a very central area, by a walking distance from the King's Cross Station. It has very good arrangement of buses and Underground, but is also very easy to walk to anywhere.
I have to say that I wasn't very impressed with this place, particularly as the next Airbnb I stayed at close by was much better and the same price. This flat is missing it's letterbox (as in gaping hole in the front door), and there was some kind of plumbing problem that meant an awful noise all night and no hot water the next day. Host was uncontactable by phone when this happened. Kitchen was very dirty throughout the stay. I also felt there should have been instructions about getting into the building as it was quite complicated and the neighbour I picked the keys up from didn't say a single word to me via intercom or in person!
On the plus side, the room was nice enough, bed was comfy, and the location is great--really close to the tube and where I was working.
I probably wouldn't stay again, but if it was cheaper, I'd probably recommend it to budget travellers. Not to professionals like me and the other guest, who were massively inconvenienced by the plumbing problems.
Message from Lauren "Hi Rachelle, just to let you know I've made it in and noted the house rules. Looking forward to a great stay - your flat is lovely! " I would of got the perfect review from Lauren while I was away for the week and let Lauren stay in my place with another lady while I was not there ,unfortunately either of them did not contact me by email when the pump began to play up ( it needed turning off at the mains ) of course lauren notified me by email regarding the internet password beforehand & got a immediate reply from me but not my pump ?? was very baffled by the lack of communication , it was left on all night making noise which is rarely does and she made no effort to find the source or notify me , I was not pleased with this lack of communication & I told her so hence her giving me a bad review ( she got one too ! ) I did pay her £30 hostel fee when it only cost £18 -The kitchen was immaculate & was professionally cleaned beforehand especially when I have two guests staying while I am not there ! I don't know why my poor neighbour handing over keys to her is expected to be a polite butler doorman when he is disabled and has difficulty speaking has anything to do with it , at least she got the keys safely and got in ! Not sure why having no letterbox( the door is being refurbished & letterbox is ordered ) makes my lovely flat "run down for budget travellers "especially when I have had hundreds of happy professionals stay with me & have been more than happy and even come back, my place is for everyone working or exploring - safely saying " please Lauren communicate in the future so there is no disgruntled feelings ! and then you would of had a better stay in my lovely clean flat and anywhere else in the future
