Chris, war sehr zuvorkommend und im Email-Verkehr gab er umgehend Tipps zu seiner Wohnung im 18 (!) Stock und zu London.
Die Wohnung ist wunderbar. Im Hochsommer könnte es ein wenig heiss werden, da keine Kühlung vorhanden ist. Man kann aber die Fenster ein öffnen, so dass die Wohnung nachts schnell abkühlt.
Als wir angekommen waren, lag ein Korb mit leckeren Lebensmitteln und einer Flasche Wein bereit.
Der Aufenthalt in diesem Loft ist sehr zu empfehlen.
The host was very friendly. He sent a welcome letter and very precise instructions. The neighbourhood is clean and safe, close to the Tube station with good connection to the city centre.
The apartment is in a contemporary residential tower, very nice furnished, clean and quiet. Not very big but roomy and convenient also for 4 guests. We were very satisfied.
Chris is an amazing Host. He is very kind and ready to help us with all the information he could give. The apartment is very beautiful and the position has let us to move easily in London (it is very Close to the underground station).
My husband and daughter stayed here in May 2015. They loved the central location with the Tube station close by and other attractions within walking distance of the apartment. The views were fantastic and the beds were very comfortable! They also appreciated the orange juice and muffins that Chris had left for them when they arrived. Chris was very responsive throughout the booking process and their stay. I would highly recommend looking at this option if you are planning a trip to London. Thank you Chris!
When I entered at the apartment, I wished it was mine! the apartment is like described in the pictures, the views are amazing, the bed is very comfortable, the kitchen is fully equipped, and from the first moment we felt like home. Chris, thanks for all details about the apartment you gave us in advance, for the breakfast and the fresh flowers. This made our stay even better! very nice and recommendable place.
We were very excited to be staying at The Strata and it definitely lived up to expectations - the building itself is iconic. Firstly, the location (Elephant & Castle) if perfect for sight seeing in the city - you are a 2 min walk to the nearest tube station with an easy ride to all central locations in around 15 min. As a virgin tube-rider, I found the location of the flat very accessible (literally outside the tube stop) and riding the tube actually quite easy (with help from Chris and his directions). It really is very convenient if you are coming to the city as a tourist.
The flat itself is superb! When we arrived we found a lovely note from Chris (who had been EXTREMELY helpful prior to our arrival), fresh snacks and essentials to make us feel at home and a tastefully decorated abode. The bed is very comfortable, there is a lovely spacious, modern bathroom and not to mention a fantastic view!
Everything about our stay was great and the flat was made even better by it's host. Even though we didn't meet Chris, we were afforded the luxury of a glimpse into London life from his perspective. I would 100% recommend you book this flat. We will definitely be recommending and booking again in the future!
Amazing apartment in a great location. We stayed during London Marathon weekend as I was taking part in this years race. Apartment is fantastic with great views of the city. Local tube station is a two minute walk away. All of the amenities we might have needed were a stones throw away, with plenty of shops & restaurants on our doorstep. Chris was a great host. He left the apartment stocked with a few essentials we might need & even dropped me a text to wish me luck on the morning of the race. Great listing. Can't recommend it enough. Will certainly be looking to stay here again on our next visit.
About the Host, Chris
Hi, I'm Chris, I am a 40 year old Creative Director for a small company creating digital service solutions to some of the worlds biggest companies (think websites and much more!)
I originate from East London and love London! It is a great city and always so much to do and explore. I have lived in south East London next to the river Thames for the last 15 years and took the opportunity to move into the Strata Tower when it was opened to the public on completion 3 years ago. It is a great building, secure and the area is currently going through a million pound regeneration, so am excited to see the local area changing and being cleaned up. Will be very impressive when it completes in 2021!
I do not often use my apartment at weekends and so thought Airbnb would be a great opportunity to let others stay in London's newest landmark!
With the River and all it has to offer by way of attractions, pubs, bars and restaurants it is an amazing place to live and stay.
I am very clean and tidy by nature, and hope that if you choose to stay in Strata you will find it a very pleasent experience and environment.
Please get in touch if you have any questions!
