My gf & I stayed at Marco’s place for a couple of nights and it was great, just as described. Accurate photos. Check in was easy and then Marco very kindly let us have a flexible check out time. The flat is clean and spacious, right in the heart of Dalston but in a gated communit…
great location and neighborhood, but this apartment was just not for us. we thought this would be a larger, loft-style space. the bedroom was filled with stuff and felt like a storage room, so we moved the mattress to the main living space. the linens in general felt more perfume…
Response from Marco:
Your standards are obviously higher than my humble apartment. It is certainly not fit for a fussy princess. I am not sure exactly why you expected a larger apartment, if you saw the photos and there is even a floor plan on the profile. The bedroom is not filled with stuff - there are a few boxes in one corner, and that is it. If you look over other reviews I have, you will not see other comments about the bedroom feeling like a storage space, and certainly nobody else has ever needed to move to the living room to sleep! Very strange indeed. The linen was literally fresh out of the washing machine, fragrant with softener. Do not question its cleanliness please! It may be time to buy a new set of towels, yes, but they were not dirty either. If you spin the shower knob on the right, it does heat up. It is not lukewarm. There is a drip on the new shower from the installation, yes. There was no time to fix that, but it is just a drip, and not a leak. It does not wet anything outside of the bathtub, it just drips. No flooding involved. Most people could handle that. I agree that I needed more time to prepare the apartment that night, but you needed dinner anyway (Thanks for the restaurant recommendation? You're welcome). And by the time you returned from dinner, the flat was ready. So apart from finding something else to complain about, that did not effectively alter your plans nor your arrival in any real sense. Instead you did enjoy a tasty Turkish meal, I would have hoped. And not sure exactly which stage of 'check-in communication' you found difficult. Your partner did fuss over the heating being switched off (days before June!), but - as she wishes - I switch the central heating on. Would you mind switching it off later though? That would have been courteous. This surprised me, more so if you did actually leave the apartment early. I offered you advice for sightseeing in London, which you did not take up. You're welcome. I offered you a Tate pass to two of London's most visited galleries. You're welcome for that too. I asked you to let me know if you needed anything - and I don't recall you contacting me to discuss any of the above. I thought you were ok with things. Good people actually talk to each other. Good people certainly do not lie. Insecure people may need to lie. You told me that you had to return to New York early, which was not true. It is disappointing that you cannot deal with your issues and instead choose to run away from them. I was still in London, at first, and would have gladly returned to the flat to help deal with any issues that you may have had. I could have brought you new towels, for example (which was the one legitimate complaint you raise). Perhaps I need to add a clause to the house rules explaining that high-maintenance royalty are NOT welcome. I have hosted satisfied New-Yorkers in the past, so it really cannot be that. I must just have been particularly unlucky with you guys. Marco (with a c, actually) (Website hidden by Airbnb) (
Teacher, traveller and photographer! I know London very well, having grown up here, and can show you around. I have also lived in Bogotá and Dubai. I really enjoy good cinema, which is one of the best things about Dalston: the Rio cinema... I am also a big fan of astronomy…
