We have had guests who expected a dining area, but at this price point in the location you are getting a lot of space for these fees, BUT please note this is NOT dining room/sitting room.
Interaction with Guests
we give you our contact details when you book, but please remember this is not a hotel, its a house, so unless there is an emergency you are expected to be self reliant. we do not book you out, you lock the door and leave the key behind, if you wish you see you out please let us know, there is a charge for this.once on booking we like you to email us through your regular email, i then e-introduce you to sarah who will be looking after you. PLEASE NOTE there is a £45 fee if you arrive after 9pm as sarah needs to take a taxi home, we do not add this fee on airbnb as it between you and sarah, but please be aware that this is the situation
Other Things to Note
PLEASE NOTE some of the FURNTURE IS ANTIQUE, there seems to be some confusion with this, this means the furniture is old, that what ANTIQUE is, if you require super smart, modern living, our style is NOT for you, so please enjoy a stylish environment, but do not book us if you expect antique to mean NEW! late book in is charged please see "interaction with guests" Sarah who meets your lives a way from the property so after 9pm you need to pay for her taxi at £45.
WE have removed the antique beds and sofa and arm chair, they were proving too challenging for some guests, so they have been replaced with new, high quality fittings
I am delighted to share my london home with people while i am working away, please respect it, as it is my house, but also please make your self and home and enjoy the place. We try and make you stay as much as a home away from home as possible, please try and be as punctual with your arrivals as possible we have had a few problems with very late arrivals which is unfair on Sarah who waits for you to arrive.
due to some very poor mannered people (one who left sarah waiting 8 hours for them) we now a lot 1 hour from the time you give us for you arrival, after this time we charge £20 an hour waiting time. Also early check in and late check out can be arranged by we now have a fee for this. we charge £45 if you arrive after 9pm in the evening, late book out is charged at £30 as need to get an extra cleaner in for turn around, we also do not allow people to sleep on the sofa, the flat is advertised for 4 people, 2 per bedroom. We can supply extra bedding and a put you up or cot for an additional £25
we email you our terms so this is all very clear.
We absolutely loved staying at Andrews place! It was easy to get to, clean and in an awesome area. It was really easy to communicate with both Sarah and Andrew as well. The place is clean, bright and really well equipped. This place is just a 5 minute walk to Victoria Station so it's the perfect location for exploring all that London has to offer.
Excellent flat in a great location! Sarah was very helpful, the flat was in greatcondition. Close to all the major sites in central and many great pubs and shops in area. Beds were very comfortable and clean. Would highly recommend, especially to families with kids.
The flat was lovely and Sarah was there greeting us with wine, which always makes me happy :) The communication before our trip was on point and informative. You can clearly tell that Andrew has had guests before. The flat was in my opinion very charming and even better than depicted online. The beds were extremely comfortable. The area is really nice too; calm but just a walk from Victoria station and not that far away from some of the notorious sights London has to offer. I can warmly recommend Andrew's place and the area.
The apartment was charming and comfortable. Sarah met us at the apartment at the arranged time and gave us a brief orientation around the place. The bedrooms were very small, but the beds were quite comfortable and it was nice that the secondary bedroom was configured with 2 twin beds for our children. The bathroom was very well appointed. We did not do any cooking, but did take advantage of the washing machine. The apartment is very nicely located in a walkable neighborhood and convenient to transportation.
Excellent accomadation in a perfect location in London . The arrangements went very smoothly and were flexible to our needs . We would not hesitate to recommend this to others
Sarah greeted us and she was AMAZING! Glass of wine in hand, huge smile and great attitude - wonderful when you've travelled for 14hrs! Comfortable, quaint and very accessible to some of the best sites and restaurants. Would have loved the courtyard area to be clean/usable; the main bedroom bed a little larger (we're average sized peeps and we found it very small); and a fan or two for fresh air. WiFi is also a little spotty. Otherwise perfect for 2-3 days stay.
thank you Debra, fans have now been bought! and we are adding a "what and were" to our check in sheet! thank you for your feed back its help us improve our service. We have had BT test the wifi but couldn't find any thing wrong in the diagnostic???? but we will keep an eye on it.
we have also booked in to have the patio painted!
L'accoglienza è stata ottima e, avendo noi il volo di rientro in serata, l'host è stato molto gentile nel farci lasciare i bagagli in un angolo dell'appartamento.
La casa è bella e molto confortevole; pulita, ben arredata (letti comodissimi !!) e con una cucina ben attrezzata anche con belle stoviglie.
La posizione è ottima: in pieno centro (si arriva a piedi a Buckingham Palace) e a 5 minuti a piedi dalla Victoria Station.
Utilissima la presenza nella casa dell'wi-fi.
Unica pecca: gli spazi esterni (anche le scale di accesso) non erano molto puliti.
In ogni caso abbiamo soggiornato a Londra ottimamente.
