The nice location is almost the only positive thing about the accommodation. It was really dirty and grubby. I think our room wasn't cleaned at all and just the bedlinen were changed. We didn't get to meet Giovanni himself but just one of his employee.
The stairs are really narrow, steep and very dangerous if one gets downstairs.
When his employee tried to open the door of our room the doorhandle dropped out and he had to fix it with a wrench in front of me! So locking the door of the room wasn't really easy and didn't really ensure great safety!
One day before we had to leave Giovanni contact us and said that one of his employees was in our room ( which was locked) and that we should call him if we needed one additional night, although we had booked regular till the next day.
Beside this mistake the room is really small, the bed is unsteady and loose which causes horrible noise when one mooves and one hits the lamp everytime you climb up. The couch has stains everywhere.
The real problem was that there is no heating in the room and so we were freezing all night with just ONE blanket!!! Afterwards we get a small electrical heating but it was still cold!
Opening the front door and locking it was a real torture everytie we had to do it. It took us everytime around half an hour because the handle gots stucked and the key wouldn't turn.
The badroom is not that bad but it wasn't clean too and there was only really hot water in the shower or really cold one if you wanted to get a shower. Beside this the shower head was broken and almost all the water run out before reaching the top!
All in all I can't recommend this place althoug the price was good. It was just too dirty and all the problems with locking and unlocking the doors and not getting a shower without burning or freezing and afterwards gettintg in a very small and dirty room with no heating and then in a very unsteady bed squeaking and shaking all the time were just too serious so thet it could affect even your vacation.
I agree with the previous poster on many points, the location and the low price were almost the only upside of staying here. We didn't get to meet Giovanni, only one of his employees, which was alright I guess.
The room is tiny. With two big bags, it's almost impossible to move around. The bed was uncomfortable and creaky, the door to the room was in bad condition and it was difficult to open and close.
The bathroom was alright, but for some reason the upstairs bathroom was not working and everyone was using the downstairs bathroom, so it was really difficult to find a moment when it wasn't occupied.
Now, what really got me angry, was the front door. When we arrived (a sunday), we were told it had broken down on friday and no one had been available to fix it... okay, understandable. On monday afternoon, it still had not been fixed, and it was next to impossible to open or close it. I got stuck outside of the appartment and had to wait 4 hours until some other tenant opened it for me. People started leaving the door open because it was impossible to work it.
I sent Giovanni an email asking him to fix the door, I never received a response.
I'd not recommed this room.
Giovanni was a very nice host! He was always available and ready to help ! We needed two more nights in tabards apartment and he arranged that for us in a blink of an eye! The apartment is in a great location, near the underground even though we walked from there to the centre of london! If we come back to london we know where are we staying!
Giovanna was very helpful, especially since our flight landed a bit late on a Saturday night. The room could've been cleaned a bit more, but overall the flat was a nice place to stay.
very well located, nice place! i recommend it.
We had a great stay at Giovanni's apartment. It was clean and we had everything we need, for example: hair dryer, iron, washer. Furthermore the apartment war very central.
Unfortunately the bed was pretty hard.
+ We walked everywhere (but we did like 16 km one day)
+ Very clean (bathroom, room and kitchen)
+ Nice welcome
- We didn't met Giovanni
- The room is too small
- It's TOO DIFICULT to open the door. They should change it.
Good location , small room but enough to sleep , good deal for short term visiting london, nice kitchen and clean bathroom .
The reservation was canceled 40 days before arrival. This is an automated posting.
+ Location perfekt and close to the city center
+ the room was really clean
+ giovanni always answered fast
- the room was smal
