Toby was a pleasure to deal with and everything ran smoothly over the 10 nights we spent at his apartment.
Every thing in the apartment was the same as described in the Air BNB site and the pictures were all accurate.
The location was excellent and access to the apartment was easy.
Above all it was great value for money in such an expensive area
I would stay there again.
Thank you Toby
I had some problems finding the apartment at first, but Toby was available to help via a call. He met me at the apartment and allowed me to check in early as my arrival time from the airport was early in the day. The location of the apartment is fantastic being just a short walk to train station, shops and restaurants. It is comfortable and has everything you need for a short stay. The wifi wasn't working when we arrived, but Toby fixed it straight away and we had no problems with it during our stay. We had a wonderful time in London and enjoyed our stay in Toby's apartment. This was my first Airbnb experience and I was nervous about how it would all work, but now I am looking forward to many more Airbnb stays.
we spent one week in toby’s house. everything was well organized. the house is small but appropriate for three people.
the kitchen was too small as you may see in web, but equipped with all the utencills and everything so that we cooked well.
only the bahtroom was old, but we had hot water whenever we wanted. and the most important thing, the location
of the house was wonderfull; 2 minutes to the supermarket, 5 minutes to the underground station and 8 minutes to hyde park.
we were all happy to stay at toby's house.
We were visiting friends, relations and galleries and know London quite well. Toby was very welcoming and provided a concise and very useful appraisal of the nearby restaurants. The flat was as described, warm, comfortable and homely with some interesting art work. Although there were only two of us, we used the sofa bed too as I developed a heavy cold and did not want to pass it on. It was surprisingly comfortable.
It is a great central location as a base for London's sights. We ranged from Harrow to Greenwich. Nice to have the park nearby too.
Asunto oli täydellinen! Asunto oli hyvällä paikalla ja valoisa, kuten kuvailussa kerrotaan. Toby huolehti kaikesta todella hyvin. Meillä ei ollut mitään ongelmia majoittumisen suhteen.
Nice warm apartment, match exactly as described. Location is just right, easy access to food and groceries, public transport etc. Host made the description clear - all do and don't well before the stay. This is really great for preparation.
About the Host, Toby
