Overall Guest Satisfaction

  • We had a great stay at Alessandro´s place for 6 nights. The flat is newly renovated, tidy, nice and clean and with all the facilities we needed. The location is great, with lots of cafes and restaurants within walking distance. It is just a few minutes walk to the overground station and buses in all directions. All contact with Alessandro was perfect.
    We highly recommend this flat to others, and we would love to come back.

  • Great flat, good location. Had a very enjoyable stay, Alessandro was very helpful and easy with everything. Would definitely recommend.

  • Getting from London St Pancras station to Alessandro's apartment couldn't have been easier and when I arrived Alessandro was ready to check me in. He was very pleasant, to the point, and his joking nature made for a great welcome. The first thing I noticed was that the apartment was very bright and spacious, very true to the description and photos online. As part of a group of 4 that shared this apartment for 4 days, I can say that we all had enough personal space and were comfortable both in the bed and on the sofa-bed. We had everything we needed: a beautiful bathroom and shower, clean sheets and many blankets, a fully equipped kitchen, a wide sofa-bed, and hangers for the closet.

    The neighborhood of Haggerston has a great multicultural mix and is lively in an day-to-day hustle and bustle kind of way. This area has something for everyone: little coffee shops for reading over a cup of tea, pubs, grocery stores, organic product shops, and British and international restaurants. Shoreditch, a bar/club/restaurant district is only a couple of stops away on the Overground and is well worth the visit on a Friday night (Brick Lane in particular).

    I would recommend both the neighborhood and this apartment to those seeking to be a little outside of London central and (email hidden)ly and artsy part of Hackney that is in full bloom.

  • We had an excellent stay at Alessandro's place. The flat was tidy and very nice, and perfectly located if you want to explore East London (and even if you do not, as it is just a few hundred metres away from the overground station). The area is lively and has all the facilities you may need, yet the flat is quiet. Alessandro was very kind and met us on time at both check-in and check-out.

  • We had a great stay at Alessandro's flat. It was exactly as described and spotless. The bed and sofa bed were very comfortable, all appliances were new and supplies were there for the dishwasher and washing machine. Alex even had a few items of a liquid variety in the fridge for us on our arrival :) The area was nice, the canal walk is lovely down to Broadway market and London Fields, the flat is close to downtown (about 20 min by bus) and some cool local restaurants and pubs are in the area and in nearby Shoreditch. Even the quicki mart across the street was nicely stocked with daily essentials. Everything about our stay was first class and we would highly recommend Alessandro and his flat to others.

  • Bel appartement confortable et propre où tout est fourni, bien situé avec accès proche des transports publics ( métro, bus) à peine 30 mn du centre de Londres ainsi qu'un supermarché très proche.
    Alessandro est sympa, prêt à nous rendre service. Vu le super temps lors de notre séjour, nous en avons profité pleinement.
    Seul petit souci, je le recommande plutôt à 2 personnes qu'à 4 dont un couchage se situe au dessus du pub dont une gêne par la musique mais restaurant sympa.
    Vu le quartier et l'emplacement de l'appartement, on espère revenir

  • Everything was great - the flat was nice and clean, everything important was provided. Alessandro was on time for both check-in and check-out. If you want to hang around this part of East London, the location is ideal. Nothing to worry about the pub downstairs - noise is not a problem.

  • Our stay at Alessandro ¨s house was a great one! The apartment has all you could need for feeling at home. It is near the canal and you can go walking to Islington.
    My son is studyng in London and i have no doubt : I will come back to Alessandro s house!

  • This apartment is in an great location in Haggerston and within easy walking distance of Shoreditch and Old Street Underground Station. You can also access the overground rail line at Haggerston a 2 minute walk around the corner from the apartment.
    Walking into this apartment is a sheer delight - it's recently been fully refurbished and the decor and interior is outstanding. A nice modern kitchen and lounge area is well supported by a dining table and longe suite to either read on or watch TV from.
    Bathroom is of a high standard - with a shower over the bath (with a shower screen fixed to the wall).
    Bedroom has a built in wradrobe with good hanging and shelf space to unpack your suitcase and get your clothes accessible.
    If you're visiting from outside the Uk/Europe just remember that the English label their beds differently to the Southern Hemisphere. The bed provided is an Australian equivalent of a Queen size (in the UK its called a King) so don't be surprised. Having alerted you to that fact, this bed is very comfortable and plenty warm (even when England lowers the temperatures).
    We were met on arrival by Alex who gave us a great run-down on things, showed us how to access the WiFi and then left us to settle in.
    The apartment is well provided for and includes a washing machine (clothes variety) but no drier - that's not a major, because the apartment heating soon dries the clothes.
    There is a TESCO Express (mini supermarket) just around the corner, so if you need a few supplies it's just a short stroll away.
    The apartment is situated above the Dukes Inn and it certainly didn't bother us at all, as the windows are double glazed (sound and warmth values) and the Inn's Management seem to have the patrons exercising great entry and exit behaviour. If you want to eat downstairs, get in early, it's a popular place.
    To give you some idea we could walk to Old Street Station in about 15 mins and if you're goijng to use the 'Tube' buy yourself an Oyster Card at the Station, it's great value ans way cheaper than buying individual fares. You can also use it on the buses (buy one for Zones 1 and 2 about STG 32 and you get a card refund when you're ready to leave the Country - redeemable from the tube office).
    Alex presents a high quality apartment and is an attentive host if and when needed. We were fortunate in having family living nearby.
    If we come back to the Uk again, without doubt we'd book this apartment again.
    Thank you Alex - an absolute pleasure.

  • A friend and I had a great weekend in Alessandro's clean and spacious flat. It is ideally located for exploring East London. Alessandro met us when we arrived, rather late in the evening. Everything in the flat was in perfect condition and looked nice. I highly recommend it!
