Rules to follow
We really liked staying at this flat, it had everything we needed & the area was great. We did feel like we were living there even if it was only for the few days. We also enjoyed having a meal at the Black Prince Pub twice & having the Tesco really close was good too. So our first experience with Airbnb has been great. Would definitely use it again.
We had a great time staying at Paul's appartment!
The neighborhood is safe and quiet, and it is only a few minutes walk to the next tube stations. The appartment is very well equipped and has a great view over London.
We'd defenitely stay there again in the future.
Paul's flat is very well located. There are a few bus stops around the corner with easy access to the main attractions and Kennington tube station isn't far either. There's a Tesco just by the bus stop to get supplies if necessary. The area feels very safe and the flat, although just round the corner from a busy street, was very quiet. The view of the Houses of Parliament from the living room window was lovely. The flat itself was a clean, comfortable and has everything you could wish for including a fully equipped kitchen. We loved to have a home away from home and to be able to cook dinner and stay at home watching a dvd after a day of exploring London.
Lovely time. Very clean flat, convenient location, friendly and helpful host. Thanks Paul!
We had de very pleasant stay at Paul's flat. It is very quiet and confortable and near city center (between 2 stations). A friend of him welcomed us and gave all the explanations we needed.
The place to be....
Bye and thanks again
Paul was very friendly and easy to communicate with. The flat is very well located, clean and comfortable. Getting around was easy, we would highly recommend the apartment.
Paul's apartment is really nice and lovely. Besides being a clean apartment, his home is really spacious and has everything that you need. To top it off, Paul is very accomodating as a host. He came with his friend to pick us up and they offered to carry our luggages. It was very nice to be welcomed by them. Also, they were keen to answer any questions that we had and were very humourous indeed. It's awesome that Paul is a cool guy and I strongly recommend others to book this apartment. Oh, and not forgetting, the area that he is located at is safe and easy to get around to anywhere. You really can see the big ben! Cheers to Paul and his wonderful apartment!
