    Paul est une personne très agréable.
    L'appartement est dans un quartier sympa.
    Bus, métro et supermarché sont situés pas loin de l'appartement.
    On voit effectivement Big Ben depuis l'appartement qui est situé au 7ème étage (avec ascenseur).
    Bâtiment très propre.

    -
    L'appartement n'était pas très propre (miettes (et chips o_O) par terre et poussière dans tous les coins).
    Les placards et le frigo sont pleins, mais pas d'une manière agréable comme si c'était laissé pour nous, mais plutôt comme si l'on occupait l'appartement de quelqu'un d'autre.
    Nous avons eu des problèmes avec les lattes du lit (réglés le lendemain mais de nouveau cassé le surlendemain).

    CCL
    Parfait pour les personnes qui aiment avoir l'impression d'être hébergé chez un ami mais un peu dérangeant pour des personnes maniaques comme moi.

  • What a fantastic host! Thank you for letting us stay in your beautiful home :)

  • It was a pleasure to stay at this flat. The Check-in was very simple and Paul was very Kind. He even took my suitcase.

    The flat is nice, a supermarket is around the corner. We took the bus almost every time on our way into the city. It was simply great!

  • Paul's flat was perfect for what we needed! We were out and about the first 2 days in the UK and mostly only had time to sleep. But the neighborhood's good and the view is great. And for the price the location is perfect! Paul is also a perfect gentleman and took my bag for me when meeting. Highly recommended.

  • Pour notre première expérience AirBnB nous avons été agréablement surpris.
    Nous avons passé un excellent séjour chez Paul.
    L'appartement était propre spacieux et agréable. Il est très bien situé, le centre ville est facilement accessible en bus et métro.
    Paul a été très serviable, il est venu nous chercher à la station de métro de Kennington et nous a conduit jusqu'à l'appartement.
    Juste 2 points qui pourraient être améliorés :
    Le lit était moyennement confortable et une table dans la salon aurait été pratique.

    Mais sinon tout était très bien. Nous y reviendrions

  • I had a really comfortable & relaxing stay in Paul's flat. The location was great for me, really easy to get anywhere central, and the flat was tidy, clean and had everything I needed. It felt really safe and was so quiet - but so nice to hear Big Ben chiming faintly :) Paul was very helpful and incredibly quick in replying to me. I would definitely stay again and recommend to others!

  • Nous avons passé 3 jours à Londres et avons eu le plaisir de séjourner chez Paul!

    L'appartement est idéalement situé à proximité du métro (2-3 stations du centre ville) dans un quartier plutôt calme avec une jolie vue sur Big Ben (l'appartement est au 7 ème étage AVEC ascenseur).

    Il est très lumineux et fonctionnel mais surtout beaucoup plus spacieux que ce que laissent paraître les photos.

    Paul est un hôte disponible et sérieux. Nous le recommandons!

  • El departamento es mejor de lo que se muestra en las fotografías, más amplio y luminoso. Muy cómodo, como si estuviera en mi propia casa. Ubicación aceptable. Una experiencia muy agradable.
