Rules to follow
Paul's space is easily the best Airbnb I have ever been to! Paul is extremely friendly and welcoming. Two words that best describe this flat are spacious and beautiful! The view of Big Ben is definitely a deal-sealer! The pub in front of the apartment is fantastic, You're a quick 5 minute walk to the nearest tube station and a 7 minute walk to the Thames River. I would highly recommend Paul and his flat to anyone traveling to London!
Fui con una amiga a conocer Londres. Paul estuvo pendiente de nosotras en todo momento, desde que reservamos la casa unos dos meses antes de ir, hasta el mismo día que quedamos para recoger las llaves. Muy puntual y atento, nos recogió en un bar al lado de la casa y nos explicó todo. La casa estaba fenomenal, cuidada y limpia y tiene unas vistas excelentes del Big Ben. Volvería a casa de Paul sin dudarlo
Paul met me at the pub nearby. Friendly. Helpful. Flats as described. Was really happy with it. Knew the area a bit but loved having the Tescos very near. And the tube and buses. Would definitely recommend.
My husband and I stayed in Paul's flat for six nights in August. It was our second stay. Obviously we liked it the first time. Since last year Paul has made improvements, in the kitchen and new furniture and made it even more comfortable
The flat is quiet and close to Tube and Supermarkets. Its only 10 minutes by bus to Trafalgar Square.
Paul is a sensitive and accommodating host. We heartily recommend staying at Paul's flat.
