Peter was very accommodating and I have nothing but good things to say about our stay. There was a small hiccup about which room we booked but Peter took care of that right away. Not only that, he was always a great conversationalist and had a list of things to do and see in London which made our trip a lot of fun. The rooms were clean and the location is very close to all the sites you'd want to see in London - I will definitely stay here again next time I visit this fine city!
OVERALL: Clean, quiet, simple and elegant place. Amazing location. Good to put clean and freshen up and put your head down for the night.
Amazing location. Neighbourhood is very central and interesting with easy and quick access by walk or underground to every major central London site.
Very clean, cozy, and quiet bedroom space. Very nice home. Comfy bed. Nice and clean washrooms though one of them lacks a lock on the door but this was not problematic though it did concern the two other members of my party. Very nice towels. Good internet.
We did not use the microwave or fridge space indicated in the listing and so cannot speak to these features. (Was never shown where this space was).
Only met Peter and Mitko briefly on the first day but we never saw them again during our short stay. They were polite.
Very good email communication with Peter at the time of booking. Very accommodating, friendly, and helpful in this regard.
Very clear and simple rules.
Two in my party arrived early. I did not expect this and when I knew of this, attempted to contact Peter as early as I could prior to their arrival (unfortunately this was only 2 hours before actual check-in time) to see if this was an issue. I never received a reply. However, my two friends said they were greeted politely by Mitko as if they were expected early and were allowed to deposit their bags at the door though not allowed to enter until the check-in time. This was a good compromise and nice and accommodating of Peter and Mitko considering the short notice. Thank you.
Did not feel welcome at all. Reception was polite but cold, curt, and distant with minimal instructions. Interaction with hosts minimal and unpleasant. Upon arrival, host felt it necessary to make unpleasant comments indicating displeasure regarding above mentioned circumstance.
VERDICT: Would consider staying again for a short period as before due to amazing location and simple, cozy, elegance and comfort of bed.
As usual, I immensely enjoyed my stay at Peter's. The house was again extremely clean, the room very comfy and my hosts very nice and welcoming. Also, they are very well situated and very well connected. They are at a mere 2-minute walk from the nearest tube and train station. Iconic places like Westminster and London Eye are easy to reach through a nice walk along the Thames. I highly recommend this place, that's where I try to stay whenever I'm in London.
Nice quiet room close to transport. Peter was a friendly and generous host.
