    Response from Paul:

    Hi Valerie. Thank you for the feedback. I really appreciate your time to write and let us know where we could do better. I am a little sad that you didn't contact me whilst in the flat as the baking tray, grill pan and phone are all in the flat. The tray and pan are on top of the kitchen cabinets due to space restrictions. And the telephone is tucked away in the chest draw next to sofa due to one of our first tenants raking up huge international bill which we had to pick up. I hope you had a good time and if you decide to stay with us again - we are only a phone call away! It was pleasure to have you. All the best. Irena

  • Very nice host, the apartment is more beautiful than the pictures, with views of the river Thames and the location was just perfect for us.
    Highly recommendable!

  • My partner and I were in London to see a show at the 02 with another couple. All the decent hotels in the area were charging around £140 per room on the Saturday night. We paid half that to share Paul's apartment and we couldn't have been happier.

    The apartment was excellent; really clean and Paul had clearly made an effort to make us feel welcome (including laying out clean towels and mints on the bed, kind of like a hotel).

    The guest manual was really helpful so getting to the apartment and making use of all of the facilities was easy.

    This is a great example of why Air BnB is (email hidden) for frequent travelers (particularly if you want to stay somewhere nice in London without having to dig deep). O - and the apartment has a Sky Sports subscription, awesome.

  • Paul's apartment was everything that we could have hoped for. It was exactly what we needed for 5 days. The location, though in zone 3 and a bit of a train ride from the center of London, was fantastic. Right by a fabulous little park, my friend and I were able to go running. Be aware that the park is quite tiny and after a few loops, you would be inclined to go running along the road.

    The apartment was very clean and spacious. As we were on vacation, the satellite tv kept us very well entertained with movies when we were at home. The kitchen had all the equipments we needed for making breakfast before we went out.The Pontoon dock station is as described, right next to the apartment, and about less than a five min. walk.

    I thoroughly enjoyed staying at Paul's. Would absolutely recommend his place, as I would stay there again when I am in London.

    I did not have the pleasure to meet with Paul, but our communication, typically through email, was always cordial and friendly. If you are looking for a quiet and beautiful location, Paul's is the place for you.

    P.S. The apartment is close to the South (Bank) airport, I believe. And though you'd occasionally hear a plane fly by, you'd barely notice it unless you were outside or had the windows open.

    All in all, a delightful stay. Thank you Paul.

  • The apartment was absolutely perfect. The location was almost perfect for visiting ExCel. 20 min to walk, is fine for a sunny day, but a little bit too long when it is raining.
