  • Our experience at Alessandro's studio was like many of the others' who have left reviews here, I expect.
    The place is exactly as it is described, no more, no less.
    Very comfortable and intimate--perfect for 2. I would not recommend this place for a couple with a child, however; as it is quite tight once all your luggage and stuff is inside.
    The location could not be better. In fact, it's the most attractive thing about this place. The studio is located on a quiet street, but only a stone's throw from everything you'll want to see in London.
    Alessandro's directions are extremely helpful, and check-in was a breeze. We were greeted with a bottle of red wine on the table and snacks and bottled water in the fridge.
    The downsides: walking up four flights of stairs after traveling or walking around all day; the shared bath is not as private as you'd like; and the temperature in the studio in June is a little stifling, while opening the window let in a ton of noise in the early morning.
    Aside from that, we really couldn't complain. Very good value all in all.

  • Alessandro left good directions as far as checking-in. We were pleased with the place, even though we had to climb 4 floors up without an elevator. The neighborhood is nice and quiet, although we did have an incident on the day we checked out, where strangers approached us posing us police officers asking for our passports! They were obviously scammers, but we were surprised that it happened there.

    Our only major misgiving with this listing, was that the air mattress for the 3rd occupant (my 22 year-old son) kept deflating making it VERY uncomfortable. Prior to booking it, I had checked with Alessandro on the comfort of the air bed and he said that there would not be a problem. Needless to say, my son was not happy sleeping on a saggy air bed for 3 nights. We reported the deflating air bed to him after the first night, but nothing was done.

    We would recommend this listing for two guests, but will be hesitant to recommend for three because of the air bed.

  • Petit studio clair et très calme, et surtout très bien placé.

  • Our stay in this studio was great!

    Bright ,very clean and cosy! Alessandro's tips and maps were very useful, he was always answering our questions when needed.

    On arrival, it was fantastic to find fresh water and orange juice in the fridge along with biscuits and cereals.

    We told Alessandro when we booked that we would arrive early and he managed to get the keys with a perfect timing. The day we left, Carol offered to keep our luggage to help us enjoying our last afternoon in London.

    To reach the studio you have to climb stairs but it was a small price to pay as we had a wonderful view at night: full moon over the roofs!

    The neighborhood was very quiet, well situated (a bus stop a few steps away on Belgrave Road, underground station within 5-10 minutes on foot, and Victoria station within 10 minutes).

    One little thing one must know before booking: the walls are thin so you can hear if someone takes a late shower (but it didn't happen to us).

    In short, many thanks to Alessandro and his crew! This place helped a lot in making our stay in London a wonderful time!

  • We enjoyed our stay a lot! For a short trip to London with our 11-year-old son, who had never been there before, it was the perfect location! Coming from Gatwick aiport it was so convenient! - The appartment is beautifully decorated and very clean and well equiped. Moreover with very nice details as a welcome bottle of wine and some things for breakfast. Moreover we were very well attended personally by Caro who kept our luggage the day of departure. - So we can really highly recommend it!

  • Everything was absolutely perfect! The apartment is situated in a quiet neighborhood near multiple train stations and walking distance from many attractions, including Buckingham Palace and Westminster Abbey.

    Alessandro left us a bottle of wine along with coffee, tea and cereal. The apartment was very clean and well taken care of - exactly as the pictures show.

    I would highly recommend staying here!

  • My husband and I stayed here for 6 days on a belated honeymoon and we had such a lovely stay in this apartment! Amazing location (near Victoria and Pimlico tube stations, so handy), adorable and quiet neighborhood, clean and well kept apartment with a comfortable bed and just enough space for the two of us. We didn't actually meet Alessandro since he had given me all the information in advance but everything was smooth and stress free. This apartment is up four flights of stairs which was difficult on some of the days when we had already walked a lot and were tired but we knew that going in and the apartment itself made up for any discomfort getting there. There were people staying in the opposite studio so we did share our toilets and shower with them but we actually never saw them and the bathrooms were always very clean. The washer wasn't working the whole time we were there which was a bit disappointing since we had planned on doing laundry but overall we really cannot recommend this apartment enough! A great price and such a goodneighborhood.

  • Nous avons passé une semaine dans cet appartement. Il convient très bien pour deux personnes. Il est très propre. Douche et toilettes communes à 2 studios mais ça ne nous a pas posé de problèmes. Il est situé dans un quartier résidentiel très calme avec malgré tout, des commerces alimentaires à proximité et de nombreux restaurants en tous genres. Proche de Victoria station (7-8 minutes à pied), il est bien desservi par le métro. Il y a aussi un arrêt de bus tout près. Alessandro répond très vite au téléphone et est très serviable. Très contents...Michel

  • My wife and I had a great experience with Alessandro. The check in was easy. The studio is a nice clean space with good proximity (~5-10 min walk) to Victoria station (which makes going anywhere in the city easy). Alessandro was very nice and gave us good suggestions for food in the area. Overall, definitely a good experience, would stay there again.

About
I'm brazilian from Sao Paulo living in London since April 2009. I'd describe myself as a passionate, enthusiastic and proactive person. I'm always following my dreams because they come true. I think every day is a good day! Actually I'm running my own business, a property management company that cares about people. I love cooking, wines, coffee, breath taking views, spending time with my family. I have a special passion for my close "soul" friends. I'm crazy about traveling and all the discoveries I make every time I meet new people and visit new places.
