  • We had a great time in London and the Place was like it was shown in the pics. It was fresh, new well equiped and if you want it could have been in to cook by yourself. It was Close to the tube (Victoria station) and walking distance to al lot of spots. So just positive things to say about the place and the only thing that could have been better was the bed. It was ok but a little to hard for our taste.

    But we can really recomend this place.

  • Great flat very clean and very nice also to have essentials in the cupboard and a bottle of wine!

  • This is my first time using Airbnb. And I should say the whole experience is fabulous.

    The facilities in the studio could suffice all you need to stay either for only a few days or several weeks. Since it is a studio in central London so it is small as expected.

    The location of this studio is excellent: within 5-10 mins you can reach Victoria station where there are plenty of transportation e.g. coach, rail, tube, bus you could choose to reach anywhere in London and elsewhere. Also it is close to Pimlico underground station and has easy access of buses to places like British museum, Tarfalgar square, Westminster, etc.

    Within walking distance you can get to Salisbury supermarket, Tesco express, pharmaceutical store as well as convenient shop. There are also many pubs and restaurants nearby. You can even walk up to visit Tate Britain and retrieve to Morpeth Arms to take a sip of real Ale and take a peek at the MI6 building opposite the Thames river via their spying room.

    Alessandro is a great host as he would provide you with abundant information for your visit and is quite responsive, flexible and friendly.

    So if you are travelling alone or in a pair I would highly recommend you this studio.

    March 2014
  • A very nice apartment in a prime location. It has a modern kitchen and bathroom, and access is very easy. The area is very nice, and the value was well worth it!

    January 2014
  • This was my first time using airbnb, and I'm very glad I found Alessandro's flat through the site. Processing my transaction through airbnb's site was flawless.

    The flat is exactly what you see in the photos. It's small but has a lot of charm, and there's definitely enough room for two.

    Upon our arrival, the place was tidy and clean, and there was a welcoming bottle of wine on the table for us. The cupboards were stocked with cereal, tea, coffee, and snacks. The fridge had beverages, and we had pots, pans, glasses, etc. that we used throughout our 3 week stay in the UK. The walls are somewhat thin and you could hear heavy footfalls, but all was tolerable.

    Alessandro gave us ample information about the area/neighborhood and how to get around the city via bus or the tube. The flat's location is absolutely superb - near major train/underground stations (email hidden). bus route that can take you to all corners of the city (directly or with minimal transfers).

    Overall, our stay was quite a wonderful and positive experience. Though I never met Alessandro in person, he was a great host and answered our questions and concerns, along with Carol who was in charge of keeping the place clean. Carol also helped us with our needs and did indeed keep the place very clean.

    Our trip to London was a very memorable one, and part of this was having a small place we could call our temporary home while in the UK. If you are planning on visiting London, I highly recommend Alessandro's flat - especially, if you are looking for a place to call your home away from home.

  • This was our first airbnb experience and our high hopes of a positive experience were exceeded! Alessandro was an exceptional host, he arranged to meet us at the apartment early to store our luggage and provide a detailed list of things to see and do in London.

    Our apartment was clean and tidy and looked the same as the photos. The fridge and cupboards were stocked with small treats that were a nice little touch. At the end of our stay we were able to check out late before leaving London.

    The apartment is in an excellent location with trains and buses all very accessible. The apartment is also within walking distance to many of London's top attractions as well as some good local cafes, restaurants and supermarkets. Alessandro provided a annotated map of the top attractions and best transport options to reach each destination, which was very useful.

    We would certainly stay here again when we're next in London!

    November 2013
  • Alessandro was very helpful and gave great tips for the area. Check-in was easy and the room was clean and well organized.
    The bathroom was very small and the studio was cozy, but fit 2 people for the weekend.

    November 2013
  • I had an overall positive experience at Alessandro's apartment. It was centrally-located and within walking distance of many of the sites. In the neighbourhood there are plenty of cafés, plus a Sainsbury/Tesco to pick up anything you might need. The apartment itself was on the small side, but it was clean, warm, and well-stocked. Alessandro even left some bread, milk, and a bottle of wine for us, which we definitely appreciated.

    My only issue was that I did not find the bed very comfortable. I could feel the springs through the foam, which didn't make for the best sleep for me.

    October 2013
  • Alessandro has everything organized very well, his instructions were really easy to follow and understand.
    The apartment is small, but really beautiful, the location cannot be better, we thoroughly enjoyed it!
    Everything was clean, except for the bathroom, which should have been cleaned a little bit better (nothing serious, just a few hairs and dust here and there, and the shower and the faucets had limescale spots so it looked messy).
    Even with that, I would stay in this apartment again and would highly recommend it.

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.
