About this listing
A brilliant bright and airy 1 bed room apartment in a highly sought after location that gives you 'London village' experience while only 20mins tube ride to major tourist attraction (Trafalgar Square, Buckingham Palace).
Belsize Park tube station is literally 3mins away from the flat and Hampstead Heath Overground is 15mins walk.
The apartment itself is located on the 2nd floor of a 2 storey (website hidden) consists of a large double bedroom, living room with open kitchen (modern kitchen and you can use it!), bathroom and....a balcony! Of course there is also wifi and TV.
Belsize Park / Hampstead is a lovely neighbourhood with cafes, gastro pubs, restaurants and nice little shops. If you want to talk about nature, Hampstead Heath and Primrose Hill are only 15-20mins away by foot. And worth to mention, the famous Camden town is only 2 stops away! (or 30mins downhill if you wnat to walk)
Our host Retno was very helpful and kept in touch with us till we checked in. The flat was also the same as described and in a very nice neighbourhood with a lovely view of tennis courts from the balcony.
However, the place is good for two people as it has a small lounge and no extra bed for third person.
The host canceled this reservation 13 days before arrival. This is an automated posting.
Retno made us feel very welcome by making sure we knew how to get to the apartment and was very helpful with some local places to eat and things to do. From the apartment you are a couple of minutes to the underground station or multiple bus stops making it easy to get out and reach any place in the London metro and beyond. And if you are not feeling like going far, there are some pretty darn good food options locally and things to do nearby with parks and Camden Market right down the hill.
Retno was a very gracious host. I felt very welcome at her lovely apartment. Communication was great and she was very helpful in every way. Great experience!
We stayed at Retno's apartment for 4 days in June 2015. The apartment was just like how it was shown on the site and had many more little notes around the house to tell the guest about the place & the items available. I had written to Retno while booking that I'll be staying with my little daughter and wife. Retno wrote to me weeks before my trip and gave me all the directions and notes to reach the place and numbers to call. She even asked me if I need anything for my daughter upon arrival. She wrote again give me information about commute, weather & food in London including suggestions for London touristy places. All in all, she went out of her way to help me in providing all the information and is one of the sweetest person we can come across.
This was my first time through Airbnb and my experience staying at Retno's place has made me a big fan of Airbnb and have so far recommended both Retno's place & Airbnb to all my friends.
Retno's apartment was very nice indeed. A 2 minute walk from the tube station, so very handy for the city.
The apartment was very clean and tidy, with all of the amenities you would expect for an airbnb stay. I enjoyed the view of the tennis club, watched some of a keenly contested league match one evening from the balcony..bonus!
We communicated before and during the stay, although Retno was away, everything went very smoothly thanks to one of Retno's friends letting me in and showing me around.
I will use the apartment again if I am ever if London, it's a lovely place and really handy for town. Thanks Retno.
The flat is located in north London in a very safe, quite neighborhood. Commuting to major locations took around 20 mins. Her flat is very cozy, clean, and all as she has described. Although I didn't get to meet her personally, Retno was very helpful in helping me out for touring in London. I highly recommend this place.
