Carries house was very clean and very comfortable. I stayed here with my family. It was small but not impossible.
l'appartement est très bien situé, dans un immeuble plein de charme. l'intérieur est un peu vétuste, mais fonctionnel.Cuisine bien équipée, la literie du canapé est meilleure que celle du lit! nous avons passé un excellent séjour.
Dopo aver preso accordi via mail con l'host ho trovato una persona che parlava solo spagnolo ad aspettarmi per il check-in e a darmi istruzioni per il check-out. La posizione dell'appartamento ottima, a due passi da hyde park e ben servito dai mezzi. La descrizione dell'appartamento fedele, lo spazio si riduce notevolmente quando sono aperti entrambi i letti ma come punto d'appoggio per visitare Londra è l'ideale. Rapporto qualità prezzo impareggiabile.
Malheureusement, l'appartement que nous avons eu ne correspondait pas du tout à la photo du site internet. L'herbergement était pour trois personnes et non pas 4 personnes. Toutefois la décoration était sympa, l'appartement propre et très bien situé. Nous avons était déçu par le petit déjeuner ( des paquets de céréales déjà ouverts et à moitier vides..).Le quartier était calme et bien désservi.
The apartment is in a great location, and it was perfectly as it was described. Carrie was a great host and she was very flexible about the time of our arrival.
