There were three of us for five days in the very comfortable neat flat of Suzanne that we exactly found as described. We were completely satisfied with the flat, the surrounding and very convenient shopping facilities for food. The public transport connection could not be better for visiting the sights of London. The contact with Suzanne was very easy and fast. Although we arrived London with 5 hours delay Suzanne met us at the subway station. That was great. We can recommend the apartment without restrictions of any kind and will do this to our friends and relatives.
Nous avons passé 13 jours chez Suzanne. L'appartement propre et confortable correspondait tout à fait à la description. Le quartier est calme, proche du centre de Londres et bien desservi par les bus ou le métro. Notre hôte était à l'étranger et pourtant elle a toujours été très disponible et a répondu immédiatement à nos questions pour que notre séjour se déroule parfaitement. Tous ses engagements ont été tenus. Nous reviendrons.
we stayed at suzanne's apt for 10 days.suzanne wasn't in london at that time but she made sure that her friend would meet us when we came to london. the apt was very cosy in a very quiet neighbourhood. the neighbours that we met were very friendly. the apt was equipped with everything we needed for our 10 days stay and the bed was very comfortable. although suzanne was in china at that time she was available for us when we needed her.on our next visit to london we will sure stay again at suzanne's apt.
Suzanne was very easy to communicate with and extremely helpful in the lead up to our arrival, providing detailed transport information and tips. Checking in and out was hassle-free, and Suzanne was exceptionally accommodating of our requests. The apartment is attractive, comfortable, clean, and quiet, with all conveniences. Suzanne also provided many thoughtful extras. Kennington is a great base for exploring London - feels very safe, supermarkets are nearby, and there are plenty of transport options. Also within walking distance of many attractions (The Oval Cricket Ground, both Tate Galleries, footpath along the Thames to the inner city, Vauxhall Pleasure Gardens, to name a few). Highly recommended!
Notre séjour chez Suzanne était notre première expérience airbnb et elle s'est très bien déroulée. Nous avons été ravis! L'appartement est très lumineux, dans un quartier sympathique et extrêment bien connecté par les bus et le métro au centre de Londres. La communication avec Suzanne s'est très bien déroulée. Elle nous à envoyé à l'avance toute la documentation concernant le logement et le quartier environnant. Elle n'a pas pu nous accueillir directement car elle était en voyage mais elle avait organisé un rdv avec une de ses amies pour nous remettre les clefs. En arrivant nous avons trouvé une gentille lettre de Suzanne avec beaucoup d'explications. Elle avait acheté pour nous quelques provisions pour notre arrivée et nous a financièrement dédommagé parce que sa machine à laver venait de tomber en panne. J'ai été très favorablement impressionnée par ce geste. Nous n'avons pas pu rencontrer Suzanne mais nous avons échangé plusieurs messages sympathiques durant et après notre séjour. Suzanne a mis tout en oeuvre pour que notre séjour soit réussi et nous la remercions chaleureusement!
My aunt and uncle had a wonderful stay at Suzanne's. The flat was clean and tidy and the instructions she left us were very helpful. The location is also great and I will definitely recommend it to friends and relatives who want to come visit London!
Suzanne was a great host - very accommodating and responded quickly to all questions. The location was great, quick tube ride to everything. The flat was clean and very spacious for 3 people.
About the Host, Suzanne
I am a keen traveller, especially around SE Asia, and a lover of all things Chinese, although I have just discovered Morocco where I started surfing lessons, you're never too old! A big fan of the gym - there's a pay-as-you-go one (Pure Gym) close to my apartment if that interests you too. I am a minimalist with relatively few possessions aside from my travelling souvenirs and prefer an uncluttered lifestyle. I can't live without my photo albums ( yes, a bit old school) of family and travels. Bit of a foody, there are some lovely Portuguese and Spanish tapas places in Vauxhall / Stockwell and the infamous Brunswick House Cafe near Vauxhall station.
