Great location and very quite. The apartment is beautiful, beds are super comfortable. Fernando is a wonderful host. He was out of the country but responded to emails quickly while we were having some issues with the water. We met the cleaning lady on our arrival and departure. Very nice and sweet. She did a really good job in the apartment, leaving everything perfect for us. My husband and I truly enjoy our stay and we would definitely come back.
Fernando was a great host. Responded to emails and concerns quickly and offered to have groceries waiting in the flat when we arrived. The place was amazing - full of character and very spacious. We brought our 3 year old and he loved the space (and the fish!). I especially liked the fact that this space was on ground level so it was easy to manage with our stroller. Also, there is a Sainsbury open until midnight a few minute walk away.
Fernando's place is exactly as described/pictured. Upscale, spacious, very well designed home in a fabulous location. It's steps to Fitzroy Square, 5 minutes or less walking distance to tons of restaurant options and 2 main tube lines, and walkable to many major sites in London. As great as the location is, it is also very quiet. We loved coming home after a long day on the town and sitting on the terrace to enjoy a quiet drink. Fernando was traveling while we were there but proved to be a great host, arranging a key handoff and leaving beautiful lilies in the dining room for our arrival. Bathrooms and kitchen are very well appointed as well. We'd definitely stay here again.
Fernando's home is exactly as pictured. Really lovely. Fernando is a wonderful host and gave us ideas for restaurants etc. He has really thought of everything for his guests. Right down to a beautiful bunch on fresh flowers on the dining table. The home is very central and walking distance to most tourist locations. Fabulous restaurants within a 5 minute walk. Would highly recommend to anyone considering staying in London. We would love to go back next year and stay in Fernando's beautiful home. Thank you Fernando for making our London stay a fabulous experience. Cheers Wendy and Jim.
The flat was just as described. But there was more... the towels and sheets were wonderful and the bathrooms included nice toiletries. While we didn't meet Fernando in person, he was always available through email and was very responsive. I would certainly recommend this flat.
The second time that I have stayed in Fernando's gorgeous terrace house - it was great to be back! The house is as lovely as ever and this time it was super to sit out on the balcony and in the downstairs garden and enjoy the warm weather.
The house is definitely in one of the best positions in London - so close to everything. It is 5 minutes walk to Warren St Tube which takes you to Leicester Square, Charing Cross and Embankment. Perfect for a theatre lover such as myself. Also it's only 10 minutes walk to Oxford St and Regent St as well as many fine restaurants.
Thanks to Fernando who was there at 9am so my son and I could drop our bags early and head off to a funeral. It was much appreciated.
I hope to return to Fernando's fabulous Fitzrovian pad next year.
Mycket tillmötesgående värd. Vi var två par som åkte och storleken var perfekt för oss. Lägenheten motsvarade våra förväntningar, den var både cool och funktionell. Extra plus för uteplatsen! Läget är suveränt. Gångavstånd till centrala London det finns också många restauranger i närheten. Trots detta var det ändå en lugn gata och det var inget som störde. Man sov ostört med öppen balkongdörr i sköna sängar. Men ta med tofflor, det kan vara kallt på golven. Bra w-fi också. Rekommenderas, kan gärna tänka mig att återvända.
