The apartment was wonderful. In a great up-and-coming area with lots of shops, restaurants, and pubs nearby (one pub was practically right next door!). Easy access to the metro. The apartment itself was beautiful - nicely furnished and with all necessary amenities (dishwasher, fully stocked with dishes and kitchenware, and a drawer full of tea). The living room was lovely to lounge in and was an overall impressive atmosphere. The beds were comfortable and there was ample bedding. I would say that this apartment is possibly better suited towards taller people (my family is quite short and had difficulty reaching dishes and such - although there is a stool available!) and both bathrooms are downstairs, which can be slightly inconvenient. The second bathroom is also primarily glass, so we felt a bit exposed while bathing. Other than that, it really is a marvelous apartment and we truly enjoyed our stay there!
We loved the house. David was there to greet is on our arrival and he explained how everything worked to us. The beds are good, the bathrooms are both very nice and the house is decorated with care. The house is very well situated, AMD you can walk to Oxford Street, or take the underground or bus which are all nearby. Shops for every day shopping and a lot of restaurants are just around the corner.
Fernando's home is perfect! The home is beautifully decorated and cared-for, in a perfect Fitzrovia location. Home was incredibly comfortable - quality beds, linens, bathrooms, and kitchen. Fernando is also a great, friendly host who is very accommodating and helpful. I stayed for 5 nights with my visiting parents, giving us plenty of space and a great central location to explore London. I would certainly stay here again next time in London!
I am giving this flat the highest possible rating. It was exactly as described -- two floors of a modernized 18th Century townhouse on a very quiet street in a terrific neighborhood that had easy access to two Underground stations. Given property values in London, we felt the price was fair. We shared it with another couple.The beds were comfortable, the bathrooms were unusually stunning, and the kitchen was well-supplied with basics. There is a lovely two-level garden.
Fernando is the host one wishes for. When we arrived, he met us with flowers and wine and gave us a full tour, showing us how everything worked. He let us know about a leak that was affecting the hot water supply, but he was able to patch it until the plumber arrived a couple of days later. He was easy to reach by phone with other small questions that came up. I would definitely stay there again.
We wish we could've stayed in the flat longer! The place grew on us, and the neighborhood (which is fantastic) really began to feel like home. Fernando was a great host and if we had any issues, he was right on top of everything. The location was surrounded by a choice of Tube stops, casual to fine dining, and quiet streets. Don't miss the Banksy just around the corner!
My wife, youngest son and I have had the perfect time staying here for the last two weeks. We arrived with lots of suitcases and papers, and we have found it a great home in which to stay, as well as to work. Everything we needed was there, and Fernando was always available when we had any questions. The location is perfect for transport and for restaurants, close to Fitzroy Square, a quiet haven in London.
