  • Amazing apartment! So close to everything and easy to catch public transport. Alessandro was very responsive and left light breakfast and beer and wine for us. Bed was very comfortable, plenty of storage space. Shared shower is slightly on the small side however would only be a problem if you were a larger person. Neighbourhood is cute with lots of great pubs and a supermarket nearby.

  • Passei 7 dias neste flat. O flat é relativamente bem localizado, mas ter malas grandes pode ser um problema, pois as estações de metrô são a 15 minutos a pé. Por outro lado, existem pontos de ônibus bem próximos ao flat. A cama é um pouco pequena, parece ser menor que uma cama de casal. O banheiro também é pequeno e não tem local para acomodar shampoo, sabonete, etc, o que torna o banho uma tarefa meio complicada. Como outras pessoas comentaram: seria interessante que trocassem toalhas e roupas de cama quando os hóspedes passassem muitos dias, como no meu caso. Passamos um pouco de calor, pois o sol da manhã estava muito forte e batia nas janelas do quarto. Não tinha ventilador. As escadas também atrapalham um pouco se você tiver malas muito grandes. Em um dos dias de nossa hospedagem, precisamos de informações sobre como descartar o lixo do flat e um rapaz entrou em contato conosco para nos explicar o que fazer; não deu bom dia, não se apresentou, foi seco e até um pouco irônico. O flat contém alguns lanches (leite, chocolate, café, açúcar, cereal, bebidas, vinho) e vários utensílios domésticos. Além disso é decorado com muito bom gosto e bem localizado. Próximo ao flat existem excelentes cafés e restaurantes. O contato com o anfitrião foi rápido enquanto fechávamos a hospedagem. Depois passou a demorar um pouco.

  • Siamo andati per la settimana di Pasqua, io, la mia compagna e la nostra bimba.
    Contattato Alessandro, che ci ha fatto avere informazioni riguardo le chiavi, ma anche per ragguagliarci a proposito dei ristoranti , pub, nelle vicinanze .
    L'appartamento , in ottime condizioni, è risultato un ottima soluzione per visitare Londra, anche perché in posizione strategica, ma al tempo stesso, tranquilla, non in zona trafficata.
    Lo consiglio veramente a tutti, bellissima esperienza, grazie, Alessandro.

  • Great studio, great location, great host! Thanks for the easy communication, check-in/out and the great stay Alessandro. Highly recommended!

  • We are a couple in our 50’s from France and spent 3 nights in Alessandro’s accommodation. We highly recommend this very clean, comfortable and luminous studio. The situation is excellent : near enough to walk to Victoria Station, a convenient bus route into central London (N°24 stop on Belgravia Rd, a stone’s throw from the studio), lots of eating options nearby and good supermarkets, and situated on a pleasant and relatively quiet street. We found the studio very clean, the bed comfortable, the kitchen very well-equipped .... The shared bathroom worked perfectly well. We also appreciated the little snacks, cereals, milk and drinks that were there for us. It’s a real plus to have your own private base in which to chill out (after a tiring touristy day) and eat in (one doesn’t necessarily want to have to eat out in London every evening) and …. relax! We would definitely use this accommodation again.

  • I rent this studio twice. It is a very nice place. I'd like to highly recommend.

  • We had a very nice week on vacation in London, staying in one of Alessandro's studios in Victoria/Pimlico. We had everything we needed (no TV or stereo, actually, but it didn't matter for us since we had laptops and other gadgets), and the location is great. Alessandro is a charming and attentive host and everything was perfect for our stay on arrival, including wine, milk, bread, coffee... and precious info. We found also the basics like salt, sugar and olive oil. Everything is well planned and brand new, including the comfortable and always clean bathroom and WC. The self-service laundry on site was great! The neighborhood is perfectly fine, safe and really convenient as a starting point to explore a city as large as London. I surely will recommend this place for my friends - and I, particularly, would be back there in a heartbeat. Hope it will be soon enough :)

About
I'm brazilian from Sao Paulo living in London since April 2009. I'd describe myself as a passionate, enthusiastic and proactive person. I'm always following my dreams because they come true. I think every day is a good day! Actually I'm running my own business, a property management company that cares about people. I love cooking, wines, coffee, breath taking views, spending time with my family. I have a special passion for my close "soul" friends. I'm crazy about traveling and all the discoveries I make every time I meet new people and visit new places.
