Josef has been a great host. From the time we start de reservation in airbnb, until we get there, he was truly helpful, with timetables, best tracks, some nice tourist tips. Although the bathroom and kitchen are shared with them, their presence was always discreet, so we never had the feeling of being invading their space, nor our space being invaded. The house was very clean, and the location, was very nice:10 min to Victoria Station by train, 20 min by bus. There are transportations all night to get there. It has been a great experience that we hope repeat soon.
Great location for a weekend trip to London. Close to bus and train station (within 30 minutes you're in the center of London). Room is big enough to host a family of four. Josef and Anka are very helpful and friendly and they responded fast on all our requests. This apartment has all basic facilities, reasonable beds and the bathroom has a good shower. Price vs. quality is definitely good.
Tip for travellers from Europe : Bring some travel adapters for the UK power outlets. Fortunately we could borrow one frome Anka.
I stayed with Josef for 2 nights during a business trip and thoroughly enjoyed his hospitality. Everything was taken care of and there was even a "Guest Guide" in the room to help you with getting around London and the flat. Josef recommended some neat places to check out during my stay which I really appreciated.
There was a great selection of places nearby for drinks and food, one of them being a bike shop with a bar! And another which made the best kebab I've had in ages. Everything is well within walking distance, and public transport is just 5-10mins away – making it easy to get around.
All in all, Josef has a neat flat and a very large spare room with a comfortable bed.
If you're visiting London and want a pleasant experience – you should definitely book with Josef!
My partner and I spent 2.5 weeks with Josef and Anka, and we loved every minute! The flat is generous in size, and the room we stayed in was very large and accommodating indeed. Josef and Anka are both wonderful hosts and are a wealth of knowledge. The entire flat was cleaned regularly, and is fully equipped for a long or short stay with plenty of fridge and cupboard space, and the shower is fantastic with unlimited hot water! Denmark Hill is a great location, close enough to all of the action but a nice quiet neck of the woods. There are three good bars in easy walking distance of the flat (i.e. within 10 mins) and a large Sainsbury's just over the hill. Buses run from around the corner into the heart of London 24x7 and the train connections are great also. We highly recommend this place to anyone looking for a good priced abode and great hosts... and although we didn't get to enjoy the rooftop terrace (not warm enough) the views are spectacular! Thanks Josef and Anka :)
We enjoyed staying at Josef's house. He and his flatmates were friendly and welcoming. However the bathroom was very unclean and one key is not enough for 4 people. And we were a bit sad that we didn't get the 5th bed, because I asked about that before I booked the room.
Hi Angela, the room was listed for 4 people, since it was New Year's Eve and very difficult to find an affordable and comfortable place to stay in London during this period for groups your size, I accepted that your extra guest could stay for no additional cost, but I couldn't guarantee a bed for the 5th person, only an Air Mattress or the sofa/couch with blanket, I accommodated the extra person the best i could, which you told me would be staying just 1 night, but then you extended this to 2 nights when you arrived, I accepted this, as it is difficult to find accommodation in London during New Year.
I stated this in our correspondence before you confirmed your reservation. I said: "There are 3 beds, 1 king and 2 singles. That's the max capacity of the room, I can't add any more beds, sorry!" But you confirmed the reservation, knowing this.
The listing also says that only 1 set of keys is included, most of the guests that stay in the room are families of 4 or couples, so 1 set of keys is enough, if you would have informed me beforehand that you needed more than 1 set of keys, I could have arranged this for you, no problem.
As you can see from the many previous positive reviews, the house and room are kept very clean, it is very important to me. I'm sorry on this occasion it was not up to your standards for your large group.
Josef was a very knowledgable and helpful host. The room was large enough for four. It was very warm in the winter time. This place was very close to all public transport, laundromat and supermarket. It had 2 really great London pubs close by.
We really enjoyed our 3-week stay in Josef's flat. Nice neighborhood, great access to bus stops for several lines, & to Denmark Hill station. Easy walk to grocery store, great Indian & Thai takeout just down the street. We came and went at all hours and often felt like we had the flat to ourselves. Josef and his flatmate were terrific company when we connected around the teakettle. Excellent wireless in the flat.
Nice place, Nice view.
Joseph told me useful iPhone apps and how to enjoy London.
30mins to central of city by train.
Large 1bed and 2 single beds.
It's been a great experience, actually my first one with Airbnb. Josef and Anca were very kind. The house has a perfect location, it was easy to reach but being so close to the centre it is in a quite neighbourhood. I definately recommend it!
Unsere erste Erfahrung mit Airbnb war spitze! Die Gastgeber sind absolut freundlich und unkompliziert, das Haus liegt in einer guten Lage und bietet alles, was man so braucht. Auch für vier Personen wird es im Zimmer nicht zu eng.
I did not see Josef that much, but the place was very clean and close to the train station as promised. Plenty of markets close by. This was a great place to stay and I would recommend it to anyone.
This is the final rate, including any fees from the host and Airbnb.
