Rachael was wonderful - she emailed me all the details for the Apartment and everything was just as expected! Getting into the Apartment was super easy, and the location was VERY convenient and walkable to most anything in Philly. The apartment met my needs very nicely, but then again I'm a business traveler who doesn't use it much but to sleep and shower. Definitely recommended!
Rachael's place is a real gem- centrally located with Oxford Street, Soho, Piccadilly Circus and tube stations within walking distance, the flat itself is exactly as depicted in the photographs. Yes, there is a busy pub downstairs but everything shuts down at 11:30am and we would recommend the breakfast place below ground level, just outside the pub and down the stairs.
Communication with Rachael and check-in/ check-out process was smooth and we did not face any issues. The only suggestion will be to leave clear instructions/ sign-posting on how to operate the power shower as it can be an unfamiliar process for some visitors (as was the case with my uncles who were staying at the flat), especially with the power switch being a bit away from the bath (so you wouldn't make the association unless you tinker around).
All in all, an excellent place that we would highly recommend to anyone visiting London.
Louise went out of her way to accommodate us and was very responsive and friendly.
Her apartment looks even better than photos on Airbnb!
Location is perfect - Chestnut street is full of lovely restaurants, grocery stores & shops - all you need, walking distance. There's a cute bakery 1 minute from the flat, streetlevel as well as two Starbucks shops within 5 min walking distance and Shake Shack just around the corner!
Will definitely stay there again, really enjoyed it.
It truly is the perfect center city location
Easy to reach host when needed (window sash broke while we were there)
Helpful and nice neighbors
Elevator to apartment functional
2 towels (although listed as accommodating 4 people)
Somewhat spartan -no pictures on walls, no dish or hand towels provided.
Coin-op laundry in basement is very slow, no change machine
For the price, the host could make a few investments in linens, towels and a picture or two, and then it would be a very nice rental. Location is excellent.
There are numerous hotels in the area but my husband and I were looking for an option with a separate bedroom for our two small boys - we like to be able to put them to bed and then stay up or have a separate room to take the one off vacation work conference call (arrrghhh) but can't do that in a traditional hotel room and often end up renting two rooms with an adjoining door. I came across Louise's condo and decided to give it a shot - it was great for us and our two small children, clean, close to everything, well laid out, and far less than two rooms in the area. The location is truly excellent. Parking took a minute as we spent some indecisive time "parking spot shopping" but ended up in a lot on Chestnut (that we passed twice due to the one way streets and our indecisiveness), 1 block away from condo that was $22 for 24 hours (in and out allowed) which I thought was more than reasonable. There is no dining table which made dinner a bit tough with our two littles who are 1 & 3 (the coffee table would normally be fine but it was glass and our boys are unpredictable - take it as a situational note for families with children vs a criticism as it would have been a non issue with just us or less energetic children) - definitely not a deal breaker as we took it as an opportunity to picnic on the floor. There is a CVS, food store, beer store and so many restaurants and shops down the street which was great as we could go out for a bit and feel like part of the city in between runs home for naps, tantrums and such. The furniture is not fancy but totally sufficient. All of the neighbors we met were really nice and Louise was a wonderful communicator and helped us with all items we needed clarification and help on. I would definitely recommend the place for anyone looking for a reasonably priced one bedroom location in the downtown area.
Louise was a great hostess who was extremely responsive. The place was as described, clean, convenient and comfy. I imagine I will stay there again.
The apartment was very nice and the area is amazing. A lot of good restaurants, coffee-shop and very close to Regent street and oxford street. The apartment is above a pub, but you can live with the noise (it stopped around 23.00).
Louise answered my message quickly and it wasn´t a problem to get the key even though we arrived late in the evening.
Great location, great living space, friendly and helpful owner.
Nice flat and excellent location
As someone who knows London well this is about as close to the centre of London life as you can get. Louise was the consummate host, nothing was too much trouble. Many thanks.
It was so wonderful to have Louise and her mother as guests! They were just perfect: respectful, clean, unbelievably pleasant and just simply wonderful people. I highly recommend them to the whole Airbnb community…5 stars in every category!!!
Rachael and her friends are great guests, and very friendly. They are always welcome back if they want to visit Hvar again.
Rachael is very pleasant person and wonderful guest!

Rachael, her mother and her friend were great guests! They were very friendly and left the flat clean and tidy. I can recommend Rachael to any host and she is always welcome back!
A good person profile very quiet and discrete one. A group without any problem.
Thank You Rachael for coming! Great and Nice Guests!! I hope to See you and your friends again someday! All the best ! Nicola

It was great to have Rachael and her friend stay. Rachael was super friendly and easy to deal with. It was a great help that she had sorted out a local SIM card so we had no trouble co-ordinating a time to meet up so that I could let her in. Rachael is a fellow AirBnB host so she knew and understood exactly what the AirBnB experience is all about.
Rachael is one of the most responsible and responsive people I know - over the years she's hosted me on two continents and been my guest as well, and she is always considerate, communicative, and ready to help with anything. Her London flat is the envy of all her friends, so spacious, light, and well-decorated, while being close to everything. I'd probably trust her with my life, and definitely with my comfort and belongings.
