We staid at Ophelia's flat for a month. The flat was lovely with few antiques and it develops on two floors. It is also very well located, very close to the underground station of Euston Square and Warren street, and just opposite the hospital.
To us it was a very special time because of the arrival of our newborn daughter. And we are very grateful that we could stay there!
Ophelia was a perfect host and took good care of us and every detail.
I can honestly say I have made a new friend!!
Our host, Ophelia, was welcoming and very responsive before, during and after our stay. She answered all of our questions regarding the flat and surrounding area, was flexible in helping us pick up the flat keys, and took care of a minor water leak very quickly.
The flat is well-located very close to two tube stations, grocery stores, and many restaurants, and in walking district to other sites such as the British Library and British Museum. It is perfect for a family as it has a great kitchen, two bedrooms, and a spacious living room area. It's also a reader's paradise with books on every topic lining the walls in most of the rooms. We thoroughly enjoyed our time in the Gower Street Flat!
You cannot beat Ophelia's flat for a superb visit to London. Exactly as described, with every amenity of home you could think of. Location is unbeatable with short walks to 1 of 3 train stations which connect you easily to the rest of the city. As a host Ophelia is quick to respond to questions, & was welcoming even as we had been held up on our flight in. I really appreciate her attention to detail as she walks you through all the unique bits of the flat. Her pride of home is infectious as I found myself wiping up every last errant spot. I will miss morning tea & nightcaps on the balcony greatly. I have already & will highly recommend friends to stay with Ophelia, & I hope to stay with her again soon!
Ophelia es muy amable, nos resultó muy sencillo entendernos con ella a pesar de nuestro poco inglés. La decoración tiene mucha personalidad, no es el típico apartamento casi vacío para alquilar. Las fotos reflejan exactamente cómo es. La cocina está muy bien equipada y la terraza es muy (website hidden) ubicación es perfecta, no lejos del centro, bien comunicada en metro y en autobús y cerca de varios supermercados. Además, ver a todos los que fotografiaban la casa de Sherlock fue divertido.
Superbe appartement, parfaitement situé, à quelques mètres des métros Euston Square et Warren Street, et d'une demi-douzaine d'arrêts de bus.
Etonnement calme vue la situation, l'appartement est largement assez grand pour accueillir une famille de 4 personnes sans jamais se marcher dessus.
Amusant de voir tous les fans de la série Sherlock passer devant l'immeuble d'en face, mais en rien dérangeant.
Adresse à conseiller et à garder pour de futures vacances !
Orphelia is a wonderful host, reliable and helpful. Her apartment to is even better than I expected, with the main rooms very light and spacious. Everything was spotless and comfortable. We both enjoyed quiet nights and got good night's sleep, despite being in the heart of London. Orphelia doesn't mention it in her ad but there a couple of great local pubs, a coffee shop with cheap breakfasts, all a stone's throw away and Euston Station is less about a 4 mins walk. (Euston Square about 2 mins walk). Also a quick walk to Indian restaurants around the corner, especially a great and inexpensive vegetarian Indian restaurant (Ravi Shankar).
We had a wonderful week in the apartment of Ophelia. The location is super! The flat is very cosy, warm and clean. The kitchen is very well equipped. Next time in London we will try to book the same flat:) Thank you, Ophelia!
We had a great stay in London for around a week, the apartment was very nicely decorated and full of books (love that), the bedrooms were perfectly fine for 2 adults and 2 kids, the kitchen was working fine and the balcony was lovely. We were not far from the centre, the next planet organic shop, the tube etc... Ophelia was very helpful when needed and we would love to stay there again.
The apartment was in a great location, very close to several tube stations making it wery easy to see London. It had everything we needed to stay for nearly 2 weeks. Very comfortable, clean, well equiped and safe. The owner was very helpfull and accomodating. We really enjoyed our stay, I would absolutley recommend to others and would definitely stay again!
We had a very nice experience at Ophelia's place,the house was so nice and clean that we couldn't believe it! Everything went fine, very central, just 1 minute walk fron the tube station,very quiet... I would strongly recommend it. We will probably get in contact to you Ophelia to stay again during the summer. Thanks!!
Ophelia and her family were very kind and polite and left everything perfect! Tottaly recommend them!
Ophelia and family are great guests in many ways. The 'prior-to-arrival' communication was extremely good, i.e. fast replies and up to arrival last calls where they were in their journey. That allowed me to further plan my day. We did have an immediate good understanding from the beginning and it felt good that they really enjoyed their stay. They good in finding their way and they leave the place behind as if it was their own. I would love to have them back in the future!
