I love interior design, architecture traveling and meeting new people, so I am looking forward to hosting you here at my beautiful apartment.
Nous avons passé 3 nuits chez Tamara dans le quartier de Camden.
Tout s'est passé admirablement bien, l'appartement est agréable et confortable, et il est très bien situé (10 minutes de bus de st pancras). Un certain nombre de lignes de bus passent à proximité, ce qui fait que nous avons circulé exclusivement de cette façon pendant nos 4 journées à londres.
The apartment was lovely and absolutely perfect for our little family (couple with a 4 year old). The location is perfect: it is extremely quiet, with the bus that goes directly into the city around the corner and a playground nearby. We loved the roominess of the place (not a given in London!) and how bright and friendly it was. Tamara's instructions were also spot on and very helpful.
While the location is ok, there a issues with this flat. On our first night my daughter discovered the bed she was sleeping in was broken which caused her to fall through the mattress (consisting of 3 cushions) to the floor. Tamara responded to our email later the next day by saying she was insulted by my criticism of the broken bed. She never proposed to replace or repair the bed.
Unfortunately this marred our stay. We also found the toilet is stained dark brown below the waterline. Again Tamara simply acknowledged this with no proposal to do anything about it. There are beds for 3 people (including the broken bed). The 4th person has to sleep on the lounge. There were light globes not working and the wifi dongle was out of credit when we arrived. Tamara simply denied the wifi was out of credit, so that was the extent of any negotiations on the subject. Tamara is a take it or leave it kind of person. The kitchen is poorly equipped with odds and ends. Only 2 mugs, strange crockery and cutlery, blunt knives etc. There is a water pump next to the main bedroom that is quite intrusive but we eventually got used to the vibration and noise and the sound of water pouring into a tank.
Tamara's apartment is lovely and warm. The heating was on a timer for when we arrived. It comfortably sleeps a couple in the double room and one other adult in the single room. The couch is huge and could easily sleep another adult if needs be. The single room also has a baby's cot. It's a 15 minute walk to Camden Town and Camden Lock Market and the Stables are a must visit. The number 29 bus is outside on Camden Road and brings you all the way to the West End. We also visited Brick Lane vintage and food market on Sunday by getting the 29 bus to great Russell street and changing to the No. 8 to Brick Lane. Downloading the citymapper app for London is a definite must! We enjoyed a drink in a rock and roll bar 'the Good Mixer' and met some friendly people. It was Amy Winehouse's local and there are some beautiful murals of her in the bar. Booking Tamara's apartment was stress free and we can 100% recommend. It was nice and quiet also as it's a little off the main road.
El piso es especial.Un lugar acogedor y limpio en un barrio muy agradable. Todo genial excepto por dejarnos un gato en la casa si avisarnos previamente.
We stayed here with a toddler and baby and it worked really well. A lovely flat and good communication from Tamara. Nice living room to relax in in the evening. Feels like a nice neighbourhood and buses into central London from round the corner. 15 min walk to Camden tube and high street. Tesco metro 5 mins walk.
2 weeks in London, my friends and i really enjoyed the apartment and it neighborhoods! Feels like home. House was clean, nice, and spacious. Location was perfect! I love Camden Town! Eventho i didnt get a chance to meet Tamara, but she helped me and always reply my texts. Would love to stay there again if im coming back to London.
We had a pleasant stay at Tamara's flat in Richmond Hill. The pictures are accurate and Ricmond with surroundings are very nice , situated very near Heathrow airport. We didn't meet Tamara in person but had company of her cat Stanley. We didn't manage in getting access to internet so if that is important to you make sure it works from the start.
Nice flat, comfortable, perfect if you're traveling with young children.
We had a great time staying at Tamara's apartment. It was rather easy getting there and it had pretty much everything you need. Unfortunately the internet didn't work and the problem (no data left) couldn't be solved while my friends and I were there. Otherwise, I recommend staying at Tamara's apartment especially if you like Camden and all it's charms.
