Lesley was a great host. He met us in the apartment en explained everything very well. The apartment is a true gem. It is so nicely decorated and has everything to offer for a true holiday in London. The apartment is very close to the underground station Gt Portlandstreet and from there you can travel the whole city. In short: everything you need for a perfect city break. We will definitely recommend the apartment to others.
Lesley was an absolutely fantastic host! Easy and quick with communication during the booking process, and lovely to meet and chat with when we arrived.
Lesley himself is quite a character, and his apartment is packed with decades of memories from his travels. It's a very welcoming place to come home to after a long day of sightseeing.
The apartment is clean, cosy, comfortable, and only a couple minutes walk from the nearest Tube station, so you'll be anywhere in no time!
With such a welcoming host and quite possibly the loveliest apartment in London, couldn't recommended Lesley highly enough!
I love airbnb and have been using it for awhile, but this airbnb experience was easily the best and most interesting yet. Lesley is lovely and welcoming- he shows you everything in the apartment, left us a nice bottle of wine and belgian chocolates, and then took a shot of Hungarian palinka with us. He has a generous spirit and the most interesting stories.
The apartment is like a Wes Anderson film set- you're in a well curated dream world with clocks ticking and wind chimes chiming.
Everything about Lesley and his apartment is charming. I will not be staying anywhere else every time I come to London.
Lesley was friendly and welcoming and gave us a tour of his appartment and it's fascinating decor before leaving us to it. There was wine, chocolates, fruit and beers for us, as well as full use of everything in the house (tv, tablet, music etc). Centrally located, perfect for sightseeing and really close to Circle, Hammersmith & City, Metropolitan, and Bakerloo tube stations. 10 min walk from Euston too.
The place was clean, well presented, interesting and inviting, you could spend ours just looking around at all the Objet d'art and over 50 different clocks!
Her was there to meet us and wish us farewell, gave us both a set of keys, fresh bedding and fresh towels, and was a great host.
I stayed at Lesley's place with a friend while I had some exams in London. It is in a great location only a few minutes from the tube. Lesley was a great host- very friendly and accomodating. The place was comfortable and you never get tired of looking at the walls :-) Lesley was flexible with our arrangements and the chocolate he left for us was much appreciated! A great stay (apart from the exams!).
Staying at Lesley's flat was just perfect for us.
Lesley is a great host. He welcomed us upon our arrival and helped us to carry luggage all the way to his flat. Then, he showed around the house explaining the histories behind his collection which are fantastic. Wine,beer and a shot of his special liquor was served. We felt welcomed throughout the first encounter with him. And he let us leave our luggage in his flat on the very last day since our flight back home was at 9pm. Thanks to Lesley, we enjoyed the day without heave bags then came back to pick them up which , again, Lesley helped carrying down to the street.
The flat has everything you needed, from hair dryer to frying pans!
As I lived in London for two years in the past, I know very well of London's public transportation. And the location of the flat is what I appreciated the most during the stay. Just a minute walk from Great Portland Station, and a few minute walk from Regent's Park Station. The buses as well take you to the center of the city. Overall, the location was great.
One last thing! Regent's Park, my favourite park in London, is literally just next to you. If you enjoy relaxing in the nature, don't miss the opportunity.
I want to say a big thank you Lesley!
Lesley is a great host and his place is very neat and welcoming. We arrived early in the morning and Lesley was already waiting for us at the underground station - he walked us through all the "features" and house rules and made us feel like home. The apartment is very well located (2 minutes to underground stations and walking distance to Oxford Street, Soho etc.). Will recommend him and his location and will definitely stay here also the next time.
The apartment is as per the photos : original, very clean and well equiped
2 mn walk from the Metro great portland street.
Lesley welcomed us very well, even for our late checkin. not surcharged by the way. He even bought us a few things for dinner
Lesley's place is nice
It is near to subway station, just 2 mins walk and there are restaurants and supermarkets all around.
The apartment is big enough and is comfortable!!!
And Lesley picked us up in person and explained detailedly about his apartment.
Great experience here ;)
This is the only place to stay in London. The flat is magical! It's a home but also a treasure trove of interesting things. It's hard not to spend all your time looking at items.
Les was the best host, we arrived late and knew we'd find it hard to get food so he had food for us. Which is just the sweetest thing!
The flat is so convenient with easy access to Oxford St, tubes, the park and walking distance to most places. Not to mention super clean.
Les, we'll be back for sure. Thank you - Susie & Dave xxx
Les is a perfect guest, a real gentleman and very friendly and easy-going person at the same time. He was very respectful of my property and left the apartment just as he found it (or even in a better condition). I'd be very happy to have him as a guest again!
J'ai été ravie de passer ces quelques jours en croisant Lesley et sa compagne chez moi.
La politesse, la gentillesse et la discrétion que souhaiter de plus pour un hôte.
Recevoir Lesley est un plaisir.
