Great hosts! Great location!
That was my first room in Airbnb and that's a really good experience for me. i felt like i was in my home.
i think the church is very characteristic. the house was so clean and tidy.
Mark & Jose are really great guys and thanks for their friendship. I had really great times in Mark&Jose's house.
Look no further, Jose and Mark are THE BEST. They're so sweet and funny, and they live close to so many cool things, and are cool enough to appreciate it and send you in the right direction. I couldn't have been luckier to stay in such a cute (spacious!) happy apartment and make two new friends.
We could not have asked for better hosts than Jose and Mark! Lets be honest: it can always be awkward when staying with people you don't know. Not the case AT ALL with these two. They were both so kind and accommodating- we both felt incredibly welcome and comfortable while staying in their home. When we were unsure how to make it to the airport for a very early morning flight, Jose kindly grabbed his computer and helped us coordinate our route.
Jose and Mark's flat is only 2-3 minutes walking distance from public transport that takes you anywhere in the city. We flew in from Heathrow and had no troubles finding the flat with Jose's directions. The neighborhood is safe and trendy, with plenty of bars and restaurants suitable to all tastes.
The room was very pleasant- clean, comfortable, quiet, and spacious enough for the two of us and all of our luggage. Highly recommended!
Thanks again to Jose and Mark for a great stay. We will be sure to return when back in your great city!
Jose & Mark a two great guys and hosts - really friendly and open minded - but on the other hand I had the feeling I've been totaly private in my nice room. Everything was in best condition and clean - but the best of all: the appartment is perfectly located in a very interesting and alive area of London, extremly near to town and some really nice places like the flower market on columbia or the big fleamarket on brick lane...the guys are great in giving ideas where to go or have a sight...for people from the us it might give an idea to say that the area reminds me a bit of nowadays Brooklyn...Thank you very much for having me, I hopefully will come back to your place...all the best:-)
I would definately recommend Jose and Mark as your hosts. They are friendly and make you feel at home in their very nice apartment. It is situated in a special churchbuilding. The apartment is clean and the room has everything you need.
The neighbourhood is perfect when you like wondering around Brick Lane, flowermarket, sundaymarket, eating at one of the many Vietnamese restaurants, chilling in a coffeebar, etc. The public transport to everywhere in London is on walking distance.
Jose and Mark were very welcoming during our stay and flexible despite our late arrival at their place. We enjoyed to talk with them and they suggested us several places to see in the neighborhood. About the district Hoxton/Shoreditch is very nice and animated with lots of vintage stores. The apartment was very clean, comfortable and cosy. It is located in an old church which makes the place original.
The area is well deserved (bus and underground) with a bus stop at 2min walk which takes you directly to central London.
We recommend this place to all the visitors who wants to discover a new side of London.
Jose and Mark were very welcoming. The room is inside a great apartment inside a beautiful old building. It was easy to find, and close to transport and all manner of great places to eat and drink. Recommended!
Jose and Mark have been very good hosts. They made me feel welcome and at home and were always available when I needed them. My arrival time shifted back and forth but it caused no problem as they were very flexible. The flat was very clean and tidy in a convenient location to explore Hoxton, Shoreditch and Brick Lane. Don't forget to pick their brains as to where to go and what to do.
This review is actually on behalf of my parents who stayed at José and Mark's nice apartment for a couple of days in October. They warmly recommend a stay in this room for when you're visiting London. The communication prior to and during their stay was flawless. They neighborhood is lively and José is very hospitable. He respects your privacy and it's important to him that you feel at ease. The bed was comfortable (perhaps a bit short for the taller amongst you) and there is plenty of closet space in the room to store your belongings.
Jose & Mark were a pleasure to deal with, good communication & an easy-going attitude. They left our flat clean & tidy. Would happily recommend.
