Your very welcome to come and stay at this comfortable apartment in Paddington, I look forward to hearing from you.
This flat was totally fine for 4. We were late for the check-in (1h30 late...) and it didn't seem to be a problem at all. Jean-Jacques' cousin gave us some great touristic advices. The bathroom, even if it's not on the same floor was fine, and exclusively for our use...
To sum up, if you're looking for a good and cheap location, it's the deal !
Nous y sommes restés 4 nuits. L'appartement est bien situé près de la gare de Paddington, pas loin d'Hyde Park et nous avons été très bien accueillis pour la remise des clés, mais ce sont les seuls points positifs que nous avons noté : studio très petit, vétuste, très peu de mobilier (manque de chaises), aucun nécessaire pour nettoyer l'appartement (passer le balai) et surtout n'est pas un logement entier puisque la salle de bain et les WC se trouvent à l'étage en dessous.
Perfect location, very safe building. I was hours late arriving and my host was gracious and understanding about it. The flat works great for 1 or 2 people. Having laundry and a kitchenette was massively useful, and towels, sheets, kitchen stuff was available. One note of caution: the walls are thin between the flat and the unit next door, but lucky for us we only had noisy neighbors one night, Highly recommend this place!
The location was perfect, super close to a great Underground and railway station which makes getting around London and day trips for sightseeing easier. Jean was great at meeting up with me to hand off the keys, and even enlisting the help of the store owner below for when my lost luggage was to be delivered. The room and bathroom were clean, and suited mine and my friend's needs perfectly.
My son and I enjoyed our stay at Jean's. It's in a great location near the tube, the park and the Heathrow express. It's fair value for London.
Das Studio ist zwar klein, aber für einen Kurzaufenthalt für vier Personen völlig ausreichend. Es war sauber und die Lage ist absolut genial. Direkt am Bahnhof (mit Supermärkten) und Underground Station Paddington. Zum Hyde Park und Underground Station Lancaster Gate sind es nur wenige Minuten. Jean-Jaques war sehr nett, hilfsbereit und unkompliziert. Wir waren vier 20jährige und haben den Aufenthalt sehr genossen. An amazing time in London.
Excellent host, apartment fully compliant with photographs, central location, close to paddington station. It was perfect. Thank you.
Here's the thing: Everything you read on the room's description is real, the pictures are real, everything is OK in that matter, BUT - This is really not the place you want to spend your vacation in, even when you want to save some good pounds...
This place is so shabby and depressing, sorry to say. The mattress is soooo old, you can feel the springs popping out, and it gives you a back ache... Couldn't they spare some money and buy a new one? The staircase and door at the top floor, where the room located, is so dirty, everything is so depressing... The closet that you see in the pics, its there alright, but it nearly falls apart if you just touch it... The host, Edom, who is a cousin of the owner, was very nice and friendly, but was late 30 minutes after the time of arrival. The phone number that is published here - we called it a few times but it was shut down, went to a message box. We were convinced we were robbed.
Although we paid for a week in advance and there are no refunds, we decided to leave 2 days before and check into a decent hotel - these is a vacation, after all, and the h*ll with the money we lost for a couple of nights.
The bottom line - if your'e there for a vacation - don't stay here. Too depressing and shabby. Sorry.
La ubicacion es buena,practicamente en el centro de Londres.El apartamento es para 2 personas como maximo y la cocina no tiene visibilidad para cocinar.El lavabo es muy pequeño y las cañerias olian mal,el apartamento no estaba sucio,pero no invitaba a permanecer en el ya que estaba muy descuidado.Idem;la persona que nos recibio es amable y soluciono nuestras demandas.
Edom (cousin of Jean) met us at the apartment and was very friendly and helpful. We are a family of 4 and we stayed here for 8 nights and even though the apartment was not too large it was adequate enough for us with a bit of juggling around at nighttime with bags. The sofa bed was comfortable. Having the bathroom downstairs was no problem and it was completely our bathroom (no sharing with anyone else). There is a button just outside the door to push to turn on the hall light.
We were able to cook all our meals in the apartment and had access to the washing machine which was really helpful.
The apartment is in a great location to the main metro station and Hyde park is nice and close for the kids to run off some of their energy. We were able to walk to most of the main sites and also to main shopping streets (Oxford/Regent Streets) but then we don't mind walking. Bus stop is also just outside the door and this works out cheaper but slower for getting around.
So all in all, an enjoyable stay!
