I now live in London after living in New York, Los Angeles, and Chicago. I enjoy travelling to as many destinations as possible.
Matt's flat was very clean and had all the amenities we could possibly need. Matt even left us an excellent bottle of wine! Great location too. Very close to train station and taxi stands. Tons of great bars and restaurants right outside the door! Loved the views from the flat and had fun people watching on to the street below. We stayed over the weekend, so there was a lot going on right out front on Old Street. Come Friday night here, people are ready to party! We loved it!
I was pleasantly surprised by the comfort of the bed and the fact that despite being on a busy road, we were not disturbed in the least. Matt's bedroom has great blackout shades and we had the fan running, so we heard nothing (and I'm even a light sleeper).
All in all, we had a fabulous time! I would recommend this flat to anyone and I will hope to stay there again someday.
Great centrally located apartment. Spacious and well equipped. Everything went really well. Would recommend to anyone wanting to be in the thick of it in Shoreditch. It's a little on the noisy side but that was not a problem for us having lived close to there for years we were acclimatized.
Matt was a fab host! Beautiful space, great open plan living area with super outlook over Old Street - fab location for transport, food, shopping - great for people watching.
The bedroom/bed was very comfortable.Matt was very kind to have left wine & beer for us arriving along with tea, coffee and was happy if we needed to use the washer/dryer.
We happened to be visiting on one of the hottest weeks for some time - having the wall of glass in the main living area did make this a bit uncomfortable until late in the evening even with the windows open. The internal bathroom was slightly unbareable at times due to the heat and no internal extractor fan. Matt had been kind enough to leave a fan in the living area and bedroom. I was aware the neighbour across the hall left there front door open to allow fresh air to flow through.
There is no getting away from the street, pub, restaurant noise, windows open or not. We enjoyed the bustle though I would imagine if travelling with young kids this would be difficult to put up with. Fri & Sat night were particularly noisy very late into the night. Again, this is expected when you consider the location and the flat is based directly above restaurants and bars.
All in all we really enjoyed our stay and would happily return.
We had two perfect days at Matts place in London. The apartment was really nice, perfect located and super clean and stylish.
Communication with Matt was easy and everything else was just better than we hoped it would be.
I would highly recommend this place for everybody and i will definitely book it again when I'm in London the next time.
Lovely guests! They left the apartment in perfect state!
I only got to meet Matt for 5 minutes at check-in due to having to catch my flight and never had the pleasure to meet his partner. Being abroad during his stay, he was very easy to deal with and only needed to contact me once. My friend handled their check-out and told me what lovely people they were and how clean the apartment was left. I didn't get to say goodbye so hope you both had a good stay! Definitely recommend these guests
i will highly recommend Matt, the communication is his best ! Very nice and clean guest
Matt was a fantastic guest. Communication prior to his arrival was easy and friendly and made me feel confident I was leaving my space in good hands. I arrived home to find my place amazingly tidy. It was as if no one stayed here while I was away. It's people like Matt who make me feel confident lending my space to others. He was also understanding of a slight snag which put me at ease during his stay. Thank you Matt, you are welcome back anytime!
Matt and his friend were perfect guests. They left the apartment very clean and tidy. All communication was easy and straight forward. I would recommend them to any host!
Matt and Sam are amazing hosts. I've known both of them for years - they are both very welcoming and fun to talk to. They have traveled just about everywhere, so if you need travel advice you will be talking to the right people (ask Matt about any city and he'll have something interesting to say). Sam is a talented designer, so every home they have ever lived in looks professionally done. They both have great taste and keep their home very clean and comfortable, making them ideal airbnb hosts.
