This is my first AirBnB experience, my friend and I were so lucky to have Astrid as our host, she is so warm-hearted and helpful. Our flight was delayed for nearly three hours, and she welcomed us as a lovely friend, showed us around and explained everything for us clearly, she also suggested some good cafes and restaurants. That really set a wonderful start for our trip!
We stayed at the apartment for a week, the apt is clean and equipped with everything we need. and the location is wonderful, we can take a comfortable work to most of the places, and if we want to take underground train, there are 2-3 stations around within 3-8 minutes walk. We really love this apartment, it feels more like home than an apartment. We will definitely come back next time!
The apartment is amazing and exatally like pictures, so you have everything you need for a short or long stay. Very cozy! It is in the very city center, you have tube and lots of buses to get you everywhere you need in few minutes. Just 15 min walk to Oxford St and 10 min to British Museum. Charlotte St is less than 5 min walk and you have great options to eat! Just a few steps you have supermarkets, cafés, pubs, restaurants... but at same time you are in a quite street for a good night sleep!
I had a perfect time and felt like home since the first day. Astrid was an amazing host and friend, was always ready to help me with everything I need. Be sure you have no place better than there, I spent 1 month and it was fantastic! Thanks Astrid for taking care of me during this time! :)
Nous avons passé un excellent séjour dans l' appartement "vie de Bohème"!
Nous n'avons pas vu Astrid sur place car elle était en voyage, mais la préparation pour notre arrivée a été très efficace et chaleureuse . Nous avons reçu les plans , les guides de fonctionnement de l'appartement , du métro proche... Nous avons pu nous contacter très facilement et rapidement par mail et par skype
Astrid a été une interlocutrice charmante et très soucieuse de notre bien-être dans son appartement:
Celui-ci est vraiment agréable , disposant de tout ce dont nous avons besoin, "comme à la maison", situé dans une impasse très calme , prêt de la station de métro de Warren street, ce qui permet de circuler très rapidement dans Londres
Pour nous, ce fut parfait ; nous remercions Astrid et recommandons vivement cette location .
La Vie De Bohème chez Astrid est comme de vivre sur un petit nuage au Paradis!
Elle est une hôtesse merveilleuse: elle nous a fait découvrir son quartier, nous a montré tous les points stratégiques du coin et est super arrangeante quand aux horaires d'arrivée et de départ .
Son appartement est idéalement situé par rapport aux transports (métro et bus) qui permettent d'aller au cœur de Londres.
Très propre et très calme, je recommande la Vie De Bohème à tous les globes trotters (Astrid est aussi une grande voyageuse)
We met Astrid upon arrival, she showed us around the Fitzrovia area and answerd all of our questions about distance to this and that :)
The apartment is lovely in each and every way so personal and cozy which I really appriciated being a General Manager of a 4* Luxury Hotel in Iceland. Basically we were looking for something totally different from Design/Boutique Hotel which this apartment is!
One of the best thing is the bathtub, picture coming home after long day of sightseeing or shopping your feet are sore and your body is about to go to give up and go to Spain. Just to have the opportunity to take a long extremely cozy bath before go to sleep is priceless.
We stayed one week (7 nights) and obviously we didnt use the kitchen facilites as we prefered to dine out every night. But all the utensils were there.
Living room is small but nice, table with 3 chairs and CD player with many different Cd´s around (We got a fantastic flashback by listening to "Fugees" cd which we found)
Astrid as a host is a dream in a way. Her open personality and passion for art and life in general is something that I dont have strong enough adjectives for. She was so helpful (gave us Oyster cards, maps of the area even offered us tea!) Flexible check in/check out was not a problem as our flight departured at 21:00 - so we kept our luggage in the apartment. When we left she rang and ordered taxi for us to Victoria Station (not the black expenisve one´s).
Overall absolutely fantastic stay, great hostess, lovely atmosphere, best possible location and fair price! I would definitely stay there again no doubt about it and can highly recommand this to anyone who prefer the same as us.
Lastly, Astrid thank you for a wonderful stay - you inspired us and I can say with full confident that you are genuine and good hearted person. We love you it is as simple as that :)
Great apartment, fantastic location 10 min walk to Oxford Street, 15 min walk to Soho/Chinatown. Easy access to Warren St tube line (Victoria Line and Northern line) approximately 3 min walk.
We very much enjoyed our time at Astrid's. The apartment was convenient and cosy and had everything we needed. The street was very quiet for such a central location. Being so close to the tube was great! Unfortunately we didn't have the opportunity to meet Astrid in person but the online communication was great, as well as the notes and maps left for us in the apartment. We definitely recommend this apartment to anyone looking for a comfortable and conveniently located base to explore London. Thanks so much Astrid for welcoming us into your home!
La experiencia con la anfitriona fue excelente.Antes del viaje nos contactamos con Astrid y nos orientó acerca no solo de las comodidades de su hogar, sino tambien acerca de medios de transporte y lugares que podiamos conocer en Londres. Se ocupo de que no tuviéramos inconveniente en llegar a su casa, y de que un vecino nos entregara las llaves, ya que ella no podia hacerlo en el horario de nuestra llegada.El apartamento tenía todas las comodidades necesarias, y cumplió con la descripcion ofrecida en la página.El vecindario es tranquilo, y la ubicacion es excelente, ya que nos permitió acceder a lugares de interés caminando y con todos los medios de transporte a 200 metros de distancia.Muy recomendable.
I stayed at Astrid's app for 6 days. We emailed sometime before my arrival and she gave me all info I needed. She was so welcoming and on arrival showed me around the flat and even a small tour round the area.
The flat is in a lovely and safe area, and as a single traveller a great place to stay. 1-2 min walk to cosy coffeshops, tubestations (warren str and great portland str stations),shops and pubs. You could choose to walk downtown which doesn't take long. A 5 min walk to lovely Regents prk. Just grab a coffee on the way and relax.
The flat itself had everything you would need, working wifi in all rooms, enough hot water for a bath and more. Washingmachine was easily managed. A quiet street and no noise from neighbours. Some buildingwork going on next door, but I was aware of it before I got there. Didn't bother me as I was out all day anyway.
She lives on the 3rd floor, but no problem climbing the stairs.
Astrid is a warm and friendly person, I would recommend her and her flat to anyone. I would definately rent this place again!
Our stay at Astrid's flat was fantastic. It's lovely, artsy, and comfortable (and is so close to the Tube station!) The location was ideal for us, and central to everything. Astrid was so nice, helpful and accommodating. She went out of her way to give us the lay of the land and helpful hints when we arrived. There are places to eat and buy groceries in close proximity, as well as several pubs. I hope we can come back sometime soon.
To be honest we would love to give a bad review so that the flat would be free if we want to come back, but we can´t do this as it was a really good decision to book this flat. The flat is really cute and fully furnished so that we didn´t miss a thing. It is really central so that we could reach nearly everything by walking, even when the public transport was out of order on Christmas-day we had no problems as we could walk around without problems. The area is really nice as a lot of shopping-possibilities are around (Tesco, Sainsburry-s, Boots, Currys PC and a lot of restaurants) and it´s just a 10-14 minutes walk to Oxford Street and just 2 Minutes to the next tube-station.
Astrid herself was really friendly - she contacted us in advance and sent us necessary informations about problems with the public transport so that we were totally prepaired when we arrived. Also she introduced us in everything that´s important about the flat and gave us several information about her area, shopping-possibilities, fun-possibilities etc.
She was so kind and really helpful!!!
We can just recommend the flat and Astrid as for us it was a very good choice. We are sure that we will ask Astrid again when we are going to heading back to London next time.
She is very nice,friendly and cozy.Hightly recommend !
It was really nice to meet Astrid: warm, friendly, hardworking, loving Vietnam. She is welcome any time
Astrid was a great guest. Very friendly and understanding. I highly recommend her!
Astrid is a professional photographer. Astrid had a artist look and style. Astrid calm and kind. We like your style and enjoy your stay.
Thank you for choosing me as your host. During the last 2 weeks, i feel very comfortable with her staying. And whenever she want to solve problems she used gentle and nice words to ask. Sometimes, we go for a dinner and we share things about life. She is just like my friends when i need help. She is a pure artist, photographer who want to share her passion in Vietnam. It's great to meet you again one day Astrid :)
It was lucky to welcome a lovely guest like her. We had a lot good memories with our authentic life in my villa. I am sure she already would like back. Always welcome to her home sweet home away.
