Hi I'm from London, an architect, pretty easy going. I travel a lot and enjoy meeting new people.
Martha did a very good job at communicating with us about our stay. Not only did she explain her expectations and basic information about the house, but also gave us pointers for getting around and getting to know the neighborhood and London. The description does the place justice as it is bright and comfortable. It was a real pleasure for us to be able to stay there.
Had a wonderful stay, thank you! A really lovely place (with the most comfortable bed...), well located near London Fields. Martha was welcoming, helpful and friendly, and I was made to feel very much at home. Highly recommended!
We totally enjoyed our stay at Martha's place. Although she wasn't there for the two days we stayed in her flat, everything regarding coordination went perfectly well.
I really liked the area in Hackney with friendly people living around - we got to taste some real London flavor without many tourists being around, which was exactly what we were looking for.
The flat was exactly as in the picture - nice style and we were feeling comfortable from the very first second. Would definitely come back when visiting London again!
We had an almost perfect experience staying at Martha's amazing flat. What was perfect was the bed, the salon, the kitchen, the bathroom, the terrace, the piano, the location, and the warm welcome. But my wife and I live near Paris and are unused to such high ceilings. Also, Martha, despite being exceedingly cool, kind, brilliant and tasteful is all the same British. As my wife is French and I am American we both agreed that she speaks English far better than what we're accustomed to. So to conclude: Is this listing perfect? No, my wife and I agreed as we left Martha's place after having spent a life-changing three days. It is too perfect. Caveat Emptor!
Un tout grand merci à Martha pour son hospitalité et sa grande générosité! Ma mère et moi avons passé un magnifique séjour à Londres et dans ce bel appartement!
L'appartement est élégamment décoré et très bien situé, la chambre est belle et de bonne taille, tout est parfait!
Encore un tout grand merci!
Martha's place is the perfect base to relax after wandering the streets of London. The flat is stylish, quiet, just 1 minute walking distance from a bus stop and full of interesting books and paintings. It is actually much lovelier than the photos reveal. Martha provided us with useful information about the city and was a great company to be with.
Very nice stay, Martha really makes you feel like you were home, ensuring both warm welcome and discretion, and also providing very helpful suggestions about places to visit.
The flat is indeed lovely, even nicer than the listing description.
The neighborhood is just what we expected, quiet and well connected to both underground, train and buses.
Highly recommendable for couples!
It was really nice to met Martha, who shared with me a dinner on the day of my arrival and suggested me some nice local places. She was pretty busy I saw her most of the time during the morning and when she came back during the evening. It was nice to stay there.
Martha is a friendly host and the room and her flat are a very nice place to stay.
The room in Martha's beautiful apartment is a light, clean space. We had a great time exploring the interesting neighbourhoud and Martha herself is a warm host. We should certainly go back to this room when we visit London again.
Martha was a wonderful guest! she was very respectful of the space and we had a terrific time hosting her while she travelled:)
Martha was lovely, very kind and a pleasure to talk to.
I know Martha from work, a lovely generous friend. I originally intended to stay at her place for a week, but liked it so much that I ended up staying there for over a month. It is a very warm place, with a cool east london feel, amazing terrace for summer barbecues, clever, subtle detailing and AMAZING art pieces. Well connected by bus to central London, you will be a couple of blocks away from trendy Broadway Market and London Fields. Super recommended!
more that just to find a great accommodation in London (as Martha said it's a great quiet place close to lively area and great park) i met (too briefly though) a great person in Martha. She's really someone to get to know, and talk to. First to get to know the neighbourhood better, London and art incidently ;)
So i gladly recommand her place for a stay and get to know Martha.
