Hi everyone, I'm an expat living in London! I'm looking forward to enjoying the airbnb experience and meeting new people.
Perfect apartment, great location, walked everywhere and fantastic host. Must stay.
The flat is just lovely, and it couldn't be more central and convenient. Though I didn't get to meet Laura in person, she went above and beyond the call of duty to accomodate my schedule, and made check in and check out as easy as possible. I'd definitely stay here again given the opportunity.
I had a fantastic time in London, a lot thanks to Laura's apartment. Everything was just perfect; a comfortable bed, fully equipped kitchen including all that you need, and the flat is also very clean and stylish/modern. I absolutely loved the area; it's i the middle of the city but still it's totally quite inside the apartment. The street is beautiful with lovely old buildings, lots of nice trendy boutiques, and good restaurants everywhere. The best place to be if you like shopping and dining! I can highly recommend this place. In addition, Laura is a very nice person who's easy to communicate with. Thanks a lot Laura!
There aren’t enough words to describe what a great stay we had! Laura’s place was perfect in every way. Her photos and description are to a “t”. The location is ideal in St. Christopher’s Place and near Bond Street Tube. The accommodation was perfect for two. Laura is a gracious host and we were absolutely delighted with her place. We wished we could have met her, but her friend Traci was a brilliant local contact. Laura took care of every detail. We were very pleased.
We were very happy happy to stay in Laura appartment during the olympic games. It was perfect to be in Notting Hill and it was easy to get to the olympic parc. We enjoyed our stay a lot!!!
Laura was greatl, location was amazing, would come back!
Laura's place was great. Just as advertised: very quiet and cozy, great location just a few blocks from the Notting Hill Gate tube stop, clean, and modern. The only issue we had was that her shower unexpectedly broke down shortly before we got there, so we were unable to use it until the last day of our stay, but we had her super nice and sleek bathtub to use so it wasn't much of an inconvenience at all. She was very apologetic about it. The room was very cozy and comfortable and the main living space was very nice.
She was also a great host. She was there to greet us and made us feel very comfortable and at home. She also gave us good recommendations on nearby restaurants, which we tried and loved. She made herself scarce, which wasn't necessary but it made us feel like we had the place to ourselves. It was a great first airbnb experience and I would recommend her place to anyone in a heartbeat.
Best host ever! Laura's place has become our home away from home as we travel to London throughout 2012 for work-related training. Couldn't ask for a better hostess!
Laura's apartment is in a great location, it's modern, and nicely furnished. Also very handy to buses and the tube. There's restaurants and shops just around the corner. Kensington Palace and Portobello Road market, are also just a short walk away. We enjoyed staying here, we didn't see Laura too often, but it was nice having a bit of space to ourselves.
Laura is very friendly and chatty, and a great host. She knows London well, and offers good advice, if you need to know anything, just ask!
Nice spot in Notting Hill conveniently located near bus and the underground - the hosts are very nice and extremely helpful. Perfect to explore London.
I stayed at Laura's with Oxana and it's even hard to explain with the words what an amazing experience it was!
I liked talking to Laura, I liked the interesting layout of the apartments, I liked the location, the bed we slept on (and we all know how important it is), I liked the atmosphere at Laura's, the amazing smell of candles and cool little pictures on the walls from all over the world. If it would have been possible I would love to stay and live with Laura :) She's a very cool person, we talked about lots of things and though she says she's an expact, she gave us information about great places to go.
Thank you, Laura!
I've known Laura since 2002 when she started working with me at Kraft Foods in the New York. She's a totally detail-oriented, trustworthy individual -- if she claims she stocks the freshest HP Sauce in all of London, like straight out of the factory, you better believe it! She's also very in-the-know about all the best spots, so if you're visiting London for the first time, she'll steer you in the right direction. But what are you doing reading this review? Did you see the in-floor bathtub she's sporting? I mean, I wouldn't even leave the apartment if I could take a bath without having to so much as raise my leg.
I have known Laura for years and she is one of the most reliable, considerate, and responsible individuals I know. Her flat in London is gorgeous - lots of sunlight, modern and new furniture, and is in one of my favorite parts of London. I highly recommend Laura as a host and I definitely recommend her apartment as an ideal set up for a short-term visitor.
