Philippa and Jakob are great people and have been perfect hosts to my boyfried and me in April 2013. They were extremely welcoming, gave us tons of useful tips and we also had some good talks. Their flat is really nice and Shoreditch a really good location to start your discovery of London from. Thanks a lot! :-)
We have been stayed at Jakob's and Philippa's house for one week. House is not very big, but very comfortable, cosy and has a nice garden. It was our first experiance of using airbnb, and we happy that we chose Philippa and Jakob! Now we have pleasant memories about London and friendly people living there.
The house was lovely. We had a great time in London. Both Philippa and Jakob are really nice and the room was cosy and clean. Strongly recommended.
The room as well as the house is clean, quite and lovely furnished. We felt more than welcome and enjoyed our stay from the first minute. Philippa and Jakob are very nice people who care about your stay. The house is in a perfect position to discover all sides of London. Good bars, shops, markets, busstops etc. are in walking distance. Absolutely recommendable to everyone!!
We had a very nice stay at Jakob's and Philippa's house. The neighborhood is very vibrant and there are a lot of lovely shops, restaurants and bars in walking distance.
The room is comfortable and clean, inside the house it's very quiet, with a good atmosphere.
Philippa and Jakob are amazing hosts! I had just arrived in London with a friend of mine, we decided to move here from Canada. As soon as our plane landed, we headed right to Philippa and Jakob's home. Jakob welcomed us at the door and was nothing but friendly to the both of us. He provided us newcomers with valuable knowledge on where to look for housing, which restaurants to eat at and how to navigate throughout the city. He's a great man and we owe him many thanks!
Philippa is a very sweet and kind woman. Thanks to her, we found the best Indian cuisine in the area and have probably each gained about 5 kilos because of it :-)
I HIGHLY recommend this accommodation for anyone who chooses to visit London. The cost is great. the location is AMAZING and the hosts are just the icing on the cake.
Many thanks to the both of you. We'll never forget how hospitable you were towards these two wandering Canadians :-)
Very clean, quiet and convenient. Would fully recommend to anyone.
I've been the guest of Philippa and Jakob for two weeks. They have been really nice and made me feel welcome in the giant city that is London. Both are really great to talk to and will answer local trivia or help point in the right direction if you are looking for some place.
The flat is a bit on the small size (then again, this is London), but very cozy. It is within easy walking distance to the City, Shoreditch or Brick Lane. Internet connection (WiFi) is available, and worked without hiccup all my stay. A big plus (at least for my unprepared central european self) was an euro to uk plug converter in the guest room.
All in all, would gladly visit again!
We had a great time at Philippa and Jakob's flat. The room was really cozy, clean and has a comfortable bed. Internet was free and worked perfectly. We didn't see our hosts very often as we were out a lot, but they're extremely nice and welcoming.
The area around the flat is quiet and nice but still it's close to Shoreditch and Brick Lane area. We're coming back for sure!
I can highly recommend Philippa and Jakob and their Bright Garden Flat. The flat is tidy, with a very nice garden a step away through the sitting room (certainly good for the summer). Philippa and Jakob are very friendly and helpful, with lots of advice on the local attractions if you need it. The flat is on a quiet side street, about 10-15 min walk from Old St tube station or - even better - a hop and a skip away from a Boris (Barclay's) Bike rental point. (These cheap and cheerful bikes are the way to get around central London by the way, not the dark dreary tunnels of the wretched Underground.) The area is a nice mix of old and new East London, with a good mix of eating and drinking places nearby.
Philippa and her father stayed over for three nights.
Extremely nice and friendly people.
They were great guests and left the house in perfect order.
Hope to have them over again.
Very lovely people. I really enjoyed having them.
Great guest, easy, respectful and friendly. Thanks, hopefully see you again!
Philippa stayed at our place for 3 days in November 2012 for 4 days. She was kind, friendly and easy to cheat with. We found many common things to talk about. She was also clean, tidy and very quiet in her comings and goings. We'd love to host her again anytime and we strongly recommend Phillippa to anyone.
Friendly, charming and fun guests. Great communication and a pleasure to have in the house.
Great couple,amazingly (can you say that ) nice and sympathic !!!
They also came to my wife's restaurant and had good time.
It was a great pleasure to have them.
Jakob and Philippa were kind enough to open their home to me and my husband in the Fall of 2011, and we loved every minute of staying with them. Not only is their home bright, clean, airy and absolutely charming, but Jakob and Philippa were such wonderful hosts. They were extremely hospitable, helped us to navigate the streets of London, and really made us feel as though we had a home away from home. I can't wait until the next time!
The most comfortable room I've ever slept in. Excellent mattress. Super clean bathroom. Lovely couple. Great location. A must everytime I come to London.
