I am a well travelled, hard working entrepreneur, until the day comes when I can retire in a pad walking distance to a nice surfing spot. For now I am your key to our great city of London.

I really liked the apartment. It had every that I needed. It was cozy and comfortable. The location is amazing. Although it was Soho on a major street, it wasn't that loud and didn't bother me.
I didn't get a chance to meet Arial as was traveling, but he was very responsive and helpful. The key pick was easy to do from a locker nearby.
The listing was accurate, with the very minor exceptions of the couch being black instead of white, and a different painting/image on the wall.
The neighborhood is Soho, which is great and can't be beat for going out in the evening.
The place was almost perfect, with the small exception of the mattress being a bit too soft for my taste. I'm a bit heavy and I would tend to sink in -- not a deal breaker though and I would still highly recommend it.
Sam, many thanks for a great review.
Comfortable quiet flat in a good location. I know the area well so had all the knowledge I needed thus did not have to trouble Ariel for any further information. The flat is on the third floor with no lift so you need to be ok with stairs. Perfect for 2 people sharing the one bedroom. Good buses and tubes within walking distance, Covent Garden a brisk 30 minute walk. Would book this flat again.
Anthony, many thanks for your review.
What Anthony loved about your listing:
Very quiet street no traffic noise.
Appartement très confortable et très bien situé dans Soho. Contact facile et pro.
Jean Brieuc merci beaucoup !
I stayed at Ariel's place in Soho for 2 weeks during a work trip. It was perfect!
The flat is clean, well maintained, nice furniture.
The neighborhood is filled with nice restaurants and bars.
Ariel was very kind and always available if I needed anything.
I knew it would be noisy at night, so I got earplugs and was able to sleep very well.
7-8 min walk to Oxford Circus... Close to Trafalgar Square, Covent Garden, the Thames.
30 seconds to grocery store, liquor store, etc.
Really recommend it!
Benjamin, many thanks for your great review and long stay. Hope to see you back soon.
I stayed at Ariel's flat for almost 3 weeks. Because of the length of my stay, I wanted to be really sure that it would meet my needs. Ariel was very responsive to my many questions before booking and accommodated my early check-in needs.
The flat is as nice as it looks in the photos. There are a few little quirky things, but that is probably just from my American view. The neighborhood is fabulous and perfect for anyone who wants to be right in the midst of the things. It can be noisy on weekend nights, but for me that's just like home.
Note that the gym listed in the amenities section refers to a separate city-run gym that is about 3 blocks away. It is very nice and cheap for short-term passes.
For anyone travelling with lots of luggage - this is a 2.5 flight walk-up, so plan accordingly.
Trina, many thanks.
the place is very central,
had some issues with getting the keys because we got late check in.
the bed was too soft for us.
there is a lot of noise at night.
Thanks for your review. You are the first to mention the "softness" of the bed. The previous guests loved it! Keys are easily accessible 24/7. This is central London after all ! Everything is in the palms of your hand including some noise.
Great studio apartment in an excellent location surrounded by good food, we had no problem finding places to eat even when it was getting late! Apartment had all the amenities we needed, bed was comfortable and heating was good. Location was perfect and within walking distance to many tube stations, and as we enjoyed walking, we could even walk to Trafalgar Square and London Eye. Ariel was prompt and clear in his replies as well. Special thanks to Diana, whom we contacted during our stay and helped us with our queries! Highly recommended and will stay again! (:
The apartment was good enough for our family of four. The kitchen was excellent, along with a recently updated bathroom as well.The location was also optimal, with easy access to the nearby tube stations which were only a couple of stations away from central London.
Many thanks for a great review.
Great location, short walk to grocery store and restaurants all around. Host was very responsive.
Many thanks. Enjoyed having you.
Great location and very professional host.
Only issue with the property is that the building is right beside a building contractor so quite a few workmen, lorries and equipment coming and going first thing in the morning.
Quinton, many thanks. The construction will end by mid Januray but the great news that you failed to mention is that it is a very quiet side street with no noise whatsoever after 430pm.
Michael is a foreign visitor He stayed for a week and seemed to be comfortable with the accommodations. He did a lot of traveling on some of the back roads to check them out before he went cycling. He also found public pools in both Healdsburg and Santa Rosa because he swam everyday.
We hope he got to fully explore all that Sonoma County has to offer!
Barbara is friendly and welcoming. It was a full house but we somehow managed not to step on each others toes.
[This review is for Ariel's father Michael.] It was a pleasure to host Michael -- he has a charming and affable presence, and was a very gracious guest. We would happily welcome him back to our home any time, and will hopefully get to be his airbnb guests in London or the Riviera someday.
Pauline and Dave, so gracious of you and what a wonderful review. Hope that we can meet someday soon. Stay in touch! Best, Michael
