View of Parliament, Big Ben and the London Eye from Lambeth Bridge (2 minutes walk from the house)
We had a perfect stay at Dario's, nothing to complain about. Great location and a very clean place, overall a much better deal than any hotel in the area.
Wir waren begeistert! Die Wohnung von Dario ist genau wie auf den Bildern: sauber, gemütlich, modern - man fühlt sich sofort wie zu Hause. Handtücher, Bettzeug, Fön, ... das erste Frühstück - alles war da! Dario ist ein toller Gastgeber - sehr freundlich und hilfsbereit. Bus und Bahnen befinden sich in unmittelbarer Nähe, aber auch zu Fuss kann man in ca. 30 Minuten zum Oxford Circus laufen und dabei zahlreiche Sehenswürdigkeiten bestaunen! Die Themse ist unweit zu der Wohnung und lädt zu einem Spaziergang mit Blick auf den Big Ben ein. Wir empfehlen die Wohnung wärmstens weiter und kommen gerne wieder!
Dario's apartment is great!! We had a fantastic weekend in London! The flat is very clean, comfortable and very good located. Dario was a great host. He was very flexible with arrival and departure times, which helps having a great stay. We highly recommend the place. We felt like home. Thank You Dario - we will come back.
Thank you Dario!
The checkin and checkout procedure (including how to get the keys) was really easy and convient. Your appartment is a good place for 1 or 2 people to start exploring London. It is less than 5 minutes walk to be at the river Thames and to enjoy the beautiful view. For such a central location, the noise level is quite low, so no problem to have a good sleep.
Dario's flat was absolutely wonderful! It is very clean and well appointed - dishes, towels, bed linen, basic kitchen supplies, etc. The location was perfect with bus stops just around the corner in front of Lambeth Palace, and Waterloo Station (trains and underground) is only a 15 minute walk down the South Bank. Also, you can easily catch a taxi in front of the Novotel. Dario was a great host, checking in on us the first night and was easily available for a few quick questions. Would definitely recommend!
Agradabilíssima a hospedagem. Apartamento bonito, confortável e em localização tranquila. O metro de Londres não é tão bom quanto o de Paris, assim, a estação mais perto ficava a 600m. Mas pra nós brasileiros, que em geral não dispomos de metrô, bom demais. Risos. O Dario é supersimpático e eficiente como anfitrião. Pretendemos retornar
Dario's apartment is exactly as presented - cozy, well cared for, and comfortable. Pictures are accurate.
Did not have much contact with Dario (my choice), but all the interactions I had with him indicated a kind, very nice man. coordination was effortless.
Location of the apartment is great. Very nice and safe neighborhood, public transportation is readily available, shops are close by.
All in all, a great stay. I heartily recommend it to any single/couple looking for a nice place in London.
Thank you very much Dario! We had a great stay in the apartment of Old Paradise. It is well located, quiet and pleasant, very well equipped if you want to have diner at home. A very good experience that we really recommend with enthusiasm. Dario was a very attentive host, made sure we lacked nothing and accompanied us during our ride to the subway station. I will come back with pleasure in this place!
Dario is very kind. He welcomed me and explained what there are near his house so I stayed more good. And his house is fantastic. Clean, nice. The interior made me peaceful when I got exhausted with travel. And The location is perfect to people like walking. Also there are bus stops near the house. I think his house is perfect for everyone. If I visit london again, I choose his house again!
Excellent apartment, looked as advertised. It is about 10-15 min. walk from the closest underground station, so you will spend some time walking (as you do in London!).
The apartment itself is furnished nicely, with high-speed internet. A location to recommend!
Wow - we had the best time in this apartment. Dario had contacted us a week prior to our check-in date with all the information we would need - the passcode to get our keys from the lockbox (he could not meet us, as we would be arriving during his work day), the internet password, how to use the TV, etc. We got in with no problem, and the flat is BEAUTIFUL. It has so much room to spread out and get comfortable. The bed was comfy, there was excellent lighting everywhere, the kitchen was huge, the TV worked well and we really enjoyed watching British quiz shows each night before we went to sleep. The tub is huge and was pleasant to shower in. The wifi was fast and had a very good connection - which was handy for all of our trip planning! We carried on luggage from the US for a two week trip, so we did laundry twice here - the washing machine worked great and we dried our clothes on the clothes dryer that was stowed under the couch.
Dario also had many travel guides and brochures available to page through, along with cards for car services, tube maps, power adapters, etc.
The flat is located just south of the Thames, and walking to Parliament/Big Ben is 15 minutes, tops - with great cityscape views the whole time! Trafalgar Square is just past that and probably would have taken 25 minutes, if we hadn't kept stopping to gape at everything. The nearest tube stop is a 10-15 minute walk, but there are probably six or seven bus lines you can pick up a block or two away.
Dario came by the first evening we had arrived to bring extra toilet paper and handsoap and make sure we were comfortable, and he gave us some travel advice, both for just getting around town and getting back to the airport when we had to leave to come home.
The lift in the building is great and it was wonderful to not have to walk up five flights of stairs (which is what we did in our last flat rental).
I have nothing negative to say about this place at all. It was well-decorated, everything worked great, Dario was a pleasure to work with, the location is so close to all the main sites but far from tourists (which is nice after being surrounded by them all day :) and we were very comfortable here. Definitely recommended!
We had a good stay at Dario's flat. Though rather small sized, the flat was clean, cozy and quiet, and allowed easy accommodation for 3 people (one stayed in the bedroom, and two shared the living room with two beds. The location is good, crossing Lambeth bridge gets you to Westminster and downtown. Lambeth North and Vauxhall tube stations are within 10 mins walking distance, and it's very easy to hail a cab close to the flat (very useful if you need to catch an early flight out when the tube's not running yet). There is no wireless internet, nor land line in the apartment, which would have added to the flat.
I took a chance on Dario as his place had not been reviewed. Boy, am I glad i did. SPecifically, Dario was a great host and a great guy. More importantly his apartment was VERY central and as shown in the pictures. No disappointments here.
