Hi, I'm an academic & love to travel. Something I like about hosting people on Air BnB is getting to meet people from all over the world.
Great location - convenient to Piccadilly Line for travel to/from Heathrow and elsewhere; good underground & bus service wherever we wanted to go. We found the Calthorpe Arms pub a block away - great food and the nicest staff & customers in the world! The apartment itself, while perfectly sufficient for our needs, didn't quite deserve the word "gorgeous" in my opinion; decor & art on the monotone side. The second person in or out of the bed must climb over the foot!
The studio is fantastic, it is in an excellent position, very close to the underground, shopping centre, nice restaurants, British Museum, and nice walking distance from Convent Garden. The owner is very kind, communication with her was extremely easy both before arriving to London and during my permanence in the studio. I enjoyed very much my staying in the studio and I strongly recommend it.
A real design treasure in the heart of London. Lovers of Deco will hugely enjoy this beautifully original living space and the warm welcome of the owner. Views to die for across the city and everything you ever want within easy walking distance.
very comfortable and truly memorable.
This flat was a lovely space to spend a month in London. It was comfortable to work in as well as an amazing location from which to visit the city. Clean and quiet building, lots of natural light, a kitchen with all the essentials, and superb decor. I would easily stay here again.
I was very happy in this apartment-- it was a lovely little "home away from home" for me over a Christmas holiday. I had plenty of space to make myself at home, the bed was comfy, I loved the flat's vintage character, and it was a great convenience to have a washer and dryer in the flat. The view is fun to photograph, taking in the street below with the Gherkin and financial district in the distance. I was quite content to stay in the flat on Christmas day and on rainy mornings, and still in a week saw five plays, visited four museums, saw street performers in Covent Garden, browsed designer shops in the theatre district, and had my tarot cards read in Neal's Yard, The bus and tube are close by, and as a woman traveling alone, I felt safe walking around this area or traversing the few blocks from the nearest tube station after dark. Andrea was an excellent host; on the day I arrived she showed me around the neighborhood, and her online guide to the area's restaurants and shops, with walking/driving directions, is first-rate.
Thanks Andrea for enhancing my first visit to London. The apartment is ideally situated - an easy walk to Russell Square or Kings Cross tube stations. We really enjoyed the extremely comfy bed, and waking up to magnificent city views every morning. The sunrises were amazing.
We appreciated having a separate, well equipped kitchen, and there was plenty of storage space to enable us to spread out.
Andrea was excellent with the communication, and was very obliging.
Great flat in a great location! I could not have wanted more during my week-long visit to London. Thanks, Andrea.
It was wonderful to come "home" to Andrea's flat each day. We had everything we needed: a comfortable bed, the kitchen equipped for breakfast in and snacks, and a location that couldn't be beat. The view at sunset and the proximity to transport - plus the unexpected wonders of the neighborhood itself! - made this the perfect place for our London stay. Our hostess provided all the information we needed to make ourselves feel welcome. We truly loved our stay.
In general, I would recommend this place to everybody. It is a very nice studio, clean and very well located. We loved the art-deco style and the bed was also comfortable.
The nearest tube station is only 5 minutes away and it is only a 10 minute walk from the St. Pancras. Even better, across the street you can take a public bike for only 2£ per 24h.
Unfortunately we did not had the opportunity to meet the host, but she did everything she could to help us and she texted me several times to check everything was ok.
Next time, I'll definitely stay here again.
After searching through lots of tiny, poorly rated hotels in London, we turned to Airbnb for our trip. We chose Andrea's flat, and we are very glad that we did.
The flat is close to the Russel Square and Kings Cross tube/train stations, plus the #17 bus goes straight to St. Paul's Cathedral and London Bridge. It's also conveniently located close to several grocery stores and other necessities.
Andrea was very responsive to our emails, including when our flights were delayed and we were searching for other options to acquire our keys.
The flat was clean when we arrived, and the amenities were as described. We made good use of the kitchen and laundry facilities, and after a long day of exploring London the bed was fantastic!
Andrea was a wonderful guest. She was quiet, clean, and respectful of house rules. Five stars!
Andrea was a fantastic guest. The room was as clean as when she arrived on the day she left. We also had a really interesting conversation when she came in. I wouldn't hesitate to have her back!!
Andrea seemed very friendly and smiling.
Organized and frankly, seemed to have enjoyed their stay in Rio de Janeiro.
She talked about her photo exhibition.
I was sick in the days when she was here.
Left the House spotless.
I hope to come back and have another chance to have a connection.
Andrea é muito simpática. Muito educada também.Uma pessoa de convivência tranquila e agradável. Dessas que quando se conhece parece que somos amigos desde sempre.
Andrea is very friendly. Very polite person also. A person peaceful coexistence and enjoyable. Those who seem to know when we're friends forever.
Andrea was great and easy to communicate from the very first contact.I didn't get to meet Andrea but,met her husband Ian and the kids and they were very nice so I'm sure Andrea is a lovely person.
The condo was nicely maintained with everything in order and for a family it was left very neat.
I would recommend Andrea to other hosts without hesitation !
Andrea is the nicest guest to have and showed herself over-respectful of my house. I'll welcome her anytime again!
I instantly liked Andrea when I met her. Friendly and uncomplicated, she took good care of the apartment, was very respectful of the property and left it spotlessly clean when she left. I have no reservations to recommend her to any future hosts !
Very friendly, open-minded person, positive energy!
Very nice to meet Andrea, although she was quite busy, we got to chat a little in the mornings and evenings.
Clean, responsible guest, always welcome to stay again.
Andrea and her children are very nice. Andrea is a professional aribnb host. She rents her apartment in London and it's been a pleasure to share our experiences about airbnb guests. Now, having her family in my apartment in Budapest, I claim that she is also a perfect guest other than a host!
