Brian was always very polite in your communications, but did not get to meet him personally. Instead, we were greeted by Chris, who was always very friendly and helpful. We had a little trouble the first day, but Chris was very active to resolve it. The apartment is nice, and has everything you need. The location is excellent, close to everything.
This is a brilliant flat, conveniently located to theatres, shopping, restaurants, Tube stops, and walking distance to points of interest. It is extremely close to Monmouth Coffee -- the best coffee and croissants we found in London. Also close to Neal's Dairy for an amazing choice of cheeses. Brian responded quickly and communicated effectively. Flat was clean and things were in working order. We appreciated being able to make breakfast and a dinner. The kitchen is stocked with dishes and cooking items to make it easy to prepare meals. The washer/dryer is handy. A suggestion: the flat is right above a pub so if you're a light sleeper or aren't used to noise at night like me, you might bring earplugs.
lovely staying in Covent Garden and Brian very correct and helpful
Brian is ah excellent host. My plane arrived pretty early to London and he even left work to come and give me the keys to the apartment and show me around. Very communicative and helpful.
I'll definitely repeat next time.
Brian's Covent Garden flat was the perfect place for our 5-day stay in London!
First, Brian was a terrific and communicative host. He responded to my various questions promptly. Once we arrived in London we communicated via text and he was wonderful.
We had no issues with the flat. It was very comfortable and just as described in the Air BNB profile. The location couldn't be better! A wonderful cafe next door, shops, pubs and restaurants within steps! It was a ver lively area but not noisy. We slept wonderfully each night!
Access to the Tube was a block away and travel to and from Heathrow couldn't have been easier.
The building was clean, safe and secure as was the neighborhood.
There were only two major things I would make people aware of: There is a lack of electrical outlets. With cell phones, tablets and hair dryers, we had to get a little creative. It was very workable but something to be aware of. Aslo, the shower water pressure left something to be desired. It was not strong and the flow seemed to change quite frequently during a single shower. However, these things were merely small nuisances and did not take away from our wonderful stay.
I would also caution that although the description sleeps 4, it might be a bit tight for 4 adults as there is only 1 bathroom and limited space for luggage, etc.
All in all, I would not hesitate to recommend this flat and Brian for anyone visiting London!!
Brian was excellent in every way possible as a host . Very prompt and polite communication over the phone.
The appartment is in fantastic location, and we enjoyed the little book/notes with helpful suggestions of things to see and do in the area.
Very good value for our money .
Brian and Chris were excellent hosts, with great communication and an excellent place. Top value is to the location as you are not only close to the Piccadilly tube but also quite close to Leister square and even Tottenham Court road. We were there for a week, bought a week long tube pass and were able to go everywhere.
The house has 2 nice bedrooms but we were able to also open up the living room couch for my 6'2" son so we were able to pack in a good size crowd. Last thing, the TV/Wifi were excellent. For Americans it feels a bit on the pricey side but you have to keep in mind a) this is London and b) the location is really worth the extra expense. Would definitely use again.
The apartment is perfectly located , bright and cheerful . We had a very good time staying there . Even though we were not able to meet Brian during our stay, we were very much in touch via emails. He has been very responsive to all our queries and was most helpful. Wonderful host.
Brian apartment is very nice. Grate great location, Covent garden close to SOHO. We were 2 adults and 2 children and the apartment was very convenient. We did not meet Brian however the communication with him by email was very good and he was very nice. We found the apartment clean and ready for us.
