I am originally from Paris, I am doing my masters here in fashion design specialized in womenswear. I am passionated about art, design and fashion.
The flat was nice and cosy and spotlessly cleaned. It is only a few minutes walk from King's Cross St. Pancras, so if you are travelling in and out of London from there, this would be a very good choice. I didn't get to experience the neighborhood.
Nous avons bien aimé le quartier et l'appartement de Lucie et l'accueil a été facile et sans complications. Néanmoins l'appartment n'est pas calme, car situé au premier étage dans une rue plutôt animée avec beaucoup de circulation même durant la nuit. Le fenêtres ne sont pas bien isolées et laissent passer tous les bruits des voitures, bus, ambulances et pietons qui passent. Autre point négatif, l'appartement n'avait été nettoyé que de façon superficielle. Le lit est super confortable avec un bon matelas, ce qui nous a fait oublier le bruit de la rue. En tout une bonne expérience pour quelqu'un qui est habitué au sonorités urbaines et qui n'est pas allergique à la poussière.
Lucie was very easy to communicate with to book the apartment, collect and return the keys.
Her apartment was fantastic too, right near Kings Cross with everything you could want for a couple of days in London, whether for business or pleasure. I would easily stay in her apartment again next time I go to London.
The only negative for some people might be the noise from the street, which may be bothersome for some at night as the apartment is only on the first floor. This is pretty standard for central London though and nothing that a pair of ear plugs can't fix.
Lucie's appartement is very well located for people coming with Eurostar trains and to discover London by feet. The neighbourhood is quite nice, and the noise coming from the street is not so loud.
I would definitely recommand this adress and stay here again.
Lucie's flat is exactly like it is in her pictures and very cosy. It's located near the centre of London. She was very helpful regarding both the arrival and the departure of her flat.
The apartment was great, full of light and well located,2 mins from King's Cross St. Pancras rail/tube station.
Location was exactly as described and as you can see from pictures. Ideal flat for a single or a young couple, you'll find everything you need in the apartment!
Dealing with host was fast and clear!
Would definitely stay here again!
The apartment is in an excellent location to move around, as buses, tube and trains are at 5' walk. The space is small but cosy, with lots of windows, and we were lucky to get very sunny days. Lucy made everything easy and was available for us in everything we needed. It was a great experience!
This was our first time renting an "apt" and first time using airbnb. After this experience with Lucie, we will never rent an apartment ever again.
First of all, it was very difficult to communicate with Lucie. We were still chasing after Lucie to find out where to locate the keys right before our flight departure. Second, we were not aware late arrival would be an issue as it is normally not for hotels, but we got complaints and attitudes from Lucie. Third, we are left with bad reviews with not cleaning the apartment where we were not informed in any shape or form!! Fourth, we closed the door as Lucie has instructed. However, now Lucie is complained about how we did not lock the door! "close" the door is very different than "LOCKED" the door!!!!
About the apartment - First of all, its very small and its located one story above the street. Not to say it was hot in the apartment (as there is no fan what so ever) it was so noisy. Location wise, it was close to the metro station.
After the experience, we were thinking not to write a bad review. We were just astonished to read about the review Lucie has left for us.
With that said, I would not recommend Lucie's apartment to anyone and personally we will never rent an "apt" ever again.
The location of the studio was the ideal one for those who want to be close to the London action or for those visiting London for first time. Lucie's studio is the ideal stay for a young couple or a single tourist. Allbeit small, it is cozy and decorated in a wonderful and unique way by Lucie which makes you feel like home. The flat is very sunny (with windows along the street side), simple and clean. Lucie is a wonderful host, very friendly and makes you feel home!
The apartment has a great location, nearby all public transportation and Lucy has made everything to make our trip easy. Thank You !
