This was a great apartment located in a fantastic neighbourhood. It had everything I was looking for and would recommend it to anyone looking for an authentic London experience. Also, check out the coffee shop across the road - great breakfast!
I had an amazing stay at Santa's beautiful flat (Almost 3 weeks). It had all the style, charm and unique flavor you'd hope for on Airbnb. Decked out with lots of art and furniture to reflect Santa's designer aesthetic. You couldn't choose a hipper or more central location in East London. My main regret after 3 weeks was that I didn't leave the neighborhood enough (everything I needed was close by) Hip restaurants, bars, shops etc. The beds were extremely comfortable, Wi-Fi was strong, and the shower was hot. All I could really ask for. As mentioned in previous reviews, there does tend to be a bit of street noise (like much of London) and lots of personal effects . So bring earplugs if your a light sleeper, and just let Santa know if you need extra space. She was extremely communicative and responsive before and during the stay. Check-in/Check-out was a breeze. Thanks so much Santa!!
Santa was great (kind and helpful) and her place is awsome! Furnishing and decoration beautiful. Clean and tidy. Location is fantastic. We will definetly stay here again.
Overall, I enjoyed our stay. We were in for a week for a business conference and wanted something other than a hotel room. This fit very well. I'll give the pros and the cons.
Pros: Santa was a great host and her place is indeed cool, sizable space and very well located just off the Old Street station. Perfect.
Two bedrooms - comfortable mattresses, great dining table for work or to just eat and talk. Very bright with lots of windows.
Great bars, coffee shop down the street, great neighborhood.
Cons: the building next door is under construction and the workers start promptly at 7:30 a.m. I was out the door by 8 am each day so it wasn't a biggie but if you want to sleep in, good luck.
Minor issue - the place lacks hangars, with no hanging space in closets. That is an easy fix, but coming from abroad, I needed some places to hang my shirts for work. My colleague and I each got one hangar each.
Would I stay again? Probably.
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Santa's beautiful flat. We were greeted punctually at her front door and had a great stay in the super-hip Shoreditch neighborhood. 5 stars!
Santa is really kind, perfect couple for my 1st rent.
Thank you so much !
Deliziosa ospite, discreta e garbata. Esperienza decisamente positiva.
Santa e il suo ragazzo due ottimi ospiti. Molto carini e cordiali.
Hanno lasciato l'appartamento in perfette condizioni.
Spero un giorno possano tornare!!
A presto Santa :)
nice couple! very friendly guests! highly recommended!
Santa is a very hearty, cheerful and funny person. Having her in my apartment felt like staying with a good friend. It's really nice to talk to her. She is also very tidy and careful. I couldn't have a better person as my first guest!
