Perfect stay! I would say I was lucky to get his apartment at very kind price! Location is perfect as tube station is just 1 min away by walking. He has everything ready and whatever he described in the description is true! I would definitely recommend this place! Thank you Glen!
The flat is near the tube station and great. Glen is easy and friendly.
We were at London for a family and linguistic stay on 6 days, with museum visit, walks, some shopping & visits Harry Potter Leavesden Studio Tour, etc.
Glen's apartment was a very good starting point: it is a 5-minute walk from Brixton underground station, on Victoria Line, on 15/20 mn of the City. This apartment was a very good choice and has largely contributed to make our stay in London easy and enjoyable.
Nous étions à Londres pour un séjour familial et linguistique de plusieurs jours, avec visite de musées, promenades, courses, visite du Harry Potter Leavesden Studio Tour, etc. L’appartement de Glenn a été un très bon point de départ : il est à 5 minutes à pieds de la station de métro Brixton. Cette station est le terminus sud de la ligne « Victoria Line », qui traverse le vieux Londres, remonte vers les Gares de Euston et King’s Cross – St Pancras et continue vers le nord-est. La ligne dessert les stations de Victoria, Green Park, Oxford Circus et il suffit de 20 minutes pour être à proximité de Westminster, Soho, Buckingham Palace, etc. et de toutes les connexions aux principales autres lignes de métro.
Pour la nourriture, l’appartement est très bien situé : les fenêtres donnent sur un marché (« Brixton Market ») et l’appartement est à 5 minutes du marché couvert de Brixton (Les Arcades). Magasins de fruits et légumes, poissonniers, bars, restaurants, pizzéria (il faut aller chez Franco Manca !), english breakfast … mais aussi supermarchés Marks & Spencer, Sainsbury’s, Iceland : tout est là sur place, ouvert en journée et pour certains jusqu’en soirée.
Glen était absent lorsque nous sommes arrivés. Mais il nous avait adressé par mail des informations très détaillées pour trouver l’appartement assez facilement (on y accède par l’arrière-cour qui donne sur Electric Lane). C’est un appartement assez grand pour 4 personnes, avec une chambre double, une salle de bains avec WC, et une cuisine équipée qui donne sur un salon où se trouve le canapé-lit pour 2 personnes. Le quartier est coloré, humain, très vivant, y compris le soir et le week-end : il ne faut pas hésiter à emporter des bouchons d’oreille !
Le seul point faible est la propreté, qui n’est peut-être pas respectée par les locataires qui se suivent dans cet appartement : la vaisselle n’était pas irréprochable et le réfrigérateur méritait un bon nettoyage. Mais globalement, l’appartement de Glen fut un très bon choix et a largement contribué à rendre notre séjour à Londres facile et agréable.
The place was simply amazing with very good transport links (about 1-2minutes walk to Brixton Train Station). Very good eating places just outside the apartment. The Brixton market and supermarket are just outside the door, making shopping for necessities extremely easy. It is surprisingly quiet at night. Glen was very helpful when it came to giving directions and answering any of our queries. We got a chance to meet him once we arrived, and he is very nice, and people friendly. He was willing to suit our check and check out times according to our flights. The place is in zone 2, hence, transport fares were quite cheap considering other zones, and it was very close to most popular locations in central London. The apartment is small, but ideal as it has all the tools necessary to suit all of your needs. To tell you the truth, once I got used to it, I loved the apartment! It was cosy and comfortable. I would recommend it to anyone, especially those on a tight budget who are looking for an affordable lodging almost right in the centre of London. Would definitely lodge there again if I were to visit London again.
Glen's place is in a happening part of town, the Brixton Market is right downstairs, two floors down, to be precise. Google it, so you know. The food you can buy there is the best and the freshest, and there are good places to eat out, repeat, good places to eat out. His kitchen is ready for cooking, so if you want to eat in a lot, and brown bag it around London, that's easy and delicious to do. You're right around the corner from Brixton tube stop, four stops from Victoria Station; you're in Zone 2. There are also lots of buses in to the City, to Westminster, to Chelsea, (all half hour or less) and all over London south of the river. This part of Brixton is wide-awake, tough, cool, a little hard-bitten, funky, beginning to gentrify, and, for people who really like a city, fun. The apartment is really right for a couple. Market noise downstairs all day (we liked that) and a surprise how quiet at night.
Glen rents when he's out of town. His written instructions covered all the bases. And his reviews on Yelp really help to orient and point in the right direction, not just in Brixton, and in greater London, but through England as well.
Perfect location, we love Brixton and we enjoyed very much Franco Manca's pizzas just nearby ;) Very close to Brixton station and to all commodities.
Good deal for a short getaway in London.
No chance to meet Glen as it was Christmas and he has back to his home town. If you are looking for a convenient place where you can buy food to cook and easy access to public transport, this is the place. A very cosy place made you don't feel like going out especially during winter time. During our stay for a week there, we feel like we are the resident who live there :).
The flat is just around the corner of Brixton tube station and the famous Brixton Market is in front of the door. The apartment has everything you need for your stay, very spacious for London standards and Glen was a great host. We arrived earlier than scheduled which wasn’t a problem.
Glen was awesome and so was his flat! Absolutely amazing transport links, great vibe, and comfortable. I would definitely stay at Glen's place again!
Nice couple! Didn't meet by Arrival, but did meet When leaving. Smooth communication, left my place clean, ... Recommend them!
Glen and his friend were very friendly guests, always welcome to come back! Communication was also good!
It was actually Glen's parents in law who stayed on this trip. They left my flat lovely and clean and glen was very easy to deal with arranging their stay. Would definitely welcome them again.
Very nice guy very respectful and clean and easy going, it was a pleasure to host him.
Glen was an amazing guest. They don't get any better than that. He was clean quiet respectful. I highly recommend him! Five stars!
