First time using airbnb and will definitely be using it again after this experience. Flat was great - exactly as shown. Clean, great amenities, fantastic location. We had a fantastic few days in London staying in the flat.
This was my first experience using Airbnb, and thanks to Anthony's timely helpfulness in the lead up to my visit, and the exceptional nature of the facilities once I had arrived, I will absolutely be staying with Anthony again the next time I'm in London, and will continue to use Airbnb when I'm going on vacation. I was in touch with Anthony constantly during this whole process, and he was enormously helpful the entire time. Once I had successfully booked the flat, he even sent typed directions with a map on how to get there, the wifi password (the wifi works great) and even a list of restaurants to visit in the city.
As for the flat itself, you can do no better. It has a bedroom with a very comfortable bed, a bathroom with great water pressure in the shower, and a living room/kitchen that is fully equipped, the refrigerator being the biggest selling point for me personally. Aesthetically it looks just like it does in the photos, which needless to say is quite nice. It is fully furnished with a couch and coffee table, a chair, a tv, and proper table with four chairs, with the Gherkin lurking just outside the windows. There is a grocery store just a few blocks away and an ATM machine as well, just ask the concierge (there are two of them, and both are very nice) and he'll send you in the right direction. During the night, it is extremely quiet. I could not hear much of anything from any of the other flats at any point in time during my stay, which was in stark contrast to the hotel I stayed at during my previous visit where I could hear just about everything. Rest assured, this is a very comfortable living space.
Arriving at the flat was simple. I took the underground from Heathrow at around 7:30am (the Piccadilly Line), switched lines at the South Kensington station (you can take either the District Line or the Circle Line to Tower Hill) and was in the flat lying down on the bed by 9:15am. It is a one minute walk from the Tower Hill tube station, depending on which way you exit. I suggest walking as far down the platform as possible and leaving up the stairs that way, otherwise you'll have to walk around the outside of the station which will extend the commute to the flat by 2-3 minutes at the most. Either way, it is an extremely short walk from the station to your room. The flat is also right near several very nice hotels, one of which, the Doubletree, has a very cool rooftop bar that offers a rather lovely view of the city.
If you're new to Airbnb like I was, send Anthony a message and ask him yourself about the flat. I had a fantastic stay, and I look forward to staying in Anthony's place again at some point in the very near future. Thanks Anthony!
Нам очень понравилась квартира Anthony! Она отлично расположена - в 3 минутах от Tower of London. До остановки обычных и туристических автобусов 2 минуты. Там же продают билеты на эти автобусы, все экскурсии и достопримечательности. Метро, электрички и станция речных корабликов так же в пешей доступности. Соседнее здание - отель, где можно купить завтраки или выпить коктейль на 12 этаже с красивым видом из окон.
Сама квартира очень комфортабельная. Там есть большая кухня (холодильник, чайник, плита, микроволновка и пр... - всё что необходимо для готовки). В спальне большой шкаф, камод и очень удобная 2х-спальная кровать с огромным одеялом! Я спала как младенец:)
Перед поездкой Anthony отправил мне письмо с подробным описанием того, как добраться до квартиры на любом виде транспорта, так же он отправил инструкцию по Wi-Fi (кстати, я потом могла использовать его логин/пароль в разных кафе в центре) и описание ресторанов, где можно вкусно покушать.
Так же он встретил нас и показал всё в квартире, а если нам что-то было нужно дополнительно (комплект ключей или фен, то он тут же всё привозил). Очень милый и доброжелательный хозяин:)
Amazing stay. Thanks!

This is a great apartment, just as shown. Anthony is a great host, very responsive and responsible.
The location is also very convenient if you came to the City for business. Tower Hill station on District line is very close. Tower Gateway for DLR is also very close which helps if you need to go to Canary Wharf for business.
It is hard to say anything negative about my experience. The apartment was very clean and organised. All the things you'll need is available including shampoo, washing detergents, bottled water, salt, even tea and coffee. All I had to do is to shop for some food. There is a Tesco Express at Aldgate which is very close. Kitchen is very well equipped too.
I also liked the Samsung Smart TV, which you can connect a USB drive/stick and listen to your music or watch a movie.
My only minor difficulty is with the Wi-Fi, which asks for the access password every time you connect. However, once connected all is great.
Natural Kitchen just beside the building is a great place for meals all through the (website hidden). Katharine's Dock is close by for nice restaurants and a great view.
In summary, if the location suits you, this is great for one person or a couple to stay. Highly recommended.
Anthony's flat was tremendous! Everything was even better than described. This flat will be on my list every time I go to London! Anthony was a very organized host, there was no hassle in getting the keys to the flat and checking in or leaving. There is a large Waitrose Supermarket close by, not to mention the tube stop is only 100m or so away.
Precisely placed in one of my favorite areas in West London. The host Anthony is one of the best intentioned hosts I've met on the Air BnB circuit. Awesome person to deal with. Love it. Will be coming back!
Another really great stay. Peaceful, clean, great facilities, and a perfect location. Thanks Anthony.
Excellent accommodation which is is very clean and well presented. Location is good and very close to the tube station. Host responded quickly to all enquiries. Would definitely recommend to anyone.
Anthony was a very good guest: On the first impression he seemed a bit shy, but that was just his politeness. Soon he showed quite some interest and did not hesitate to ask for little things I could help him out with. As he stays in Berlin a little longer, we´re gonna keep the contact to each other, as we had quite nice days with each other.
Anthony was the perfect guest. Charming, engaging, interesting, tidy and considerate. It was truly a pleasure having him in our home, and I'm looking forward to seeing him a gain while he's still in San Francisco.
Anthony was an absolute gentleman. He is more than welcome to stay in my home anytime. The perfect guest.
Anthony is the perfect guest. He is considerate, polite, interesting, and charming, everything you'd expect of an educated gentleman from London. It was a wonderful experience hosting him on his very first trip to the US.
We were fortunate enough to have Antony stay with us another night and welcome him back anytime he's in the area. He's the type of guest that could quickly become a great friend.
Anthony was a very friendly and courteous guest. He's quite knowledgeable and with all of his european experiences, he's fun to chat with. He left a very small footprint in our home, picked up after himself and even brought a number of amenities for himself. We'd love to have him stay with us again in the future!
