Great stay, first time for me in London, and I am not disappointed ! Thank´s Sam for great flat ! Bye for now ;)
The flat is gorgeous, clean, very well equipped and super easy to get to, in a friendly neighbourhood. There are plenty of grocery stores, cafes and pubs nearby, and the location is super convenient for public transportation.
I didn't get to meet Sam, but his mother was there when I arrived to show me around the house. She was super nice and helpful and took the time to answer my questions for getting directions and figuring out the transportation system. It was also very easy to get a hold of Sam by email and most of our correspondance was done that way, which was easy (especially considering there's WiFi available).
I would highly recommend this gorgeous place. One thing to keep in mind is that the walls are thin and there is a unit right above this one. Sound travels very easily from that unit, and though the neighbours weren't home often, I could hear their TV at night. If you're sensitive to sound, this would be something to keep in mind. Otherwise, the place is beautiful and well-kept; the price is great; and Sam and his mother were wonderful to deal with and very considerate towards people's needs. I would definitely suggest Sam's place to friends and family.
We absolutely enjoyed our stay in London and we would highly recommend Sam's flat. It is perfectly well located, very clean, just beautiful and had everything we needed. Unfortunately it wasn't possible to meet Sam himself, but his mother was very welcoming!! The communication via airbnb was also very easy. The area around the flat is very nice, clean and save. We tried GAIL'S for breakfast and THE SALUSBURY for dinner and drinks and were absolutely pleased.
Definitely 5 stars!!!!!
Highest recommendation – the flat is very clean, comfortable, and quiet, and located in a great neighborhood. Sam is kind, friendly and helpful; he responded within an hour every time i contacted him and took care of things very efficiently. Checking in and out was super simple. Overall it was a great experience. Definitely book this place. Thanks Sam!
If there's a word to describe this Flat then that is "cosy". Slash "complimentary moisturising lotion". I may have stayed in Sam's apartment for only a fly-by week in November, but it remains the highlight-accom of a 5 week Eurotrip, not just because of the location (5 minutes from the tube station and on a central Bakerloo line that conveniently stops at all the major tourist attractions) but also thanks to a brilliant host. iPhone and laptop went dead as soon as I landed at Heathrow, and I knew the street name but drew a blank on the number and would've wandered around forever and a day had Sam's mother not tracked me down mid-panic and showed me in, where Sam was waiting. This place has all the modcons (super-fast wifi, heating, washing machine) but Sam went a step further and had a temporary phone loaded with call credit ready for me to use. Queen's Park is delish; the attached main road comes with all kinds of bakeries and flower shops and restaurants, sandwiched inside a cute and friendly neighbourhood and policed by, for some reason, just women. Women police officers with sensible hair-do's. Everywhere. That might explain the calm. Either way, this Flat has it all: charming walk-in, great shower-room, modern set-up, perfect central location, perfect host.
Definitely recommending this one to others.
Great place, exactly as listed. Ideal for short or even longer stays as ours was. Good location in a friendly neighborhood and very close to the tube and to a variety of stores, restaurants, cafés and even the organic farmers market, as mentioned, which is well worth a visit.
Sam is a great host, always available, very helpful and attentive to all details surrounding your stay.
Book this place. Sam is a great host.
We had a great time, the flat is very close to the tube station (Queens Park - Zone 2) in a quiet residential area and very nicely decorated. Many shops, pubs and bars are within 5 Mins. walking distance. The handover of the keys and everything went absolutely smoothly, we can only recommend Sam as a host!
Sam had a great flat and it was perfect for our needs!
My stay at Sam's flat was great. The apartment was spotless and exactly as listed. The location is very close to the tube to get you into central London, and the neighborhood was just charming with a bakery, grocery store, flower shop, and restaurants at your doorstep. Lovely place and great host with lots of helpful tips. Book this space!!
sehr sympatisch, super nett, super ordentlich. tolle gäste.
Sam and Ryan stayed here for a couple of nights. The communication was excellent. They were very friendly and respectful. They left the place very clean! Great guests! Highly recommended!
Sam was a very good guest, infortunately we don't met because i was working when he arrived and left my place. He was clean, friendly, so communicating and has very good manners.
I think he had a good stay and good trip in Paris.
I recommend him highly and hope to see him another time. Thank you to have choice my place.
You're welcome Sam, best. Garance.
Sam and Ryan were very nice guests! Thank You for being at our/your "home in Verona"..We hope to see You again..may be in London!

Sam was a lovely guest, educated, quiet and very gentle. He´s also a host in London so he knows perfectly well how to take care your place and he left my flat in perfect conditions. I highly recommend Sam and I´ll be glad in having him again at home.
I have known Sam for about four years since we went to University together. I would be proud to recommend Sam as a host to other Airbnb members as he is organised, meticulously clean and pays attention to the small details that make all the difference. Sam takes pride in everything he puts hard work into and is selfless and honest.
It has recently come to my attention that Sam, one of my closest friends, has joined this online community. I provide this recommendation of my own volition as I feel the world should know what a great guy he is. I first met Sam at an annual University event sponsored by government, industry and the student union. Since then he's always been there for me when I have needed him. We have had some wonderful adventures together. Sam is a very conscientious person and one of the most trustworthy people I know. Without a doubt Sam's easy-going attitude and impeccable sense of humour make him the ideal traveling companion. Moreover, I cannot think of anybody who has met Sam who hasn't immediately warmed to his charming personality. Sam is the ideal guest and an even better host, he is like a ray of sunshine on a cloudy day. I highly recommend him to other airbnb users.
Sam has been a friend of mine for around five years. He is an incredibly hard working individual, and a diligent host and guest. I have been on holday to Prague with him, and we struck the right balance between 'doing our own thing' and experiencing the city together. I would definitely recommend him to Airbnb members who wish to travel with him, or stay in London.
Sam is a good friend of mine from University. I have known him since January 2009. I unreservedly vouch for him as a trustworthy and respectful person who will take care of any accommodation in which he stays. In addition, he is a great person to travel with. We had an amazing time in Rome earlier this year, doing a mixture of the garishly touristy sight-seeing to experiencing some of the more local cultural aspects of the city. Like myself, he seems to prefer shorter city breaks, fitting a lot into a small time period. I provide this recommendation without incertitude in the knowledge that Sam is an ideal candidate as both a travel partner and guest.
