So I'll try to be brief and factual at the same time:
As I needed urgently a room (I was booking on Tuesday evening for the night of Wednesday) I got an answer followed by a quick conversation not even an hour later. Very responsive.
Still, as I arrived on Wednesday 13am, the room was ready for me, not even 24 hours later that I could put my stuff. And you should see the place, very clean and ready to welcome me: small message to wish me a good stay, wifi password, a map of the city, and so on.
After a quick installation, I was on my way to get every facilities I will need like transport card, mobile phone, bank account etc. Before I want outside, I got the best tips from my hosts regarding cellular phone (which is perfect btw), the different type of tansport card (oystercard: pay as you use vs travel card ).
If you're aiming to stay in London and need a temporary place near the center of London, feel free to contact Min.
If you're planning some vacation in London, it would also be a great idea to stay at this place because it's near London center by underground, near Tower bridge by foot and if that's not enough, they will be plenty of double decker buses nearby.
For me, it was my first Airbnb and I don't want it to be the last!
Lovely couple. I wish I had more time to spend with them but I was quite busy -which they graciously accommodated. Everything was exactly as advertised and as needed. The neighborhood is great. The place is clean and drama free. I'd stay here again or recommend the same for my friends.
Min was a great host and is very friendly, laid back and very easy to get along with. His apartment is very clean and spacious . Location is very convenient, around 1-2 minutes away from Shadwell station, which will basically connect you to anywhere around London. With many local amenities close by, this made my stay very comfortable, and I felt very much at home. The price is perfect for what you get, compared to staying in a hotel.... Highly recommend! =)
It has been a week or so since my stay with Min, and I was in two minds if I should write this review or not, but since he messaged me to ask for feedback, I'll do what I can to help.
Firstly the positives. The flat is in an amazing location for anyone needing access to Central London, particularly the City as you are only a 3 minute train ride away from Bank station.
Also, I want to say that Min was an absolutely top guy and I very much enjoyed the conversations we had during my stay - we share an interest in culture and business and he is clearly a smart and hardworking person who is bound to succeed in life. I would definitely enjoy going for a drink with him, but might not be 100% sure I would choose to stay with him again via Airbnb.
There are a couple of reasons for this. The first was communication. I was quite clear when I made my booking that I needed to check in around noon. It was only the day before my arrival that Min told me he could only meet me to check in at 3pm. Then he was delayed and didn't arrive at the flat until 3.30pm. This did cause me some inconvenience as I had to reschedule my plans for the day.
The flat was as pictured and was clean. The room is small, which was totally fine.
However, the bed itself was quite unstable which didn't make for the most comfortable night's sleep. Also the sheets, while clean, seemed to have what looked like a few blood stains on them, which I didn't feel that great about.
Finally, not something that is Min's fault at all, and a disadvantage of being in such a central location, you will find the room very noisy at night. Watney Market seems to be a place that people will congregate until early in the morning on most days.
I have now stayed in a few different Airbnb places in London and would say the standard is very high. So while there was nothing terrible at all about my stay, I would say this ranks below average. With only a few modifications to the experience I'm sure this listing could be very good indeed.
First of all, I have to thank Min for allowing me to stay at his place on such short notice. I was scrambling to look for a place literally 2 days before reaching London. Luckily, Min accepted my reservation! I think due to the last minuteness of my booking, somethings were not prepared prior to my arrival. Now onto the review!
Min's place was very spacious and convenient. It's location is literally 1-2 minute walk from the Shadwell Station, which will basically connect you to anywhere in London. There is a nice little cafe in front of his building where I basically got my breakfast every morning.
The apartment itself was very spacious. There were 2 bedrooms, a kitchen area, a living/dining area, as well as a nice bathroom. It made for a very comfortable stay.
If I were to go back to London, I would definitely stay at Min's place.
the apartment is about a 2 minute walk to the "Shadwell" DLR station. I'm not an Oyster expert but it seemed to me that being in Zone Two only cost a few pence more than being in Zone One, so that should hardly be a concern.
Shadwell is one stop on the DLR from Bank. As I was attending a conference in the Square Mile, the location was excellent.
The apartment is also quite spacious. I was staying with a girlfriend and we used the extra bedroom to lay out our clothes. I suppose we had 3x as much space for the money that would have gotten us a cheap, cramped hotel room near Paddington Station.
Highly recommended. If I am back in London for meetings/ business in the Square Mile I would definitely stay here again.
Min is a great guy who was really accommodating. We even made a scheduling mistake (on our side) and got our check out date wrong and needed to stay an extra night. He was very understanding and let us stick around for an extra night. Good location thats close to much of the east london neighborhoods you'll want to spend time in, but also near the quiet and wonderful little area of wapping. Being able to walk to the various basins and pubs on the river is a huge plus. This is a great place if you want to get a new sense of London!
The apartment was clean when we moved in, the owner was there waiting for us when we arrived. He even allowed us move in a day earlier than agreed. The house was exactly as the pictures on the site depicted, he also made us feel more at home by taking down all his personal portraits on the wall. The apartment is close to local amenities which also made our stay more comfortable, everything about the place including the price was perfect.
Min Lee e i suoi genitori sono stati della persone educatissime,
discrete e molto attente a non arrecare alcun disturbo, in altre
parole, degli ospiti ideali. Highly recommended!
Non ho avuto un buon rapporto con Min e la sua famiglia,è stato poco educato e rispettoso delle regole della casa,a volte anche troppo lamentoso.Non lo consoglio come ospite.
