Charly waited for me at the apartment. He was very welcoming, even though I was late because train and plane were delayed. The same day, he brought me to some of his favorite places to have coffee. Another day he invited me to beer at a local bar. Charly is an amazing host and person, and one of the best (website hidden) I can remember. It's a very nice neighbourhood in a central area. You can walk anywhere: you (email hidden)rpool street station in five minutes and at Tate Modern in half an hour. The description is accurate. On the photo you don't fully appreciate the size of the room. It's quite big for London.
Adeniyi (a.k.a Charlie) was a polite and welcoming host, who put in a reasonable amount of effort to make my stay comfortable. While my schedule did not allow us to interact a great deal, I have no complaints about him personally. The room also was nice, well lit, and spacious. However, there are a few things that future visitors may want to be aware of. Some of these are hopefully easy to fix through clearer communication.
1) The bathroom is cramped and was not overly clean.
2) The mattress had discernible lumps under my back. (Despite this, it was comfortable to sleep on.)
3) Charlie likes the cold and was thus hesitant to keep the heat on (I was visiting in the middle of January, with sub-zero temperatures in London). The heating was inconsistent, and I would wake up some nights in a freezing room.
4) The wifi service was not available for the first few days of my stay, and it would have been helpful to me to have known this information in advance, and not only after I arrived, as it may have changed my choice of accommodation.
5) The washing machine takes almost two hours to do a load of laundry, and not 40 minutes as Charlie said.
I had the best time at Charles apartment in London. He kindly accepted my last minute booking, check in was easy and he helped me with my heavy bags on arrival and when I left! The room was perfect, very spacious with a comfortable bed, sofa and a small table and chair. Full access to kitchen and washing machine which was great. Charles was a very friendly host, on my arrival he showed me the local restaurants and the next day showed me some of the local area and directed me to where I needed to go! He was very hospitable and kind and great to chat to. I felt at home. Also, his place is in an AMAZING location in central London. Great restaurants nearby, multiple underground stations close by and a street market just around the corner on during the week. Highly recommended, I would definitely stay here again..Thanks!!
Charley and his neighbour were very friendly when I arrived and found out the doorbell was out of order :-) The room is very spacious and there is free use of kitchen and bathroom. Shops and places to eat are nearby. The flat is in a quiet neighbourhood, specially at night. Never had that in central London :-)
Charley is a very relaxed host and knows a lot of interesting things about London. We shared a good Indian meal and had a nice chat about meeting people and other cultures. Thanks!
Fantastic location. Spacious room. Great access to Waitrose store across the street. Charles is a superb host who perfectly manages giving his guests space while still being available for the kind of interesting conversations that add to the airbnb experience. Will stay again next time in London.
Charley is a wonderful host, friendly, kind and welcoming, and extremely thoughtful in every detail. The room provided full privacy, felt pleasant, and it was equipped with relevant items that your hotel usually does not provide (e.g., adaptor plugs, cork screw, etc). Access to the kitchen and the washing machine was also a great advantage. The flat has a great location, and it was a wonderful "home" for ten days of teaching and all in central London.
Charles' appartment is at walking distance of practically everything, so I had a great time in London. Charles, who was a wonderful host, even showed me around and told me a lot of interesting stories. Nice restaurants in the neighbourhood, too. The appartment is quite small, but the room is actually quite spacious, especially considdering you're in the centre of London.
I stayed at Charles's place for a week while I was interning in London. The accommodation was great--the room is quite large and Charles provided pretty much everything I needed, including towels and use of the laundry machine and kitchen. The flat is small but has a lot of character, and there is some really cool photography work by Charles on the walls. Although I didn't really mind it, one drawback is that the flat is on the top floor of the building, so if you need to use a lift, it may not be ideal. Overall, I absolutely enjoyed my stay and would definitely stay again the next time I'm in London.
Good location for a good price ! Very close to many central attractions, activities, museums....I enjoyed the stay.
Quarto grande localizado em um bairro calmo e perto do metrô e restaurantes, para chegar ao mercado basta atravessar a rua. Padrão do flat velho mas bem limpo. Foi uma ótima experiência.
very nice person and a great guest.
He is a good person, it is really nice talk with him, very gentle, polite, you are always welcome, thank you
great host great apartment and great location.
Charles è un ospite speciale :) è stato da noi per la seconda volta. Ormai possiamo dire di essere amici. Sempre sorridente e simpatico. Spero di rivederlo da noi qui in sardegna. Consigliatissimo!!!
Charles è stato da noi una settimana e ci siamo trovati benissimo. Educato, gentile e sorridente. Consigliatissimo :)
Welcoming, laid back and relaxed host for anyone visiting London - he knows this cool area really well and seems to know everyone. The room's sunny and south-facing - and it's great that it's so central too.
A great guy! Very calm and helpful. He knows London very well and has lots of suggestions for some great places to go.
The room is really nice and the area around the flat is really cool, lots of good places to eat and drink.
