Virginia is an excellent hostess, with a lovely home in a amazing part of London. We spent a week here with our teenage daughter and the nearby Shoreditch and Spitalfields markets are wonderful places to shop, dine and find great deals. Virginia's home is lovely, comfortable and in an excellent neighborhood. At no time were we uncomfortable, unable to sleep or unable to catch a cab. I definitely recommend her as a hostess to anyone. This was our first trip using Airbnb and she provided all the know-how that we needed to ensure it went smoothly.
This was my first Airbnb experience and it was great!
The flat is well located - easy walk to three different tube stations and buses. Virginia was very helpful before and during my visit - gave me excellent instructions on various options of travel from the airport and lots of advice while I was there! There was even a travel power adapter in the drawer - so helpful.
I was able to extend my visit while I was there, thanks for the flexibility Virginia! The room was a nice size for me and my suitcase. I had a lovely time. Highly recommended!
The reservation was canceled 4 days before arrival. This is an automated posting.
This is my fourth or fifth time staying with Virginia. This is a place in a great location in London. It has provided me with a lot of joy... a nice point to begin the discovery of the city.
[EN] We are delighted with our stay at Virginia's lovely flat! The apartment is nice and well equipped, exactly like the photos with a beautiful living room and two clean rooms. Well located, 8min Barbican underground, the apartment is very quiet and we were awakened by the sound of birds .. in the center of London!
We had a realy good contact with the owner, very available and responsive in our exchange (via email or SMS). if I had to choose again, I would not hesitate one second.
[FR] Nous sommes ravis de notre séjour chez Virginia ! L’appartement est joli et bien équipé, fidèle aux photos avec une belle pièce à vivre et deux chambres fonctionnelles. Bien localisé, à 8min du métro Barbican, l’appartement est très calme et nous avons été réveillé par le son des oiseaux.. en plein centre de Londres !
Nous avons eu un très bon contact avec la propriétaire , très disponible et réactive dans nos échanges (par email ou par SMS). Si c'était à refaire, je n'hésiterai pas une seconde.
Virginia has been a wonderful host. She helped me with practicalities, gave me amazing suggestions for christmas shopping and even shared with me a delicious sunday's roast meal! Virginia has been very flexible with the check-in time since my flight was delayed.
Her flat is incredibly well located in Clerkenwell, a very nice and safe neighborhood in the hearth of central London. The location is at the same time very quiet, away from major roads, and very well connected with Barbican and Farringdon tube and train station at less than 10 mins walk, plus busses. Many food stores, shops and restaurants nearby.
The room, although small was clean and corresponding to description and photos published. Same for the rest of the flat. Being the living room, kitchen and garden (!) shared spaces the room's size wasn't an issue at all.
Overall I'm very satisfied with my 10 days stay at Virginia's and definitely recommend her as a host.
My stay in Lizzie's place was perfect. She is a great host and communicated clearly throughout my stay. The apartment is well located in London, close to the tube and near many pubs and coffee shops. The room in her home was comfortable and she even left a packet of "things to do" in London, along with the latest time out which was thoughtful. I would highly recommend her flat and would stay again on a future trip to London.
A beautiful place and an outstanding host - great communication and hospitality above and beyond. Can't recommend Virginia highly enough.
Virginia was such a gracious host for my brief stay in London. My schedule was a bit hectic and I had to check in late. She was extremely accommodating and was able to let me into the flat late in the evening.
The flat itself was great and SO quiet -- which I greatly appreciated! Everything was clean, tidy, and exactly as described.
I was heading to Dublin the next day and Virginia was able to give a fabulous pub recommendation as well! She is a true host! I would highly recommend (and have already recommended) a stay with Virginia during your next visit to London.
Virginia was a wonderful host. This was my first airbnb experience and it was a very positive one, largely due to her. She always made sure to give me insider tips on the best sites to see and how to navigate the tube and bus system (which can be daunting at first). She also pointed me to Kennedy's of London (there's one right around the corner)--best fish & chips! Very fresh. She was ever making my life easier, especially when I had to stow my luggage at her place for a few hours after checkout. The apartment itself is neat, clean, and very suitable for a single traveller. The location was very convenient for many of the main sights. And last, but not at all least, she's great to chat with. Thanks for a warm welsome and wonderful stay!
Virginia and her sister stayed in my apartment for 4 nights. They were very nice guests. The communication went smoothly, and they arrived on time. I would definitely recommend Virginia as guest to anyone else."
Virginia, her sister and nephew were my first guests at this apartment. They were great guest at all stages of the process. Communication, booking, arrival and they took perfect care of the apartment. I did not send her right the adress but she managed to get to the place. I´d love to have them back and I would love to go to her place in London that has such awesome reviews.
I recommend any host to accept her reservations with out a doubt.
Virginia and her family were amazing! They arrived as planned and left the apartment in good shape. We'd deffinitely host her again, thank you Virginia.
