Russian and American now living in London. Love Traveling and exploring new things.
Maria is a great host! We loved her kindness and she was always ready to answer all our doubts and concerns. She was kind enough to leave us some guidebooks for London and knowing we were brazilians, she lent a heater (LOL)!
The only bad were two things: the shower was really weak (she warned us) and that seems to be impossible to solve because it's a problem in the whole building and Elephant/Castle underground station becomes kinda "non-inviting" at night.
Besides that, we loved our stay: it's really close to everything, the whole neighborhood is quiet and the bar/pub downstairs doesn't bother at all (they have great food also!).
Overall, it's a 9.5 out of 10!
Upon arrival at Maria's flat we were faced with many challenges due to problems within the flat. Despite that, Maria's flat is accessible to London by public transportation by foot or the underground. Maria was as helpful as she could be given the circumstances. For a longer stay I would think it would be challenging to accomodate four adults in the flat, for two it works out fine.
Excellent location, very near to tube and bus, walking distance to the center. South side of the Thames is very interesting. Flat conditions need improvement, good for short stay. Maria is nice host.
Maria is a great host. The apartment is comfortable and its well located.
Maria's apartment is in a great location, close (about a 30 minute walk) to the center of London (which we found out since the tube was inaccessible due to a strike) and right across the street from a tube station. There's also a mall right next to the apartment complex where you can find Tesco as well as a 99 cent store.
The studio itself is bright and spacious (just as described). It was a bit of a tight squeeze to fit 4 people in the studio apartment since there's only 1 bedroom... but two of us slept on the bed, and the other 2 slept on her sofa-bed. We had trouble operating the shower booster, so we didn't get much water for the shower. But overall, for the price, we had a fantastic experience.
Although we didn't get to meet Maria, she made sure that we find our way around London on Christmas Day by getting one of her friend to meet us at Victoria Coach station. She also left us a bottle of Bailey's as a Christmas present, which I thought was very nice of her.
Maria was an excellent guest, well organised and polite. It was a pleasure to host during her trip.
