L'appartement est central proche des transports. Situé dans un quartier très agréable avec de multiples magasins pour faire ses courses ou diner. Visitez le London Musuem très proche .
I truly enjoyed staying at Tessa’s ; the location of her flat is perfect, very close to three Tube stations, with Waitrose – which closes à 10pm – literally across the street, together with eating places, but I just loved the vintage cooker in her kitchen. I even walked to Spitalfields and Bricklane markets, a very helpful suggestion from Tessa – by the way, thanks for writing this very helpful leaflet/guide about your flat and sightseeing activities, tremendously helpful, as Tessa and I only met on my last morning there but I wish I had stayed on a bit more to keep talking !! Her place is super quiet, just the place to unwind after the bustle of the city, the room and bed very cozy/comfy and the whole flat ever so tastefully decorated, with loads of charm !
L'appartement est bien situé, très proche des transports en commun, grande surface et restaurants. Le quartier est sympa, l'appartement et l'immeuble sont charmants. Tessa est accueillante et disponible. Une très bonne expérience à renouveler !
i had an absolutely fabulous time at tessa's place...it is clean, quiet, comfortable and charming....it's very well located for accessing the west end, and has some interesting venues nearby... the neighbourhood seems perfectly safe and pleasant....tessa herself is kind, friendly and interesting....always ready to talk but respectful of one's privacy...gives good advice....i recommend her place without any reservations...you'll be very lucky if she can accommodate you!
A fabulous experience. Tessa's apartment had everything I needed with wonderful atmosphere, organisation and communication. I would definitely return!
Tessa was a great host, and my stay was excellent. The apartment is exactly as described and is located in a strategic position: 5 minutes to everything you may need. Highly recommended.
i enjoyed my stay at tessas place and she was very friendly and helpfull
to me and would certainly stay there again
Tout était comme décrit. J'étais très satisfait de mon séjour chez Tessa.
Tessa och hennes lägenhet var kanon, detta var min andra vistelse hos Tessa och jag kommer definitivt bo där nästa gång jag är i London. Lägenheten ligger väldigt centralt, knappt 5 minuters gång till Barbican, 10 minuter till Old street eller Moorgate. Mycket bekväm säng med tillhörande täcke och kudde samt en vacker vy över Londons takåsar. Det ligger på femte våningen utan hiss, i stort sett den enda nackdelen jag kan tänka på. Det ligger en riktigt bra livsmedelsaffär precis utanför porten och det finns massor av trevliga restauranger och pubar runtomkring! Rekommenderas helt klart!
Staying at Tessa's apartment near the Barbican was a great experience. The apartment is exactly as described except for the fact that it has even better views over London rooftops and the Barbican towers themselves! The location is superb: an easy 5 minute walk from either Barbican, Moorgate or Old Street tubes, whilst also only a 20 minute brisk walk to Tate Modern for instance. The supermarket across the apartment was very convenient for buying groceries for longer stays, and there was always cheap eats around - especially the wonderful food stalls right outside on Whitecross St during weekdays. The room was cosy and always warm despite the oncoming winter weather during my stay, and the washing machine was very convenient for doing some laundry. Yes, no lift up to the 5th floor, but that only helped burn off the carbs from that inevitable extra pint of beer. The apartment itself was super quiet with no audible sound of traffic or noise from neighbours for the perfect night's sleep. Tessa was a very attentive host who obviously puts the comfort of her guests first. Relative to other places based in such a central part of London, the cost is quite a bargain. I would not hesitate to recommend Tessa's place!
Tessa and her partner were charming, considerate guests who left their room immaculate!
I was very happy to have them hosted.
I stayed with Tess for a week in January 2012 (before she was on AirBNB - hence the reference instead of a review). She's an excellent hostess, very easy to talk with and she knows a lot about the area having lived here her whole life. The flat is very nice as well - the twin bed is quite comfortable and there's plenty of space to relax. The views are also very good. The location is outstanding with lots of big sites withing walking distance, and easy tube/bus access. The food market that pops up every weekday is great for lunch too. I'd definitely recommend Tess and her flat!
I got to know Tess through a friend during my first trip to London in December 2011. My boyfriend and I actually stayed with her at the apartment for 10 days and it was wonderful! Tess is a great person, warm and kind. And an excellent host at that. Before our arrival, she prepared an itinerary for us complete with directions and recommendations enough to occupy our stay! Feel free to ask her for tips and suggestions for things to do in London, she knows it all! (: The apartment itself is very cozy and quaint, plus you'll get a good workout twice a day! We had a great stay with Tess and we're sure you will too!
I have known Tessa for at least 12 years,and she has been and is a very loyal and trust worthy and good friend.I highly recommend Tessa,great personality and great to chat with.She has lived in London all her life so she is very informative about places and things to do in the big city.
