The experience couldn't have been better! Tess was extremely welcoming and helpful. The flat is very well-kept, and Tess provides everything you might need for your stay. It's in a nice, quiet neighborhood, close to several tube stops, and quite convenient to reach major tourist destinations. This was perfect for exploring London for a few days, and I highly recommend staying here!
Thanks so much, Patrick - it was great to have you to stay!
I stayed in Tessa's house for a week with my kids. My wife felt like we are at home. You think of anything and you will find that in her room. Its quite comfortable, there are two tube stations just on 5 minutes walk, you will get taxi on next street, waitrose is at your doorstep, what else is needed. This area is little away from London's rushy life, which you need after getting tired in evening. When you are at Tessa's house you just need 1) a credit card 2) oyster card 3) a phone with data pack, make sure to download Uber or Eddison Lee if you have ant plans to travel till late in evening...everything else will be alright!!
Tessa's home is a perfect base from which to explore the amazing city of London. Even though we arrived very late in the evening, she greeted us, gave us a quick orientation to the house and neighborhood, and even stocked the fridge with bagels and cream cheese, milk and coffee in case we were hungry. She had a multi-page guide to the house and 'hood we could peruse at our leisure. Barbican feels like a "real" neighborhood, away from the touristy hustle and bustle, but walking distance to sights such as the London Museum and St. Paul's and equidistant between Mooregate and Barbican Stations. Whitecross Street, just around the corner from Tessa's has an abundance of restaurants and lunch stalls. We were a group of 4, and while it was cosy (with me on the floor on a blow up mattress), it worked just fine. The 5 flights of stairs was a good balance for the pints of ale we consumed. :-)
Thank you so much, Meagan - it was a pleasure to host you all and so glad you made good use of the neighborhood! see you again sometime I hope - Tess

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.
Tessa was a perfect guest, I have been very glad to know her, and I hope to see her again in Lucca for a longer stay. I recommend her as guest to everybody
Because Tessa has her own listings in London, she and her partner Will know what it means to host strangers in your private space: they were greatly respectful of Laura’s “lived-in” haven down at the seaside in Camogli, and left everything in perfect order, observing the checkin/out times and the handling of the house keys with our friend Fiorella, the pasta lady next door. Thank you Tessa and Will for your visit.
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.
