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 was an excellent host, very welcoming and made sure I had a nice stay in her flat. The apartment was as cosy as the pictures showed and the room was very nice with a comfortable bed and nice fluffy pillows and duvet. The location of the flat couldn't have been better, very close to the Barbican station and a great supermarket (Waitrose) just 100 m away. I would (and will) absolutely stay at Tessas at my next visit to London. Highly recommended!
Thanks Therese and see you soon - and will fix that heating timer by the way! x
Tessa was a fantastic host. Her apartment was a great choice while I got on my feet in London: it was so centrally located, grocery store across the street, a friendly local pub on the corner, and a great street market during the week. Tessa is an excellent tour guide as she will give you both the scenic or the most direct route to get somewhere. I felt comfortable enough in Tessa's home to have a night in watching tv, or just having a chat with her when she was around. Her warm, friendly and welcoming nature made for a great stay.
Tessa is a very friendly host, she can give you lots of tips if you want to go out or if you need to find something. The flat is located about 25min by Tube from the very central London like leicester, or it's a 45min walk if you miss the last Tube. The area is very good, with a supermarket right opposite the flat, some Pub, Hairdresser, Restaurant are in the street. From Monday to Friday there is even a "food market" where you can eat food from everywhere! Very good experience!!
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.
