Perfectly located apartment! 5 minute walk from Earl's Court tube and lots of restaurants and bars!
Clean with all the basic amenities and secure building!
Patrick provided lots of information and made our trip really easy! 3 of us stayed and there was plenty of room
Great host with great Accomodation! very helpful with any questions I had and willing to help. Accomodation is I a great location and just how pictured. Very pleased and would definitely stay again!!
We stayed in the apartment for 5 days recently, and I have to admit i was fairly disappointing with the apartment. I don't necessarily blame the owner or the pictures but the reviews provided by others. The purpose of these reviews is not to be mean for the sake or being mean (or nice for the sake of being nice) but to help educate other renters and urge the owner to take appropriate action.
This apartment has very good potential with just some minor changes done by the owner. Let me just lay our some of the basic items that need attention (and probably can be covered in the amount of $ is gave in the 5 days we stayed there).
- Old and colorful towels. Hotels and apartments must provide fairly new and white towels so you can be assured they are cleaned with bleach.
- Closets filled with junk (including old, used sheets and bedding).
- Very uncomfortable mattress on bed in the bedroom. Bedding was also not white (see comment re: towels)
- Very old carpet in the bedroom (hardwood is also very old). Solution to this is to either change the carpet with new flooring or at a minimum place a couple of nice clean rugs in the bedroom and the living room.
- Bathroom was remodeled but the door and tub (with ring stains)are very old. So the pictures may be misleading
- Kitchen was remodeled and nice but the overall cleanliness of the apartment made us weary of using the appliances and the cooking ware in the kitchen.
The bottom line is that these are very easy things to change and the owner should change. If more constructive feedback was provided by others the owner may spend the couple of hundred $'s to make it up to par.
Just some more info...
The apartment itself did not seem very clean (of course that is not the owners fault).
The location is very good being 3-5 minute walk from Earls Court Station, but if I was giving advise to anyone I would suggest you stay closer to the South Kensington metro stop...it's just seemed to be a nicer location with couple of nice streets with restaurants and cafes.
Great place to stay! The apartment was exactly as pictured/described. We were a group of 8 and the apartment fit us perfectly. Appreciated the fully equipped kitchen as it allowed us to prepare decent meals. Apartment is close to the South Kensington tube station, with bus stops even closer. Would recommend this for large groups!
The flat was exactly as described and very good location.
It was easy to get into and the instructions to gain access etc were very easy to follow. Very secure also. The flat had everything that we needed for our stay and was clean and tidy.
We really enjoyed our stay, thank you very much.
This is our second visit to this great apartment. Once again we had a great time, the location is fantastic allowing easy access to some great areas of London. The apartment was once again a great place to base ourselves for the weekend. It was clean and in good condition. It has lots if room to relax and to socialise, it was perfect for our needs.
Patrick was a great host and even assisted us when booking despite the fact that he was on holiday!!
Staying in Patrick apartment was an amazing experience. Great location. Exactly as described in his advertisement. Extremely helpful and accommodating both Patrick and Alexndra. Would highly recommend and would 100% stay there again. Thank you Patrick. X
We appreciated Patrick's efforts to remedy the problems we experienced - logging on to wifi and getting the TVs to work. The TVs were too complicated - we prefer just to press the "on" button.
The location is good. However, the bedrooms face busy Brompton Road and the traffic noise is extreme. The bed was comfortable, but we had to abandon it and sleep in the living room (facing Egerton Gardens) for the last 3 nights. The drapes shown in the top floor bedroom on the web may have helped but they are no longer there.
This property did not meet our expectations. There were 5 people in our party. There were only 4 towels that were acceptable - the others were very poor quality. I would have liked a tea towel in the kitchen.
The smallest bedroom is not as shown on the web. A bunk bed has been included.
The showers are not great and in the downstairs bathroom the shower attachment does not fit securely in its fitting on the wall. I prefer to have a lid on the toilet - in fact this is the first time I have not had a lid on the toilet.
The laundry area is disgraceful.
Hi Kent - as you know, it was a difficult rental, your particular stay ; sometimes renters expectations are so high, and the focus on the negative, even tiny things, just does not stop. We always remained positive though !
Great neighborhood, fantastic location for a trip to London. Patrick was very responsive.
Fantastic size and location. Perfect for sight seeing, shopping, theatres etc
Patrick was unable to make his visit at the last minute but he was courteous enough to send a message and advise of what has happened that stopped him from showing up, thank you for doing so.
Patrick is very friendly, polite and easygoing. He left the apartment very clean and organized. I recomend him to all hosts
It was a pleasure hosting Patrick's family. They kept the house in order, left it super clean and were generally awesome to host!
Patrck Foi excelente hospede, cuido muito bem do apartamento, recomendo sempre como hospede e bem-vindo sempre no Rio de Janeiro. Abracos.
Patrick was a perfect guest. Hope to have him again as a guest. Thank you Patrick!
Patrick was really a wonderful Guest!!
I think he really knows how to be a Guest in Airbnb, he always has the right question to do, always very very polite.
He took yoga lessons, cooking lessons, massage in ayurveda style, come for lecture on spiritual topics and it was really amazing how he stayed with us in such an integrative way.
Rishikesh is already missing him!!
Patrick was a nice guest. He took great care of the apartment and our communication was excellent. We highly recommend him and he is welcome back in Rio at any time!
Nice and friendly family. The apt was left fine, I had no problems.
Patrick and his family have been wonderful guests! They are very polite and helpful. They took care of the apartment as their own home. I definitly recommend!
Excellent experience - very clean, responsive, considerate and happy tenant. Highly recommend.Thank you fro staying with ba4u apartments.
