Fantastic size and location. Perfect for sight seeing, shopping, theatres etc
A really nicely furnished apartment in a really great location.
The cleaning wasn't completely done when we got there and we had some internet challenges, which were minor annoyances.
The biggest problem was a rather pungent paint smell. The painter was still painting when we got to the apartment and the smell of paint was pervasive during both nights, we were there.
The first thing that we noticed upon arrival was the abundance of fold up beds that are crammed into any spare space, giving the apartment more a feel of a fraternity house than a luxury apartment. This made it difficult to make full use of the space without bumping into one of the beds and really nowhere to store them so that they were not underfoot or out of sight.
Next we tried to use the wifi. We could connect to the wifi, but with no connection to the Internet. I contacted Patrick who told me that Virgin was having a technical issue in the neighborhood. FWIW: I went online using my cellular and checked the status of service in the area that showed no service issues in that postal code.
We then noticed that almost every surface of the apartment was covered in dust: shelves, shutters, furniture, baseboards, etc. and in general the apartment was unkempt. Then two major issues: black mold in the shower (at best unsightly to look at and at worst a serious health hazard), and the smell of raw sewage next to the entry that would permeate into the kitchen whenever anyone used the hall bath.
There were other issues, such as the "cleaner" telling us that our towels were in the dryer and that “maybe he would return” to take them out. Two hours later he had not returned and the towels were still as wet as they were when he put them in the dryers. We eventually figured out that the dryer has a water tank that needed to be emptied. Overall, the apartment was in poor condition and almost everywhere we looked we encountered rusty, dusty, moldy or simply unclean surfaces.
The next morning we left and checked into a hotel. Airbnb was great in refunding us for time not spent, and to Patrick's credit he did appear to be concerned with our being satisfied and refunded the cleaning deposit. Patrick was always responsive before and during and after our brief stay, but he doesn't live in London. Even if he is well intended, which I like to think he is, the reality of it is, this apartment needs at minimum a major cleaning and at best a lot of work to put it in rentable condition.
We never met, but Patrick was really efficient and really good to deal with. The apartment is great - and very well located.
Sehr saubere, schöne Wohnung. Der Gastgeber hat uns eine Willkommensnotiz geschrieben und alles nochmals erklärt. Wir waren 14 Leute und das war sehr eng.
The apartment is in a very good position and has everything needed. Some additional attention in the cleaning would be a plus, but overall it was a good experience.
Indications from Patrick very clear and precise.
The apartment was a great solution for our short stay in London, we traveled in a big group of 12 adults + 1 child and stayed in the apartment for 3 nights. The apartment was amazing and is in a great location for exploring London, close to the underground and to shops and restaurants. Easy to arrive and go anywhere in London! The apartment building is secure, modern and staffed. Patrick was also very helpful everytime we need some assistance! Patrick's instructions were spot on and though he was not there personally, he was available by phone and whatsapp if anything was needed. When I did contact him, he was back to me very quickly. 100% recomended!
Très simple d'accès : Modalités et Code envoyés la veille par mail. Contact sur place en cas de problème.
Logement très bien situé, proche d'un métro (Earl's court) desservant bien les principaux points touristiques de la capitale. Restaurants à proximité.
Appart sympa et au calme car ne donnant pas directement sur Cromwell street.
Lit 140 confortable. Cuisine très bien équipée. Lits d'appoint pour les enfants. Nombreux placards. Balcon.
Patrick described the procedure to reach the place and get in carefully, unfortunately the apt was slightly different from the description as not the same fornitures we found.
the neighborood was quite and ok
Hi Marco - thanks for your feedback which we have taken on board. The new furniture photos are in the list of the photos, as the last 5 photos.
Thanks! Kind Regards, Patrick
Great communication from Patrick and easy directions. Apartment is in a good location and quiet as is not on the road front.
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!
