Easy going world traveller, formerly living in London, UK, now returned to California
My sister and I spent 10 days in David's apartment and enjoyed it a lot. The flat is as described very spacious and modern -so no carpets in the bathroom or the UK-tipical separate hot and cold water taps in the sink!
David was there when we arrived. He was super friendly and quickly explained us the most important things, but also left us a note with the internet pass word etc. A nice feature not mentioned in the description is that you can directly play your i tunes music on David's Hi-Fi system over the wireless connection.
We liked the Farringdon area a lot. It is a great mix of very central (we walked to many places fromn there) but also very livable (a quiet road with food shops, pubs and restaurants within walking distance). I would immediately recommend David's place to my friends. The only reason to hesitate is really if you are a bit fussy about cleanliness. The flat could definitely have done with a bit of cleaning or hovering.
When we had a sniff at the sheats we realised they hadn't been changed. Luckily we arrived in the morning and just popped everything in to the washing machine (which is a tumbler at the same time -how practical is that!), so the problem was solved by the time we needed the beds.
Everything was super unfussy and natural (like we'd just use up his milk/tea and leave the rest of ours when we left). We had a great time in David's flat and felt totally at home.
Great guest. would love to have them back anytime.
David was a fantastic guest! He was great with communication before his arrival, and he left the flat in perfect condition on our return. He was a pleasure to meet with and super friendly. I'd highly recommend him to any guest!
