The apt itself and the location are AAA+++. 5 Minutes from the underground in a very nice neighborhood that is close to everything you could matter! 2. Peter helped us a lot before we arrived, in receiving football tickets for us, and with any other tips and help while we stayed. he is really the ideal host. It was a great pick - highly recommend !

Fabio is a top host, helpful and providing excellent tips and ideas. These included ways to see London by ferry and from above, theatre (the 50 seat Finborough Theatre, nearby) and places to eat. The flat was great for our needs, with three of us staying - 2 in the bedroom and one on the couch/bed. The place is spacious enough so we did not feel crowded. The kitchen is good although with fairly basic equipment, but enough for our needs. The place was very clean and Fabio was also helpful with access and very welcoming. This place will be top of our list for future stays in London. Recommended.
