Nice location but poor conditions made the stay disappointing.

  • 2 of 5

Good location, quiet street with no outlet, quiet neighbors. Comfortable bed.

The place was just cleaned but we saw dust on the floor and our socks were dirty from walking around. Dirty tea pot, didn't use. Small second sink with a disposal was covered by a wet magazine under a cutting board. When lifted, saw bugs under it. Left it intact and informed the host. He was surprised to hear but offered no action.

Has a small, light weight drying rack with a broken hinge. It always seemed on the verge of collapse. Two bath towels consume the drying rack, tethering under the weight.

The kitchen has a fridge, microwave, oven, gas stove. There's a coffee press. Previous guests left food which I would think a good cleaning person would purge ... 2 opened bottles of wine, cereal boxes open and dried up, old crackers. Not food anyone would ever eat.

There were no kitchen towels, no washcloths, no hand towels, no kitchen towels, one stained bath matt found in a closet. We had one roll of paper towels in the kitchen with about 10 sheets on it. No backup supplies. No hand soap. Asked for another roll of paper towels, got none.

There's no power outlets in the bathroom. No outlet near any mirror and no extension cord for included hair dryer.

The bathroom has a wooden floor, damaged by water. It kept getting wet, no bath matt. The shower door is missing the handle. The shower walls and glass were mildewed at the bottom. The shower floor never dried during our 6 day stay. Sometimes a second shower is cold. The toilet tank sometimes takes a while to refill.

There's heating in the upstairs but the only heat in the downstairs is a towel warmer in the bathroom. Expect cold downstairs where the bedroom and bath are.

The host provided no instructions, no introductions. Via email, I was told the key is under the matt. Later I got an email regarding light switches. Dark upstairs, ok downstairs.

The heating mechanism is not apparent. Had to ask for instructions which were vague.

No instructions for the TV. Requires understanding how it's wired. Very few channels anyway.

Still no ironing board.

Host was not interested in taking any action to make this better, like provide more paper towels.

We've rented flats on many trips over the years and never had an experience like this where the host showed no interest in engaging to make things better. Be sure to ask a lot of questions and don't expect much from this host.

Owner's Response: I can only assume that this bitter and untruthful review comes from the fact that you got your dates wrong and only informed me on the morning of your booked arrival date that you wanted to change and asked for a refund which I didn't allow you because I had turned down 2 bookings for those dates. I have had nothing but good reviews for this property and if a guest has had a problem I have done my best to sort it for them ASAP as stated in some of the other reviews. I realised soon after taking your booking that you were going to be trouble. You sent me at least 15 emails with questions and demands. When you arrived at the apartment you sent me complaint after complaint. I stopped reading them after you complained that "there was a shirt hanging in one of the 6 built in wardrobes". I have skimmed through your review and immediately picked up on some inconsistencies; you say there was no bath mat but found one in the storage. You never once complained about lack of heating while at the apartment which I believe was working perfectly well for the duration of your stay. There is no water damage in the bathroom. The shower door does not have a handle because that is part of the design There were both hand towels and kitchen towels in one of the wardrobes downstairs. My cleaner may not have put them out. I go out of my way to help my guests who are reasonable. It was clear from the beginning that you are not reasonable. Very few properties in the U.K. Have electricity outlets in the bathroom My apartment is not a dirty place and I resent your lies. If the packets of food annoyed you, you could have put them in the bin provided. According to my cleaner you didn't put anything in the bin. He told me he had never seen the apartment in such a state after a stay.

Absolutely the quietest apt. ever in any city. And the best location.

We thoroughly enjoyed our visit in every possible way. The space is very generous. Only minor issue is figuring out lighting and technical details that are peculiar to English construction and electrical wiring.. A "tenant's manual" would be helpful. We'll definitely return.

The location was fantastic. Quiet neighborhood close to everything. The apartment was clean and comfortable. Great king size bed, wonderful shower and a nice vacation kitchen.

The unit needs some electrical work and Americans need to know that washcloths and hand towels are not a thing in London. (Bring them with you). Owner should care enough to type out instructions for light switches, TV operations, and washer/dryer operations. Also, an iron without an ironing board is almost useless.

This rental is hard to beat for location as this is a great area. (Don't judge by the Baker St/Marylebone tube station area. Go south east a few streets and the shopping and restaurants are hard to beat anywhere in London.

Fine flat in Marylebone

  • 5 of 5
Verified Stay

We stayed in this flat for six weeks last fall. The location is quite convenient to the Tube, Marylebone High Street, and Regent's Park -- all within a ten minute walk. The flat, located on a quiet street, has a spacious living room and kitchen upstairs and a similarly sized bedroom and bathroom/shower downstairs. The king bed is very comfortable and the large dining table is convenient for work or meals. New clothes washer/dryer. Proximity to the many neighborhood restaurants is a real plus. Brian and Juliet were helpful getting settled and with questions.

We loved the Marylebonne neighborhood. The flat was was on an amazingly quiet street and we were able to walk to many destinations. The kitchen did not really lend itself to cooking more than breakfast as there were very few provisions provided. But there were certainly wonderful restaurants in the area.

Brian was very pleasant and accommodating. I would highly recommend this flat!

Owner's Response: Thank you for the review. I'm happy you enjoyed your stay. I generally don't provide much in the way of kitchen provisions as I have always found that most people tend to eat out when staying in Marylebone. As you correctly pointed out there are amazing eateries all around the apartment. There is also a Waitrose supermarket less than 5 minutes walk from the apartment so if guests do want to cook for themselves it is easy to pick up all that they would need. I do take your point though, and will place some tea, coffee, salt pepper etc into the apartment. Thanks again for the review. Brian
