The home sharing was best choice for my London biztrip. It will be best choice for the person who is sick and tired of small and stuffy hotel room. The unit was tidy and huge for 2 person. WiFi speed is enough good. The metro station is just walking distance. It makes my tour perfect. There is no swimming pool or gym but it is near the Park. The Kitchen make saving money as well. At the last.. Thank you for welcome drink:)
The location of the apt is fantastic. 3 min walk to Gloucester Road tube station. It's in walking distance to Natural History Museum, Kensington Gardens, Royal Albert Hall. There are many restaurants in this area and a big supermarket at the tube stations. It's on quiet street. No traffic noice.
Apartment itself works well for a short stay. It has everything you need for your visit. It's clean, enough of space for family of four. Free wifi and lots of TV channels to choose from if one wishes to watch something.
The owner Lina is friendly and helpful. This was our 2nd time in this apt and wouldn't hesitate to choose again if we travel to London.
This is the second time we stayed here because we love this place! It looks exactly like the descriptions! We love the large living space, very clean, good hot shower and fast wifI.
We can't say enough how grateful we are to the wonderful host! She responded all our messages immediately, waited patiently for us. She is very friendly, she has sent some really useful information about travels, details of the flat, recommended restaurants etc, the best host we ever had! The location is just perfect! We got everything we needed! Extremely convenient!
We absolutely love this place! It is such a germ! Competitive rates in a perfect location for our perfect holiday. This apartment is exactly how it described, very clean and tidy, everything was in excellent working condintiona. The host is amazingly accommodating! She is very responsive, kind and sincere. She even waited for us till 1am due to our flight delays. We were even provided free coffee, tea, and dry foods, wow! She also recommended some great places for dining. I definitely will stay here again! Hard to find anything better than this! Thank you very much! You made our stay in London exceptionally marvellous!
This place is hardly worth 1/2 the price. Cold, drafty, skeezy linens, and bedding. The lofts are less that 5feet tall, apartment is actually a small studio with very little by way of comfortable accommodation. The hostess was short and kurt, unwilling to assist when the place was obviously substandard. So many better places for rent, shouldn't be allowed to stay on VRBO without accurate description and a price to match the low quality and dimmiutive space.
the house is comfortable and the location is very good,close to supermarkets and restaurants.The ceiling is quite low in the bedrooms upstairs and you have to pay attenction to your head.It s been a nice weekend.
Safe and secure neighbourhood.
Right in the middle of affluent area of London, South Kensington.
5 minutes walk to musuems and 8 mins to Hyde Park.
3 minutes walk to Gloucester Road tube station.
