Guestbook comments from the owner

Lara’s flat was terrific, my wife had meetings at UCL and it was super convenient.



Lara was very thorough, and reliable, met me at the flat at an awfully late hour, and returned my damage deposit via wire transfer in a timely manner. All in all, if you need a comfortable base in central London, you can’t ask for a better spot. It is supremely quiet, and I felt entirely safe leaving my 11 year old daughter there for periods of time. She was also helpful with other advice, and you should have no fears.



Enjoy your visit to London!

Nice location close to underground and British Museum

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed staying at Anna's place. She provided great directions and greeted us at the apartment. Apartment has everything that one might need, we used the washer/dryer when we stayed there and watched a couple of world cup soccer games. The location is very convenient, close to a variety of restaurants on the next street and grocery stores at the shopping mall nearby. We were very pleased with the guest parking arrangement, as it would have been very difficult otherwise to find a parking on the street. Overall we enjoyed our stay. Thanks!

Clean, spacious and quiet. The location is wonderful . The stairwell is depressing and smells

  • 3 of 5

The apartment was clean and spacious. It would be nice to have a comfortable hair in the living room so more than two people could relax. One person must sit on a kitchen chair with two on the sofa.

Owner's Response: Dear Guests, I am happy that you have found the apartment clean, spacious, quiet and in a wonderful location. Thank you for pointing out the sitting arrangement in the lounge. I will add an additional soft chair so more people can sit comfortably. As for the stairwell, the light lilac paint gets easily marked, it is redecorated only every five years and is arranged through the Peabody Trust management company. I don't have the authority to make any changes. It is functional and the floors are mopped weekly, but a carpet would give it a soft, friendly touch. As for various cooking smells coming out of the apartments, again that's out my control. Fortunately the apartment is not affected.
