About Rob & Alex
I'm Rob, originally from Brasil but living in London for more than a decade, and Alex is British but spent most of his early life in France and South Africa. We both love traveling and since starting to use online bnb a couple of years ago, we decided to become part of this amazing community as a hosts as well as guests, allowing us to share our experiences from both sides, and in the hope that people will enjoy our pad as much as we do. As guests, we are very easy going, clean, respectful of the house rules, treating every place we stay as if it was our home, and often reliant on our hosts to point us in the right direction or suggest the best places to go and things to do. We’ve always had a great experience as guests, and want to ensure we offer the same as hosts. If you are visiting the country for the first time, we know how challenging it can be and we will try our best to make the experience as smooth as possible. If you don’t see the dates you are looking for, let us know and we will do our best to accommodate you. We have recently refurbished the flat, and trust everything will be to your liking, but it is a home, not a show home, so not everything is brand new but make yourselves comfortable. We hope you enjoy your visit to London and staying in our cozy central pad as we love to live here, in the middle of this vibrant city. Rob & Alex
Why Rob & Alex chose Central London
Some past reviews from our airbnb guests: "What a gem in the heart of London! This is one of the best Airbnb places we stayed at. It is sunny, central and extremely comfortable with a spectacular view of London. There are public transport and cafes at your doorstep as well as many of London's attractions within walking distance. Rob is a fantastic host. He is both thoughtful and helpful and goes well beyond his call of duty to ensure your comfort. We are definitely going to be back". Jenny & Jay, Australia, Mar 17 "Rob and Alex's place was wonderful. Very easy to get around via the tube or walking and an excellent view. Rob was great and met me at the train station when I arrived, making the checking process exceptionally smooth". Travis, USA, Mar 17 "Rob and Alex did everything to make us feel welcome and to accommodate to our needs (arrival and departure time, info regarding trains between the flat and the airports, tips on London's life, and last but not least umbrellas included !). Central (zone 1), cosy, well equipped and with a very nice view on London. Rob and Alex's flat is the ideal place to stay and discover London". Yvan, France, Jan 17 "Really great flat in a perfect location - so close to everything. Rob and Alex couldn't have been more welcoming hosts. Would definitely stay again". Keziah Australia, Jan 17· "Rob's flat was great! What views! Central, walkable, tons of really good quality restaurants and bars surrounded the flat. Public transportation by bus and tube was all around and easy to get to. Rob and Alex were exceedingly accommodating and so thoughtful. My husband and I totally enjoyed our stay and highly recommend Rob's place". Kassandra USA, Jan 17 "We came to visit London for 3 days and chose Rob & Alex's apartment as our base.

Delivered as described ...
We had a nice time, although would not choose this apt. again - we got what we wanted, (savings, long quiet breakfast, some home cooking) but *due to our lack of experience* didn’t appreciate how the cramped space was and not appropriate for our older physiques! Otherwise the dwelling is obviously much loved by the helpful hosts Rob and Alex, and I expect they miss it when they have guests. London is a wonder and this neighborhood is marvelous!
Rob & Alex do a great job
Rob and Alex are great hosts. At check in, they not only went through everything for the apartment, but walked me and my friends to the tube station.
The apartment has unbeatable views, is furnished with everything you need, and Rob and Alex have all kinds of information about the busses, the neighborhood, and restaurants (Time Out surveys). The neighborhood is convenient to a tube station, busses, and is a 15 minute easy walk to the British Museum.
As a single woman, I felt very safe in the neighborhood. There is a co op market and several coffee shops nearby. Also close are a couple of streets full of restaurants.
Really, everything you want in a place to stay.
Lovely time in London
My wife and I really enjoyed our stay here at the flat in Central London. Rob & Alex were very attentive to the few needs we had and were kind enough to let us check in earlier in the morning upon our arrival.
The only negative we had was that the bed was quite uncomfortable. Otherwise we really enjoyed our stay and the view!
Alex and Rob were very easy to communicate with and they even checked in part way through our stay to make sure everything was going smoothly. The view was as great as advertised. Busses were convenient and the nearest tube was about a 6 minute walk away. Well outfitted for 2 people with a kitchen and bath. Both were a little small but worked great. Easy to make small meals for a couple of people, The bath towels were wonderful-big and fluffy. Not much room to put luggage but did have storage (drawers) to unpack some things into and some hooks to hang coats up with. On a small short street so not super easy to find but the cabbie had better luck with Mullen Tower than he did with the address. Once you know where it's at, it is pretty easy. Not plush but very comfortable. We could easily stay here again.
Host with the Most
Alex was the most helpful and accessible person! Available for questions, lovely flat with great views of London on two sides,
This place is on the 10th floor on a quiet lane but a three minute walk to all kinds of food and bus stops. The flat has three wonderful thorough guides books the owners have created and these cover food, locale and just about anything you could think of. We came on a friend’s recommendation who stayed here a few years ago. It’s great, oh and full of sunshine!!
Great flat in a central location
The flat was comfortable and well-equipped. The views were as amazing as promised! Close to the tube and well-served by buses. Good restaurants within walking distance. The hosts, Alex and Rob, were welcoming and friendly, gave us good directions, and provided lots of information about the apartment and the area. Can't ask for much more!
