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.

Why Rob & Alex chose Somers Town

Some past reviews from our airbnb guests:

"Our family of four (including a 14 and 17 year old) just had a wonderful few days in London, staying at Rob and Alex's place. When booking the place, we really liked the location and the layout. Communication with Rob and Alex was always very smooth and quick. We had issues with our flight over there and they responded immediately and were able to accommodate changes to our trip very easily. The place is really well located, with access to many of London's top spots easily using public transit. When we arrived, the flat was impeccable, It is very nicely decorated, and Alex & Rob had for us plenty of fruits, granola bars, milk, juice, crumpets and eggs to start us off on our vacation. We had a really warm welcome from Alex who explained how everything worked and gave us a couple of really good tips about the city. The layout of the flat is really practical for a family such as ours. There are two main bedrooms and a sofa bed in the living room. As the living room has its own door, each teenager had his own room and a lot of privacy which they welcomed after long days of walking and touring the city. We definitely loved our stay. Highly recommended flat!" Victoria from Ottawa, Canada

"We had an amazing stay at Rob's place! Its less than 10 minutes walking to the nearest underground station, so it was easy to get to other parts of the city. The apartment was clean and inviting, and there was plenty of breakfast food, coffee, and amenities that made it a very comfortable stay." Jenna from Lindenwold, New Jersey, United States

"Rob and Alex were amazing hosts! They anticipated our needs, greeted us on arrival, and provided local tips. The flat was clean, cozy, and convienently located near two bus stops and three tube stations. Our experience was one of the best family holidays we’ve taken and our whole family felt at home and welcome at Alex and Rob’s place." Jamie from Carlisle, Massachusetts, United States

perfect!

  • 5 of 5

Alex and Rob's apartment was absolutely perfect! My husband and I stayed for 5 nights while I was in London for business. It had every last detail you could ask for, from a few food staples in the kitchen (even a frozen pizza and a fresh bottle of water!) to power adaptors to dozens of travel guides/pamphlets. Rob and Alex were always responsive and gave a great tour of the apartment when we arrived(even though we were delayed getting there!). The area around the apartment was quiet and seemed quite safe, but was also central with good transportation connections. I would recommend this lovely, all inclusive apartment to any London tourist or business traveler.

Great central location and well-equipped apartment

  • 5 of 5

We had an excellent stay at Rob & Alex's place. The apartment was very clean and had everything that we needed during out stay. Rob & Alex even ensured that we had milk, bread, bananas etc on arrival, which meant we could have a much welcome cup of tea and a bite to eat.

The apartment is in a great location - it is a very short walk to Regent's Park and the lovely gardens. We walked to the British Museum from the apartment and the tube station and other transport options were incredibly close by.

Thank you Rob & Alex for a fantastic stay and for being so helpful with our check in.

Clean, quiet, well equipped

  • 5 of 5

The flat was exactly as described and shown in the photos. An excellent location for exploring London, close to rail stations, the underground, and two blocks from multiple bus lines.

Alex is a wonderful host. He met my wife and I when we arrived at 22:00 and welcomed us with complete instructions on the flat. He checked in on us (via text) the next day to make sure everything was fine. He was readily available in case we needed anything. The flat was well supplied with all we needed; the kitchen was very well stocked with cooking utensils and with more than the basics for cooking.

The beds were very comfortable. The bathroom is small but fully functional and well supplied with toiletries. The place is cozy - in a good way. I would stay there again (not something I can say about all of the VRBOs we’ve stayed at).

Great flat and great hosts!!!

  • 5 of 5

Our experience staying in this flat was excellent.

The location is great! It has everything you may need for your stay and even more. Rob and Alex have thought about everything you may need, brochures, toiletries, food for breakfast, even power converters!

We only used the metro a couple of times and decided to use the bus instead, they even left us oyster cards to refill and use! You can go anywhere on the bus and the stop is half a block from the flat, so is closer than the metro and you can hop on the second floor of the bus and see the city too.

The London Zoo is walking distance from the flat and highly recommended if you have kids (we grown ups really enjoyed it too!).

I only have nice things to say about the flat and our stay there, Rob and Alex really make you feel at home.

Wonderful flat, great location and responsive hosts!

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time in Rob and Alex's flat on Stanhope. Rob and Alex were great hosts. They were very responsive and helpful. The flat had so many extras that made our stay much easier including charging adapters, fliers about London, oyster cards we could reload, 2 sets of keys and there was even basic condiments in the kitchen and toiletries.

The flat was very clean and the decor was cute and London themed. There was a pub across the street that served breakfast and a little market. The location of the flat was great. It was easy walk to Camden Market and public transportation.

My only complaint, which had nothing to do with our hosts, was how loud it was at night with the pub patrons outside. We visited in the middle of the heat wave, so the windows were open at night, and it happened to fall during the world cup. I'm not sure if it's always loud, or if it was just the timing for our stay.

I highly recommend this flat and our hosts. We had a wonderful time!

Great location & friendly, hospitable hosts

  • 5 of 5

The apartment was comfortable and in easy walking distance from bus, metro, train, and Camden markets. We had everything we needed, and more. Rob and Alex were so patient and friendly. They were easy to communicate with and very accommodating when our flights and arrival time went awry.
