We've been a last weekend in this apartment 4 comfortably. The decoration and makes the temperature in the house are welcome. This clean and lacks detail, but we did not use anything in the kitchen is so cookers as microwave, kettle, cutlery etc ...
Last week the owner (who is super friendly and attentive) sent us an email with all necessary information about the city and some that are helpful as taxi numbers, nearest pharmacy etc.
Definitely coming back
Hemos estado un el pasado fin de semana en este apartamento 4 personas cómodamente. Tanto la decoración como la temperatura que hace en la casa son agradables. Esta limpio y no le falta detallé, aunque no hemos utilizado nada de la cocina tiene tanto hornillos, como microhondas, calentador de agua, cubiertos etc...
La semana anterior el dueño (que es súper amable y atento)nos envío un email con todas las indicaciones necesarias y algunas sobre la ciudad que son de gran ayuda como teléfonos de taxis, farmacia cercana etc.
Sin duda alguna volveremos
Owner extremely available for any need, perfect as quality / price, in a central and well servita.Confermo the presence of a fish & chips (yummy :-) downstairs that can create problems for the smells that come when their stuff is working.
proprietario disponibilissimo per qualunque necessità,posto perfetto come qualità/prezzo,in zona centrale e ben servita.Confermo la presenza di un fish&chips (buonissimo :-) sotto casa che può creare problemi per gli odori che provengono quando la loro cucina è funzionante.
I received an email from the owner a week before the stay with very useful information about the apartment and its surroundings. The apartment is located 10 minutes away from Barbican station and there is a bus stop for lines 4 and 56 a few steps away. There are also supermarkets, restaurants and shops nearby. The apartment was spacious and very nice decorated, but it could be cleaner, as there were many crumbs on the floor and some items in the bathroom and kitchen needed a deep cleaning. Overall it was a good experience and with good value for money.
The apartment is good, is very well situated, clean and cosy. It is small but big enough for 2-4 people. The only problem is the lingering smell of fried food that comes from the restaurant (fish and chips) situated below the apartment.
Apart from that, I highly recommend it!
El apartamento está muy bien conectado con el centro. Hay una parada de autobús justo delante de la puerta y el metro está a un paseo. Nosotros cogíamos el bus.El apartamento está en una zona tranquila. Para cuatro personas es un poco justo, la mesa que hay para comer es solo para dos personas y solo hay dos sillas. Muy cerca hay donde comprar comida y también hay sitios para comer o llevarte la comida hecha al apartamento.
Mark's "Elegant centrale London Home" is maybe not so elegant, but very close to Barbican Underground Station, it was a very central and very convenient for our shopping and sightseeing tour to London. Mark's house/flat is across the street from Smithfield Market. It was a 24/7 busy place and city-like noisy all day and all night. The flat has a excellent roof terrasse, with we enjoyed very much. There was some problems with toilet and bath, but the communication was good and Mark's plumber fixed everything very quickly
There were three of us travelling for business, my sister and I (we are
business partners) and a male colleague. We choose the house in Long
Lane as it has two bedrooms and two bathrooms, which we needed travelling in
three and with a male colleague.
The house in Long Lane was not only very dirty, but we were missing
towels for the three of us. We noticed this when we arrived to the house before dinner time, as we wanted to have a shower before going out for dinner with customers. We sent a message to the owner, who was out of the city but he has been very good and fast in responding. He kindly offered to either go and bring towels from another apartment he has in Goswell street or to move to this accommodation. When we arrived in the apartment in Goswell street we saw that there where 3 shower towels and 1 hand towel, still really not enough for the three of us. This apartment has only 1 bedroom and 1 bathroom, therefore the third person would have to sleep on the sofa. Because of all these changes, we were running late for dinner with customers therefore we did not have time to go back to the first house. My sister and I decided to stay in the apartment in Goswell Street, which at least was cleaner that the house in Long lane. Our colleague (he is a 43 years old manager, 1,85 m tall) could not sleep on the sofa, and considering that we had only 1 bathroom and few towels, he had to go and find a hotel nearby.
This caused an extra cost to us for this short trip.
Beside this, the even more disappointing thing happened yesterday morning,
when I was having a shower and in the middle of it the water stopped... no
water, hot or cold was coming out from the shower, so I had to rinse myself
with water that my sister was passing me from out of the shower!
I took some photos of the shower machine and informed the owner when back home, but had no reply, not even apologies. Unfortunately, this has been a very bad experience, especially as we were travelling for business. The cost of the apartment plus the hotel for our colleague turned out to be very expensive, we are very disappointed for this and for the lack of response.
