Guestbook comments from the owner

Review from Anthony Maglio

This was my first experience with Airbnb, and it was the absolute best I could have possibly hoped for. Everything about my stay was nothing short of incredible. The apartment is beautiful; exactly as described in the listing. It's clean, cozy, in a great neighborhood, and has everything one might need - including a terrace! The only thing better than the actual apartment is the owner/host, Meghana. Being brand new to Airbnb, I had no idea what I was doing. Every time I had a question, Meghana's communication was not only quick, but also extremely thorough. She helped to make my stay at her place as comfortable and as stress-free as possible, for which I cannot thank her enough. For anyone looking to spend time in London, this beautiful apartment - hosted by one of the most accommodating and helpful people I've ever met - is a guaranteed winner.

Perfect for exploring London

  • 5 of 5

Great place for people wanting to get a taste for london. We wanted to stay somewhere that would introduce us to london on a budget, and this did exactly that. Two of us stayed here comfortably and we're able to enjoy Kensington, Chelsea and fulham by foot, very easily.

The proximity to the tube gave us easy access to greater London and made seeing all the sights very simple. Worked out great!

2 Sterne nur aufgrund der guten Lage!

  • 2 of 5

Das Apartment liegt nur wenige Minuten von der District Line, und W-Lan, das funktioniert. Das sind die einzigen Positiva.

Die Wohnung an sich wäre ganz nett, wenn sich die Vermieterin mehr Mühe damit gegeben hätte:

im Kühlschrank angebrochene Nahrungsmittel,

Kaffeetassen mit Kaffeeresten,

Asche in der Toilette (nicht herunter gespült),

im Badezimmer die Fliesenfugen verschimmelt,

die Waschmaschine kaputt,

der E-Herd extrem langsam (das Aufheizen von Wasser dauert eine gesamte Spielfilmlänge!!),

die Betten nicht gemacht und zerwühlt (als ob jemand vor kurzem hier geschlafen hätte),

die beworbene Terrasse (die wahrscheinlich für viele interessant ist) voll von Taubenkot und unbenützbar- und kein Besen weit und breit.

Man arrangiert sich mit den Gegebenheiten und macht das Beste daraus, aber wirklich zufrieden wird man damit nicht. Eigentlich sehr schade!
