Reviews of this property
Nick was a lovely host. We arrived an hour late and he agreed to wait for us no problem and also let us leave later than discussed. Property was very clean and kitchen looked brand new. We were given fruit, bread, milk and other food items which was a nice surprise. Property close to Vauxhall tube only 10 min walk away. Bedrooms were a good size and beds were comfortable. Nice little tidy back garden with seating area as well. No problem getting the deposit back. Bathroom in need of redoing and needs a new shower but other than that very good property for the money.
We're a family with two teenagers and we cannot recommend Nick's place enough. Nick is very friendly and he had even done some shopping for us on arrival. The bedrooms,(3), are all spacious with good beds. The smallish kitchen/lounge has everything provided. A nice homely feel. Hoveder, maybe the sofa needs replacement in the near future.
We also enjoyed the garden. All in all a great stay for us. Love to come back.
Good apartment with with location just outside Zone 1 with excellent communication to the City. Bus stop outside the door. Bus 2 and 88 will get you to Trafalgar Square, Picadilly or Marble Arch. Else Vauxhall station is 10 min walk up the road.
Clean and basic standard, beds are clean. 3 good bedrooms. Sleeps 6 in a good way. Only one bath and one WC. Could be crowded with teenagers in the family.
Very nice uncomplicated hosts.
Very good bus connection, one is fast in the sights. The apartment is simply furnished and well suited for families.
Sehr netter unkomplizierter Gastgeber.
Sehr gute Busanbindung, man ist schnell bei den Sehenswürdigkeiten. Die Wohnung ist zweckmäßig eingerichtet und auch gut für Familien geeignet.
The apartment has me and my 3 girlfriends loved it.
As written in the previous review, it is very clean, for the 1st breakfast is already all there and the owner Nick is very nice and reliable.
The apartment is very nice. Outside the door there is the bus station, from which one goes directly into the center of the line 2.
Nice Restaurant "Tia Maria" next door / Pub "Vauxhall Griffon", where you can eat very well also, around the corner / very nice cafe opposite / shopping also nearby.
Die Wohnung hat mir und meinen 3 Freundinnen sehr gut gefallen.
Wie bereits in den anderen Bewertungen geschrieben, ist sie sehr sauber, für das 1. Frühstück ist bereits alles vorhanden und der Vermieter Nick ist sehr nett und zuverlässig.
Die Wohnung ist sehr schön gelegen. Direkt vor der Haustür befindet sich die Busstation, von der man mit der Linie 2 direkt in das Zentrum fährt.
Nettes Restaurant "Tia Maria" nebenan /Pub "Vauxhall Griffon", in dem man ebenfalls sehr gut essen kann, um die Ecke / sehr nettes Cafe gegenüber /Einkaufsmöglichkeiten ebenfalls in der Nähe.
Nick was a kind and respectable landlord, it has everything worked out well. The apartment has good transport located. It is big enough for 4-6 persons. The "elegant", well, it was ok, the price-performance ratio.
Nick war ein freundlicher und seriöser Vermieter, es hat alles gut geklappt. Die Wohnung ist verkehrstechnisch gut gelegen. Sie ist für 4-6 Personen ausreichend gross. Das "elegant", na ja, es war o.k., das Preis-Leistungsverhältnis stimmt.
It was fantastic time in London. Nick's apartment is really nice typical english house located just 5 min walk from Underground Everything was well organised and prepared. Nick is very nice person and great host! hope we will meet again!
I can recommend this place for sure!
The apartment was very clean and we liked it very well. The owner was also very nice.
Die Wohnung war sehr sauber und hat uns sehr gut gefallen. Der Vermieter war auch sehr nett.
Nicks apartment is located in the city of London, pretty central near Vauxhall station. You can easily each all major attractions of the city by bus (line 2 or 88) or tube (Victoria line). The apartment itself however, did not 100% meet our expectations.
The positive things:
The apartement is clean, offers three reasonably large bedrooms and a tiny kitchen. Nick is a very friendly person who welcomed us on the first day. There was a bowhl of fresh fruit, some drinks and basic breakfast (toast, jam, butter) for the first day. This made our start in London easier.
The so-so things:
Besides being clean, the apartment is very worn out. The WIMDU description of the apartment is "elegant apartment" which it is not. The floor creaks heavily, the drains in the kitchen and in the bathroom wash basin are pretty clogged so that the water does not flow off properly. The kitchen table is damaged and so are the kitchen shelves. The cushion of the kitchen sofa is severly ripped. And the apartment is rather dark, especially the kitchen room which is located in the basement. These are however just annoyances which can be tolerated. After all, this is not Hilton hotel.
The bad things
The neighbours are loud. Very loud. I'm speaking of "hip-hop music all night until 3 AM" loud. So loud that my daughter (14) was actually able to sing along because you could even understand the lyrics. All four of us had to use ear plugs but even that did not really help because the heavy bass of the music could not be filtered out by the plugs. Even when there's no music from the neighbours, there is a good share of noise from the street (cars, ambulance siren etc.).
All in all:
As it is, the apartment would have been acceptable, given the fact that London IS pretty expensive and that the apartment is at a more or less central location. But the loud noise made the stay very unpleasant. Therefore: only a very limited recommendation from my side.
