Reviews of this property
We, 3 persons were 3 nights as a guest and are very satisfied! The location is great, very close to the River Thames, the area is 24 hrs. Under camera surveillance and relatively quiet for London. The room was immaculate in order and clean and the hosts very helpful, friendly and accommodating. Our airline lost luggage my two girlfriends, but since we did not want to spend the whole time at the property, but wanted to see London, our host has agreed to take the suitcases in reception. A huge relief! Thank you so much for this and for the stay! We will definitely be back next year! It was a great time! Thank-You
Wir, 3 Personen, waren 3 Nächte lang zu Gast und sind sehr zufrieden! Die Lage ist super, ganz in der Nähe der Themse, die Gegend ist 24 Std. kameraüberwacht und für London relativ ruhig. Das Zimmer war tiptop in Ordnung und sauber und die Gastgeber sehr hilfsbereit, freundlich und zuvorkommend. Unsere Fluggesellschaft hat die Koffer meiner zwei Freundinnen verloren, aber da wir nicht die ganze Zeit in der Unterkunft verbringen wollten, sondern London sehen wollten, hat sich unser Host bereit erklärt, die Koffer in Empfang zu nehmen. Eine sehr große Erleichterung! Vielen, vielen Dank dafür und für den Aufenthalt! Wir kommen nächstes Jahr garantiert wieder! Es war eine tolle Zeit! Dankeschön
Séjour très agréable dans un quartier sympathique, un peu excentré du centre mais facile d'accès, hôte également très gentil, nous avons apprécié notre séjour et y retournerons volontiers.
Sehr netter Vermieter, bekamen bei Ankunft gleich Tee serviert und konnten auch am Abreisetag die Koffer bis zur Abreise abends bei ihm lassen. Leider war das Bad/ Toilette nicht so sauber. Das Mobiliar wurde zwischen Buchung und Ankunft geändert, so dass wir statt einem Doppelbett nun ein Etagenbett hatten, wobei das eine Bett etwas kürzer als 2m war. Pool ist im Nachbarhaus und konnte aufgrund von Reparaturarbeiten nicht genutzt werden.

Excellent location close to London main attractions. We have walked everywhere and it you want to take tube, Leicester Square station is literally one minute. On arrival we were welcomed by Ns Yang. All easy and friendly. The flat was clean and had all things we needed, including wifi. It was also very convenient on departure as we could keep our luggage until the departure timeWe had a great stay and I highly recommend this flat for anyone visiting Longon
Walking distance to Oxford street and cozy Covent Garden.
Nice host and easy to communicate with over email.
The apartment was clean and exactly like in the add and the host was easy to contact. I recomend this host
We (2 adults, 3 children) had a great stay in London! The communication with the landlady has worked perfectly from the start, the location of the apartment can not be beat, you are right in the middle and can reach almost all the sights on foot well. That there in the middle of a big city at night is loud, we did not find unusually :-) We come back in any case!
Wir (2 Erwachsene, 3 Kinder) hatten einen großartigen Aufenthalt in London! Die Kommunikation mit der Vermieterin hat von Anfang an perfekt geklappt, die Lage der Wohnung ist nicht zu toppen, man ist mitten drin und kann fast alle Sehenswürdigkeiten zu Fuß gut erreichen. Dass es mitten in einer Großstadt nachts laut ist, fanden wir nicht ungewöhnlich :-) Wir kommen auf alle Fälle wieder!
I will make a brief summary:
The best apartment location. In the heart of London nightlife district and movement, leading some noise. No trust in the pictures because it is not as nice as it looks. TV does not work, there is a comfortable sofa for 4 people well, the 5th maldormirá a 60x90 chair that if you are lucky to get pillows and cushions as a mattress. When we had a leak, the kitchen stool had 3 inches of water that we never knew where it came from and despite being warned that our flight arrived at Stansted at 22:00 and arrive at 00:00 or so, we reproached wearing half an hour waiting, we started well !, that's why I understand that money does not correspond as 958 euros for 3 nights it seems excessive. In our case we will only sleep and shower, then we get along not so good conditions that were offered. That if, if you are going to do the same as us, ie the shortest possible time to spend there, the location is perfect, metro station 20 meters away and 5 minutes from everything. We hope that if reservais, you may know what we've found us.
Haré un breve resumen:
Lo mejor del apartamento la ubicación. En pleno centro de Londres, zona de marcha y movimiento, lo que conlleva un poco de ruido. No fiaros de las fotos porque no es tan bonito como parece. La tele no funciona, no hay un sofá cómodo, para 4 personas bien, la 5ª maldormirá en un sillon de 60x90 eso si tiene suerte de ponerse las almohadas y cojines a modo de colchon. Cuando llegamos habia una gotera, el taburete de la cocina tenia 3 dedos de agua que nunca supimos de donde salia y pese haber avisado que nuestro vuelo llegaba a Standsted a las 22:00 y que llegaríamos a las 00:00 más o menos, nos echaron en cara que llevaba media hora esperando, vamos que empezamos bien!, por eso entiendo que calidad precio no se corresponde ya que 958 euros para 3 noches me parece excesivo. En nuestro caso solo vamos a dormir y ducharnos, por tanto llevamos bien las no tan buenas condiciones que se ofertaron. Eso si, si vais a hacer lo mismo que nosotros, es decir pasar el mínimo tiempo posible alli, la ubicación es perfecta, parada de metro a 20 metros y a 5 minutos de todo. Esperamos que si reservais, sepais lo que nos hemos encontrado nosotros.
We were a group of three girls, and our first day was horrible because the day before travelling wimdu told us that our reservation was cancelled and they couldnt find another place to stay till next day, so we were with our suitcases in London all day eith no where to go. But finally they worked properly and find us somewhere to stay, at Hui's house. She is very nice and let you do whatever you want to. The place is very nice and it is located in a good part of London, pacefully and safe. So finally we were very happy woth Wimdu work and with our host. The only thing that they have to change is that host are not allowed to cancelled the reservation in the last moment.
