Guestbook comments from the manager

Hi Babs, we had a great time and the flat was just lovely - great location, well presented etc. Only comment is that people un familiar with London or from abroad might appreciate a bar of soap and a couple of tea bags on arrival just while they get used to the surrounding area and shops but we were fine as we'd brought both and knew the area. Many thanks, Lydia

Nice little apartmant - great location

  • 4 of 5
Great little and cosy apartment with a good and helpfull landlord. The apartment is located in central London close to 2 tube stations, so it is very easy to get around.
The apartment could use some more furniture.

Good location, Good Price, Hard uncomfortable bed

  • 2 of 5
THE GOOD:
1) Babs, the flat owner, was there at the pre-determined time
2) The heat works perfectly
3) There is enough storage space in the bedroom for a short stay
4) Public transportation (buses and underground) make it very easy to move around London without complications
5) Very quiet neighbours

THE BAD:
1) If you are not used to hard beds, you will find it extremely uncomfortable to sleep and will wake up with a sore body (we took daily Voltaren to deal with this).
2) Although we contacted Babs to ask if he could do something about the bed, we never got a reply during the 11 days that we spent there.
3) The toilet wobbles when one sits on it (Babs is aware of this problem but has not taken care of it).
4) The way the shower is positioned and lack of a shower curtain, can leave you with a very wet floor unless you shower with extreme caution.
5) The washer / dryer combo works well for things that do not need to be ironed, but not for anything else
6) The iron in the flat does not work

The property is comfortable enough (except for the bed) but do not expect luxury. It does not offer internet, so if you get an internet bungle to connect to your laptop or simply hotspot the internet connection on your phone, the reception quality will vary depending on how many of your neighbours are around. The surrounding area is mainly lower middle class, safe enough to walk at any time of day, and with many fast food-like restaurants around.

So, if you are looking to save money, a convenient location and are not bothered by hard beds, than this could be the place for you.

Great flat at great price

  • 5 of 5
The flat is just as shown on pictures - it consists of two rooms and a small kitchen on the ground floor of a house, with windows towards the yard. It's clean, warm and nice. The location is just 3-4 minutes walk to the tube station of Stepney Green, alternatively there are buses to the center as well. I stayed here for 10 days and I liked almost everything. Just make sure that you leave the place in order.

Bril

  • 5 of 5
The apartment is Bril! We were so thankful to Babs for his help when booking and his flexibility. Great that we had a personal welcome and a contact number should we have required help during our stay. We loved being able to walk to everything we needed and have tube station so near for getting around London. A most peaceful, affordable and yet convenient location.

Convenient & Comfortable
  • 5 of 5
This apartment was very comfortable, clean and convenient to tube and local supermarket. The owner has thought of quite a few small extras which were appreciated, local maps, coffee, sugar and manuals. We were pleasantly surprised and thought this apartment very good value for the quality of accommodation compared to others we were looking at.

Great first experience

  • 5 of 5
My husband and I were taking our first trip back to London since our move back home to the US. We were eager to find better accommodations than the standard hotel or traveler hostel due to the length of our trip and our familiarity with the city. At the same time, since we were very familiar with the City - as we had lived in London for 5 years - we wanted a comfortable experience, not the typical tourist trap or expensive, run of the mill hotel chains.

I did a lot of research – visited many websites and considered many of our favorite locations before coming across this apartment. It is one my favorite locations in London. The location is quite central to major attractions, close to several transport options and has several shops/restaurants just around the corner. I contacted Babs who responded promptly, indicated availability and explained the process for booking. Babs was professional, polite and responsive.This was the first time we rented a private apartment and we were a bit anxious as to what to expect – however, Babs made everything easy. He offers his guests a wealth of helpful information – about the apartment itself and about general tourism in London, restaurant recommendations, travel tips, the works. When we arrived at the apartment, everything was just as Babs had described.

The apartment itself was ideal. It was great to have a full kitchen at our disposal – we were able to walk to the local supermarkets and purchase food and drink to prepare ourselves according to our time table. My husband and I were truly happy with our choice here. Overall, I give Babs and his apartment the highest marks. We absolutely plan to stay at this apartment again when we return. The biggest problem we have is that we've been spoiled now and recommend this apartment without hesitation.
