Modern, Spacious and easy to get to

  • 5 of 5

We stayed there the weekend of 27th Nov 2015. This was a very last minute booking as we had been let down by another property in the area. We were treated and communicated with very well through emails upon enquiring and going on to book.

We were booking for 8 people, (4 couples) which is hard to find at such last minute. Raquib was very helpful and ensure the booking process went smooth.

We met with Saiful upon arrival. I'm sure you would struggle to find a warmer greeting than what greeted us. He was very informative and put us at ease straight away. As soon as we jumped off the tube, I told Saiful we were inbound. Without question or hesitation he agreed to meet us at the apartment straight away (he actually beat us there)

The apartment from the outside admittedly doesn't look too appealing, but please persist because what greets you inside is a lovely warm and very modern apartment.

The lounge is like an Aladdin's cave of modern technology, topped off by the amazing projector screen and lovely touch of the mood lighting and star gazing lights.

There is a downstairs bedroom which is big enough for grown adults, and 3 bedrooms upstairs, two of which are really well sized and one that is a pod room, but sufficient for adults for a weekend. The bathroom is a high standard like the rest of the house. The apartment totally lives up to what you need for a weekend or week.

We were left with Tea, Milk and coffee and plenty of condiments including the stuff you wouldn't necessarily bring with you ( dishwasher tabs, cooking oil, etc) And of course the apartment was very clean and tidy upon arrival.

It is located 10 mins away from the tube, and 5 mins away from some nice bars and pubs. There are shops 30 seconds away for beer, food, snacks.

A very useful feature of the location is its closeness to the Boris Bikes. These are literally on your door step and an amazing way of seeing London.

Another BONUS was our friends who travelled in cars had free parking for the weekend after 18:30 Friday. This makes is very easy to get to as its outside the Congestion Zone, and saves having to worry about parking if you decide to drive.

Overall we used the apartment for what you would on a weekend city break, sleeping, eating and chilling and would definitely recommend it!

Ottimo alloggio per Londra

  • 4 of 5

Per la cerimonia di laurea di nostro figlio siamo arrivati a Londra in 14 parenti. Abbiamo alloggiato presso l'appartamento (con ingresso indipendente e cortile interno) di Mr. Raquib e lo abbiamo trovato molto confortevole, adatto per un così gran numero di ospiti. Innanzitutto Mr. Raquib è una persona molto cordiale e disponibile: ci ha accolto con grande cortesia. L'abitazione, sita di fronte ad una caratteristica Chiesa inglese, si trova vicino Old Street Station, la zona è tranquilla ed il traffico quasi inesistente. Abbiamo trovato biancheria pulita così come l'abitazione, recentemente ristrutturata e spaziosa per lo standard inglese. Molto originale l'illuminazione di ogni stanza, che crea allegria, con tutto il confort necessario. Siamo rimasti molto soddisfatti del soggiorno in Old Street.

Owner's Response: Massimo and his family were really lovely people. They were warm, bubbly and enthusiastic about their trip to London and about my apartment. They took good care of my apartment and left it neat and tidy. They were also considerate towards my neighbours and didn't make any noise or fuss. I would happily rent to them again in future and have no hesitation in recommending them to other hosts.

Owner's Response: Nicola and his family and friends were in London on their first visit to London together. They were a really warm, friendly and enthusiastic group it was a pleasure to have them as guests. They appreciated the flat, and especially loved the Home Cinema with a giant screen, Playstation and a huge selection of films. They took care of the apartment and left it neat, clean and tidy. I would be happy to have them stay at my flat again when they are next in London and have no hesitation in recommending them to other hosts. I believe that Nicola also has a property in his home region of Tuscany which he offers for holiday lets. I am sure he is just as good a host as he is a guest and would definitely recommend him.
