Comfortable Flat in a Wonderful Location (with a Perfect Owner)

  • 5 of 5

I just returned from a 6 night stay in Rafael's Queensway flat. The location could not be better. It's in a bustling, multi-cultural, central London neighbourhood on a lively street that's packed with a choice of great, reasonably priced restaurants. You can choose any one of them, and you'll immediately realize that they're full of locals rather than tourists. The public transportation is superb. You're literally steps away from either Queensway or Bayswater underground stations, giving you easy, rapid access to almost any location in London (buy an Oyster card as soon as you arrive!). The flat is in a quiet, secure building and offers everything that you could want for a stay of up to two weeks. There are grocery stores and supermarkets right around the corner. The best part of the experience was dealing with Rafael. He's professional, attentive and polite. From beginning to end, my experience was perfectly smooth. He responded to my e-mail inquiries with many personal touches that made me feel like I was more than just a guest in the flat. I'll definitely be returning here on my next visit to London.

Wonderful Location - Easy Access to Transportation

  • 4 of 5

Rafael, the owner was very responsive to our emails and communicated with details of our stay both before our trip and after our arrival. He was available for any issues or questions.

The apartment was clean and nicely decorated. Their was a brand new comfortable sofa and chairs for the dining table. The location made it easy for us to use the Tube while connecting with friends and family. We found excellent restaurants nearby; just around the corner was a great market to stock up on basics for eating at home. It also provides easy access to nearby parks and is a short Tube ride from any of the major attractions.

The location of the apartment was never a problem, quick stairway access or when bringing in our luggage the elevator was very convient. Evenings were very quiet in the complex and yet we were able to be on the bustling Queensway within five minutes if we wanted to enjoy some of the evening life in this great spot.

We prepared many of our breakfasts and a dinner in the kitchen, though small, included all equipment needed. The bathroom was nice and the shower provided nice water pressure.

I would recommend a stay here if this is an area of London you would like to explore and because of the quick response to any of our questions.

Owner's Response: Thank you for your review, Lucile, I am glad to learn that you were satisfied with your accommodation choice. Our apartment is located within a 30's building, therefore not new, but also nicely kept as our pictures gallery shows. I hope I can host you again soon! Regards, Rafael.

Great e-communication and very cute apartment.

  • 5 of 5

This apartment is very clean, the pictures are real and it offers everything you need for a perfect stay. The location is unbeatable, steps away from the underground station and having Hyde park nearby was great too! We met Rafael only on departure but e-communication with him was fluid and professional all the time. We would recommend this place. Maricela
