Quite close to Liverpool street where you can easily move anywhere. Clean room building under renovation. The owner responds to emails promptly and were very helpful, although I have not got to know him in person. Ideal for those looking for something spartan but equally clean and comfortable family. I would change the system to turn on the light in the bathroom and olierei door hinges;). The advice to lovers of the essential and with a strong ability to adapt. Antonio.
Abbastanza vicina a Liverpool street dove ci si può spostare con facilità ovunque. Camera pulita edificio in ristrutturazione. Il proprietario risponde alle mail prontamente ed è molto disponibile, anche se non ho avuto modo di conoscerlo di persona. Sistemazione ideale per chi cerca qualcosa di spartano ma allo stesso modo confortevole pulito e familiare. Cambierei il sistema per accendere la luce in bagno ed olierei le cerniere delle porte ;). La consiglio agli amanti dell'essenzialità e dallo spiccato spirito di adattamento. Antonio.
I had a very bad surprise when arrived at this property. It seemed the house of horrors, uncleaned, just one towel, with stains. A property in so poor conditions, with scaffoldings and rubbish near the entrance, very different from photographs reported on the listing and the photograph of the building forwarded from the host just few days before my arrival. The flat doesn't reflect the one listed, is a cheat. Even unsafe place, I would have never slept there for free.
For all the reasons above I asked my money back, but I'm still waiting Wimdu's reply from last 26th April (almost one week ago). They did not even help me to find a similar accomodation, as no emergency number to call them was provided in the booking confirmation, so I was left alone in the dark at 00.30 in the night. Forced to call a cab at 00.30 in the night and ask to a friend to host me on her sofa. That sounds ridicolous. Not happy with this uncareness of the site as well, and I have to say, that's the first time they're not prompt, but this doesn't justify their behavior. I can't upload relevant photographs of the status of this property here, but all the material has been provided to Wimdu.
I hope they'll chase this up, as this host can't rent this flat, it is quite inappropriate. I seriously think he books and put reviews himself. It is not possible someone could leave a positive feedback on that.
I'm waiting for the refund Wimdu, so please act in this regard.
Good. Clean, the shower in the room is a strength. Clean kitchen. Nice, very quiet. Near the subway. The only thing is that the walls were very thin and closely listened to the upstairs neighbors. Good price compared to other places in London.
Bien. Limpio, la ducha en la habitación es un punto fuerte. Cocina limpia. Agradable, muy tranquilo. Cerca del metro. Lo único es que las paredes eran muy finas y se escuchaba mucho a los vecinos de arriba. Buen precio en comparación con los otros sitios de Londres.
Just in case someone of you wants to go there remind Kazz to give you the code for the door! We didn't get one and couldn't get in. Gladly the neighbors at night could help us and called someone to give us the code. No one told us that there is a code needed at all. At last we could get in and the room was quite nice. The shared kitchen was also nice and clean. But the bathroom was a disaster: because of it's shared with other 3 rooms it was quite dirty and the water couldn't get out because the drain was blocked. Also the shower was beeping the whole night because of a technical disorder.
Very good! Convenient to all tourist attractions, comfortable rooms and bathrooms always clean despite being in common. Spacious kitchen and fully functional.
Molto bello! Comodo a tutte le attrazioni turistiche, camere confortevoli e bagni sempre puliti nonostante fossero in comune. Cucina spaziosa e tutto funzionante.
Pleasant stay, good price / quality ratio. Well served by 2 subway lines.
Tiny improvements: creaking doors, kitchen cutlery numbers.
Sudden drawbacks came from incivility of some occupants, but it !!
Séjour agréable, bon rapport qualité/prix. Bien desservi par 2 lignes de métro.
Petites améliorations possibles : grincement des portes, nombres de couverts en cuisine.
Les inconvénients subits sont venus de l'incivisme de certains occupants, mais ça !!
The apartment is in a well connected area of London, close to both train and underground stations within 10 minutes walking distance. When we arrived we had a very difficult time retrieving the keys from the safe-lockbox located outside the door - as it turned out, the owner had given us the incorrect combination. Although it was frustrating, we were able to get into contact with him via telephone right away. When we opened the lock box, our room keys weren't inside even though it was after 3, the designated check in time. We decided to just leave the bags and go to the center. After we returned later that evening, the keys were in the lock box and so we could enter into the room. The room was clean and was as advertised. The bed was what you'd expect from paying this price, and the pillows were flat (I recommend that you bring your own). Our individual room locked just fine, but we had issues locking the front door, most of the time we had to just leave it unlocked because the bolt was stuck. The bathroom was alright, the toilet and shower are in separate rooms, both rooms barely big enough to fit a person and the appliances. However everything functioned properly and was clean. My boyfriend was too tall for the shower, he's about 188cm - but there was always hot water even though there was an entire apartment full of people showering one right after the other. Also ladies, there are no outlets in the bathroom, so any hairstyling had to happen in the bedroom. The kitchen was modest, but included everything we needed on a basic level. We just bought our own breakfast, but the apartment had some cereals, coffee, and tea. There is only one small pot and one small pan in the kitchen. That's all the useful information I can give - it was a good place to stay on our budget, I don't have any major complaints - it was no Ritz Carlton, but you get what you pay for.
We got all the information we needed via mail from our host and it was easy to find the place.
Our room was o.k. for two nights.
The bathroom could have been more cleaner and the toilet seat was broken.
We found some cereals and tea in the kitchen, that was fine, but there was´t any milk to eat it with. The kitchen was clean though.
We would´t book the place again for another stay in London.
The arrival to handing over the keys was uncomplicated and very easy. Has everything worked out great. The room was clean and comfortable for my circumstances. The WLAN also works great. For a metropolitan travel the perfect accommodation.
Die Ankunft bis zur Übergabe der Schlüssel war unkompliziert und sehr einfach. Hat alles super geklappt. Das Zimmer war für meine Verhältnisse sauber und bequem. Das WLAN hat auch super funktioniert. Für eine Metropolreise die perfekte Unterkunft.
