Reviews of this property
Zimmer klein aber OK, Badezimmer OK. WIFI funktioniert gut. Schöne Gegend.
Sehr nah am Bahnhof und kleinem Supermarket. Man ist sehr schnell in der City (30 Min).
Très bon rapport qualité prix. Hôte très sympathique et discrète. Agréable maison, très bien placée. Accès rapide et facile vers Londres centre notamment westminster.
Il est vrai que je suis très très maniaque, j'ai donc un peu eu du mal avec les sanitaires mais cela n'engage que moi.
Si je devais retourner sur Londres, je choisirai à nouveau ce logement avec grand plaisir.
Un très beau séjour chez Ruth qui nous a accueilli avec beaucoup de chaleur dans sa maison très confortable, à deux pas du métro et du magnifique quartier de Greenwich ! Expérience à renouveler avec plaisir !
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.

Praticamente nel cuore e nel centro di Londra. Quartire Chinatown a 3min a piedi da tutto compreso metro.
Appartamento moderno, pulito e funzionale.
Host gentile e disponibile.
Scelta top per qualità/prezzo.
Everything was perfect. We strongly recommend this appartment for everyone doing a London trip. It's perfectly located. Everything was clean and only at nights it got quiet loud but we got used to it after one night.
We will definitely return one day.
Die Lage der Wohnung ist sehr zentral. Obwohl die Zimmer zur Straße gehen, war es bei geschlossenen Fenstern nicht besonders laut.
Das Wifi war schnell und hat gut funktioniert, im Gegensatz zu dem Kontakt zur Ansprechpartnerin Huy. Sie scheint Ihre Mails nicht oft zu lesen.
Mit ein paar kleinen Änderungen hätte die Wohnung gut 4 oder 5 Sterne bekommen können. Im Bad saß in den Fugen der Schimmel, ein neuer Duschvorhang und neuere und vor allem mehr Handtücher, eine neue Pfanne, Teatowels und frische Spülschwämne, mehr kleine Löffel, ausgeputzte und vor allem von unnötigem Müll befreite Schränke, funktionierende Glühbirnen sind kein großer finanzieller und zeitlicher Aufwand.
Mit etwas mehr Anstrengung könnte alles richtig super werden. Den Hocker im größeren Schlafzimmer entsorgen, statt dessen die beiden Sessel aus dem Wohnbereich hier hinein stellen und ein kuscheliges Sofa fürs Wohnzimmer kaufen.
Die Bewertung eines vorherigen Bewohners hat es gut auf den Punkt gebracht. Sieht auf den Fotos besser aus als es ist.
Perfect location surrounded by all major Theaters. Communication with Hui very easy and smooth. Flat was clean. I would recommend the flat for families with 3 kids or 2 coupe of friends. We were able to leave our luggage until the time of departure in afternoon. very much appreciated
There was come comments about the noise. There are actually some double windows so it was pretty well isolated from the street except of course if you have ambulance or police car passing by. If you are sensitive to noise during the night you can take ear plug just in case, but we did not have to use them.
Good to note that there are really long corridors to get to the flag. there is Video security at entrance so we felt safe, but if you are travelling alone and tend to be nervous in this type of setting. maybe better choose another flat.
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
