Reviews for this host's other properties
We, 3 persons were 3 nights as a guest and are very satisfied! The location is great, very close to the River Thames, the area is 24 hrs. Under camera surveillance and relatively quiet for London. The room was immaculate in order and clean and the hosts very helpful, friendly and accommodating. Our airline lost luggage my two girlfriends, but since we did not want to spend the whole time at the property, but wanted to see London, our host has agreed to take the suitcases in reception. A huge relief! Thank you so much for this and for the stay! We will definitely be back next year! It was a great time! Thank-You
Wir, 3 Personen, waren 3 Nächte lang zu Gast und sind sehr zufrieden! Die Lage ist super, ganz in der Nähe der Themse, die Gegend ist 24 Std. kameraüberwacht und für London relativ ruhig. Das Zimmer war tiptop in Ordnung und sauber und die Gastgeber sehr hilfsbereit, freundlich und zuvorkommend. Unsere Fluggesellschaft hat die Koffer meiner zwei Freundinnen verloren, aber da wir nicht die ganze Zeit in der Unterkunft verbringen wollten, sondern London sehen wollten, hat sich unser Host bereit erklärt, die Koffer in Empfang zu nehmen. Eine sehr große Erleichterung! Vielen, vielen Dank dafür und für den Aufenthalt! Wir kommen nächstes Jahr garantiert wieder! Es war eine tolle Zeit! Dankeschön
Apartment very well and very nice Hui.
Appartement très bien et Hui très sympa.
We had a very enjoyable stay here! 5 good friends on their annual shopping, theatre, dinner and dancing event in the city. Apartment is perfectly located for this.
Have never used Wimdu before but the process was really quite good - any questions were emailed to the host and you got a quick response.
Helen was absolutely brilliant and met us to check us in at the time agreed and was happy to get up and check us out early.
The apartment had everything we needed for our overnight stay. We had lunch, dinner and breakfast out but could easily have used the facilities in the apartment. It was quite noisy at night but you are in the centre of London so this was totally expected. Would definitely stay here again!
Apartment very well located, right in the center, perfect!
Noisy despite the double glazing.
We have not had the pleasure of meeting Helen and so do not have to take his advice, we just got on the phone.
Possibility to leave luggage before our arrival and into the afternoon on the day of our departure, which is very significant.
Apartment very well for 4 people, a small error in the presentation, there is a bathroom.
Very correct, but it would still improve the household.
Appartement très bien situé, plein centre, idéal !
Bruyant malgré le double vitrage.
Nous n'avons pas eu le plaisir de rencontrer Hélène et ainsi n'avons pas profiter de ses conseils, nous l'avons juste eu au téléphone.
Possibilité de laisser les valises plus tôt à notre arrivée et jusque dans l'après-midi le jour de notre départ ; ce qui est très appréciable.
Appartement très bien pour 4 personnes, petite erreur dans la présentation, il n'y a qu'une salle de bains.
Très correct mais il faudrait améliorer encore le ménage.
Nice, helpful hosts. Very central location, but noisy at night rel. Apartment well equipped with everything. Cleanliness could be better.
Nette, hilfsbereite Gastgeber. Sehr zentrale Lage, dafür aber nachts rel laut. Appartment mit allem gut ausgestattet. Sauberkeit könnte besser sein.
Very suitable for short stays, as centrally located in Chinatown all theaters in walking distance. Although the road is noisy, but ok with the windows closed. The owner and also, the responsible person for the guests very friendly and the whole process very professionally .. The two rooms are very different in size. The equipment is complete, all that is needed is available.
Sehr geeignet fuer Kurzaufenthalte, da zentral in Chinatown gelegen alle Theater in walking distance. Zwar ist die Strasse laut, aber bei geschlossenen Fenstern ok. Die Besitzerin und auch die fuer die Gaeste zustaendige Person sehr freundlich und die gesamte Abwicklung sehr professionell.. Die beiden Zimmer sind sehr unterschiedlich in der Groesse. Die Ausstattung ist komplett, alles was noetig ist, ist vorhanden.
Hui is very friendly and efficient. She gave good advice to give for my successful stay. The apartment is very clean, nice, well decorated. Nothing is missing. It is especially ideal. Merchants, many restaurants and nice shops are 2 steps. I had a great time.
Hui est très accueillante et efficace. Elle m'a donner donné de bons conseils pour réussir mon séjour.
L'appartement est très propre, agréable, bien décoré. Rien n'y manque.

J'ai passé un excellent séjour.

Clean and neat flat in a very convenient location. Good value for money. Hosts were amiable and good communicators - they were very good about contacting us to return property we'd left behind.
