Fantastic little cottage and very homely ad off the main road so not too noisy. Easy to find. Walking distance to tube station and great bars and restaurants near by. There was a few things wrong tho the bathroom wasn't as clean as liked and general cleanliness around windows wasn't good as was covered in cobwebs,the shower was our biggest problem didn't drain very well so had yo keep turning it off so the basin wouldn't overfill this needs addressing ASAP. But overall a lovelyittle place in a great location.
Mark's "Elegant centrale London Home" is maybe not so elegant, but very close to Barbican Underground Station, it was a very central and very convenient for our shopping and sightseeing tour to London. Mark's house/flat is across the street from Smithfield Market. It was a 24/7 busy place and city-like noisy all day and all night. The flat has a excellent roof terrasse, with we enjoyed very much. There was some problems with toilet and bath, but the communication was good and Mark's plumber fixed everything very quickly
There were three of us travelling for business, my sister and I (we are
business partners) and a male colleague. We choose the house in Long
Lane as it has two bedrooms and two bathrooms, which we needed travelling in
three and with a male colleague.
The house in Long Lane was not only very dirty, but we were missing
towels for the three of us. We noticed this when we arrived to the house before dinner time, as we wanted to have a shower before going out for dinner with customers. We sent a message to the owner, who was out of the city but he has been very good and fast in responding. He kindly offered to either go and bring towels from another apartment he has in Goswell street or to move to this accommodation. When we arrived in the apartment in Goswell street we saw that there where 3 shower towels and 1 hand towel, still really not enough for the three of us. This apartment has only 1 bedroom and 1 bathroom, therefore the third person would have to sleep on the sofa. Because of all these changes, we were running late for dinner with customers therefore we did not have time to go back to the first house. My sister and I decided to stay in the apartment in Goswell Street, which at least was cleaner that the house in Long lane. Our colleague (he is a 43 years old manager, 1,85 m tall) could not sleep on the sofa, and considering that we had only 1 bathroom and few towels, he had to go and find a hotel nearby.
This caused an extra cost to us for this short trip.
Beside this, the even more disappointing thing happened yesterday morning,
when I was having a shower and in the middle of it the water stopped... no
water, hot or cold was coming out from the shower, so I had to rinse myself
with water that my sister was passing me from out of the shower!
I took some photos of the shower machine and informed the owner when back home, but had no reply, not even apologies. Unfortunately, this has been a very bad experience, especially as we were travelling for business. The cost of the apartment plus the hotel for our colleague turned out to be very expensive, we are very disappointed for this and for the lack of response.

Apartment as shown in images - small but big enough for 5 people/3 nights in London. Very cosy and central, with a bus stop right in front.
Problem: living room is a bit noisy, but ok.
The apartment is very well located just 10 minutes walking from Barbican station (central line). Clean and confortable.
Mark, the host, is quick and efficient.
The next time I go to London, I'll will stay there.
Helo!!!. I spent 3 lovely days in London, 10 days ago. All was very nice!! But since a week ago I am very angry because I have not received the money from the deposit yet. I sent several emails to Mark but he doesn´t answer. Please, Mark, I want an explanation!!!!!!! Thanks.
Positives: great location, comfortable beds, nice rooftop terrace, nice immediate surroundings, broken sofa bed was fixed immediately.
not so great: kitchen equipped sparse (eg no towels), acts on the images more beautiful than it is. For 4 people optimally to sixth kanns ever be a little tight.
but all in all it was a super nice London-trip
Positiv: tolle Lage, bequeme Betten, schöne Dachterasse, nette direkte Umgebung, kaputtes Schlafsofa wurde sofort repariert.
nicht so toll: Küche spärlich ausgestattet (z.B. keine Geschirrtücher), wirkt auf den Bildern schöner als es ist. Für 4 Leute optimal, zu sechst kanns schon mal ein wenig eng werden.
aber alles in allem war es ein super schöner London-Trip
Contact easy and enjoyable before the stay. Access to the house by public transport easy. Near Saint-Paul. Quiet during our stay this weekend.
Pleasant stay. Fits the description and expectations. Good value for money.
As against the kitchen falls a little ruined and the sofa bed in the lounge suitable for just one person.
Contact facile et agréable avant le séjour. Accès à la maison par transport public aisé. Proximité de Saint-Paul. Calme lors de notre séjour en fin de semaine.
Séjour agréable. Correspond à la description et aux attentes. Bon rapport qualité-prix.
Par contre la cuisine tombe un peu en ruine et le canapé-lit du salon convient juste pour une personne.
To call the apartment Elegant is an exaggeration, especially compared to the high price. There are many steps in the 3-storey apartment is divided. Kitchen and kitchen furniture is worn. The refrigerator needs a replacement. Beds are good but with double duvets. Maybe not nice if it's your grandmother you have to sleep with. There is a large meat market opposite which commenced reading and Trucking pm. 02 at night until the next morning. It makes noise enormously.
At kalde lejligheden Elegant er en overdrivelse, særligt set i forhold til den høje pris. Der er mange trapper i de 3 etager lejligheden er inddelt i. Køkken og køkkeninventar er nedslidt. Køleskabet trænger til en udskiftning. Sengene er gode men er med dobbeltdyner. Måske ikke rart, hvis det er ens bedstemor man skal sove sammen med. Der ligger et stort meat market overfor, hvor der påbegyndes læsning og lastbiltransport fra kl. 02 om natten og indtil næste formiddag. Det støjer enormt.
