Other Things to Note
We can't do any checkins after 11:30pm.
This is a non-smoking flat.
We have neighbours, so this flat is not suitable for parties or socialising.
We had a great stay in this really nice place. The apartment is perfect for families with two kids, the kitchen is well equipped and there is enough space to spend time inside. It's situated in a lovely neighborhood, with nice greens and houses, very quiet (what you really need after a day of sightseeing) and with a perfect connection to busses and the tube. Fiona gave us a warm welcome and had a lot of advices for us!
Nous avons passé 3 nuits avec nos deux enfants dans l'appartement de Chris et sommes très satisfaits : l'appartement est situé dans un quartier très calme (petits écureuils le matin dans l'arbre devant la maison !), très bien desservi par le métro mais aussi par les bus.
L'appartement est confortable et joli, bien entretenu. Nous avons été accueillis avec beaucoup de gentillesse et de disponibilité par Fiona, que nous saluons ici.
Merci donc à tous les deux pour ce bon séjour.
This apartment was perfect for our needs. It was close enough to walk to Kings Cross Station (20 minute walk) and then navigate the rest of the city. The apartment was clean and big enough for 4 adults. Would definitely recommend!
The apartment was exactly as described. We had an early flight and was able to leave our bags around 10am, which was very helpful. We met with Fiona, who is lovely and very helpful with travel information. The apartment location is very ideal ( close to great restaurants ) and close to bus and tube. We were able to get to all the tourist sites very easily. We thanks Chris who is very responsive and for a lovely place to stay. We had a great time.
This was my first Airbnb experience and I was lucky to had picked Chris' place as our first Airbnb. Chris was very responsive on any inquiry I had prior to the arrival. Check in procedure was given in a very detailed manner which gave us much comfort and sense of certainty. Chris was also very accommodative of our very late check in time (we didn't arrive until close to midnight). We didn't meet Chris himself but his friend Fiona was waiting for us. She is an extremely friendly person.
The flat itself was VERY clean and in an impeccable condition. It was big and comfortable enough for 4 of us.
The neighbourhood is in a very quiet and cozy location. Having always stayed in hotels before this, staying in a house like Chris' in such neighbourhood brings that extra personal and locale touch to the whole experience.
The only minor inconvenience for us was the bath. It just took us longer to use the bath for shower. But I have to stay that is just a minor set back to an otherwise great stay at Chris'.
Our host was very accomodating, and very helpful. The flat is in a really nice neighbourhood, and we were able to drop our bags early and pick up the keys, so we didn't have to carry them round London till 4pm.
Will definitely be looking to see if it is available on a return visit.
J'ai adoré séjourner dans l'appartement de Chris. L'accueil de Fiona était parfait et elle a pris de nous durant tout notre séjour. le quartier est très calme et la vue sur le petit parc est délicieuse.
