Awesome! The apartment is beautifully decorated and is close to the heart of London, it is located on a small canal, very nice and quiet. Bernard and Michael are adorable. They were able to find us good ideas and places not to be missed. Thanks to them, we had a memorable weekend. It is sometimes scary to book a holiday with someone or in a place we do not know, but now you can go there with your eyes closed, you will not be disappointed. The apartment is very well maintained, you will feel like home. Bernard and Michael were very helpful, their hospitality is great. Thank you very much, we will return!
Génial ! L'appartement, très joliment décoré, est proche du cœur de Londres, il est situé sur un petit canal, très agréable et calme. Bernard et Michael sont adorables. Ils ont su nous trouver les bonnes idées et les endroits à ne surtout pas manquer. Grâce à eux, nous avons passé un week-end inoubliable. Il est parfois angoissant de réserver des vacances chez quelqu'un ou dans un lieu qu'on ne connaît pas, mais là, vous pouvez y aller les yeux fermés, vous ne serez pas déçus. L'appartement est très bien tenu, vous vous y sentirez comme chez vous. Bernard et Michael se sont montrés très disponibles, leur accueil est formidable. Merci beaucoup, nous reviendrons !!!
apartment close to central London (15 minutes by metro) ... very welcoming hosts and lovely ... I recommend for short stays in Bernard and Michael.
appartement tout proche du centre de Londres(15mn en métro)...hôtes très accueillant et adorables...je recommande les petits séjours chez Bernard et Michaël.
Me and my wife had a few days as a sort of "holiday" in London before I started my new job. I came across wimdu.co.uk by chance and decided to book a stay with Bernard and Michael - They are the PERFECT hosts we instantly felt welcome in their home. The the flat is exquisitely decorated and very clean. Can't go with mentioning the views, next to the Regent's Canal with Canary Wharf in the background. We had such a wonderful stay and we're so happy that we didn't book a hotel.
My boyfriend and I stayed at Bernard's home for 5 nights and it was great. The room is very nice and clean and the view from the window is beautiful! In the bathroom there is all you need and breakfast is very rich! Bernard and Michael are very kind and helpful, Everything was perfect! I hope to return soon in London and surely we will return to stay here!
- Well connected to the city centre.
- The room was exceptional, there were plenty of things you could need, like electric european converter, radio-cd, slippers... with lovely eyesights to the canal.
- Beautiful external private bathroom with towels, shampoo...you find everything you need.
- Breakfast is very good too and there is plenty of milk, tea, coffee, cereals, jam, and you can take whatever you want.
- The hosts, Bernard and Michael, were charming and you can have a good time having a cup of tea with them. They explained us everything we needed about transports, things to see etc... and they were always very attentive to us.
We felt like home.
Bernard, and Michael have been fantastic hosts. The flat has exceeded all our expectations and we felt at home from the very first minute. The room, the bath, the living room are nicely decorated and very clean. The breakfast is super. Thank you for the quality time, we will come back soon!! Ciao
After we decided to spend a couple of days in London, we started to search for an accommodation. It should be close to the city, clean and affordable. What we then found at Bernard, and Michael has exceeded all our expectations. We felt at home from the very first minute. The two guys are natural born hosts. I do not know what I should point out the most, the room, the bath, the warm atmosphere. They left nothing to be desired. Thank you for the wonderful time and in case we should travel to London for another couple of days, be sure that you´ll be the first to ask for an accomodation.
In October, I was with my daughter a few days in London. Since I had never booked through Wimdu, I decided rather to my mind and was just right. Bernard and Michael's apartment is in a quiet area but yet so central that we get there in a short time, anywhere. Outside the window, a small channel flows with Schleuse.Das room is nice and you have your own Bad.Jederzeit can use kitchen or living room. Both are very helpful, straightforward and easy to love people. I would stay again at any time with Bernard and Michael. Best regards Ivo
Im Oktober war ich mit meiner Tochter ein paar Tage in London. Da ich noch nie über Wimdu gebucht hatte, habe ich eher nach meinem Gefühl entschieden und lag genau richtig. Bernard und Michaels Wohnung liegt in einer ruhigen Gegend aber doch so zentral, daß man in kurzer Zeit überall hinkommt. Vor dem Fenster fließt ein kleiner Kanal mit Schleuse.Das Zimmer ist nett eingerichtet und man hat ein eigenes Bad.Jederzeit kann man Küche oder Wohnzimmer benutzen.
Beide sind sehr hilfsbereit, unkompliziert und einfach liebe Menschen. Ich würde jeder Zeit wieder bei Bernard und Michael absteigen.
Viele Grüße Ivo
The only risk when you travel alone, especially in a big city like London, is
that you can feel a little bit lonely. It could sound strange, because London
has everything you want, but, I repeat myself, you will feel a little bit
lonely. I've been in London 10 times, I used to get my own flat, but this time
I've decided to change, and, for the first time I've tried Wimdu. The first
impression I had when I saw the house was : I will never leave :) and the
second one, was : what a wonderful person they are. In fact, in addition to the
fact that the house is wonderful, spatious, well designed, and very clean, you
share the house with Bernard and Michael, excellent people.
The first thing Michael said to me was simply "Feel you at home" and I
would like to conclude my review with this sentence, because I really felt like
at home and they make me feel very welcome. Very strange for a City like London, isnt it?
L unico rischio quando si viaggia da soli, specialmente in una grande citta, e la solitudine. Potrebbe sembrare strano quello che sto dicendo, dal momento che una citta come Londra sicuramente offre tutto cio che ciascun desidera.
Sono stata a londra dieci volte negli ultimi 4 anni, e ho sempre optato per un appartamento da sola e questa volta ho deciso di cambiare e provare Wimdu. La casa indubbiamente e meravigliosa, si vede dalle foto e e assolutamente come appare. sala spaziosa e enorme, e vista sulla City meravigliosa, palazzi illuminati specialmente di notte.
E anche i due proprietari sono fantastici, veramente amorevoli, e vi faranno sentire come a casa. La prima coa che mi ha detto> Sentiti come a casa. E cosi e stato. Grazie di tutto.
