Die Wohnung hat mir und meinen 3 Freundinnen sehr gut gefallen.
Wie bereits in den anderen Bewertungen geschrieben, ist sie sehr sauber, für das 1. Frühstück ist bereits alles vorhanden und der Vermieter Nick ist sehr nett und zuverlässig.
Die Wohnung ist sehr schön gelegen. Direkt vor der Haustür befindet sich die Busstation, von der man mit der Linie 2 direkt in das Zentrum fährt.
Nettes Restaurant "Tia Maria" nebenan /Pub "Vauxhall Griffon", in dem man ebenfalls sehr gut essen kann, um die Ecke / sehr nettes Cafe gegenüber /Einkaufsmöglichkeiten ebenfalls in der Nähe.

Nick war ein freundlicher und seriöser Vermieter, es hat alles gut geklappt. Die Wohnung ist verkehrstechnisch gut gelegen. Sie ist für 4-6 Personen ausreichend gross. Das "elegant", na ja, es war o.k., das Preis-Leistungsverhältnis stimmt.

Nicks apartment is located in the city of London, pretty central near Vauxhall station. You can easily each all major attractions of the city by bus (line 2 or 88) or tube (Victoria line). The apartment itself however, did not 100% meet our expectations.

The positive things:
The apartement is clean, offers three reasonably large bedrooms and a tiny kitchen. Nick is a very friendly person who welcomed us on the first day. There was a bowhl of fresh fruit, some drinks and basic breakfast (toast, jam, butter) for the first day. This made our start in London easier.

The so-so things:
Besides being clean, the apartment is very worn out. The WIMDU description of the apartment is "elegant apartment" which it is not. The floor creaks heavily, the drains in the kitchen and in the bathroom wash basin are pretty clogged so that the water does not flow off properly. The kitchen table is damaged and so are the kitchen shelves. The cushion of the kitchen sofa is severly ripped. And the apartment is rather dark, especially the kitchen room which is located in the basement. These are however just annoyances which can be tolerated. After all, this is not Hilton hotel.

The bad things
The neighbours are loud. Very loud. I'm speaking of "hip-hop music all night until 3 AM" loud. So loud that my daughter (14) was actually able to sing along because you could even understand the lyrics. All four of us had to use ear plugs but even that did not really help because the heavy bass of the music could not be filtered out by the plugs. Even when there's no music from the neighbours, there is a good share of noise from the street (cars, ambulance siren etc.).

All in all:
As it is, the apartment would have been acceptable, given the fact that London IS pretty expensive and that the apartment is at a more or less central location. But the loud noise made the stay very unpleasant. Therefore: only a very limited recommendation from my side.

Reasonable place to stay, but not quite what we were expecting.

The apartment was very comfy and was perfectly suitable for our stay, especially the three (!) bedrooms were great. The host was very flexible about our arrival though, our flight was late. He also was very friendly. In every bedroom there were enough towels for us, so we didn't need to use our own. The free w-lan, tv and radio also made our stay even more enjoyable. The bus stops and the underground were very close and a supermarket was nearby. All of us (5 persons) would definitely recommend this apartment and come back next time staying in London. Thank you Nick!

We had a very nice stay at this apartment. Everything well organized. Close to Metro and bus to the city stops at the front door. We used the easybus from Gatwick to travel to the apartment stops a few meters from the apartment.

4 dagen in het appartement van Nick verbleven met onze 3 zonen van 12 - 15 en 17. Alle commentaren hieronder over het appartement zijn waar. Inderdaad een uitstekende uitvalbasis voor het verkennen van Londen. Leuke Pub vlakbij: the Vauxhall Griffon. Naast de deur zit een Braziliaans restaurant/danscafé. Prima eten voor een redelijke prijs. De buurt wordt bevolkt door hoofdzakelijk Portugezen: veel Portugese eettentjes en winkels, leuk. Wij hebben de buurt als veilig ervaren. Het appartementenblok 'Orange House' waartoe Nr. 10 behoort, is afgesloten van de straat door een apart hekwerk, dat je vanuit het appartement elektronisch kunt openen. Ook dat geeft een veilig gevoel. Ik zou hier weer willen verblijven een volgende keer.
