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.

Please forward this mail to Mark.
A very spacious apartment in a nice and quiet neighbourhood.
A few suggestions to improve the comfort of your guests:
* place wastpaperbaskets in the bathrooms and in the living. Have the big one in the kitchen lined with a dustbin plastic bag. Have soap holders in bathrooms and in the showers.
* revisit your kitchen with a woman ! Although small, it is very practical provided some changes are made in placement of utensials.
* Have the place better cleaned : dust under beds, fridge defrost,
* As already discussed with Cleaning staff: Please rewrite instructions how to enter the apartment!
The above does not mean we did not enjoy the place because we really did.
Best wishes, Johanna
Well kept spacious flat in a good location. We appreciated the Information provided by the host. Communication was smooth. Excellent choice for a short/long stay in London.
