Mon mari et moi-même avons fait 6 nuits et avons apprécié avoir notre intimité.
Nous pouvions faire la cuisine si nous le désirions, profiter d'un petit coin extérieur et surtout avoir la surprise de s'exprimer en français avec la propriétaire :-D.
Notting Hill 2019
Living like a local for two weeks in Notting Hill was a dream come true! Quiet Location couldn’t be better, with easy access to bus and tube. Val was easy to work with and a great source of knowledge. We could reach Marble Arch in about 20 min. taking the local bus to tube station and than tube into downtown London. The apartment was well equipped with a full kitchen that we enjoyed using. Grocery shopping in the two local grocery stores was a treat and so close. We walked to Portabello Road for the big Saturday market which shouldn’t be missed!
Warning! Much worse than it looks and seems from others reviews: Moldy, dusty and snotty host
Some things don’t show. Like the musty, moldy smell that strikes when you enter. Generally unfresh, the dusting was sloppy (for example on shelves, bathroom mirror and under the beds). A tapestry by the bed was used to cover up apparent water damage. There were signs of this in other places as well. Handles and fixtures coming off or hanging askew did not make it better. Much of the interior looks at least 40 years old and worn down. It needs major renovations since long. The backyard is quite nice – but the front yard was uncleaned and moldy. How can ithis place even be allowed to be let?
Unwelcoming, snotty host
We did not feel welcomed by our host Val. She was quite disinterested in our concerns as guests. Intitially friendly but grew increasinlgly disrespectful. We had some questions about the arrangements for getting access to the appartment which were unusual and unsafe. We have experience of renting places around Europe, and never seen anything like it. Our concerns were brushed off with increasingly disrespectful and snotty comments. During our mail conversation and when we arrived she complained that we were sending too many emails - even though she herself wrote multiple because she she forgot something or just to delay her own answers. All in all she communicated that our questions were a trouble to her, that we were to blame and that she would rather not be bothered.
Sure it’s a good location, but if you want to stay in Notting Hill and prefer not to live in a dump and be insulted by the host, then I suggest you keep looking.
Now Val may write below and try to explain away as she did about our concerns and if so I’m not sure I will be able to answer. To that I can say in advance: what I’m telling is the truth about what we experienced. We could have complained when there, but they couldn’t have renovated the place anyway. We didn’t want to waste our short time in London. We visited several other hosts during a small tour around England and gave them great reviews since they deserved it. This accomodation however doesn’t. We have asked our money back but that was rejected. We haven’t even received an apopolgy from the host. Hope you find a better place.
Gemütliche Wohnung in guter Lage
Wir waren 1 Woche zu Gast in Vals Wohnung. Die U-Bahn ist mit dem Bus nur 5 Minuten entfernt. 2 kleine Supermärkte in der Nähe (einer mit ATM) decken alles ab, was man für den täglichen Bedarf benötigt. Die Wohnung ist ausreichend groß und ist mit allem ausgerüstet, was man als Feriengast benötigt. Ein wirklicher Traum war für uns die Sitzmöglichkeit im kleinen grünen Innenhof. Hier haben wir jeden Morgen gefrühstückt und abends noch ein Glas Wein bzw. Cider getrunken und Pläne für den nächsten Tag gemacht. Die Wohnung ist ein wenig in die Jahre gekommen (einige Türen an den Küchenschränken fallen bald ab und Probleme mit Feuchtigkeit sind an den Wänden sichtbar) was uns jedoch nicht weiter gestört hst. Val ist sehr nett, unkompliziert und hilfsbereit.
