To start with Ram sent us a video of how to find this apartment, how to use the keys to gain access and then the amenities in the apartment itself. He met us within minutes of our telephone call to say we were 100 metres away. he escorted us through the process again (not difficult) showed us where everything was hidden. He offered help if we needed it.
The apartment was cosy and light, had everything we required including washing machine and airer good cooktop and oven. Only a hundred metres from Marylebone Station and directly across the road from a Tesco Express. So close to major transport intersections with Baker Street Station only another 300-400 metres further on.
The only real drawback for us was the stairs. The apartment is on the second floor (2 flights for our American friends) and the stairs were of the spiral variety, difficult with large bags and buggered knees.
This was our first experience with airbnb and a very positive one. The flat was great for me, my husband and our two adolescent children. The size right enough to have some independence, but, by far, its greatest asset was the comfortable beds. The flat is fully equipped, which makes you feel like at your own home. The location was also great. Having Marylebone station a few minutes' walk from the flat makes going from place to place a very easy task. We never met host personally. However, he was always in contact with us. A most pleasant stay. I would certainly stay here again. Thank you !
We had a superb stay at the apartment. The flat was a perfect size for our needs and was in a perfect location for us. It was very clean and comfortable and we felt completely relaxed there. Ray was a star before our stay helping to put me at ease and listening to my requests. As well as this we appreciated the fact that you met us at the apartment when we arrived to show us how everything worked etc and the fact that you kept in touch during our stay to check all was well. Thank you Ray. I would love to use the flat again at some point. Sarah
