This was a very cute flat and looked very close to the pictures. It is a basement flat so with the rain it can get a bit muddy, however the kitchen skylights provide a lot of daylight. I think this flat is good for about 3 people. The main bedroom is very lovely, and the second bedroom would fit 1 comfortably. We had a nice stay, however there were some things that I would have done differently. There were only 3 towels provided for the 4 guests that we had staying and we could not find proper sheets and bedding for the pull out couch. In many rentals that I have stayed at they provide household items such as paper towels and extra linens. Also, there was no bathmat in the bathroom and since there are no windows the floor of the bathroom gets wet. Many of the lightbulbs needed replacing as well. The bathroom sink was also clogged and took about 15 minutes to drain each time we brushed our teeth or washed our hands. The flat has no wifi which is in the posting but I missed. The location was pretty central and walking distance to Duke of York square and Sloan Square. It was a lovely apartment I would just focus on the details a bit more. All in all though, we had a lovely time.
I will start with the positives first - The apartment is just as it looks in the photos. It is very prettily and cozily furnished. The kitchen was well equipped and the house has all the basic necessities. Though in the basement, the kitchen has a sky light and that makes the house feel quite cheerful. Though it is a little further away from Fulham Broadway tube station (about ten fifteen minutes walk), but the bus stop is right outside. So it's well connected with public transport. We had to pay 30 pounds extra for the wifi - but it was smooth and worked fine. In terms of things that can be improved: a) Communication with the Guests: I had to really chase the host for everything, starting from booking confirmation to check in arrangements. Although I admit, our stay was smooth, but her lack of communication caused me unnecessary degree of stress, which could have been avoided. We never actually met the host, as the keys were left for us in a padlock. While we figured our way around the house and things were usually in the place where one would expect them to be, but for somethings like wifi code, amenities etc I had to keep reaching out to her. We discovered the hair dryer in the bedroom side table drawer on the last day of our stay, as we assumed if it was not there in the bathroom, the house probably didn't have one. So while the lack of communication did not impact my stay, I think it's useful if future guests know this and can set their expectations accordingly. b) The general cleanliness standards were not that high. While the linen and the sheets were clean, but the kitchen, kitchen towels, the rugs and the towels weren't. There were no extra toilet paper rolls or sufficient towels for all of us. I understand that's because the cleaner probably didn't do their job. It'd be useful for someone to check after the cleaners in that case. c) Usually the hosts in other Airbnb's meet us at check in and show us around the place, and give helpful tips about the area. We never saw our host. I acknowledge that it is not required of them, but it is those small things which guests remember and take back with them and are the things that make a difference between a great five star and a good four star stay! d) Although not a major issue, the mattress in the second bedroom has sunk in the middle and has centre indentations. We did have some trouble sleeping, but it was manageable. All in all, the place is comfortable and I would recommend it to others, but with the right caveats mentioned above.
