After we decided to spend a couple of days in London, we started to search for an accommodation. It should be close to the city, clean and affordable. What we then found at Bernard, and Michael has exceeded all our expectations. We felt at home from the very first minute. The two guys are natural born hosts. I do not know what I should point out the most, the room, the bath, the warm atmosphere. They left nothing to be desired. Thank you for the wonderful time and in case we should travel to London for another couple of days, be sure that you´ll be the first to ask for an accomodation.
The only risk when you travel alone, especially in a big city like London, is
that you can feel a little bit lonely. It could sound strange, because London
has everything you want, but, I repeat myself, you will feel a little bit
lonely. I've been in London 10 times, I used to get my own flat, but this time
I've decided to change, and, for the first time I've tried Wimdu. The first
impression I had when I saw the house was : I will never leave :) and the
second one, was : what a wonderful person they are. In fact, in addition to the
fact that the house is wonderful, spatious, well designed, and very clean, you
share the house with Bernard and Michael, excellent people.
The first thing Michael said to me was simply "Feel you at home" and I
would like to conclude my review with this sentence, because I really felt like
at home and they make me feel very welcome. Very strange for a City like London, isnt it?
L unico rischio quando si viaggia da soli, specialmente in una grande citta, e la solitudine. Potrebbe sembrare strano quello che sto dicendo, dal momento che una citta come Londra sicuramente offre tutto cio che ciascun desidera.
Sono stata a londra dieci volte negli ultimi 4 anni, e ho sempre optato per un appartamento da sola e questa volta ho deciso di cambiare e provare Wimdu. La casa indubbiamente e meravigliosa, si vede dalle foto e e assolutamente come appare. sala spaziosa e enorme, e vista sulla City meravigliosa, palazzi illuminati specialmente di notte.
E anche i due proprietari sono fantastici, veramente amorevoli, e vi faranno sentire come a casa. La prima coa che mi ha detto> Sentiti come a casa. E cosi e stato. Grazie di tutto.
My boyfriend and me had a great time at Bernard place! Everything was absolutely perfect and clean as if it was your own home. We brought towels and stuff for shower etc, but there's no need to bring anything because the bathroom is equipped with every kind of things that you could ask for (from the shower cap to magazines and guides for london and its places).
We had lots of choice for breakfast such as various cereals, fresh fruits, different juices, milk, coffee, tea, marmelade and jam, honey...I've been really surprised to receive such a good service for a price like that. I recommand Bernard and Michael'house to everyone who want to spend some days in a very quiet, peaceful and well linked place (the house is just 5-6 minutes walking from the tube, linked to the district and the central lines). I hope to come back there soon!
Great place, really great hosts and I felt right at home straight away. Easy to get around all of london, parks nearby and all the things you need within a five minute walk.
was an excellent experience and I would recommend anyone who is thinking about staying here to go ahead and book it, you will feel right at home.
It was the 1st time we used Wimdu, and couldn't be more perfect :)
Bernard and his partner were absolutely lovely, we totally felt like home.
And about the room & the house .... my goodness, it was even better than a 5 stars hotel. We felt in love with the whole house, and the room was even better than appears in the pictures, so big, clean and awesome decoration.
Also the location is pretty good, quiet, great views and just a few min. until the next tube station.
NExt time I'll come back to London, I know where I have to stay :)
Es war eine perfekte Woche bei und mit Bernard und Michael! Beide sind unglaublich nett, sympatisch, gastfreundlich, humorvoll, witzig und sehr hilfsbereit. Bernard hat uns jeden Tag mit tollen Tipps für die Stadt-Tour versorgt, nachgesehen, was gerade aktuell ist und viel Insider-Info gegeben. "Amazing"!
Die Wohnung ist sehr schön, geschmackvoll und individuell eingerichtet mit schönen Bildern und viel Liebe zum Detail. Das Zimmer ist zwar etwas klein, aber auch sehr hübsch, sauber, mit genügend Stauraum, einem schönen Blick auf den Kanal und vor allem sehr ruhig. Man konnte sehr gut entspannen und schlafen. Das eigene Bad ist zudem sehr schön, sauber und geräumig.
Das war das Beste, was ich bei WIMDU gebucht habe. Man hatte das Gefühl, man kommt zu Freunden. Vielen Dank dafür und wir kommen defintiv wieder, egal wohin!
Anlässlich eines London-Besuches haben wir (67 und 60 Jahre) bei Bernard und Michael gewohnt. Wir sind sehr herzlich empfangen worden und haben ein sehr schönes gemütliches Zimmer vorgefunden mit einem separaten Bad zur alleinigen Nutzung. Das liebevoll eingerichtete Wohnzimmer, die Küche und der hübsche Balkon mit Blick auf den Kanal und die Sky-Line von London ergaben ein tolles Gesamtpaket.
Parkmöglichkeiten auf einem geschlossenen Innenhof sind ebenfalls gegeben.
Die Lage der Wohnung ist recht zentral, die nächste U-Bahn-Station ist in 10 Minuten zu Fuß zu erreichen. Fahrzeit zur City ca. 20 Min.
Bernard gab uns viele Tips für die Erkundung von London.
Wir möchten noch erwähnen, dass wir einen wunderschönen Abend (mit deutschem Bier) gemeinsam mit Bernard und Michael verbracht haben. Dabei haben wir festgestellt, dass B + M nicht nur perfekte Gastgeber, sondern auch zwei sehr sympathische Zeitgenossen sind.
Wir haben diesen Aufenthalt sehr genossen und sagen ein großes Dankeschön an B+M.
Bernard and Michael sono due persone speciali, aprono la loro casa coniugando l'eleganza e la discrezione inglese al calore e all'accoglienza sudamericana. La casa si trova in una posizione ottimale sia per chi arriva da Stansted Airport sia per raggiungere il centro città. La camera è intima e ha un suo bagno personale. La prima colazione è ricca e invitante. Bernard and Michael hanno reso il nostro viaggio speciale, aiutandoci anche nella programmazione di alcuni itinerari per visitare meglio la città in pochi giorni. Londra è bella e la loro casa è perfetta!!!
Nous avons eu beaucoup de plaisir à faire la connaissance de Michael et Bernard. Nous avons été très bien accueillis, nous nous sommes sentis comme à la maison. Tout était bien propre. Merci à vous et au plaisir de vous revoir !
