Davide et Jan ont été très accueillants et nous ont mis à l'aise tout de suite. Le logement correspond tout à fait aux photos disponibles sur Airbnb. Le quartier n'est pas très dynamique mais très bien desservi ce qui permet d’accéder facilement aux centres d'intérêts de Londres…
Davide and Jan were excellent hosts--welcoming, helpful, and friendly without in any way being obtrusive. In short, perfect. The apartment is newly-built, clean, contemporary, secure, quiet, accessed by elevator, and is a 2 minute walk from the Elephant and Castle tube. This is …

Hi Brian, Thank you for your review. We also enjoyed your stay very much and we hope to see you again in London soon. Regarding the points you raised, I am sorry you felt the Elephant and Castle area didn't meet your expectations. Although it is true that the area around the roundabout is quite utilitarian and now just in the process of being improved and updated, that is exactly what allows us for now to offer such competitive rates at only 6 minutes of Underground away from Trafalgar Square, not to mention the overall abundance of means of public transport (two Underground lines and 40 bus lines) which can take you to more ‘upmarket’ areas in a matter of minutes. I also apologise as I didn't realise that you would have liked to know more about cafés in the area. Although you are right saying that you won't find any Starbucks or Costa in close proximity of the Elephant and Castle roundabout, small independent cafés are popping up just seconds away to cater to the needs of a growing crowd of professionals and South Bank University students. For example, you would have definitely appreciated the brand-new 'Barista & Baker' or its long-standing neighbour 'Art Café', which are both less than ten minutes walk from the flat and offer coffee drinks and freshly baked breads and cakes. For Starbucks aficionados, the closest one is just 10 minutes away on foot on Borough High Street, which is also packed with independent and chain cafés, bars and restaurants. Finally, I'm sorry that the bed didn't live to your expectations. Although technically a futon sofa-bed (as we clarify in the details of our description), it was specifically imported from Belgium because its comfort was far superior not only to other beds of its kind available in London, but also to 'real beds' normally found in London's private homes: very often simple divan beds with thin and essential spring mattresses. Obviously it is a matter of habits and expectations, but our guest bed was chosen particularly with comfort in mind (it is actually more comfortable than the one we use ourselves). That is why we decided to select the 'real bed' option from the Airbnb drop-down menu, making a consideration in terms of comfort rather than ‘type’, and not before we had already received very positive feedback by our first fifteen and more guests. I hope that this information will be useful to you and to our future guests and that you will want to give Elephant and Castle another chance on your next visit to London. Best, Davide
