The space

The location can't be beaten - we are 5 minutes walk from Old Street tube. We are just far enough the flat feels quiet and residential but there are hundreds of amazing places to eat and drink within 1km.
The flat itself is simple and beautiful, my haven in the middle of the city.

We definitely enjoyed staying at Ruth's and Thiago's place. The area is just perfect for a short trip to London, providing you with tons of options for nightlife as well as food places and other fun stuff for the day. It is also very easy to get to all the tourity stuff via bus or tube; stops and stations are very close by. The room has everything you need, and Ruth and Thiago are happy to help you with anything you´re still missing. They are very friendly hosts, you'll see that they love being in this great area, which makes them great advisers as well. We'll definitely come back!

All fine. Very good located for planning your sight seeing trips. Very clean. Ruth and Thiago are very friendly and always open for a chat and Ruth has good tips & tricks for getting around London. I especially enjoyed the eating out recommendations and had my first corean dish. :-)

We had a pleasant stay at Ruth and Thiago. Ideally located for one weekend, the apartment is near public transport and has all kind of restaurants around. The furniture is basic and the bed not too comfortable but it is perfectly clean and very quiet. Ruth and thiago were very responsive and helpful.

My boyfriend and I stayed at Ruth and Thiago's for 3 nights. I wasn't at the apartment much, just to sleep and shower, but the apartment is in a great spot. It's on a quiet street that is just a few minutes walk to the tube station and lots of restaurants and bars. Ruth and Thiago were both very easy to communicate with and quick to respond. They provided recommendations for the area and thoroughly answered my questions about transport. The apartment is cozy and overall great for a short stay. It might be a bit too cozy for a longer stay, but I would book with them again.

This flat is in a fantastic neighborhood that is transitioning from run down to hip, trendy, old meets new architecture. There are markets, interesting historical sites, cafes, pubs (Old Fountain Free House was my favorite), and public transport within easy walking distance. Ruth has compiled a booklet with some of her favorite places. The Wifi works great. Be aware that there are 4 flights to walk up [no lift]. The building is part of an older council estate, so be sure you understand how to buzz for Ruth to open the door! Ruth & Thiago love ethnic food & have some good recommendations. They also cook ethnic, so you will want to be OK with chilies & garlic from time to time. I came back around midnight one night and I felt safe walking by myself from the Tube to the flat. That says a lot.
