We stayed at Gabriel's place for three nights-as honest as I can be there was the good, the bad and the ugly. The Good - location-within ten minutes walking distance of Oxford Street and Baker Road Station- close to buzzing areas and yet quiet. There is a handy quick serve yourself a breakfast available. At first glimpse it appears as advertised but there are other things obviously not spoken about, like the following: The Bad- There were cobwebs on the ceiling above the bed. The glass above the ceiling was cracked and it seemed risky to be sleeping under it. One of the two bathrooms shared amongst three rooms is very small and cramped. The room is one level below the street without any windows or outlet-you wouldn't know if the sun was shining or it was snowing. We needed to get out of home and right till the street to figure that out, it can begin to feel stuffy after a few days. The Ugly- There was a definite theft from our room- a pair of 150£ Bose earphones stolen from my open bag from my locked room! Only the host and us had keys to the room. Shocking and ugly to deal with this when it was discovered- the morning when we were checking out of the flat. When we contacted Gabriel to question him about it, he went back and forth saying that there's a cleaner who comes and then said no cleaner comes in - went on to say that this time no one came in and he will be cleaning up himself and will let us know. Very garbled and dodgy response. Of course, we never heard from him after. Overall, a terrible stay. Gabriel came across as a nice,amicable easy going guy and we were rudely shocked by this theft and our misjudgement. Worst stay ever.
Response from Gabriel:
How dare you accusing me for theft, no one has gone to your room , I told you that during the stay period no cleaning is done inside the room and you are twisting my conversation with you, it a shame that you have to go that low and accusing me for theft, you never considered that you may have lost it? never in my life i been accused for such degrading accusations, when you were at the flat you told me time and time again how much you liked the place and the service, how can you be a double face?
I had lovely two weeks at gabriel's place. everything was as described and the rooms are really cute. I had a room in the back and it was really calm. the location is fantastic - you can have a jogging run in hyde park or regents park in the morning and then you'll find a great place for breakfast just a couple of minutes away. There are also great restaurants in the neighbourhood. Oxford Street, Baker Street are accesible in 5 min by walk. all in all - i'll definitly come back when i'm in london.
