We made things simpler for ourself by going back to where we had been before - and were not disappointed on our second time either. The apartment we stayed in was just as described and provided us with both good value for money and convenience.
We had not tried this method of staying away before and were really pleased with the radiative effects of doing so. It turned our weekend away into a personally unique experience and dramatically cut the cost of previous weekends away. The way ahead as far as I am concerned.
The appartment was nice and well equipped, the host was very friendly - he would even take us from the airport! -, the spot near the old port was well connected to facilities as public transport, shopping, restaurants and bars etc.,
First time we have used an online company to book renting an apartment. We picked the right one, from the outset, the Company was clear in instructions. Their whole frame of thinking on how an individual needs to trust companies is apparent. When we reached the apartment, and had difficulty in reaching the owners by phone, the customer support was outstanding. The international code we were using on the mobile was wrong (our mistake), they even came out to check if we were okay, the next day. We will only ever use this company for booking any apartment abroad. A star treatment.
Having found out about Housetrip via a friend I looked into it and found a great choice of properties covering a wide range of budgets. A simple and easy process enabled me to find what I wanted, make contact with the host and then organise my stay. The property was exactly as promised and all went very smoothly. Much cheaper and more comfortable than a hotel in Central London. I'd recommend it to anyone.
I've stayed with house trips three times now. Each apartment has been in a good or great location in the city. They've all been in good local areas close to transport and shops. And they're better value with more space and more room to be together than a hotel...for family trips or friends get together. We'll use them again.
I was slightly dubious before booking as I'd read some bad reviews but I think house trip must have upped their game since then as I couldn't fault anything throughout the whole process. The host does not receive their revenue until a couple days after you've checked in which gives you the opportunity to speak to house trip if you are not happy when you arrive. I would definitely use house trip again and have already recommended it to friends.
your web page was very practical,easy yo use,a lot of apartments with all kind of prices.I am very happy,only thing that you should find out the reason was,altough I made the payment, and the booking was confirmed by the host,a few minutes later I rcvd a mail from you stating that the booking was not confirmed yet. I communicated yr center,they responded immidiately and it was corrected next day.But overall I am very happy with yr close attention at all stages of my trip. I will advise you to all my friends.
It was easy to make the reservation and the payment,their description of the location was very accurate,the prices on this site are the smallest I could find,they sent me a message to remind me their contact data 24 hr a day ,in case anything went wrong but it was no need for that.I truly recommend House trip to anyone.
