My husband an I live in a basic small apartment in the lovely buzz of London. Opposite is a tube station and buses to central London and lots of places to eat and drink, also a cinema.I provide bed an breakfast only. Breakfast is cereal or toast. Tea or coffee, made by yourself. No cooking but you can use the microwave or oven to heat ready meals from the super market right across the road. I do not cook or prepare meals. If you are coming for a short stay in London, and just need a room. I am out at work all day. But feel free and make yourself at home.
Couples are most welcome. I don't normally except children as my apartment is very small. Payment on arrival.

    I enjoyed my stay at Paula's home. Paula's and her husband are both lovely hosts with a great sense of hospitality. The room is very clean and comfortable with a TV in the room. The bedding has a firm mattress and as a result, my nights were deeply sound and relaxing. I had easy access to their kitchen for me to make breakfasts (tea, coffee, toasts,...) Paula let me tried their spicy Marmelade, excellent!! Transports: buses, underground, and shops are under 5 minutes away from their home. I would recommend Paula's home for a stay at any time for both reasons: comfort and easy access to Central London.

    It was my first trip to London. I am very glad that I lived with Pauline, she is very kind, cheerful, talkative and responsive. I had a very bad stomach ache and Pauline gave me a pill. If I return to London in the summer, I will definitely stay with Pauline and advise you!

    It was my first time when I use Homestay. And I really like it. It’s much better than hotel. The flat is very close to bus stop and tube station. You need about 15 minutes to get to the city centre. Near this homestay you can find shopping centre, pharmacy, restaurants and 24h shop.

    Although vicinity to city centre it is quiet at night.

    The flat is very tidy. It has all facilities such as shower, fridge, microwave, TV, drawers, cabinet, washer.

    Paula is very kind, helpful and hospitable person.
    Thank you for made me feel like at home!

    Nous avons passé un excellent séjour chez Paula. L'appartement est agréable. Paula travaille beaucoup et malgré cela, elle s'est montrée très disponible et très serviable. Son logement est idéalement situé à proximité de la station (juste une rue à traverser) et nous avons apprécié les commodités à portée de main. Merci encore à Paula pour cet hébergement et son accueil. Si nous revenons à Londres, nous reviendrons chez Paula.

    Paula es una excelente anfitriona. Su depto es hermoso y esta justo enfrente de una estación de Tube, con pequeño shopping, negocios de comida, supermercados. Buen acceso desde el aeropuerto y para viajar a las zonas de interés turístico. La cama es muy cómoda. El agua caliente de la ducha es perfecta. No dudamos en recomendar a Paula a otros viajeros.

    Paula is a really fantastic person. Although she is a hard working woman always in a good mood. Even if she cannot keep you company her pets will do for sure. The accomodation is excellent. The place is near everything you need - underground, buses, phone, cash machines, shopping mall, restaurants, etc. If I ever go to London I will certainly stay at Paula's!

How do I book?

Contact the host to check their availability and ask them any questions you have about staying with them. Once the host confirms they’re available for your dates, you can complete your booking.

When do I pay?

Once a host confirms they're available, you can go ahead and pay the 15% booking fee (maximum of 250 $£€ for longer term bookings) using a choice of payment methods: Visa, Mastercard, American Express, Maestro, Laser, JCB & PayPal (not available in certain countries). You then pay your host on arrival or as stated by your host on their profile and agreed by you on booking. Please be cautious if a host requests advance payment if its not included on their profile. Our hosts have been advised that if they wish to request advance payment they must make this explicit in their profile. We do not recommend the use of Money gram or Western Union.

When can I share my contact details?

Host and Guest email address, phone number and home address will be exchanged in a confirmation email sent to both immediately after a booking is completed. It's against our policy for Guests and Hosts to exchange direct contact details via our messaging system.
