My son really enjoyed his stay here. Marie was a lovely host. Highly recommended.
This was a really lovely stay! The sofa was indeed very comfortable and the location was excellent (with a bus stop only a two-minute walk away). I would definitely recommend this place to others! Thank you Marie for your hospitality!
Marie was very nice, the sofa was cozy, and she even made effort to prepare breakfast for me :)
I will definitely consider staying with her again during my next stay in London. 10/10 would recommend
It was a wonderful stay, Marie is very kind and she prepared me a delicious breakfasts! Her house has a very good location, if I return to London, I would repeat with Marie
Excellent location for the city and Marie was the perfect host. Highly recommended.
Marie was a charming and welcoming host! She made me feel very comfortable, provided lovely breakfasts, and allowed for plenty of privacy. I would absolutely stay with her again on a future trip if her place is available.
Marie est une personne très agréable, je la recommande complètement.
Elle parle couramment français et anglais
Marie è un host molto accogliente e disponibile. Anche se la sistemazione a casa sua è promiscua ,lei è riservata e cerca di lasciare spazio al tuo privato.La casa è in una ottima posizione per gli spostamenti con i mezzi pubblici. Personalmente consiglio questa sistemazione ad una persona singola.
It was really nice to meet you. Ms.Marie is kind and friendly. Thank you so much for having us. Love you!
Marie is very nice and helpful! The location is quite central and well connected by bus!
