Linda is very friendly and welcoming. The room is comfortable and the house is equipped, the location of the house allows you to reach the center on foot. Thanks Linda for the wonderful stay.
I loved Linda! She was so warm and welcoming from the moment I arrived. The room was well-furnished with plenty of resources for travelers. She offered to do laundry for me while I was out which was very helpful. Her home is your home while you're there and it was exactly what I needed at the first stop of my solo trip!
The price was very good and the location was easy enough to get into the central part of London. I tended to walk about 20 minutes to the tube station or a little less than 10 to the bus stop. The routes depended on where in London I was heading for the day, but it's an easy and safe walk all around. The area is flat and the building had a lift, so it was very easy to navigate with my large suitcase. I felt very safe in the area and the locals were very helpful and friendly.
Linda est une personne très accueillante. Malheureusement le logement ne dispose ni de table, ni de chaises, ce qui dans mon cas (68 ans) posait quelques problèmes de confort. Disposer de la cuisine me laissait entendre pouvoir préparer mon repas du soir et le déguster autrement que debout dans la cuisine ou vautrée dans un canapé sans table de salon. Le fait que mon hôte décide de repeindre le living pendant mon séjour a précipité mon départ.
Linda was amazing and very helpful. She went above and beyond I highly recommend this stay to anyone
Linda est une personne très gentille et très accueillante! Elle nous a beaucoup aidé durant notre séjour et c’était top! Merci à elle, je recommande cette adresse à tout le monde!
This guest awarded the host 5 hearts but didn’t leave any comments.
Linda, eine warmherzige, freundliche Dame, empfing uns ganz wie gewünscht vormittags, wir hatten ein kleines gemütliches Zimmer, teilten Küche und Bad, alles klein, aber sauber und angenehm, Kontakt war unkompliziert, und gut, sie half uns, wo wir sie brauchten, und ließ uns in Ruhe, wo wir es wolllten, alles wunderbar! Thanks a lot!
