    I truly enjoyed my stay with Annie. She lives in a quiet street close to public transport and shops. The room was very clean and everything that I needed was available. I slept very well, thanks to a very good bed and the calm atmosphere in the house and the surroundings.

    Annie is a wonderful host, very attentive and communicative. The home is great, the room is spacious and the location is great - closeby public transportation, a small creative districts and loads of excellent restaurants. This is the second time I am staying here, and would highly recommend the stay.

    Stayed at her place for two weeks and found it to be great! The location is 15minute walk distance to the overground, and has plenty of buses nearby that goes to central. The room is spacious, and you get your own little kitchen in the basement suite. She is very unobtrusive, and let you do your own business. Would come back to this location if I were to come back to London again!

    Annie's welcome was extremely friendly and warm, with fruit, water and some breakfast cereals. She gave helpful advice with public transport etc. Basic cooking facilities, cutlery needed cleaning before use. Some of the furniture seems a little overused, beds comfortable.
