Our stay at Saji's was amazing. Elle et sa fille sont non seulement très accueillantes, mais aussi conviviales et pleine de joie. Its was lovely to get to know them, share experiences and learn from them.
The location of the flat is perfect with a very good access to public transports. My sister and I felt safe and comfortable there.
Saji is a very good host as she is available for her guests and has a lot of advice to give when it comes to visiting London.
I very much recommend this place! :)
Thank you for your warm welcome Saji! We will definitely be back! :)
With Saji you feel at home right away. Great hospitality. Nice neighbourhood. Close to Paddington station. She gives you good information about London. My daughter and I had a great stay.
This was our first time using a homestay, so we were not sure what to expect. But it turned out to be really good and pleasant stay. Saji and her daughter Tara are kind and helpful and good to be around. We surly will do this again and we recommend it after this experience.

Saji est très sympa, très accueillante. Elle a accepté gentiment mon pauvre anglais en me donnant de judicieux conseils.
L'appartement très bien situé est bien agréable. Chouette expérience.
Thank you very much for the accueil!
Merci beaucoup pour ce sejour tres agreable et chaleureux.
Saji est une personne tres accueillante et serviable avec son adorable petite fille.
For my daughter and me, there was a very pleasant stay with Saji and her beautiful little daughter for five days in June. The hostess is very kind, learned, vise and helpful.
I`ll recommend a stay at Saji`s place.

Saji was so welcoming and helpful throughout our stay accommodating us with privacy when required, the location was excellent with a leafy square in front of the flat and close proximity to Hyde Park and central London. Saji also cooked us an evening meal on one of the nights which was resturant quality but not resturant prices. It was lovely to have a night in when we didn't have to forage for food!
We spent nice time with Saji & Tara. Very good experience. I recommend.
The apartment is ideally located near several tube stations. Thank you again Saji & Tara.
Our host was very welcoming and helpful.
