    Homestay Host Family Saji in ,

    I am glad you had a good stay in London in our home nevertheless. The listing clearly says it is a large Comfortable Living Room. We serve continental breakfast but it seems you expected a full meal. Different guests have different appetite/ needs and we always have lots of fruits, muesli, unlimited tea/ coffee etc all day on the house, which you didn't appreciate sadly. Anyways I hope we will have the pleasure of seeing you both again soon.

    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! :)

    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.

    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.

    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!

    The apartment is ideally located near several tube stations. Thank you again Saji & Tara.
