    It was great experience staying with Pania’s twice in London. Pania’s home is a cozy lovely style in white color, clean, quiet, private and we can feel like home staying here with her. Pania is a very kind and lovely host who is always there to help us if we need and ask for. We are really thankful for all her suggestion & helps on bookings train & taxi, it’s really helpful for us : ) Pania’s home is located in zone 2 where is really convenient going to tourist places by Tube from Archway station or if you prefer bus, there are too many as well. From the tube station, it takes only 3 mins by walk to her home! Really convenient! Around area, there are also many restaurants, KFC, McDonald’s, Starbucks, and local supermarket. In summary, it was our great experience staying with Pania’s and we will definitely stay here again. Highly recommended to any guests. ^^;

    Nuestra experiencia ha sido fabulosa, Pania y James son una pareja encantadora que nos han acogido como si fuéramos de la familia.
    La habitación preciosa con todos los detalles, el baño independiente solo para nosotros y la casa estupenda en un sitio muy tranquilo, muy cerca del centro y muy bien comunicado, con el metro al lado y un montón de líneas de autobuses que te llevan a todos los sitios de interés.
    Tanto mi pareja como yo, hemos vuelto encantados. Seguro que repetiríamos sin dudarlo.

    We went to London for the first time and pania and james's home was the best home we could find: near of the tube 2 feet, very quiet, nice bedroom and with all you needed, and bathroom nice and clean.
    Finally pania and James was warm and friendly. So we recommend a lot that host. Thanks to you

    My stay there deserves 4 hearts. Pania and James are really nice. You can feel autonomous to use your own room and your own loo. You can use the kitchen to cook your meals.
    The house is clean, and really closed to the underground, so it is easy to move around! Absolutely I recommend it!

How do I book?

Contact the host to check their availability and ask them any questions you have about staying with them. Once the host confirms they’re available for your dates, you can complete your booking.

You then pay your host on arrival or as stated by your host on their profile and agreed by you on booking. Please be cautious if a host requests advance payment if its not included on their profile. Our hosts have been advised that if they wish to request advance payment they must make this explicit in their profile. We do not recommend the use of Money gram or Western Union.

When can I share my contact details?

Host and Guest email address, phone number and home address will be exchanged in a confirmation email sent to both immediately after a booking is completed. It's against our policy for Guests and Hosts to exchange direct contact details via our messaging system.
