Do you guys have a 100 ❤️ option? Jo is one of the kindest and funniest persons I have ever met. Her house is lovely and she is always available for anything you might need. I have learnt a lotfrom just talking with her over breakfast, about London and life in general. In just a few days she was a generous host, a friend and sometimes even an adopted parent to me. I would recommend staying with her to anyone, 100%.
Perfect location in Central London. Very close to the Tube and the British Museum. Jo is a lovely host.
Jo was a fantastic host, the room was so welcoming and comfortable. Jo gave me accommodation at short notice when I was let down by another host. Jo goes out of her way to make her guests stay as much like home. Go stay with Jo in London, her home is very convenient and makes London a great experience.
Jo is a very accommodative host obviously we got to be realistic. She helped with our routes and tours. A very nice host to be with. She made us feel very much at home. Thanks.
My stay went even better than I had expected. Jo is quite special..... a person well worth meeting in her own right, as well as a great host.
Bon Accueil. Propre.
