Santhosh aunty was fantastic host, she made us feel at home and we really enjoyed our stay with her. We found our stay extremely confortable, her house was very clean and peaceful.
Thank you for everything you have done for us.
Hope to be lucky enough to stay again in future.
Big hugs from Ranjani, Priya and Thami
Santosh was one of the more terrible homestay hosts I had the misfortune of staying with. The room that she advertises does not match the one on her profile, the room I stayed in was small, depressing and the with no lock on the door (meaning anyone can come and go through your property). The people in the adjacent rooms were loud and disruptive throughout the night, if you were in the bathroom and they arrived at 3am, expect to be knocked on and asked to get out of the bathroom by Santosh. If you raised a question with Santosh, she wouldn't hesitate to shout. Expect no sleep if you book with this host. Sorry, 1 star.
Santosh was a great host for me and my two girls. She helped us a lot during our stay and was always helpful. We had a great time with her in London, thanks a lot. Jürgen
This guest awarded the host 5 hearts but didn’t leave any comments.
It was a such a nice stay. Santosh Aunty is such a wonderful person and a great host.It was feeling of home away from home. Well located 2 floor house in a nice and peaceful locality. 2 min walking distance from nearest bus stop. 10 min walking distance from Woolwich Arsenal DLR and National Railway station. Restaurants and supermarkets are nearby. Rooms/washrooms/kitchen are clean and tidy, well maintained by the host. Would love to stay there again for my future visits. Recommended for other guests.
It was the most incredible stay ever. Santosh went over and above the call of duty.
Santosh is a lovely woman, she likes to have a chat and get to know you. She has a nice house and the rooms are clean and well presented. I definitely would stay there again and highly recommend her.
Ms. Santosh is a very kindly great host. Our stay in London was better thanks to her.
Santosh is really warm-hearted host and I could do well there because of her hospitality. I enjoyed talking to her, made good memories and experiences during 15 days. In particular, her cooking was really good and I could learn how to cook if I asked her.
I totally recommend when you are looking for which place to stay at!
We loved to stay this host's house. Super clean and quiet , comfortable house. And house is about 5-7 mins walk to Station, easy access to get to central London. Host helped us to better way to get tickets for sight-seeing. As a host is a teacher at Nuesery, my kids loved her and learned lots of new words from her. I loved this house and we'll definitely stay there again! Thank you so mus Santosh!
ロンドン空港近くで、セントラルラインのBank駅まで電車で2-30分程度のロケーションで、ロンドン中心部からもかなり近い立地がいい御宅でした。1番近隣の駅Woolwitch Arsenal駅前自体もかなり大きな駅で、朝5時までやってる巨大スーパーがあったり、すごく便利でした。裸足で歩けるくらい綺麗な家で、大変清潔で片付けられており、居心地がいいお家でした。週末だけ子供2人と滞在しましたが、ホストがすごくいい人で、更に保育士さんだったので子供が懐きまたあの家に帰りたいと、大変でした。笑。すごく滞在者に気を遣ってくれるホストなので、また是非滞在したいです。ロンドンで学校なんかに通う人は、長期滞在なら彼女のようなしっかりした人で夕食も準備してくれるので、是非オススメです。Thank you Santosh! My son really miss you and we'll definitely come back to your house and stay there! Thank you for taking care of my little child. I could have my private time!
