Reviews of this property
Paula was a very nice host. Her "house rules" are strict but reasonable. The room was very clean and comfortable (though space for luggage might be tight when sleeping with two people), with TV and free WiFi. Connection to London City is quick (20 mins by train). I enjoyed talking to Paula during breakfast which was good and sufficient. All in all a very recommendable accommodation! I would certainly like to stay again there when I'm back in London!
Die Beschreibung komfortables Zimmer mit Frühstück ist leider in zweierlei Hinsicht irreführend. Weder komfortabel noch kann man das als Frühstück bezeichnen. Im Zimmer gibt es weder einen Schrank noch die Möglichkeit ein Handtuch zu trocken. Zudem ist das Haus äußerst hellhörig. Das angenotene Frühstück besteht aus Vollkorntoast, zwei verschieden Marmeladen und diversen angefangenen, nicht mehr frischen Flakesorten. Dazu löslicher Kaffee od. Tee. Keine Wurdt, Käse, Eier oder Speck. Enttäuschend.
Thank you very much for the great time!
We had with you at your home.
The place was very clean and comfortable .
We felt heartly welcome.That's the place to stay in London.

I have cancelled my booking because a friend of mine had a family crisis and did not want to travel with me anymore. This was an unforeseen circumstance.
That's why I cancelled so late, on eve of arrival.
But I already paid for our stay. I tried to negotiate with Paula about our money.
We would have liked something refunded of the amount, my friend and I are still students and 300$+ is much money for us, and we got nothing for it!
Paula understood our situation but stopped responding to my messages after me talking about the money. Not responding to messages is quite rude in my opinion. If I don't longer exist for her, customer service totally gone...
I also said to Paula a full refund is not reasonable. Because I canceled too late.
Maybe Paula couldn't find replacement so quick (new guests instead of us).
Paula is a very kind, lovely and helpful person. We had a wonderful stay in her house. It was clean, the breakfast was good and our room was also in good conditions. Moreover it was easy to get to London. The thing we liked the most, was the nice atmosphere. You can easily talk with Paula about anything - we had lots of fun.
We would totally recommend a stay at Paulas house and would stay there again!

The house was perfectly clean. I felt in love with her garden and home decoration... Flowers everywhere! Her house is very comfortable, I felt like home. In the mornings, I found my breakfast already prepared on the table, and she gives you a lot of options! Paula was so nice to me and I felt incredibly good being in her home. She's always smiling and it makes you smile too!
I will definitely come back, and I encourage you to choose her house when coming to London!
I enjoyed very good attention from the family, very nice house in a very quiet, and is well connected to the center of London, certainly repeat !!!
Me ha encantado, muy buena atención por parte de la familia, la casa muy bonita, en un lugar muy tranquilo, y está bien comunicado con el centro de Londres, sin duda repetiría!!!
Paula is always very nice and their house is very clean, but you should strictly adhere to its rules, unfortunately. If you're looking for just a good place to stay and who reaches a decision acceptable breakfast is repealed spot on with her. In addition, the connection to the city is very good (daily costs £ 5.40) .They is very umgänglich.Wenn we are back in London, we are again very happy with their stay.
Paula ist grundsätzlich sehr nett und ihr Haus ist sehr sauber, aber man soll sich leider streng an ihre Regeln halten. Wenn man nur eine gute Unterkunft sucht und wem ein bescheidendes Frühstück reicht ist bei Ihr goldrichtig aufgehoben. Zudem ist die Anbindung zur Stadt sehr gut (tägliche Kosten 5,40 £ ).Sie ist sehr umgänglich.Wenn wir wieder in London sind ,werden wir wieder sehr gerne bei ihr Übernachten.
The room was small but cozy and the hostess very nice and helpful. The accessibility of the S-Bahn and thus the connection to the City was excellent (with Oyster card). Paula's room has a good price-performance ratio.
Das Zimmer war klein aber gemütlich und die Gastgeberin besonders nett und hilfsbereit. Die Erreichbarkeit der S-Bahn und somit die Anbindung an die City war hervorragend ( mit Oystercard ). Paulas Zimmer hat ein gutes Preis-Leistungsverhältnis.
