  • I spent two weeks staying with Julia and Ian. Were perfect days. They are excellent hosts and very friendly. The room was very comfortable. They prepared great breakfast for me. The house is very close to the undergroud, the region has trade and is quite safe. I only have reason to be grateful for the attention and affection they had me. If we go back to London, I will definitely stay there :-) Thanks for everything, Julia and Ian :-)

  • I was more than happy with my stay with Julia and Ian. They were lovely people and gave me a wonderful experience in their home. They shared their love of music and the local area. The home was warm and comfortable and in a great location for me to find my way around London. Home made jams were delicious as we're the cooked breakfasts.

    If I return to London I would certainly like to stay again. I would love to keep in touch.

  • I really enjoyed my stay at Julia and Ian's house. They are really nice and I felt very at home. The room was cozy and clean. The house is a nice location and close to Walthamstow Central from where you can easily go to central London.

  • Their hospitality was outstanding, indeed very warm and relaxing, especially needed when coming home after a full day. Julia and Ian provide a comfortable quiet room with garden views, wifi, a nice bathroom and shower next to your room and really great breakfasts, and they can find answers for all the questions that arise for a non-local. As a nice gesture they even give you a welcoming information package written in your own language. The area of Walthamstow is a gem, worth exploring in itself, not only for meals. It is within easy reach of all the main transport systems to go anywhere in London. If you fancy walking, running or cycling you can enjoy nature all the way along the river Lea and through the Marshes down to Stratford.

  • Staying with Julia and Ian was like home away from home. I stayed for three weeks; the room was comfortable and just what I wanted. Chatting over a cup of tea in the kitchen after a long day at the library was just the thing. I'd love to go back there some time.

    Walthamstow is ideal for longer stays in London. Being the terminus of the Victoria line, King'sX/St Pancras is only 25 minutes away, and Walthamstow itself is a really nice place with a small-town feeling.

  • This was my first Airbnb experience and it went very well. I felt completely comfortable living with Cathy and I enjoyed having a cozy and comfortable room to come home to after a day in London. Slept great and next morning I had a very delicious breakfast everyday. I would definitely recommend this host.

    If I can, return soon!

  • Julia and Ian are lovely people. The room was cozy and had everything I wanted. Walthamstow was surprisingly charming and conveniently located for getting into the city (s Cross including walking from the house to Walthamstow Central). I would not hesitate to stay with Julia and Ian again!

  • Nice, quite room - warm welcome and an easy going check-in :-) - including breakfast and all the space in the house at your disposal.
    It's close to the tube which takes you in less than 20 min to St. Pancras, and all facilities are around the corner. With their upfront travel information it's a piece of cake to find your way.They even have a EU power adapter, in case you have forgotten to bring it with you.
