I had a wonderful 3-week stay at Cryn's lovely home. The house and room were peaceful and comfortable. I would highly recommend staying here. It's an easy walk to the tube station, with grocery stores close by, and Cryn is a wonderful host, kind and welcoming (and her homemade bread is delicious!). I look forward to visiting again soon!
Thank you Cryn, for your hospitality! Your were very kind and helpful.
The descriptions were accurate, the neighbourhood interesting, and Cryn is a good host. The house is comfortable and easy to be in, which helps when you are working in a strange place. I would be very happy to recommend Cryn to anyone else.
It was so lovely to arrive at this lovely peaceful house after a long journey. It was a very easy and short walk from Upton Park Station.
Cryn was very welcoming, a lovely host. My room was comfortable, restful and quiet.
In the morning there was ample choice of teas, coffee and preserves for the homemade bread, which was delicious.
I was staying here, because I was doing a course and it certainly is a beautiful sanctuary in the city.
If anyone is attending courses at the Kagye Samye Dzong Buddhist Centre, this is an ideal place to stay as easy to travel there.
I would definitely recommend Cryn and her beautiful home.
Cryn is a very nice host. She knows amazing stories about Londons history!
I felt very comfortable with my room, everything was there, towels, even an adapter for my mobile phone! Everything was clean.
My room was quiet, the shower hot and the breakfast excellent ... what else could one wish for :)
I can recommand Cryn restful friendly house for everybody who wants to enjoy a nice, friendly quite place in London.
I returned yesterday from almost two weeks stay at Cryns lovely home.
This was my first airBnB experience and it was much more than I expected. The room was clean, warm and had what I needed, the house is special and you can feel at home from the minute you enter, all thanks to the lovely host, Cryn, such a unique women who made my England visit much more better and worthwhile despite the university challenges.
I will certainly come back at my next visit and of course would like to recommend it with no hesitation.

About the Host, Cryn
My time is divided between Yoga, gardening and occasionally making theatrical costumes and other clothes. Trips to the countryside and abroad and visits to an extensive family keep me busy too.
Sharing my house and garden with visitors to London is a great pleasure.
