First time using air bnb and having Sally as a host has made me a tue believer of this service!!! Her hospitality and kindness made me feel at home! Thanks Sally you and your gorgeous flat made my stressful work trip feel more like a holiday .
Sally was, and is always, a brilliant host. This is my second time staying with her in London, and she is nothing short of a delight as a hostess - wonderful conversations, beautiful flat, very convenient location, and tea for the having around the clock! This already fabulous city is only further enhanced by her generosity, foolproof recommendations as to lovely restaurants/cafes, and warmth. Would absolutely recommend.
Sally was very friendly and kept in touch with me from the point of booking. She made us feel very welcome when we arrived. The apartment is beautiful and spacious, our room was very comfortable.
Great location, a stones throw from Battersea park, lots of really good pubs and restaurants within walking distance.
Would 100% recommend booking here, I would definitely book to stay here again.
Sally was precisely what you want a host to be: fabulously fun and sweet as hell. Book book book her! You will love your stay in her place.
Sally é uma ótima anfitriã. O apartamento é realmente bem localizado e muito bem decorado e amplo. O banheiro é ótimo e o banho delicioso. Para quem gosta de cozinhar, a cozinha é perfeita. Adoramos a estadia!
I had a lovely time at this place. I would highly suggest biking around to see the sights as it is a flat city and there are lots of bike paths! The apartment was wonderful and Lena and Sven really know how to make you feel at home. Everything I needed was available and when I was looking for how to get around or things to see they were super helpful. I would highly recommend a stay at their house.
My host was amazing. The place was exceptional. Sally has an incredible personality and is very friendly. My experience was excellent and I would highly recommend it to anyone staying in London for any length of time.
