The room was as described, comfortable and perfect for me. Carmen was a lovely host, very welcoming and informative. I would recommend Carmen and her lovely house without hesitation.
Sono stata 9 giorni da Carmen e mi sono trovata davvero bene,la casa è davvero bellissima,curata e pulita,lei molto dolce e disponibile :) consigliata a tutti :)
I stayed more than 3 weeks at Carmen's house and I felt very comfortable. She explains everything you have to know and you can always ask her for help. The house is clean and tidy. The room was small but enough for one. There was a lot of space for my stuff. You can use the kitchen for necessary things. The area is very beautiful and safe. There are a lot of shops and restaurants. The house is very close to the underground and busses.
I am arrived at home but I miss London.
You Accommodation was perfect for me...full of comforts and well furnished.

The room was exactly as described, it and the rest of the house was clean and comfortable. Carmen was a great host, very warm and helpful.
Carmen was a perfect host for the 10 days I spent in London. The room is small but well-appointed with all of the storage I needed for my clothes, and the small desk (and wireless!) meant I could keep up with my correspondences. Her house is lovely, and so close to the Tube it was no trouble at all for me to make all of my appointments in central London. I hope I get the chance to stay with her again.
Ein Aufenthalt bei Carmen kann ich jedem empfehlen. Das Haus und insbesondere das Zimmer waren sehr sauber und ordentlich. Die Gastgeberin ist sehr nett und darum bemüht, dass man sich wohlfühlt. Bei Ankunft habe ich von Carmen tolle Tipps erhalten, wo man in der Umgebung gut essen oder bestimmte Dinge wie z.B. einen Reisestecker (nicht vergessen!) kaufen kann.

I think myself as friendly and interesting with many hobbies including theatre, books, cinema, walks and gardens and very importantly good conversation. I am very house proud and love interior design. I will make you feel welcomed and help you with local information and suggestions.
