  • Nous avons passé 4 nuits chez John . Nous étions logé dans une chambre spacieuse avec des lits confortables . Nous avons eu un bon accueil . Par contre la salle de bains ainsi que la cuisine mises à notre disposition n'étaient pas bien entretenues . Les couverts et le matériel de cuisine étaient sales et ne donnaient vraiment pas envie d'y manger.... La salle de bains est également très basique. Néanmoins, notre séjour fut très agréable. Le logement de John est situé à 5 minutes à pied de la station de DLR Poplar qui nous emmenait en moins de 30 minutes dans le centre de Londres . Nous avons beaucoup apprécié la courtoisie et le calme des Londonniens

  • My friends and I really enjoyed our stay at his place which consisted of 3 beds. Very spacious room. Very comfortable bed. Underground (DLR) was also only 3-4 minutes away via walking.

    It was also nice having the bar downstairs.

  • John is a very nice guest, I did enjoy the luminous room.

    Public transport services are one hundred meters far, as well as shops and restaurants (I recommend one Chinese in front of bus stop).

    Good experience.

  • The room was wonderful, cosy, warm and clean, it was a perfect place to stay overnight, and all three of us wished we had stayed longer. One of the other guests were very noisy, but this wasn't a fault of the host, so I can't complain :) john was a wonderful host and was very friendly. Hopefully, we'll have the opportunity to stay again soon! :)

  • We had a friend visiting over the New Years Holiday and were excited to plan a trip to see the fireworks in London. John's place was very affordable even over the holiday period and just a short commute from city center. John was an exceptional host and went above and beyond to assist us with our check in and parking for our vehicle over the whole stay.

  • John and son were very friendly and helpful.

    Location is 5 minutes walk from the DLR and absolutely perfect for the price range.

    Highly recommended.
