Hi, I have been a host for many years, so believe me if I say that I have seen it all, I have!!!

I have been to Dino, perfect host! Patient with me and excellent knowledge of the city. Has been able to advise of alternative destinations in the city. The room is located near the metro Warren Street , perfect for all journeys. I was fine and I hope to go back to him! Marco
Venir chez Dino est une expérience très réjouissante. Dans un quartier "normal"et très bien desservi, cet appartement est un petit bijou, organisé et décoré jusque dans les moindres détails dans un esprit très design , bénéficiant d'une très belle vue sur Londres et Regent park.
Dino est un hôte exceptionnel, disponible, intéressant et courtois, plein d'attentions pour le visiteur.
Merci Dino pour les bons moments passés chez vous.

All went perfect ! Thank You Dino !
The location is really nice ....close to main Tube, National Rails and Bus
Really clean Apartment .....and with a stunning view :-)
See you Soon !
This is a nice place and a clean room with a very comfortable bed. Dino is very helpful, and in case he would have picked me up from the tube station. Every thing was o.k. :-).
I'll come back in case....,
Dino is a natural born host: professional, experienced, very knowledgeable about the city. We had nice chats and every time I asked him something specific about London he wanted to give me the most complete answer. I could really feel that he cared about me getting the best out of my stay! The room is very small but functional, so the rest of the house. The bathroom has a good shower. The view over Regent's Park is beautiful and gives you a sense of space, rare to find in the heart of a big city. Arrivederci Dino! :)
Dion was a very good host. He even offered to meet me in case I had difficulty finding his place - small things make a big difference.
I was aware of Dino's house rules (please read his rules and profile) which are basic courtesy (clean up your after yourself) and respecting his place.
I enjoyed my time with Dino and would be happy to return.
Hi everyone, I am back after one year not hosting due to selling my old place and buying and moving to my new place. So, a BIG WELCOME to my new home. As you can see my new flat is at Regents Park. All the reviews starting from January 2015 are from my new place, all the other reviews you will read are from my old flat in Camden that I have sold. But I am still the same person and host, as a matter of fact, I am even more happier and even more creative now I have found the perfect home and rebuild and refurbished and redesigned it :) So here we go, I am funny, and outgoing. People say I am upfront, and I like to think of myself as being open minded,...^^I'm an architect and product designer. I work part-time from home and part-time at the studio of the firm I work for. I go running mostly every morning in beautiful Regents park,what is only a 3 Min walk from the flat. I am quiet and respectful to your privacy. I have been living in London for 25years now. Before that I lived for 5 years in Germany. I also have lived in the last 20 years for 1year in Australia, and 1year in the USA. I'm original from the low countries,The Benelux in Northern Western Europe , and on my mother side we come from Torino in Italy. I love travelling, for sure camping into the wild, I adore nature and respect it with all my heart. I love and do mountain biking, hiking, diving, rock-climbing ,love cooking and having a glass of wine with some good cheese with my friends and enjoy a good conversation.
