Interaction with Guests
As much or as little as you like! I'm usually in and out of the flat a lot, and I want guests to feel relaxed and at home; I'm always happy to chat and advise but will also naturally respect your privacy.
The flat is centrally located so perfect for getting to all London's attractions, but the street is quiet and very residential - it feels quite tucked away. It's easy to get to pretty much everywhere, and it's a friendly and diverse urban neighbourhood - with lots of lovely green spaces nearby.
Great public transport links - buses, tube and railway stations all just moments away, hire bike racks across the street - and the flat is a fantastic base for walking too.
There are very few house rules - make yourself at home, and just be generally respectful of the flat.
Karen's a very friendly and helpful host. The apartment location is great, very close to the city center. The room is as shown in the pictures, ok for 1 person, would be quite small for anymore than that.
My experience at Karen's home was nothing short of comfortable. She was super patient with me even though my friend and I had several delays making the check in time. She was kind enough to answer all my questions with quick replies and helpful tips to get my way around. The home is close to several restaurants/pubs and the buses so that transportation is easy. The London Eye and Big Ben was only a 5 min taxi drive away. It's even possible to walk back home for those that don't mind it and want to experience the different views from walking back home.
Karen and her daughter made sure we felt at home by allowing us to freely use her kitchen (at 11PM, because we didn't know restaurants closed so early around town). She provided us with towels and wifi was super convenient. Our only regret was that we didn't get to try her breakfast! Hopefully, I'll be able to stay longer in the future! Thank you for your awesome hospitality, Karen!
Karen's flat really was a nice base to explore London, not too far from the Tower and only a few minutes walk from the Subway. The room is a little smaller than it looks in the pictures, but the bed is very comfortable and everything is cutely decorated to make you feel at home. We really appreciated the American converter plug she had in our room and breakfast.
Quite average. Reasonably good location but there didn't appear to be much going on in the vicinity, very small room, reasonable breakfast, Karen herself was friendly but I probably wouldn't stay here again.
About the Host, Karen
Hello! I was born in London, have been in this flat eleven years, and it is truly the nicest place I've ever lived. I used to travel a lot for work, and always loved finding the stuff the guide books don't tell you. Now I tend to stay home and make the most of this astonishing city - on a budget! I'd be very happy to help you make the most of it too.
