I stayed in Rich's single room for two nights. I could not have made a better choice. Due to change of plans Rich wasn't at the flat when I arrived, however, he had arranged for his friend to let me in and show me around. The flat is in a great location with excellent transport links (bus and underground) to the centre (30 mins on the bus) and to Stratford (Olympic Village and Westfield Centre). The area itself is lovely and there are lots of lovely cafes for breakfast plus an excellent pub called The Crown for dinner. If you're a runner then the flat is ideally located next to Victoria Park. Rich was a wonderful host, very kind and helpful and I will definitely stay here again. The room was very comfortable and had everything I needed for my short stay.
I've been guested in Rich's home for about 2 weeks. A pretty house located in a peaceful area very well connected with the Centre of London (20 min bus - bus stop just on-sight from the window of my room), really clean, and nicely organized by Rich in a functional way, with great attention to particulars and design of things. Really, you'll feel yourself at home in few hours. Thank you great Rich!
Rich was a lovely and kind host who was absolutely interested in my well-being. He was considerate and easy to get along with. I was also happy with the room and his flat. If you want to explore London from a safe neighbourhood and be well connected at the same time, this could be your choice. Although the room was small, it was cosy and Rich has taken a lot of care to include everything you need to make your stay worthwhile. The wifi-connection is excellent, there's a TV... Thank you, Rich!
I really enjoyed the two weeks I stayed at Rich’s place. He was a great host, friendly and helpful. The room was very nice, and the whole flat was homely, clean and tidy. I would definitely recommend it to anyone and stay there again at any time.
Estuve 4 noches en Londres, haciendo el tipico viaje turistico, solo pase por alli para dormir, pero Rich fue un buen anfitrion, amable y cualquier duda o problema que os ocurra, Rich os ayudara a solucionarlo. La habitacion es agradable, con su armario, su cama y su cafetera, suficiente para turistas como yo. Esta situada en una zona tranquila de Londres, y muy bien comunicada con las zonas mas turisticas de Londres, ya sea en bus, o metro.¡¡Volvere!!!
Thanks Roy .. I hope you don't mind that i translated your review into English ..
I spent 4 nights in London, doing the typical tourist travel and stayed here mainly to (website hidden) was a good host, friendly and any questions or problems that you have Rich will help you fix it. The room is pleasant, your wardrobe, your bed and your coffeemaker, sufficient for a tourist like me. Is located in a quiet part of London, and very well communicated with all the areas most London tourist need, whether by bus, or subway .. I would return !
Rich is a person that values privacy and responsibility. I am the same. As a result I have experienced independence and trust from his part. These are traits I truly share. His home is clean, smells great. The room is perfect. The entire flat amazing. The area is convenient whether you want to eat locally or travel to and from. I felt safe and in a clean neighboorhood. I highly recommend Rich as a host and his apartment. I will stay here again and again.
Rich was just wonderful! He helped me a lot when I first got to his place and also was kind enough to give me a ride to the Tube when I left since the weather was bad. Whenever he saw me, he asked me if everything was fine, which it was. His apartment is immaculate, and my room was very comfortable. The wifi and TV worked very well, and the shower was excellent. The neighborhood is quite safe and walkable to lots of shops with a convenient bus in front of his apartment and the Tube about a 15-minute walk away. Moreover, Westfield Stratford mall is only 1 Tube stop away. I recommend staying with Rich when you want reasonably priced accommodations not far from the centre of London (Zone 2).
My great stay in London was stressed by perfect, comfortable and cozy accommodation in Rich's house. Riche is very friendly, he absolutely respects your privacy, he is helpful and nice. The house is very near to the bust stop, in the quiet quarter of the town, and near to the Victoria park, excellent place for walks or jogging. I can recommend it for anybody and I hope I will return. Thanks Rich!
Rich is a great host, helped with everything. The place is nice and neat, exactly as it shows on the pictures.
I definitely recommend it !
