Hello I'm Bruno!
I am originally from Barcelona and I moved to London in 1998 to start a career in hospitality-hotel management.
I am passionate about people and travel. I love cafes, dining out, socialising, going out with friends.
I am delighted to share my flat with travellers from around the globe.
My other half is Mint. He recently moved to London and he is originally from Thailand.
We both love London and enjoy what the city has to offer.
We aim to provide a comfortable stay while you visit this fabulous city and show you another side of London. There is more to it than theatre land and Big Ben.
Due to our working schedule we are most of the time away, our shift patterns tend to vary from time to time. Mint is usually available if I am away.
We will be very happy to meet you and come up with some tips to round your overall experience in London.
Our home is in a perfect location to start exploring the city.
Bruno & Mint
