L'accoglienza e il soggiorno è stato perfetto!!
Era quello che cercavamo a Londra!
Pia gentilissima e molto disponibile.
Ambiente comodo e molto pulito.
Ottima la posizione, praticamente in metropolitana :D
Ciao Pia....grazie e alla prossima! ;)
Esperienza positiva. Stanza piccola, ma esattamente come da descrizione. Zona 2, quindi molto centrale e comoda in quanto la stazione della metropolitana si trova a pochi metri dall'alloggio. Comodissimo anche per fare spesa. Pia è molto accogliente e cortese, disponibile a dare indicazioni e fare quattro chiacchiere. Sconsiglio la stanza a persone rumorose, le regole della casa sono molto rigide.
Pia was a very nice host. She helped us a lot arranging the transport from the airport to her apartment and into the City of London. The room was really comfortable, clean and bright. The apartment is perfectly located to the underground station. Her apartment is just recommendable!
Nous avons beaucoup apprécié l'accueil chaleureux de Pia. La chambre était telle que nous la voyons sur les photos, propre et avec un petit frigo très pratique et une boulloire. La salle-de-bains est également très propre. Il est très facile de se rendre au Centre ville, le métro se trouvant qu'à une minute à pied et en 10 minutes environ vous arriver déjà à Tower Hill, et en 20 minutes à Westminster. Pia nous a bien conseillé pour les visites à faire et lieux à visiter. Le logement se trouve au bord d'une route à grand trafique, mais les fenêtre étant bien isolée nous n'avons jamais été gênées par le bruit.
La descrizione dell'abitazione e della stanza corrispondono alla realtà. Tutto è molto comodo e pulito. Il quartiere è tranquillo, la metropolitana è a un minuto a piedi dalla casa. Pia è stata una padrona di casa molto accogliente, gentile e disponibile.
Pia is a very nice host. We had a warm welcome. We had our privacy as much as we wanted, but could ask for anything, anytime!
The room is exactly as described. It's clean and cozy. The neighborhood is not the prettiest, but very safe!
You can get some food at 2 supermarkets nearby and Pia provides coffee and milk for every morning.
Thank you so much Pia! We had a wonderful time in London!

How to say all that Pia represented in my stay in London?
She took care of me like I was her daughter, every day asking if everything was right, suggesting itineraries and tours.
The room is spacious and comfortable, the bed is wonderful, great pillows, all with cleaning smell. Every day she put more coffee on the table.
Regarding to the facilities, the kettle and the mini fridge were spectacular. There is a hair dryer, which certainly helped!
To my friends runners, there is a nearby park and a river where you can run a 10 km route.
Great stay! Wonderful hostess!
Sad to know that she's moving. but glad to know that goes near the sea to enjoy more and more life (deservedly!).
All the best to you, Pia!!

About the Host, Pia
...... and I have lived in London most of my life. But, I was born in southern Italy, where my close family is still living - Positano - on the stunning Amalfi Coast.
I love walking by the river Thames or, in one of the lush parks of which London abounds.
My perfect end of the day would be dinner at an Indian restaurants, followed by an evening at theatre - I love musicals!
This is my motto: Be Happy!
