We arrived to the apartment early, in the rain, and under threat of tube strike. We were panicked, but our host was not, and because of that our trip was saved and possibly enhanced. Thanks to our host's directions and recommendations, we were able to get into & around London with ease, in spite of the tube strike. We highly recommend Pia, anywhere she offers an Airbnb listing!
Pia was just a amazing with communication and service. I let slipped that it was my birthday tomorrow and I got a cake on my cake day. I thoroughly enjoyed my stay.
Ein schönes Zimmer, alles sauber und eine nette Gastgeberin. Das Zimmer liegt an einer stark befahrenen Straße, daher konnten wir die Fenster nicht öffnen. Dafür liegt es direkt an der U-Bahn und ist ein guter Startpunkt zu allen möglichen Orten in London.
Pia is very friendly, nice in comunation and her advice for tourist help wos much better than at the hotels recepcion.
Me and my twenty years old Therizia were happy in the flet, which is realy near center, Nadia
Thanks Pia. Your home is nice :) it's near the underground and can be easily reached! We know you are moving and Hope you find your dream house outside London very soon! Cheers!

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!
