Pia je velmi přátelská a pečlivá. Pokoj je čistý, hluk z ulice není slyšet. Ubytování je blízko centra a přímo u stanice metra. Pokud jedete na pár dní do Londýna, tak je to ideální volba. Doporučujeme.
Very nice host, and nice room, everything was very clean and spacious. She offered us information about the city but aswell gave us space and privacy, so this was an awesome stay and we would come back. It is very close to subway and bus, so perfect for London. takes only 15 min to the city.
Pia was very nice and flexible about arival times. We found the room very pleasing, though the highway close by was very noisy, but we got used to it. Pia welcomed us and was overall a very sweet lady. We did not see her much, she worked and we were out sightseeing.
For the price and location, a very nice offer. She even spoiled us with pastry :)
Pia is a very welcoming and accomodating host ! The room and the bathroom were very clean and quiet, and Pia keeps it proper everyday. The flat is very well connected anyone can reach Central London in 20 min.
Thank you Pia, you was very polite and nice. The room is clean and comfortable. Location is excelent just 1min to undergrount.
Although it was only for a short 2 days, my stay with pia was incredibly good. Pia is a super host, before my trip she gave me detailed directions to her apartment and accommodated with all my other requests. I hope i didn't cause much trouble but Pia was extremely accommodating and helpful. Note that (This should probably already be in the description provided though) if you're carrying a large suitcase, Pia's apartment is on the second floor and you will have to carry it up the stairs. Also remember to check for any upgrading works if you're coming from the tube, during my stay the district line was in service so i had to take a detour and carry my suitcase up several stairs. Other than that, Bromley-by-bow is extremely convenient to the city centre because of the tube, (It's only a short 5 min walk from the tube station to the apartment - just walk all the way straight) and a really quiet neighbourhood. The room is perfect and exactly like the picture, clean sheets and extremely clean bathroom, ample space for one or even two. Happy New Year Pia!!! I hope i wasn't much of a trouble ! You were an amazing host. :)

...... 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!
