Lylia was a perfect host. Everything worked smothely, it was extremely clean, and very spectacular nice surrounding. Close to all nice places like Soho, China town, Covernt garden, Oxford street etc.
Thanks for two wonderful days!
Our host met us at the bus stop, helped with our luggage and took us to our home away from home. the room was beautifully prepared, with water, restaurant suggestions, plenty of literature, refrigerator space and basic food supplies including juice, coffee, tee and cereal. We stayed for 6 nights so the washing machine was a wonderful bonus, as was the view of the London Eye from our room!
Lylia was available for advice and a chat whenever we wanted but was never intrusive.
Lylia is a fantastic host! Her place is even better than described. Modern, super clean, and in a perfect location. We had a comfortable & welcoming stay!
Lylia was right there to greet us at the designated spot, with a friendly smile. She explained everything extremely well, and made us feel very welcome. The accommodations were as listed, with a real feeling of being home.
Lylia heeft een heel mooi appartement op een geweldige locatie met uitzicht op de London Eye. Ruime, mooie, schone kamer en badkamer.
Lylia communiceert heel fijn, reageert snel op mailtjes en stuurt proactief handige informatie. Je kunt goed afspraken met haar maken en ze heeft erg haar best gedaan om rekening te houden met onze aankomst- en vertrektijden.
Ze is heel gastvrij, je mag gebruik maken van haar servies, koelkast en keuken. Een echte aanrader!
Very central, large room with good en suite facilities. Good bed and very clean room. Only downsides were lack of any breakfast such as bread, cereals etc and also lack of enough hot water to have 2 showers (one morning and one just before bedtime ) in the day.
Dear Vivek, thanks for the stay and review. As I said in the room description, I do not provide breakfast, but there are milk, butter, jam, tea, coffee in the kitchen, guests can make tea or coffee. As for the hot water, the hot water is enough for 4 people to use. During your stay, somehow, the hot water run out after just your single morning shower. I didn't expect it, it was my fault. I am sorry. Next time I will make sure the emergency switch is always on, even if there is just one guest.
Lylia was a very good host going out of the way to make our visit comfortable. Her room is bang opposite the London eye and very near to Westminster Abbey and many attractions of London. Very centrally located. Highly recommend it.
