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.
Lylia was excellent! She was very helpful and the communication through airbnb with her was easy. She met us close by and walked us to the apartment.
The room was excellent, very large and clean. Free tea/coffee amenities and washing machine in the apartment is very handy!
The location is perfect, close to Waterloo station, also easy to walk to main sights.
Overall our experience in London and with Lylia was exceptional. We would highly recommend staying here and we would stay here again.
Dear Melissa and Kenn, I had good time and great chats with you during you stayed at my home. You are such good guests! But somehow, I don't know the reason, I just found out that the review I wrote to you just disappeared, so I have to leave my review again here. I welcome you to come back in the future! Hope your rest of journey is fantastic.
We had a wonderful stay with Lylia. Her home is beautiful and is so close to all the major tourist attractions in London. You can see the London Eye from your window! It is very close to two major underground stops. The room has a comfy king sized bed, a nice TV and a beautiful en suite bathroom. It was like staying in a hotel. I really enjoyed speaking with Lylia and getting to know her a little in the short time we were there. I would highly recommend staying with her!
I have just stayed at Lylia's house and it was a great experience.. it was clean, the host was nice and also her response to my query was answered in a flash.. She even booked me an airport cab to get me to the airport.. she even make sure that i reach at the airport..one word to describe her place and her hospitality is "excellent" ! definitely will recomend her place to anyone... :)
Lylia was very friendly and helpful. The room is large and it was clean. Its a quiet neighborhood and at the same time close to everything. We liked it a lot.
