You can however jump on the tube or bus to shop till you drop at the West End.

Overall Guest Satisfaction

Check In
  • We had a nice stay at Iyabo´s home. She was very friendly and helpful. The city is easily reached by bus 24/7.

  • My stay with Iyabo was delightful. I only stayed there for a couple of days which meant I didn't get to see her or her family that much, but it was overall an awesome experience.
    Iyabo is very welcoming and made me feel at home the minute i set foot in at her place.
    I will definitely go back the next time I'm in London.

  • Iyabo was a great host. London was our first stop so we had jet lag and kept odd hours. She was very kind and flexible. The free WiFi was a little unreliable. Iyabo's home is small, but if all you need is a place to sleep it is perfect.

  • During the 4 nights and 5 days at Iyabo's house, my friend and I had a great time. We were very touched by her hospitality and it was always great talking to her (especially when we were praising my friend's new Topshop romper xD). We would have wasted a lot of money if Iyabo had not told us about the buses that stopped by the street :) (Thank you!) I personally liked how the rooms were always freshly scented and the bathroom windows peeked open. The fresh towels and the small fridge in the room were of great help. We felt very much at home and hope this review has a positive impact on a future decision.

  • Iyabo really made me feel really welcome, she left me alone to come or go as I pleased which I really appreciated. Everything I needed in budget, really good value for money. I would recommend Iyabo place to anyone . Thanks Iyabo .

  • Wir hatten eine sehr schöne Woche in London und können Iyabo als Gastgeberin nur wärmstens empfehlen. Die Innenstadt ist rund um die Uhr sehr schnell mit Bus und Bahn erreichbar.

  • be hosted by Lyabo is like visiting a friend. She makes you feel at home. the room is big enough and clean. Unfortunately I had not much time to stay with her and her son. She allow me to prepare the dinner and we had a very pleasant free time.
    The position is good to reach the center of London (bus and tube).
    For sure i'll return to Lyabo's flat when i'll be in London. Thanks for the ospitality!
