Antonia is a very nice and kind person, who really cares about her guests. When we had questions she was always very helpful, we had a really good time staying at her place. On our last day she even woke up at 4am just to say goodbye.
The rooms were very clean and tidy and the breakfast was tasty, Antonia offers a great variety of food. The pancakes she made on sunday were very yummy!
Her pregnant dog is so cute he wants to be petted like a cat.
Me and my husband can recommend staying at Antonia's to anyone.
Antonia ist eine sehr nette und freundliche Person, die sich wirklich um ihre Gäste kümmert. Wenn wir Fragen hatten war sie immer sehr hilfsbereit, kurz: wir hatten eine richtige gute Zeit bei ihr. An unserem letzten Tag ist sie sogar extra um 4 Uhr morgens aufgestanden, nur um sich von uns verabschieden zu können.
Die Zimmer waren sehr sauber und ordentlich und das Frühstück war lecker, Antonia bietet eine große Auswahl an Nahrungsmitteln. Die Pancakes, die sie am Sonntag für uns gemacht hat, waren sehr lecker!
Ihr schwangerer Hund war wirklich süß und wollte wie eine Katze gestreichelt werden.
Mein Mann und ich können einen Aufenthalt bei Antonia wirklich jedem empfehlen.
I stayed in the flat for six nights. Everything was as advertised: great location, clean, good kitchen access and Antonia is incredibly helpful in offering suggestions to maximize your London stay without breaking the bank. She can also offer very sound advice on how to avoid unwanted headaches that are part of large city life.
Antonia est très accueillante elle nous a aidé dans nos réservations de restaurant n'hésitant pas à téléphoner elle même . Elle nous a très bien reçu. L'appartement est très bien situé et très confortable, proche des transports mais il est aussi possible d'accéder rapidement à pied à différents sites touristiques Antonia fait tout ce qui est possible pour qu'on se sente bien chez elle . Si nous retournons à Londres ce sera avec plaisir que nous la recontacterons
We stayed at Antonias place for 3 nights and it was great! She is a very friendly and communicative person and had some very helpful recommendations and tips. The room was very individual, pretty and clean. I would definitely book this room again. Everything was just as described or even better. We felt very welcomed and really enjoyed our stay!
When we first took the underground to Kennington it was easy finding the apartment. Unfortunately, I had written to Antiona that we would arrive at 10pm when I ment 10am. Luckily, Antonia said we could put our suitcases in the flat until the cleaner had been there and return a couple of hours later. Antonia showed us the area, the food stores, and the history behind all of it, which we appreciated! The breakfast was delicious, and all of the dinnerware also had its charm and background. Antonia gave us good advise our whole visit which were very helpfull! She is a hard working woman whom put alot of time, both on her artwork and apartment, as well on us, her guests. The apartment is exactly as beautiful in real life as in the pictures. The beds are very comfortable, but one thing that you should be aware of is the traffic. There are constantly ambulances coming and going just outside the house wich can wake you up. I am from the country side, so I'm use to quiet nights. If you are a heavy sleeper then no problems!
Last but not least. Antonia is a welcoming, warm hearted woman whom really care for you and your visit in London. Just getting the chance to live in a apartment with her in this busy city was a pleasure. Thank you Antoina, xx Elin and Simone.
We had a great stay at Antonia's! The room was neat and cozy, everything we needed was there and the location is perfect with a tube station at 5 minutes walk. Antonia was always around for a chat or some advice. Ideal room for a weekend in London.
Antonia is a really great host. She is very welcoming and very helpful. We rented the space for a photoshoot so in order to create the set, we have to shift many of her furniture. Antonia was very patient and even offered her creative ideas about how we can make the set better. Overall, it was a great experience!

Experiences to cherish
Barcelona Spain - drinking sherry eating slithers of cured wild boar eating off barrels in a tiny hole in the wall with fisher men sipping cava 5pm midweek.
skiing in Zermatt with my boyfriend and coming across a sledge being pulled by couple huskies followed by their frolicking puppies on a wonderful clear sunny out for an afternoon.
Climbing a mountain in the dark to see the volcanos on Stromboli Italy.
getting lost in George Town Washington looking at doors.
diving for sea urchins off a surfboard with a plastic bag of lemons with some friends in Greece, that was a great lunch.
I am a happy relaxed person who lives for good conversation, beautiful surroundings and creative inspirations.
