Alison made me feel very welcome by contacting before the stay and sending detailed directions. I loved the area which is well connected to central London and had a friendly feel. The house was tidy and homely and the room was quite spacious with plenty of storage and some thoughtfully provided guidebooks. The bed was really comfortable. I didn't get to meet Alison but her son was very helpful and really pleasant. A good budget base for exploring London. Wi Fi details were provided.
After a wee-rocky start-the room I had booked was a completely different room than was shown in the pictures-I had a good experience at Alison's. I stayed with Alison, her son and daughter for about 7 weeks. Alison was just lovely-extremely friendly and very welcoming. She introduced me to her friends and invited me to join her on social activities. Her home was clean and located in a lovely neighbourhood-super convenient for transport. I didn't realize the household was a smoking one and had a bit of a hard time with that. Even though my hosts smoked outside and made much effort to accomodate my non-smoking ways, the smoke still found its way into my room. Also, while the room is lovely and large, it is in the middle of all the household action (situated beside the main living room and toilet). I recommend bringing ear plugs because of the home's charmingly creaky floors and thin walls, it can be quite noisy. For those who are out and about and just need a place to crash, this place is perfect. For others who want a more long-term stay who don't smoke, I recommend a conversation with Alison and her kids about smoking boundaries, as I am confident that they will kindly oblige your needs.
My very first journey with Airbnb was to Alisons house.
The room was very comfortable and clean and Alison provided towels as well as everything else I needed like a charging cable or a hair dryer.
Alison really is a great host and I would definately recommend her!
Thank you again for this really nice stay at your house.
Alison is the best host ever!!! After five minutes staying with her I already fell in love... Seriously, I really enjoyed staying with her and her family. Absolutely appreciated: Watching football with me in the evenings... Definitely like to return someday! :-)
Alison's bright room is very nice and she is a great host! I had a wonderful stay in her house and will definitely come back if I have the chance to go to London again! Many thanks!!!
My very first Airbnb stay was with Alison and her kids. Although I did not stay in the room pictured, the room was clean with towels, and everything I needed to lay out my sight-seeing plans of London. Alison was helpful, gracious and personable as were her kids. I was a bit concerned upon my arrival as Alison told me the house had been broken into the night before and she had just replaced the locks, however, while walking the neighborhood I felt perfectly comfortable with the area and appreciated her being forthright with her disclosure of the incident. The room I stayed in was downstairs along the hallway from the living room, toilet and kitchen which made it a high traffic area. It was a little stuffy with only one window that opened towards the garden. Overall, as a place to feel welcomed, and use as a home base while touring London I would stay with Alison again!
Alison is extremely helpful, very kind, more than words can describe how good host she is. She helped me with everything much more than she needed. I really enjoyed my stay in London and I would certainly come back again. Alison, thank you again on everything from the bottom of my heart! You are the best!
I definately recommend Alison to anyone in search for a good and nice host and place to stay! :)))
Lovely and friendly household. Would recommend.
I stayed with Alison for 10 days in May. She and her daughter are very pleasant and friendly.
The room matches the description and photos. The bed is comfortable and it was easy to get a good night’s sleep.
The house is in a quiet area with good tube and bus links to central London.
Overall a very good experience and I would have no hesitation in recommending Alison.
Nice place to stay in london, quiet area. 5 min to archway station (zone 2) walking or you have the bus stop just in front of the house. Alison is friendly and helpful, nice host. The room was ok, clean and with everything I needed.
Allison was the perfect airbnb guest. she communicated well, very friendly, cheerful, low maintenance and left the apt very clean and in great condition. She is welcome back here any time--- highly recommended... Thank You
Alison and her daughter are very nice, frank and open-hearted peoples. It was amazing to find a clean and knit apartment once they had left. They are truly wonderful peoples and perfect guests. Do not hesitate to invite them to your house!!! Vlad
