I am a Multi-Media Visual Artist and Creative Practitioner in Education. I live in London England with a Greek/Canadian origins and work internationally.
I love everything there is to be enjoyed in life and travel is on top of my list!
Alina was very friendly and helpful. She even loaned us a cell phone. The flat was nice, clean and had art throughout. This location in London has very complete with food store very near and good transport, plus pub and fish and chips spot. Alina is most welcoming.
Perfect, that's the word I would use to sum up our stay at Alina. Lovely flat, clean, calm, quiet, well decorated and warm. 5 minutes walk from tube and buses in a very good area.
Alina has been very welcoming and we communicate easily. I definitely recommend this place if you want to stay in London.
Thanks you Alina.
I stayed with Alina in her flat in London for a week. It's a wonderful home with a warm feeling and everything you need. Alina went out of her way to make sure I was comfortable and we shared some great chats and meals. I recommend Alina's place to anyone looking for a home for a while in London, and look forward to seeing Alina again.
Stayed with my cousin at Alina's appartment for 9 days in the end of July. Alina was away, so we were met by her friend Susanna.They both were very fast and nice to communicate with. Susanna gave us ditailed directions and made us feel comfortable and safe. The place is clean, bright, colorful and has its unique character created by Alina's paintings and many small, carefully arranged things. There was all we needed: peace, privacy, comfort, fresh air, safety, bed linen, towels, equipped kitchen, hot water, washing mashine and so on. To my mind, the place is perfect for a couple/a couple with a child or a friend. Tesco is steps away, as well as many eating places and shops. We tried restaurant Cats, which we enjoyed a lot. Subway station with Victoria and Picadilly lines and the bus station with many different routs are about 7 minutes walk. It was easy to get anywhere we planned to.
Susanna was flexible with out check out time, which was great for us, since we had a late flight! On the down side - the subway station has only stairs, so we struggled a bit with our luggage.
Overall we enjoyed our stay very much. The appartment was so cozy and well equipped that it was our home from home! Many thanks to Alina and Susanna! Recommend!
A grest location. Just the right size for one very tall person and a shorter spouse. For us it would have been cramped if we had been four people as the sofa bed is small.
The flat is lovely and well equipped. Alina had left everything for us to use and the WiFi connection worked beautifully.
I am very grateful for Alina and her friend Susku to host me in Alina's flat for a short week at the end of June 2013. My trip to London was urgent and not foreseen and Alina replied fast and organized everything properly. While she was away for Turkey, her friend Susku met me at the flat, told good places to go around and was very helpful during all my stay in terms of additional staff I needed.
Alina's flat is cosy and charming. Art works on the walls are very inspiring and create relaxing atmosphere. I loved sunny kitchen with a big window and convenient space to have a cup of coffee in the morning starring at the top of buildings and little garden on the back of the building.
Besides, flat itself location was very convenient for me to reach City London and London Picadilly and it is a direct tube line to Heathrow.
Simply, loved it! Next time if available will stay there.
Great stay. Alina is lovely person and the flat is cute and everything works. Only thing is it is more deep into Finsbury Park than Islington but if you don't mind the extra distance this is a perfect hiding spot.
I'm very happy to have been Alina's guest! We've had great time in London and enjoyed our stay. Alina is a great host, we felt us so welcomed by her!
Alina's house location is very convenient, it's only 5 min walk to Finsbury Park tube station and also a direct (Picadilly) line to Heathrow Airport (in case yu have an early departure you can use the opportunity to sleep a bit in the train :)
The flat itself is very nice and clean and comfortable, especially the double-bed with new mattress, I slept like a newborn :) And also the red sofa on the small roof terrace is great, I enjoyed the last night London sky!
To all who is going to visit London I highly reccomend Alina and her beautiful house to stay in. Alina, thank you so much and I hope to see you one day again!

I booked quite last minute, and Alina was quick to respond and confirm the booking. She met me at the flat, made me a coffee, and was a great host. The flat is lovely, had all I needed, and made my weekend in London as smooth and enjoyable as I'd wished for. Highly recommended!
