Sophie is fantastic! The place was very comfortable. Even though the rental is a room in her house, it felt very private. The living room and bedroom were not shared at all, so there were no issues space. The grocery store and the public transportation down the street was a definite plus. The internet worked fine in the kitchen, however reception was minimal from some parts of the living room and did not work at all in the bedroom. However, the rest of the comfortableness made up for it!
Thank you. Just one question: when you were on line in the living-room, was it through my wifi connection? Because just to specify, I sometimes work in the living-room (which is the guest's main area and second sleeping-room) and the connection is fine.
Staying at Sophie's home
At Sophie's home we had all we needed, 2 min to tram or railway station, the same distance is to Tesco. The journey to Central London takes about an hour. The owner was kind to us. But it was a little complicated when we had a shower, water was or so hot or suddenly - cold, because the boiler is warming up the water enough. There were Wi Fi, but speed is not great.
So, it is a good stay for those, who like calm place, to feel like at home and the price is not too expensive.
I wish good luck for Sophie
I think the internet speed was slow because it was a Bank Holiday with rainy & cold weather, a lot of people must have been online at the same time, so that slowed things down, but I work from home and watch a lot of Youtube videos with no problem. Yes, the shower temperature can change but soon comes back to the desired temperature. The train to Central London takes 30 minutes, so then it all depends where you are going in Central London. For example, the National Gallery is 5 minutes' walk from Charing Cross station, one of the train destinations.
Away from everything
I had a great experience in this place. Sophie the owner is very lovely and helpful to give you information and she was very kind to book me a cab the last day to go to the airport cause there was no train available at night. She's also very respectful and gives you all the privacy you need.The house is very charming and full with positive energy, located in a nice street, very close to the train station (trains to central London every 15 minutes) and to pubs and Tesco (open 24 hours). It was a very good experience cause I needed a place far from the London noise and crowd and this was perfect cause you can still reach the center in 30 minutes.
Thanks Enrico. By saying it's far away from everything, Enrico means it's far away from the crowds and tourists of London, whom he wanted to avoid. So he was very happy about that. As everyone has said, my flat is a quick train to London, 25 minutes into stations at the centre of London, so it's like taking the tube/metro.
Beetje klein wel ok
Beetje klein voor vier personen, douche bleef moeilijk op temperatuur vriendelijk en behulpzaam
Très pratique pour se rendre dans le centre de Londres par le train, accès direct
L'appartement était très confortable. Bon accueil de la part de Sophie qui nous a donnés de bons conseils pour passer d'agréables moments à Londres . Je recommande cette location à toutes les personnes qui veulent découvrir la capitale de l'Angleterre !
Merci beaucoup Nathalie, c'était un plaisir;-)
Appartement convenable et adapté à nos besoins
Appartement propre et adapté pour se sustenter par nous-mêmes; aussi, la propriétaire se fait très discrète même si elle habite le même appartement. Il est facile de se rendre à Londres par le réseau de fransport. Un de nos besoin important fut la communication en langue française puisque nous ne sommes pas tout à fait bilingues.
