About Lubna

I live in the main house with my family, and the studio apartment is totally independent from the main house with its own door.

I started this business over twelve years ago as I love to meet people of different nationalities , and enjoy learning about different cultures and common threads that unite us.

I enjoy South Asian Classical and Semi Classical music going to Museums and Art Galleries. Gardening is another of my passions and love to visit the Royal Horticultural Society's Garden at Wisley which luckily is only 20 minutes drive away. My favourite city is Venice.

Lubna purchased this studio in 1982

Why Lubna chose London

I bought this property about 35 years ago as I always wanted to live on this road. The beautiful houses with big gardens always attracted me. The cherry trees and the winding road was another plus point.

Guestbook comments from the owner

This was our first trip to London and it was wonderful. We met Lubna at the the studio and she was so kind to explain everything we needed to know for a comfortable stay. The location is great and was a welcome place to stay after long days visiting the busy city. The amenities were great and we visited in winter so the warmth of the room was perfect after a cold day in the city. The tubes and buses were a very short walk away and the neighborhood was safe with plenty of places to eat and find groceries nearby. We would consider coming again and staying in the same place. Recommended for: Sightseeing, Tourists without a Car.

Quaint and quiet property with lovely owners

  • 5 of 5

This studio apartment located near the Southfields train station, about 20 minutes outside of London, is a nice little getaway that's quaint and quiet. If you are looking for somewhere outside the city that provides you all your necessities, this is the place for you. Now, the property is certainly a studio apartment, mind you, so if you want something more upscale, you should probably look closer to the city. However, if you're looking for a cost-effective, quiet stay that covers all your needs, book this place today!

The Southfields station is also located in Zone 3, so it's slightly more expensive to take the tube than if you were to stay within the city limits of Zone 1, and the train ride is obviously a little longer than you might experience otherwise too, though it's a popular station anyway so it's not really an inconvenience. Granted, those things are relatively minuscule and worthwhile if you want be outside the city.

The last thing I'd like to touch on is the fact that the owners are very accommodating and helpful, moreso than you'd likely experience at a hotel. My wife and I arrived without one of our bags and they took on this problem as their own, providing us their phone number and making sure the bag arrived at their house without issue while we were out sightseeing. This is the aspect of this property that set itself apart. Their hospitality and help were invaluable, so I really couldn't recommend this place higher due to that factor. Considering it was our first time in London, feeling welcomed right away by these folks was a big relief and helped us enjoy our stay more than I could express. Thank you again to Lubna and family for a lovely stay!

Clean, comfortable little studio apartment.

  • 5 of 5

Although the flat is quite small it certainly had everything we required. It even has a small washer/dryer if you need to do laundry. Just a short walk to the tube and bus stops and in a quaint, quiet, safe neighborhood. Lubna was the perfect host, there if you need her but also respected our privacy.

Convenient

  • 3 of 5

We couldn't fault our host Lubna, or the location which was perfect for us visiting our son nearby in Southfields. But really, the space was very small for anything other than showering and sleeping. So it is fine if your only requirements are to come and go.

Cozy and convenient

  • 4 of 5

My companion and I were on our first sight-seeing trip to London. He coming from The Netherlands and me from the US. Lubna gave us excellent directions from Heathrow and we found the location to be easy to find and close to Southfields station. The property is located in a quiet residential neighborhood which was a welcome respite from long days of sight-seeing. We were particularly grateful for the well-equipped kitchen and the washer/dryer was especially appreciated. We were able to shop in the nearby grocery for breakfast items and snacks. We visited two locale eateries. The Original Fish and Chip Company was a terrific take-away and we also tried Triphal (Indian) and can recommend both places. We loved the proximity to the tube station and were grateful for the fact that it was a very short walk for us from the studio. We took advantage of the local bank (Barclay's ATM) and grocery shop (Sainsbury's) and visited The Village Butcher's for some very fine sausages on our last night in town when we cooked a dinner for ourselves. I should also mention that the wifi service in the studio was excellent and much appreciated. I would heartily recommend this property to anyone wishing to visit London and not be mid-city. Accommodations were comfortable and a great find. Lubna and her family were warm and welcoming and helpful and we thank them for their hospitality.

Great experience

  • 5 of 5

Our purpose of the UK trip was to watch the Wimbledon Championships. It was quite easy to get to the Wimbledon Tennis Club from the studio. It was only 10 minutes on foot to the Queue for grounds admission. So my wife and I could enjoy watching the Championships very much.

We will definitely come back to the studio again.
