Guestbook comments from the owner

This studio is the perfect place for a single individual or a couple to use as a home base while staying in London. Located within easy walking distance of multiple transportation options (including tube, bus, and regional rail), it is convenient to not only the heart of London, but also the center of the charming and safe neighborhood of Putney. Angela, the landlord, is a gracious hostess and provides lots of helpful information and is readily available when and if you need her. I greatly enjoyed my stay here and would highly recommend it to others.

Cute and cosy

  • 4 of 5

The unit is very small, but for one person it was perfect and had everything I needed for my stay in London. Good shopping close by, very easy to access transportation, quiet neighbourhood.

Clean, good value, good location easy access Lndn

  • 4 of 5

We stayed here for four nights in April. It is small and compact as others and owner (Angela) have said. However, everything you could need is in the flat - very ingenious use of space!! It is good value for the price but probably not for anyone staying in all day. We were out all day so it was basically sleeping and occasional meals and for that it was great. Short (15-20 minute) walk to the Tube which even for us over 70’s was not a problem and good exercise. Pull out bed doubled as sofa for sitting and watching TV which had lots of channels. Convenient to shops and restaurants. Agree with one of the other reviewers that the bathroom sink is very awkward to use and we ended up using the other sink in the kitchen closet – yes, the kitchen is in a closet but it works. Readily available on-street parking outside the flat. Good WiFi. Quiet residential neighbourhood.

Overall – clean, good value, good location with easy access to Central London. We would go back.

Owner's Response: Thank you for your comprehensive review! I'm glad you enjoyed your stay. I'm sorry the tube walk took you so long - it's about 11 minutes but you need to walk fast! If you return, I suggest you take the bus/train combination (2 minute walk away) that gets you into Victoria or Waterloo in 20 minutes! All the best, Angela.

Comfortable, compact flat.

  • 3 of 5

My wife and I enjoyed our two day three night visit to London. This flat was about what we expected. It met our needs nothing more. Clean and adequately appointed, all of our needs were seen to. Angela communicated all arrangements well as we found entrance to the flat without difficulty. One note of importance, my wife and I are 67 years of age. We found getting in and out of the pull out bed a challenge. The walk to the East Putney underground station was more like a 20minute walk unless you cross a busy street at a non-crossing. I recommend this flat for a couple under 45 years old who are budget minded. The Howells

Owner's Response: Thank you for your review. I'm sorry you had a problem getting in and out the sofa bed. It is from IKEA and we chose it because it is one of the most comfortable available. Regarding transport, there are many options available and the tube (normally a brisk 11 minute walk) is only one of them. Most of our guests take our recommended route of bus/train (2 minute walk from the apartment, 20-25 minutes into Victoria or Waterloo) and return via the direct night bus, 35 minutes from Trafalgar Square (2 minute walk). We hope that despite the challenges you faced, the Studio provided good value priced from £60 a night, which is excellent value for London zone 2. Kind regards, Angela

Wonderful place

  • 4 of 5

The flat is clean and comfortable. It is very, very small. It is well equipped and conveniently located near bus lines, tube stops, trains, restaurants, and markets. Communication with the owner was very prompt and cordial. The only draw back was the size of the bathroom sink, which was placed in a way to make it useless.

Owner's Response: Thank you for your review! The Studio is compact but due to its functional design is normally comfortable for two people. I'm glad that you enjoyed your stay.

adorable flat in great locatiom!

  • 5 of 5

We loved this flat! While it was a bit small, it had everything we needed, and worked for us perfectly. The bed was surprisingly comfortable (it was a pull-out), and the location was awesome! Quick walk to tube station, and lots of places to eat in close vicinity. The Queen Adelaide will forever live near and dear in our hearts! Thanks again Angela!

East Putney Studio

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I enjoyed our stay in this studio apartment for our London vacation. Angela was great and very responsive to any questions or needs we had. This was a very good base for our travels. It's very close to multiple bus stops and East Putney tube station maybe a 10-12 min walk. The actual space was a little small but expected as a studio. The space was utilized very efficiently and had everything we needed and was clean. Again we enjoyed our stay and look forward to coming back to London again. Just a tip, the Queen Adelaide pub is just around the corner and a great place to eat or just get a pint 😄
