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.

Perfect out-of-the-way location.

All was as promised. During a busy week of research and other work, I appreciated having a home-base where I could rest and have some quiet. Thanks, Angela!

Beau quartier, excellente disponibilité de la propriétaire

  • 3 of 5

Appartement propre, beau quartier très calme, proximité du métro et des épiceries, disponibilité appréciée de la propriétaire. Appartement très petit mais fonctionnel. L'étroitesse de l'appartement pourrait être un point négatif pour un séjour de plus d'une semaine.

Suits us perfectly!

  • 5 of 5

We have stayed in this studio several times, both travelling as a couple, and with a larger party where we´ve booked the studio together with the large apartment upstairs to provide an extra bedroom. We actually stayed in this room before the owner divided the ground floor into to apartments, it was then the large bedroom of that flat, so we where very curious about how the owner could squeeze in both a kitchenette and a bathroom into the bedroom.

The result works very well for us. What we love the most about this place is actually that it isn´t in central tourist-packed London, we love getting a small impression of how it actually is to live here, going to the local stores, pubs and restaurants, shopping mall, the playgrounds (when we bring the kids).

One must know that this is not a hotel room; it is the definition of compact living in fact. So the room is not very spacious, but it contains everything we need. Already booked our next stay!

Greetings from Sweden.

Well-equipped, but TINY and far from central London...

  • 3 of 5


The apartment was clean and very well equipped. Quiet street. Owner was very responsive and provided good customer service. Good shower and water pressure. Was very convenient to have a small refrigerator in the room.


East Putney feels very far from central London. The apartment was about a 15 minute walk to the nearest tube station, which might not sound like much...but if you are traveling into and out of central London several times a day, it can get wearisome. There is a bus just around the corner (170) to Victoria Station...which can take 30 minutes under optimal traffic conditions and 40 minutes if there is heavy traffic. And from Victoria, you typically need to change lines (in other words, a trip to the British Museum, etc. can be an hour each way.

Also, the apartment is VERY SMALL...actually one tiny room (10x10?) with a tiny shower/toilet. It is smartly designed to make maximum use of the small space, but it definitely feels cramped.

Owner's Response: I'm sorry to hear your concerns. London has many widespread attractions and the Studio is just 14 minutes by train into Waterloo - home of London Eye, Southbank, Westminster and much more. From there you can walk (Or 3 minutes by tube) to other locations such as Piccadilly, Leicester Square and Trafalgar Square. The tube takes normally about 11 minutes walking briskly. It seems you took the longest routes into the centre, so I can understand your frustration. I'm not sure if you read the detailed transport tips we provide in the Welcome Folder. I agree the Studio is small, approximately 15 x 15, exactly as depicted in the photographs. But most of our guests find it suits their purposes, providing a cosy living area (with cooling overhead fan) to return to in the evening, then converting to a comfortable bed at night before embarking on another day of sightseeing. They comment on the charming, quiet, and safe neighbourhood, far from the busy crowds and noise of the centre. They appreciate the leafy aspect and flowers through the large bay window. They often walk down to the river and enjoy a meal or a glass of wine in one of the riverside restaurants. I hope you find something more suited to your needs on your next visit to London.

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.
