Reviews of this property
I have cancelled my booking because a friend of mine had a family crisis and did not want to travel with me anymore. This was an unforeseen circumstance.
That's why I cancelled so late, on eve of arrival.
But I already paid for our stay. I tried to negotiate with Paula about our money.
We would have liked something refunded of the amount, my friend and I are still students and 300$+ is much money for us, and we got nothing for it!
Paula understood our situation but stopped responding to my messages after me talking about the money. Not responding to messages is quite rude in my opinion. If I don't longer exist for her, customer service totally gone...
I also said to Paula a full refund is not reasonable. Because I canceled too late.
Maybe Paula couldn't find replacement so quick (new guests instead of us).
Paula is a very kind, lovely and helpful person. We had a wonderful stay in her house. It was clean, the breakfast was good and our room was also in good conditions. Moreover it was easy to get to London. The thing we liked the most, was the nice atmosphere. You can easily talk with Paula about anything - we had lots of fun.
We would totally recommend a stay at Paulas house and would stay there again!

The house was perfectly clean. I felt in love with her garden and home decoration... Flowers everywhere! Her house is very comfortable, I felt like home. In the mornings, I found my breakfast already prepared on the table, and she gives you a lot of options! Paula was so nice to me and I felt incredibly good being in her home. She's always smiling and it makes you smile too!
I will definitely come back, and I encourage you to choose her house when coming to London!
I enjoyed very good attention from the family, very nice house in a very quiet, and is well connected to the center of London, certainly repeat !!!
Me ha encantado, muy buena atención por parte de la familia, la casa muy bonita, en un lugar muy tranquilo, y está bien comunicado con el centro de Londres, sin duda repetiría!!!
Paula is always very nice and their house is very clean, but you should strictly adhere to its rules, unfortunately. If you're looking for just a good place to stay and who reaches a decision acceptable breakfast is repealed spot on with her. In addition, the connection to the city is very good (daily costs £ 5.40) .They is very umgänglich.Wenn we are back in London, we are again very happy with their stay.
Paula ist grundsätzlich sehr nett und ihr Haus ist sehr sauber, aber man soll sich leider streng an ihre Regeln halten. Wenn man nur eine gute Unterkunft sucht und wem ein bescheidendes Frühstück reicht ist bei Ihr goldrichtig aufgehoben. Zudem ist die Anbindung zur Stadt sehr gut (tägliche Kosten 5,40 £ ).Sie ist sehr umgänglich.Wenn wir wieder in London sind ,werden wir wieder sehr gerne bei ihr Übernachten.
The room was small but cozy and the hostess very nice and helpful. The accessibility of the S-Bahn and thus the connection to the City was excellent (with Oyster card). Paula's room has a good price-performance ratio.
Das Zimmer war klein aber gemütlich und die Gastgeberin besonders nett und hilfsbereit. Die Erreichbarkeit der S-Bahn und somit die Anbindung an die City war hervorragend ( mit Oystercard ). Paulas Zimmer hat ein gutes Preis-Leistungsverhältnis.
We had such a lovely stay at Paulas home.
She and her family were so nice, kind and helpful. Really can't say anything bad about the stay in her house. We wouldn't hesitate to book her as a host again.
Thanks again for everything :)
My daughter and myself travelled for the first time in England.Paula and David received us with a natural and unordinary kindness.Their family is as warmful as their home.If you d like to spend quiet and peaceful holidays you ll be happy at Paula and David s home.
As I saw in others comments their house is very clean and tidy,the neighboorhood is also very quiet.
In order to acceed to London center:from London bridge underground station then the train til Grove park,very accessible.
Thank s Paula,I hope we’ll see again quickly.A lot of kisses to Maxwell!
Thank’s a lot it was a real pleasure to meet you.

Paula lies in its assessment in relation to me. It has been for us terribly there. We felt like in a prison. I went one day terribly bad and even on the day I was with my son 15:00 to 20:00 on the go. We at one time had breakfast longer, namely about half eight were invited very unfriendly breakfast to finish, before the actual time it was no longer allowed breakfast. Also we had everything to 100% read and kept us absulut to all rules.
The rest of the family was very nice. Especially my son felt treated very rude. Good was the cleanliness, the breakfast and the room.
Paula lügt in ihrer Bewertung in Bezug auf mich. Es ist für uns ganz schrecklich dort gewesen. Wir haben uns wie in einem Gefängnis gefühlt. Mir ging es einen Tag furchtbar schlecht und selbst an dem Tag war ich mit meinem sohn von 15:00 - 20:00 unterwegs. Wir haben ein einziges Mal länger gefrühstückt, nämlich von ca. halb acht an und wurden sehr unfreundlich aufgefordert das Frühstück zu beenden, vor der eigentlichen Zeit, die man nicht mehr frühstücken durfte. Auch hatten wir Alles zu 100% durchgelesen und uns absulut an Alle Regeln gehalten.
Der Rest der Familie war sehr nett. Vor Allem mein Sohn fühlte sich sehr unfreundlich behandelt. Gut war die Sauberkeit, das Frühstück und das Zimmer.
