Hi my name is Lisa I am listing a the 'Great Central London Garden Flat' located in Greater London.
A very convenient walk to Paddington station to catch the train to the airport, the subway that takes you all over the city, and buses on the main street just within blocks away! Lisa was super helpful and hospitable.
The bed in her extra room is very comfortable, and the room brings in great light all throughout the day. I had a great experience and would definitely stay again if available.
Wanted a place in London where we'd have the freedom to come and go, close to Paddington, wifi, clean/comfortable, and reasonably priced. We were going to be in London for 6 days.
Lisa's place met all of those criteria and lived up to expectations.
And the bed was super comfortable! We'd try to stay with Lisa again, if we were back in London.
Our stay with Lisa & Zoe in their lovely flat near Hyde Park has been pleasant, it has been a good first experience with this site. Thank you!
The bedroom itself was very comfortable and a nice place to crash. Lisa was not around very much at all, and I was glad that I had a towel with me, as it wasn't clear if any towels in the bathroom were guests towels. Lisa was nice the one time I saw here though. Also, the location (near Paddington tube) was very convenient. The last time I was in London I stayed with a friend in Leyton so it was nice to be much more central and not have to commute a half an hour to get to the city.
In regards to lisa's review about me & my stay: first off you're the rude one for calling me a "rude moody sulking child" i spent a good 10-15 mins with you in your dining room getting acquainted. So there was time to talk. Everything seemed fine. I never really seen you in the flat during my stay.i never was rude to you or your daughter. Everytime I seen your daughter I always made sure I told her hi. As for noise throughout the night, we kept as quiet as possible when coming in the early mornings. I see no point making a big deal coming out to the street to direct us to your place as we accidentally missed your street. Leaving makeup on the walls isnt true. Im almost 30 years old who holds several professional jobs & live in a clean apartment. Im far from a rude messy child. If i was such a problem you should have asked me to leave... Or tell me how you felt in person... But you didn't.
Lisa's communication prior to me arriving in London was bad. She's not great in replying back to messages.
Her flat located in Paddington is in a great location. Paddington station is super close and the bus stop is just a few steps away from her flat. Oxford circus is about a 20-30 min walk from the flat. If you're into anything arabic, food or hookah, Edgware rd. is walking distance.
As for the flat, I rented her 1 bedroom, size is comfy for 1 ok for 2. She provided basic breakfast which was nice... toast, milk, cereal, juice.
Things to make note of... the skinny steep stairs going down to her flat, just keep that in mind with your luggage. The bathroom was the worst part of the flat... it's a shallow tub with no shower curtain... I had to sit in the tub to bath and I was stressed about the water coming out of the tub when rinsing off and I'm 5 ft. So if you're taller then me which most are, you'll have a problem taking a shower. Another issue was her wifi... it only worked in the living room, in the bedroom the wifi reception was bad or no reception at all.
The only thing I liked about the flat was the location.
The flat is very messy or should I say cluttered? It didn't give me a warm welcome feeling, like other flats I rented in Europe.
Lisa in person is really nice and took a few mins of her time when I arrived to show me on the map where the flat was located.
I wouldn't return.
Lisa and Zoe were amazing hosts, and made us feel so welcome in their home. The apartment is BEAUTIFUL - perfect location and everything you need is there. Thanks for all the cups of tea Lisa!
Her apartment is located very close to the tube, which was really nice and convenient. The bed we stayed in was very, very comfortable. My sister and I slept very well here. Breakfast is not made for you, but is provided. Lisa is very nice, and gives you a lot of freedom. We would definitely stay with Lisa again.
The flat is in a great location, a very short walk from Paddington Station. An excellent choice if, like me, you've just flown 10 hours into Heathrow and just want to get settled.
Lisa was very kind, friendly, and helpful. I would definitely stay with her again.
The host canceled my reservation 50 days before arrival.
The host canceled my reservation 9 days before arrival.
Having Lisa here was great! Everything went splendid. She was really likable and calm and the communication between us prior to her arrival was good.
