I've been to Sandra for 3 weeks, the house is clean and tidy, you have the opportunity to cook and free access to the entire house ... the room is very comfortable and Sandra is a very private person, but does not hold back if you want to talk about a bit ... about the area, there is a small supermarket 2 minutes walk away and a supermarket to 10 minute walk (or 3 minutes by bus) ... the metro is just 5 minutes by bus and it's also overground ...
If I was to return to London would definitely go back to Sandra.
Sono stato da Sandra per 3 settimane, la casa è pulita e ordinata, si ha la possibilità di cucinare e libero accesso a tutta la casa… la camera è molto confortevole e Sandra è una persona riservata, ma non si tira indietro se volete parlare un po… riguardo la zona, c’è un piccolo market a 2 minuti a piedi e un grande market a 10 minuti a piedi (o 3 minuti col bus)… la metro è a solo 5 minuti di autobus ed è anche overground…
Se dovessi ritornare a Londra ritornerei sicuramente da Sandra.
Sandra is just perfect, everything is very good, the room is big and clean, the transport is very good. Sandra is just great person, and I probably book again with her. Français: Sandra est incroyable, tout est parfait, elle est très agréable, vous pouvez parler avec elle, le bus est à 2 minute, et la station de train à 5 - 7minute. Je vous la conseille vivement, je reviendrai sûrement chez elle !
I am writing this review because I really feel that I have to do it. The reason is that Sandra has been very nice with me since I contacted her. When things are good it is great to recommend them.
The room is big, very clean and with a tv. The bed is perfectly ok. comfortable and double size. The rest of the house is good as well. I have spent the most of the time in my room but Sandra allowed me to be in the sitting room and cook and she recommend me to spend some in the garden that she has in the back, and it is beautiful.
She is very respectful and gave me my space but she always was open to talk with and very patient as my English was not very good.
The first day I asked her for an iron and she bought a new one that day!
To be honest the only thing I would improve in the house if I were Sandra would be the internet connexion because the speed was not very fast. Anyway she told me that she was waiting for response from the provider because she was called it.
The fridge is good, she gave me my own department. The washing machine was the same, very good.
So in general, 8/10. The neighbourhood very safe, supermarkets in less than 3 minutes, public transport very good, I came here by bus and I have been using the overground every day for going to my office.
For Spaniards: Muy recomendable. La casera es muy amable y respetuosa. La casa está muy bien y me he marchado simplemente porque he encontrado algo para más tiempo.
