Reviews of this property
Friendly welcome, great tips for the use of public transport, clean and well furnished rooms, adequate breakfast that leaves no wishes unfulfilled. This spent very nice days in London. Can the hotel recommend again and will certainly go again there.

Dadurch sehr schöne Tage in London verlebt. Kann die Unterkunft immer wieder empfehlen und werden sicherlich nochmals dorthin fahren.
We had a great stay in London. The rooms are very large, clean and tastefully decorated. The house is situated in a quiet residential street. The hostess Susanne is very nice, friendly and helpful with great tips for staying. The breakfast offered is recommended. We would definitely come back.

Die Gastgeberin Susanne ist sehr nett, freundlich und hilfsbereit mit guten Tips für den Aufenthalt. Das angebotene Frühstück ist empfehlenswert. Wir kommen gerne wieder.
we have a pleasant stay at Susanne.

Hôte très charmante et avenante.
Les chambres sont exactement comme elles sont décrites.
la situation géographique permet un déplacement très facile 20 min de la gare de victoria en métro .
Merci a Suzanne de nous avoir reçu ce qui a permis aux enfants de découvrir Londres.
Two cute, cozy room with a very nice and friendly hostess.
Zwei nette, gemütliche Zimmer bei einer sehr netten und freundlichen Gastgeberin.
Very nice rooms with a good bathroom. Pleasant neighbourhood. We bought our own breakfast, but missed the kitchen a bit (there is a possibility to make hotwater and toast).
Sussy is a very kind lady and the place is good, clean and well conected to public transportation...around 45 min to Victoria or Westminster. Ideal place for those who look for a guest house, very quiet neighborhood... for those who dont like cats, I barely notice their presence, seemed to me very well educated animals. The breakfast is exelent.
I would defenetively back to Sussy's place.
We had booked two rooms at Susanne and it has everything worked out great. The rooms are very nice gestalltet and have everything you need for a short trip. The bathroom is a bit small but has everything you need, just missing a holder for the shower head that makes showering a bit cumbersome. Who lives in Susanne and the Metro useful as a means of transportation, you need a card that is valid for Zone 3. For tätgliche London City trips you need about 45 minutes until you are in the center, thus you spend a lot of time on the train and the bus. On the whole, I can recommend the room by Susanne highly enough and we felt very comfortable with her.
Wir hatten zwei Zimmer bei Susanne gebucht und es hat alles super geklappt. Die Zimmer sind sehr schön gestalltet und bieten alles was man für einen Kurztrip braucht. Das Bad ist etwas klein hat aber alles was man braucht, lediglich eine Halterung für die Duschbrause fehlt, dass macht das Duschen ein bisschen umständlich. Wer bei Susanne wohnt und die U-Bahn als Fortbewegungsmittel nütz, braucht eine Karte die für Zone 3 gültig ist. Für tätgliche London City trips braucht man ca. 45 min bis man im Zentrum ist, dadurch verbringt man recht viel Zeit in der Bahn und im Bus. Im großen und ganzen kann ich die Zimmer von Susanne nur wärmstens empfehlen und wir haben uns bei ihr sehr wohl gefühlt.
We've had it really to our liking with Suzi. We had two rooms booked and that was fine for 2 adults and 3 kids. There is a table where you can have breakfast and eg fridge, kettle etc provided.
Suzi had great tips for us and is a nice charming lady. (Very approachable). Tis a 5 minute walk to the bus (line 319) that you drop on Sloan Square. Metro (Tooting Bec) is a 15 minute walk away and takes you in 20 minutes to city center vd.
Cars can park for free in the street. We would definitely return here again on a return visit. Highly recommended!
We hebben t erg naar onze zin gehad bij Suzi. We hadden beide kamers geboekt en dat was prima voor 2 volw en 3 kids. Er is een tafeltje waar je kan ontbijten en bv koelkast, waterkoker etc aanwezig.
Suzi had leuke tips voor ons en is een aardige charmante dame. (zeer benaderbaar). Tis 5 minuten lopen naar de bus (lijn 319) die je dropt op Sloan Square. Metro (Tooting Bec) is 15 minuten lopen en brengt je in 20 minuten naar centrum vd stad.
Auto kan je gratis parkeren in de straat. We zouden hier zeker weer terugkeren bij een volgend bezoek. Een aanrader!
We had a wonderful stay. Susanne the Host was very helpful and accommodating, we were meet in the evening even though we arrived much later than expected due to traffic but Susanne was understanding. She was very warm and showed us round the beautifully decorated apartment and our cosy room. It had everything we needed - a television, and fridge, kettle and towels. The flat is in an excellent position, 5- 10 minute walk from the station and buses. Her cats are very clean and friendly and I didn't have have any issues with noise from the outside. Thank you for a lovely stay Susanne.
