I was staying at Paley's house for 2 weeks in the beginning of October 2017. Despite a cold weather outside, it was very warm inside the room. The neighborhood is very cozy and safe. I was on a business trip and there was a fantastic connection to Canary Wharfs from here.
Paley was a great host, very responsive. I didn't have a chance to meet her in person, but she was always very fast in replying on my messages. I was flying on Ryanair and there was a 1+ hour delay with the baggage, as a result I missed a connection coach and arrived later than planned. Paley asked her friend to meet me and show everything around despite a very late hour, which I really appreciated.
The listing shows a swimming pool, gym, hot tube etc., which are located not in the house but somewhere nearby. I didn't have time to use those, so not sure how accessible they are.
About the room. When I was booking (and now when I write this review) there were no photos of the room. I had a bit different expectations because of that. The room is basic, but very spacious and has a big balcony. There was a small extendable sofa to sleep on. The listing says it's for 2 people, but I would say that it's only for 1 person. Many plugs, but none next to the sofa, so I would advise taking the extension. There was a drawer, but no wardrobe and hangers, so I wasn't able to hang my clothes. What is very good, there were an iron and a board for ironing clothes downstairs, so it helped. There are a chair and a small table, and a kitchen style sink in the room. The room was on the 3rd (last) floor, next to a private bathroom. I liked that there were no other rooms on that I had my privacy.
The bathroom is very small, has a shower. It's different from the one on the photo. At those weeks I was there, a door to the shower was missing (replaced temporarily with a curtain) and a sink had some issues. But those can be fixed soon. There was more than enough shampoo for guests.
Unfortunately, while I was there, there was an issue with the internet, so most of the days it was working only for a few minutes. But I know that Paley was working on fixing it and it should have been fixed by now.
Overal I would say that the room is rather basic. Maybe not quite suitable for business travelers, but would be good for normal tourists looking to enjoy London but don't wanna overpay for the lodging. I had a bit other expectations, cause photos were showing a neighbor building rather than the actual listing. At the same time, I would still recommend this place, as Paley is a good host and all those small things can be easily fixed.
