Great flat in a cool neighborhood. Not too far from public transportation into London center. Eleanor kept in touch and checked up on me the entire stay. She was out of town but made sure that her friend was available to check me in. Would stay again.

This airbnb is an excellent find! The hostess is ever so lovely and I couldn't ask for for to any more helpful whilst the house is very cosy in a lovely little area just 15 minutes train from London Bridge. Overall this airbnb is perfect if you are wanting to experience the true British culture. Highly recommend this place

Eleanor's been fantastic. Love the room, and the house is beautiful. Good neighborhood - we felt safe, and transport is convenient. Just 2 stops away from Victoria train station. :) Really enjoyed our stay.

Eleanor has a lovely flat in a nice and quiet residential area. I initially booked for a week but ended up staying 2 days longer. With grocery stores around the corner, nice parks and Lewisham shopping centre within walking distance and excellent transport links to the City, this is a perfect place to stay when visiting London!

I have already reviewed this experience - I stayed for 4 nights at Eleanor's flat initially and came back for two more. Eleanor was a great host!

Very welcome. Lovely relaxed atmosphere. Very clean. Coming from Australia, I had forgotten how small bedrooms are in the UK - next time, I will bring only one small suitcase! And there will be a next time when I come to visit my daughter - if, of course, Eleanor accepts me.

Response from Eleanor:
You would be very welcome Rosa! Good point about room size and London - space is indeed at a premium - my friends think my rooms are spacious! In the room advertised on airbnb there is a empty wardrobe for you to keep things in - but as you stayed in my room unfortunately the wardrobe was full of my things! I will have a creative think about this issue if you have many bags - good feedback :)

I run a wonderful charity called GlobalGiving UK - helping people thrive all over the world. I have been living in London for the last 4 years. Before that I was lucky enough to live in Kenya for 5 years running another charity working with inspiring young people seeking to change their futures.

I enjoy good conversation, seeing new places, learning new things and having fun. I work hard and enjoy life.
