What our Guests say

For over 30 years we have accommodated thousands of medical, academic, professional and business visitors to London.
Here are a few comments on what they think of us and our accommodation.

John O’Brien, Historian in Medicine and Archivist

I wanted to be near London Bridge station and your booking team found me excellent accommodation at Canary Wharf. It was very reassuring to be welcomed in an immaculate home by the host, almost as a member of the family. Much more impressive than being an anonymous guest in a hotel.
My room was impressive with outstanding views of the River Thames and included all the facilities one would wish to find in a hotel.  Moreover, my host was able to answer miscellaneous queries during my stay. My plentiful breakfast maintained this quality too, and I left refreshed, a few stops away on the London tube. I thoroughly recommend this wonderful service, you won’t be disappointed. Thank you Cityhomestay.


I like to thank you for my nice stay at your place. I hope you found the keys which I left in the envelop you gave me and that I left the room as you would have like it. Did you find the little bottle of wine I left on the table for you?

Many thanks again for my nice stay at your place… I especially liked the walking through and along by the Cemetery… a very special place in an overwhelmingly active city…

All the best, Emmanuel

The team were really helpful on the phone and booking a room seemed easy using on-line payments via the website.  We have used their service on a number of occasions and wouldn’t hesitate to use them again. Excellent value and so much better than unwelcoming hotels.

I wanted to thank you for offering me the option to rent the studio flat  in Fulham. They are the most delightful couple, and they have been perfect landlords, looking after me with kindness and non-intrusively. The flat was clean, well-maintained, and completely independent from the rest of the household. It was cleaned 2 times/week, kept warm, and was fully furnished for living in comfort. The price was remarkably competitive for such a splendid area as Fulham. I enjoyed every minute I spent there. I was wondering whether you could publish this testimonial on your website.

I meant to mail you before and say thanks very much for organising my stay with your Host. It was a great location, spotlessly clean, and she was very charming and I would happily stay there again.

Michael Williams, Belfast

I’d like to provide some belated feedback on staying at your Host, as above, recently. It was brilliant! The house and room were clean and tidy, and had all the amenities I’d need. My Host was friendly and helpful – I can imagine her being a godsend to anyone who didn’t know the UK. Breakfast was excellent! – I chose cereal, but a food to make a cooked breakfast was there too. I didn’t quite know what restrictions to expect, if any, staying after all in someone’s house, but in fact my Host gave me complete freedom; she was entirely unobtrusive. I found its location perfect: in a quiet mews, but with nearby pubs, and within easy walking distance of Islington buzz.
I’d definitely recommend staying at her house to anyone else, particularly those from overseas.

Thank you she was very understanding, and has been of great help to us the past few weeks. The flat has all the basics, is very cozy and is well-located: a great place to start out when one is new in London. We would therefore like to full-heartedly recommend the flat and its owner to future tenants.
