ROOM FOR TEA IS a new kind of homesharing network

We connect guests in need of short-term, affordable accommodation in London with hosts who have a spare room in their homes.

Create a profile and let us get to know you a little better.

We like to ensure that you can find out as much as you need about others hosts or guests from their profiles. Profiles provide insightful information about a host/guest to help you find the perfect match.


Find a match

Guests and Hosts can browse through interesting profiles to find the perfect match and make contact.

As we say, we’re all about sociable housing. This means finding the perfect host or guest. Not only will you share a home, but also your interests and experiences - maybe learn a new skill along the way.


Contact is made

Here you can arrange to meet each other and see if your characters match. We leave this up to you but you can choose to meet in person, through Skype or even speak on the phone. We do recommend meeting in person to visit the room and talk through housing arrangements.

Once you've made up your mind please let Room for Tea know immediately. We will handle payments by sending guests an invoice.


Start home-sharing!

We're called Room for Tea for a reason, so put the kettle on. All set? Do a tour of the house and go over the essentials.

Once your stay is over we will be in touch shortly to ask for a review of your Guest or Host. We value your feedback immensely and look forward to any suggestions you may have for improving our service.
