Lovely accommodation and very thoughtful hosts. Maybe we were lucky, but it was very quiet for such a central location. A great base for spending a few days taking in all that London has to offer. Would happily book again.

My parents enjoyed their stay at Melanie's and Frederique's place a lot. Here is a personal note from them: "We enjoyed our stay in London very much, especially our beautiful and cozy room with a wonderful bathroom. It was very quiet and we slept like in heaven. Underground and buses are not far away and a supermarket is just at the corner. Our hosts Melanie and Frederique were amazing. If we visit London again, we hope we can stay with them again. Thank you so much!"

We were at Melanie's for 3 nights and absolutely loved it! Everything about our stay was 5 star. Melanie was great to communicate with prior to & thru out our stay. It was a joy to meet/visit with her & Frederique; they were very kind and we believe they truly care about their guests. Suggesting we take their umbrella as we were leaving to walk to dinner. Explaining the Oyster card (a must for the tube) . Printing some mandatory tickets for us... The space is large, well appointed, clean, bright and inviting. The bathroom is amazing! We've stayed in many Airbnb's, usually opting for entire space; this felt like we had the place to ourselves, as it was located right off the front door with all the amenities of a deluxe hotel room + so many added touches. Definitely recommend-you will love it!

I spent my first week in London in another location-- close by, but tricky to get to Tuffnell Park on public transport. I asked if I could drop off my bags early so I wasn't carrying them around with me (I brought way too much stuff). Long story short, (SENSITIVE CONTENTS HIDDEN) Maps gave me the wrong info, and I ended up needing to hail a taxi to take me to their house, and in the process made Fredrique late for work. I cannot begin to tell you how lovely and kind she was to me as I had my meltdown. She took a photo of the taxi (the driver refused to look at the instructions Fredrique provided me) and was incredibly protective. She then allowed me to accompany her down to Covent Garden, and we had a great conversation. I met Melanie later that night, and she is just as lovely and interesting as Fredrique. They are an incredibly cultured and fascinating couple, with a vast knowledge of the arts, among other subjects. Their house is gorgeous, and my room reminded me of a hotel. The bathroom is spa-like, and the bed is extremely comfortable. I slept so well! I also had access to a mini-fridge, tea kettle, utensils and anything else I could have wanted. The day I left, I had a lovely cup of tea with them, and they drove me to a tube station so I wouldn't get soaked in the rain. They gave me detailed directions to Heathrow so my journey would be stress free. One of my only regrets was not getting to spend more time with them, as they're great conversationalists and have a vast knowledge of London and all it has to offer. I highly recommend staying with them. They are super hosts indeed! You will be well looked after, and it's an extraordinary value for the money.
