We had a great stay with Margaret. Her home is in an absolutely fantastic location. Despite our train arriving late, letting us in and getting us settled was no problem. Breakfast was great! Thank you very much. We will definitely be back.

Hope the journey back was not too onerous and you got to see something of the Chrismas market.

What an amazing place we found, central location ,wonderful host and and a filling hearty breakfast It felt home from home and nothing was too much trouble for our host. The bedroom was spacious with comfortable beds. I would definitely recommend staying here as it is 10 mins walk from train station and it is central to bars and restaurants

My husband and I stayed for the weekend with Margaret for part of our honeymoon and it was a great experience. This was our first time having shared a place on Airbnb and we could not have picked a better one. The flat is so beautiful, it almost takes you back in time. Everything was very clean and organized. Margaret even had a little breakfast and tea for us the next morning! The location of the flat is very convenient and easy to find. We traveled by train and it was about a 5-10 walk. There are a lot of great restaurants close by. We particularly liked the Olive Branch. I highly recommend staying here.

Margaret is a great host! Her apartment is definitely one of the kind, classic and elegant, and it's very well located in the city centre. She prepared very nice breakfast, I even got amazing green tea! She had very interesting conversation, and very helpful in local tips. Staying in her place is definitely a highlight of the visit. A solid 5 star, thank you again for everything:)
