Interaction with guests

We like to share at least a little conversation with our guests so we hope you like sharing, but if you don't no worries, we are not gonna push you :)

On the other hand, even if the place is very quiet (Usually you can cook alone), you can meet a lot of people since the other rooms and the next flat ones are also on Airbnb, and 80% of guests stay longer than 1 month (Some of them 6 months, etc), so there is a great atmosphere in the building, we use an online group to keep in touch and sometimes we organize activities but of course you are free to join them or not, and as you can see in the reviews, the place is quiet if you want to study or sleep.

Other things to note

- If you want to book only 1 or 2 nights with more than 10 days in advanced probably we will decline your reservation because they block our calendar. We only accept short stays to fill gaps in our calendar or for the same week. Sorry for the inconvenience.
- We have 1 cat named Marvel.
- There is a quiet time from 11pm-11am for the benefit of all guests.
- There are other permanent tenants living in the flat from different countries but also other travelers.
. We collaborate with a Charity that promote higher education in developing countries. Manu is the president of that organisation

Manuel's place is an old flat, which need a bit of freshness. However it's okay for the price you pay.

We have been warmly welcomed by Manu. We were three girls and the room was confortable for us! The bathroom and toilet and the kitchen were also clean. It's a very good deal for such a price and it's really not far fron town wether by feet or by bus! Just make sure to let Manu know if you'd like a quiet room as ours led to the main road so we can unfortunately hear the circulation all night. But I personally think it's a small price to have such big and confortable room! Thanks for having us again! :)

Sadly this stay never took place. Manu had accidentally double booked the apartment so I was forced to stay elsewhere. He only discovered the mistake 12hrs before I was due to arrive. However, Manu was extremely apologetic and helpful, so far as he could be, in resolving the problem. He offered me another stay, which didn't work, and refunded all my costs with an additional tip for compensation. I would much prefer to have stayed, but given the circumstances Manu was honest and fair. I cannot comment on the state of the apartment etc, hence the 'average' star ratings.

The place has just been renovated (October 2015), based on comments and advise left by previous guests but if you still have any specific issue you would like to highlight, please be kind enough to let me know this when you are here in person as direct feedback is also welcomed. Thanks

Floors have been re-carpeted, all walls have been re-painted, new front door, new locks, new flat screen TVs, brand new fridges, dryers, ceramic hobs, etc. Please note as the property itself is quite aged it cannot be modernized as most people understand without making major structural changes.

I am a Chemistry and Spanish Teacher from Spain living in the UK since 2012 and I like meeting people from all over the world. I am also the president of a Charity in charged of support pour students to gain access to the University in developing countries.

We know it's not always easy but we like when there's opportunity to share some time with guests, going out, etc, and since there are 7 rooms, and in most of them 2-3 months guests, usually there is always somebody in the living room to talk with. We appreciate guests who don't stay 90% of their free time inside the room and they contribute to the community spirit

We have an online group where we keep in touch and we organize activities like dinners, etc

There's a great South East Indian/Sri Lankan restaurant (Spice Town, previously Chennai Dosa) close to my house where we like having dinner with our guests when it's possible.

Less than 1 minute walking you can find the 2 towers which inspired JRR Tolkien to write The Lord of the Rings (One of them is visible from the bedrooms) and 2 mins walking from The Oratory where he used to participate and 1 minute from The Plough and Harrow hotel where he stayed as well.

The property is located 5-6mins walking distance to the Botanical Gardens and 7-8mins walk to the Edgbaston Reservoir
