The house is well located, very clean, and Tatiana is very welcomming and nice, I recommand!
Tatiana was AMAZING - She went above and beyond. I was having issues making my bus out because it was Sunday and the buses weren’t running early enough- she got up and called my taxi. Let me also mention I opted for the laundry service. I expected to be able to wash and ( maybe ) dry my clothes in a dryer. I brought my clothes down and Tatiana asked me what temperature I wanted my items at. I chose and went back to my room. I came back down after my series went off to put my things in the dryer only to find that not only had Tatiana put my things in the dryer she also separated out items she thought would be best not put into the dryer and dried them on the radiator. AMAZING ! I woke up for - very early tour to find my items folded on the kitchen table. She is amazing- i would also like to mention that Hers is like barely 2 minutes from a bus that goes directly to city center - a taxi stand and a grocery store. Let me also mention the view ! HIGHLY RECOMMEND !!
Our room and bathroom were very clean, the bed was perfect and we were free to prepare our breakfast. We were lucky that the warm hostess had a day off and prepared it for us. With a busstop around the corner we could get to the city centre quite easily.
Tatiana is a lovely pesonn. Her place is really clean and nice. We felt like home!
Perfect, perfect, perfect. Tatiana is the best host in Belfast. The house is very clean, great breakfast, the supermarket and bottle shop are just around the corner. Cavehill Mountain Country Park is only 15 minutes away, that's walking. Tatiana even loaned me her parker jacket and beanie during my stay. She goes beyond expectations and understands the traveller. I would happily stay at Tatiana's again.
This guest awarded the host 5 hearts but didn’t leave any comments.
Found room for me at the last minute for 1 night - lovely welcome, very friendly. Comfy bed, very important!
It was a really enjoyable moment, Tatiana is a great host. Won't hesitate to come back whenever I go to Belfast again!
Tatiana is a dream host, she has thought of and provides everything her guests could possibly need, her home is warm, relaxed, welcoming and immaculately clean, will happily stay here again when I'm next in Belfast.
Yes, it was a really nice stay for me at Tatiana's place. She was really nice and helpful. I would stay with here again for sure!
