    I stayed with two friends at Nilhan's. Her place is a great base from which to explore London -- and right down the road there's already tons of stuff to see around Angel. Place is clean and Nilhan takes good care of her guests. Our stay was a bit of a chaotic setup with another guest spontaneously extending their stay but Nilhan was quick to communicate that with us and was super flexible about it, offering to give me her room instead. So not only did I have a garden to sit and have my tea in the morning but also a fluffy room mate in the form of her lovely cat whom I took care of during the stay :D Basically we had the entire house to ourselves with Nilhan always available to call and check in if anything should come up and no need to worry that we might interfere with any daily schedules. I can see that this particular solution might not be for everybody. Nilhan is usually around and ready to chat and help with anything and of course cat sitting is not normally part of the deal ;D I want to stress that it was a unique situation, clearly communicated and for us it worked perfectly.

    The location was great, with easy access to buses and the Underground. My room was clean and very comfortable, especially the bed. Nilhan was welcoming, warm and friendly. She was always happy to offer help and advice when I needed it. I really felt at home with Nilhan!

    I stayed for 2 weeks in the single room at Nilhan's house because I was doing a course at UCL. It was comfortable, clean and equipped as described; bathroom and toilet room are separate and very clean. I could use the kitchen, which is really important to me. The house is very well situated near two bus stops that take you to the main tourist streets/attractions in London. The neighbourhood is quiet and safe. In the main streets of the area, you find everything you could need: supermarkets, pubs, restaurants, takeaway/delivery restaurants, laundrettes, shops, church... Nilhan is very helpful about practical matters, and she was also very friendly to me, because whenever we met and I asked her about aspects of English life she was pleased to answer. He teenage son is polite, friendly and helpful too. I will go back to her house next time I must go to London again.

    positive aspect: the apart is very well located
    negative aspect: Catactrophic hygiene (dust on the floor, dirty cover and dirty carpets)
    State of the rental and in particular of the bathroom very damaged, living room with garbage, kitchen dirty (interior of the microwave oven unacceptable), garden not maintained.
    It is rare to find an apart that does not respect guests.

    Hi There! I am sorry that you ve felt this way on your stay in our house. As I ve mentioned out before to you I was going away during your stay I was not going to be at home but my teenage son will be hosting. Your answer to this offering was yes. I ve also another guest staying with us and she has no complaints what so ever. But I hear you the teenagers can be messy. I just didn’t want to turn you down. As a result I have a bed review and unhappy quest I ve left your room with very clean sheets 4 clean towels very clean bed room with all needs such as iron hair dryer kettle so on. Sitting room is private guests are not allowed anyway no idea why you went in to check the cleanness. The house was safe and almost walking distance to the tourist attractions. I believe and seen the stuation my son did his best for your comfort. Attentive for your needs. Wouldn’t you think?
    We are sorry that wasn’t enough. Take care. Nilhan Erin

    Nilhan is a very kind person. She lives at her home with her son. It was a comfortable stay. She has WiFi, laundry, refrigerator, and kitchen. The only issue was finding her home. She is Ongar house unit 5. It is 1 block away from 3 bus stations which was great because they all lead to major locations and stations such as Piccadilly Circus, London bridge, and so forth.
