About the Homestay
I am a maths teacher and I live with my 24 years old daughter who finished university and studied Economy and politics . I am offering guests a double room with an extremely comfortable double bed and shared bathroom with the family. In the room there is one double bed, wardrobe and study table and TV. Internet is available 24 hours a day, free of charge. I live very centrally within walking distance of lots of bars and nice restaurants. The apartment is located very close to several underground stations and the nearest bus stop is only a 3-minute walk away.
I provide all my guests with a very warm welcome and make them feel like they are at home. I have hosted many visitors from around the world and provide guests with a very clean and comfortable place to stay.

We had a great time in Melek's house. We felt at home from day 1. She's really nice and helpful. It was nice talking to her. The house is nice and clean and has everything you need. We would definitely go back again. Thanks Melek. All the best!
I had a great time staying with Melek. The location is fantastic, very close to Paddington Central with plenty of cafes and restaurants, and the tube station. Melek is lovely and so helpful. She took me to a tour showing me around, which was so nice. I also liked being able to use the kitchen. Melek keeps the flat very clean. I can definitely recommend staying with her. I would love to come back and stay with her again.
The host cancelled the booking.
That was fantastic place to stop in London. I so enjoyed by staying here. Everything in one foot step. Nice transportation never mind where you are going. Neighbours around with topical British houses. I definitely recommend to stop with Melek.
Addition bonus: sleeping as a baby during a night. Thanks a lot for your hospitality xx
