She and her daughter are really nice! Also they are really considerable and lovely. If you are hesitated, you are a fool. You should decide to stay right now!
Staying with Melek was great in all respects. First of all, she's a marvellous host who helps you with anything you can imagine. She is a very nice and relaxed person. We had very nice conversations. The house and room is very clean also. The kitchen was freely in use and you could use the washing machine. Once Melek even ironed my shirt - it was indeed a perfect stay.
The area is nice too, around Little Venice. It's not a long way to the underground. I will definitely stay with Melek, if possible, the next time I come to London!
Thank you Melek!
She is a great host!
Hi everyone, I'm Perrine, 22years old and I've stayed 2months in Melek's family.
If you ever want to go to London and have no idea where to stay... Just go to Melek and Deniz house. It was one of the best experience of my life in a family.
First of all they welcomed me really nicely and properly. We didn't know each other, obviously but they were very polite and very open-minded. It was the very first time I booked a family on the internet! I was a bit nervous...
The appartement was very clean all the time. My bedsheets were changed every week and I could do my laundry as much as I wanted to. I had a place in the fridge where I could put my groceries and I could use the kitchen whenever I wanted.
They really introduce me in their world with their friends, acquaintances and their culture. I've been learning more than ever with these two and we had so much fun some nights laughing in the living room! I almost learn a few words of Turkish! Deniz, Melek's daughter, had the same age as me so we got along very well.
To conclude Melek and Deniz are very warm, big hearted and they have so much to offer to you. I'm so sad it is already gone but now I have another family in London and there is no way I'm going back to an hotel because now I have a place to stay <3
I went to London with my friend Mary, we are French and we are 22 years old.
We had a very nice trip in London especially thanks to Melek and her daughter. When we arrived, we felt like at home. They were very very welcoming. The house is very clean, the bedroom and bathroom too. Concerning the breakfast it was very tasty : you can chose what you want (cereals, bread, tea, eggs, coffee or anything else). We ll come back again at Melek's house ! And we became friends with her daughter, Deniz.
Melek helped us, and advised us for bus and tube. She was very nice and kindly ! They were always here for us ! Thanks for all again, I hope we ll see you soon !
My daughter and I enjoyed staying at Melek's place. Melek and her daughter are very welcoming people giving useful advice about their city. The room was clean and very nice. The location is perfect to visit London, next to Bakerloo and Circle line stations. Definitely a place to stay
Great location, very friendly and helpful hosts :) thank you!
Very nice and friendly people, very clean flat, and an excellent location. I really enjoyed my stay and I felt comfortable. Melek and her daughter were very friendly and helpful, and they would never hesitate to help you if you ask them. There are lots of places that are a walking distance from the flat, and if that is not the case, you can either use the tube which is very close, or by taking the bus at the bus stop instead, which is very close as well. I would definitely recommend this place to anyone.
