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 give our guests full details about the area and how to get around .
The flat is located in a well-established and popular neighbourhood of London called Paddington.
My daughter and I are interested in meeting new people and learning more about different cultures. We like walking, reading, cinema, swimming & theatre.

Melek is a really wonderful person. She is very nice to deal with her. She is always smiling. She made me passionate to the travel experience. If I decide to go back to Britain, I will definitely go there. I advise everyone to go there without hesitation
Tracy and her family are so nice, and they will help you in any way they can. I loved my time with them.
This home is perfect as a cozy base to explore the city of London.
You arrive in a nicely furnished, clean apartment, including kitchen use, and sleep in a comfortable bed in a quiet but central area.
