I just want to say thanks Michelle who is such a wonderful woman. She prepare everything for us . The room is very tidy and save . I strangely recommend this flat to all of you who want to be save and peaceful . 这是个特别棒的主人，房子很干净也很方便，强烈推荐！
Good value for money, and Michelle was very helpful. The neighborhood is nice and bright and we had a good time. We enjoyed our stay.
I stayed one night after a long day at work. Amazing location. Michelle was very lovely and let me leave my cycle there which was great. However as i explained to her the following day, the fellow house guests kept me awake till gone 2am with three requests to be quiet, then soneone came in at 3am. As a business travellor it was far from ideal and bext time i'll go to a hotel. The singing laughing girls & banging next door was too much to put up with. Obviously this depends on the guests staying but maybe house rules and house requests of guests wasnt made clear. It felt like i'd pulled the short straw. Wish id stayed at former airbnb location, slightly further out but for the same price was twice as comfortable for my needs.
Sorry to say, but in honesty, my worst Air BnB experience so far. if youre a young studebt/person looking for somewhere to crash then fine but for me, really needing sleep for a big day the following day and after a long day of work it was grim without sleep. I asked for quiet three times and didnt want to wake the landlady / call her etc. not for me. I thought it was one guest room so next time i'll look for quiet places with only one room so its not leaving it to chance. My fault i should have checked out the reviews, other rooms being offered etc.
Hi Diane, I am disappointed to hear that your stay was not good as I always want guests to feel comfortable in my home. I do say in the listing that there may be other guests in the house and in over 5 years of hosting this is the first time anyone has been disturbed. I would happily have dealt with it if I had been informed. I also state in the listing which breakfast items are provided. The widow isn't broke, there is a button to press to close it, which is clearly demonstrated in the house manual left on display in the room.
i had a very good experience staying at michelle's place. the flat and especially the room is nice and tidy and we got everything ready when we enter the flat.
the flat is also located strategically and nicely at Little Venice which is lovely for me because it's a beautiful, not really bustling like in central London but central enough that you can reach city centre in only 15 minutes and heathrow in only 25-60 minutes (depends on the train you take)
Michelle wasn't there during my stay but she got everything provided and ready for me (thanks also to her friend Rosanna) and i also got my queries responded quickly during my stay.
very recommended place to stay!
Michelle is very friendly and helpful and easy to communicate. The location of the house is near to bus stop or sunway only needs 2mins' walk, to the shopping street only 10-15min by bus. Easy to find resturant nearby. Wifi is OK. It is recommended to choose to stay here if short vacation in London.
Michelle's home is located very close to the undergrad. With clear explanation provided, we found her flat easily. The room for us was clean, comfortable and quiet. We had a very good sleep after a long exhausted day trip.

About the Host, Michelle
We are a family with older teen children, and love to welcome visitors to our home and city. I am happy to help you with transport information and taxi bookings, being close to Paddington Station means we are very conveniently located for Heathrow airport.
As I work from home I can be quite flexible with check in/out and on hand should you have any problems.
Little Venice is one of the safest and prettiest areas of London and the perfect location for families and groups who wish to visit.
My aim is to offer a convenient and clean base from which you can get to know the insider London.
I constantly strive to provide the very best accommodation to my guests and if you have any suggestions on what would make the stay better for you, I'd love to hear them.
