The place is pretty clean and the host is very friendly. It is close to the train station as well.

I completely recommend staying with Bash and Samia. I came for work for a week, and the room was perfect. The rooms are airy and light, the atmosphere is very friendly, and most of Cambridge is within easy walking distance.

Bash and Samia are very friendly. Samia does not speak very strong English right now though she speaks French, Arabic, and Berber. Bash however communicates very well and both of them really enjoy meeting new people. Between the two of them, I think they should have your language needs covered.

Bash is a most excellent, friendly host. He is generous and sharing and fun to be with. His house has four bedrooms so you have plenty of privacy, plus a spacious kitchen, spacious shared bath and large backyard. His home is within walking distance of the train station although I suggest taking a taxi there your first time to learn the route. Bashir's house is about a 30-minute walk to the classic Cambridge sites and I really enjoyed that walk every day I stayed here. Cambridge is a walker/biker town and a must-see city of fantasy architecture for anyone visiting the UK. If you're lucky Bash will be making his awesome homemade vegetable soup with savory spices when you're there. Don't be alarmed if you see him crying in the kitchen -- it's just the onions he's chopping!

I needed a place to crash in Cambridge for two nights and Samia's place fitted the bill exactly. It was comfortable, all spotlessly clean and Samia was a very welcoming, accommodating, kind and thoughtful host.

I stayed with Samia and Bashir for about two months. They are very warm and helpful hosts. Rooms, bathroom and kitchen are very comfortable and clean, and everything looks the same as on pictures. Overall, I definitely recommend this hospitable house to anyone.

Samia User ProfileSamia is a superhost.

I am originally from Mediterranean countrie and moved to the UK few years back to be with my husband. I am very easy to get on with, sociable, friendly, caring and honest. I enjoy entertaining and cooking for friends and family, especially dishes like tagines, couscous, sweets etc.. For other interests, I like various outdoor activities like walking, site seeing, swimming etc... I like shopping and travelling too.

My husband Bash is a professional working in the Semiconductors industry. His interest is mainly football (playing & watching), tennis, Reading, walking, cycling, travelling.

Together we love welcoming people from different parts of the world to our home.
We are both spiritual and one thing we value most is to make our guests VERY WELCOME and FEEL AT HOME ALL THE TIME.
