It is a lovely place and even more lovely hosts! Samia and her husband keep the place in outstanding conditions and we turned good friends after the week I spend with them. I strongly recommend to stay with them in Cambridge!
Samia and Bashir are excellent hosts. They are very kind and welcoming people.
The kitchen is an great place to relax, have a cup of tea, and talk with the hosts. The small bedroom is cozy. The bathroom is clean and surprisingly big. Overall, the house is quite nice to stay in.
Samia and Bashir are really lovely, nice people, welcoming and easy going. The house is beautiful. I spent a lot of time in the kitchen which is very nice. Samia cooks fantastic food too :) The room is a bit small, but the description was accurate and it was what I needed. I think if you don't have 3 large suitcases like I did, the room wouldn't feel as small. The house is incredibly clean. It feels great. You will want to keep it this way. Shared bathroom is modern nice and spacious and clean. Location is great, very safe, close to the train station. Overall great experience - I am moving to Cambridge for a year so I will pass by Samia for a tea for sure! :)
J'ai été très bien reçu chez Samia, leur maison est très jolie et super propre !
An absolutely positive Airbnb experience: Samia and Bashir are lovely welcoming hosts and their home is a very nice, friendly and calm place to stay.
My room was tidy and quiet and the bed had really one of the most comfortable mattresses I have ever slept on. The bathroom is spacious and super clean.
The walking distance to the station and the city centre is a bit longer than indicated (15 min to the station, about 30 min to the city centre), but it's a nice walk through a calm neighbourhood.
For me, everything was perfect. I would definitely recommend Samia and Bashir's place and thank them for sharing it :)
Experience was purely positive. Place was as described and everything in good order. Were very accommodating and courteous. I do recommend.
Samia and her husband Bashir are probably the friendliest and attentive hosts you will have the pleasure of meeting. They welcomed me with fresh mint tea and a chat.
Their home is VERY clean, cared for and welcoming, the bathroom and kitchen are especially inviting and stylish. My room didnt match up with the photograph on the site. Its was very plain, unloved & basic & mismatched furniture and unfinished paintwork, with no pictures. Samia had however left some freshly cut flowers from the garden on the window ledge. I have left this feedback with them and really trust that this will improve.
The walk to the station is described as a 7 minute walk. I am tall and walk fast, you need to give yourself at least 15 minutes realistically or you may miss your train!
Once these improvements are made I wouldn't hesitate in recommending this home.

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.
