I'm offering a single bedroom and a double sofa bed in a recently renovated three bedroom house located in a very quiet neighborhood of houses with gardens (Heaton). The house is close to three scenic parks, if you would like to enjoy a walk into nature :)
The house is close to the city centre, it will take just 8 minutes by metro (Chillingham road metro station), or 5 minutes by taxi. A metro ticket costs just 1.60£ (2.30£ day saver ticket) and a bus ticket is about 1.80 £ (3.50£ day saver ticket), a taxi ride is maximum 6£.
The house includes spacious common areas: lounge/ living room, kitchen with fitted units and large refrigerator, toaster, and other kitchen appliances. Your room is an upstairs and sunny private bedroom with a single and comfortable bed facing the garden. If you are a couple, we can make an arrangement of providing a comfortable sofa bed with a maximum privacy as possible along with enjoying a very nice fireplace!
You have access to a toilet and shower room close by. Clean towels can be supplied every day. You also have access to the kitchen for making tea or coffee and biscuits, which are for free!!
Within a 100 meter radius, we have plenty of supermarkets, shops, coffees, and lots of take aways.
Newcastle is packed with things to do, like nightlife, theatre, shopping, attractions, museums, etc. A short bus ride (15-20 min) will take you to the coast, and we are also located not too far from Northumberland with its spectacular scenery, parks and walking. There are also a number of historical attractions nearby Newcastle: Durham is 15 min by train and the beamish village is 25 min with bus if you would like to enjoy a trip into history without giving up the advantages of a bigger city !!
We have free Wi-Fi and on street parking. Smoking is allowed in the garden area only.
This is a sociable and multicultural house, and you are free to come and go as you like.
I look forward to greeting you and I'm happy to answer any questions you may have!
Cheap and clean room was on the sign, so no surprise inside that typical flat. Raffaele and Selma were really friendly. Our stay looked more like friends home holidays than a commercial connection. Thank you again for your welcome and help.
The reservation was canceled 2 days before arrival. This is an automated posting.
Staying at Raffaele's was cool. Great room and house in a quiet area with easy access to the city centre and other parts of Newcastle. Plus, Raffaele was very helpful offering lots of great advice on the city, being my first time around and all in all I'd definitely like to stay again whenever I have to.
Slept 3 nights @ Raffaele's place. Very friendly and nice guy, he just bought a new bed, which was very comfortable and warm :) The place looked clean. The only thing the room needs are some curtains, it's a bit too bright in the room at night because of the street lights.
Had a very pleasant stay. Thank you!
Raffaele was very kind with me and my parents. He was very available with us. The house is clean and very comfortable. It has been a pleasure to be in Raffaele's house even if just for one day.
What a great couple to know. Both of the host are intelligent, social and made me feel like I was living with family. Great couple. Very accommodating and only had to say if I needed any thing. They are new at this but very considerate. Will definitely choose them again.
Raffaele and his wife were very friendly and accommodating, sent me information on how to reach their home by bus and metro and did not mind that I arrived quiet late the first night. They also let me use their kitchen to cook some breakfast which was very valuable to me as I was on a special diet. The room was clean and very quiet. Heaton, the area in Newcastle where the house is, is peasant, quiet and in easy reach of the city centre by bus.
Rafaelle was a lovely host. He made us feel comfortable and welcome straight away. The home was clean, tidy, warm and comfortable. Only sorry to you Rafaelle if we were noisy in the morning (that's why I took the children out very early)!! Thank you so much and have family in Newcastle so will hopefully stay again :)
Staying with Raffaele was great! He is very accommodating, friendly and makes beautiful coffee Italian style!
It would be an honour to share his home again and chat with Raffaele and Selma, who are interesting and fun people.
I really enjoyed the short stay at Raffaele's flat. I felt very warm welcome and he gave me beforehand all information I needed to explore Newcastle on my own. His descirption how to get the bus frm teh railway station was accurate, he always answered my questions very quicly and he is a very nice, openminded guy! So, I can surely recommend his flat when you come to Newcastle. Marie
