Melina (and Roque) w're very responsive to emails and flexible when it came to setting up a check in time. The room is small, but certainly large enough for one person. The apartment is very close to downtown Richmond, and an easy walk to the train station.
Host's son met me at the Underground station and walked me to the house. The house was super convenient for me - right in central Richmond. It was an easy walk to shops, bus station, river walk and train station. The neighborhood is lovely and I never felt unsafe, even coming back after midnight. Highly recommended.
Lovely and practical location. Warm welcome to a comfortable single room.
Neighborhood was great. Room was clean, transaction was smooth. Would stay again.
The fact that the location wasn't exactly as shown on the map was a real bonus - because it's right in the middle of Richmond and a really fabulous position. The flip side to this is that parking is tricky at the wrong time of day. Very comfortable stay. If I'm looking for a place to stay in Richmond again then I'd certainly try to stay at Melina's.
The location was great for our purposes - close to the Richmond overland railway and underground station, main shopping streets and river Thames attractions. We appreciated having an en suite bathroom. Melina's son was our host while Melina was on holiday. He was very relaxed about us using the kitchen and laundry.
Host greeted me and gave me the key at the pre-arranged time and showed me the room and facilities. Nice little house perfectly located in central Richmond. The bedroom was exactly as in the photo, bed was comfortable. Happy to use again.
Staying at Melina's was a dream! The location was perfect and the house beautiful - I had it almost to myself :) All I kept thinking was how I wanted to live there! Excellent communication and I felt very welcome. My own teapot was a bonus!
Melina was completely welcoming with me, making me feel very confortable at her house. She gave me precious tips about the neighborhood and how to enjoy the best of it. The house in general and the room are very cozy. I fell in love with the neighborhood, completely gourgeous, very near the Thames river and the Richmonds Park: in that region, the day time as the night live are amazing. It is also very near the Richmonds train station, what really helped me to get there. I went out there with the desire of return soon.
Unfortunately not a very good experience for me. Melina was welcoming but then didn't see her again after my arrival and so was unable to address the issues with her. The room was messy, very hot and with a very busy, noisy road outside. The pillows were stained and the bedding and towels had seen many better days. There was no real shower and the powered milk was 'off'. I only stayed one of the two nights I booked.
Melina was a perfect guest, nothing to say about her except that she is very friendly and smiling and she gave me back my flat in a perfect Condition. I recommend her as a guest with no doubt.
Melina a sejourné plusieurs jours dans mon appartement et tout s'est tres bien passé. Je la recommande car elle a pris soin de mon appartement comme si c'etait le sien et qu'elle est par ailleurs tres sympathique et souriante.
We have known Melina for many years. Her home is beautiful-very comfortable and newly remodeled. It is also a convenient location-close to the train station for a short ride to Central London. Richmond is a great location and Melina's bubbly, happy personality is a treat! A fantastic spot for a home away from home while on vacation.
Melina truly loves detail & she can tell you about the best corners in Richmond. Paradise Rd is right at the middle of it all, uncomplicated and nice.
Fantastic house, Fantastic location. Fantastic host.
The best place to stay at Richmond. The flat is located just a few minutes walking from Richmond Station and pubs, clubs, restaurants and shops are close as well. Melina is fantastic, such a cheerful person. The room is totally clean, the hospitality couldn't be better. Definitely, next time visiting London I'm staying at Melina's!
