I had an excellent stay with Meli. The location is very nice, right beside a park that is pretty safe at night and very chill during the day. I walked back at 2 am on weeknights and did not have any problems.
The room is large and comfortable, though I wasn’t able to open the window, so it got a little stuffy. But that may have been my fault. The bathroom was nice, I did not use the living room space much but it seemed like guests could hang out there no problem.
I would love to give this place 5 starts but I have one small complaint. During my week-long stay, there was construction right outside of my window that started each day around 8am, including weekends. It’s something to be aware of if you like to sleep in a little or are visiting for vacation. It woke me up quite a few times, as I’m someone who normally wakes up closer to 9:30/10am when I’m traveling.
I would like to have know about the construction beforehand, especially since Meli sent me a nice pre-arrival message asking if I was ok with the fact that the entrance has a steep staircase and that she has a dog and cat.
Overall, though, nice place and very true to the pictures and descriptions.
