Maria was a really lovely host to us, from accommodating our very late checkin, to giving us tips and information about where to go to explore the city, and how to get around. The room is quite comfortable for a couple; the common space is very large and it includes a work/study area, living room, and a large separate kitchen, which had pretty much everything needed to cook the most elaborate meal. Access to laundry and dryer was a big plus given that we stayed for a long time. Maria was super kind and let us enjoy the wonderful backyard and patio, including the vegetables she grows there. We had great fun playing with her adorable dog Luna, and discussing interesting topics with Maria and her roommates over dinner and wine on more than one occasion.
The neighbourhood is residential, clean and quiet, within a 5min walk to the metro, which we took full advantage of, and a 20min walk to campus. I am really happy we got to stay at Maria's house and would love to stay there on my next visit as well. Thank you Maria for everything!
