I've spent 15 days at the Wales House in late February early March 2019. It is a really nice and comfortable place! Kelly and Julie are always there for all your needs and the house is close to the university. Within a walking distance, you can find stores and restaurants. I recommend that if you are going to UM!

This place was one of the reasons i was able to cope with the winter in minn. A house that provided an incredible and enlighted experience. The atmosphere was incredible, especially being sorrounded by researchers, scientists and physicians from all over the world. The uniquiness of this place is the familiarity and dedication the host provides. The rooms are big, warm, clean and extremely comfortable. This is a 10/10 especially if you plan to do clinical rotations or research for a short period of time at umn. Will definitely come back!

We visited Minneapolis to run the Twin Cities Marathon. A highlight of our vacation was our 3 night stay at the Wales House which is a beautiful historic home in a great location. Our hosts Kelly and Julie were very welcoming and made us feel at home immediately. The home has many different charming areas to relax in and has a kitchen and laundry facilities. Parking was available for our car and we made full use of the transit which was within easy waling distance. We enjoyed our visit to the nearby Weisman Art Museum. The Wales House will definitely be our home away from home whenever we visit the Twin Cities.

I stayed for a week while attending a workshop in Minneapolis. This place was in the list of lodging close to University of Minnesota campus where my workshop was. Kelley and his wife manage this place well. It is guest house for researchers and scholars. The house is always very clean and the bathrooms, spotless. I shared the bathroom with other two rooms but it went ok. The breakfast is fruits, coffee and cereal or toast. You can use the kitchen to cook if you want to. People were friendly and polite. Kelley even lent me an umbrella when it rained. They were nice people and I had a good stay.

Room tip: Ask for a room away from the shared bathroom

We have words to thank for our stay at Wales house. The house is very clean, quite and organized, the room was great, the restrooms and kitchen are clean every day, organic breakfast, the location is perfect, close to downtown and University and the neighborhood is very safe and lively.

Although the house is located in a quite and beautiful street, in 2-3 minutes walking, there are lots of shops, a Target (supermarket and pharmacy), pubs, restaurants, a library, bus stops (one of them is free to get any place in the University, both in Minneapolis and St. Paul Campuses).

But aside from all these things, the heart of the house is Kelly and Julie, the hosts. They are very good and friendly people, flexible, always ready to help you with anything. Kelly is awesome organizing great excursions around Minneapolis and Minnesota. I had a travel guide but Kelly was much better.

Do not doubt if you are looking for the best. You will feel like at home!
