About This Listing
A large, lovely room with a comfortable double bed is available in the Queen's Park area of London, in zone 2. The apartment is on the 4th floor of an apartment block, and the room comes with a small fridge and kettle as there is no kitchen access. I also provide all linen, towels, hairdryer and iron. In the bathroom there is a bath tub with a shower and shower curtain (updated since photos taken (and a new bed too!)).
The room is perfect for 2, and I can add an air bed for a third guest.
The room is an ideal location for your visit to the city; Queen's Park has many restaurant and bars, and of course, the park itself! Just a short walk away is the amazing Portobello market, leading to Notting hill, you can walk along the canal to Warwick Avenue's 'Little Venice' and take a boat ride to Camden and its famous market.
The location also has great transport links; Queen's Park tube station is only 7 minutes away and takes you just 20 minutes to the West End, St Pancras etc... there are great bus links to the city centre and Westfield shopping mall and several night buses to bring you home after a night out.
Opposite the apartment is a large shop catering for most needs and there's a Sainsbury's superstore just minutes away.
I also live in the apartment, so you would share the bathroom with me only. I work late and wake late so we shouldn't clash.
If you have any questions please contact me and I will get back to you as soon as possible.
Enjoy your stay.

Duane was a great host. We enjoyed staying at his flat. We barely saw of heard him but he was quick to respond if we needed anything.
He met us at the tube station and escorted us to the flat. The room was pleasant and accomodating. Fresh fruit , milk, juice, and bottled water were in the fridge. Tea kettle with tea was also there. Maps and tour guides were available.
If we return we will definitely stay here again!
Top! Great host, nice & large room, good located (few minutes to underground). We felt very well @ Duanes place. Thank u!
My wife and I loved our 4 days in London and the accommodation provided by Duane was basic but clean and comfortable.
Pricing is very reasonable and the bus stop and tube station are a short walk away.
Duane is very good at sharing his property.
I can't say anything bad about Duane.
He made us (I went to London with my girlfriend) feel like home. First, he came to the tube station to welcome us; then, he prepared some fresh fruit, water, coffee and milk if needed, and then, he gave us a lot of tips to visit the town, maps and guides included.
The flat is lovely, perfect clean, and very close to the Queen's Park tube station (3-4 mins walking). And if you want to take the bus, number 6 is working all day and it leaves you even nearer.
The neighborhood is quiet, well communicated (both bus and tube), and full of every kind of shops.
If anyone wants to come to London and don't get worried about where to stay, I'd definitely recommend Duane's home to do it.
Duane was a great host! He picked us up from Queens Park and gave us directions to the city. The room was as described on the airbnb page.
