The Space

In this room there is a double bed and a very comfortable single sofa bed (IKEA LYCKSELE LÖVÅS), price indicated in the listing is for 2 people, if you are 3, there will be £10 per night for the 3rd person.

This is a terraced Victorian house, located in North London. Only 55minutes from Heathrow airport to Turnpike Lane station on the Piccadilly Line. the house is 5 minutes walk from Turnpike Lane underground station.If you take the tube/metro from this station, it will take less than 10 minutes to go to Kings Cross International, (which is the end of the Eurostar train station) and then to transfer to the Olympic park in Stratford is 6 minutes by train.

The house is in a quiet residential area. But it is very convenient for shopping and other amenities including a public library and a wide choice of restaurants. It is 2 minutes walk to the popular Wood Green shopping center with 3 major UK supermarket chains and 2 cinemas with multiple screens.

It is walking distance to the famous Alexandra Palace, which has fabulous views overlooking London and open park landscapes.

Newly refurbished room, and very clean! There is 4 bathroom and 1 kitchen to share with housemates. There is a washing machine, a dryer, oven, cooker, cooking pan, microwave, kettle, a big fridge—all modern conveniences. There is a complete kitchen dining set. Also free tea, coffee, chocolate drink and sugar. This house is over 2 floors, with 6 bedrooms and all rooms are lockable with keys, You will have your own set of keys to the room and while this room is part of our house, it is totally private. I will also give you entrance door key. You will be sharing the kitchen and bathrooms but the kitchen-diner is large. You can also use the spacious garden facilities.
All bills inclusive: council tax, water rates, electricity, gas, internet wireless connection, etc.
Towels, bed linen, toilet paper provided also a spare hairdrer. a cleaner clean the house once a week.

  • We stayed in this room for three weeks. The localization is very good, the room size was okay and the bed was comfortable, but it wasn't very clean, in fact, it seemed as the room had barely been cleaned before our arrival. There was too much dust and dirt under the bed and on corners. The bathroom was a bit cleaner, but it could've been better. It seems as the cleaning person just takes out the garbage and that's it. The other house guests weren't so nice either, our space in the kitchen cupboard was being used by someone else, the fridge was full of old food and the sink was usually filled with dirty dishes. On our third week, a mice entered our room, which was very disturbing. We called the owner to come and take care of the cleaning issue. They came after two days, our bedroom was cleaned and they gave us a board to put under the door. Considering all that, I would recommend this room if you're staying for two or three days, tops, and if you intend to stay out most of the day, eat out, etc. Personally, I would never return to stay more than a week again.

  • Nice house, clean and comfortable, with quiet people. My girlfriend and I enjoyed it very much. Recommended.

  • Thanks, Tee!

    The location is great, the room and the house are cosy and clean. Transport is closeby and price is very reasonable!

    Enjoyed my time in London.

  • I stayed in this room for two weeks and it was ok because I was only in for sleep. The bed was comfortable and the bathroom was new and mainly clean. As the others mentioned before, the stairs are loud but with earplugs you can sleep well. The other housemades are longtimes and I didn't feel very welcome.
    The house is near to the tube station (with the Picadilly line you can go almost everywhere) and to a supermarket. Résumé: I would stay there again.

  • Great place to stay; nice, clean and friendly atmosphere in the house. The two days I stayed I had a good nights sleep. When I walked into the house I fell asleep almost immediately and the bed was very comfortable. I would definitely recommend staying here and I would definitely return. Thanks tee.

  • The room was clean and comfortable, with the basic necessities. Just like the photo. We didn't get to meet Jin, but the housemates were friendly enough. Check-in and -out went smoothly and Tee (Jin's assistant) was willing to accommodate our unusual traveling hours.
    We had access to all of the modern bathrooms and the kitchen utilities. We didn't have trouble with dirty dishes at all. One shower was a bit clogged and noise was also a problem at night - the wooden stairs are very noisy and not all the housemates are equally considerate.
    We definitely got our money's worth though, and the hassles were minor.

  • The room was exactly like what you see in the photos. Location was okay, near some local supermarket. The check in went smoothly. The only problem we had was the room was not noise-proof at all. You can hear clearly every time someone's stepping on the stairs (or even running which happened quite often); walking in the upper floor; even when someone's in the toilet next door. So if you're a light sleeper, I'll recommend you to choose rooms in the upper floor. Unfortunately our housemates rarely washed the dishes after they use it. Apart from that, we think this is a good place to stay in London. We still enjoy every minute of it.

  • Nice simple hassle-free stay, nice clean room, comfy bed, wi-fi, clean bathroom etc. Also, nice area, especially for transport into the centre. I'll gladly book again. Thanks Jin!

  • The worst airbnb experience. we had a lot of problem about the room and the entire of the house. Cleaning was the biggest problem. Anyway Jin refunded to us the half of money that we paid. Think twice before rent this room and house....
