About this listing
Bright single bedroom in a shared apartment in central London (Zone One) in Chelsea very close to the major sights and only a few minutes walk from Earls Court tube station. The flat is very bright and sunny with great views over the garden square.
I'm offering the single bedroom in my two-bedroom flat in central London (Zone 1). There is a shared kitchen, bathroom & living room and breakfast is included: cereals, tea, coffee and milk. The flat is on the third floor – it’s a historic Victorian townhouse property, but unfortunately no lift. The building is on a garden square and the flat has great sunny views overlooking the gardens. It is between Chelsea and Earls Court just a five-minute walk from Earls Court underground station on the Picadilly and District lines, about 45 minutes direct from Heathrow.
You are surrounded by many restaurants, pubs, supermarkets and tourist attractions. The Victoria & Albert, Natural History and Science museums are about twenty minutes away and Harrods only another ten minutes. Chelsea football stadium is only a ten-minute walk.
The room has a single bed, so only suitable for one person. It's a 2-bedroom flat and you will be in the second bedroom.
Towels and bed linen are provided and you're welcome to use the shared kitchen and shared bathroom. There will usually just be you and me in the flat, but, on occasion, there may be one or two AirBnB guests in the double room as well as me sleeping on the sofa.
Interaction with Guests
Some guests seek social interaction, others just want a room and privacy and I'm equally happy with both ends of the spectrum and anything inbetween. In the past, I've had one guest who became a frequent tenant and we spent a couple of weeks hiking together in Turkey. At the other extreme, there was one chap whom I never actually met in person, despite living in the same flat for multiple days.
You are surrounded by many restaurants, pubs, supermarkets and tourist attractions. The Victoria & Albert, Natural History and Science museums are about twenty minutes walk away and Harrods only another ten minutes. You can see Chelsea football stadium from the window.
The flat is just a five-minute walk from Earls Court underground station on the Piccadilly and District lines, so about 45 minutes direct from Heathrow airport. There are nearby bus stops with a frequent service in and around the city. There is also a bike rental station at one corner of the square – visible from the flat !
Other Things to Note
I only have one property, but rent out one room, both rooms or the the entire flat from time to time.
No smoking in the flat and please wash any mugs or plates etc that you use.
No guests or visitors without prior agreement
Andrew deserves every good word you can find in his reviews.
The flat is clean and cosy and the room actually looks better live than on pictures. There's everything you may need, including power plug converters or London maps/guides.
Andrew is a really nice person, kind, helpful and happy to give you some tips, which is really valuable especially when you're visiting London for the first time. It has been a real pleasure talking with him.
Definitely worth recommending!
I am a woman traveling solo and my first time with airbnb and I was NOT disappointed! Andrew was great before I even arrived, giving tips and being helpful and flexible about my arrival time. When I arrived it was late at night and he came to fetch my large suitcase for me. He made me feel so welcome and it was such a joy to chat with him and plan my days with his advice. He had converters, charger and hairdryer and was so helpful the whole time.
The neighborhood is beautiful safe and close to everything you would need within short walking distance including the tube and tour busses. The house is adorable and clean, you can hear cars through the window in the bedroom which didn't bother me at all but if you're sensitive bring earplugs.
I lost my wallet in England and was super stuck and Andrew was the sweetest! He helped me sort out a plan and even lent me money to get to airport and eat since I didn't have any access to money. Thank goodness I was staying with him because I don't know how I would have done it otherwise!!
At one point another woman rented out the room next to me and Andrew stayed in the living room. He was so accommodating to both of us! The toilet and shower are really nice and there was even space for me to put my stuff in the cupboard.
When I left at 5am Andrew even got up to make sure I had everything and help me bring my bag downstairs! He really went above and beyond for me! Thank you so much Andrew! You made my trip to England awesome! I really appreciate everything you did for me! Hopefully see you again one day :)
After climbing numerous stairs, welcomed by a simple yet airy apartment. Andrew make you feel very at home.
Andrew is a wonderful host and a great guy! Friendly, full of energy, very considerate, and persuasive as a Londoner and veteran traveller :)
The location of the apartment is quite good, convenient for everything. The room I stay is cozy and clean. I really enjoy my stay and would definitely hope to stay there again and recommend to others.
Booked a room with Andrew for my brother, who was in town for two nights, as Andrew's apartment was conveniently located around the corner of my own street. Andrew came to drop off the key in the morning at my place which was very nice. Room itself is as on the picture, simple one bed, one cupboard but with a nice view and in a great location. I will certainly consider booking this room again for other friends visiting me from abroad.
It's a lovely having Andrew as a host, esp for a someone who is trying Airbnb the first time. Even before arriving in London, he's taken the time to respond to my queries and soothed all my apprehensions as a solo traveler.
The property is wonderful. First of all, you need not spend on a taxi as it is accessible via Piccadilly line. Andrew was also there to help me with my significantly heavy luggage. The apartment is very clean and organized. Andrew is also very engaging and you can practically talk to him about anything under the sun. I would definitely recommend this listing to friends.
I really enjoyed my stay at Andrew's place. Andrew was very welcoming and extremely accommodating (he'd go to any lengths to help one of his guests with their internet access or anything else they might need, such as international sockets, maps, umbrellas ...). The room and flat were as described and I also appreciated the fact that breakfast was included.
