Simple room to rent in a lovely first floor Victorian period flat
Welcome to my home; I am currently renting a spare room in my apartment which would suit a single traveller, friends travelling together or a couple! There is free wifi, fresh linen, plenty of hot water, washing machine, a gorgeous sunny south facing garden and a fully functioning kitchen which you are welcome to use :)
The apartment is very much my home and as such you'll get a warm welcome and enjoy all the comforts and mod cons that you would in your own place. I'm a true Londoner and am happy to share my love of the city with you by recommending many the cool places to visit as all the great places to hunt out in the new cultural and fashion heart of town - the East End!
The photos of the property are all recently taken so you can get an idea of the place - lovely garden and all the rooms contain many of the original features, including victorian fireplaces and sash windows in each room. The room contains a brand new guest bed that can be extended into a king for 2 persons. It also has shelves, hangers for clothes, a beautiful Edwardian mirror, sash window, original fireplace, chair, bedside table and lamp - cosy and neat!
My apartment is peacefully located just a 10 mins walk from the nearest tube station (Leyton on the central line), but only a stones throw from the heart of London and one stop from the Olympic Park and the brand new Westfield Stratford City, which has lots of shops, restaurants, and entertainment (multi-screen cinema, bowling, etc.). The apartment itself however is situated in a quiet residential street, with a small local parade of shops just opposite. Main shops, shops, ATM, restaurants, pubs all within a 10 minute walk.
Fresh bed linen including towels
Oven and hob
Shower and Bath
Tea and coffee facilities
South facing garden
Also extremely close to the City and therefore would suit business travellers.
This apartment is my home, rather than a serviced apartment so it has a relaxed look and feel. Do let me know if you have any questions about the apartment, or about London in general - happy to help out in any way I can!
***unfortunately, due to the added costs involved, for longer rentals (i.e. >2 weeks) I am only able to accommodate one guest***
I try to welcome all my guests in person, but if this isn't possible, I have a keysafe which allows more flexibility for guests as they can let themselves in straightaway when they arrive and make themselves at home :)
***Please note you booking are private rooms in my apartment where I also live***
Recycle where possible!
Strictly non-smoking inside
Please leave the apartment as you find it and clean as you go along :)
Please be respectful of the neighbours and keep noise to a minimum when coming and going and after 22:00 - many thanks!
I loved to stay at Nikki's apartment. It was a beautiful place to stay and Nikki was really helpful and always ready to help me out. Next time I go to London I will certainly try to stay there again.
Nikki has a lovely warm and cosy apartment. The room was bright and comfortable (loved the ceiling), with lots of little touches that made it feel very welcoming.
Nikki was very accommodating of our plans (we did not have clear travel plans so weren't sure what time we'd arrive). We had a lovely chat on Sunday morning but didn't have much opportunity to speak to Nikki other than this because we were so busy.
The flat is in a very convenient area - a short walk from the tube stop, and then direct line into central London. We went to the Leyton Technical pub both nights for a drink, which was fairly busy on Saturday night.
I'd definitely return to Nikki's again on future trips to London.
非常安靜的社區，離Stratford Westfield shopping certer 跟 Burberry outlet 很近。地鐵在紅線上，途徑熱鬧區域，很推薦的民宿。
Nikki was an amazing host, she made us feel home, she explained everything to us really good, and she was very responsive to all our questions before and during our stay. Her home is just perfect, very beautiful and cozy. It was a little bit far from the center of the city but we will love to stay there next time we go to London, because how comfortable she made us feel. Perfect place to stay and perfect host.
Nikki has welcomed us in her lovely appartment very warmly. Unfortunately, we didn't have the opportunity to spend more time together but Nikki had left us notes at different places in her appartment to explain us the functioning. Still being discrete, Nikki cares a lot for the well-being of her guests and shares the beautiful atmosphere of her appartment with them. In the morning she let us taste her homemade jams and switched on the electric blanket in the evening.
From a practical point of view, the appartment is well situated (10 minutes by feet to reach the tube and 15 minutes by the subway to get to the city centre) and calm. We have spent 3 days in London and could reach every spot we wanted to visit very easily. The spare room is rather small but absolutely large enough for two persons and so cosy !
The communication with Nikki after booking and before our arrival was very kind and professional. With the help of her location plan we could find her appartment easily. We totally recommend this appartment to other traverlers who want to discover London and feel at home at the same time.
Nikki is an outstanding host ! We really enjoyed our days in London and Nikki made our stay even nicer ! She gave us the feeling to be warmly welcomed and she was more than just a host for us ! The apartment and the room is exactly like on the photos - very lovely decorated so that it feels like home from the very first moment you arrive. she also made delicious jams which we could eat for breakfast on her self-made bread ! Nikki, it tasted great !! On one day she also took us to a little flower market. it was like a secret place - we would have never found on our own - and it was one of the most wonderful experiences we had on our trip! Thanks for that! I can really recommend Nikki and her apartment for a trip to London!
