About this listing
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!
We enjoyed our stay at Nikki's apartment very much. It's really a wonderful place with lovely interior decoration and was perfect for us to relax after a long day of sightseeing in London. Nikki has really thought of everything (like towels, European adapter, a hairdryer, very fast wifi...) We felt very welcomed at Nikki's home and were glad that we chose it for our holidays. We would definitely stay there again! Thanks a lot, Nikki!
Both myself and my buddy Laura had a wonderful time staying with Nikki for our vacation in London. Nikki herself was very sweet and ready with recommendations for restaurants and bars in the area.
The backyard area was particularly lovely on nights when we just wanted to kick back at home.
My friend and I had an amazing time at Nikki's place. She is so welcoming and gave us a tour of her house as soon as we arrived. She is very thoughtful and left a few books of London sightseeing tips at the little night stand right by our bed. She has a very lovely place (with a beautiful backyard) and we really enjoyed the stay. I hope I can come back and stay for longer in the future! I would strongly recommend her place.
Nikki made us feel very welcome. She is very warm and friendly and a great host! Prior to our visit, Nikki was very communicative and made sure access to her home would be available when we arrived. She made sure that we had everything that we needed and gave us very helpful recommendations for places to see and things to do in London. The neighborhood is nice, safe, and a short walk to the Tube. The listing description was also very accurate. Nikki is a very fun person and a joy to stay with!
Nikki was an extremely gracious host. She recommended places for us to do in London and the guidebooks she had really helped us out. Her place is very close to the train station, grocery stores and cafes. The apartment was in a safe neighborhood which had a lovely garden. When I return to London I would definitely stay with Nikki again.
Très bon accueil de Nikki dans sa jolie maison qui correspond tout à fait au descriptif. Le quartier est calme et très facile d'accès. De nombreux commerces à proximité. Je recommande cette adresse.
We loved how kind Nikki was during our stay. Easy walk to the metro. Took about 20 minutes to get downtown.
