Shared Living space.
This space is ideal for someone who wants quality but doesn't want to spend too much money, offering the same or more than more expensive listings with great reviews it could be ideal for you.
Please read some of the reviews before you book and check the details.
If your going to instant book be aware of check in times and my cut off times.
Offering you a very comfy double bed in a great size room but only for one person.
In the room you have TV/DVD , desk and all the usual stuff.
The rest of the Flat is shared with me and my partner and we are very quiet, friendly and approachable.
In the Kitchen it is important to remember that even though you can store food and have space in the Fridge, cooking is limited to heating things up in the microwave and no cooking after 9pm.
Were right in the centre of town between the City and the West End, so we are very close to all the sights, closest are the British Museum, St Paul's and Theatreland.
I have lived here for many years and love it and I hope you will too.
Recent review from Erin:
I really enjoyed staying in Matthew's flat. I believe he has perfected the fine balance of being a host yet giving you privacy. The flat is extremely easy to find given Matt's detailed directions. It is represented well in photos and descriptions. The room is clean, orderly and everything I needed was provided. Most of all, Matt is a kind person and welcomed me into his home. I would definitely stay with Matthew again.
Access to all the flat except my private room.
Washing machine is free for guests staying more than 4 days.
You can come and go as you please with no restrictions.
Interaction with Guests
Always happy to chat to Guests and you can benefit from my experience of having lived in London nearly all my life.
I am always approachable and love to be helpful but sometimes I just like to chill and watch TV and being as I live here you will have to appreciate that this a very domestic setting your coming in to and very unlike a Hotel.
It's a great bustling neighbourhood with Museums. Market's, Cafes, historic Pubs, independent coffee shops, supermarkets etc.
Close to St Paul's, The British Museum, Oxford Street, Theatre's , Soho, Chinatown and only a short distance by Tube to Camden, Broadway ,Petticoat Lane, Portobello and Brick Lane Markets.
Chancery Lane Stn is 5 mins walk and on the Central Line which connects up for Heathrow and Stanstead Airport's.
Farringdon Stn is 7mins walk and is good for St Pancras Eurostar, Gatwick and Luton Airports.
Several Buses connect to the central and outer zones not to mention at least 3 Cycle hire stations.
Other Things to Note
No check in before 11.30am and after 10pm so please read all the details before booking. So your flight would need to arrive at any of London's Airports before 8pm in order to meet my 10pm deadline.
We give you a key so you can come and go when you like but we ask that you are quiet.
Do not leave your bedroom window open when you go out.
The room is only for one person and no further Guests or Visitors are allowed.
About the Host, Matthew
I have been an Airbnb Host now for over 3 years now and I have to say that I am thoroughly enjoying the experience as I have met so many wonderful people.
Mostly my reviews are favourable and I am grateful for this but I have learned a lot from the slightly negative reviews too.
My experience as a Host so far has been so positive that I am happy to continue.
As a Traveller myself I know how good reasonably priced accommodation can make your Holiday so thats what I aim to offer at my place
I have lived in Holborn for the past 14 years and I love it because I am right in the centre of historic London with the best of London being easily accessible.
I love going to the Theatre , the Gym, down the Pub, watching TV, Cinema, Museums, Galleries, Restaurants, walking my Dog, and of course meeting People.
I know London well and I am happy to share my knowledge with you if you wish but of course i haven't been everywhere so I am interested in hearing your experiences also.
I try to be honest and accurate in my description of my space but please read a good few reviews as well as what I have to say before you book.
Hope to meet you soon.
