About This Listing
Private room with own bathroom available in this modern and centrally located zone 1 flat - just a 5-7 minute walk from King's Cross St Pancras; perfect for all London airports and the Eurostar terminal.
Large and comfy double room available to let on a short-term basis sharing the flat with me my guinea pigs Pumpkin and Lady Marmalade [whom I share with another friend when I am not travelling - they are both super friendly and very content and squeaky to see Airbnb guests].
My spare room has a double fitted wardrobe and plenty of storage space. There is also a private shower room complete with towels and a hairdryer.
The communal areas are spacious and open plan; I have a huge settee which seats about 5 people! The kitchen is fully equipped and I also have washing facilities which you would be welcome to use.
There is a large flat-screen TV with digital channels and a DVD player and free Wi-Fi throughout the whole flat.
The flat is only a 5-7 minute walk from King’s Cross/St Pancras so perfect for commuters and anyone coming to London on the Eurostar.
The flat is only 2 minutes away from Central School of St Martins and the super trendy Pancras and Granary Squares.
You can walk to trendy Upper Street in about 20 minutes [fantastic area for shopping, bars and restaurants] and Camden Town is just a 20 minute tranquil walk the other way along the canal. Stratford International is only 6 minutes on the high speed train from St Pancras - perfect for shopping at the state of the art Westfield shopping centre.
My flat is very easy to get to from all of London's airports with direct trains to Heathrow, Gatwick and Luton.
Looking forward to hearing from you!
Interaction with Guests
It depends if I am around or not - I often leave quite early in the morning and don't get back until late, sometimes I don't ever meet my guests but I am always happy to share a glass of wine or a cup of tea if we're all in at the same time!
The easiest way to travel around London is to buy an Oyster Card from (website hidden) which can be used on trains, buses and tubes – you can buy this in advance from anywhere in the world or at any tube station when you get to London.

Very sorry but I do not accept bookings for anyone with pets [having 2 guinea pigs in the flat is enough!], babies or any children under the age of 17.
No smoking inside the flat. There is a balcony attached to the living area but I would prefer if you smoked outside the building.
No hot drinks/food on the dining table without using the protective matts.
It goes without saying but if you open any of the windows/doors please make sure they're shut and locked before leaving the flat.
We had a really great time at suzannes home. She has a very nice flat, located 5 mins from kings cross station, which is very central. Sleepingroom, bath and kitchen was very nice and clean. Unfortunatelly we didn't met Suzanne but we really felt at home.
I can warmly advice this accommpdation and Would come back there for my next visit in London.
Toller Londonkurzbesuch!! Wir waren auf eine Familienfeier nähe King's Cross eingeladen und so war die Lage einfach perfekt. Auch das Zimmer und die gesamte Wohnung ist in einem top Zustand. Leider konnten wir unsere Gastgeberin nicht kennenlernen, aber beim nächsten Mal bleibt hoffentlich auch dafür die Zeit.
Des prestations vraiment à la hauteur et une hôtesse disponible et souriante. Je recommande vraiment ce logement pour une escapade à Londres. Merci Suzanne !
cozy and very clean flat :) Central area that can go any famous places easily so that you could make your trip more comfortable. Moreover, Suzanne is so lovely and kind. Highly recommend suzanne's flat.
What you see is what you get, if not even cleaner! Our stay in London was great. The apartment is close to King's Cross St. Pancreas, which was just very nice. The rooms were clean and decorated as seen on the photos! Fresh towels and breakfast products were included. The instructions Suzanne gave (quite some time before the arrival) were very accurate. Although Suzanne had to work early, we saw her sometimes during the evening. Suzanne is very kind. Really, everything was great.
About the Host, Suzanne
I am a 30 year old professional working in the city. I lead a hectic life touring orchestras around the world, and although most days I have a typical 9-6 job, when I am not on the road I will often be catching up with friends or playing the violin in one of the orchestras I am a member of in the evenings.
I love traveling, watching football and rugby, good food and wine, and relaxing after a busy day in my beautiful home with my two guinea pigs!
