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.
I am only a 5-7 minute walk to King's Cross St Pancras which has the following train/tube lines:
•Eurostar to France and Belgium
•Direct trains to Scotland [Edinburgh and Glasgow]
•Direct trains to the north of England
•Direct trains to the Midlands
•Direct trains to Kent via Stratford on the High Speed service
•Direct trains to Brighton [via Gatwick]
•Direct trains to Bedford [via Luton]
•Hammersmith and City
Please visit the TFL website for up-to-date information:
•390 bus from outside my flat goes north to Archway and west to Notting Hill Gate [via Euston, Tottenham Court Road, Oxford Circus, Marble Arch]

•205 to Paddington [for Heathrow Express trains]
•46 to Lancaster Gate [via Camden, Hampstead, St John’s Wood, Maida Vale]
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.
Suzanne gave me excellent directions to apartment and was there shortly after I arrived. She was extremely welcoming and a gracious host. Everything in the apartment was fresh and clean, and basic breakfast items were provided. A very comfortable place to stay and handy for tube and Eurostar. Would certainly recommend.
Suzanne ist eine sehr nette, interessante und diskrete Gastgeberin. Unsere Fragen wurden immer sofort beantwortet; Wegbeschreibung und Informationen waren hilfreich und ausführlich.
Wir haben uns in Suzannes Wohnung sehr wohlgefühlt und kommen sicher wieder.
Like finding a fabulous small restaurant and keeping it quiet for fear of making it too popular, Suzanne's flat in booming Kings Cross is no longer a well kept secret. Our return in less than a year to our favorite city -- and our now-favorite London digs -- was every bit a repeat of the great BNB experience. Excellent communications throughout; a spotless, well appointed bargain 5 minutes walk from the Kings Cross-St. Pancras Underground and International rail hub; a thoughtful caring host eager to make her guests as comfortable as possible. In short the perfect rental for one of two people. The only word of advice: book early!
An excellent unit in a most convenient location for us. Our host provided comprehensive information about arrival to the accommodation.
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 Antonia & Pumpkin!
