ABOUT THE ROOM:
The room has just been painted baby blue and the bathroom a coastal light glow, the old curtains have also been replaced by a pastil blue blind which prevents the morning light from coming in and is so easy to pull up and down, also the old cream colour carpets have now been replaced by walnut wood floorings which are hygienic and brilliant! this redecoration will make the room look different from the photos that airbnb has taken two years ago when the walls were green!
My lovely double room, fits more of the description of a studio perhaps, as it has its own bathroom, where you could take a long soak in its lovely tub.
The room has plenty of storage, fitted wardrobes with wooden hangers inside, and chest of drawers, it has its own little library with London maps and books from genres like, fantasy, mysticism, history and fiction, which you are most welcome to enjoy.
As my guest, you would also benefit from a brand new memory comfort mattress, which is anti-dustmite and therefore ideal for allergy suffers and is pressure and stress relieving, and helps good blood circulation due to orthopedic and NASA technology with no springs, enhancing a silent nights sleep
There is a a warm towel rail, with clean towels in the bathroom, and a warm closet, in which you are welcome to dry your clothes, or even keep them warm!
A selection of excellent toiletries and hair dryer is provided for your comfort and pleasure. Two clean towels are also in the warm closet.
You will have your own security key on arrival.
There is broadband internet access, WI FI in the room which enables you to do your work from the privacy of your room!
ABOUT THE LOCATION:
The room/studio is in my own residential flat, which is a contemporary building, and is very bright and has exceptional views.
FOOD AND FUN:
My flat is located in London's Primrose Hill, which houses many celebrities. You can often spot a few famous faces when you go to Primrose HIll 'village'.
Primrose Hill is a historical village, proud to host restaurants like, The Lemonia, previously known as the Chalk Farm tavern in the 19 century, and 'Trojka' previously known as the Russian Tea House.
The studio is only a few minutes walk to Primrose-Hill and Regents Park, the latter being one of the most beautiful parks in the world, and Primrose Hill park being the most filmed park in the history of British film making, films such as Bridget Jones's diary and the 101 Dalmatians are among many films that have been filmed in this spectacular park, where you could get the best view of London, if you stand on top of its renowned hill.
The closest tube lines are Camden Town and Chalk Farm, both which are about four minutes walk from the flat.
Camden Town is also on your doorstep, as it hosts some of London's most popular markets, like The Camden Lock Market,clubs and bars, like the spectacular Gilgamash, and historical places like the Camden Lock Stables Market.
Regents Canal's tow path is one minute walking distance from your studio and will take you to Little Venice on foot, or you could catch a boat from Camden Lock, which is perhaps only three minutes away from yo
The boats on camden canal give you a comprehensive tour of the local area including London Zoo, which is only 4 minutes walking distance from you, and much more, however their time table should be checked before hand.
It also has many restaurants and coffee shops, like 'My Village' and 'Spirals' catering lovely food for vegetarians in such a warm and friendly environment.
There are buses that go from Camden Town to all over London, the bus 274 which stops opposite the flat, off Regent's Park road, takes you to baker street, marble arch, and even stops outside 'Selfridges'.
TEA and COFFEE
A kettle with purified water is in your room, there is also quality coffee and tea in your tray, with milk to kick start your day, I have also provided breakfast bars in your tray to make this experience as convenient as possible, allowing you to have something to enjoy at whatever time you wish during the morning or even afternoon.
A brand new mini fridge has just arrived in the room, I have today turned it off, however if you wish to turn it on you may do so and it will cool up in minutes!
My place is suitable for guests who wish to explore London or attend to their business during the day and return to my flat during the night for a peaceful rest in clean and quiet surroundings, guests who wish to go out or return after midnight or those who wish to talk and do things in their room after 10pm loudly, should bear in mind that i will refrain from doing the exact same for their consideration, whether they're jet lagged and need to sleep early or even if they need a quiet night in, and have always told my daughters to abide by that rule, so I expect the same from my guests, to engage in perhaps quiet activities after 10pm as after all this is a home and not a hotel.
This place is very suitable for a professional attending her/his business in central London, as our flat is based in central London. It will also suit someone who returns home from a full on day and needs a peaceful surrounding.
No smoking or pets please. because I work from home and inside my living room, any other use THAN YOUR OWN PRIVATE STUDIO would be restricted, instead I have made your room as comfortable as possible, so you could make the most of it!
This family flat will not be suitable for guests returning home after midnight, or wishing to talk or to do things loudly after 10pm, as I have a daughter that goes to school. I will also show you the same quiet and respect that i expect, allowing you a peaceful sleep or rest at any given time. I therfor very much welcome guests that respect the peace and tranquillity of a family flat at night and return to their studio peacefully and quietly before midnight for a restful sleep. Some guests are here for a special occasion like a wedding etc, in which case I would make an exception for the midnight return as long as they return peacefully to their room.
Although I always try my very best with people, helping them and accommodating them as much as I possibly can, I would like to remind guests that if they are looking for 5 star luxury, there is the Marriott hotel which is charging over 370 pounds a night in my neigbourhood, so if guests are paying a fraction of that price to stay in one of London's most prestigious areas Primrosehill, in a flat worth over a million pounds, with all sorts of security in place, It would be nice to host only guests who have an attitude of gratitude, thank you for taking the time and bother to read my house rules, I look forward to meeting you!
Ce fut un tres bon sejour Shirin nous a tres bien recu tres gentille et disponible et la chambre correspond a la description donnèe.Nous y retournerons volontier.
We were made to feel so welcome in Shirin's home. The room was exactly as it had been listed: a large double room with a massive ensuite bathroom, really spacious bath, POWERful shower and oodles of hot water. The room was bright, clean and airy and the bed was extremely comfortable. We enjoyed our stay in Primrose Hill enormously and have definite plans to return. Thanks Shirin, sharing your home with us made for a very memorable birthday weekend :-) x
Merci Shirin et Sherry pour votre accueil chaleureux. La chambre est un petit cocon. Le quartier est très agréable, calme, avec tous les transports à proximité. Nous avons pu aller et venir librement. Nos hôtes étaient toujours disponibles pour nous renseigner. Séjour très sympa qui donne envie de recommencer.
Another lovely stay at Shirin's flat - she is so friendly and the room is ideal for a weekend's stay. We will definitely stay again if possible and recommend it to couples looking for somewhere brilliantly located in Camden.
Lovely room, great location, warm and considerate host.
Bed was very comfortable and water pressure was great. Really nothing to complain about.
Shirin was very welcoming and friendly. The room is nice and it's a great bonus to have a bathroom with window and hence natural light. Best of all is the location of the flat - in a quiet corner near Regent's Park and Primrose Hill whilst also being close to the vibrancy of Camden and the tube for access to the rest of the city.
Staying with Shirin was wonderful. The apartment is located in one of our (my bf and me)'s favorite London neighborhood, highly convenient to go downtown, and the room is exactly as clean and comfortable as shown in the pictures. Trains did not bother our sleep at all, it was actually quite a soothing sound to hear. Shirin has been a brilliant, friendly host. Will definitely go back!
Hello! My name is Shirin, I am a freelance writer and do research on the Inner life, mysticism, metaphysics and other self help related issues.
I very much enjoy other peoples company and truly believe we are one in essence.
I would very much like to share with you an extract from the mystical poet 'Rumi: 'Tired of hunting for love in this world, at last I surrender in the valley of love and become free'.
Like 'Rumi', I am Persian, but have lived in England from an early age and appreciate all that this great country has offered me.
I currently live in London's Primrose Hill with my beautiful and very kind hearted daughter Yasmin, my other daughter Sherry is away from home studying 'Anthropology' at London's 'Brunel' university.
I look forward to meeting you and welcoming you into my home!
