The Space


The room has just been painted baby blue and the bathroom a coastal light glow, the old curtains have also been replaced by a pastil blue blind which prevents the morning light from coming in and is so easy to pull up and down, also the old cream colour carpets have now been replaced by walnut wood floorings which are hygienic and brilliant!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!


The room/studio is in my own residential flat, which is a contemporary building, and is very bright and has exceptional views.


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'.


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 surroundings, guests who wish to go out or return after midnight or those who wish to talk and do things in their room after midnight should book elsewhere.


This place is very suitable for a female professional attending her business in central London, as our flat is based in central London also as I live here with my daughter Yasmin this is a very friendly environment, which will suit someone who returns home from a full on day and needs a peaceful surrounding.

  • Great place to stay. Great location very tidy and clean. Very secure.and shirini was a very friendly host

  • We stayed in Shirin's apt for 2 weeks and really enjoyed our stay. The bed was comfortable, we slept quite well, the room was very clean and the bathroom is spacious. Camden is a very cool, hipster-filled place, and the market on Saturdays and Sundays can be very entertaining. My girlfriend and I were there to conduct research at the British Library, and the Camden metro station is pretty close to the apt (we would be in King's Cross in 10 min!). Another advantage is that there are a number of good restaurants, cafes and bars on the next street. There is also a Whole Foods and a little grocery shop (mainly fresh fruits) both of which stay open until 9pm 7days a week, and two laundry places that also work on the weekends. We would certainly stay here again and recommend Shirin's place.

  • Die Location befindet sich wirklich an einem super Ort nahe der Tube-Haltestelle Camden Town und doch in ruhiger Umgebung (ausser den Zuggleisen gleich unter dem Fenster, aber man gewöhnt sich schnell daran). Das Zimmer und das Badezimmer jedoch sind leider nur halb so schön wie auf dem Bild... alles ist ein bisschen runtergekommen und das Bett wird mittels Büchern und einem Spannseil zusammengehalten. Die Sauberkeit generell lässt ein bisschen zu wünschen übrig. Das Bett war aber sauber bezogen und die Badetücher waren frisch. Shirin ist eine sehr nette und unaufdringliche Gastgeberin.

  • This is a private room, with its own bathroom, in the flat where Shirin and her family live. It is very comfortable and quiet. Shirin and her daughter Yasmin were very warm and helpful hosts, though, because of my own schedule, I had limited contact with them. Because I got going every morning, Shirin provided me with a mobile breakfast in the form of granola bars. Finally, the location is great, about a 5 minute walk from the Camden Town tube station and the Regent's Park Zoo. I would definitely stay here again. Thank you, Shirin.

  • Conveniently close to Camden Town station, and the market. Found cycle hire station just out front and used stations all over London. Host was polite and helpful but we spent most hours out of the flat, so she made access easy for us to manage alone. Thanks for the hospitality!

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!
