This London Themed room with your own personal bathroom is priced very reasonably & accordingly for those seeking cheap last minute accommodation in a very central location. The good points are - a Westminster location close to transport facilities. Breakfast is inclusive at a time convenient to you (before 1pm). No curfew is imposed; come and go as you please. Complementary cold soft drinks and hot beverages are provided and your room has its own mini-fridge. The room is priced from US $72 and comes with a real double bed and fresh bed linen. Towels and toiletries are provided. A hairdryer & straightener is provided for your own personal use. There is a TV/DVD/stereo in the room for you to use. You can also have unlimited access to the kitchen and living room as well as WIFI use at any time.
The flip side - this room is in need of refurbishment so cosmetically a little shabby - with old carpet.& curtains & the walls need a fresh coat of paint. There is a rail to hang your clothes on and a modesty screen. *NOTE I cater for a budget traveller. It is clean and basic, but it will not be 5* Hotel sparkling as this is a real home! Hence the price - but I like to be honest and if you just need a room to crash at a cheap price and not expecting 5* standards you will be ok. (The young and open minded person/traveller who just needs a place to crash will be fine with this - US Citizens, Business people, Cat haters/people with cat allergies, Families with young children, Clean-freaks and Non-Smokers wont be - and for some reason Italian citizens who really seem to hate it here!) There is no Air Conditioning (which is common in the UK). This is a pro-smoking apartment (although I am a non-smoker myself) so if you are fussy about smoking, please dont book - my friends stay over in this room when here and an ashtray is provided in it.
*In conclusion, you get what you pay for, no frills but! A very warm welcome (and a big thank you as all monies earned are being re-invested in refurbishment of the apartment!).
Should you wish more information about the location and its surroundings and the local amenities and attractions, please see my alternative listing, the Westminster en-suite (which is available sporadically).
Any questions please do not hesitate to contact me - I look forward to hearing from you.
Living Room, Kitchen, own Bedroom & own Bathroom.
Usually just at breakfast time but I am always available if they need to ask any questions or have any problems. I prefer guests who are doing their own thing; I am not a 'hands on/lets be best friends' kind of Host. I am always available for advice on the attractions of London.
Brilliant central & safe location close to and within walking distance of Buckingham Palace, Royal Mews, Big Ben, Westminster Abbey & the London Eye.
A great underground system only 4 minutes away, with local Train station & a Bus terminus next to it & National Coach Station nearby.
If you are a clean freak and wish a more thorough clean we can add a supplement of £25 and I will hire a professional cleaner to come in half way through your stay. More details on request.
We had an amazing stay in Lindsey's apartment! The bedroom was well furnished in traditional British styled decoration, and Lindsey took great effort to ensure our comfort in every way possible!
She is also the proud owner of many beautiful cats, each unique in their own way. The cats are glad to be left alone, but are also keen to play should you decide to stop and pay them some attention. It is a dream vacation home for all you cat lovers out there :)
In short, it was a wonderful night spent in Lindsey's place, finding out more about the uk culture, and of course, enjoying time with the cats!
We had a great time at Lyndsey's, warm welcome and plenty of tips for our visit through London. The cat's are lovely and they didn't enter the room at all, they just came when we were on the living room to ask for some cuddles ;) .
The flat is perfectly situated to visit the city, at only a few minutes walk from Victoria Station.
I feel like I had much more that what I paid for, kindness and hospitality as a major value!!
Thank you for this lovely WE, we will definetly come by again when back to London!! Hope I won't wait too long to come back again ;)
This apartment is really great location, and easy to go everywhere. Lindsey is very nice and thoughtful,I was very comfortable to live there. These cats are very cute and nice.
Thank u for the delicious breakfast and the intimate present.
If you want to have a nice and not expensive travel in London, u must choose this apartment.
Lindsey is nice and really willing to help. The flat is 10min walk from Victoria station (lots of buses and coaches to go everywhere).
If you're looking for something like a really nice and sparkling hotel room, you'll be disappointed, but if you just want a modest central place for a few days it's alright. Be sure to read everything Lindsey wrote in the room description and in her profile, you'll know what you'll get. You get what you pay for ^^.
She has really cute and nice cats who didn't bother us at all. They're not allowed in the bedrooms.
Don't forget to tell Lindsey your shower time if you want hot water.
Lindsey essaye d'aider de son mieux. L'appartement est très bien situé, à 10min à pied de la station Victoria (plein de bus pour aller partout).
Si vous cherchez une belle chambre d'hôtel super propre, vous serez déçu, mais si vous voulez juste un endroit ou dormir qui soit assez central, c'est bon.
Lisez la description de la chambre et le profil de Lindsey, vous saurez à quoi vous attendre. Le prix n'est pas élevé et vous avez ce pourquoi vous payez ^^.
Ses chats sont adorables et absolument pas gênants. Ils ne vont pas dans les chambres.
Il ne faut pas oublier de dire à Lindsey l'heure à laquelle vous prendrez votre douche si vous voulez avoir de l'eau chaude.
If you want to spend a good time, you just have to read the Kitty' s text, and, if you agree, follow the rules during your travel, I promise to you a very good time !
You will enjoy many passionant moment by speaking with Kitty, a real English Woman wich is also ... a Cat's Addict.
Just read the Kitty's text, then enjoy : you will love London's people, for shure !
Lindsey is a fantastic host! She provides everything that a traveler needs and even more! She is very welcoming and lovely. Her apartment is very central located, well equipped and very nice decorated. I stayed there only for one night but when I'm next time in London I would definitely like to stay in her place.
The location is great, a few mins from Victoria station, 10mins from Buckingham palace. The apartment is nice, but the host - Lindsey is great! She is really helpfull and has great advice. She also has everything you might need there - umbrella, tootbrush, anything for showering/washing, maps of London,... We were pleasantly surprised when we saw everything =) She gave us great advices on what to see and how to see it for the cheapest. We'd really recommend!
Great weekend in London!
Just some tips that someone may find useful.
The house is very well located, less than 5 minutes on foot from Victoria station. We could come and go as we pleased and the place was very quiet.
It's true that you have to like cats, they will be watching your steps when you go to the bathroom ;) , but they never go into the room (unless you allow them...). They are very quiet and nice, this wasn't a problem.
The bed is big but the mattress is quite old, if you have back pain (as I have) you should have this in mind.
We didn't take breakfast, but Lindsey asked every day if we wanted, what is very kind.
Finally, you have to advise Lindsey about when you want to use the shower, in order to her to set the hot water, if you are going to use the bathroom when she isn't at home or if she is sleeping.
In summary, the room seems old but it's confortable, the house is very well located, Lindsey will help you with any info about the city or the transport (we really appreciate all the messages she sent us before arriving :)), and the price is affordable, so FAIR ENOUGH!!
I would stay again for sure!
Thank you Fernando for the comprehensive review. Just as an aside; the mattress is only 18 months old! Once again, I must point out I cater for super-budget travellers and had I known about your back I would have encouraged you to book somewhere else rather than comment negatively in a review about such a specialized condition. I am NOT a high maintenance Hotel - I am a private home and I do send several mails before you arrive so this could have been discussed beforehand and it is a little unfair to expect me to be able to deal with a problem that I am not responsible for.
We stayed at Lindseys place for two nights during our short trip to London. Her place is really close to Victoria station, so it is easy to get to. Her place was exactly as she described it, so if you dont like cats you definetly should chose somewhere else to stay :) Lindsey was very kind and welcoming and gave us a key in order to come and go as we liked. She also gave us good tips about getting around, which ticket to get, what to visit etc. and also keeps everything you might need at her place such as spare toothbrushes, shampoo or an umbrella.
All in all it was a nice stay at Lindseys, but we are easy going people and do not have problems with cats. If you are high maintenance, you should chose another place, but if you are easy going people I can recommend her house as she is a warm and helpful person who lives very central in London.
Thanks again Lindsey! Jule & Nils
Thanks for exhausting, but great vacation. The position of flat is brilliant. 2 mins from sainsbury´s, 5 mins from Victoria station.
Thanks for Your hospitality and good advices to our trip across London. The kittens are cute :)
May be, see You later again one day.
