This fine property in the heart of Camden Town / Chalk Farm combines the traditional Georgian townhouse with sleek and modern design, great for open plan living. This cool house is a calm antidote to the hustle and bustle of London life.
I have a lovely room in my house which is situated just by Camden Lock's famous Stables Market.
The room is on the top floor, a big double room with lots of storage space. I have a small Jack Russell dog called Buster who is very cute and friendly.
The house is just steps from the famous Camden Lock Market, where you can visit the unique shops, and grab a vintage bargain, or hang out at Proud, the bar that has seen performances from Amy Winehouse and Coldplay. On the high street you will also find zillions of restaurants and clubs, bars and coffee shops. In Camden there is also a massive Sainsbury's, so you can stock up on supplies if you decide to cook at meal at home rather than eating out. It is also just a short walk to Primrose Hill, where you get a great view over the city. And Regents Park and London Zoo is just round the corner too.
The area benefits from great transportation links. It is just a short walk to either Chalk Farm, or Camden Road underground stations. Once on the Northern Line it is just a couple of stops to Kings Cross/St. Pancras, where you can catch trains all over the country and to some of London's major airports. There is also a stop on the overground (Camden Road) just a short walk from the house. This provides quick and easy access to the Stratford Olympic site, as you can take the train there in 20 minutes, with no changes.
The area is also served by several night buses, including the 88, 214 and c2, which means that if you miss the last train you can still easily get home!
Welcome! The house rules are that you are friendly and have fun in the house. Music must be played at an acceptable level so as not to upset my neighbours and if you smoke then you are welcome outside on the decking/patio area. You can use the fridge/freezer to your hearts content. The bathroom is shared with the owners. Also - we have a small Jack Russell Dog who is the sweetest dog ever and very quiet. Thanks!
I booked this room for my father who was travelling from Australia to visit. Gideon was very helpful and quick to respond during all contact. The room is a nice size with a bathroom located directly outside, providing comfort as well as privacy. Thanks mate.
This was our first airbnb experience and Gideon and Kate set the bar very high!!!
The flat was lovely and the room was spacious with a very comfy bed.
Also the location was excellent. It is very close to subway, restaurants, and a grocery store. The home is on a quiet street in an exciting neighbourhood.
Gideon helped us plan our days by giving us tips and excellent directions to attractions and use of the subway. The best part however was Gideon and Kate (Buster too!) a nicer couple you will not find.
Looking forward to a return stay.
We had the best of times at Gideon’s place. Having said that, we will split our review in three items (a) accommodation quality, (b) location, and (c) hosts.
(a) Accommodation Quality: the house was exactly as described and shown in the photos. Great house, furnished with excellent taste, clean and tidy. There's wifi available, which worked perfectly. The room was incredibly spacious and really well decorated. Last but not least, the bed was super comfortable!!!
(b) Location: the house is located in a quiet street, in the hart of Camden Town (30 seconds walk to stables market), with the tube station only a short walk, and lots of buses in the corner. Just superb!!!!
(c) Hosts: The stay was all we could have wished for… Gideon & Kate are superhosts,and treated us like friends!!! Gideon was incredibly helpful in every way, directions, tips on what to do, phoning for taxi and just fun conversation!!!! He even took the effort to print us maps with all kind of places to visit!!! Comments aside was breakfast… it was just great, and we won’t ever forget the guideon-style-eggs... delicious!!!!. Finally, the soul of the house was Buster, just lovable!!!! We miss the three of you guys!!!.
Score: 10 points!!!! The best stay in London!!! We would definitely recommend this accommodation!!!

Hi - I am a freelance photographer and I think I live in one of the most exciting areas in London. I love to travel and I love airbnb. I stayed in Frankfurt last week so had my first airbnb experience staying somewhere. It was great!
