Apartment in the heart of Camden!

Apartment - Entire home/apt · Bayham St, London, NW1 0AT, United Kingdom

The Space

Please note: this is a listing for a private room NOT an entire apartment.

Please note: We do not accept children as the location is unsuited to them due to the bars and clubs and nightlife of the area.

Thanks.

TRAVEL CONNECTIONS:

FOR THE WORLD:
Easy to reach all of London's airports including HEATHROW, LUTON, STANSTED, and GATWICK.

FOR EUROPE:
A short walk from the EUROSTAR for Paris, Brussels and beyond.

FOR THE UK:
Short walk to/from EUSTON and KING'S CROSS stations if you are travelling to the North of England or Scotland!

LOCALLY:
Across the street from a tube station (Camden Town station, Camden Road station is a 1 minute walk up the road as well), and nearby bus stops with frequent buses 24/7 to get all over London. There is even a cycle hire rack round the corner!

From the apartment you are literally in the heart of it all. Camden is one of London's busiest boroughs and is famous for its Camden Lock Market during the day and its selection of nightlife in the evening. This makes it the perfect spot for a visitor to the city to stay. You can walk to the very heart of Central London in 20 mins but if you choose not to you are already living in one of London's biggest tourist attractions.

Apart from this you are a stones throw from Regent's Park which is one of London's largest and nicest parks, you are around the corner from the British Library, and only a few stops on the tube from everywhere else.

The room has free WiFi internet and a 40 inch flat screen TV. Sadly there is no washing machine but there is a laundrette 2 streets away. The shower is a full sized standing cubicle with a power shower. It's nice and hot and doesn't run out! The kitchen, whilst small, is available for use whenever you wish. We also have a range of teas, coffees, and fruit juices free of charge.

It has a double bed to sleep 2 people, plus it has a second full size sofa-bed if you wish to have 2 more people which would be £15/night each.

All bed linen, towels, etc are provided upon arrival and depending on the duration of your stay will be replaced accordingly.

The one main downside stems from the positives - the apartment is in the absolute heart of one of London's busiest and most popular areas. It is also on the same street as many bus routes. This means that it is not suitable for people who need silence to sleep (weekends especially). It is not majorly noisy but I would imagine some people may not enjoy it. Oh, we are also right next to a pub which means on some days you will be able to hear them delivering kegs of beer. This is easily the noisiest part of the week!

As for us, we are a couple who have been together for 4 years. She is aiming to get in to charity work and I run a company that helps people socialise easier, so I hope we can safely say we are both nice and friendly!

If you have any further questions then please feel free to contact me to ask.

Thanks!

  • I only stayed for a couple of days at Colin's but It was enough to say I loved it. The location is perfect, the flat is very clean and tidy, as is the bedroom. The noise didn't bother me, I had a real good sleep. Colin was a wonderful host, very nice and helpful.
    I would definitely recommend the place to anyone!

  • We had a very good stay in London. The flat was clean and the host very friendly and available. And the best is that the flat is in the middle of Camden Town, just a minute from the tube station, the market, the pubs. I would go back there anytime! Thanks again to Colin for having us!

    Thanks Matt! It was a pleasure hosting you and your girlfriend :) Welcome back anytime.

  • Great location and price. The club next door can be a bit noisy but all dies down around 11pm, probably earlier. Would stay again.

    Glad to hear you enjoyed your stay Andy! Happy to have you any time :)

  • It was a perfect place to stay for me. Super Convenient location (so close to the tube station) and a very well kept room, extremely comfortable and private!
    Colin wasn't keeping too well, but still he looked after the arrangements with care and attention to the smallest things like providing me with ear plugs to avoid the weekend noise! Good collection of books although I didn't find much time to read 'em.
    Will look forward to staying here next time as well!

    Thanks for the kind words! Look forward to seeing you again some time in the future :)

  • Collins description of the house covers completely - a very vibrant area of ​​the city - but no trouble sleeping to the sound of the music from the bar… Very recommendable

  • Es mi primera experiencia con Airbnb y puedo decir que todo muy positivo.
    La habitación perfecta, con detalles interesantes como un montón de guias de London, libros por si te aburres en tu estancia (cosa que dudo), barritas de incienso, una cama amplia y un barco por si tienes que atravesar el Thamesis o los canales de Camden.. El anfitrión Colin y su novia super agradables y nada entrometidos.
    Ah, la ubicación es inmejorable, al lado del metro de Camden y pared con pared con un pub con música en directo. Ruido si, pero lejos de molestar, acompaña.
    En resumen, una habitación con very good Karma!!

    Thank you for the kind words Eva. It was a great pleasure hosting you and I hope you had a safe trip home :)

  • Colin was the perfect host. I was barely in the flat but he was extremely courteous and very laid back . The room is spacious and clean and it feels very private.
    The shower was great and kitchen easy to find what you needed.
    It is on a busy street so can noisy but that goes along with being in the center of a busy city.
    Would def stay again

About
Hi, I am a 28 year old male and I live with my 20 year old girl friend. I run a social skills and therapy company and she studies at university. Me; I grew up in Asia (HK and Malaysia), I came back for university and stayed. I love to travel and meet new people. I enjoy discussing everything from science and religion through to politics and culture. Her: She grew up in London, loves to travel, studies Anthropology at university, is interested in charities and animals (but not people haha), and used to be a vegetarian. She is currently applying to volunteer for the Samaritans helpline. Us as a couple: We have been together for 2 years and recently moved in to this apartment. What you can expect from us as hosts: We are very relaxed and easy going, life is too short to get upset or worry. We like a relaxed atmosphere here as well. We are not noisy but we don't mind if you are (within reason!), and depending on whether we are free to hang out we might even show you around some of the local area. However, we both have odd schedules so it is not always possible. If you have any other questions feel free to ask. We are both very open and relaxed. In the words of the Prophet Bob Marley - Don't worry, be happy.
