You simply cannot be more central in Camden than our apartment. Even people who live in Camden are amazed at the location! All the bars, restaurants, night clubs and tourist attractions are within minutes of us and central London itself is 10 mins!
This is an entire apartment in Camden Town.
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 apartment has free WiFi internet and a 40 inch flat screen TV, we do not have satellite but we do have a dvd player and a selection of DVD's. 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 2 full size sofa-beds if you wish to have up to 4 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!
FOR THE WORLD:
Easy to reach all of London's airports including HEATHROW, LUTON, STANSTED, and GATWICK.
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!
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!
If you have any further questions then please feel free to contact me to ask.
Please note: We do not accept young children as the location is unsuited to them due to the bars and clubs and nightlife of the area. However during mid week bookings we are happy to accept children.
p.s. the satellite TV is currently not working due to scaffolding on the building. A range of DVDs have been made available though.
You have the run of the house and can come and go.
Interaction with Guests
We tend to give guests their privacy but are at hand if you need any recommendations or have any questions regarding the property. We can both be easily reached :)
Search for Camden on the internet and you will see what we mean when we say that it is a major tourist area and very very bustling. I simply cannot list all the different things to do, bars to play in, restaurants to eat at or nearby attractions. Check out our Guidebook for our list of places to see!
You can see the tube station from the apartment and we are located near a major selection of bus routes giving you some of the best transport links in the city. There are also numerous taxi ranks and companies in the immediate vicinity.
Please treat our apartment like you would treat your home :)
You are provided a set of keys (if more needed please let us know in advance)
The best way to contact us before your stay is through Airbnb.
Enjoy your stay!
Colin made us feel very welcome and made everything available to us; there was coffee/tea, cereals and we could use what was in the apartment. Also he left some good advice on nice restaurants in the area...we went to the Indian restaurant and it was great...
The apartment was as pictured on the site and the area was awesome. We loved it. It was a night life area so it was noisy but Colin left earplugs for our convenience..
Colin und Becky waren sehr freundlich und die Absprachen haben gut funktioniert. Top Gastgeber, auf die man sich verlassen kann!
Man kann sich auch definitiv auf die Angaben in der Anzeige verlassen :-)
Die Wohnung ist sehr zentral gelegen, verschiedene Bus- und Bahnstationen, Einkaufsmöglichkeiten und Pubs/Bars sind schnell erreichbar.
Die Wohnung befindet sich neben den Lagerräumen eines Pubs bzw. eines Clubs in einer angrenzenden Seitenstraße (da passen, wie wir jetzt wissen, sehr viele Bierfässer rein ;-) ).
Geräuschpegel ist sehr hoch, aber die bereit gelegten Ohrstöpsel machen es nachts erträglich.
Die Wohnung an sich erfüllt grundlegende Bedürfnisse, ist aber leider schon etwas abgelebt und war nicht besonders sauber.
Wir hatten aber frische Bettwäsche und Handtücher, das war super!
Insgesamt kann ich Colin als Gastgeber definitiv weiterempfehlen!
Vielen Dank nochmal für alles!
Colin & Becky are a very lovely and reliable couple.
You can definitely rely on the information in the advert.
Everything went well with the agreements.
The flat is located very centrally. There are tube and bus stations as well as supermarkets and pubs/clubs within walking distance.
The flat is located behind a pub/club in a side street (and as we know now, there is a lot of space for beer barrels ;-) ).
The noise level is very high, but with the ear plugs it is bearable at nights.
The flat itself meets the basic needs, but is unfortunately a bit old and was not very tidy.
But we got fresh beddings and towles, that was super!
To sum up, I would definitely recommend Colin as a host!
Thanks again for everything!
Perfect place. Colin waited until our arrival. The neighborhood is beautiful. With a 5 minute walk, there is everything: transport, pubs, food. Perfect. We stayed in 5, the house is a bit small, but we were quite comfortable. The strategic location of the house deserves 6 stars. Very recommended.
Booked for a group of friends staying overnight in Camden. Great location right in the middle of town. Not much to the flat, but if you need a convenient place to crash then it's fine.
location was great and convenient. very spacious
Location was perfect for our group- we just needed a place to lay our heads and a way to make coffee in the morning..a great place when you need to have a home base for rolling through Camden. Colin was great at communication and had good recommendations for the area.
Really nice apartment, had everything that myself and my two friends needed. It's in a really good location, less than minute from Camden Town tube station and close to some cool places to eat and drink. Colin and be my we're really helpful in the lead up to our stay and were very helpful upon our arrival. I would definitely recommend to friends.

Hi, I am a 31 year old male and I live with my 23 year old girl friend. I run a social skills and therapy company and she studies at university.
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.
Us as a couple:
We have been together for 4 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.
