Charming high ceilinged characterful room in super flat in a quiet Victorian (19th Century) in a beautiful, quiet street in Camden, very near to the famous Camden market and Regent's Park. You have use of 39 square meter, and is perfect for 2 people, though 4 can stay, if needed.
A home, quiet, very safe with a good, modern kitchen, with small fridge and clothes washing machine.
This is a nice flat in central London, perfect for touristing or as a stay, instead of more expensive (and normally not as nice) Bed and Breakfast accommodation available in London.
Comfortable double sofa bed and a 26 inch screen TV, freeview and free wifi are included as well as obligatory cleaning, towels and linen, too; so no need to bring linen.
It's only 2 minutes walk to restaurants, shops, bars, pubs and cafes etc. and has a view to lovely gardens from the kitchen.
There is a preferred stay about 3-4 nights, though please get in touch, if you have any questions about this:)
If you want to bring additional guests, on top of the 2 people staying, please add 40% on top of the price. Maximum 4 people can stay and 2 of them will make use of a very comfortable luxurious self-inflatable mattress, which is a dream to sleep on!
Please remember that you may be sharing the flat with me. I am very easy going and will be at hand if you need anything, but otherwise you probably won't notice me :)
The kitchen, bathroom, hallway and of course the studio are all available for your use and you'll have your own key, so you can come and go as you please, as it will be your home for the stay.
Interaction with Guests
Naturally, I'll help you as much as I can with your stay, and if you have any questions during your stay, I am willing to help. Most people treat it as a studio flat, which in effect it is, in terms of the space you use.
I think Camden is the best place to live in London, as it's near to everything, in a really safe neighborhood and beautiful street, with nearby attractions.
There is plenty of pleasant strolls in the nearby area, including well known Primrose Hill (where film stars, for example Jude Law, live), Regent's Park and Hampstead Heath, for example.
It is super easy to get to the Camden from all the London airports as Camden is directly North of the very centre of London. In other words it has easy acces to and from all the London airports. Please calculate about 2 hours from arrival from any of the airports to the flat door, unless you take a bus (slower) or taxi (not much quicker). If you only have hand luggage, take off half an hour for the travel, normally. Let me know the airport you are arriving at and I can direct you easily to the flat:)
There is a map, which includes both overground rail/train services and the tube/underground services. It is available on Transport for London website, I believe.
Camden underground station:
Literally 4 minutes walk from the flat, which takes you to Leicester Square and Covent Garden, Oxford Street (I.e. the West End), or King's/St Pancras and Liverpool Street Station within about 15 mins from your door.
there are many buses available, day and night, as well as local taxi firms and black taxis nearby.
Barclays cycle hire:
very popular, though be safe in the traffic, as London is not perhaps as friendly as some other cities, to cycle in. You use a bicycle (sponsored by Barclays Bank) for a maximum 30 minutes at a go (with a 10 minutes break between each trip) for about 1 pound per day. Docking stations, where you pick up the bike(s) are within 2 minutes form the flat :)
Rickshaws, boats on the river, tourist buses, London Eye:
In the centre of London there is also bicycle rickshaws, which are quite fun (though maybe a bit pricey) but go in them at your own risk. The boats on the river are worth the money as is a trip into Camden from Little Venice with a longboat or going from Hampton Court Castle by boat (about 4 hours). London Eye, the large iconic ferry wheel by the Thames river is a nice experience, too.
There are several major train stations serving London, and all are easy to get to from the flat, too.
The good thing is, if you fancy walking home from the very centre of London, it is not too far to walk, though there is always transport, day and night.
The best thing is to (website hidden) the trip you want to go, as it gives you super information, whether you go by train, bus, underground-tube, car or by foot.
Other Things to Note
Please read the listing as most information is there, and if it is not, please do search in the website search engines for London first, before contacting me, if possible.
I have included a lot of info here, but please feel free to contact, should you need to, of course:)
I would normally need at least one day's notice, though I would prefer more notice, of course. Also, please make sure you provide a photo of yourself on your won listing, and make sure I can reach you by phone before booking, please.
If you want to see a show etc, please try to book it before you come, so you get a good price, as musicals for example are very popular.
Please treat my flat as if it were your own home, as it is a residential area. It is not a party flat, but a nice, relaxing and safe bolt hole from which you can easily discover literally all that London has to offer:)
Marcus' apartment is very well located. A couple of blocks away from the Metro. If you follow his instructions you will not get lost ever. There are restaurants and stores around it which are nice to visit. It's located in the ground floor so it's very simple to carry your bags inside. The temperature inside was warm and cozy which helped a lot because I was there in very cold days so I rested pleasantly. The neighborhood is very relaxed and very quiet. Marcus is a very kind and respectful person, he received me with chocolates and a warm welcome and his instructions were really clear. He was always available when I texted him and he was constantly making sure I had a good time during my city "expeditions" and he enjoys to chat which was a big plus because I like to talk a lot. I definitely will recommend the place.
Marcus was a very caring host, he paid attention to every detail and made us feel at home. He was discreet albeit available whenever we needed him.
The flat itself is not huge but the bedroom is big enough for a couple or two friends. It has everything you need and it is all bright (large window). Good mattress with a heater in it. Fully equipped kitchen (loved the juicer !). Everything was perfectly clean.
Location: literally 1 min walk from Camden tube station and 30 seconds from Camden High Street where all the pubs are. Ideal for visiting London, at the heart of the city.
I would definitely recommend this room, it is a good deal for centre London.
Marcus was a fantastic host! He greeted us at the door even though our flight did not land in London until 1:30 AM. He is very accommodating and even left us a box of chocolates! The private bedroom is just how it looks in the pictures; clean, tidy, with extra linens. We could not have been more pleased with our stay and Marcus's friendliness.
Nous ne regrettons pas du tout d'avoir séjourné chez Marcus. Il s'est montré très accueillant, les indications pour arriver chez lui étaient très claires. L'appartement est idéalement situé, juste à côté de la station camden town. Le quartier est très vivant et on est en très peu de temps près de tout les quartiers incontournables de Londres. Le canap lit était un peu usé mais ça ne nous a pas empêché de bien dormir la rue est très calme. Merci marcus à une prochaine!
we were getting a very very nice welcome from Marcus ,the flat is in the heart of camden.we were in marcus'home like if it was our's . love+++
Marcus is a really kind and awesome guy who helps us a lot when we stayed at London. Well, the location of his house is perfect and we can easily get to most of the famous places in this town, HIGHLY RECOMMENDED! Next time I will still choose this lovely place. Thank you again Marcus.
We loved the place. Very central, quiet, nice room.
Marcus was a very pleasant host. Discret and present when we needed.
We would recommend it and would love to come back.
Valérie and Marcus

I live in central London, Camden, 4 mins from Regents Park and the underground in a charming street and I like travelling myself and can accomodate up to 8-9 days, depending on availability, holidays etc.
I am quite active in the arts and socialising with friends, colleagues and I like improving myself as well as running one or two businesses.
I like meeting new people too and I am quite open minded and easy going.
