Canalside - camden - sofa beds

Apartment - Shared room · Flat 24 Star Wharf, Camden, London NW1 0QX, United Kingdom

The Space

A view over the canal with a terrace to sit on (and smoke if needed). I have a double sofa bed in the large living room and a bathroom with shower for guests. I have a separate shower room for myself. The sofa bed is a futon style and although one guest has said it was uncomfortable, virtually everyone else has said it is comfortable. And there are also 2 single mattresses - these are on the floor but if you want them a bit softer, please tell me as I have foam mattress toppers for them. There is a wardrobe for you to hang your clothes and store some of your things. I offer unlimited tea, coffee and bottled water and provide croissants and pain au chocolat for breakfast. It is very convenient to get into the West End, and there is the world renowned Camden market within walking distance. There are many shops, supermarkets, coffee shops and restaurants and bars all within walking distance.
And although I really enjoy people staying, I would prefer to limit each stay to a maximum of 5 days unless I go away.
The flat is in zone 2 and everything you could need is within 10 minutes walk. There are 10 bus routes locally, Camden Town underground and Camden Road overground.
There is a gym in the building which you can use.
The style is an open plan living room and kitchen with new tv and sky available.
I work from home - mostly in the office but sometimes need to work in the living room and I need to go into the living room/kitchen for my meals so it is really an ideal place if you are likely to be out most of the day. I can let you have priority for the living room between 9pm and 9am and it is obviously nicer to leave the place as tidy as you are able to during the day.
I do burn incense for my work so you must like the smell and not be allergic to it.

  • The location is great : 5 min from the Camden metro station
    The place and building are very calm
    The sofa is comfortable and we get clean towels to take a shower in a clean bathroom.
    So it's perfect fort a city trip.
    It's a shame our host Nicola was sick this specific w-e, we didn't have the chance to have a real conversation.

  • Myself and my boyfriend stayed in Nicola's apartment whilst visiting Camden for a show. It is a lovely apartment in a great area - not too far from the centre of Camden town (5min walk) but far enough that you cannot hear the hustle and bustle of the street. The apartment itself is very clean and modern with Nicola's unique home furnishings giving the place a homely vibe. Nicola is a brilliant hostess, very welcoming and thorough with explaining things we needed to know about the apartment and the breakfast provided - pastries and tea - was just what we needed. Nicola was busy with her work at the other end of the apartment most of the time whilst we were there but it was a pleasure talking to her when she was about. We had a brilliant stay and could not recommend it more!

  • We didn't meet Nicola as she was away during our stay but one of her friend was there to give us the keys and show us the flat.
    The flat is nice and everything you need is provided (sheets, towels, some maps and guidebooks, and even stuff for breakfast) !
    Just one thing to know : it's an open-plan kitchen living room (and you'll sleep on sofa bed which is in the living room).
    The area is nice, 5 minutes walk from tube station and you're not far from Camden market.

  • J'aime beaucoup dormir chez l'habitant lorsque je vais visiter une ville. Nous avons donc fait cette démarche en allant à Londres, ma maman et moi.
    Nicola est très accueillante et avons passé un bon moment chez elle. Dommage que nous ne maîtrisons pas excellemment la langue pour partager plus avec elle. Evidemment, nous avons utilisé son appartement juste pour dormir.
    Son emplacement est parfait. Je le conseille.

  • We had a great time at Nicolas place. I hadn't understood from the pictures, that the kitchen is part of the livingroom. So that was a surprise. But Nicola was really sweet and made us (myself and my two nieces aged 14) feel welcome and relaxed within 2 minutes. We appreciated the appartment being so close to everything but still be calm and quiet. We enjoyed the DVD collection Nicola has after a long day out in London and were happy to be able to charge our cell phones, Nicola had an adapter that made our cables fit in British sockets (hope you know what I mean).
    We had our privacy and our space. Nicola was happy to join us for a little chat and a cup of tea. And it was the perfect balance for us.
    The incense was actually quite intensive, but no headaches and no one offended when we opened the window and the door to the balcony facing to the beautiful canal.
    I can recommend to stay att Nicolas place. This is not a five star hotel, but it matched our expectations and I think it is good value for the money.
