Comfortable queen-sized sofabed in the sitting room in my warm, sunny flat in a quiet cornet of North London, 15 minutes by Tube from the West End and the City. Only five minutes walk from Underground and Overground stations (Zone 2), with good night bus links.
Includes wi-fi, cable TV, towels, sheets, breakfast (with advance notice), plus I'm happy to socialise and help with travel and tourism. Shared bathroom, toilet, kitchen, sitting room. Gay and naturist friendly.
Note that this is a common, shared sitting room - it has a door (not open-plan), but two people live here permanently and need some access.
Archway has long been one of those up-and-coming areas of London, packed with shops and cafes that aren't particularly posh.
But there are some great restaurants (including the gastropub St John Tavern and the Italian 500). And Highgate and Crouch End are just 15 minute walks away.
There are also several nearby parks, including the award-winning Waterlow Park, Highgate Wood and the parkland walk that takes in Muswell Hill, Crouch Hill, Alexandra Palace and Finsbury Park. Hampstead Heath is only a 20 minute walk - to either Parliament Hill or Kenwood House.
Archway (Zone 2 on the Northern Line) and Upper Holloway (Overground) stations are just a 4-minute walk from the flat. And there are frequent 24-hour busses to the West End and the City.
No smoking inside the flat
Jack is a good host. The flat is tidy and the neighborhood is safe. Most importantly, it's close to my friend's home. Thanks!!!
I had a very brief stay at Jack's but it was a pleasure to briefly get to know him and overall my experience was consistent with the stellar reviews he's garnered from other guests. Definitely recommended.
Jack is an interesting and very pleasant host, took time to socialize with me even thought he has quite some work waiting. The flat is tidy and the neighborhood felt safe. For the night, one has the living room just for himself. Definitely recommendable.
Jack is really the perfect hote, He helped me to find the way to come at his flat when there were problems on the tube, he advised me about things to do in London. He really made me feel good and took time to discuss despite of my english. About the room, it's calm, warm, and the bed is comfortable. Moreover, it's not so far from the Underground, and many restaurants or fast food. I really recommend this flat.
Very nice place to stay!!jack are very friendly...i will come back for sure!
I had a great stay here...great location close to lots of places to eat, and Jack is very kind and helpful!
