The Space

This is a stylish, beautifully furnished but bijou double room in a lovely Victorian apartment closely linked to the major hotspots in London . The room is a small double that would suit friends travelling together, couples or the single traveller. The room is furnished with a large kingsize bed, bedside lamp and hooks to hang your clothes and bags :)

Get to experience typcial English living in this lovely Victorian apartment which is also my home. You will enjoy all the comforts of a well-stocked kitchen, cosy living room, full central heating and use of all facilities. There's even a sunny, south-facing garden to relax and enjoy during the warmer months.

The apartment is fantastically located for all conveniences and transport and takes just 20-25 minutes to get into the West End by tube (underground). The station is Leytonstone and is in Zone 3. By London standards this is still relatively central and the speedy Central line links up to all the major London hotspots such as London's West End, the Olympic Village and the huge Westfield Shopping centre (10 minutes away in Stratford), Liverpool Street, St Pauls and the City are all 15 minutes away on the same line and the Millenium Bridge opposite St. Paul's Cathedral will take you to the South Bank directly to the famous Tate Modern. You couldn't be better placed to explore London.

My apartment is set in a lovely, peaceful and safe part of East London in a tree-lined Victorian avenue, five minutes from a 24 hour supermarket, tube and the overground stations and also night buses going in and out of London throughout the night until the tube starts. No need to pay for expensive taxis travelling around as there are many ways to get around the different parts of London. The following amenities are included:

Fresh bed linen and towels
TV/DVD in bedroom
Cosy living room with TV and lots of books
Broadband Wifi
Kitchen facilities
Washing Machine
Oven and hob
Shower and Bath
Tea and coffee included
South facing garden with seating area
Free off road parking space

This apartment will suit tourists and business travellers alike being so well-connected to the City and the West End as well as having links to all the major airports. Stansted Airport is very close and can be reached by coach within an hour. Gatwick, Heathrow and Luton are also easily reachable via the fantastic train and tube links.

You will be made very welcome and enjoy all the comforts of a home from home. Whilst you will have your privacy and space to enjoy your stay here I'll also be on hand to answer any questions you have and provide advice and tips on your stay here in London., Drop me a line if you have any questions or would like to discuss a booking .

Overall Guest Satisfaction

Check In
  • Lesley is a great host, very friendly and helpful!
    The flat was clean, the room nice, close to the metro, close to a 24h supermarket (it's huuuge). The kitchen is very cosy, having breakfast there makes you feel as if you were at home. Quite funny.

    All in all we had a great time at her place! Very recommendable :-)

  • Lesley was very accommodating, with a 'make yourself at home' policy. I had a very enjoyable stay, highly recommend!

  • A very comfortable stay in Lesley's home while I was on internship in London for a month. The flat was clean, tidy and well equipped and Lesley was helpful and provided a warm welcome. I would recommend this as stay to anyone and would stay again if I need to be in London in the future.

  • We had such a good time at Lesley's place. Flat is in a good location, just 6-7 mins from the tube and nonstop tesco supermarket. Everything was okay, our room was cosy, quiet and tidy, towels and hairdryer were provided (website hidden) we didn't have much time to speak with Lesley, because we had had a lot of plans, she's willing to help you if you like. Next time when we get to the London we would definitely choose this accommodation again. About the neighbourhood we would like to recommend walnut tree pub which is located nearby. If you are looking for a shopping there is also primark or you can visit Stratford shopping center which is just 2 stations from Leytonstone. We Definitely recommend this place to everyone !

  • Lesley's place is very cosy. The room is very spacious and comforting. I love the buddhist decorations in the room. It gives great sense of tranquility and peace. If you love cats, you will have fun with Lesley's cat.

    The neighbourhood is quiet and safe. The Tube station and a big Tesco Supermarket is within walking distance.

    Lesley is a very helpful and informative host. I'm so delighted that she's happy to answer all my questions. It could be the nice place you'd like to stay when you visit London.

  • We had a great time at Lesley's. Her apartment is close to the tube and the station is central line, which is very easy to go anywhere. The neighborhood is very calm and there's a 24h supermarket that has everything you need. The room is very spacious with many drawers to get things organized, the house was clean and smelled good. We could use the kitchen that had everything we needed except for a part in the oven that wasn't working and we also used the washing machine. Her roommate Anna is very nice and her cat is cute. We didn't have the opportunity to talk a lot because we didn't meet very often, but Lesley is very nice and also gave us some tips. We would stay there again, London is wonderful!

  • I had a very good time staying at Lesley's place! She and Anna were very friendly! The house is simple, clean and lovely. The location is great, you can go to the center of London very easily. Definitely a place I recommend! I could not talk to them as much as I would like, but was great to know them!!! The cat is quite and friendly too... ;-)

  • Leslie's place was great! It was quiet, clean and conveniently located. The nearest Tube station was a five minute walk and there were some great and affordable places to eat nearby (in addition to one fantastic pub!) The neighborhood felt very safe and authentically London. Leslie herself gave us some wonderful recommendations for pubs, cafes, and markets in the area and in East London, in particular. She was friendly, helpful, accommodating and an all around awesome person. We couldn't have asked for a greater Airbnb experience and highly recommend Leslie's place.

I'm friendly and outgoing and everyone who comes to stay in my home gets a warm welcome. I speak French, Spanish and some Italian and like to practise whenever I can. Living in London I get to indulge my interests in culture, world cinema and the arts and there's always something new and interesting to see in such a great city.
