About this listing
A double room to let in a spacious, luxury, designer, two bedroom, garden flat in Holland Park
Are you new to London? into the arts? Theatre? Like museums? Art galleries? Well if you are, we are definitely the flatmates for you!
You will be sharing with a friendly, creative, middle-aged gay man.
I'm not the clubbing 'out all night' type (those days are over sadly) and I appear to be entering my National Trust years. However, I'm not a fuddy duddy and I like to think I'm fun to be around :)
I work during the day (so you can come and go as you please) but would be more than happy to advise you on the places to visit while you're here in London (I've been to most of them!)
Sun to Thurs £85 per night
Fri to Sat £90 per night (no High or Low Season)
£30 extra a night for an additional guest (over one)
