About this listing

Enjoy my bright and spacious studio loft which provides a comfortable respite. A 5 min walk to the Northern Line Tube and Overground station, that offers a direct four minute train ride to St Pancras International for our European friends, and trains to Gatwick and Luton Airports for international guests. Kings Cross and Euston only ten minutes away. Fast access to the West End, the City, Southbank and beyond. Only a 15 min walk to Camden Lock Market and 10min bus ride to Hampstead Heath.

The space

Whether you want the London night life, West end shopping, peace and quiet or access to the City, my beautiful space on a small quiet street in Kentish Town/Tufnell Park is superbly located for it all. There is a comfortable double futon bed with memory foam topper that will give you a restful nights sleep along with a sofa to kick back on and watch Netflix or YouTube, if you want to relax. A large dining table provides a good space to eat or work and a generous broadband width will give you great wifi for whatever you need.

I have a cat - he is friendly and purrrrs a lot. Cat lovers should apply!

Guest access

I have a very small but well equipped kitchen including dishwasher that you are welcome to use and you can help yourself to tea and coffee and light snacks.

Interaction with guests

Either myself or my son will be here to greet you. Other than that, you will mainly have the place to yourself. If I do pop in, I will be smiling and doing my best to make you feel comfortable. I can provide all the details on how to get around - including what buses go where, the shortest routes to Camden Market, Hampstead Heath etc and the many other tourist features that London has to offer. Just ask if there is anything you want to know!

Other things to note

It really is a loft - on the Second/third floors :)

Melanie's place was everything I was looking for and more! I absolutely loved it there. Firstly, the location was excellent. 5 minutes from the tube and in a nice quiet neighborhood. Felt very safe. The whole place was given to me to use so there was a lot of privacy. The room was bright and so comfortable. I had everything I needed. The best part was their extremely cuddly and affectionate cat! I really enjoyed coming back to the cat after a day out. I definitely will choose this place again the next time I'm back in London. Thank you to Melanie and her son!

Melanie is a great host and a sociable person, she takes care of all the details and the guest's needs. The apparent is comfortable and fairly large, clean, It has all the amenities needed. The location is great if you want to stay in central London and near Camden Town.

Nice apartment near the Northen Line (convenient for those who land in the Luton airport) to the beautiful Hampstead Heath. Very bright room, very sweet cat. Camden Town is a 25 minute walk away and the area is safe both night and day. Definitely a great solution for anyone staying in London. Melanie is very careful in making the guest feel comfortable.

This was a nice place to stay. It's convenient to both Tufnell Park and Kentish Town stations (the latter is useful for Gatwick). There's plenty of space and general comfort, as well as a very friendly cat whom I had a good time playing with.

Melanie's place is in a great location. The loft room is really cozy and has everything you need. The cat is very friendly it's up a few flights of steps so caution heavy packers! Get a pizza from the stonebaked pizza place over the road from the tube.

A nice space on the 2nd level of a top floor flat (there are a number of small flights of stairs to the flat, however auto-lighting does ensure no awkward fumbling for lightswitches). Great light in the room provided by 2 windows in the roof (easily openable), both with blackout blinds for those who dont wake with the dawn. Incredibly comfy sofa & bed, friendly resident cat. Kitchen & bathroom areas very clean & well maintained by a accommodating & friendly host. Many thanks!
