We offer a single bedroom in our classic Victorian London terraced house built around 1900.
A spacious three story house close to shops, cafes, and public transport.
Ideal for anyone visiting London for a short time without breaking the bank.

The space

Located in old East London close to the 2012 Olympic park and stadium. I offer a modern and clean single room with a sunny aspect and amazing view.

This room comes with a private bathroom (not en suite).

*Be aware there is no use of the kitchen with this booking and breakfast is not included*

My house is located in the residential area of Forest Gate; a ethnically diverse and now rapidly changing area of London. It is walking distance to Upton park tube station, Forest Gate train station and many bus stops to the city center. Supermarkets and places to eat are also a short walk.

The bedroom has a lockable door and you get your own set of keys.

This is a shared house and I live here with my wife. Your room is on the first floor with two other bedrooms. Your bathroom is on the ground floor below you. You are very lucky as this is the only room with a private bathroom. We treat the house like a little hotel and everything is kept neat and tidy for you. You can come and go as you please.

It’s easy to get to my house from the airports. If you're arriving from Stanstead you may want to use the Nation express bus service to Stratford (book online prior to arrival).
If coming from Luton or Gatwick the Easy bus is a low cost service (again book online prior).
If coming from Heathrow you are best to use the tube.
You will need to allow for about two hours travel time to my house as London is a bigger city than it looks.

Guest access

Guests have access to their bedroom and allocated bathroom only.
Sorry no use of the kitchen. There are many places to eat in London; including many small cafes and takeaways within a few minutes walk.
If you need something I will be more than happy to help you as best I can.

Interaction with guests

We welcome you to London and our home. If your a visitor to the city we can provide directions and recommendations on places to go. We do tend to leave our guests to themselves as we are usually very busy. We provide a clean and safe place to stay but we don't provide a high level of social interaction. Many of our guests prefer to be left alone and not have the hosts hovering around them all the time.

Other things to note

*Sorry there is no use of the kitchen the price is for bedroom and bathroom only. However I am more than happy to make you a cup of tea on request.
*I supply clean towels and linen. Shampoo and shower gel are free to use in the bathroom.
*I supply a hair dryer.
*Sorry there is no parking
*Breakfast is not included. There are many local cafes within a few minutes walk.

Chick in is at 12pm and check out is at 11am. Let us know if you have a late flight and want to leave your bags with us as this may be possible (it may not depending on how we are placed for that day but we will do our best).

This was my second stay at Richard's place and it was as good, if not better than the first time.

Richard and his wife were very humble, hospitalised and nice people. They welcomed me humbly and were very helpful. Infact i got more then what i paid for.

A great place for the money. Hosts were very nice and helpful, although private. The one half of their house was closed off including the kitchen and living room. They also have 2 dogs who Yap at anyone who opens the fence out front.
