Great location
95% of recent guests gave the location a 5-star rating.
We offer a single room for one person in our East London terraced house. The house is close to two tube stations that take you into Central London in less than 30 minutes. There are numerous shops, cafes, and takeaways in walking distance. Our house is safe and clean. This space is ideal for anyone visiting London on a budget.

The space
My house is located on a quiet street in East London not far from the 2012 Olympic park in Stratford. I offer a modern and clean single room for one person with a loft view of the neighbourhood.

This room shares a bathroom with one other room on the same floor.

*Be aware there is no use of the kitchen with this booking and breakfast is not included* There are many places nearby for food at all budget levels.

The house is located in the residential area of Forest Gate; an 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 centre. Supermarkets and places to eat are also a short walk.

The bedroom has a lockable door and you get your own set of keys. The bathroom is adjacent to your bedroom shared with one other room.

This is a shared house and I live here with my wife. Your room is on the second floor in the loft space. Your bathroom is directly across the hall from you. 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 Airport you may want to use the National Express bus service to London Stratford (I recommend you book online prior to arrival in London as often there is a long queue for tickets).

If coming from Luton the National Express bus (book online prior to arriving is best) departs from right outside the airport exit and will take you to Baker Street in the city where you can connect to the tube network.

Gatwick Airport has a train station in the airport which connects you direct to the city. I recommend getting the train to London Bridge or Blackfriars (not Victoria if possible).

If coming from Heathrow you are best to use the tube. The Piccadilly line will take you into the city. I recommend changing to the District line at Earls court to get to Upton Park (going east).

You will need to allow for about two hours travel time to my house as London is a bigger city than it looks.

Where you’ll be

London, United Kingdom

The house is within the residential district of FOREST GATE part of the London Borough of Newham. This is not in the heart of London but has good transport links into the centre.

The area of Forest Gate is very multicultural and has a large Muslim community. The area is changing rapidly but it still value for money when compared to most parts of inner London. The main benefits of this area are the easy transport links into central London and many fast food takeaways and other places to eat. Also the large Westfield shopping center and 2012 Olympic park at Stratford are very close by.

During your stay
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.
