A lovely, clean and airy penthouse apartment with one bedroom available for guests. There is two other bedrooms with lovely creative people living in, and there is a kitchen and balcony with an amazing sunset!

Very central to anything you might need in London and with amazing restaurants, cafes, markets and stores nearby.

PS: The lift is being replaced by our landlord in October. Please note the flat is on the 8th floor, and I have reduced the price as a compensation

-I have moved the bed and desk around, and added a small seating area - it very similar just more sitting spaces and Iggy Pop is a bit more hidden :)

Kim's place was so great. We had such an awesome stay at his stylish apartment. The view is amazing and the room is very well decorated. The apartment block is right in front of a main bus route so it is easy to get around. Kim was super easy to communicate with. Would stay better next time we are in London if it was free :)

The apartment is as described. Great location, and quite spacious as well. The apartment is on the 8th floor, and the lift was broken for the whole duration of my stay, and I wasn't informed of that beforehand. Quite disappointing. Other than that, it was a pleasant stay.

Kim was a very generous host and provided very clear instructions about his apartment and how to find it. There were treats waiting for us upon arrival at the room, which truly lifted mine and my companion's spirits after 2 hours of traveling. We were very surprised and pleased at how clean the room was and all the amenities included in the restroom. Kim was a great host and left a lasting impression on me. The room itself is gorgeous with a really great view. The location is perfect with plenty of things to do around the area and only 30 mins bus ride from central London. Would highly recommend this place. :)
