Guest access

You will come in and out the apartment when you want using your own key.

Room Size:
Two guests sleep in a double bed and a third guest can sleep on a comfortable and solid fold-out sofa-bed - the red chair in the photos!

If you are a group of 3 people please take a moment to consider:
- It is not a big room for 3 people - so it works best when you are active e.g. wanting to be out having fun in London before coming home to relax and sleep
- If you want to spend most days or evenings together in the room, you may find it too small for 3 people

Apartment Space:
- THIS IS A SHARED APARTMENT! You will have privacy but the bathroom and kitchen are shared with other guests
- There are two other Airbnb rooms in this apartment - each can sleep 3 people

- There is a separate bathroom and toilet
- There is always hot water

Interaction with guests

You will have full privacy during your stay. I am discrete so you probably won't see me unless you need advice or assistance. If so I am available either in person or by email / text etc.

It is important to remember that it is possible (but not usual) that with the other guests there may be 6 other people in the apartment at the same time as you.

Other things to note

Please note, the general price quoted is for a single person. There is an additional charge for each extra guest for each night. You must select the correct number of guests. The price you see when you select to book is the total price including any additional fees.

Check-in / Check-out
Check-in time is flexible so you can usually arrive at anytime as long as you give me adequate notice. Check-out is also flexible but is dependant on what time any new guest arrives. If a new guest is arriving the day you leave, your latest check out time will be one hour before they arrive. However your earliest check-out time will be 8am. Guests are not required to check-out before 8am. You can usually leave your luggage in the apartment if you check out in the morning but your plane or train leaves in the afternoon or evening. Just let me know if you want to do that.

The apartment and block are quite quiet. Both fun loving and quiet guests are welcome however it is requested that late night entrance to the apartment is done quietly and respectful of whether others are sleeping!

Please remember you are sharing the space so remember to clean up after yourself!

Living Room - this is not available to guests

Donovans apartment is very sharp and elegant. I spent a week with my two kids, that was poky, but a good place to be. The bathroom and the kitchen are clean. It is possible to prepare simple meals. In addition to that Donovan offer a selection to have breakfast. The surroundings of the lacation is very likeable. The communikation with Donovan was easy and solid. The price for the week is high... typical circumstances for London... we enjoyed it!

We stayed in a clean room in a small, well-kept three bedrooms apartment, in a good central London neighborhood. The bathroom is quite convenient, with a separate WC and a kitchen equipped with all the necessities, which however are shared between 8 and 9 occupants. We thank our hospitable and helpful landlord.

Donovan's place was perfect for a couple looking for a space near a lot of londons main attractions. Would recommend for anyone looking for a stay in central London!

This is a good place to stay if you want easy access to London by foot or by tube. It's walking distance to Borough Market and the Tate Modern, which was a selling point for me. Donovan was able to meet me in person despite my flight arriving an hour later than expected, which I greatly appreciated.

I am Donovan and live in central London
I work as a manager within a government department protecting children from harm within their families. I also make films for young people and run a charity which takes volunteers to Uganda East Africa and runs various projects there. For example we have a microcredit scheme for women who have local business ideas but no funds or ability to get a loan from a bank. I am a practicing Buddhist, a father and play lots of tennis.
