The space

PLEASE READ CAREFULLY BEFORE BOOKING!

Private double room in a spacious (over 900 sq ft / 88 sq m) and trendy 2-bedroom apartment with stunning terrace on the River Thames. The flat is trendy and minimalistic. DLR connection to Bank and Jubilee Line to West End in 20 min. London Excel is 8 mins walk away. City Airport is next door (5 min drive). O2 is one stop by cable car! In fact you can see the cable cars and Excel from my flat!

The location is very convenient as it is in the border of Zone 2 and Zone 3. Nearest DLR station is West Silvertown which is 5 mins walk away. You can get a DLR to Canning Town (next stop) and hop on a Jubilee Line tube to Canary Wharf (6 mins), London Bridge (11 mins), Waterloo (15 mins) or Oxford Street/Bond Street/West End (20 min). It's also 2 stops away from London City Airport (takes 5 mins by taxi). You can have fun at West End or watch late night shows and theatres and get an Uber back home for only £15-£18 (without surge price).

I have washing machine, dishwasher, microwave, ironing board/iron, heating, wifi broadband, free car park, shower cubicle, bathtub, 42 inch flat screen LED TV, dining table and 6 chairs, big sofa.

I am the landlord. You will be sharing the apartment with me. You will get your own private bedroom and I will be at the other room. I am a 35/year old professional who works as a Strategy Consultant to Fortune 500 CEOs. I travel a lot and specially to Paris, Amsterdam and San Francisco (sometimes every week!). I am a Londoner and passionate about food and wine - happy to advise you on where to eat, what to do etc. You will have access to all of the apartment including living room, kitchen, terrace balcony etc. I am at work most of the day anyway so you will only see me at night.

Guest access

Practically the entire flat except my own bedroom. Guests can access kitchen, living room, bathroom with shower, the other bathroom with bathtub if you want to, terrace balcony, washroom everything. Complimentary mineral water, tea, coffee, milk, eggs and muesli free on me! If you are nice to me, I may also pour yourself a glass of red wine or two for free! If you like espresso in the morning, I have a Nespresso machine with Rosabaya (strength category 6) coffee pods.

The TV is 42 inch flat LED and it has 800+ satellite channels including SKY MOVIES in addition to Netflix and Amazon Prime Instant Video! All free.

Interaction with guests

I am not at home most of the day as I work long hours. You will only see me at night (or may be not as I travel to Paris and San Francisco very frequently. In that case the whole flat is yours!).

Other things to note

The area is quite residential and it's not a party place. It's nice and quiet. You will hear occasional sounds of flight take-offs from next door London City Airport.

I was at a conference at the Crystal Centre near the Excel and could not have found a more convenient location. A free visitor parking space was really appreciated. Kunal was extremely helpful on arrival and the room was clean, tidy and comfortable. A good nights sleep and a 2 minute stroll to the conference the next day was an added bonus. Great host, great property and a fantastic location.

I arrived in London, LCY airport, and made my way to the apartment by DLR. Kunal had given the keys to a friend, and I had the phone number. I called the friend, who was at a meeting, but managed to arrange a taxi to a location where I could pick up the keys. A somewhat adventurous beginning, but I got in without any problems. The apartment is situated beautifully near the Excel meeting center, where I needed to be. Or rather, first to St Georges, for an early morning anatomy course. My stay was very comfortable, and I would really love to meet Kunal sometime, as I consider the flat my home away from home!

I was attending an event at the ExCel and was looking to stay within walking distance of the venue. As this was my first time using Airbnb I chose Kunal's apartment based on the the strength of his previous reviews. I wasn't disappointed. The apartment was a five minute walk to the ExCel and was clean & very comfortable. It had everything I needed. It was also very quiet at night. A great location. Kunal was an excellent host. Although my flight was delayed the morning I arrived Kunal went out of his way to wait and greet me, putting himself under pressure in the process (apologies again!!). He was most welcoming and helpful, providing plenty of information about the area. An absolute gent, I would definitely recommend Kunal as a host and look forward to staying with him again.

I was attending a show/conference at the Excel, and I was looking for a place within 5-10 min. walk to the conference centre. Kunal's place was exactly what I was looking for. Kunal has a very modern and comfortable flat with a great view of the docks, and can easily be reached by DLR or by Emirates Air Line, which links the Docklands with O2 (North Greenwich on Jubilee line). Kunal's a great host. He made me feel very comfortable. I'd definitely book again next time I'm in East London.

Beautiful apartment with fantastic views. Proximity to Excel London. An amazingly gracious host in Kunal. He made me feel completely at home. Kunal was there for anything I needed - directions, making restaurant reservations, booking an airport taxi etc. Arriving in late, Kunal picked me up at the station, even made some dinner for me. His fantastic & healthy breakfast smoothies got my day started right and our spirited conversations helped me unwind right, despite the jet lag. Kunal truly made my first Airbnb experience the right one!
