About this listing

A single room available for one guest ONLY.
The flat is situated in Hammersmith minutes from the river front and Ravenscourt Park/ Hammersmith Broadway, ideal for local or London wide access. Please be aware, my home is a simple and comfortable room in my home which rather like me is old and scruffy but also like me, friendly and safe. If you are looking for something smart fashionable or trendy, my home might not be what you are looking for. I would hate to disappoint anyone.

Description

A single room available for one guest ONLY.
The flat is situated in Hammersmith minutes from the river front and Ravenscourt Park/ Hammersmith Broadway, ideal for local or London wide access. Please be aware, my home is a simple and comfortable room in my home which rather like me is old and scruffy but also like me, friendly and safe. If you are looking for something smart fashionable or trendy, my home might not be what you are looking for. I would hate to disappoint anyone.

The apartment is well situated but small and simply decorated.
The single bedroom is best described as Monastic. Please note this is my personal room and I only rent it out to families with a third person who have rented the main bedroom or individuals for maximum stays of one week where they are really stuck for somewhere to stay. Do please feel free to ask.
The bathroom is, I am afraid scruffy and in need of renovation, but is clean with plenty of hot water and towels. The living room is modest in size but comfortable with two sofas and Sky TV. There is wireless internet throughout and an extensive collection of Movies and TV series on DVD and Books. The Kitchen is well equipped but no dining area.

The flat comes with a choice of a single room (Monastic) or a Double with a King Size Bed and the guests are welcome to use any areas.
There is wireless internet and a guest only refrigerator.
Early check in or late check out is no problem, dependant solely on other guest schedules.

I work from home and generally live a quiet life. I am happy to interact with the guests or to leave them in total peace as they wish. They are welcome to use the living room at any time.
I have no objection to any race, religion,sexual orientation or friendly (house trained) pet. My only request is that there is no Smoking inside the apartment.

Hammersmith is a wonderful multicultural neighbourhood that boasts a wide variety of cuisines, some recommended by such publications as "The Times Top 50". Three minutes walk will bring you to the river front where one can enjoy a peaceful river side walk or visit one of many friendly traditional award winning Pubs. There are numerous cultural venues nearby including both the Lyric and Apollo Theatres. The West End is less than forty minutes by tube and the London Museums are 20 minutes away on a direct Bus route. All in all Hammersmith is an ideal place to stay if you want to enjoy almost any of the wide range of interests London has to offer.

There is easy access to and from Heathrow, City Airport and Gatwick via nearby public transport. Ravenscourt Park is two minutes away and Hammersmith Broadway Undergrounds and the Central Bus Terminal are within 10 minutes walk, giving access to the District, Piccadilly, Hammersmith and City and Circle Lines as well as bus routes all over London. There is a reasonably priced local minicab company nearby.

My home is on the second floor of an old building with no lift.

Johns place is everything I expected and more. I think he truly cares for his guests and goes above and beyond as a host. The room is small (as described) but perfect for a single traveler/backpacker. He also provides breakfast for guests in the morning which is another plus. Everything is very close to his house and easy to navigate. Definitely a value for your money and a very comfortable stay. Thanks John!!

A great little find - it's not celubrious but is exactly as John describes it. Pretty close to central London ... Easy to get to ... close to some fine restaurants ... close to some good pubs on the river. I'll be back if he ever has availability... I highly recommend:-)

A very attentive and kind host, the place is perfectly situated and clean. The bed is comfortable and the space sufficient for a short stay (I was in what John calls the Monks cell). John does his best to make you feel welcome and gives you all the advice you need. A great relation quality price and free breakfast. I am perfectly satisfied.
