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 space

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.

Guest access

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.

Interaction with guests

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.

Other things to note

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

John is a fantastic host!! The location is close to a bus stop and a few minutes from train station. The area is quite nice and you can find stores in the area for cheap snacks to have on the go. I'm glad I've stayed there! I really enjoy speaking with John and he place was a great fit for my travels.

The equipment was sufficient, including plenty of foods and towels. Sorry for not knowing more because I did't ask for much things. John was a very kind and helpful person. His home lines near to the District line--which can be taken to go to many tourist attractions like Hyde Park, Big Ben and the Tower of London, very convenient.

The stay was excellent. John is a wonderful host, and his home is located conveniently between Heathrow and the city of London. The accommodations are great for anyone looking to do a lot of exploring/sight-seeing as the amenities are exactly what you need to get ready in the morning and to come back in the evening. John is also an intelligent conversationist in addition to being a wonderful guide for anything that you may want to do while in London. I'll definitely be back for my next English adventure.

I keep returning to the best place in London. Was it my 6th time here? Or the 7th? Anyway, I already plan few more return visits, as I enjoy staying at John's place a lot. He is seriously the best host!
