About this listing
A comfortable room and a good breakfast in my tiny Victorian house in a quiet street London's lively East End, just 7 minutes walk to Stratford station with its excellent transport connections.
The house is an end terrace brick built 19th Century Railway cottage
It is small uncluttered, simple, comfortable and clean. It has nothing fancy but all the basic things, including wi fi.
Your room is upstairs, It is small but it has a very comfortable double bed, washbasin, and storage space.
Downstairs (steep stairs!) is the living-dining room with an open fire, a galley kitchen leading to a tiny garden, the bathroom, also downstairs (shower ) is shared .
I certainly can’t compete with a hotel, the room is small, but it is very clean, the sheets are cotton and will be ironed, the pillows are feather, there are towels, bath robes a hairdryer and a universal adaptor..
You will have your own door key so you can come and go any time. There is wi fi. The kitchen is small and not great for sharing but you are welcome to use it to prepare simple meals and snacks. I provide a cereal, toast, tea coffee fruit for breakfast.
You will be my only guests during your stay.
When you arrive I will give you your door keys, show you the ropes- wifi pass words, house eccentricities and local information and leave you to settle in.
This is my home, you will be my welcome guest, I want you to feel comfortable, at
I will do my best to make you feel at home, while respecting your privacy.I want you to feel welcome comfortable while you are are here. I am always happy to spend a little time with my guest swapping stories, and will help out with local information, but I am aware that you are not in London to see me, there is always a lot to do and see here, so when you are home you will need calm and privacy and space!
The area is lively, mixed and changing fast. There are good shops, a multi screen cinema and dozens of places to eat in the new Westfield Center, which I am told is the biggest shopping mall in Europe, There is typical east end market, good local pubs, and little cafe's restaurants on the route from my house to the station.
Stratford station has the Jubilee line and the central line ( 15 mins to the City 20 to Westminster. Docklands light rail- to Canary Wharf, Greenwich -cutty sark and Maratime museum. Overground to Richmond and Kew gardens. Rail to essex and connections to Eurostar.
When you arrive I will give you a set of keys - or a set each if there are two of you. After that just feel at home and come and go as you please. You are welcome to use the living room, and the kitchen for preparing snacks. I can't offer my guests laundering facilities but there is a service wash laundrette near by, so you can drop off laundry and collect it at the end of the day.
Interaction with guests
I want my guests to feel comfortable, welcome and at home. I love to hear their stories and am happy to help out with maps planning ideas for days out , but I know London can be tiring and that you will need quiet, and privacy at the end of a busy day.
Other things to note
There are nice clean white bathrobes shampoo and shower jell.
Check is flexible generally, I can be home whatever time you arrive you just need to tell me when it is. Check out is 11am. but you are welcome to leave bags for the day and collect them before you travel.
I want you to feel comfortable and at home, tell me if anything bothers you, I want you to enjoy your London stay.
Its a no smoking house.
Its not a great place for very young, children wh arejust walking or crawling because of the steep stairs. But I do like children and older children are very welcome. Just remember, the room is very small and has one double bed.

I am an artist who loves to travel. For the past few years mainly in Africa. I know how much the place you stay can affect your trip. its important to start and end your day in a comfortable, secure,welcoming place. As a solo traveler I often need the help of local people. If you choose to be my guest I will do my best to make you feel comfortable and at home, help with information, and give you space.
I think home should be a clean, uncluttered and and relaxing place.
