Om dette utleiestedet
We offer a single bedroom in our classic Victorian London terraced house built around 1900.
A spacious three story house close to shops, cafes, and public transport.
Ideal for anyone visiting London for a short time without breaking the bank.
Located in old East London close to the 2012 Olympic park and stadium. I offer a modern and clean single loft room with free wifi and towels provided.
This room shares a bathroom with one other room on the same floor.
*Be aware there is no use of the kitchen with this booking and breakfast is not included*
My house is located in the residential area of Forest Gate; a ethnically diverse and now rapidly changing area of London. It is walking distance to Upton park tube station, Forest Gate train station and many bus stops to the city center. Supermarkets and places to eat are also a short walk.
The bedroom has a lockable door and you get your own set of keys.
This is a shared house and I live here with my wife. Your room is on the second floor in the loft space. Your bathroom is directly across the hall from you. We treat the house like a little hotel and everything is kept neat and tidy for you. You can come and go as you please.
It’s easy to get to my house from the airports. If you're arriving from Stanstead airport you may want to use the cheap national express bus service to Stratford (book online prior to arrival).
If coming from Luton or Gatwick the Easy bus is a low cost service (again book online prior).
If coming from Heathrow you are best to use the tube.
You will need to allow for about two hours travel time to my house as London is a bigger city than it looks.
Tilgang for gjester

Sorry no use of the kitchen. There are many places to eat in London including many small cafes and takeaways within a few minutes walk.

Interaksjon med Gjester
We welcome you to London and our home. If your a visitor to the city we can provide directions and recommendations on places to go. We do tend to leave our guests to themselves as we are usually very busy. We provide a clean and safe place to stay but we don't provide a high level of social interaction. Many of our guests prefer to be left alone and not have the hosts hovering around them all the time.
FOREST GATE is a multicultural and now rapidly changing part of London. Ideal for someone on a budget there are easy transport links into central London and many fast food takeaways. Also the large Westfield shopping center and 2012 Olympic park at Stratford are within walking distance.
FOREST GATE is has excellent transportation links with access to come of the most vibrant parts of East and North London including:
Komme seg rundt
There is now a overground rail station at Forest Gate which is on the TFL line out of Liverpool street. I highly recommend taking a close look at the London Tube Map to determine your best route. The closest tube station is at Upton Park on the Dictrict line, about 12min walk from the house. This will get you to the centre in about 30 min. There are numerous local buses and an overground rail station nearby. Let me know if you need help finding the best way around.
For most travelers I recommend getting a London Oyster card. Top it up with £10. This will get you to the house via London train, tube or bus. It is now possible to use public transport with your contactless debit or credit card. It's the same price and makes things very easy but if your coming from abroad I have no idea what currency conversion charges your bank may charge you.
The house is conveniently located in Zone 3 - 30 to 40 minutes from most London attractions by tube:
Oxford Street - 30 minutes by tube;
Westminster (Big Ben, Houses of Parliament) - 30 minutes;
Waterloo (London Eye) - 25 minutes;
London Bridge - 23 minutes;
Trafalgar Square and National Gallery - 35 minutes;
Madame Tussaud’s and the Sherlock Holmes Museum - 35 minutes by tube;
Wembley Stadium - 55 minutes;
Hyde park - 40 minutes;
Please feel free to ask us for further information on how to get to other destinations.
