We're located in Zone 2, and a nine-minute walk from Mile End Underground Station, along side the delightful Mile End Park.
This station is serviced by three different tube lines; a 15 minute ride to the city centre and a 5 minute ride to Westfield Shopping Centre in Stratford.

We offer a spacious, modern and quiet room with a very comfortable double bed, wardrobe and writing desk.
There’s a window seat overlooking the Regent’s canal in the room, where you can be lulled in the summer by the falling waters of Johnston Lock.
You’ll have access to your own spacious private bathroom furnished with a bath/shower. Towels, bed linen, hair straightener and hair dryer are provided. Internet wireless connection is available and free. There's even a Luggage Scale to make sure you're not over the limit after your shopping sprees.

We have a privileged view of Canary Wharf, the Regent’s canal and that of the communal gardens. We’re located in Stepney, a multicultural part of London that has seen a lot of regeneration thanks to its proximity to the Olympic site.
We are three minutes away from Mile End Park and a 10-minute walk from the nearest Tube station, offering great transport links on the Central, Hammersmith & City and District lines.

I have a spare double bedroom in a luxury apartment with it's OWN private bathroom located in a very trendy part of London. The room is fully furnished with a desk and chair, double bed, (there is an extra single bed available as well), builtin wardrobes, chest of drawers, it's own telephone (free international and national phonecalls), and comes with its own brand new bathroom with a glass walkin shower.
The rest of the flat is modern, newly refurbished and renovated with entirely wooden parquet flooring, a large modern kitchen, a large living room with a 42 inch flat screen TV with cable/sky plus satellite and large, new couches to chill out on after a hectic day in London! And of course there is high speed internet access with unlimited downloads.
The location is awesome - a trendy part of London with a lot of actors and musicians living around here. James McAvoy, David Tennant (Dr Who) etc. The apartment is a 5 min walk from loads of bars, awesome restaurants, clubs, shops (you can get some cool bargains here at non-tourist prices), and the major supermarkets. It is also a 5 min walk from the bus stop that takes you directly to the West End, Trafalgar Square King's Cross/St Pancras, Euston and many central tube stations. If you prefer, Highgate station is a 15 min walk away, but the bus is awesome and quick with loudspeakers announcing the stops - and a great way to experience the city. The buses are 24 hours so you can come and go from Leicester Square and the West End at any time of the day or night!
This would suit anyone travelling through London who wants to see a bit of authentic London life with its pubs, bars, people and local living, and still have wicked access to the west end and all the sights. Basically this is where Londoners live!
So to recap, included is:
FREE international phonecalls (landlines).
High speed internet
Cable/Sky plus Satellite TV
Breakfast cereals, tea, coffee, hot chocolate, biscuits
A huge English Garden to enjoy complete with foxes, owls and squirrels - your bedroom looks onto it.
Plenty of maps, tour information for other parts of the UK, Stonehenge, Bath etc as well as info on London's best attractions.
There is a washer dryer available for laundry at a cost of £3 per load.
I'm a 27 year old professional actor. I'm often around to give some tips on London, what's hot to see in the theatre, where to go etc...might even take you there if you're buying the drinks!
If you're interested, please let me know a bit about yourself and when and how long you would like the room for. Please note there are three flights of stairs to the apartment.
Look forward to hearing from you.
