Please read all the information I have provided here before you ask for information on travel and amenities etc. A lovely bright double bedroom with loads of wardrobe space. It has a mini kitchenette, private en-suit bathroom with shower and its own private entrance, door bell and undercover porch. It is situated in leafy, historic Hampstead, on a quiet residential street 2 minutes walk to the wild open space of the famous Hampstead Heath and the manicured Golders Hill Park, both have lovely cafes/restaurants. The room is entirely private from the rest of the family house. My check in time is 2pm and check out time is 11am. I can be flexible with these times if you ask me. The house is a 5 min walk to the Finchely Road, with a constant steam of buses to Finchely Road Tube Station (the Jubilee line and Metropolitan line) from here it is about a 10 minute ride into the centre of town. The buses also go straight into London's West End, central London. It is a 30 bus ride from my house to Oxford Street. The busses also go to the main line station of Finchely and Frognal which has overground trains that go all over London. My house is 15 - 20 mins walk from Hampstead tube station. This tube station is on the Northern line. It is a 15 min tube ride to Leicester Square. There is a very clear map provided on this site, where you can see all the tube stations. Laminated maps to local shops, cafes, bus stops/tube stations and so forth are provided by me in the room. The mini kitchenette comprises of a toaster, microwave, fridge, kettle, crockery, cutlery and glasses. The fridge is stocked with the basics when you arrive.

    We spent three nights with my wife during our short stay in London ( 5 to 8th may 2016). The Hampstead area is very nice and calm, and Georgia's property is really tidy and confortable. A very good adress, just 25 minutes bus from dowtown. Christophe and Sophie 09 May 2016 - 16:44:00

    This property was just like it was described. It was clean and well put together. Quiet and safe. There are many buses going by a seven minute walk away so it is easy to access. Lovely area. We enjoyed it and would stay there again. 12 May 2016 - 05:29:00

    Georgia is a wonderful host, and really showed her stripes when my suitcase didn't arrive with me. Georgia lent me a T shirt to sleep in and did some laundry, which were much appreciated. The room is quite comfortable and well stocked with breakfast goodies and bathroom necessities. Hampstead is a gorgeous neighborhood with endless opportunities for walking adventures. The shopping is good in Hampstead village, and the trip to central London is less than 20 minutes. I highly recommend Georgia and her lovely accommodations! 23 May 2016 - 11:29:00

    Georgia couldn't have made our stay any nicer! She was respectful of our privacy but equally available. The studio is well equipped and comfortable. We loved walking into Hampstead for breakfast from her house and also exploring the ethnic restaurants in Cricklewood. 04 June 2016 - 18:23:00

    This apartment was everything we needed for our 4 night stay in London. It's located just a short bus/tube ride outside of central London, in a peaceful and charming neighborhood. We very much appreciated the tea and coffee and some additional snack/breakfast items. Also, you're only a very short walk to Hampstead Heath which is lovely for exploring. I highly recommend this apartment for the location and the value. 03 January 2017 - 14:46:00

    Georgia was very nice and accommodating. The room was very clean and quiet which was very important to my wife as she was a light sleeper. The place was about a 5-minute walk to bus stations, and a few stops to reach tube stations. 14 February 2017 - 14:38:00

    We had a wonderful time in London and the serenity of this private room was exactly what we needed after a long day walking across the city. The bed was very comfy and the room had everything required for a short stay in London. If you're used to public transportation in London, you can quickly reach a bus stop or Hampstead metro station (with a nice walk along West Heath park) and be in Camden town within a few minutes to eat a classic Fish and Chips. Every other details you need to know are in the description except the kindness of our host which is always appreciated when you travel far from home. Definitely a good address to know in London ! 03 May 2017 - 13:43:00

    We loved our stay in Hampstead Heath and the room is exactly as pictured. It was clean and well supplied with everything we needed and more. The fridge was loaded with goodies for and we had breakfast every day before leaving, including real coffee. Having a housecoat, slippers, hair dryer, body care products, power converters for our Canadian plugs etc supplied was very useful as we travelled with just a carry-on. The neighbourhood is wonderful and great to stroll through. It's just a few minutes walk to a bus stop where you can take a bus directly to Marble Arch. Coming home late at night is not a problem and the area is very quiet and safe. What we loved nearby: Walking on the Heath, visiting Kenwood House (loved it!), Old Hampstead, roast lamb and Yorkshire pudding at the Holly Bush pub, counting Porsches and other lovely cars as we walked through the neighbourhood... We would definitely go back, excellent value for money. Georgia was wonderful, responding immediately to every email I sent and was prompt in returning the security deposit. 25 October 2016 - 22:22:00

    Perfect for a single person, perhaps a bit small for a couple. It doable. Very well stocked, including with milk, bread, butter, jam, tea, sugar, etc. Fridge, toaster, microwave, kettle all provided. I love using London transport and I'm not intimidated by it (use Google Maps!) but if you don't like having to use a mix of bus and underground to get anywhere, note that the room is not in "downtown" London by all of the big sites. But it is in a lovely quiet neighborhood. Note, room shares a wall with the family, so there is some noise. Didn't bother me, only I tried not to be loud! Bed is very comfy. Would stay here again, definitely. 17 April 2017 - 07:43:00

    We really enjoyed our stay at Georgia's tiny studio tucked away in Hampstead Heath. Georgia is a thoughtful and caring host and we found the studio fitted for our needs well. It is well appointed and has some lovely touches such as comfortable bath robes and a generous supply of breakfast needs. No doubt it is small, but in nice weather there is an opportunity to set up the table on a small terrace, although it was quite cold while we were there. It is in a quiet, private location and is about 5 minutes walking distance from Finchley road which has a constant stream of buses and taxis to chose from. We are both in our mid-60s and don't mind a little walking, so it was no problem.About 10 minutes walk brings you to many restaurants, groceries and pubs.The Heath itself is a short walk up the hill from your studio. It is a fascinating, lovely area and provides access to other interesting neighbourhoods such as Highgate which is very worthwhile exploring. 23 May 2017 - 16:05:00

    I came to London to pick up a dog. This was the perfect location for me to become acquainted with the dog. It was within an easy walking distance to the park and to amenities such as the tube station and pubs and restaurants for meals. The room was compact and had everything I needed. I felt very welcome. I was pleased with my stay. 10 June 2017 - 02:57:00

    The room was adequate but seemed much smaller than the photos we viewed when we booked. It was close to the bus service that we used to get into London which was great. 13 June 2017 - 03:45:00

    I was happy to stay at this room for 4 nights. Once I figured out the public transport system with all the connections (quite helpful info provided by the landlady) I felt the room was at a great place for my needs - a peaceful and quiet retreat from the hubbub of the city that is still easily accessible. For those arriving or leaving, I might suggest using taxi for the most comfortable travel. The ease of use of the contactless cards as payment method with daily cap on the public transport has really changed the flow of the transport for the better (I used my VISA card; you can buy an Oyster card if your credit card doesn't have the contactless system). The room itself stayed comfortable even with the heatwave raging outdoors. The snacks provided by the owner for the welcome came to good use too. The room might not be the best for the people who want to make their own meals: the "kitchen" corner of the room is not big enough for that. For me it was quite enough, though. The bed was very soft - so people who prefer a bit harder might find that uncomfortable. I usually prefer them on the firmer side but slept surprisingly well in this one too. The room has more than enough of cupboard/ closet space! The nearby restaurants and shops are close enough, and really, one must visit the Hampstead Heath that is very close by. Such a gem unknown to tourists with its stunning, romantic Pergola... and the views! I would recommend this place for single travellers or couples who want a quiet stay in one of the prettiest housing areas of London (that I've visited). 11 July 2017 - 17:22:00

    Everything was perfect. Location, room, quitness. What I appreciated most were lining and towels. First quality stuff and well redolent. The best room I have ever stayed in London. Tks Georgia 21 July 2017 - 16:43:00

    I had completely forgotten to do this review then as I was going through and deleting old email I found this one: "review your recent stay". I feel bad that it took so long because it was such a great place to stay. I was visiting London alone for a few days and this quiet room was exactly what I needed and exactly what Georgia said it would be. A nice studio with a bathroom and kitchenette stocked with snacks and coffee. Georgia also provides guide brochures to local sites and electrical and phone adapters. It has it's own separate entrance so I didn't even see Georgia for the first couple of days. It's a short bus ride to the city center and the bus stop and metro are close. Lot's of nice little restaurants and shops nearby. Try Papa's cafe on the corner for a great inexpensive English breakfast. I decided to stay an extra day but the room was already reserved so Georgia put me up in a spare bedroom in her house! It was almost like being part of the family. Great place! Great people. Highly recommend! 03 August 2017 - 15:57:00

    Everything was just as described, warm and comfortable and very well appointed including fresh fruit and delicious bread and other treats which came in handy when I didn't have time to stop at a shop. Once I got the hang of the bus and tube system it was convenient and pleasant to find myself in a very nice residential neighborhood at the end of the day. Terrific! 30 March 2017 - 22:05:00

    We truly enjoyed our stay in the cozy attached one room apartment. The owner had everything to make our stay comfortable. We enjoyed visiting with the owner who was very nice and helpful! This location is a few miles out of the heart of London but has great transportation near by (buy an oyster card for the bus and rail system). The neighborhood was very beautiful and quiet. 12 June 2017 - 06:47:00

    We arrived to London by Eurostar, so we took the metro to the Hampstead stop to get to this studio. Once here, we were a little confused on how to get to the location - it's a 15 minute walk when you know where you were going - a nice, quiet, upscale residential area. We printed directions on google maps since we didn't have cell phone service here to navigate and we took a wrong turn here and there. Once we arrived, we were given a private key to our studio apartment, which was clean and well organized. Georgia left plenty of maps, instructions, and dining recommendations. There was bread for toast available, as well as water, juices, jam, and other breakfast items. Bathroom was well stocked with toiletry items and shampoos, conditioners, body wash, etc. There is also an intercom to call into the kitchen and other areas of the house that is available for use - we did not need to utilize this feature. And wi-fi is available, which is great but our iPhones seem to have trouble getting more than one or two bar signals unfortunately. The bed was soft and there were plenty of pillows for sleeping. The bed may be too soft as your weight sinks into it when you climb onto it. The door is made of glass, with a curtain that can be raised and lowered. This means your belongings may be visible when you are not there, as the curtain is best lowered from the inside. Also, there are glass blocks that act as a window in the room. Headlights from vehicles can shine through those, so you will want the curtain lowered there also to prevent being disturbed by headlights - the apartment is at the base of the driveway. Lastly, but most important to note, the studio is essentially a private room in the house. We were expecting something a bit more detached, or at least sound proof. But from our experience, some times between the hours of 10pm and 12pm, we could still hear conversations from within the house, which could prevent you from sleeping peacefully or doing anything in the bed or apartment that might cause noise. We also turned on the Telly/TV, and are unsure if that can be heard from within the house. Overall, we felt we had to be very conscious of our noise and the noise within the house during our stay. We would recommend this studio if you are looking for a place to stay that is in a quiet neighborhood and not in the heart of London. 23 April 2016 - 14:27:00
