Accès des voyageurs
The room is 16 square metres and is normally used as a dining room so you have a table and chairs and space to spread out (perfect for those drinks before your show at the Apollo, or work if you're visiting on business). The sofa bed is very comfortable for 1 person and intimate for 2 :-).
** NB: The room is ideal for 1 person or a couple sharing. This room is not suitable if you require separate beds for 2 people as there is only one bed **

------When You Book------
Since I'll be sharing my home with you, I'd like to know a little bit about you and your trip. PLEASE have an informative profile with profile picture and perhaps share something about your trip when you send booking requests - Thanks in advance. :-)
This is a period mansion block building, so no lifts were fitted. The flat is on the top floor, walking up through a common staircase. There are 75 steps from street to flat. You'll get used to them through your stay and won't even notice them by the time you leave :-D
I am still working on whether I can fit air-conditioning to the flat; as a period building under a conservation order, this is not straight forward. However, the apartment is well ventilated and on the top floor so it catches most summer breezes.
Please, no smoking in the flat, from the flat windows, or in common areas. Other than that, come and go as you please, but respect the neighbours and keep noise to a minimum when you're entering or leaving the building. Quiet hours in the building are from 11pm - 8am.
I'm now semi-retired and enjoying a less fast-paced life in London. I love this city and living by the Thames in a vibrant and changing area is pretty special. I enjoy travelling, the unhurried sharing of life with friends and family, good food, nature, architecture, culture.
Hammersmith is a great base from which to enjoy London. I enjoy sunsets by the Thames, walking around the Wetlands Centre across the river, and reading a book in the sunshine streaming through the turret windows of the flat, enjoying a glass of wine in the nearby gardens. And there's the occasional trip to Harrods or Westfield London nearby, or Royal Albert Hall & the museums at South Kensington, and to the West End (25 minutes away by tube). Come and enjoy Glammersmith for yourself :-)
