Great check-in experience100% of recent guests gave this home’s check-in process a 5-star rating.
Air conditioningThis is one of few homes in this area that has this feature.

Come and sleep on the biggest bed you have ever slept on. In fact if you bring a picture of you sleeping on a bigger bed than mine I will refund you £10 on your stay.
Two French poets lived here and now you can. Be part of Camden's history and enjoy the delights of both Camden and London! See where Arthur Rimbaud and Paul Verlaine lived.
Not only has it a great history but it has a great present too and you can experience London in your very own home from home. Be in the centre of attractions

We stayed the night at John’s house so we could enjoy a night out in Camden. John was a thoughtful and punctual host, engaging and friendly. The room and house was full of character. We would recommend John’s place and hope to return ourselves.
