My place is close to Swiss Cottage, Finchley Road and Belsize Park Underground Stations, Hampstead Theatre, Embassy Theatre, Primrose Hill, Regent's Park, Finchley Road, The Washington, Haverstock Hill, Black Truffle etc..
The flat is relatively spacious (65m2). It contains a double room and a single room (which can nevertheless fit a second identical single bed, located underneath the first). Bookings are for the entire flat (although you can contact me if you wish to organize something else). There is a considerable amount of storage place throughout the accommodation. The flat also has a large, pleasant sitting room with a wide-screen television, large cable TV-package, DVD player (with an extensive collection of DVDs), a sofa, chairs and a dinner table. The whole flat has recently been repainted and redecorated, and contains a mixture of new and of elegant old furniture. Both the kitchen and the bathroom are modern and attractive. The ceilings and very high and the windows large. The flat is on the first floor of a beautiful Victorian building, originally constructed as a painter's residence. As a result, the flat lets in plenty of light. The neighbours are very quiet.
My cleaning lady will always come the day before the arrival of the guests to clean and tidy the flat, and to make the beds. She comes every two weeks so if you happen to stay longer, she will clean the flat two weeks after your arrival (at my expense, of course).
The guests can access all parts of the flat.
A friend (most likely my friend Celine), neighbour or member of my family will be available to welcome you and help you with any queries. On occasions, however, I will welcome you personally.
Everything is exactly as advertised.
Nothing other than common sense and common courtesy.
Hello, my name is Christopher. I grew up in France but am Anglo-Irish. I am a historian of Germany and Austria-Hungary. I lecture at the London School of Economics. I am currently roaming around the archives of Central Europe, chiefly Vienna, Prague and Berlin.
Usually, a family member or close friend will welcome you to the flat, explain its workings, hand over the keys, and pick them up when you leave. However, I am often in Britain, and it is likely that I will be doing all that. I am in any case available at any time for any query via email or mobile phone.
