Personalize the guest's sleeping space, even if it's in the living room. Sometimes it's just not possible to create a separate room in your home for guests. When guests sleep in the living room, where they can feel exposed, be sure to make it their territory as much as possible. Provide a place where they can put an alarm clock, glass of water etc. near the bed. Also, give them control over lighting, so they can read in bed. And make sure they know how to work your TV and media systems.
