There is also a train station that takes straight to Victoria and is located only 3 min. walk from the flat.

This flat is very close to shops 24hrs and supermarkets providing easy reach to daily essentials.

Great neighbourhood, apartment ideally located near great restaurants and the Tube. Adriano was a lovely host. Recommended

Adriano was very friendly, easy to deal with and accommodating. The apartment was an easy walk to the Underground and bus-stop. Tesco (grocery store) was also right around the block, which was convenient since we visited it 3 times during our short stay. Visiting central London was only about a 15-20 minute ride by the Underground, and slightly longer by double-decker bus. If it is your first time visiting London (as it was mine), I would recommend researching the public transportation options if that will be your means of transportation. I had not done so, and Adriano was helpful in discussing some options, but we would have had more options with advance planning. I would recommend the apartment to someone looking for a good deal and willing to be slightly outside of central London. We saved about half vs. the hotel I had booked in Victoria; and had more room, a full kitchen, etc.

Great spot, very close to the Brixton tube stop, market, etc. That being said, was also a quiet sleep with courtyard facing room. Would stay here again. Adriano was a communicative and gracious host

I had a great stay in Adriano's flat. Fantastic location (literally 2 minutes walk to Brixton Station), a very nice and well equipped space and Adriano is an excellent and very friendly host. I would definitely recommend this flat to anyone coming to London wanting to stay close to Central, but away from the tourist area. Everything you could need is within an easy walk on the rainy days when you don't want to venture far, and at the same time, it's just minutes on the tube to get to central London. If you enjoy Brixton life, you will love Adriano's flat. I would definitely stay here again.

Hello, I'm a friendly Italian man with a very positive outlook on life.
I am an endlessly curious. I love to experience the world with eyes wide open. I never stop exploring, discovering and evolving.
I love the Arts and creative people! Life to me is a storybook full of fascinating tales. I amass information 'on the hoof' and very little passes me by. Understanding what makes others tick is meat and drink to me and proves to be a source of endless joy.
I always keep my mind active. I love beauty in all forms, I am well educated and I like to remain totally classless. This makes it easy for me to get on with just about any sort of person. I am thought-provoking and even quite deep on occasions.
I organise luxury tours in Italy for small parties and occasionally I escort them, as I am a professional tour guide too. I get involved in other exciting things which keep me busy too, such as painting, reading books, newspaper and cultural magazines, photography, video editing, cycling, theatre, music, fitness and movies.
I strongly believe a very clean, secure, welcoming feel, and comfortable house is of paramount importance for travellers who don't want to break their bank account!
I have been travelling on my own since the age of 14! I have been an exchange student in Baltimore for a year at the age of 18 and then at 20 I visited 36 States in the U.S. on a three cross Country tour. Been in Hawaii, Canada, Singapore and Malaysia, Maldives, Brazil, Mexico, Costa Rica, Morocco, Tunisia, Cape Verde, Turkey and all Western European Countries.
When you stay at my place I will make you feel a member of my family as my life's golden rule is to treat others as you wish to be treated!
I am always on an adventure. Enjoy hearing about people's travels and life-styles.
I look forward to meeting you.
Sincerely,
Adriano

Socializzo con facilità, rido di gusto, mi intrigano i cervelli acuti e mi innervosicono gli arroganti prepotenti; mi annoiano i "lagnosi" fine a se stessi ma ascolto volentieri chi ha bisogno di un consiglio o di un sostegno per trovare una soluzione. Non sopporto le ingiustizie, la superficialità e mi innamoro di chi è capace di godere delle piccole cose e di chi, come dice Aristotele, "prova un senso di dubbio e di meraviglia, riconosce di non sapere e per liberarsi dall'ignoranza ricerca il conoscere..."
