* IMPORTANT House renovation planned, please read!!! *
Sometime in April, May, June or July my house (not the flat) will undergo a substantial renovation. During this time pipes will be removed and there will be a limited water supply and toilet use. I will notify you one moth before the work starts. You will be able to cancel your reservation without a penalty. Alternatively if you still want to stay here during the renovation I will be happy to offer you 50% discount.
Small vintage flat. Very basic and simple, best suited for unfussy students and alike. Kitchen and bathroom shared. No dining table, but there is a small table in your room. Affordable, cosy and central. I invite you warmly if you appreciate small things in life. I hosted many people and majority left happy. But if you have high expectations maybe it's best if you look elsewhere..
What is it?
You are renting one room only, not entire flat. Kitchen and bathroom shared with another awesome next door Airb&b guest or a couple. Both rooms have lockable doors. I may be present at the time of your booking, depending on my travels.
Who is it for?
All down to earth folk.
What is it like?
The interior is simple and vintage. Although the flat is on the small side the room is plenty big! The house is a three story block, brick built in 1930s. My flat is on the top floor, there is no elevator.
Kitchen and bathroom shared.
Interaction with Guests
When I'm away I have a wonderful friend helping with running my Airbnb. When I'm in London l prefer to give you space and privacy.
Vauxhall is an inner city area of Central London in the London Borough of Lambeth.
South London is not as classy and glamorous as some north London neighborhoods. But it is quiet, friendly and even closer to central London.
The nearest metro station is Vauxhall, it is 10 min walk from my apartment. Vauxhall is very well connected: London Underground, National Rail trains, and London buses are all available at Vauxhall station.
Other Things to Note
1) Check in after 3pm. Early bag drop off can be arranged.
2) Because of the flat being on the top floor water pressure is not as mighty as I could wish for. Although I'm told it's common all over London.
1) If you need anything or have a query, please don't be shy to ask!
2) Please do not smoke in the apartment.
3) After using kitchen and bathroom please leave it in condition you would like to find it, neat and tidy.
4) During your stay feel free to leave/return as early/late as you like (except on arrival and departure days). But please do it with regard to other people in the flat.
5) Early arrival or late departure can be arranged, but please ask me first.
I've stayed a few times at Evelina and it is always a pleasure to come back. The apartment is ideally located, and quiet considering the proximity to the centre of London. Evelina always communicates well and I will be back again in the future.
Visiting London for a few days was lovely. Staying at Evelina's was very nice. The cosy flat was in a great location London wise. Only 10 min walk to Vauxhall tube (direct to London St Pancras, which was good for me) or 10/15 min in the other direction and you find yourself at Big Ben :) . From the room I stayed in, I could see the Shard. On Sunday I got to meet Evelina who was lovely and gave me some great tips about Airbnb. This was the first Airbnb place I've stayed in and I would recommend it. I will be looking to book with Evelina on future London visits.
Excellent place - definitely recommend it. Cool decor and great location and value
Evelina is a very kind host, she provides us lot of suggestions of attractions and restaurants. The warm welcome and lovely decoration of her house make me feel like home. I really enjoy the stay in her house :)
Evelina was the perfect host, not only were her directions helpful to me after a rough go in France, but she went out of her way to greet and bid farewell to us. She also sends a huge list of things to do while in London, we tried several and they were all amazing.
The apartment is perfectly located. You can walk to many cool local places, and most of the major historical sites are also within walking distance. You're in luck with the more distant sites too, as there are several station nearby giving you easy access to different lines.
The apartment itself is absolutely beautiful. It feels like someone is letting you stay in their home, rather than some spare room for a little extra cash. I was even lucky enough to taken one of my super American 30 minutes hot showers. What luxury!
I travel a lot, and I have never felt welcome enough to put away my clothes anywhere I was staying. Yet here I did. I'd stay here again over a 5 star hotel any day of the week. Evelina provided all the amenities (soap, light breakfast, towels, etc.) you'd get at a hotel, but makes you feel like you're in your own home.
Basically, if you stay anywhere else while you're in London, it's your loss.
Evelina was a really great host! She provided us everything we needed. The apartment was clean, nice, and cozy. It was close to everything and really easy to find. I was told about the shower problem, but there was nothing. It was perfect! I would definetly recommend the room, and if I go back to London I'd rent it again.
Gostei muito do quarto. Bem limpo, organizado, e bem perto de tudo, foi muito boa a estadia, recomendarei. Estava tudo de acordo com a descrição. Muito bom.
