Elephant and castle is geographically the centre of London, multicultural, markets, restaurants, coffee shops near by. Buses going all directions, tube and overground walking distances. Trendy modern and vibrant!
Super easy! by bus, tube or train or grab one of the Boris bike from downstairs the building :-) Elephant and castle is really well connected like nowhere else in central London.

Rodrigo was a perfect host during my three day stay at his apartment, which is located at a two minutes walk from the Elephant and Castle underground station, only a few stops from the West End on the Bakerloo and Northern lines. The flat was as described on the website: modern and very rationally laid out, just beside the iconic Strata tower. The room was very comfortable and clean, and even though the area is at a crossroads of very busy roads there was virtually no noise coming from the street. The shared bathroom was not a problem, since we all seemed to be on different time schedules. Rodrigo did not see too much of me during my stay, because I was out virtually from morning until late in the evening, but we had a nice chat when I arrived and I will definitely consider booking again Rodrigo's spare room should the opportunity arise for another long weekend in London.
The hosts were absolutely delightful. Polite and engaging welcoming and friendly. I was made to feel very much at home. A very chilled, easy laid back approach which made me feel relaxed and invited.
The apartment is spotlessly clean, modern and bright and airy.
The bedroom is perfectly sufficient with a comfortable double bed and lovely soft pillows.
Sharing the bathroom was not an issue. It smelt lovely of wonderful aftershaves.
The apartment is situated centrally just 5 minutes walk from the Elephant and Castle tube station , very easy to find and on foot.
I had to go to Waterloo the next day which took just 15 minutes from leaving the apartment to arrive at my destination.
My hosts were courteous, calm and with a lovely nature. I was invited to take tea and offered breakfast.
In short, Rodrigo and Emanuele are incredible hosts. I only stayed two nights, but they made me feel incredibly welcome. I especially had a great time having and glass of wine and hanging out with them on my first evening there after we realized we were in similar professions. Their space is exactly as pictured and very clean. When I'm back in London I hope to stay there again if I have the chance!
Rodrigo and Lele were very friendly and made us feel very welcome.
The apartment was clean and looked just like the photos.
There was a strike in The Underground when we were there and Rod and Lele were very helpful with instructions with other transportations.
The Wi-Fi was fast and the bed comfortable.
I would definitely recommend a stay there.
Thank's Rod & Lele
Well kept apartment and a great location to Central London. We only met Rodrigo one of the evening and he was friendly and welcoming.
About the Host, Rodrigo
Hi there airbnb members!
I bought this property only three years ago with my adorable partner Emanuele. We have been living in London as a happy married gay couple for the last 6 years, and we both love living in a city like London where you have access to all sort of activities, from concerts to festivals, exhibitions, galleries and museums of all kind, food markets, pubs, plenty restaurants and much more ..
We have a pretty healthy life style, love exercising, running or cycling, combined with a healthy diet and with a sensible social life. On a weekend we might go and check a gallery or museum or any cool exhibition or event, there is always something on! a west end musical or even ballet or opera.. concerts and also travelling are always on our to do list .. a good party every now and then too just to keep young spirit alive.
We decided renting our spare room to have the chance to interact with other people and make new friends and connections around the world, we are proud to offer a fantastic location, a new brand apartment, luxury furnished, high standards and all facilities to make your stay as convenient as possible. Our experience so far has been only positive, we've met amazing people and we haven't had any issue or inconvenient at all. Always keen to respond to all sort of queries and expect a swift booking process combined with a personal touch to make your stay a fantastic experience.
