About This Listing
Lovely Little flat on the top floor of a Victorian conversion with a Balcony.
1 bedroom, large living room, kitchen, small shower room and a lovely balcony.
Very bright, cosy and comfortable flat and very central.
This is a top floor flat in a Victorian conversion so the ceiling is low just over 6.6". If you are a very tall person this could be a problem for you.
The flat is in Zone 1 ( Bakerloo line on the underground is only 5 minutes walk to flat). There is also Waterloo station 10 minutes walk from the flat ( jubilee line and British Rail).
You will be able to hear the trains coming in to Waterloo Station from the flat and although this has not been a problem so far if you are a very light sleeper perhaps this isn't the flat for you.
The south bank boosting with theaters and restaurants is only a 10 minutes walk.
You can walk to the West End in 20 minutes or it is only 5 minutes on the underground or 10 minutes on the bus.
Vauxhall is also a 10 minutes walk away. This area is full of nightclubs and bars.
Buses are very frequently so transport is never a problem in this area.
There is a large Police Station in Kennington Road, just about 3 minutes walk to the flat. You will notice a large police presence in this area because of it. This makes the area extremely safe at all times.
The flat is on the 3rd floor and there is no lift. It also has a lovely balcony where you can enjoy a cocktail or two before heading to whatever is you like doing...be it Theater, bars, restaurants. It is all very close to this cute and comfortable flat.
Kitchen - microwave, oven, hob, toaster, kettle, filtered water.
Balcony - table with 2 chairs.Lovely view of neighborhood.
Living Room - TV multi chanels, wifi and broadband.
Interaction with Guests
I will try always to do the check in but if not possible Basilio or Erica will be there.
There are a few good restaurants, cafe and markets near the area.
The Southbank is 15 minutes walk from the flat and so is Waterloo and Vauxhall.
Guests will find easy to get around and transport links to the centre are excellent.
Lambeth North Station on the Bakerloo Line is only 5 minutes walk to the flat. Waterloo Station with Julbillee, Bakerloo, Northen Line and British Rail is about 10 minutes walk to the flat. A bus from Kennington road to Trafalgar Square will take you only 10 minutes.
If you, like me, are a walker it will take you 20 minutes from the flat to the West End.
Other Things to Note
I lived in this flat for 3 years before moving in with my partner. I adore the area and the flat is very special to me. I take good care of who I let the flat to as I want everyone to feel at home but also to treat the flat as if it was their own home.
no candles or naked flames
no entrance to the attic
Fantastic experience. The apartment is in an ideal location - easy walk into Central London or to public transit. Plenty of fresh air with large windows /shutters. Comfortable furnishings and a great overhead shower.
We were greeted on time and given a thorough intro to the flat.
We highly recommend the flat but caution the stairs (3 flights) can be challenging with larger pieces of luggage or when returning after a long day of walking.
The view of Westminster outside the back window was a nice surprise and hearing Big Ben toll on the hour was delightful.
Lovely little flat! Quite convenient to tube and nice location. Ceiling height no problem! Clean, safe, with some nice little extras! A beautiful balcony! A bit noisy with train and morning traffic but I would highly recommend!!
I couldn't enjoy the flat but Everardo was very helpful at all times.
The flat is very nicely appointed, comfortable, and a great home-base for exploring London. My experience was great, everything you could want to do in London is just a short walk or tube ride away.
Dit was onze eerste ervaring met airbnb en meteen een goede ervaring. Het appartement was erg mooi en precies als op de foto's. De locatie is ook perfect, midden in Londen op loopafstand van de Themes, de Big Ben en Londen eye. Ook het metro station is te bereiken binnen 5 minuten. Het contact met Everardo was prima. Hij reageert over het algemeen erg snel via de mail van airbnb! Al met al een supertijd in Londen gehad, mede dankzij het fijne appartement.
