About this listing
Bright, cozy, quiet flat in the heart of London. Location is nothing short of spectacular, with views over the London Eye from the sitting room and the Strata building from the bedroom. Your perfect base to explore London, also on foot.
Standard accommodation is for one or two, in the double bedroom. One more guest may be accommodated in the sofa-bed in the living room. Please, note that the flat is on the third floor and there is no lift. Good for keeping your legs fit, but not appropriate for people with disabilities or families with babies and small children.
You will have full access to the entire property: kitchen, sitting room, bedroom with large wardrobe, bathroom and separate toilet. Kitchen utensils, towels and bed linen in cotton sateen are also provided.
Interaction with Guests
Unfortunately, if you are there, it means I am not, but I can still make sure everything runs smoothly before and during your stay.
Steps from the Old Vic and picturesque Lower Marsh, easy walk to London Eye; Big Ben and Houses of Parliament, South Bank, the Strand and Trafalgar Square (all 10 minutes), Covent Garden (20 min) and much more. Between Baylis Rd and Frazier St.
Super well connected: Waterloo and Lambeth North tube stations, plenty of buses all around, and Boris Bikes either side of the building, not to mention that you can walk to most tourist attractions and save £££.

Strictly no smoking, no animals and no parties. Please respect the neighbours and avoid excessive noise.
L'appartement est vraiment très bien situé. Il est confortable, très propre, fonctionnel - Je suis vraiment très satisfaite.
Once arriving in London, we took the underground to the Waterloo station. This was great because it was a less than 10 minute walk to the flat! We went to Cubana for dinner (which was an excellent recommendation!) and had some great food and drinks. The flat is a great location. Is was a short walk to the underground, buses, bike rentals, and food/bar locations. We also walked to the London Eye. The flat was clean and a lot bigger than expected. The beds weren't as comfortable as we would have liked though, but we would definitely stay there again!
I am sorry to read the beds were not of your liking, but I confess I am not sure I understand exactly what the problem was. If you have any specific advice as to how it could be improved, please message me via the system as I am always desirous to improve guest experience.
On the other hand, I am only too aware of the fact that we all have different likes and dislikes when it comes to bedding, and on how hard or soft we like the mattress and slate base to be, so pleasing everybody on that score will pretty much be "mission impossible"..
At any rate, glad you had an overall pleasant stay and thank you for the positive review.
The flat was exactly as advertised. The neighborhood is perfectly located; 5 min walk to Waterloo station and 15 min walk to Westminster. Thanks again to Claudia for being so accommodating after our flight was delayed over 5 hours on arrival. Would absolutely stay again and/or recommend to a friend.
Excellent place to stay. Claudia provides clear instructions and timely communication. Check in and check out were smooth. The flat was clean and exactly as described. There are some personal touches, and conveniences such as toiletries were provided if needed. The wi-fi and on-site laundry were especially nice to have.
The location was great. It is in a neighborhood away from tourists, but convenient to public transportation, and a short walk to the London Eye, Westminster, and Big Ben. There are plenty of places to eat and shop for essentials. It is also safe. Claudia is highly recommended as a host and the flat is highly recommended as well. A great place to stay n a trip to London.
lovely flat - I would definitely stay again in this flat; everything worked out perfectly:
1) flat itself: everything as described - living room, bed room, bathroom, kitchen and extra toilet; silent & friendly neighborhood
2) interior: everything you need, from hairdryer to toaster; wifi fast enough for hangout and uploading of pictures
3) location: perfectly located to visit London (eg walking distance to Houses of Parliament), nearby tube and bus lines
4) for a take away coffee in the morning just step into the nice little shop left of the apartment (2pounds for a great flat white); nearby pub to sit outside, some nice restaurants in walking distance (10min) as well as Southbank.
Claudia thought of everything to make you feel welcome and the flat was perfect for the 3 of us. We loved the neighborhood and it was a short walk to the Underground and some great restaurants. The flexible check in and out was much appreciated and she checked in with us during our stay to make sure we had everything we needed. It was especially nice to have an umbrella to borrow since I left mine at home. Would definitely recommend.
This was a perfect flat to explore London from.. Exactly as described and perhaps even better than depicted in the photos! Everything in London was walkable from here, there was a tube station and Tesco Express right down the street, and there were great pubs and restaurants around as well!
