Are you a lady travelling on your own and looking for a safe reliable place to stay in London? Are you a cosy couple looking for a romantic getaway that affords you wonderful space to be yourselves at a decent price? Or do you simply need a place with ample space to sleep up to four people including during the Olympics AND has Wi-Fi? My flat is suitable for all of the above and when you book it there is NO sharing with people you don't know ;-)
There is a minimum booking period of 3 nights but I've left my settings to allow for 1 night bookings for occasional left overs between lengthier bookings. Also please note that the base price ($100) is only for off season and sometimes for weekdays only bookings. The actual price can either be seen by typing in the check - in and out dates or clicking on the Calendar. Cleaning is free for bookings over 6 nights.
The flat can accommodate up to 4 adults or a family of 5 on beds and sofabeds. There is a queen size bed in the bedroom and a big sofa bed in the living room as shown in the pictures. If you key in 4 guests, airbnb will give a quote for all the 4 people. For e.g. 4 friends staying for a week in June 2012 would be just $50 per person per night! But if you are a couple then the price is only $150 a night for both of you! This is a luxury flat for a low price! On top of that it is even less expensive during low season months. And ofcourse it is more expensice during peak months of July-Aug. Please check my calendar for price!
If you want to experience living in a real London neighbourhood, this is one of the best area. The local shops, pubs and cafes are great (to top it up very reasonable price cafe, shops, restaurants are around as well as pricey once too).
It is 7 minutes’ walk from the famous Clapham Common (Public Park) which is buzzing with life and local people all year round. It is the best place to spend a few summer afternoons. There are a couple of local council (government) leisure facilities which could be used on a pay as you go basis. They are usually a few £ for each use which includes gym, clean and indoor warm swimming pool, racquet sports.
Less than 5 minutes’ walk to all the underground, train & bus routes. The buses are 24 hours.
It is located 5 minutes to underground station which can take you to central London (e.g. London Bridge, Bank, Embankment, Oxford circus and Leicester square) within 15-20 minutes. Buses and over ground trains also run frequently between my flat and all parts of London including central London. Additionally there are a couple of night buses which will bring you safely from central London if you fancy a late night out e.g. night clubs.
There are a lot of grocery stores e.g Sainsbury's, Tesco and M&S all within walking distance AND few £1 shops around (you will be surprise what you can get for a £1 in those shops:-)
Brixton (10 minutes walking) itself is a bit like a cool village within a large metropolis. It is a lively spot with many bars, restaurants, clubs, cinemas, cafes, markets and health food shops to name but a few. And if you value your food and the planet there is a great organic farmers market locally every Sunday! Brixton will give you a taste of the real London for those of you looking to go off the beaten tourist track into the local heart of this great city. If in doubt check out 'Brixton Village' market online and you will then know what I am talking about! It's even been written up in the New York Times.
This would suit anyone travelling through London who wants to see a bit of authentic London life with its pubs, bars, people and local living, and have wicked access to the west end and all the sights. Basically this is where the real Londoners live!
The flat has got everything you would need during your stay in London.
No smoking in the bedroom and just Keep it clean. Use the dishwasher and vacuum as much as you can :)
The flat we originally wanted to book was not available or already booked out so he offered us another flat which was close by. The flat did not seem to be the as it was shown in the photos.
The flat was clean and well presented.
Amit is a great host! For some problems one week prior to the trip Amit contacted me for a change of apartment. The one we stayed was nearer to the station if a bit smaller. We were five adults in an apartment that was for 2, max 3 people or for a family of 2 adults and 2 children, but it was all really new and well kept. 3 of us had to sleep on air mattresses, but we arranged fine, the bathroom was ok, with a bath tube, and we had no problems with heating or hot water. The apartment also has a great flat TV that we enjoied! Amit is very friendly, answered to my million questions (about the apartment and about other things as well) before and during the trip in a matter of minutes, and on new year's eve (the day we arrived) also came back to the house in the evening because the pump for my mattress wasn't the right one! Overall a great experience, highly recommended!
Dear Marzia - Thank you very much for your kind words. I apologize I had to change your accommodation as the TV aerial of flat-I broke down due to the bad weather in London the previous few days. I couldn't get it fixed before the New Year's due to holidays. I am glad that you liked flat-IV and agree that it is more suitable for up to 4 people, Ideally 2 adults and 2 children or 3 adults. I am also happy to mention that my latest addition flat-III is pretty big and can accommodate up to 5 adults. Again thank you for your generous review. Hope to see you again, Kind Regards - Amit Garg
The reservation was canceled 7 days before arrival. This is an automated posting.
Ideal place to visit London, very close to the tube and very comfortable. Amit is very friendly. Certainly recur if I return to London
Enjoyed stay in this flat, great location, comfortable to live in.
We had a pleasant stay at Amit's apartment. He was very quick to respond if any issue and tried to make our stay as comfortable as possible. We had a rental car and he was able to get us permits for our 1 week stay at 10 pounds a day. Wifi was a big plus as my husband had to work a few mornings. Very close to the bus stations and underground and the local grocery store (Sainsbury's). And if you want to stay around the neighborhood there are plenty of pubs/restaurants to (email hidden) was not the same as the one showed in the picture but it worked fine. We had lots of luggage so taking it up to the 2nd floor was a bit of a chore but overall good stay. Thanks!

About the Host, Amit
Dear Traveller - First of all my motto is hospitality! It is culturally very important for me to make my guests comfortable in my apartments. Thus I usually try to provide any thing my guest might ask me during their stay. Hopefully some of my reviews would support my claim.
Secondly, I Love traveling myself so understand some of the basic needs of the travellers. I manage my properties very professionally i.e. professional cleaning and comfortable bed.
Last but not the least I love living in Clapham myself. I've been living here for the past few years therefore I can tell you where all the best bars and restaurants are.
You’ll have plenty of your own space to do your own thing and yet I’m just a call or a text message away if you need anything. I look forward to hosting you in my awesome apartments.
