Studio flat in London, zone 1, SE1

Apartment - Entire home/apt · Bath Terrace, London, SE1, United Kingdom

The Space

PLEASE NOTE: At the moment I am Ideally I am looking to sublet for long weekends, weds/thurs through to Sundays and rarely whole months.

Studio flat in central London with access to Borough and elephant & castle tubes. Walking distance to Southbank and Borough Market. Set on the top floor of a Victorian mansion block, this flat is comprised of a purpose built loft bed, with sofa bed underneath for an extra guest, cute kitchen and dining area. It looks out over a lovely quiet park. It is bright and airy, with art on the walls and full of books and nice things. As it is on the top floor there is even sneaky access to the roof, with views across London! But please note - there is no lift! There is a lovely, full size bathroom with warm shower, wireless internet.

It would ideally suit a couple on a budget looking to experience proper London living. I am not looking to make tons of money, so am looking for the right people. I work in the arts, love to travel and would love to house friendly people looking for an affordable home from home.

Nearest Tubes are Borough and Elephant and Castle, with London Bridge, Borough Market and The Shard in walking distance.

  • Thank you Ed. for everything. His room is clean and with 2 giant windows, view of the garden. Close to everything: Supermarket (Tesco, Asian Supermarket) and another smaller supermarket that even open on X-mas day!... 5 mins to underground and bus stop. Full-equipped kitchen, Bathroom, 1 big bed and sofa are so convenient. Everything work out great. Ed answer message and phone call everytime we reached him. Wifi work perfectly. We have a great time at Ed's place. Looking forward to stay at his place next time I visit London!

  • I really couldn't have asked for a more perfect little flat for my trip to London. Ed is a fantastic host, very helpful and prompt responding to inquiries, and even left some info on local sight-seeing and food/shopping nearby. The flat's location was great, very close to Elephant and Castle AND Borough tube stations, and walking distance to Borough Market, London Bridge Station, and most other places on the South Bank. I'd highly recommend taking advantage of the buses, too, the stops for which are a block away from the flat and can get you almost anywhere you need to go, quickly and cheaply. The area is very diverse and quite busy with people, so I always felt safe, even as a single woman coming home in the evenings.

    The flat itself is adorable, filled with wonderful books and beautiful and fun knick-knacks. I definitely felt cozy and comfortable while I was there, and always found some new little detail of decoration that I hadn't noticed before. I can't say enough good things about this flat and host, and hope you'll enjoy staying in it as much as I did!

  • You would be hard-pressed to find a better location. Ten mins to borough market (which is an absolute must visit!), ten mins into town centre on train (if that). The bed was the most comfortable of our stay and the apartment has a great kitchen. It was so quiet at night and the heating and wifi were amazing! Ed himself was wonderful - went out of his way on more than one occasion to help us out with things external to the apartment - like travel and places to eat AND even left a bottle of wine in the apartment for us to celebrate our honeymoon! Highly recommend. Thanks Ed!!!

  • Ed has a fantastic flat and was a perfect host. He responded very promptly to all my questions and was extremely (email hidden)e flat was very cosy and clean, the bed was comfortable and the kitchen was well equipped with everything I needed. The heating was nice and warm and the shower was excellent. The location was also great - close to many bus lines and the Northern and Bakerloo lines to get whenever you want fairly easily. I highly recommend staying here when coming to London :)

  • We very much enjoyed our stay at Ed's quiet, cosy and well-equipped flat. The comfortable bed and sofa were a treat to our backs after traipsing around London all day. The location is tops for getting around per bus, tube, train or per pedes, and an interesting, vibrating "multi-culti" area, good shopping ameneties (especially Borough Market!), eateries and also a safe area. Ed was helpful, considerate and reliable in every way - he even came to collect us from where we got lost looking for Bath Terrace, in spite of previously provided itinery plan!! Thanks ever so again Ed, for that!
    HIGHLY RECOMMENDABLE.

  • Had a lovely stay at Ed's. He greeted us with literature about the city and replied promptly when we had the smallest question. The place is clean, comfy and stylish -- not to mention stocked with interesting books and records. The neighbourhood is a convenient base for touring around London and the flat even overlooks a park. I hope I get the chance to stay again sometime.
