The Space

This is one of the rooms in our semi-detached house with adjacent private shower, bath & toilet. It has a wardrobe with space to put clothes in and is very quiet. The house is at one end of a private courtyard with plenty of greenery around. There is free wireless internet, plus you’re welcome to use the kitchen. There is also a large outside patio with a bench to relax in.

Our home is a 10min tube journey to central London. The bus stop is just around the corner with numerous routes directly into town. You are in walking distance of the South Bank, Tate Modern, the London Eye, Imperial War Museum, Houses of Parliament, Old Vic Theatre, the Oval, and numerous good restaurants and pubs.

I provide bed linen, towels and shower gel. I'm more than happy to meet you at the nearby tube station (Kennington or Elephant & Castle) when you first arrive.

Overall Guest Satisfaction
Check In
  • William has small but very cosy room in the center of London. It was very kind of him to wait for us in the middle of the night. Very good books on the shelves. The bathroom is just great. I would definitely recommend this room to everyone.

  • Like some of William's previous guests, this was our first AirBnB experience, and I can only echo all the positive comments that they have posted. We didn't meet William until the morning after we arrived, but the dogsitter (and dogs!) gave us a warm welcome and all the information we needed to get started.

    As others have commented, the bedroom is large enough, with enough storage room for clothes/luggage, the bathroom is very spacious, and both are spotlessly clean. Very helpful tourist information is also available in the room.

    Our interaction with William was quite limited, due to our packed schedule, but he was very helpful and accommodating, and we never felt like we were imposing in his very nice home. The location is very convenient with good bus and Underground connections nearby, but it's only a 15 minute walk to Lambeth/Waterloo bridge, so it's really central.

    Considering the location, the house is unbelievably quiet and peaceful, a virtual oasis, but with some very nice pubs nearby if you're actually thirsty.

  • Super quiet and cozy accommodation close to the Bakerloo line. The room and bathroom was very clean and tidy, size of the room was sufficient for two people, bathroom was enourmous and access to kitchen was with no issues. William was very kind a helpful with any question asked, plus his two pugs (Willy & Milly) were super-cute :)

    Highly recommended for anyone who wants to visit London for couple of days.

  • William and Phil answered all our questions and gave us Oyster cards to use. There are many restaurants and a Tesco close by. We made good use if the Underground, the Kennington station is a short stroll away. The room and bathroom were clean and just as pictured. The room would be ideal for a single person. With two, we had to stow one suitcase under the bed. There is a wardrobe for storage which adequately held our other case. We loved Millie and her new brother Wally.

  • William is a great host, always ready to answer to any question and eager to help.
    The room was as clean as it could be, as well as the private bathroom. It's very comfortable and has plenty of space to leave the luggage.

    The house is located near the Kennington tube station, which makes it very useful.

    Hope to be back soon!

  • A great appartment, a lovely place, a perfect host : it's all you need to enjoy your trip in London. Thank again William !

  • Our first experience with Airbnb was very nice. Both the room and bathroom were spotless clean. The bathroom is an enormous size and the bedroom is a reasonable size for two people. The area is very quiet so after a long day and evening in the city, one can count on a good night sleep. The location is great. Close to the tube and some main attractions. William and Phil are great hosts. Very helpfull and kind. No question was too difficult for them :-). Milly, the pug, sure knows how to get attention and we loved her. All in all a great stay and a real gem in the heart of London.

  • William was responsive to all my inquiries and provided all the information needed to get me there and around his neighborhood. We enjoyed our private room and bath that was clean and well supplied with tourist information. A bit of a walk from Elephant & Castle or Lambeth but neighborhood has great pubs and restaurants and is VERY quiet. The townhouse complex is lovely!

  • Très belle chambre dans un très beau quartier, à 5 minutes à pied du métro. Le lit est vraiment confortable et la salle de bain est propre et spacieuse. Nous avons passé une nuit chez William et malheureusement nous avons du partir plus tôt pour des raisons personnelles mais l'accueil de William a été parfait. N'hésitez pas à vous rendre chez lui!!!
