Good sized double room right in the heart of London near many of its best tourist attractions. We've owned this house for years, and hosted hundreds of happy Airbnb guests so we know the area and how to help people get the best from it. Get in touch!
We've been hosting on here for three years. We don't live at the property right now so all three bedrooms are rented (the bathroom is shared). We have now had hundreds of guests come through our doors, we also travel regularly using Airbnb. Between those two things we have a really good feel for what people are looking for when staying here and using Airbnb.
We're splitting our time between travelling and staying elsewhere in London and the UK for a while due to work and other commitments, but we're still very much involved in the house. When we can provide access two of our trusted local friends help out.
We know the area and London very well and provide a full written guide to our guests but are also very happy to help with information by phone, email or What's App about eating, drinking, sightseeing and anything else we can.
We appreciate one of the things people like is a bit of local knowledge when staying in Airbnb so do our best to provide this with the guides and contact mentioned above, however we have also dropped the price to reflect that we are no longer in the house, so for the area it is an even bigger bargain.
This is a good sized double room in a period mansion block, one minute from Waterloo train station. We have renovated it over the last three years to a high standard, retaining all its original character - this isn't a hotel room, it's a guest room in our house.
The room has a good size double bed and good hanging/drawer space, recently decorated with stripped wood floors and plenty of space for luggage etc. In the rest of the flat we have a communal living room with cable and an LCD TV as well as very high speed broadband throughout the flat. The kitchen is new, finished recently with high spec units, Italian tiles and top spec appliances like a Bosch dishwasher and Miele washing machine. The bathroom is small but perfectly formed with a powerful rain shower. There is a separate toilet. The bathroom and toilet are shared.
The real highlight of the flat though is the location, which is quite frankly amazing and the main reason we chose to live here. For transport it is 30 secs from Waterloo train station. Basically, getting anywhere in London is within easy reach on the tube/bus etc.
It is walking distance (under 15 mins) to the Southbank (Tate Modern, BFI, Hayward etc), Covent Garden, The House of Parliament, Big Ben, The London Eye, Tower of London, St Pauls and many more attractions. Closer still (1 min) Lower Marsh market is emerging as one of London's cutest little markets with international street food stalls and a weekly produce market.
The rate includes a nice, simple continental style breakfast which you help yourself to in the morning. Bagels, preserves, cereals, juice, tea and coffee that kind of thing.
The flat is on the third floor so a few easy steps are necessary, unfortunately this means no disabled access is possible.
Parking can be arranged for an extra fee (it costs us money to buy it).
Check in is best after 4pm but please contact us if this is an issue with your travel plans.
We provide a printed guide in your room on arrival, created by us exclusively for our guests.
We only ask that guests act like normal human beings and respect the house, common sense stuff.
nous venons de passer 3 bons jours sur Londres. Chambre extra, très propre, charmant accueil par Diana. Chambre très bien située, calme, à 5 mns à pieds de Waterloo, d'où nous avons pu prendre différentes lignes de métro et de bus. 20mns à pieds de Coven garden et des différents sites touristiques, nous y retournerons avec grand plaisir!

We really enjoyed our stay here. Diana made us feel very welcome and was exceedingly helpful throughout our stay. Location within London is great with a good range of supermarkets and attractions within walking distance, and Tube access to the rest of London within a few minutes walk. The flat is fairly limited for space but there is a communal living room with dining table, TV etc. - given the central location and the competitive pricing I don't think you could ask for much more. Would stay again.
We had an amazing stay at Theo & Danielle's place. The flat is perfectly located, close to all the major site in London, though in a quiet area. Theo & Danielle shared some very insightful tips about things to do around.
We definitely recommend!
I spent 2 nights at Theo&Danielle's apartment, and had the opportunity to meet the lovely couple who lives there, Diana and Carlos, who are absolutely lovely people and whom I had the chance to spend some time with and chat. They were really nice to me: thank you so much guys!
The apartment is perfectly located (with a view of the London Eye, for the enthusiasts :) ), literally 2 minutes walking from Waterloo station, in a safe area and nice neighbourood. It is decorated in a very practical yet tasteful way. The room was cosy, super clean, with plenty of space to put your stuff. Everything was perfect!
I will definitely go back and already suggested it to some people!
See you soon!
My girlfriend and I had a fantastic time during the 3 nights we spent at Theo & Danielle's! The room was very comfortable and fit the 2 of us plus all our stuff easily. We didn't have a chance to meet Theo & Danielle, but Carlos and Diana, the couple who live in the flat, were great hosts- very friendly and welcoming. They gave us some local insight on places to go while exploring the city. The location is as described (you can see the eye right from the front door), it is very central and allowed us to head out each day in a different direction, which was great for us (it was our first time in London). The neighborhood has plenty of transportation option as well as food and pubs.
It was my first Airbnb and my first London experience. I can only recommend that place. The flat and room were very cozy (as described) and the location so central. We got lots of good hints where to go and just felt at home when we had late breakfast every day. We didn't get to know Theo and Danielle but her friend Diana did a very good job as a host. Very nice and helpful communication before the trip and the same during our stay. The next time I am London I already know where to stay.

We used Airbnb all over the world and had great experiences. We've decided to rent out our flat over the summer to give us some flexibility while we settle back in and a bit of extra cash. (We don't live at the flat at the moment but we are there lots during the week) We feel that after all the travelling we have just done we are in a great place to be able to know what people will want from a visit to London.
Both of us love music and much of our lives revolve around it. We've lived in London for a few years and know the area where the flat is really well, its a great place to be.
