We've been hosting on here for two years now and 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 with us and using Airbnb. We love meeting people from around the world and welcoming them to our home, a quick read through the feedback paints the picture for you.
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 very high standard, retaining all its original character.
The room has a good size double bed, wardrobe and drawers, 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 (120meg+) 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 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 and many more attractions. Closer still (1 min) Lower Marsh market is emerging as one of London's cutest little markets with over ten international street food stalls.
We know the area and London very well and provide a written guide to our guests but will be very happy to help with information about eating, drinking, sightseeing and anything else we can.
We have a total of two rooms to let, we live in the third.
The rate includes a nice, simple continental style breakfast. 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).
The reservation was canceled 23 days before arrival. This is an automated posting.
I liked this place a lot. My room was clean and bright and the pad is located just a short walk from the Waterloo underground station, which was convenient.
Weekend trip to London
Lovely stay with Theo & Danielle. Clean apartment, with yummy breakfast included. I would recommend this apartment!
Great location, a few minutes away from the London Eye and Westminster with easy access to public transports
Surrounding area is safe and taken care of; it may get a little loud during the weekend nights and you will find empty bottles in the garden on Saturday and Sunday mornings.
The flat is nice and clean, you will find everything you need for breakfast and Theo has been very kind and helpful
My first airbnb experience has definitely been a very positive one, thanks Theo!
I spent my first AirBnB experience with Theo and Danielle, in a very nice apartment in the heart of London, indeed at a very walkable distance from both train and Underground stations. And despite those stations the apartment is more than quiet enough, to be able to get my rest at night after two very busy photography convention days! I only got to meet Theo and Danielle my last night in Londen, they had arranged for their neighbor Tina to let me in and hand me the keys. I can recommend the apartment without any hesitation!
Our first airBnB experience was a great one, thanks to Theo and Danielle. The apartment is great: tidy, quiet at night and situated so central, one doesn't even need the Tube to get to all city-landmarks.
We slept in a third, not pictured, bedroom. The room is big enough (it's London, why would one spend more than the night here?!), the bed very comfy. We were invited to use the living-room, the kitchen, to help ourselves to bread, bagels and everything in the fridge.
Complaints below, about the neighborhood/apartment being run down are completely nonsense. It's a normal apartment complex like you'll find it a hundred times in London. If that's not convenient enough for you, good look finding something around city of Westminster.
We absolutely loved it. Thanks so much to Theo and Dani!
Theo and Danielle are fine hosts. The apartment is lovely with a comfortable bed in a quiet room. The location is excellent, just minutes walk from the Southbank and London's great attractions. The neighbourhood is friendly. Rail and tube are nearby, together with nice restaurants, pubs and bars. Highly recommended!
Great experience! Very nice couple and beautiful room to sleep in. They gave us all we needed, all the food in the fridge was available and we had nothing about to worry about. Very close to Waterloo Station, London Eye and Big Ben. Safe neighborhood. We recommend it so much!
We had a 3 day wonderful stay at Theo's. We loved the area, there are a bunch of restaurants and pubs nearby. It's also very close to the Waterloo Tube station. We tried a few of the food recommendations and they were all wonderful. Theo's neighbor let us in when we arrived, but we got to meet Theo and Danielle the last night of our stay. Very nice and cool people. We would definitely stay here again.
