Elephant and Castle is undergoing a £57 Billion regeneration, which is already well underway. The area is transforming and will be completed by 2025 with new skyscrapers and a new leisure center, shopping center, new green open spaces. It's very exciting to watch daily the transition.
Elephant and Castle has a tube station 2 minute walk from the apartment building that services the Northern Line and the Bakerloo Line. It is extremely quick to get anywhere you need to go in London. It also has a mainline station that is very convenient for getting to all the main London hubs.

Chris made us very welcome and had a tray of goodies for us on arrival. The flat is lovely, like the pictures and in an ideal location for central London. Chris was always prompt in replying and gave great advice and answered any questions. We had a great time and would definitely recommend!
Chris is a great host! Fast responses to my queries within few minutes. He provided me useful and accurate information on the apartment! Apartment is clean and cosy, few minutes walk from tube to the apartment. Friendly neighbours and safety personnels.

Staying at Chris apartment was a very nice experience. The place is brand new but also cosy thanks to a trendy decoration. Chris kindly left some goodies as well as flowers for us so we felt home from the moment we entered the apartment. There is a 24/7 reception desk which made it easy to collect the keys. Strata Tower is next to Elephant & Castle tube station so it is very practical. The Long Wave bar in front of the tower is perfect for a coffee in the morning. I definitely recommend that place.
A very pleasant stay, definitely up to the expectations set by the amazing reviews and recommended to anyone who wants to spend a weekend in zone 1 in London.
A bag of goodies and a welcome message started my experience at Chris's. The apartment is nice, tidy, very clean, tastefully decorated and comfortable. The concierge that handed over the keys allowed for an easily manageable late arrival.
2 minutes walk from the tube station with easy access to virtually anywhere and a couple of closeby take-aways and pubs for a cozy and relaxing evening at home.
Ich war mit 3 Freunden vom (phone number hidden) in London.
Für diese Tage haben wir Chris Wohnung gemietet.....
Die Wohnung ist sauber,gemütlich und übersichtlich.
Der Ausblick aus den Fenstern ist der reinste Wahnsinn!!!!!!
Aber was soll man auch anderes erwarten wenn man im 18 Stock wohnt ;) :)???
Es war wirklich toll und wenn man so wie wir im Sommer hinreist,braucht man nur die Fenster im Schlafzimmer und Wohnzimmer öffnen und schon hat man die Erfrischung.Zu der Zeit war es sehr heiß in London aber in der Wohnung wars nicht zu (website hidden) war angenehm :)!
Chris hatte für uns eine süße Botschaft und Kuchen da gerlassen.Wirklich sehr nett von ihm....auch Flyer und eine Karte von London war zu (website hidden) konnten wir immer gucken wo wir hin möchten oder was wir Abends machen werden dank der Flyer (Disco,Bars etc).Es war einfach ein Traum dort!!!Wir würden es immer wieder so machen....einfach genial und die Wohnung ist sowieso toll!!!Sie ist nicht unbeding riesengroß aber auch nicht klein.Chris scheint ein sehr netter Mann zu sein!Er hat uns in den Emails,in den Tagen davor,alles sehr genau beschrieben und uns sogar seine Nummer gegeben damit wir ihn anrufen können.
IMMER WIEDER GERNE UND VIELEN VIELEN DANK DAFÜR :) :)!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Chris, war sehr zuvorkommend und im Email-Verkehr gab er umgehend Tipps zu seiner Wohnung im 18 (!) Stock und zu London.
Die Wohnung ist wunderbar. Im Hochsommer könnte es ein wenig heiss werden, da keine Kühlung vorhanden ist. Man kann aber die Fenster ein öffnen, so dass die Wohnung nachts schnell abkühlt.
Als wir angekommen waren, lag ein Korb mit leckeren Lebensmitteln und einer Flasche Wein bereit.
Der Aufenthalt in diesem Loft ist sehr zu empfehlen.
The host was very friendly. He sent a welcome letter and very precise instructions. The neighbourhood is clean and safe, close to the Tube station with good connection to the city centre.
The apartment is in a contemporary residential tower, very nice furnished, clean and quiet. Not very big but roomy and convenient also for 4 guests. We were very satisfied.
About the Host, Chris
Hi, I'm Chris, I am a 40 year old Creative Director for a small company creating digital service solutions to some of the worlds biggest companies (think websites and much more!)
I originate from East London and love London! It is a great city and always so much to do and explore. I have lived in south East London next to the river Thames for the last 15 years and took the opportunity to move into the Strata Tower when it was opened to the public on completion 3 years ago. It is a great building, secure and the area is currently going through a million pound regeneration, so am excited to see the local area changing and being cleaned up. Will be very impressive when it completes in 2021!
I do not often use my apartment at weekends and so thought Airbnb would be a great opportunity to let others stay in London's newest landmark!
With the River and all it has to offer by way of attractions, pubs, bars and restaurants it is an amazing place to live and stay.
I am very clean and tidy by nature, and hope that if you choose to stay in Strata you will find it a very pleasent experience and environment.
Please get in touch if you have any questions!
