This listing is for a loft style flat in central London - Zone 1. Closest tube station is Southwark (Jubilee line) -3 min walk.
The flat is spacious and light with one large semi- open space and a separate bedroom. The flat is 2 bedroom, however the part of the wall was removed between second bedroom and lounge area to increase sense of space and light. The flat has a balcony with fantastic city views. Wooden floors throughout, Airport, wireless internet, TV.
There is a bedroom with double bed facing east with views towards Shard -tallest building in London and the other bedroom - facing west- is conjoined with a living area and kitchen to maximize the space and light. Therefore the current layout would suit 2 people sharing the bedroom, however there is enough space to accommodate more people using the sofa in the 2nd room. I also have room screens to create your own layout.
Location is great, 5 min walk to Tate Modern, close to Waterloo, Bankside, London Bridge and Borough market. Museums, galleries, coffee shops (Monmouth is my favorite), cinema - British film institute, theater -Old and Young Vic as well as National theater, independent bookshops, food markets, Borough market on thursday, fridays and Saturdays. you name it, abundance of cultural venues. And i can give you tips where to go and what to see.
Barclays bikes are just around the corner and available for £2 a day or weekly membership. 15 min cycling to Covent Garden, Soho, 20 min to Clerkenwell and shoreditch.
You can get a daily, weekly or monthly membership at the local gym - Bankside Gym.
I also let out a room within the apartment when I am there, so please see my other listing if you are looking for just one room.
Please note the flat is on 4th floor and there is no lift.
Please ask if you have any additional questions
We really enjoyed our stay in Nina's apartment! The flat is in a great and convenient location in trendy Southwark, has a lovely view of the London Eye, and was a quiet and calm oasis in the middle of the city. I would highly recommend to others. The only downside was having to carry my rather heavy suitcase up and down the stairs but as long as you are up for it not a big issue.
Great flat, close to the London's South Bank. I really enjoyed the simplicity of the interior design and great views from the balcony. Nina was professional and organized. A great trip overall. Be aware that the flat is on the top floor of a five story building without a lift, so there's a substantial climb whenever you come back.
I had an amazing trip to London. Nina was an incredible host. Amazing views and very open space. Neighborhood was perfect walking distance from everything. I would recommend this flat to anyone.
Nina's place was very comfortable. We enjoyed our stay there. The location was excellent. It's just a few minute walk to the Southwark station which can get you to any other spots in London quickly. We walked to great nearby places like the Globe Theatre, Borough Market, and Gabriel's Wharf. There's also a Tesco grocery right down the street which is very convenient.
The flat is located on the top floor of the building with no elevator which may be an issue for some. The apartment also can be a little noisy from the above ground train that runs by. Only really noticeable when the sliding door is left open.
Overall, we were happy with our stay there. The location was very convenient. Nina was kind but does insist on stopping by each day to grab belongings or take care of things during the afternoon. It wasn't a big deal for us since we were out exploring during the day anyway. It was a comfortable stay and we were happy to get to explore the Southwark area. Cool place to stay.
great central location. The apartment was close to a supermarket, tube station and great pubs. Waking distance to Tate modern.
The apartment itself was a good size and lots of natural light. Nina, the host was meticulous in orientating me to the place. Really enjoyed the kitchen
Nina kindly took a really last minute booking to accommodate some friends that couldn't stay with me. Her flat is beautiful and well located. She was really flexible and helpful about check in. Highly recommended! Thanks Nina.
Appartement très très bien placé et lumineux mais situé au 4e étage sans ascenseur. 90 marches à grimper avec les valises...
Une seule chambre calme et spacieuse (pas deux comme indiqué) tandis que le salon/cuisine est lumineux mais bruyant à cause du passage très très régulier des métros de la Jubilee line juste sous le balcon et et les fenêtres. Pas de rideau à la baie vitrée du salon. Gros vis à vis surtout le soir, lumière allumée, avec les métros et voisins d'en face. Parquet grinçant et ventilation SDB très bruyante.
Gros inconvénient: la personne qui loue l'appartement où elle réside a du mal à s'organiser pour trouver un logement alternatif et y prendre ses affaires. Elle a dû repasser plusieurs fois pendant notre séjour récupérer ses affaires. Dont une fois, à l'improviste un dimanche matin! Inacceptable selon nous.
