London Bridge Station is both an underground (tube) and overground station that provides excellent access to London. It is on the Jubilee Line which is the only line to connect to all others. Very convenient.
Other Things to Note
It is with regret that we cannot accommodate more than two people, even if you have small children.
We can book any restaurant ahead of your stay as they get booked up quickly, especially at the weekend.
There are 'Boris bikes' around the corner from the apartment, which are a great and cost effective way to travel around.
We are pretty relaxed, but we try to avoid wearing shoes upstairs as the area is carpeted.
Please set the alarm when leaving the flat if no-one is in.
Smoking is prohibited in the flat, but you can smoke outside of the front door.
The reservation was canceled 14 days before arrival. This is an automated posting.
The stay with Claire was the best and nicest airbnb experience we've ever had! She is the born host and you really feel at home in the comfortable and clean apartment. The room is perfect for two people and she offers a lot of additional amenities, including e.g. breakfast and tea in the room. We had lovely chats with Claire and she was extremely flexible, helpful and forthcoming with recommendations and our travel conditions.
The area around the place is quiet, safe and perfect as well if you want a nice dinner, brunch or some drinks just 5 mins away.
I've already recommended her place to all of my friends!
Ce voyage en Angleterre, à Londres, a pu atteindre sa perfection grâce à la gentillesse et au professionnalisme de Claire. L'appartement et la chambre sont absolument similaires aux photos qui donnent déjà un très large avant goût de la qualité du séjour. Je remercie encore Claire pour ce si chaleureux accueil. À réserver sans modération !!!
Claire is a wonderful host and I enjoyed my stay with her SOOO much! It was lovely to meet her partner, Stuart, too. We shared great time talking about HK and everything in the breakfast table. Claire is such a sweet and cheerful girl that everyone would love to stay with.
Claire's place is exactly as described, the room i stayed was very comfortable, neat and tidy, i felt like home when i stay there.
Thank you so much Claire!!
I would recommend everyone to stay here if you visit London.
We stayed for 4 nights at Claire's Flat. Claire welcomed us with a cup of coffee and some cookies and we had a very nice first chat. The flat was clean and nice. The bedroom was tastefully furnished with a good mattress and breakfast, towels, bathrobes, hairdryer, umbrella, London maps and other helpful written information was provided. The tube is a 10 minutes walk away. The neighbourhood was very quiet and we did feel safe even when walking home at midnight. Whenever we needed some information Claire was ready to help us. In summary, we can say that Claire is a very friendly host, the information about the flat are correct and we would definitely recommend staying at this flat.
Claire made us feel very welcome, she provided us with lots of information and advice. We really enjoyed our 3 day visit, it was home from home. Bermondsey is a great area to stay in, lots of independent restaurants, cafes etc and very close to Southbank and convenient for tubes.
We will definitely return and highly recommend staying with Claire.
Claire is fantastic host with lovely attention to her hosts. The flat is charming and well located , in a great area of previous factories renovated with Industrial furnitures and charming restaurants.
My name is Claire and I am 33 years old.
I am a singer-songwriter and I co-write and perform with my brother, Nick. We are currently working with a producer to release an EP this year.
I thoroughly enjoy hosting people from all over the world through airbnb and met some long lasting friends over this past year. I will look forward to meeting more people in 2015!
