Charming double near the Thames

Apartment - Private room · Sancroft Street, Greater London, SE11 5UG, United Kingdom

A light and airy double room, in a lovely flat that’s full of character. The street is quiet and leafy but you’re really close to central London. Excellent transport connections.

The Space

The flat was built a century ago and feels very English. The guest bedroom has big windows looking out onto other period buildings and gardens.

As well as the lounge with lots of books and music, there’s a lovely dining room for breakfast and meals you have at home. I hope you’ll find it a relaxing and welcoming place to stay.

Guest Access

As well as your private bedroom, you are welcome to use the bathroom, kitchen, dining room and lounge. There’s plenty of space. This is my home so I may also be around, but no one else will be staying.

There’s a well-equipped kitchen, a washing machine and wi-fi. I’ll provide local information, tea, coffee, towels and bed linen.

Interaction with Guests

My name is Roger. I'm English, well-travelled and open-minded. In their reviews Airbnb guests often say that I am welcoming, polite and helpful. I’ll make sure you have all the information you need on the local neighbourhood and getting around the city.

The Neighborhood

The flat is in Kennington, ten minutes walk away from the river Thames, with Big Ben, the London Eye, the South Bank, Tate Modern and Borough Market within easy reach.

It’s a calm and restful residential area, just a few minutes away from the heart of the city. There are several pubs, cafes, restaurants and supermarkets within a five minute walk.

Getting around

You’re close to Kennington (8 minutes) and Vauxhall (12 minutes) tube stations, as well as several convenient bus routes (2 minutes).

As you’ll be less than two miles from Covent Garden, Soho, Buckingham Palace, Sloane Square and Battersea Power Station you might decide to walk or use London’s cycle hire scheme - there are two docking stations in the street.

Overall Guest Satisfaction

Check In
  • I stayed with a friend for 3 days and I can highly recommend Roger's flat: it is central, clean and tastefully furnished. He is a great host: friendly, respectful and he provided us with lots of material and useful maps. We really felt at home and enjoyed our stay in London. I'd be happy to stay there again the next time I'm in London.

  • Roger's flat is excellent. Good location, near to lots of services and close to the centre of London. Highly recommend.

    L'appartement de Roger est excellent. Bon emplacement, à proximité de nombreux services et à proximité du centre de Londres. Je le recommande vivement.

  • We thoroughly enjoyed our stay in London, thanks in no small part to our stay at Rogers' flat. Extremely clean, spacious, and a great location. We would definitely recommend this place to others.

  • It was such a treat to stay at Roger's place! It is centrally located, restful and calming, and his well-prepared information packets were the perfect prep to a gorgeous time in the city.
    He is a gracious and helpful host who has created an open, warm atmosphere (and book-lover's wonderland)! A great place to stay!

  • Perfecto! Roger fue muy amable y compartimos con el varias cenas y charlas. El departamento es hermoso y esta ubicado en una zona accesible y muy londinense.
    La habitación muy cómoda.
    Nos olvidamos algo en la casa de Roger, y el tuvo la amabilidad de encontrarse con nosotros en París (coincidimos un fin de semana) para devolvérnoslo. Genial!!!
    Volveríamos a su casa sin dudarlo!!

  • We had a great time at Roger's!
    The place is comfortable, clean and quite central - 5 minute walk to the tube and 10 minutes to Big Ben, London Eye etc.
    Roger was a great host and very respectful. When we arrived he had a map, information on the area and was informative on London.
    100% RECOMMENDED! =)

  • I had a great stay at Roger's flat. A perfect location just far enough from all the hustle and bustle of central London but still easy to get to the Underground and buses and be anywhere within a very short time.

    Roger was an excellent host offering tips on the local neighborhood as well as greater London. His flat is spacious and very clean. I'd be happy to stay there again the next time I'm in London.

    February 2014
  • We only spoke Roger very briefly when he left for the weekend but he was very friendly and helpful. He gave us a little map, tips on where to eat and drink in his neighbourhood, tube and bus-lines to take, etc.
    The flat is clean and well located. Not far from the tube and there's a bus-stop just on the corner. You can get to the center of London very quickly and easily.
    We stayed for 3days/2nights and would definitely recommend his place.

I'm English, well-travelled and open-minded. A few things I like: having people to stay, getting excited about new music, my job with an HIV charity, weekends away, food and cooking... Je parle couramment le français. Hablo un poco de español.
