About This Listing
Hello, we are 2 professionals guys in interiors and fashion and we are inviting guests to stay in one of our DOUBLE BEDROOM with PRIVATE BATHROOM in our amazing new flat (which is 2 years old).

It is fully stocked with a cookware, crockery, glassware, etc.
We provide bed linen, towels and shower gel.
Although smoking are not allowed, we do have a balcony where you can do so. Pets are not allowed too (but we love them).
We live in the Kennington (zone 1) neighbourhood, south of river Thames, in a very green and clean area, next to the Imperial War Museum and walking distance to city centre.
The river banks, Big Ben and the London Eye lie within walking distance (actually you can see London Eye from our street, and at night because there is no traffic in our road, you can hear the Big Ben striking the hours... just amazing)
We are more than happy to meet you at the nearby tube station (Kennington or Elephant Castle) when you first arrive.
Several parks are nearby (Kennington Park and Imperial War Museum Park). There are several very good restaurants and pubs/bars (award winning The Tommyfield pub is down the street), a big grocery store (Tesco) is a 5 min walk away.
Lots of easy, great transport links with 8 direct buses taking you to the heart of London within 5-15 minutes. (10minutes to Charing Cross, Trafalgar Square and Westminster,15minutes to Regent Street, Oxford Street and Piccadilly Circus). Oval (Northern Line) and Vauxhall (Victoria Line) Tube , and Vauxhall Train Stations are 5 minutes away on foot with 3 London cycle hire docking stations within 3 minutes of the apartment for hire at 1pound a day.
We love our flat. Its located in a new development which use to be the Old Water Tower complex. Because is in a cul-de-sac, there is no traffic going through. Anytime of the day is heaven with no noise.
Because we both like style, we have decorated the place very contemporary for urban lovers, but always keeping in mind, we live in a cosy space. We made the place to be a home away from home. This is were you want to stay in London, seriously... See you soon.

Fabio and Miguel were perfect hosts and extremely friendly young men. The room itself, though not particularly large, was well-equipped and the spacious bathroom had an excellent power shower and deep bathtub. The bed was very comfortable and the bedlinen of a very high quality. The wifi reception was very good. The Elephant & Castle area may not appeal to everyone, but the two tube stations are at a short walking distance from where all major London sights can be reached within minutes. I can highly recommend this flat!
Miguel made me feel completely welcome and at ease. As my first airbnb experience this was perfect! The neighbourhood was quiet and a short walk from Kennington tube station (northern line) so ideal for getting around. The room was nice and clean and hair straighteners and wifi provided. Miguel was welcoming but not intrusive and always on hand to answer any questions. The apartment is modern and nicely kept. Guests make full use of their own bathroom with bath and shower during the stay as hosts use their own. Accurate description and genuinely good find. I'd recommend this place. As a female travelling alone this was perfect!
Fabio is very nice, good host! The apartment are very very clean, about 10 mins walk to Kennington subway station, also not far from to The Big Ben, about 25 mins walk can get there, also there are buses around to reach there. I like the the decoration of the apartment very much, Fabio must pay lots of time to do that. You can also use the kitchen. Just one little disadvantage, the room is not very big.
Fabio & Miguel's flat is located at the centre of the city which is very close to tube and bus stations. But you may prefer to walk to westminster in only 10 minutes. Flat is clean, modernly furnished and decorated. Your privacy is respected. Maps, guides, towels, bath gels, even plug convertors are provided which makes you feel that you are staying in a comfy hotel. Most of all, hosts are quite warm blooded and helpful so it feels like you are with your close friends. Miguel did not hesitate to pick us near the station. We celebrated my gf's birthday (also the day i proposed marriage :)) and miguel was as excited as i was. I definitely recommend visitors to pick Fabio & Miguel's flat. Great value for that price.
