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).
ROOM - fully furnished with double bed, wardrobe, bedside tables, writing desk, free wireless access, floor to ceiling window.
BATHROOM - which is very large for London standards is modern designed and have a bath and power shower.
Available to use are: - Free Wireless internet access, a microwave, fridge, freezer, electrical oven and hob, washing/dryer machine.
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.

Absolutely amazing place to stay! Very warm and clean you'll feel like you're in a hotel. Fabio was very helpful in providing guides and maps, along with showing me around the unit when I got there. He was also very understanding when it came to me leaving early and coming home late from sightseeing. Transport was easy-5 minute walk to elephant and castle and 1 minute walk to bus line to London bridge. Would definitely stay again!
Was really nice going to visit Fabio and Miguel
Apart from being so convenient for those who work in London Bridge it was as going to visit some old friends.
The hosts are so nice and they even came for picking me up when I couldn't find his house. Very nice house and it's so quiet that you can sleep very well! The house is very nearby the underground station that you can go anywhere that you want to go conveniently. Will use their house again if I go to London next time! Really good memories with Miguel and Fabio there! Thanks a lot! It's amazing!
Once again I was made to feel very welcome. The room and bathroom are immaculate and clean, and facilities are excellent. Its just a 20 minute walk to Houses of Parliament, London Eye, and other sights.
Plus its very good value for money.
My husband and I stayed one week at Miguel and Fabio's very lovely decorated flat and we felt very welcomed and home away from home. We enjoyed our en suite bedroom with a comfy bed, enough closet space and towels, which were provided. Miguel and Fabio were very helpful by answering patiently all our questions regarding London's sights and how to get around and even helped us with booking and printing our boarding tickets on our last day. Although breakfast was not included in our booking, they nicely set the table for us every morning. We can highly recommend this beautiful flat. It was our first experience with airbnb and it was a great one.
Fabio and Miguel, thank you again for everything! We very much enjoyed staying with you!
All the best,
Rita & Klaus
I had sent a message to my hosts that I would be arriving at 1pm. My hosts commented that I might get lost, but I replied that I am very good with directions so it wouldn't be a problem. On arrival, no one was home. I waited about 20 minutes in the cold outside getting more and more worried and trying frantically to send my hosts a message. When my host finally arrived, he commented that "we are all business people" and didn't understand why I was so upset. Although things did not start off great, I tried to be courteous during my stay. It was difficult though, when at 7am every morning their extremely LOUD cuckoo clock woke me up. The walls at this place are very, very thin; you can hear everything and this clock rings like crazy every hour so if you want to sleep in, tough luck. The pillows are the worst that I have ever used, and the towels they gave me felt AND smelled like old rags. Finally, I noticed nail clippings on the bed which were clearly not my own. It was so gross. I'm not sure if the people that left earlier reviews have lower standards than me, but this entire experience has left me never wanting to stay at another Airbnb. I totally regret paying for my stay at this place.
Lovely apartment, very nice room and great hosts. It is a quiet area but only a few minutes to local transport. Fabio & Miguel - thanks for allowing me stay at your place
