The Space

We have a single room in our bright 2 bed centrally located apartment within a gated development (Metro Central Heights) available. The apartment has one bathroom with bath and shower and an open plan living, dining room and kitchen.

You will have use of wifi, HD TV with 100s of channels, surround sound and blu-ray player. You can help yourself to tea and coffee and can use the cooker and microwave in the kitchen. Benefits in the complex include 24 hour concierge and resident's swimming pool, gym, jacuzzi and steam room, which are available for your use during your stay.

We are a couple; Roo is 33 years old and is an Engineer Manager and Zoe is 29 years old and is a Doctor! We enjoy an array of experiences including travelling and diving when work permits. In London, we enjoy the gym and swimming pool at home, going to the theatre, out to eat or for drinks with friends and sometimes just chilling out at home. Between us we speak English, Farsi, French, Spanish and Portuguese (some better than others!).

We enjoy chats and sharing knowledge and experience when time allows.

The apartment is located bang on the Elephant and Castle roundabout, moments away from the rail and tube stations (zone 1/2), 28 buses, Barclays bikes and local amenities including supermarkets and other shops/entertainment. You are located within very easy walking distance to Borough, London Bridge, Waterloo, Southwark and the City to name but a few. Local tourist interests include the Imperial War Museum, the Tate Modern, Ministry of Sound nightclub, Tower Bridge and Tower of London, Monument, London Eye, the Southbank, Royal Festival Hall, iMax cinema, Southbank centre, Houses of Parliament and many more... all are within walking distance.

Get in touch with any questions and we will get back to you quickly.

  • Great neighbourhood with a good range of interesting restaurants nearby. Amazingly convenient for getting to any part of Central London: I would leave the apartment and 15 minutes later I was walking up The Strand.

    The apartment is comfortable, bright and clean. The room is small but there is good cupboard and hanging space to put your things away. There's some traffic noise throughout the night, but no worse than most other places in Central London. I parked my motorcycle in the secure parking area, and felt happy knowing that it was completely safe.

    Zoe and Roo really welcomed me and made me feel very much at home. I don't think they could have done anything else to make my stay any better.

  • Die Unterkunft ist gut, sauber und liegt in zentraler Lage. Sie ist sehr gut mit öffentlichen Verkehrsmitteln zu erreichen (Tube, diverse Buslinien)!
    Ich wurde freundlich empfangen und mit hilfreichen Tipps für meinen Aufenthalt in London versorgt. Ganz toll!
    Zoe und Roo sind offen für ein gemeinsames Gläschen Wein am Abend und in jeder Hinsicht angenehme Gastgeberinnen.

    Response from Zoe And Roo:

    English Translation: The accommodation is good, clean and located in a central location. It is very easy to reach by public transport (tube, several bus lines)! I was greeted warmly and provided helpful tips for my stay in London. It's great! Zoe and Roo are open to a shared glass of wine in the evening and in every respect pleasant hostesses.

  • I stayed with Roo and Zoe in their London home for about a week and enjoyed my experience. The hosts are wonderful, warm, friendly and incredibly helpful when it comes to navigating the town. Roo himself welcomed me by showing me the market and buying beers so we could watch the world cup games!

    The apartment is in a gated community about a 15-20 minute walk directly south of the Tower Bridge/Tower of London. The room directly overlooks the bustling street below and the metro/tube/underground station is directly across the street. The underground station itself is the end of the line for one of the trains, so you'll have the train practically to yourself when you jaunt up to central London, which is only 4 stops (~10 mins).

    There is some street noise, being right above the street and all, so if you like white noise to get you ready to sleep, this will be right down your alley. Apart from that, there are many good places to eat on the cheap within a stone's throw of the apartment and the neighborhood itself is very diverse. It was nice not feeling too much like a tourist and being able to mingle with the locals. I would recommend staying with Roo and Zoe to anyone wanting to have a nice London experience.

  • I've spent a couple days at Zoe & Roo's home. It was exactly what I've expected. Hosts are friendly people. Tiny, but clean room. Lovely location, really convenient. Good value for money.

  • Everything is fine, it was good to stay there, except several things: hot water after 23.00 isn't work and at the end of day to take a shower is impossible. And quite noisy in the 7th mornings even at the closed window so it is necessary to get up early out of regardless when you went to bed (even if fall asleep late). As a place the apartment is very convenient. On accommodation you watch rules and it will be easier, the only thing, difficult to have breakfast at home: the refrigerator is not big. But in general it was really good))

    Response from Zoe And Roo:

    We're sorry to hear Mariya had a problem with taking a shower in the evenings which she didn't raise as an issue with us (and could have easily been resolved). The water is heated in a 210 litre tank and is more than ample for 3 people to use throughout the day for showering and other activities such as cooking/cleaning etc. When Mariya stayed with us she took 1 hour showers in the morning and 1 hour showers in the evening every day, so actually we're not surprised the hot water ran out just disappointed that a guest had an issue that she didn't raise with us.
    With regard to Mariya being unable to lie in on her 7th night, noise is a reality of being in such a well located apartment in the centre of London - if you're sensitive to noise consider ear plugs or somewhere further out.
    We do provide complimentary breakfast for guests and we're not sure why the size of the fridge stopped her from eating breakfast at home?!

  • Roo and Zoe were wonderful hosts. The location was perfect for access to the tube and rail. I hardly used my Oyster card since I was a able to walk everywhere. Definitely stay again!

  • Excellent Stay with Zoe and Roo. Very Very helpful couple who borrowed me their iron and helped me with directions around London. Definitely would recommend and come back to stay if I am back in London!

  • Nice flat! it has everything that you need. It's really close to the bus stop (all night service, really safe) and the Elephant & Castle station tube (Underground) up until 12.30am

    Zoe & Roo are relly kind and they can give you great tips for your stay! they have maps and they can give directions to everywhere, just ask them.

    My only recommendation is that when you arrive and if you have heavy bags with wheels ask at the tube for the way to the shopping mall ramps, the flat is located really close by to one the ramp so just look for it!

    PS: Ask to get a coconut chocolate from Roo, they are amazing!

  • Zoe and Roo are young and full of energy. Willing and able to give great advice on travels in the city. Location is quite central, easily reached from anywhere in the city.Access from Heathow is very direct and somewhat quick.

    May 2014
  • It was a good location, clean, and secure. I did not meet Zoe or Roo, but they left me information on the bed. The room is very small, but if you only plan to sleep and shower there, its perfect.
