If you are looking for the most central room for 2 adults sharing a UK king size bed, look no further: however, the flat is only available from Thursday evening till Monday morning.
This flat is near the river Thames, at Lambeth Bridge, which is next to Westminster Bridge: literally a 5min walk to Big Ben.
-It is a 5 min walk to Parliament Square where you have Westminster Abbey and the Houses of Parliament with the Big (website hidden) James's Park is on the other side of the square and just accross Westminster Bridge you have the London Eye.
-Tate Britain is down the street in the other direction and the museums at Trafalgar Square are in walking distance, 15min from Parliament Square.
-Buckingham Palace is a short walk away, behind St James's Park.
-There is a bus stop in front of the building that takes you direct to Parliament Sq,
Picadilly Circus and
Oxford Street, what more would you want..
If you like walking you can get to most places from here within an hours walk.
With regards to length of stay, please just drop me an email and I can give you more information on location and things in the area as well.
Bed: 1 bed, 2 adults only:
There is one king size bed (the couch is not a bed) and therefore the flat is suitable for a single person or couple.
Looking for a great hotel room at good value but a better accommodation?
Modern refurbished large studio of 39sqm with

-bathroom with large bath and
-a king size bed.
(make yourself at home and take of shoes please, no heels and no suitcases scratching floor/leater furniture)
-no high heels, the oak floor is quite new

-not more than 2 guests, it is a very quiet building with more elderly people than young people.
It is a very safe and secure area.
Facilities include 24 Hour Porter and security. The building is known for its security and I would certainly like to respect this so my preference is to have a quiet couple staying, without children.
smoking: just keep balcony doors open.
No sigars or cooking of fish please. That smell stays for days.
The building is known for its security and privacy. The porters keep an eye on everyting so behave, you're on candid camera. Neighbors are very quiet.

Kitchen: oven, microwave, induction hob, fridge: use it all and leave it as you found it. keep worktop dry please, just use the blue cloth.
Bath: its massive. The shower is strong and hot: open cold fully, hot a little.
Esther is an easy, warm and very helpful host. The place is perfect to explore London. We can't wait to get back.
Esther is the perfect host, she had great tips (how to get from and to the airports, where to have great English breakfasts, etc.) and her little but cosy apartment is perfectly located. It is very easy to explore London and to bring shopping bags home before another round :-)
Esther was a great host and the flat was very clean and comfortable. It's in a great location for exploring London and Esther provided us with some great tips on places to visit and how to get around the city. I would definitely stay here next time I return to London. Thanks Esther!
Esther made us feel very welcome, the flat was immaculate and very pleasant. The neighbourhood is very quiet and perfectly situated for a stay in Central London. We would certainly recommend seeing if this is free for your stay, we would love to stay again.
Absolutely great place to stay. Ester welcomed my very friendly and the stay was great. The location is truly as described, 5 mins from Big Ben. Also the neighborhood is more then secure. The building is superb and i would stay there any time again. Ester really went out of her way to explain everything and i even found a hand drawn map that she did for me. In these days of fb and twitter something homemade like that really kicks it. Vielen Dank dafür! Also i did now want to forget to mention, that the place was really spotless. Absolutely well kept and the bed linnen was high class, not ur cheap stuff from penny. If you love a nice bed cover and blanqet like i do, Esters place is the right one for you. Recommended!
I am a young professional, who managed to drag herself onto the property ladder! And in order to fund this super central location I am very happy to sometimes share it with others wilst I am away.
