About this listing

Hi guys, calendar update: I just got a new bathroom since April, just in time for Easter 2017. So tiled flooring, new wc and new vanity and sink.
Normally the flat is free from Friday evenings till Monday evenings. The rest of the flat has been freshly painted.

The space

If you are looking for the most central room for 2 adults sharing a UK king size bed, look no further:

The flat is perfect for a couple or 2 friends who share a king size bed.

The living room and kitchen have been freshly painted, including the timberwork so take care:) .

The bathroom will be renewed and works fine although it is a bit old. I will get new bathroom fittings soon but timing is to be confirmed. The shower on the bath is brandnew and gorgeous!

The table has moved so its out of the way from the bed: the table is now where you see the sheep on the picture. this way the table can be used by 2 people more easily whilst the bed is down.
The bed will be in a down position and all made up & ready for you when you arrive.
Towels will be on the window sill in the bathroom.
Soap will be on the sink.
Shampoo and soap will be in the bath.

The building is near the river Thames, at Lambeth Bridge, which is next to Westminster Bridge: a short walk to Big Ben.

Things to see within walking distance:
-Parliament square & Big Ben & Westminster Abbey: down the street.
-James's Park is on the other side of Parliament Square.
-Buckingham Palace is a short walk away, behind St James's Park.
-London Eye is just across Westminster Bridge (at Big Ben), 20min
-The National Gallery and the museums at Trafalgar Square are in walking distance, at approximately another 15min from Parliament Square.
-Tate Britain is 5 minutes down the street in the other direction.

-There is a bus stop in front of the building that takes you direct to Parliament Sq, Trafalgar Square, Picadilly Circus and Oxford Street, what more would you like…There is an app called Citymapper which you can download on my wifi to check bus arrivels (every 10min).

If you like walking you can get to most places from here within an hour’s walk.

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.

So..in summary:

Looking for a great hotel room at good value but a better accommodation in a very safe and central area? Here it is:
-lots of daylight and sunshine, black out curtains,
-kitchen,
-bathroom with large bath and
-a king size bed.
-oak floors
(make yourself at home and take of shoes please, no heels and no suitcases scratching floor/leather furniture)

Please observe:
-no high heels, the oak floor is quite new
-no kids or babies: the building and neighbours won't appreciate this and we have to respect their potential issues with noise.
-not more than 2 guests, it is a very quiet building.

I have lovely nice and quiet neighbours and I would certainly like to respect this so my preference is to have a quiet couple staying.

Guest access

Wifi
Hair dryer
The shower has low pressure at the moment as the cold water pressure is low. So hot showers are possible(but I like them not too hot hence the lower water pressure).

The shower is meant to be fixed Feb/March 2017 but the builder needs to confirm dates. All bathroom fittings will be renewed.

Interaction with guests

I am always available on /email/phone during your stay if you have any questions about my flat or about what to see in London/best tips etc

This place is in a great location for exploring London, as well as being just off the beaten path of the tourist areas, so you are able to get a local feel. It was perfect for my wife and I for the few nights we spent in London. Esther was easy to communicate with and quite accommodating.

Was staying at Esther's place for the weekend, and from the very beginning Esther was very communicative, friendly and responsive. This continued upon arrival, as she gave some really good suggestions and advices regarding places to eat, drink or even the best spot close by to do some photo shots of the marathon runners! Everything from booking and check-in to check-out was relaxed and fuss-free. The area around the apartment is calm, quiet and the building itself is safe and well mantained. From Victoria Station (easy connection to Gatwick) I needed 17 min when arriving, with some searching. When leaving, 12 min were counted, easy walk. Places to eat, or buy food are close by, just ask Esther. Even if London is full of landmarks and worth walking, busses are stopping a few steps from the main building. Tube options in the range of 10-15 min. The apartment, being perfect for one or two persons, is clean, quiet, bright with recently renovated bathroom, and offers everything you need especially for a short stay. Overall a very positive experience for London and Esther's place will definitely remain on my wish-list.

Cozy apt, walking distance to the river and attractions, yet very quiet neighborhood. Esther was very informative with the direction and neighborhood facilities. Room is small but not a bit problem with me. 15 mins walk to the Underground, which should be noted for someone with luggage. Bus is convenient though.

It was a good location, not far from the Big Ben which is advertised. Photos looked great compared to when I actually arrived. The place is a bit small and compact which was very unexpected. Bathroom wasn't clean but cleaning supplies was available. Esther had great communication, answered any and all questions in a timely manner. Esther even gave advise to help adjust to a foreign style

Esther is really kind, we couldn't meet due to travel, but she always give contact and support by mobile giving all the information needed. Neighborhood is really relax, perfect to sleep in the night, and 7 minutes walking to Big Ben and 5 minutes to the tube Pimlico House enough for a pair with all the elements needed to be a perfect holidays.
