We rent our guest-room in our new, modern and stylist 2 bedrooms apartment. We also live in this apartment and would love to welcome you and give you the best tips from this fantastic city.
This is a new building so it has all the facilities like 2 lifts and an special entrance for disables!
The location can't be better for transport, as we are in Zone 1, in the heart of the city "Central London". The tube and rail way stations are just on the next block and a wide option of buses go past just on the corner. From here you can go to everywhere in London and very quick! You can go to Victoria, the main station in London, in just 15 min by bus which is really good for those who need to save time. In fact for those who like to walk you can even do it to the Big Ben.
You can star your trip by looking into the area pictures: https://www.airbnb.co.uk/locations/london/walworth
This is a multicultural neighbourhood with all facilities and conveniences with plenty supermarkets, coffee shops, banks, cash points, etc.
All central London sights are reachable by bus which you can take just outside the building. That´s a great advantage because the tube fare is almost the double of the bus price!
Let's talk about your bedroom: It's cosy and with a super comfy king size bed perfect for a couple or for 2 people (everyone that has slept there says the same: what a great bed!). We bought the mattress very recently and yes, it's very comfortable for your back (it's not the cheap one). There is 1 bedside table and 1 bedside cabinet. There is also a desk and 2 very comfortable chairs and a TV to watch DVD's (I haven't install the British Channels as this is very expensive in London) but you can borrow a DVD from the collection on the entrance hall.
There is a wardrobe with hangers available so you will have plenty space for your clothes.
Bedlinen and towels are provided as well as a very reliable WiFi connection (Username & Password will be on the desk)
For a third guest I can add a single bed in the room but obviously that will cut space!
The bathrooms is very spacious, modern and as it's the only bathroom in the apartment so it would be shared with us. I always try to keep it clean and tidy for you.
Communal areas, like the bathroom, kitchen and living room are shared with us, my husband and I, we are very clean, tidy and respectful. I do understand that sometimes you don't want to share, as it has happen to some guests that have come to us. So think beforehand if you want to share. The positive thing about sharing is that your stay will be more rich, if you are open to have contact. You will have more local experience as we like to chat with our guests and offer them advice on their London sightseeing experience. Just ask us!!
The kitchen has all you may need for your breakfast! I'll leave in the fridge: milk, bread, orange juice, butter, jam, etc. There is also cereal, coffee/tee and biscuits available. You can use the kettle, toaster or microwave.
I don't offer use of the cooker or the kitchen for lunches or dinners. I understand some guests like to save money by having dinner at home but if you are looking to prepare meals then I have another apartment available for that! Have a look and book it in advance as it's very popular :)
Also...after having a guest misunderstanding I think I better clarify it as well: I don´t offer full English Breakfast neither serve it, but for those who like cereal, juice or toasts, I leave my kitchen loaded with different kind of cereal, bread, milk and juice for you to serve yourself, so you don´t need to worry about going out to having breakfast outside. Just please leave everything as you find it!
Check-in possible from any time but please note that the room will not be ready yet from the previous guests before 3pm so if you come earlier it will only be possible to drop off your luggage.
I'll need the room to be empty by 11 am but for later flights you can leave your luggage on the living room.
Please have a look of the house rules and send me your enquiry, I always like to check profiles so please add a photo (which shows your face!) and some information about you :)
I hope to hear from you soon!

We have a good time at Mary's home.
What a great location and fantastic couple. This was my first visit to London. The accommodation was accurately described and well appointed for my needs. Admittedly I did not get to speak with Joe and Mary that much because I was out and about enjoying their city! Highly recommended.
Superb place! Just about 5-7 mins walk to Elephant & Castle tube station. Buses are 3-5 mins walk away as well! Mary and Jo are really warm and friendly and I would definitely stay at their place again! Thank you for hosting us! :D
It took me a while to write this review but it is very important to me since I enjoyed this stay so much. Mary is Amazing and helped us a lot with everything we needed, just perfect. The room was exactly what we needed in terms of size and it was nice and clean as well as the bathroom. Morning was nice to sit in the kitchen and eat a small breakfast. The location of the apartment is perfect especially if you use the buses. i think it's ideal way to travel in London in terms of speed and you can see a lot of the city the way. the subway train near the apartment but the bus just outside the apartment. Thank you so much Mary!
Mary's communications were excellent and I had no trouble finding their flat. She met me on arrival and was polite and helpful. The room was fully as described - modern, clean, neat and warm - and I had a good night despite some intermittent noise from the adjacent rail line. The bathroom was shared, clean, modern and with bath and shower. It was my first airbnb stay and I was very satisfied with the experience.
Mary's place was perfect for us! Mary was more than accomodating as I told her an earlier time of arrival and it ended up that we were later which unfortunately made her change her schedule in order to get us settled into our room (Thank you Mary). The room was as advertised. One thing that was not so obvious to us was just how perfect the location is! Being from the states and going through the endless sleeping possibilities in London one can get very confused very quickly! We settled on Mary's place after reading the reviews and am so glad we did! She is so close to the main sites! So close in fact that we walked home one night instead of taking the tube! The place is located real close to the tube station and has good places to eat and shopping all around. Mary is as sweet as can be, offered tea and coffee and the use of her kitchen each time she saw us. The home has a super fast WIFI internet as well and lots of books to help you plan your visit to London. Mary gave excellent directions to her home which were very easy to follow. The room is located very close to train tracks and you do hear the trains. I had read another persons comments regarding this so came equipped with ear plugs. I am a super light sleeper and am happy to report that I didn't need the earplugs. Maybe I was just exhausted after taking in the brillance of this great city each day! Do yourself a favor...pick Mary's place....(Just make sure that you don't book when we hope to get the room again)....we will return thats for sure!!!
My girlfriend and I spent a short weekend in London and slept in Mary's room for Saturday night. The house is relatively close to the city, easy to reach by underground or by buses. Mary and her husband are really friendly and welcomed us in the best way. The room was comfortable and we very much enjoyed the breakfast on Sunday morning. We definitely suggest this location.
