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!

6 Golden Rules!!
1. If you need to smoke it has to be outside the BUILDING.
2. THE KITCHEN USE IS STRICTLY ONLY FOR BREAKFAST. Please wash whatever you use.
3. The cupboard above the microwave it's ONLY PRIVATE USE, guests can use the cupboard on the right hand side of the fridge.
4. Use the bathroom's squeegee and wipe the walls every time after shower. You can find it on the left hand side of the hand-wash basin.
5. If you sprinkle when you tinkle please be neat and wipe the seat.
6. Shoes off at the door, this way the apartment will remain cleaner!

Mary was great and did everything she could to make me feel welcome. The room was well appointed and very clean. Flat smelled great.
Mary and her husband were very nice, easy going and friendly. The room and the bed were nice and comfortable. Would definitely recommend.
The room is nice and big and there is a very nice view. The location is great concerning transportation. The disadvantage is the trains that come by ever so often so earplugs is a good idea.
Mary and Jon are very friendly, the place is perfect close to metro, the apartment is so clean, and we felt like at home
Mary and her husband were both great hosts, very friendly and helpful! They recommended getting oyster cards for public transport, and I would too! If you'll be staying for a few days it's the cheapest way to travel. They also provided cereal, cookies coffee and tea for breakfast which was very nice!
The room was very nice and quite large, and came with a desk & chair which was very handy. The bathroom and the rest of the flat were very nice as well.
The location was very convenient as it was only a 5min walk away from elephant & castle tube station. It seemed like a nice safe location too.
The only downside was there were train tracks just outside the window, and a decent amount of trains squeaking by at all hours.
Overall a great stay and we would certainly recommend it!
엘레펀트캐슬지역이 사고가 좀 있던 동네라 걱정했는데,
역에서 가까운 큰 대로 근처에 있어서 전혀 위험하지 않았습니다.
집은 깨끗하고 안락했어요. 다만 화장실을 공유해서 쓰는거는 좀 불편했는데
이 부분은 미리 고지된 부분이니 참고만 하면 될듯해요~
This a very convenient location for getting around. We used the tube system daily daily and walked. There are many interesting restaurants close by. We felt very safe. The room was as advertised. The hosts are very pleasant and respect your privacy.

I'm Colombian and living in London for almost 3 years! My husband, Jo, is British. I moved here because of his job with the FCO.
We met in Colombia and were living in Berlin for 3 years as well, where we both learnt German; we really love that great City.
I'm a computer science engineer and MBA professional and my husbands background is politics, history and arts...he likes to paint in his spare time.
We enjoy salsa dancing, of course...especially him... and having interesting conversations with good company.
We also like to meet people from different cultures and love to hear stories from around the world.
