The Space

Room with a single bed in a very nice and spacious maisonette with patio garden, 3 minutes walk from the River Thames, situated on the south side of Lambeth Bridge, with easy access to the city and the transport links of Waterloo Station, the House of Parliament, the Tate Gallery,the War Museum and the London Eye.

The room is neat and cozy with an in-built closet. The house has a large living room, eat-in kitchen, big office with an office chair by Alberto Meda...priceless even if you will probably sit in it just for 5 mins a day to check your e-mails or to call home with my (website hidden).

I have free weights kit (up to 35 kg.) and bench you are free to use.....and you can join me in my morning runs along the Thames, cross Westminster Bridge and back through the Victoria Gardens.

The house is on a quiet street with little shops and a very trendy pub. I have a parking space in the court yard of the building if you need it and opposite my garden door there is the docking station for "Take a cycle, ride it where you like, then return it, ready for the next person".

I am Italian but have been living in London for 15 years, I love it and consider it home! I left my banking job and went back to Uni: took an MA in the US and now a PhD in Italian Literature at UCL here in London. I am in the British Library every day....I am sure I will ask you to meet me there....just to show you the beauty of the temple of knowledge !! Hope you come and stay at mine, I am a perfect hostess!

  • Elisabetta is a fantastic host! Seemless stay, with no problems. Good price. Good accommodations. And great location! It's a 10 minute walk from Westminster, and the PERFECT location. 5 stars!

  • Staying in Elisabetta's place was perfect for my London mini-break. She couldn't have been a more helpful, pleasant, welcoming and accommodating host. The introductory tour of the house and its environs was simple, informative and very helpful. This location is perfect - just 2 mins walk from Lambeth Bridge, a lovely 10-15 min river walk to Westminster Tube Station, and Vauxhall Station was the same distance away in the other direction. The room is lovely and cosy with an extremely comfortable single bed. I would repeat my stay here without hesitation. Thank you Elisabetta for making my few days very pleasant indeed.

  • Elisabetta is an amazing host! She was nice, available and welcoming! She will offer you maps, directions and tips on where to go! She's the perfect host, knows a lot about London, literature and life. I can imagine she has a tip for everyone!
    The house is a five minute walk from the Parliament and Southbank. The room was tidy and comfortable and breakfast was perfect!
    I'm looking forward to go back again, definetely the perfect host, perfect room, perfect location! I highly recommend staying with her!

  • The apartment is a short walk to Southbank cafés and restaurants and across the bridge to the Houses of Parliament & so on. A very tidy single room in a convenient location. Elisabetta is a delightful and thoughtful host, offering maps, brochures & local knowledge to enhance your stay.

  • Elisabetta was a fantastic host. She was kind and welcoming, a real treat on a short visit to London. And, of course -- the room was perfect. Well-located, within easy walking distance (and even easier bus / tube distance) of all the major sites, clean, and peaceful. The breakfast was a great touch!

  • Elisabetta is a great host, she's giving me very clear instruction before I visit, upon arrival, she's showing me on a huge map where I can walk around. The room is clean and cozy. The maisonnette is located in a quite area, very easy to access either by tube (Vauxhall), bus, walk or riding Barklays bike (there's a bike station right in front of her maisonnette) Very great experience living in Elisabetta's place!

  • Elisabetta is a great host and her maisonnette is absolutely cozy. The place is 500m away from the London Eye and located close to Vauxhall station. The space in the house is perfectly allocated. The real deal in any case is talking to Elisabetta while having breakfast. Not only does she know a lot about history and literature, but her perfect knowledge of london becomes a real advantage when you want to find something or get somewhere in the city. Absolutely recommended.

  • Elisabetta was the perfect host. She made sure I was at home, let me work in her office when I needed, and the bed was really very comfortable! She gave me excellent instructions, the house is very pleasant, and we enjoyed some great conversations at breakfast and in the evenings. An ideal place to stay :)
