Interaction with Guests
I was born in London and live in the flat and can give you local recommendations and advice and answer any questions you may have. Check out my start-up Babelverse to learn more about me and what I'm working on.
*** Art, Parks, Dining, Coffee, Pubs & Bars ***
The neighbourhood has a number of excellent pubs (Check out Stormbird pub & The Sun of Camberwell pub), cafes (Daily Goods Coffee, Love Walk Cafe), bars (The Communion Artisan Cocktail Bar) and delicious restaurants; British, Gastropub, Spanish, Lebanese, Turkish, Greek, Jamaican, Nigerian, Chinese, Thai, Vietnamese and many more, are within walking distance! There are a number of very large parks nearby too.
You are also very close to the vibrant and very hip neighbourhoods of Brixton (Food lovers paradise, check out Brixton Village), Peckham (Micro-breweries, night-life, artists), East Dulwich (Posher, night-life, Indian restaurants), Dulwich Village (A village in the heart of London), Clapham (Restaurant and night-life).
This part of London has many green spaces and is a great multicultural melting pot and an artistic and diverse neighbourhood.
The flat is also walking distance to King's College Hospital and Camberwell College of Art as well as The South London gallery.
Denmark Hill train/tube station (Orange Line on Tube Map) which is in the Zone 2 and is only 5 minutes walk from the flat.
Denmark Hill station has great transport connections to all parts of the city from one location you can get North, South, East, West and Central directly.
Train journey times:
- 10 minutes to Victoria (Buckingham Palace, St James Park, Hyde Park, Kensington)
- 10 minutes to Blackfriars (Tate Modern, South Bank, Borough Market, Shard, Tower Bridge, St Paul's Cathedral)
- 20 minutes to Shoreditch/Hoxton (Brick Lane, Night-life)
- 20 minutes to St Pancras (King's Cross, Eurostar, Camden)
There's also a bus stop 1 minute walk from the flat with regular buses. Bus 40 (London Bridge/Borough Market), Bus 176 (24hrs Soho/Trafalgar Square/Covent Garden/Leicester Square/Theatres/Musicals) and Bus 185 (Victoria/Buckingham Palace).
Bus 176 is a 24hr service that runs from Soho Central, Trafalgar Square, Leicester Square, Covent Garden, South Bank, Waterloo to the flat so you'll always be able to get to the centre day or night.
*** To/from all Airports ***
The flat is easy to reach from Heathrow, Gatwick, City Airport, Luton & Stansted. Just bare in mind that London is HUGE and Stansted is not even in London!! But ask me and I can help you find your way around.
You can also get directly to/from the Eurostar from Denmark Hill station.
But be warned! London is a really huge city compared to any other in Europe (10 million people) and you may be surprised how much time it takes to get around. Staying at my place is a very useful spot to get to all areas of the city easily.
Other Things to Note
The flat has free high speed WiFi Internet throughout. A nice fast fibre internet connection.
*** I can provide a local SIM card during your stay. ***
If you have an unlocked mobile phone I can provide you with a 3G/4G data SIM card (with £5 free credit). Useful for digital maps, live transport times and other apps that I can recommend to you when you arrive.
Please let me know how many SIM cards you need before you arrive and I can have them waiting for you. This is useful if you are a group and need to call or message each other since texts and calls are free between the SIMs.
*** Welcome to London! ***
I look forward to hosting you during your stay in London! :) if you have any questions feel free to send me a message via AirBnb and I'll get back to you ASAP.
Please read and respect these rules and let any other guests travelling with you know about them too!
If there are other house guests (including myself) in the flat then please be considerate and keep the shared spaces clean after you use them, this also includes using the bathroom as long as is necessary, since other house guests (and me) may be waiting to use it.
No smoking inside but you can smoke outside on the roof terrace or in the garden.
No cooking between 11pm-7am.
I have to recycle it's the local council rules, it's super easy and I have provided the instructions and separate bins. Please respect my recycling rules. Thanks!
Finally, please close all the main doors behind you, do not leave them open, some guests have previously left my front-door open, that's why I ask you to be extra careful the main doors to the flat are shut behind you.
Very large 25sq metre bright and spacious room. Perfect for couples or groups of 3-4.
Josef is the best host i've ever met. Present, friendly and above all, he is acquainted with his town. The space corresponds with the description and is worth its price.
Josef was a great host. He was very accommodating and flexible. The AirBnb itself was good and the location was close to Brixton and central London. Buses and trains were easily accessible too.
Josef was a great host! We felt at home. He gave us excellent recommendations. The flat is well located in a quiet neighborhood and it was spacious enough for 3 adults. The place was clean. We certainly recommend it.
Josef was a great host: allowed us to drop off our bags when we arrived early, was courteous and accomodating, and mostly "invisible" in the best sense. The room was a great value, in a quiet neighborhood, with access to major bus lines only a block away. We appreciated the rooftop patio in the evenings, the ability to make simple meals for ourselves in the kitchen, and the overall cleanliness of the place. If I return to London, I would definitely stay here again.
Bonne description du quartier, bonnes infos trajet.
Chambre agréable et logement bien équipé.
Hôte disponible et arrangeant.
Aikuinen ja 2 lasta majoittui mukavasti 5 päivää tilavassa huoneessa ja vapaasti käytössä olevissa yhteisissä tiloissa. Naapurusto rauhallinen ja hyvien kulkuyhteyksien päässä kaikesta tarvittavasta.
Tunsimme olevamme tervetulleita ja Josef neuvoi tarvittaessa mielellään. Kiitos hienosta kokemuksesta!
Es waren zwei sehr schöne Tage in London. Es gab zwar ein paar Komplikationen bei der Anreise aber insgesamt war alles sehr schön. Die Parkplatzsituation ist etwas schwierig, aber mit Engagement in den Griff zu bekommen. Danke für die schöne Zeit :)
