A cozy apartment. Location is excellent. Rafael is very helpful, particularly when I requested for an extension to the checkout time.
Glad you enjoyed your stay! Thanks for the feedback...
WOW what an awesome first Airbnb experience!!!! I stayed at Rafael's flat for three weeks and I truly felt at home. Rafael was very flexible, he let me renew the flat on a weekly bases.
Rafael was the perfect host and was in constant communication before and during the stay, he was extremely helpful throughout my stay.
The place is super modern, clean and has a great view of South London. It's stylishly equipped and very practical. Awesome choice!!!
The area of Elephant and Castle is well connected and has two tube lines and several busses leaving just outside the apartment, and if you fancy a walk 15-20 min to waterloo. I definitely would recommend!!!!!
All in all I loved the stay and would recommend it to anyone to stay either for long or short term. I would definitely go again!
My son and me spent 3 nights in Rafaels flat and it was great. The apartment is as described and shown on the photos. It's clean, modern, stylish, bright, near to public transportation, has a great view - simply perfect for a stay in London.
We didn't meet Rafael but he was always very quick in answering our questions. The check-in/ -out was very easy because there's a concierge in the house (24 hours) which gave us the key. As we arrived early in the morning, we could leave our bags in the lobby and check-in later in the afternoon.
Rafaels apartment is located near Elephant & Castle (1 minute) where you find trains (p.e. to Gatwick), the Tube and a lot of busses (nr. 12 brings you directly to Westminster, Picadilly and Oxford Circus). In front of the house there is a Barclays Bike station where you could rent bikes. Inside the train/Tube station you also find a Tesco (supermarket) where you can buy food, drinks and all other things you need.
We enjoyed our stay in London very much. It was great to come "home" from the busy city, cool down and have a rest in a comfortable apartment with TV, sound system and a comfy sofa.
The only thing which perhaps may disturb some persons is the noise from the street, the trains and the construction zone - but you can close the windows and then you can hear almost nothing. And if you're looking for real silence then you better don't go to London...
We really recommend Rafaels flat to everyone and would love to come back one day!
It was a great experience. Even some fruits were ready for us.
everything went very smooth.
The bed is very cosy and big, not like the usual British kingsize beds.
also there were enough empty drawers and space for our clothes.
I can every recommend this nice apartment
I spend about 10 days in Rafael's apartment and in was a great choice. The apartment is as described, it's a really nice apartment and there were no surprises. The building was very easy to find and check in was very smooth. Everything worked well in the apartment, the kitchen is very functional, the bathroom quite spacious and the bed very comfortable. The flat is nicely located in a rather quiet area but with great transport options to central London, the tube is just across the street and there are MANY bus lines very close by.
Rafael was great and helpful, his instructions were very clear and he checked in with me a couple of time in case I needed anything.
I would definitely choose his apartment again next time i am in London.
I couldn't have asked for a better 2 week stay! The apartment is exactly what it looks like in the photos, very clean and fully equipped with everything you need (microwave, pots, pans, hairdryer). The building is very easy to find and right across the street from Elephant & Castle station. There is a grocery store and other shopping outlets available across the street as well.
I'd definitely recommend this place to anyone visiting London wether it be for a short or long period of time.
We spent about 10 days in Rafael's apartment in April 2014 and enjoyed every minute of it. The apartment is cosy, new, modern, well equipped and maintained and is full of light (external walls are all glass, with an impressive view of southern London). Tube and train stations are near by and the distance from the heart of London is short. Rafael is more than helpful and welcoming. In short, we will definitely consider returning to Rafael's apartment in our next visit to London, but with ratings as ours it might well be already booked...
What a fantastic stay. Rafael was incredibly helpful and the space was as advertised - clean, comfortable, lots of little amenities, great modern building with a concierge and helpful staff, and centrally located. We were a 15 minute walk from the London "Eye", steps from the Elephant and Castle underground, 20 or so minutes from Soho. Very slightly off the beaten path but it suited us fine, and made us feel like true Londoners....and nice to have a place to retreat to amongst the energetic bustle of the city.
The flat was modern, clean, great kitchen and fridge, coffee machines and lots of light - what more could you ask for? Rafael checked in with us several times and offered suggestions in the area and was more than willing to point us in the right direction for anything we needed.
Great stay - and hope we can book there again.
Staying at Rafael's flat was a great experience for us. The place is super modern, clean and has an impressive view over London. Its big windows give it a spacious feel beyond its square-meters.
Rafael was a great host: he left the key for us downstairs and was good at communicating before, during and after our stay.
The area of Elephant and Castle is well connected and has two tube lines and several busses leaving just outside the apartment. It takes about 10 minutes to get to Picadilly Circus.
Rafael is an absolute excellent host. He was very insisting on my gf and i asking him questions and he is very prompt at responding. As my gf lived in London previously, we didnt have too many questions for him.
The apartment is absolutely perfect for 2 people. I worked for a few days out of the apartment on my laptop and found the internet to be extremely fast and reliable. The building is extremely new and clean and has 24 hour concierge/doorman which is nice and made us feel safe. The tube and great bus system is practically at the doorstep to the apartment which made getting everywhere in London and absolute breeze. I will definitely stay here again when coming to London.
As an added bonus - there is a Nandos around the corner. What is Nandos you may ask?! only the best Peuravian chicken ever. It's delicious and a perfect lunch spot. There is a nice gym a 15 min walk away as well which is an added bonus.
Great experience all around!
Rafael was a very gentle man. We have solved together some problems in a very collaborative way. That is the spirit of Airbnb. I like to have people like him in my apartment.
Rafael stayed 3 days more at home. He remains responsible and positive guy, so an ideal tourist. So do not hesitate to host them ;)
Thank you so much for coming to Ibiza and for staying at the apartment. Muchas gracias!
Rafael fue un huésped excelente, buena gente, simpático y respetuoso con las normas de las casa. Un placer haberlo tenido en casa.

Rafael was a great guest, willing to have an adventure and not just a leisure stay in Hvar. As he casted away in a small boat on a trip around Pakleni islands he got a great story to tell. Overall Rafael is a nice and communicative person who was a pleasure to host.
Rafael was a very good guest. He kept and left the apartment in great condition and his way of communication is very pleasant. I'd definitely recommend staying at his place or having him as a guest!
