Lola responded swiftly to my queries and Paco who gave me the keys on arrival was very friendly and helpful. The house and surroundings are as described, very cosy and personal and a great area for exploring the south of London. Great to see a part of London outside the tourist tracks. I am very pleased with my stay in Walworth.
The house itself was fine with plenty of space which is rare for the price in London. If you want a place close to the tube, this is not it but if you don't mind buses or walking to the nearest tube station, then this is a bargain in a quiet neighborhood.
The house although charming was a little on the dirty side, found the shower over the bath orkward as hand held only.
The neighborhood was safe and the closeness to the East Street Markets for excellent produce was great.
I'm not sure if I'd stay again, if house and not a good garden (disappointed) were tidied up maybe.
Lovely, quiet neighborhood. Great central location. The flat came fully prepared with all the home comforts. I love living like a local while traveling and this was exactly how it felt. Thank you, Lola and Paco for the help and information.
Neighborhood was good. Easy to get to everything and grocery stores nearby. Flat was a little dingy but clean enough for my short visit. Lola was good at communicating but the person who was supposed to greet me and give me the keys I never met. I got the keys from a neighbor who had nothing to do with the rental. Wireless wasn't working and sounds like they already knew this but didn't fix the problem. In the end someone came into the flat when I was out to fix it but didn't tell me they were doing so. This made me feel a little uneasy. And it was on my second day so I had already paid for wireless access because I needed directions ect.
Most host I am told lives in Spain, not London, I was sick and was feeling very stressed when I arrived as all my attempts to contact Lola prior to arriving in London went unanswered. After arriving there with great difficulty after being told by a taxi driver that it was a "no go area", I found a note stuck on the door with 2 phone numbers to ring re getting the keys. My phone was flat and I was luckily rescued by a neighbour who phoned one of the numbers and we were told that the keys were under the front door mat.
The flat itself was OK with most things that one could want. The only problem was that Lola's possessions filled the entire flat and there was no room in the wardrobe or drawers to put any my clothes. The other initial issue was that the internet wasn't working. One of Lola's tenants who lives in another house she owns a few doors down the one who told me where the keys were) was very kind and tried to remedy this for me. I ended up buying an English simcard with data for my phone and tethering my ipad to that, and this nice young man reimbursed me for the cost. Tho other issue seemed yo be with the immediate neighbours who stated that they needed to rescue the majority of guests when they first arrived. There is also virtually no insulation between her ceiling and the flat above, making it very noisy downstairs and me having the TV on even quietly affected the sleep of the baby who sleeps directly above the loungeroom.
Having said all that, I found the area pleasant and not as the taxi driver had told me. The flat, although old and a bit run down, was good value for London and close to the city and public transport. The neighbours made me feel welcome and Lola's tenant was lovely and helpful. I just wish that Lola had been a more communicative and welcoming host.
Great neighbourhood/ transport good/ great walks to Thames/ hosts always responded ASAP/East street markets fun
Durante il soggiorno a Londra siamo stati poco nell'appartamento comunque l'abbiamo trovato abbastanza pulito,accogliente e confortevole.Rispetto alle foto e alla descrizione il giardino era un po' brullo e non c'era il tavolino.
Riguardo i trasporti la zona è ben fornita e raggiungibile.
Una buena opción para quedarse unos días en Londres.
Es verdad que la casa agradecería una pequeña reforma (la moqueta está algo sucia y las paredes tienen algunos desconchones y manchas de humedad) pero tiene todas las comodidades que puedas necesitar.
En el barrio hay muchas tiendas de todo tipo. El metro está algo lejos (20 minutos andando) pero está muy bien comunicado en autobús con lineas directas a muchos destinos habituales.
Clean apartment, The owner Lola is not actually there, just some guy Paco who is not much of help.
There's a few signs of anti-israel and pro palestine stuff in the apartment which is odd, this is supposed to be a bnb not a political camp, but oh well, didnt bother me too much.
House is placed very well nearby the main center, but if yuo do not have GPS - none of the people around will know where the street is at.. so be prepared to already know how you're going to reach it at first because finding it at night was not easy, and paco was not avilable to assist either.
