The space

this is a whole apartment…to yourselves. Sunny, clean 2 bedroom apt sleep 4-5, near Waterloo, Vauxhall, + Westminster tubes, located near Lambeth Palace, this comfortable and elegant, fully equipped apartment is ideally situated for anyone wanting to experience central London and the West End. All the excitement of Piccadilly Circus, Soho and Leicester Square, shopping on Oxford St... all only a short 15 - 30 minutes bus trip away, with bus stops at your door step. 10 minutes walk along the Thames or 5 minutes in a taxi, and you are at the London Eye, a bit further and you have a choice of many restaurants, the National Theatre or the British Film Institute, another 10 minutes and you are at Borough Market, London Bridge, and Shakespeare's Globe. In the other direction it is 10 minutes to Vauxhall or Victoria Station.

The apartment is close to the tourist centre of London. A 10 min. walk to Tate Britain. The # 3 bus from the corner is 5 minutes to the Houses of Parliament, Big Ben, Westminster Abbey and White Hall, (stroll from here through St James' Park to Buckingham Palace); 5 -10 minutes on to Trafalgar Square, the Strand, China town, Covent Garden Market, the West End, and the Haymarket; Shaftesbury Avenue's theatres, the cinemas of Leicester Square, Soho's night life, Picadilly, Regent St, and the miles of Oxford St shops.

In another direction take the 360 bus to the King's Road Chelsea, Sloane Square and the High Fashion of Sloane St; the Victoria and Albert Museum, the British Museum, Harrods, Royal Albert Hall, Lady Diana's Kensington Palace and within walking distance to South Kensington High St and Notting Hill, where Charity shops are a treasure trove of designer labels.

Bus 507 + C10 on the embankment take 10 minutes to Victoria Station, (the Gatwick Express) Tate Britain, more theatres + shops

Waterloo and the Old Vic are a 15 minute walk, the area is well provided with coffee shops, restaurants, English pubs serving great food, and shops and supermarkets. A Farmers Market is held every saturday 10:00-15:00 at Kennington Church opposite Oval Station, its a great place for organic vegetables, and other gourmet essentials.

Good location about 10 min from the tube. Clean, basic apartment. Had all we needed. Check in easy and Jennifer was flexible with us for a late checkout.

The location of the flat is suitable for exploring the sights in London; however, it is a very long walk to attractions. Using the bus took 4+ times as long as walking due to constant traffic jams. The flat itself is not in a secure building - there are no hallways, it is direct entry from a walkway into each flat. Expect to bring your own hand soap, dish soap and toilet paper, and to have to light a stove if you want to cook. The toilet is in a separate room from the shower and sink. The noises from the other flats can get quite loud. I would recommend confirming WiFi information prior to arriving to ensure you have the current one and also double check all information for accuracy.

Jennifer was wonderful to work with. Of all the Airbnb rentals I've used I would have to say she is the best communicator of all of them. I'm happy when an owner returns my post within a day, Jennifer always responded to any request or question well within that time frame, more often than not within an hour, once within 3 minutes! She was nice and easy going. Unfortunately we didn't get a chance to meet face to face, as this was a self check in apartment (with lock box, a big plus with our group of four who sometimes split out on their own. Not worrying about who has the key is always nice). The apartment is only 1-2 minute walk to a bus stop which offers easy access to the center of London, yet far enough away to offer a quiet night's sleep. The apartment is located in an apartment building surrounded by other flats, however this is a residential area and the neighbors are pretty quiet for the most part. As this is a residential area, you won't find much in terms of restaurants or pubs within 3-4 blocks, but the bus will quickly get you to these, so I wouldn't worry much about that. There is a very nice pub within 3 minutes walk called the Windmill Pub that offers good pub food and drinks at reasonable prices. We made this our last stop nightly. Furnishings at the flat are rather rudimental, and the fabric a bit worn, but otherwise the place was good, clean, and suffecient. The satellite tv offered a large variety of channels. There was plenty of hot water, even with 4 people taking showers in the morning. The only negative of our stay was the heating didn't seem to work properly, and maybe that was user error on our part. Still, for four old university friends, not a major issue as the apartment is surrounded on all sides by other flats. We all agree that we would stay there again when the opportunity arises to return to London.

We enjoyed the location and proximity to points of interest and transportation. With the elevator, access was easy to the flat. However, the flat could certainly benefit from some freshening up and investment in upgrading of furniture and overall decoration. I don't want to be too critical, because Jennifer did a great job communicating and provided tons of local information. The bathroom needs serious attention to safety (there is no separate shower) as there are no grab bars and the tub is very deep. making access difficult for a shorter person. There is a short glass panel that does little to confine shower water, and makes taking a shower very difficult. Overall, we didn't expect the Ritz, but the space could be much nicer with a little effort and investment.
