We rent our guest-room in our new, modern and stylist 2 bedrooms apartment. We also live in this apartment and would love to welcome you and give you the best tips from this fantastic city.
This is a new building so it has all the facilities like 2 lifts and an special entrance for disables!
The location can't be better for transport, as we are in Zone 1, in the heart of the city "Central London". The tube and rail way stations are just on the next block and a wide option of buses go past just on the corner. From here you can go to everywhere in London and very quick! You can go to Victoria, the main station in London, in just 15 min by bus which is really good for those who need to save time. In fact for those who like to walk you can even do it to the Big Ben.
You can star your trip by looking into the area pictures: https://www.airbnb.co.uk/locations/london/walworth
This is a multicultural neighbourhood with all facilities and conveniences with plenty supermarkets, coffee shops, banks, cash points, etc.
All central London sights are reachable by bus which you can take just outside the building. That´s a great advantage because the tube fare is almost the double of the bus price!
Let's talk about your bedroom: It's cosy and with a super comfy king size bed perfect for a couple or for 2 people (everyone that has slept there says the same: what a great bed!). We bought the mattress very recently and yes, it's very comfortable for your back (it's not the cheap one). There is 1 bedside table and 1 bedside cabinet. There is also a desk and 2 very comfortable chairs and a TV to watch DVD's (I haven't install the British Channels as this is very expensive in London) but you can borrow a DVD from the collection on the entrance hall.
There is a wardrobe with hangers available so you will have plenty space for your clothes.
Bedlinen and towels are provided as well as a very reliable WiFi connection (Username & Password will be on the desk)
For a third guest I can add a single bed in the room but obviously that will cut space!
The bathrooms is very spacious, modern and as it's the only bathroom in the apartment so it would be shared with us. I always try to keep it clean and tidy for you.
Communal areas, like the bathroom, kitchen and living room are shared with us, my husband and I, we are very clean, tidy and respectful. I do understand that sometimes you don't want to share, as it has happen to some guests that have come to us. So think beforehand if you want to share. The positive thing about sharing is that your stay will be more rich, if you are open to have contact. You will have more local experience as we like to chat with our guests and offer them advice on their London sightseeing experience. Just ask us!!
The kitchen has all you may need for your breakfast! I'll leave in the fridge: milk, bread, orange juice, butter, jam, etc. There is also cereal, coffee/tee and biscuits available. You can use the kettle, toaster or microwave.
I don't offer use of the cooker or the kitchen for lunches or dinners. I understand some guests like to save money by having dinner at home but if you are looking to prepare meals then I have another apartment available for that! Have a look and book it in advance as it's very popular :)
Also...after having a guest misunderstanding I think I better clarify it as well: I don´t offer full English Breakfast neither serve it, but for those who like cereal, juice or toasts, I leave my kitchen loaded with different kind of cereal, bread, milk and juice for you to serve yourself, so you don´t need to worry about going out to having breakfast outside. Just please leave everything as you find it!
Check-in possible from any time but please note that the room will not be ready yet from the previous guests before 3pm so if you come earlier it will only be possible to drop off your luggage.
I'll need the room to be empty by 11 am but for later flights you can leave your luggage on the living room.
Please have a look of the house rules and send me your enquiry, I always like to check profiles so please add a photo (which shows your face!) and some information about you :)
I hope to hear from you soon!
NOTE: DURING 15-21 DEC 2013 AND 12 FEB-8 MARCH 2014 THIS IS GOING TO BE RENTED AS A WHOLE APARTMENT AS WE ARE GOING ON HOLIDAYS. FOR THAT REASON THE PRICES ON THIS DAYS ARE HIGHER!

Reviews of this property
We have not seen Mary during our stay. Although absent, she often contacted us to ensure that we lacked nothing. The apartment is very new, in perfect condition and well equipped. Located just steps from a subway station, it can reach central London in a few stations. An address to remember during your next stay!
Nous n'avons pas pu voir Mary pendant notre séjour. Bien qu'absente, elle a nous souvent contacté afin de s'assurer que nous ne manquions de rien.
L'appartement, très récent, est en parfait état et bien équipé. Situé à deux pas d'une station de métro, il permet de rejoindre le centre de Londres en quelques stations. Une adresse à retenir lors d'un prochain séjour !
I booked a room in London through Wimdu over the weekend. I found the perfect one that suited us. Wimdu is a great help if you are tight on budget and time. The rates may be low but the service is superb.
Mary was as pleasant as could be and the accommodations were clean and comfortable. I would definitely stay with her again.
It was great at Mary and Joe! They were extremely friendly and helpful, we felt at home with them. First, we were given a detailed description of their centrally located and peaceful, beautiful apartment, there were not only delicious local tea including good conversation and good London tips. Highly Recommended :-))))!
Es war großartig bei Mary und Joe! Sie waren überaus freundlich und hilfsbereit, wir fühlten uns bei ihnen wie zuhause. Vorab erhielten wir eine detaillierte Wegbeschreibung zu ihrer zentral und gleichzeitig ruhig gelegenen, schönen Wohnung; vor Ort gab es neben leckerem Tee u.a. nette Gespräche und gute London-Tipps. Absolut empfehlenswert :-)))) !!!
We stayed five night at this wonderfull place in London. location is good, appartment nice and the hosts wonderfull. I would recommend it to anyone who would like to stay in London at a great place at a great price! perfect for discovering the city!
Just returned from London where we (mother and daughter) overnight at Mary and Joe. We were very hospitable and Mary is a very friendly hostess. Our room, and the bathroom was neat and clean. Mary was always willing to answer our questions and help us. For us it was the first time we have booked a B & B so we did not know what we could and could expect. Best to get used your hosts morning in pajamas at breakfast ;-). We found it strange that we do our breakfast together had to scurry into the kitchen, there was nothing ready and put at breakfast was brought to our sense too little attention. For us this was a downside, it made us feel more emphasis on the bed and not on the breakfast.
Net terug uit Londen waar we (moeder en dochter) hebben overnacht bij Mary en Joe. We werden zeer gastvrij ontvangen en Mary is een zeer vriendelijke gastvrouw. Onze kamer, evenals het sanitair, was keurig schoon. Mary was altijd bereid om onze vragen te beantwoorden en ons te helpen.
Voor ons was het de eerste keer dat wij een B&B hebben geboekt dus wisten wij niet wat wij konden en mochten verwachten. Best wel even wennen je gastvrouw en -heer 's morgens vroeg in pyjama bij 't ontbijt ;-). Wij vonden het wel vreemd dat we zelf ons ontbijt bij elkaar moesten scharrelen in de keuken, er was niets klaargezet en aan 't ontbijt werd naar ons gevoel te weinig aandacht besteed. Dit was voor ons een minpuntje, het gaf ons het gevoel dat het accent meer op het bed lag en niet op het breakfast.
Mary and her husband are great hosts! I arrived, she was at home, the room was perfect. To travel for me always making personal contact with the people. Unlike in hotels or hostels this was possible. We sometimes sat together until well after midnight, and inspired us to chat. I first booked through Wimdu a hotel and was impressed that people are willing to share their homes, the bathroom, the kitchen. And what is surprising: we are never got in the way. It was beautiful, very family oriented, my expectations were exceeded. And everything was so clean and appetitilich - a thank you to the hard-working hostess.
Mary und ihr Mann sind großartige Gastgeber! Ich kam an, sie war zu Hause, das Zimmer war perfekt.
Zum Reisen gehört für mich immer auch der persönliche Kontakt zu den Menschen. Anders als in Hotels oder Pensionen war dies hier möglich. Wir haben manchmal bis weit nach Mitternacht zusammengesessen und uns angeregt unterhalten. Ich habe erstmals über WIMDU eine Unterkunft gebucht und war beeindruckt, dass Leute bereit sind, ihre Wohnung, das Bad, die Küche, zu teilen. Und das Überraschende: Wir sind uns nie in die Quere gekommen. Es war wunderschön, sehr familiär, meine Erwartungen wurden übertroffen. Und: alles war so sauber und appetitilich - ein Dank an die fleißige Gastgeberin.
Even though I only stayed 2 nights, I had a great time with Mary and Joe. Their flat is very clean and tide and they are a great host. They made me feel at home. I highly recommend it.
Last week we were four days in London, the truth is that it was right to rent this room, the floor is very good, both in situation (a 5 min. Walk from the metro station "Elephant & Castle") as the floor in if (very nice and clean). Mary and her husband are lovely and we were treated like family. I recommend it.
La semana pasada estuvimos cuatro días en Londres, la verdad es que fue un acierto alquilar esta habitación, el piso esta muy bien, tanto en situación (a 5 min. andando de la parada de metro "elephant & castle") como el piso en si (muy bonito y limpio). Mary y su marido son encantadores y nos trataron como si fueramos de la familia. Os lo recomiendo.

Mary and her husband have been very helpful and kind!
The apartment is located between Elephant & Castle and Kennington, serving different lines, which is great!
The apartment itself is not totally renovated, the beds are awful and the carpet is dirty. Also the kitchen and the bathroom were not very clean... Nevertheless we enjoyed our stay because the city was only 10 minutes away and we had a great time in London!
