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 for this host's other properties
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!
Gemütliche Wohnung in sehr guter Lage und mit sehr guter Verkehrsanbindung für viele Bus- und Bahnverbindung. Mary und ihre Familie waren sehr flexibel und hilfsbereit. Wir haben uns wohl gefühlt. Gerne wieder!
This cozy appartment is a relief in the middle of Londons teeny tiny hotels rooms. The beds and pillows were quite comfortable en bedrooms were big enough. The bathroom is modern and offers a bath and shower (in the bath). The kitchen is also very modern and well equipped.
The location is ideal, 5 min walk to the underground where you can choose between 2 lines. There's a supermarket in de shopping centre near the underground station. Another positive point: we stayed in the appartment with 5 girls and never felt unsafe in the neighborhood.
The only problem we had in this appartement was the warmth. It was very warm in the appartment, which was weird because it wasn't that warm outside. But since you'll be sightseeing pretty much the whole day and probably only sleep in the appartment, this warmth is not really a big deal.
If I come back to London I would like to stay here again and I would recommend it to friends or family!

Good apartment, very comfortable and well situated in London. Easy to find from the underground access and 15 minutes far from Westminster with the underground. We just had a heating problem (it was too hot in the apartment and we couldn't stop it)
Todo muy bien. Casa acogedora, bien situada y comunicada.
We hat a wonderful stay in Mary's Apartment. She was so nice and we had a fantastic trip to London.
It is close to Elephant and Castle (just a few minute walk -> there is also a supermarket) We choose the Bus (Line 12 to Oxford Street) which brings you to many important places.
Hemos estado encantadas, tanto con el trato con la propietaria, como la situación del apartamento
Además cumple todas las necesidades que puedas llegar a tener.
Ya se lo he recomendado a varios amigos que están interesados en ir
Me gustaría que de mi parte le hiciesen llegar a mar y las gracias por como ha atendido todos mi correos y dudas.
We had a lovely 1 week stay a apartment. It was cosy and warm, clean throughout, and the kitchen wavery well-stocked. Elephant and castle is generally safe. Although, there arenot too many restaurants or shops around. There is a however a Tesco supermarketwithin 5 mins walking distance. The best part is that the apartment is situated very near public transport including the tube and buses, with easy access to key areas: 6 stops to Kings Cross, 3 stops to London Bridge, and 1 change to the city centre. Overall, we were very pleased with our stay and would recommend it others.
