We stayed in this lovely little flat for 5 nights in September, 2007, and had an excellent time. Simon, the owner of the flat, was very friendly and helpful, and a pleasure to chat with. The studio itself is delightfully decorated and cozy, with a comfy queen sized bed and couch for lounging. The kitchen is bright and cheerful, and is very well stocked with utensils to make cooking meals very easy. The bathroom is a little smaller than expected, but it was all we really needed for our stay.
The walk to the Kennington Tube Station is a breeze, and takes less than 2 minutes to get there. We were in Central London for sightseeing in less than 15 minutes altogether, so the location of Kennington is fantastic!
We walked with ease to the Tesco nearby for groceries, as it was not even a 10 minute walk, and there are numerous restaurants and pubs in the area, many of which Simon was able to recommend to us.
All in All, we had a wonderful stay, and we will definately return for another stay sometime soon!
Very well appointed, nicely decorated - even more so than in the photos. The kitchen is well-equipped. It's on a very quiet street, particularly during the night. It was roomier than we expected. The tube station is very convenient, only about a 1/2 block away. There's an express grocery store nearby and a very good bakery/tea shop within a few blocks. Everything was very clean and worked well. It's nicely redecorated with good quality materials. For walkers, it's a nice walk back from downtown London across Lambeth or Westminster Bridge. The Waterloo Train station is a tube stop away, providing easy access to other towns, such as Windsor. Getting there from Heathrow was a breeze on the Piccadilly Line to the Northern Line. Simon was very helpful in quickly answering all of our questions before we arrived. There are numerous tourist books/aids in the apartment as well as plug adapters. It's definitely a place we would stay again. It was a nice place to return to after a busy day in London.
Perfect for a single traveller, the flat is so welcoming to come home to. All the necessities are provided - in a lovely, gracious way. (The online pictures are accurate.) The bed and pillows are good, the shower is hot and plentiful, the kitchen works, wifi strong, and comfortable easy chairs and lighting for planning the next day's adventure. And the location was so very convenient to access all my destinations, including coming and going from two different airports.
We had a perfect stay at Simon’s flat! Simon was a kind and communicative host, and graciously flexible with check-in and storing bags after check-out as needed. It is evident that a lot of care is given to the details of this flat. The space remained warm and cozy over damp and chilly days. The bed was very firm but comfortable, and the blinds provided darkness and privacy for a great nights sleep! Thoughtful extras such as coat hooks, hanging space, and adapters for foreign plugs all helped make the space feel like home. We especially appreciated the quality water pressure and abundance of hot water in the shower. The flat is in a terrific location; just a two minute walk to the Kennington stop which is convenient for getting you to just about anywhere the tube or other transit services can take you! We hope to be back, but in the meantime you should end your accommodation search here!
Just realized I had not given a review, which is a terrible shame because we still talk about what a fabulous place this was. Absolutely perfect location to get to and to get back to after sightseeing for the day. We would go back here in a heartbeat. Grab the "Oyster Card" and don't be afraid of the "tube". We were a little worried this would be difficult and/or hard to understand. Wow, London has the perfect system and we were experienced tubers in no time! We stayed for 9 nights and a couple things we learned: Buy some peanut butter and make a quick sandwich to stick in your backpack along with water. The bar/restaurant around the corner (name slips my mind) makes the most wonderful appetizers and great food. Everything you need for a great stay is right around the corner. This flat really is a two minute walk from the tube. We did use the tube/train right from Gatwick with our prebought Oyster Cards. The bathroom really is tiny (but how much time do you spend there, anyways?) The flat is charming and much more than adequate. Simon was great to deal with and have only good things to say about him. Great vacation.
We really enjoyed our recent stay at Simon's. The flat was immaculate, very clean and more spacious than the pictures make out! Simon was very accommodating, the flat was stocked with tons of information about London and the surrounding area. The location of the flat was excellent, quiet and safe yet very close to the Kennington tube station from where we could travel to many popular sights in minutes. There is a Tesco nearby where we bought groceries for our stay. The White Bear Pub is just around the corner and had excellent food and service! I would reccommend Simon's rental to a single person or couple wanting to explore London. Thank you Simon!
Kennington lies just south of the Thames and only one and a half miles from the geographical centre of London.
Close to the tourist spots of the South Bank, Borough Market , City and West End. Great transport links with Tube, Bus and Rail. Minutes away is the delightful Clever Square with its traditional English pub which provides an excellent spot to sit on a summers evening and relax. Good local restaurants....as well as the swanky central ones.
