Bright and beautiful recently refurbished one bedroom flat available in Victoria/Pimlico, London. Comfy bedroom, excellent location, incredible transport links and the big sites are within 15 minutes' walk. Lots of insider travel tips available!
The room: This is a gorgeous bright double room located between Pimlico and Victoria Tube stations in Central London. The double bed is super comfy, with clean linen, towels, toiletries, loads of space for hanging clothes, a chest of drawers and a desk to work, should you need to. When the wind is in the right direction, you can hear the chimes of Big Ben! The flat would be perfect for anyone looking for a clean, comfy, and safe base while exploring the city.
The flat: My home is a bright, cosy recently refurbished flat with lots of natural light. I love my home and really look after it, and hope guests will, too. There is a very clean bathroom with constant hot water and a great high-pressure shower. The kitchen is modern and equipped with pots, pans, etc etc. The flat is located in a small, very safe block of flats, and there is a balcony at the back - a great suntrap during your stay!
Interaction with guests
Although I won't be in the flat, I am hand by email/text to provide recommendations (and I will leave a big list of my favourite restaurants in London).
Other things to note
I live in an awesome central London location - sometimes you'll be able to hear the chimes of Big Ben! Due to the central location you may also hear some city noises - the odd siren, car horn etc. I have triple glazing in the flat so noise is largely shut out.
Pimlico feels like a little village in a busy city. Near the flat you'll find some great English pubs, independent cafes and restaurants, vintage shops, markets and bigger chain shops just five minutes away. I'm around a 20 min walk from Chelsea Flower Show and King's Road.
There are great breakfast spots and delicious London-famous restaurants nearby and supermarkets just seconds away, too. I am within walking distance of the big attractions in London, including Big Ben, Parliament and the River Thames - all of which you can reach in approximately 15 minutes by foot.
The flat is located in an amazing zone 1 location in London. Pimlico is a great neighbourhood within the big city and I have so much great stuff on my doorstep.
