About the Area

My apartment is located on the South side of the river very close to Albert Embankment. It is a very quiet neighbourhood, therefore, a good place to relax after the hustle of being in the centre of town. The West End is 25 minutes walking distance but many bus routes are available. Supermarkets are walking distance.

    Michael ist sehr hilfsbereit, gibt auf Nachfrage Empfehlungen und Tipps. Ich bin ihm dankbar, dass er mich an der U-Bahn-Station abgeholt hat. Die Wohnung ist eher etwas für junge Leute.

    La ubicación es la mejor.
    El anfitrión es muy amable, simpático y muy servicial, ofrece las mejores indicaciones sobre lugares para visitar y medios de transporte.
    El apartamento y la cama son cómodos.
    Hay transporte público hacia todos lados.
    La limpieza no es perfecta, y haría falta un banquito para sentarse en la cocina, adonde el huésped toma un desayuno.
    Estoy muy conforme y volvería a hospedarme en el mismo lugar. La relación beneficio / costo es muy buena.
    Lo recomiendo.

    Highly recommended for young and especially solo traveler, the rate is reasonable despite being in the central of London. I took a walk almost everyday to Westminster Bridge to South Bank, even few times to iconic places like Trafalgar Square, Piccadilly Circus, Parliament Square by walking and saved a lot Oyster credits, it took 30-45 minutes if you do not mind. Micheal is very helpful in guiding to places, he gave some practical choices and let you decide your own route. I am grateful and can't thank him enough. I repeat, highly recommended.

How do I book?

Contact the host to check their availability and ask them any questions you have about staying with them. Once the host confirms they’re available for your dates, you can complete your booking.

When do I pay?

Once a host confirms they're available, you can go ahead and pay the 15% booking fee (maximum of 199 $£€ for longer term bookings) and a 25% deposit using a choice of payments: Visa, Mastercard, American Express, Maestro, Laser, JCB & PayPal. The deposit is collected in advance on behalf of the host to protect against no show or late cancellations (within 7 days of arrival). You then pay your host the balance due on arrival. The 25% deposit payment is made to the host 2 business days after your scheduled arrival date. This deposit payment will only be refunded if you cancel the booking at least 7 full days prior to arrival.

When can I share my contact details?

Host and Guest email address, phone number and home address will be exchanged in a confirmation email sent to both immediately after a booking is completed. It's against our policy for Guests and Hosts to exchange direct contact details via our messaging system.
