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 as well 3 Metro stations which are all in close proximity.
For restaurants, there are several Indian restuarants on Kennington Road as well as a Pizza Express, Pizza Hut, a Chinese Restaurant, 2 new Japanese restaurants several coffee shops, a Fish and chips shop, a couple of good pubs that also serve food.
A local supermarket is also within 3 minutes walking distance to grab certain essentials.

He was a wonderful person, very helpful and nice. It was nice staying with him.
Michael was an adorable host, sensitive and careful. He showed me nice spots around and had lots of stories and knowledge about London. He was also helpful and supportive during my stay.
Thank you so much Michael!
Le logement était bien situé, la résidence était sûr. Pour ce qui est du séjour qui a duré 3 semaines pour ma part, j'ai pu vivre dans de bonnes conditions mais pour ce qui est de la relation avec Michael je m'attendais à mieux. Nous n'avons rien partagé malgré plusieurs tentatives de ma part. J'aurais aimé avoir plus d'interactions avec Michael c'est dommage car il a l'air sympathique.
A very good experience, a place very close to the main monuments of London. A very considerate host who explained many things to me about this beautiful city.
Enjoyed staying with Michael, his place is located very close to the centre with tube and buses nearby and he was happy to tell me anything i wanted to know. Would recommend if needing a place in Central London.
Michael picked me up from the train station, the first time for me that anyone has done that. Very nice! If there is a problem, you can talk to him and he finds a solution. He sure knows his way around London and helps you with directions or any other question you might have. In about 10 minutes you walk to the river but it’s not far to the next bus station as well. From the balcony of the inner courtyard of his apartment complex you can see the tip of the London Eye. Bathroom was clean so was my room. Thanks Michael for being such a nice host.
It’s not good environment to stay human. Dusty and limited amount of hot water for shower.
I stayed 10 Days by Michael and it was very good, clean und quite. Michael is a very nice man. His Apartment is good located. In the first day Michael showed to me the best ways to go the city and to come back home. Thank you Michael!
Michael is a very great host. He is very welcoming, nice and comunicative. His apartment is very well located, and very cosy. I recommend Michael without any hesitation.
It was a nice stay with a very kind person. The position is amazing! I repeat this because for me was very important. In few minutes you can reach the best tourist destinations of London.
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.
