About this listing
A nice comfortable double room in a spacious apartment in London's most vibrant area suitable for one person.
This room is very nice and comfortable and, although fairly compact, it comes with a double bed, wardrobe, chest of drawers, desk and bedside table.
What's more, the apartment is really nice! It's located in a quiet 1930s building; it's clean, bright and spacious and it comes with a well equipped and recently refurbished kitchen; a good bathroom with shower (and a separate toilet, so you don't have to cross your legs if someone is using the bathroom!) as well as period features such as parquet wooden flooring and an exposed fireplace.
The price is excellent value for money, especially considering that the apartment is located in such a fantastic area for people visiting London - whether you are here as a tourist or on business.
Not only are London's top attractions such as the Tate Modern, Globe theatre, Borough Market, Tower Bridge, the Shard, National Theatre and the London Eye all within easy reach, but you are also within a short walking distance of the City - by strolling across the Millennium Bridge.
It also has great transport links, with London Bridge and Blackfriars railway stations being less than ten minutes' walk away; plus there are two underground stations and the Thames Clipper boat service within a similar distance. You can even hop on the RV1 bus and be in Covent Garden within no time too.
There are fantastic restaurants, cafes and bars in the area, especially those surrounding the gastronomic Borough Market! If you want something even more convenient, a Marks & Spencers supermarket is right on the corner too.
With all this and the river and top London sights on your doorstep, what more could you ask for?!
In addition to your own bedroom, you will be able to make use of the guest lounge and the kitchen, bathroom, toilet and balcony.
Interaction with guests
You will be staying with up to three other guests. The owner won't be present but will be on hand in case of any problems.
Other things to note
Please note that the apartment is on the third floor and there is no elevator so it is not really suitable for people with walking difficulties.
There is only one shower and one toilet (though they are in separate rooms, and there is an additional vanity sink in the toilet room.)
Guests are encouraged to treat the apartment as their home and make themselves comfortable. But please remove any shoes with heels so as not to damage the parquet flooring; please respect the neighbours and occupants with regards to noise and do not play loud music. If you use the kitchen please tidy up after yourself.
The apartment is not suitable for children or pets. Smoking is only allowed on the outside balcony.

As a travel photographer I've stayed in a lot of places across the globe. I generally prefer to stay in Airbnb properties rather than have a soulless hotel experience. I like to think that I'm a good guest because I'm not noisy and I care for the place as if it were my own.
From my travelling experience I appreciate the things that can make a stay more enjoyable, such as a decent shower, mattress, bedding and towels; complimentary beverages and toiletries; reliable, fast and free internet. All of these things I have incorporated into my apartment so that my guests can have a comfortable stay and enjoy the positives about being away from home without the negatives.
