We rent our guest-room in our new, modern and stylist 2 bedrooms apartment. We also live in this apartment and would love to welcome you and give you the best tips from this fantastic city.
This is a new building so it has all the facilities like 2 lifts and an special entrance for disables!
The location can't be better for transport, as we are in Zone 1, in the heart of the city "Central London". The tube and rail way stations are just on the next block and a wide option of buses go past just on the corner. From here you can go to everywhere in London and very quick! You can go to Victoria, the main station in London, in just 15 min by bus which is really good for those who need to save time. In fact for those who like to walk you can even do it to the Big Ben.
You can star your trip by looking into the area pictures: https://www.airbnb.co.uk/locations/london/walworth
This is a multicultural neighbourhood with all facilities and conveniences with plenty supermarkets, coffee shops, banks, cash points, etc.
All central London sights are reachable by bus which you can take just outside the building. That´s a great advantage because the tube fare is almost the double of the bus price!
Let's talk about your bedroom: It's cosy and with a super comfy king size bed perfect for a couple or for 2 people (everyone that has slept there says the same: what a great bed!). We bought the mattress very recently and yes, it's very comfortable for your back (it's not the cheap one). There is 1 bedside table and 1 bedside cabinet. There is also a desk and 2 very comfortable chairs and a TV to watch DVD's (I haven't install the British Channels as this is very expensive in London) but you can borrow a DVD from the collection on the entrance hall.
There is a wardrobe with hangers available so you will have plenty space for your clothes.
Bedlinen and towels are provided as well as a very reliable WiFi connection (Username & Password will be on the desk)
For a third guest I can add a single bed in the room but obviously that will cut space!
The bathrooms is very spacious, modern and as it's the only bathroom in the apartment so it would be shared with us. I always try to keep it clean and tidy for you.
Communal areas, like the bathroom, kitchen and living room are shared with us, my husband and I, we are very clean, tidy and respectful. I do understand that sometimes you don't want to share, as it has happen to some guests that have come to us. So think beforehand if you want to share. The positive thing about sharing is that your stay will be more rich, if you are open to have contact. You will have more local experience as we like to chat with our guests and offer them advice on their London sightseeing experience. Just ask us!!
The kitchen has all you may need for your breakfast! I'll leave in the fridge: milk, bread, orange juice, butter, jam, etc. There is also cereal, coffee/tee and biscuits available. You can use the kettle, toaster or microwave.
I don't offer use of the cooker or the kitchen for lunches or dinners. I understand some guests like to save money by having dinner at home but if you are looking to prepare meals then I have another apartment available for that! Have a look and book it in advance as it's very popular :)
Also...after having a guest misunderstanding I think I better clarify it as well: I don´t offer full English Breakfast neither serve it, but for those who like cereal, juice or toasts, I leave my kitchen loaded with different kind of cereal, bread, milk and juice for you to serve yourself, so you don´t need to worry about going out to having breakfast outside. Just please leave everything as you find it!
Check-in possible from any time but please note that the room will not be ready yet from the previous guests before 3pm so if you come earlier it will only be possible to drop off your luggage.
I'll need the room to be empty by 11 am but for later flights you can leave your luggage on the living room.
Please have a look of the house rules and send me your enquiry, I always like to check profiles so please add a photo (which shows your face!) and some information about you :)
I hope to hear from you soon!
NOTE: DURING 15-21 DEC 2013 AND 12 FEB-8 MARCH 2014 THIS IS GOING TO BE RENTED AS A WHOLE APARTMENT AS WE ARE GOING ON HOLIDAYS. FOR THAT REASON THE PRICES ON THIS DAYS ARE HIGHER!

Reviews of this property
Mary is a great host. Before my arrival, she emailed me a very detailed instruction on how to get to her flat from the tube station. Room was clean and tidy. Had a pleasant stay.
The apartment was close to a train-way, which made some noise, but with the windows closed it was alright. There is a underground station very close to the apartment, and in a view minutes you are in the center of London. We have seen a lot, and had a great time. The only thing we didn't like was the smell of smoke, someone smoked in the building and the apartment. Besides this, everything was very nice.
Very welcome. Mary is great. She gave us great tips for visiting London in a weekend. She offered us breakfast for the second day. It has even been talk about anything and everything over a cup of tea. We recommend it highly.
Très bon accueil. Mary est géniale. Elle nous a donné de très bons conseils pour visiter Londres en un week-end. Elle nous a offert le petit déjeuner pour le deuxième jour. On a même pu discuter de tout et de rien autour d'une tasse de thé. Nous la recommandons chaudement.
We had a super great weekend at Mary. The room was clean, the location class buses run 24 hours directly outside the front door. Mary is very simple and gives you tips for the London trip. We would come back any time!
Wir hatten ein super schönes Wochenende bei Mary. Das Zimmer war sauber, die Lage klasse- Busse fahren 24 Stunden direkt vor der Haustür. Mary ist sehr unkompliziert und gibt einem gerne Tipps für den Londontrip. Wir würden jederzeit wiederkommen!
Welcome, well located apartment in the city, you can go on foot to westminster bridge ... However, the room is a bit small for 2 adults and a child.
Bon accueil, appartement bien situé dans la ville, on peut aller à pieds à westminster bridge ... Cependant, la chambre est un peu petite pour 2 adultes et un enfant.
First I want to thank Mary and Jo for the lovely stay and the nice evening with wine and snacks ... also for the assistance of Mary in general ... we could ask anything ... how do we get there? When is it open etc. They have always made time for us! The location of the apartment is great! You can catch a bus at the door go directly to the center otherwise the way to the tube station is only 5 minutes walk :) The apartment has character and we liked it very well! The bathroom is spacious and the wifi ... the room is quickly just to stay the right size, however, there were two drawbacks. The mattress was too soft for our conditions and the noise level due to the passing train is unbearable with the windows open and I'm a light sleeper even with the windows closed can still be heard! But apart from this property is highly recommended! We even have coffee in the morning, toast and / or cereal get ;) Thanks for everything and see you next time!
Als erstes möchte ich Mary und Jo danken für den schönen Aufenthalt und den netten Abend mit Wein und Snacks...auch für die Hilfe im allgemeinen von Mary...wir konnten sie alles fragen...wie kommen wir da hin? Wann ist dies offen usw.sie hat sich immer Zeit für uns genommen! Die Lage des Apartments ist TOP! Man kann mit dem Bus vor der Tür direkt ins Zentrum fahren ansonsten ist der Weg zur Tube Station nur ca. 5 Minuten zu Fuß:) Die Wohnung hat Charakter und das hat uns besonders gut gefallen! Das Badezimmer ist geräumig und das Wlan schnell...das Zimmer ist zum Übernachten genau die richtige Größe allerdings gab es zwei Mankos. Die Matratze war für unsere Verhältnisse viel zu weich und der Lärmpegel aufgrund der vorbei fahrenden Bahn ist bei offenem Fenster nicht auszuhalten und da ich einen leichten Schlaf hab auch mit geschlossenem Fenster immer noch zu hören! Aber davon abgesehen ist diese Unterkunft nur zu empfehlen! Wir haben sogar jeden Morgen Kaffee, Toast oder /und Cornflakes bekommen;) Danke für alles und bis zum nächsten Mal!
Mary was a fantastic host! Her apartment was clean and beautiful and easy access to public transportation, about a 5-min walk to the Tube. She was very sweet and helpful in answering any questions we had about London and how to get around. We would highly recommend Mary's apartment. Thank you, Mary!
My wife and I had a nice stay with Mary. Great hospitality and close to everything. If you are looking for a place to stay cheap but still with good quality, faciities and also in central London, Steedman St. is the place to stay.
Apartment consists of 2 bedrooms, one occupied by the owners who are a wonderful and kind couple, and the other bedroom, intended for tourists, living room and bathroom. Located 5 minutes from the Metro - Elephante Castle - therefore perfectly, and the bus stop is right below the building and connects to the center. We slept well and we had everything you could need on holiday, we recommend an overnight stay in this apartment. Cleaning: Excellent Service: Excellent Breakfast: cereal with milk
Appartamento composto da 2 camere di cui una occupata dai proprietari che sono una splendida e gentile coppia, e l'altra camera matrimoniale destinata ai turisti; soggiorno e bagno.
Situato a 5 minuti dalla metropolitana - Elephante Castle - quindi perfettamente collegata; la fermata degli autobus è proprio sotto l'edificio e collega con il centro.
Abbiamo dormito bene e abbiamo avuto tutto ciò di cui si può aver bisogno in vacanza, consigliamo il pernottamento in questo appartamento.
