Welcome to my home! This bright and spacious apartment is located only a minute walk to Elephant & Castle Tube Station. From here, you can get to the heart of the city in 10 mins. Explore the iconic Trafalgar Square or ride the London Eye at Waterloo - all within 10 mins of the flat. The flat is newly built and modern throughout with hotel quality linens and towels available for each guest. The flat has everything you need for a restful stay in London!
I am delighted to welcome fellow travelers to this home. This modern one bed is perfect for those looking to spend time in London as a local but also stay close to some of the best sights here.
The flat is only one minute walk from Elephant and Castle tube station which is one stop away from Waterloo on the Bakerloo and Northern line. Hop on the tube and you can get to most places in Central London in 10 mins.
Coming back to the flat itself - its a spacious one bed by London standards. The living room is minimalistic with a nice sofabed, TV and a dining table for four. The sofabed opens into a full double bed and is really comfy (I can vouch for it). The TV has basic channels but I am sure you will not be spending much time home watching it as there is so much to see and do in this great city!
The kitchen is fully equipped with everything you need including toaster, kettle, micorwave and a set of pots and pan. You will find sample tea, coffee and sugar so you can make your morning cuppa at home.
The bedroom has a lot of storage space and I provide hotel quality linens for the best nights sleep. In the bathroom, you will find fluffy white towels, shampoo and shower gel so you don't need to carry your own. There is also a hair dryer for the ladies!
Laundry facilities include washing machine, iron and ironing board. Baby cot and high chair can be provided upon request.
The entire apartment is available for my guests other than some cupboards where I store my stuff.

My friends at Hostmaker will look after you during your stay and they will meet you in person for the key exchange.
