    Simon's studio flat is perfect! The bed is extremely comfortable and the place feels like home. Simon lives above the flat and is available if needed. The convenience of being near the Tube was HUGE!! Super easy to get around and not a far walk from the flat - literally around the corner. Great pubs nearby and a wonderful neighborhood. We didn't do any cooking but the kitchen is perfect for those who want to utilize it. There is also a washer in the flat - no dryer - which is great when you are packing lightly, just know you will need to hang your clothes to dry (a drying rack is available). You will also need to provide your own detergent as I didn't find any in the laundry room; luckily there is a little store just down the street. I would highly recommend Simon's rental for anyone looking for a cozy place to stay that is away from the busy city center, but easy to get to when you want to site see. 17 October 2017 - 15:49:00

    Simon's clean, quiet, well equipped and beautifully furnished flat was our cozy home for a week. It had charm and modern amenities, including a strong signal to a fast internet connection. Being so close to the tube station made it easy to get all around London, and there were plenty of neighborhood shops and restaurants to stroll to. Simon was a perfect host: flexible about our arrival time, greeting us warmly with useful information, always available but never hovering. He has set the bar very high for our future rentals! 13 November 2014 - 21:07:19

    My husband and I recently stayed in Simon's apartment for a week. Simon is very helpful and welcoming. The apartment is a basement apartment below Simon's apartment. It was in a quiet location in a residential area...only 2 minutes walk to the underground, which we used daily! The apartment itself has everything that you might need for your stay. The apartment is a nice size...plenty of room for 2 people! A great kitchen! Grocery stores are not a far walk away. Simon has provided all the information in a folder. We highly recommend this studio apartment! 02 July 2015 - 22:30:08

    We stayed for five nights at Simon's flat and had a wonderful time. Everything in the flat was as described or pictured except two comfy armchairs rather than a couch. The bed was so comfortable, we slept like babies. The flat was extremely quiet, just the odd squeaky floorboard from above where Simon lives, but we ourselves live in a home where the floorboards squeak a bit! Simon was there to greet us and explain everything about the flat and the area, even recommendations for pubs and grocery stores nearby - and the neighbourhood is great! Lots of dining/pub options and groceries within a few minutes' walk. The only thing we could not figure out was the dishwasher so we just did the few breakfast dishes each morning by hand - no biggie! So handy to have a washing machine right in the flat - very much appreciated. The place was cozy and warm. It is so close to the Kennington tube station that got us to the centre in no time at all, so easy! The flat has a security system which made us feel very secure, but the neighbourhood was nice; at no time of the day or night did we feel unsafe. If we ever visit London again, we would definitely book here again! Thanks again Simon for a great stay! 12 August 2016 - 00:38:43

    Just realized I had not given a review, which is a terrible shame because we still talk about what a fabulous place this was. Absolutely perfect location to get to and to get back to after sightseeing for the day. We would go back here in a heartbeat. Grab the "Oyster Card" and don't be afraid of the "tube". We were a little worried this would be difficult and/or hard to understand. Wow, London has the perfect system and we were experienced tubers in no time! We stayed for 9 nights and a couple things we learned: Buy some peanut butter and make a quick sandwich to stick in your backpack along with water. The bar/restaurant around the corner (name slips my mind) makes the most wonderful appetizers and great food. Everything you need for a great stay is right around the corner. This flat really is a two minute walk from the tube. We did use the tube/train right from Gatwick with our prebought Oyster Cards. The bathroom really is tiny (but how much time do you spend there, anyways?) The flat is charming and much more than adequate. Simon was great to deal with and have only good things to say about him. Great vacation. 19 February 2017 - 14:43:00

    My wife and I came here to enjoy our anniversary and stayed here for one week. Very comfortable and close to the underground. The flat had all the essentials and was close to a grocery store. Simon was super helpful with directions and recommendations. We would stay here again. Thank you Simon! 14 November 2017 - 12:27:00

    We really recommend to stay at Simon's house. No surprise, all is as shown on the pictures. Simon is available if you need support during your stay. Thank you, we will come back! 14 March 2017 - 08:41:00

    El apartamento es precioso. Una casa tipica inglesa remodelada con mucho gusto. Muy nuevo y perfectamente equipado y limpio pero sobre todo, muy bien comunicado a traves de linea negra Northem, cuya parada Kennington esta a dos minutos andando. Muy recomendable por calidad/precio. 10 December 2017 - 05:43:00

    We enjoyed the stay. The apartment was nice and very conveniently located near Kennington Tube. The host was very gracious. It is helpful that the host lives directly above the apartment. The unit was appropriately represented by the advertising. 03 October 2017 - 22:14:00

    We really enjoyed our recent stay at Simon's. The flat was immaculate, very clean and more spacious than the pictures make out! Simon was very accommodating, the flat was stocked with tons of information about London and the surrounding area. The location of the flat was excellent, quiet and safe yet very close to the Kennington tube station from where we could travel to many popular sights in minutes. There is a Tesco nearby where we bought groceries for our stay. The White Bear Pub is just around the corner and had excellent food and service! I would reccommend Simon's rental to a single person or couple wanting to explore London. Thank you Simon! 16 January 2017 - 21:39:00

    We stayed at Simon's flat for nine nights in late November/early December and were very pleased with our experience. Upon arriving we were happy to find that not only was the flat as pictured, but that it looked even nicer than we expected. As has been mentioned in other reviews, the apartment is exceptionally clean, well equipped, centrally located and reasonably priced. The flooring, shower, tv and appliances are all quite new and of a good quality. The kitchen has been remodeled recently and is attractive and well designed for its small space.After a day of touring the wonderful sites of London it was lovely to take a short tube ride and a quick walk along a safe, quiet street to our peaceful, comfortable home away from home. We would often stop at the handy Tesco near the Kennington Station to pick up a few groceries or a beer and a bag of crisps to end our evening. Simon was a pleasure to deal with and we were so satisfied with this property that we hope to return soon for a more extended stay. 08 December 2016 - 00:48:42

    This is a perfectly located flat on a quiet street just around the block from a convenient tube station. The flat was clean, exactly as pictured (beautiful), and Simon was quick to respond to any questions. It's plenty spacious for two people, the kitchen was well equipped, for the price I can't imagine why anyone would want stay in a cramped hotel room instead of this lovely flat. I would definitely book here again. 25 March 2016 - 14:17:25

    This was the fifth time we stayed a whole week in Simon's flat. Though it was very good from the start, it has improved even more: kitchen and bathroom have been renovated to a high standard. The location towards the tube is a real bonus, it takes you about two minutes on foot. The Northern Line is very good and takes you everywhere in a short time. If you are looking for a spotlessly clean place, this is the place to be! Simon is a kind and excellent landlord. This flat is amazing value for money. 18 June 2014 - 13:51:53

    My 12 year old daughter and I needed a place to stay for our mother/daughter week in London and this flat could not have been better. Lovely, safe, secure, a quick walk to an easy tube line, fastidiously clean and the most wonderful host 2 girls could ever hope for. We arrived on Saturday and Simon walked with me to the grocery store for supplies. He pointed out a lovely coffee shop and even a place where we could get fish and chips! We were able to make dinner each night in the flat to save money. Pictures on listing are accurate. We even had a little lemon tree just outside our kitchen window. It was the perfect base to relax and refresh from a day of sightseeing in London and beyond. If you need a nice place to stay while you spend your days exploring the city and plan to use the Tube, this is your place! I would recommend this to friends and family in a heartbeat! Thank you Simon for a terrific week! Hope to come back again! 23 April 2014 - 18:28:10

    God lille lejlighed som er indrettet men med fokus p funktionalitet. Alt virker og der er gode adgangsforhold til metro og indkb. Eneste minus er at der kan vre kligt da lejligheden er i en hj klder. 28 August 2013 - 21:11:53
