About the Homestay
The apartment is in a newish building located few minutes' walk from the famous Tower Bridge, Borough Market, stretching to Shakespeare Globe and Tate Gallery, all the way to Westminster bridge and the Parliament.
It is on the second floor of a 6-floor building with a South facing living-room.
I offer a comfortable L shaped and firm leather sofa (2 m long on one side and 1.85 m on the other side and 63 cm deep) in my living room which has direct access to the balcony. It is suitable for, 1 person, a couple or siblings or friends travelers (other guests cannot book at the same time).
It is 10 min walk from Elephant and Castle train and underground station and 4 bus stops away from London Bridge station, and frm the main road plenty bus lines going to various parts of central London.
The area is full of life, vibrant Upper Street from Bermondsey Street to the Thames riverfront that is home to several cafes, and plenty of restaurants and art halls!
In a cultural district, near to national centers for arts, film, and performance (as well as The London Eye!). Not far from the Thames River, and the very heart of the Capital. Big Ben, Covent Garden, and Trafalgar Square are within few bus/metro stops distance from where I live. These can also be done by walking.

perfect host and lovely parrot!!:) even though we had rent the living room sofa bed, it was comfortable and seperated with other rooms. Location was great and easy to find as well.
Marie is a very caring and responsible person. She was friendly and helped much more than expected and obligated. I can highly recommend to choose Marie fir your stay in London.
You can expect a clean rooms and sufficient breakfast and a sofa which is ok.
Marie is friendly and helpful, she gives advice and spends always some time at talking with you. Good person!

Marie est une personne très gentille et accueillante avec un très bon contact. Je cherchais une personne sérieuse chez qui je pouvais laisser mes filles 17 et 19 ans en toute sécurité.
