Big Ben & London Eye-20 minutes by bus/ 30 mins walking - Vauxhall studio
Floor No.(with elevator)

Alongside the bedding and towels, we offer two mobile phones and two transport passes (Oyster cards) that make travelling around London easier and cheaper. We also offer the essentials of breakfast, electric espresso coffee machine, hairdryer, flat screen TV/DVD (with 30+ TV and radio stations), a book exchange and DVD collection. We also offer you the following guides: "Great City Walks"; "101 Best Things To Do In London as voted for by Londoners"; "50 Great London Pubs"; and a "Secret London" Guide.
The apartments is newly renovated and redecorated, with a new futon sofa, European Kingsize (American Queensize) orthopedic bed and bedding, all especially designed for a restful night's sleep. We've recently decorated the apartment and have added some British art and crafts especially for you to see - replica artwork by the eclaimed British graffiti artist Banksy and the cushions are made by Welsh artisan craftsmen using recycled bottles.
The flat is in Vauxhall-Nine Elms - an up and coming area within walking distance of the capital's centre (1.5 miles). It's not yet trendy but it's got great transport links, is close to the centre and has a diverse ethnic mix. It's close to an area called "Little Portugal" in Stockwell - home to London's Portuguese community and people of Caribbean, West African and Indian descent. The high street close to our apartment has some cafes, restaurants, barbers and shops run by people from these communities.
We’re 15-20 minutes walk from Starbucks, Pret-a-manger, cafes, bars, nightclubs (in the newly named area of VoHo) and restaurants overlooking the river Thames. We're 5-7 mins bus ride from Vauxhall, London's largest transport hub where you can take buses, trains, tubes or a ferry to literally anywhere in London and beyond. You can also hire bikes by the hour – quite the way to see the city!
THE APARTMENT BLOCK:
The studio apartment is clean, cozy, calm and extremely private. It is set within a 1950's purpose built block and is on the fourth and top floor, access is via an elevator or stairs. The building and those around it are pretty typical post-war London apartment blocks, nothing fancy. However, the apartment is renovated to a high standard, has everything you need and the location is good.
Check-out is before 11am, check-in is after 1pm. In some cases we can be more flexible, so just let us know what times you need and we'll see what we can do.
