Our comfortable suite comprises a private bedroom, living area and bathroom. It fits two on a standard double plus one child/adult on a sofa bed.
It is close to all amenities and has fast and easy transport links - 9 mins walk to Oval tube station which is just in zone 2 and then 10 minutes to the West End (Leicester Square / Piccadilly). Numerous bus routes all close by that take you to all parts of the city. Private entrance and in a quiet area.
The space is situated on a small lane to the side of the studio of the famous artist Anish Kapoor (who designed Cloud Gate in Chicago amongst others) and has almost zero traffic despite being just seconds (literally) from a supermarket which is open 7am-11pm, other shops and numerous bus routes into town.
The studio is on the ground floor.
The main living area is fitted with a kitchenette with sink, two-ring induction hob, multi-function microwave oven and fridge/freezer. Nespresso machine with some capsules supplied, a kettle, toaster and all the usual cutlery, plates and glasses that you’ll need for your stay.
Efficient inverter air conditioning system for heating/cooling
A large 1m wide wardrobe has ample space for you to unpack during your stay. There is a separate bedroom with an internet enabled 32" TV/DVD player, a double-bed with high quality Egyptian cotton linen, side table and lamp and desk with roll-out stools.
WiFi access is from a router in the studio so the signal is always good. This is hooked up to a 40MB fibre optic connection.
The studio room is totally private. We live in a raised first floor apartment away from the studio so if you need anything or any recommendations then we are always willing to help.
Camberwell New Road is a vibrant area with a choice of shops and some restaurants a short walk away. But if you need to cross town to visit friends or discover other parts of London you’ll find it’s fast to get around. We are near a row of shops open late for all conveniences as well as take-away food. There is a farmer’s market on Saturday’s near Oval tube which is great for produce, cakes and other specialities. Vauxhall around 20 mins walk is a well known clubbing area and has a diverse collection of venues.
Brixton (10 minutes on the bus) has a good music scene with clubs and bars as well as a large covered market worth visiting at the weekend with organic produce, independent coffee shops and a plethora of other trendy gear.
Clapham North is a short bus ride and has a vast range of restaurants, late night bars and a good selection of clubs which are busy Thursday- Sunday.
Underground: Oval tube station, Zone 2, on the Northern Line is about 8 minutes walk and you can reach Leicester Square in just 9 minutes.
Bus: There are three bus routes just outside which head towards Vauxhall, Victoria and on to Hyde Park / Marble Arch. Another 8 routes are 5-10 mins walk and cover routes towards Shoreditch/Liverpool Street and the City. You’ll quickly get to know where you are and how to navigate the area whether on foot, by bike, bus or tube and we can help out when required. For smart phone users we recommend that you download the Citymapper app - this allows you to search for routes and gives you all the alternative transport choices in an instant - tube, bus, on foot or by bike.
Nearest cycle hire is by Oval tube station 8 mins away.
Nearest river boat service from Vauxhall 10 mins by bus or 25 mins walk

Artist from London and interior designer. I am English/German and my partner is Italian. I have been living in London for over 18 years so can always point you in the right direction if you need any ideas. Although London at first seems a bit vast it's surprising how much you can cover on foot or bicycle without being entirely exhausted and I can help you get the most out of a first visit with ideas on what to see and do.
