Clapham south B&B provides anything you should need for a great London trip. Located just a few minutes from Clapham south underground station in a typical Victorian neighbourhood, you can reach all of London’s attractions in no time. Clapham itself is astoundingly calm for a district of London, yet provides enough amenities on its own (e.g. Pubs with regular pricing), so there’s no real need to go out to London city center all the time. Diana is a charming host - if you are good to her (and I had no reason to put her temper to the test at all) she will surely help you out with those inevitable “how do I get to…” questions and she is also a nice person to talk to. In other words: You come for the bed, you stay for the breakfast. What else can one ask for in a London B&B?
Diana is an excellent host! She is a warm person and always helpful. The house and the rooms look exactly as shown on the pictures! The house was clean, the rooms were well equipped and we enjoyed our stay very much! As we 3 were staying for one week, we fully enjoyed the self-made breakfast which was plenty (even for us!); we ate a giant bowl of fresh fruit, yoghurt, toasts, croissants (with or without chocolate) and we were even able to taste a very delicious English breakfast! It was wonderful! The next train station is about 5-10 minutes away from the very beautiful Victorian house. Clapham South is also worth a visit; very green, quite calm, very nice surrounding. One evening we walked through the park and the pubs nearby look all very typical British to us. We will definitely stay at Diana's house the next time we are in London!
Wir waren im Sommer für eine Woche im B&B von Diana Robertson in South Clapham. „Di“, wie wir sie nennen durften, ist eine sehr herzliche Person, der nichts zu viele Umstände bereitet. Sie hat uns jeden Tag ein ganz wundervolles Frühstück bereitet, das uns bis zum Abend durch den Tag gebracht hat mit Obstsalat, Müsli, Joghurt, Marmelade, Aufschnitt, Ei, Toast und Croissant, auch extra wünsche wie ein original englisches Frühstück wurden erfüllt, einfach herrlich. Auch war Sie immer eine Hilfe, wenn wir ein Taxi brauchten oder fragen hatten wie wir am besten und schnellsten von Ort zu Ort kamen. Das B&B liegt südlich der Themse und ist 5-10 min zu Fuß von der Underground Station South Clapham entfernt. Die Innenstadt ist also in 20-25 min zu erreichen. Die Gegend ist auch nachts ruhig und sicher. Das Haus selber stammt aus der viktorianischen Zeit und vermittelt seinen eigenen Charme. Die Zimmer und das Bad entsprechen den Fotos und sind sehr sauber. Wir haben das Badezimmer und die Zimmer tgl. aufgeräumt und sauber vorgefunden. Ich würde jederzeit wieder dieses B&B nutzen. Danke für die wunderschöne Zeit in London.
It's been twelve months since our last visit, everything that made our first visit special was there this time, a quite secluded oasis in the middle of the madness known as London, a friendly help host and everything you need for a comfortable stay, you are near the heart of the capital, but you return to your own little world after a hard days sight seeing Will return again
Andrew and Julien are wonderful hosts. The apartment was so close to Vauxhall train station, we could walk along the Thames to London Eye and Tesco was around the corner. We had a sensational time and really appreciate your fast internet and access to the printer Andy!!! Your local advise was brilliant especially getting an oyster card and how close The Oval was but honestly the peacefulness and picturesque Bonnington Square will always be in our thoughts and hearts and we will be back again some day and will recommend you to friends. Thanks for a wonderful time xo Catherine Sarah & Rowan
Mi pareja y yo estuvimos 3 días allí alojados junto con otra pareja, y nos encantó el lugar, Diana fue encantadora con nosotros, nos dio todas las facilidades. La casa está muy bien cuidada, el barrio es muy tranquilo y muy bien comunicado. No dudaremos en volver!! Muchas gracias Diana, un saludo desde España Ana S.
Lovely elegant house in a great villagey part of London, very charming!! Anna is a wonderful hostess, full of knowledge and knows all the best places to visit. Our room was immaculately clean as was the rest of the house! Great breakfast, great chats and we will back again soon - thank you!!
My family and I stayed at Clapham South B&B for 3 nights. Diana was extremely warm and welcoming and nothing was too much trouble. The location is very good, close to Clapham South tube with lots of restaurants in the area to choose from. Overall, a great place to stay and near the major amenities.
Le B&B d'Helena est très sympathique, avec une hôtesse qui sait bien accueillir ses hotes européens. Situé à Peckham dans la banlieue sud de Londres, c'est très accessible par le bus (n° 63 depuis Saint-Pancras ou le n° 12 depuis Westminster), ou alors le train entre Rye Peckam et London Bridge. Pour le bus+train+metro ne pas oublier son Visitor Oyster Card à 18 euros dans l'Eurostar, avec un crédit suffisant pour 3 jours au moins (et rechargeable aux bornes des gares principales).
I would like to thank Anna so much for the stay, the hospitality, the empathy between us during our conversation at the breakfast time. Everything was so sweet and organized! I hope to come back to Anna as soon as possible, and I really invite everybody who wants to have a special experience to come and stay to her! Elisa (Verona, september 2015)
Nous avons passé 3 nuits chez Pedro qui est un höte on ne peut plus discret mais aussi attentionné et toujours prêt à donner des conseils de visites ou de choses à faire. Le logement dans son ensemble est très bien tenu, très propre, le lit très confortable. Les petits déjeuners vraiment copieux et variés, excellents!
Estuvimos cuatro días y el trato no pudo ser mejor. Pedro muy atento desde el primer momento, el desayuno espectacular y las habitaciones y baños limpios y confortables. Tiene buena comunicación con el centro de la ciudad. Seguro que repetiremos.
I booked a room for two persons, 5 nights, and did not specify singlebeds. We got a room in the cellar and within a few minutes after entering the room we could hear the Underground trains passing. No efforts were made to offer us a different when we approached the front desk. Trains stopped at midnight and started at 05.30. End of sleep. Toilet and shower were to share. No where this was mentioned when I booked Be very specific if you book here...
Nous avons loué 2 chambres pour le week end du 1 mai et toutes les 2 étaient très bien, très propres. Pedro est un hôte attentionné : son petit déjeuner est un bon départ avant des visites de Londres et d'autant plus que le bus nous amène très rapidement au coeur du centre historique. A recommander
We were at the 4th floor, not quite to the top. Every corner of this house has been optimized to the max. Room very small, very cheap furniture, nothing leveled. Fell like one is going to fall out of the toilet as not on an even floor. Based our choice on the reviews…– Felt like we were in a different place. We know it is London – known to be expensive…yet for a B&B expensive . Definitely did not meet Price / Value. Redeeming value: good breakfast/ nice staff/ great location. We stayed 2 nights May 3/4, 2015
Andy was a helpful and delightful host. He cooked a yummy breakfast each morning and was able to suggest a super place to eat dinner. The flat was warm and cozy, the bed was super comfy we had wifi, and a large HD TV with all the channels. The flat has a cute little garden and we awoke to birdsong and breakfast, Lovely! I would recoment this B&B to anyone!
Hye, we was there with my wife, we are 30 years old, we emjoys a lot our holidays. Helana's house is fantastic, the breakfeat was wonderfull, the reception and locazation were great as well. Its near to the city center. when we back in London, we go there other time!! Thank you Helana for your hospitality
We, my husband and I, went for a short trip to London and stayed in Helena's bed and breakfast. Helena and her lovely daughter made us feel very welcome and we will definitely stay here again. They are lovely people, the rooms are just right and very clean, the private bathrooms are perfect and the bus stops to get into the city are in very close proximity. So YES to Helena's. We will be back. Wir können Helena nur empfehlen, feine, kleine Räume und ein herzliches Willkommen ist garantiert.
We checked in a 2 night stay. Staff were really pleasant & helpful in giving us tips & directions to the tube routes. Great location, only a few minutes walk to Kings Cross Station yet was in a quiet area. The room was clean & warm. What more could you ask for! Breakfast included a fry. As we were checking out at 7am (breakfast 8-10am) on our last day for early flights, the staff gave us mini cereal boxes & bowels for the room so we could have something prior leaving! We all were very impressed with the place & would definitely stay there again.
We stayed in October 2014 after I had booked on-line. The location looked to be perfect and it was. We travelled with our daughter and 4 y.o. grand-daughter and couldn't have asked for better service. We had the 2 bed room on the top floor, the stairs were many but once up it was no problem for us. Very convenient for getting around as the buses stopped practically outside the door and tube a short walk away. The breakfasts each morning were beautiful and nothing too much trouble. Will definitely stay at Parkwood if I ever have the opportunity to visit London again. Jennifer Marsh, Brisbane, Australia.
My husband and I stayed for 3 nights in Helena’s B&B at the end of January. She had welcomed us very warmly in her lovely and very clean house. The room was nice and, even if it was not to much big, there was all you can need and the bed was very comfortable. It is not easy to find in London a place so clean and with a price so honest. A real delight to the palate is the very rich breakfast which Helena prepares every morning for her guests. She has been very polite and available to help us for any need. The house is reachable in two minutes walk from Peckham rail Station. I definitively felt at home during my staying there and I would rather come back the next time. Federica from Italy
This hotel has a excelente location in London, aand despite the simple accommodation and the lack of elevator, it's clean and confortable. I liked the breakfast and the staff area heplful. If you want a cheap but honest and well-placed hotel in London, think about The George.
Affascinante, eclettica e cosmopolita, Londra è forse la città che, insieme a Parigi, meglio rappresenta l’identità policroma dell’Europa del terzo millennio. Ricca di testimonianze storiche, di tradizioni e di folclore, nello stesso tempo si dimostra innovativa e in continua evoluzione, culturalmente vivace grazie alla policromia etnica dalla quale è popolata.
La grandezza e la complessità di Londra richiede una soggiorno di almeno una settimana, per poter avere almeno il tempo di visitare i luoghi più celebri della città. Scegliere un Bed & Breakfast in uno dei quartieri di Londra è il sistema migliore per immergersi nell’atmosfera vivace e coinvolgente di questa città.
Con cinque aeroporti, la più grande piazza borsistica del mondo e il più antico sistema di ferrovia sotterranea, Londra, per la sua posizione privilegiata è divenuta nel corso della storia la meta principale dei flussi migratori. È la città più popolata in assoluto, e anche la più visitata dai turisti, oltre che sede di teatri, musei e monumenti e di quattro patrimoni dell’umanità.
Londra è una sorpresa senza paragoni, un infinito succedersi di meraviglie da scoprire giorno per giorno. Solo per ricordarne qualcuno, la National Gallery, con i capolavori dei più grandi artisti di tutto il mondo, il British Museum, con le collezioni d’arte di ogni epoca, la Torre di Londra, uno degli edifici fortificati più famosi del mondo, la Tate Gallery con le opere e le installazioni d’arte moderna e contemporanea, il Victoria e Albert Museum, dedicato all’arte e al design di tutto il mondo, il National Maritime Museum, uno dei più grandi musei navali. Inoltre, Hyde Park, Kensington Gardens e gli altri parchi reali, le dimore storiche, i negozi per lo shopping più trendy, il musical e il teatro.
Oltre alla notte di Capodanno e alle luci di Natale, Londra offre ai visitatori un ricchissimo calendario di eventi in ogni mese dell’anno in grado di soddisfare qualsiasi desiderio e preferenza: le stagioni del teatro e del musical, i concerti, i balletti, il Carnevale, i grandi eventi sportivi, dal tennis di Wimbledon all’ippica, i grandi protagonisti del rock in Hyde Park.
Per i golosi, Londra è un vero paradiso: dal breakfast tradizionale inglese, al tè pomeridiano, alle serate nei pub, ogni ora è quella giusta per assaggiare pietanze sfiziose e insolite. La cucina tradizionale inglese propone roast beef, verdure, frittura di pesce, carni affumicate, dolci, creme e budini, ai quali si affiancano i piatti della cucina internazionale.
Il clima tipico non è dei migliori, anche se il cielo nuvoloso e la pioggia regalano alla città la sua atmosfera affascinante e letteraria. Ovviamente non mancano le belle giornate, ma è meglio premunirsi contro il freddo, l’umidità e la pioggia frequente.
