Q: My wife is curious to know why no TV?
A: There is no TV because I don't like it. I find nothing worth watching and if I am so lazy as to turn it on, the rest of the evening is wasted on pap. I would much prefer to go down the pub, have a couple of drinks and talk to real people or read a book or program some software or go dancing or many other things which you wife may want want to hear about.
Q: Why is there only one bed?
A: The apartment is quite small. We used to have a sofa bed, but more than two people staying in the apartment is too many. It is not a tenement. Also, especially with no TV, the bed gives you plenty to do.

Q: Is there a phone?
A: Yes there is a phone. Please use it. You may be charged a small amount at the owner's discretion. Local calls (theatres etc) are free for sure.
Q: Is it allowed to smoke?
Q: I don't like at all smoking smell, so is the ventilation effective?
A: YES VERY. We have happy non smokers staying
Q: How big is the bed?
A: 200cm x 160cm
Q: I have big back problems, so I need to be sure that the bed is comfortable (not too soft, not too hard…).

"A gem in busy London city!"
I highly recommend this flat to people < 2 if you want to plan a short getaway or honeymoon in London. The location of this flat is perfect-- 30 seconds of walk to Vauxhall tube station, and 2 mins walk to Vauxhall train station for overground. If you want, you can take a stroll along Thames River to London Eyes, Big Ben, Buckingham Palace--are all within 20 mins walk.
The flat is so well equipped and furnished. It's very clean too! We cooked everyday in the flat and saved us lots of cost on food. The host George is tremendously responsive and helpful. Without this flat, I don't think we would have such a great stay in London.
Some reminders to people who want to rent this flat:
1. you need to bring your own hair dryer
2. there is no TV in the flat, but wi-fi is available and the speed is perfect-- you actually don't need a TV! just bring your notebook/ipad with you
