Pros: The space was clean and as advertised. The space is well located near Elephant and Castle and well within walking distance to the Kennington station. No more than 5 people should stay in this space, as the kitchen and common space will get tight. We had five and a baby in our party, we spent most of our day time touring, we cooked in the evening, and we never felt the need to have a bigger space. But it was close.
Cons: The environment surrounding the apartment space can be difficult. The intersection of Kennington Park Road and Kennington Lane is busy on workdays and currently there's construction work across Kennington Lane. Matthew has done an excellent job limiting the issue by installing double-pane windows in the bedrooms. This is a five star location if not for one issue. On the final night of our stay, the sushi restaurant that occupies the basement of the apartment decided to stain/paint their hardwood floors. The strong toxic fumes rose into the living space where we five (and a baby) started to fear that we would not wake up should we fall asleep. We turned on all the provided fans and slept with the windows open on a cool March evening and dealt with the sound of the Saturday night traffic and nightlife. I assume Matthew rents to the sushi restaurant downstairs. If so, the timing of this type of routine maintenance needs to be better managed and communicated.
