In the heart of Soho with its bustling streetlife and amazing choice of restaurants, cafes and bars, this 4 person-studio is bang centre for theatreland and the West End's shopping streets, and only minutes from 4 tube stations serving 5 lines (including the Piccadilly line). Fortunately this part of Soho has little motor traffic.
Just 100 metres from Oxford Street, it is situated on the 3rd floor of a secure block (with lift and video entry system). This one apartment is bright with rooftop views, and comprises reception room (with bed & sofabed) and adjacent modern fitted kitchenette (including dishwasher, washing machine/drier and combi-cooker etc). Spanish influenced bathroom with bath shower and wc, and double glazing.
Rent includes all utilities, freeview television, cd/dvd player, and free broadband internet.
The location of this apartment is great. Right in the heart of Soho close to a few different tube stations (and lines) and 3 minutes walk to Oxford Street. That is probably the last good thing I can say about it. Although the location is good it is VERY noisy so if you are looking for peace and quiet this is not the place for you as the street below is bustling no matter what time of day or night. We expected this given the location so were fine with it. The things we were not happy with were the apartment was not very clean (especially considering they add on a cleaning fee on top of the advertised price once you go to book it) dust and dirt in all of the corners we had to go around with the dust buster provided. Wifi may as well not be included and the only place you get signal is standing in the hall near the lift (outside the apartment), we also had to request the password a few times and didn't receive it till around 4 hours after check in. Bed was horrible with springs digging in to your side. Kitchen facilities were fine but they had folding plastic chairs but no table so had to eat on the couch with our plates on our laps. When I contacted the owner Roberto for assistance with a few things he did not seem to care that our experience was not good. Wouldn’t be able to recommend this place unfortunately.
Great location and comfortable apartment which made our stay all the more enjoyable. It was a bonus being able to get around central London on foot and nip back quickly when our son needed his afternoon sleep. Everything that we needed for our stay was provided and the owner took the time to provide with us with useful information when we first arrived.
Although we found the kitchen a wee bit small it did have everything that we needed to cater for a toddler and cook meals.
It's always a bit of a hit and miss affair when trying to find accommodation that meets one's expectations/ needs, so finding this place has taken away a lot of the hassle for when we visit London next time. We would definitely recommend this apartment.
