Siamo stati due settimane in questo appartamento e ci siamo sentiti proprio come a casa. Oltre a confermare in tutto le recensioni precedenti, vorrei sottolineare che uno dei punti forti è la cucina. Normalmente negli altri appartamenti non è così curata come in questo: abitabile, con lavatrice, lavastoviglie e tutti gli elettrodomestici necessari (+aspirapolvere, stendino, 2 asciugacapelli, etc.). Wifi incluso e veloce.
L'ubicazione è perfetta, Ottimamente collegato con tutte le linee di metro e autobus ma consente anche molti giri a piedi. Supermercati nelle vicinanze + parecchi pub e ristoranti.
In una parola: perfetto! Se lo trovate libero, non fatevelo sfuggire!
Ovviamente è adatto per 2 adulti e due ragazzini al massimo.
This apartment was great! 3 of us stayed in the unit and it was spacious enough to not feel overcrowded. I like that the separate rooms allow for the person in the living area to feel like they have some privacy. No issues with temperature, although the thermostat seemed to do it's own thing at times. The owners were easy to get ahold of and we were able to check in early, even though this was not expected. I do like that they allow you to leave the luggage in the apartment, even if the space is not quite ready.
It is a top floor walk up, no elevator. So if you travel with heavy luggage or have any disability that prevents you from doing steps, this is not for you.
Also, the tub is really high above the floor! I am tall, so this was not as challenging for myself, but my travel companions were on the shorter side and felt some anxiety with getting in and out of the tub after showering. There is no anti-skid on the basin, so it can get slick as well.
Aside from this, it was a great stay without any issues.
This apartment is great - much more space than we expected and lovely and bright. Good wifi. Kitchen and bathroom were both good with plenty of water pressure which is always a bonus in the UK. There are 4 flights of stairs to get to the apartment, so avoid having very heavy luggage. The building was under scaffolding while the exterior was being renovated, but generally this wasn't a problem. There is a large building site opposite which is noisy during the day, but we were out sightseeing so it didn't matter. Sean welcomed us to the apartment and provided info on the area. Also when we needed some wine glasses, they were quickly provided. Fitzrovia is a great area with easy access to Oxford St, Theatres and so many restaurants, but somehow not such a touristy feeling. Highly recommended.
We had an excellent journey in London. This apartment is 2 minutes to Oxford street and Soho so we just have to walk to visit London's center.
Also bus and underground stations are 5-10 minutes walk to bring you to the most important places of London.
Pubs and restaurants are all around. Thanks to the manager we discovered Charlotte street and its restaurants.
The apartment was clean. All we need was there. The room have enough space and bed is OK. Kids slept well in the living room. Even with the street noise of night life (Soho is just next after all !)
We really recommend this place for those who want to see the center of London's life, at day and at night, be next to restaurants and pubs but also shops of all type.
The location of this apartment was great, but it would have been nice to know that extensive work was being done on the exterior while we were staying – scaffolds and tarps surrounded the building completely during our visit. Contractors asked us to leave windows unlocked while we were staying which made us feel the apartment wasn’t as secure as we expected. There was also plastic sheeting on the carpets in the stairways which was a bit slippery to walk on.
The apartment was just okay – nothing special, and a few issues. Don’t expect to have any supplies at all – we arrived to find less than half a roll of toilet tissue in the bathroom and when I texted to request more, I was told “we provide you with a couple of rolls, however all consumables are the guests’ responsibility in this self-catering option.” Not only did the cleaners not leave any toilet tissue other than a part roll, their work in other areas was slap-dash. The living room has a large mirror that was covered with handprints when we arrived, the fridge had some spots inside it and the washing machine STANK. I ran it once on hot with just soap to freshen it before doing laundry. Although the kitchen is well equipped with appliances, don’t expect any basic supplies of any sort in the kitchen – not even salt and pepper.
The area was great to stay in and close to lots of good restaurants and coffee shops (check out Kaffeine, just steps away, and the Vapiano within walking distance!). I won’t book this apartment again, but will certainly look at other options in the area.
The apartment is very close to Charlotte street, and is a few blocks north from Oxford street, between Tottenham Court Road and Oxford Circus. Close by is SoHo and further south Leicester Square and China Town and, Covent Garden. Nearby attractions:
- Soho, China Town and of course London's most famous shopping area Oxford and Regents Street.
- Shaftsbury Avenue - London's Theatre Land
- Charing Cross - with the famous Foyles bookshop
- Covent Garden - with its quaint shops, restaurants, market and the opera houses
- Charlotte street itself is a buzzing area with a high concentration of restaurants and great old London pubs.
All the places mentioned above are within 10 or so minutes walk from the apartment.
