THE NEIGHBOURHOOD

Location, location, location! You won't find better than this!

Situated in Fitzroy Street, W1, we offer a top location in the heart of the West End in trendy Fitzrovia, a super central arty foodie paradise location with a villagey feel and Georgian architecture. The area was once home to such writers as Virginia Woolf, George Bernard Shaw and Arthur Rimbaud. Today it is a popular and lively neighbourhood with a residential and business mix and a bustling art scene. Over 50 art galleries (10% of all those in London) operate here. The numerous media companies based in the area feed into a trendy and vibrant buzz.

Fitzrovia has more restaurants than you'll ever get to visit (with new ones popping up all the time). Michelin stars, British pub grub, easy Italians and sandwich shops. fish n chips, Peruvian cuisine, Chinese, Greek, Indian, Mexican, Filipino. We've got them all and everything in between.

If you fancy a bit of home cooking, several supermarkets are close by (including a good Sainsburys, Tescos, Marks and Spencers Food Hall, Waitrose and Planet Organic). There's even a farmers' market not too far away.

Tourist London is easily accessible on foot or by tube.

The local area is buzzing but the flat is in a quiet street so you get the best of both worlds. For entertainment, you have Theatreland close by, numerous cinemas, comedy clubs, late night bars, dancing and nightclubs.

If shopping appeals, you can shop till you drop in nearby Oxford Street, Regent Street, Covent Garden, Carnaby Street, Camden Market and Bond Street. They are all a walk away.

For outside life, neighbouring Fitzroy Square is a peaceful and pleasant place to enjoy a sandwich and watch the world go by.

Alternatively, it's a 10 minute walk to Regent's Park, a wonderful 410-acre open space offering stylish gardens with cafés, rose and wildlife gardens, a boating lake, sports facilities, an open-air theatre and zoo.

Why Liz chose Fitzrovia

The local area is buzzing but the flat is in a quiet street so you get the best of both worlds. There’s a huge array of bars and restaurants in the area, including in nearby Charlotte Street and neighboring Soho. For entertainment, you have Theatreland close by, numerous cinemas, comedy clubs, late night bars, dancing and nightclubs. If shopping appeals, you can shop till you drop in nearby Oxford Street, Regent Street, Covent Garden, Carnaby Street, Camden Market and Bond Street. They are all a walk away. For outside life, neighboring Fitzroy Square is a peaceful and pleasant place to enjoy a sandwich and watch the world go by. Alternatively, it’s a 10 minute walk to Regent’s Park, a wonderful 410-acre open space offering stylish gardens with cafés, rose and wildlife gardens, a boating lake, sports facilities, an open-air theatre and zoo.

Comfortable, well situated

  • 4 of 5

Enjoyed our stay here. Very nice flat. For two single people, it worked out well with one bedroom and minimal set up and take down of couch bed in main living area. Had everything we needed for comfortable stay. Centrally located, it was easy to see and get to everything we wanted to do. Good array of stores and restaurants near by.

Centralized & Comfortable

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I had a very comfortable 4 night stay at this centrally located flat. We loved how convenient it was to get to anything in London, by foot or via the tube, and there are many shops and restaurants in close proximity. Bed was comfortable and the flat served as a quiet home base during our stay. Only two minor comments: the school building next door mentioned by previous reviewers was dark our first two nights and it was really noticeable to me when the lights were on late the last two nights (but it didn’t bother my husband at all). The only other thing we would have liked was a couple more towels rather than just one towel per person for our stay. Other than those two minor things, Liz was an excellent hostess, providing tons of comprehensive info on everything from accessing the building to running appliances and nearby dining options. Neighborhood felt extremely safe and Liz and her staff were super communicative and responsive when we arrived to find the shower out of order. Will definitely consider this as an option next time we are in London and recommend without reservation. Thanks for a wonderful stay!

Wonderful stay in central London

  • 5 of 5

We had a great 5 day stay at this super clean and pretty appartment. Perfect for a couple or a couple with a young child. There are many cafes and grocery within a few minutes walk and it’s situated perfectly by two tube stops that give you access to all of London. And less than 15 minutes by tube from St. Pancreas station and Victoria station. The kitchen is perfect if you want to cook too, and the host is absolutely fabulous. We would definitely return!

Great apartment in non-tourist neighborhood!!

  • 5 of 5

This sweet apartment is just as the pictures show - very clean, super comfortable & with a well appointed kitchen. And having a king sized bed in London is an extra treat! As other reviews have stated, there is no view out the windows (office building just across a small courtyard). They do leave their lights on til midnight & even with black out shades there is some light that gets in. Didn't bother us, but if you're sensitive to light might want to have a sleep mask.

The neighbor is great - lots of good pubs, grocery shops & easy access to tube and many buses, although so many sights within walking distance.

Liz is one of the most helpful hostesses I've ever had - she sends a very thorough handbook before your arrival with lots of info that came in handy & helped us plan our visit. She responded to any communication very promptly.

I would stay here again in a heartbeat!

That being said, be warned that there is construction in the building next door. Banging & drilling starts at 8 AM on workdays. This wasn't a problem for us as we like to get up & out early. It was an issue the day we arrived from overseas and wanted to sleep in the afternoon.

But I realize this is out of Liz's control.

Owner's Response: Thanks Kim. I am glad you enjoyed your stay. This property is usually one of the quietest as it is at the rear of the property, away from the street. I'm sorry your trip coincided with the refurbishment that was happening in the basement. The rent was reduced during this period. The project is now over, so the noise has finished. We hope to have the pleasure of welcoming you back on a future occasion. Warmly, Liz

Great spot to stay in London!

  • 5 of 5

This property is as described in its listing. It's central to most everything in London w/easy access to underground and buses to take you further out. The apartment is clean, tidy, quiet and safe. We (seniors) had no problem/worries walking home late at night. It does look directly out to a business/school setting but the curtains/shades take care of that issue. Liz' instructions are very thorough and if you follow them you will have no problem accessing the apartment, running the appliances and having your deposit refunded. When we return to London, we will definitely look to stay here again.
