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.

GETTING AROUND

You can walk to tourist London or take numerous transport options close by.

Our closest tubes are Warren Street, Goodge Street, Euston Square (all within 5 minute walk) and Tottenham Court Road and St Pancras (within a 10 minute walk)

Being so central, you can walk to all of tourist London. The British Museum is 10 minutes away. You've got Oxford Street / Soho very close by (a 10 minute walk), Covent Garden will take you about 15 minutes, Regent's Park about 10-15 minutes. Camden is a 5 minute bus ride. You can head in any direction and arrive somewhere interesting.

Numerous buses stop close by in Tottenham Court Road, Gower Street and Euston Road

You are in easy reach of all the sights.

Leicester Square and Trafalgar Square are an interesting 20 minute walk through Soho. Or just jump on the Northern line tube from Warren Street or Goodge Street and you'll be there in under 5 minutes.

Buckingham Palace is a 30 minute walk or a quick hop on the Victoria line (Warren Street through to Victoria @ 5 mins) or stop off at Green Park and enjoy the walk across one of London's famous parks to the palace.

The Northern line from Goodge Street takes you to Embankment in 5 minutes. From there you can walk along the river (5 mins) to Big Ben, the Houses of Parliament and Westminster Abbey. Or catch the boat from Embankment along to the Tower of London or Greenwich. Walk across the footbridge to the London Eye and Southbank (or keep going one more stop on the tube to Waterloo).

About Liz

We are Liz and Jack. We look forward to welcoming you to London. We manage a number of holiday let properties in Fitzrovia, central London, as well as many long let properties. We know the area well and can thoroughly recommend it for its central location, great transport links (although you'll probably be mostly on foot as tourist London is very walkable!) and wide choice of bars and restaurants. It's a highly desirable neighbourhood with beautiful architecture and interesting streets. People come from all over London to enjoy some Fitzrovia life. We're lucky enough to be based here and hope to see you here too! We have been letting our properties for over 10 years. We hope we've perfected a warm and professional welcome. We're very happy to help with questions (before or during your stay) or to tailor any trip to suit your needs so just let us know if there's anything we can do. We look forward to seeing you in London!

Great place to stay in London!

  • 5 of 5

The best apartment for an intensive visit to London: great location, very clean and comfortable beds, quite and safe. For us, touring the city all day long, it was the right place to stay! The apartment is quit small with no view so it is not the place for someone who wants to enjoy the city from home. It is the right place for going out in the morning, supermarkets and shops are very near as well as transportation and very easy to come back even walking from the SOHO area.

Owner's Response: Thanks. So glad you enjoyed. It was a pleasure welcoming you. Like many places in the middle of a City, we don't have a view but you're right, we're right in the heart of it all but without the noise - that's the benefit of not overlooking the street. It sounds like you made the most of your time here - lovely! We hope to welcome you back on a future occasion.

Convenient Location

  • 5 of 5

The apartment looks very much like the photos, and I actually felt like there was more space than anticipated. It is a simple but nice inner city flat with a secured front door to the building. Between Warren and Euston Square stations, we could reach most everything. We also used Goodge and Euston train station at times. It's so centrally located to shops, restaurants, and tubes! It felt like a safe area, which was most important as a woman traveler with a daughter. We slept comfortably, but had to open windows since there was a hot spell - outside the window seemed safe enough, and the windows only open a bit, but I'm always nervous sleeping with open windows. In any case, there were fans as well so we were comfortable during the hot week. Having a washer is key to an extended stay, and this one was easy to use. I wish there was a drying line for air dry clothes, but the washer also had a dry cycle. The kitchen was a bit small for eating meals, but it was adequately stocked. The owner was on hand for anything we might need. We ran out of toilet paper the last day, and wish we had extra towels. Otherwise it served us quite well, and we would recommend this place to anyone! We were there just over a week, and my daughter hated to leave.

Owner's Response: Thanks very much for staying with us. I'm glad you enjoyed the apartment. It was a pleasure helping with your trip. The windows have locks on them so, if you release the catch, they do open wider but as you say that's not always necessary. It's a cool apartment even in hot weather. There's no drying line but there is a clothes airer, or you can use the dryer function on the washing machine. If you mention extra towels next time, we're happy to help. We hope to welcome you back on a future occasion. Warmly, Liz

Excellent London flat for our stay

  • 5 of 5

The flat was perfect for our stay in London. Since it was in the Fitzrovia area of London, it was conveniently within walking distance to many of the things we wanted to see, not to mention great restaurants in the neighborhood. When we wanted to get to other places, there were at least 3 tube stops close by. The flat itself was clean, efficient, and very comfortable. With a clothes washer dryer, kitchenette, ironing board and iron, wi-fi, TV, etc, we had everything we needed. The only drawback was that there was no air conditioning during the historic London heatwave at the time we were there. But there were many fans available that cooled down the flat in the evening and made the sleeping quite nice. Liz was wonderful to work with, was most helpful answering our questions and providing clear instructions as to our use of the flat. If we are again in London, I would not hesitate to make the same accommodations again.

Excellent!

  • 5 of 5

The location of this apartment was perfect for the things we had planned in London. Lots of restaurants, pubs and groceries in the area. It was also close to several different underground lines. It was very hot in London during our stay but with just a fan going, some of the time, we were quite comfortable. I would highly recommend this property.

Fabulous apartment

  • 5 of 5

My eighteen year old son and I stayed for 5 nights here while we toured. The apartment is lovely and well-maintained. From the time I expressed interest through booking, planning, arriving and leaving, communication with the owner was excellent. A booklet is in the apartment containing information regarding appliances to recommendations. Very short walk to the metro and grocery stores, shops and restaurants in the area. Should we return in the future, I would plan my stay around this apartment being available.
