Great apartment to see London

  • 4 of 5

Our second stay at Samantha apartment and we really enjoyed it. It is a small bright modern apartment with all you need for a comfortable stay in London. Great central location, you can walk to Soho, the Theater district, Oxford St. the British Museum, etc. A Tube station is at the end of the street. Convenient supermarket, many restaurants and shops close by. Samantha is a helpful welcoming host. We hope to stay there again in the future.

There are are two floors of stairs with no lift which could be a difficulty if you are physically impaired; we are in our 80s and had no problem.

Excellant Location and nice unit

  • 5 of 5

Samatha was great, met me at the unit and gave me the tour. Nice unit, very clean, good bed, and good space. In back of the building so it is quiet. Small kitchen, but very usable. I only used it once because this is a great location for food spots on the street. Different one every night. I would stay here again.

Excellent accommodation!

  • 5 of 5

Overall, would highly recommend this apartment, as it offers tremendous value for the rate. The apartment itself is bright and clean. The bed is very comfortable. The kitchen was stocked with cutlery, cooking utensils (frying pans, etc) and plates, bowls, glasses, etc, which was great for making breakfast and heading out to do some sight-seeing. Samantha was prudent in responding to our emails before arrival, providing detailed instructions on how to get to the apartment from the airport, and for meeting us at the apartment on time. The location of the apartment is fantastic. 2 minute walk to the Goodge St. tube station and only a 10-15 minute walk to Piccadilly Circus and Trafalgar Square. There are good pubs and a grocery store just outside the apartment. Definitely book this flat if you're visiting London for sightseeing and are seeking great value for your money.

Excellent all-around HomeAway!

  • 5 of 5

An ideal central London location, everything needed within a few blocks of the flat, and a short walk to the Tube. Samantha was very helpful and responsive to our needs. We would definitely stay here again.

Very nice place in a perfect location!

  • 5 of 5

My daughter and I stayed here for one week in July. The apartment is perfectly sized for two, very clean and very well supplied with all kitchen and bathroom essentials (and extras too). The spacious bedroom has lots of closet space, the bed is very comfortable and linen and towels are of a very good quality. The location is excellent; less than 5 minutes from Tottenham Court Road, and walking distance to practically anywhere in the West End. The owners were great to deal with; helpful, professional and prompt in (e-mail) answering any questions. We were also happy that Samantha allowed us to store our luggage in the apartment on our departure day as we had a late flight and she even helped us arrange for the transportation to the airport. Thank you!

Comfortable, clean, fantastic location!

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I stayed here over Thanksgiving holiday and everything about our experience was positive. We would definitely stay here again. Overall it’s a comfortable, clean, no-nonsense flat in a fantastic location.

Samantha’s partner Richard was outside the flat to meet us when we arrived and graciously showed us the flat, explained how various things worked and so on. The flat itself is somewhat small (welcome to London, folks!) but not uncomfortably so and has ample room for two. The bed and linens were comfortable as was as the L shaped sofa for hanging out and recalling our day before turning in. The kitchenette is incredibly well-stocked with pots, pans, hob, kettle, fridge, etc. There was even tea, coffee, sugar, salt/pepper and various spices to use. The flat had plenty of hot water and has heaters in every room (other than the bathroom, which is typical) so it was very comfortable in those regards. It’s also on the quiet side of the building (non-street) so sleeping is very restful. It’s worth mentioning the impeccable cleanliness of this flat. You can tell it’s well-cared for and that the owners take the time to make sure it’s clean and comfortable for their guests.

The location is fantastic and, apart from the blissfully clean and comfortable experience of the flat, this is one of the best features. It’s a very short walk to the Tube (Goodge St, Tottenham Court and Oxford Circus) so you have access to three different lines. It’s also a pleasant walk to many central London sites, just a mile or so, which will help work off all that ale from the hundreds (Thousands? Millions?) of pubs surrounding the area. Oxford Street with all the shops is close as well and all the fabulous restaurants in Soho and Chinatown. The nearby Tesco was perfect for basic things like eggs, bread, milk, snacks and other sundry items. There’s a Boots nearby as well, both stores are on the way home from the Goodge St. Tube stop.

We couldn’t have been happier with this property and the experience we had from the initial contact to leaving the key and (regrettably) heading home. Thanks so much Samantha!

Good stuff nearby:

Many, many restaurants

Many, many pubs. Good local ones: One Tun (across the street), The Hope, Marquis of Gramby, Blue Posts, and my favorite, Newman Arms.

The apartment is in Fitzrovia, a West End neighbourhood with historic literary associations. It is an ideal base for exploring Central London, with all the West End theatres, cinemas, shops, galleries and museums nearby. All the key attractions of Soho, Oxford Street, Regent’s Street, Bloomsbury and Covent Garden are within an easy (15 minute) walk. The restaurants and cafes of Charlotte St are on your doorstep. This is a great area for couples of all ages seeking a city break or a central base to explore London. Whether you are looking for culture, clubbing or shopping, it''s all within easy walking distance, and yet the apartment is an oasis from the bustle of the streets. St Pancras station (for the Eurostar) is 4km/3miles away. Goodge St Underground station and buses are 2 mins walk. Proximity to three major Universities and a teaching hospital (UCH) also make this apartment ideal for visiting academics.,
