Wonderful, spacious, clean, and modern flat!

  • 5 of 5

Our stay was excellent! The flat is spacious, clean, and had everything we needed. We stayed for seven nights with 3 people, then 5 people for the last two nights. When we arrived, Anna and Stephen greeted us and showed us around the flat. They were available for anything we needed (frankly, we didn't need anything because everything went smoothly). We cooked dinners in the flat and found it to be well equipped. The refrigerator was full size and there were plenty of dishes and cutlery available. The bedrooms were spacious and the bathrooms were clean and modern. The WiFi was fast (recently updated). We used the washer and dryer every day and were very glad to have it available. The location is excellent - a short walk to Russell Square tube station, grocery stores, and Pret! We really felt like we were living in London for a week rather than staying in London thanks to this nice flat and all that it offered. We return to London every few years and we will definitely look into staying here again. Thanks Anna and Stephen!

Clean and convenient apartment

This apartment was perfect for our family of 6. We were just steps from the trains, shopping and great restaurants. I felt safe and welcome. Thanks, Anna!

Amazing Flat, Perfect Fit and Location

  • 5 of 5

This flat was pristine for our arrival. We had a group of 6 adults and given the length of our stay (4 nights) it was just the right size. The location in the neighborhood was great, we were in close distance to some great pubs, shopping, and the tube which allowed for very easy exploring of the city. I would book this flat again without hesitation and I plan to recommend it to any friends or family I have traveling to London in the future. :)

Guestbook comments from the owner

Lara’s flat was terrific, my wife had meetings at UCL and it was super convenient.



Lara was very thorough, and reliable, met me at the flat at an awfully late hour, and returned my damage deposit via wire transfer in a timely manner. All in all, if you need a comfortable base in central London, you can’t ask for a better spot. It is supremely quiet, and I felt entirely safe leaving my 11 year old daughter there for periods of time. She was also helpful with other advice, and you should have no fears.



Enjoy your visit to London!
