Roxy is for those who like being in the middle of things - this isn't a quiet country lane, this is the centre of London with people, culture, excitement, noises, and bright lights. It can be busy outside but the windows are sound insulated and most guests are surprised by how quiet the apartment is. There is a Hilton hotel being built next door, but this is largely complete and (as you can see in the reviews) is not normally noisy.
Please note there is no allocated parking but with at least 1 week's notice we can get you daytime on-street parking on the street for £5 a day Monday - Saturday.
Check-in is normally 12:00pm and check-out is 12:00pm, but times can be flexible. Drop us a message if the current ones don't work for you.
An Oyster card saves money on single journeys and has a price cap of around £7 for central London. The TFL website has all the info.
Get the train from Gatwick to Blackfriars station. Leave Blackfriars station on the south side of the river, and it's a 5 minute walk to the flat.

Buses are great! We highly recommend the RV1, which goes from outside the front door. One way goes to London Eye, Houses of Parliament, and Covent Garden, the other way goes to Borough Market, London Bridge, Tower Bridge and Tower of London. It's a cheap but too!
You'll need an Oyster card to travel around London, or a credit or debit card with contactless payment. Or maybe even mobile phone payments. Either way, buses don't take cash anymore.
Other Things to Note
The cleaning fee is for the bedding and towels; we provide them and they do not need to be cleaned at the end of your stay.
As you get the entire apartment, we do our best to stay out of the way and give you your privacy. There might be occasions when we need access to the apartment and we will give you as much notice as possible. We ask that you keep the place relatively tidy during your stay.
No smoking, parties or pets, and please take your shoes off inside.
Check in is normally 12pm or after and check out at 12pm, but we can make exceptions if you get in touch before booking.
On check out please make sure all the rubbish is taken outside and all cups, glasses, plates and cutlery are clean, dry and put back away in the cupboards.
The trash goes under the tree outside, at any time of day or night. Please take it out when you go.
If you have any problems then just get in touch and we'll do what we can to sort them out. If you break anything, just tell us. C'est la vie - but it helps us if we know we need to replace anything.
Please also let us know in advance if you need more than 1 set of keys.
Treat it like your own home - let's keep it simple!
