Affordable little place right in the heart of London. Be in the middle of all the happenings - save your money and time on public transport. Perfect for the out-and-about traveller!
Having holidays in Central London for money far below the Hotel prices is now possible. I have a nice studio flat to offer located right in the centre of the centre of this great city. Have your own space to relax and rest after a hard day of sightseeing and be back in the middle of the action the next day. The flat has a good-sized bedroom with a double bed and a sofa-bed in it. You also have your own shower/WC, and a basic kitchen (equipped with kettle and microwave only). Access to washing machine can be provided if you are staying for 7 days or more.
Staying here will affect you in terms of having no public transport cost at all. You are located right in the middle of the most vibrant and liveliest area in London, the West End. Almost everything is within minutes walking distance. Mayfair and Soho for clubbing and going out, Covent Garden, Regent Street and Oxford Street for shopping, linked to the usual sights: Leicester Square, Piccadilly Circus, Buckingham Palace, Big Ben and the London Eye. For museum lovers: The British Museum, The National Gallery, Somerset house are all just nearby. There are also countless restaurants, musicals, and theatres surrounding us!
The closest tube stations are Leicester Square and Piccadilly Circus. Both are about 5mins walk away as we are squeezed right in the middle. There are also various bus lines and an unlimited flow of taxis going to any other part of the city to which you desire. Public transport in this area is very convenient.
Other Things to Note
Central London is a busy place and there are people everywhere. So expect some noise. Ear plugs recommended if you are a light-sleeper. The sofa bed for the 3rd person is not the most comfortable thing in the world therefore not highly recommended (but it does the job). Also, the flat is on the 4th floor of a walk-up building and the flat itself isn't that big. So if you are looking for 5-star luxury and space, you have come to the wrong listing. But if all this doesn't really bother you and you mainly want the convenience to stay in the middle of all the happenings, you are more than welcome. The location is perfect for out-and-about travellers.
Please Note: Make sure you are ok with the check-in/out time (same as most hotels in London). Towels provided upon request. If you want the location but are on a strict budget, please consider my other listing. :)
Hope to see you soon in London, feel free to contact and book at all times!
You are not charged for the cleaning to keep the price down, so please look after the flat during your stay. It doesn't mean that you have to do the cleaning yourself/selves. Oh no... Just don't be too messy. Like staying at a friends house. I'm sure you get the idea. Unfortunately, you will be charged with extra cleaning if the place hasn't been loved. :)
Please do not stand/jump on the bed. There were a few broken like this.
Nobody must stay in the flat except those people who booked on Airbnb.
Guests must not introduce strangers to the building.
Please respect other residents in the building by limiting noise when you come and go up the communal staircase.
Please do not smoke in the flat.
Please do not play loud music or otherwise make loud noise.
Please report any breakages before you leave.
Please do not bring animals to the flat.
Please have a great time staying in my wonderful city!
Oh, ONE more:
Please make yourself/selves at home!
Small flat but great location. Easy to find and perfect for a quick stay. Thanks!
The flat was as it was described. We had three people, which it said it would accommodate, but it was very tight. It was fine for us as we were staying only the one night. Bed was comfortable and the place was very clean. Only complaint would be that the towels were very hard and scratchy and didn't have the best smell. We debated showering because of this.
Great little place in a great location, the host was very helpful right from the start, I would stay again
Very convenient location: flat small but clean and friendly. I had a working gig in Soho and it was a very cool choice!
I've booked this flat for my cousin and her husband who were visiting me in London and they only had nice things to say about their stay. Allen was a great host and very easy to communicate to. Flat was in immaculate condition with everything in working order. Location couldn't have been more central and was easy to find. I wouldn't hesitate one bit booking this flat again for any visiting friends or family. Highly recommend it.
I must admit that I knew that Allen's flat would not be like my other experiences with AirBnb, but it was bare minimum at the best. Since all of my other experiences have been very good, as were the hosts, I felt I needed to be very honest with this review for other people to see.
We knew that the flat was on the forth floor, but did not anticipate the smell of cleaners going up the stairwell. Allen insisted that we leave our shoes off before we entered the flat, so we did. The flat was tiny which was not a problem, but the place was far from being clean. The walls were bare, the kitchen cabinets sealed shut, the floor dirty, the bed was actually 2 mattresses with the bottom one being filthy and flat in the middle. The pillows were flat and uncomfortable. The towels that were provided smelled like they were used at the gym earlier and hard on the skin.
Allen kept going on about treating his flat all, but could care less about treating us right. His skill at bring a host was the worst. Look at my other reviews of hosts I have started with and you will see that I have met some really great people using AirBnb, but this experience was a super big let down. It is beyond my understanding why a host could not make his guests stay an enjoyable one, instead of making guests feel like you were renting from a slumlord...
I would never stay at his flat again, and urge you not to either. I don't think that this flat meets the expectations one should have when renting from AirBnb.
Im sorry the flat fell below your expectations. This review deals a real big blow to me as I didn't expect this is how you see my flat and me. As per previous reviews, guests have always described me as nice so I don't know what I did to offend you. And the flat has always been described as small, loud but great location and clean so I am really confused. But feedback noted! I ll look at the things you pointed out. Guess this is the sort of situation where I can't please everyone but I'll do my best.
Have a great one,
The flat was in the perfect location, clean, and had everything that I needed for a great stay in London. Allen had awesome communication and was very helpful in getting me settled in. I'd love to stay here again the next time that I'm in London. A great deal!
