The Space

Having holidays in Central London for money far below the Hotel prices is now possible. We 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.

The Neighborhood

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!

Getting around

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 (email hidden) 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 our other listing. :)

Hope to see you soon in London, feel free to contact and book at all times!

  • Tight on space for 3 guests (would be perfect for 2), (email hidden) to stay in the city-- would stay again! Allen (email hidden) and responded very promptly to all messages. He even helped with our luggage when he showed us the flat. The place was very clean and secure, and the location can't be beat!!! It was a quick walk to great restaurants, pubs, and the best Chinese bakeries in the city, as well as the major London attractions. Thanks for hosting us!

  • Allen was very nice and responsive. He provided towels when we asked, met us promptly when he said he would.

    I think, reading some of this listing's negative reviews, that most people have unrealistic expectations about the flat, or don't read the reviews or description before they book. This flat is very basic. It is a place to sleep, shower, and maybe have a cup of tea. There is no fridge, no cookware.

    There is, however, wifi and an amazing location right in London's Chinatown. Very convenient to transport and the tube.

    I thought the place was fine. It could have been cleaner (there was a lot of dust, it was obvious that whoever cleans the place in between tenants doesn't try to clean those hard-to-reach places). The bed is pretty worn out; it is basically shaped like a letter U at this point. However, those were the only negatives. Otherwise, I have no complaints.

  • Me and my friend spent three days at the apartment last week. We had an amazing time in the center of London. The apartment was clean and Allen was very friendly and hospitable, even when we broke the key accidentelly :-). The location of the apartment is perfect and many highlights of the city are within walking distance. We only missed the fridge, but that's ok if you only stay for a few days!
    Thank you Allen!

  • Allen was a very good host. He was responsive and helpful when we arrived.

    The location of the flat is fantastic. I really think it would be hard to find a more convenient spot. Really close to a tube station that will take you direct to/from heathrow as well as basically anywhere in the city. You can also walk to basically anything (I rarely used the tube when i was there).

    The place is very small, but fine for 2 people. Very clean. Comfortable bed. The only real drawback i found was the kitchen (or lack thereof). There is a microwave and a tea kettle, that's it. No fridge, stove or anything. Also no table. So if you are hoping to cook/ eat in at all this is probably not the place for you.

    All in all i would recommend the flat.

  • Allen was very nice and professional. He met us when he said he would and his directions were 100%. The photos show the flat accurately.

  • Awesome neighborhood, walking distance to a lot of things and if not, you're on a central tube line. The apartment is as described, definitely optimized for 2 people but we were 3 of us and had no issues. Works very well for short/medium term visits to London. Allen was great about meeting us for check-in and was flexible with holding our bags until our hour of departure. Would definitely stay here again!

  • (email hidden) to stay for our first London getaway. Allen (email hidden), easily contactable and prompt. I need to thank Allen personally as he carried my very heavy language up to the apartment for me. When we first started looking in London for accommodation we were mainly searching for a good central location. This apartment couldn't be more central for a tourist. The noise levels were quite low considering the amount of action taking place around the apartments. The apartment was tclean and tidy and exactly what we were looking for. Would definently stay and recommend Allen's apartment .
    Thanks heaps Allen.

Always busy at work during the week. Love quiet nights in and enjoy travelling whenever I get the chance. If not, a trip down the local coffee shop will do.
