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 medium spacious double bedroom to offer in a 2 bed flat 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 room is a good size for 2 persons and has double bed in it. There is also 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 living space and WC is shared with a very respectable and friendly lady.
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 licensed taxis on Shaftesbury Avenue (1min walk), 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. Also, the flat is on the 3rd 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 times (same as most hotels in London). Towels provided upon request. If you want total privacy, please consider my other listing which is the same location. :)
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. 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 has
n'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!
The location is perfect. It's close to everything for a first time London experience. Allen is a great host. I locked myself out of the room at 2:00 in the morning and he came and rescued me. It is a very basic room but that is precisely what I need for my very short stay.
We were happy to stay in Allens room/flat in the central SOHO that is as described and Allen is professional and easy to interact with.
The room was small but comfortable. It got a little cold at night. But overall a great place to stay. Allen was very good.
Allen was a nice chap! Room was basic, but flat had all the essentials. Great location!
Very friendly, a warm and cosy place close to all the fun. Clean and looked after. Nice n secure. Clear instructions on how to get in and out etc - I'd stay again :)
Allen s'est montré très réactif, il a répondu rapidement à notre demande de réservation (ainsi qu'aux questions que l'on se posait avant d'arriver sur les lieux) et nous a fourni autant d'informations que nécessaire (endroits pour sortir le soir, etc.).
L'appartement était propre et le lit très confortable. Serviette et produits de toilette fournis.
Dans la cuisine/salon se trouve une mini bibliothèque qui contient toutes sortes d'ouvrages.
L'appartement est certes bruyant (bruit de la rue et climatisation dans la cour adjacente à la salle de bain) mais il est idéalement situé au coeur de Londres, à deux pas de Picadilly Circus et de Leicester Square.
Merci à Allen pour cette première expérience AirBnb.
The accommodation was very central, but basic as described. Suited me fine for a quick overnight stay. Shared bathroom and kitchen works ok but again is very basic.
Allen is charming and willing, meeting me as arranged and explaining everything.
