About This Listing
Affordable little place right in the heart of London. Be in the middle of all the happenings - save your money and time travelling to places. Perfect for the out-and-about traveller! See pictures and read captions to get an idea of the flat's area.
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 for 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!
Great location. Easy access to all of London. You practically live in the middle of theatre land. Easy walk to the tube. Be aware, there is a lot of noise from the city, so bring earplugs. We needed a room to stay in for the night and this place fully lived up to the description on airbnb. Ohh there is wifi as well.
Room is clean and essential, perfect for a short stay! thanks!
Allen lives only a few minutes away from the flat so he was punctual in the meeting. He was an easy going guy and went through a few house rules which was fine. The room has the basics you need such as mugs and hairdryers with shampoos. The living area is shared with a lovely old lady who rarely uses it apart from for cooking food. Overall it's good value for the location and the room. Will definitely visit again.
It's a great location - right in the centre of it all. Clean and comfortable room. Allen was very helpful and easy to reach. All in all very recommendable! Hope to stay there sometime in the future.
I've stayed here for 6 weeks and Allen is a fab host and nice guy . Place is just what you need right at the heart of London . Heed allens advice though and bring ear plugs .
GREAT LOCATION! This was exactly what I needed, just a place to sleep in the busy part of town. I enjoy hearing the street sounds from outside so this was perfect for what I wanted. Walking distance from two major tube stations. Allen was accommodating and helpful.
Things to note:
-The bathroom and living room/kitchen area is shared with a very nice woman who lives next door
-The window in the room faces out to the busy street so there is noise coming in
-The shower is small, but that's to be expected in London. I'm 5'10 and found it a little tight, but nothing that wasn't do-able
-There is no lift and so you must carry all your things up a few flights of stairs. Again, not a problem but good to note in case you are carrying heavy luggage.
So glad we picked this apartment!
Best location, so easy to get to places. Room was clean, and cozy as described!
Allen was very helpful, cannot thank him enough for helping us.
Highly recommend this room and will definitely stay here again during the next visit to London! (:
