The hallway was also renovated in 2014 and we have provided an umbrella stand with complimentary umbrellas should you get caught out in the rain.
In the hallway there is also a cupboard that houses the cleaning products, mop, bucket, dustpan, brush, etc. There is also an iron and ironing board should you need to use them.
In spring 2014 we will be installing a DVD library in the hallway so guests will be able to choose from a large selection of popular TV and movie DVDs that they can then watch in their bedroom.
There is a newly renovated shared bathroom with top of the range bathroom suite and power shower combination. Our bathroom is kept very clean and tidy with a cleaner coming in on a regular basis to change towels and keep everything top notch.
Interaction with Guests
We are very responsive to e-mail and check our Airbnb account about 3 to 5 times a day – so you are sure of a quick response.
We get a lot of pleasure doing what we do. This is made all the more rewarding by the comments our guests leave behind.
There is a fantastic team of people that work with us. Amos manages this apartment and without his support and dedication I would not be able to provide such a good service to our guests.
Once you have booked the room I will pass on your details to Amos. Amos will then contact you and arrange your check in.
When you arrive at the apartment Amos will meet and greet you and spend about 10 minutes explaining how everything works, it will also give you an opportunity to ask him any questions you may have – Like where is there a great place to eat? Where is the Tourist Information Office? Or where can you buy cheap theatre tickets.
Amos will also give you his contact details so you can contact him anytime should you need any help or assistance.
After check in, guests are given their keys and are welcome to come and go as they please.
We aim to make our place feel like a home away from home.
What I love about being located opposite Piccadilly Underground Station is the fact that you are sandwiched between 6 fantastic 'must see' areas of central London - Soho, Westminster, The West End, Covent Garden, Mayfaire, and St James's
The majority of Londons most popular tourist attractions and all the major theatres are within an easy 10 minute walk – Our place is super central and you shouldn't need to take a tube or bus once you have checked in.
Don't just take our word for it, here is what Airbnb has to say about the surrounding area.
Like Britain’s famous agent, James Bond, this neighborhood leads a double life: Soho’s streets are home to clean-cut record shops and fashionable galleries. Crowds flock to this edgy epicenter to experience its sultry past and trendy present. Soho’s red-light roots and beatnik bastions have steadily transformed into hip public houses, all-night coffee shops, and vintage boutiques that welcome the 24-hour clamor of this cobblestoned neighborhood.
Boasting more than a few London landmarks, Westminster is a distinct political and cultural epicenter. Westminster Abbey, Buckingham Palace (God Save the Queen), and the United Kingdom’s House of Parliament all share the cobblestoned lanes under Big Ben’s timely shadow. Perched along the north bank of the River Thames, Westminster hosts a constant influx of briefcase-carrying policymakers and camera-wielding pedestrians along its endlessly busy-by-day corridors
From its commercial plazas (think Trafalgar Square, Leicester Square, and Piccadilly Circus) to its side streets and back alleys, the West End whirs with unyielding energy. Theatres, shops, pubs, clubs, landmarks, and lounges—no matter how many times you visit, you’ll never see the same neighborhood twice. Constantly evolving, crowds gather in London’s West End by morning, afternoon, and night to absorb a bit of the vibrant lifestyle in a neighborhood that never looks back
Covent Garden’s central square remains this neighborhood’s primary attraction, but its fetching streetscape doesn’t end with its bustling marketplace. Street performers and food stalls share Covent Gardens’ iconic plaza and winding side streets with cheese shops, casual taverns, art museums, and opera houses that cater to those looking for less trafficked locales. You’ll watch, you’ll applaud, and you’ll pay your pocket change to the countless entertainers and diversions in this unyieldingly charming neighborhood
As a neighborhood steeped in sophistication, Mayfair doesn’t have beer pubs and dance clubs—it has wine bars and scotch lounges. Its restaurants are decadent, its buildings impressive, and its streets clean, making Mayfair a sought-after destination for evening strolls. Bounded by iconic Hyde Park to the west and ultra-trendy West End to the east, Mayfair’s noble neighbors increase the appeal of its already enchanting endowments.
As a members-only kind of neighborhood, St. James’s esteemed reputation is upheld by its penchant for finely tailored suits and thick cigar smoke. This neighborhood’s central London location, high-end antique markets, and boundary-pushing galleries solidify its untouchably exclusive mystique. Combine its posh clothiers and grand terraces with its proximity to the oldest Royal Park of London, and the reasoning behind St. James’s prestige, and its exceptional price tags, becomes crystal clear
Fantastic location for buses and underground stations
