We had a perfect 8 day stay at this wonderful apartment. I would definitely go back. Lucy is a great host, the apartment is well equipped and the location is great. What I loved the most was the underfloor heating in the bathroom.
Wonderful flat in a great location. Very comfortable and well located stay for a week's business trip. Will definitely come again.
I had a fantastic couple of months staying here. It's a lovely apartment in a great part of London.
Lucy's apartment was perfect! Clean, confortable, excellent location, full equipeted. (the shower is amazing). Super recommended!
Lucy's home was not only beautiful and spacious but in a fabulous area so close to the heart of London. This is a home away from home - I'll really miss being there. This is a space that is instantly relaxing, with all the necessary mod cons, wi-fi and the bonus of an out door area and garden to enjoy. Lucy, is an excellent host, communicating promptly and efficiently, and amenable to all your needs. Highly recommended! Thank you again!
Absolutely adored Lucy's apartment. Cute as can be. It's centrally located, a five minute walk from Russel Square underground station, which takes you directly to and from Heathrow. It's a 10 minute walk to Farringdon station, which basically gives you access to all of London. It's perfect for foodies and, especially, coffee geeks. It's near some of the best specialty coffee shops in London like Workshop Coffee, Espresso Room, and Prufrock Coffee. There's a 24/7 grocery a few blocks away as well. The flat has everything you could need, including a super cute patio. The bathroom is awesome and clean. The bed is a little soft so it wasn't ideal for someone like me with a poor back but I slept very well nonetheless. The flat is near many universities so it can get loud at night but overall I wouldn't hesitate to stay at Lucy's flat again.
We had a terrific, long (6-week) stay in Lucy's flat during June and July 2013. The flat looks exactly as pictured; it is very nice, quite large, comfortable, with lots of light from the large windows. Kitchen and bathroom are great, and there is a small but very usable outdoor garden/patio. There was an extended heat wave during our visit, but the temperature in the flat stayed comfortable, especially on the lower floor where the bedroom is located. The flat is quiet, too. No problems with loud street or neighbor noise.
A few other things: We liked the location. Plenty of good pubs/restaurants within walking distance, including Exmouth Market. Transit was also good. The flat is fairly close to Russell Square tube, but we mostly used the bus. Three buses stop just around the corner from the flat, with quick access to St. Pancras for Eurostar, to the City of London, and to other transit connections. Lucy and Anna (who handled check-out) were easy to reach and very responsive on the few occasions we needed something. I would happily stay here again. In fact, if the flat is available on my next trip to London, I probably wouldn't bother looking anywhere else.
I stayed at Lucy's for a week. Regarding the apartment:
Perfect and safe location within walking distance to Russell Square Station, SOAS, and British Museum. But even the Thames River can be reached by an easy 20-30 min walk.
The apartment is clean and has everything one needs for a short or even prolonged stay, including washer and dryer, reliable high-speed internet and TV (including Netflix).
I would definitely return!
We agree with all previous previews! Perfectly decorated apartment in nice area.
I stayed one month at Lucy's wonderful apartment... I guess the best thing I can say about it and would be enough to explain all is that I felt as if I was at my place since I first walked in the apartment. But since saying only this is not enough to describe all the good things about this apartment I will have to say more....
Lucy was a great host, despite I did not meet her we were always in touch and any problem Anna, Lucy's friend who gave me the apartment keys, was 24h available. Gladly had no problem.
Concerning the apartment, I have to say it's modern, decorated with very good taste. All the divisions of the house are extremely huge compared to London size and the bathroom with the walk in shower it's amazing.... I miss it already.
The small patio on the back of the house is very cosy and perfect in the warm days.
The Kitchen has everything you might need if you want to cook. The location of the apartment is unbelievable, the neighbourhood is quiet and very good with a perfect supermaket (Waitrose) almost around the corner, and Russel Square is 5 min walk. Covent Garden is a 10 min walk and Oxford Street 25 min walk.. I have to say that I hardly used the tube... which made me save a lot of money since the tube in London is very expensive, but in case you have too the Russel Square station is 5 min away and there is also Chancery Lane Station 10 min away. or King's Cross and Saint Pancras station 15 min away.
What more can I say, let me see there where so many good things about the apartment that made my stay in London perfect. The heating of the apartment is great always walked around the house in t-shirt and shorts.
If you are a coffee lover there is a Costa Café at 10m away from the house, perfect for a morning snack in case you feel to lazy to do it yourself. Every photo shown here is exactly what you will find. The cleaning lady that came every Thursday was superb she left everything shinning and clean.
Well I guess the only bad thing about my experience with Lucy and her apartment is that unfortunately I hadn't the pleasure of meeting her personally, but Anna was also charming and lovely.
Lucy once again thank you so much for everything... I will come back :))))... I miss the apple TV and Netflix with all the series and movies perfect for the rainny days....
