About this listing
Staying in my place is absolutely amazing. It combines exceptional location, comfort & style. It's close to most London's spots, cosy, warm & it has everything you need to enjoy indoors, incl. piano bar, big plasma Cable TV, Wifi & a rainfall shower.
Thank you for your interest to become my guest.
If you found the dates you required available, you are very lucky, cause my flat is fantastic.
If you are reading this description, you must've found it interesting and it fits your budget.
And that's exactly what it is.
Although it was considered one of the best 1 bedroom flat of it's size by Camden Local Authority, it's still not perfect and it hasn't got the standards of a 5* hotel.
It is well looked after, stylish, clean and it has everything you need.
It's also very safe with smoke alarm and no prior records of robberies.
So, it's undoubtedly one of or maybe the best of its kind.

Well, most of my guests do appreciate having a nice place like this to stay in London. Everyone have different tastes, so there are always the ones who seem to forget that in Airbnb you are offered to live in other people's homes and step in their life style.
Follow your own instincts and don't miss an opportunity to stay in this great space.

The beginning of our stay was not easy. Adriana sent me a text message on the morning of the same day of our arrival letting me know that someone else was delivering the keys. In general everything would have been OK if we had known with more time what was happening. Coming from outside the UK I had to use my cellphone and pay roaming charges because we had to communicate via SMS and even made a call in order to be sure that the person who was giving us the keys was indeed going to, he arrived 30 minutes late and never replied to any of our messages, neither Adriana who was away. We can understand the situation but there was enough time prior to our arrival for this to be sorted via email.
However, some previous reviews had complained about bad water pressure in the shower, but we found that there was a new showerhead, that was a nice surprise!
Adriana later checked if we were OK or needed any assistance. We stayed for four days and overall it was a very good experience. I used to live on the same street; it’s such a great location and made me feel at home.
I am sorry to hear that you felt that our communication was bad.
I totally thought the opposite way, but I will take note of your concerns, like I do with every guest to make improvements.
Having said that, I need to express that Some of it sounded unfair, as I never mentioned in our messages that I was going to be in my flat in person the give you the keys.
My place is only available when I'm away as I haven't got another place to live.
So, my check -ins have to be arranged.
As it was on a Sunday Evening and during the time I was busy with preparations of my wedding abroad, it was a bit more tricky.
Anyway, I am happy you were comfortable and safe.
Adriana was a very good host. Although we did not meet in person, she was always on everything. Dealing with a fused light bulb, arranging the the check in and check out… The apartment was clean and comfy, with a large wardrobe empty for all my stuff. Great bed with a large TV. The apartment is placed in a quiet street next to one of the trendiest streets in the zone and near to the tube station. Great experience in general!
This is the place to be if you're visiting London as a tourist: it's so central that you can walk to most attractions (if you're fit) otherwise the major attractions and theaters are just one or 2 stops away. Warren Street Underground is less than 5 minutes away and Euston Square is a few minutes' walk further.
The elegant black and white decor speaks of a house-proud owner and the website description is a good reflection of the apartment - it is small, but fine if you just use it as a resting base during your travels. Like all homes it has one or two things that require attention, but you won't be staying here if you preferred 5 star hotel accommodation with a fancy lobby.
Lovely restaurants in the area (divine ox cheek at the Spanish Sabrina, and a warm welcome from the Indian family at Agra) and good pubs on every corner. The Fitzroy Tavern in Charlotte street - the historic writers' waterhole that gave the area its name - offers very affordable beers and food. Pret a manger with healthy take-out food is very close, just round the corner from a Tesco and Sainsbury. Therefore, a good area to stay in.
Adriana seems kind and regularly checked if we were OK or needed any assistance, even though she was on assignment in Brazil.
My husband and I (both in our 60's) enjoyed staying in this apartment, which indeed has fast wi-fi!
Thanks Adriana for a great stay in your flat. It’s such a great location and convenient to all of the West End. It’s really comfortable and I appreciated you being only a text away when I had a few questions. Thanks again. I wouldn’t hesitate to stay there again.
The flat was small but presentable. It was very centrally located. You could walk to most of London's famous sites. Tube stations, buses, markets and restaurants are nearby. Adriana was charming and when we had issues she was available to address them. The flat was equipped with a washer/dryer which was ver handy.
Nuestra experiencia en el apartamento de Adriana fue EXCELENTE. El apartamento es lo suficientemente amplio para dos personas, es cómodo y tiene todo lo que uno necesita. El barrio es espectacular. Es tranquilo y limpio. Y lo mejor de todo es que estas en pleno centro, a 5 minutos caminando de una estación de metro, hay un supermercado Tesco a una cuadra, hay un cajero y muchos restaurantes. Los vecinos que vimos fueron todos muy amables.
La seguridad también es excelente. Nos pasó de dejar las ventanas abiertas sin querer, y nunca paso nada.
Con respecto a Adriana, ella se puso 100% a disposición nuestra para hacer nuestra estadia la mejor posible. Siempre estuvo atenta a todo lo que necesitábamos. Estábamos comunicadas las 24hs via Whatsap. Solo tuvimos un problema un día con el agua caliente, pero ella respondió de inmediato. Al final el problema había sido nuestra culpa. Ademas ella nos recomendó muy bueno lugares para visitar.
This is a great flat. Small but enough space for a couple. It is in the perfect location, close (walkable or a short tube ride) to several London attractions. Lots of restaurants, coffee shops and pubs in walking distance, however still quiet at night with the windows open since there is no A/C. Adriana was easy to work with, she promptly responded to questions and made our stay stress- free.
