About This Listing
My place offers a unique combination of exceptional location, comfort and style. It's close to all tourist spots, cosy, warm and it has absolutely everything you need and enjoy, including a piano bar, a big plasma TV/Cable&DVD and a lovely bedroom.
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.

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.
I stayed in Adriana's flat for a month while in London on a business trip. Following are my candid impressions and experience from good to bad.
The location of the flat is very good as you're in the West End where there is a lot going on and you're within walking distance of great sites and restaurants. The flat is a good value given the location.
Adriana is nice and was there when I arrived; although it was a pretty quick hand-off.
The building lobby is very dated inside and marginally maintained. Other reviewers commented on the poor condition of the stairs. This is accurate.
The flat is very small but probably reasonable given the location.
The kitchen is functional but minimally stocked with cookware, so be aware if you plan to cook much. I bought and left behind a decent knife and French coffee press since I consider these kitchen essentials.
I didn't really spend any time in the living room since the TV is in the bedroom and the living room is small.
The TV is a nice larger version but is high on the bedroom wall so can only be watched from the bed. I did buy an HDMI cable for my iPad and used it to watch Netflix on the TV so that worked out well.
The bed was comfortable but the sheets had a burn whole in them so that made me uncomfortable.
Adriana made some space in the wardrobe for me but I definitely felt like I was infringing on her space there.
There was a lot of her personal stuff throughout the flat which I had to move out of the way to make a place for my things.
Finally the bathroom... I understand London is notorious for bad water pressure but the shower head was so plugged from hard water build-up that it was difficult to take a decent shower. I actually went on a search to buy a new high pressure shower head but that's a story for another time... Suffice to say I didn't find one.
