Location is fantastic. If you are looking to hit the shopping of London immediately, this apartment is at an excellent location. It is a walk-up apartment & there are many convenient cafes along the streets. Irish pubs, asian restaurants, you name it. A short walk to Oxford Street, Bond Street, Regents Street, Leicester Square, Soho, Trafalgar Square, Regents Park, Mayfair and even King's Cross and Euston and it's very easy to get a bus to Paddington if you are coming from Heathrow airport. Most of the tourist sites are walking distance including the British Museum, Regents Park, National Gallery, Trafalgar Square, Leicester Square and Buckingham Palace.
If you wish to arrive or depart earlier or later than it is designated here, please contact me and we will work something out. I had to change my policy due to another guest who abused the word "flexible". I apologize on his behalf.
Interaction with Guests
There is a 30 GBP extra payment for arrivals after 10pm (22:00) which represents the cost for the taxi for the person who will be at the apartment to hand you the keys and you pay him/her cash on the spot.
Fitzrovia is itself a quite vibrant neighborhood with Charlotte street having first class restaurants and bars. Fitzrovia boasts a very large concentration of boutique art galleries as well. Access into the Fitzroy garden is only from 12-2pm during summertime and it is shut for winter.
Public Transport - Because of our central location you have numerous underground stations to choose from (Warren Street, Goodge Street, Great Portland Street, Euston) All of which are a 5 minute walk away. Several bus routes and obviously 24 hour taxis.
We suggest the following way using public transportation:
Get the Picadilly line from Heathrow until Green Park and then change to Victoria line north and get out to Warren str.
The flat is in the second floor, without elevator, narrow stairs
Other Things to Note
NOTICE NOTICE NOTICE NOTICE
On Saturday noon, April 28th, 2012 I had an issue with the boiler in the apartment. I paid back in full the guest who stayed in the apartment during the incident, and I called a technician to be at the apartment first thing in Monday morning. He didn't appear on time, the other guest was busy so we moved everything for the next day. I was told that I need to change the boiler and I contacted the guest telling him what happened and making sure that the next guest coming on the 6th won't have troubles.
Most likely the problem at the apartment will be fixed before my next guest but I didn't want to ruin anyone's vacation. So until I am sure that it will be fixed, I will make sure that I won't destroy their vacation due to a broke down boiler. For that reason, I had to cancel all "near" reservations
This is how i would like someone to deal with me as a guest, if one was in my shoes, so I did the same.
Keeping the flat tidy please. Smoking inside is not allowed. You will need to sign a check-in check out form which states all the things that exist on the apartment. Report any damages immediately so we can deal with it promptly. Have fun and enjoy the apartment and London !!!
Check-in and check-out was very simple. Plenty of information about how to arrive and find the place. Located on a quiet street but very central with easy access to three tube stations, Soho, Regent's Park, etc. The place is small but has all the necessary items and was a comfortable stay.
Mak was excellent in communicating with me. I had a special request and he did not hesitate in honoring my request which was an enormous help for me. The flat is central and within walking distance on Regents Park, 3 main Underground stations and Oxford Street and Regent Streets and buses to victoria, Kings Cross and paddington. Thank you Mak for a comfy stay.

Very cute apartment. We had some difficulty contacting Mak because our mobile phone could not call outside of the UK but eventually we called the actual apartment and got in touch with an associate of Mak (Make sure your mobile phone works when on holiday). Also, Mak was very quick to respond to our emails. The apartment itself was mostly clean. The apartment has everything you would need including umbrellas, several UK to European converters, irons and an ironing board, water boiler, towels and sheets. We were very happy with our stay here. The location is awesome! We loved the neighborhood and found that there were a lot of cafes and restaurants that were affordable. Overall, we would recommend this property to friends and would return again!
We found our stay comfortable and as advertised. The studio apt. was clean and bright on a nice street very well located for our needs. The transition in and out was smooth and communication with Mak was fine and friendly.
A good studio located at Fitzrovia,2-3 mins walk to tube station.
The studio is really nice,you could find all kitchen items in flat.All equipment are in good order.
We are sure that we will choose Mak's flat again when we visit London next time.
Great apartment, great location! We were greeted soon after we arrived by the caretaker. The apartment was clean and cozy. There are power adapters, which was convenient for us. Good restaurants close by and only few minutes walk to the underground.
