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 !!!
Great studio apartment in the heart of everything. 5 min walk from the tube station with lots of restaurants around it. Perfect for a few days' stay in London. Would definitely stay here again if it's available next time.
Mak's communication was excellent and the car-taker was waiting as we arrived just as planned. The location is outstanding: walking distance to a selection of transport options and easily able to get to most of the central things which were of interest to us. The local are is really cosmopolitan with plenty of eating and drinking options as well as a few small shops for supplies. The apartment is basic which is fine for us however, it had everything we needed including an iron/board. It needed fresh air as it smelt a little musty. Overall the apartment could use a thorough cleaning but it was very satisfactory for our visit and we have no complaints.
Mak was great - everything was exactly as the listing described, and the location couldn't be beat. We had a problem with the water heater one day (which was not a real problem - we just accidentally turned it off), and he had someone come out that day and fix it. He also followed up with us to make sure it was fixed. Mak was also really great about answering our questions and staying in contact prior to our arrival. Thank you so much!
Stayed for 6 nights in July when it was quite warm. Arrived around 2.15 & were told we couldn't book in for another 2 hours even though our documentations stated book in was from 12.00 noon. Not a good start. The unit itself is small, very basic & needs some work eg windows hard to open, light in the stairwell. A microwave I thought would have been standard but not the case. There is no airconditioning or even a fan which is pretty ordinary so the room was quite hot & you couldn't leave the windows open during the night due to the noise from the street cafes & pub in close proximity. There is also a lack of storage space if you want to unpack. On the positive side are the many cafes close by, the location is great - 3 underground stations within easy walking distance ( as we are walkers, we actually walked to many of London's attractions) plus Soho & the West End within a 20 minute walk. Overall, if you don't expect much but want to be close to the city regardless then this is OK but given the price we wouldn't return. Maybe 2.5 stars.
Nice pied-a-terre to discover London. Centrally located, and conveniently close several tube lines, but not too touristy. Fitzrovia is a nice neighbourhood with lots of cafes and restaurants in walking distance, also close to Regent's Park.
Mak was a good host, he responded always very quickly to any questions.
We enjoyed our stay!
Nice, basic, cozy place to stay. My wife and I used this as a home base from which to explore London. It had all the basic needs, and was a great alternative to staying at a hotel.
Appartement parfaitement situé, près du centre vivant, du parc Regent (pour ceux qui aiment courir), de la gare de st Pancras...la rue est calme, l'appartement très ensoleillé. L'ameublement est basique mais c'est fonctionnel et propre; En résumé, je recommande !
