Other Things to Note

Alix was a great and flexible host and the apartment met our expectations. It was tidy and comfortable though it has the limitations you would expect from a basement flat (ie little sunlight) but the BEST part was the AMAZING location. We loved it, felt very safe there, and it's close to a lot of good restaurants, shopping, tube stations, etc. Communication with Alix was easy and we would highly recommend the space!
The apartment looked different in the pictures, but it was a big space. The twin bed did not have a real mattress and was too hard to sleep on. But the sofa is comfortable enough to sleep on. The host mentioned the noise in the description, but nothing can prepare you for what you really hear from the laundromat and store above this basement apartment (especially in the early morning around 4-5AM). The host left us earplugs which helped.
The neighbourhood is central and quiet, close to shops like PriMark and Top Shop.
Very central and close to main shopping street! Nice flat, couch and double bed comfortable!
Its was very greate to stay at Art studio , the big flat at center of london 5 min walk from Oxford street , clear and quiet place, i relly come back. thanks Rachel&Alix
Alix's basement has a perfect location, just several minutes walk to Oxford street. Alix also provided us internet access in city London and this was really helpful. The apartment was very clean and cosy. However, there is just one problem, the shop above Alix's basement opens really early in the morning and it could be rather noisy for a light sleeper. Alix kindly provided us with ear plugs but they barely helped. Overall, we would definitely recommend this listing to non-light-sleepers.
We stayed for a week, Alix and Rachel were great, very easy to reach and accommodating all around. The 3 compact rooms plus kitchen provided more than enough space for us as a couple, and also comfortably accommodated a 3rd person when we had one. The location was central to everywhere we wanted to go and made for a good walking base, with some nice local pubs/restaurants nearby. The basement location eliminated street noise so it was actually very quiet except (as others have noted) when the newsstand overhead thumped around during their setup in the early morning which didn't bother us too much, but might disturb some.
