This is a twin room with its own shower and toilet, so no need to share with anyone else.
The location is great, West End of London. You can't be any more central than this. Hundreds of restaurants, bars, theatres and museums nearby, all with in less than 5min walk. Do expect some noise as it's backed onto restaurants.
Our rooms are simply decorated and are clean and comfortable.
We don't really have a kitchen in the flat, because with so many restaurants are around, our guests are out all the time enjoying their London experience and food. There is a microwave and kitchen sink and mini fridge to make tea or reheat food in the shared area.
Fast Wifi is included. We can do some basic washings for you (1 load a week), or laundry services can be ordered easily from local supplier. Bedding and a bath towel for each guest is provided. However if you are fussy about towels, then please bring your own towels, we wash our own towels and they are not going to be fluffy and sparkling white.
There is no TV as I couldn't get TV aerial installed.
I am a very honest and down to earth person, I want you to be aware of any potential issues before hand and be happy with any bookings you make with me. If there's anything you need, just ask and we shall try our best to help you. We live and work next door with our family. One thing I do ask our guests is that please be considerate to all others who are living in this block and absolutely no smoking anywhere inside the block.
Also I'd like to draw your attention to the fact that this is Airbnb, not a hotel and you are in people's private homes. We do our best to make sure everyone has a great time, but we don't run like a hotel and we are working families, so we are not around 24/7.
Another thing just to be clear -- the flat backs onto restaurants and there're some noise especially on Fridays and Saturdays.
A small but comfortable place in the heart of London. Everything was clean and tidy on our arrival, and there was no issue getting the keys or anything. Easy access from Chinatown and a nice quite break from the hectic urban life outside the building.
- Decent room, clean and legit.
- Very neat and helpful host.
- very good spot, central, ideal for a week-end in London
- very expensive compared to the flat standing (only one window that must stay closed due to outdoor noises)
- very hard to get hot water (prepare for cold showers)
I am sorry to hear that Paul had the hot water problem. I tested it when they reported to me and I couldn't find any problem, but informed them that they can use the alternative shower room if needed. As to the comment about one window. It's a room, and one window in a room is common. The window is normally closed in winter and we open it regularly let air in the morning for a short time.
I really enjoyed the stay! The room was exactly as advertised. The hosts were great and very helpful even when I needed their assistance late in the evening. The check-in process was easy and well organized the instructions after booking were very helpful. The location is unbeatable, central to everything. I would highly recommend this to travelers who want to be in this location.
I received a warm welcome from Ms. Yang who checked me in. The room was very clean and well appointed, with everything I needed for a short stay. You really couldn't ask for more from such a great location in central London!
The Twin room is great! Very clean, wel kept room. Not cramped at all. The apartment is SO Centrally located its amazing. I was working at a theatre on the west end, literally 3 minutes away. Its right off Leicester Square, which is where all the Film premiers happen, its also steps away from piccadilly circus. Its a great space if you're in town for business in central London, easy to get to from Heathrow, and a few Underground train lines. I will defiantly be staying at this location again.
Perfect geographic situation, room nice and clean!
Thank you Helen for the wonderful time!
Great room, Great location and Helen is attentive to your well-being during your stay.
Nice room, clean and Helen was very helpful for everithing, the area is nice, have pubs with life music close by.
Defenitely I'll come back next time!
Very good location! And the place is clean. Hui is very kind and helpful~~ The rooms look better than the pictures~
The location couldn't have been better...I was in town for the Frieze Art Fair which was a pleasant walk from the room. That being said, this is the kind of place you stay at if you don't plan to stay in your room a whole lot.
The free WiFi was a plus.
This is the final rate, including any fees from the host and Airbnb.
