The Space

This is a bright and airy second floor flat in a Georgian house. The open-plan lounge lounge and the bedroom can be separated by large sliding doors. The lounge and kitchen to the front overlook Regent Square, while the bedroom to the rear is south facing over St.Georges Gardens so the flat is surrounded by mature trees. A mix of original features, modern design and some art give the flat its sophisticated but cosy atmosphere.

  • I highly recommend staying at Dieter's airy modern flat. My husband and I stayed for a week and would have liked to stay longer. Dieter supplied everything you might need: a well stocked kitchen, very clean, light filled rooms and a super comfortable bed.
    Other pluses are the lovely, romantic St. George's Garden which you pass through going to and from the Russell Square tube station. The flat is an easy walk to Exmouth Market which has a lot of fun (and good) restaurants.
    We had a great visit.

  • Every October I visit London for two weeks. A few years ago I settled on Bloomsbury for its proximity to the Tube, Euston and Kings Cross St Pancras stations, as well as The Brunswick Center. This year I found what for me is the best apartment; Dieter’s. The apartment feels like a combination gallery and apartment in that there is space and room to turn around. The decor is modern and properly spare. It is a combination of what I call IKEA modern and German engineering. Dieter has packed a lot of amenities into his place. Another advantage outside of the apartment is walking back through St George’s Garden and decompressing after a hectic day in London. Dieter was away when I arrived and departed, but his instructions were clear and thorough. He encouraged me to call if I had questions, (which I didn’t have). I had no problem getting myself in and finding and operating everything. No searching and guessing about a place to stay on my next trip to London.

  • The flat was as described and in a great location to walk around London. It was great after a long day being a tourist to come back to a home and put our feet up. Also good not to have to eat out every night Would not hesitate in recommending this flat to all my friends.

  • My wife and I stayed in Dieter's Bloomsbury flat for two weeks and found it was all it was advertised to be--and more. Ideal location for us (working at the British Library), with very convenient access to the Underground, King's Cross, and Euston Station. Also very convenient to shopping, especially at the Brunswick Center. The flat was very comfortable and stylish, too. We especially enjoyed the lovely views--and access--to Regent Square and St. George's Gardens. Dieter was very prompt in answering any questions we had, both prior to and during our stay. He is respectful and responsive and he has anticipated his guests' needs. We would highly recommend this flat and look forward to returning in subsequent summers. This is a winner.

  • We stayed at Dieter’s apartment for six nights and had a wonderful time. It was an amazing stay at Bloomsbury. The apartment is absolutely well appointed and we loved the style of this apartment. It is next to a small and beautiful park, so you have a great view.

    We really loved the days in London and the apartment. We absolutely recommend this apartment.

  • Dieter was great host and my wife and I enjoyed staying in his flat very much. He was very kind and answered all of our queries straight away. The flat itself is very nice…bright and modern, but also artistic so you can really feel the personal touch. Very nice garden wives from both sides of the flat. We also rely liked location since it is quite central (very close to Russell Square and Kings Cross tube statins), but the area is actually really quiet. I would recommend Dieter's flat to anyone and would gladly stay there again.

  • My wife and I had a wonderful time in London staying at Dieter's lovely flat. Before our flight he had sent us clear, helpful instructions on the flat, which we found useful. It is located in the heart of Bloomsbury, easy to visit bookshops and restaurants. The nearby Brunswick Centre (10-minute walk away) is particularly useful for grocery shopping. That being said, the flat itself is so quiet and peaceful, with the front and back windows facing gardens. We were lucky to see snowfall through the flat's large windows during our stay. It is also very clean, equipped with all mod cons. My wife especially liked the powerful shower and well-heated shower room. We would recommend Dieter's flat in a heart beat.

  • Dieter's flat was neat, tidy, and conveniently located. My husband and I were extremely happy and hope to stay again. I especially recommend this flat to scholars who plan to research at the London Metropolitan Archives or the British Library or for individuals who plan to visit the British Museum or Bloomsbury. Absolutely brilliant stay. We thank Dieter for his clear instructions and gracious hospitality. He has our top recommendation!

About
I'm a German living in London and Zürich, interested in arts and design. I do travel quite a lot but also love the quiet enjoyment of my cozy home the times I spend in London. When I passed St.Georges garden on my walk to Soho I always looked up to the windows of the Georgian houses facing the park. I envied the people living so central, close to Soho and Covent Garden, but nevertheless in such a green and quiet neighborhood. One day by coincidence I discovered that the flat was sold in an auction, went there and finally got it. The flat was in a a very poor state. I redesigned the lay out, renovated everything from scratch and furnished it with a mix of modern and some few antique objects. Finally brought some of my own sculptures and collected art. The flat is now my true little gem in Central London
