The space

The apartment is located very centrally in the Holborn / Chancery Lane area, in between the West End and the City. All major Central London attractions are within walking distance, and so are public transports (5 minutes walk to Chancery Lane station on the Central Line, 8 minutes walk to Holborn station from where you can take the Piccadilly Line directly to Heathrow). In addition, the apartment is only a few minutes walk from the borders of the Thames and the Northbank promenade. Finally, location is also ideal for professionals, with numerous law firms, investment banks or accounting firms within walking distance.

The apartment is on the 5th floor (without elevator, about 90 steps) and is therefore very bright with sunlight from morning to evening (partially also through velux windows on the ceiling). It is 52m2 in size (about 550 square feet), sleeps 4 people, and consists of one large, very quiet bedroom (with large built-in wardrobes), one brand new bathroom with bathtub and rain shower, one brand new kitchen with dishwasher, washing machine and breakfast bar as well as a living room with sofabed, flat screen TV and electronic piano. Free wifi is also available.

I will also welcome you with a free bottle of your choice - prosecco, white wine or red wine.

Finally, I offer a free one-day gym pass per guest for stays over a week. Weekly gym passes can be arranged for a fee on request.

PS - IMPORTANT: We make it clear in this listing that the apartment is on the 5th floor without elevator. This is not a problem for most guests - some even enjoy it! However, if you have difficulties walking or certain health issues, this might not be the right holiday home for you. Since this is probably the only thing we cannot change about the apartment - we have reflected it in our prices, to make them very competitive. Therefore we would be grateful if you could avoid penalising us due to the stairs when writing your review after your stay. Many thanks for your understanding, and we hope to welcome you in London soon!

Our family (4 people including an 11-year old and 13-year old) stayed at Stephan's place for two weeks. We felt like locals! It was centrally located and we could walk or take the Tube everywhere. The street was busy during the day but very quiet at night. As Stephan mentions, there are five flights of stairs but the location and the price more than make up for the stairs. We would stay there again.

The apartment was exactly as described, central, clean, convenient and well sized for a couple. Others have mentioned the stairs, but for us these were no problem, a good replacement for no gym attendance. Stephen was a great host and all went very well.

We chose this place for the location and we found it perfect. There are tubes close by but we found ourselves on the bus more often than not, the number 11 stopped at the bottom of the road and took us everywhere we wanted to go. The flat has everything you need and the bed was lovely and comfortable after a hard day's slog around London. We would stay here again on another visit to London.

We had a lovely stay here. Here are a couple of things you should know before booking: 1. The stairs are serious. There are about 90 narrow, winding stairs up to the flat. It was intense with luggage and intense after long days walking around the city. We scheduled our outings to try and only climb them once a day. We were fairly and adequately warned, and I also feel the price was adjusted accordingly, but it is not something to ignore. 2. The flat is very centrally located and very close to at least three tube stations. We found it very easy to get around as needed (especially with the CityMapper app). The area, though, is primarily business rather than residential. This means that most of the restaurants and coffee shops around are not open on the weekends. We had to venture pretty far to find a restaurant in the area on a Saturday night. The upside to this is that it is very quiet. We would definitely consider staying here again on a return trip. We found Stephan to be very responsive, and the flat to be clean and comfy.

Brilliant little apartment located in reach of everything you could ever need. The stairs are an issue for some and carrying a heavy suitcase up is a pain but if you're staying for a long weekend you only have to carry them up and down once. Stephan even offered to help my girlfriend carry her case. Hosting wise Stephan was brilliant, giving us details on where everything is locally, giving us a thorough tour of the apartment and leaving basic instructions for anyone to follow. Brilliant at communicating, always on hand if needed and very easy to talk to/get hold of before the trip even began.

The apartment is very cool, good location, cosy. The bed is perfect, and also the shower, everything that you need after a tour day. Sthepan was easy to communicate, very helpful. The only worry thing is the stairs, with heavy luggage, can be tough, but we knew this after booking. We highly recommend this place.

I love travelling and therefore want to make sure my guests have a fantastic experience too.

I split time between London and Berlin but also enjoy travelling to other major cities or some remote destinations.... this could be in the mountains or somewhere on a beach.

I also like reading, writing, music, going out, working out and eating well!
