About this listing
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) 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 - please note that one of them is locked as it contains some of my stuff), 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.
- No excessive noise between 11pm and 7am please!
- Preferably take off your shoes when inside the apartment.
- Don't overload the washing machine - half full should be the maximum.
- Do not attempt to access the roof
- Please use the recycling bin for paper, cardboard, cans as well as plastic bottles and container (full description can be found on bin)
- If you want to get rid of garbage, please leave it on the pavement outside the building ideally between 5 and 7pm on weekdays only
- Close all windows when leaving the apartment.
- Make sure the building's main door is properly shut when leaving the building.
- Make sure the apartment's door is locked when leaving the apartment.
Many thanks and enjoy your stay!
What a fantastic apartment with an incredibly helpful and accommodating host! Stephan's friend met us (waited an hour as our plane was delayed), helped us up the stairs with our bags and showed us the ropes. The apartment is in the PERFECT location if you want to spend your time in London actually IN London - not underground. We walked to everything and saw so much more of interest because of this and saved a small fortune in the bargain. (Public transport in London is excellent - but so very expensive.) The apartment looks just like the pictures and the bed was the most comfortable sleep we encountered in our 6-weeks of travelling.
Thank you so much Lisa! We were really happy to read your great and very helpful review, it is very nice to hear how much you enjoyed the apartment, the location and your stay in general. It was also a great pleasure for us to welcome you and your family in London, you were top guests! We very much hope to welcome you back very soon. Thanks again.
What a great flat for our brief stay in London! It was within easy walking distance to restaurants, the tube, and the sights, but was nice and quiet in the evenings for a good night's sleep. The flat was very clean and tidy and the perfect size for our needs. The bed in the bedroom was extremely comfortable. If we ever travel to London again, we will definitely stay in Stephan's flat!
After several flight delays, hassles with baggage and a longer than expected tube ride we were well over scheduled time to meet someone to greet us at Stephan's place, although it was not a problem, someone was there to greet us. Stephan's place is in perfect location being very close to the tube station and easy to get around Central London whilst still feeling quiet and private. Modern bathroom, large bedroom, great kitchen amenities. Overall we were very happy with the place.
Thanks very much for your positive feedback Shaun! It was a real pleasure for us to welcome you, and we are glad that you could relax at your new London home after all this travel hassle! We enjoyed looking after you and very much hope that you will be back to visit us again very soon.
Nous avons passé un agréable séjour à Londres avec l'appartement de Stephan pour pied-à-terre. Les précieux renseignements de notre hôte nous ont été fort utiles et l'emplacement de l'appartement est idéal pour accéder rapidement aux divers lieux touristiques de la capitale. Arpenter les rues du quartier tard le soir ne présente absolument aucun risque.
Comme mentionné dans d'autres commentaires, il y a effectivement des travaux en cours dans l'immeuble d'à côté (immeuble qui est par ailleurs inexistant puisqu'il a été démoli), mais ces travaux n'ont en rien gêné la tranquillité de notre séjour.
L'appartement en lui-même est quant à lui fidèle à la description faite sur le site, et, cerise sur le gâteau, la literie est excellente.
Nous recommandons vivement cet appartement pour vos escapades londoniennes.
Encore merci à Stephan pour son amabilité et sa convivialité. A très bientôt. Delphine
Merci beaucoup Delphine pour votre commentaire que nous apprécions beaucoup! C'est un plaisir d'entendre que vous avez passe un bon sejour, et c'etait egalement un plaisir pour nous de vous accueillir a Londres. Nous esperons que vous reviendrez tres bientot! Encore une fois merci.

About the Host, Stephan
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!
