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!
The communication with Stephan was easy leading up to our stay. The apartment is located in a good location, close to buses on Fleet Street, and the tube stations of Chancery, and a little further away Temple. This is a good spot for couples, or for a family with 1 or 2 small children. Well appointed kitchen, good bathroom and apartment spotlessly clean throughout. Building construction next door was noisy with a 7am weekday start. We were out all day so not really a big issue.
Thanks for your positive feedback, Glen! It was a pleasure to be your host and to welcome you in London. It is very nice to hear you enjoyed the apartment and your stay. Unfortunately, central London is full of construction works right now, and there is always a risk to end up staying close to one of them, but it will indeed not bother active visitors like you. In addition, regulations regarding noise and work hours are quite strict for construction sites. Please come back to visit us again soon!
A wonderful apartment in great location with good amenities and friendly and generous hosts. Can easily recommend it. Yes the 5 flights of stairs are a pain with luggage but that is the only negative.
The beds were comfortable and the apartment was very clean and presentable.
The appartement is just like described, it's really big, very nice and comfortable and absolutely clean. We really enjoyed staying there. It's three minutes close to public transport and a shopping area. You reach London downtown easily. Stephan is the nicest host you can imagine. He doesn't only care about you before you reach London (he sends you information about everything you might need - sightseeing, transport, luggage), if necessary he also cares while you are there. Due to a fire in the neighbourhood we didn't have any power for a day. Even though it really wasn't Stephan's fault he sent us chocolate, wine, even a refund an all the information we needed. Excellent! Thanks again! The only thing you should know is that you have to overcome 85 steps before you can open the flat's door! Our children loved it, some elder people might think diffrent about it.
Thanks so much, Susanne, for your really kind feedback and review. I do appreciate it. It was a pleasure to be your host - and thanks so much for your patience in dealing with the area-wide power outage! Also, I am glad to hear your children enjoyed the stairs! Thanks again and please do come back soon.
The most kind host!! Perfect location, perfect apartment!
Nous avons passé 2 nuits sur place avec un enfant de 3 ans.
Stephan est vraiment vraiment très sympathique et accueillant, toujours prêt à rendre service. Les échanges par mail avant l'arrivée étaient précis, avec pleins d'informations sur le quartier, l'appartement, des petits conseils etc.. Nous avons même reçu un mail chaleureux pendant le séjour pour s'assurer que tout se passait bien.
Appartement très sympathique, très bien placé entre Chancery Lane et Holborn. Parfait pour un séjour touristique à Londres.
Très propre, lumineux, bien équipé. Même les 5 étages qui nous semblaient un peu haut avant d'arriver n'ont pas été dérangeants.
Le seul petit bémol, mais qui n'a absolument rien à voir avec Stephan, c'est le chantier de construction un peu bruyant à coté. (ça permet de se lever tôt pour partir en visite...).
Nous recommandons vivement cet appartement pour un petit séjour à Londres.
Cool apartment located right in the heart of the Legal District of London. Easy accessible to the Tube and 25 min walk into Oxford Street its the perfect location to be in. Apartment was fully equipped with all the details, Oyster Card and even a Sim Card to top up to use.
Stephan was easy to deal with and email communications with him was prompt, detailed and friendly. He goes above and beyond including sending us a card with wine and chocs mid-week through our week long stay. The apartment is exactly as the photos and very cosy and comfortable for the 3 of us. We loved the location being in a lively neighbourhood, walkable to everything you need i.e. shops, pubs, transportation and tourist sites. Will not hesitate to recommend to those looking for a centrally located, good sized fully equipped apartment. The only catch is you need to be fairly fit or do not mind stairs as you'll need to climb up 84 steep and narrow steps to the 5th floor.
Thanks very much Lilian. It is very nice to hear you enjoyed the apartment and the area, and it was a real pleasure to welcome you in London. Well done for counting the steps! We hope to welcome you back soon. Thanks again for your visit and for taking the time to write such a kind and helpful review.

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!
