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) 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.

Overall Guest Satisfaction
Check In
  • We didn't get to meet Stephen but were met downstairs for the keys by his colleague. She had to run which was fair enough as the Brazil match was about to start :) We were very happy with the apartment, very clean and all the home comforts you'd want.

    We had five big suitcases because it was our wedding weekend and the stairs were a nightmare I'm afraid, it was our fault as we had been warned it was a walk-up :) Excellent flat and location but travel light due to the stairs!!!

  • Stephen was so responsive to my emails leading up to our trip. We had no trouble getting into the place or leaving on time. Everything was arranged perfectly for our stay. The apartment was pretty large for a 1 bedroom, it was in a fabulous location, and it was perfectly clean. We couldn't ask for more!

  • Stephan was terrific with communication and follow-through, as were his associates. The flat is as pictured: super-cool, spacious, and centrally located. Though we didn't take advantage of the bottle of wine left for our consumption, we did eat the chocolates! Other pluses: Comfy bed, beautiful bathroom, roomy living room/kitchen area. The apartment is five flights up (84 steps), but this only proved a difficulty when we arrived with our bags; otherwise, we were out all day and only had to climb the stairs at day's end. The area is amazingly quiet at night, which was great for sleep!

  • Séjour très agréable dans l'hyper centre de Londres. L'appartement est très bien desservi et proche de tous les centres d'intérêts. Prestation à la hauteur. Très bon accueil et l'appartement est très propre on se sent vite chez soi. Stephan est très arrangeant sur les horaires et nous avons pu trouver un arrangement afin de profiter au mieux de notre dernière journée. Le seul petit bémol est les 5 étages sans ascenseur mais ca ne fait pas de mal un petit peu plus d'exercice :)

  • Meine Frau und ich haben die 10 Tage in London sehr genossen. Die Wohnung war absolut wie beschrieben - klasse! Die Lage sehr gut geeignet zur Erkundung der Stadt und trotzdem verhältnissmäßig ruhig gelegen. Das Treppenhaus ist allerdings für große Koffer eine Herausforderung... ;-) Wir würden wieder kommen!

  • Stephan was a fantastic host, and the place was even better than I was expecting it would be. Stephan was very responsive to any inquiries I had, and was very helpful. The location is great, very close to convenient tube locations.

  • Brian and I really enjoyed our staying at your flat while we were in London! It was such a nice place to come back to after a long days of sightseeing. Everything was clean and just as shown in the pictures. We were glad that there were plenty of restaurants around and a Tube station right down the street. Thanks for quick communication and having a friend greet us when we arrived. She was very helpful!

    Response from Stephan:

    Thanks so much Sarah and Brian! It's great to hear you enjoyed the apartment and the area, and we really enjoyed looking after you. Please let us know when you come back to London, it would be a pleasure to be your hosts again!

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!
