About This Listing
Beautiful double room with a balcony in Bloomsbury.
I am renting a room in a two bedroom flat in the Brunswick Centre, WC1. This is in Russell Square, Bloomsbury - it doesn't get more central than that! The flat has a huge living room and each room opens out on to a private balcony. The room itself is a nice big double room with a built-closet, a shelf of drawers and a table. The flat has wifi, a dishwasher, a washing machine and all other modcons. The Brunswick Centre boasts London's biggest Waitrose, lots of restaurants and cafes including GBK, Carluccio's and Giraffe and shops like LK Bennett and River Island. You can check out the many delights of the Brunswick centre by googling it. The British museum is a few minutes walk away, as are Covent Garden and Oxford Street. Russell Square tube station is 30 seconds away. The bathroom is shared by one other person (either myself or my flatmate). I am a 26 year old PhD student and he is a consultant. We both like to keep the flat clean and will give you as much privacy as you'd like, but will also be around if you need any help getting around/have questions about London. I can also rent out the entire apartment, (and not just the room advertised) so please let me know if you are interested. I can also be flexible re: check in but it would depend on the day. Finally, this is a home inhabited by young people and not a hotel, so you get the benefits of easy access, comfort, safety, and friendliness but none of the frills of an expensive hotel room.
Nivi was not in London for our 2 nights stay however her friend was there to check us in and welcome us.
Great location above Bloomsbury Centre, easy walking access to Russell St station and Kings Cross/St Pancreas stations.
Relativley clean apartment - although the growth of black mould on windows needs addressing?
Although we only briefly met Nivi, she was easy to get in contact with whenever we had questions. We really enjoyed our stay at her flat- it's pretty basic with no frills, but is well-kept and the area feels safe. It's a quick walk to the tube and near plenty of restaurants, pubs, and stores. Definitely recommend it if you're staying in London on a budget for a few days.
Nivi made us feel at home immediately. She gave us a tour of the house and then left us to settle into our room. The unit is so central to the train, shops and restaurants. We spent some time at Carluccio's an Italian Restaurant close by. We had the home to ourselves most of the time and were able to cook a meal and do some washing which was great. All in all very happy with this booking.
Nivi's apartment is cozy, has an excellent location (next to Russell Square tube station, the British Museum, British Library, and Kings' Cross train station, and stores), and she was helpful in every possible way. I would definitely go back next time I am
