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.

Before departure Nivi was very helpfull concerning the key exchange and other questions I had as a first time user of the Airbnb system. The appartement is nice and located in a nice part of London, with all kinds of shops and food possibilities just around the corner. Good connection with public transport. The room was clean and nice and the bed slept fantastique! good Wifi-connection.
I didn't meet Nivi. We made arrangements for the key pick up and it was fairly easy. The location is great because the underground is across the street and there's a lot of options for food and the grocery stores are right on the ground floor. The space is large and feels comfortable. There's plenty of natural light despite the bad weather outside. It is fairly clean but probably needs a good spring cleaning in a few spots because of the condensation buildup from the greenhouse effect of all the windows, there's a bit of mold growing (could be a concern for future guests...didn't bother us). Overall, good match for what I was looking for (quick stay in London)
Nivi was a great host - responsive, reliable, quiet, nice and welcoming.
Friendly welcome, shown around the property, and accommodating to my later arrival time. Very comfortable bed. Perfect location for my needs. Not the quietest place but I think that's just because I'm not used to being in a busy city!
As usual, Nivi was very welcoming and provided us with everything we needed. The apartment is ideally located (walking distance to St Pancras and very close to the tube)!
