About this listing

Right in the heart of London - this is an amazing location! My cosy apartment is the perfect place for those who wish to explore London on foot. Many tourist attractions are literally around the corner. It is very easy to get to my place from any airport because I am surrounded by various tubes lines, trains and buses. The kitchen is fully functional, you can cook your own meals (this is a gluten free household). You will live on the third floor and the area is very safe, also at night time.

The space

This cosy one bedroom flat is based in an excellent location; you'll be in a charming cobblestone street right in the center of London!

You will be in walking distance to Oxford Street, British Museum, British Library, Madame Tussauds and the lovely neighbourhood of Fitzrovia. There are many restaurant and cafes in this area and Soho is only 15 minutes down the road.

There is plenty of public transport: 2 tube stations with 5 different tube lines and various buses, just 3 minutes away from my doorstep. Supermarkets are open even during nighttime.

Additional information: the flat benefits from FREE telephone calls to the UK and most of Europe, a free wireless Internet connection, a fully functioning kitchen with washing machine and a bathroom with bath tub and a 'sitting' shower.

I am very happy to supply you with 'Oyster' cards, maps and books about London as well as information about art & culture in the neighbourhood. As I am an artist myself, I usually know what's going on in town... just ask :)

Other things to note

ATTENTION: I am only renting the flat when I am travelling. The next time this place becomes available is for 1 week in October and from Christmas into the New Year.

Great value! Hadn't stay in Fitzrovia before, and I really enjoyed it as a neighbourhood. Having Astrid's flat as a stepping off point is perfect - close to transit, and to wander the city on foot. The flat itself is clean and spacious. I'd absolutely stay again next time I'm in London.

Astrid is friendly, helpful and a lovely hostess. I stayed roughly 20 days in her apt. and I can certainly affirm that it was an incredible time with everything I needed for my stay, besides being a charming place with an accurate description. The location was pretty good, close to the underground and around to some of the most important places in London. For me it was even more special because my school was 15 minutes walking from Astrid's place. In general, it was amazing and I really recommend the place :)

Astrid's place was great, comfortable, well-equipped, ideally located, and in a quiet area. The apartment conformed to the description and the photos give an accurate idea of the real place. Astrid was abroad but she left me all the necessary information to make my stay easy, and she was generally very helpful. Because nothing is perfect, if you're a shower person it can be bothering to take the shower sitting in the bathtub (but you get used to it after a few days), and sometimes you can hear the neighbors upstairs a little bit too much. But overall I warmly recommend this place!

Astrid was a great host! She welcomed us in and gave us all the details needed for a comfortable stay. Her apartment is conveniently located 20 min by subway from St. Pancras, and within a walking distance to Soho. The place was apparently clean and tidy, with all the amenities needed, and is located in a quiet, inner street.

I love art, cinema visits, cooking and entertaining friends.

Most above all I like to travel and to learn about foreign cultures. As most people I meet, visit or work with are so incredibly hospitable, I would like to give something back and share my home with those you are on 'the same boat' :)
