Interaction with Guests
I do not live in the building but i do always come to the apartment to get the room ready for our guests. I like to make sure that all is clean and that the guest is satisfied. I have a 24 hour check-in system in place to accommodate any late check-ins or any guests that are a bit late. you can reach via mobile phone or AirBnB message at any time, please don't hesitate :)
I used to run my guest house on this very street, so i should know the area very well. The flat is right in the heart of London so it is difficult to pick out any one place in particular that you must visit. But for eating out my favourite is Old Compton Street, one of the most renowned places in London to serve dinner til late at night. The British Museum is at the heart of Bloomsbury, a mere walking distance away from the apartment. Historically, Bloomsbury is associated with the education, medicine and mostly, the art. Therefore the area sets a sophisticated yet very modern atmosphere. The Bloomsbury theatre, a very respected theatre within the eyes of Londoners and actors/actresses alike; is located within the area.
Attractions like Oxford and Soho are easily accessible through public transport as the flat is so close to it anyway.

I didn't meet Maggie but I did meet her friend Pete and he was very very kind and accommodating and giving. Husband and I both really liked him
Location is good, 10-15 minute walk to soho and covenant gardens, if that's what your are interested to see in London
London process are very expensive, nut this place was especially expensive. We stayed for 3 nights and ended up paying $650. That's comparable to Joel ratings, and my husband and I truly didn't feel the price was with it. The bed was very very comfortable, but it was two beds combined to one. The bathroom felt like a portable bathroom because that's what it essentially looked like. When we originally saw the moving it said it was $150 per night so we weed up paying $200 more, it was totally my responsibility because I should've paid more Attention. Also showers get cold after 10-15 minutes of usage. There is a laundry machine but no detergent and you have to know how to use the model (not like Americans, Pete came and helped), no little nice essentials like toothpaste and body wash
Otherwise, nice towels and comforter, good internet access, good communication, good location if soho and convenant gardens and busy busy touristy area is what you are looking for, very plain home but accurately depicted on the pictures, but super expensive to the point that it leaves you somewhat disappointed. But still, with a lower price, I'd recommend it.
apartment was very central to all tourist attractions/ metro stations. apartment is clean and as per described. Nice and spacious. We were very happy overall.
Lovely location. Very comfortable bed, large thick towels. Well served by buses snd the tube. Peter was very helpful. 3 flights of stairs, may not be for everyone but you can't beat the location.
What a great place! Just steps from the British Museum, with a big bedroom and a very large (for London!) kitchen. I would definitely stay in Maggie's apartment again.
Communication with Maggie was wonderful. She responded to my queries promptly and with a great level of detail. Was really easy to find the apartment which is located centrally in the Bloomsbury district. Easy access from Holborn tube station and within easy walking distance of all my meetings for the day. The apartment itself is clean and tidy, perfect for a short stay. NB it is at the top of a couple of flights of narrow stairs so if you have heavy suitcases beware. All in all a great place to stay.
Throughout the process, Maggie, our host, was quick to respond by email to all questions. Our rooms were in a convenient location. It was a short walk to British Museum, minutes to Holborn tube station and busses, 5 minutes to Covent Gardens and Shaftesbury Theater. The apartment met our needs. We had a great stay, and would happily return.
We loved the location of this flat. Right around the corner (literally) from the British Museum and a few minutes walk to the nearest underground station - Holborn. The main living area had plenty of room for me and my husband. The bathroom was a bit cramped but we've experienced the same thing in other European cities. Having a kitchen is nice since eating out all day everyday can get old and expensive. We washed our clothes once which was a treat since we've been traveling before and will continue to be traveling after. But beware that the cycles take extremely longer than US washing machines (took 2.5 hours to wash). I asked a London coworker about this and she said you have to find the quick cycle. Unfortunately there is no way to tell which cycle setting that is. Overall this flat fit our needs. Very clean and great location, and worth the price.
