A Charming, if eccentric 1 bedroom apartment in the heart of the London's West End, with a private terrace commanding view across the skyline of the city. For those with fastidious tastes hoping for 'hotel' standards, however, you might not find this to your taste.
The flat is fully furnished and equipped with a kitchen, a micro-wave, a washing machine, a TV etc. It is located on the top floor of a 1930's apartment block and only 5 minutes by foot from Oxford Street, Hyde Park, London Paddington, tube stations and many buses. There are major supermarkets very close by. Known as 'Little Lebanon', the area is vibrantly alive with many restaurants, shops and a lot of character (many of them staying open late).
The apartment is ideal for an individual and perfectly adequate for a couple. Longer stays are preferred but not essential and monthly discount rates are on offer.
Please feel free to contact me in case you need any more information or have any questions in regards to the property or the area.
Photos are available.

I stayed in this apartment for 5 nights and it was great! Especially the location is awesome with an amazing view and nice bars and Restaurants within 5 minutes by foot as well as a big supermarket and parks to chill. We saw a lot of Berlin in these 6 days and this location is the best you could ever have. You don't hear your neighbors or the street because it's really well isolated so don't hesitate to listen to your music :D Laurence is uncomplicated : always available and ready to help.
We went to London for the concert of the Rolling Stones in Hyde Park. The flat was perfect for this. Laurence is very pleasant and welcoming. We felt like we've always known each other. We didn't rent a room, we were at home.
Thanks Laurence for your kindness and hospitality.

Total dissapointment with the apartment and host. The building was in ruins. Halls, walls ,carpet and elevator were in terrible conditions. Also there was a hideous smell. Then we spent 30 minutes trying to open the door. When we finally got in, we found the place untidy and dirty. Bed unmade with sheets unchanged, poor light in bathroom and sofa with papers on it. After all these deceptions we decided to leave the place without spending there any night, affording a not expected cost renting another place (we rented the place for 6 nights but we didn't spend any night). We contacted the host immediately but never received an answer. Despite this bad experience, we spent a wonderful time in London, but we definetly NOT recommend this apartment at all.
Voyage génial : Londres est magnifique ! Par contre quelle déception quant à l'appartement de Larry. Ce monsieur est gentil mais son appartement est vraiment à déconseiller : odeurs très fortes de tabac froid à l'intérieur et de cuisine à l'extérieur et dans les parties communes. Linge d'une propreté plus que douteuse (drap, couette tachée et serviettes malodorantes). Tous les miroirs de l'appart sont quasi opaques de saleté et le reste est du même acabit. Pas d'eau chaude au lavabo et peu de pression à la douche. Quant à la cuisine, le frigo était sale, la vaisselle aussi et l'évier...n'en parlons pas. Nous regrettons notre choix. Aussi faites attention au votre !
The appartment is really nice and pretty cozy. As mentioned in previous comments there are some buts like lebanon restaurent's smell and dirty building. Anyway we liked staying in this place. The view from terrace is amasing! Location is good and comfortable for sightseeing. We'd like to stay the same place next time.
And thanks to Larry, he left as an amasing welcome letter! :)
Very good location easy to connect to every famous places of London
Not as clean as hotel but its fine if u are traveller coz won't spend much time in the apartment
The worse thing was the bathroom water tape the pressure was terrible seems no hot water coming out we have to take a super cold shower under 0 degree weather
We were reserving apartments on AirBnB for the first time, so we worried how everything will go, but Larry has appeared very friendly and responsive person and we had no problems at all! During our visit Larry was not in place, but he gave us all necessary contacts beforehand and we moved in without any difficulty.
Said the apartment location is just great is to say nothing! Whatever you are going to do - shopping, visiting attractions/museums, or simply stroll - almost everything is in 10-20 minute distance via buses/underground/on foot.
The penthouse itself left mixed feelings: we were unlucky with weather when visiting London, so we felt a bit uncomfortable and also had no chance to enjoy the terrace, but I believe you'll be more fortunate than us and enjoy the open-air breakfast watching the dawn over the London.
Finally we'd like to thank Larry for sharing his home with us and for his instructions/hints those were very helpful!
Laurence's home is a wonderful little apartment. It is exactly what it says on the tin!
At first I was a little worried after reading a few reviews containing some negative points. But having stayed there I would recommend it. Yes, the building is a little run down, but once inside the apartment you soon forget.
It is small, but the perfect size for us.
Laurence was extremely helpful prior to arrival, giving us plenty of information.
