Spacious one bedroom flat on second floor of this well located property.

One of the main features of the bedroom (praised by my friends) is the double glazed window. This was recently installed to block noise (people and vehicles) which was previously an issue.

Please switch off all the electric equipment before leaving the property and make sure that also the central heating is switch off.
First, the good news: the location of the apartment is fantastic. It's in the heart of Soho with easy access to all transport and many of the sites. There are plenty of bars and restaurants within a minute or two walk. I can't say enough good things about the location. The location is quiet, except for occasional noise outside from neighbors. The size was fine for us; two adults and two children, but it would be a really tight squeeze for four adults. The pictures suggest more space than there is, but again it was fine for us.
I think that the flat needs a bit of of modernizing, as it's a bit dated and worn. A new shower head should be a priority. However, if you just need a place to sleep while you explore London then it is perfectly fine. I would certainly stay there again, albeit without the kids.
I did not meet or speak with our host, but her apartment cleaner was nice. We arrived after 3pm, but the flat wasn't ready. So we had to wander around for an hour and a half while it was prepared. A slight inconvenience.
Apartamento pequeño ubicado en primer piso por escalera a una cuadra de Carnaby St., esta muy buena ubicación no compensa los problemas de calidad y atención recibidas. A nuestra llegada tuvimos que esperar dos horas luego de la hora acordada a que llegara alguien a abrirnos. Cuando entramos el apartamento estaba sin limpiar de los huéspedes anteriores, una de las camas estaba rota y el lavarropa no funcionaba. Esto último fue una decepción ya que había sido uno de los motivos al elegir el lugar... La cama se reparó ese día pero el lavarropa no fue reparado a pesar de las promesas de Lucy. Tuvimos que pagar lavadero lo que demandó tiempo y dinero. El apartamento no cumplió con las condiciones anunciadas cuando lo contratamos.
Unfortunately a poor experience. Whilst the location of this apartment is exactly what we were after, the apartment itself was very poor quality. It had very little ventilation so the bathroom constantly smelt, the shower head was no longer mounted to the wall and tiles were moulding in the bathroom. The beds were poor quality and the walls were paper thin. It seems as if everything in the apartment was very old as the washer dryer did not work once for us, failing to drain water. Unfortunately this was certainly not what we expected and the quality of the apartment and in particular its facilities was disappointing.
Clean space, enough room for 4 people (but tight), centrally located, 5-10 min walk from Metro lines, Lucy'N was quick to respond
Lack of comunication with Lucy'N, was given a"flexible" check-in time but then expected us to be there at that exact time (which was an issue because we weren't even going to be in london by then), changed the time for our check-in but wouldn't change it back when our travel plans changed, had to wait 45 minutes for the house cleaner to come and let us in, room smelled like smoke, loud street noise and very loud neighbors in building, wifi wasn't working most of our stay, asked to keep our bags in the flat on the day of departure so she gave us 2 extra hours (our train isn't until this evening), only had one key so had to wait for housecleaner to come get it (she buzzed up at 7am to come get it without telling us), Lucy'N booked us as well as the people coming after us to be in space at the same time
El departamento de Lucy es casi tal cual se ve en las fotos (excepto que se ha agregado una mesa con 4 sillas). Su ubicación es EXCELENTE, en un barrio con mucha vida diurna y nocturna y a una corta caminata de estación de subte neurálgica. Costó un poco contactarnos con Lucy luego de reservar pero una vez que comenzamos a comunicarnos via whatssap, la comunicación se hizo mas fluída. Las indicaciones para encontrar el departamento no fueron muy precisas, ya que está ubicado en una callecita entre muchas callecitas con vericuetos del área y fue confuso (Nosotras estuvimos 1hr para finalmente encontrarlo). Lo recomiendo para 2 o 3 personas máximo, ya que es pequeño y sugiero pedir un mapa mas detallado para llegar. Internet funcionó perfecto. Sólo se pueden ver correctamente 2 o 3 canales de TV.
Todo estuvo bien. El departamento esta muy bien equipado. La ubicación es excelente. Gracias por todo.
Malgré notre retard, Lucy nous a accueillis chaleureusement. L'appartement est tel que sur les photos et nous avons eu énormément de plaisir à passer nos vacances dans l'appartement de Lucy. Nous gardons l'adresse car nous reviendrons ;-)
