THE LOCAL AREA
THIS IS THE PLACE TO BE IF YOU WANT TO EXPERIENCE LONDON AT ITS BEST!!!
OXFORD STREET, the premier shopping street in Europe is under a mile(1km) walk from the apartment. It is one and a half miles(2km) from end to end and is a shoppers paradise. Most shops open 10am until 6 or 7pm. Many also open on Sunday from 12 to 6pm with late nights on Thursday. Oxford Street is best known for Selfridges and the other big department stores which are all found in the section from Marble Arch to Oxford Circus, along with most of the big-name multinationals such as Nike, Primark, Topshop, Apple, etc. It's more of the same towards Tottenham Court Road, but generally on a smaller scale. Oxford Street is said to be the busiest shopping street in Europe.
The section of Edgware Road near to Marble Arch is famous for its distinctive Middle-Eastern character. Lebanese restaurants, shisha cafes and clubs line both sides of the road, with some staying open late into the night. Marble Arch station is a few minutes walk from the southern end of Edgware Road.
Just a short step away from the tourist hordes, the apartment still has the feel of a real neighbourhood, the wealthy residents are becoming ever more attractive as Harley Street, the traditional home of England's best doctors, has recently become the heart of the UK's flourishing plastic surgery industry.
The beautiful architecture (the Wallace Collection is a must) and the open spaces of Regent's Park and Hyde Park make this a fine area to have a wander, when the sun's out there are fewer places in London as scenic and special as Hyde Park.
While Marylebone High Street is absolutely charming, lined with traditional pubs, beautiful boutiques and shops (including the flagship Daunt Books) and excellent local restaurants as well as an impressive mix of hotels - and a farmer's market every Saturday.
A short walk from Marylebone is the home of the most famous fictional detective in the world 'Sherlock Holmes' bachelor flat at 221B Baker Street and the popular waxworks at Madame Tussauds.

- Spacious apartment (bedrooms and living area)
- Nicely equipped with TV in living room and TVs in each bedroom
- Good water pressure
- Reliable hot water (not for granted in London)
- Professional communication with the landlord who was quite responsive
Areas for improvement:
- Temperature across apartment (quite cold and no opportunity to achieve comfortable temperature)
- Cleanliness (overall ok but, for instance, long hairs at the shower walls)
- Only one key available, however, there was a master lock outside with pin code to store the key
Great location, very accessible to everywhere. ^_^
La casa è piccola ma molto confortevole e arredata con gusto. Carrie si è dimostrata un'ottima host!
L'organizzazione della chiave nella cassetta di sicurezza è un'idea fantastica. Siamo arrivati la sera tardi e Carrie non si è neppure dovuta disturbare ad aspettarci per assegnarci l'appartamento.
L'unico neo è il lavabo del bagno che è davvero piccolo e un po' scomodo, ma per il resto nulla da dire! Ampiamente fornito di libri per grandi e piccoli. Le nostre bimbe sono state contentissime di trovare persino una casa delle bambole!
La posizione dell'appartamento è buona. La fermata della metropolitana è a pochi passi e, nelle primissime vicinanze, si può trovare un negozio Tesco Express e un ristorante take away di fish & chips! Ottimo per chi vuole cenare in casa.
Una settimana prima della partenza Carrie mi ha mandato una mail dettagliata con ben descritta la posizione, come procedere per entrare in casa e quello che avremmo trovato in appartamento.
Consiglio vivamente questo appartamento! Complimenti a Carrie!

About the Host, Carrie
I live in London and when not working I love to travel, read and watch movies.
My favourite films currently are the Jason Bourne series and the Harry Potter films
