HI - We have just finished refurbishing this newly converted 1 bedroom apartment and we look forward to start hosting you in this perfectly located central London flat which benefits of being located within the city of London with just a very brief walk from three of the main underground stations and just a short cab ride ( 10 Min ) from Kings Cross/ St Pancras rail station.
The apartment is just a few minutes away from three main underground stations( Old street, Farringdon and Barbican ) not to mention all the London Buses that will take you to Oxford Street , Tottenham Court road etc with all the bus stops just across the street ) and if walking is your thing then you are just a short walk to St Paul's Cathedral , Millennium bridge , Tate Modern and the cultural hub for London - Barbican Centre
If you are feeling fit for a 35 MIN walk then you can stroll all the way to Oxford street with great ease as its practically just a straight road heading west.
The apartment has been designed to guarantee a comfortable stay in the city of London experiencing the daily London Life while being in the centre of London, enjoying the cafes, pubs and restaurants and food markets that are carefully placed between all the designer furniture shops, architect design shops and the quirky independent shops.
The apartment greets you immediately with is decor and attention to detail giving you the warm , safe and cosy feeling you are used to when you are in your own home making your choice to stay in our apartment feel like you have never left the comfort of your own home
We have designed the apartment to accommodate 4 people ( 2 couples )
the sleeping arrangement is 2 people ( 1 couple ) in the private bedroom on a comfy double bed with semi orthopaedic mattress and an other 2 people ( 1 couple ) on the double comfy sofa bed ) - all bed linen, pillows and towels are supplied at no further cost and if you are travelling with a baby we also supply a cot and high chair at no other cost either
The apartment is comfortably situated amongst some of the best restaurants and coffee shops , pubs and bistros. Most of them either listed on the michelin guide or run by some of the UK's leading chefs such as Gordon Ramsey, Raymond Blanc and Jamie Oliver. But taking no merit off the other well established great eateries such as St Johns Restaurant , Thai Thai restaurant , Modern Pantry and so many others to choose from ... don't worry about all these recommendations as we will send an info / welcome pack when you place a reservation to make sure you get to absorb the best of your surroundings when you will be staying in London in our apartment

I had a really poor experience.
Although there was eventually some assistance given after calling the support number 15 times, an email seemed to work. But at 8.30pm in the centre of London, with an inaccurate postcode, it wasn't enough.
To kickstart, the PDF entry instructions were for a completely different door and key safe - I fortunately used my intuition and painstakingly swivelling the numbers into all three (half secure) manual key safes close by, finally releasing the building key on my final attempt.
Yet - the key did not open the building door - I spent the best part of 15 minutes trying to enter - later being told there is a 'knack' to it - as if that would suddenly gave me the door opening / key turning master skills I was so lacking in my person.
Eventually being buzzed in via another resident - I then had another job - tackling the digital door system - there was a lack of instruction again, but I finally gained access after a series of attempts.
The flat itself was a little grubby, but had the amenities I needed for the one night stay. There was no toilet paper provided and not even a pint of milk to make a cup of tea. I'd say it could be much more welcoming for the price paid for an evening stay.
Needless to say, I left for the evening to find more welcoming accommodation in the form of a local pub.
I'd not stay here again - I was thoroughly disappointed with the way my stay begun and would warn others of the poor standard of accommodation provided. I appreciate this is my opinion, but I am very open minded when staying somewhere new, my first poor review in years.
Thank you for your comments although it is not a favourable one.
I am sorry to learn about your experience and since your stay we have looked into our housekeeping contract with the company Viva Services we where using and have chosen to move on and find a better company that can assure the standards we like to offer to our guests (* as you can see in the feedback from other guests the majority if not all have positive experience with us )
We now enjoy the good service from a new housekeeping company and we are already enjoying again the good feedback as we are used to having.
We hope we can host you again to make up for your experience and please contact me directly in order to enable me to offer you a healthy reduction hoping your next comments for your stay will be of a great improvement
Best regards David and we hope to see you back for a second chance.
P.S - the locks have now been replaced and entering the property is no longer an issue so no Knack is required :P
Thank you for your feedback as it is what keeps us alert to always improve our service
It was very easy to gain access to the apartment and everything was found as described on the website. The apartment is quite small but was all that we needed during our stay in London. Mark was a very hospitable host. I was ill during our stay in London so he arranged for us to have a later than normal checkout which was very kind of him. The location is great and there are lots of bars and restaurants in the area to visit.
Great location and nice place to stay. We had a little problem with the shower that was fixed immediately.
We would like to come back here.
Mark responded quickly to any communication and provided plenty of detailed information about the flat. The flat itself is in a great location, although it's certainly more worn than is reflected in the pictures and was in need of maintenance.
Mark's apartment was good for our needs. The location is great - very close to good restaurants and transit, but far enough away from the tourist crowds. As other reviewers have commented, the apartment is more worn around the edges than it appears in the photos, but perfectly serviceable.
