En-Suite, super central, West End, Oxford street, Soho, king size bed!

The Space

Spread out over two floors, with the guest bedroom and our bedroom upstairs and the living room, kitchen and outdoor balcony downstairs, you get a lot of space for a central London location. The flat is decorated with lots of art work (paintings, sculptures, photographs).

The bedroom has a kingsize bed, with a goose feather duvet and egyptian cotton sheets. We also provide you with a bath towel and hand towel as well as toiletries including; shower gel, shampoo, conditioner, hand wash and hand cream.

Despite our very central location, the flat is very quiet, so no night time disturbances and if you fancy the hub-bub of the city, you just step out of our front door into the bright city lights.

The guest room also has its own access to the outdoor balcony, and a view onto the London chimney tops. It's just like Mary Poppins (we can provide you with the soundtrack!)

Guest Access

Wireless internet throughout the flat (we couldn’t live without it. It’s like the modern equivalent of oxygen!) En suite bathroom, with an electric shower. Plus a spare bathroom downstairs so you are never caught short, or have to fight it out if you are sharing :-D. You will have your own cupboard in the kitchen, containing breakfast provisions of muesli, fruit, tea and coffee and ample space to store any other foods you may bring. You can also have a shelf in the fridge. We also have quite a selection of dvd’s and books if you fancy a few quiet moments.

Interaction with Guests

We are friendly and approachable, we love our city and are happy to divulge our knowledge and secrets about it.

The Neighborhood

From world famous museums such as the British Museum, National Gallery, Photographers Gallery, Wallace Museum to more small boutique galleries - all within a short walking distance from us.

Fitzrovia has hosted numerous celebrities from Virginia Wolf and George Bernard Shaw to todays gliteratti such as Lady Gaga and Guy Ritchie amongst numerous others. Charlotte street is famous for it’s restaurants from all around the world, with literally every cuisine and budget represented. THE best shopping is literally on our doorstep, with Oxford Street hosting numerous high street brands and it’s more glitzy and high end sister Regent Street hosting all the big labels. Department stores such as Selfridges and John Lewis are all a stones throw away from us. For all the coffee and tea lovers, there are so many hip or traditional places to choose from (we love coffee/tea and cake!)

  • Only stayed one night but nothing was too much trouble, ever arriving at 8am. All exactly as described and comfortable, and Tibu is very good to chat to. Recommended.

  • We've only stayed here for one night, so haven't been able to really discover it all, but for the short period we were there it was awesome! We arrived early, which was no problem at all. Tibu was very welcoming and friendly and the room was ready in no time.
    The location is perfect, nice lively neighbourhood, which doesn't influence on your sleep. Very comfi bed. Haven't had the time to enjoy the balcony, but did have a quick look and it's certainly a nice way to have a drink after a long day walking around London.
    The next day, we left our luggage til the end of the afternoon, no problem for them there either.
    All in all, I really recommend this place. I know that for my next stay in London, I'll definitely try to book here again! And hopefully see a bit more of Tibu and meet Machie, because they seem to be very lovely people.

  • Great flat in a very lively neighbourhood! Plenty of pubs and restaurants closeby, but the street itself is pretty quiet, which was perfect. Nice room and a good bed. Location is great: we walked to Covent Garden in 20 minutes, Oxorf Street is only two minutes away. Tibu was very friendly and helpful, we had a great time, highly recommend it!

  • We had a great weekend in London thanks to the great location of the apartment of Tibu and Machie. Nice Soho restaurants, bars and clubs just around the corner. We felt welcome and at home.

  • We only stayed one night but It was such a perfect stay at Tibu’s flat we really could not have asked for any more. He really is a lovely guy. When I informed him just a day prior to our stay that my wife would be allergic to his feather filled duvet, he had no hesitation in changing it for a non-feathered one (not that we are fussy). The location was perfect, after umpteen trips to London, this was by far the best location and would have no hesitation in booking at Tibu’s flat again. As you will see from many other reviews, it really is quiet even though it is in such a fantastic location. The only recommendation I made to Tibu was to emphasise that the room is en-suite. It was only by clicking on the details that it was clear that the room was en-suite which was a deal clincher for my wife and I. My wife and I had to leave urgently on check-out and Tibu was very considerate in getting a taxi for us for which we were hugely grateful for. Thank you very much Tibu. Hope to see you again in future visit’s to the big city, best wishes.

  • Thanks so much for having us Tibu, we didn't get to meet Machie. Everything about the flat is exactly as it's pictured. Very comfortable bed, your own bathroom, Tibu helped us get laundry done. The location was brilliant, you can come and go as you wish. We pretty much walked everywhere. But the tube and buses are all right there. you couldn't have been more helpful Tibu. We pumped him for information on a daily basis and he was quite happy to pass on anything.... It was so helpful. We would recommend anyone to stay with these guys, the best! Thankyou so much

  • We really had a great time! A beautiful apartment in a good and central area. Thanks to Tibu and Machie.

    June 2014
  • The location really can't be beat for this place. Very friendly hosts and even helped carry my suitcase for me up to the room! Definitely give you your space but happy to help if you need. A plus having your own bathroom at an AirBNB as well. I would highly recommend this place to anyone.
