About This Listing
En-Suite, super central, West End, Oxford street, Soho, king size bed!
Spread out over two floors, with the guest 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 hotel style white cotton sheets that we get specially delivered and professionally laundered. This also includes a bath towel, hand towel, face cloth and floor towel (all specially delivered and professionally laundered) as well as toiletries including; shower gel, shampoo, conditioner, hand wash and hand cream.
Despite our very central location, the room 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!)
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, 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.
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!)

It was exactly what I was looking for and what I expected. Great location, lovely flat and super nice guys and a really, really great bed.
Our first Airbnb experience so we felt very strange entering a complete stranger's home - but not for long, Mac was the perfect host and made us feel so at home and welcomed. The apartment was very comfortable and very clean. The bed was extremely comfortable, we loved the white fluffy towels and the provision of really nice toiletries. We were out a lot of the time but when we did catch up with Mac we really enjoyed his company and sense of humour - we soon felt that we had known him for ages. We didn't meet Tibu but he kept in contact by email. The apartment is in a very central location within easy walking distance of the hustle and bustle, good restaurants in the next street etc but tucked away so that it is quiet at night. We really enjoyed our stay, guys, thank you and a special thanks to Mac for being a really great host.
We felt very welcome. Everything was arranged so it was convenient for us (we were able to leave our luggage right after arriving from the train station, so we could go and visit London in the afternoon)).
The bedroom is small and cozy. The bathroom is a little be small and old. But clean and well furnished (big towels, shower gel, etc.)
Be aware that London houses are small, so are the rooms inside. Although it is small, it was nice to stay at this place.
The bedroom is very quite as it is on the backside of the house. It is very well located, in a nice neighborhood, full of restaurants.
Good to know : the central (red) line is under construction and doesn’t stop at the closest station (I write this note in May 2015, not sure when this will be over).
Overall, it was exactly what we hoped for. Met Tibu there the day of arrival, and he told us all of the last minute things we needed to know. Room was clean and comfortable, living area was as well. Highly recommend it and would definitely stay there again. You cannot beat the location. Great neighborhood street and vibe. Short walk to everything we wanted to do. Soho is a few minutes walk away, as well as Oxford Circus and Piccadilly Circus. Instead of visiting London for 3 days, it felt like we lived there for 3 days. 5 stars. Thanks again!
The apparatus and electrical devices is complete and useful and the kitchen is the best part I like. And the living room is also quite beautiful, where we snap, read and have breakfast. What is the most important is the location of the flat. It is very near to shopping center of London, Oxford Circus and also near to many bus stops which is very convenient to go to the famous buildings and scenic spots.
Très bonne organisation de nos hôtes pour notre arrivée tardive (23h30). Chambre petite mais très propre et agréable. Bel appartement. Nous avons adoré le quartier (Fitzrovia). De nombreux (et bon !) restaurants à moins de 5 minutes de marche. Nous recommandons l'adresse et surtout la gardons précieusement pour un prochain voyage à Londres.
