Having holidays in Central London for money far below the Hotel prices is now possible. We have a medium spacious double bedroom to offer in a 2 bed flat located right in the centre of the centre of this great city. Have your own space to relax and rest after a hard day of sightseeing and be back in the middle of the action the next day. The room is a good size for 2 persons and has double bed in it. We also have a basic kitchen (equipped with kettle and microwave only). Access to washing machine can be provided if you are staying for 7 days or more.The living space and WC is shared with a very respectable and friendly lady.
Staying here will affect you in terms of having no public transport cost at all. You are located right in the middle of the most vibrant and liveliest area in London, the West End. Almost everything is within minutes walking distance. Mayfair and Soho for clubbing and going out, Covent Garden, Regent Street and Oxford Street for shopping, linked to the usual sights: Leicester Square, Piccadilly Circus, Buckingham Palace, Big Ben and the London Eye. For museum lovers: The British Museum, The National Gallery, Somerset house are all just nearby. There are also countless restaurants, musicals, and theatres surrounding us!
The closest tube stations are Leicester Square and Piccadilly Circus. Both are about 5mins walk away as we are squeezed right in the middle. There are also various bus lines and an unlimited flow of licensed taxis on Shaftesbury Avenue (1min walk), going to any other part of the city to which you desire. Public transport in this area is very convenient.
Other Things to Note:
Central London is a busy place and there are people everywhere. So expect some noise. Ear plugs recommended if you are a light-sleeper. Also, the flat is on the 3rd floor of a walk-up building and the flat itself isn't that big. So if you are looking for 5-star luxury and space, you have come to the wrong listing. But if all this doesn't really bother you and you mainly want the convenience to stay in the middle of all the happenings, you are more than welcome. The location is perfect for out-and-about travellers.
Please Note: Make sure you are ok with the check-in time which is 1500hrs same as most hotels in London. Check-out time is 1300hrs latest. Towels provided upon request. If you want total privacy, please consider our other listing which is the same location. :)
Hope to see you soon in London, feel free to contact and book at all times!
House rulesYou are not charged for the cleaning to keep the price down, so please look after the flat during your stay. It doesn't mean that you have to do the cleaning yourself/selves. Oh no... Just don't be too messy. Like staying at a friends house. I'm sure you get the idea. :)
Please do not stand/jump on the bed. We had a few broken like this.
Nobody should stay in the flat except those people agreed with the flat owners in advance.
Guests should not introduce strangers to the building.
Please respect other residents in the building by limiting noise when you come and go up the communal staircase.
Please do not smoke in the flat.
Please do not play loud music or otherwise make loud noise.

Reviews of this property
Allen was very professional and the rental felt very organized and official. My fiance and I felt safe and well supported by Allen's introduction to his apartment and city. We shared the bathroom and kitchen area with a sweet woman who made us breakfast two days in a row! The apartment is essentially yours because the other woman lives in a separate unit. She will just sporadically, quietly come in to use the bathroom/kitchen. Great location! The bed is old, however, so keep that in mind.
Perfect location. I would call it in Chinatown.Soho is not there. The room is very small. There are mega much noise from the street. Garbage car is right in front of the apartment about half an hour at 0400 at night. Young people with a good sleeping heart can stay here. The rest of us have to find elsewhere. There lives an approximately 40 year old lady who I share bath, but it's no problem. There needs proper time cleaning and painting
Perfekt beliggenhed . Jeg vil kalde det i Chinatown.Soho ligger ikke der. Værelset er meget småt. Der er mega meget støj fra gaden. Skraldebilen står lige foran lejligheden ca en halv time kl 0400 om natten. Unge mennesker med et godt sovehjerte kan bo her. Vi andre må finde andre steder. Der bor en ca 40 årig dame som man deler bad med, men det er ikke noget problem. Der trænger til en ordentlig gang rengøring og maling
Allen was the perfect host!, the location couldn't be better and the room great. We had a great time in london and we hope to come back soon!
Very good location, a bit small room with very shaky bed. Overall very good, and the agreement with Allen has worked wonderfully.
Sehr gute Lage, etwas kleines Zimmer mit sehr wackeligem Bett. Insgesamt sehr gut, auch die Absprache mit Allen hat wunderbar funktioniert.
Habitación recomendable solo para una persona, que viaje solo, y no le importe el ruido por la noche, y compartir cocina y baño. Ya que esto no viene en la oferta, pero debería. En cuanto a la ubicación está muy bien situado, muy céntrico.

A nice little apartment located above a cafe in china town!
We arrived Saturday afternoon with a plan to use the apartment as a place to crash after experiencing the London night-life, and found that it was perfect for just that!
Located in the middle of Soho (above one of my personal favourite cafes in china town no less!) The apartment is quite small, quite high up and quite noisy (although that's expected considering the location), equipped with a mini fridge and a microwave, bathroom with a shower and a bedroom this apartment is all you need if you want to stay in the middle of London with two people!
However we wanted to stay with three. The posting does mention a sofa bed, however we ended up not using it, squeezing three people onto the double bed instead. Simply due to the fact that the sofa bed was uncomfortable, and once pulled out you can no longer open the door! Without the sofa bed the room is a fine size, just don't visit with two other people unless you're fine sharing the bed with them!
The heating worked, although we didn't find we needed it, and while it was slightly noisy it never stopped us from sleeping (although we are quite heavy sleepers) The host is lovely and all together the place worked well for us!
Everything was working out perfect - nice little flat in the centre of London!!!
The apartment is tiny and as Allen said, for 3 people actually too small. The sofa can only take off if you have closed the door, which is a bit inconvenient. Everything was very spartan and with no real comfort, also on the 4th floor without elevator and the smell, according Asiaimbiss in the stairwell is more gewöhnhngsbedürftig.
But the room shines with its central location !! It is within 3 minutes on Picadilly Circus and in the heart of London.
Allen was super helpful and picked us up in Chinatown, because we have not found the way. For any further question, he has at any time been available.
Conclusion: Apartment 2-3 stars Location 5 Star, Allen's help 5 stars
Die Wohnung ist winzig und wie Allen sagte, für 3 Personen eigentlich zu klein. Das Sofa geht nur ausziehen, wenn man die Tür geschlossen hat, was etwas ungünstig ist. Alles sehr spartanisch und ohne wirklichen Komfort, außerdem im 4. Stock ohne Aufzug und der Geruch, nach Asiaimbiss im Treppenhaus ist eher gewöhnhngsbedürftig.
Aber das Zimmer glänzt durch seine zentrale Lage!! Man ist in 3 Minuten am Picadilly Circus und mitten im Herzen von London.
Allen war super hilfsbereit und hat uns in chinatown abgeholt, weil wir den Weg nicht gefunden haben. Auch für jegliche weitere Frage hat er jederzeit zur Verfügung gestanden .
Fazit : Wohnung 2-3 Sterne, Lage 5 Sterne, Allens Hilfe 5 Sterne
