This is a apartment within a large secure block. There are three sets of lifts and it's on the 2nd floor.
Bedroom 1 – large double bedroom with plenty of space to move about.
Bedroom 2 – small double room with fitted cabinet.
Kitchen -- fully quipped kitchen with 3 ring electric hobs, a washing machine and family sized fridge/freezer.
Bathroom – standard bath with shower, toilet and wash basin. Simple, bright and clean.
Beddings are provided. Please kindly bring your own bath towels. This is due to the fact that a few of the previous guests were unsatisfactory about home cleaned towels and the quantity supplied. I therefore decided not to provide towels any more, I am simply unable to meet the high expectation of some of the guests. I am also tired of trying to wash out stains such as make-up, baby oil, hair dyes etc from towels. My new towels are often subjected to uses which I am sure people won't do to their own towels.
I know some of you travel far, as long as you are not fussy about my towels, I would be happy to provide them.
I have a single sofabed and also baby cot with sheets available on request.
I would say this apartment is very well suited to a family of four or five. The location is great and everything is so conveniently located.
Because we live very close to the flat (10min walk), so if you experience any problem, we can usually come around and help out pretty quickly.
I also state that the apartment and the building is absolutely NON SMOKING. I expect all guests to respect this rule.
Just a few things I am clarifying from various feedbacks from guests, so guests can be clear about the apartment:
1. This is not a luxury hotel -- it's a comfortable home, but I don't stock piles of professional laundered towels and beddings. If you want professional laundered towels and beddings, I can hire them for you at supplier's cost from hotel linen services, the price quote is anything from 20 pounds to 30 pounds for a set.
2. Water pressure is low -- this is a common issue for flats in Central London area. I have new combi boiler, but the water pressure isn't something I can fix.
3. The building -- there are many other flats in the building. It's not a historic house or new build. It was built in the early 80s, plain looking and basic in communal areas. Please don't expect luxury carpeted corridors and flower decorations. The bonus is that it has lifts, many other flats in the area only have stairs.
4. Noise -- the windows have secondary glazing, but there are still light noises from the street. So if you are from a peaceful countryside, then it may be too noisy for you.
We are easy going hosts and we do our best to help and accommodate your requests. Any questions, please do ask.
House rulesPlease be considerate and respectful to our neighbours. Also please keep clean.
200 GBP or Euro deposit on arrival and will be refunded on departure.

Reviews of this property
Everything was perfect. We strongly recommend this appartment for everyone doing a London trip. It's perfectly located. Everything was clean and only at nights it got quiet loud but we got used to it after one night.
We will definitely return one day.
Die Lage der Wohnung ist sehr zentral. Obwohl die Zimmer zur Straße gehen, war es bei geschlossenen Fenstern nicht besonders laut.
Das Wifi war schnell und hat gut funktioniert, im Gegensatz zu dem Kontakt zur Ansprechpartnerin Huy. Sie scheint Ihre Mails nicht oft zu lesen.
Mit ein paar kleinen Änderungen hätte die Wohnung gut 4 oder 5 Sterne bekommen können. Im Bad saß in den Fugen der Schimmel, ein neuer Duschvorhang und neuere und vor allem mehr Handtücher, eine neue Pfanne, Teatowels und frische Spülschwämne, mehr kleine Löffel, ausgeputzte und vor allem von unnötigem Müll befreite Schränke, funktionierende Glühbirnen sind kein großer finanzieller und zeitlicher Aufwand.
Mit etwas mehr Anstrengung könnte alles richtig super werden. Den Hocker im größeren Schlafzimmer entsorgen, statt dessen die beiden Sessel aus dem Wohnbereich hier hinein stellen und ein kuscheliges Sofa fürs Wohnzimmer kaufen.
Die Bewertung eines vorherigen Bewohners hat es gut auf den Punkt gebracht. Sieht auf den Fotos besser aus als es ist.
Perfect location surrounded by all major Theaters. Communication with Hui very easy and smooth. Flat was clean. I would recommend the flat for families with 3 kids or 2 coupe of friends. We were able to leave our luggage until the time of departure in afternoon. very much appreciated
There was come comments about the noise. There are actually some double windows so it was pretty well isolated from the street except of course if you have ambulance or police car passing by. If you are sensitive to noise during the night you can take ear plug just in case, but we did not have to use them.
Good to note that there are really long corridors to get to the flag. there is Video security at entrance so we felt safe, but if you are travelling alone and tend to be nervous in this type of setting. maybe better choose another flat.
Excellent location close to London main attractions. We have walked everywhere and it you want to take tube, Leicester Square station is literally one minute. On arrival we were welcomed by Ns Yang. All easy and friendly. The flat was clean and had all things we needed, including wifi. It was also very convenient on departure as we could keep our luggage until the departure timeWe had a great stay and I highly recommend this flat for anyone visiting Longon
Genial. Cumplió las espectativas. El apartamento está muy cuidado y al lado de Picadilli. Estupendo
Das Appartement liegt an einer super Lage (Anfangs China Town)! Nur wenige Minuten vom Leicester Square und der Oxford Street. Das Wohnhaus selbst ist nicht sehr ansprechend (alt, dreckig, kleine Gasse). Jedoch für ein paar Tage ist es sehr zu empfehlen. Das Appartement hat alles was man braucht (2 Schlafzimmer, 1 Bad, Küche/Wohnbereich) und ist sehr schön gestaltet. Für einen kurzen Trip sehr zu empfehlen. Die Gastgeberin war manchmal nicht sofort erreichbar, aber sie gab sich sehr Mühe und schlussendlich klappte alles (Schüsselübergabe, etc.).
Walking distance to Oxford street and cozy Covent Garden.
Nice host and easy to communicate with over email.
Uns hat die Wohnung super gefallen - klein, aber gemütlich und sehr zentral gelegen. In der Nacht ist es nicht ganz ruhig, aber wenn man selber das Nachtleben geniessen will, stört das überhaupt nicht. Und man ist ganz nahe bei Restaurants, Bars und Clubs...
Ich würde die Wohnung auf jeden Fall für junge Leute weiterempfehlen.
