We stayed at the R Street apartment during 2 nights. The apartment is perfect for up to 6 persons. It has everything you need. The neighborhood is great, many different restaurants, bars, pubs and very central so perfect for shopping and visits. Roberto has been very welcoming, he was there on time and very helpful prior to our arrival. We will be back for sure next year.

This is my second time staying at the R Street apartment and i enjoy staying here because it is so central, just 10 minutes to Oxford St tube, and 5 minutes to Goodge st, so it's easy to get anywhere around the city. The area is quiet and has a homely neighborhood feel to it. The apartment is clean and tidy, has a good shower, comfortable beds and comfortable sofa. There is high speed wifi and TV with local channels. It has a full kitchen set up, although there are so many fantastic restaurants, breakfast and lunch spots getting food is easy, you are basically on Charlotte st, home of many food choices. The building is easy to find and Roberto and his team make it easy picking up keys and getting access, they were waiting for me at the set time, and just make the whole experience stress free. The apartment is on the 4th floor of a locked building, and there is a small lift which makes it easy to access the apartment. I would recommend to anyone wanting somewhere quiet, safe and central, you can walk to most places, and Roberto was a pleasure to deal with, i will be back again for sure.

Great location for west end !

we stayed in this comfortable flat in April for 1 week.
Roberto was excellent to deal with, prompt and helpful. We had an interesting arrival with the taxi not knowing where the flat was and we drove in circles around the west end for about 1 hour before Roberto finally rescued us ! Thanks for that Roberto.

Now the positives of this flat are
Central location- if you can walk easily you can virtually walk to all the famous tourist spots
Close to west end! - we saw 3 shows and walked to and from each
2 double bedrooms - ideal for 3-4 people. My husband and I preferred the smaller second bedroom as it was away from the street which had some noise from the neighboring pub and rubbish collection.
Internet access- worked well for us to research our day to day activities
Washing machine- essential for a long stay
Clean basic and comfortable but not luxurious ( ikea )
Small lift - great as you are on the 4 th floor
Good selection of nice restaurants nearby frequented by locals

Negatives

Not many really but I would agree with other reviews that the shower being over the bath may be difficult to get into for less able bodied people.
Mild noise from street.

All in all a good experience. Thank you.

Would definitely recommend this flat, the location is excellent (5 minutes from Oxford Street) and you'll be able to walk to many attractions and it's close to 3 tube stations (with Goodge Street being the closest, roughly about 5 minutes away). Being close to 3 tube stations (Tottenham Court Road and Oxford Circus being the other 2) can be very handy when finding the best route on the tube. There is a Tesco supermarket which is less than 5 minutes away and loads of restaurants nearby as well. Shopping is close by (Oxford Street) and you'll also be able to walk to many West End theatres. Noise you'll be able to hear from the flat was never above acceptable levels. Flat has a functional but small lift.

The flat is well stocked and the equipment (microwave, washer, dryer, heating, hot water etc.) all worked fine. The only 2 minor issues to point out is that the flat only has 1 toilet (which, like the previous reviewer, we also found that it can be quite awkward when you come out of the shower) and that the broadband is provided in the form of a USB dongle and not Wi-Fi which will allow more than 1 person at the same time and non-computer devices such as iPads/iPhones to access the internet.

Owner's Response: Thank you for your comments - they are always helpful to determine any improvements necessary.
For readers benefit : We have installed a new WiFi Broadband facility. Unlike the older version, it no longer requires a USB port in your device so probably more helpful for the iTouch and iPad users.

I highly recommend this flat. It is great for families - there are lots of toys, books and videos for the kids already in the apartment. 

It is very clean and newly renovated. The kitchen is wonderful and includes a combination washer/dryer. The bedrooms are just a little small but that was totally fine, the common areas are very comfortable and you would probably spend most of your apartment time there. 

My only minor complaint would be that the bathroom is a little small and  awkward. It is difficult to get into and out of the tub/shower. 

The location is amazing! Charlotte St. is one block over from the back entrance of the building (which is the entrance closest to the flat anyway) and is filled with great restaurants. There's also a supermarket a short walk from the flat. Oxford Circus St. is only a few blocks from the building. 

There are two tube stations within a 5 minute walk (Tottenham Court Rd. and Goodge St.). The Oxford Circus station is a quick 10 minute walk. Buses also run nearby. 

My family of 5 - two parents, two grandparents and a 4 year old - thoroughly enjoyed our stay here. 

Oh and the owner is extremely helpful, he answered numerous emails from over the course of me showing interest in the flat to after we were finished our stay.

Regarding the internet connection in the flat, it is through a 3G USB device. It has the Windows software built-in and is easy to install on a windows computer - just plug it into your USB port and follow the instructions to install the Vodafone software, you should be on the web in under 15 minutes. But the USB device does not have Mac software built in. If you have a Mac, I would recommend pre-installing Vodafone's 3G wireless internet software before you get to the apartment. You can find it through a web search.  I have both Mac and Windows on my computer, I had to initially connect to the internet through Windows then download the Mac version of the software, switch over to the Mac side of the computer and install. There was no wi-fi connection when I stayed at the flat.
