"Hey Liz, the apt was great in a wonderful neighbourhood. Your book of the hood was a great thing to have"
My boyfriend and I stayed at this Fitzrovia apartment for 4 nights. The apartment is in a great location, just a 10 minute walk to Soho and under 10 minute walk to two different Underground stations (we didn't use the bus system but there were probably some even closer than that). About a 2 minute walk away were various restaurants, coffee shops, small grocery stores, even a yoga studio. The apartment was very clean, quaint, quiet and safe and a great landing pad for our short stay in London. Liz gave clear instructions on how to find and enter the apartment and the apartment was ready and waiting for us on arrival. The apartment kind of looks onto an office building, so we did end up keeping the bedroom window shades closed. It was a great value and would recommend staying here.
The flat was quite small, but perfect for a couple. We didn't cook any meals, but the kitchen seemed to be well-equipped for food prep.
Location was fine for our needs. We could walk everywhere in central London, and there were lots of restaurants and grocery stores nearby. One highlight was the Sunday market in Marlybone, which was a very short walk away. Several Underground stops w/in a 10-minute walk.
The dishwasher broke while we were there, and Liz arranged for a repairman to fix it on a Sunday. Great customer service.
Liz is very responsive to questions and gives great information on how to get to the flat and about the area.
The location is perfect for seeing all the major sights of London.
We walked to many places but also took the tube. Several stations are very close by.
We loved staying in this one bedroom apartment in London. It looked exactly as described and was extremely quiet as it is at the back of the buidling overlooking offices that are closed in the evening. The street has a wonderful selection of restaurants and we found we only had to stroll down the street to find a reasonably priced excellent evening meal. Worth recommending: The Fitzroy Pub (best fish and chips I've ever had), Zizi (Italian chain with very nice options), and Navarros (tapas restaurant - probably the closest to the apartment).
The apartment itself offered extremely comfortable bed and linens, ease of access (lift), cleanliness, and well thought-out equipment. We were happy to have the opportunity to shut both the bedroom door and the living room door in the morning and late at night when one of us wanted to sleep and the other one was up.
We are seniors - but walked from the apartment to Oxford Street, the British Museum (don't miss it), Covent Gardens, Plays, etc. It was also easy to access the tube - several lines in walking distance.
The neighborhood itself is a mix of residential and large companies (we could see some of their workers toiling late at night as we walked home) - but it is always active - contributing to the feeling of safety. The apartment itself is accessed through a locked entry door on the street. We also appreciated that the media tower was a block away so we could easily find out little street as we walked home.
The instructions left with the apartment provide lots of helpful hints - including a web address for a taxi service that was prompt in picking us up as we left on our final day.
Basic location good. Communication with rental agent was very positive. But you should note that Tube Stops are several blocks away. We traveled mostly by cab so this was a minor issue for us. Sofa lacked a coffee table and also lacked end tables. Biggest issue was large windows in living room and bedroom (only windows in apt.) all looked directly into busy (very close) office windows next door. Window shades needed to be closed at all times for basic privacy (sheer curtains could have solved this issue during daylight hours). Certain amenities one usually finds in this type of rental such as salt and pepper were non existent. Paper products in bath and kitchen were inadequate. Otherwise unit was very clean and well appointed.
Liz was very easy to work with - process for arrival/checkout was simple. The apartment was very clean and exactly as described. Location is very good - heaps of coffee shops/restaurants in the area. Easy walking to the tube and also even into Covent Garden/Oxford St/Piccadilly - I walked home most nights without a problem. Only slightly neg thing is the unit looks directly into offices - so most of the time we kept the blinds down for privacy.
Would I stay again - yes, due to location and clean apartment.
