THE NEIGHBOURHOOD

Location, location, location! You won't find better than this!

Situated in Fitzroy Street, W1, we offer a top location in the heart of the West End in trendy Fitzrovia, a super central arty foodie paradise location with a villagey feel and Georgian architecture. The area was once home to such writers as Virginia Woolf, George Bernard Shaw and Arthur Rimbaud. Today it is a popular and lively neighbourhood with a residential and business mix and a bustling art scene. Over 50 art galleries (10% of all those in London) operate here. The numerous media companies based in the area feed into a trendy and vibrant buzz.

Fitzrovia has more restaurants than you'll ever get to visit (with new ones popping up all the time). Michelin stars, British pub grub, easy Italians and sandwich shops. fish n chips, Peruvian cuisine, Chinese, Greek, Indian, Mexican, Filipino. We've got them all and everything in between.

If you fancy a bit of home cooking, several supermarkets are close by (including a good Sainsburys, Tescos, Marks and Spencers Food Hall, Waitrose and Planet Organic). There's even a farmers' market not too far away.

Tourist London is easily accessible on foot or by tube.

The local area is buzzing but the flat is in a quiet street so you get the best of both worlds. For entertainment, you have Theatreland close by, numerous cinemas, comedy clubs, late night bars, dancing and nightclubs.

If shopping appeals, you can shop till you drop in nearby Oxford Street, Regent Street, Covent Garden, Carnaby Street, Camden Market and Bond Street. They are all a walk away.

For outside life, neighbouring Fitzroy Square is a peaceful and pleasant place to enjoy a sandwich and watch the world go by.

Alternatively, it's a 10 minute walk to Regent's Park, a wonderful 410-acre open space offering stylish gardens with cafés, rose and wildlife gardens, a boating lake, sports facilities, an open-air theatre and zoo.

Why Liz chose Westminster & West End

The local area is buzzing but the flat is in a quiet street so you get the best of both worlds. There’s a huge array of bars and restaurants in the area, including in nearby Charlotte Street and neighboring Soho. For entertainment, you have Theatreland close by, numerous cinemas, comedy clubs, late night bars, dancing and nightclubs. If shopping appeals, you can shop till you drop in nearby Oxford Street, Regent Street, Covent Garden, Carnaby Street, Camden Market and Bond Street. They are all a walk away. For outside life, neighboring Fitzroy Square is a peaceful and pleasant place to enjoy a sandwich and watch the world go by. Alternatively, it’s a 10 minute walk to Regent’s Park, a wonderful 410-acre open space offering stylish gardens with cafés, rose and wildlife gardens, a boating lake, sports facilities, an open-air theatre and zoo.

Great location, perfect base in London

  • 5 of 5

An excellent location to enjoy London. Fitzroy Street is a continuation of Charlotte Street, which is full of great restaurants of all types. Easy walking distance to the British Museum, Library, Oxford Street, and Covent Garden. For non-walkers, there are two tube stations about 400 metres away.

The apartment is clean and spacious, although surprisingly short of places to store bags. Plenty of hot water at good pressure, and all the facilities you would normally need for a short stay. Liz had also put considerable effort into preparing a guide to the area, with maps, restaurants, transport options, etc, all clearly laid out.

We would definitely stay again.

Negatives? Not many, and none significant. The lift was not working, but as the apartment was only one flight up this was no problem. More inconvenient was the fact that the washing machine wasn't working either, although Liz offered a 20 pound rebate to compensate us. We read beforehand that the apartment was close to an office building, and this is true enough but scarcely a problem with opaque curtains and blinds.

From the first contact to the final friendly email, Liz was extremely helpful. We were provided with a really useful information booklet prior to our stay, and very clear instructions for accessing the apartment. The apartment is ideally situated in a quiet street, with very good access to tube stations and buses. We were able to walk to places like Primrose Hill, Camden Market, Oxford Circus and Marylebone. The apartment itself was very clean and very well equipped. It was also quiet, with no noise from either the street or the other apartments. Although the apartment is quiet, within 5 - 10 minutes walk, you are in the buzzy area of Charlotte St with loads of bars and restaurants. There is also easy access to Tesco, Sainsbury and M&S.

We were most impressed with the high level of organisation and care shown by Liz, and really appreciated the helpful tips and advice contained in the folder in the flat. We used the recommended local taxi firm on our final day and were delighted by their punctuality and pre arrival communication.

We very much enjoyed our week's stay, and would recommend this apartment, and the surrounding area to others.

Great location - comfortable apartment

  • 5 of 5

The apartment is exactly as described and was perfect for our stay in London. The apartment itself was very quiet but the neighborhood had a nice feel and level of activity - we felt very safe when out and about at night. Everything you could possibly need (shops, restaurants, grocery stores, pharmacies, cafes, etc.) are very close by. There are also several Tube stations nearby, but we mostly walked - we could reach most sites we wanted visit within 20 minutes on foot. Liz was extremely responsive and gave very detailed information on not only the apartment but also general information about visiting London and how to get around. I highly recommend this apartment and would not hesitate to book it again.

Nice apartment in ideal location!

  • 5 of 5

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.

small, but very nice

  • 5 of 5

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.

Great location great host

  • 5 of 5

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.

Thanks Liz
