A water filter is also supplied.There's a filter coffee maker, a French Press There's an excellent choice of shops that sell fresh ground coffee.

We Just added a new sofa bed.

The kitchen has all mod cons and also a selection of cookery books should you wish to experiment at home.

There's a selection of grocery shops within a five minute walk of the flat, Sainsbury's, Marks and Spencer, Tesco and Waitrose will have all you need for your stay.

There's the independent Villandry on Great Portland St for the more special culinary treat...and also the simply fantastic La Fromagerie for cheese.This is one of the best cheese shops in London.

The bathroom has very good water pressure and constant hot water ,so there will be no worries for larger groups staying at the flat.The flat benefits from independent central heating for the somewhat cold British winters.

The bedroom has a wardrobe with hanging space and suitcases can easily be put to the side.

Cleveland Street is home to a number of local shops, cafe's and restaurants and is well positioned close to Charlotte Street and Oxford Street.

Fitzrovia is a neighbourhood in central London, near London's West End lying partly in the London Borough of Camden (in the east) and partly in the City of Westminster (in the west); and situated between Marylebone and Bloomsbury and north of Soho.

More about Fitzrovia: This historically bohemian area was once home to such writers as Virginia Woolf, George Bernard Shaw and Arthur Rimbaud, Bob Dylan played one of his first shows just down the road.

A few minutes away is Fitzroy Sq...a piece of Georgian design that has aged beautifully.A few more blocks away and one can view the architecture of Nash and his row of terrace houses near Regents Park.

For those traveling with young children a visit to Pollocks Toy Museum on nearby Whitfield St will be sure to delight them.The perfect place to pick up gifts for those back home! I have to admit even I go in there and I'm always in awe of the treasures of childhoods past that they have on display.Next door is their theatre print shop...again...well worth a visit. Whilst on the subject of theatre there's the Theatre Bookshop on Conway St with its numerous books on all theatre related matters.

The number of restaurants on nearby Charlotte St really is amazing.There's something to cater to every taste and budget! We can assure you that you'll love this street.This street is less than 5 minutes from the flat.

The London Zoo is nearby and this should delight all ages.

The nearby shopping on Oxford St will be a real treat for people who love to shop until they drop. From high end shops to the two very large budget Primarks,one will find something to take back home with them. After a morning strolling aroud the West End a special treat of a full English Afternnoon Tea will sure to become a special memory of your time in London. Yes, it can be somewhat expensive but it should be something that should be tried if you have the time and budget. The Ritz is by far the best in London.The Savoy, The Dorchester,Browns, and Clariddge's are all expensive but worth it.The National Portrait Gallery,The Wallace Collection and the Langham are more affordable and equally as good. Fortnum and Mason on nearby Picacadilly is also worth it. Their food hall is amazing/and even if you don't have time for the full Afternoon Tea you could buy some tea to take back with you. The tin cans are simply stunning in design.A great gift for those back home.

Why James and Charlene chose Camden & Covent Garden

James and myself simply love the area of Fitzrovia. We own the flat above also! It's such a great area to stay in and the street is very quiet. There's very much a community feel to it with the owners of the numerous cafes and restaurants always saying hello.It's sometime hard to believe that this is right in the centre of London as the neighbourhood is so friendly.There are great quality shops with minutes of the flats and you can even walk to Covent Garden from here.The main shopping areas of Regent St and Oxford St are just down the road.

Comfortable and well located

  • 5 of 5

This flat worked very nicely for my wife and me. Located in the shadow of the BT tower (really), it allows you to walk comfortably to Regent's Park, Marylebone, Bloomsbury, Soho, and beyond. It's well appointed, the bed is comfortable, and the bathroom is well planned and with good fixtures. We arrived to some burned out light bulbs, a non-functioning electric pot, and a door handle missing a screw, but all but the last were quickly and cheerfully fixed by the delightful owner. It would be nice to have a top sheet or light blanket for those who, like me, get much too hot sleeping under a heavy quilt on a warm spring night. Highly recommended.

A nice stay with a great landlord

  • 4 of 5

The Fitzrovia apartment was ideally located for us, with easy proximity to three tube stations and lots of buses. Our host, James, could not have been more helpful or responsive. I left my Kindle in the apartment and he immediately sent it to me! He was friendly and helpful at every turn.

Furnishings and supplies were adequate for our needs for a week. The bed was so comfortable that we often didn't want to leave it. Washer and dryer, and dishwasher all worked great. Tiny but new bathroom.

We were able to meet when we arrived in London, which is a huge plus for us. This flat met our needs and James was wonderful.

I give 4 stars instead of 5 because a little spit and polish and organization were needed to make it perfect, but the price and facilities were quite good, and again, James was great.

all that we needed in a quiet London community

  • 3 of 5

My husband and I stayed 6 nights on holiday as first time visitors to London. My first impression was the place was a little outdated. We got used to coming home and relaxing in the apartment every night after a busy day sightseeing. Kitchen area was great,equipped with anything you would need. As was bedroom. Washer and dryer were much appreciated.Just needed a couple new pillows on the chairs and a pop of color. Cleveland street was not much to look at, but everywhere within a 2 block radius was delightful. a small park, a big park, several Tube stations within walking distance. The proximity of restaurants on Charlotte St. was fabulous and such a variety.

James was very easy to work with and just delightful, although we did not need much, and Charlene let us in and gave us a lot of help with navigating area and transit. Very easy to work with.

Owner's Response: Thank you . We're pleased you enjoyed your stay. We have updated the mid century modern chair(as it could have been abit too retro)with a more comfortable chair which fits in very well with the decor of the flat.It's great that you had the chance to eat out on Charlotte St,as it really is one of the best places for dining in Central London.We hope you'll stay in Fitzrovia again. Best Wishes James and Charlene

Great place; very centrally located..

  • 5 of 5

Wonderful cosy place. Clean and everything in place. There is a big double bed in the bedroom and futons in the living room. The fireplace is decoration, it is not a real fireplace. The kitchen had a coffee machine with tabs. TV and WLAN were fine. We were surprised how quiet the place is as it is very centrally located. A few blocks to the Oxford street; a few minutes walk to the Regents Park and Great Portland Street. Many restaurants in the neighbourhood. We tried the Indian restaurants two blocks away. It was fantastic. The corridor of the house to get into the flat is quite narrow. We will come again.

Great location in Fitzrovia!

  • 4 of 5

Perfect location in Fitzrovia! Warren tube station quite near. Comfortable and convenient with everything you'd want including small kitchen. Upstairs people were a bit noisy but on the whole it was a great flat. I recommend it!

Situated in Central London ,a few minutes walk to Oxford Steet. There are so many attractions close by that public transport or a car won't be necessary! However, if you do wish to travel outside of the West End ,our flat is within a 5 minute walk of three tube stations. The area is very safe and has very little traffic!
