This is a great choice if you want to be right in the heart of things in central London. Samantha went out of her way to accommodate our arrival and leaving times, which was really appreciated. The flat was perfect for our needs and we would definitely stay there again.
We thoroughly enjoyed our week in Samantha's flat. She met us there upon arriving, and showed us around the neighborhood. Everything you need is very close by -- the Tesco supermarket is about 2 blocks away, and the Goodge Street tube stop is 2 blocks past Tesco. There are many restaurants and pubs within a block or two -- a couple of the pubs get a very lively after work crowd, but most of the other places are a bit more sedate [which we preferred]. Dining options range from cheap [but tasty] pizza to expensive, with many reasonably-priced options. It's easy to walk to some main sights -- we walked to and from Piccadilly, for example -- and we just hopped on the tube if we were in a hurry or going farther.
The flat itself met our needs just fine. It's in the back of the building, so is nice and quiet. It was very clean, with an updated kitchen and bathroom. We weren't there much each day, so a comfy bed was most important to us, and we slept great the whole time. The kitchen is tiny so don't expect to cook much. We mainly wanted coffee & cereal in the morning and a cold drink at night, so the kitchen was fine for us. I suspect many others will feel the same way!
A couple of points worth noting: my wife and I [both mid-50s] didn't find the couch to be very comfortable. This wasn't a big issue for us, as we spent little time in the living room and simply lounged in the comfy bed. The clothes washer also left a bit to be desired -- the washer itself was OK [though very small], but any of our clothes with cotton in them didn't dry all that well on the supplied drying rack. Not sure how to remedy that except to find a drop off laundry in the neighborhood -- surely there is one. We made out OK so didn't research that issue.
Overall we were very pleased, and would gladly stay here when we return to London. And we plan to do just that -- a week is only enough time to scratch the surface of this great city!
Our second stay at Samantha apartment and we really enjoyed it. It is a small bright modern apartment with all you need for a comfortable stay in London. Great central location, you can walk to Soho, the Theater district, Oxford St. the British Museum, etc. A Tube station is at the end of the street. Convenient supermarket, many restaurants and shops close by. Samantha is a helpful welcoming host. We hope to stay there again in the future.
There are are two floors of stairs with no lift which could be a difficulty if you are physically impaired; we are in our 80s and had no problem.
Samatha was great, met me at the unit and gave me the tour. Nice unit, very clean, good bed, and good space. In back of the building so it is quiet. Small kitchen, but very usable. I only used it once because this is a great location for food spots on the street. Different one every night. I would stay here again.
Overall, would highly recommend this apartment, as it offers tremendous value for the rate. The apartment itself is bright and clean. The bed is very comfortable. The kitchen was stocked with cutlery, cooking utensils (frying pans, etc) and plates, bowls, glasses, etc, which was great for making breakfast and heading out to do some sight-seeing. Samantha was prudent in responding to our emails before arrival, providing detailed instructions on how to get to the apartment from the airport, and for meeting us at the apartment on time. The location of the apartment is fantastic. 2 minute walk to the Goodge St. tube station and only a 10-15 minute walk to Piccadilly Circus and Trafalgar Square. There are good pubs and a grocery store just outside the apartment. Definitely book this flat if you're visiting London for sightseeing and are seeking great value for your money.
An ideal central London location, everything needed within a few blocks of the flat, and a short walk to the Tube. Samantha was very helpful and responsive to our needs. We would definitely stay here again.
