A lovely apartment in a perfect spot

  • 5 of 5

Over the years we had stayed at many places when visiting London and this one is among those we liked best. Location could not be better, with easy access to everything central London has to offer and plenty of shops and good restaurants in the neighbourhood. It's spacious, clean and its facing away from the street filtering out most of the noise coming from the street. Just great.

Clean, small but great location

  • 5 of 5

We spent 8 nights in Samantha's flat. We lived in the London area for many years so we know the city well. We selected this flat because of the location. We were able to walk everywhere and didn't use the tube once. This is the perfect place if you only want a place to sleep and enjoy the city. It is a fairly steep walk up and not recommended for those out of condition or with heavy suitcases. It is basic and you have to watch television in the bedroom. Other than that, you have all of the kitchen utensils, bedding, towels, etc. for a comfortable short stay

Loved the flat. Perfect for getting to all London has to offer by foot or tube.

  • 5 of 5

My partner and I were traveling for a week and this flat suited our needs perfectly. Living room and bedroom were spacious with ample room to relax after a long day of sightseeing. It's convenient for walking or catching the tube. Lots of info for London sightseeing available. We would definitely stay here again.

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.

A great stay in London!

  • 5 of 5

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!

Great apartment to see London

  • 4 of 5

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.
