"Beautiful apartment right in the heart of the city. Extremely peaceful area and the flat is beautifully kept. Would highly recommend!!!"
"Convenient to major tourist sites where we could easily walk to them while still feeling like we were living in a more local part of town.”
"Leora's apartment was a fantastic place to stay on a recent business trip to The City. It was in a vibrant modern area with lots of places to eat and drink, very convenient for public transport."
"Communication was great and the flat was fantastic for our two-year-old, with a cot, high chair, toys and other bits available. We loved it and will be back when next in London."

We live in Clerkenwell in London in the same building as this flat. We love this neighbourhood because it's friendly, vibrant and incredibly central without being too crowded or touristy. We adore the excellent restaurants and cafes in the area - many of them individually run versus big chains. We hope you will truly enjoy your stay here, and have tried to create a wonderful temporary home for you.

The flat had everything plus it was perfectly maintained. We couldn't have had an owner better than Leora. She was so helpful, going the extra mile to get us settled and acclimated. The location was great, in a quiet neighborhood away from tourist areas yet close to an underground station on several major lines. If you want a wonderful stay, rent this flat.
Very nice apartment with all amenities in good location
Three minutes from Farringdon tube stop from which you can go everywhere you desire. Apartment is clean well equipped, quiet in a nice residential area with an abundance of grocery stores and specialty shops nearby. Like to walk, ten minutes to the Millenium Bridge, St. Paul’s Cathedral, Tate Modern and Globe Theater. Theaters in West End a short ride on the underground. It’s fine for a couple. Only negative is a washer/dryer that needs some attention. Everything else is modern and excellent. Would gladly return.
À disappointing flat!
Quiet, bright, clean, yes!
Quick tour of the flat: in the kitchen, among others, a sparkling new skillet, an old scratched pot that has seen better days . No cover for the dining table, place mats or otherwise.
Bedroom: clean and crumpled sheets on the bed!
Bathroom: that’s where there are the most grievous problems. As the owner told me the bathroom was built by a developer and there is nothing
she can do about the following problems:
I was told that I should have understood from the photos on the website that the bathtub is very deep and slippery ,that there are no handle bars and that the lights are flighty. Nothing can supposedly be done about the problems ,it’s the fault of the developer! I feel that it is dishonest to assume that just with a picture one should understand that the tub is treacherous and the the owner has no responsibility . As I was getting out of the tub I slipped and broke a tooth! It seems to me that handle bars should not be so difficult to install.If you need an extra set of thin towels it will be delivered within 36 hours right on top of the rug at your door. Should I say anything about the heater? It lays dormant when it is cold and becomes overactive when the weather warms up!
I do not recommend this flat.
Very presentable and great location.
Apartment was all you need for a short stay and great location to walk into city centre.
Great location, well appointed and fabulous communication with host.
The apartment has everything that you will need and the location is great for exploring all parts of London.
Clean, bright, convenient location!
The apartment matched the description and the pictures to every little detail. Clean and bright, very well equipped. You can cook your meals and do the laundry if needed. The owner was very pleasant to deal with, responsive and very helpful whatever you might need. The location was great too: the grocery store is across the street, the nearest bust stop is around the corner and the subway station only 7 minutes away. The streets were very quiet, yet with a large selection of restaurants and even a kids playground in the nearby park.
We loved taking walks in the neighborhood and will be happy to return!
