Apartment in London - Short Walking Distance to St.Pancras And Russel Square. Close To Covent Garden And Soho
This is a bright and airy second floor flat in a Georgian house. The open-plan lounge lounge and the bedroom can be separated by large sliding doors. The lounge and kitchen to the front overlook Regent Square, while the bedroom to the rear is south facing over St.Georges Gardens so the flat is surrounded by mature trees. A mix of original features, modern design and some art give the flat its sophisticated but cosy atmosphere.
It is my privat flat, when I rent out I'm leaving London for Switzerland or France, therefore the minimum rental period is one week.

About Dieter Schindler
I'm a German living in London and Zürich, interested in arts and design. I do travel quite a lot but also love the quiet enjoyment of my cozy home the times I spend in London.
Dieter Schindler purchased this Apartment in 2009
Why Dieter Schindler chose King's Cross
When I passed St.Georges garden on my walk to Soho I always looked up to the windows of the Georgian houses facing the park. I envied the people living so central, close to Soho and Covent Garden, but nevertheless in such a green and quiet neighborhood. One day by coincidence I discovered that the flat was sold in an auction, went there and finally got it. The flat was in a a very poor state. I redesigned the lay out, renovated everything from scratch and furnished it with a mix of modern and some few antique objects. Finally brought some of my own sculptures and collected art. The flat is now my true little gem in Central London
What makes this Apartment unique
Its fantastic to be able to just walk home after an evening out in the bars or take the barclays bike to reach Soho, Covent Garden and Westminster in just a 10 minutes bike ride. Coming back from the hustling and bustling city, walking home through the gardens of Bloomsbury and sitting on the window with a cup of tea, enjoying the view into St.George's garden or having dinner with the view on Regent Square is just the right balance you need to come down.

An apartment you would want to return to
This is a quiet apartment in a quiet neighborhood, yet close to all one needs. Dieter, while not there, was quick to respond to any questions and has a thorough list of information and directions. No mysteries.
We really enjoyed and appreciated the flat: it is airy and spacious, clean, quiet, well equipped, and very well located.
Our only suggestion is that the instructions for the key safe specify which box. Unfortunately, we struggled to access the keys on arrival.
All other instructions are crystal clear and very helpful.
Thank you very much Stuart, its always nice to hear the guests enjoy the flat. I apologise for the key safe. I ordered a new and better one which will be installed in November 2017

we stayed here for 8 days in july 2016 and we found dieter to be a great host! his flat is a modern design with a clean, open plan, and it's quiet and close to everything. if you want to avoid the tube you can hail a cab the second you walk out the front door. (my husband and i never waited more that 5 minutes for one to come down the road, and usually one was there in less than a minute). i would say that the flat is best for 2 adults, but no kids. he has nice objects around, as well as a lot of glass and tile which needs to be cleaned before you leave, so the space is really suited for 2 who don't get things too messy. he's done a great job with a small space. everything is white and breezy with a few interesting art pieces. all those mirrors do a great job of opening the space, even in the shower! we've already set up our next reservation! thank you, dieter, for sharing your great place ! Lisa and Greg
