About the property

Hello and welcome to this gorgeous flat in the Heart of London!

This lovely flat was originally designed for one or two people.

Four people can fit if they are willing to squeeze around each other.

Six people can fit too if they accept to really squeeze tightly around each other.

Whilst this lovely flat was conceived and built in a contemporary and functional style, the exposed brickwork of an original wall confers a warm and homely feeling to this unique place.

Apart from the secluded, well looked after shared patio garden, this flat is totally self contained, and is accessed by its own independent entrance.

Generous insulation and modern central heating make this space warm in winter and cool in summer.

The sleeping area is on a mezzanine floor. The remaining area has a wonderfully high ceiling reaching over 5 metres at its highest point and is well lit by large skylights.

The shower room is fully tiled, spacious and bright.

The sleek galley-style kitchen has a 4 m long worktop, double sink, double oven, microwave oven, gas hob, fridge, freezer and plenty of cupboard space available. It is well equipped with cutlery, crockery and quality utensils.

There are two single beds in the sleeping area which can either be used separately or put together to form a 1,4 x 2 m double bed. The double bed takes up the full width of the mezzanine, so access will be from one end of the bed.

Any guest after the second will sleep on mattresses made up as beds and laid on the floor either next to each other on the mezzanine or on the ground floor at your choice. If you are in six, effectively, four people will sleep in two double beds.

This smart mezzanine flat is located amidst a mix of private and local authority houses.

The area is very close to the centre of London and well served with bus routes to the main attractions. The closest bus stop only 200 m away. Marylebone underground and railway station can be reached with a 5 min walk. Baker Street and Edgware Road underground stations are 10 min walk away. All these stations are in pricing zone 1.

Should you be too tired to cook, you will never be short of options for places to eat in the West End or in the nearby St John’s Wood High Street.

The flat is also very close to Regents Canal, where it is nice to stroll, jog or cycle all the way to Little Venice and Paddington one way or Camden and beyond the other way. You can relax in the lovely open spaces of wonderful Regents Park again only 5 min away and enjoy the views of the boating lake, the rose garden, London Zoo, all surrounded by magnificent John Nash designed terraces.

Also 5 to 10 mins away are Church Street market with the famous Alfie’s antique store, Madame Tussaud’s waxwork museum and Lord’s cricket ground.

Bucking Palace and the House of Parliament are respectively two and three tube stops away.

I live next door to the flat and therefore should something go wrong you will not have to go too much out of your way to find me.

The rent includes all the bills, the taxes and an unlimited, super fast, optic fiber WIFI connection.

Please do not hesitate to contact me for any further details .

Other things to note

Please note that the stairs are steep and narrow and are not suitable for less able people. They could be dangerous for small children who must be supervised at all times. No liabilities nor responsibilities are accepted in case of an accident to guests of any age.

Latest check out time is 10 am.

Check in time is flexible . We need to clean between guests. You are welcome to arrive early and if the flat is ready you will be able to access it. If it is not ready yet, you are welcome to come along, drop off your luggage and have a cup of tea. We can then let you have the key so that you will be able to return at your convenience once the cleaning will have been completed.

Ultra-clean modern small apartment with great host

  • 4 of 5

The apartment is a superbly renovated narrow apartment close the Regents' Canal, just south of Lord's cricket grounds, close to Abbey Road. It is an 8-10 minutes walk to tube, with bus # 139 stopping on road one minute walk away (139 goes Baker Street, Oxford Street, Piccadilly to Trafalgar and on) There are also City-bike stalls close by with great biking opportunities to ride along the canal up to London Zoo and on through Regents' Park or to Camden Town where hundreds of young people hang out on nice afternoons and evenings. The place has a nice kitchen well equipped, fine bathroom and cozy loft for sleeping. The host Enrico, originally from Italy, lives next door and is friendly, helpful and personable.

This place is intended for no more than two people in reasonable physical shape since the stairs to the loft are more like a ship's ladder than a traditional staircase. The place worked well for us for a five night stay. The only minor issue that the place is too small to invite friends over for a drink.

Splendida vacanza a Londra!

  • 5 of 5

Siamo stati a Londra 5 giorni a fine giugno, in 4, due adulti e due bambini di 7 e 12 anni.

L'appartamentino corrisponde perfettamente a quanto in fotografia: pulito e ben attrezzato, se pur forse un po' piccino per quattro persone, ma per pochi giorni e con due bambini è assolutamente vivibile. Da sottolineare solo che due letti sono propriamente dei letti (con reti e materassi), mentre gli altri due sono futon, quindi un po' più scomodi se usati da adulti; non c'è inoltre la lavastoviglie, ma la cucina è comoda per lavare i piatti a mano.

Enrico, ottimo padrone di casa, ci ha accolti con gentilezza, dandoci massima disponibilità e fornendoci informazioni preziose per goderci il soggiorno.

La posizione dell'appartamento è ottimale, perchè è tranquillo e silenzioso di notte, pur essendo in zona 2, quindi centralissimo e vicino ad ogni mezzo di trasporto.

Bellissimi i nostri 'tour' sull'autobus 139 e comodissimo per l'underground, con cui in pochi minuti si arriva ovunque (anche alle due stazioni di Liverpool Street o di Victoria, da cui partono i trenini per Stansted e Gatwick).

Vicini anche i supermercati (Tesco il più vicino).

Insomma, lo consigliamo sicuramente, soprattutto per coppie o per coppie con 1 bambino.

E se mai potremo tornare, sarà da Enrico!

great location, well appointed

  • 5 of 5

Enrico's flat is everything you need for your stay in London. It is well appointed, centrally located (close to 2 tube stops and a few minutes from the nearest bus stop), and Enrico is a wonderful host. We stayed here for 4 nights. Enrico was attentive to all my questions before I even booked, then leading up to the stay he sent clear instructions and helpful information. We were able to check in early and drop off our luggage after an overnight flight. Enrico made sure were knew where everything was and answered any questions we had. While he lives next door, he gave us our privacy and was available if/when we needed his help. He also provided lots of suggestions food-wise and sight-seeing-wise in and around London. I highly recommend the flat, and Enrico is a wonderful host who thoroughly enjoys working with people.

Great place. Very central to everything.

  • 5 of 5

The flat is a great example of what you can do with limited space. They managed to pack a lot of stuff in a challenging space. It made it fun to stay there.

The owner was very helpful, informative, and cooperative. The apartment had everything that we needed and more, and it was very clean.

The flat was located within walking distance to everything in central London. If you don't feel like walking, you can take the Tube or Uber. There's also a cool street market nearby or you can pick up anything you might want to eat or cook, or any items you forgot at home.

My only word of caution is you need to be able-bodied to walk up/down the steep stairs to get to the beds.

Awesome place & great location. What are you waiting for?

Lovely Flat, Lovely Host

  • 5 of 5

My sister and I stayed almost a month in Enrico’s inventive flat. Enrico was a perfect host, attentive and helpful—even when he was shortly out of town. The apartment is very modern with nice, surprisingly new, well-functioning fridge, freezer, clothes washer (no dryer), gas stove, double oven, and shower (no bath). The location can’t be beat—it’s only a few stops away from Oxford Circus and easy underground distance from all the major tourist attractions. It’s in underground Zone 1 which means that your travel will be cheaper day to day. Now for some things you might want to know before booking:

-It is small. It was fine for two people but after a few weeks it began to get pretty close. Speaking at a normal volume in the bedroom, anyone can hear it easily from downstairs. The apartment is cleverly designed (Enrico did a great job) so short-term stays aren’t a problem and if you’re doing a lot of sightseeing you won’t be in the apartment much anyway, but, be aware, the place is small.

-There is no clothes dryer so after washing your clothes you’ll need to hang them on some racks (provided). There isn’t a lot of room to set up the racks and it takes a while to get the clothes dry but it’s doable with a bit of shimmying about. But it does have a washing machine so at least your clothes get clean.

-The beds are firm singles. Not uncomfortable but not plush. If you like a firm bed, they’re perfect.

-There’s really good proximity to grocery shopping. There’s a daily (except Sunday) market within a few minutes’ walk as well as a Tesco Metro and Sainsbury’s Local close by.

-The neighborhood feels safe (children playing in the streets, lots of families, etc.) and my sister and I didn’t have any safety problems. There are plenty of interesting ethnic food restaurants around since the demographic of the immediate area is mostly foreign (lots of languages spoken in the streets).

-We didn’t have any problem with noise. The apartment isn’t next to any major street and the neighbors didn’t bother our sleep at all.

I strongly recommend this apartment. Its location alone makes it a steal and if you can deal with all mentioned above you’ll love the place. Happy renting!

Cosy and clean, best place ever

  • 5 of 5

We've been several houses over our family trips.

This one was the best place ever. As you see, it's not spacious but big enough for 4. Nicely managed and clean house. Very close from the major places of London. (just 4-5 tube stops from the city centers). I highly recommend this house.
