So beware of the stone stairs, heavy luggage and buggy would be hard to carry up. Bedroom 1 – large double bedroom with plenty of space to move about. (1 kingsized bed) Bedroom 2 - double room with fitted walldrobe. (1 bunk double bed sleep 3) Kitchen -- simple kitchen with 4 ring electric hobs, a washing machine and fridge/freezer. Toaster, kettle and microwave. Bathroom – shower (No Bath), toilet and wash basin. Bedding is provided. One home cleaned bath towel per guest. I am able to provide home cleaned towels by request and as long as you are not expecting hotel standards. The location is great and everything is so conveniently located. Because we live close to the flat (10min walk), so if you experience any problem, we can usually come around and help out pretty quickly. But we have jobs, so can't be on-call 24/7. I also state that the apartment and the building is absolutely NON SMOKING and NO PARTIES. I expect all guests to respect this rule. Just a few things I am clarifying from various feedbacks from guests, so guests can be clear about the apartment: 1. This is not a luxury hotel -- it's a comfortable home, but I don't stock piles of professional laundered towels and beddings. If you want professional laundered towels and beddings, I can hire them for you at supplier's cost from hotel linen services, the price quote is anything from 20 pounds to 50 pounds for a set. 2. Noise -- the windows have secondary glazing, but the big bedroom face a main street, there are still noises from the street. So if you are from a peaceful countryside, then it may be too noisy for you. 3. The building -- there are other flats in the building. It's not a new build. The communal area is old. 4. Check-in -- the earliest luggage drop off time is 11am usually. We work, so we don't wait at the flat for guests (arrival time is highly unpredicatable). You may need to pick up the keys from our work place not too far (5min walk). 6. Check out time -- If we have new guests arriving on the day of your departure, we need you to pack up by 10-10:30am. We try our best to liase with new guests about leaving luggage for collection later. In most cases, everyone are quite accommodating. However it may not always possible. There are left luggage facilities in the nearby Charing Cross train station (5 min walk). 7. Cleaning - it may be done any time between 10:30 to 4pm, we best to ensure the flat is ready before your arrival. However on morning arrivals, it may not always be possible, so you can drop off luggage and return later. 8. Kindly be aware that late check-ins are subject to additional charge. Between 21:00 pm and 23:00 pm there will be a £15 charge and for check-ins after 23:00 pm, up to 01:00 am the charge will be £20. We are easy going hosts and we do our best to help and accommodate your requests. More

A great gem in central London. There is no lift, but that's fine to us. Host was welcoming and allowed us to leave luggage for collection in the afternoon. The theatre shows were fantastic and Harry Potter was right opposite. Spoilt for choice when it...More

About the neighbourhood
The centre of London. Very lively and exciting. It can be noisy, but also quite safe. But beware of pick pockets as in any busy city. All major museums are with in walking distance, river Thames is about 10 minutes walk. Buckingham Place, Westminster, National Gallery, all very close to the flat. For great Chinese food, you couldn't be in better place, they're over 100 restaurants in the local area, you'll be spoilt for choice.
Getting around
Subway is quickest to get to places further away. Otherwise walking is great.
