About listing

SELF-CATERING STUDIO FLAT - GOOD WIFI, Central London, 15 mins by tube to West End. This is a bright and cheerful studio flat, up one flight of stairs overlooking a nice private garden. It is situated in a lovely Victorian building and is very clean with a modern kitchen in a completely separate room and a separate bathroom. Ideal for 2 or 3 people who want to visit London and have a warm, cosy, quiet, safe place to stay. THE ABOVE PHOTOS These were taken by a professional photographer with a wide angle lens. Accordingly, the rooms do appear larger than they really look in real life! Bear in mind, the entire apartment is a mere 28sq. meters, or 300sq. feet. SLEEPING ARRANGEMENTS There is a high quality 4'6" (1m 37cm) double bed (for 2) in the main room and a single sofa-bed (for 1) in the conservatory area. The sofa-bed does not have a sprung mattress, but consists of the sofa seating that opens up onto the floor. Consequently, it has a very firm feel, rather like an orthopedic mattress. CHILDREN We regret we do nat take children under the age of 8 due to the delicate nature of the furnishings and fabrics. CHILDREN'S RATES Ages 8 to 14: £10 per night. 15 and over: £20 per night. No daily charge if one child is accompanied by 1 adult only. MOBILE/CELLPHONE RECEPTION Mobile/cellphone signal reception is generally good. But note, that if getting a British mobile phone on arrival, avoid Virgin mobile phones, as the apartment gets no signal from this network provider. There is no problem from other major UK networks, such as EE, O2, Vodafone, all of which co-operate with all major US and other national network suppliers to provide a good mobile/cellphone service in the UK. TRANSPORT FACILITIES Only three minutes around the corner to Willesden Green tube station, on the famous Jubilee line, zone 2. Trains run every 2 minutes and take just 15 min´s to the West End in Central London (Bond St). RESTAURANTS & CAFES The apartment is just off the high street, where there is a Sainsbury supermarket, lovely pub/restaurant, Costa coffee bar, Italian and Indian restaurants including a Brazilian charuscaria and many more restaurants and cafes nearby. There is of course a typical English fish and chip shop as well, very nearby. Just around the corner there is also a launderette and a handy 24 hour supermarket open 7 days a week. BANKS/SHOPS/PARKS There is a Nat West Bank just round the corner; a Lloyds, Barclays and HSBC bank also nearby. There are plenty of shops of all kinds in the high street and also two chemists. Two lovely parks are nearby, one just a short walk away. FACILITIES For your arrival I provide fresh towels, fresh bed linen, duvets, sheets, covers and pillows. All bills are included and there is high-speed Wi-Fi access and a flat screen TV. Street parking is available at £2 per day. Let me know before you arrive if you need this, so I can arrange it for you. I also supply a welcome pack of goodies so that you will have some basic food supplies on your arrival and something to eat and drink for your first breakfast next morning. THE KITCHEN This is a separate room with a door and is not in the bedroom, like so many other flats! Apart from the usual things like a cooker, a large fridge and microwave oven, there is a kettle, a cafetiere, an iron and a nice fat cat, no I was joking! There´s no cat. CLEANING CHARGE The cleaning and laundry charge is £40 if only the double bed is to be used. If the sofa-bed will be used as well, there is an additional laundry charge of £20, making a total of £60. When you book, you will be charged the basic £40. If the sofa-bed is to be used, please bring with you the extra £20 in cash to hand to us on your arrival. CHECK-IN; CHECK-OUT - LIMITED ACCESS TIMES Check-in is after 12pm, but before 7pm. Check-out is before 10am. These times can vary by prior arrangement. A very late check-in after 10pm is not available, as neither I nor my assistants live at the property. We understand that flight delays can result in a very late arrival at the airport; in such cases we cannot give you access to the apartment until the next morning after 9am. We can only suggest you stay at a reasonably priced hotel near the airport for the night at your expense and try to recover the cost from the airline or your insurers. THE NEIGHBOURHOOD It's very trendy, lots of good restaurants, coffee bars, and shops - mostly for food purchases. The streets are tree-lined and the area is remarkely quiet for an urban setting. The tube train station is very close by - only a 3 minute walk, from which trains run every 2 minutes to the West End shops. Weekends around here are pleasant, sleepy affairs, good for families and for lovers. GETTING AROUND The easiest way to get around in London is by the famous "tube". This is the underground commuting train system in London. It is fast, cheap and is very close to the property, being a mere 3 minutes walk away. This station is called Willesden Green and is on the Jubilee line on the tube. From here, the trains run every 2 minutes (yes, they really are that frequent) and can get you to Bond Street in 15 minutes, handy for some of London's greatest department stores - including Marks & Spencer's and Selfridges. HOUSE RULES There aren't any, well pets aren't allowed, sorry. Also the apartment is strictly non-smoking. A few friends over for a drink is OK, but this is a quiet place and please remind them about the no-smoking rule.

    One of the nicest things about the flat is its convenience to the nearest Tube station - literally just a 5 minute walk. It's also very close to several nice restaurants if you're so inclined. The apartment itself is just the right size - comfortably cozy with enough room to breathe. We loved the little atrium area with doors that opened to the back lawn; it was a nice place to sit to figure out our day each morning. The bed was also comfortable and the drape that acted as a black out shade against the morning light. Our contact Susie was very pleasant to work with and helpful figuring out our travel arrangements in and out of town. I would definitely go back and highly recommend this lodging. 12 July 2017 - 18:55:00

    The property is in a nice residential neighborhood. Our rear doors opened to a view of the quiet garden below. With the separate sleeping, and living room areas it was very relaxing after a busy day. The underground is just around the corner along with some good eating spots, and grocery stores. Our host was there to show us around the flat and answer questions. We enjoyed our stay. Tim 29 June 2017 - 22:29:00

    Pleasant, very small, clean, well equipped. In a nice neighborhood close to the tube station. A bit more worn looking than expected. Suitable only for a couple sharing a bed. 23 October 2017 - 14:06:00

    This is a really fabulous apartment in a great location. It's so peaceful sitting on the sofa in the sitting area overlooking the leafy garden. The apartment is very well equipped with everything you need and immaculately clean. It's unusual to find a studio flat with a separate kitchen but this one has it. And a separate bathroom too, of course! The location is perfect, just a short walk to the local train station and then 15 minutes to central London. The apartment is on a quiet street but there are lots of shops and restaurants just around the corner. One of my favourites is the Brazilian churascaria for dinner as well as the Italian cafe Mezzoroma for coffee and breakfast, both two minutes walk away. Allan is a fun guy and Susie was friendly and efficient when she greeted me. This charming comfortable apartment is excellent value. I highly recommend it, it's the best in town! 23 March 2016 - 00:44:07
