This is a apartment within a large secure block. There are three sets of lifts and it's on the 2nd floor.
Bedroom 1 – large double bedroom with plenty of space to move about.
Bedroom 2 – small double room with fitted cabinet.
Kitchen -- fully quipped kitchen with 3 ring electric hobs, a washing machine and family sized fridge/freezer.
Bathroom – standard bath with shower, toilet and wash basin. Simple, bright and clean.
Beddings are provided. Please kindly bring your own bath towels. This is due to the fact that a few of the previous guests were unsatisfactory about home cleaned towels and the quantity supplied. I therefore decided not to provide towels any more, I am simply unable to meet the high expectation of some of the guests. I am also tired of trying to wash out stains such as make-up, baby oil, hair dyes etc from towels. My new towels are often subjected to uses which I am sure people won't do to their own towels.
I know some of you travel far, as long as you are not fussy about my towels, I would be happy to provide them.
I have a single sofabed and also baby cot with sheets available on request.
I would say this apartment is very well suited to a family of four or five. The location is great and everything is so conveniently located.
Because we live very close to the flat (10min walk), so if you experience any problem, we can usually come around and help out pretty quickly.
I also state that the apartment and the building is absolutely NON SMOKING. 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 30 pounds for a set.
2. Water pressure is low -- this is a common issue for flats in Central London area. I have new combi boiler, but the water pressure isn't something I can fix.
3. The building -- there are many other flats in the building. It's not a historic house or new build. It was built in the early 80s, plain looking and basic in communal areas. Please don't expect luxury carpeted corridors and flower decorations. The bonus is that it has lifts, many other flats in the area only have stairs.
4. Noise -- the windows have secondary glazing, but there are still light noises from the street. So if you are from a peaceful countryside, then it may be too noisy for you.
We are easy going hosts and we do our best to help and accommodate your requests. Any questions, please do ask.
House rulesPlease be considerate and respectful to our neighbours. Also please keep clean.
200 GBP or Euro deposit on arrival and will be refunded on departure.

Reviews of this property
Excellent location close to London main attractions. We have walked everywhere and it you want to take tube, Leicester Square station is literally one minute. On arrival we were welcomed by Ns Yang. All easy and friendly. The flat was clean and had all things we needed, including wifi. It was also very convenient on departure as we could keep our luggage until the departure timeWe had a great stay and I highly recommend this flat for anyone visiting Longon
Walking distance to Oxford street and cozy Covent Garden.
Nice host and easy to communicate with over email.
The apartment was clean and exactly like in the add and the host was easy to contact. I recomend this host
We (2 adults, 3 children) had a great stay in London! The communication with the landlady has worked perfectly from the start, the location of the apartment can not be beat, you are right in the middle and can reach almost all the sights on foot well. That there in the middle of a big city at night is loud, we did not find unusually :-) We come back in any case!
Wir (2 Erwachsene, 3 Kinder) hatten einen großartigen Aufenthalt in London! Die Kommunikation mit der Vermieterin hat von Anfang an perfekt geklappt, die Lage der Wohnung ist nicht zu toppen, man ist mitten drin und kann fast alle Sehenswürdigkeiten zu Fuß gut erreichen. Dass es mitten in einer Großstadt nachts laut ist, fanden wir nicht ungewöhnlich :-) Wir kommen auf alle Fälle wieder!
I will make a brief summary:
The best apartment location. In the heart of London nightlife district and movement, leading some noise. No trust in the pictures because it is not as nice as it looks. TV does not work, there is a comfortable sofa for 4 people well, the 5th maldormirá a 60x90 chair that if you are lucky to get pillows and cushions as a mattress. When we had a leak, the kitchen stool had 3 inches of water that we never knew where it came from and despite being warned that our flight arrived at Stansted at 22:00 and arrive at 00:00 or so, we reproached wearing half an hour waiting, we started well !, that's why I understand that money does not correspond as 958 euros for 3 nights it seems excessive. In our case we will only sleep and shower, then we get along not so good conditions that were offered. That if, if you are going to do the same as us, ie the shortest possible time to spend there, the location is perfect, metro station 20 meters away and 5 minutes from everything. We hope that if reservais, you may know what we've found us.
Haré un breve resumen:
Lo mejor del apartamento la ubicación. En pleno centro de Londres, zona de marcha y movimiento, lo que conlleva un poco de ruido. No fiaros de las fotos porque no es tan bonito como parece. La tele no funciona, no hay un sofá cómodo, para 4 personas bien, la 5ª maldormirá en un sillon de 60x90 eso si tiene suerte de ponerse las almohadas y cojines a modo de colchon. Cuando llegamos habia una gotera, el taburete de la cocina tenia 3 dedos de agua que nunca supimos de donde salia y pese haber avisado que nuestro vuelo llegaba a Standsted a las 22:00 y que llegaríamos a las 00:00 más o menos, nos echaron en cara que llevaba media hora esperando, vamos que empezamos bien!, por eso entiendo que calidad precio no se corresponde ya que 958 euros para 3 noches me parece excesivo. En nuestro caso solo vamos a dormir y ducharnos, por tanto llevamos bien las no tan buenas condiciones que se ofertaron. Eso si, si vais a hacer lo mismo que nosotros, es decir pasar el mínimo tiempo posible alli, la ubicación es perfecta, parada de metro a 20 metros y a 5 minutos de todo. Esperamos que si reservais, sepais lo que nos hemos encontrado nosotros.
Apartment very well and very nice Hui.
Appartement très bien et Hui très sympa.
We had a very enjoyable stay here! 5 good friends on their annual shopping, theatre, dinner and dancing event in the city. Apartment is perfectly located for this.
Have never used Wimdu before but the process was really quite good - any questions were emailed to the host and you got a quick response.
Helen was absolutely brilliant and met us to check us in at the time agreed and was happy to get up and check us out early.
The apartment had everything we needed for our overnight stay. We had lunch, dinner and breakfast out but could easily have used the facilities in the apartment. It was quite noisy at night but you are in the centre of London so this was totally expected. Would definitely stay here again!
Apartment very well located, right in the center, perfect!
Noisy despite the double glazing.
We have not had the pleasure of meeting Helen and so do not have to take his advice, we just got on the phone.
Possibility to leave luggage before our arrival and into the afternoon on the day of our departure, which is very significant.
Apartment very well for 4 people, a small error in the presentation, there is a bathroom.
Very correct, but it would still improve the household.
Appartement très bien situé, plein centre, idéal !
Bruyant malgré le double vitrage.
Nous n'avons pas eu le plaisir de rencontrer Hélène et ainsi n'avons pas profiter de ses conseils, nous l'avons juste eu au téléphone.
Possibilité de laisser les valises plus tôt à notre arrivée et jusque dans l'après-midi le jour de notre départ ; ce qui est très appréciable.
Appartement très bien pour 4 personnes, petite erreur dans la présentation, il n'y a qu'une salle de bains.
Très correct mais il faudrait améliorer encore le ménage.
Nice, helpful hosts. Very central location, but noisy at night rel. Apartment well equipped with everything. Cleanliness could be better.
Nette, hilfsbereite Gastgeber. Sehr zentrale Lage, dafür aber nachts rel laut. Appartment mit allem gut ausgestattet. Sauberkeit könnte besser sein.
Very suitable for short stays, as centrally located in Chinatown all theaters in walking distance. Although the road is noisy, but ok with the windows closed. The owner and also, the responsible person for the guests very friendly and the whole process very professionally .. The two rooms are very different in size. The equipment is complete, all that is needed is available.
Sehr geeignet fuer Kurzaufenthalte, da zentral in Chinatown gelegen alle Theater in walking distance. Zwar ist die Strasse laut, aber bei geschlossenen Fenstern ok. Die Besitzerin und auch die fuer die Gaeste zustaendige Person sehr freundlich und die gesamte Abwicklung sehr professionell.. Die beiden Zimmer sind sehr unterschiedlich in der Groesse. Die Ausstattung ist komplett, alles was noetig ist, ist vorhanden.
