Bijou flat, perfect location

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at the flat in August. It is the perfect location for walking and exploring- in the heart of Soho, close to Covent Garden, Carnaby St, Oxford St, The British Museum, restaurants, shopping, night life, culture, the list goes on and in... YOU ARE IN THE HEART OF LONDON!

The flat is on the small side, but it has all the luxuries you need on vacation- kitchen, tv, comfy bed, modern bathroom, washer/dryer and a great outdoor space to hang out. We were very surprised by how quiet this place is being right on Old Compton, but you don’t hear the street noise at all. I’d definitely recommend it!

Lovely flat in the perfect area of London

  • 5 of 5

Thanks so much for a lovely stay right in the heart of one of my favorite neighborhoods of London. Easy access to everything and while there are a few stairs it just means you get a little workout while you stay. Cheers.

Fantastic Location & Charming Flat

  • 4 of 5

My wife and I had a wonderful time in the heart of Soho. So many good theatres and restaurants within easy walking distance... The flat is very tastefully done and the rooftop terrace is fantastic. Would have preferred that the bedroom had a door at the opening rather than a curtain. We both found the bed to be uncomfortable. Lots of stairs!

Convenient location to everything. We love the rooftop patio

  • 4 of 5

We had another just lovely time. The stairwell up to the fourth floor is becoming a struggle for us. The apartment is well equipped with all the amenities.

Would not pick SOHO area again. Too noisy and crowded. Sheets and towels definitely not luxurious. Space adequate and clean. Very nice little kitchen but we didn't use it.

Owner's Response: I am sorry that you didn’t like the Soho area as it was too noisy and crowded for you. It is in the centre of London and is well known as being the liveliest area. For many people it is the reason that they do choose the area. As mentioned on our many great reviews, Soho is lively in the street but it is quiet in the apartment. In the description it says “It is on the top (4th) floor with no lift”. I am surprised that you then didn’t realize that this would mean that it would have lots of steps. I am disappointed that you gave the impression (in capital letters) that we left out information. Also many of the other past guests mention in their reviews that the area is lively and that there are many steps. They still give us 5 star reviews and in a joking way they often say the stairs help them deserve the cakes that they ate in the many excellent bakeries in the street. I would recommend that people read as many reviews as possible before booking any holiday rental. At the time of writing, we have had 70 four or five star reviews and TWO lower reviews – including yours. It’s a shame that the area wasn’t to your taste but it a bit unfair to mark us down for that. I am pleased that you liked the kitchen
