ENTIRE FLAT in the Heart of London | SOHO
- Lockable room
- Family/child friendly
|Address||Macclesfield street, W1D 6AU London, United Kingdom|
Having holidays in Central London for money far below the Hotel prices is now possible. We have a nice studio flat to offer located right in the centre of the centre of this great city. Have your own space to relax and rest after a hard day of sightseeing and be back in the middle of the action the next day. The flat has a good-sized bedroom with a double bed and a sofa-bed in it. You also have your own shower/WC, and a basic kitchen (equipped with kettle and microwave only). Access to washing machine can be provided if you are staying for 7 days or more.
Staying here will affect you in terms of having no public transport cost at all. You are located right in the middle of the most vibrant and liveliest area in London, the West End. Almost everything is within minutes walking distance. Mayfair and Soho for clubbing and going out, Covent Garden, Regent Street and Oxford Street for shopping, linked to the usual sights: Leicester Square, Piccadilly Circus, Buckingham Palace, Big Ben and the London Eye. For museum lovers: The British Museum, The National Gallery, Somerset house are all just nearby. There are also countless restaurants, musicals, and theatres surrounding us!
The closest tube stations are Leicester Square and Piccadilly Circus. Both are about 5mins walk away as we are squeezed right in the middle. There are also various bus lines and an unlimited flow of taxis going to any other part of the city to which you desire. Public transport in this area is very convenient.
Other Things to Note:
Central London is a busy place and there are people everywhere. So expect some noise. Ear plugs recommended if you are a light-sleeper. The sofa bed for the 3rd person is not the most comfortable thing in the world therefore not highly recommended (but it does the job). Also, the flat is on the 4th floor of a walk-up building and the flat itself isn't that big. So if you are looking for 5-star luxury and space, you have come to the wrong listing. But if all this doesn't really bother you and you mainly want the convenience to stay in the middle of all the happenings, you are more than welcome. The location is perfect for out-and-about travellers.
Please Note: Make sure you are ok with the check-in time which is 1500hrs same as most hotels in London. Check-out will be 1300hrs latest. Towels provided upon request. If you want the location but are on a strict budget, please consider my other listing. :)
Hope to see you soon in London, feel free to contact and book at all times!
Please do not stand/jump on the bed. We had a few broken like this.

Reviews of this property
A nice little apartment located above a cafe in china town!
We arrived Saturday afternoon with a plan to use the apartment as a place to crash after experiencing the London night-life, and found that it was perfect for just that!
Located in the middle of Soho (above one of my personal favourite cafes in china town no less!) The apartment is quite small, quite high up and quite noisy (although that's expected considering the location), equipped with a mini fridge and a microwave, bathroom with a shower and a bedroom this apartment is all you need if you want to stay in the middle of London with two people!
However we wanted to stay with three. The posting does mention a sofa bed, however we ended up not using it, squeezing three people onto the double bed instead. Simply due to the fact that the sofa bed was uncomfortable, and once pulled out you can no longer open the door! Without the sofa bed the room is a fine size, just don't visit with two other people unless you're fine sharing the bed with them!
The heating worked, although we didn't find we needed it, and while it was slightly noisy it never stopped us from sleeping (although we are quite heavy sleepers) The host is lovely and all together the place worked well for us!
The apartment is tiny and as Allen said, for 3 people actually too small. The sofa can only take off if you have closed the door, which is a bit inconvenient. Everything was very spartan and with no real comfort, also on the 4th floor without elevator and the smell, according Asiaimbiss in the stairwell is more gewöhnhngsbedürftig.
But the room shines with its central location !! It is within 3 minutes on Picadilly Circus and in the heart of London.
Allen was super helpful and picked us up in Chinatown, because we have not found the way. For any further question, he has at any time been available.
Conclusion: Apartment 2-3 stars Location 5 Star, Allen's help 5 stars
Die Wohnung ist winzig und wie Allen sagte, für 3 Personen eigentlich zu klein. Das Sofa geht nur ausziehen, wenn man die Tür geschlossen hat, was etwas ungünstig ist. Alles sehr spartanisch und ohne wirklichen Komfort, außerdem im 4. Stock ohne Aufzug und der Geruch, nach Asiaimbiss im Treppenhaus ist eher gewöhnhngsbedürftig.
Aber das Zimmer glänzt durch seine zentrale Lage!! Man ist in 3 Minuten am Picadilly Circus und mitten im Herzen von London.
Allen war super hilfsbereit und hat uns in chinatown abgeholt, weil wir den Weg nicht gefunden haben. Auch für jegliche weitere Frage hat er jederzeit zur Verfügung gestanden .
Fazit : Wohnung 2-3 Sterne, Lage 5 Sterne, Allens Hilfe 5 Sterne
The title doesn't lie, the flat is located in the heart of London and it's very convenient ! Very close from the tube and you can reach most of the places by foot.
Maybe some people will think it's small but for my girlfriend and me it was perfect because we were here to discover the city and not staying inside all day long.
The only thing i'd say would be that it's really cold inside in winter but don't worry there is a heater in the bedroom. There is also a lot of noise in the street during the night but with a pair of earplugs everything is fine !
Allen was a great host very easy to understand as english isn't my mother tongue. I couldn't find the appartment when we arrived and he came in the street to help me in less than 2 minutes ! He is friendly and very professional.
I hope you'll have a great stay in his appartment ! Enjoy !
One more information if you get lost like me. The door for the appartment is next to the chinatown gate and it's inside the orange door ;-)
The flat is very well situated. Perfect place.
Nevertheless, the flat is humid and very very noisy ( ventilation from 7am to 12pm) It is difficult to sleep When you are 3 people. We think it´s perfect for 2 persons.
To end, there is no fridge and you cannot cook (only microware)
The location is amazing. For three people it gets very crowded in the small apartment, but it's worth it for the location.
Hat alles super geklappt. Tolle kleine (!) Wohnung im Herzen von Chinatown. (Oropax sind von Vorteil!) Wir waren zu dritt, da war es schon ziemlich eng. Aber war ok! Bett ist sehr bequem. Das Schlafsofa...naja ;) Ausstattung ist einfach, aber es ist alles da. Badelatschen würde ich für die Dusche empfehlen.
Allen ist sehr nett und hilfsbereit. Die Kommunikation mit ihm hat stets sehr gut geklappt. Sehr zu empfehlen. Perfekt für einen kurzen Citytrip!
Reviews for this host's other properties
Allen was very professional and the rental felt very organized and official. My fiance and I felt safe and well supported by Allen's introduction to his apartment and city. We shared the bathroom and kitchen area with a sweet woman who made us breakfast two days in a row! The apartment is essentially yours because the other woman lives in a separate unit. She will just sporadically, quietly come in to use the bathroom/kitchen. Great location! The bed is old, however, so keep that in mind.
Perfect location. I would call it in Chinatown.Soho is not there. The room is very small. There are mega much noise from the street. Garbage car is right in front of the apartment about half an hour at 0400 at night. Young people with a good sleeping heart can stay here. The rest of us have to find elsewhere. There lives an approximately 40 year old lady who I share bath, but it's no problem. There needs proper time cleaning and painting
Perfekt beliggenhed . Jeg vil kalde det i Chinatown.Soho ligger ikke der. Værelset er meget småt. Der er mega meget støj fra gaden. Skraldebilen står lige foran lejligheden ca en halv time kl 0400 om natten. Unge mennesker med et godt sovehjerte kan bo her. Vi andre må finde andre steder. Der bor en ca 40 årig dame som man deler bad med, men det er ikke noget problem. Der trænger til en ordentlig gang rengøring og maling
