The flat is also well serviced by bus route, with bus number 7 going all the way down Oxford Street. Furthermore, 2 minutes away is the Brunswick Centre, with its restaurants, cafes, big and well stocked Waitrose supermarket, shops and cinema. For nature lovers, there are many green spaces in the vicinity. This modern flat comprises all the latest conveniences including a dishwasher, 'Mile' washing machine, tumble dryer, fridge-freezer, cable flat screen TV and free wireless internet access. Recently renovated to a high standard, there are 2 bathrooms (shower and bath), and a fitted-kitchen. Located on the second floor (no lift), this modern, sunny apartment is comfortable, clean and very practical.

The minimum stay in July & August is 5 nights other than short gaps showing on the calendar. A short film of Bloomsbury by Natasha higgins: http://video.shoothome.tv/previews/gfL8WTzb-lZOAUJA9

Guestbook comments from the owner

Lara’s flat was terrific, my wife had meetings at UCL and it was super convenient.



Lara was very thorough, and reliable, met me at the flat at an awfully late hour, and returned my damage deposit via wire transfer in a timely manner. All in all, if you need a comfortable base in central London, you can’t ask for a better spot. It is supremely quiet, and I felt entirely safe leaving my 11 year old daughter there for periods of time. She was also helpful with other advice, and you should have no fears.



Enjoy your visit to London!

Tidy, clean, quiet and great central location.

  • 5 of 5

We had a great, easy, 2 night stay. Anna offered perfect hospitality - meeting us on arrival - even though we were considerably earlier than expected. She showed us through the apartment and all utilities and even helped us understand our location and how best to get around. Going above and beyond, Anna offered her time to receive some lost luggage on our behalf so as to allow us to enjoy our time in London rather than waiting for luggage to be delivered. Anna, thank you for making our visit easy and seamless. We really appreciate everything.

Lovely stay in London.

  • 5 of 5

Very close to everything we needed: Tube, groceries, pharmacy, and train station. We were able to have a lovely dinner and visit with our niece and her friend in the flat.

Lara was gracious and helpful getting us settled upon our arrival.

We would definitely stay there again.

We’ll appointed flat in central location

  • 4 of 5

Two bedrooms and bathrooms made this flat perfect for a family to stay in. Kitchen has useful utensils, making dining at home an easy option. A few things could be updated, like the sofa.

Convenient location - clean apartment!

  • 5 of 5

This location is very convenient. A minute away from Russell Station and a 10 minute walk to St. Pancreas. Restaurants, coffee, healthy fast-food, and grocery stores very close by. British Library and British Museum are also walking distance. The apartment is very tidy and clean. It has everything you need for short and long stays.
