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!

Amazing Flat, Perfect Fit and Location

  • 5 of 5

This flat was pristine for our arrival. We had a group of 6 adults and given the length of our stay (4 nights) it was just the right size. The location in the neighborhood was great, we were in close distance to some great pubs, shopping, and the tube which allowed for very easy exploring of the city. I would book this flat again without hesitation and I plan to recommend it to any friends or family I have traveling to London in the future. :)

Lovely Space, Great location

Flat was ideal for our needs close to amenities and easy access to transport. Flat itself was clean and well equipped. Anna was helpful without being intrusive.

Great apartment and lovely owners!

  • 5 of 5

Anna and Steven met my friend and I at the apartment at the scheduled time and were lovely. They showed us around, how to work everything and gave us recommendations for restaurants. The apartment is exactly as pictured and very clean and comfortable. It was very nice to have a living room; the kitchen was perfect for our use (just coffee, tea and light breakfasts). It was really nice to have the washer and dryer available to us. The apartment is in a great location, near the Tube. It's a quieter neighborhood, not right in the thick of the city, but it was a peaceful place to stay. The neighbors were very friendly. We'd definitely consider staying here again!

Clean, well situated.

  • 4 of 5

Nice Apartment, a little tight in space (family of 4), but clean and very close to the Tube and a quick walk to the British Museum. Anna was easy to communicate with. Close to grocery store and a nice pub.

Perfect location, quiet and clean

  • 4 of 5

We couldn't have chosen a better location for what we wanted to do in London. We walked to the British Museum and National Gallery, we could even walk to the West End to see a show. Groceries and restaurants very convenient. Wi-fi was amazing. The apartment was clean and comfortable and well-appointed. The only thing missing was air conditioning, but that's normal for London. 88 degrees in June is not exactly normal for London, so we kind of sweltered, but the owner provides evaporative coolers and lots of fans so it was bearable. Be aware that you'll be carrying luggage up two flights of stairs, but again that's pretty normal.

I would definitely recommend this quiet little corner. Bloomsbury is a great area. The owner was responsive and kind and even let us store our luggage for several hours.
