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!

Perfect Family Accomodations

  • 5 of 5

This was a perfect apartment for our family's week in London! There was plenty of space for all 5 of us, and the two bathrooms made things much easier. It was conveniently located - less than 2 blocks to Russell Square tube station and 10 minutes walk to St Pancras/Kings Cross, making it very easy to get around. There were restaurants nearby, as well as a grocery. Anna and Stephen were very friendly, flexible on arrival time, and promptly addressed the one small problem we had during our stay. The beds were comfortable, the washer and dryer worked great, and the internet was reliable. We couldn't have been happier with our choice and would highly recommend the property!

Excellent spot for visitors to London

  • 5 of 5

Apartment is very convenient from Kings Cross/St Pancras. Also, being practically on top of Russell Sq tube, is easy to get to the centre of the City for tourists. Also the conveniences on your doorstep are excellent: Waitrose, Tesco, coffee bars, corner shops, etc. The apartment itself is well appointed for our family of four, with an excellent kitchen and two decent bedrooms. Finally, the pre-visit communications and the greeting on arrival were very friendly and welcoming. Thank you! All in all, I would highly recommend.

Great location, very efficient communication. Thoroughly enjoyed our weekend here. Clean, spacious, well equipped, cosy apartment. Anna met us at apartment and gave us a tour and familiarisation with everything. 6 adults - so used both bedrooms and sofa bed - plenty of towels and bedding. Would definitely use again. Thank you!

A highly recommended apartment indeed.

  • 5 of 5

Our family of 4 recently stayed in the flat and were impressed by its many qualities. The apartment is very well located (about a block away from Russell Square subway station - direct line to Trafalgar Square and Heathrow - and a quick walk to the British Museum). Close to parks, restaurants and services such as large, convenient supermarket. Although central, the apartment is quite.

The apartment is very well equipped, very clean and quite bright (however one must remember, it is in London). The kitchen is modern with quality appliances including dishwasher, washer and dryer in addition to all the other necessities of a well stocked kitchen. The beds were comfortable. The sheets and towels of good quality.

Our dealings with the owners were excellent and they were very helpful and nice (reception, advice and arranging transportation to the airport). What else can I say, i would not hesitate to recommend the apartment. A thoroughly enjoyable apartment in an enjoyable city.
