The space

Private room in 3 storeys maisonette for one or two people (two single beds, please see photos), very central location, 3 minutes from Covent Garden Station and Piazza. Bathroom/shower room and kitchen are shared with owner. A lovely shy cat lives on the premises. Coffee and tea provided (Italian espresso!) as well as fresh towels and linens. From here you can easily walk to every major London attraction (British Museum 5 mins; Leicester Sq. 7 mins; Piccadily Circus and Trafalgar Square 12 mins; Waterloo Station and Southbank 15 mins)

Guest access

The kitchen, the small toilet on the first floor containing a sink and a wc, the main bathroom on the third floor (with shower and bathtub), the patio area, and the living room (which is where I spend most of the time when I work from my computer).

Interaction with guests

I will be present during your stay, my room is on the third floor, where the shared bathroom with the shower also is. The Airbnb room is on the second floor. I usually tend to keep to myself working on my laptop or studying, but I'm happy to have a chat, and give tips and advice, if needed.

I also offer a complementary "Gong Bath Therapy" session of half an hour to my guests, if they are interested in trying it (this is an extremely relaxing and soothing "sound massage" created with the vibrations of four gongs, while you lie on mat).

Other things to note

Clean towels and bedlinen provided. Hairdryer in the room, and UK adaptors. Wifi and password in your room, as well as maps and magazines to roam around London. The room also contains a digital piano and a harp, which you are very welcome to use if you have musical skills!

IMPORTANT: If you would like milk for your tea please let me know in advance, as I don't usually have milk in the fridge, but happy to provide it if required.

Monicas place is an oasis. A beam of sunshine in grey West End London.

Best possible location in the cultural centre of London at walking distance of all that's good in the city. Nicest host. Well cultured and kind person.

It was just perfect – as last time! I'm very much looking forward to staying with you again and to be part of your next gong session! Thanks a lot! Carolin

My second booking in Monica's home and it is still the loveliest place to stay in London. Right in the heart of theatre land and a two minute walk to Neal's yard, it's the perfect base if you are having a weekend seeing West End shows. The room is beautiful, ornate and unique. Monica is a supremely generous host. Her complementary gong therapy was a wonderful meditative experience that left me and my friend feeling soothed and refreshed. Highly recommended!

Monica's house is a wonderful place to stay. The room (and rest of the appartment) was clean and beautifully decorated. The coffee was delicious and I even got to meet her cat. Safety into and out of her building was top-notch and made me feel good. Monica was home to answer any questions I had and to briefly chat. She was such a gracious host and people who get to stay with her should consider themselves lucky! It's a centrally located accommodation that makes you feel like a true londoner.
