A comfortable double bed just 10 minutes stroll from Covent Garden and the West End. Relax and get a good night's sleep in your own clean, cosy room. The perfect location for exploring the delights of central London.

The space

What more could you want - a view and a comfortable bed that is easy walking distance from London's main attractions.

Your own clean, quiet and spacious room, simply decorated, comfortable and uncluttered: a large double bed, wardrobe, desk and chair all for your use.

Situated in the very heart of London, on the edge of the West End and Theatreland, the location is perfect for exploring all the capital has to offer.

It's just a 5 minute stroll to the British museum, and within 10-20 minutes you can reach all the West End theatres, The National Gallery, Leicester Square, Piccadilly, Soho, Covent Garden, Oxford Street or the River Thames.

Guest access

Bathroom - with bath and shower.


Kitchen - if you want tea, coffee or to eat your own breakfast before you head off for the day. But we don't provide any meals.

There are lots of very good coffee and breakfast places withing 5 minutes walk. As well as numerous good restaurants.

Interaction with guests

I'm often working from home which means I can be around if you need to check-in, get directions, advice etc.

I'm sociable, but usually quite busy. So if you're the kind of guest(s) who just wants to get on with your trip - business or pleasure - and use the room as a base for sleeping before you embark on a busy day, we'll be a good match.

Other things to note

There is a second (single bed) guest room in the apartment which is not currently being let.

If you're looking for more than one room, you may be able to book the two rooms at the same time. Please feel free to ask me about this if you need two rooms.

A great stay. Stayed for a week in order for a research trip to the British Library. This place was great, about a 10-15 minute walk from the Library and very close to the Russel Square and Holborn tube stations. I didn't use the Tube much while I was there since Neil's place is about a 20 minute walk to Leicester Square and even closer to Covent Garden. Towels and other essentials were provided. The shower is good (better than mine at home actually). The place was secure, clean and safe. Friendly hosts. Very flexible about check-in which was helpful. The price was excellent and I would definitely consider staying here again.

It was lovely to stay with Neil and his girlfriend. They both were extremely helpful, up for a chat and always reachable. The flat was very clean and nicely simplistic and uncluttered. Although the flat is located super central the noise from traffic, even in the hot summer nights, was okay. However I missed the opportunity to make use of the kitchen for coffee or snacks, but there are plenty nice food choices around. I enjoyed staying at Neil's and would definitely go back.

Neil User ProfileNeil is a superhost.

I'm a writer. And sometimes a producer. I've lived and worked in other cities including Helsinki and Budapest, but London is where I live now and where my heart is. I often work from home.

I teach at London Film School and at the University. And whenever I can I like to swim at the Oasis, an outdoor pool that is ten minutes from the apartment.
