Lydia's apartment is modern, bright, quiet, very well located and a just few minutes walk to Barbican tube station. Lydia was a very accommodating host and we really enjoyed staying at her apartment.

This flat is very modern and has all the amenities that we needed for my family's trip to London. We loved the location for all the restaurants, shops, and cultural destinations nearby. And we couldn't have asked for better access to mass transit with the tube about a block away and a bus stop just across the street.

Good stay in a good spot to start exploring London--close to the tube station but also pretty walkable to the touristy spots. I came here for work and everything worked out well.

We enjoyed our one week stay at this Barbican flat. This is 4 minutes walk away from tube, near shops and sights. Once inside the flat, it's very cozy, modern and quite. The kitchen and other utilities are of good quality. The bathrooms is new and clean. This being in central London is near good number of eating joints, bars, cafes and convenience stores. I recommend this place for your stay in Central London.

I have lived in London for sixteen years. I love travelling, and am dedicated to providing a great experience to all of my guests. My apartments are in Clerkenwell and having lived here myself for a number of years, I can truly say there is no better place to experience London from!
