Children also welcome, but I list no children to make you aware of things like the fireplace and the 36 human skulls.

Please feel free to contact us with any questions.
Heart of Soho London
We genuinely believe that this apartment - right in the centre of London’s Soho district - offers guests the most stylish accommodation you can find in the area. The apartment is on one of Soho’s most elegant streets, with its tall elegant terraced townhouses all dating from around the 1720s. The street is even pedestrianised so it’s relatively quiet and very safe. The flat itself retains the original 18th century features – wood panelled walls, fireplaces, 12-pane windows, high ceilings and so on. The space embodies English classic style yet there’s no compromising on comfort; it’s also been fully refurbished with modern heating, shower room, kitchenette, dining area,wireless internet etc. This is a spacious one-bedroom flat.
Please note that the kitchenette is inside the cupboard in the reception room. It has a two ring electric hob, microwave oven, fridge, toaster, Nespresso coffee maker, kettle, washing machine and is well equipped for breakfast, lunch and simple suppers.
You walk out of the flat into the heart of the city; there are more good and original restaurants, bars, theatres, clubs, galleries, art house and mainstream cinemas here than anywhere else in London. Having previously lived in the apartment for years, we know the area intimately. We are now based in Notting Hill and thus close by if you need us.
Soho itself has changed enormously in the past twenty years. There has been massive investment in renovation and new development but it still retains more individuality, more quirkiness and more charm than anywhere else in the city.
You enter the building through the ground-level front door and walk upstairs to the apartment entrance on the first floor. The apartment’s reception room (lounge) is very bright and spacious, with an elevated aspect and view of the street below. Guests enjoy sitting on the windowsill and watching Soho life walk by. The double bedroom is a comfortable size, with a separate dressing area just off it. The shower room is not big but it’s efficiently designed. The apartment sleeps four by setting up the two inflatable single beds with the electric pump, either putting both in the large reception room or one each in the reception room and bedroom. These are wide and comfortable beds that we’ve often used ourselves happily. they can be deflated and stowed away under the window seats or placed in the bedroom for the next night. Please be aware that - from the reception room - you do pass through the bedroom to access the bathroom. Please note that although the bedroom is very quietly situated to the rear,overlooking a courtyard, the front room overlooks the pedestrianised street and there are some noisy people in soho!
Also, please note that there is a large artwork in the main reception room which contains 36 ancient real human skull framed in an oak case. Most people find this fascinating but you should think about whether this would bother you.
Milk,tea,coffee and a small selection of breakfast items are provided for your convenience.
All sheets and towels are Egyptian cotton from The White Company.
The pillows are hypoallergenic with protector slips.
Duvet in bedroom is king size 10.5 tog luxury Hungarian goose down.
FYI :This range of naturally filled duvets is housed in Nomite marked casing. The tight weave of the cover fabric ensures no down or feathers can escape, whilst it provides an effective barrier against dust mites. This means that these ranges are suitable for house-dust-mite-allergy and asthma sufferers. The suppliers provide us with a guarantee that their feather and down is sourced only as a by-product of the food industry. In addition, they’re monitored to ensure they practice the highest standards of animal welfare.
We’ve designed the flat to be distinctive and memorable with echoes of its artistic history. In fact, our building features on the tourist walking guides through Soho, as the terrace of houses are strikingly elegant and an excellent example of these 1720s buildings. The sign on the front door of our building has become a featured item on some tours. It reads "The is not a brothel. There are no prostitutes at this address". The sign itself was first erected ten years ago by much loved artist who used live here. The sign is a joke, a goof, an ironic commentary about the history of prostitution in Soho. The street has no brothels and is entirely safe and appropriate for families.
You will have the entire apartment as your home from home. The keys will be in the lockbox outside the front door, the code for which you will be given the day before check in.

Другие важные подробности
Please note that this is Soho and it is a very busy area with lots of bars and restaurants but the apartment is situated in one of the quietest pedestrianised streets and the bedroom is at the rear which overlooks a courtyard so you should get some peace from this lively area. The reception room overlooks the pedestrianised street so it will have some noise from the people passing by but none of the noisy traffic in the surrounding area.
There is wifi in the apartment but you must agree to use it only for legal purposes and promise not to use it for illegal uploading, downloading, or other illegal activities
Early/late check in/out by prior arrangement, depending upon the arrival/departure time of other guests.
Please also note the minimum booking is 3 nights. However, occasionally between bookings there will naturally be a day or two free and we are happy to accept enquiries for these days.

Children are very welcome but I list it this way to let you know that as the apartment is in a very old building there are naturally some little gaps in the floorboards and also there is a real flame fire which runs on gas in the reception room and has sooty logs and is not suitable for playing! Please consider this when requesting to book with children.
