This part of Great Ormond Street is known for being lovely. The locals have potted garden beds around the street trees!

On the corner is the famous independent volunteer run People's Supermarket. Across the street is Tuttis, a fabulous local coffee shop, plus their are tailors and unique gift shops all in close proximity. Wonderful family run Italian restaurant around the corner called Ciao Bella.

I had a great stay, Chris is very nice, helpful and considerate. The checkin/checkout process super easy, and although I didn't need it this time, having the option of dropping luggages earlier is great. The room (and the rest of the flat) is clean, and comfortable, the tv was a nice bonus. The flat is in a quiet street, the neighbourhood is charming. The location is very central, 5 to 10 minutes walk from Covent Garden, just a few minutes walk from the tube (Holborn). I definetly recommend it.

Terrific value and location, a car would just get in the way. Nothing fancy, just a good place to base long days seeing the sites. Chris is a fantastic and responsive host.

We had a lovely overnight stay. We didn't really see Chris but he was always available for help. The room was a little tatty unlike the picture but in a great location. Nice comfy sofa for chilling and watching TV or just having a cuppa. I wouldn't recommend this room if you suffer from a bad back as the bed was really soft but that was fine for my husband. All in all had a great stay thanks Chris
