About the Owner

I moved to London as a teenager, fell in love with it then and love it even more today. I live close to the Central London Den because of it's location right in the heart of the city.

Excellent Flat in the heart of Westminster

  • 5 of 5

We had a great 5 night stay at this flat. The owner, Torsten was very accommodating with our requests and responded very quickly to our questions prior to and during the stay. The flat is immaculate with a modern kitchen and a clean updated look. There is a Dyson fan which helped on the warm July nights. It's location is ideal for visiting the sights of London. I would highly recommend this flat for your visit to London.

Great place - great location

  • 5 of 5

Very nice and clean apartment close to everything you need to see. Kitchen was well equipped. The apartment was very clean, comfortable, and also has these neat glass doors that allow to partition the place so one person can have breakfast in the kitchen while others are sleeping in the living room and not be woken up with the morning noises. Our host, Torsten, provided loads of instructions and was easy to get a hold of. We highly recommend this place.

Perfect location, wonderful amenities

  • 5 of 5

I can't recommend this property highly enough. The information provided prior to our arrival was immensely detailed and very helpful. The apartment itself was spotless and had everything we could possibly have needed. The location is superb, in the centre of some of London's best attractions. I would definitely recommend to friends and family

An excellent base in a great location

  • 4 of 5

Torsten is an extremely knowledgeable, helpful host and provides lots of great information to allow you to make the most of a visit to London. The apartment was spotless and very well equipped. Extras like dvd's and a Bose speaker are nice touches. The kitchen is state of the art, but we didn't make much use of it. The apartment is within easy walking distance of central London and very handy for Westminster. There is a very noisy building site at the end of the road but that's not in Torsten's control and was quiet at night and you don't go to London for peace and quiet! There is a tesco express just round the corner for provisions and we had a lovely meal at Quirinale. Torsten gives info on all these things before you go. It is expensive, but we felt it was worth every penny and would highly recommend it as a great base and a lovely place to come home to after a busy day. Thank you Torsten, would definitely use again.

Lovely, chic apartment

  • 5 of 5

We stayed with 4 people ( two adults, two children age 13 and 10) in this flat.

The apartment was very, very clean. We like the idea of the glass wall between kitchen and livingroom. It gives a very light atmosphere to the kitchen.

We adore the scandinavian feel of the livingroom with its calm color and a bit of wood.

The set up in the bedroom is also very calm and clean. The bed is big and comfortable and we heard no street noise.

Our children shared the futon in the livingroom. One child sleept comfi the other didn't like the futon. As one of our kids is allergic, we apriciated, there are no carpets in the entire flat. The little balcony is a charming ad.

Next busstop is a minute walk away and around the corner is a little tesco. Sandwichbars are very close by.

We loved the apartment because its not overdecorated, full of ligth because of big windows and you don' t hear any noises from your nabers.

Highly recommended!

  • 5 of 5

Description was 100% accurate! Property way really clean and well maintained.

Awesome location, lovely furnishing, very nice owner (Torsten seems to be available 24/7!).

There is a grocery store just around the corner, which was very convenient!

Only 1 min. walk to the bus station - you can use the passage left to the building, instead of walking around the block - like we did the first day until we found this short cut.

Only one suggestion:

Add some information to the welcome papers, where the garbage cans are located, and a warning not to close the door between elevator and garage (thats where the garbage can are), because otherwise you are locked out ;-) ... I know what I am talking about! LOL!

We really had a wonderful week there and I will recommend this place to friends and family.

Thanks Torsten, for making our stay so special!

From the Owner

A dream home perfect for a special occasion - it is spacious, light and fresh with real character. Oak flooring, linen armchairs, a carefully curated interior with hand made 'crittall' rustic steel and glass doors/wall sections combine to create a luxurious yet unfussy harmonious space. Touches of luxury include underfloor heating and soft lighting. The location is incredible with London's major sites on your doorstep.
