About Torsten

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.

Torsten purchased this apartment in 2007

Why Torsten chose Westminster and West End

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.

Great location, clean and quiet

  • 5 of 5

The apartment was clean and bright and walking distance from several attractions. There is a convenience market on the same block for picking up snacks and drinks, etc. It is also near a couple of tube stations. Torsten, the property manager, was extremely responsive and helpful. It was a comfortable and quiet place to come back to after a long day of sightseeing. If you are looking for a location where you are surround by bars and night life, this would not be for you. It was big enough for my husband, my 2 kids and me and and would highly recommend it.

You cannot find a better launch pad for your visit!

  • 5 of 5

Along with being a beautiful apartment, this location is in the HEART of what you are in London to see. You are within walking distance of Westminster Abbey, the House of Parliament, the Eye, Big Ben, Buckingham Palace, and numerous other locations. But it is still enough "off the beaten path" to remain quiet, safe, and comfortable.

The apartment is well designed, spacious compared to many urban locations, and very nicely appointed. After staying in a few very nice but rather small 1B/1B during our trip, we felt we could finally stretch out a little in Torsten's place. The bathroom is beautiful and very functional. The shelf above the sink gives you some area to spread out your toiletries, much easier than working out of your suitcase. The living room is comfortable and clean.

The main building also houses a small Tesco grocery just outside your door. With the modern kitchen provided, its easy to knock out a quick breakfast in your apartment before a busy day of sightseeing. There is also a small shopping district within a few blocks, including "The Laughing Halibut," a 4.6/5 classic fish & chips place. No car needed or desired when staying here. Many things are a few minutes walk and, if your destination is not, Uber was never more than 3 minutes away. Great, great place to stay!

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.
