About Tijana

I am the Reservations Manager and our team will ensure you have a wonderful stay at this fabulous property. I generally manage pre-arrival and post-departure communications with guests and am available by phone or email almost daily.

Tijana purchased this house in 2005

Why Tijana chose Soho

The property is a one of a kind in terms of location and interior. Dating back to Georgian times, this is an old listed building with age and character, displaying still the old wrought iron fire places that heated the property prior to electrification.

The location of the property means it is plum central London, yards from Oxford Street and within the heartland of the square of Soho, located literally 100m or so from the expanded Tottenham Court Road tube station (now part of Crossrail) and close to China town and Covent Garden.

You will be able to walk to most of the tourist destinations including the British Museum, Trafalgar Square/Leicester Square and the National Gallery there. The Royal Academy of Arts is easily walkable on the other side of Piccadilly Circus, whilst a bit further are the green spaces of Green Park and St James Park where you can walk around Buckingham Palace.

Transport is bountiful despite its historical location. Tottenham Court Road, Oxford Circus and Piccadilly Circus are within easy walking distance with a myriad of buses, taxis on Oxford Street and rental of bikes the other option.

There are a host of excellent bars and restaurants at your doorstep.

What makes this house unique

The uniqueness is its rich heritage. Whilst it has the modern facilities we have put in such as a kitchen and modern bathrooms, our guests love the quirkiness and feel of the layout, the slightly tilting old beams and the ceilings which will bring to the fore those black-and-white movies of Georgian and Victorian London.

We personally love the buzz of the location. Soho is a vibrant area that is rich in culture, music and an eclectic mix that cannot be found elsewhere.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Marcella was very welcoming and the communication we had with her was great. The property has a fantastic location, very central and convenient for Oxford St, Tottenham Court road and Covent Garden. The property is presented very well and there was enough room for four adults and four children ranging in age from 13 to 2. We arrived in from Waterloo Train station and a taxi was approximately £11. Very happy with our stay and would happily rent from Marcella in the future.

Superb location!

  • 4 of 5

Soho house is in a great location, close to tube lines and an easy walk to all major attractions. Klara and Tatiana were very helpful.

As others have mentioned, the apartment is in need of some upgrading and there is no air conditioning so if you go during the summer months it's unbearably hot and hard to cool the apartment down even with fans.

We were two families of 4 staying and the apartment had enough space for all of us. Overall, if you are looking for location, this place has it all.

Owner's Response: Thank you for taking the time to share your review, Shauna. We're delighted to hear you enjoyed your stay in London while staying in our Soho house. We're fully aware that the house needs refurbishment which is planned this year after the high season ends as at the moment we're fully booked until the end of September, therefore we can't start refurbishing the house. It was a pleasure to host you and your family. We hope to hear from you If you're back in London one day.

A great place in a great location

  • 4 of 5

We were a family of 7 visiting London for the first time and staying for a week. The 3 bedrooms worked perfectly and we were able to schedule early showers to work with the 2 baths (especially with our 3 girls, 18, 23 and 28). Had some small troubles on day 1, but the management was extremely responsive and took care of everything. A really fantastic location. Within walking distance to Picadilly, Chinatown and tube station Tottenham Court Road.

Great vibrant location, needs updating

  • 3 of 5

This 3 bedroom house is in the heart of soho surrounded by fabulous bars and restaurants Perfect location to go out sightseeing or at night We walked to the Westminster bridge, London eye , Big Ben, china town and the theater district easily. The management company was very responsive to booking and letting us in to the house. We were slightly disappointed that the place,though clean, was run down. A fresh coat of paint, new carpet on the stairs (vacuumed but soiled) and some new updated furniture and decoration would have made the place more cozy and charming and less like a college house. There are 4 flights of stairs to get to the top bedroom and three to reach the first bathroom which is en suite with one of the bedrooms. The futon couches were great for the kids. The 4th floor bathroom was nice and redone. My mother had a hard time with the bathroom on the third floor because it doesn't have any electrical outlets to blow dry her hair and needed updating as well. I nice idea would be a starter set of toilet paper and a bar of soap so we didn't have to immediately run out to the store to be able to use the toilet The streets were noisy at night but quieted after 11 during the week and a bit later Friday night just FYI. Very happening spot. FYI we took an uber to heathrow and it

Cost approximately 50 pounds on a Saturday morning and took 40 min with no traffic

Owner's Response: Thank you for leaving us a review, Andrea. We always try to provide the best service to our guest and we do appreciate your suggestions.I'm sorry to hear you had troubles while staying in our house. We know the house needs a refreshment, therefore we're planning a refurbishment closer to the end of this year as at the moment the house has been booked for whole summer. Regarding the toiletries, it's a self-service apartment, we do provide basics at the beginning of your stay, once you run out of it, as mentioned it is a self-service. I have spoken to my colleague Erastus who checked you in, he confirmed all the basics were ready for your when you arrived. I believe you still had a great time in London. Thank you again for your time leaving us a review.Warm regards,Klara

The Soho appartment looks far better in the pictures than in reality!

  • 1 of 5

First ever bathroom/toilet without a door?! Owner not really helpful in solving reported problems. Noise from the street late at night: Music, fighting, car alarms ...

Owner's Response: Thank you for your time and leaving us an honest review. I'm really sorry to hear you were not happy staying in our house. We're always trying to provide the best service, therefore I'm really surprise reported problem has not been sorted. If you could maybe specify what was the problem, so I could talk to the owner and find out why it has not been sorted. We want to keep the authenticity of the house, therefore the ensuite bedroom stays as it is. However, we're planning some refurbishment of the house later on this year as it is not possible at the moment because the house is fully booked. With regards to the noise from the street, unfortunately, we can't do much about it as it is caused by the location the house is situated in. Soho is famous for it's nightlife. We do apologise about any inconveniences caused and hope you did have a great time in London. Warm regards,Klara
