The London flat is a studio on the fourth floor of a secure block with entryphones and two lifts looking out over a quiet pedestrian passage.
It consists of:
•A small entrance hall with a coat cupboard and big shelf over it to store your suitcases.
•A separate kitchenette with electric hob and a microwave/oven/grill, refrigerator, washing machine, Nespresso machine, toaster, electric kettle and all china and equipment necessary.
•The fully tiled bathroom has a full length bath with hand-shower unit and new thermostatic head shower, hand basin and WC.
•The flat is comfortably furnished for two people, with one queen-size bed. There is also a choice of automatic air mattress or foam floor mattress suitable for one child/young teenager for shorter stays, and a folding travel-cot for babies up to 15kgs (see photo). We regret that we will NOT accept requests for three adult guests as the space is really too small for comfort. There is hanging space, shelves and drawer space. There is an iron and ironing board, a hair drier, basic sewing kit, radio, Bluetooth music system, Smart TV with Netflix and Chromecast.
For business travellers there is workspace with a desk, high speed internet (100Mbps Ethernet; 60 Mbps WiFi) and a WiFi and Airplay all-in-one printer/copier/scanner. Also a X-cut shredder so you don't have to travel on with confidential trash. Easily connect up the Smart TV as a 32 inch wireless monitor to your laptop/tablet from the proper writing/typing desk. There is a post-office and UPS/DHL/FedEx courier services agency available just round the corner.
There is good central heating and hot water. We have installed a silent ceiling fan to keep the flat cool in our increasingly hot London summers. There is also a two-way hot/cold Dyson fan for adjusting the temperature further.
No air conditioning, but there is a large CEILING FAN to keep cool in the increasingly hot London summers.
The rent includes heating in winter, hot water, electricity, linen and high-speed broadband connection.
There is excellent easy shopping 5 minutes away on Victoria Street: Waitrose, a Marks and Spencer with good food hall and groceries, the usual High Street stores, supermarkets, fast-food outlets, take-aways and some nice pubs mean you can get meals and other necessities pretty much 24/7. There is also a great range of up-market (including Michelin-starred) restaurants nearby if you are looking for fine dining.
For exercise-lovers, you are three minutes jog from the contiguous green areas of St.James' Park, Green Park and Hyde Park with great 5, 10, 20 k circuits. There is a Pilates mat in the flat and also a Bikram Yoga centre in the next block. A public swimming pool open from early morning till late in the evening is just 10 minutes walk away.
No smokers, no pets.
Guests have full access to everything in the apartment.
