The flat is above another flat which is situated above a restaurant. The whole building forms part of unique structure distinguishing it from other properties in the area.
The toilet/bathroom window is situated above the Metropolitan tube lines and Brighton train line and a view of St Paul's Cathedral. If inclined you can lie in the bath and write your ode to the dome of St Paul's against the comforting rumble of the trains. We have secondary glazing which makes a huge difference in reducing noise from outside.
The rules of the house are simply no noise between 11pm - 9am Sun - Thurs and 12am - 10am Fri - Sat. For example, no parties. It is a working household. Consideration is given when leaving and returning to the flat/room(s).
LONDON's a DIN:
If you fear that is might be noisy in a Central London then read on.
The Pub: No noise from the Betsey Trotwood pub. I think the most it has every been was a slight mumble of some Irish folk singer one Saturday night. They tend to put their bands in the basement. Acoustic on first floor. The flat is on second floor next door so we tend to be alright.
Restaurant: No noise.
Flat beneath: I think there has been an occasion to complain. But the lady - main occupant - who lives there is always very nice.
Trains: You hear a rumble through the building as they pass underneath. It is not noisy as such. Myself and others find it very comforting but I can see that it might be an irritation to some people.
Main Road: The room(s) for rent is on the opposite side overlooking a side street.
Other occupants: I'm pretty strict about the noise rules.
All in all it is alright. If you choose to live in central London then some comprises have to be made of course. But of all the places I've lived in London this has been one of my favourites as any pros out way the cons.
You'll be made to feel like you're a house mate, so make yourself at home. Please remember, this is not a 5 STAR hotel but a worn out home because of age or neglect. Some people don't read the ad and then wonder why their ideas of my home don't meet their expectations.
The rules of the house are simply no noise between 11pm - 9am Sun - Thurs and 12am - 10am Fri - Sat.

A shabby maisonette with character in an area steeped in history. You will be a short walk from everywhere you would want to visit in Central London. And within easy access to buses and tubes to take you to other places.
