Basement studio in Oxford Circus

Hi all, I hope you can give me some advice.

I have been renting a basement studio for two years now. i use this as my music office/space to teach and rehearse.
This is a basement studio with no private bathroom. In fact I have to knock at the landlord's window when I need to use it.
It has a private entrance.
It is one room only, medium size, with a small fridge. No access to water.

I have been a very good tenant, never giving any problems and paying rent on time every month.

I was paying £650pcm for almost a year and then £700pcm from last October 2017.
The landlord wants to increase again to £750pcm and I feel it is not appropriate.

The studio is in the heart of Oxford Circus though.

Do you guys have any advice on how to approach this and if you think this is correct from the L side?

Thanks ever so much.
