About the property

2 Bed / 2 Bath, Quiet and charming residential street near tube

Whenever most people think of travelling their first thought in accommodation is to go and look for a hotel room. A smart traveller like yourself realise that paying outrageous amounts of money for a ROOM (and many times rooms if you are travelling with your family and friend) is not a smart use of your money when you can get an ENTIRE HOUSE for the same price or even less and have all the comfort, space and convenience instead. Ah! Let's not forget the overpriced breakfasts at £20/person/day that a hotel charges and you probably don't even eat it all!

This is a luxury new mews house in the heart of Bloomsbury located centrally between London's famous West End Theatreland and shopping district and the City. The house has been built with all modern luxury living comforts and bespoke fittings including fully equipped kitchen and living facilities, boutique amenities and Egyptian cotton bed sheets and towels. There are 2 bedrooms in this spacious property, both with king sized bed. The Master Bedroom has a double height ceiling with mezzanine level with a private area or work or relaxing. This includes a futon which functions as a comfortable sofa or double bed. All beds are finished with luxury toppers for the ultimate in comfort and sure to give you a good night's sleep. There are two spacious bathrooms in the house, one with bath tub and large overhead shower.

The living room opens onto a secluded cobbled backstreet, a stone's throw from the centre of town and the bustling West End but a peaceful retreat on a calm residential street.

The house is close to all major transport links including four tube stations within close walking distance (5 – 10 minutes), various bus stops on the main street 2 minutes walk away travelling to all ends of the city and only 10 minutes away from the international train station King's Cross St. Pancras, as well as from Waterloo, Farringdon and Charring Cross stations.

Back to that talk about hotels: we offer a weekly housekeeping service, concierge, airport transfers and LOCAL recommendations to bars and restaurants so you no longer need to restrain yourself to a single building and do the same thing everyday of your stay but you can still count with all the service of a top hotel!

We provide a bespoke service to all our guests so please get in touch and allow us to tailor-make your stay to cover all your wishes when coming to London.

We look anxiously forward to hear from you soon so click the button here on the side and contact us now for a unique stay in this busy and vibrant capital!

After extensive renovation they now represent the ultimate style in modern living in central London. Mews houses are now considered among the city's most desirable residences. Experience what Londoners crave during your trip - a historical building converted into the ultimate modern luxury house.

Guestbook comments from the manager

In December, my wife and I stayed in London for a weekend after visiting our son, who is studying in Winchester. Based on our friend’s recommendation, we chose the Colonnade apartment in Bloomsbury area. Caio, the hotel proprietor of Merino Hospitality, met us at the apartment and explained everything carefully, including the facilities, location and other transport details.



The interior of the apartment is very tidy and neat. We just felt like home and the standard of it is excellent. The apartment is in Zone 1 and it is within two minutes’ walk from/to Russell Sq. underground station. It is only 15 minutes away from the London shopping and famous theatre district. The apartment is clearly in the luxury class of its own and comparable (even exceed) to any five-star hotel in Central London.



We have no hesitation to recommend this apartment to our friends and relatives in both Hong Kong and China.

Fantastic Location and Quality Accommodation

  • 5 of 5

The location is great and so central with so many places to eat close by and public transport is so close, every morning we walked to Pret A Manger for coffee even though we had a fully working kitchen which we used to cook our favorite Marks & Spencer food items. The host's where so nice and very attentive, from our late arrival meeting us at the property Juan was great and super friendly. Daniela on the reservations team was very quick to reply to emails and when we landed to let her know what time we would arrive, she was always available via phone and the overall experience was just great. The accommodation was very clean, well designed, well maintained and had lots of storage space for our luggage. A welcome basket in the kitchen was a very nice gesture, little things go a long way and Merino have mastered this in our families opinion.

10/10 and we will most certainly use Merino Hospitality again

Perfect base for us in London!

  • 5 of 5

My family (3 kids ages 10, 12 and 14 plus my wife and me) spent 3 nights at this property a few weeks ago during spring break/Easter holiday. The location is great (close to British Museum, a beautiful park, a Tube stop for direct train line service to Heathrow, quick places to eat such a Pret a Manger and a nice pub nearby, etc.) and the property was spacious and very clean. The property managers also were quite professional and accomodating -- storing our luggage for us when we arrived early and again after check out for a few hours on the day of departure. I highly recommend this place and we certainly would stay here again. Thank you, Merino!

Perfect Stay

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I and our 4 children (11, 15, 16, 18) stayed for a week and I cannot say enough about how wonderful it was. The property was super clean, comfortable and well equipped. Beds and pillows were outstanding! It is just as seen in the pictures. Daniela, Juan and Caio were responsive and so helpful before and during our stay. Location couldn't be better; quiet street but around the corner from stores and public transit. I highly recommend!

Great family base for the marathon

  • 5 of 5

This apartment was spot on in terms of location and quality. Easy walk into main areas or adjacent tube access. Facilities on hand including good pub on corner, Tesco etc. Can't fault it.

Gorgeous property in prime location

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I stayed here over Christmas with our children (ages 16, 20 and 22) and one of their friends (age 21), and it was absolutely perfect. The pictures online were quite accurate, but it was even nicer. We arrived to find everything we could possibly need, an immaculately clean flat, a welcome basket with snacks, a full fruit basket, even laundry detergent! We had one question about the wine cooler in the kitchen, and Merino Hospitality answered our question right away. The beds were so comfortable, and the apartment so quiet that getting a good night's sleep was guaranteed. The flat was beautifully appointed, and they thought of everything. I cooked a full holiday meal and we ate breakfast most days and didn't need for anything. The location of the flat was perfect, being so close to everything and a tube station, and we truly felt like we lived in London for a few days. We will definitely be renting this flat again the next time we are in London! I would highly recommend this flat!

While staying here over the Christmas holiday, we enjoyed renting the Santander bikes from the Brunswick Centre, used many of the shops in the Brunswick Centre including Waitrose, Superdrug, Sainsbury's, Hare and Tortoise, and the Patisserie, had a marvelous dinner in walking distance at the Swan pub. Best dinners ever were at Jamie's Italian in Soho and Dishoom at Kings Cross. With the bikes, we easily rode down to the Thames, along the bike path there, and back through Trafalgar Square to the flat.

Beautiful condo!

  • 5 of 5

My husband, 3 daughters and stayed in this apartment (really more like a condo) for 3 nights over New Years Eve. It was in a great location, just behind the Russell Square station. There was plenty of space for the 5 of us, comfy beds and towels, great hot water and beautiful bathrooms. We highly recommend this apartment.
