We enjoyed the apartment which was great for two couples. In an interesting area we liked The Lamb, CiaoBella, and Lady Ottoline for dinner. Everything is clean and neat and well thought out. Lots of storage for clothes. The only down side is the shower which leaks onto the floor no matter what you do. I wish our greeter had shown us how to use the cooktop, which we did figure out. Otherwise just about perfect! Highly recommended.
We just loved this flat. The location was nice & quiet but close to everything! The owners were so accommodating & our driver, Mark, was charming. Very clean & beautifully decorated. I would just caution that it is a 4th floor unit which might be hard for some renters. It was no problem for us at all! Thanks & we will be back!!!
Comfortable stay and excellent location
Highly recommend this flat. It was very comfortable and nicely furnished. This flat is located in Bloombury and MANY attractions/pubs/stores are within walking distance. It was a pleasure dealing with the realtor - top notch and VERY PROFESSIONAL. We were delayed 15 hours before our departure and everyone was so helpful in making sure we had a friendly face to greet us when we arrived in London. Just outstanding customer service and a truly outstanding location for this flat!! Would return in a heartbeat and absolutely recommend this to others visiting London!!!!
A clean and modern apartment in a very good location
Although I have lived in London, this apartment was not in an area I was familiar with - however over the week we were there I came to realise what a fantastic location it was. Although about ten minutes either way to Holborn or Russell Street tube stations, the walk was not difficult and with an extra 20 minutes or so of easy walking, you could get to Covent Garden, Leicester Square or other tourist hotspots. This was extremely handy when many of the tube stations flooded after heavy rain.
There were numerous choices for takeaway food, pubs, coffee (coffee nook Hopper was in the same street and became our breakfast coffee go-to spot) and a Co-op supermarket just a couple of minutes away.
The apartment was clean, tidy and modern and served our family of five well (second bedroom was a little tight as we chose to put the third teenager onto a folding bed in there rather than on the foldout couch in the living area). The kitchen was tiny but had everything you needed for simple cooking or reheating.
I must mention that I think we were a little unlucky - the day we arrived there had been heavy rain and water had leaked through a ceiling light fitting and onto one of the single beds, which was quite wet.
When we contacted a property manager, she did her utmost to be helpful but it was obviously going to be a bigger problem than could be fixed during our stay. The mattress apparently could not be replaced quickly but I was very unimpressed with the man who came and delivered fresh bedding, flipped the damp mattress over (mattress protector and all) and then left me to remake the bed myself, closely followed by the very grumpy builder who could not seem to understand why he was there and scolded me for not realising that I could take the 'window limiters' out myself so I could open the windows properly
(Grumpy builder: its just a legal requirement! didn't you know that? Me: Why yes Mr Builder, the first thing I normally do any time I check in to a new property is work out how I can violate some building codes)
If not for the wet bed incident I would have had only positives to say about this property - it is a given that in central London you will pay top dollar (or pound) and we were prepared to accept that. I would happily stay here again and would recommend this property to friends and family.
Our family of four had a wonderful time in London and this apartment worked well for us. It is as beautiful as the pictures look. We enjoyed the nearby restaurants. Groceries are also close by. It's a 10 minute walk to the tube and even closer to the bus, which our kids loved.
First out of US VRBO stay
First of all the flat was amazing. I love the towel warmers in the bathrooms. Location is perfect for walking and public transport. We kept heading towards Hilborn for our dining but found a few days before departure a lot more to discover to the right when you leave the building. Cutest coffee company next to the building. If you don't feel like going out order in from Deliveroo. Enjoyed KimChee, Hiba, Wagamama, Scarfes, Wahaca, Spaghetti House, The Queens Head, Thiwayna Thai, Bea's, The Food Shop, Harrods, Fortnum and Mason, Lady Ottoline and Silver Cross. Of course a few more pubs in that mix. Bottle Dog is around the corner if you are a hop head. (Every beer available). Perfect time of the year to see London, spring coming alive in all of the parks and gardens. I would stay in this flat again, I felt at home. Thank you for making this flat available for VRBO.

“Beautiful finish, resorted townhouse feel and one of a kind.”
Activity and Interests
Despite its cultural, historic and scientific bragging rights, Bloomsbury has a well-healed yet understated atmosphere. The former home of literary greats such as Virginia Woolf and Charles Dickens, today it is dominated by the massive British Museum. Bloomsbury is an unspoilt corner of London, feeling more like a village. Bloomsbury is famous for its beautiful Georgian squares, world class universities, colleges and hospitals.
Bloomsbury is an often undervalued and overlooked oasis of calm in central London. The area is within the borough of Camden, one of London’s most diverse and eclectic boroughs. Basing yourself here for a holiday in London, you will be surrounded by action-packed places such as the West End, Soho, Covent Garden and the newly redeveloped King’s Cross area
Russell Square and Bloomsbury, the two large garden squares were set out and developed in the 17th century by the Russell family. Today these are flanked by stunning examples of Victorian architecture and sit either side of the fabulous British Museum, just a 10 minute walk from the apartment. Close to the apartment there are attractions such as the Charles Dickens museum (a 2 minute walk) and The Foundling Museum.
A brief 10 minute walk from the apartment brings you to the Brunswick Centre, a local hub for shopping dining and entertainment. You can find great shops such as French Connection and Joy along side cafes, a Waitrose supermarket and restaurants, including Carluccios, Itsu and giraffe. Entertainment comes in the form of the Curzon Cinema showing art house classics, foreign films and the latest Hollywood blockbusters.
A 20 minute walk or 10 minute bus ride takes you to the heart of one of London’s most famous tourist areas, Covent Garden. Find museums, the Royal Opera House, numerous theatres and the Piazza as well as a myriad of small streets to explore. You can find boutique fashion, high end designers and restaurants from around the world. Covent Garden is also on the edge of London’s theatre district, the West End. See a play, opera or musical with a pre or post theatre meal in the world’s most prominent theatre district.
Designed around Russell Square and the iconic British Museum, Bloomsbury is known for its plethora of world class institutions, such as University College London, The British Medical association and Great Ormond Street Hospital.
The family friendly Bloomsbury holiday apartment is 10 minutes walk from Chancery Lane tube station. Nearby stations also include Russell Square and Farringdon stations. Getting around London is easy with quick access to the Piccadilly and Central Lines. As Euston, Kings Cross and St Pancras International (London’s Eurostar terminus) train stations are based on the northern borders of this district, travelling to the rest of the UK and Europe is easy too!

- Bloomsbury is an area of the London Borough of Camden, in central London, between Euston Road and Holborn, developed by the Russell family in the 17th and 18th centuries into a fashionable residential area. It is notable for its array of garden squares, literary connections (exemplified by the Bloomsbury Group), and numerous cultural, educational and health-care institutions. Bloomsbury was not the first area of London to have acquired a formal square, Bloomsbury Square laid out in 1660 by Thomas Wriothesley, 4th Earl of Southampton, as Southampton Square was the first square to be named as such.
