Overview

About the property

Uniquely Central Fully-equipped 2-Bed/1.5 Bath Self-Catering Flat Sleeps 1 to 4

Welcome to the very heart of London! Overlooking Soho + Covent Garden, this superior accommodation is ideal for singles, couples, families/groups, offers wonderful panoramic views of the capital, and is in walking distance of the main tourist attractions.

Nearby is Leicester Square, Trafalgar Square, Piccadilly Circus, The British Museum, No 10 Downing Street, Big Ben & The Houses of Parliament, Buckingham Palace, St Paul's Cathedral, The Tower of London. Right outside your door are the main London shopping, restaurant and theatre districts plus cinemas, museums, art galleries, nightclubs, parks, 24- hour shops etc, and excellent transport links to anywhere you need to go.

Our great location attracts both holiday-makers and business clients (Deutschebank, Ernst & Young, Pricewaterhouse, Royal Opera House, Chicago The Musical, Borders Books) ... click "MORE DETAILS" for full details + NEWS ...

Unit comprises: kitchen, lounge/diner with balcony, 2 double bedrooms, bathroom+2 toilets (see full layout on floor plan pic).

Where Exactly are you located: Centre Point! many advertisers on this site use the term 'Central London', yet for the unwary they are not! Some of them are at least an hour (some nearer two hours!) train ride into what is truly the centre of London. These apartments are beside the landmark Centre Point Tower at the top of Charing Cross Road.

The Charing Cross stone outside the station is the point where all distances in UK are measured from, so you can say we are not exaggerating about the location.

See the exact location and aerial photograph, or look up postal code WC2H 8LW on GOOGLE maps.

How Noisy Are The Apartments: The apartment is in a semi high-rise which overlooks but is set back from the junctions of Oxford Street + Charing Cross Road, on the small St Giles High Street. All rooms have secondary glazing so noise is not a big issue (secondary is better than double glazing - it is a whole additional sliding panel).

Clients who have viewed the apartment in person (banks, blue-chip companies, theatres always do this for longer stays) are often very surprised at how quiet this unit is for such a great, central location and we would not have had the client list above or the repeat business if this flat were too noisy. one example: for 6 years Deutschebank booked in graduates who need a quiet place to study and work hard on training modules - they would not do so if the unit was in any way unsuitable, or if feedback from the graduates was negative.

N E W S !: London Underground is rebuilding Tottenham Court Road Underground Station to relieve congestion, with a ticket hall nearly 6 times the current size, step free access and improved interchange. A new Crossrail line is being constructed, with services starting in 2017 providing 24 trains an hour. A new plazza is being created outside Centre Point. It will be great when finished, as tube journies from Heathrow will run direct to the apartment in 30 minutes - half the time it takes now! Please be aware that there is therefore construction work going on across the road, however we have had long let rentals in the building renew tenancies for 12 months, so it is not putting off renters. There may be WORKS going on (daytimes only) below the flat as the retail units are being refurbished this year

Please Note: This property is now set up to specialise in LONG-LET RENTALS (ie not nightly / weekly rentals)

Guestbook comments from the owner

A very comfortable big flat within walking distance to all the amenities. Fantastic food locations right out the front door and a quick walk to covent garden. Flat was clean, well stocked kitchen, and comfy beds and linen. Manager was very helpful with directions, check in and honesty about the location. A bunch of construction in the area but flat was super quiet and it was not a big deal. Great find

Great location!

  • 4 of 5

We had a little trouble finding the entrance due to construction in the area but once we figured it out we were good to go. Si was very helpful in that we had a very late check in. Via cell phone, he walked us through accessing the lock box key for entry to the flat. There was a lot of construction in the area but we were made aware of that before booking. The construction was not a problem for us because they usually didn't start until around 8 a.m. and they had stopped by the time we returned in the evening. The flat is located near public transit. Once construction is completed in the area the bus stop and tube are located almost right out the front door. Very convenient!! We were a little disappointed that the toilet in the main bathroom was very "sensitive" to flushing. We had to make use of the cloak room toilet most of the time which was extremely small. My husband is 6'4" so it was very inconvenient for him. Other than that inconvenience, over all the flat was clean and comfortable. We found it very easy to visit the major sights of London from this location. We enjoyed our stay and were glad that we decided to stay here instead of a hotel as we were in London for 8 nights. Local people were very friendly and helpful. We loved our visit to the beautiful city of London!!!

Owner's Response: Super review, thank you. The toilet you mentioned is not too "sensitive", it is just that we put a warning on the wall not to overfill it with toilet paper. We haven't had any problems for years, but in the past it got blocked once or twice. Everybody has used it without a problem since 2010

The unit was as advertised.

  • 3 of 5

The unit was as advertised. Location was very convenient to both walking and public transport.

The unit was well appointed and Simon, the property manager, was very helpful and prompt in responding to issues he could control. The presentation omitted the fact that there was heavy construction underway on the building and on the two buildings next door from 8 am to 6 pm Mon to Fri plus Sat to noon. Double glazing plus heavy drapes did not damped the noise sufficiently to stay there all day. Open windows were completely out of the question. Even on rainy days we left just for a respite from the constant noise. This was a major negative.

Owner's Response: Thanks for confirming the unit is as advertised, well-appointed and that I was helpful and prompt. We do state the construction is ongoing in the immediate area on the property listing, and in our offer emails, and also in our pricing. It is made clear that the price is discounted to take it into account. This is all before you book Unfortunately not everybody pays attention to the detail that I give, even when it is just a few lines. And then it is reconfirmed in my arrival directions which include up to date photos. So we draw attention to it more than once. As other reviews state (so many of them mention the construction, so it is very obvious in our reviews too) but say that it did not unduly bother them,. I can only conclude therefore that your stay must have coincided with some nosier than normal work for a period. And as you point out, that is not in my control (wish it was!)

Fantastic stay

  • 5 of 5

Our family of 4 stayed at this apartment for a week. The apartment wasvperfectly located within walking distance to many tourist sites in London. We absolutely loved the location. The design of the apartment was like a town house, living room/dining room, separate kitchen downstairs,, 2 bedrooms and 2 bathrooms upstairs. The apartment was bright, clean, modern and spacious. We absolutely loved the apartment. Si, the rental manager, and his assistant were very nice. Si replied to my emails promptly and explained everything really well. They met us st the apartment, even carried our bags upstairs and gave us a full tour of the apartment. Master bedroom had king size bed, really comfortable and beautifully furnished. There was construction around the building which we were informed of before we booked the apartment. The construction didn't bother us at all. We loved this apartment and will definitely stay there next time we are in London.

Great Location!

  • 5 of 5

Our stay at this apartment was wonderful. Simon was waiting for us when we arrived, and went through all the details of the rental. The location was perfect – within a few minutes walking distance of all the shops, restaurants, and quaint little streets of Soho. The apartment had tons of space and all the amenities you can think of. The construction going on around the building (which Simon had forewarned us about) turned out to be a total non-event for us – it didn’t bother us in the least. No noise or inconvenience (the apartment is very soundproof). We loved coming “home” and relaxing after a busy day sight-seeing.

The apartment is in a semi high-rise building on a small road called St Giles High Street, opposite the pretty St Giles in the Fields Church. This uniquely places the apartment at the direct meeting point of Soho, Covent Garden, Bloomsbury + Holborn - in an area also known as Centrepoint, the West End + Theatreland.

The rooms overlook the intersection where the top of Charing Cross Road joins New Oxford Street, Tottenham Court Rd + Oxford Street (London's main shopping streets). There are views of East and West London in the distance, so you can get some terrific sunrises and sunsets!

On the doorstep: Supermarkets (Sainsbury, Morrisons, Waitrose, M&S Simply Food, Tesco), Newsagents, Boots Pharmacy, Starbucks, Cafe Nero, Foyles bookshop, Carphone Warehouse, Argos, numerous Restaurants, Bars, Convenience Stores + Cafes.

This is a fantastic location to be based!

Other Activities: 6x pools/gym/fitness centres from 2 to 8 min walk: Central YMCA; Oasis Sports Centre, Soho Gyms; CentrePoint; Canons Health Club; Jubille Hall
