Central London Apartment - Covent Garden, Soho and British Museum areas.



Updated: 11-Oct-2016
1 bedroom, King size bed, separate kitchen, sofa bed and free WiFi

A bright, warm, one bedroom apartment on the second floor (with lift) of an attractive modern building in Central London. The nearest attraction is the British Museum, a one minute walk. Soho, Covent Garden, China Town, Russell Square, and Oxford Street are all very close by.

Overlooking a pedestrian side street, it is away from most of the noise of the main street.

The bedroom has a double king size bed and comes with linen. The living room has a sofa-bed, TV/ DVD/ CD/ Radio, and free Wi-Fi broadband. There is a fully equipped kitchen with hob, combination microwave oven, fridge, washing machine, iron, cutlery, crockery, pots & pans. The bathroom has a powerful shower over the bath and towels are included. There is a hair dryer. Strictly non-smoking.

One of the best places in London!!

  • 4 of 5

Our apartment was fantastic, the localization is excellent because you are in the dowtown but at the same time you fell than lives in a residential area. The tube and the Bus, 24, stop very near and the area is a safe place. Full of restaurants, shops and supermarkets.

Inside the apartament has comfortable atmosphere..the bed is perfect good quality!!

Sure you waste good time in this apartment because you will be in the real London!!

Great flat for visiting researchers

  • 5 of 5

Great flat, with a nice kitchen and well functioning laundry machine and dryer. Superb location for many places including the British Library (just a 15-minute walk away). It was reassuring to know that there was someone downstairs at the front desk during weekdays working hours (and possibly on Saturdays?). She was very responsive if I needed anything.

Affordable and Centrally Located

  • 4 of 5

My husband and I stayed at this apartment in Bloomsbury for a week. We expected a pretty basic flat with the relatively cheap price and this is exactly what we got. It was an absolutely terrific location and had everything we needed for the week's vacation. It had a comfortable queen size bed, clean sheets, clean towels, and WIFI access. The building is very secure as well.

One easy improvement that could be made is the apartment could really use a deep clean. The bathroom was dirty as were the floors and the furniture looked weathered and could use a steam clean.

The only other thing to be mindful of in renting this flat is the noise. The flat is in a very central and noisy location. There is street noise all day and all night. If you are a light sleeper like I am, the only saving grace was the fan they had on hand (although a bit dusty and could also really use a cleaning) that helped to cancel out the noise at night.

All in all, we had a great vacation in this flat. Next time I will probably go for somewhere a bit more pricey with a few more amenities but this was a great, affordable choice in a terrific location.

Thank you!

Brilliant stay!!

  • 5 of 5

My husband & I stayed here for a week & cannot say enough about the place! Clean, TV, wi fi, fabulous shower, huge bathroom & bedroom with plenty of closet & drawer space. Oven & range along with microwave, coffee press, kettle & plenty of crockery & cookware for the 2 of us. Caroline the porter was great! We loved her breakfast recommendation! The buses are right outside & it is an easy walk to Covent Garden, Tottenham Court Road & Holborn tubes. Sainsbury's is 5 min walk for groceries. Great secure building. Flat has an Ironing board, iron & hairdryer (and a washing machine but we didn't use that). Simply furnished but more than adequate.

If you want to be pampered & waited on like a tourist go to a hotel..if you want the real feel of living in London..stay at Mike's flat!

Great Place

  • 4 of 5

We can’t say enough about the location of the apartment. The most exciting aspects of the city - the shops, pubs, cafes, restaurants, theaters, concerts, museums, etc. are all either within walking distance or an affordable cab ride away. M&S and Sainsbury's supermarkets are also just a 10-minute walk away on Tottenham Court Rd. The apartment was properly cleaned before our arrival; the bed was comfortable; there were plenty of towels and fresh linens; the Sky TV and wi-fi services worked without any tech gliches; the bathroom had a good shower. The property manager, Mike, responded promptly to our e-mails and phone calls. For example, when we told him that the iron wasn’t working, he got us a new one right away. Caroline, the concierge, was also very friendly and helpful. In addition, we appreciated the security systems of the apartment. From the reviews, we were expecting a fold-down futon in the living room, but there was a two-person sofa instead, so the apartment as it is now furnished is only appropriate for a couple. The only problem with the apartment as mentioned in some reviews is the loud traffic noise from the street. Fortunately, we were there when the weather was cool, so we could close the double windows which are adequately sound proof. I suppose if the weather is hot and the windows are open, you could use ear plugs and the apartment fan to get to sleep. In general, we were very pleased with the place.

Apartment Fantastic...............

  • 5 of 5

Mike's Apartment was very nice. It was a great location and we wish to stay there again. I would say that anyone who wants to be just around the corner from the British Museum and right in central London might enjoy staying here. It's also close to Soho and Covent Gardens. We felt nice and secure there with the security. We could walk to the market and many deli's and coffee shops. Also with 2 metro stations 5-10 minute walk from he apartment it was very easy to get around London. We really enjoyed are stay.

Activity and Interests

Nearest Airport : Heathrow at 20 Kilometres Nearest Train : Tottenham Court Road and Holborn Tube Stations at 300 Metres Car: not necessary

Bloomsbury Street, post code WC1B 3QA. A very Central London position in the West End and close to Covent Garden. The closest underground stations are Tottenham Court Road and Holborn, and being at the junction of Bloomsbury Street and Shaftsbury Avenue you could not stay in a more central position. There are theatres, cafes, restaurants, shops and clubs all within an easy walk. You would be a 1 minute walk from the British Museum and just 5 minutes walk to Oxford Street, Covent Garden, Soho, and China Town.
