About the property

Apartment by Trafalgar Square

In the very heart of London! Located in a quiet cul-de-sac 1 minute walk from Trafalgar Square - ideal for visitors who want easy access to the best of London. Major tourist sites such as Big Ben & Parliament, No 10 Downing Street, Buckingham Palace and Covent Garden are all within 5 mins walk. You can see the millennium wheel from the window if you are sitting on the sofa.

As for culture, we are in the middle of the theatre district with musicals, West End, Royal Opera House, National Gallery and the Royal Academy of Arts right on your door step. Excellent for shopping, restaurants and night life - 10 mins from Piccadilly Circus, Leicester Sq, Soho, Regent Street and China Town. The flat is kept in a modern, contemporary style. No lift.

We welcome singles, couples, families and groups for both short and long stays.

A minimum charge of 1-week applies for all stays (even for those of less than 7 nights), but does not apply where we have suitable shorter gaps between bookings (check our Calendar for these). Extended stay discounts for 4 weeks or more.

Trafalgar Square:

Laid out in 1829, Trafalgar Square has recently become car free, creating an attractive open space, with seats and cafes, so it can be used for concerts and entertainment. Looming 172 foot high above the Square is Nelson’s Column, with the famous naval commander standing on its top. Below it, huge bronze lions stand guard and the famous fountains light up the Square at night.

To the east of the Square, the fine old building is the church of St Martin-in-the-Fields, where regular lunchtime concerts and evening recitals of classical music are held. On the north side, the National Gallery holds one of the greatest collections of paintings in the world – and it’s free. Around the corner, the National Portrait Gallery is another of London’s great free attractions.

Charring Cross: which leads off the Square, is the centre of London – literally – it’s the point where all distance to England’s capital are measured to.

Excellent! 4.5/5 -
(17 traveller reviews)


For the price, a great place close to many attractions. But a few issues detract.

  • 4 of 5

First, the communication with the owner was prompt and professional. And within steps of the Embankment Station and close to Leicester Square and the Londoner Eye, the location is great. This--along with how quiet it is at night and providing a washer/dryer--somewhat make up for some issues: inconsistent wifi and a bathroom needing repair (shower nozzle is loose and needs to be held, a handle on window is loose and almost fell to the street below, cracked caulking and undersink). Also, the shower can be tricky to get into, so do not recommend this place for people with mobility issues.

Great Location

  • 4 of 5

Very good price for the location. On a quiet street, but minutes away from the bars, restaurants and two underground metro stations. I was traveling with a friend, so we were really happy to have found this 2 bedrooms apartment with comfortable beds. Nothing fancy, exactly what we were looking for!

wonderful central location

  • 5 of 5

We absolutely loved the location of the flat, right in the center of London, easy walk to Soho/Covent Garden etc, with easy access to tubes and major train lines. Although it is steps away from 2 tube stations, Gordon's Wine Bar and a generally very lively area, the flat is surprisingly very quiet. The flat is fairly basic but clean with a comfortable double bed (we did not use the sofabeds in the living room) and a large-ish eat-in kitchen. The management company, City Holiday Home, was great to work with and very responsive and replied quickly to any questions. The flat was exactly as described by the management company as well as the reviews however the location was even better than we expected. Highly recommended and I look forward to staying here on my next visit to London.

Location, location, location.

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay in Apartment 9. The location is just fantastic. It is so close to Trafalgar Square and The Strand, it makes getting around London so easy. Most of the appliances in the apartment are very new and all in good working order. The bed was probably the most comfortable we have ever slept in on a holiday. We will definitely recommend this apartment to family and friends.

Well located, good place to rest after a long day. The only issue is that the bathroom needs an update, but everything worked fine.

Great location, comfortable flat

  • 4 of 5

We rented this flat for our 3 night stay in London, and found it to be very central to everything; steps away from a cozy "wine alley" and the Thames River, walking distance to London Eye, Big Ben, Buckingham Palace, Covent Garden, Picadilly, and the local bus tours, not to mention the underground tube stations were extremely close. The 2-person elevator and 4-storey walk-up were not a big deal for our family of 4. We didn't use the oven (convection?/microwave), and there was tea provided - it would have been nice to have had coffee as well. While the area is quite busy, the unit itself is remarkably quiet (we did have a couple of nearby alarms that went off early in the morning in adjacent buildings, but there was no other street or people noise). It could use a coat of paint and a little repair here and there, but the unit worked well for us and we would definitely stay again.

From the Owner

Super central but also amazingly quiet even though it is so central.

Activity and Interests

Nearest Airport : Heathrow at 3 Miles Nearest Train : Charring Cross at 100 Metres Car: not necessary

Located in a traditional building supposedly built for Queen Victoria’s officers around the corner from the water gate she used for embarking from the Thames River, this flat is truly right in centre of the most important sights of London. Although minutes away from Trafalgar Square, the flat is in a small street with virtually no traffic, allowing guests to relax and unwind after experiencing the buzz of London.

Two underground stations (Charring Cross and Embankment) nearby give very easy access to The British Museum, St Paul's Cathedral and The Tower of London etc. Excellent transport links to all major airports. 10 min walk from Waterloo.

Other Activities: Shopping, theatre, museums, nightlife, restaurants, sightseeing
