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.

We stayed 7 days in this apartment and the person who gives us the key was very helpfull and pleasant. The place was clean and we had all the needed equipment. The location is just perfect and near many important places we didn't be able to take the bus or the tube. We had a lovely time! children were very happy.Just one thing we hadn't internet i don't know why , it doesn't matter we found another way.If we will come back in London for sure we will try to stay in the same apartement

We highly recommend you this place.

Fantastic location! Close to everything you could imagine. We walked everywhere and it was so convenient. Right by Covent garden and 50m from restaurants and shops. The apartment was very modern,clean and perfect for the 4 of us. Loved the shower and the internet access. We felt like we lived in London. We followed her great suggestions based on our interests and had a wonderful time in London... highly recommend staying here. Thank you so much for our fabulous stay. The appartment was exactly what we hoped for. It couldn't have been more "in the middle of everything".

I rented the flat for a month as I was in London for work. The flat is advertised as being a studio but you can to section off the bedroom area with glass sliding doors which was convenient when I had friends come to stay as there was a double sofa bed in the livign area. It is perfectly situated for walking to many areas such as the British Museum, Soho, Covent Garden and Chinatown. It is also very convenient for public transport (make sure you pick up the Oyster card and map which contains bus routes - invaluable for getting around on the buses, which are often easier and more direct than the tube). The convenience of the location made it practical for me to come home midday. The flat had all the basic amenities and , in addition, there is a washer/dryer, wi-fi, and a hair dryer. It was surprisingly quiet for the central location as it has double windows. There are several excellent restaurants and pubs right in the area as well as convenient take out options and grocery stores (both 24 hour convenience and regular). The owner was very helpful and responsive to all of my inquiries and easy to deal with. I would recommend this flat and location without reservation.

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
