Overview

About the property

Hidden among the boutique stores of Covent Garden is this beautiful apartment

Hidden among the boutique stores of a cobbled street in Covent Garden is this beautiful and newly refurbished apartment. It is furnished with quality mid-century pieces by British designers and has modern fittings throughout (including a dishwasher, fridge/freezer, induction hob, rainfall shower and washer/dryer). What's more, it's only one minute's walk from Covent Garden station - you can't be better located!

The apartment is a spacious one bedroom with large sash windows throughout that let in plenty of light. The building is newly refurbished so there are brand new appliances and top-quality modern fittings including a dishwasher, washer/dryer and rainfall shower.

The apartment has four rooms and each is tastefully decorated - the furnishings are mostly designed by renowned British-Italian designer Ercol Ercolani. The bedroom has a comfortable double bed with four plump pillows and a hanging rail for your clothes.

The apartment comes with all necessary amenities such as an ironing board, iron, cooking utensils, many pans, knives, fluffy towels, a hairdryer etc. And, of course, there is the essential WIFI connection!

I will personally be available via phone or text to cater to your needs whether that might be recommending a restaurant or giving travel advice.

As for the neighbourhood, the apartment is positioned on a quieter than usual street for Central London, which it shares with several luxury fashion boutiques.

Being next to Covent Garden tube station (Piccadilly Line), the apartment has unparalleled access to the rest of the city, but also is just moments walk from many of London's best attractions.

Awesome location!

  • 5 of 5

The place was very clean and just the right size for my wife and I. The tube station is literally a 3 minute walk away. Will book again for my next London trip.

Fabulous unit for 2. You could not get a better location - right in the cente of Covent Garden and a 2 minute walk from the tube. Easy to find even at night after a long and tiring flight. Alex was BRILLIANT to deal with, very responsive and made everything so easy. The unit is modern and bright with everything you could need. Close to great eating places or buy groceries at M&S which is very close. Do not go past this unit! I will definitely stay here on my next visit.

In so many ways, the perfect London Pied-a-Terre

  • 4 of 5

I would definitely stay here again, and would have given it a full 5 stars if it weren't for the noisy neighbours stying in the flat above me for 2 nights. Being a fan of the Covent Garden location for convenience, I was drawn to this place by the other reviews. I was pleasantly impressed with this accommodation, and Alex, the host, was very communicative and attentive. The kitchen was well-equipped, contemporary and terrific, the living area was bright, and large, and the bedroom was sufficient. The areas that one spends the most time are most important, and they profit from large windows and good lighting.

My niggly criticisms...

- In the beautiful bathroom, there is space for a larger sink, or wall-hung vanity, and I'd encourage this minor retrofit, as I had to leave my toiletry bag in the kitchen (not a huge deal, as it was just 2 steps away).

- A small microwave oven could be useful.

- TV could be a tad larger, though I only had it on to catch some of the Winter Olympics, and was mostly out.

The Covent Garden Tube station is literally 1 minute away on foot! And, for me, that was great, as I could escape the throngs of tourists and run off to other parts of the city in minutes. For food, the Marks & Sparks food hall on Long Acre, and Tesco Market are super-close; another great convenience.

I hesitate to give this too good a review, because then everyone will book it, and it'll be harder for me to find it available next time. I looked at a lot of other places, and have stayed elsewhere before this. I was very happy, despite the small notes above, which I leave as suggestions to Alex, to make it even more exceptional. Highly recommended.

Great value for the money in Covent Garden less than 3 minutes from tube and Marks & Spencer food

  • 5 of 5

I agree with all the positives that others have written about, especially all references to the attention Alex pays to his guests. I only met Alex through email and text but his colleague, Dom, was readily available when we noticed a small leak under bathroom sink on day 1. By the end of day 2, Dom had a plumber fix the small problem while we were out on the town. Very impressed.

We enjoyed the minimalist decor which turned out to be more comfortable than I'd anticipated. Loved the modern clean kitchen and having a nespresso machine with coffee pods supplied was a welcome bonus.

The bed and bedroom might feel narrow or cramped for some with mobility issues or those used to an American Q or K size but it worked for us especially with the small wall-hung side tables that you see in the photos.

We were there for a week and I appreciated the rack for hanging clothes. In fact, I thought it an ingenious use of space. Washer/dryer was a high quality machine that could even handle the generously thick towels provided. Thanks to one reviewer's comments about more shelf space in the bathroom, I took a few over-the-door hooks and hanging toiletries bags that solved that issue. I found that the shower was comfortable designed for holding toiletries and the water pressure more than adequate.

I can't speak for what the apartment would be like in warm weather but in mid-December it was perfectly comfortable especially with the bathroom towel-warmer.

As someone mentioned, the carpeted stairs from the front door to the apartment are steep but have a strong railing so we (69, 70) managed 2 pieces of rolling luggage safely. If you couldn't lift your own bag or have other mobility issues, then daily stair use might be a challenge.

Finally, we felt safe in the area. The stores at ground level are open during the day and an electronic lock at street level gives one quick access to the building.

We left thinking we would definitely stay in this apartment again. And, the next day, I noted that our security deposit had been credited to our card. The whole experience felt like a successful transaction. Bravo Alex and Dom.

Remarkably well located Covent Garden flat

  • 5 of 5

First floor walkup flat right around the corner from Covent Garden Tube stop, and right around the corner from Covent Garden itself. Despite its central location, it is above a relatively small road/lane and, at night, the apartment itself is quiet.

The flat was quite functional, with a full/queen futon style bed, full kitchen (and grocery a short walk away), and living room. Conveniently, electric devices, including hair dryer, iron, and fan, were provided, as was WiFi. Alex was very responsive.

Perfect Apartment in Perfect Location!

Beautiful apartment right behind Convent Garden Station. You can walk everywhere. Loads of pubs, bars and restaurants in the area. We loved the styling of the apartment. It's a spacious apartment with everything you could need. Alex was a great host. Highly recommend staying here.
