Overview

About the property

Offered by US based London Connection. 2 bedroom 1 bath apartment.

LOCATION! LOCATION! LOCATION! The perfect formula for a successful vacation in London is a comfortable flat in the best location. This flat in London's exciting theater district is PERFECT. From the flat, you can walk down Shaftesbury Avenue to Piccadilly Circus, past all the theaters and London's nightlife. A visitor can be to Leicester Square in five minutes, to the National Gallery in five minutes, to the National Portrait Gallery in five minutes, to St Martin's in five minutes, to Covent Garden in five minutes; 5 minutes is perfect. Buckingham Palace is 12 minutes from the flat, and the House of Parliament and Westminster Abbey are 15 minutes walk. The Leicester Square Tube Station is nearby, and there are taxis lined up as far as the eye can see. For me, a flat has to be within walking distance of major monuments because I prefer to walk to enjoy every aspect of London life. The flat is on the 4th floor with a LIFT with wonderful views over central London--really, it couldn't be better. The flat has TWO BEDROOMS with a UK KING double size beds in both. Hardwood floors throughout. In the KITCHEN there is plenty of cupboard space filled with dishes, glasses, and silverware. The BATHROOM has a tub and a shower over the tub, wash hand basin, and loo. The LIVING ROOM has an open plan with lounge on one end and kitchen on the other--perfect for family life while visiting London. Wonderful to include a washing machine/dryer, dishwasher, cooker, microwave, fridge/freezer, and cooking supplies. There is British television and Internet. If you want to visit London and stay "in the midst of things," this is the right place. The flat is bright and cheery and above all, it is WELCOMING. Nice property. I would be very happy here, I assure you.

5 night minimum for most reservations. 3 nights considered within 30 days of arrival.

Discounted monthly prices available.

Great property, great location

  • 5 of 5

Superb unit with great management made everything easy. The tube stop is a stone's throw away but one can walk just about anywhere. I Couldn't imagine a better place to have as a base to visit London. The only downside to such a central location was some street noise at night but some earplugs did the trick. Would definitely book again.

Fab location for theatre , eating out but price is noise!

  • 4 of 5

Situated on the 4th floor means a great view of the theatre currently showing Harry Potter -it is literally on Cambridge circus - minutes from Leicester Square, soho, 7 dials , trafalgar square, Westminster etc

Well appointed and a good size for our party of 4. Having the option as one bedroom set up as a twin would have suited us better as were were a family not two couples.

There were 95 steps up to the flat and as the lift was out of order for 4 days out of our 5 this had an impact! Wheelchairs would not fit in the lift but our cases did.

The bathroom has an over the bath shower which again wouldn’t suit a disabled visitor - and the combi boiler meant we never had proper hot water but it was fine ( warm enough)The bathroom was a little tired in its decor.

Lounge / kitchen was perfect and the flat was as warm as you wanted. Also plenty of bin bags/ dishwasher tabs/ ice etc were provided. The main bedroom had a hairdryer and a hair styler but I didn’t see one in the second bedroom.

The property is probably in a listed building so there is only secondary glazing - with poor sound proofing -this caused a big issue at night - party goers and sirens could be heard all night every night and our sleep inthe master bed room was very disturbed. The back bedroom was fine.

I also suspect this flat is very hot in summer ( fans provided) but that is unavoidable.

The company were great to deal with and a friendly meet and greet man was waiting on time for us in the property.

In summary - smooth booking, super location especially if you are planning to party all night!

Great location, close to subway

  • 4 of 5

Spacious, clean and very close to Leicester square and Covent Gardens. Bit noisy as you're able to hear the traffic and some loud speaking people, otherwise very good.

Clean, great service, amazing location

  • 5 of 5

My family and I absolutely loved staying here. The place was clean and very comfortable. The service both from the driver who picked us up at LHR and the gentleman who let us into and showed us around the flat was outstanding. However, the best thing about this flat was the location. It is a very short walking distance Leicester Square and Tottenham Court tube stations. Plus you can easily walk to Covent Garden, or Piccadilly, or even the British Museum in ten minutes or less. There is a plethora of restaurants in SoHo and Chinatown. It was perfect.

There were dishes and silverware, both of which were clean. There was a laundry machine and a dishwasher, which were easy to use. If I had to pick one negative, it is that the flat can be a bit noisy. But, even with the noise, I would no doubt stay here again.

Clean, convenient, and comfortable

  • 5 of 5

If you love the West End theater, the Trafalgar museums, and the Covent Garden area shopping and dining , the location of this flat can’t be beat. We saved time and money on the underground by being able to walk to 90% of our destinations. And it was so comfortable to come back to this super clean, poshly furnished flat at the end of long days, before doing it all again. Loved the large shower/bath space and the good quality beds and sheets. All appliances were as advertised and in working condition. The energy of the theater crowd was exciting, but glad to have brought earplugs and a sleeping sound app for the one bedroom, even though it’s got triple panel windows to reduce the noise. Looking forward to returning here for our next theaterland trip.
