Overview

Photos and Description of this 3 bedroom holiday apartment in Bloomsbury - St Pancras Chambers

A 3 bedroom Gothic fantasy of bricks and spires

Big Ben, Tower Bridge, the Natural History Museum – all are visual icons of London, built by Victorians whose aspirations knew no boundaries - but those are not for rent. With them sits St Pancras Chambers, a gothic fantasy of bricks and spires.

The building, designated as a national historic landmark (Grade 1 listed) incorporates the St Pancras Renaissance Hotel (5 star Marriott), St Pancras Chambers (private apartments such as this) and Kings Cross St Pancras underground and train station below - the most interconnected train hub in London (6 tube lines inc direct access to Heathrow, Gatwick and Luton airports plus direct trains to Edinburgh, Paris and Brussels!)

LOCATION:

On the edge of fashionable Bloomsbury and well connected by underground, it is the perfect hub from which to explore London's sights. Restaurants, pubs and shops can be found in abundance both in the building and adjacent hotel as well as the general vicinity.

The perfect base to explore all that London has to offer.

THE APARTMENT:

This apartment is on the top two floors of St Pancras Chambers. Residents also have access to hotel facilities at additional cost (inc Spa, Pool and Gym)

The apartment is over the 4th and 5th floors of the building. There are two guest double bedrooms on the 4th floor (one ensuite) and third mezzanine room above the living room which is typically used as a third bedroom (it has 2 foldout single sofa beds which can be put side by side for a double). If not needed as a third bedroom, the mezzanine has also in the past been used as a reading room or as a kids play area (we have plenty of board games and puzzles).

We have 2 further foldout mattresses and one travel cot available on request. These can be placed in either bedroom.

The 5th floor area is an open plan Kitchen/Living Room.

CHECK-IN/CHECK-OUT TIMES

Check-in is typically any time after 4pm and Check-out strictly by 10am. I will certainly try to be flexible and it depends very much on how tight the turnaround is between your booking and the ones before and after. If your needs require an early check-in for example, I have often accommodated the needs of the tenants where possible but this must be by prior arrangement so please email me about your needs and I will try my best to accommodate.

BEFORE REQUESTING A BOOKING, PLEASE READ THIS:

Please remember, this is not a business. We are welcoming you into our own home. While we use it ourselves when we are in London, we have started to make it available when we are not! Please treat it as you would your own.

We have had some wonderful people stay here since we started making our apartment available and we would like to keep up that record. When you contact us, please tell us something about yourself, and your plans in London. Empty booking requests will be ignored.

MINIMUM BOOKING REQUIREMENTS:

Please note that our standard booking period is a minimum of three days. However, in shoulder season periods, we do accept 2 night bookings but with a 20% surcharge. Thanks for your understanding.

About Yaz Romahi

I have lived in Canada, Japan, the Emirates, Jordan, Scotland and England so far and spend copious amounts of time in the US.

An applied mathematician and technologist by training.

I have an avid (some would say obsessive) interest in political history, architectural history and especially, financial history. I collect 18th and 19th century bonds and banknotes that have particular socio economic significance. A number of these are on display in the apartment including a French revolutionary banknote, a bond from the building of the Panama Canal, an Ottoman Empire government bond amongst others.

Guestbook comments from the owner

It is a great location from which to see the city, and the building itself is stunning. It is a very safe building, too. We loved the 24/7 coverage at the front desk. The apartment is really comfortable, with a lot more space than I expected. Two large bathrooms and two large bedrooms were a happy surprise! The loft area was nice for sleeping too. The kitchen had everything we needed for the bit of cooking we did, and best of all, it has a FANTASTIC supply of coffee and tea! The family games were fun to play when we were in for the night. Thanks so much for your thoughtful attention to detail, Yaz! We definitely highly recommend this apartment!

Great apartment. Great Location!

  • 5 of 5

What a great place to stay! We spent a long weekend here to celebrate our birthdays and it couldn't have been more perfect. Clean, well maintained and lots of little extras were thought about (Oyster cards provided, breakfast items, bread, milk, tea coffee and a fab fruit bowl.). The owner was very helpful and answered all emails promptly. Fantastic location for getting around London too. We thoroughly enjoyed our trip and would definitely recommend it to others. With any luck we'll return one day!

Wow amazing Apartment in an excellent location!

  • 5 of 5

We went as a group of 10 to London for the weekend to celebrate a 30th Birthday.

The Apartment was in a lovely historic building, very modern with great facilities and in a fab location.

The owner couldn't do enough to make the stay special, he left Oyster cards in the room which was very handy and also bread, milk, tea/coffee and preserves which was a nice little touch.

I would definately recommend and we will be using in the near furture.

Thank you for a very enjoyable stay!

A bit special

  • 5 of 5

It felt a little special to be staying in Gilbert Scott’s iconic St Pancras building - a true London landmark.

The apartment was just what we wanted – comfortable, clean, spacious, well-equipped for any techies and ideally located, being moments from St Pancras underground station on the Northern, Victoria and Circle lines. The owner provided lots of nice touches such as a useful booklet to explain what and where everything was, books and games if the weather was poor (it wasn’t) and even a large bowl of fresh fruit to greet us on arrival. The heating system worked well (not always the case in some places we’ve stayed in) and all the windows are double glazed so noise insulation from the traffic is excellent. There is a profusion of light switches to master but I think we finally got to grips with them!

Communication was excellent – prompt and accommodating. Hard to fault overall and highly recommended.

Excellent stay!

  • 5 of 5

My family stayed at this great rental recently. The building itself is remarkable, and a great location for seeing London, or traveling to and from London, as it is in the St Pancras/Kings Cross train station. Great restaurants in the station and in the area. Our kids really loved staying at the "Harry Potter" station (shown in one of the movies), and the rental itself was comfortable, safe and quite upmarket. Yaz was a great host, and very helpful in meeting our needs. Having traveled to London quite often, I would recommend this rental as one of the best options in London for either families or couples.

Fabulous appartment, fabulous location

  • 5 of 5

Just returned from a fabulous weekend break at this amazing apartment. Started with some great conversations with the owner Yaz to ensure would suit our needs and it definitely lived up to expectations. Beautiful appt right next to Kings Cross so very accessible to tube / bus services - Oyster cards provided to make life easier. Fresh fruit and breakfast welcome pack, was lovely touch along with a book detailing all key facts. Immaculate accommodation - even fans provided in rooms as still so hot this time of year. We were a group of 8 girls celebrating a birthday weekend, we will definitely be back no hesitation. Thank you Yaz

What a great find! (*****)

  • 5 of 5

What a great find! (*****) I stayed with a couple of colleagues as we were attending an industry show in town, and it proved to be very economical and stylish. There are two double rooms which looked fantastic and a mezzanine area above the kitchen diner and lounge where I slept. Very comfortable! There was a comprehensive selection of teas and coffees, a bowl of delicious fruits on the dining table and lovely fresh towels. The location is great, with easy access to the underground trains, shops and bars. In the evening we ate out at a restaurant my brother recommended, called Caravan which was a £5 taxi ride or a 10 minute walk from the apartment located in Granary Square. The concierge service for the apartments was exemplary, we arrived late and left early and there was always someone there. They showed us how to walk to a restaurant using Google maps, and ordered taxis for the return journey. All in all a very pleasurable experience and I would highly recommend this apartment to anyone looking to stay in town, I will be looking to re-book for a family visit.
