HEART OF THEATRELAND 1 BED APARTMENT

Photos and Description of this 1 bedroom holiday apartment in Covent Garden - Covent Garden

1 Bedroom 1 Bathroom Sleeps 4-5

The flat will sleep 4-5 in comfort.The flat is ideal for those travelling with children,teenagers and also suits couples or those travelling alone.

There are excellent transport links nearby ,but as one is so close to the major sightseeing attractions,public transport shouldn't be necessary.The closest tube stop is covent garden on the picadilly line(dark blue on tube map)which is direct to heathrow airport.Nearby leicester sqaure station is direct to the eurostar(northern line on tube map)

There's wide choice of coffee shops,tea rooms, restaurants all within minutes of the flat.The flat is well looked after and our guests should love their stay in covent garden. For those wishing to see theatre productions ,the main west end shows are wihin a few minutes walk of the flat.. There's plenty of shopping on nearby oxford st.The flat should suit those coming to london to see the sights or for those needing a relaxing break. Our guest won't have to struggle with their suitcases up long narrow stairwells as there's a modern day lift and wide corridors.

There plenty of space in the flat to keep luggage out of sight whilst you enjoy your stay.

Of course no mention of covent garden or london in general would be complete without pubs. This seems to be the question we're asked most.We have put together a list of truly great pubs that have retained their historical charm and still offer a good pint or two.The lamb and flag on nearby rose st is one my faves and also my local.It get's rather packed in the evening so a good time to go is on a sunday or just after lunch.It's down a charming little alley and you really have to bend in order to get down it if you're tall.They have 8 beers on tap and also a guest beer selection that changes every month.Fantastic pub.

The closest pub to the flat is the cross keys on endell st. This should win awards for its beautiful flower display outside.It's a really good pub to take photos in as it's covered in old london st signs and british pop memorbollia.They also do a good sunday roast and if you're staying on a sunday ,a sunday roast and newspapers is a relaxing way to spend an afternoon.

The harp on nearby chandos st serves real ale and has one long bar.If you can get a seat all the better but if not one can go outside to enjoy their pint.

The salisbury on the corner of st martin's lane is a huge 1890's pub that should be visited for its decor alone.The roundhouse up the street is also good.

PERFECT APARTMENT FOR CITY TRIP

  • 5 out of 5
Da wir aus Deutschland kommen und eventuell auch deutsche Interessenten für die Wohnung vorhanden sind schreibe ich die Rezension auf deutsch.
Wir wurden sehr lieb und sehr herzlich in der Wohnung von Helen empfangen :-) Danke an Helen! Sie wartete auf uns, bis wir endlich von Heathrow den Weg zur Wohnung gefunden hatten.

Die Wohnung liegt absolut zentral und ist für einen Städtetrip perfekt. Wir waren zu viert (zwei Erwachsene, zwei Kinder) und waren prima untergebracht. Es war alles vorhanden, sogar Bettwäsche sowie Handtücher.

Das Sofa reichte für unsere Kinder zum schlafen aus, wir schliefen im Schlafzimmer. Das Bett war gemütlich und wir konnten gut darin schlafen.
Die Wohnung liegt ca. 10 Fußminuten von Picadilly Circus entfernt und damit völlig zentral. Einigstes Manko: Rund um die Uhr rauscht es in den Wasserleitungen. Da das aber ein ganz monotones, gleichmäßiges Geräusch ist, kann man dennoch gut schlafen.

Läden, Sehenswürdigkeiten, Tube-Stations - alles ist in unmittelbarer Nähe.
Wir werden ganz sicher wiederkommen, weil es uns so gut gefallen hat.

Thank you very much, we had great days in London :-)

PERFECT LOCATION!

  • 4 out of 5
This apartment is in the perfect location. Close to 3 different train stations plus all the hustle and bustle of Covent Garden. Although it can sleep 4, it is a bit of a squeeze as the lounge/dining room is not very big and when you have the beds opened up you aren't left with much room. Perfect for just 2 people though. The other downside were the water pipes. It sounded like someone was having a shower all the time which is frustrating if you are a light sleeper. (this may be the norm though for apartments in older buildings). Overall we were very happy and if you are looking for something convenient and at the right price then this apartment will definitely do the trick.

COVENT GARDEN GEM

  • 5 out of 5
This apartment is completely wonderful. There was plenty of space for the three of us and we even were able to have separate beds. The kitchen and bathroom had everything we needed and the washer/dryer was a nice bonus. There is a bit of noise if you leave the window open during the evening weekend hours but this is London and the sounds of the city are part of the experience. That said, we closed the windows before bed and slept very soundly. Can't thank James and Charlene enough!

LOVELY LONDON FLAT

  • 5 out of 5
My husband and I visit London for 3 or 4 weeks every year and this has been our London "home" for the past three years. The fact that we keep coming back indicates how comfortable we are there. The flat is well furnished and the location, in Covent Garden just minutes from Trafalgar Square, is perfect for our favourite activities - theatre, galleries, pubs and long park walks. After a busy day it is also great to have a wide selection of restaurants, pubs and cafes nearby as well as a Marks and Spencer if we choose to cook for ourselves. We'll definitely keep coming back.

PERFECT FOR OUR SHORT STAY IN LONDON

  • 5 out of 5
The apartment is very well located, near the Tube, shops, restaurants, and all the activity of Covens Gardens. Everything went perfectly. Helen was there waiting patiently for us. The flat was very clean and nicely furnished. It was nice to be able to do some laundry as we were only half-way through our visit to the UK. Even people we met in the elevator during our stay were kind and courteous. The deposit was returned promptly.

I would definitely rent this flat or any other from Charlene and James again.

COVENT GARDEN WAS EXCELLENT!

  • 5 out of 5
My wife and two small children stayed here for just under one week. The location is right in the middle of Covent Garden so was excellent for walking to the main attractions.The British Museum was about 5 minutes away.We enjoyed the list of places to eat at that was provided by the owners and the fish and chip shop Rock and Sole was wonderful.The flat was large enough for the 4 of us and everything worked well.We were met on time.We would stay here again on the next trip to London.

Location

Nearest Barpub
10 Cases and Della Terra are 5 min/great wine
Nearest Restaurant
Rock and Sole for Fish and Chips
Car: not necessary

Food,fashion and film stars. Art,actors and architecture. Poets portraits and publishing. Churchyards and coffee bars. Restaurants and royalty.Great Art Galleries and spectacular theatres..Covent Garden has all of this!

For those coming to London for the first time or for those who want to stay in the Heart of The West End ,Covent Garden is one of the most interesting and exciting places to stay.

Our guests will have a difficult time deciding what to do as there really is so much on the doorstep with this location.Take a stroll down some of the charming cobbled streets and stop along the way for a coffee or tea. I love Mommoth Coffee Shop on Momouth St and the Covent Garden Hotel for the most divine afternnoon tea.The Tea Hop on Neal St sells eveythinng tea,this is a perfect place to pick up some fine English Tea in the local area.

If you're staying abit longer and wish to indulge in some fine British Cheese, than Neal's Yard Cheese Shop is pure heaven. They only sell cheese from the British Isles and are more than happy to give a taste of anything from the shop.Amazing.

The area around Neal's Yard is a quaint courtyard that has numerous little cafes and a new Pizza place called Homeslice, fantastic and always busy.The flat is located opposite one of London's oldest fish and chips shops called Rock and Sole. This is is the best in the West End.It's often said that Covent Garden is only for tourists/that's simply not true. People are drawn to this area because there's such a mix of things to do and see. I live here too and haven't been a London Tourist for over 25 years/but even if I could turn the clock back this would be my first choice to stay.

The Royal Opera House(also home to the Royal Ballet) and the ENO are a short stroll from the flat as are most of the West End shows.Guests may have the chance to see the red carpet at a film premeire or at the Bafta's.

Covent Garden has exploded in recent years with a vast array of new shops and restaurant openings. One will have a choice at eating at anything from Jamie Oliver's easy going eatery to fine dining.

The oldest London Southern Indian curry house is located in Covent Garden and a visit to the Punjab will be one to remember.

Rules on nearby Maiden Lane is traditional English at it's best.We keep a list of restaurants suggestions in the flat.

For grocery shopping there's a large M&S on nearby Long Arce,a huge Sainsbury's about 10 minutes away and several smaller shops that will sell all you need for your stay.

The shopping choices in Covent Garden and nerany Oxford Street are endless.From upmarket designers shops such as Mulbeery and Paul Smith to budget shops such as TK Maxx and Primark,there will be something to suit every taste and budget.

The historic apple market just of the Piazza is a treasure trove of handmade crafts, jewelery,clothes,perfume etc. . If we keep on the scent of perfume,the shop Penhaligans on Wellington St has been established in Covent Garden since 1974 and it's worth a vist even if you don'y buy anything.

Standfords Travel Bookshop on Long Arce stocks all matters travels/anything from glow in the dark globes to the latest travel books and lovely little notebooks/jouranls.

The Sancturary Women's Spa on Floral St is the perfect way to spend a day or evening and just relax.

There's also the Thai Sqaure Spa and Relax in nearby Slingsby Place. All three are very good and en excellent treat for somebody.Seven Dials one of the area's little village that has 7 streets of heritage brands, vintage shops, bars and restautants galore. The latest edition is St Martin's Courtyard with a good mix of really good clothing shops and restaurants.This is where Jamie's Iltalian and Della Terra are located.This Courtyard often has outdoor shows during the spring and summer and a fantastic winter light display.
