Amazing location

  • 5 of 5

What an amazing location, we watched the London bike race, which went straight past the balcony! The apartment is very comfortable and well appointed. The view is probably the best view in London and everything is on the doorstep.

Great location for a London trip!

  • 5 of 5

My children and I rented this apartment for our sightseeing trip to London. James was very helpful with directions to the place and made our arrival very easy.

First, the apartment, it was comfortable and had everything we needed. The air conditioning was appreciated as London was quite warm during our stay. There was even a nespresso coffee maker and milk in the fridge!

For sleeping, you are definitely right downtown, so you need to expect some noise. However, with the windows closed (and air conditioning on) it was more than quiet enough for sleep. Also, there are good curtains which allow you to block out the light - very important near the end of June.

Second, the location. We chose this apartment because it was close to everything. You are in the heart of Trafalgar Square and can walk to many of the big sights. We were minutes from the London Eye, Big Ben, Westminster Abbey. The apartment is also close to a metro stop which makes it easy to reach other locations.

We loved our stay and would rent here again without hesitation.

This place is exactly as shown. Middle of everything and great flat.

  • 5 of 5

We loved it. Right across the street from Trafalgar Square. It is not quiet, but that’s the only sacrifice for being in the middle of all the action. Easy walk to everything.

Even better than expected

  • 5 of 5

This flat is amazing. It's like living right in Trafalgar Square. You can see the quiet of midnight on the Square and contrast it to the chaos of mid-day and festivals. You feel like an insider waking up to see the square even before the fountains come on in the morning. The French doors open to create an indoor/outdoor feel. We ate two meals at the restaurant directly below (Admiralty) and enjoyed it very much. Incredible experience all around!!

The flat was very comfortable for our party of 3 adults and 2 children.

There are two things to know ahead of time. Pack light. The owner leaves his things in the flat so there was 1/2 of 1 closet available and just one small nightstand drawer in the master bedroom semi-available - had the hair dryer in it. The bed in the master is small, probably a standard double bed. These were minor inconveniences and we had a wonderful time. James was great to work with and very responsive to any questions. Big Thanks to James!!!

Excellent space and location.

  • 4 of 5

This flat was spacious and was filled with natural light. The view from the balcony can't be beat. We witnessed many interesting people, cars and a perfect view of the fly-over during the "Trooping of the Colors" ceremony. The only thing I would ask is that the owner consider providing more storage in the master bedroom. The closet is filled with his things and there is no dresser. Other than that we really enjoyed our stay on the edge of Trafalgar Square!

Location

Car: not necessary

This is an outstanding flat with one of the best locations in London.Situated in the Heart Of the West End, several of London's main attractions are within a very short walk.Its location is literally opposite Trafalgar Sqaure! Our guests will wake to a view of Nelson's Column. The National Gallery and National Portrait Gallery are literally opposite the flat. The main London Theaters are within a few minutes walk.The flat is simply stunning with high ceilings thoughout.The flat is graced with floor to ceiling windows with French Doors opening onto a balcony with uninterrupted views across Trafalgar Square towards the National Gallery.The flat is suitable for families with children who really wish to experience London at its best.It's also suitable for couples that are celebrating something special. We regret that we're unable to accommodate large groups wishing to use the flat as a place to party.The place can sleep 5-6 but priority will be given to those travelling with children or people working in the Arts in Central London.

Our guests will find two very large bedrooms and an inviting reception /dining area. The kitchen is fully equipped to make eating in a total pleasure. The table is large enough to allow additional dinner guests(up to 8)We provide all the necessary essentials to produce an outstanding meal at your home from home.However, the flat is so close to the some of the best West End restaurants that some guests will be tempted to eat out most nights. We provide 2014 guides of AA Restauatnts UK Edition, Michelin 2013 London,Zagat,Time Out etc.

For those wishing to have the ultimate break, you'll find some of London's best day spas within a few streets away.This includes one of London's best Woman's Only Spa ,The Santuarary in nearby Covent Garden.

Tate Britain is within a 10 ten minute walk and the Royal Academy is a 10 minute walk away.

The flat is situated close to several transport routes.The closest is either Charing Cross or Leicester Sqaure,both being about a three minute walk.Our guests will also find themselves on several bus routes that will take them to the V&A ,Natural History Museum and Kensington Gardens.We advise our guest to purchase Oysters cards upon arriving in London.Should you wish us to do this for you,please just ask!

The flat has air conditioning for the the somewhat hotter summer months.There's central air for the winter months. The windows are double glazed allowing for quiet whilst indoors.Our guests will hardly hear the sound of London from inside.

There's a very fast WI FI connection and cable/satelite television.

The nearby shopping on Oxford St and Charing Cross Road will be a real treat for people who love to shop until they drop. From high end shops to the two very large budget Primarks,one will find something to take back home with them. After a morning strolling aroud the West End a special treat of a full English Afternnoon Tea will sure to become a special memory of your time in London. Yes, it can be somewhat expensive but it should be something that should be tried if you have the time and budget. The Ritz is by far the best in London.The Savoy, The Dorchester,Browns, and Clariddge's are all expensive but worth it.The National Portrait Gallery,The Wallace Collection and the Langham are more affordable and equally as good. Fortnum and Mason on nearby Picacadilly is also worth it. Their food hall is amazing/and even if you don't have time for the full Afternoon Tea you could buy some tea to take back with you. The tin cans ar simply stunning in design.A great gift for those back home.You will find that a few of the hotels near the British Museum also offer Afternoon Tea/but the ones listed above are far better.One exception is Bea's of Bloomsbury which is well worth a visit.

Escape the pressure of everyday life as you loosen up within one of London’s finest spas, Spa illuminata. It has been said to give out one of the best massages that you could possibly imagine. Apart from that, it does not give an all female vibe, as it has been a place for the secret male spa-goer. One of the best treatments that it offers is the Decleor Harmonie facial, with scalp, hand and head massage. Spa Illuminata is located in Mayfair.This is about 10 minutes from the flat..

Berkeley Spa would surely help you unwind from the stress of the city as it lets you unwind with certain therapies such as facials and calming massages. Clients swear the results such as soft and rejuvenated skin afterwards a treatment. The Berkeley Spa is located near Hyde Park.15 min from the flat.

If you're coming to London with some of your closest girlfriends then a vist to the women's only Sanctuary in nearby Covent Garden is a great day to spend a full day or early evening.This is 7 minutes from the flat.
