About the property

1 bedroom, 1 bathroom, sleeps 3 heart of central London theatre district

A lovely flat located in the Heart Of Central London. The flat is on a very quiet and charming street(no traffic at all)within a two minute walk from the British Museum.Its location is fantastic! The flat will sleep 4 in comfort.There are excellent transport links nearby ,but as one is so close to the major sightseeing attractions,public transport shouldn't be necessary. 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 Bloomsbury. For those wishing to see theatre productions ,Covent Garden is a 7 minute walk away. 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. The flat is in a beautiful period Victorian building. It's situated on a stunning street, that has a wonderful historic feel to it all year round.

Our charming flat will be the perfect home from home in Central London.The area of Bloomsbury is stunning. Our guests will be able to wander the historic nearby Garden Sqaures and even bring a picnic for those long summer nights. The kitchen is fully equipped to allow dining in a pleasure not a chore.There's plenty of dishes,serving plates,pot and pans etc. There's a dining table that will sit up to four guests. We have plenty of wine glasses and that ever necessary corkscrew. There's a toaster,coffee,microwave,oven and hob. There's a fridge and freezer.The flat has gas central heating and one will be able to adjust the amount of heat required in each room. The flat is warm and the winter and cool and breezy during the summer. There's a fanatstic feeling of space in the flat with 12 foot high ceilings throughout ,our guests won't feel cramped at all.

There's a washer/dryer which will come in handy for those travelling with children, or those wanting to take a suitcase full of clean clothes back with them.We also provide a iron and ironing board.There's no need for our guests to clean the flat before departing as the cleaning fee is included in the price. This will allow you that bit of extra time to get some last minute things done.

There's a colour TV with satelite/cable channels./DVD palyer. We also has a very fast internet connection/WI FI throughout the flat.

Nearby you'll find the marvellous Bury Place and is unique range of independent shops. The London Review of Books is on this street and their selection of books is divine. They also have an excellent cafe serving a great selection of teas,coffee,cakes ,salads and sandwiches. The shop often has author nights,so you be in for a treat if one of their events is happening during your stay.

Situated just behind Bury Place is a splendid courtyard called Pied Bull Yard There's a lovely wine bar called Truckies which has a very good selection of wines by the glass.If the sun is shining then one can sit outside and really enjoy the weather and a decent glass of wine in beautiful quiet surroundings. I was over the moon to learn that Le Cordon Bleu has just relocated to Pied Bull Yard. This international top notch cookery school also has a huge cafe serving all sorts of delightful treats!

Our guests will find an huge array of traditional English Pubs nearby. I always suggest having at least one Sunday Roast during a visit to London. The Museum Tavern opposite the British Museum serves a really good roast!

Opposite the flat is the historic Bloomsbury Church. This is a Hawksmoor designed church. It has wonderful concerts (mainly jazz or classical) throughout the month. For a very small entrance charge one can really enjoy the beauty of this place(and hear some relaxing music at the same time)

The British Museum is two minutes from the flat. It can be quite busy ,so an early start is a top tip if you wish to avoid the afternoon crowds.

The National Gallery,National Portrait Gallery and the Royal Academy are all within walking distance to the flat.For those with a talent for the painting, a quick visit to nearby L. Cornelissen on nearby Great Russell Street is a must visit. The shop has been there since 1855 and to this day still sells quality art materials.

Our guests will be able to walk with ease to other parts of Central London such as Holborn, Covent Garden and Fitzrovia. I would even suggest taking a Sunday walk into the City of London via Fleet Street, as at the weekend it's very quiet.

Great location and nice flat!!

  • 5 of 5

We loved our stay at this sweet flat. The location was central and walking distance to many things we wanted to see. The British Museum is a block away while the National Gallery, Westminster Abbey, the West End Theater district are all walkable. The flat itself is comfortable and well equipped! Comfortable bed, nice bath and large bright space! It was a wonderful home base for a week of wonderful adventures!

Good quiet location

  • 4 of 5

This is a reasonably sized, clean apartment with a well appointed kitchen and good size bathroom and bedroom. Just a few blocks to buses or the tube. British Museum close by and plenty of restaurants and small grocery stores. Access to a washer/dryer was a much appreciated extra. Only downside was the seating. Foldout wooden chairs in the kitchen are not comfortable and the sofa is not very comfortable either. Nevertheless we would not hesitate to consider using this property again if we return to London.

Owner's Response: Thank you- I'm pleased you enjoyed your stay. I tend to agree with you about the kitchen chairs and will buy some cushions fro them. I did see that the guests before you had taken off the boards for the sofa(when it was used as a bed)so this may have accounted for it sagging somewhat. I've now put them back on. I do hope you'll stay again on your next visit,

A fabulous location for a very nice villa

  • 5 of 5

We loved the location - walk to bus and tube no problem, British Museum two blocks, shows also nearby, and the unit is absolutely charming. We didn't note that it's a 3rd floor unit without an elevator, so note that if it would be an issue for you; otherwise James and Charlene are delightful, the unit everything we hoped for in a very quiet neighborhood.

Owner's Response: Thank you- I'm so pleased you enjoyed your stay in Bloomsbury.Yes, the area is wonderful and it helps that it's in a conservation area for listed buildings,one of the reasons a lift can't go in.I hope to welcome you back on your next visit to the UK. Best Wishes James

Great location.

  • 3 of 5

The property is nice but too small for 3 people. The sofa bed is very unsteady and difficult to sleep on. The bed is comfortable. I would stay again but only plan on sleeping on the bed, not the rollout.

Owner's Response: Thank you-I'm pleased you enjoyed the flat and its location. I've had the sofa bed adjusted so it's more stable. I hope you found the flat to represent good value for money given its location and I hope to welcome you back on your next trip to London.

Great Location in Bloomsbury

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I stayed eight nights in early November 2017 and thoroughly enjoyed the apartment. Not huge, but perfectly adequate for two people. The apartment was clean and everything was in working order; it was well-furnished and made personal with prints on the walls; and the floor plan provided some privacy/separation in a small space. My only suggestion would be to add some book shelves in the living room (there are two logical places) in order to reduce the size of the coffee table and maybe even add another chair. But those are only suggestions and we would gladly stay here again. The location is superb: close to to the British Museum, shops, Holborm tube station, etc.

Owner's Response: Thank you! I'm delighted to hear your comments about your stay. Yes, I agree about some places for books...either side of the mantle would be ideal...and will book in a carpenter in the New Year.I I'm moving in a wonderful Victorian chair for the reception area.I hope you choose to stay again on your next visit to London.

Fantastic location for walking to theater, restaurants, museums, etc.

  • 4 of 5

Fantastic location in great part of town, with lots of squares with trees. Everything in apartment works. Not too much of a ritzy, touristy area and lots of convenient shops, restaurants, underground and train stations. Should get a toilet seat that fits, and cover the wiring on hallway light, and remove excessive amounts of unnecessary bedding in one of the big closets so it is available for suitcase storage.

Car: not necessary

The flat is located on the border of Covent Garden and Historic Bloomsbury with most London tourist attractions within a few minutes walk.

The nearby shopping on Oxford St 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.
