A true pied a terre in the heart of London Theatre

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I spent 7 nights in this fabulous flat. The location is especially good for a theatre goer as excellent restaurants with pre-theatre meal specials and the theatres themselves are all within walking distance. However, excellent underground and bus connections and proximity to the National Gallery, Covent Garden, Trafalgar Square, St. Martin's, and the British Museum make this a great location for anyone (we walked to Westminster). The apartment is well appointed with all needed dishes and pans etc. The two sofa love seats and the bed are very comfortable. The building is very quiet and the washer, dryer and dish washer make vacation a vacation! The owner is extremely cooperative and arranged to let us into the apartment very early on a Sunday morning (so nice to get that post trans-Atlantice nap!). Everything is as promised and expected. I would gladly stay there again (and hope to do so soon!)

The almost perfect apartment for London theatergoers, art lovers and first-time visitors to London

  • 5 of 5

The Hanlons' exceptionally well-equipped, sparkling clean and -- for two people -- extremely comfortable apartment is a ten-minute walk from the West End theaters of Shaftesbury Avenue, Covent Garden (for opera, ballet and dozens of shops catering to tourists), the National and National Portrait Galleries, and less than five minutes to the Leicester Square Underground (Tube) station. Taxis are easy to find just outside the front door, but central London is being choked by traffic, and during rush hours walking will beat almost any form of above-ground locomotion.

The drawback to this location is the crowd noise and (as of the end of June, 2017) construction work starting at 7:30 on scaffolding directly opposite. With all the windows closed, the noise is well muffled, but if you need air for a decent sleep, take good earplugs.

The apartment is very nice. It is clean and well appointed.

  • 4 of 5

We stayed for 8 nights. The apartment is a bit dated but clean and includes all the necessary amenities. It is, however, on a very busy street. That is good and bad. You are in the heart of Leister Square and Covent Garden, literally steps from the tube, great restaurants and theatre. But, if it is warm, which it was when we were there, there is no A/C so you will have to open the windows which means that you will hear the load, drunken voices and singing if many a character all night long. if it is cool enough to keep the windows closed, you will have no problems. The good outweighs the bad with this apartment. You have a Tesco right down the street and all the best of the West End at your door. Also, taxis are thick in the area so you will never be without a cab if you want one.

Fabulous Location

  • 5 of 5

Great 1 bedroom apartment in a fabulous location. You are just steps away from a dozen theaters, loads of pubs, bars, restaurants and shops in Covent Garden. Leischester Square Tube station is just around the corner. We easily walked to Buckingham Palace in 25 minutes, British Museum 10-15, Westminster Abbey/Parliament 15-20, and Trafalgar Square in 5 minutes. I would not want to stay any place else in London. By the way, as everyone has mentioned, with all of the traffic and nightlife outside, you will not hear anything inside. Even the building itself was quiet.

Some places we loved...One Aldwych lobby bar, Gordons Wine Bar, Champagne and Fromage, Rules Restaurant, Balthazar, Dinner by Heston Blumenthal at the Mandarin Oriental, Dishoom, and Ronnie Scotts,

While it would be easy to take public transportation from Heathrow we chose Twelve Transfers for pick up and return. Cost 85 pounds RT. With London traffic, midday it took about 1 hr. Patrick was there waiting upon our arrival. Great host! Thanks much

Second saty here just as good as the first.

  • 5 of 5

I spent another lovely week in this flat (having previously stayed there in August). The location is unbeatable, and the flat is comfortable and well maintained. The owners are lovely people and I highly recommend their properties.

Great apartment, perfect location

  • 5 of 5

Can't say enough good things about the owner (Patrick) and the apartment.

The apartment: Nice amount of space for 1 or 2 people. Comfortable bedroom and sitting room. Well-equipped kitchen. Good bathroom. Easy-to-use washer/dryer. Nice, modern, well-lit building.

The location: Within a block or two from Leicester Square and West End theaters. Easy walk to British Museum, National Gallery and National Portrait Gallery. Across the street from Dishoom (hot Indian restaurant), around the corner from The Ivy, and near other great restaurants and pubs. And of course a Starbucks 1 minute away.

The owner: Patrick and his son were nice and accommodating, and responsive with my 1 issue (loss of internet - fixed with a reboot).

I would stay again in a heartbeat.
