About the property

Offered by US based London Connection. 3 Bedrooms, 2 Baths.

This is exciting, believe me! To stay in a 3-bedroom accommodation in the heart of Haymarket for a visit to London has to be fabulous. Her Majesty’s theater is just down the street. Theatre Royal is just a few doors down from this flat. One evening, you can see PHANTOM OF THE OPERA and the next evening you must see Ralph Fiennes in the TEMPEST–all just out your door. Wander to your corner and turned left, and you will be right in the heart of Piccadilly Circus; turn right and you are in Leicester Square. For theater people, you are right in the midst of it all–and I mean all. THIS IS THE REAL LONDON where you can walk everywhere, avoiding taxi costs and long tube rides. Exciting stuff. The accommodation itself is on the first floor, one flight of stairs, over a very historic shop. There are three double bedroom, all with queen size beds, built in cupboards, and lots of light. The master bedroom is to the back of the building and has an en suite bathroom–perfect! The other 2 double bedrooms share the second bahroom which has shower, tub, wash hand basin, and loo. The kitchen is fantastic with all machines including washer/dryer, fridge/freezer, dishwasher, microwave, toaster–everything. There is a great deal of work space. The lounge has been redone. It is a large space, lots of light, comfortable furniture, and interesting wall photos of London. It is colorful and very comfortable. Even though you are in the heart of London, you will not realize this when inside the property because all the windows have double glazing. Wow! This is a fabulous opportunity. Open the door, and there is London, ready for a visit. When considering the budget, size, and incredible location, this is an outstanding option.

5 night minimum for most reservations. 3 nights considered within 30 days of arrival.

Discounted monthly prices available.

Large flat in an amazing location.

  • 5 of 5

Fantastically located flat in Piccadilly Circus, central to so many popular London shops and restaurants! Best of all, this flat is just steps away from one of the Hop On Hop Off Bus Tours! It was perfect and so convenient for us on our sightseeing tour! The location of our flat felt very safe and our welcome host, Cristina was so nice! She got us settled into our flat and answered all of our questions. She was also very helpful with our luggage! Highly recommend this place if you are visiting London!

Spacious and Centrally Located

  • 5 of 5

One of the best VRBO experiences I’ve had so far! Check in went very smooth, no one was checking out the day we arrived so we were allowed to check in right when we arrived in London. Lots of tips were given and all questions were able to be answered; as tourists in a new city that was very helpful. I chose this apartment based on his size and location. That was a great decision as we were very close to the Tube, Bus stops, Theater District, grocery stores, and a large array of restaurants. The apartment was very spacious and comfortably fit my family of 6 adults. It had everything we needed for a week stay including full kitchen so we were able to make/keep some snacks and light meals.

I knew going into the stay that it might be loud at night since we chose one of the most popular areas of town (Times Square of London as they say). During the weekdays it was not loud at all, on the weekends it was only loud in the room by the street, the other two rooms were very quiet. Didn’t experience any of the other noise complaints by another reviewer.

All in all I would recommend this apartment to anyone and would definitely choose it again if I return to London.

Aside from the washer breaking it was a great experience. Could not be more central or accommodating. Great four our family of five. Would recommend to anyone.

Great location!

  • 5 of 5

This flat was located in the very center of London, a perfect location for visiting the many sites. We also enjoyed walking to Soho, Covent Garden, etc. Extremely helpful and accommodating owners. Perfect for theatre lovers and anyone who wants to be in the heart of the action. The Tube is only a half block away.
