About the property

2 bedroom apartment to sleep 4/6 people in Central London.


This 2 bedroom loft apartment is located on the 2nd floor (considered as the 3rd floor in the US and Canada) of a smart renovated building with elevator and a security system in Kings Cross, London. It is a very large apartment- 120 m2 (1300 ft²) and it has a 35 m2 (375 ft²) private terrace with patio furniture and bamboo plants.

The living room features hardwood floors, exposed beams, white walls and minimalist modern furnishings. The seating area of the living room contains two comfortable sofas, coffee table and TV with DVD player. A large window takes up the entire eastern wall and gives access to the balcony. There is also a round glass table in front of the window where you can enjoy breakfast in the morning sun. The dining area can be found on the other side of the open living room. There is a dining table that seats 6 and a fully equipped modern kitchen.

The apartment has two bedrooms. Bedroom 1 has a king size bed. Bedroom 2 has a king size bed or twin beds (your choice). There is also a king size bed in the living room. The modern bathroom contains a shower, WC and washbasin with a large mirror.

This luxury apartment overlooks a quiet street, and the windows are double glazed, to ensure your stay is as relaxing as possible. There is a picturesque canal just two blocks away, with waterside restaurants and a nature reserve. Walking along the canal you can reach Camden Market, Regents Park, London Zoo and many other places of interest.

A Waitrose supermarket is just 3 minutes walk away. Furthermore, there restaurants and shops for every budget in the neighborhood, and Kings Cross Station is just 3 minutes walk away. Not only a must for Harry Potter fans, this station also makes it easy to take a day trip to other UK cities. Kings Cross is also a London Underground station, and gives access to the Circle, Northern, Piccadilly, Hammersmith & City and Metropolitan subway lines.

St. Pancras Station is just 7 minutes walk from the apartment, where the Eurostar will take you to Paris in 2 hours 15 minutes.

Check-in from 2pm, and check-out by 10am unless otherwise agreed.

Guests will be requested to sign a short contract and provide a passport to be copied on arrival.

Smoking is only permitted on the terrace.

Nice place in a great location!

  • 5 of 5

We had a very nice stay over the Thanksgiving holiday. The flat is an easy train ride from Heathrow. Sherry met us and gave us a quick tour of the flat and tips on local shopping. Do ask her to point out the location of the washer and dryer; the flat has lots of doors and it took a while to hunt down the washer behind an inset door with no handle.

The location is ideal for tourists, a perfect alternative to the hustle and bustle of a hotel in Covent Garden or other tourist center. We were able to get all the basics at the nearby supermarket as well as some delicious freshly baked goods. There are also numerous cafes a step or two away, and restaurants just a little farther. The Tube is a 10 minute walk and only a stop or two from all the sites, theaters, museums, dining, and shopping. We also took an Uber once or twice, which arrived in about 2 min and took us to central London in less than 15 min for less than 10 pounds.

The flat is well managed. We had a few glitches which the owner handled promptly. Also, Delta changed our outgoing flight to a later time and he was very gracious in giving us a slightly later checkout time.

The flat was clean and well equipped with most everything we needed. It would have been nice to have a few extra towels, and some extra blankets. The heat worked perfectly, but we enjoy turning the heat down and lounging around with blankets, no big deal but would have been nice.

Our only actual complaint had nothing at all to do with the quality or management of the flat. There happened to be a large and very noisy construction project going on in the building directly next door. They started promptly at 8AM every morning, so forget about sleeping in. Also, we avoided opening the curtains because there were men on the roof with a direct view in. They probably didn't give a care about us, but it's uncomfortable all the same. Of course construction is part of the deal in any major city, but if you're planning a stay here, you might want to see whether the project right next door has completed.

So bottom line, this is a super nice place in an ideal location and you can expect any issue you might have to be dealt with quickly and competently.

Great Property and great location.

Really close to the underground so getting around London is a breeze. Comfortable beds and a nice kitchen, makes it feel like you are coming home. The property is close to some very nice restaurants and grocery stores. Not to mention some very fun pubs!!

Spacious and clean

  • 5 of 5

Our family (2 adults & 1 child) enjoyed our 9 days in London. Paul's flat provided plenty of space. It was wonderful to have laundry and a kitchen. The weather was unusually hot so we appreciated the fan and the large patio. The location worked great for us; near kings cross station as well as a large Waitrose grocery and great restaurants. Sherry was very helpful when we arrived. The only downside was the noisy construction at the new building next door during daytime hours. Hopefully it wIll be finished soon. Overall this is a great unit and I highly recommend it.

Spacious and comfortable

  • 4 of 5

The apartment is conveniently located - close to stations, shops and some tourist sites. It is secure, spacious, well-equipped and comfortable. The owner, Paul, was most helpful and obliging in all our arranging contacts. There were 6 of us - grandparents, parents and 2 young children and we would all gladly stay there again. The only negative - we were fortunate to be staying there during warm summer days. The 2 children found the 2nd {windowless) bedroom to be very hot and stuffy, even though we left the double doors open and the large windows of the open plan area were wide open. (Air-conditioning would have helped!) We heartily recommend the apartment as an ideal base for a stay in London - without a car.

Owner's Response: Thanks for your kind review. And sorry that you found the bedroom too warm. You were in London during a rare heatwave, I can reassure future guests that this is not normally a problem, and there is plenty of ventilation. (And almost no houses in the UK have air conditioning, our country is not generally warm enough!)

Great Place to Stay

  • 5 of 5

This is a residential area near Kings Cross, which was highly suitable for our access needs. The apartment was plenty large enough for our family of 4 and had multiple beds (more than the usual 2 beds we had encountered in other apartment searches). Just make sure to specify if you want 2 twins or one queen/double as beds can be put together or separated at will and bedding differs depending on the needs. Third floor (yes there is an elevator), has a garden terrace for sitting outside, plenty of windows and light, clean and well positioned furnishings. Our stay in mid to late June was cool by our standards (65-72 F) so we found that opening windows was all the air we needed. Loved the fact we could easily prepare meals (has gas burners, double ovens, microwave) which greatly saved on eating out costs. Lodging was clean, well maintained, closely followed description in the listing.

Shopping was easy too-the area is undergoing gentrification and there are two fairly large grocery stores nearby along with numerous take aways, and several nice restaurants. Several historical attractions are within walking distance (British Museum, British Library for instance). The nearby renovation means there are workmen early in the mornings. Our children are teenagers; if kids are very young, this could be a factor in order to avoid disturbing neighbors with crying, running across floor, etc.

Paul and Sherri were very accommodating with our red eye flight and allowed us to drop off luggage prior to official check in time. Sherri went over the various rules and more unusual things with us (like access to the refuse and recycling area in the basement and apartment door access codes). All in all, the base of the good memories we have of our London experience are in large part because of this apartment. The spike in bogus listings in the various websites made me quite nervous about renting thru homeaway.com but I was reassured in large part because of Paul's immediate and obviously genuine responses.
