Light, airy, comfortable 3 bedroom, 3rd floor flat with elevator (step-free access); sleeps up to 6 in 3 double beds. Very well-equipped dining-kitchen with dishwasher and laundry facilities. Comfortable sitting room. TV. Free Wifi. Balcony. Cool, "real" and absolutely SAFE part of town, walkable 24 hours per day; 0.3 miles from major transport hub Kings Cross for local, national & international transport.
Lovely inside, redecorated and fully updated throughout with restored original wood parquet floors. On a quiet and peaceful street, yet just minutes walk from bustling Kings Cross/St Pancras. The post-war 1948 building is very solid but not particularly beautiful from the outside.
Lounge: Bright, sunny, seats 6 with access to the flat's private balcony.
Kitchen: fully equipped with fridge-freezer, washing machine, dishwasher, microwave, coffee maker. Good quality cutlery, crockery and glassware are available for 6 persons, utensils and pots are ample. A folding dining table in the kitchen can seat 4 people easily and six at a slight squash.
Bedroom 1: Large, double bedroom with ample space and storage space. Direct access to the balcony.
Bedroom 2: Good sized, double bedroom with ample storage space
Bedroom 3: This bedroom is very cute and we have uncovered the original parquet flooring but it is *small*. It has a double bed and can easily sleep 2 persons, but there is not much moving around or storage space.
Main bathroom: newly tiled in clean, white tiles and newly re-plumbed with a commodious shower enclosure, sink unit and toilet.
Half bathroom: Also newly renovated - just contains a toilet and wash hand basin.
Outside space: There is a small balcony with a table and 2 chairs and a some plants. There is a private, tree-lined communal garden with seating and a small children's playing area that guests can also access.
Overall: The flat gets lots of natural light and feels spacious. The accommodation would suit a group of friends or a family. The apartment is safe for young children. Whilst six people can absolutely sleep here comfortably (and economically, too - the cost per person with 6 persons is very good value), we most often seem to rent to parties of 3 or 4.
As well as the various amenities listed elsewhere on this site, we provide ample cleaning materials, good quality bed linen and towels. Basic supplies such as shampoo and soap and bathroom tissue are supplied.
Despite being about 5 minutes' walk from a major international terminus, the area is residential and quiet with very little car traffic. There are two gastropubs within a short walk from the apartment that have outside tables and are open until 11pm. In summer there can be some street noise from people enjoying their meals and drinks.
A word about relative size:
Please be aware that this is central London; I'm personally absolutely thrilled to have so much space in such a great location, three bedroom flats so centrally are unusual. But the concept of space is relative. Occasionally, guests used to larger homes in cities with more space have expressed surprise at the size. We have no wish to disappoint any of our travelers, so do think carefully about your travel party's space needs; if you want more space for the same price you will have to look for a place less centrally. If you want more space in the same area, you will have to pay more.
Timing of access:
Guests can generally access the flat from 11am onward (the checkout time for previous guests) at least to collect keys leave bags whilst we clean, but official check in time is 4pm. We will clearly negotiate check in times prior to your travel but as we are private individuals with full time jobs, we can only make last minute changes to arrangements in emergencies, such as travel delays. If you need more flexibility than that, please tell us in advance.
During your stay:
We have prepared a file with suggestions for local shops, restaurants and services that we can personally recommend. We can help with your travel plans, if you need us. If there is any problem with your accommodation, we will sort it out promptly.
If you need to arrive at late hour (after 6pm) we do understand - international travel doesn't always land you where you want to be when you want to be there. But please let us know well in advance - we all work full time and both have families, so we cant always be were you might wish us to be exactly when you prefer it. We will do our very best to accommodate you but if it's a really odd time of the day or night, we may have to pay someone to come and let you in and charge a modest late check-in fee. Advance warning really helps us to help you best.
