About the property

Apartment by Trafalgar Square

In the very heart of London! Located in a quiet cul-de-sac 1 minute walk from Trafalgar Square - ideal for visitors who want easy access to the best of London. Major tourist sites such as Big Ben & Parliament, No 10 Downing Street, Buckingham Palace and Covent Garden are all within 5 mins walk. You can see the millennium wheel from the window if you are sitting on the sofa.

As for culture, we are in the middle of the theatre district with musicals, West End, Royal Opera House, National Gallery and the Royal Academy of Arts right on your door step. Excellent for shopping, restaurants and night life - 10 mins from Piccadilly Circus, Leicester Sq, Soho, Regent Street and China Town. The flat is kept in a modern, contemporary style. No lift.

We welcome singles, couples, families and groups for both short and long stays.

A minimum charge of 1-week applies for all stays (even for those of less than 7 nights), but does not apply where we have suitable shorter gaps between bookings (check our Calendar for these). Extended stay discounts for 4 weeks or more.

Trafalgar Square:

Laid out in 1829, Trafalgar Square has recently become car free, creating an attractive open space, with seats and cafes, so it can be used for concerts and entertainment. Looming 172 foot high above the Square is Nelson’s Column, with the famous naval commander standing on its top. Below it, huge bronze lions stand guard and the famous fountains light up the Square at night.

To the east of the Square, the fine old building is the church of St Martin-in-the-Fields, where regular lunchtime concerts and evening recitals of classical music are held. On the north side, the National Gallery holds one of the greatest collections of paintings in the world – and it’s free. Around the corner, the National Portrait Gallery is another of London’s great free attractions.

Charring Cross: which leads off the Square, is the centre of London – literally – it’s the point where all distance to England’s capital are measured to.

Location, location, location (and price!)

  • 5 of 5

I just wanted to say how pleased we were with Apartment 11. The accomodations were great for our family of four. We could not have found a more spacious place to stay for twice the price at a hotel. We appreciated the little extras like dishwasher detergent and laundry detergent to start us off.

Considering the amazing location so close to Charing Cross and Embankment stations it was amazing at how quiet and secure the apartment was! We could not have been in a better location, the property was clean, and the owner was responsive to all our questions.

I would definitely recommend this apartment!

Great Location

  • 3 of 5

Harumi's team was very nice and responded quickly to our concerns before and upon our arrival. The apartment was appropriate for our needs if you consider that the purpose of our trip was to know the city and be at the apartment basically only to rest at night. Unfortunately we had a bad experience the first day and night of our stay; the heaters were not working (we had hot water but the rooms were freezing), with the exception of one electric heater. I immediately contacted Harumi and she sent electric heaters the next morning and that fixed the problem. The building is located in front of some other buildings (offices); maybe it was only me but it was uncomfortable not having curtains in the kitchen and bathroom windows (the bathroom's windows have some designs and maybe they block the view); just in case I never turned the lights on when I used the bathroom. Location was perfect! and I mean it when I say Perfect :) we walked or took the bus and subway everywhere. Great restaurants nearby and all the environment made us feel safe.

Conclusion: Harumi's attention was great, location was great, and the condition of the apartment is related to its age and that can be expected. It was wonderful that Harumi took action and did her best to help us.

Amazing location!

  • 5 of 5

Brilliant stay! Perfectly central location. Just minutes from Covent Garden, Leicester Square. Felt very safe and comfortable. The apartment was well furnished and our key holder was polite and helpful. For the price we paid you couldn't ask for more.

Like Mary Poppins practically perfect in every way

  • 5 of 5

Perfect location: we could walk everywhere; only 1 tube- and 2 bus-rides in a week, when we managed to see everything! Right next door to WestEnd, so perfect for dining out and theatre.

Quiet street: it's a cul-de-sac, so no road traffic, no shopping hustle and bustle.

Perfectly fitted: it has everything you need. No shortage of cutlery, cleaning products, towels...

Clean and light.

Only one thing to improve: the lock on the flat door was the original one and it looked somewhat simple. I would have appreciated a stronger, more modern one. Appart from that, to ve highly recommended.

Great stay!

The location was perfect -- close to everything, yet quiet! The apartment was cozy but comfortably fit my parents, my partner and myself.

Perfectly situated

  • 5 of 5

Right in the heart of London, this flat was perfect for our foursome (mom with two teens, 73-year-old grandpa) with one double bed in a separate bedroom with door, a pullout couch in the living room, and a convertible twin bed/chair. Nearby shops and a well-appointed kitchen with electric kettle made it convenient to have breakfast, coffee, or tea before setting out (Americans please note that you must flip the switch on the electrical socket to allow electricity to flow--the default is "off"). Despite its proximity to the hustle and bustle of Trafalgar Square, Covent Garden and the popular Gordon's Wine Bar, this flat was very quiet at night (located on a dead-end street that backs up to Victoria Park). The flat was immaculate and had sufficient and good-quality linens and towels. Good water pressure and hot water. The lift was temperamental, but worked 90% of the time for us. There is a shelf of London tour books and maps which were helpful references during our stay. A five minute walk to Embankment or Charing Cross tube (which also connects to National Rail). Don't miss an enjoyable meal with excellent service at the White Swan pub just around the corner from Tesco's.

All communications were efficiently responded to and there were no surprises. We arrived early and were allowed to leave our luggage while they cleaned the flat for us and we went out to explore. We will definitely be back.

Nearest Airport

Charring Cross
Car: not necessary

Located in a traditional building supposedly built for Queen Victoria’s officers around the corner from the water gate she used for embarking from the Thames River, this flat is truly right in centre of the most important sights of London. Although minutes away from Trafalgar Square, the flat is in a small street with virtually no traffic, allowing guests to relax and unwind after experiencing the buzz of London.

Two underground stations (Charring Cross and Embankment) nearby give very easy access to The British Museum, St Paul's Cathedral and The Tower of London etc. Excellent transport links to all major airports. 10 min walk from Waterloo.

Other Activities: Shopping, theatre, museums, nightlife, restaurants, sightseeing
