About the property

One Bedroom Apartment, Sleeps 2

Your Covent Garden escape in the heart of London. A beautiful one bedroom apartment is as central as it gets and combines period features with modern fixtures and fast WIFI.

As well as weekends away, we specialise in long-term stays for business travellers. Check my profile for more great apartments!

The Space:

You can't get more central than this! Right in the middle of theatreland, Covent Garden, this one bedroom apartment, with its beautiful open plan lounge and kitchen, draws the line between design and comfort.

Newly renovated and safely located in a secure gated community, the apartment is in the midst of London's best shops, theatres, restaurants, and bars. Whether its the street performers at Covent Garden's Piazza or the latest show at the Royal Opera House - you're in the centre of it all.

In the separate bedroom there is plenty of hanging space for clothes, a bed with a hotel-quality mattress and a hairdryer for you to use.

The bathroom, with its clean white lines, has beautiful tiles and an exceptionally large walk-in waterfall shower - perfect for relaxing after a day's work or exploring the city.

The modern kitchen is fully stocked with all the utensils needed should you want to cook or order a takeaway after work. There is also a washing machine for your use.

Guest Access:

The second floor apartment is yours to make the most of.

* Fast, reliable, and unlimited WIFI.

* All basic household supplies included - tea, coffee, washing up liquid, toilet paper etc.

* Washing machine, hairdryer, iron and ironing board.

Interaction with Guests:

As an experienced host, I will personally be contactable via email or phone during your stay to suggest restaurants, arrange cleanings, or to address any other queries you may have.

Getting Around:

Minutes walk from Holborn (Piccadilly Line and Central Line) and Covent Garden (Piccadilly Line - direct to Heathrow) tube stations. Excellent bus links and London's iconic black cabs on every corner.

The apartment is just 3 stops on the bus or a short taxi ride to St. Pancras International (Eurostar).

The apartment being in the heart of the city, you are surrounded by the best of London. The West End, Soho, Buckingham Palace, Hyde Park, Oxford Street - they're all on your doorstep.

Being this central also means you're also only ever a short tube ride away from the likes of Camden, Shoreditch, Notting Hill, Brixton Market and more.

All linen and towels are provided and housekeeping services can also be arranged.

Great place, great location, great hospitality

  • 5 of 5

We stay in Alex's flat 10 days, we enjoyed the place very much. The location is great, not far from Covent Garden Station and Holborn Station. You can come directly from Heathrow Airport with the Piccadilly line. All the theaters are very close, you can reach them by foot. Restaurants, bars and night life are just around. The flat is very efficient, and cosy.

Finally, Alex was and is a great host, he is flexible, understanding and very helpful. For us, this flat is our home in London

Thanks for everything, you are in our hearts

Great experience in convenient area

  • 5 of 5

Our experience with Alex was wonderful. From the moment we booked he was emailing us very detailed instructions about our stay. The apartment was perfect and very clean.

Alex was extremely responsive and gave us tons of options on restaurants and things to do. I had a small issue with the thermostat, he had someone out the next morning. This area was perfect. Everyday we would just walk miles in a different direction and stumbled upon the cutest areas to eat and site see. I would 100% stay here again. The only thing I would suggest to the owner is to have more stuff in the bathroom stocked like shampoos and conditioners.

  • 5 of 5

Brilliant service from Alex and his team from enquiry stage through the entire time of our stay.

We stayed at 2 of Alex's apartments over a 7 week period - the apartments were both in great locations, extremely clean with a modern uncluttered vibe

Checking in and out was handled brilliantly by Alex - we arrived early at our first apartment with no fuss and late on our second apartment as our flight back to Australia was leaving late.

Will definitely rent with Alex on our next trip.

Lovely bright apartment in a great location. It was easy to get to and in a prime position . It was a cosy but adequate apartment with all the basics. The bathroom was clean and the shower was hot and with good pressure. It was a very secure appartment. It's smack bang between two tube stations which makes it easy to get to a few lines. Alex was easy to contact and assisted me with everything I needed.

I would stay there again.

What an amazing apartment!!!

  • 5 of 5

Everything about Alex's apartment is just right. The size is cozy yet very efficient. The decor is tasteful, clean and modern. All of this pales though in comparison to the location. Just outside your door in any direction you turn, you'll find the most amazing restaurants, shops, and theatres. Located between two tube stations on the Piccadilly line, you can get anywhere in London within minutes.

Alex is an amazing host too! He replies quickly to messages, provided very clear, and easy to understand instructions on getting into the apartment, and is very accommodating, and friendly too. What more can you ask for in a host?

We had an amazing time in London, and will be back. We will definitely stay at Alex's apartments again.
