Wifi, bedlinen, towels, soap, shampoo, tea, coffee and end of stay cleaning is included in the price. Ideally the flat is for 2 people but a small extra person could sleep on the sofa for an extra cost. Leather Lane buzzes in the week with its street market and is very quiet at weekends. Coffee shops opposite and various facilities and services abound along this interesting old street. Two minutes walk away is Holborn High Street with is great variety of architecture, retail facilities and Hatton garden the mecca for jewellery -a favourite for couples. Leather Lane is proud of its heritage and weekday market (10am to 4pm Mon to Friday only) selling foods, clothes and trinkets.

Wonderful Flat

  • 5 of 5

Wonderful in every way. The flat is exactly as described and photographed: very secure, clean, comfortable, convenient, well-located, and well-equipped (plus an excellent mattress and superb shower). I stayed for six days for work and couldn't have been happier. Angela was a pleasure to deal with. She sent very thorough and clear instructions, and the flat had excellent information as well. The flat is on a charming market street with three coffee shops (one directly across the street) and many restaurants and bars. It's a couple of blocks from the Chancery tube stop and a ten-minute walk from Holborn, so a straight shot in from Heathrow on the Piccadilly Line. Highly recommended. I'm very much looking forward to coming back.

Good and quiet

  • 4 of 5

The flat is just like presented in the site. Clean, bright and quiet. The instructions from the owner were perfect and accurate. The tube station is near, and the same is for a lot of little supermarkets, pubs and places for eating. Perhaps, need a bit more towels, blankets and bed linen (M.me Bowen wasn't in London). We recommend it with no doubts.

Convenient and Comfortable

  • 5 of 5

As the others reviewers have stated, the flat is as advertised and is super convenient and comfortable. The area is quite busy with office workers and street vendors during the day, but it's a quiet refuge at night. From the flat it's easy to get to/from Heathrow and any site or museum via the tube or bus (we typically used Chancery Lane). The bed is a US double but is very comfortable and having a washer/drier is a real plus. The wifi worked flawlessly. The owner was very responsive as well.

Does what it says on the tin!

  • 5 of 5

This apartment is exactly as advertised. It is clean, fully equipped and ideally located for whatever you want to do in London. St. Paul's Cathedral is a 15 minute walk, the West End is 20 minutes and the closest Tube station is 5 minutes. All the stores you would ever need for day-to-day living are close by and one of London's oldest pubs, Ye Olde Mitre, is just one street over. There are more restaurants and places for casual dining than you could visit in a year!

Dealing with Angela Bowen was a joy. Everything was straight-forward and delivered when she said it would be.

My wife and I went to London as part of a group of 60 or so all of whom rented apartments in and around St. Paul's. Having visited several of these other places we are certain that Sweeps was the best for location, quality of accommodation and price.

We will be back as soon as we are able.

Home away from home.

  • 5 of 5

Previous reviews have said it all really, the property is exactly as advertised, we felt very "at home" for four weeks, we loved the pubs, the street market out front and so-easy access to the tube and buses. Very smooth operating with Angela, we had pleasant weather so didn't test the heating. If we get back to London, we won't have to search for accommodation, we KNOW where to stay. Thank you Angela.

Un avis d'habitués!

  • 5 of 5

C'est avec beaucoup de regret que nous avons quitté Sweeps Apartment à l'issue de notre 4ème séjour dans les lieux. Nous ne pouvons que nous répéter: l'appartement est confortable, clair, propre et bien équipé. L'immeuble est très bien entretenu, sûr; il se trouve dans une rue sans circulation automobile, de jour comme de nuit. Tous les services et les commerces nécessaires sont dans un faible rayon. L'immeuble étant situé entre St Paul's et Trafalgar Square, sa position est parfaite pour effectuer les visites dans Londres. Madame Bowen est une gestionnaire efficace et de toute confiance.
