Overview

About the property

Studio, 1 Bedroom + Convertible bed(s), 1 Bath (Sleeps 3)

A large Studio apartment in a stylish 1930’s portered mansion block, with a separate kitchen and bathroom with bathtub/shower. Sleeps 1-3. The bathroom has a separate dressing area with sink to allow more room for our guests.

Located in Bloomsbury, Central London, close to Kings Cross and Russell Square underground stations. It's just a 10 minute walk to the Eurostar terminal and Euston station.It's a five minute walk from Russell Sq tube station.

The studio allows easy access to the West End shows, Soho nightlife, Oxford Street shopping, and the bar/restaurants in Holborn and Russell Square are also within easy reach. Visit the British Library at Kings Cross and the British Museum in Holborn.

Also close by is the Arthouse Renoir Cinema...showing the best in recently released independent films and classics. The Charles Dickens Museum is short stroll away.

With large leaded windows overlooking a park and gardens, the studio has an abundance of natural light. Facilities include a pull down double Murphy bed (very easy to use) an additional sofa-chair bed (very comfortable)and a full height single air bed.There's wireless internet(very fast connection), cable TV, DVD, music system, and a fully equipped kitchen. All towels and linen provided. A perfect flat for a retreat visit to London or for those wishing to explore London.There is a lovely independent coffee shop across the road where one can relax and read a paper and take in life in Bloomsbury. A stroll down nearby Lambs Conduit St almost feels as though you're going back in time. Nip in for a quick pint at the Lamb Pub (one of the few pubs in London to have 'Snob Screens', linger in the independent shops along this charming street and pop in for a glass of wine at Vats Wine Bar .This area still has several independent books shops ,all of which are within a five minute walk.

Your stay here wouldn't be complete without a stroll down Woburn Walk ,a stunning Georgian period Street with attractive bow fronted shopfronts and also once the home of poet WB Yeats.

A selection of reference books about the local area and London are available for use during your stay.Please feel free to take them out and about with you!

For guests wishing to cook at home we have pots and pans and plenty of dishes.The flat is minutes away from the Waitrose supermarket which has very high quality food products.There's also a handy 24 hour shop just opposite the building which is ideal if you need something very early in the morning or late at night.

Bloomsbury has some excellent curry houses...one of which is just around the block...a must visit!

For those traveling with children a trip to nearby Corum's Field will be sure to delight them.There are plenty of farm animals and there are often family activities throughout the summer holidays.Another attraction of the area are the secret public gardens of Bloomsbury. I seem to locate one on each visit. St George's Gardens on the corner of Handel St is wonderful.This is an ideal place for a picnic as it never seems to be too crowded and the when the sun is out it really is lovely.This is 4 minutes from the flat.

There are numerous Art Galleries in the area and the Horse Hospital just behind Russell Sq tube station is well worth a visit.It's locate on a cobbled mews street and used to be a hospital for horses....they kept the name and it's now a very good modern art gallery and event place. They have some great book launches here.

This holiday home will provide all you need for a lovely break in London.

PLEASE NOTE-WE DO OUR BEST TO KEEP OUR CALENDAR UP TO DATE.WE ALSO HAVE OTHER FLATS THAT COULD BE AVAILABLE.PLEASE CONTACT US FOR MORE DETAILS.

About James and Charlene

James is born and bred in London, so knows the city very well! I've lived in London for over 20 years. I grew up in Canada and now call London 'Home'. I work part time in an Arts Reference Library and co own a music shop with James for the past 16 years.

James and Charlene purchased this studio in 2007

Why James and Charlene chose Camden & Covent Garden

We really fell for Bloomsbury.You can really feel the history here.The area is safe and it's so close to Eurostar...that we know that Paris is only a few hours away by train!

What makes this studio unique

The lovely porter is very helpful.

Great place in a great location

  • 5 of 5

This is a gem of a place to stay. Ample space in the living room/bedroom, kitchen with all necessary appliances and a nice bathroom, with very warm water. It overlooks an attractive park and is close to a vibrant hub of shops, restaurants and even a cinema.

I was down in London for a few days for a gig and needed a place to relax before and after. Charlene was very friendly and easy to deal with. There is a porter on duty too who was adds to the sense of security.

I enjoyed the nearby Brunswick Centre, there's a Yo Sushi, which fulfilled my need for fish, and a terrific cinema, one that shows documentary films.

Central location was great!

  • 4 of 5

We enjoyed our stay at Clare court! The flat's location was perfect for getting to all of London's sightseeing attractions. Dated building but comfortable, and at an affordable price. Clare court is a repeat for future visits.

Great location

  • 4 of 5

The location of the flat was great. Close to the underground and Eurostar train station. The building felt secure even has a security person at the front desk. Close to grocery stores and restaurants. The owners were helpful and replied to emails promptly. We didn't give a full 5 star review because like other reviewers have mentioned some updating is needed mainly in the bathroom where there is water damage and mildew.

Great place to stay

  • 4 of 5

This is a great (budget) place to stay. Apartment is basically as pictured, building is lovely and well cared for, location is unbeatable, and James and Charlene are friendly and could not be more helpful. As others have mentioned, there are some small repairs that could easily be done and would improve the apartment no end (taped-over broken window, walls that could do with a clean, some mould in the bathroom, that kind of thing). And I found the mattress on the bed to be a little on the soft/old side. But the apartment was clean and had everything I needed, is light and bright, and I would stay again without hesitation.

Owner's Response: Thank you- You were a wonderful guest to have stay at the flat. Thank you for leaving it in such a tidy state.I'm pleased you enjoyed Bloomsbury and found the flat to be good value.I agree that there's a tiny bit of marks in the bathroom...really caused by wear and tear and have asked our handyman to fix this...same for the small area of the window in the kitchen.I hope to welcome you back on your next visit to the UK. Best Wishes, Charlene

terrific location, pleasant space

  • 5 of 5

This is a pretty studio in a lovely building. Thoughtful touches like international adapters, spare laundry pods, and extra towels. Waitrose, Robert Dyas, and Superdrug across the street make for perfect convenience. My only suggestion would be to acquire lamps: there's not enough light for nighttime or cloudy-weather reading at the table or in bed. (might also be handy to leave a diagram on which cooktop knob activates which burner, and which way is lower / higher heat, since markings have worn off.) The building has a friendly feel - the residents and porters greet one another. Beautiful quiet streets nearby for walking or running; 10-15 minute walk to Russell Sq or Kings Cross. I look forward to staying here in the future.

Situated in the Heart of Historic Bloomsbury ,our flat has a wonderful quiet location. It's close to several historic attractions and is a short walk to the Eurostar Terminal with its direct trains to Lille,Paris and Brussels.

WALK TO:

Regent Park: 15 min

Marylebone High St: 20 min

British Museum: 10 min

Covent Garden: 15 min

Oxford Street: 15 min

Russell Square: 5 min

Leicester Square: 15 min

Trafalgar Square: 25 min

TUBE STATION:

Russell Square: (5 min) -Piccadilly Line - Blue

BUS ROUTES:

Route 91 : King's Cross, Euston Station, The Strand, Charing Cross, Trafalgar Sq

Route 168 : Hampstead Heath, Chalk Farm, Camden Town

The nearby shopping on Oxford St and Charing Cross Road will be a real treat for people who love to shop until they drop. From high end shops to the two very large budget Primarks,one will find something to take back home with them. After a morning strolling aroud the West End a special treat of a full English Afternnoon Tea will sure to become a special memory of your time in London. Yes, it can be somewhat expensive but it should be something that should be tried if you have the time and budget. The Ritz is by far the best in London.The Savoy, The Dorchester,Browns, and Clariddge's are all expensive but worth it.The National Portrait Gallery,The Wallace Collection and the Langham are more affordable and equally as good. Fortnum and Mason on nearby Picacadilly is also worth it. Their food hall is amazing/and even if you don't have time for the full Afternoon Tea you could buy some tea to take back with you. The tin cans ar simply stunning in design.A great gift for those back home.You will find that a few of the hotels near the British Museum also offer Afternoon Tea/but the ones listed above are far better.One exception is Bea's of Bloomsbury which is well worth a visit.
