We truly enjoyed the Clerkenwell flat in London. David is a great communicator, helpful in making arrangements, and Tracey is very nice and flexible about check-in and check-out. The apartment is secure, spacious, and clean, the furniture comfortable and tasteful in leather and glass, and the kitchen and bath extremely nice and well-equipped--all better than pictured or expected. The view out the full-sized double windows in the living room is entertaining, with lively and friendly neighborhood activity. A very good grocery store is a half-block away, the bus stop is a block, good restaurants and food trucks abound, and people are friendly. The location is perfect, allowing for walking (about 15 minutes to walk to the Thames Blackfriars Bridge), riding the bus (63 is great for north-south and 55 east-west), and using the Tube from a couple of nearby stations, Farringdon or Chancery. Before and after running around town to museums, parks, and plays, the flat was an oasis. We loved it and hope to return.
We spent 5 nights here with our 10 and 12 year old sons and loved it. We walked into the centre of London each day, it is a decent but easy walk but if you'd prefer to take the tube Holborn station is in easy walking distance. There are plenty of food options close by to either eat out or buy ingredients to cook in the spacious kitchen.
Would definitely stay here again next time we visit London.
This place was fantastic. 24hr pool and hot tub. Owner very responsive. Ate breakfast at a place around the corner called Pret A Manger that has probably 10 different fresh squeezed juices, sandwiches, croissants, etc. Close to train station made it easy to get around.
This reasonably priced apartment has everything needed for a comfortable stay in London. Our 2nd visit was just as enjoyable as that of couple of years ago. Communication with the owners David and Sue was faultless...arrangements to check in were explained and a friendly helpful concierge can be contacted to obtain the keys.
While the apartment is situated on a busy road, traffic noise is minimal and the building is very quiet during the night. Access to bus stops nearby allows travel to Waterloo and Oxford Street.Farringdon station is less than 10 minutes walk away. (Very helpful for transport to Gatwick Airport)A local Sainsbury's supermarket is close by as well as an Italian Deli to assist self catering. The apartment has a well equipped kitchen including a washing machine.Comfortable bedding arrangements allow for extra guests in this spacious apartment.
The nearby area of Exmouth Markets provides many restaurant choices as well.
We highly recommend this apartment in Central London.
The property was as described in website and lived up to previous reviews.
The location is very convenient with buses at door or within a few minutes walk. The same with Farringdon station and tube. Shops and eating places all around.
It is on a busy road but the nights are quiet.
It has a well equiped kitchen, a washing machine and a good TV. Other little things made it even better, like power adapters.
The complex has a small gym and a pool that we were very pleased to have available.
The concierge was available within 10 minutes of our arrival to open the apartment and orientate us. He was contactable throughout the day.
We stayed for 3 weeks for a work commitment and were very pleased with the home comforts. The owners were contactable and responsive when some bedding issues were uncovered. Would suggest a bathroom steam extractor if this is possible. Cannot reccomend it any higher otherwise, wishing for a good excuse to return!
My first VRBO fail. One of the two beds was left with dirty sheets. The landlord said I should have requested 2 clean beds. ???? Despite saying he would have the bedding issue taken care of, one of us slept on a pull out chair the entire week as no one came by to clean the bedding or take out the old trash. There was open containers of food such as cheese fruits milk. The owner said he thought I might want them and that I should just dispose of them. That's his job. There was an abundance of mouse traps around and he said they had seen mice the week before so put them out. The tumble dryer is just an electric clothes rack which gave me a shock when I touched 2 sides at once and took over 12 hours for items to dry. There is only one window/door to allow fresh air and since there is no air conditioning and the weather was topping 80 we needed to have that open at all times. This meant listening to a very busy street full of traffic at all hours of the day and night. Sitting on the sofa with the door open I was able to make eye contact with commuters on the 2 story buses. Not at all what I expected. All my previous rentals have been just as stated and received 5 stars.
The building is located in the Clerkenwell Road between the West End and the City. It is ideally placed for sight seeing, shopping, or to visit London's many cultural attractions. The nearest stations are Chancery Lane on the Central Line and Farringdon (Circle, Hammersmith & City lines, with direct trains to Gatwick and Luton airports). Euston, Kings Cross and the Euro Star terminal at St Pancras are all within easy reach. Within 10-20 minutes walk you can be strolling along the Thames, visit Tate Modern, walk along the Strand, hunt for bargains in Covent Garden or visit the world famous opera. Russel Square and the British Museum are a short walk away as are the Angel, Islington, the Barbican, the Museum of London and St Pauls Cathedral. There are many restaurants, bars and pubs in the vicinity plus a wide range of grocery shops and convenience stores plus a daily street market for all your needs.
