Camden apartment description

Big Ben, Tower Bridge, the Natural History Museum – all are visual icons of London, built by Victorians whose aspirations knew no boundaries - but those are not for rent. With them sits St Pancras Chambers, a gothic fantasy of bricks and spires.

The building, designated as a national historic landmark (Grade 1 listed) incorporates the St Pancras Renaissance Hotel (5 star Marriott), St Pancras Chambers (private apartments such as this) and Kings Cross St Pancras underground and train station below - the most interconnected train hub in London (6 tube lines inc direct access to Heathrow, Gatwick and Luton airports plus direct trains to Edinburgh, Paris and Brussels!)

LOCATION:
On the edge of fashionable Bloomsbury and well connected by underground, it is the perfect hub from which to explore London's sights. Restaurants, pubs and shops can be found in abundance both in the building and adjacent hotel as well as the general vicinity.

The perfect base to explore all that London has to offer.

THE APARTMENT:
This apartment is on the top two floors of St Pancras Chambers. Residents also have access to hotel facilities at additional cost (inc Spa, Pool and Gym)

The apartment is over the 4th and 5th floors of the building. There are two guest double bedrooms on the 4th floor (one ensuite) and third mezzanine room above the living room which is typically used as a third bedroom (it has 2 foldout single sofa beds which can be put side by side for a double). If not needed as a third bedroom, the mezzanine has also in the past been used as a reading room or as a kids play area (we have plenty of board games and puzzles).

We have 2 further foldout mattresses and one travel cot available on request. These can be placed in either bedroom.

The 5th floor area is an open plan Kitchen/Living Room.


CHECK-IN/CHECK-OUT TIMES
Check-in is typically any time after 4pm and Check-out strictly by 10am. I will certainly try to be flexible and it depends very much on how tight the turnaround is between your booking and the ones before and after. If your needs require an early check-in for example, I have often accommodated the needs of the tenants where possible but this must be by prior arrangement so please email me about your needs and I will try my best to accommodate.


BEFORE REQUESTING A BOOKING, PLEASE READ THIS:
Please remember, this is not a business. We are welcoming you into our own home. While we use it ourselves when we are in London, we have started to make it available when we are not! Please treat it as you would your own.

We have had some wonderful people stay here since we started making our apartment available and we would like to keep up that record. When you contact us, please tell us something about yourself, and your plans in London. Empty booking requests will be ignored.

                      Owner info

                      Year Purchased: 2013

                      About the owner: I have lived in Canada, Japan, the Emirates, Jordan, Scotland and England so far and spend copious amounts of time in the US. An applied mathematician and technologist by training. I have an avid (some would say obsessive) interest in political history, architectural history and especially, financial history. I collect 18th and 19th century bonds and banknotes that have particular socio economic significance. A number of these are on display in the apartment including a French revolutionary banknote, a bond from the building of the Panama Canal, an Ottoman Empire government bond amongst others.
