Property description

Whenever most people think of travelling their first thought in accommodation is to go and look for a hotel room. A smart traveller like yourself realises that paying outrageous amounts of money for a ROOM (and many times rooms if you are travelling with your family and friend) is not a smart use of your money when you can get an ENTIRE APARTMENT for the same price or even less and have all the comfort, space and convenience instead. Ah! Let's not forget the overpriced breakfasts at that a hotel charges and you probably don't even eat it all!

A spacious open-planned kitchen and living room welcomes you with panoramic windows flooding it with natural light. The master bedroom has a king size bed and en-suite bathroom facilities. The second bedroom has a double bed and is served by a family bathroom on the same corridor.

Located in a private building on a quiet residential street, this high-standards apartment is built with all modern luxury living comforts including fully equipped kitchen and living facilities, boutique amenities and Egyptian cotton bed sheets and towels.

The apartment is close to all major transport links including four tube stations within close walking distance (5 – 10 minutes), various bus stops at the end of the street travelling to all ends of the city and only 10 minutes away from the international train station King's Cross St. Pancras, as well as from Waterloo, Farringdon and Charring Cross stations.

Back to that talk about hotels: we offer a weekly housekeeping service, concierge, airport transfers and LOCAL recommendations to bars and restaurants so you no longer need to restrain yourself to a single building and do the same thing everyday of your stay but you can still count on all the service of a top hotel!

We provide a bespoke service to all our guests so please get in touch and allow us to tailor-make your stay to cover all your wishes when coming to London.

Other Amenities

We offer a friendly atmosphere with all the prestige of a top address in London and boutique amenities. If you compare the value/money from a boutique, four or five star hotel in London you will see that you are much better installed staying with us! It is true that we don't have in-house spas, restaurants, gyms and bars... but you do have all of those within less than 5 minutes walk from your doorstep! And if you want to use the above facilities of any iconic hotel in London, why restrain yourself to only one of them when you can stay in your own apartment and enjoy them all? We are a family business dedicated and genuinely passionate about about welcoming you to our city. With extensive experience in 5* star and boutique hotels prior to start or business it would be an honour to have the opportunity to host you in London...moreless

Manager info

Year Purchased: 2013

About: Founded by husband and wife team Caio and Louise Merino, Merino Hospitality was conceived to fulfil the growing demand of worldwide travellers for an alternative accommodation to the standard hotel room. Our aspiration to provide guests with a unique experience whilst visiting London combined with industry experience and the guest at the core of our business led us to create this new venture. We will provide fully serviced accommodation in unique properties that appeal to both corporate and holiday travellers alike. Each property that we manage is cherry picked for its living space, location and character and are all uniquely designed, furnished and equipped with modern boutique comforts and amenities. In addition, Merino Hospitality will provide bespoke concierge services. Your luxury stay made even better! Your convenience, comfort and satisfaction are pinnacle to us and we are here to ensure that all your requirements are fulfilled during your time in London. Please get in touch and let's talk through your next visit and let us prove to you that we have your new address in London.

Why Bloomsbury:
This development was part of a major renovation of a Georgian town house that the owner and property developer took with pride and joy as his family residence. At the back of the beautiful house he built this building comprising of two modern apartments with 2 bedrooms and 2 bathrooms each and a completely independent entrance from the traditional Mews street behind. The large size of the apartment is very uncommon for central London and it's location in a quiet, safe street is even rarer!

The Unique Benefits at this Guest House:
The superb location in Central London within easy access to all corners of the city provides a quiet heaven amidst the chaos of London. There are parks, shops, history, museums, theatres, restaurants and bars all within walking distance even if you decide to head towards Soho or Convent Garden at only a 10 minutes walk! Unlike a hotel room you get an ENTIRE APARTMENT with all the space and comfort that you can wish for when travelling. Complimentary wireless internet, weekly cleaning service, over 75000 free movies on demand, fully equipped kitchen, luxury linen and a lovely welcome basket await for you free of charge!
