Property description

Welcome to the very heart of London! Overlooking Soho + Covent Garden, this superior accommodation is ideal for singles, couples, families/groups, offers wonderful panoramic views of the capital, and is in walking distance of the main tourist attractions.

Nearby is Leicester Square, Trafalgar Square, Piccadilly Circus, The British Museum, No 10 Downing Street, Big Ben & The Houses of Parliament, Buckingham Palace, St Paul's Cathedral, The Tower of London. Right outside your door are the main London shopping, restaurant and theatre districts plus cinemas, museums, art galleries, nightclubs, parks, 24- hour shops etc, and excellent transport links to anywhere you need to go.

Our great location attracts both holiday-makers and business clients (Deutschebank, Ernst & Young, Pricewaterhouse, Royal Opera House, Chicago The Musical, Borders Books) ... click "MORE DETAILS" for full details + NEWS ...

Unit comprises: kitchen, lounge/diner with balcony, 2 double bedrooms, bathroom+2 toilets (see full layout on floor plan pic).

Where Exactly are you located: Centre Point! many advertisers on this site use the term 'Central London', yet for the unwary they are not! Some of them are at least an hour (some nearer two hours!) train ride into what is truly the centre of London. These apartments are beside the landmark Centre Point Tower at the top of Charing Cross Road.

The Charing Cross stone outside the station is the point where all distances in UK are measured from, so you can say we are not exaggerating about the location.

See the exact location and aerial photograph, or look up postal code WC2H 8LW on GOOGLE maps.

How Noisy Are The Apartments: The apartment is in a semi high-rise which overlooks but is set back from the junctions of Oxford Street + Charing Cross Road, on the small St Giles High Street. All rooms have secondary glazing so noise is not a big issue (secondary is better than double glazing - it is a whole additional sliding panel).

Clients who have viewed the apartment in person (banks, blue-chip companies, theatres always do this for longer stays) are often very surprised at how quiet this unit is for such a great, central location and we would not have had the client list above or the repeat business if this flat were too noisy. one example: for 6 years Deutschebank booked in graduates who need a quiet place to study and work hard on training modules - they would not do so if the unit was in any way unsuitable, or if feedback from the graduates was negative.

N E W S !: London Underground is rebuilding Tottenham Court Road Underground Station to relieve congestion, with a ticket hall nearly 6 times the current size, step free access and improved interchange. A new Crossrail line is being constructed, with services starting in 2017 providing 24 trains an hour. A new plazza is being created outside Centre Point. It will be great when finished, as tube journies from Heathrow will run direct to the apartment in 30 minutes - half the time it takes now! Please be aware that there is therefore construction work going on across the road, however we have had long let rentals in the building renew tenancies for 12 months, so it is not putting off renters. There may be WORKS going on (daytimes only) below the flat as the retail units are being refurbished this year

Please Note: This property is now set up to specialise in LONG-LET RENTALS (ie not nightly / weekly rentals)

The apartment is in a semi high-rise building on a small road called St Giles High Street, opposite the pretty St Giles in the Fields Church. This uniquely places the apartment at the direct meeting point of Soho, Convent Garden, Bloomsbury + Holborn - in an area also known as Centrepoint, the West End + Theatreland.

The rooms overlook the intersection where the top of Charing Cross Road joins New Oxford Street, Tottenham Court Rd + Oxford Street (London's main shopping streets). There are views of East and West London in the distance, so you can get some terrific sunrises and sunsets!

On the doorstep: Supermarkets (Sainsbury, Morrisons, Waitrose, M&S Simply Food, Tesco), Newsagents, Boots Pharmacy, Starbucks, Cafe Nero, Foyles bookshop, Carphone Warehouse, Argos, numerous Restaurants, Bars, Convenience Stores + Cafes.

This is a fantastic location to be based!
