Overview

About the property

Uniquely Central Fully-equipped 2-Bed/1.5 Bath Self-Catering Flat Sleeps 1 to 4

Welcome to the very heart of London! Overlooking Soho and Covent Garden, this apartment has wonderful panoramic views of the capital, and is in walking distance of the main London tourist attractions...

Nearby is Leicester Square, Trafalgar Square, Picadilly Circus, The British Museum, Number 10 Downing Street, Big Ben and The Houses of Parliament, Buckingham Palace, St Paul's Cathedral, and 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. Excellent transport links to anywhere you need to go are offered because Tottenham Court Road Underground Station and Bus Stops are right next to the building ...

Our great location attracts both holiday-makers and business clients for both short and long stays from 1-week to several years.

Previous tenants include: Deutschebank, Ernst and Young, Pricewaterhouse Coopers, The Royal Opera House, Chicago The Musical and Borders Books-Music-Video Stores.

Apartments in this medium size 'high-rise' block start 6 levels up from street level and bedrooms have secondary glazing, so for such a central convenient location, many clients comment on how quiet they are. There are 2 fast, good-sized passenger lifts so you do not need to cope with lots of stairs!

The 2 bedrooms are arranged as Bedroom 1: 1 x SuperKing(UK 6ft wide x 6ft6' long) and Bedroom 2: 2 x Singles (UK 3ft wide x 6ft6' long).

If you would like to make a booking, there are very few terms and conditions(!) so just let me know your dates and request a booking form, or even simpler give me a call to book with credit card

The nearest London Underground Station is just outside the building and is Tottenham Court Road (at the junctions of Oxford Street, Charing Cross Road and New Oxford Street).

=========

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 rentals)

About Apartment Centre (Check-In Agent for Property Owner)

Professional working couple in 40's

Apartment Centre (Check-In Agent for Property Owner) purchased this apartment in 1998

Why Apartment Centre (Check-In Agent for Property Owner) chose Holborn and Covent Garden

The shops, restaurants, theatres, museums and the buzz of all of London life is on your doorstep, or steps away!

What makes this apartment unique

I love being so central, yet be able to sit on the balcony and watch London from uptop, or be inside and feel cocooned from city life whilst dipping in whenever I want.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Excellent central location! The maid service mid-week was very nice – really freshened the place up. Kitchen was wonderful! Very efficient and well-equipped with a great view. It was nice having the sleeping area upstairs from the living area – with 4 guests we were able to have privacy when needed yet plenty of social space as well. We were pleased with the apartment. The location was so convenient and the view was fabulous. We were able to walk to many great restaurants and bars in Soho and Covent Garden (Il Forno, Rodos Greek Restaurant, First Out Café)

Spring Break in London - Perfect Place

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in this great apartment for our Spring Break Trip to London. My wife and I took our two boys (ages 9&11) for a week in the city. The apartment is great. There is quite a bit of construction in the area but was very quiet at night. We were out touring most of the day but even if we came back during the day I would classify the noise as just city noise.

Bedrooms - One room had two twins for the boys and the other room has a real american king. Confortable mattresses and very quiet.

Kitchen - Full size fridge and full kitchen although we only used the fridge.

Bathroom - 1 1/2 upstairs. Having the extra 1/2 was helpful for the four of us. Shower / tub is good.

Patio - There is a small patio that was nice to have a coffee or drink at the end of the day.

Den - Nice tv with alot of channels. The unit we stayed in had a small table for dining, two arm chairs and a large couch.

Wifi - Great signal downstairs, ok upstairs.

Location - Couldn't be better. I could see how some might have a hard time finding the door but we walked straight too it. The directions they provide are very thorough. The subway is right around the corner, a lot of restaurants in the area. I would recommend the Flat Iron which is just down the street. Once they finish the train from Heathrow to the station on the same block it will be even more convenient. Many theatres are close by as well.

Laudry - full washer and dryer on the floor below. We washed mid week and had no issues.

Manager - Si couldn't have been better. He gave a thorough run down of the unit.

Booking - Si replied right away to confirm availbility. They do request a credit card outside of VRBO that did seem a bit "shady" but I once i spoke to Si I felt better about the arrangement. There were no issues.

Overall a great experience. Location was fantastic and we would rent this apartment again.

Thanks to Si and team.

Owner's Response: Thank you for a perfect review! So glad our efforts made for a great stay. As we do not charge any security deposit, or hold any extra monies from our guests, we do like to ensure we cover any loss of keys, minor damages with card details upon arrival, and also as a way to check guest IDs. This has been our policy for 20 years, way before VRBO was bought out and started taking payments online - we used to handle all the payments ourselves. Now people are questioning why we ask for them (yet ALL hotels do at check in, no matter which site you booked on). We may review the policy, and see if our guests are happy to pay a deposit in future, and wait for it to be returned after they have left. Generally we have preferred to work on trust and have not seen the need for withholding extra funds, but the market has changed and maybe people are happier with that? Anyway, the team is delighted to read your review and send their regards.

Big cozy flat in fantastic central location

  • 5 of 5

A very comfortable big flat within walking distance to all the amenities. Fantastic food locations right out the front door and a quick walk to covent garden. Flat was clean, well stocked kitchen, and comfy beds and linen. Manager was very helpful with directions, check in and honesty about the location. A bunch of construction in the area but flat was super quiet and it was not a big deal. Great find

Owner's Response: Thank you! Just to confirm, our beds are Super Kings (6 foot wide) as per our listing description, so are actually larger than King (5 foot wide) beds. Though many people also call them doubles! Our taller guests really appreciate the extra large beds. Glad it couldn't have been better for you - we aim to get it as right as this - and your kind words are reward for us.
