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 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)

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.

Great central location with views

  • 5 of 5

This unit is perched above the current construction works at Tottenham Court Road which we found endlessly fascinating. The noise restricted the time we could spend with the balcony door open BUT with so much to do right on our doorstep we were mostly out enjoying ourselves!

Si was very helpful, the bedrooms very comfortable and the plumbing works. The views of the area were extensive - London at our feet! There is a lot of natural light right through the unit.

The carpet will hopefully be replaced soon as it detracts from the general quality of the unit.

Overall : perfect for two couples as we were or a family who want to be right in London and walk to shows exhibitions and shops.

Owner's Response: Thanks for your superb 5-star review! It is so great to receive this and get 5-stars even with the construction works outside that are upgrading the local area. It was so nice that you rented the flat long-term with us. And the good news is that the carpet will be removed and we are scheduling it to be replaced with Oak Vinyl Flooring in the future (always easier to keep clean!)

Perfect Flat.

  • 5 of 5

Thank you Si. We choose London as a vacation spot for our family to reunite after 6 months and we could not have been happier with our choice of flats. First, Si was great. All of our inquiries were promptly answered. I know the big concern for this location was the construction, this was not a problem. Maybe some noise during business hours, but we were too busy enjoying London. We had the distinct fortune of staying during last week's heat wave, but following Si's instructions, we closed up tight during the day the and opened up at night and there was always a breeze. We were four adults and loved having the two bedrooms and two bathrooms and our favorite was having two floors. The flat was quiet, there was no noise between the living room and the upstairs, perfect for a group of independent adults. We really loved relaxing on the balcony in the evening and enjoying the city sites. This location is perfect for the theater district and within either walking distance to many sites or the tube. There is a tube station around the corner as well as many restaurants, pubs, shops and markets. We have no reservations renting this property again.

Absolutley Perfect!

  • 5 of 5

Our stay at this apartment was wonderful. Simon was waiting for us when we arrived, and went through all the details of the rental. The location was perfect – within a few minutes walking distance of all the shops, restaurants, and quaint little streets of Soho. The apartment had tons of space and all the amenities you can think of. The construction going on around the building (which Simon had forewarned us about) turned out to be a total non-event for us – it didn’t bother us in the least. No noise or inconvenience (the apartment is very soundproof). We loved coming “home” and relaxing after a busy day sight-seeing.
