Overview

About the property

US based London Connection 3 bedroom 2 bath apartment in Piccadilly Circus

This is exciting, believe me! To stay in a 3-bedroom accommodation in the heart of Haymarket for a visit to London has to be fabulous. Her Majesty’s theater is just down the street. Theatre Royal is just a few doors down from this flat. One evening, you can see PHANTOM OF THE OPERA and the next evening you must see Ralph Fiennes in the TEMPEST–all just out your door. Wander to your corner and turned left, and you will be right in the heart of Piccadilly Circus; turn right and you are in Leicester Square. For theater people, you are right in the midst of it all–and I mean all. THIS IS THE REAL LONDON where you can walk everywhere, avoiding taxi costs and long tube rides. Exciting stuff. The accommodation itself is on the first floor, one flight of stairs, over a very historic shop. There are three double bedroom, all with queen size beds, built in cupboards, and lots of light. The master bedroom is to the back of the building and has an en suite bathroom–perfect! The other 2 double bedrooms share the second bahroom which has shower, tub, wash hand basin, and loo. The kitchen is fantastic with all machines including washer/dryer, fridge/freezer, dishwasher, microwave, toaster–everything. There is a great deal of work space. The lounge has been redone. It is a large space, lots of light, comfortable furniture, and interesting wall photos of London. It is colorful and very comfortable. Even though you are in the heart of London, you will not realize this when inside the property because all the windows have double glazing. Wow! This is a fabulous opportunity. Open the door, and there is London, ready for a visit. When considering the budget, size, and incredible location, this is an outstanding option.

5 night minimum for most reservations. 3 nights considered within 30 days of arrival.

Discounted monthly prices available.

Spacious and Centrally Located

  • 5 of 5

One of the best VRBO experiences I’ve had so far! Check in went very smooth, no one was checking out the day we arrived so we were allowed to check in right when we arrived in London. Lots of tips were given and all questions were able to be answered; as tourists in a new city that was very helpful. I chose this apartment based on his size and location. That was a great decision as we were very close to the Tube, Bus stops, Theater District, grocery stores, and a large array of restaurants. The apartment was very spacious and comfortably fit my family of 6 adults. It had everything we needed for a week stay including full kitchen so we were able to make/keep some snacks and light meals.

I knew going into the stay that it might be loud at night since we chose one of the most popular areas of town (Times Square of London as they say). During the weekdays it was not loud at all, on the weekends it was only loud in the room by the street, the other two rooms were very quiet. Didn’t experience any of the other noise complaints by another reviewer.

All in all I would recommend this apartment to anyone and would definitely choose it again if I return to London.

Great location!

  • 5 of 5

This flat was located in the very center of London, a perfect location for visiting the many sites. We also enjoyed walking to Soho, Covent Garden, etc. Extremely helpful and accommodating owners. Perfect for theatre lovers and anyone who wants to be in the heart of the action. The Tube is only a half block away.

Smack bang in the middle of everything!

  • 2 of 5

The location is definitely amazing, this property is near all the theatres, cafe's, restaurants etc. A couple of negatives though, when staying for only a few nights you don't want to have to buy laundry detergent so would have been good if this were included like the other places we'd stayed in the UK. The worst thing though was the noise throughout the apartment. The apartment above was so noisy as were all the other tenants walking around talking, screaming etc. at all hours of the night. There is some water pump or something in the complex that goes all night long and is impossible to sleep through so invest in some ear plugs.

The apartment was spacious, clean and comfortable otherwise, with lovely windows to look out and the people who we had to contact were very accommodating and friendly. This place was also very easy to book on HomeAway.

Excellent location, comfortable flat

  • 4 of 5

We just finished a weeks stay at this centrally located and well fitted flat. Our group of four adults and two kids could walk to many of the main sites within 15 minutes, and tube or bus anywhere else we needed to go. The flat is about 50 yards from the Piccadilly Circus tube stop, and there are many shops and restaurants within the surrounding neighborhood. It was great to have the Tesco and Whole Foods just a few minutes stroll away.

We were all very comfortable for our stay, the apartment had everything we needed including two spacious bathrooms, a fully equipped kitchen with even a washer/dryer, hair dryers for each bedroom, bedside lamps, and good wifi. The one downside is the neighborhood is quiet noisy on weekend nights, so if you like to sleep with windows open, as we do, be prepared for street noise and rowdy pub goers until all hours. It's a trade off for such a centrally located flat. The management was very responsive and even put a roll away bed in for us so we'd have a little extra sleeping space. All in all, we had a fabulous stay and all of us loved our London vacation.
