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.

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.

Perfect Location!

  • 5 of 5

We loved our flat in the middle of all the action in Piccadilly! The location was perfect for walking and taking the underground to all the hotspots in london. The beds were comfortable and the rooms quite spacious, especially for London. Everyone we had contact with from reservation, driver from the airport, to the greeter at the flat, were really helpful! We were three couples visiting and we loved every moment of our time in London - thanks for everything!

Perfect Flat & Location!!

  • 5 of 5

We had a FANTASTIC time in London and absolutely loved the location of this flat. This is a great spot and convenient to everything. We walked to Piccadilly Circus (right outside the door), Buckingham Palace, Trafalgar Square, etc. Whole Foods and Tesco is a short walk away. All of the mgmt. was excellent. 6 adults (3 couples) stayed for 5 nights. We would definitely recommend!

In the Middle of Everything

  • 5 of 5

Absolutely wonderful. We were traveling with 3 kids and the size of the flat was perfect for the 5 of us. The apartment was clean, well-appointed, and had a very modern feel. We took full advantage of the washing machine and kitchen.

The awesome location cannot be over-emphasized. Great dining options nearby, convenient grocery shopping a block away, (Tesco, Whole Foods), and so many tourist destinations are only a short walk. Our touristy highlights included the Churchill War Rooms, the British Museum, the London Eye, Westminster Abby, and St Paul’s Cathedral, all of which were within easy walking distance (including the 500+ steps to the top of St Paul’s… a good way to start the day). We also caught a City Cruises ride on the Thames from the London Eye to Greenwich (and back) for a visit to the Royal Observatory and to stand astride the Prime Meridian. We did opt for a trip on the Tube for our tour of the Tower of London.

The closest thing to a complaint we could find is with the wireless internet connection. Our family of iPhones and iPads overwhelmed the connection, but the fix was to simply reboot the modem, which we did on multiple occasions. #firstworldproblems

The let-in person was helpful, knowledgeable, and very welcoming. We also took advantage of their driver, who made great conversation on the state of English football on our trip to Heathrow.

Our friends recommended this flat based on their stay the previous year and they were spot on. It’s hard to imagine a better location. The flat at 3-33 Coventry will be our first choice on our next trip to London.

Central Cozy

  • 5 of 5

We had a WONDERFUL stay! The apartment is well located, clean, bright and comfortable. It was perfect for our family. While there is street noise, which is to be expected given the central location, it was not as bad. We would definitely stay again! The location had something for everyone. Perfect place to stay with our teenagers. Everything was within walking distance. We had a spectacular time!
