Overview

About the property

Apartment 3 Bed, 2 Bath (Sleeps 6)

This superbly located 2nd and 3rd floor family flat was recently renovated. The top floor living room and kitchen is full of light with an amazing roof terrace and spectacular views of the Shard and St Paul's.

Although stylish, the emphasis is still very homely and child friendly (we live in the ground floor flat below most of the year).

The bedrooms are all located on the same floor. We have two large bedrooms both with queen beds and very high quality mattresses. One bedroom is with an ensuite shower and WC.

There is a third bedroom with double bed and again good quality mattress.

All our linen is 100% cotton.

On the next Mezzanine floor up there is a bathroom with tub and shower and WC.

On the top floor is the kitchen, living room and terrace.

About owner/property manager

We have travelled extensively so may of the furnishings are from abroad.My husband and I both like design and have enjoyed making our home a welcoming and relaxed but stylish place to be

We live on the ground floor flat so are available to help with any queries you may have

owner/property manager purchased this apartment in 2012

Why owner/property manager chose Kings Cross

We love this area of London - very central yet also quiet, even has the feel of a village in the surrounding Georgian streets

What makes this apartment unique

Beautiful cooking and dining space to seat 8 people with the terrace enticing you outside - a gorgeous teak garden set allows you to enjoy al fresco dining (should London weather behave!)

Perfect for our family of 4!

  • 5 of 5

We just returned from a 4-night stay in London and had the absolute pleasure of staying in this apartment. It was lovely, plenty of space for our family (my husband and I and our two teenage children). The roof deck was an incredible bonus, perfect place to sit and relax after a long day of exploring the city, and offering great views of the London skyline. Having two bathrooms was also a plus! The place was very clean and very nicely decorated, and located in a quiet neighborhood, an easy uber ride away from all the must-see tourist attractions. We could not have asked for anything more. We would highly recommend this lovely home.

Wonderful Owner

  • 5 of 5

My family did not stay in this apartment. We had the difficult decision of picking this lovely place over another one. From reading the other comments, it would have been a wonderful place to enjoy the city. We had to pick the other property because of my elderly in-laws. The owner was expecially nice. We had a bit of confusion on the cancellation. She was quick to help me refund the money. Without having the pleasure of enjoying this place, I can say that the owner is a wonderful lady.

Absolutely Perfect!

  • 5 of 5

This flat was the ideal place for our one-week family vacation in London. Two adults and three kids (15, 15 and 11) fit very comfortably: Adults in BR1, two daughters in BR2 and son in BR3. Great location for our needs: 5-10 minute walk to Kings Cross/St. Pancras (access to Underground, Eurostar, National Rail, everything). Area has an urban but neighborhood feel. A fun market area within 5-10 minute walk. For Americans, it feels more snug than we are used to, but basically just more efficient use of space than is required in the USA. If you are looking for the wide open space of American homes/hotels, you will be disappointed. But it is charming and helped us realize how wasteful our own home is with space! Beds are comfortable, good hot water (though the water pressure was a tad low). Kitchen and breakfast area were great (we made breakfast at home most mornings and dinner a couple of times).

The owners are amazing (wish we could have gotten to know them better!). Typical warm Londoners who welcomed us in and offered good advice when asked. Nowhere is perfect (including your own home), but we could not have been more pleased with this lovely place to spend a special week as a family.

Enjoyable stay near Kings Cross

  • 5 of 5

This flat worked out well for a six day stay for my grown family of 6. The view off the porch was as lovely as pictured. We enjoyed watching New Year's fireworks off in the distance from there. The kitchen/living area was cozy and workable for us. Love the big table. We were easily able to eat breakfast and snacks while enjoying the view! The bedrooms were cozy but served our purposes well. We liked that we could get to Kings Cross station on local tube from Heathrow. Found out later that it was also a straight shot to Gatwick on the rail from Saint Pancreas Rail Station which is next door to the Kings Cross station. Emily was a gracious Host and I would recommend this lodging for those looking to stay in this area.

Quaint flat in a great location.

  • 5 of 5

We were 6 adults and expected to be a little cramped but were pleasantly surprised. The flat is well equipped, beds were super comfy and kitchen served us well. The water pressure was a little off at times, but this is to be expected in older Georgian houses. The little terrace off the kitchen was useful, even in the winter. Overall we had a lovely time, a wonderful family Christmas, and an absolutely lovely stay in London.

In a great area! Easy walk to Kings Cross and Angel stations. Beautiful view on the patio deck. Both host and service workers were very friendly and accommodating. Would definitely stay here again.

The Grade II listed townhouse is set in a conservation area of Georgian London and whilst very quiet, the busy and vibrant neighborhoods of Islington and Clerkenwell are just five minutes away, offering theaters, cinemas, a fantastic range of shops, bars and restaurants. Exmouth Market is a very tranquil and friendly pedestrianized street with back to back bars and restaurants. Chapel Market is a traditional fruit and veg market near the Angel which operates every day. Lots of great places to eat and hang out like real Londoners! With Kings Cross tube also only a few minutes walk away this is the ideal hub for almost anywhere in London.
