|Minimum Stay||1 - 4 nights|
The apartment is a spacious two-bedroom apartment with one and a half bathrooms, a separate living room & separate kitchen on historic, pedestrian only, (but quiet) Floral Street in Covent Garden. The absolute center of London’s Theater Land. It is a lovely, comfortable apartment furnished in an inviting, traditional style. It has only recently been refurbished so fixtures, furniture and fittings are all of high quality and recently installed.
Master Bedroom has a Super King size bed. 2nd Bedroom has a standard double bed. Large Living room with dining area. Fully equipped large kitchen. This apartment is pretty much fully equipped and the location!
Ann is a londoner born and bred. After several years living in France she came to the conclusion that there was no point in living out of the center of London since when she 'came to town' she simply didn't have the time or the energy to spend time either in the car or on public transport.
Floral Street (as its name suggests) was the main street in the old Covent Garden flower market. It is about as central as you can get if you want to be in the London of theaters. museums, art galleries, music and restaurants. As well as its superb location the apt is in a well looked after building with an elevator. Floral Street is pedestrian/taxi only.
The benefits of being here are simply too numerous to list - suffice it to say that if your interests are in any way cultural or gastronomic you are where you need to be if you are visiting London! You are within a short walk of (amongst hundreds of other things) The Royal Opera, The British Museum,The National Gallery,Royal Festival Hall, National Theatre, Colosseum Theatre, Tin-Pan Alley, Westminster Abbey, Trafalgar Sqaure, House of Parliament, Big Ben, St Paul's Cathedral, Oxford Street with the famous Selfridges department store and all the other british shops and so much more.......
We so enjoyed our stay with you. Many thanks for arranging such a lovely stay for us, I have already told several of my friends about you.
We stayed in this apartment for 2 1/2 weeks in September and had a wonderful London visit. The site is ideally located just about two blocks from the Covent Garden plaza with all of its pubs and shops, but on a quiet street so you get the best of both worlds. You have two groceries nearby (we used Marks & Spencer the most), but if you prefer to eat out, there are multiple good restaurants (Le Garrick Brasserie is a great little French place).
It seems like most things are within walking distance (theaters, museums, galleries, the Thames, etc.), but if you prefer to ride, stops for the Piccadilly (tube to Heathrow), Northern and Central tube lines are within a couple blocks. The kitchen is very well appointed and makes it very easy to cook dinners in if you prefer (which we often did). It was really like a home away from home and their delightful housekeeper comes once a week. Linda is very interested in making your stay as comfortable as possible and requests feedback on ways to improve the experience. We had just the two of us for this stay, but we always enjoy the extra space that you get with two bedroom apartments. Two couples may feel a little cramped in the second bedroom, but it would be ideal for a family. I would certainly recommend the apartment to someone coming to London for either a short or an extended visit.
We spent a very full and wonderful week at this well outfitted centrally located flat in Covent Garden. Comfortable beds and linens, full kitchen and laundry were greatly appreciated by our family of 4 adults. Theatres, grocery shopping, retail fashion stores, a myriad of pubs and restaurants are all within a few minutes walk. Reservation procedures and Check in/out were effortless. Will definitely return! Thank you Ann & your team.
We thoroughly enjoyed our 9night stay at this well equipped flat in popular Covent Garden. The location puts you in the perfect spot to see the sites of London. Our family of 5 loved the convenient access to the Tube and easy walking distance to Trafalgar Square. The flat was equipped with everything a family needs including full kitchen, laundry, SmartTV and wifi. The Tesco(grocery store) was conveniently located 2 minutes away. The beds were very comfortable and we were pleased that they supplied an air mattress to accommodate our 3rd child. We highly recommend this flat and would return to it without hesitation. Ann and her team were friendly and accommodating! Thank you!!!
We enjoyed 3 nights in this clean and comfortable apartment. It was situated near the Covent Garden tube stop and near plenty of restaurants. Plus an easy walk to many other sites. We would certainly return to this apartment. The beds were super comfortable and the apartment had everything we needed.
The flat is located on the third (USA fourth) floor of a 1985 brick building of high quality and attractive design.
Location is outstanding in the very center of London's Theater district.
Many of London's treasures are within a short walk viz:
1 block to the spectacular new Royal Opera House (do take the backstage tour) The Royal Ballet School is on the same street as the flat.
7 minutes to the British Museum (see the newly restored Reading Room)
2-10 minutes to most West End Theaters, 10 minutes to the magnificent National Gallery, National Portrait Gallery (newly expanded) in Trafalgar Square, Leicester Square, the Courtauld Gallery (impressionist Art); 15 minutes across Waterloo Bridge past views of The Eye (Ferris wheel) to the South Bank Center with the National Theater (3 stages), Royal Festival Hall (3 venues), Old Vic and Young Vic. 20 minutes to Westminster Abbey, Buckingham Palace, st Pauls, Fleet Street and the Tate Modern art gallery. And the "original" Tate art gallery.
Floral Street, itself, is no longer the epicenter of the London flower market. Instead it has been turned into a pedestrian-only (except for your taxi) oasis of laid-back, ultra-cool fashion and hip. The apartment is just meters away from the central piazza of Covent Garden and its Opera, Ballet, buskers and designers. Floral street itself also harbours the men's and women's Paul Smith.
Being at the center of the center of ‘Theatrical London’ means of course that transport links are superb and the range of shopping & number of restaurants, cafes, bars and pubs is mind-boggling.
There are 5 underground stations, all lines are within 5-15 minutes walk, many bus routes & of course the famous Black Cab taxis.
The Covent Garden (Piccadilly to Heathrow airport) & Leicester Square Underground ('tube') also has Piccadilly & Northern lines) are both around the corner (half a block away) It is 10 minutes to Holborn (Piccadily & Central lines). 10 Mins to Embankment and Charing Cross (Bakerloo , Northern, Central, Circle & District lines) Also around the same area is Charing Cross Station with trains to many parts of Great Britain.
The select few people who are able to afford private accommodation in Floral Street include world-famous conductors, musicians, dancers & impresarios people for whom the location and the “buzz” are vital. We hope you too will feel just that bit ‘special’ in this very special location.
