The flat is on the 4th floor with a LIFT with wonderful views over central London–really, it couldn’t be better. The flat has two double bedrooms with a queen size bed in each. Hardwood floors throughout. There is plenty of cupboard space filled with dishes, glasses, and silverware. The bathroom has a tub and a shower over the tub, wash hand basin, and loo. The living room has an open plan with lounge on one end and kitchen on the other–perfect for family life while visiting London. Wonderful to include a washing machine/dryer, dishwasher, cooker, microwave, fridge/freezer, and cooking supplies. There is British television and Internet. If you want to visit London and stay “in the midst of things,” this is the right place. The flat is bright and cheery and above all, it is WELCOMING. Nice property.

Wonderful, centrally-located flat in Covent Garden.

  • 5 of 5

Our family of four stayed in Gloucester Mansions for a week in early November. The flat could not have been more centrally located. Front bedroom was a bit noisy (to be expected given the central locale!) but the back bedroom was shockingly quiet. We were able to walk to lots of tourist spots or hop on the nearby tube to anywhere we wanted to go. Tons of restaurants nearby, including several that appealed to picky 7 and 9 year old boys! And the entire staff at London Connection was amazing. Great communication at every possible step of the process. We would book through them again without reservation.

Terrific Flat in London

  • 5 of 5

Our family of 5 stayed in this flat for a week in June 2016. It was excellent! Flat was beautiful, full of all the amenities needed for our family. We ate all our breakfasts and suppers here, were able to launder our clothes.. Grocery stores were only a short (10 minute) walk away. Easy walking to tube stations, coffee shops, restaurants, theatres, Leicester Square, Trafalgar Square , even British Museum. Great to be in the middle of everything. (Go to Udderlicious Ice Cream and Monmouth Coffee). Front bedroom a little loud at night, but that's London! Back bedroom was lovely cool and dark so kids slept very well. Would definitely recommend and stay here again!

Beautiful Flat in London!

  • 5 of 5

The Gloucester Mansion flat was perfect for our first ever trip to London. It was centrally located, just a couple minutes walk from the Leicester Square Underground station, within walking distance of China Town, Covent Garden, The National Gallery, West End Shows, Trafalgar Square and much more. Restaurants and great shopping abound in the area. Try eating at Scoff and Banter on Monmouth Street for great British food.

Ricardo, who met us and gave us keys, was wonderful. He familiarized us with all the amenities and answered all our questions about both the flat and London.

The kitchen allowed us to spend much less on food and the washer/dryer allowed us to pack fewer clothes. We couldn't be happier with the flat, your service and the great price. If we ever travel to London again, we'll be calling London Connection!

We couldn't be happier with your service!

Lovely Week in London

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful visit to London and the flat in Gloucester Mansions was perfect! Situated just between Leicester Square and Covent Garden, we were right in the middle of everything. Weekend nights are a little loud but the air is filled with energy and this is where all the action is. We looked out our window to the theatre where The Commitments is performed, and walked out the door practically into the theatre where Stomp is performed. We purchased discounted tickets at TKTS for both of these shows and they were both awesome!

We definitely recommend getting The London Pass which provides entry into most of the sites visitors would want to see and the Oyster Card which makes getting around London via the Tube and the red double decker buses very easy. Just riding around on the bus is a great way to view London. The London Pass app provides the tube and bus schedules as well as descriptions of all the local sites. The London Pass also includes a deal for free cell phone during your stay which would have been nice to know about, and 5 pounds to spend at a souvenir shop, The London Crest. A boat ride (also included with the London Pass) down the Thames to Greenwich to see the GMT was a great thing to do on our first full day there. Sitting on the upper deck of the boat enjoying the sunshine for an hour while listening to the captain narrate about sites along the river, followed by lunch at a pub and a short walk to the GMT, was a nice relaxing afternoon and allowed us some time to recover (with a short nap on the return trip to London) from our jet lag.

Buckingham Palace, Westminster Abbey, Tower of London, London Bridge, Kensington Palace, the London Eye, St. Paul’s Cathedral, were all beautiful. Be sure to see the Royal Mews at Buckingham Palace after viewing the changing of the guards. Consider going to hear the organs being played at the Abbey. And relax and enjoy some pastry and tea or a late lunch in any pub. A week visit to London was perfect!

Being greeted at the airport by our driver and then at our flat made arrival so easy. And our driver back to the airport was so nice and friendly, he felt like family. Thanks so much for all your help with the arrangements for our London vacation.

Magnifique appartement

  • 4 of 5

Nous avons passé trois jours merveilleux à Londres en famille.

L'appartement est fantastiquement bien situé, on peut se ballader à pied dans Covent garden, Soho, aller au bord de la tamise. Il est entouré de nombreux restaurants.

L'appartement est spacieux et tres bien décoré, il y'a tout ce qu'il faut.

Le seul bémol c'est le bruit , les soirées londoniennes sont tres bruyantes et nous avons mal dormi.

Sinon londres est une ville magnifique, où il y a énormément de choses à visiter.

Nous avons adoré Camden Market, c'est tellement typique.

Nous remercions l'agence London connection qui a été tres efficace en tout.

Car: not necessary

LOCATION! LOCATION! LOCATION! The perfect formula for a successful vacation in London is a comfortable flat in the best location. This flat in London’s exciting theater district is PERFECT. From the flat, you can walk down Shaftesbury Avenue to Piccadilly Circus, past all the theaters and London’s nightlife. A visitor can be to Leicester Square in five minutes, to the National Gallery in five minutes, to the National Portrait Gallery in five minutes, to St Martin’s in five minutes, to Covent Garden in five minutes; 5 minutes is perfect. Buckingham Palace is 12 minutes from the flat, and the House of Parliament and Westminster Abbey are 15 minutes walk. the Leicester Square Tube Station is nearby, and there are taxis lined up as far as the eye can see. For me, a flat has to be within walking distance of major monuments because I prefer to walk to enjoy every aspect of London life.
