About this listing
A GREAT CENTRAL LONDON LOCATION FULLY EQUIPPED FOR SIGHTSEEING OR BUSINESS VISITORS.
10 minutes walk from Buckingham Palace, Westminster Abbey, St. James Park, Horse Guards Parade, this self-contained and fully equipped studio flat is ideally located to be a really central pied-a-terre for visitors to London.
The flat is a studio on the fourth floor of a secure block with entryphones and two lifts looking out over a quiet pedestrian passage.
It consists of:
•A small entrance hall with a coat cupboard and big shelf over it to store your suitcases.
•A separate kitchenette with electric hob and a microwave/oven/grill, refrigerator, washing machine, Nespresso machine, toaster, electric kettle and all china and equipment necessary.
•The fully tiled bathroom has a full length bath with hand-shower unit and new thermostatic head shower, hand basin and WC.
•The flat is comfortably furnished for two people, with one queen-size bed. There is also an automatic inflatable mattress for one extra person for shorter stays, and a folding travel-cot for babies up to 15kgs (see photo). There is hanging space, shelves and drawer space. There is an iron and ironing board, a hair drier, basic sewing kit, radio, Bluetooth music system, Smart TV with Netflix and Chromecast.
For business travellers there is high speed internet and a WiFi and Airplay all-in-one printer/copier/scanner. Also a X-cut shredder so you don't have to travel on with confidential trash. Easily connect up the Smart TV as a 32 inch wireless monitor to your laptop/tablet from the proper writing/typing desk. There is a post-office and courier services available just round the corner.
There is good central heating and hot water. The block is not centrally heated in the summer, so there is an electric fire in case of cold days.
The rent includes heating in winter, hot water, electricity, linen and high-speed broadband connection.
There is excellent easy shopping 5 minutes away on Victoria Street: Waitrose, a Marks and Spencer with good food hall and groceries, the usual High Street stores, supermarkets, fast-food outlets, take-aways and some nice pubs mean you can get meals and other necessities pretty much 24/7. There is also a great range of up-market (including Michelin-starred) restaurants nearby if you are looking for fine dining.
For exercise-lovers, you are three minutes jog from the contiguous green areas of St.James' Park, Green Park and Hyde Park with great 5, 10, 20 k circuits. There is a Pilates mat in the flat and also a Bikram Yoga centre in the next block. A public swimming pool open (phone number hidden) is just 10 minutes walk away.
No smokers, no pets.
No smokers and no pets please.
The kitchen and bathroom are stocked with every-day consumables and we like to invite our guests to feel free to make use of these on the basis of "use and reasonably replace".
The telephone only takes incoming calls, and can also be used to dial emergency services. However the Internet is high-speed and can comfortably be used for video-calling.
The price includes one full set of linen and towels, renewed every two weeks for longer staying guests. I do ask for an additional contribution for laundry if guests use extra linen and towels, which are stocked in the apartment.
