A light, bright, spacious one bedroom apartment in central London between Bloomsbury, Kings Cross and Clerkenwell. With high ceilings and more windows than the average London apartment, this apartment has been fitted with quality appliances including Nespresso machine, 42 inch plasma 3D TV, washer/dryer and dishwasher. Stylishly minimalist, it is fitted out with a luxury kitchen and bathroom with waterfall shower with plenty of hot water, heated towel rail, UK king (equivalent to US queen) size bed and 600 thread count Egyptian cotton sheets.
The apartment is positioned close to major transport links: Chancery Lane, Holborn , Russell Square and Kings Cross stations are all within 10-12 minutes walking distance.
Situated on the 5th floor and with double -glazed windows, you retreat from the busy London street into a surprisingly peaceful oasis (especially for Central London). Although the building has no lift, (I will of course help you with your bags) the apartment overlooks the rooftops of central London including Centrepoint and BT tower as well as enjoying beautiful afternoon sunshine and sunset.
Thanks to the Central Line, you can take a tube from Chancery Lane to Notting Hill Gate in 15 minutes, or to Liverpool Street Station in 7 minutes. However, it is literally in the middle of so many amazing places that an easy walk or quick bus will take you to explore Oxford Street, Covent Garden, the British Museum, the British Library, Trafalgar Sqaure (and the National Portrait Gallery), Big Ben and the Houses of Parliament, Westminster Abbey, the River Thames and South Bank (the Tate Modern and the London Eye). For eating nearby the flat there are loads of restaurants on the street below or why not discover on one side the gorgeous restaurants of Exmouth Markets, St John Street and Smithfield’s, and other side, Bloomsbury, Soho, Noho (Charlotte Street), and only slightly further Mayfair and the West End. Situated in the area of one of the four Inns of Court (professional association for barristers and judges) the apartment is also very close to the Royal Courts of Justice.
Whatever your interest, I can provide you with great recommendations for wonderful London restaurants and a simple mobile phone and sim card if you require.
Any questions please just ask. I look forward to meeting with you.
No smoking in the apartment. Please be respectful to neighbours. No parties please.
A House Manual will be provided on arrival which includes tips and explanations as well as rules but one major request is that you please do not put hot pans on the kitchen worktop. Thank you!
Very warm welcome and clear detailled explanation to reach the flat. The flat is really well located to reach easily London's famous place. Everything was fine as describe, the flat is well equiped, we really feeled at home. Thanks Jac
Jac and Eleanor were very helpful, arranging for transport to pick us up from the airport to the apartment and back. The flat was clean, very modern and chic. Amenities were provided and I felt right at home.
This was my first Airbnb experience, and Jac made it very pleasant and hassle-free; quite frankly, she went above-and-beyond in some ways too.
First and foremost, the apartment was just as described--"stunning"--and offered no unpleasant surprises. It's a convenient 5 - 10 minute walk to the Central line, and it seemed like there were a few bus lines that ran nearby as well (though we did not take these).
As a hostess, Jac was very responsive to all questions; she provided a thorough set of restaurant recommendations; and, she helped arrange a car service to pick us up at the airport, going so far as to ask the driver to pick up some fresh bread for us to get us settled in.
Real bonus points: Jac wouldn't accept our reservation request until she was certain that we would be comfortable with the walk-up to the apartment. That's just honest and forthright, and I really appreciated it.
We loved staying in this cool and comfortable apartment. The neighborhood is great; very walkable and close to public transportation.
Jac was very helpful and responsive prior to and during our visit.
Would definitely recommend to a friend and/or stay again.
The apartment was fabolous combined with a warm and thoughtful welcome! It felt like home, nothing missing and everything in great shape incl. bed & linnen, kitchen & utilities, bathroom. Will return soon :)
L'appartement est accueillant, la cuisine très bien équipée et tout est neuf.
Jac's flat was amazing! It appeared just as pictured, had all the conveniences as described, and was impeccably clean. The neighborhood was very easy to navigate and incredibly safe.
