This flat is in a prime location, is spacious and comfortable and stands apart from the 'conversion' flats so often found in central London. The living area is a real 'salon' with high ceilings and beautiful moulding works on both the walls and ceiling. It is a luxurious space.

Fantastic location. It is a little like spending a holiday with all the home comforts and feeling a little grand!

Exquisite apartment in an excellent location

This apartment made our recent vacation in London a very special event. The flat itself is gorgeous, with beautiful moldings, high ceilings, and a feeling that you are stepping back into an elegant time. The kitchen was well equipped and compact. We did not have any problem with noise from the pub below the bedroom, as the double-paned window and blackout shades were very effective. You simply cannot beat the location -- several Tube stops and train station within easy walking distance, restaurants and takeout food within steps, close to the theater district, the Strand, and Chinatown. Yet the street itself is very quiet. This is a perfect base for exploring London. Can't wait to return!

My husband and I stayed in this apartment for a week and our experience was outstanding. Public transportation just a minute away. Walking distance to MANY wonderful London sights. Many restaurants, grocery stores, etc. in the neighborhood. Totally equipped kitchen. We would stay here again in a heartbeat!

We stayed at 35 Craven Street in July of 2013 and highly recommend this home. Close to Charing Cross tube station and walking distance to all of Westminster and of course the Queen's London home, Buckingham Palace. The apartment is part of a block of homes that were constructed in 1730 and central to a deep understanding of the history of London. Close by is Trafalgar Square, Piccadilly Circus and The Strand. Kitchen, bathroom and bedroom are all good including a dishwasher. Master bedroom is comfortable and the bed is great. The salon (living room) is large and grand. The only negative is that there is some street noise from a bar down the street, but we were there during a heat wave and had the windows open. The architectural detail in the apartment is original and is beautiful. There is a small private alcove in the living room where there are two bunk beds, perfect for one or two more people. We were there for five nights and had a couple of lovely meals in. There is a good Marks & Spencers at Charing Cross station where you can buy very good meals that can be cooked quickly or that are already prepared. They also have an adequate wine selection. The kitchen is well equipped, with dishwasher and clothes washer, lots of dishes, glasses and pots and pans. The owner is readily available by email and we received full instructions on the operation of the apartment. Last but not least, the apartment is very close to the Piccadilly line which is the same line direct from Heathrow Airport. We would have no hesitation in staying here again.

We stayed at Craven St. for three weeks and felt like royalty the entire time. All our heart could need or desire was on premises. From the fellow who greeted us to Megalee who oversaw the flat, to Rosemary, the owner, who was always immediately forthcoming with help, answers, advice, etc., we were well cared for. There is no better location in all of London, right in its heart, on a quiet street that one finds after some turnings so very little traffic, and a block from the Embankment. The living room was so grand we had to pull ourselves away from its comforts in order to go out into London! Have no concerns regarding your stay here. Book with the utmost confidence.

Wonderful London Experience

My wife & I stayed here for 10 day this spring. The location is fantastic. If you stay here, I would encourage you to walk several blocks in all directions to see how close you are to so many London sites. An extraordinary number are really within an easy 10 minutes walking. These include Trafalgar Square, Parliament, Westminster Abbey, London Eye, National Gallery, and most London Theatres. Both the Charing Cross and Embankment Underground stations are literally around the block. As an unexpected benefit, the Benjamin Franklin Museum is next door to the apartment building. We had great fun taking pictures of both buildings and sharing them with our grandkids. In spite of being so close to so many things in such a large city, the street fronting the apartment is remarkably quiet. It is one way and is mostly lined with solicitor offices. There is essentially no vehicle traffic.
The pictures of the apartment interior are accurate. You could spend an entire afternoon just inspecting the woodwork in the Living room. It is unbelievable. It reminded me of something out of a PBS series. The kitchen is well equipped and fully functional. We paid a few visits to the Borough Market and were able to prepare some pretty impressive meals in a strange kitchen. But most of this probably had to do with the unbelievable quality of the market wares.
The Ship and Shovel Pub is in the back alley below the bedroom window. It is an authentic London pub and a great place for a pint and some pub fare. We spent a few afternoons there socializing with the locals. We found this very pleasant and unusual for a big city. I noted when we researched this place before renting, some comments about the noise from the pub. We didn’t find this to be a problem. In fact, I really think the pub is a plus.
All in all, a wonderful place to stay and experience London.
