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!

Elegance in the most perfect location!

  • 5 of 5
We planned our London escape from our normal lives to be one of high style, gastronomy, culture, art, history, and science. From my first glance at the grand piano, high and ornately molded ceilings and elegance of Rosemary’s flat, this had to be our place for the week--especially since this Georgian gem was at THE CENTRAL location of our adventures. It is up one interior flight of stairs. The flat enjoys high end luxuries. The front room is large and elegant while the kitchen is tiny and functional. This I used to great advantage to attend the annual Taste of London and bring home food goodies which could be heated in the oven. There is a coop store with lovely salads, veggies, and cheeses right at the end of the street in addition to many, many eateries nearby. The internet was peppy and permitted last minute bookings and searching for directions. The laundry was certainly appreciated as we left with everything ready for our hike on the Coastal Path of Wales. Note: Rosemary is originally from Wales.
The historical elegance of the Craven St. flat welcomed us after attending a candle-light concert of Handle and Mozart at St. Martin’s in the Field’s and inspired us to participate in the Big Sing at the Royal Opera House. Knowing that Rosemary was a highly accomplished opera star gave the flat an even more distinguished aura. Our opera director was directing the boy’s choir when we attended Sunday service at Westminster Abbey. On other evenings we saw plays and participated in the side-splitting Fawlty Towers Dinner--every event was “just around the corner and down the block.” The flat’s location encouraged us to get out and take advantage of London’s Covent Garden and West End night life. We loved never having to take a taxi home. The location was so perfect—we could visit a museum or wander then come “home” and get ready for the next event. Having a resting spot for an hour or so provided quick recharging for more exploration. One could pop out for a meal, drink, lecture, play and pop home and out again with little effort.
The pub just below the bedroom was energetically noisy the night we arrived—it was a perfect summer evening and throngs gathered to celebrate outside the pub. I found with the double windows in the bedroom and a set of ear plugs that this was not a major problem. All other evenings there were no issues and we visited the pub and enjoyed the tales of Ben Frankin’s partaking the brew here. Thanks Rosemary!

Loved the Apartment!

  • 5 of 5
Everything describing this apartment is 100% accurate! The location is next door to the very interesting Benjamin Franklin museum which shows one what the original 18th century building interior looks like before restoration. Nearby are two Underground Stations, the Thames, Trafalgar Square, museums, shopping, restaurants, etc. Everything was so easy to get to from this location! The most wonderful home-cooked, very reasonably priced meals can also be found nearby at the Cafe in the Crypt (St Martin-in-the-Fields) Trafalgar Square. It was very hard leaving this most elegant, comfortable "home away from home" at the end of a week's stay!

Elegant London flat

  • 5 of 5
This wonderful apartment more than lived up to the great reviews. I was apprehensive about being next door to Charing Cross Station and above a pub, but was pleasantly surprised by this peaceful, residential street. Turn onto it from the Strand and you are in another world. Enter the apartment and you will find a beautiful restored space with its 1730 architectural details intact. Double-glazing plus 11 pm pub closing time meant no
problem with noise. It is a marvelous base from which to explore London. The apartment is clean and well equipped. Rosemary, the owner, is easy to work with and responded quickly to all of my questions. I recommend the apartment highly and hope to return.

Exquisite apartment in an excellent location

  • 5 of 5
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!

Exceptional location, very homey apartment

  • 5 of 5
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.
