Exceptional Location, Feels like a Home Away from Home

We stayed here for spring break with our 3 teenagers. The location couldn't be better. It is in the midst of everything you could need-restaurants, pubs, shopping, theater, the opera house, live entertainment, and the Underground. Bed space is a little tight for 5 adults but it works. The beds are comfortable, bathrooms are recently remodeled, everything is clean and well decorated. The floor plan is ideal for hanging out together in the spacious living room/dining room. There is a huge dining room table that can fit the whole family. There is a computer and printer with internet access in the loft that you are free to use. Paul was wonderful to work with and welcomes you into his home. Not much to say about the 5 flights of stairs to get up to the apartment-5 flights is 5 flights. The great part about that is that you are on the top floor so there is no noise from above and no noise from the quaint street below. You can find free live entertainment in the Covent Garden Marketplace- string quartets, opera singers, jugglers, etc- downstairs outside of the Crusting Pipe Bar and Restaurant. You can enjoy a beer, a glass of wine, or a spot of tea on the patio and enjoy the show. There is also a stand downstairs in the old Marketplace where you can get a bowl of fresh paella that is delicious. We will definitely hope to stay here again on our next trip to London.
