St. Pancras Apartment Rental Photos and Description
Bedrooms: 3, 1 en suite bathroom, 1 shower room. Sleeps 5 .
This luxury apartment is situated in a pretty gated, landscaped courtyard with a private garden in the heart of London. It is extremely central and within walking distance of the British Museum, London University and the new British Library. Public transport (busses and metro) to all parts of London is just a short walk away. A large large children's playground incorporating a small zoo (Coram Fields) is a 5 minute walk away. We are also just minutes away from the recently renovated award winng Brunswick Center which includes London's best supermarket, cafes, and boutique shops and an art cinema. This is a family owned apartment, available at reasonable rates, and is suitable for visitors who would enjoy living in the comfort of somewhere like home in central London. Please note the property is available for a minimum stay of 5 nights.
My family of 5 (2 adults, 3 teenagers) rented the flat earlier this month. It couldn't have been better. First, Olga was a delight in helping to work out a few details prior to the arrival. Then, even though our flight didn't allow us to get to the apartment before midnight, she was waiting for us. She'd left some food in the fridge which not only gave the kids a much-needed snack (it was only 6 pm body-clock-time), but also provided a basis for our breakfast the next morning. She'd even been kind enough to include a bottle of red wine that I'd rquested to help ease us on to bed.
The location of the flat is perfect. It's a very short walk to St. Pancras/King's Cross which was not only fabulous for the Tube connections but the second leg of our journey was going to be over to Brussels on the Eurostar which leaves out of St. Pancras.
The unit itself worked out great for everyone. The kids shared the hall bath and we had our own. The outdoor garden area was lovely.
As noted in the other reviews, groceries, laundry, pubs and restaurants all in easy walking distance. I'd highly recommend Karpo and The Harrison (Olga's suggestion). The Sunday Roast at The Harrison was a perfect wrap-up meal to our visit.
We will definitely come back if we make another family trip to London.

We loved this place! It was more than spacious enough for the four of us traveling together, and the location near St. Pancras Station and Kings Crossing made it so very convenient. The amenities are fabulous, and Olga is a very helpful and kind host, and she had a "food starter kit" ready in the refrigerator. We would most definitely stay here again.

Owner's Response: Thank you for your very kind review and hope to see you back again.
All of the other reviews are spot-on. This is a perfect place to stay as one explores London. It's an easy walk to King's Cross Station, where all of the major lines pass. It's an easy walk to markets, restaurants on Tottenham Court Road, to the British Museum. The apartment is very nicely furnished, comfortable and cozy. The beds had the most comfortable pillows of anywhere we've ever stayed. Hot water was always in supply. The owner was very kind. She even sent my son's 10-year-old baby blanket back to us after we returned home and realized we had left it beneath the bed linens.
My only concern about writing this review is that we will have trouble booking this flat again in the future. Thank you so much for everything!!

Our family of 5 (my husband, myself and our 3 young adult children) recently stayed here for a 1 week stay in London. It was ideal. Very close to the tube and train station. It made it quite easy to take a tube ride home in the middle of the day for some down time. There are small grocers and pubs nearby as well as a wonderful patisserie. The flat is accurately described. The bathrooms are updated and showers had excellent water pressure. The kitchen was well equipped and the owner provided us with starter supplies. The owner is incredibly welcoming and we truly felt like we were staying at a friend's home. Plenty of room for us to spread out. It was clean and well maintained. Everything was in working order. The garden looked charming. Unfortunately, the weather did not cooperate and we were not able to enjoy it. I would recommend this flat without hesitation and would certainly stay there again should I ever be fortunate enough to return to London.

Owner's Response: Dear Family,
We were delighted to receive your wonderful review, and hope to see you again some time in the future. The most important feature of our place is that it felt like a home to you and your family.. We are glad that you had a good time. Sorry about the weather....
I stayed here with my two nephews 12 and 13 for six nights. What a brilliant experience. The flat is so quiet and homely with everything you need. The location couldnt be better - very close to Kings Cross/St Pancras and Euston stations and shops and an excellent supermarket. We really appreciated the warm welcome from Olga and her thoughtfulness in providing a few food items to get us started for the first day and lovely fresh flowers. I will recommend this home to everyone and hope to stay again myself.

Owner's Response: Thank you for your kind review..Because this is our own flat it has certain advantages over a commercial property. We are very happy that you enjoyed the flat and found the location very convenient.
The flat is in Bloomsbury, within walking distance of the British Museum, galleries and exhibition centers. The area was populated by artists and writers, e.g. Hogarth, Charles Dickens and Virginia Woolf, and retains many of the buildings of the period. There is now an interesting mix of commercial and residential life with garden squares and parks, restaurants and health food shops. Saddlers Wells, RADA, and other theatres are very nearby.
The flat is excellently located for public transport. It is 5 minutes walk to Kings Cross station (trains to Scotland), St Pancreas (Eurostar) and Euston. The nearest tube stations are King's Cross, Russell Square and Euston. Bus stops are within 3 minutes walk, from where buses take you to all parts of London.
