Overview

Westminster & West End Studio Rental Photos and Description

Studio, Double bed ,bathroom, sleeps 2-3

A charming, spacious studio flat in a beautiful Victorian mansion block in the heart of London's West End.

Our flat is literally within walking distance of so many attractions.Our guests will find restaurants ,shopping,cafes, theatres,galleries...and of course books all within a few minutes walk.

This is the perfect location for those wishing to be right in the Heart of London, wishing to explore the entire West End.Its location is excellent for transport allowing direct links to other London landmarks.The flat is in a higly convient location for those coming via Eurostar, Heathrow,Gatwick or nearby Train Stations.

...fully equipped with all mod cons to allow our guests the choice to stay in and watch a film and prepare your own meals or to just relax and read a book.

The flat is very cozy and warm in the winter months and cool during the summer. There is double glazing.

The sleeping arrangement is a King Size bed(sleeps 2) and a comfortable high quality full height aero-bed..which is very comfortable!The air bed is suitable for an adult. We provide plenty of linens and towels.

The Flat: The flat is situated on the fourth floor of a period 1890's Victorian mansion block. The building is very secure allowing our guests an excellent location in the centre of London.

Our spacious studio flat has everything one should need to make their stay comfortable. The bed is a KIng(sleeps 2)and a very comfortable full height air bed for those travelling with a child or suitable for another adult.

The kitchen is fully equipped from a coffee maker to that ever necessary corkscrew! A full set of dinner plates,pot and pans are provided to make dining in a pleasure not a chore. However, with so many good affordable cafes and restaurants on the doorstep many of our guests choose to eat out.A microwave is also provided.

There is a washing machine/dryer.We also provide a steam iron and board.

The flat has lovely high ceilings giving a feeling of space.

It has excellent heating for those cold winter months and is cool during the summer.

There is a built in wardrobe and plenty of space to put suitcases out of sight.

There is a very fast Wi Fi connection for those wishing to keep up to date with their emails .A wide choice of TV channels are available.

A full length mirror/hairdryer is provided for those preparing for an evening out.

The Area: I work at the start of Charing Cross Road(other end) so I know this street very well.Our guests will have so many choices as to where to eat ,where to shop and what to see. The choice really is amazing! The flat is is a five minute walk into Covent Garden so perfect for those attending the numerous shows on offer in London.The original half price ticket booth which offers last minute daily deal on West End Shows is a 5 minute walk away. The best deals go on sale at 11am. The same is true for most opera and ballet productions. If you pop into either Box Office at the English National Opera or the Royal Opera House, they often have returned tickets avail for a better price.This is not always the case for very popular productions though.It's worth a trying.

I really can't say anything bad about this area as I know it so well.

There will probably be no need to take taxis as one can walk to most places from here!

Top Tips: During your stay...take a trip to the top floor of Centre Point...next door to Shaldon Mansions.Order a glass of wine and enjoy one of the best views over Central London.

A visit to the Pollocks Toy Museum in nearby Fitzrovia will be sure to delight all ages and the chance to pick up a trinket for those back home.

The nearby London Transport Museum in Covent Garden is a great day out.

For those wishing to visit the Tate Galleries we provide a card allowing free entry for two adults.

A visit to nearby Cecil Court PLEASE...I love this street.It's a perfect example of a Victorian shopping alley...just lovely to look at.The other Victorian covered arcade is the more upmarket Burlington Arcade...also worth a visit after seeing an exhibition at the RA.

We also provide a card allowing free entry into the Royal Academy for up to four people.

Our fave restaurants in the area are hands down...J Skeekey just off of St Martins Lane...and YMing in Soho!!! The area is seeing alot of development with new shops and restaurants opening what seems on a weekly basis. The area behind Shaldon Mansions used to be an old government building which has been replaced by an ultra modern development with shops and restaurants. The new branch of Jamie Oliver Union Jacks restaurant is a worth a visit. You'll also find a steak place,weekend British Food Market,Byron Hamburgers,Zilli etc.There are plans for more independent places to open up as well.The development is free of traffic so that's quite nice. There's a sweet little cafe that is open very late...I found this out when checking in a guest after midnight! They serve excellent food,coffee and fresh juices.The name is Apricot...and the decore does seem somewhat orange in shade,but it's a great place with really good snacks! Fancy dining where Oscar Wilde did...then may I suggest luch or dinner at Kettners. The cocktails are divine. The French House is nearby Soho was a second home to many artists and writers. You can sit where Francis Bacon did. The place is packed during the evenings,so it's always best to go at 3pmish.On nearby Greek St one will find the most delightful French Pattisserie ,Maison Bertaux.The cute liitle tables outside make the perfect place to have coffee or a pot of tea. The choice of freshly baked delights(made on the premises)is sweet heaven!

The flat will suit those wishing to visit for London on a short break or even one month.Please ask about our rates for longer stays.

PLEASE NOTE-WE DO OUR BEST TO KEEP OUR CALENDAR UP TO DATE.WE ALSO HAVE OTHER FLATS THAT COULD BE AVAILABLE.PLEASE CONTACT US FOR MORE DETAILS.

Great flat in a incredible location

  • 5 of 5
The flat is in a great location minutes from the West End and transport links on the Northern and Central Line.

Great for me and my partner we had two night in the flat for a weekend away to London and thought it was perfect for what we needed.

The flat has a lovely kitchen and and plenty of storage for our things.

And there was lots of great info packs in the flat for the local restaurants and shows which helped us out as we were new to London.

Next time we are down we will stay again

A Terrific Location - Short Stroll To Oxford, Transpotation (to everywhere) In The Heart Of Soho!

  • 4 of 5
My wife and I spent the month of September in this marvelous little flat, so conveniently located in Soho, that we used as our "home base" from which to explore London on this return visit to the city. The booking process with Charlene & James was very easy, questions were answered quickly and the owners had a representative meet us on arrival, providing 2 sets of keys, and took the time to explain the operation of items, including the washer/dryer, rubbish disposal, elevator, etc. The flat was neat & tidy, offering such items as laundry & dish washing & liquid hand soaps, toilet paper, dishes for two plus everything needed to prepare meals including pots, pans, spatulas, food storage containers, kettle, toaster (and the all important corkscrew & wine glasses!), a space-efficient kitchen with good-sized fridge, 4 burner gas cook top and oven, combination washer/dryer, collapsible clothes rack (for drying clothes while we were out exploring the sights), free wifi, television with large number of channels, loads of towels and bed linens, a book shelf loaded with up-to-date London guides (we had brought some of our own as well, but we purchased another local map on arrival for GBP 3.50 as we had worn our old one when we visited in 2012!) - basically everything we needed for a carefree vacation. The best part of this 5th floor flat though was the location, being so very central to buses, tube stations, grocery shops, retail shopping, restaurants, theatres, pubs (lots & lots of pubs) and more. Located on Charing Cross Rd, this flat is just a short stroll to Oxford Street, the British Museum, Trafalgar Square with the National Gallery and Portrait Gallery, Covent Garden, Neal's Yard, Little Venice, etc., etc. and as we "returned home" to the flat each afternoon/evening, we appreciated more and more the superior location of this vacation rental! The included telephone in the flat was really appreciated by us (WE NEVER BRING OUR CELL PHONE WHEN WE HOLIDAY) and 'allowed us to book theatre tickets, restaurant reservations as well as make FREE CALLS TO FAMILY BACK HOME IN CANADA. We estimated the living area of the flat to be about 350 square feet in size and with the hanging closet, shelving, bedside dresser, entrance foyer, etc., it provided us very comfortable accommodations for our stay (plus the open floor plan, 3 big windows and over-height ceilings provided a bright/airy interior environment) You can't go wrong with this London vacation rental!!!

Pefect-Sized, 5th Floor Studio Flat In A Terrific Location

  • of 5
This is a sweet little studio apartment, about 350 sq ft in size, located in an ideal location of Soho, just a short stroll away to restaurants, pubs, theatres, shopping, bus routes, tube station and more. Everything you need for preparing meals, laundering clothes and planning your day's exploration (free wifi and reference/travel books) are here. We stayed here for 23 days and, with each passing day, we appreciated this flat's location more and more! National Gallery & British Museum (to name a few) are only a couple minute's walk away and we soon had a number of "favourite" pubs to enjoy a pint in at day's end while planning our next adventure.

Fantastic and centralized flat with all necessities

  • 5 of 5
I stayed in this flat for 10 days in June/July 2014. It is very cozy and comfortable, and has everything you need. Including a full kitchen, albeit small. The building has a lot of character. The lift is as old as the building and pretty small, and takes a while to get used to. The street noise can be a bit much, but the flat is on the 5th floor (4th floor by European standards). I didn't mind any of these characteristics because I love a true cultural experience.
I was able to walk everywhere, except to long distance places. The best restaurants, coffee shops, clubs, bars and theatre shows are all within 10 minutes. There are several tube stations nearby, and Kings Cross is about 15-25 minute walk.
If traveling alone, or with two people, I would HIGHLY recommend this place. It's not a huge property and the bathroom is a bit tight, but that is typical for London and other urban places.
Once again, I would definitely stay here on my next trip.

GREAT TRIP-EXCELLENT LODGING

  • 5 of 5
The flat was exactly what we were looking for. It was clean and well taken care of. Helen met us, gave us a tour and keys. What a nice lady! I would recommend this to anyone travelling alone or a couple. Three people is a little cramped, but how much time do you spend in your flat when on vacation. We ate breakfasts in, and the grocery store was within walking distance. The flat is very centrally located. We could walk to Trafalgar Square and Buckingham Palace. China Town is very close. Great choice of restaurants for all tastes. There was a lot of construction out front, but even at night with the windows open the noise was not enough to ruin your sleep. I would stay here again any time and would recommend it to all family and friends. Thank you for a wonderful first time experience of London.!!!!

Map

Car: not necessary

Located on Charing Cross Road, next to both Soho and Covent Garden. The nearest underground station is Tottenham Court Road, a 2 minute walk away.

Our spacious, bright ,south facing studio is walking distance to the many tourist attractions of Leicester Square, Piccadilly Circus, theatres, Covent Garden, the National Portrait Gallery, Chinatown, shopping on Oxford Street, Regent Street and Bond Street.

The flat is opposite Foyles Books ,which is a must visit. You'll still find numerous bookshops on Charing Cross Road.84 CHX still exists/no longer a bookshop though

A vast choice of restaurants are in this area and Charing Cross Road has numerous coffee shops...The British Museum is a 5 minute walk and a further 10 minutes will get you into the heart of Bloomsbury or Fitzrovia.

For music lovers London's 'Tin Pan Alley' is on the next street. Denmark St is a treasure trove for those wishing to buy anything from a guitar pick to a violin

This is one of the best locations to stay in Central London.

WALK TO:

Covent Garden & Leicester Sq: 5 min

Oxford street: 4 min

Russel Sq & British Museum: 5-10 min

Trafalgar Square: 5 min

Buckingham Palace: 20 min

Soho: 3 min

TUBE STATIONS:

Leicester Square (4 min) - Piccadilly Line - Blue , Northern Line - Black

BUS ROUTES:

Route 14: Charring Cross, Trafalgar sq, Piccadilly, Green Park station Buckingham Palace, Hyde Park, Knightsbridge, Harrod's, Fulham

Route 19 : Angel, Piccadilly, Hyde Park, Knightsbridge, Sloane Square, Chelsea

Route 38 : Angel, Holborn, Piccadilly, Buckingham, Victoria Station

Picnic in a London Park....Our flat is within walking distance from some lovely public parks and gardens. The best one being St James which is about a 10 minute walk away from the flat. However, there are numerous Garden Squares in Bloomsbury that are lovely to relax in on a Summer or Spring day. There's a great hidden garden oasis just behind Shaldon Mansions. St Giles public garden is beautiful all year round and very quiet.This is a lovely place to relax in.

The nearby shopping on Oxford St and Charing Cross Road will be a real treat for people who love to shop until they drop. From high end shops to the two very large budget Primarks,one will find something to take back home with them. After a morning strolling aroud the West End a special treat of a full English Afternnoon Tea will sure to become a special memory of your time in London. Yes, it can be somewhat expensive but it should be something that should be tried if you have the time and budget. The Ritz is by far the best in London.The Savoy, The Dorchester,Browns, and Clariddge's are all expensive but worth it.The National Portrait Gallery,The Wallace Collection and the Langham are more affordable and equally as good. Fortnum and Mason on nearby Picacadilly is also worth it. Their food hall is amazing/and even if you don't have time for the full Afternoon Tea you could buy some tea to take back with you. The tin cans ar simply stunning in design.A great gift for those back home.You will find that a few of the hotels near the British Museum also offer Afternoon Tea/but the ones listed above are far better.One exception is Bea's of Bloomsbury which is well worth a visit.
