Notes:
Bloomsbury is an area of the London Borough of Camden, in central London, between Euston Road and Holborn, developed by the Russell family in the 17th and 18th centuries into a fashionable residential area. It is notable for its array of garden squares, literary connections (exemplified by the Bloomsbury Group), and numerous cultural, educational and health-care institutions. Bloomsbury was not the first area of London to have acquired a formal square, Bloomsbury Square laid out in 1660 by Thomas Wriothesley, 4th Earl of Southampton, as Southampton Square was the first square to be named as such.

Clean, pleasant, handy.

  • 4 of 5

Nice area. We walked to Covent Garden, St Paul's Cathedral etc, but buses depart very regularly from around the corner, and the tube is about 10 to 15 minutes walk. We made contact and were greeted easily. The room was clean and reasonably well equipped but we ate lunch and dinner out so can't comment on the kitchen equipment.

Beautiful Flat

  • 5 of 5

Sorry for such a delay in writing this review - we stayed in this property in early April 2017. Wonderful place, quiet, safe neighborhood. We had actually originally booked another flat through HomeAway but it fell through last minute and Karen was able to help us find another place to stay - 2 other places, actually. We would definitely recommend Heritage Apartments - they are wonderful and their places are spectacular.

Great place, great location.

  • 4 of 5

Beautiful apartment, very well equipped. Quiet. Well located. The only thing we didn't appreciate is when we asked to be let in a few hours early since our flight arrived early in the morning and we had no where to store our bags, we were told there would be a fee of 100 pounds, a ridiculous fee considering the place had been vacated the previous day. Then when we arrived at the agreed upon time, which was 2 p.m. we waited half an hour in front with our suitcases, on the sidewalk, not very considerate! Otherwise would recommend the place, lovely.

Owner's Response: Our terms and conditions state that we charge a fee for early check in or late check out. This is due to the fact that we have to rearrange our cleaning and meeting staff and re schedule our planning. We always offer two alternatives for luggage storage and we did for this guest too. They are also cafes round the corner should guests arrive early so no need to wait on the sidewalk. We are delighted like all our guests they enjoyed our gorgeous flat. We do hope we can welcome them back really soon.

Centrally located flat in very nice neighborhood

  • 5 of 5

We can't say enough about our wonderful stay in this very comfortable, clean and well appointed flat. We were so happy to not be in a hotel, but in this very spacious two bedroom with a very nice living area to stretch out!

We really enjoyed being 5-6 blocks from the Russel Square tube station, 4-5 blocks from a shopping area and blocks from restaurants including our new favorite, Cio Bella!

The owner was very nice, responsive and delivered a wonderful place that matches the photos exactly! Thank you for allowing us to enjoy your flat, we will definitely stay again when we return to London.

Wonderful apartment with attention to detail.

  • 5 of 5

Wonderful apartment! Very clean, comfortable and with many amenities. Short walk to tube and close to bus lines. Variety of pubs and restaurants close by. Downfall is no lift for those who might have trouble going up flights of stairs. It was not a problem for us. Quiet neighborhood. Highly recommend.

My family of 4 (2 adults and 2 tween kids) stayed here for a week. It was the perfect home base for exploring London. Management was top notch, space was clean and nicely furnished. We would readily stay again and enjoyed our experience with Heritage Apartment Rentals.

Despite its cultural, historic and scientific bragging rights, Bloomsbury has a well-healed yet understated atmosphere. The former home of literary greats such as Virginia Woolf and Charles Dickens, today it is dominated by the massive British Museum. Bloomsbury is an unspoilt corner of London, feeling more like a village. Bloomsbury is famous for its beautiful Georgian squares, world class universities, colleges and hospitals.

Bloomsbury is an often undervalued and overlooked oasis of calm in central London. The area is within the borough of Camden, one of London’s most diverse and eclectic boroughs. Basing yourself here for a holiday in London, you will be surrounded by action-packed places such as the West End, Soho, Covent Garden and the newly redeveloped King’s Cross area

Russell Square and Bloomsbury, the two large garden squares were set out and developed in the 17th century by the Russell family. Today these are flanked by stunning examples of Victorian architecture and sit either side of the fabulous British Museum, just a 10 minute walk from the apartment. Close to the apartment there are attractions such as the Charles Dickens museum (a 2 minute walk) and The Foundling Museum.

A brief 10 minute walk from the apartment brings you to the Brunswick Centre, a local hub for shopping dining and entertainment. You can find great shops such as French Connection and Joy along side cafes, a Waitrose supermarket and restaurants, including Carluccios, Itsu and giraffe. Entertainment comes in the form of the Curzon Cinema showing art house classics, foreign films and the latest Hollywood blockbusters.

A 20 minute walk or 10 minute bus ride takes you to the heart of one of London’s most famous tourist areas, Covent Garden. Find museums, the Royal Opera House, numerous theatres and the Piazza as well as a myriad of small streets to explore. You can find boutique fashion, high end designers and restaurants from around the world. Covent Garden is also on the edge of London’s theatre district, the West End. See a play, opera or musical with a pre or post theatre meal in the world’s most prominent theatre district.

Designed around Russell Square and the iconic British Museum, Bloomsbury is known for its plethora of world class institutions, such as University College London, The British Medical association and Great Ormond Street Hospital.

The family friendly Bloomsbury holiday apartment is 10 minutes walk from Chancery Lane tube station. Nearby stations also include Russell Square and Farringdon stations. Getting around London is easy with quick access to the Piccadilly and Central Lines. As Euston, Kings Cross and St Pancras International (London’s Eurostar terminus) train stations are based on the northern borders of this district, travelling to the rest of the UK and Europe is easy too!
