Great apartment in a great location

  • 5 of 5

A half block from lively Seven Dials and in the other direction Neals Yard Dairy, ten minute walk from the National Gallery, near most of the major theaters, museums [except the V & A], shops, restaurants yet in an enclave of guarded modern apartments above the street, secluded and tranquil. The price reasonable for London, especially compared to a hotel.

We stayed a one bedroom in the complex last year. A friend joining us we rented this two bedroom, two bath. The prices wasn't that much more but a lot more space. It was clean, tastefully decorated, in good repair, comfortable. The kitchen was fully stocked including essentials such as cooking oil, detergent, salt and pepper.

The owner, Steve W. answered all communications promptly, and was entirely helpful. Being out of town he delegated Rio, an assistant who was waiting for us in the flat. He buzzed us in, showed us around, and was available for questions throughout our stay. A light bulb blew out and he appeared immediately to replace it.

The larger bedroom faced the interior space and was quiet except for the occasional tenant talking too loudly or slamming doors. The smaller bedroom faced a busy street and was noisy especially with the window open. Ear plugs might be advised.

Our only suggestion is a guidebook to the appliances unfamiliar to we US citizens. Rio showed us how to use them but we'd just come off a long plane trip, and didn't retain the details.

If you are looking for a two bedroom two bath I would recommend it without reservation.

Great location!

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful time at the Shorts Garden apartment. It is as advertised and more. One side of the apartment is more quiet than the other side, but it really is clean, comfortable and nice. Friends from the city came to meet us here after work very easily. We all enjoyed it very much. I would recommend this to anyone who loves the buzz of the city!

So Close to Everything and So Comfortable!

  • 5 of 5

3 Shorts Gardens is right at Seven Dials! Walk to Covent Garden, Trafalgar Square, the British Museum - across the river to the Tate --- and it's close to Leicester Square tube, so the rest of London is at your doorstep.

The apartment is well laid out, full of convenient features, comfortable couches and beds - a well appointed kitchen. (The descriptions are accurate.) The owner and his managers are helpful and responsive and kind. Have stayed in a lot of places in London - this by far our favorite. We were two couples and a baby - had a wonderful visit. Highly recommended.

I had booked to stay here for my hen weekend in London but we did not actually end up staying in this apartment due to a problem with the gas, but the owner Steve contacted me and said there was another apartment available in Covent Garden at no extra cost - we were happy with that apartment and the stay was fine and everything we needed.

I did find it a little difficult to get in contact with the owner at the time of booking and made several attempts at phoning but with no answer. The only way I could make contact was via email. Having never booked on VRBO before I wanted to speak to the owner on the phone but this never happened. In the end everything turned out fine but I was a little worried.

The apartment we stayed in was fully kitted out with everything we needed for a girls city getaway. Rio was there to meet us as promised and let us drop our bags earlier than check in time.

Highly recommended!!!

  • 5 of 5

Our family has just returned from staying in this fantastic apartment. From the initial correspondence via email with Steven, to Rio (his business partner) meeting us the evening we arrived, everything ran very smoothly. We arrived late due to a transfer issue but Rio was there waiting and explained about everything in the apartment to us. It is in a brilliant location and very well appointed with everything you need, including supplies of washing powder etc.

The beds were comfy and 2 of our kids used the sofa bed in the lounge room as well.

The only thing I would point out is that being in such a central location in the heart of the theatre district, the street noise can be heard quite clearly late into the night, particularly on the weekend. If you are after a quiet suburban street,this may not be for you. If however, you are after a great apartment in an unbeatable location, with a great vibe and shops etc at your doorstep, this is for you. We would definitely stay when next in london and have already recommended to friends.

Perfect Holiday! Perfect Apartment!

  • 5 of 5

We had a lovely stay at Steve's apartment in London, located near the subway station. The area is great, really safe and quiet at night, with plenty of restaurants, bars and shops within walking distance. The apartment was very nice and clean, perfect for a family. Steve was a great host and provided us with very accurate information about almost anything we might need during our stay. I highly recommend this apartment!
