Pimlico Apartment Rental Photos and Description

Apartment, 1 Bedroom + Convertible bed(s), 1 Bath, (Sleeps 2-3)

This beautiful period building is in a perfect location, and the views over London roof tops are amazing. Cambridge Circus for those traveling to London for theater, clubs, restaurants, and clubs is the center of the world. A stroll from Cambridge Circus down Shaftesbury Avenue to Piccadilly Circus is one of the most exciting walks in London; you will pass ten theaters with some of London's most exciting plays. Trafalgar Square is a ten-minute walk, and the Houses of Parliament and Westminster Abbey are an easy walk. The National Gallery and St. Martin-in-the-Fields are close by and will offer exhibitions and concerts unequalled in London. Six of every ten visitors choose to stay in this district of the city. The Palace Theater is also on Cambridge Circus. The one bedroom apartment has just been redone to a very comfortable standard. Because the apartment is located in a very active part of London, the windows have been covered with double glazing so the flat is quiet and comfortable. The living room has comfortable furnishings with a sofa bed which can be used by an additional visitor if occasionally required. There is excellent lighting and a flat screen TV. The double bedroom has a king size bed which can be changed into two twins, good storage. The bathroom has a shower over the tub, wash hand basin, and loo. The kitchen has all machines including washer/dryer, dishwasher, oven and hob, and fridge/freezer. This is an excellent accommodation and perfect for visiting London when considering location, budget, and standard. For two persons (third person on a sofa bed) it is perfect. The flat offers telephone and Internet service. The flat is on the 4th floor with a lift to the apartment. Very, very nice accommodation. If you are traveling in a large group, there is a two bedroom flat, another one bedroom flat in this same building. So, 8 people traveling together can stay in the same building, and that is a wonderful possibility for families traveling together. Very nice option.

5 night minimum for most reservations. 3 nights considered within 30 days of arrival.

Guestbook comments from the manager

We enjoyed our November stay so much that we booked another trip for March. The property was very clean and homey. We have spent alot of time in London and this location is excellent for anyone who is interested in attending the theatre and living in the theatre area. There are lots of restaurants and pubs nearby. Local transportation is right out your door.

We couldn't have asked for more

  • 5 of 5

I have rented vacation apartments in several different countries and cannot speak more highly of London Connection and our stay at the flat at Gloucester Mansions. The process of reserving and paying for the flat could not have been easier. Pre-arrival communications were excellent, and the pick up service at the airport was stress free. Ricardo met me at the flat, and gave me detailed information, but didn’t overstay his welcome, giving me the information I needed to feel at home without taking up too much time. He also emphasized that we could reach him at any time, for any issue. We didn’t need him because everything worked smoothly, but it was good to know that he was there.

As for the flat, we couldn’t have asked for anything more. The size was absolutely perfect for two and would have been fine for three. I cannot imagine a more perfect location. We were within minutes of most theaters, Trafalgar Square, Buckingham Palace, Regent Street, Piccadilly, and dozen of bookshop on Charing Cross Road. Both the Leicester Square and Tottenham Court tube stations were a couple of minutes away. And, as my mother pointed out, it seemed as though every bus in London stops at Cambridge Circus. Even when we had retired to the flat, tired of our adventures, we felt part of the city. We loved to watch the crowds outside, the pedicabs congregating, the Hare Krishnas parading, the long lines at the Palace Theatre for Harry Potter tickets. Some of our favorite memories are sitting in the flat, drinking wine and eating biscuits from Tesco, talking about life, and watching the world go by below. The area is lively well into the early hours of the morning, but thanks to the double glazed windows and the fans we used for white noise, we slept well every night. As an added bonus, the flat itself was impeccably clean, comfortable, and well appointed.

Enjoyed our stay and loved the location.

  • 5 of 5

The flat was very nice and clean. Since the flat is in the city center it can get a little noisy, but the location is fabulous. Personally, the noise didn't bother me. We simply shut most the windows at night and slept just fine.

Everyone was easy to work with and accommodating. I would definitely recommend this flat to my friends.

Wonderful flat

  • 5 of 5

The location, service and amenities of this apartment were exactly what we needed for our family of three. We stayed for a week in apartment #7 and could not have been more pleased with our experience. Ricardo met us outside and gave us a wonderful introduction to the area and the apartment. It is surrounded by theaters, wonderful restaurants, tube stops, grocery stores and a lot of energy! The kitchen is well stocked and the apartment is updated. The master bed was comfortable and the sofa bed was sufficient for our 11 year old daughter. The doubled paned windows kept the noise from the busy street below to a minimum. We will absolutely plan to stay here in the future, and have recommended it to our friends and family.

Our 4th Time Booking with London Connection!

  • 5 of 5

We are back now from our fabulous holiday to France and England and of course I wanted to let you know how much we enjoyed the flat!! It was just so perfect for us, and of the four times we have rented flats from London Connection over the years, this one is our favorite so far! Everything about it, the location in central London, the layout/interior of the flat, the fabulous kitchen, modern bathroom, and the large living and bedroom spaces - all were perfect! After a week of living in hotels in Normandy, it was so nice to unpack everything into the spacious closet and not have look at our suitcases again until it was time to leave the flat a week later :) We saw six theatre shows in four days, so the flat's ideal location in the Theatre District was perfect - we walked everywhere, and no walk was farther than 10-15 minutes. We were blessed with perfect weather, too, so that made the whole stay even more lovely. We splurged on dinner twice at The Ivy (at the dining bar --it was lovely!) and even caught a daytrip up to Liverpool. We will definitely use London Connections again the next time we visit London.

Nice enough flat, but lift didn't work all week.

  • 2 of 5

We stayed in this flat for a week in February. The location is excellent, an easy walk to Piccadilly, Trafalgar Square, Leicester Square discount theatre tickets booth, West End, Chinatown, etc. The flat itself was comfortable for the two of us.

The only problem was that it was on the 4th floor, equivalent to the 5th floor in the US, and the lift didn't work the whole time we were there.

When we arrived on Friday afternoon, the manager put the luggage in the lift and asked if we could walk up, since he was not sure the lift was operating properly. He thought it would be repaired in the next day or two. On Monday, he said that it required parts which they did not have on the weekend. When it was not fixed by Tuesday, I was sure it would not be fixed for our entire stay, and I e-mailed Mr. Moore at the home office in Utah. I was told that we had been given the choice of moving, which we had not. By that point, it was no longer worth moving

We are in our 60s and both have health problems, and those 82 steps up and down were not easy. It affected our activities and was a major inconvenience.

I had turned down several other less expensive flats on 1st or 2nd floors of buildings with no lifts. After our return to the US, I called and e-mailed Mr. Moore in Utah, requesting a partial refund. Instead we were given a credit for a future stay, which will very likely be worthless for us.

Noisy flat

  • 2 of 5

Just returned from our stay and felt I needed to add a comment to the others to be sure potential guests are prepared. I wish I had paid closer attention to the mention of street noise because I had a great deal of difficulty sleeping here even with earplugs. This is indeed a nice flat in an ideal location for walking and visiting the city but it overlooks an eight-way intersection and the honking, sirens, and especially the motorcycle noise continues throughout the night. I wish I had picked a flat on a quieter side street. I agree with the other reviewers about hiring the driver from the airport. David was friendly and helpful and it was money well spent on the morning of my groggy arrival. I would not have enjoyed trying to find this place from the underground station on my own that first morning. I also appreciated that he coordinated my arrival at the flat with the manager, Ricardo, who met us there and got me settled in nicely. As I said, everything was as advertised - including the street noise - but because it was much more of a problem for me than I have experienced in other big city stays, I wanted to alert other visitors.
