There is a PRIVATE ELEVATOR from the entrance lobby directly into the flat. The LOUNGE is a good size with nice pieces of antique furniture and decorative items. There is a wonderful 17th century drop leaf table for dining and an amazing antique lacquered Chinese chair. The open plan KITCHEN has all machines of the highest standard: hob, oven, microwave, dishwasher, fridge/freezer. The washer/dryer is in the bathroom cupboard. The MASTER BATHROOM is EN SUITE and has a shower over the tub with wash hand basin and loo–beautiful equipment. There is a gent’s loo with a sink and loo in the hall, giving a SECOND TOILET STATION for busy mornings. After last summer’s heat wave in London, the good news is the flat benefits from AIR CONDITIONING! Fantastic. There is a private phone, TV, and Internet for a visitor’s comfort. This property is outstanding, in a good location, and is absolutely newly refurbished. If you are in this budget and want to be in this outstanding location, this is flat is perfect. Nice.

Guestbook comments from the manager

As you know, I've booked apartments with you for several years and have never been disappointed. The reservation process was smooth and trouble free.



This property was particularly well located in Shepherd's Market at the end of a dead end street (with a parking garage at the end which was not noisy at all) in Mayfair, which is the museum, theatre and shopping heart of London. The unit was well furnished and decorated, and full of light during the day. The kitchen was efficient and well stocked, and the bathroom was spacious with plenty of counter space and the washer/dryer. I particularly appreciated the efficient heater - I turned off the heat while away during the day and at night - and when I turned it back on the apartment was warm within minutes. The area is very quiet at night.



There were numerous good restaurants within steps of the unit, and the three block walk to Green Park underground was safe and easily traversed within minutes.



I really enjoyed my stay and as usual, Christina and Ricardo were helpful and informative. LondonConnections is my first referral to friends interested in traveling to London, and I hope they take advantage of services you offer.

Gem in Mayfair

  • 5 of 5

How can we add to all of the positive comments in previous reviews? Simply said, we concur with all of the wonderful descriptions made about this flat. We have rented properties in France, The UK, and The United States over many, many years, and this Mayfair flat is the best of all of them. We spent 12 nights here in January, 2017 and are already trying to find a time when we can return. The location, as noted by everyone, is fabulous, with so many of the sights of London within short walking distance. Our favorite walk one day was across Green Park to Buckingham Palace, up the Mall to the Houses of Parliament and Westminster Abbey, Across the Thames to the London Eye, and then back to head up Whitehall to Trafalgar Square. We walked to Covent Garden and Soho several times and up to Oxford Street to shop at the Marks and Spencer Food Hall, where they have wonderful delicacies that you can simply heat up in the flat for delicious dinners. If you prefer eating out, there are wonderful restaurants within minutes of the flat. We ate breakfast in everyday, and lunches and dinner out about half of the time.

The rental process was flawless and the London agent, Cristina, was a delight to work with. We cannot say enough positive things about our stay at the Clarges flat. We will return and we hope soon!

Note: This information will at one time be dated, but if you have a chance to see "Kinky Boots" and "Half a Six Pence" you will not be disappointed. They are fabulous.

Beautiful flat in great location!

  • 5 of 5

We rented the 3rd floor flat for one week at the end of November. It was perfect for my husband and I! The flat is beautifully decorated and very comfortable for two people. it was clean and well kept! It is renovated with a modern kitchen and bathrooms and you can access the unit by stairs or by elevator which opens right into the unit. The kitchen had the essentials. (Not many spices in the kitchen, but we didn't cook much so it wasn't a problem). The unit has a washer/dryer which is a nice feature. There is also a hairdryer. The master bathroom floor is heated! Great perk!

The location of the flat is perfect. It is 1.5 blocks from the Green Park station which has two major tube lines. The Shepard's Market area 1 block away had lovely restaurants and there is a small food market across the street and larger ones within walking distance. Numerous coffee shops and other restaurants and cafes nearby.

The location is also perfect for walking to major sites in the area: Picadilly, Buckingham Palace, Hyde Park, Westminster (all within a 10-15 minute walk).

The customer service from this company was excellent. We loved the flat and would definitely recommend it to anyone!

Fabulous Mayfair Location - Beautiful Flat!

  • 5 of 5

Spacious flat in outstanding Mayfair neighborhood. Flat is in great working order and is well maintained. We found it to be exactly as described. The host walked us through everything at check-in and could not have been more helpful with dining suggestions and transportation information. Grocery store is right across the street. Green Park tube stop is 5 minute walk and very convenient. Central location makes it possible to walk to most of London top attractions. This flat is ideal for couples but would not be appropriate for small children as there were many antique breakables in the lounge.

Vacation visit to London in November

  • 5 of 5

Excellent trip. So much fun. Loved the Clarges flat. Perfect location. Everyplace is accessible. The flow of the flat was really nice and logical. Loved the elegant decorating in the living area. Also the elevator direct entry into the flat was awesome. This is overall the best flat I have stayed in during numerous trips to London.

Really lovely place

  • 5 of 5

First I will say that the location is fantastic. Mayfair is one of the nicest areas of London, and this building is incredibly convenient for so many activities. You can easily walk to places like Buckingham Palace and theatre in the West End, but there is also the Green Park tube station a few blocks away.

The apartment itself is really perfect. It’s attractively furnished, comfortable and well-appointed in areas like the kitchen and bathroom. The half-bathroom in the hall was a fantastic plus. The full bathroom was excellent and large, and the bed was very comfortable. And there are huge closets for hanging clothes, storing cases, etc.

I should say that the apartment we stayed in was not exactly the one listed on HomeAway, but one 2 floors above it. The apartment shown here is unit 1 at 19 Clarges Street. London Connection, the US-based firm that owns or manages these apartments offers units on the 1st, 2nd and 3rd floors of this building. Only the one on the first floor is listed on HomeAway, but they put us in the 3rd floor unit. From the photos on the London Connection website, it looks like all 3 units are identical in layout, but just have different furniture. I can attest that unit 3 is very nicely furnished.

There was a bit of confusion before we arrived, in a few areas. First was the point above about being switched to a different apartment than what we had booked on HomeAway, which I only noticed because it had a different number than the one shown. Then having paid the 1st deposit through HomeAway, we got a bill directly from London Connection for the balance, which we paid, but we were told by HomeAway that we still owed the balance, until I asked London Connection to clear that up. Then we got an email from HomeAway just before leaving with an earlier arrival date than we had booked. I don’t know which of these issues had to do with HomeAway or London Connection, but they did raise some concerns. I’m delighted to report that once we arrived in London we were met by the local London Connection representative at the apartment at the right time, she gave us a great overview of the workings of the place, and as noted above, the apartment was absolutely fantastic in every way. It would be helpful if these administrative things were handled a bit better, but overall we had a wonderful stay in a wonderful apartment.

A Very Enjoyable Week

  • 5 of 5

Our recent stay at the Clarges flat in Mayfair was most enjoyable. Everything about it was perfect. We lacked for nothing.

Upon arrival we were greeted by a representative of London Connection who made us welcome and comfortable and explained all about the unit.

The spotless flat was large and well appointed, the decor very nice, the bed comfortable, the kitchen well equipped and the sitting room very much used at the end of the day. Having two washrooms, an air conditioner and a lift were an added bonus. Location was great. We appreciated the proximity to the Underground, Shepherd Market and other restaurants, groceries, shopping, sights, banks, etc., etc., etc.

We wouldn’t hesitate staying here again should we return to London. This was our first time dealing with London Connection and we had a very good experience. Highly recommended!

A flat in Mayfair between Curzon Street and Piccadilly/Green Park has to be perfect! And this one bedroom flat is just that–wonderful! Berkeley Square is two blocks away. Green Park and on toBuckingham Palace is just down the Street. The fabulous shops of Mayfair are just out the door. A wonderful walk would be down Clarges St to Piccadilly, through Green Park to Buckingham Palace and on through St James’s Park to the Houses of Parliament, Big Ben, Westminster Abbey, and Westminster Pier on the River Thames. Some of the best shops in London are in the neighborhood of this flat: Old Bond, Philip Mould on Dover Street, tie shops on Maddox Street, clothing on Saville Row, and the most fabulous jewels on Albermale Street and New Bond Street. GREEN PARK TUBE STATION is just and the end of the Road–on the Piccadilly Line, the most central line in London. It could not be better located. This wonderful flat is located on the first floor of a period building at the top of Clarges Street, just off Charles St and has easy access to all the amenities around Berkeley Square: groceries, banking, fine art shops, and excellent clubs and restaurants. My favorite Middle Eastern snack bar is just around the corner, and when I am hungry for spicy food, that’s where I go. This is one of the best neighborhoods of London.
