About the property

1 bedroom + sofa bed, 1 bathroom, sleeps 2

Neal Street is perfectly located for all visitors to London and although we have hosted leading international artists and musicians we treat all guests as special regardless of where they come from!

This apartment was hand picked by Alastair Sawday and appeared in his 'Special Escapes' .

The living room leads up to a unique terrace where you can sit and enjoy a meal and glass of wine with lovely views over London rooftops.

Staying here is as perfect for a great city break as it is for a business trip. We have created a home from home romantic bijoux apartment which is a sanctuary from the hustle and bussel and excitement of the City outside.

Choose between self catering in our compact fully fitted kitchen or dining in one of the many top restaurants on the doorstep. You could not have a better location as you will literally fall out the door into where it is all happening and fall back into and oasis of calm to recuperate before your next adventure.

We take great pride in the fact that designed by the artist owner we have created a stylish, creative environment to nurture you during your stay.

Apart from being the cultural centre of London, Covent Garden has a wide array of lovely shops as well as excellent food shops. The famous Neal's Yard is just around the corner and of course Neal's Yard dairy for wonderful cheese as well as the famous Monmouth Street coffee shop.

Guests return regularly sending friends and family.

We hope you will also be inspired to visit our apartments in the South of France. See

Please read our five star reviews!

Hope to see you very soon!

Link to Map Location:

Please note that this apartment is in a residential building and is not suitable for guests who want to be in London to party. The roof terrace is fine for two or three people to sit and have a drink or a meal but not more than that. I am sorry but we can only rent to guests who have an understanding of this and are happy to be considerate of our neighbors. Thank you kindly, Mattie

About Mattie Silman

In 2002 I bought an apartment in the South of France where I had to start a rental business to pay for it - it was a very impulsive buy and I sold my house to pay for it.

I am an artist but having found I was quite successful at being a host with my own apartment many local friends asked me to manage their properties. I built up a portfolio in time Then a friend was selling his flat in Covent Garden and I jumped at the chance to buy this gorgeous place........

Mattie Silman purchased this apartment in 2009

Why Mattie Silman chose Camden & Covent Garden

Neal Street is the heart of Covent Garden running north from the famous market itself and within this enclave of interesting restaurants and shops. It is in the heart of culture and boutique shopping and yet once inside a peaceful haven of style and comfort. We have tried to think of everything you might want or need during your stay. We just installed a Nespresso coffee machine......

What makes this apartment unique

The roof terrace is an extra luxury for a flat in the centre of town.....

Walkable to all important tourist attractions including Trafalgar Square, Big Ben and the Houses of Parliament, The London Eye and the Southbank Centre and the Embankment, The Royal Opera House, Oxford Street, Piccadilly Circus, Soho and lots more.

A perfect place in the middle of everything.

  • 5 of 5

You'd think that a flat smack in the centre of Seven Dials would be a loud, loud place. You'd be wrong. Perhaps it was the effect of an acoustic shadow in the area but at night you can sleep (in the amazingly comfortable bed) in complete silence! We felt like the owners thought of everything: great bed, nice amenities, stylish bathroom with plenty of space, a roof deck (!!!), a fully functional kitchen, and last but not least an umbrella and shoe polishing kit. Really, kidding aside, it is absolute gem in the heart of the city that makes you wish that you had found the place sooner.

Perfect location

  • 5 of 5

The flat was in a great spot. You could walk down the street for about five minutes and be at the tube. You could also walk to many destinations that you may like to visit The flat was comfortable clean and just a great place to stay. Would definitely come back for another visit. The fresh flowers were an added bonus.

A great location.

  • 5 of 5

The property is well described on site. The location of the property is excellent right in the heart of a lovely part of Covent Garden. Despite being in the thick of activity the apartment was very quiet and we had no problems sleeping. The bed was extremely comfortable and the apartment well fitted out. Those considering the property should note that it is 3 flights up and has no lift. The apartment is small but very well laid out. The only issue was that the contact number we were given was incorrect which caused us some anguish until we arrived to find that there was someone to let us in and show us around.

I would have no hesitation in recommending the property given the fabulous location, the bed and being well appointed. However if you are not able to negotiate 3 fights of stairs or need plenty of room this would not be for you but for anyone else a great find.

Owner's Response: You will be hard pushed to find such a peaceful apartment so close to all the hustle and bustle and fun of this amazing location which has with the added benefit of our unique roof terrace? Just a few steps up - believe me it is well worth it. Look forward to welcoming you soon! Mattie

I came to London to do 'Walking Dickens' London' by Lee Jackson.

This apartment was in the perfect location and within walking distance to the start of all the tours.

It was great being so close to Soho with all the restaurants to choose from and the flat is in a great neighborhood.

The flat was very clean and comfortable and I would recommend it to anyone wanting to be in the heart of London.

Car: not necessary

Uniquely positioned in the ‘heart’ of Covent Garden and London’s main theatre and entertainment district, Neal St is only 2 minutes walk from Covent Garden market with its famous Victorian architecture and vibrant mix of craft stalls, boutique shops and street entertainment and of course the Royal Opera House. For Jazz fans Ronnie Scott’s Club and the Spice of Life pub are within strolling distance.

Covent Garden Underground Station (Piccadilly line direct from/to Heathrow Airport) is at the end of the road. There are so many restaurants (Carluccio’s, The Ivy to name two), famous theatres and bars close by that we can’t name them all here! In fact, there is so much to see on-foot, within your immediate vicinity, you won’t need to use the Underground at all if you choose not to!

Also within easy walking distance is Piccadilly Circus, the River Thames and its South Bank attractions, Trafalgar Square and 10 Downing Street. For a day trip further afield, Charing Cross Mainline Station.

Other Activities: Theater, restaurants, opera, concerts, historical
