Overview

Farringdon Apartment Rental Photos and Description

1.5 bedroom, 1 bathroom, sleep 2 - 5 persons. 2 double beds and 1 single bed.

Nicely designed third floor apartment with high ceilings, located in a beautiful former 1800's Bank Building from the Victorian era, overlooking a park and the historical Smithfield Market. The apartment has a bright private living room with lots of light, a kitchen area, a double bedroom and a bathroom with shower.

The building has a lift directly to the apartment, making it much easier for families with children, luggage or those with limited mobility (3 steps from the street level).

The location also boasts the fine dining and cafe culture of Smithfield and Clerkenwell on its doorstep with traditional pubs, Michelin-starred restaurants, many cafes and great options for family or late night dining. It is a perfect location for enjoying London, with all the famous landmarks very nearby. Museum of London and the original Roman city walls are 4 minutes walk away, St. Pauls Cathedral just 600 meters. A short walk further brings you across the Millenium footbridge over the Thames to the Tate Modern Museum and attractions near London Bridge and Tower Bridge.

For transport, it is 3 minute walk to both Barbican (180 m) and Farringdon Underground Stations (3 min), very close to St Paul's station and has direct links to Luton, Gatwick, Stansted and Heathrow airports.

Culture and Attractions: You will enjoy the many cultural attractions nearby, including Barbican Center for Theatre, Art and Dance - Europe's largest multi-arts venue and home to the London Symphony Orchestra is a 3 minute walk (300 meters); British Museum, Portrait Gallery, and many other venues within minutes. The location is ideal for quick access to the trendy Hoxton and Shoreditch areas [we live there - great area on weekends - ask us for the best new spots to go out]

Great apartment

  • 5 of 5

Truly very clean, bright and well organized! Rolf and Mok could not have been more helpful. They even helped us with ordering a taxi service to pick us up since our flight arrived so late. The apartment is very close to at least 3 Underground stations and the area is very quaint with many restaurants and coffee shops. It is also very close to St Paul's Cathedral (as advertised). I stayed there with my two teen children and felt very safe in the area. The Smithfield market was busy the night we arrived but we did not hear much once the windows were closed. I would certainly stay here again and would recommend it to a friend.

Excellent location for touring London.

  • 5 of 5

This apartment was very clean and exactly as described. Two tube stops nearby made for easy transportation around the city. We had two adults and one grown child. Size of the apartment was perfect for us. With a grocery nearby we made use of the kitchen for breakfast and late night snacks. The Smithfield market is outside the apartment and is busy and noisy during the week late at night but fine on the weekend. If you are a light sleeper you will probably need earplugs but not on the weekends. The pub below is quiet after 10. Having a washing machine was great. There are a variety of restaurants nearby. The owner was really a concierge at heart as he left us with a list of all the nearby attractions, directions to the grocery, restaurants and their fare, and tube stops, etc.. Just really helpful. And yes, it really is only a 5-minute walk to St. Paul's Cathedral. We had a fantastic time in London seeing all the sights.

Fijn en zeer goed gelegen appartement

  • 5 of 5

Het appartement is centraal gelegen en toch rustig om na een drukke dag in de stad lekker uit te rusten. Er is wat beweging tijdens de nacht rond de markt die rechtover het gebouw ligt, maar de overlast hiervan is beperkt. Het appartement is zeer netjes en goed onderhouden. Wij hebben de eigenaars niet ontmoet, maar alle communicatie is zeer vlot verlopen en alles was in orde.

Voor ons Belgen is Londen een dure stad. Qua sightseeing is er echter een ruim aanbod aan gratis musea e.d. Goed voorbereid kan je dus zeker met relatief weinig geld veel leuke dingen ontdekken. Met de Oyster card kan je ook grenzeloos gebruik maken van het openbaar vervoer tegen een aanvaardbare prijs. Ruil je Oystercard ook in aan het einde van je verblijf (aan een automaat) en je krijgt je waarborg en het niet verbruikte krediet terugbetaald.

Wij gingen met de wagen naar Londen. Parkeren in het weekend kan gewoon gratis langs de straten in de buurt. Op weekdagen moet je rekening houden met een kost van 36 euro per dag in de tegenover het appartement gelegen ondergrondse garage.

Pretty little apartment in an excellent location

  • 5 of 5

You will not regret staying at this lovely little apartment in a great location. My husband and I brought our two near-grown kids, and they were very comfortable on the sofa beds in the living room. The kitchen is well-equipped for making your own breakfasts, etc. The bath is lovely and spacious, too. And we appreciated the convenient location, minutes away from St. Paul's and close to two tube stops. Highly recommended.

Great stay in London

  • 5 of 5

Last October I spent, with my family, 3 days in this apartment. We had a very pleasant stay there. It is quite small but very nice, clean and well-maintained. We appreciated its location; very next to the Saint Paul Cathedral and to the center of the city, few minutes walk away from 2 metro stations and bus stops. In the neighborhood there are a lots of restaurants and pubs. The owners Mok and Rolf were very gentle and helpful in our stay. We never met them but they provided us all the assistance that we had need by phone or message. We'd strongly recommend this property.
