Our family Loved staying at Calico House. We've visited twice. The kids were on first name terms with the concierge, with lots of mutual teasing about favourite football (soccer) teams. The apartments were comfortable and we loved having the kitchen for those evenings we just wanted to throw together a pasta rather than go out for dinner. Just a wonderful... More

Great apartment with everything you need, even a hamper of essentials: coffee, tea, milk, bread etc. Much nicer than many pricier hotels, the staff are friendly and helpful, showing us the location of the switch for the heated towel rail, would ever have found it on our own.

Stayed at the Calico House (Serviced Apartments) and by any means and measure, this is one of the best places I've ever had the pleasure of staying. To walk into an apartment, which is much nicer than most upscale hotels, and have a welcome pantry stock (bread, fruit, juice, milk, coffee, cereal, butter, etc.) was an absolute delight. To go...

Three underground stations are within walking distance, so very convenient for vacation in London. Upon our initial contact we were told that the amenities didn't include either free internet...
