“Great Location!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 8, 2013 for a stay in April 2013
1
person found this review helpful

Our family travelled from the US in April to visit our daughter who is studying at the University of Westminster. There were 6 of us staying in the flat (two adults, three teens and a 10 year old.) We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and found the flat to be perfect for our needs. The location is perfect! Close to everything yet tucked away in a safe and quiet area. We particularly liked the proximity to the Holborn tube line with access to both the Central and Picadilly lines. The accomodations worked well for us (especially having two bathrooms) and the kitchen was well equipped and very functional. The only suggestion we would have is to perhaps add a little more seating in the first floor reception area (a couple small cushioned chairs would do). Thanks again for a wonderful stay and we will definitely recommend this flat to friends and family.

“Superbly located, well-equipped and highly recommended”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 10, 2013 for a stay in April 2013

We've just returned from a week long stay at Bloomsbury Apartment and only have good things to say about it. Debbie and Simon were responsive to email queries before we arrived and met us on time when we did. With two adults and three children (ages 14, 12 and 8) in our family party we never felt crowded and the children even took advantage of Barclays Bike Hire station around the corner. The free Wifi enabled us to keep up-to-date with work requirements and the range of TV programmes satisfied the children when needed. The apartment was clean and well-equipped for our needs - including supplies for the small dishwasher and washing machine. With several supermarkets a short walk away, taking advantage of the self-catering aspect of Bloomsbury Apartment was easy - although there is a wide choice of pubs and eateries in the immediate area. The best part was the ease of access into central London, either by tube, bus or walking (which we did alot!) Leaving London was also no problem with the Piccadilly line running right through close-by Holborn and onto Heathrow. We would definitely stay here again and recommend the property to friends visiting London, looking for a reasonable home away from home.

“Highly recommended City apartment”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 3, 2013 for a stay in February 2013

Our family (two adults and twins of 17) spent a February week in this apartment. There are many good things to say: excellent location near buses and Underground, very safe and quiet area, walking distance to Soho, clean and cosy apartment with an interesting history, two bathrooms and a fully equipped kitchen, friendly and helpful hosts. To sum up: Highly Recommended and we will definitely return!

“Quiet, modern and centrally located”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 19, 2013 for a stay in February 2013

We spent four days in this apartment with four adults (two couples) and two small children (ages 3 and 1). That's pushing the apartment's limits in terms of capacity, but we enjoyed our stay thoroughly - the location and situation of the apartment made it a perfect base for seeing London, and it's a great neighbourhood ('The Old Nick' pub at the entrance is a classic English watering hole, and try Kimchee restaurant down the block if you like Korean food!). Debbie and Simon were very communicative and helpful, the courtyard arrangement makes the apartment feel very secure (and very quiet), and all amenities were as advertised - we had no complaints at all! Can highly recommend!

“Home abroad”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 17, 2013 for a stay in February 2013

Beautiful apartment,equipped with every possible item to make you feel at home (fully equipped kitchen, hair dryer, iron, english plug adaptator, ...). Underground maps, books on London, tips on the area, you will find everything in this apartment! Simon and Debbie were very nice, even though we arrived at 1 am. Furthermore it is only 5 minutes walk away from Holborn underground station, two local Sainsbury's are very close. We really loved it there.

“Perfect London home away from home!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 3, 2013 for a stay in December 2012

We stayed here with our two young children (4 and 1) for five days. We only have good things to say about it! First of all the location is just perfect. Walking distance to Covent Garden and lots of amenities within 5/10 minutes walk or less including supermarket, restaurants, cafes and one of the main underground stations where you can get to anywhere in London easily. The apartment really does feel like a home away from home, it's very cosy, comfortable and has everything you could need. Plenty of room for the four of us and it feels so light and spacious with the high ceilings. Even though it is in the heart of London it's so quiet because its set off the road within a secure courtyard. We never heard any traffic noise or other noise the whole time we were there. Debbie and Simon were on hand to answer any questions and had plenty of leaflets and maps in the apartment for info. We loved our trip and want to go back to London soon, we will not hesitate to book this apartment again.

“Excellent location, fantastic appartment”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 19, 2012 for a stay in August 2012

This is a lovely flat based in right in the very heart of London. The location is exceptional with easy access and walking distance to the West End, Covent Garden Soho and more or less the best places to go in London. In fact London's best theatres, museums and restaurants are right on your doorstep. It is a beautiful, light and spacious flat, fully equipped and with a great atmosphere. We had a fantastic time staying there.
Furthermore the owners Simon and Debbie are always on hand to help make your stay as enjoyable as possible.
