“Nice apartment”
Reviewed June 6, 2012

I rented the 2 bed ( 1 double and 1 sungle )room apartment of this property near Russell square.

Pros : good location , near tube , near supermarket and a shopping center, good neighbor hood.good Internet connection.the apartment is clean and the bed is ok .the kitchen is well equipped though it comes with microwave oven and need to read the instruction before use.

Cons : no air conditioning . No lift . Can only heck in at 3 pm and check out at 10 am though you can put the luggage in the apartment before and after check out .quite a lot street noise but it's ok for night time . Most of time no problem with the sleep . The double blanket is not a duvet and is not too comfortable.

Overall , it's a clean and nice apartment .

Perfect family trip in a clean, modern, central apartment in Bloomsbury. Corams field and the Brunswick shops nearby. Ideal.

A very good venue which is an excellent alternative to a hotel and super value. We booked a studio and got upgraded to a one bedroomed apartment which was quite luxurious. Excellent value for money and highly recommended!

I was supposed to be staying at the Blueprint Living Apartments at 66 Turnmill Street, but they moved me here due to a maintenance issue at Turnmill Street and I wasn't disappointed. The apartment was spotless and well-equipped, with enough amenities (though some milk would have been nice) for basic needs (coffee, tea, biscuits, shampoo, conditioner, lotion, etc.).
The welcome was very friendly and prompt, and check-out couldn't have been easier. You just leave your key in the room and go! Payment is all online, and my account was debited the following day.
Unfortunately there is no lift in this very old building, so either pack light or expect to haul your bags up a few floors.

Room Tip: You can accommodate five people in the two-bed apartments, even if they don't allow you to book...

One of these apartment places with no reception, where you have to wait for the "maid" to arrive to let you in (she lives somewhere close) then you get your own swipe card to get in.

The apartments are very clean, modern, and very nice. The bed perfect, the "kitchen" area well equipped and even Green Tea in the teasmaid!

Shower was a disaster - Why hotels dont check shower heads I have no idea, but this one (Appartment 5) was broken and squirting water right up to the ceiling (nr the light socket!)

I will stay here again and again! - Apartment 5, Double Room.

Sleep was perfect until 8am, when the construction behind the house started and then I was awoken by builders noise (Jan 2012) - just saying, I'm sure it will be over soon.

I stayed in a two-bed apartment (number 6) with two girlfriends for a long weekend in London recently. The apartment is beautifully presented and very spacious for a central London pad. The apartments are within a victorian Mansion house with original sash windows and cornicing. Rooms have been divided to create well proportioned living and sleeping areas - the only complaint might be that the bathroom was a little small.

For less than GPB250 per night between three or more this is a great deal for such a lovely place which is walkable to central London and three major tube stations.
