"Clean, comfortable, lots of space and conveniently located."
A warm welcome as the owners of the flat were there to greet us and show us around. The kitchen was well equipped and tea, coffee and milk were provided as well as a welcoming fruit tray and a small c… More

"Well-equipped flat in an excellent location!"
I could not have been more pleased with my recent stay at the Bloomsbury Apartment. The owners were professional, efficient, and kind in their communications with me as we settled the booking details. They were also available throughout the week to settle any issues we had. The flat itself is lovely - two bedrooms and a bath with high-quality appliances and fixtures. The best part about the flat, though, is the location. It's in a quiet area, equidistant from King's Cross/St Pancras and Russell Square Underground stations. It's also within easy walking distance of the West End theatres and Trafalgar Square. You're not going to find a better location for exploring the capital. I'd highly recommend this flat rental!

"Lovely, cosy apartment in convenient location."
Very comfortable and well-equipped apartment, with easy access to public transport, cafes and supermarket. Green spaces nearby for children to play. Apartment is on two levels with bedrooms upstairs. It all worked well for our family with children (two and eight years), though we were very conscious of the pale cream carpet under the dining table. Stephanie was a great host: very kind, and welcoming and provided us with useful information, as well as having a few basics already in the kitchen for us.

"The perfect London flat"
The flat was perfectly located near shopping, tube, and British Museum. It was spacious and beautifully appointed, with washing machine, dishwasher, etc. building had a lift. Next to St George's Park, a cemetery with benches and age-old elms. Only blocks from half a dozen excellent pubs, two tube stations. Couldn't have been better!

"Excellent apartment at a perfect location!"
We mainly chose this apartment because of its location close to the Eurostar terminal. And indeed, this was extremely handy. What we didn't realise was the fact that the apartment is so close to nearly every place we like to visit! You can easily walk to Covent Garden, Soho, the Thames, Fitzrovia, Marylebone, Regents Park, ... and this through a very safe and nice area.
Although we were in London in the coldest week of the season, with snow and ice, the apartment was really warm and cosy to come home to after our long walks in the city.
It felt like coming home from day 1! The apartment is large, very clean and very comfortable. The kitchen is very well equipped. The bathroom is great too. We slept wonderfully well, as it is totally quiet at night.
You don't get the feeling that this is an apartment that is simply furnished to rent but everything is of high quality.
And above all this, the owners are very friendly and helpfull. From the first contacts we had a positive and "safe" feeling. Every email was imediately and accurately answered. On our next trip to London we will definitely stay again in this apartment!

"Great home base for exploring London"
We were extremely satisfied with the Bloomsbury apartment during our 9 day stay in late June 2012 for our family vacation (with 2 children aged 12 and 9). The apartment is very conveniently located within a 5 minute walk of the Russell Square tube station on the Picadilly line, and also about a 10 minute walk to the British Museum and the British Rail stations at Kings Cross and St. Pancras. Also near a very nice grocery store and numerous restaurants/pubs. Having amenities like a fully functional kitchen with dish washer, the ability to wash clothes, and wi-fi was great. The owners Stephanie and Nigel were very honest and straight forward - a pleasure to deal with. Highly recommended!

"Fantastic location, very comfortable, clean & modern apartment."
This apartment is under 10 mins walk from Kings Cross & Russell Square Tube station.
A short walk to Brunswick centre and it's shops. The owner was very friendly and greeted us upon arrival. The apartment was clean, airy & comfortable. The kitchen was blessed with a dishwasher ! :-) Good sized TV, with a selection of DVD's , books & information pack.
The apartment block was very secure & had a lift, which was very handy after a hard days sightseeing! Very clean & modern bathroom, with a large bath, great to soak in. I recommend a meal/drink at the Harrison pub, just two mins walk from the apartment. Very nice food, fantastic ales, plus huge selection of bottled beers.
