Further details indoors
Our apartments lie on the western edge of Covent Garden on St Martin's Lane, about 300m north of Trafalgar Square. They are a few minutes' walk from the National Gallery & National Portrait Gallery, London's Theatreland, Covent Garden, China Town and shopping in the West End.
Our historic building, has been completely re-modelled internally to provide a spacious one-bedroom flat (sleeps up to five), with private patio on the 1st floor; a further spacious one- bedroom flat (sleeps up to five) on the 2nd floor and a large luxury two-bedroom duplex apartment on the 3rd and 4th floors (sleeps up to 7).
Covent Garden lies in the heart of Central London and was originally home to London's fruit and vegetable market. It is now the hub of London's Theatreland and other important entertainment venues, the most important of which is the imposing Royal Opera House in Drury Lane. Most venues lie within five to ten minutes' walk of our apartments.
Covent Garden houses the London Transport Museum and most of London's tourist attractions - including the London Eye - lie within easy travelling distance.
A wealth of street entertainment can be found in the famous Piazza. The former Market Building now contains an exotic mix of small shops, cafés and bars as well as the famous Apple Market stalls selling antiques, jewellery, clothing and gifts. Whilst King Street now contains the largest 'Apple' computer store, by contrast, Neal Street, Neal's Yard and Seven Dials and many of the neighbouring streets are littered with independent retailers selling a large selection of interesting and unusual items.
The area contains a very large number of old pubs as well as a wide variety of restaurants, bars and cafés to suit every taste. There are also several supermarkets for those who wish to cater for themselves.
Our apartments all lie within a few minutes' walk of either Covent Garden (Piccadilly Line) and / or Leicester Square (Northern Line) Underground Stations as well as many public bus routes.

There is a tescos just around the corner or numerous restaurants if you prefer to eat out .Apartments are well appointed ,clean and booking process was very smooth.Thoroughly recommended and hope to use again in the future .
“Exceeded all expectations”
We had 9 nights at the Trafalgar Square apartment over the New Year, and were looking for central family accommodation. The flat was fantastic; enormous, warm, quiet, secure and incredibly central. We loved every minute of our stay,
“London Living it doesn' get much better than this”
This visit is our second September stay in this apartmrnt. We like it so well after two stays we will likely re visit next year in September. The flat is completely up to date in all aspects and is verey well maintained. The cleaning and maintainence people are very responsive to the visitors requets and needs. Best aspects are the roof terrace and the overall cleanliness of the unit. Only one thing needs attention - the matress needs replacing and when I mentioned this to the manager she agreed to do this. Why we like this place so much however is the location as it is in the middle of the action and one can walk to shops,theaters and restaurants. The Cote Brasserie next door is a plus. Totally reccommended - good job Sarah
“Great location nicely fitted out and a unique alfresco room.”
Our second stay with this operator. They provide high quality facilities in unique locations. Daily maid service is a nice treat. Free Wi-Fi and all the essentials to make you feel like it is "Your" Apartment
“Terrific Value and Location”
My wife and I have rented easily more than a dozen apartments (and countless hotel rooms) in Europe and the United States. This apartment is among the best overall that we have used. First of all the location is outstanding. if you are in London to visit the principle tourist attractions it is perfect. One can easily spend days walking to major sights. For longer journeys there are two tube stations within easy walking distance - even with luggage (we did it with two weeks' luggage for 5, no problem). One of them is a direct line to Heathrow (we used it). Trafalgar Square, within the advertised 300 meters, is a transportation hub including stops for all hop-on/hop-off bus lines. The location is also desirable as it allows the guest to return to the unit during the day to rest for a moment without having to miss any significant sightseeing time. Consider that before booking an out-of-the-way location that requires carrying a day's worth of contingencies and takes you out of the game upon return. The neighborhood is upscale, tasteful, lively, safe and crammed with too many pubs, restaurants and shops to mention. There are no hooligan magnets nearby. Vehicle traffic is restricted in some areas. The security for the unit was reassuring with two strong, modern locked doors required to pass through including both an entry code and a solid key lock. The property is up a short flight of (locked) stairs which not only enhances security but decreases noise (which was virtually eliminated via modern insulated windows), provides privacy and a good view for people watching in the street below. There is a spare set of keys locked away by combination in the event your party separates or the first set goes missing. Knowing that there was a spare set of keys caused me to not lose the first set. Had there been only one set I would of course have subconsciously contrived to lose them. The apartment is a recent (2012?) remodel - meaning everything about it is modern. We have endured some archaic conditions in other units, but not here. There are plenty of outlets, for instance (all English sockets, buy a couple of cheap converters for US electronic devices). The open floor plan is quite nice for togetherness and there is a second TV in the closed bedroom for naps and privacy. Internet was easy and strong. We were a family of 5 with children aged 12, 10 and 6. They fit comfortably on the pull-out sofa and the rollaway cot. There is a Tesco Supermarket within a couple of blocks of safe, well-lit walking which had generous hours offering comprehensive groceries and a large selection of fairly decent pre-prepared food. The apartment kitchen was adequate to prepare meals. The appliances are modern and worked properly. There is a washer/dryer and dishwasher. The bathroom had good pressure and plenty of hot water. I would like to specifically mention and thank Sarah S. with HB S&V for her help in overcoming a last-minute difficulty of my own making. The management was accessible by phone and with offices a short tube ride away. Please observe that as indicated in the property details the unit is accessible only by stairs. We searched on-line for weeks and weeks before deciding on this apartment. The next time we go to London I'm not even opening the internet - except to book this apartment. Feel free to email me at firstname.lastname@example.org if you have any questions. I tend to be skeptical but this unit is what it says it is. I unreservedly recommend this unit.
“Great Flat-Great Location - Great Time- Great Service”
This was a terrific property as the location was right in the middle of tourist London. The flat was well maintained and very comfortable for two. Theaters, galleries,tourist attractions were all within walking distance. Likewise there were two supermarkets and a chemist within a five minute walk. Many good restaurants were nearby - of particular note was Cote-the brasserie next door (50-51 St Martins Lane) which is a must try. Also three tube stations within a five minute stroll. Of particular note was the service we received form the rental agent Sara who did her best to make our holiday the best it could be. In all a resounding 5 star sucess. Bob and Nancy
“Excellent Location, but Lacks Some Key Elements of Comfort”
The apartment location, near Leicester Square, is perfect for sightseeing. Buses & the Underground are very close & many sites are easily within walking distance. Lots of restaurants, shops & theaters are literally right outside the front door. The apartment is modern, clean & minimally furnished/decorated. The bedroom overlooks the street, but is perfectly quiet when the windows are shut. However, there are 2 very bright lights on the outside of the building which are intended to illuminate the building's exterior, but they also light up the inside of the bedroom all night long. The mini blinds don't help enough to minimize the lights. Also, inside the apartment hallway leading to the bedroom, there are extremely bright lights which go on & off via a sensor & these can't be manually controlled. If you get up during the night, it's quite startling to encounter these lights which shine directly into the bedroom. The apartment comes with a daily cleaning service, Monday through Friday from 10am-12pm. Prior to arrival, we requested to have the service less frequently so that we could sleep in if we wanted to & not worry about being in their way. Our request was denied. However, the cleaning crew was very friendly & did a great job. Our other request for additional pillows was granted. It's nice to have the terrace available. It's very quiet & located in the back of the building, nestled between other buildings. Basic amenities in the apartment are limited: Only 1 bath towel per person was provided, no tissues or paper towels, no detergent for the washer. Overall, the apartment's best feature is its location. Just be sure to bring eye masks.
