Getting around

The nearest tube (metro or subway) stations are Russell Square (Piccadilly line which runs direct to Heathrow Airport) and Chancery Lane (Central line). There are several bus routes running from the bus stop at the end of John Street. St Pancras International Station and Kings Cross Station are a 15-20 minute walk away or a short bus (routes 17, 45 or 46 from Grays Inn Road) or taxi ride. As it is only one stop on the tube, it is generally quicker to walk than take the tube.

Interaction with guest

I will send you directions to the apartment when you book. Please let me know at which of London's five airports or which station you arrive at. If you arrive during office hours, either I or one of my team will be in the building to meet you, show you upstairs to the apartment, hand over two sets of keys and answer any questions you might have. I have a key safe box if you arrive at the weekend or after 6pm. Our office is on the ground floor of the building and you can drop in to ask a question or report an issue at any time. I will not visit the apartment unless there is an urgent problem. There is a folder of local information inside the apartment which can be emailed to you before you arrive, if you would like to start planning.

Very Good

“Beautiful, clean, light, warm apartment in excellent location with great host.”

Reviewed 6 Feb 2013

We had a wonderful stay in Melissa's apartment. She is a fantastic hostess. Melissa provides a comprehensive folder about the apartment, local area, pubs... which was invaluable. The apartment itself was 5 star with everything you could wish for. We stayed warm even when it was snowing outside. We highly reccommend this accomodation. Thank you Melissa.

“Perfect London Base for Family”

Reviewed 23 Jan 2013

Our Australian family of 2 adults and 3 teenagers stayed at this lovely London apartment for 8 nights in late September/early October, 2012. It was in a perfect location and satisfied all our family's needs. Bloomsbury is a refined, safe area within easy walking distance of 2 tube stations - Russell Square and Chancery Lane. We used Russell Square most and also did our grocery shopping at the Brunswick Centre, opposite the station. All of London seemed to be at our fingertips via the tube, though we enjoyed our walks around Bloomsbury, to the British Museum and Covent Garden. The apartment itself was delightful and situated on the two floors above the owners' business, so security felt even greater during the day. There were 44 steps leading up to the apartment and 14 stairs between the apartment's two levels. There was no elevator. All rooms in the apartment felt spacious and homely and there was lots of natural light. Bedding was comfortable, cleaning of a good standard and storage space was ample. Wifi connection we found worked best in the living room, which also had plenty of handy maps and books for reading about London's attractions. The kitchen had everything we needed for a family of five. Noise levels at night were absolutely minimal. Fantastic! Communication, booking and check-in were very easy and we found the owners, Melissa and Robert, professional, flexible and reliable. We would highly recommend 22 John Street as a comfortable family base to explore all the wonders London has to offer.

Owner's reply: We realise that the stairs can be a shock if you are used to lifts/elevators and 21st century lateral living. We offer you part of a 200 year old house with unique character and beauty in a historic street in London. We feel this would be compromised by putting in an elevator/lift (and we'd never get planning permission as this lovely building is grade 2 listed and protected by some pretty stiff laws). We make it very clear on our descriptions that this apartment is not suitable if you have difficulty with stairs.

“Good Location, Comfortable, Warm and Clean!”

Reviewed 29 Nov 2012

Stayed at the 22 John Street apartment with wife and 3 kids (ages 11, 8 and 2) from 11th to 19th November. Happy with the location (Central and Picaddily line tube stations within acceptable walking distance though you'd probably need a stroller for kids aged below 4) and delighted with the state and condition of the apartment. It was very homely, comfortable and (most importantly) clean and provided us with a suitable base for our London exploits. There were also some good reading materials provided (London-based subjects in general) including general information on the locality and amenities near the apartment which we found very useful. In general, we were very satisfied with the overall condition of the apartment and would not hesitate staying here again should we return to London in future.

“A perfect place for family holiday makers to London”

Reviewed 17 Sep 2012

This flat is a perfect place for family. It’s is located in a quiet area, but very convenient for sightseeing and shopping. Rooms are clean and two bed rooms are spacious enough for five of us. Kitchen is well equipped. Living room is relaxing. We had a small problem in hot water supply on the first day. But, we did not need to worry as this apartment has a backup electric hot water supply system. On the next day, Melissa called a plumber, and the problem was solved immediately even it was on Sunday. Visited form Tokyo, Japan, August 2012.

“Wonderful spacious apartment in ideal London location”

Reviewed 17 Apr 2012

My family of 5 (3 children) stayed 7 nights at this wonderful central London apartment. It was perfect in terms of proximity to most London attractions, it was easy to walk to most things, including the shops at Russell Square, and also to the tube stations. We loved how spacious, clean and beautifully restored the apartment is and how quiet the street is at night. It made visiting London with the family so much more enjoyable than staying at a hotel. We would not hesitate staying in this apartment again and would recommend it to anyone as a great base when staying in London.

“Clean, spacious, uncluttered and ideally located”

Reviewed 12 Nov 2011

As a family, we have stayed in a few apartments while on holiday in London. This one was by far the best. Melissa was kind and accommodating and the apartment fantastic. Large sash windows which open fully provided us with plenty of fresh air during the sticky Summer (yes, the Brits do have Summer) and loads of natural light. All rooms are incredibly spacious and the apartment really private. John's Road is ideally situated for Central London - close to a number of tube stations but we mainly used the frequent buses we were able to catch at the end of John Road. We actually found John Road more accessible to Central London than our previous apartment in Kensington. The apartment is kitted out with everything one would need including a cell phone for guests to use and a wonderful file of information on local buses, restaurants, shopping areas etc. We would love to return to this apartment.

“This was a fabulous central London flat with wonderful owners who went above and beyond for us.”

Reviewed 14 Aug 2011

This lovely high-ceilinged, airy, and bright flat, with its large windows and polished floors, just down the street from the Dickens Museum, was a pleasure to come home to each day. We cooked most of our meals in the well-equipped kitchen, did our laundry at home, and had every resource available. Groceries were within easy walking distance, as were the British Museum, the British Library, and numerous galleries, restaurants, bookstores, wine bars and pubs. The neighbourhood is safe and pleasant, with a famous children's playground just around the corner. Direct buses to theatres or shops were all within a few minutes' walk. The owners were helpful and considerate beyond what anyone could have expected. One instance of many kindnesses is that when I left a pearl necklace behind in the flat after our departure, they special air-delivered it to me, without charging for the service. We give 22 John Street our highest recommendation.
