This building is located a few steps from the Piazza on King Street. It contains four recently refurbished bright and spacious one-bedroom flats on the 1st, 2nd, 3rd and 4th floors overlooking King Street to the front and the pretty St Pauls Churchyard to the rear. It lies equidistant from Covent Garden and Leicester Square Underground Stations.
Each apartment can sleep up to five people – two in the bedroom and two on a comfortable sofa-bed in the lounge area. These areas also contain a table, four chairs and a flat-screen TV. A fifth person can stay in apartments one and two with an optional fold out bed (£40 per stay). There is a maid service (Mon-Friday) excluding weekends and bank holidays.
Our flats all have modern shower-rooms (shower, hand basin and toilet) and fully fitted and equipped kitchen facilities.
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.

Arrived at the apartment entered the key safe code came up with an errror so we unable to get into the apartment. I specifically asked for a slightly early check in when I enquired, when I booked and have chased this twice. When I first enquired about this apartment I informed my mother was elderly and was converned about the stairs. We have been travelling since 7 this morning and now having dragged my mother and all the cases up the stairs we cannot get into the apartment. Having called the number to the office I can only describe the attitude of the man I spoke to as not bothered, lazy and not all that helpful. He was unsure of the problem said he had to make a call took my number (which is already on the system) and that was it. We stood outside the apartment for a further 15 minutes called back .. yeah yeah spoke to you earlier waiting for a call back. When I asked how long it would be unsure unhelpful no assurances no empathy basically no customer care. I have had to carry the cases back down the stairs and am currently over an hour later (only 50 minutes away from standard check in time) sat waiting on the street with a tearful 6 year old and a tired and worried elderly mother for a call with no idea of how long this will be an no faith in the services. When I tried to point out this was unacceptable service yeah yeah send an e mail to complain.. This is totally unacceptable and should not be the start to a special trip away we should have to experi nice. We have the London eye booked this pm and I am sure they will not refund our tickets because we haven’t been able to get into the apartment. I wouldn’t recomment this apartment and based on this experience I would avoid. At this rate I’ll be knocking on hotel doors later this pm. Start to a wonderful and probably one of th last I will have with my mum and son ruined. Sent from my iPhone
Response from the manager Thank you for your review and sorry to hear of your difficulties, however all this could have been avoided if you had just asked for an early check-in, then the key safe code would have worked. During your stay we provided you with documentary evidence which showed that you only ever asked for a late check-out but you never got back to us. Such a shame to have put your family through all this and unfortunate that you chose to write the review immediately, rather than wait and learn that we were actually not to blame. We hope the late check-out helped which we provided free of charge.
“Great location and flat met our needs”
We enjoyed our stay at this flat. It provided everything we needed for a 3 day stay. Close to tube stop and shopping/food everywhere around. Easy walk to the British Museum and Theaters. Covent Garden outdoor entertainment a little loud on Saturday night so we joined everyone at the party and had a great time. Would stay here if we visit London again. Note: Some stairs to climb with luggage.
“Fantastic location for this light airy modern apartment”
The location is so central and easy to access public transport, but we walked everywhere. Best of all is that it so accessible to theatres.the apartment is bright and modern and has interesting views to the King st from the living room and to the courtyard garden of the st Paul's Covent Garden church. The bedroom is spacious and comfortable , the kitchen compact but adequate for preparing holiday meals.we have stayed here numerous times, mainly because of convenient location, kitchen facilities, and pleasant environment.. The servicing staff are always very hospitable and helpful - a nice bonus for an apartment.
“In the heart of Covent Garden”
My family of 5 stayed here for 4 nights. Plenty of room for 2 adults and 3 teenagers. Wished there were more bedding. But overall great place. My kids loved the heated towel rack. Very efficient washer/dryer. Fabulous location. Right in the middle of the holiday festivities of Covent Garden. Plenty of eating places nearby. Tescos (groceries) at the end of the street. Great entry system. Clear check in instructions. The Covent Garden station is less than 5 mins away. It looks like it will be closed for 2015 though.
“Ideal location in Covent Garden”
I stayed here with my teenage daughter last week. Excellent location right in the heart of Covent Garden Christmas festivities. The flat had all the amenities we needed and we were very comfortable. The flat is ideal for two people. The lounge in the living room can be made into a bed, but we found the bedding did not fit, so opted to share the double bed. Even though on lively King St, the flat was surprisingly quiet. Have stayed in various other hotels and apartments in London, but this is now our favourite.
“Perfect London Apartment”
I am so happy I spent the time to research a lot of London apartments before settling on this one. This apartment is a q bed 1 bath apartment located right in Covent Garden. This location in Central London can't be beat. One end of the street is Covent Garden. The other end of the street is a Tesco grocery store. We stayed three days and even with a 2yr old walked everywhere including Borough Market/Tate Modern, St. James Park and Bond Street shopping. The amenities of the apartment were all you could ask for with a fridge, stove top, electric kettle and washing machine. They provided an infant cot for an additional charge and a high chair for free. I would absolutely stay again though I think the bed in this apartment might need a refreshing soon. It's a bit soft. Also, all my inquiries were resolved to my satisfaction but not all my inquires were answered directly. I asked to enter the apartment before the 3pm check in time. While they never said yes or no, when I arrived the entry instructions worked and the apartment had already been prepared. On our first night, there was no wi-fi but I sent them a text and the next morning it worked--though no one responded to me directly. About a week after we left, the deposit was returned.
“Excellent in all respects”
Flat location cannot be beat. One hundred feet from Covent Garden. Bedroom is on back (overlooking a church yard!!) so no problem with noise at night. Facilities are all you need. Service is efficient. Only problem is that you need to climb two flight of stairs. Might be a problem for some. Management company is accessible and responsive.
“Great location, good facilities”
Would recommend for central location. Well serviced, comfortable apartments . Suitable for 4 adults . Double bed , and pull out sofa bed
“The place to stay in London”
After weeks of searching, my mother in law and I came across this listing. The price was reasonable and the location seemed right. We have just returned and I have to say this place was fantastic. The location was perfect. We felt like we were central to everything and right in the middle of the action. Being right around the marketplace was very nice, as it made finding places to eat very easy. The apartment was clean and comfortable for three people. When I plan my next trip to London, this is absolutely where I will stay.
“Excellent Central Location.”
Flat 1 Opera House is excellent. We are UK born but resident for decades in the USA. Cannot beat the location a few yards from Covent Garden. Supermarkets within 100 yards. Bedroom is at the back overlooking a church garden which is locked up at night. So NO noise at all. Good basic furniture and everything you need to cook simple meals. If you are from abroad try buying ready prepared meals at Marks and Spencers (by the Covent Garden Tube Station) and cook them up yourself. Save a ton of money. When leaving to go to Heathrow go to the Covent Garden tube station. Direct elevator to the platform. No steps to worry about. Only problem -- flat does have two flights of stairs to get there!!! And would probably would be crowded if more than two people.
