Great apartment, great location

  • 5 of 5

Summary

-The apartment exceeded most of my expectations.

-Beautifully kitted out and decorated.

-Great location.

Pros

-Location

->Walking distance to Russell Square tube station (on the Picadilly Line and ~55 minute train ride from Heathrow).

->Plenty of supermarkets within a 5 to 10 minute walk (depending on the size of supermarket you want) with all the goods you will need to make your own meals.

->Lots of restaurants in the area.

-Accommodation

->Very large one bedroom apartment, with sizeable separate living area and kitchen.

->Very nicely decorated vs some more soulless apartments we have stayed in.

->Ensuite bathroom to bedroom with toilet, shower in bathtub, two sinks, heated towel rack, plenty of towels, etc.

->Additional separate toilet near entrance.

->Plenty of storage in the bedroom.

->Large living area with very large tv (lots of channels), sectional couch, chair, additional couch (I think it becomes a bed).

->Dining table and 6 chairs.

->Kitchen very well kitted out with basic spices, plenty of pots, pans, cups, plates, flatware, etc.

->Washing machine (very useful), dishwasher, oven, stove top, microwave.

->Instruction booklets for every piece of equipment (a nice touch).

->Looked better in reality vs the pictures (a rarity).

-Operator

->Heritage Apartments are the operator and were very helpful. Check-in/Check-out instructions were clear (despite us arriving at 8pm), communication was prompt.

->There is a hefty damage deposit (understandable as the place has been decorated to a very high standard and looks very new). We have yet to receive the deposit refund, although we only checked out this morning and given that we left it in the same condition we found it I do not expect any issues.

Cons

-The only personal con I have is that I expected a king size bed (I used this as part of my selection criteria). The bed was definitely not North American king sized, but perhaps this is a difference between European and North American sizes.....

-People with mobility issues, or who are older may have issues with a small set of stairs from the street to the apartment entrance and getting in and out of the bath (quite high bath to step in and out of).

-If you have issues with noise you will need earplugs - this is London and the apartment is on street corner. It is not too busy, but you can hear traffic and people if you are a light sleeper. We did not have any issues as we use earplugs if it is noisy.

Convenient, comfortable, modern apartment

  • 5 of 5

This was my second time staying in one of these apartments. They are conveniently located and there are many restaurants, grocery stores and pubs nearby. It's easy to get wherever you need to go in central London and the apartment itself is comfortable, clean and has everything you need, as described. It was quiet even though there was construction across the street. I'm ready to go back anytime and recommend it highly.

Beautiful apartment in quiet neighborhood

  • 5 of 5

The apartment and staff communication exceeded our expectations. The apartment was within 10 minutes of 3 different subway lines and down the street from the bus stop. You could be on the River Thames in 25 minutes from leaving the building. The apartment is in a quiet building a couple blocks off the main road.

Very modern & updated with modern furnishings and every attention to detail was given. All amenities you would want were available...including air conditioning (not that it was needed at end of September), bath products, kitchen appliances & a washer/dryer.

Convenient to grocery store and variety of neighborhood restaurants and a pub.

The representative who met us upon arrival was very informative about London and everything in the apartment.

We were very satisfied with our stay at this apartment!

Modern, upscale apartment in great location

  • 5 of 5

Spent eight days in this beautiful, clean, modern apartment with my husband and two kids. Convienent, safe neighborhood, just a few minutes walk to restaurants, cafes, drug store, basic groceries, etc. Buses a couple of blocks away take you to Kings Cross or Holborn stations (or a 15 min walk, which we did several times).

With the exception of room service, the apartment has all the amenities. The kitchen is fully equipped to cook for a family. Note that the sofa bed is a bit small for two people. Karen was very accomadating even had extra sheets and pillow delivered when my 2nd decided to sleep on the other sofa.

Since our flight arrived later in the evening, Karen arranged for their driver Mark, who was very pleasant and full of information, to pick us up at Heathrow.

We highly recommend this apartment, especially if you want to live like a local!

Modern apartment in great location

  • 4 of 5

The location is the best thing about the apartment. It is convenient to pubs, restaurants and a wonderful supermarket. The building was recently restored with all the bells and whistles, but in some cases not the most functional plan. The room darkening shades are effective for light blocking, but there is no privacy in the daytime or after dark. This is especially true in the bathroom. There is an amazing amount of traffic on John St. almost 24 hours a day making sleep difficult, but hailing a cab easy. Staff was prompt responding to problems, but we would have liked clear instructions on how to use the appliances. Would not recommend for people who are older or not in good physical condition due to tub enclosure. Nor for those who plan to do anything beyond the simplest cooking.

Owner's Response: These guests were a pleasure to have however I feel may have missed a couple of things. We provide full manuals in the kitchen give giving clear instructions for all the appliances. Manufacturing manuals The apartment renovated to a high standard has double glazing and blocks out any traffic noise only if you have the windows open would you hear traffic noise. With the benefit of air con this is not necessary. I hope this additional information is useful.

Car: not necessary

Bloomsbury is an area of the London Borough of Camden, in central London, between Euston Road and Holborn, developed by the Russell family in the 17th and 18th centuries into a fashionable residential area. It is notable for its array of garden squares, literary connections (exemplified by the Bloomsbury Group), and numerous cultural, educational and health-care institutions. Bloomsbury was not the first area of London to have acquired a formal square, Bloomsbury Square laid out in 1660 by Thomas Wriothesley, 4th Earl of Southampton, as Southampton Square was the first square to be named as such.
