Condo/Apartment
Right in the middle of London, my lovely 2 bed apartment is 10 mins from Kings Cross & 8 from Russell Square station (British Museum). Has a huge, sunny garden & barbecue! Perfect for summer holidays in London or business trips to the City or Holborn. You will have the whole apartment to yourself. Space You have access to the entire home and it's not shared with anyone! Welcome to my home in Central London. I have lived here for a few years and thoroughly enjoyed every single day in this lovely cosy flat. Super excited to share my space with fellow travellers. The flat is perfectly located close to not 1 but 3 tube stations. The closest is of course Russell Square but Kings Cross St. Pancras and Chancery Lane are not far. Between these three stations, you have access to most tube lines...Right in the middle of London, my lovely 2 bed apartment is 10 mins from Kings Cross & 8 from Russell Square station (British Museum). Has a huge, sunny garden & barbecue! Perfect for summer holidays in London or business trips to the City or Holborn. You will have the whole apartment to yourself. Space You have access to the entire home and it's not shared with anyone! Welcome to my home in Central London. I have lived here for a few years and thoroughly enjoyed every single day in this lovely cosy flat. Super excited to share my space with fellow travellers. The flat is perfectly located close to not 1 but 3 tube stations. The closest is of course Russell Square but Kings Cross St. Pancras and Chancery Lane are not far. Between these three stations, you have access to most tube lines in London. The flat is spread across two levels. The entrance is on the ground floor (only 4-5 steps to entry) which leads you to the living room and the open plan kitchen. The garden is located behind the kitchen. Kitchen is fully equipped if you want some light cooking. The bedrooms and the bathroom are located in the basement level. That said there is a natural light seeping into the bedrooms. The main bedroom has a large king size bed and some cupboard space. The second bedroom is smaller and has a double futon from Futon Co. opened up as a bed. I can vouch for its comfort as the mattress is quite thick. In both bedrooms you will find clean white 100% cotton sheets. They are pressed and freshly laundered for ultimate comfort. The bathroom is also fairly large and comes with fluffy white towels and a hair dryer :) I also provide soap and shampoo so you don't need to bring your own. The flat is well equipped with dishwasher, washing machine, TV, microwave, kettle and toaster. I really hope you have a lovely time in my flat. Please look after it for me :) Access Since I used to live here some of my personal effects are in the flat. 1 cupboard is locked up with my things and my alcohol tray is out of bound for guests. Other than that, guests are welcome to use my apartment as if it is their own. ## Interaction I am travelling a lot for work these days. So in my absence, my friends at Hostmaker are looking after my home. They're a property management service team of Londoners who are hosts themselves. I trust them to give you a warm welcome! Hostmaker will look after you. If you have any questions about your stay, please get in touch through the channel platform as I am still your host :). Neighborhood The flat is located in Central London in an area called Bloomsbury. Those who know it will know that it is residential, green leafy and home to London's most notable colleges, hospitals and the world famous British Museum. The flat is located on a quiet street just off the main Gray's Inn Road. There is a small public garden at the doorstep of the flat which you will have access to. There are some lovely little cafes close to the flat. My favourite is Bea's of Bloomsbury. Their cupcakes and afternoon tea are divine. On the same street you have a lovely Vietnamese restaurant called Ban Mi Bay serving hot bowls of Pho and baguettes every day. Head to Granary Square to sample two of London's most popular brunch spots - Caravan and Dishoom. The latter does an Indian brunch in a huge, beautifully decorated warehouse space. If you want to be trendy then you cannot go wrong with these two places. If you are with children then don't worry. Coram fields will come to the rescue. It is a unique 7 acre park and play area for kids and young adults - it is free and no adult can enter the park with out a child making it a very safe place indeed. For the high brow minded going to SOAS, Great Ormond Street Hospital, Royal Academy of Dramatic Arts, University College Hospital, National Hospital for Neurology and Neurosurgery etc. this flat is the perfect base. The main touristic spots of London are not far from the flat. Just hop on the Piccadilly line from Russell Square station and head to Piccadilly Circus, Knightsbridge, South Kensington etc. Transit There are three tube station within walking distance of the flat. The closest is Russell Square which is on the Piccadilly line which will bring you home straight from Heathrow Airport . The other stations are Kings Cross where you can grab the Hammersmith, Circle, Metropolitan, Victoria lines and the Eurostar. The last station is Chancery Lane which is on the Central line. This will take you to Bond Street, Tottenham Court, St. Paul's, Liverpool Street and Notting Hill gate. Notes Every homeowner thinks his home is perfect. I do too but I again wanted to highlight a few things which you may want to keep in mind: - the bedrooms are located in the basement level. There is natural light coming in and they are not damp or musty. - there is 1 set of stairs you need to use to get from living room to bedroom. - check in time is after 3 pm and check out afteMore
