Description: Apartment in London
Lovely 1 Bed Home in Westminster
This is a Seasonal Rental with a maximum of 6 month term.
Welcome to my warm and lovely home in the heart of Westminster! This is London's touristic and governmental hub, the place of royal abbeys and palaces!
The best thing about my flat is the location - its only 7 minutes walk to the great Westminster Abbey, Big Ben, the Parliament and Buckingham Palace. The flat itself is located in a modern purpose built building on a quiet street. There is an elevator in the block so you won't have to drag your luggage up the stairs.
The living room consists of a sofa that opens into a full double bed for 2 people. There is a TV equipped with Freeview with many TV and Radio channels and with an APPLE TV box and dining table for four. The kitchen is fully equipped with all modcons. There is a toaster, kettle, dishwasher and all sorts of pots and pans. I have also left some basic condiments to get you started and some tea, coffee and sugar to refresh you every morning :)
The bedroom has a full double bed and a TV with Freeview. Both beds come with luxury linens which are freshly provided for each new guest. The apartment is also professionally cleaned before you arrive. This really is the perfect spot for 4 people looking for a great value home in the middle of London.
Other extras include APPLE TV (latest model) Just sign in with your iTunes Account to use all its features. 2 Bluetooth speakers and WIFI radio. HP Air printer for all your Printing needs like Boarding cards etc . There is a combined washer and dryer in the apartment. Baby cot and high chair can be provided upon prior request.
Come summer I will ensure that there are fans and/or portable aircon as the flat is on the top floor and gets lots of sunlight.
I rent a parking space in the building and I am happy to provide it my guests for £40 a day (the closest NCP parking space charges at least £60 a day).
The entire apartment is available for my guests.
Interaction with Guests
I work quite close by so I will try and make myself available for my guests. However when I am not around, Hostmakers will look after you. They are a lovely local bunch and will ensure that you are comfortable.
Simply the best neighbourhood for the big tourist sights! You are only walking distance away from Buckingham Palace, Westminster Abbey, Houses of Parliament, Downing Street and St. James Park. This really is the centre of the city.
There are plenty of restaurants and cafes to choose from in the area. Iberica has really nice tapas and worth a try. You will find quite a few restaurantsincluding Wagamama in Cardinal Place near Victoria Station. If you miss Chinese and wanted a cheap take away, there is one on Strutton Ground. For fancy (but nice) Chinese, try A.Wong on Wilton Road. There is a Starbucks across the road.
And, while you are in the area, why not have breakfast at Regency Cafe. It was featured in movies such as Layer Cake and is a true local cafe.
Ichi-riki does superb Japanese on Scrutton Street. Adam Handling at the nearby St. Ermine's Hotel is a swish place if you are looking for something more formal. For something more special there is Quilon which is an amazing Indian restaurant which has been in London for many years. There is another one called the Cinnamon Club which is a favourite of Madonna!
There is a House of Fraser and plenty of high street stores nearby. There is a Marks & Spencer also in Cardinal Place.
Curzon is one of the best cinemas in London. St. James Theatre could have something interesting too. There are two major musicals nearby showing Billy Elliot and Wicked.
Not stating the obvious like the Big Ben, Westminster Abbey, the Parliament, London Eye & Tate Britain, but please do take a walk in St. James' Park if you have time. You get a particularly nice view on the bridge and it is my favourite spot in London. Oh, if you have nuts bring some with you to feed the squirrels.
Fortunately this apartment is close to three tube stations. The closest tube station is St. James Park which is on the Circle and District line. Victoria station is also close by giving you access to Gatwick Express and the Victoria line. You can even walk to Westminster which gives you access to the Jubilee line.Access from Heathrow can be by Heathrow Express then Tube (metro,subway,underground)A cheaper but longer way is to take the Tube(London Underground ) (Subway) direct from Heathrow to St James Park (1 HR) Piccadilly line but changing Hammersmith or Barons Court to District line by walking across platform and waiting for district train (any).
