Great place to set yourself up for a short stay!
Great property and helped getting us setup in London!
This Efficiency Flat is perfect for a solo traveler like me. It is roomy and comfortable with just about every convenience needed for a comfortable stay. Management of the flat is outstanding and responsive. The building is secure and very convenient. I recommend this owner and this property. I like the convenience of a refrigerator, kettle, two burners and a new modern microwave that has a non-microwave cooking setting, as well. Some might miss an actual oven, but I did not find it a problem. Plenty of dishes, glasses, tableware, Sufficient linens are provided and the washer dryer is a dream. Plus, there is a clean well maintained neighborhood launderette. Speaking of neighborhood shopping, this neighborhood has everything one needs!
Thank you for such very kind words about your recent stay at Clare Court. I too really love the flat, the building and its wonderful Central London location.Bloomsbury really does have a wonderful feeling to it.It's safe and it's one of London's most historical areas.One has to imagine when the building was built in the 1930's, London was very different in terms of living space....especially true for the kitchen area.This building was designed with a view that most of its well heeled residents would be out and about at the Theatre. It actually had a dumb waiter to each flat....with almost a restaurant like kitchen in the basement.How wonderful that must have been.
It's now one of the ,most loved purpose built buildings in Bloomsbury with a real sense of character and history.
I hope to welcome you back on your next visit to London.Thank you for booking with us again.
Great location, great place. Needed a bit more cleaning.
Great location, great place! Needed to be vacuumed and the hide a bed sheet was not clean, however there was a vacuum we could use as well as a washer with some spare sheets so all was good.
Charlene and James were helpful and accommodating. I would stay there again.
Thank you- I'm so pleased to hear you enjoyed your time in Bloomsbury. I'll remind the cleaning company to really give the carpets a good hoovering each time. I hope you'll stay again on your next visit to London.
Great building, nice unit, fantastic location
We enjoyed our stay in Bloomsbury. Great, safe neighborhood with many food options nearby. Centrally located to the Tube and other train stations. Great building, comfortable unit, and cozy space. Agreed with previous reviews that a carpet cleaning and toilet seat would go a long way. So would a new shower head. Overall, great value for a flat in central London. We would definitely consider staying here again in the future.
Thank you- I'm pleased you enjoyed Bloomsbury and the flat.The carpet has finally had its deep cleaning that it so needed. It almost looks brand new! The shower head has been soaked so the build up of limescale is no moreThe toilet seat has also been replaces with a more durable one..We do try our best to keep the place in a good state but we had to wait for a gap to have the carpets done.We hope to welcome you back on your next visit to London and thank you so much for leaving the place in a great state when you left.We're also pleased you found the flat to be good value for money for such a Central London location.
Amazing location and wonderful host
I spent a week in the cute little studio. It's very close to St Pancras and other public transportation options. Walking distance to many museums and squares. And a lot of cafes and food options which unfortunately I didn't have time to explore to the full extent. James was great. Very responsive. Loved having a washing machine available. The tub is also a nice size if you like to soak your weary cold bones after a day in a chilly London.
For one person the size of the flat is just fine. For 3 (my husband and daughter were with me for the first 4 nights) it's tight! A few little things that could be improved upon of course. Carpet could use a good cleaning. The beds would benefit from a nice cushy mattress cover so you don't feel the springs. But most nights I was too exhausted to notice. And a toilet seat cover (given that it's right next to the tub) would be a simple improvement. That said, I would still stay here again as you can't beat the location and again James was very accommodating. Thanks!
Thank you- I'm pleased to hear that overall you really enjoyed your time in Bloomsbury.I hope to welcome you and your family back on your next visit the UK.
Cozy,Clean and Comfortable
Our apartment was in a perfect location in Bloomsbury. Although small the place was clean and and had all the basic amenities. The folks there were very responsive and helpful. They were also kind and responsive to my many questions. I would stay there again. My only suggestion is to provide a way one could get in touch with the front desk. We had a friend meet us and there was no way we could check with the front desk to tell them he was coming. Overall a great experience.
Thank you- I'm pleased to hear you really enjoyed the flat and its location. It's very useful have the porter on duty but they are really there for security and to accept the odd parcel,they tend not to act as a concierge service and for that reason they don't give out their numbers. It's always best for visitors just to buzz the flat directly and then be let in. The porter won't let people into the building unless they know them or it's the postman,which is excellent as the security is great and makes people feel safe.I hope to welcome you back to Bloomsbury on your next visit.
Situated in the Heart of Historic Bloomsbury ,our flat has a wonderful quiet location. It's close to several historic attractions and is a short walk to the Eurostar Terminal with its direct trains to Lille,Paris and Brussels.

The nearby shopping on Oxford St and Charing Cross Road will be a real treat for people who love to shop until they drop. From high end shops to the two very large budget Primarks,one will find something to take back home with them. After a morning strolling aroud the West End a special treat of a full English Afternnoon Tea will sure to become a special memory of your time in London. Yes, it can be somewhat expensive but it should be something that should be tried if you have the time and budget. The Ritz is by far the best in London.The Savoy, The Dorchester,Browns, and Clariddge's are all expensive but worth it.The National Portrait Gallery,The Wallace Collection and the Langham are more affordable and equally as good. Fortnum and Mason on nearby Picacadilly is also worth it. Their food hall is amazing/and even if you don't have time for the full Afternoon Tea you could buy some tea to take back with you. The tin cans ar simply stunning in design.A great gift for those back home.You will find that a few of the hotels near the British Museum also offer Afternoon Tea/but the ones listed above are far better.One exception is Bea's of Bloomsbury which is well worth a visit.
