This was my seventh long-term stay with Globe, several times in this first-floor studio apartment directly on pedestrian-only St. Christopher’s Place. It is smack in the middle of London’s bustling West End, jammed with shops, restaurants, and pubs (have a pint at The Lamb and Flag, just a minute's walk). Though compact, including Murphy bed, the flat is comfortable and fully equipped for self-catering. Stylish Selfridges is literally a stone’s throw away, and the nearby Bond Street Metro station makes it easy to get around town.
With so many restaurants around, cooking is optional, but the kitchen is fully equipped if you choose to have a night in. (Highly recommended: Sofra restaurant, just a few steps out the door). The washer/dryer combo is a real plus for road warriors. Wi-Fi is fast and reliable, though with a weak password. The Sky TV package is loaded with choices, including movies, sports, and news. There is no A/C, but a fan is provided. During cold periods, the heating system offers toasty warmth (yes -- including the bathroom).
Check-in and check-out is a breeze, and Globe customer service is exceptional. Whether receiving my occasional mail deliveries, attending promptly to the rare maintenance issue, or keeping the apartment spotless in weekly cleanings, all the staff invariably went beyond the call of duty. I enjoyed myself thoroughly during my six-month stay and highly recommend this apartment for its prime location, amenities, and value versus an upscale hotel.
The studio is very well located. Fully furnished and equipped (dishwasher, washing machine, toaster, ...). Decor could be improved and cleaning once a week is not enough for those who book long stays as rubbish should be taken outside more often.
Being my fifth time to stay in the St Christophers Place area with Globe Apartments says a lot, the area is so central, the apartments clean and comfortable, and transportation and restaurants are various and at an arm’s length. Any problems or hiccups arising from appliances are responded to immediately by a very able and always smiling handyman. I hope to continue booking through Globe Apartments for my future stays in London. Whether short or long stay, I have found my stay with them memorable.
It has an excellent location and amenities with a well equipped kitchen stocked with a starter pack like milk, juice, snack etc. It is perfect for 1 person or a couple. I have stayed here earlier and intend to make this my regular abode during my future visits.
Neat and fully equipped studio in a superb location. Walking distance to oxford street... all sorts of restaurants and cafes at your door step.. across the street from bond station. Definitely will book again.
Third time to use Globe Apartments. Very satisfied. All shopping area, tube station, bus stops and restaurants at an arm's length. The Studio is very clean and well kept and the kitchen well equipped. Thank you!
We spent five nights here, and it was the perfect place for us! The location is fantastic, right off all of the shopping of Oxford St. Also just two blocks from the Bond tube station to get around the city super easily.
Truth be told, the Murphy bed isn't the most comfortable in the world, but we weren't in London to sleep.
The unit includes a washer/dryer combo which was great for us as I had been traveling for two weeks and was able to do a couple loads of laundry, as well we could easily throw the towels in to refresh them.
There are several really great restaurants, literally on the front door step if you don't want to go far, as well as a convenience store right across the street.
Just stay here, you will be happy!
