London, England
Outstanding split level Designer Loft Style apartment in the heart of London's West End. Amazing space created by architects: high ceilings, life, love and laughter in each corner to offer guests an amazingly convenient apartment - stylish, comfortable and perfect for you!

Bright and breezy

The Hourglass echoes London's lively inspiration.

Inside, the compact-and-perfect kitchen is to the right of the entrance adjacent to the stunning living room. Four meter white high walls, wood floors and amazing large windows that offer an open view to the courtyard give the sitting and dining room not only a fresh feel but elicits a WOW when entering the space.

It has a gracefully grey large sofa with a coffee table, and leads into a dining area with a glass-topped table and several landscape paintings.

Back in the entrance hall, you’l...

We had a great stay in this apartment and the host is very nice and helpful! It is near great restaurants and a welcoming neighborhood tavern. I would certainly stay here again.

Great central apartment for all the sights. Really convenient for all buses and the tube. Walking distance to theatres, Covent garden, the river, St Pauls... Accommodation layout was great for our family of 5. Greeter was friendly and apartment was clean for our arrival.

The primary feature to recommend about this property is its location which is, in fact, GREAT - very close to the tube, and within walking distance (depending on how far you're comfortable walking) to some attractions. There is a convenience store directly next to the property and tons of restaurants and eateries close by. That said, our overall experience with...

About the neighbourhood
The LOCATION is perfect for your stay as it is VERY CENTRAL. The sightseeing bus (Big Bus) stops just a few meters down the road. But it's also easy to explore the city without it because there are so MANY ATTRACTIONS very close by and the flat has exceptional GOOD TRANSPORTATION links (25 bus lines and 4 London Underground lines) in all directions. It's actually located right half way between Buckingham Palace, Big Ben, House of Parliaments and Westminster Abbey in the west and Tower of London and Tower Bridge in the east. You will be staying very close to Covent Garden, St. Paul's Cathedral and the legendary Somerset House. London Eye is just across the river Thames. You can actually see the river from your bedroom.
