Description of the London vacation apartment rental
Fantastic 2 bedroom apartment on 2 levels in the heart of Soho. The apartment is on 3rd and 4th floors of building and comprises two double bedrooms, a bathroom with bath and shower, an upstairs open plan living room/ kitchen with two sofas (one sofa-bed) coffee table and breakfast bar.

Kitchen is fully equipped with hob, oven, microwave, washing machine and tumble dryer.

Upstairs room has 3 windows facing east, a fire-escape facing south (from which can be seen the top of the London Eye ferris wheel) and another window facing west meaning sunshine all day.

Each bedroom has a double bed plus a sofa bed in the living room means this flat can accommodate 6 in total. In addition a cot can be provided for young children and a folding single bed too.

Flat has free wireless broadband available and each room has a tv with digital receiver. Upstairs also has DVD and VCR. This is an ideal apartment for a city break or work visit to central London. In the heart of the West End it is possible to walk to most central locations and good transport links for all other parts of London.

Although Soho is can be quite a noisy area the flat is generally quiet, however one of the bedrooms does overlook the street and as a result can be noisy. The other bedroom backs on to a courtyard and is very quiet all day and night.

Additionally I sometimes rent out the rooms individually so if this is of interest please enquire. All rooms are lockable.

Area Information
One of the most vibrant, fashionable and central of London's neighbourhoods, Soho provides an ideal base to see the city. It's narrow streets and relatively small area (it was at one time a village!) enable it to maintain its distinct atmosphere and charm despite being bordered by some of London's busiest streets! Soho is home to many diverse communites making it a truly colourful place to visit .

Always unconventional, Soho has a great history of atracting bohemians, artists and literary figures. It was also known for its Jazz clubs, of which 'Ronnie Scotts' and the 100 Club are still thriving. Additionally Soho has many members clubs including the famous Soho House and Groucho Club.

the area is home to countless cafes and restaurants with tables lining the streets, these cater to all price ranges from cheap and cheerful to exclusive and fashionable. Historically the area has been home to many diverse communities including french, italian and chinese (London's Chinatown is only a few minutes walk from the apartment) and this is reflected in the food on offer, in less than a minute from the apartment you can find morrocan, Japanese, Thai, Spanish, Italian, French, Indian and Chinese restaurantsto name a few as well as some very reasonably priced bistros with good set meals for around £10 - £12. Soho is also a centre for London's gay scene with many gay clubs and bars in the area.

The flat is close to the corner of Old Compton Street, famous as a centre to the gay scene as well as many other bars shops and cafes. At night the area has a carnival atmosphere with bicycle rickshaws ferrying tourists and revelers around the neighborhood.

The apartment is located in the centre of the West End, often known as Theatreland. There are at least ten theatres in the area as well as countless cinemas from arthouse to mainstream. Leicester Square is around 5 mins walk from the apartment and is the location for most movie premiers held in London, the bright lights of Picadilly Circus are also just minutes away.

Bordering the area, Oxford Street is a famous shopping location. One end is a little run down but as you make your way towards Hyde Park the standard improves. Department Stores including Selfridges and John Lewis can be found here. Bond Street turns off Oxford Street and is home to expensive fashion outlets such as Prada and Gucci also on this street is Sotherbys, the famous auction house.

London is full of interesting places to visit from great shops, restaurants, bars and clubs to world famous museums and galleries. The apartment is located close to the British Museum and the National Gallery and National Portrait Gallery, also nearby is Trafalgar Square with the famous Nelson's Column. It is also a short journey to the massive Tate Modern art gallery and the attractions of the South Bank which feature the National Theatre and the National Film Theatre as well as numerous places to eat and drink all over-looking the Thames.

Soho really is one of the most exciting, interesting and convenient areas from which to see London and guests at the apartment usually comment how perfectly placed it is.
