Here is our pick of the top 5 holiday homes. Make your choice and treat yourself to a luxury stay.
Peter the Orchid
Click to book Peter the Orchid now: from £609 per night Peter the Orchid is an impressively finished home in the heart of Westminster. Rainfall showers and air conditioning are a couple of the standout features. Knowing the location, it was a pleasant surprise registering one of our lowest decibel readings here, twenty in the master bedroom. This isn't a lived-in home so those looking for a space filled with interesting artefacts will want to look elsewhere, however, if you're looking for a base in the area with all the necessities covered you'll do well here. Sleeps up to 4 | 2 Bedrooms | 3 Bathrooms
Click to book Rosetta now: from £175 per night Bright, modern and ideally located just a five-minute walk from Holborn station, this comfortable flat is ideal for a couple or solo traveller looking to get the most out of a stay in London. Though compact, this home’s decor makes great use of space, with floor-to-ceiling windows flooding the living room in light. We love the mid-century modern chair that’s perfectly positioned to catch the city's early morning rays and the velvet loveseat that invites you to kick back after a long day of walking. Speaking of exploring, the British Museum is just a ten-minute walk away while Covent Garden’s cobblestone streets – lined with boutiques, bars and restaurants – are less than twenty minutes away on foot. After a day of sightseeing, come back home for a meal and a glass of wine, or head back out after a refreshing shower to discover Central London’s fine dining scene. When it’s time for bed, the minimalist blue-toned bedroom promises a restful night’s sleep ahead of another day of fun. Sleeps up to 2 | 1 Bedroom | 1 Bathroom
The Easton Diamond
Click to book The Easton Diamond now: from £380 per night Crowned by a rooftop hot tub, this chic Clerkenwell home is perfect for sociable small groups. You can enjoy an afternoon BBQs on its sunny lower terrace, with wireless speakers piping out favourite tunes, then retreat to plump sofas for nights around the TV. Alternatively, just head for Exmouth Market’s restaurants and bars, which are mere minutes away. Upstairs, two big en-suites feature deep white walls and spa-like bathrooms – although bashful types may blush at the master bedroom’s glass-walled shower. Sleeps up to 4 | 2 Bedrooms | 2 Bathrooms
Click to book The Limelight now: from £200 per night Smack bang in the middle of the bright lights of Shaftesbury Avenue, this apartment is as central as it gets, but as calm as can be. The cool and composed interiors, with pastel lavender walls, a matte white kitchen and dramatic black accents create a soothing yet stylish atmosphere. Open the shutters to flood the living space with natural light as you read the newspaper on the trendy charcoal grey sofa. Weave through the side streets for lesser-known brunch spots and indie cafes. A five-minute walk takes you to Trafalgar Square where the free to enter National Portrait Gallery makes for a fascinating afternoon. Evenings are strictly reserved for a slap-up feast in nearby China Town and front-row seats at a star-studded performance in one of the West End’s iconic theatres, just across the road from your apartment. Sleeps up to 2 | 1 Bedroom | 1 Bathroom
Click to book Victorian Secret now: from £400 per night London is a city that prides itself on reinvention. When this unassuming wood workshop went up in Victorian times, little did those constructing it know that these solid brick walls would one day house a luxury apartment which is a model for pristine interior design. The original large windows have been kept and they continue to invite copious amounts of natural light into the living space. Only today, it bounces pleasingly off the stark white walls and dark parquet flooring. Inside, the minimalist kitchen and marble-tiled bathrooms are pleasing to the eye, and there's even a cute roof terrace that offers views of The Shard and the London Eye. The location is ideal, too. Within ten minutes' walk, you have The Old Vic Theatre — and The Young Vic, for that matter — while five minutes longer in the opposite direction will get you to the street food vendors and organic artisans of Borough Market. Sleeps up to 8 | 3 Bedrooms | 3 Bathrooms
