House of Coir
Click to book House of Coir now: from £135 per night Located in a beautiful white stucco townhouse, just a three-minute walk from Angel Tube station, this studio flat is a fantastic choice for a solo traveller or couple looking for a stylish space but who don't need lots of superfluous space. Despite the lofty three-metre-high ceilings and large sash window, your host – an experienced architect and interior designer – has really put a lot of thought into the layout and decor to make the most of the compact size. No detail has been overlooked in the pursuit of perfection, and every element must earn its place. As a result, the home manages to be both a chic yet relaxing space for two people to enjoy comfortably. We loved the use of beautiful natural materials, which are mixed with a subtle and mature colour palette. A bonus is a super-smart bathroom, complete with a sumptuous bathtub – perfect for a soak at the end of a busy day exploring the pubs, indie boutiques and antiques shops that dot this corner of North London. Sleeps up to 2 | 1 Bedroom | 1 Bathroom
Centre Stage VI
Click to book Centre Stage VI now: from £399 per night We fell in love with this modern penthouse before even stepping foot over its threshold. Why? You're situated in one of London's most sort-after gardens – St James's Square – and a short seventeen-minute walk to Covent Garden's infamous piazza. Admire captivating street performers, mooch around upscale boutiques, stop off for a taste of French fine-dining or head to the authentic Portuguese pastel de nata shop for a tasty snack. Come evening, there's a surplus of incredible theatre shows to take in, while oh-so-trendy Soho lies just fifteen minutes walk away. Inside, this apartment is a picture of modern sophistication, combining soft velvet furnishings, gold-accented surfaces, ornamental fireplaces, an utterly divine marble island kitchen, and plenty of natural light pouring in through an abundance of windows. The bedrooms pop with vibrant and regal colours, snazzy patterns and crushed velvet carpets that make for an elegant yet homely feel. And we could think of nothing better than taking a long soak in the swanky freestanding bathtub in the marble-clad ensuite. If you can bring yourself to leave the tub, the master bedroom even benefits from its own chill-out lounge, that's calling out for a good book or a couple of rounds of cards. Sleeps up to 6 | 3 Bedrooms | 3 Bathrooms
Click to book Pomegranate Tonic now: from £90 per night If you’re looking for a no-frills base in the city, then this home is good value and in a great location. This is a very small studio home that provides the bare necessities. However, we think it’s a great alternative to a hotel room, with the prevalence of the stylish, contemporary interior. We loved the Art Deco style headboard and geometric print wallpaper, which is works nicely with the red cushion and orange throw. The kitchenette provides a hob and a microwave, but there’s no dining space, so it’s best for breakfast only and if you’re going to be dining out. Sleeps up to 2 | 1 Bedroom | 1 Bathroom
Click to book Neon Melody now: from £229 per night Located in an exciting part of London, close to London Bridge and with lots of quintessential pubs and restaurants around you, we could have moved in tomorrow. The home itself reflects the neighbourhood – playful and modern with an industrial edge. It’s a unique space, renovated and designed by the homeowner herself, who is also an interior designer. Complete with an incredible view of The Shard, the privacy of a gated complex and position opposite a beautiful public garden, Neon Melody scored highly in every aspect of our test. Sleeps up to 4 | 2 Bedrooms | 2 Bathrooms
Click to book Henrietta now: from £257 per night With bustling food markets, a vibrant restaurant scene, independent boutiques, and designer shopping, you might feel like Covent Garden is somewhat of a misnomer. That said, this modern home is a one-minute walk (or just across the road) from the tranquil St Paul’s Church and garden, meaning you can indeed find pockets of serenity in this lively area of London. Another of these serene spaces is right here in the flat – bright white walls, arched windows, wooden floors, and a soft grey rug are some calming features of the living space. The L-shaped sofa is a plush spot for your morning cup of Earl Grey, or you can perch at the window and look down to the main street below. A seven-minute walk will take you to Leicester Square, where you can pop in for a pre-theatre at a classy restaurant before heading out for a West End show. And at the same distance to Chinatown, another option is to explore this buzzing district and sit down to try some authentic food. On the way home, you might as well stop in at a cocktail or wine bar to soak up the atmosphere. Your flat may be peaceful, but this area of London likes to stay up past its bedtime. Sleeps up to 2 | 1 Bedroom | 1 Bathroom
