Where to stay near Somerset House, London
Here is our pick of the top 5 holiday homes. Make your choice and treat yourself to a luxury stay.
Click to book Penthouse Perspective now: from £450 per night See the Shard, Gherkin and St Paul’s Cathedral before breakfast by staying at this spectacular penthouse. Its huge wraparound terrace faces all those London landmarks. We love that, and how the sense of luxury here is accompanied by homely pot plants, clusters of cushions and bursting bookshelves. The building's exterior isn’t quite so handsome, but that merely makes the wonderment inside feel more of a smug secret. Surrounding Clerkenwell boasts a trendy design scene and exulted coffee shops. Sleeps up to 4 | 2 Bedrooms | 2 Bathrooms
Chills Of The Square
Click to book Chills Of The Square now: from £150 per night We think Samuel Johnson was right when he said that “when a man is tired of London, he’s tired of life”. So it's best to stay in the heart of the city in Soho, where one can never tire. Make this charming flat your base as you explore the surrounding bustle. The bright, open living room has a comfortable sofa and family dining table, so you can chill out, relax and gather as a group to eat in comfort and style. The kitchen has everything you need for dinner – though there's plenty of restaurants around if you'd prefer to let some of the world's best chefs do the cooking. Step out onto your private balcony, with its racing green tiled walls, and enjoy the fresh air as you look out over the rooftops of Soho. Despite the incredible location round the corner from Leicester Square, this home manages to enjoy a sense of calmness and privacy that belies the busy Soho streets that surround it. It's impossible to tire of the city here. If you're chasing the thrill of the city, this is the perfect place. Sleeps up to 4 | 2 Bedrooms | 2 Bathrooms
Click to book Three Windows now: from £150 per night Oxford Street may be one of the busiest places in London, but this apartment just around the corner is as tranquil as it gets. The minimalist living room has three large windows that look out over the street below and your local pub — convenient for a quick pint on your way back from the area’s designer shops. If you prefer a quiet night in, there’s a smart TV opposite the chic Alvar Aalto seating arrangements and another in each of the luxurious bedrooms, which each have ensuite bathrooms and feature top-quality mattresses and blackout blinds to ensure that you'll be out like a light. If you’re into your cooking, you’ll be pleased to find high-end appliances in the kitchenette and a stylish dining table where the four of you will gather for an evening meal. Sleeps up to 4 | 2 Bedrooms | 3 Bathrooms
Click to book Fairytale Boulevard now: from £750 per night A central London stay doesn’t get much more sleek and stylish than this one. Sitting pretty on one of London’s most famous squares – so perfect they named it Golden – this modern home is just a hop, skip, and a jump from the bars and restaurants of Soho, the bright lights of Piccadilly Circus, and the theatres of Shaftesbury Avenue. In fact, when staying in this fairytale apartment, you’re within walking distance of pretty much the best London has to offer. The home itself is beautifully decorated – it’s all sharp corners, sleek design, luxurious furnishings, and the odd jewel tone or pastel pop for a spot of colour and character. The owners have also filled the apartment with original art, lending the home a more personal touch that just can’t be replicated. Plus a dedicated concierge service means there’s no need to worry about anything during you’re stay here – they can arrange for fridge fills and welcome packs, as well as airport lifts and room service, should you fancy a quiet night in from the buzzing streets outside. Sleeps up to 6 | 3 Bedrooms | 4 Bathrooms
Click to book Grapefruit Tonic now: from £109 per night Grapefruit Tonic is small studio room, which is a nice alternative to a hotel, with the prevalence of its stylish, contemporary interior. We liked the geometric wallpaper which is complemented with a deep green, velvet, Art Deco style bed frame. The kitchenette provides a hob and a microwave, but there’s no dining space, so it’s best for breakfast meals or if you’re going to be mostly dining out. If you’re looking for a no-frills base in the city, then this home is good value and in a great location. Sleeps up to 2 | 1 Bedroom | 1 Bathroom
