Neal's Yard by attilakosdim Soho by sdsalvesen

More reminiscent of a downtown Brooklyn loft apartment, Neal’s Loft is a sweet as duplex, providing great space and intuitive living. Sitting just off the BEAUTIFUL (and very photographic) Neal’s Yard, you’ll be in the heart of the action, with Covent Garden and Soho just round the corner. Although with a film projector in your bedroom, and gorgeous mezzanine to call for your morning coffee from, you might just not want to leave. There’s also a library of books with a ladder to reach them all, and a balcony to gaze over the city lights - it really is the stuff of dreams.

Well, where do we even begin… Hanging from the natural wooden beams, you’ll find your very own indoor hammock - where better to relax with a good book??

With Oxford Circus a mere 7 minutes away, how can you find a better location than this?! You’d usually expect unique holiday homes for rent in London hotspots like this to be a bit tiny and cramped, but wow - this place is pretty darn spacious. Think exposed brickwork, beams and a modern industrial feel. With two great sized bedrooms, you’ve got a good choice of rooms to settle down for a kip and there’s also a cheeky TV in there for some lazy morning viewing. All of this, and you still get a small terrace to pop onto for breakfast if the sun’s out.

Prince Luxe - For the instagrammers

It’s Chelsea, but not quite as you know it. This classic London townhouse is set upon an eye-popping street that’d be a crime not to photograph. Pops of mirroring ensure you can watch yourself smug grin whilst breezing through the corridors, and pristine white and greys create a zen-like atmosphere after an afternoon in the hustle and bustle of nearby King’s Road and Sloane Square. Come evening, slide into the ever-so inviting bathtub, light yourself a fire and enjoy some social time in the living area.

A night here costs:

£670
