An apartment in the West End is a dream for most Londoners who would like to live amongst the city's buzzing nightlife, exclusive shops and historic sights. Whilst extortionate property prices and the scarcity of West End apartments may make this dream short-lived, it is possible to experience a glimpse of life in the centre of the city. Janet Poole House offers well-appointed serviced apartments for visitors, providing a secluded home away from home, for short and long stays and travellers arriving on business or leisure.
Apartments are available in Double, Twin or Triple Studio sizes and are housed in an attractive Georgian town house, with comfortable modern interiors decorated in a tasteful, muted colour palette to engender a relaxed atmosphere. All apartments feature a modern, fully fitted kitchen, a work desk, flat-screen TV, linens and a Wi-Fi connection at a surcharge. A weekly maid service and laundry service is available via a representative at the office, who will help with any problems and queries if required.
The apartments are in an excellent location, convenient for picking up groceries from the Tesco and Sainsbury’s supermarkets in Tottenham Court Road, and surrounded by restaurants and bars if you want to hit the town for the night. Staying here, you are also surrounded by London's best-loved sights and attractions, with The British Museum and British Library just a few minutes walk away, the extensive shops of Oxford Street and Tottenham Court Road just a 7-minute walk away, Shaftesbiury Avenue and Covent Garden Theatres, Leicester Square cinemas, Soho bars and clubs and Chinatown's restaurants all within a 20-minute walk. The campuses of the University of London and University College London and Great Ormond Street Children's Hospital are also close by, so the hotel is ideal for any visiting relatives. The area surrounding the apartment is pleasant and safe at night and here you will find some hidden gems, such as Pollock’s Toy Museum, The Petrie Museum of Egyptian Archaeology and The Crypt Gallery, which offers a subterranean, and slightly morbid art experience.
The apartments are well situated for public transport to major travel hubs. An Airbus from Euston Square travels to Heathrow Airport in just 30 minutes, Euston Square tube station services the Circle Metropolitan and Hammersmith & City lines, providing access to the City of London financial district and Paddington Station for the Heathrow Express Train, as well as many other London locales. Goodge Street tube station is also a five-minute walk away, which services the Northern line, which takes you directly to Waterloo for overground travel throughout the UK and the South Bank exhibition centres.
Guests should be forewarned that the apartments are fairly basic and some guests have reported missing amenities on arrival, o a quick itinerary check is advised when checking in. Despite this, the apartments are offered at a reasonable rate and are extremely convenient for sight seeing, so they are a good option for those on a budget and those who want a bit more flexibility during their stay.
