A bit late, but we spent 10 days in an amazing apartment in London booked through www.londonconnection.com
We stayed in a 2 bedroom apartment on Pall Mall, everything within walking distance, great apartment for $250 US per night. Having always stayed in places like Lancaster Gate, Knightsbridge, Bayswater, it was FAR better to be right in the centre. Love Christmas in London.
2-167 Pall Mall | St. James

Lots of other apartments on their site - keen for our next trip.

Thanks for the info. It looks great. Will bookmark the company for our next trip, whenever that may be.

Thank you for your recommendation. I just booked for next October US$277 per night. My ‘new’ glasses are hopeless, still difficult to read with. I put in incorrect month. Sent email right away with correction. Expecting decline, will do reservation again. Anyway many thanks.

Yes I did, based on your recommendation. How close is Oxford & bond streets. Are there nice cafes, pubs close? I’ll have to buy another lonely planet book. I keep buying them for a trip, then have to leave it due to luggage.

The accommodation is very close to the intersection of Pall Mall and Lower Regent St. So, a very short walk to Regent St proper and then depending on where you are going on Oxford St, you either follow Regent St or cut through Soho.
As for nice pubs, we loved the Wellington on the Strand. A bit of a walk but worth it.
We enjoyed the Red Lion in Crown Passage, wonderful history and mostly local clientele. Great fun.
Have a great time, it is a great spot to stay in London.

I have been looking for an apartment for when we go to London for the 2020 May Chelsea Flower Show - I have been unable to book that far ahead at Cheval Apartments, but I have found a nice apartment on London Connections ! I am pretty sure we will book it.

I’m more excited about my upcoming London Connections apartment in October than anything else (other than visiting with daughter & family) about the trip. I always stay in a hotel. I will ‘pretend’ I’m a local. Booking through the site was easy.

Please report back how it all goes. Are you going to use their pick up service ? :) I have just booked one of their apartments for May 2020.

On arrival I’m staying 3 nights at lhr Hilton terminal 4 to help with jet lag, perhaps day trip to Windsor, then train to Salisbury. Unsure about return departing to lhr as time to check out of apartment does not match with check in for QF2. It also doesn’t match time for chauffeur pick up.

just returned from London trip. I was satisfied with apartment through London Connection in Pall Mall. When I entered into hall, I became aware photos of apartment displayed on site were more generous than the reality. I hadn’t realised lounge, dining & kitchen was in one area. It certainly wasn’t as cramped as some of their other property photos look. 2 sofas in lounge, 4 seater round dining table, kitchen along wall with small fridge, full oven & 4 hot plates, combined washer/dryer (couldn’t figure how to make dryer work, drying rack worked fine), no microwave which I found disappointing. But sufficient counter space. Master bedroom was very large, shame about foam mattress on top of main mattress, extremely uncomfortable, built in robes,, large chest of drawers, small glass table & chair, 2 side tables with lamp at bed. 2nd smaller bedroom with 2 single bed, small wardrobe, drawers, better mattress but difficult for me to get out due to being low on floor. Bathroom with combined bath shower, water was hot, just not much came out, space was compact but fine. It had the heated towel rack.
Building very secured. 2 upmarket clothing stores underneath male & female. The area was close to everything I wanted to do ie Regenr Street, convent garden, theatres, national gallery, green, Hyde & Kensington gardens.& just around corner to Piccadilly Circus & tube.
They have a driver you pay to pick up at LHR. They also have a meet & greet at apartment on arranged arrival at apartment. Their written information make a bit of a deal about this service but then give you prices for a tip. I thought this was cheeky due to making such a big deal about their meet & greet service they implied was something that set them apart from other rental apartments.
lots of cafes, pubs, restaurants close. I would stay again.
