Viridian Apartments Bloomsbury nestles within a cultural hub of Central London, with The British Museum and Royal Opera House nearby as well as notable landmarks including Covent Garden Market and large garden squares such as Russell Square and Bloomsbury Square. The location is neighboured by many pubs, restaurants, theatres and outstanding shopping opportunities.
The building offers studio and one-bedroom apartments, beautifully decorated and appointed. The on-trend exposed brickwork (in some apartments) high spec furnishings and attention to detail in the décor have received many positive reviews from guests.
Studios are modest in size and come with basic kitchenettes (please see photos).
The one-bedroom apartments offer a kitchen area with a full-sized fridge/freezer, washing machine, hob, oven and microwave. All apartments are air-conditioned, individually furnished and beautifully decorated.
Each apartment features free WiFi and free wired Internet, plus a rainfall shower, complimentary toiletries, hairdryer, iron/ironing board and a Smart TV with digital channels.
Two underground stations are in easy walking distance: Tottenham Court Road (5 mins) and Holborn (9 mins). Both stations offer excellent transport links around the capital. The major train stations of London Paddington, King’s Cross and St Pancras International can be reached in 10-15 minutes via the underground, for easy and accessible onward travel to the regions, Heathrow Airport and European destinations via the Eurostar.
Location: Coptic Street
Resting within the heart of London, Bloomsbury is an alluring microcosm of park squares, museums, eclectic eateries and independent bookshops; one can appreciate why The Bloomsbury Group circle of artists adopted the neighbourhood as their home back in the first half of the 20th century. A certain atmosphere permeates the streets: long lunches in healthy-eating havens, relaxed reading on benches, strolling through parks with an artisan coffee in hand. Elegant Georgian townhouses line the leafy streets and there is something rather magical about walking out the front door of our apartments here and being welcomed by the world-renowned, iconic sight of The British Museum.
Shopping gems of character and charm speckle the immediate map of Bloomsbury, with exquisite modern craft boutiques and interiors shops offering unique products you won’t find elsewhere, and high street fashion and lifestyle stores in the Brunswick Centre. Of course, independent bookshops are abundant here: try London Review for everything from classics to contemporary fiction (and a slice of cake while you’re at it!) or Persephone Books which reprints books mostly by women writers from the twentieth century. Nearby Soho also has great independent retailers, such as Alex Eagle Studio where you’ll find a beautifully honed edit of hand-selected fashion, furniture, art, design, photography, ceramics and rare books. Carnaby is one of London’s trendiest shopping destinations. Choose Love is so wonderfully innovative - here you can buy real items and life-saving interventions which will go to refugees and displaced people across the world.
Epitomising Bloomsbury’s beautiful kaleidoscope of cultures, history and philosophies, an eclectic mix of cuisines can be discovered near to our apartments. Oscillate between the informal coffees and cakes, the decadent French delicacies and the indulgent British dishes. Blending the hip, the fine and the wholesome, you will be spoiled for choice. Pancake fans should check out My Old Dutch, five minutes’ walk from our apartments, where sweet and savoury options are perfect for brunch or lunch. For dinner, try Mongolian-inspired Happy Lamb Hot Pot or Eastern Turkish cuisine at TAS Restaurant, both a short walk away. A feast for both eyes and stomach, Circolo Popolare on Rathbone Place brings a sunny Sicilian trattoria to London; the restaurant’s interior is lined with thousands of bottles of wine, while the terrace is perfect for summer evenings (oh and the Italian food on offer is just lovely!). Like small plates? Honey & Co is run by a wife-and-husband team serving up delicious Middle Eastern food – perfect any time of the day. And in nearby Oxford Circus, 28°-50° is an elegant restaurant offering modern European cuisine alongside some incredible wines.
The Shaftesbury Theatre and the Dominion Theatre are both less than 10 minutes’ walk from our serviced apartments, so theatre fans can catch an evening show after dinner. For no-frills comedy head to the Top Secret Comedy Club (five minutes’ walk away); this low-ceilinged basement bar hosts a regular programme of stand-up and improv shows, and you may even be lucky enough to see big names in the world of comedy trying out new material here. Or perhaps you might want to try your hand at some darts, with Flight Club Bloomsbury only seven minutes’ walk away. For a more traditional drink, there are plenty of bars and pubs where wine connoisseurs can while away the evenings in twinkly vine-clad terraces and real ale enthusiasts can relish a pint in the gardens and terraces that occupy the back streets. Check out Wine & Charcuterie for a classy drink in unique surrounds – the bar is located in a refurnished Grade II listed Victorian water closet! Or head to Waxy O’Connor’s in nearby Soho; London’s biggest Irish bar is actually a labyrinth of four unique bars over six levels, with weekly live music.
