Our family of 4 stayed here and loved everything about it. Mike Felix was at the front desk to welcome us and he was charming and extremely helpful. Bridgestreet has very good employees! Our apartment was huge, 2 bedrooms, 2 full baths a large kitchen and terrific living room. Everything in the apartment was new, clean and working. The location is fabulous. It was a bit noisy in the early morning because of delivery trucks below our window. It's close to St Pauls and the tube. Plenty of good food shopping so we saved money by eating in our apartment for a few meals. There is a wonderful bakery down the street and the 'Bengal', again down the street, had the best Indian food and service I've ever had. Bridgestreet was wonderful to work with and they gave us great directions and help whenever we needed it. I think these apartments are the best way to travel now.

where to start! I travel to London a lot for business and this IS the place I prefer the most. One of the best properties by Bridgestreet in London. Honestly to me it feels like a 5* hotel. Its 1 min walk from Thames, 2 min walk from tube station and around 10 min walk from Covent Garden. What else do you want!!! Have already stayed in many Bridgestreet apartments, this one is the best

The King’s Wardrobe is a recently renovated corporate apartment complex, just a 1 minute walk from St. Paul’s cathedral. It’s located just off quaint Carter Lane, a narrow old street filled with coffee shops, restaurants, and pubs. My husband, son and I stayed for 7 nights on a recent business trip to London. We found the location to be very convenient, with ample food options, grocery stores within walking distance, access to tourist sites like the cathedral and the Millennium Bridge, which was a 3 minute walk away. Bus lines ran in front of the cathedral. However, Blackfriar’s station (the closest) is closed for renovation until 2011, so you’ll need to walk to the station prior or after to access the District/Circle lines.

We stayed in apartment A0.5 on the ground floor, just around the corner from reception. It was a large one bedroom that more than amply stored our luggage as accommodated a crib. The flat had a full bath with both a large shower and a luxuriously deep bath tub. There was also a 2nd half bath just behind the kitchen. Toiletries were provided.

The bedroom had a queen sized bed with lots of closet space, night stands, and a chest of drawers with a small TV on top.

The kitchen was large, with a full sized refrigerator/freezer, laundry machine, dishwasher, oven, stove, and dishes to use. A basic welcome kit of simple groceries were provided. A few tablets for the dishwasher were provided, but if you needed more than 3, you had to buy more yourself at the grocery store. The kitchen led into the dining/living area, which had a reasonably sized table that seated 6 people. The living room had a loveseat and chair, small tv, coffee table, and sideboard.

The condition of the apartment was very good – everything was clean and modern and in working order. Cleaning service is weekly, and ours came on Wednesday.

The service of the front desk staff was generally helpful – one gentleman even helped us sort out an issue with the telephone in our room late at night. The staff seemed to recognize us and were very friendly when we came and went. And we were given a one hour late checkout graciously.

Things that could have been better:
1) The walls between rooms are paper thin. The first 2 nights, our next door neighbor made phone calls home to the US after midnight, and we could every word she said. It was as if she was in the room with us.
2) They charged us for a crib. In the 22 months since my son was born, we’ve stayed in over 15 hotels and corporate apartments in several countries in Europe, Asia, and the Americas, and this is the only one that charged us for a crib. And even with that, we had to bring our own crib sheet, as that would have been yet another charge.
3) The kitchen did not come with a sponge and dish soap, which was rather annoying when we arrived late at night and needed to clean sippy cups from our trip. We asked at the front desk, and were given directions to a grocery store.
4) The mattress (both for the queen bed and the crib) was very thin and not very comfortable.

We would stay here again if we felt we needed a place with a kitchen and laundry, and we did really enjoy the location. However, if traveling solo, I’d consider returning back to a hotel instead.

We spent 10 days in a large 2 bedroom flat. The place was very clean and modern.
The service was great. Exactly what we needed for our vacation in London.
Just perfect (there's no A/C which for us was no issue as weather was great).

True to the statement in my previous review, I chose Kings Wardrobe for a follow up stay in May. Once again, I had excellent communcation with the General Manager to ensure my booking was in place and I was interested to see if the standard was consistently high.

This time I stayed in a 1 bedroom apartment and it was just as nice as the first stay. The helpful welcome pack makes a lot of difference. The location is wonderful, close to St Pauls and walking distance to the financial district with lots of local restaurants and coffee shops in easy walking distance. The area felt safe and secure and the welcome from the desk staff was again friendly and warm. I will continue to recommend and return to Kings Wardrobe.
