Once a famous home for Britain's newspapers, Fleet Street runs through the City of London's historic core and has a likeable character with many venerable buildings and streets filled with lawyers and office-workers. Weekends are quiet but you are not isolated - walk south and you'll soon reach the Embankment, while to the north Clerkenwell is an enjoyable neighbourhood to explore with good restaurants.
The property has 12 studios and a one-bedroom apartment arranged over five floors. Inside you'll find lightly-coloured wooden flooring, a cheery red chair and rug, a comfortable queen-size bed, a large grey sofa and a well-equipped kitchen with a dishwasher and washing machine. The bathroom is large with a shower and the whole apartment feels fresh, clean and in good condition.
There is a lift but no reception - guests are given an access code to enter the building and pick up keys. The staircases are brightly lit and clean.
Eating and drinking
You have full kitchen facilities, plus there is a welcome pack of tea, coffee and fresh milk in the fridge. Fleet Street has many cafés, pubs and sandwich bars, and you can stock up at nearby supermarkets.
Guests are provided with comprehensive instructions for using the apartment, and there is a duty manager on call. Cleaning is only provided if you stay longer than a week.
