The master bedroom is large, and the downstairs living space is open-plan and streamlined, making it easy to keep an eye on the kids. The property is fresh and functional, and most importantly, in the heart of London, with fantastic access to tube and bus routes and all the major sites. The living room opens onto a secluded and peaceful cobbled mews street, just a stone’s throw from the bustling West End. All guests receive a Handy smartphone during their stay, offering access to local deals plus free local and international calls and unlimited data.

Why Kids Love it

Things to Know

Minimum stay: 2 days. There is 1 straight staircase up to the first floor, with 2 sides of protection. Stair gates can be provided. The living room has double stable doors; children should be supervised when they are open as they open directly to the pavement and road. Parking is available for one vehicle.

A welcome basket of goodies, including tea, coffee, sugar, oil, herbs and spices is provided. Towels and linen are provided. A housekeeping service is also available on request.

About the Location

The residence is in Bloomsbury, WC1, in the heart of London and well located for exploring the city’s museums, shops, theatres, restaurants, parks, the river and more. There are easy transport links nearby including Russell Square tube station, 1 street away. King's Cross, Euston and International St Pancras Stations are a 5-minute taxi ride or 15-minute walk away. There are plenty of playgrounds and green spaces nearby along with cafés, restaurants and supermarkets. Car rental is not essential with great transport links but there is on-street parking outside (very rare in central London). Heathrow is 50-minutes away by car.

Style Notes

Bright and modern. Furniture is functional and stylish with beds designed for comfort and layered with Merino wool, white cotton felt and silk. Ample windows and skylights in the bedrooms, and the double stable doors, make the property feel airy and light. Bedrooms are on the first floor, so once kids are asleep, noise from downstairs should not disturb them.

Born and bred in London and married to a Brazilian! My husband Caio and I met in Switzerland while both studying Hotel Management at Les Roches School of Hotel Management. We shared the same vision of innovating within the industry and making it a better place to work and improve guest experiences. This led to us establishing our own company in 2012 and Merino Hospitality was born. That was followed one year later by the birth of our first son Jonas, so it was a busy period in the Merino household! We all love to travel and Jonas has already been on 12 flights across the Atlantic in his 2 short years! Our favourite destination as a family was Anna Maria Island in Florida and as a couple we loved Singapore. Jonas is mad about anything to do with Minions and the wall stickers in the secret kids den are a tribute to him! Currently his favourite thing to do is going to the farm to see all the animals and being read to - his favourite story is The Jungle Book! We joined Kid & Coe to offer our house to families seeking a city break in London in a family friendly environment. Having a child of our own helps us to understand what parents (and children) look for during a holiday. Hotels do not offer the space for family socialising and work out more expensive as you often need multiple rooms. Plus, who wants to be tucked up in bed at 7pm with the kids, all cramped in the same room, when you could be having a glass of wine and watching a movie while they are sound asleep - the perfect wind down after a day sightseeing in our great capital! Welcome to the world of Merino Hospitality, our doors are open to welcome you - step into the adventure!

Bloomsbury, London

High culture, private gardens and the city’s best playground

Refined Bloomsbury is a romantic take on London, all colonnaded streets, private gardens and black railings. Get to know it a little and you’ll find culture, intrigue and excitement, from the playground at Coram’s Fields to exhibitions at the British Museum and British Library, and Harry Potter’s platform 9 ¾ at King’s Cross station. Quirky cafes, independent booksellers and specialist food shops make it a fun place to shop in the heart of the city.
