We'd be won over by this well-proportioned luxury flat regardless of the location, but the fact that it's in a converted period building in central London is mighty impressive. Upon entrance, guests will be greeted by an open space illuminated by tall windows on the far wall and pretty chandeliers. At the far end lies a gorgeous kitchen complete with quartz surface tops and Miele appliances. The large bedrooms both have plenty of storage space and a workspace, but it's the bathrooms that take your breath away with their frameless glass and suave grey tiling. Step out the front door and Lincoln's Inn Fields stands before you — here, there's a small square to wander about, tennis courts to book out and the inimitable Sir John Soane's Museum to look around. If a visit there gets you in the mood for more ancient artefacts, The British Museum is only ten minutes' walk up the road.
Home truths: *Guests can access the first-floor apartment via a private lift or a small flight of stairs
*The host offers twenty-four-hour assistance and a reception located in nearby Covent Garden
*There's no parking space, but there's a small car park on the other side of Lincoln's Inn Fields — Holborn underground station is only three minutes' walk away, too
