A Very Special Place Information


WE DO NOT ACCEPT BOOKINGS of any kind so DO NOT BOOK THIS PLACE SINCE IT IS NOT REALLY A B&B! If it were (but it is not), it would be the best in London and we would tell everyone that we thrive to be wonderful hosts and simply love taking care of our guests. This quirky converted chapel, conveniently situated in central London, and only a throw away from the Eurostar, is actually eviivo's working office. The property is within walking distance of wonderful pubs, bistros and restaurants, and the famous Exmouth market and only two tube stops away from the heart of the West End. Our sumptuous VIRTUAL BEDROOMS have a unique personality and offer all the amenities expected by the most discerning traveler. They ooze luxury and comfort and their decor is inspired by the golden age of entertainment. A self-contained unit, adjacent to the main building, has been converted into a luxury 3 bedroom self-catering apartment called the Dressing Room. A cosy Reading Room awaits guests who seek some quiet time and the Casting Studio offers a small self-service bar open 24*7. eviivo management serve an award-winning breakfast every morning in the Tiffany wBreakfast Room. Choose from our extensive range, from our traditional home-cooked English breakfast, the Continental Delight with the most delicious butter croissants, to the Fisherman's breakfast with haddock or smoked salmon, the Farmer's breakfast with organic Wiltshire ham, or the Healthy Start with home made yogurt and the best Swiss muesli to be found in London. Our Very Special Place is surrounded by the Joseph Grimaldi Park which provides access to basket-ball and tennis courts, and is the start of London's greenest bike ride. The property offers free parking and is outside the congestion charge. The basement houses a fitness room, a game room, a steam-room and showers. So why not join us there every evening between 5 and 7pm, for a game of pools, tennis table or a jukebox.

Special Hosts

Hello! That's us, Anne and Simon - we love our guests and will do all we can to make sure they have a special stay and a great time in London! We know all the local hotspots….and can help you with getting tickets to our famous West End shows. We started this little business 4 years ago and it has been quite an adventure! We love sports, cycling and keep sheep in the park. Our favorite mascot is Wooly. He loves to dress up and for a sheep, he's not sheepish at all! Our passion? Cooking the most perfect delicious breakfast in London! We like to surprise and we think that good company is always fun! And there is a bit of a story about our old building... In his time, Joseph Grimaldi was an entertainer with a wonderful sense of fun, and some people say that his friendly ghost is still haunting our building ... we have not met him yet but there is no doubt that the place oozes warmth and fun! So come and visit !….

A Very Special Place has been welcoming guests since June 2012
