With a crisp chill in the air and tourists season winding down, autumn is a spectacular time to visit the city of London—especially for couples. It’s officially time to get cozy. And what better place to do so than in your very own one-bedroom or studio apartment built for two? Perfectly appointed for twosomes, here’s a roundup of our very cutest and coziest London apartments for couples.
5 London Apartments For Couples
Talk about snuggly, the elegant one-bedroom one-bathroom Salisbury in South Kensington has a breakfast nook made for two, a double bed and even a little decorative fireplace to remind you that three’s a crowd.
This gorgeous little gem also has French doors swinging open to a private balcony that seems purpose-built for watching the sun set on fall evenings. Grab a comfy sweater and sit outside and watch the wind push around the leaves in the tree-lined square. Also, it’s a picture-perfect setting for a romantic dinner for two.
The Queensgate Studio Loft
Though officially sleeping three, the Queensgate Studio Loft is one of the best London apartments for couples, as it’s a small and sweet studio apartment. With an unbeatable location in the most sophisticated area of pretty South Kensington, this loft-style studio has stairs leading up to a mezzanine level, where there is a king-sized bed that sits under a frescoed ceiling!
Downstairs in the living area, there’s a loveseat that opens up into a sofa bed and also a little breakfast nook with a table seating two. Cute, compact, and creative with space, this studio serves up exactly what any couple would want for a stay in South Kensington. You’re right near tons of museums and Kensington Gardens, as well as the energetic restaurant and café scene that makes this neighborhood so livable and lively.
Fashion-forward couples will adore the fresh and modern Stanhope with pops of flair. This studio comes with a comfortable queen bed and compact kitchen, but in the heart of Kensington—surrounded by some of the city’s best restaurants—staying in for meals will be a challenge. (Still, you can always pop out for a post-dinner pint at one of the city’s many cozy pubs.)
Duos who want to stay in trendy Chelsea need to check out the Portland. With one bedroom, one bathroom and an outdoor patio with a table for two, the Portland is an easy option for two people who have an eye for quality-but-comfortable décor. (And that outdoor table just may be the cutest table for two in all of London.)
We love how the bedroom leads right outside to the private deck—a rare treat for a Chelsea apartment. Because this lovely little apartment is located on a residential street, couples will enjoy their quiet and privacy. Also, with a sleek modern kitchen, the Portland is actually one of our top picks for chefs and gourmands.
If you can tear yourself away from this apartment that checks all the boxes, Chelsea and the King’s Road is a prime shopping and dining area.
What’s not to like about the Portland?
For couples who prefer a bit more space, there is the Wellesley. Hidden away in a sleepy cobble-street mews, the warm and homely Wellesley is spread over two floors—but still cozy. On the ground floor, you can find a private courtyard garden with an inviting table and chairs. Since this apartment is right by the Duke of York Square in Sloane Square, considering popping out for the weekend fine food market. Stock up on artisan goods likes English fine wines and cheddars. The apartment’s garden cannot be beaten for a quaint al fresco meal.
Also on the ground floor, there’s a delightful living room and kitchen. Upstairs is the queen bedroom and bathroom with a bathtub. (There’s a shower too.) Though we love this as a couple-friendly apartment option, the sofa in the living room actually pulls out into a bed fitting one more person into this attractive little space. Other compelling features include the fireplace, walls of character-filled artwork and snug bookshelves, giving the Wellesley a sincere, lived-in feel.
