Within walking distance are such major attractions as the South Bank, Borough Food Market, the Tate Modern, Shakespeare's Globe Theatre, the Millennium Bridge to St Pauls Cathedral, the financial City of London, Tower Bridge. 5-10 minutes on the Jubilee Line will bring you to the West End, Buckingham Palace and St James Park/Green Park, the Ritz, Piccadilly, Soho etc.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Hello John and a Happy New Year to you!



We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at [ID 162500] and would very much like to include the apartment in our plans for future stays in London. We would also like to compliment [welcome staff] for the excellent way she handled our check in and provision of additional bedding when my family came to stay for a couple of nights.

This was a great place to stay with family

  • 4 of 5
This was very clean, within walking distance to Borough Market and really quick walk to the trains. It was just as advertised and very convenient. Great place to stay with family with 2 bedrooms and 2 baths. The only drawback is it was summer and no AC. It was noisy when the bars get out. But otherwise it was really great.

Owner's Response: There IS an air conditioning unit in the livingroom, just to plug in and turn on. It can vent through the smaller kitchen window. It is a substantial unit, this traveller seems not to have realised what it was. The livingroom is south facing with glass balcony doors, which is why we have the air conditioner and also window film which reduces sun heat by 60%. The trick is to keep the doors and window covers closed during the hottest part of the day - the afternoon. The evenings always cool down and the sun is indirect. This is important, but unfortunately people come in from the hot weather, having walked and exercised, and rather than slowing down and relaxing, they think, gosh (outside) it's hot, better open the windows..., or else they leave the blinds and windows open in the morning when it's cool and then are out for the afternoon when it's hot. The sun especially heats up the interior like a battery charger and that heat is slow to dissipate in the evening. It can be difficult to convince a group of several people just off a long flight that it is a good idea to keep the windows closed in the afternoons. By evening, it is almost too late as it is slow to cool. Except for the AC unit. It helps to know to use the AC machine in the corner. Though if you are targeting say 20C with the AC machine and it is 22C outside, it also makes sense to keep the windows closed, otherwise you're just warming the air you've just cooled. Now, if you leave the bedroom windows open and go to bed at 11-11.30pm, of course you'll hear the bubble of any conversation and any car that goes past. Note that Swan Street is a cul de sac. We have 'Boris' bikes on the street, and the pub at the corner is subject to normal licencing laws about hours of trading. If there was ongoing complaints, it would not be licensed. However, as I say, to block out almost all noise, the trick is to keep the flat cool during the afternoon, then you can close the bedroom patio door in the evening and draw the heavy interlined curtains for a quiet night. Even if the flat became warm, you can open the windows on the opposite side of the flat in the livingroom which faces the courtyard, and plug in the AC unit, set to target a temperature of about 18-20C and it will turn off naturally as the night is cooler but you get the circulation from the fan also. In short, on arrival or later by email or phone, just ask the owner for some advice on this and we'll point out anything you need.

Excellent flat for families or groups of up to 6

  • 5 of 5
Although we only spent a few hours in the apartment we immediately had the feeling we had made the perfect choice for our short stay in London. The flat is in a very good location, a 1 min. walk from the Borough underground at children's pace. Besides, it has literally everything you might need for much longer periods, it is perfectly mantained and offers plenty of space for families with up to 4 children or small groups. The "reception"-lady, Yukiko, was also very kind, so: No doubt we will try to come back in case we need a place in London.

Accurate description of the apt., however.......

  • 4 of 5
Our family (parents and 3 children ages 18, 20, and 23) rented this apt. for 6 nights in mid July. As stated in our rental agreement, we called upon landing in London and easily met to obtain the key and make payment. The apt. was just as the pictures presented it to be, very bright and comfortable. The Tube station is a short walk and convenient to everything---we reached most sightseeing destinations within 10-15 min. The building and apt. can only be accessed by a key---great security. The apt. is located on the 2nd floor and easily reached by an elevator when necessary. Additionally, the area surrounding the apt. felt very safe; we never were concerned with our safety. There are two small markets within 5-10 min. walk and Dominoes pizza even delivers to the building. The apt. had WiFi and satellite TV, great amenities. During our stay, the temperatures were quite hot, so we would need to sleep with the windows and patio doors open. Because of this, bright grounds lighting shone directly into the apartment and it was extremely noisy due to a hostel (with connecting bar) located at the end of the block. Many nights people were partying until well after midnight. Because no fans were provided with the apt., opening windows was the only option for trying to stay somewhat cool for sleeping. Additionally, we contacted the apt. management after the first day because the shower in the second bathroom would not drain properly; you had to turn the water off and on to keep the shower from overflowing. They were very prompt in responding to this problem; however, the drain did not improve and there was no follow up by the mgmt. company.

Owner's Response: Within 5 minutes walk is London Bridge tube entrance. On the way is Sainsbury Local and Tesco Metro is within 2 minutes walk. There is an air conditioner unit in the apartment, which works best with the windows closed, and these are double glazed. There is one pub nearby but the road is a cul de sac, so no through traffic: noise would be occasional only. Summer parties are however a risk in any residential estate. The drain was treated (apartment has two showers) and seemed OK when done. We do not live on site so would need guest feedback to further 'follow up' something that appeared to be OK.

Ideal location. Excellent local amenities

  • 5 of 5
Ideal property as a base for sightseeing not far from a mainline and Underground station. A number of tourist 'places to visit' within walking distance. Several local restaurants & pubs and a grocery shop over the road.

Apartment would appear to be recently refurbished to a high standard. Property Manager very friendly and amenable.

Not suitable for people with walking difficulties as it is on the 2nd floor but was perfect for us (2 adults and 2 boys aged 17 & 16).

It was truely my home away from home.

  • 5 of 5
My friends and I stayed in this lovely flat in May 2008. The owner was very friendly and helpful. All descriptions are completely accurate. We were met and given helpful information on the flat and surrounding areas. The property was clean and well-maintained. This was a great location for us to just hop on the tube to easily get to our sight seeing for the day. If I visit london again I will make every attempt possible to stay here again. I would recommend this flat to anyone.

A great place to start a walk and a very 'strategic' location to base a holiday.... Nearby landmarks all along the South Bank include the Borough Food Market, Southwark Cathedral, the Tate Modern Gallery of Modern Art, the Shakespeare Globe Theatre, the Millennium Bridge, linking to St Pauls Cathedral. The area doesn't have many clothing shops and department stores, but London Bridge Jubilee Line has a direct link to Bond St etc.

Other Activities: Two gyms are nearby, one has daily membership, the other has monthly membership and pool. Bikram Yoga studio in Magdalen Street. Plenty of restaurants in the area. Southwark Playhouse theatre and Globe Theatre within a short walk.
