City of London Apartment Rental Photos and Description

1 bedroom, 1 bathroom, sleeps 5 maximum

Featured in New York Times Travel Section!

Just across the street from the Tower of London & next to beautiful Trinity Square Gardens. Just 1 min. walk from Tower Hill tube stop & 3 min. from Tower Gateway DLR, you'll find this flat the ideal base from which to explore London! Many points of historic interest are nearby, including the Tower of London, Tower Bridge, & London Bridge. Located in 'The City' or financial district, the area is very safe, even for walking around late at night.

Due to flat's proximity to the tube station, you can hop on & quickly be near any major attraction in central London: Buckingham Palace, Churchill's War Rooms, Whitehall, Parliament, Big Ben, Kensington Palace. Also nearby (meaning under 15 min. walk) is St Paul's Cathedral, Tower Bridge, London Bridge, St Katherine's Dock, Shad Thames (riverwalk area with more restaurants/pubs/shops), Sir Francis Drake's ship, Shakespeare's Globe Theater, Tate Museum, etc.

Amenities & Rental Policy: Inside the flat:

This flat is equipped with a microwave, oven and stove, fridge and freezer, coffee maker, clothing washer and dryer, TV and DVD player, DVD library (40-50 movies), CD/tape player/radio, CD music library (eclectic mix from classical to country music to classic rock to Glenn Miller to opera to jazz to R&B), small book library (about 40 books), and wireless DSL. The flat rental includes all linens, towels, and cutlery. The flat rental includes all linens, towels, and cutlery. Also included are free phone calls from the flat to the US, Canada, Australia, New Zealand and most of Europe, so you can call your family and friends at home, or make additional travel plans for free from the flat.

A four night minimum is usually held to, unless I there happens to be 2-3 nights of availability between other guests with longer stays.

This is a strictly non-smoking apartment.

Sleeping arrangements: Sleeping Arrangements:

This is a one bedroom flat and is perfect for a single or couple, but can also accommodate a small family, if necessary, for a maximum occupancy of five persons. There is a UK Double bed upstairs (similar in size to a US Queen) (see photos). Downstairs there is a very large, comfy sofa which is six foot two inches between armrests and which makes up nicely into a twin/single bed if desired to accommodate one person (there is no pullout bed in this sofa). Two more persons can be accommodated on a $400 queen size “Aero-Bed” (an expensive type of air mattress). (I need to emphasize that, at 500 square feet, the most the flat can accommodate is a small family of up to five persons - it is simply too small to be used to a group of five adults.)

Website for many more photos & further information: www.trinitysquareflat.com

It contains dozens of photos of the flat and virtually everything within walking distance, so you can get a real feel for the flat and its exact location. The site also contains much information on everything from local restaurants, pubs and shops, to local historic sites, to weather, to relevant maps (London Underground and local grocery stores, for instance) and location information, etc.

We had a fantastic week-long holiday at Paul's flat. The location is ideal, so close to the Tower and the Tower Hill tube stop. There were only 2 of us so there was plenty of room. Many previous guests have left guidebooks and maps which help in your planning. Make sure you get an "Oyster" card for the tube and bus fares.
We plan to go back and stay there again!

LOCATION, LOCATION, LOCATION!

My husband and I had the privilege of staying at this flat last November and loved it. This was our first trip to London and we found, from the beginning of our trip to the end, that the detailed information given about travel and the area in general as well as the fabulous location of Trinity Square was perfect for our first trip over the pond!

The flat is cozy, clean and quiet. Even though the area is bustling during the day, at night it was amazingly still and we slept great. Having a full kitchen was a great asset and we were able to start and end our busy days by relaxing as if we were in our own home. There are also plenty of dining options within walking distance.

I loved being right next to the historic Tower of London and the Tower Bridge. It should be noted that you cannot see the view of the Thames and bridge from the flat window, as the flat faces the historic 10 Trinity Square (former Port Authority) on the opposite side.
There was a plethora of things to see and visit right outside the door. The owner of the flat, Paul, gives fabulous historical information and walking tours for sights right outside the front door as well as other major historical locations to visit. We found ourselves relying on his expertise quite a bit as we planned our sight seeing in the city. It was like having our own personal travel guide.

In all, I can’t recommend this place highly enough! We will definitely stay here again our next trip to London.

PERFECT LOCATION:PERFECT STAY

  • 5 of 5
This cozy 1 bedroom is so centrally located; you would want to stay here purely for its accessibility. The flat is perfect for a single person or a couple; however, will accommodate up to five. As advertised, the flat is located just across from the Tower of London. It actually couldn’t be any closer! Nearby are several markets for groceries and sundries, and the hop-on/hop-off tour buses are located just across the street, as well as the riverboat tours, and underground too. From the Trinity Square location you can get anywhere in the city in minutes, and will be spoiled for choice in terms of transport. The descriptions and photos provided by the owner are accurate. It's a lovely flat in a great, and in a very safe location.
Far more reasonably priced and comfortable than a hotel, you won’t be “nickeled and dimed” for the little things. Other than its location, this studio offers an efficient kitchen, washing machine, all the appliances and cookery that you will need. Included is wi-fi, DVD, cable (not that you’ll be watching television excessively), and free telephone service to the US and Canada!
Prior to our arrival, dealing with the owner (Paul) was a pure delight. He is very attentive to your needs, responds quickly to queries, and has a plethora of historical knowledge about the city, providing you with a many recommendations for tours, attractions, we well as neighborhood restaurants and markets.
All in all, I'd definitely stay here again, and will recommend this flat to friends and colleagues without hesitation. I can’t wait for my next trip!

GREAT LOCATION, GREAT FLAT FOR THE PRICE!

  • 4 of 5
We loved the location of the flat. Great walking distance to tower hill, tower bridge, and the tube. The flat was comfortable for the two of us. Bed was comfortable, great to have laundry facilities since we travel light. Restaurants close by were okay, but great to jump on the tube to better restaurant locations. If you needed a quick bite it sufficed, short distance to the store which was nice except Sundays everything is closed early. For the city pretty quiet except for some nights they were working construction outside the building next to us which kept us up only a couple of times. We slept well and enjoyed feeling liked we lived their. Would have been nice to have a few extra toiletries since we were staying two weeks and had to provide the last five days of our stay. Overall a great experience and loved london. Would definitely stay here again! Thank you Paul.

COMFORT AND CONVENIENCE IN TOWER HILL

  • 5 of 5
Trinity Square Flat was a wonderful base for our first visit to London. The living space and kitchen were comfortable and well appointed. We found the apartment quiet in the evening as we settled in for the night and the bedding ensured we had a restful night's sleep. The bathroom was supplied with an array of toiletries, the shower had ample water pressure and well regulated temperature. The flat was also impeccably clean and the housekeeper most gracious in showing us the workings of the few unfamiliar appliances. These were also detailed in the information binder provided by the owner. A bookshelf full of travel and history books was available to assist in planning our itinerary. The flat's location was ideal. Steps from the Tower Hill tube station, a short walk to St. Katherine's Docks and the Tower of London on your doorstep. The Ceremony of the Keys at the Tower of London is well worth investigating. For those who like their caffeine in the morning, Starbucks is located just around the corner and all grocery shopping is nearby in St.Katherine's Docks. It was a pleasure arranging our stay with Paul. We had never used VRBO before, but he made the experience very easy and we are completely sold on this service!

Car: not necessary

There are many pubs & restaurants within a 1-2 minute walk. The Hung, Drawn & Quartered pub is just across Great Tower Street next to All Hallows (church). There are 3 other pubs, a French restaurant, a Spanish restaurant, an Asian noodle place, a pizza/pasta place & a Subway sandwich shop all within a 1-2 minute walk. If you're willing to walk a bit further, you will find a seemingly endless supply of restaurants.

One not to miss is Dickens Inn (a former hanging ground for pirates) at St Katherine's Docks! The docks also host a small marina and many quaint cafes, shops & restaurants of all price ranges.

If you choose to walk east about 10-15 minutes, you'll find yourself in London's East End, & perhaps at Brick Lane which is famous for its excellent Indian food! I highly recommend the Jack the Ripper Walking Tour of the East End, held at night & starting from the Tower Hill tube, just about a minute (if that) from the flat.

Other Activities: Museums, palaces, endless historical sites
