TWO BEDROOM APT

City of London Apartment Rental Photos and Description

Luxury self catering apartments in the centre of London - Sleeps Up to 5

We are pleased to offer two luxury self-catering apartments in this Edwardian building, located close by the River Thames, with the world-famous Tower of London literally across the road, and the iconic Tower Bridge as our backdrop.

Our two-bedroom apartment can comfortably sleep up to 6 people, Plus an additional travel cot - appropriate for a baby up to 18 months’ old - available on request. Our one-bedroom apartment is bright and spacious, accommodating up to 5 people, again with travel cot available on request.

Both apartments are elegantly furnished, providing high-quality amenities and excellent value for money, given our prestigious

The Tower Hill location is ideal for both business and leisure visitors alike. For business visitors, the City of London financial district is on our doorstep. For leisure visitors, Tower Hill’s environs are steeped in history, from Roman times onwards, through the invasion of William the Conquerer, to the terrible exploits of Jack the Ripper, a short distance east in Whitechapel. We then come right up to the present-day architecture of the Shard and the Gherkin, both of which are within less than a mile’s radius and easily accessible, by public transport, taxi or on foot.

The area is well served by literally 100's of local restaurants to suit all budgets and sophisticated wine bars and London pubs. Sight seeing and the Theatres of the WestEnd are easily accessible by tube, bus or short cab ride. We aim to ensure that our apartments feel like your home away from home and our location next to the majestic Tower of London will leave you with fantastic memories and wanting to return!

The views from each room within these elegant apartments located on the 2nd and 3rd floors of this small, quiet and exclusive residential building are spectacular. The nearby Thames path enable guests to take a relaxing walk along the embankment and take in magnificent views as they walk to nearby St Paul's Cathedral, The Tate Modern, Covent Garden and the West End beyond.

Tower Hill has an abundance of high quality restaurants, which cater to every palate and every wallet. A short stroll past the 'Beef Eaters' (guards of the Tower and the Crown Jewels) you will find St Katherine's Dock filled with swanky private yachts as well a wide selection of trendy eateries. Just across Tower Bridge at Butlers Wharf you will find Sir Terrance Conran's famous group of restaurants including 'Pont De La Tour' (Fish) and the 'Chop House' (contemporary English food). Both these locations offer alfresco dining by the river for that perfect romantic and memorable evening spent watching the world go by with friends and family.

Perfect for sightseeing and business trips: From our apartment you can easily visit all the famous sites without need for a car. Trafalgar Square, Big Ben and the Houses of Parliament are approximately a 7 minute journey by Tube or 20 minutes by bus. This means that guests can easily access to the main tourist attractions such as St Paul's cathedral, Buckingham Palace, Trafalgar Square, Big Ben and the Houses of Parliament, as well as the National Gallery and British museum etc. Harrods and the hustle and bustle of all shopping along Oxford, Regent and Bond Streets are also a short journey by tube or bus but Tower Hill and the City also provide an extensive choice of shopping close by. The tour buses pass outside our front door if you want the thrill of seeing the sights from the famous London Red Bus!

The apartments are easily accessible from London's main airports (Heathrow, Gatwick, Luton and Stansted) by Tube, rail or bus within an hour.... and London City airport is just 25 mins using the Dockland Light railway

City of London / Tower of London Apartment Spectac

  • 5 of 5
Description was right on. Apartment was immaculate, well-maintained, nicely stocked, wonderful location. Right next to underground station making it easily accessible to both Heathrow and any location in London. Not only would we recommend, but we would rent again the next time we are in London. Nice restaurants locally and grocery store around the block.

Lovely apartment - excellent location

  • 5 of 5
This two-bedroom, 2-bath, well-appointed apartment is a true gem - comfortably elegant, very clean, complete with everything one would need and the location is beyond words! We loved it and it really made our vacation so relaxed and enjoyable. The owner provided very helpful information leading up to our trip and was very professional. Our family (2 adults, 2 teens) loved staying here; we would certainly choose the apartment again. We were greeted by the owner's assistant upon our arrival - she showed us how all the appliances worked and gave us helpful information regarding grocery shopping, restaurants, local transport, and purchased a few food items for us which was a welcome surprise on a Sunday afternoon. She was lovely and we knew we could call upon her if we needed anything during the week - but everything was perfect - we had no need to contact the owner or her for anything. Across the street from the Tower Hill tube stop and the Tower of London - the location was ideal and very convenient for us as tourists. There are many places to eat nearby so we did not use the kitchen in the apartment much but it is well-suited for cooking. We found the location to be very safe and family-friendly - a bit removed from the touristy bustle of the city - which we found to be a very pleasant and delightful characteristic of the apartment. Also - breathtaking view of Tower of London - especially at night! Absolutely five stars!!

Owner's Response: Thank you so much for taking the time to write a glowing review. It does make the hard work of our team worthwhile to hear that you had such a good time and enjoyed our apartment. We do feel that our apartment offers the best of both worlds - the comfort of a well equipped home-from-home and also being right in the heart of London, without the stress of living in the West-end. We look forward to welcoming you back to London for your future trips

Three of us were very impressed with Martin's apartment. The unit was as described and all was fine. We made use of the washing machine & dishwasher which were very easy to work. The position and view from the window wonderful! Tower Hill tube was just so easy to use and get us around all of London. The DLR is just as handy as are the buses and hop on hop off. The food scene is plenty with our favourite being the Minories near the DLR rather than the noisy Liberty Bounds pub downstairs.

All went very well with the booking and payments, I had paid in full 12 months in advance. Jane the agent gave us the run down and had stocked the fridge with milk, butter, jam and bread for breakfast. After a 13 hour flight it was much welcomed! Easily recommended.

Lovely, but better for 4

  • 5 of 5
We were one adult and four teens and the spaces felt a bit cramped, so be prepared for that if you are all adult sized. One contributory factor was the sofa bed which was hard to raise and lower so we left it open a lot.

That is pretty much my only complaint however.

Location is great and view obviously unbeatable. Beds and linens comfortable.

I did hear the tube way beneath us but it didn't disturb my sleep and my kids never mentioned it so I don't think it's an issue.

With no booklet I had a little trouble getting the washing machine to start. Worked it out on second attempt. There were only two detergent pods which was a nuisance for five people since we travel light and wash.

OTOH, Fresh milk, bread, juice, butter and cookies were much appreciated. We were a bit short on liquid soap around the place but we managed so that was only a tiny niggle.

En suite shower in master was one of the best I have ever used in UK. A bit odd that you have to step up into the shower But it's a generous size with super flow which is more important.

I cooked in the kitchen and had no issues. Well supplied and appliances worked.

The flat is warm and we had hot weather so we opened windows a lot - the one in the twin bedroom seemed to be stuck but I created cross draughts with the other windows. Being London we had no problem with any bugs flying in.

There are several pubs and pizza and sandwich shops nearby (pubs closed on Sundays sometimes) and I was pleasantly surprised by the choices and the multiple small supermarkets so close to the City.

We left London by car and the Enterprise car rental at Tower Bridge is under 10 minutes and very walkable even with luggage in tow. The M11 and M25 are pretty much a straight shot East from the Enterprise office. It was only a 50 pound drop fee to return it to LHR when we flew home - well worth it.

Owner's Response: Thanks for your review. We are delighted that you had such a great time. We have many families of five staying in our apartments but its usually two adults (who take the kingsize bed in the main ensuite bedroom) while the 2 teenagers/children share the second bedroom (2 single beds) and the other uses the sofa bed in our (20ft x 20ft) living room. Like yourself many families appreciate the 'front row' historical location with added amenities of a fully equipped kitchen for a third of the price of the equivalent accommodation in nearby hotel rooms. I'm sorry that you could not find the instructions, which are stored in the cupboard in the kitchen. I think it would be helpful if these are left out on the bench on the first day in future. We are pleased that everything went so well and look forward to seeing you on your next visit.
