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.

Living Like a Local in London

  • 5 of 5

The 1 bedroom apartment was accurately represented. The property was both clean and well maintined. The owner's representative, Jane, left us with some food and beverages to get us started. As previous renters have stated the view of Tower Bridge is beautiful. You are well located to the Tower Hill tube stop (5 minute walk) and many buses that will take you just about anywhere you would want to go in central London. The exterior apartment hallways and lift were also in very good condition. We felt very safe and well located and so preferred staying in an apartment to an expensive, cramped hotel.

Just as it looks in the pictures

  • 5 of 5

We stay a long weekend, a couple with 2 children (8 & 10 y.o.). We recommend this property for many reasons:

- perfect location (underground, buses, restaurants, supermarket, etc...)

- excellent views (just as in the picture)

- unsurpassable accomodation (everything in the flat was perfect: furniture, sheets, towels, cookware, dishes, comfortable beds and sofa beds)

- personal attention (Jane was on time to give us keys and tell us about the local restaurants and supermarkets. She was also was very helpful when we ask her to leave the flat on time -10am- but let us leave the luggage in the flat and pick up later. Martin came to say hello and check that everything was all right)

Something negative? It is true that one hears traffic and underground noise, but not more than in any city, at the end you are in London, not in a cottage.

So I recommend you to stay here for a great London holidays!

Fantastic Apartment and Location

  • 5 of 5

I stayed in the Tower apartment for five days with two of my friends. I can't say enough about the beautiful views, the convenient location, and the warm welcome we were given for the London portion of our vacation. The housekeeper met us promptly when we called and provided us with several necessities such as milk, eggs, yogurt, and orange juice. She also gave us directions to the grocery stores close by as well as a couple of cafes. The location was so perfect because the Tower Hill tube station was just across the park ; the Tower of London was across the street, and the river landing for transportation on the river was there by the Tower. We took the boat the first afternoon to the London Eye and then walked along the river and across Tower Bridge back to our "home." The apartment was furnished well with nice furniture and comfortable beds so it felt like home. At night the view from the windows was beautiful. We all bought the convenient Oyster card and utilized the tube station to go all over London to the British Museum, to the shops on Oxford Street, and to the Hyde Park area. We went to the theatre and enjoyed every minute of our too brief stay in London. So - on our return visit we will stay no where else but the Tower Apartment. Loved it that much!

Great Stay...Would definitely come back!

  • 5 of 5

Great place to stay! We choose this apartment because of its location to the city and metro station. Yes the apartment is not right in the center of the city, but it is still in the city and the tube is pretty easy to navigate. The metro station, Tower Hill, is literally across the street (takes about 3-5 mins to walk there since the entrance is around the backside). The place is spacious and clean. The pictures are accurate, you can literally sit on the couch and look out the window to see the Tower Bridge!

The cable and internet worked great, the bedrooms were a good size, and the bathrooms were just fine too. The only minor complaint I have, but really is nothing, is that one of the single mattress' in the 2nd bedroom (not the master) needs to be replaced soon since it has lost almost all of its spring!

Martin, the owner, does a great job communicating with you about everything as well! Would definitely recommend and if I am back in the future would definitely book again!

Truly incredible views! Fantastic stay!

  • 4 of 5

You simply cannot beat the location this flat provides. The easibility of it is marvelous. There's a tube stop across the street virtually. It's a great spot to haul a black cab. Don't listen to the reviews about the tube vibrating being a bother. You can barely feel it! The flat was perfect for our needs and well appointed... The master has an equivalent of a US Queen sized bed. As I looked at the pictures I mistakenly thought it was a US King sized bed... But that was my fault, not Martin's.

Everything with check in went very smoothly. It was a great rental. There's a great little pub very close by which was great to unwind after a long day. Three or four options for a "grab and go" breakfast within steps.
