PENTHOUSE - TOWER OF LONDON VIEW - FLAT A

City of London Apartment Rental Photos and Description

Both 2 bedroom/2 bathroom flats are in this same Victorian Period building.

Flat A - Penthouse Flat with Spectacular views of the Tower of London:

Well appointed, in elegant contemporary decor, this 2 Bedroom, 2 Bathroom, flat on the 5th floor of a late Victorian building (with lift) sleeps 4. It offers spectacular views of the Tower of London, Tower Bridge, & River Thames; as well as superb access to transport links taking you into the West End. The nearest tube station is just a 3 minutes walk away.

NEW: Flat B - Lightly refurbished along similar elegant lines to our original property, (Please see photos for Flat B, below) this flat is situated at the rear of the property. It therefore DOES NOT offer the same view as our current rental; but DOES offer the same standard of service, cleanliness, and comfortable accommodation.

In the heart of the City; both flats are perfectly located for the business traveller, and/or for those on a family* holiday, or quick sojourn.

PLEASE CLICK ON MORE DETAILS BELOW:

FLAT A: Penthouse Flat with a view - THIS FLAT SLEEPS 4:

The Master Bedroom offers a sumptuous king-size bed (with 'Tempur' mattress) while the second bedroom's zip & link bed can either be made up as a king-size, or divided into two singles (pictured) as required. We pride ourselves on our welcoming atmosphere, attention to detail and cleanliness.

We offer our guests Egyptian cotton sheets and towels, plus small touches of luxury (such as complimentary toiletries and Nespresso capsules) to add to your comfort and enjoyment. Four electric fans (two table & two floor-standing, which all garnered favourable comments during last summer's rare heatwave) are permanently placed in the apartment as this is a period Victorian building, and thus not air-conditioned. Staples include internet access, via a WIFI connection, as well as a replete stocked kitchen (cook and tableware.) Previous guests have been pleasantly surprised to find real wine glasses. Given a dining area which can seat six, this means you have a real alternative to eating out.

NEW: FLAT B - THIS FLAT SLEEPS 4, but can accommodate a 5th person

The Master Bedroom offers a king-size zip & link bed which can either be made up as a king-size, or divided into two singles as required (King = 180 cms x 200 cms - Singles = 90 cms x 200 cms.) The smaller second bedroom offers a double bed (135 cms x 190 cms.) Please note the diameter of the room is such that the bed is placed against the wall.

There is a single pull out sofa bed in the living room (90 cms x 180 cms) perfect for a child, or slim built adult.

This can be made available at an EXTRA charge of 5% on the rental balance.

We pride ourselves on our welcoming atmosphere, attention to detail and cleanliness. We offer our guests Egyptian cotton sheets and towels, plus small touches of luxury (such as complimentary toiletries and Nespresso capsules) to add to your comfort and enjoyment. Three floor standing electric fans are permanently placed in the apartment, as this is a period Victorian building, and thus not air-conditioned. Staples include internet access, via a WIFI connection, as well as a well-stocked kitchen (both cook and tableware.) Given a dining area which seats five, there is a real alternative to eating out.

IMPORTANT - PLEASE NOTE: There are building works being done on the heritage property opposite this flat. These are intermittently noisy works. The flat does have excellent double glazing and if the windows are shut very little noise can be heard in the flat.

.

LOCAL AREA:

There are many restaurants & bars within walking distance. From the family friendly 'Kitchen@Tower' (across the road) to restaurants which suit every palate, & wallet, the area is as rich with cosmopolitan life as with historical landmarks.

Within walking distance you will also find the Tower of London (home of the Crown Jewels and famous ravens) Tower Bridge, All Hallows church (from where Samuel Peyps watched and recorded the great fire of London) and the famous Leadenhall Market - (the covered market in Gracechurch street, primarily selling food and flowers as seen in 'Harry Potter and the Philosopher's Stone'.) St Katharine's Dock is just 200m east of Tower Hill Station, the O2 Arena is close by (DLR to the Canary Wharf, Jubilee line to North Greenwich) and further afield, world famous Oxford street is easily accessible within 15-20 mins via the Central Line tube (subway) from Bank Station which is a 5 minute walk.

Pop on the tube (subway) or the Docklands Light Railway (DLR) and sample all the other attractions London has to offer, from a perfect luxurious base in Trinity Square.

.

* While we are happy to welcome families with children, aged 4 and above, I am afraid we do not have the facilities to accommodate families with babies or toddlers in either flat.

* * When enquiring please include Arrival and Departure flight times - if known - and children's ages - if relevant.

* * * Please note we cannot accept bookings from parties travelling 'Stand-By' or 'No Res'.

Access to either property on the first day of your stay is by prior arrangement. While we prefer to check guests in between 9:00 AM and 9:00 PM we are flexible as to earlier check-in times. Check-ins after 9:30 PM incur a late check-in fee, as per our booking form. Check-ins on CHRISTMAS DAY, BOXING DAY, NEW YEARS DAY, on the EASTER WEEKEND and other UK BANK HOLIDAYS are - unfortunately - not possible.

* * * * Please note: we list on more than one website. Thus, bookings shown on this calendar DO NOT always reflect our most recent, up to date, availability.

Please contact to enquire about availability.

Breathtaking view beyond words!

  • 5 of 5
Don't hesitate about booking this flat. Everything is perfection. There is no way possible you can find a hotel in London that matches the view, location, price and accommodations. The flat is better than the photos. The bathrooms are luxurious, the kitchen has everything: microwave, 3 different kinds of coffee pots, Nespresso provided (and delicious), a few sundries waiting for you in the refrigerator, washer/dryer for items that need cleaning during your visit and a dishwasher. Other important items provided are: wifi, hairdryer, electric converter for outlets, umbrella, two sets of keys, guidebooks, dvd player, extremely secure building and four fans.
This flat is the perfect place to relax at the end of day for 2 couples or a family of four. The Tower Bridge view is always changing. One night there was a full moon, the next day a rainbow, then the bridge was up at night with a beautiful light display. The All Hallows Church and The Shard are also part of your view. It is magical. The Tower Hill tube is one block away and easy access to all of London. You can walk to St.Paul's Cathedral, The Shard, Tower Bridge and Millenium Bridge.Our visit was for 10 days and I wanted to stay another week. My recommendations for London are: take the Big Bus tour and NOT the Original tour, visit The Shard instead of the London Eye, only use the London Pass if you are an organized, ambitious group, You must go to the West End for a show. Don't let the name Pizza Express fool you, the food and service are great. If you need a taxi call Dial a Cab and tell them to pick you up at the back entrance on Muscovy. Tescos has everything you need to stock the kitchen and is a very safe walk from the flat (also a cash station).
If you need assistance, Chris responds right away. You will not be disappointed. You will feel like the luckiest person in London when you arrive.

Wonderful Flat in London!

  • 5 of 5
Our family of four (2 adults 2 teens) stayed here for a week in August. The flat was exactly as I hoped it would be! The view was amazing, we loved looking out the window at the Tower of London and the river. Chris was great to work with during our planning stages, always answered emails quick and with all the answers I was looking for. Location was great with quick access to the tube station. Flat was clean and had everything we needed. I would recommend this flat to anyone traveling to London.

Stellar view and location

  • 5 of 5
The property was spotless and absolutely as described, with the added bonus of having chromatherapy lighting in the bathrooms!
We dealt with a highly professional team from the time we reserved until we left the property.
One activity you can do upon arrival is going on a cruise on the Thames, ships leave regularly from the Tower Bridge pier to go both directions. We went to Westminster and back for a nice and fun introduction to the city!
Staying in this apartment was a key part of making our stay in London such a pleasure, and I'd recommend it to anybody looking for a place in London.

Absolute Perfection

  • 5 of 5
Perfect location for our visit to London. This is a large, very clean, well equipped apartment. Although it is on the top floor with a wonderful view the elevator made access easy for us seniors. Two convenient restaurants on the ground floor, one with the best ribs and other smoked meats we have ever had.

It is a short, easy walking distance to a grocery store, the Tower Hill underground station, the river cruise docking point, the Tower Bridge and the Tower of London.

We did have a little to problem locating the apartment when we first arrived because unloading and initial entry is through the rear of the building. However, we were met by the housekeeper who quickly helped us with complete directions.

The only improvements we could suggest is the addition of air conditioning and more complete arrival instructions.

Much better and significantly less expensive than a hotel rooms for two couples, I believe that this apartment is a very good value for the money and would recommend it to anyone visiting London.

This one is a winner. I would stay here again in a heart beat. The listing is exactly as you see it. The rooms are a good size, furnished beautifully, and so very clean. There was four in my party, and we never felt like we were on top of each other. The beds are comfortable, the view is to die for. We used the kitchen for some dinners, the showers had power and the flat is right next to the tubes and the #15 bus. You could not ask for better. Chris who helped us book the flat was a saint. All questions answered by the next day and many helpful tips. I rate this the best apartment in all of London.

FANTASTIC A++++

  • 5 of 5
Our party consisted of 4 adults and each of us rated this flat as one of the best locations we stayed in, during our two weeks of traveling throughout the UK. The tube and bus stops are just a few minute walk from the front door, and the views were great. Chris was a joy to work with and you will not be disappointed if you stay here.

Car: not necessary

* ARRIVING: Both London Heathrow and London Gatwick airport are quite a distance from central London. Details of a car service can be provided, but this is a relatively costly option.

.

The most cost effective way to get to the flat/apartment from Heathrow Airport is to take the London Underground (Tube/Subway) - Piccadilly & then District lines - which will take you from Heathrow to the Tower Hill Tube Station (located just 100 yards from the flat.)

.

First take the Piccadilly line to Hammersmith. Then, at Hammersmith change to the District line, which will take you to Tower Hill. The change at Hammersmith is easy - you just walk across to the other side of the same platform, with no steps to negotiate. There are stairs to negotiate, up from the District line platform at Tower Hill, but there is a landing halfway up the flight of stairs.

.

Arriving from Gatwick is also easy: The Gatwick Express train runs to Victoria Station in central London. From there take the Circle or District Lines, both run directly east to the Tower Hill station. Alternatively, take a First Capital Connect train from Gatwick to London Bridge Station, and then a taxi across the river to Tower Hill. It's a mile away - approximately a 5 minute taxi-cab ride.

.

* SITUATED: Within walking distance of the Tower of London, Tower Bridge, All Hallows Church and near Leadenhall Market. St Katharine's Dock is 200m east of Tower Hill Station. Also close to the O2 (DLR to the Canary Wharf, Jubilee line to North Greenwich.) The tube/subway gives you access to the whole of London, from world famous Oxford Street, to London Museums, Palaces and the magic of West End Theatre.
