The Waterloo Penthouse is a 2,000 square foot, 2-bedroom, 3-bathroom dwelling, located in one of London's most historic, in-demand areas, Waterloo.

The kitchen is fully stocked with all utensils, pots, pans, instant coffee, tea, sugar, milk potties, oil, salt, and pepper.

The living room is tastefully decorated, with a dining table, six chairs, and two sofas. For entertainment, there's also a flat-screen television, a DVD player, an MP3-compatible stereo, and high-speed internet access without restrictions as to the amount of data transfer taken place. You also have your own personal terrace, overlooking beautiful Waterloo Road and beyond.

Both bedrooms boast Queen-sized beds, with quality mattresses, bedding, and linen, to ensure a good night's rest. Both also boast full en-suite bathrooms, inclusive of showers. In the other bathroom, the main one, there's even a generous-sized bathtub, in addition to a shower.

Local Attractions : South Bank, a significant arts and entertainment district, is only a short walk away. The Old Vic, a historic theatre that was established in 1818, is just 2 minutes by foot from the apartment. The Anchor & Hope, a wonderful, local gastropub, is 5 minutes away. The London Eye, which is Europe's tallest ferris wheel and the most popular paid tourist attraction in the United Kingdom, is only a short walk away. The Design Museum, famed for being the alleged first museum of modern design, is also in the area. Shakespeare's Globe, a reconstruction of the burned-down Globe Theatre, is one of London's best playhouses. Trafalgar Square, a public space that is often used for political demonstrations and community gatherings, is near to the apartment. Big Ben, the great bell of the clock at the north end of the famed Palace of Westminster, is just across the river.

Penthouse apartment

  • Submitted: Aug 30, 2013
  • Stayed: Aug 2013
Nice apartment, good location to Waterloo station, bus services and underground. Clean,spacious and welcoming. Tea and coffee available. The steps to the balcony were high in excess of 20cm steps up to access so you need to be able bodied to access the balconies. The view is good which extends across the Thames and you can see big Ben and the eye which are within walking distance. The amenities are limited with a small number of restaurants nearby; overall would recommend.

We Loved it

We loved it was within walking distance to so many of the tourist sites, or you could catch the tube which was about a 7 min walk at Waterloo Station.

I was surprised to see such quality real estate

  • Submitted: Sep 7, 2012
  • Stayed: Aug 2012
Since the moment I made my reservation ... I was under the impression that picture always there for marketing purposes only and I should see something less on physical usage. But I was wrong!

London boutique let is a great service company I will try my best to search for their standard in future lets if they don't have what I'm looking for ...

Final recommendation,

Book with them without any regret ... they are the best.

Large, Modern apartment Near Waterloo Station

  • Submitted: Jul 12, 2012
  • Stayed: Jun 2012
We stayed here a week. Apartment was very large, with modern appliances, bathrooms, and furnishings. Has elevator (which not every building has). Was quiet. The 3 bathrooms (2 with showers) made it easy for all of us to get ready at the same time. Has awesome floor-to-ceiling panoramic windows on both sides. The side facing the living room has a distant but clear, direct view of Big Ben, London Eye, and the some of the newer London buildings. Both sides of the penthouse have huge balconies outside these panoramic windows, though it was too cold and windy when we stayed in June to use them. Waterloo station is a few blocks away which is a transportation hub for multiple Underground lines as well as trains. Local area seems like a "real" middle class London neighborhood--most people we saw looked like residents scurrying to work, etc., not lots of tourists, so seemed like genuine London. Restaurants and grocery markets nearby. Beds were comfortable. WiFi was fast. Boutique London Lets was very responsive to all our e-mail communications.
Our only minor quibbles were that, though we booked and paid for 4 people, we were charged an extra $186 us for the week for my son to use a fold out cot (he didn't want to sleep in the double bed with his sister)--that seemed an excessive charge for a cot, though in fairness this extra charge was listed on their website. Also the walk-in closet was filled mostly with storage for the apartment, leaving little room for our clothes. These were very minor issues that did not spoil our great stay.

Very spacious

  • Submitted: Mar 29, 2012
  • Stayed: Mar 2012
I found the rental process and receipt of keys very efficient and easy. The apartment was bright and spacious and had all the amenities. We found it to be clean. We were quite close to the Waterloo tube stations which was quite convenient. The only complaint we had was the beds were very uncomfortable...perhaps it is time to update them! Also, it was very cold in the apartment when we got there, but after a day it warmed up just fine.

Spacious & Luxurious

Spacious & Luxurious
  • Submitted: Jan 19, 2012
  • Stayed: Jan 2012
It is a spacious, luxurious and fairly new apartment on the seventh (top) floor (lift). Overlooking Big Ben and London Eye, two bedrooms (with good beds), two bathrooms and a kitchen. Large living room with sofa and dining table and two large terraces. 10 minutes walk to subway and several buses at the door. Clean and safe neighborhood, with small neighborhood grocery store for some groceries and restaurants within walking distance. Everything was perfectly fine. Especially for a few days with a family is much more pleasant than staying in a hotel (much more living space for less money).

Central location with all the comforts of home

  • Submitted: Jan 10, 2012
  • Stayed: Dec 2011
We rented the penthouse apartment for a week in august 2011 and were extremely happy with the location and all the facilities provided in the apartment. It made our stay in London even more enjoyable - it was spacious, comfortable and it was all the little touches like having sugar, tea, coffee, dishwashing powder and so on that made it worth the money. Also the location was amazing - close to Waterloo station, bus stop outside the door and about 3 minutes walk from the Old Vic Theatre. We spent a lot of time outside of the apartment but when we came home the boys could play without being on top of us in their own bedroom or watch movies on the DVD. We even had friends over one night for dinner and could buy anything we needed at the local supermarket just up the road. If you are travelling with a family or a group of friends, or two couples, the setup of this accommodation would be great and far cheaper and more comfortable than a hotel.

Excellent value for money

  • Submitted: Dec 29, 2011
  • Stayed: Dec 2011
Despite having seen the pictures of the apartment on the Internet, we were gladly surprised as soon as we opened the door. It was huge, full of daylight and the views from both balconies amazing! Its location was also excellent, with bus stops right on the front door. It was so nice to go back there at the end of the day after non-stop walking round the city. The kitchen was quite well-equipped and the living room had plenty of seating for all of us. Moreover, the beds were really comfortable so we could recharge batteries for the next day!!!
