Lovely flat in a great neighborhood

  • 5 of 5

This was a comfortable and beautifully decorated apartment, just perfect for our small family. We also loved the neighborhood, and--added bonus--it was extremely quiet, which we appreciated after our long days of sightseeing and enjoying London. Highly recommend.

Excellent location and amenities

  • 5 of 5

Just back from a three night stay at this lovely flat. Beds were very comfortable and in American sizes, there was a queen, a double, and a sturdy twin bunk bed. We didn't cook, but the facilities were more than adequate and there is a grocery store less than a five minute walk. We didn't find the short-cut stairs until our last day, but right where the barriers are to the dock, there is a staircase that goes right up to the flat. No need to walk up the street, up the stairs, and back across to the flat.

The location was great. It was in a quiet area right near St. Katherine's dock that has many restaurants. It was a 10 minute walk to the tube. Our first night we walked across Tower Bridge and wandered down the south bank all the way to the London Eye. It's a great walk.

I would definitely return to this lovely flat with its excellent location.

Clean & Close to Tower Bridge & Transport network

  • 5 of 5

The apartment is clean, well presented and very well equipped. Everything you need is provided. Absolutely loved that there was 2 hairdryers, power boards in the bedrooms for charging portable devices, and even umbrellas in case of rain. Handy to Tesco Express and Waitrose as well as a range of cafes and restaurants. Would highly recommend to anyone visiting London.

Great place for the family!

  • 5 of 5

We just returned from our stay at this apartment on St. Katharine's Way. It was wonderful. The 3 bedroom apartment accommodated our family of 6 adults. We had 4 singles with us, so the guys slept in the bunk beds and the girls slept in the double bed. Everyone was very happy with their sleeping accommodations. Needless to say, we did a lot of walking everyday so sleeping at night was not a problem. The king size bed my husband and I slept in was more in line with an American queen size bed, but it was very comfortable. The apartment was very well equipped. Having hair dryers in every room was very helpful and it was one less thing we had to bring. The kitchen was fantastic! It is equipped with everything you need. We shopped at the Waitrose grocery store which is very close to the apartment. The Tower Hill tube station is close by too. For chocolate lovers, we highly recommend Dark Sugars on Brick Lane (a little walk from the Aldegate East station). They have the best Hot Chocolate plus chocolate of all flavors. We also found a great fish & chips takeout - Johnny's Fish Bar - a walk across the Tower Bridge and down on Tanner St. It's a local place. Burough Market is not too far away. Visit it early in your stay. Great food! Overall great trip and our accommodations helped make it happen! Thank you!

Fantastic Location and Lovely Apartment!

  • 5 of 5

This three bedroom, 1.5 bathroom apartment has an amazing location. It is a 10 minute walk from the Tower Hill Station on the central line which means that you can take the underground directly to Paddington Station (Windsor Castle), Euston Station (Warner Bros Studio), St Pancreas (Eurostar line), and Kings Cross (Platform 9 3/4).

To get to the apartment, walk to the St Katherines' docks (boats not on the Thames!) and head for the Mala Indian restaurant. A flight of stairs will take you up from that corner. No need to walk all the way around the buildings!

The apartment is so clean that we felt like we were the first people to ever stay there. Everything looked brand new and felt luxurious. After walking all the day, the beds felt divinely comfortable. The carpet in the living room is soft under your feet (we always took off our shoes inside, just to keep the place nicer. I don't know if that is standard practice in England or not). The neighbors are either silent or the walls are well insulated, we never heard a sound from them.

There is a stove that can cook a frozen pizza in about 5-10 minutes (be careful you don't burn it, it cooks that fast!). There is a washing machine that spins the clothes so well that they dry overnight on the drying rack. The radiator in the bathroom is also the towel rack (I think!) and that means heated towels after your shower (our weather was lovely and warm, we didn't get to experience this - but I am not complaining about dry sunny weather in London in April!).

There are two grocery stores in easy walking distance. The Tesco Express is between Tower Hill Station and the apartment. Their fresh bread and rolls appeared at 7:15am and were delightful! The Waitrose is a 5 minute walk in the other direction (and that is a five minute walk with three tired children in tow!) and has everything you'd expect to find in a big grocery store: peanut butter, jam, bread, Indian take-out, apples, ice cream, etc. The prices were reasonable.

This is an excellent apartment. Fantastic location. I only have good things to say about this place! We never met the hosts because of timing, delayed planes, and we are early risers. From all their emails, I am sure they are lovely people! This is the nicest place we have ever stayed through HomeAway!

Wonderful flat in London

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful stay here over Spring Break 2017. The flat is very homey and comfortable and the location is exceptional! The pictures don't do it justice. We enjoyed walking through St. Katherine's Docks every day and there are lots of nearby restaurants and pubs. If you're looking for a place to stay in London, you can't go wrong here. I can't wait to return.
