Overview

About the property

Sitting on the 15th floor, this apartment gives breath-taking views of the Capital as well as a clean, comfortable place to stay. A wooden-floored entry hall leads into a spacious, open-plan living/ dining/ sitting room. With modern appliances and equipment, the kitchen has everything you'll need to make meals from home. Enjoy a morning coffee from the coffee maker at the breakfast bar.

The apartment is ideal for watching the fireworks in London over the New Year. You have undisturbed views of the London skyline and can see the main London fireworks display as well as all other displays that the city has on show. The experience is truly a magical one. You can see the display from the comfort of the apartment or on the roof top where you have 360 degree panoramic views of London and beyond. An experience you will remember for years to come!

There are two comfortable, and carpeted, double bedrooms with good storage space, and two bathrooms (one is en suite).

On sunny afternoons, you might like to take a drink out to the balcony and watch the sun set, while taking in the fantastic views. There's an even larger roof terrace on the top floor of the building.

Guest Access

You have access to the apartment, communal areas and the rooftop terrace.

Guestbook comments from the owner

The place was great and had all of the amenities you need, close to stores and bakeries. We used uber to get around the city, it was cheap, reliable and most attractions were close. The VIEW WAS AMAZING, our family took turns sleeping on the couch just to look out the windows. Our host was wonderful he went out of his way to make sure our needs were met and checked in to see if we needed anything. Would highly recommend for a short get away or a long vacation. My mom was in a wheelchair and was able to easily get in and out of the flat very refreshing.

INCOMPARABLE APARTMENT, VIEWS AND HOST

  • 5 of 5

Our recent visit to London was exceptional in great part due to our decision to stay in this particular rental. The views, from our flat, on the 15th floor, were exceeded only by the accommodations provided by our host, Hemal Shaw. The apartment was well-appointed. Along with two bedrooms, there were two full baths as well as a very modern kitchen and living room with floor to ceiling windows, which provided stunning views of the city. Floors were polished and appliances gleaming. As a result of Hemal's previsit inquiries, we arrived to find the refrigerator well stocked for our special tastes, and plenty of adaptors were provided for our electronic devices. During our stay, Hemal was an attentive host who communicated daily regarding our London experience. The building's close proximity to public transportation made traveling around the city very convenient. We highly recommend this rental to anyone planning a trip to London!

Truly wonderful 10 days in London

  • 5 of 5

Our family of four (wife and I and our two teenage children) were drawn to this flat because of its many five star reviews and its close proximity to the ExCel Center where I had work responsibilities for several days. The owner, Hemal, was immediate, honest, and completely transparent in answering our many pre-rental questions. We were impressed with Hemal and the apparent value of the flat and so committed. Just last night we returned to the U.S. after a nine day rental. The trip was truly wonderful, far surpassing our (admittedly) high expectations. Hemal's flat made for the perfect home away from home. Its cleanliness, kind and abundantly helpful concierge/doormen David and Omer, close proximity to a grocery store (literally across the street) and the Canary Wharf shopping district, and convenience to the DLR (over-ground Tube line in East London) all contributed to a lifelong vacation memory. The views of the London skyline (corner apartment so a panoramic shot is breathtaking) are fantastic both day and night.

Appreciate that this is East London. It's a healthy 30 minutes via Tube to get into the center city and its most notable attractions. But between the Tube, the various Thames River boat options (upstream into London from the Canary Wharf district which is 5 minutes from the apartment), and Uber/taxi it's not difficult seeing everything London has to offer. Also appreciate that this is an apartment building. There's no lobby restaurant, hotel pool, daily maid service, etc. We knew this going in - just making sure you understand the difference between booking a resort versus a buy-owner apartment rental.

Hemal checked in on us frequently via text and was immediately available throughout our visit. He lined up a taxi service for us to hire on the way in and checked on our progress all the way home. We rented an apartment in London the first two weeks in April 2017. More importantly we made a great friend. Our family could not be happier.

Sincerely,

Todd M.

The condo was very accurately described in listing.

The condo was very clean and welcoming.

The view was awesome!

We would highly recommend this condo to our friends or relatives.

Loved the location because it was very close to the train station.

The owner, Hem, greeted us when we arrived and was very friendly and helpful.

Great Place to Stay to attend the ExCel center and visit London

  • 5 of 5

We visited London for a conference that took place at the ExCel center and leisure. We stayed at this lovely place for 8 days with my husband. The location was excellent - half way to downtown and ExCel center. Just 2 min walk to the DLR station - Langdon Park and easy connections to the tube. The apartment was spacious, clean and safe. The view of the city was amazing! We enjoyed the lights of London every night since we stayed up late due to the time difference.

Also want to thank you the owner, Hemal, who was super helpful and friendly. He made us feel as a part of the family. He was easy to communicate. Answered all questions promptly. He gave good travel tips and even left 2 Oyster cards for us to use.

I highly recommend this apartment to anyone. Money well spent! Would go back any time.
