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.

Convenient location with amazing views

  • 5 of 5

This place was perfect for our family of 2 adults and 2 teenage boys. The Tower Hill tube station is just across the park and can get you anywhere in London. We loved looking out the window at the Tower of London, Tower Bridge and the Thames, especially at night. The neighborhood is bustling during the day with business folks and tourists but is quiet at night. We enjoyed the nearby restaurants and the market was about a 10 minute walk down the street. The agent met us at the flat and even had a few provisions for us in the fridge. We had beautiful sunny, warm days during our stay and were thankful for the fans that were available in the bedrooms. The large windows gave us a nice breeze in the evening. We were very happy with our stay!

Great Stay in London!

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed staying at this apartment: the location was great, the apartment was very comfortable, and the owner, Martin, was very responsive & helpful.

The location: As advertised, this is VERY near the London Tower and Bridge. It's literally across the street and just to your left. You can be at the London Tower from the front door in a couple of minutes, and every room has a view of the Tower and Bridge which are simply awesome to gaze upon, especially at night. It is also nearby many restaurants, including The Liberty Bounds restaurant pub just below the apartments and several others all within walking distance. Plus do not miss the All Hallows By The Tower Church (reportedly the oldest in London) which is right across the street as well. It is a great little gem that is not crawling with tourists. And if a Jack the Ripper Tour interests you, the Jack From Hell, Ripping Yards Tours starts at the very nearby metro station - maybe a 3-4 minute walk.

The apartment itself is cozy and we warmed up to it quickly. It seemed to fit the area, and once we settled in, it just felt right. It also has a small washer/dryer and kitchen for preparing some basic foods (I cooked breakfast most mornings). The living area offers a nice area to stretch out and there was enough room for my family of four to move comfortably about. It also has a nice key fob to use for a double exterior door entry, so it's very secure.

Martin was very helpful in answering questions, and Jane was quick to meet us with the key, great and orient us, and even provided a small bit of starter groceries, which was a nice touch. Overall, I'd stay again.

A few tips: Simplyiarports.co.uk is a good option for airport pickup/drop off and also to the Eurostar. Uber was hit/miss, and unless you ride The Tube a whole lot in one day, a taxi is FAR cheaper - The Tube is NOT a good value if you are only going there in back.

Super Location; Super Apartment

  • 5 of 5

This is a fantastic property. It is comfortable, attractively decorated and super convenient. We really enjoyed having the DVD player and nice assortment of movies after a long day of sightseeing. The views from the place really remind you that you are in LONDON!

We were traveling with our 3 adult kids. Everyone was comfortable and happy. I highly recommend this apartment.

Lovely Property

  • 4 of 5

We stayed in the two bedroom apartment. One of the bedrooms had what seemed like a queen sized bed and we had the other made up with two twins. The apartment is so convenient to restaurants, grocery stores etc... The Tower Hill tube station is just a very short walk, maybe 3 minutes, across a small park. The Tower of London is across the street, as is All Hallows Church, one of the oldest churches in London and a must see. The apartment has a lift that takes you to the third floor right outside of the apartment, so it is easy to shuttle luggage back and forth. There is plenty of closet and drawer space to unpack. Kitchen is large by European standards and has everything you would need. The area around the apartment is very safe and secure. We were three women staying in the apartment and frequently walked at night and had no problems what so ever. One thing to take into consideration is there is road construction at present outside of the apartment building, so it can be noisy if you leave the windows open. With the windows closed we never had a problem sleeping. Not sure how long the construction will be going on. During the day , if we were in the apartment, you could have the windows open and still enjoy having a conversation with no problem. Would definitely stay here again.

Spring Break Holiday

  • 5 of 5

We decide to travel abroad during our extended spring break this year, and this home was a great choice! What originally started as a vacation for our family of four, expanded to include my elderly parents. The home owner was extremely accommodating with the travel change. The location could not have been better. We were right across the street from the London Tower, Tower Bridge, and Hop-on/Hop-off bus tours stop. On the same block was a tube station! There is a lot of construction going on in London, which made Uber/Taxi drops a bit more difficult than typical, but I think that any place you stay in London is going to afford the same construction results.

Overall, this was a fabulous location, great accommodations, and very welcoming hosts. I would stay her again any day. It was great!

I would definitely recommend this to friends. Lots of eating establishments nearby, as well as several little shops to get "on-the-go" food such as muffins or sandwiches.
