Royal Arsenal, London, England - Quiet Location With Good Transport links to Central London
Why Owner chose Woolwich
Quiet residential location with historical interest and easy access to central London. We often use the apartment and have therefore equipped it as our second home.
100% refund if canceled at least 60 days before arrival date.
Chose this property after reading so many positive reviews. We weren’t disappointed. In fact it lived up to every single one of its ringing endorsements.
Great little flat on the Thames
We stayed in this flat for 15 days with a family of 4, and it worked perfectly for us.
While it's a bit of a ways from downtown London, we chose this location due to proximity to family residing nearby. That said, there are multiple transport methods getting to/from downtown, and a few nearby restaurants and convenience stores. The Clipper (river bus) can get you down to Big Ben in comfort in about an hour, but the DLR runs more frequently, and is cheaper and faster, getting you there in about 30 minutes.
The flat was clean and organized, and had everything we needed. It was really nice having 2 full bathrooms (1 with shower/tub, and the other with shower), as well as a clothes washer/dryer.combo. The washer/dryer has a delay start function, so you can set it up whenever is convenient, and have it be finished right when you plan on getting back for the day.
Instructions for all the appliances were available, and there was also a helpful info guide for nearby areas. Communication with the property owner was always clear and any responses were very prompt.
All in all, it was a great value, and when booking our next holiday in the area, I hope that this flat is available again!
Many thanks for your comprehensive and kind review. We hope we can welcome you back one day.

Lovely property, brilliantly placed for O2, fantastically equipped and very comfortable for 2 adults1 teen and 1 child. Central London very easy by boat or DLR and tube. Hosts very responsive, definitely will be our go to place to stay as a family.
Thank for your kind review. We hope one day to see you back at our property. Michael and Melanie
Excellent. Obviously a great deal of thought has gone into providing a home from home.
Fantastic stay. Faultless from start to finish. The apartment is exactly as described in the website - even better in fact. So convenient for the O2 arena using the river bus service. So comfortable and welcoming with one or two thoughtful personal touches that really made it even more special. The facilities on site around the Royal Arsenal Riverside complex are great - from the mini-supermarkets to the pubs and restaurants to the concierge and the other colourful local shops and markets are just a short walk away.Would definitely like to use the apartment again for another visit.
Thankyou so much for your great review.We are very pleased that our apartment lived up to your expectations and that you found the local facilities to be good as well. The convenience of the Thames Clipper for getting to the O2 is definitely a good reason to stay at the Royal Arsenal! We hope to be able to accommodate you again should you return to London.

We stayed in this apartment during our visit to the World Athletics Championships at the Olympic Park. Travelling to Stratford on the DLR was easy with regular trains and a short walk between the station and the flat.
The Royal Arsenal area is a nice mix of modern facilities in historic buildings and I felt very safe there which was reassuring with small children. It was also very quiet around the building, overlooking a nice green area with a playground whilst also having shops and smart pubs within walking distance.
We also enjoyed travelling into London via the Thames Clipper on the weekend to watch the marathon by Tower Bridge. The riverside walk also gave great views.
In the apartment itself we had everything we needed and more. We made good use of all of the facilities including the washing machine, dishwasher and games/dvds for the children.
The kitchen had everything we needed and it was nice to find some cold drinks and milk in the fridge on arrival - thank you.
Before coming, I was a little concerned that over 10 days, we might get a little cramped with 6 of us, but this was not a problem. There was plenty of room and the futon was easy to fold each morning.
On arrival, we did find the apartment very hot and we needed to open up some windows. Upstairs was warmer and we were glad to find fans in each bedroom which we used each night.
Before and after our stay, the owners were very quick to communicate and had no problems at all. I would thoroughly recommend this apartment to others and would consider staying here again.
Thank you for your kind and comprehensive review. We are glad that all worked out well and we hope one day to welcome you back.
