River View from BALCONY ! ! Watch the boats sail by ...

Bedrooms 1
Space 441 sq. ft.
Property type apartment
Minimum Stay 1 - 6 nights


About the property

Luxury Studio can sleep 4 people.

The Balcony gives a SIDE River Thames view, (see the photograph from the Balcony picture) so you can watch the boats sailing by in the evening after a walk along the stunning famous and Romantic South Bank River Path.

The view DIRECTLY in front of the balcony is Europe's tallest building called 'The Shard'. A balcony with a view of the River and Shard is London RARE!

The River Path is next to the apartment. This leads to most things you will want to see ... The River is very long so make sure you are staying at the central part of it...ALWAYS check the Google map!

As you can see from the photograph, the River path leads all the way to The London Eye.

On the River Path: (see my photographs)

The Shakespeare's Globe

The Tate (free entry)

St Paul's Cathedral

The Tower Bridge

HMS Belfast Museum Boat

London Bridge

The Oxo Tower

The London Aquarium

St Paul's Cathedral

The London Dungeon

Cross over the bridge and you are on Charing Cross Road and into 'The West End'

The studio is 441 Square Foot or 41 Square Metres.

We have unlimited Wi Fi

You can also use our Britsh Mobile/Cell Phone (just 'Top Up') at the shops, this

means that you can take it out with you and then you will not get crazy International Roaming fees!

There are four ways to make coffee if you are a big coffee fan like me!

The best in my opinion is the gorgeous Italian De Longhi

Expresso/Capuccino Maker then there is a stove De Longi Expresso maker and a caffetiere plus normal instant with the kettle. A full tin of Illy Coffee, fresh milk (or coffee mate creamy powder) sugar and sweetners and croissants will be waiting for you.

Fantastic location

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed exploring the South Bank from Karen's spacious studio apartment. She thoughtfully provided provisions for breakfast the next morning. And there was coffee, tea, sugar, paper towels and more. All of the essentials were on hand, including laundry soap for the very nice washer-dryer. But the location near the River Thames and the Tower of London Bridge were sights that we never tired of seeing. Thanks so much, Karen, for providing such an inviting apartment.

Fantastic location for a London Adventure

  • 5 of 5

The property was very nicely appointed and the location was perfect. The kitchen was just the right size and allowed us to avoid eating out for every meal. The balcony and accompanying view are great. The neighborhood was quiet and the easy access to the tube was a huge plus. Just what we were looking for on this trip.

Clean, classy and convenient!

  • 5 of 5

This flat is super convenient for couples or families spending time in London. Close to river, Tube and other transport, as well as a grocery for stocking up. Though this is a studio, our family of four (2 adults, 2 teens) was able to find enough space to spread out. The photos on the website are a good reflection of what you will see when you arrive.

The decor is London-themed and fun without being kitchy or cluttered. The unit is also super clean! Coffee station is a life-saver in the morning! We found this flat to be well-stocked with what we needed.

Karen and her team were very responsive, and Karen checked in with us during our stay a few times to make sure that all was well.

Quite place to stay with the family

  • 4 of 5

When we arrived to the appartment the housekeeper welcomed us and explained us all the necesary information concerning the appartment, the supermarket and so on. Since the first day we felt very confortable. The location is pefect. We enjoied very much the walks along the river side upto the London Eye. The night view of the London Bridge is absolutely marvelous.

The metro is not far away so it is very easy to reach any part of London.

And after a long day, the appartment offer a nice place to rest. The owner offers coffe, tea, toileteries, towels, linen, bed sheets, dishwasher and washing machine (with the cleaning products necesary). Not to mention all the maps and guiding books you can use during your stay.

As a summary, a perfect place for the three of us. Definetely we recomend it.

Your balcony at the studio gives a side River Thames view, so you can watch the boats sailing by in the evening after perhaps some serious shopping - or a walk along the stunning famous South Bank River Path.

The view directly in front of the balcony is Europe's tallest building called 'The Shard' and you can now go to the viewing point at the top! It is higher than The London Eye.

Outside space is a rare luxury in London especially with a river view and iconic view! The River Path starts at your Front Door ! This leads to most things that will probably be on your list ! The River is very long - make sure you are staying at the central part of it...always check the Google map! As you can see from the photograph, the River path leads all the way to The London Eye. On the Path are: The Shakespeare's Globe, The Tate (free entry) St Paul's Cathedral, The Tower Bridge, London Bridge, The Aquarium and The Saatchi Gallery. Cross over The Bridge at The Eye and you are on Charring Cross Road/Covent Garden/Theatre Land/Piccadilly Circus. A unique oppurtunity at an amazing price

Other Activities: All official London walks and bus tours start in front of The Tower Of London just across the bridge.
