Description

St Katharine's & Wapping Apartment Rental Photos and Description

Both 2 bedroom/2 bathroom flats are in this same Victorian Period building.

Flat A - Penthouse Flat with Spectacular views of the Tower of London and river Thames:

Well appointed, in elegant contemporary decor, this 2 Bedroom, 2 Bathroom, flat on the 5th floor of a late Victorian building (with lift) sleeps 4. It offers spectacular views of the Tower of London, Tower Bridge, & River Thames; as well as superb access to transport links taking you into the West End. The nearest tube station is just a 3 minutes walk away.

NEW: Flat B - Lightly refurbished along similar elegant lines to our original property, (Please see photos for Flat B, below) this flat is situated at the rear of the property. It therefore DOES NOT offer the same view as our current rental; it overlooks 10 Trinity Square a beautiful Grade II listed building and of course the same standard of service, cleanliness, and comfortable accommodation.

In the heart of the City; both flats are perfectly located for the business traveller, and/or for those on a family* holiday, or quick sojourn.

PLEASE CLICK ON MORE DETAILS BELOW:

FLAT A: Penthouse Flat with a view - THIS FLAT SLEEPS 4:

The Master Bedroom offers a sumptuous king-size bed (with a TEMPUR - memory foam - mattress) while the second bedroom's zip & link bed can either be made up as a king-size, or divided into two singles (pictured) as required. We pride ourselves on our welcoming atmosphere, attention to detail and cleanliness.

We offer our guests Egyptian cotton sheets and towels, plus small touches of luxury (such as complimentary toiletries and Nespresso capsules) to add to your comfort and enjoyment. Four electric fans (two table & two floor-standing, which all garnered favourable comments during last summer's rare heatwave) are permanently placed in the apartment as this is a period Victorian building, and thus not air-conditioned. Staples include internet access, via a WIFI connection, as well as a replete stocked kitchen (cook and tableware.) Previous guests have been pleasantly surprised to find real wine glasses. Given a dining area which can seat six, this means you have a real alternative to eating out.

NEW: FLAT B - THIS FLAT SLEEPS 4, but can accommodate a 5th person

The Master Bedroom offers a king-size zip & link bed which can either be made up as a king-size, or divided into two singles as required (King = 180 cms x 200 cms - Singles = 90 cms x 200 cms.) The smaller second bedroom offers a double bed (115 cms x 175 cms.) Please note the diameter of the room is such that the bed is placed against the wall.

There is a single pull out sofa bed in the living room (90 cms x 180 cms) perfect for a child, or slim built adult.

This can be made available at an EXTRA charge of 5% on the rental balance.

We pride ourselves on our welcoming atmosphere, attention to detail and cleanliness. We offer our guests Egyptian cotton sheets and towels, plus small touches of luxury (such as complimentary toiletries and Nespresso capsules) to add to your comfort and enjoyment. Three floor standing electric fans are permanently placed in the apartment, as this is a period Victorian building, and thus not air-conditioned. Staples include internet access, via a WIFI connection, as well as a well-stocked kitchen (both cook and tableware.) Given a dining area which seats five, there is a real alternative to eating out.

LOCAL AREA:

There are many restaurants & bars within walking distance. From the family friendly 'Kitchen@Tower' (across the road) to restaurants which suit every palate, & wallet, the area is as rich with cosmopolitan life as with historical landmarks.

Within walking distance you will also find the Tower of London (home of the Crown Jewels and famous ravens) Tower Bridge, All Hallows church (from where Samuel Peyps watched and recorded the great fire of London) and the famous Leadenhall Market - (the covered market in Gracechurch street, primarily selling food and flowers as seen in 'Harry Potter and the Philosopher's Stone'.) St Katharine's Dock is just 200m east of Tower Hill Station, the O2 Arena is close by (DLR to the Canary Wharf, Jubilee line to North Greenwich) and further afield, world famous Oxford street is easily accessible within 15-20 mins via the Central Line tube (subway) from Bank Station which is a 5 minute walk.

Pop on the tube (subway) or the Docklands Light Railway (DLR) and sample all the other attractions London has to offer, from a perfect luxurious base in Trinity Square.

.

* While we are happy to welcome families with children, aged 4 and above, I am afraid we do not have the facilities to accommodate families with babies or toddlers in either flat.

* * When enquiring please include Arrival and Departure flight times - if known - and children's ages - if relevant.

* * * Please note we cannot accept bookings from parties travelling 'Stand-By' or 'No Res'.

Access to either property on the first day of your stay is by prior arrangement.

Whilst we prefer to check-in our guests in the morning - or at lunchtime - we can be flexible. Check-ins after 9:30 PM incur a late check-in fee, as per our booking form. Check-ins on CHRISTMAS DAY, BOXING DAY, NEW YEARS DAY, on the EASTER WEEKEND and other UK BANK HOLIDAYS are - unfortunately - not possible.

* * * * Please note: we list on more than one website. Thus, bookings shown on this calendar DO NOT always reflect our most recent, up to date, availability.

Please contact to enquire about availability.

“No Worries - Delightful..!!”

  • 5 of 5

Our family of 3 have used VRBO and HomeAway for vacations over the years and have learned the importance of reading between the lines in the descriptions of the properties, as well as reading the reviews of others. This was definitely our best experience of a VRBO rental ever and you can rest assured that 15 Trinity Square is as advertised – and so much more.

The flat is spectacular; the views of the Thames and the Tower of London can’t be beat. It is so conveniently located – less than a block to the tube, boat and bus transportation, as well as central to most of the London sight-seeing venues. There is plenty of shopping for groceries nearby and restaurants are abundant and within walking distance. It is a very safe area and we had no qualms about walking anywhere, day or night. The flat itself was very clean and well equipped with high end appliances, linens, and everything with your comfort in mind.

Over and above the flat (excellent) the bright spot was dealing with Chris, the rental agent. The communication was outstanding throughout the rental process with timely responses to our emails. After we booked the property, Chris forwarded information about London with useful links for transportation and attractions. Upon departure our deposit was returned promptly – received by the time we arrived home.

This is an excellent choice for a centrally located London venue – a room with a view! Thank you Chris.

Fantastic apartment in an ideal location

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in the apartment in November 2016 and found it to be perfect in size for our group of three adults. The location is fantastic with many major attractions within walking distance. Irene was a joy to work with at every stage of the booking and the deposit was refunded in quick time. We will definitely book again in the future.

Fabulous location and lovely flat!

  • 5 of 5

What a wonderful vacation that was made even better by this incredible flat. Irene is so lovely to work with and makes sure you have everything you neeed upon arrival. The location was ideal for us as it wasn't directly in the heart of London but right across from the Towerr of London and a very safe neighborhood. Tubes, buses and taxis all very accessible with a 2 minute walk. The flat itself it beautifully decorated and very comfortable. All conveniences are addressed: two adapters, umbrella, blow dryers, Nespresso machine and she even had milk for us! Thank you Irene for making our brief stay in London so enjoyable.

Great location and a beautiful flat

  • 5 of 5

Classy secure building with impressive entry. Property manager, Irene welcomed the four of us as if we were returning friends. The flat was spacious, well appointed and provided privacy for two couples. Great location to Tube station surrounded by a variety of restaurants. We would definitely return.

Beautiful apartment with amazing views!

  • 5 of 5

My sons and I just finished our stay in this great apartment. The location is great -- there's a lot to offer right outside your door. The building is beautiful, draped in gorgeous flowers and the inside is just as pretty. It was very comfortable and homey. And Irene was amazing to work with. You will not go wrong staying here.

We were in London in Sept and were very pleased with our stay at this flat.

  • 4 of 5

The flat was located near the underground at Tower Hill and also within walking distance of three Tower of London. It was a little warm in the flat, but the nights were cool enough. The flat itself was great and Irene was every helpful. Throughly enjoyed our stay.

Car: not necessary

* ARRIVING: Both London Heathrow and London Gatwick airport are quite a distance from central London. Details of a car service can be provided, but this is a relatively costly option.

.

The most cost effective way to get to the flat/apartment from Heathrow Airport is to take the London Underground (Tube/Subway) - Piccadilly & then District lines - which will take you from Heathrow to the Tower Hill Tube Station (located just 100 yards from the flat.)

.

First take the Piccadilly line to Hammersmith. Then, at Hammersmith change to the District line, which will take you to Tower Hill. The change at Hammersmith is easy - you just walk across to the other side of the same platform, with no steps to negotiate. There are stairs to negotiate, up from the District line platform at Tower Hill, but there is a landing halfway up the flight of stairs.

.

Arriving from Gatwick is also easy: The Gatwick Express train runs to Victoria Station in central London. From there take the Circle or District Lines, both run directly east to the Tower Hill station. Alternatively, take a First Capital Connect train from Gatwick to London Bridge Station, and then a taxi across the river to Tower Hill. It's a mile away - approximately a 5 minute taxi-cab ride.

.

* SITUATED: Within walking distance of the Tower of London, Tower Bridge, All Hallows Church and near Leadenhall Market. St Katharine's Dock is 200m east of Tower Hill Station. Also close to the O2 (DLR to the Canary Wharf, Jubilee line to North Greenwich.) The tube/subway gives you access to the whole of London, from world famous Oxford Street, to London Museums, Palaces and the magic of West End Theatre.
