Overview

Photos and Description of this 2 bedroom holiday apartment in City of London Financial District

2 Bedrooms, 2 Bathrooms, Sleeps 4

Located in the very centre of London, five minutes walk to the city (financial district) and 10 minutes bus ride to the West End (Theatres and entertainment district) Underground train station is just 200 metres.

About Philip Green

Philip and Derek are in the travel business and often make trips to London for business and cultural events. We decided to buy our own place in central London and to rent it to others when we are not using it. We use it about three or four times a year. We needed a home that was secure and easy to look after with 24 hour 'front desk' service so we could come and go at any time of day or night.

Philip Green purchased this apartment in 2001

Why Philip Green chose City of London Financial District

This flat was new in 1999 and finished to a high standard. It has wonderful views of the city of London. It is next to Old Street Tube station on the Northern line and has excellent bus services from outside the front door. We never bring a car to London as it is too congested, so easy public transport was important to us. The location is within a short walk of dozens of restaurants, supermarkets, shops, pubs and coffee bars and is close to the trendy night time areas of Clerkenwell, Hoxton and Shoreditch.

What makes this apartment unique

Perfect central Location.

Magnificent city views.

Excellent frequent bus service outside the door.

Trendy bars, restaurants and nightlife close by.

Tube station 200 metres.

Great Flat, Great Location

  • of 5

The flat was exactly as described. It was spacious, providing ample room for my wife and 2 college age kids. The location was great, and a short walk to the Old Street tube station. Haji, the building concierge was extremely helpful. He helped accommodate our luggage as we arrived prior to check in time and he was very friendly throughout our visit in London. We definitely recommend this to others and would absolutely stay here again for our next visit.

Great space in a convenient location

  • 5 of 5

This apartment is accurately described on the website and greatly contributed to a terrific week in London. Truly lovely space, wonderful views, and the ability to take a hot shower, make a quick meal and toss in a load of laundry: what more could a person want? During our stay, we took full advantage of the buses, the tube and the easy walking proximity to other neighborhoods. Good restaurants are within walking distance (and we [two women] always felt safe while walking) and the concierge, the free wifi, and the information package provided by the owner were each a nice bonus. I would definitely stay here again and would recommend it to friends without reservation.

Beautiful, perfect!

  • 5 of 5

This the perfect place to stay when in London with your family or friends. Stayed here for more than a week last Spring and were very satisfied and happy with the flat. We loved the spacious rooms and the beautiful interior. The kitchen was well-equipped and we were able to use most them a lot of times during our stay. The place was also very convenient for us as it's close to the Tube - getting around the city was easy for the family because of this. The concierge service provided helped our exploration of the city with their tips on getting around. Our family vacation was a hassle free experience because of our decision to rent out this flat.

Spacious and clean!

  • 5 of 5

My wife, two teenage sons and I stayed for a week here and were very impressed. There was plenty of space for us, and the balcony off the living room was a bonus. We spent every evening relaxing there after a day of being in crowds. Having a Subway right next door, as well as take away fish and chips and curry very close by was great.

There was a lot of construction in the area, which meant being awakened at about 6 a.m. by jackhammers and other machinery, but we loved the apartment and the location(just down the road from the Tube).

We really appreciated the kindness and helpfulness of all the concierges! They offered tips on restaurants, and booked us a taxi for our departure. Thank you gentlemen!

Wonderful Flat!!!

  • 5 of 5

We arrived for 8 days and had fabulous time in London. A big part of the fabulous time was getting to stay at this flat. It was beautiful and perfect for my husband, daughter, MIL and me. There was tons of space and it was decorated beautifully. The view from the balcony was great and our 2nd night there we were treated to a birds eye view of a helicopter, then paratroopers then fireworks not too far away. It was a great location to use public transportation. We used the bus and tube everywhere we went. Phillip (the owner) was awesome with sending information ahead of time so we knew how we were going to get around. We really felt at home. It was so nice to be able to come home after a long day of walking about London and have a relaxing space to enjoy. We were so glad we chose VRBO instead of a hotel. Thank you Phillip for your hospitality!! You helped to make our trip a holiday to remember. I'd give more than 5 stars if I could!!! P.s. Haji was super too!
