Photos and Description of this 1 bedroom holiday apartment in City of London Financial District - FPA
1 Bedroom, 1 Bathroom, Sleeps 5
Between london's financial center and it's arts and media center, Spitalfields is one of the most interesting areas in London. You get a sense of being in the capital city when you stand on either of the two balconies and look up at the sky scrapers that surround you. When you walk out of the front door to the street you are immediately surrounded by buildings of British Victorian architecture. This contrasting mix is a consistent theme in London through it's music, arts, language, food, architecture and people.
Walk to many of London’s key attractions. Hoxton, Brick Lane, and Shoreditch are literally on the door-step, where you’ll find art galleries, museums, boutique shops, bars, restaurants, cafes and markets. The Tate Modern, London Dungeon, The Museum of London and the Design museum are within walking distance. Both the heart of London’s financial district and the art and media centers are within minutes of the apartment.
The lift brings you to the top floor of a contemporary building, where the 60m2 suite sits with its two balconies, running the entire length of the apartment. One faces north with breathtaking views of the city the other faces south towards Aldgate and the River Thames. Frying Pan Alley is a walkway, which means the apartment although being positioned in the heart of bustling London, enjoys almost complete silence guaranteeing the perfect nights sleep.
The apartment is designed to modern standards with a fully equipped kitchen and bathroom, 32-inch LCD TV, DVD player, High speed WIFI internet connection and free-view cable television. There is also an iPod/iPhone/MP3 docking station so that you can enjoy your music. A collection of books and DVDs for both children and adults is also in the apartment for you to use whilst your here.
Please be aware that this apartment is in a building where people live regularly and therefore we ask you to respect quiet hours between 11pm and 8am, this doesn't mean that you need to be silent, just that this apartment is not suitable for parties or loud music between these times.
It takes 17 minutes via Liverpool Street’s Central line to get to Oxford Circus and the many theaters of London’s West End. The Central Line runs through the heart of London and stops five minutes walk from the apartment. Spitalfields market which is open everyday is also within 200 meters of the apartment.
There’s a luxury king size double bed in the bedroom and an extremely comfortable (and easy to use) king size folding sofa bed in the living room. Both beds are fitted with 4 luxury pillows of different sizes and softness as well as luxury bedclothes to ensure that no matter what you prefer your bed to be like, you’ll enjoy a good comfortable nights sleep here!
