TOWER OF LONDON & CITY APARTMENT - SPECTACULAR VIEWS OF TOWER BRIDGE

Photos and Description of this 2 bedroom holiday apartment in City of London Financial District - Tower View apt Central London

A luxury self catering apartment in the centre of London - Sleeps Up to 5

We are pleased to offer two luxury self-catering apartments in this Edwardian building, located close by the River Thames, with the world-famous Tower of London literally across the road, and the iconic Tower Bridge as our backdrop.

Our two-bedroom apartment can comfortably sleep up to 6 people, Plus an additional travel cot - appropriate for a baby up to 18 months’ old - available on request. Our one-bedroom apartment is bright and spacious, accommodating up to 5 people, again with travel cot available on request.

Both apartments are elegantly furnished, providing high-quality amenities and excellent value for money, given our prestigious

The Tower Hill location is ideal for both business and leisure visitors alike. For business visitors, the City of London financial district is on our doorstep. For leisure visitors, Tower Hill’s environs are steeped in history, from Roman times onwards, through the invasion of William the Conquerer, to the terrible exploits of Jack the Ripper, a short distance east in Whitechapel. We then come right up to the present-day architecture of the Shard and the Gherkin, both of which are within less than a mile’s radius and easily accessible, by public transport, taxi or on foot.

The area is well served by literally 100's of local restaurants to suit all budgets and sophisticated wine bars and London pubs. Sight seeing and the Theatres of the WestEnd are easily accessible by tube, bus or short cab ride. We aim to ensure that our apartments feel like your home away from home and our location next to the majestic Tower of London will leave you with fantastic memories and wanting to return!

The views from each room within these elegant apartments located on the 2nd and 3rd floors of this small, quiet and exclusive residential building are spectacular. The nearby Thames path enable guests to take a relaxing walk along the embankment and take in magnificent views as they walk to nearby St Paul's Cathedral, The Tate Modern, Covent Garden and the West End beyond.

Tower Hill has an abundance of high quality restaurants, which cater to every palate and every wallet. A short stroll past the 'Beef Eaters' (guards of the Tower and the Crown Jewels) you will find St Katherine's Dock filled with swanky private yachts as well a wide selection of trendy eateries. Just across Tower Bridge at Butlers Wharf you will find Sir Terrance Conran's famous group of restaurants including 'Pont De La Tour' (Fish) and the 'Chop House' (contemporary English food). Both these locations offer alfresco dining by the river for that perfect romantic and memorable evening spent watching the world go by with friends and family.

Perfect for sightseeing and business trips: From our apartment you can easily visit all the famous sites without need for a car. Trafalgar Square, Big Ben and the Houses of Parliament are approximately a 7 minute journey by Tube or 20 minutes by bus. This means that guests can easily access to the main tourist attractions such as St Paul's cathedral, Buckingham Palace, Trafalgar Square, Big Ben and the Houses of Parliament, as well as the National Gallery and British museum etc. Harrods and the hustle and bustle of all shopping along Oxford, Regent and Bond Streets are also a short journey by tube or bus but Tower Hill and the City also provide an extensive choice of shopping close by. The tour buses pass outside our front door if you want the thrill of seeing the sights from the famous London Red Bus!

The apartments are easily accessible from London's main airports (Heathrow, Gatwick, Luton and Stansted) by Tube, rail or bus within an hour.... and London City airport is just 25 mins using the Dockland Light railway

CITY OF LONDON / TOWER OF LONDON APARTMENT SPECTAC

  • 5 out of 5
Description was right on. Apartment was immaculate, well-maintained, nicely stocked, wonderful location. Right next to underground station making it easily accessible to both Heathrow and any location in London. Not only would we recommend, but we would rent again the next time we are in London. Nice restaurants locally and grocery store around the block.

LOVELY, BUT BETTER FOR 4

  • 5 out of 5
We were one adult and four teens and the spaces felt a bit cramped, so be prepared for that if you are all adult sized. One contributory factor was the sofa bed which was hard to raise and lower so we left it open a lot.

That is pretty much my only complaint however.

Location is great and view obviously unbeatable. Beds and linens comfortable.

I did hear the tube way beneath us but it didn't disturb my sleep and my kids never mentioned it so I don't think it's an issue.

With no booklet I had a little trouble getting the washing machine to start. Worked it out on second attempt. There were only two detergent pods which was a nuisance for five people since we travel light and wash.

OTOH, Fresh milk, bread, juice, butter and cookies were much appreciated. We were a bit short on liquid soap around the place but we managed so that was only a tiny niggle.

En suite shower in master was one of the best I have ever used in UK. A bit odd that you have to step up into the shower But it's a generous size with super flow which is more important.

I cooked in the kitchen and had no issues. Well supplied and appliances worked.

The flat is warm and we had hot weather so we opened windows a lot - the one in the twin bedroom seemed to be stuck but I created cross draughts with the other windows. Being London we had no problem with any bugs flying in.

There are several pubs and pizza and sandwich shops nearby (pubs closed on Sundays sometimes) and I was pleasantly surprised by the choices and the multiple small supermarkets so close to the City.

We left London by car and the Enterprise car rental at Tower Bridge is under 10 minutes and very walkable even with luggage in tow. The M11 and M25 are pretty much a straight shot East from the Enterprise office. It was only a 50 pound drop fee to return it to LHR when we flew home - well worth it.

Owner's Response: Thanks for your review. We are delighted that you had such a great time. We have many families of five staying in our apartments but its usually two adults (who take the kingsize bed in the main ensuite bedroom) while the 2 teenagers/children share the second bedroom (2 single beds) and the other uses the sofa bed in our (20ft x 20ft) living room. Like yourself many families appreciate the 'front row' historical location with added amenities of a fully equipped kitchen for a third of the price of the equivalent accommodation in nearby hotel rooms. I'm sorry that you could not find the instructions, which are stored in the cupboard in the kitchen. I think it would be helpful if these are left out on the bench on the first day in future. We are pleased that everything went so well and look forward to seeing you on your next visit.

A WONDERFUL STAY!

  • 4 out of 5
The apartment was everything it was described to be. Clean and well furnished and the location was spectacular. Martin was helpful and prompt when we needed him. We will certainly return.

One frustration: the apartment needs a binder with information on appliances. Martin did go over everything with us when we arrived but we were brain dead from our flight and could take very little in. Written information about markets, restaurants, dry cleaners, etc, in the are would also have made our experience a better one. A sharp knife would help, too!!

UNFORTUNATELY NOT EXACTLY AS WE HOPED

  • 1 out of 5
We were very much looking forward to our stay in this flat, and were persuaded by the many glowing reviews. We would not stay here again, however, or recommend it, unfortunately. First, several good points: the apartment was perfectly able to sleep the 7 of us, (although the bedrooms are not large, and several of the 7 are small children) and it is located a very short walk to both a tube and a National Rail station. And the Tower of London, of course. Martin, in my inquiries before arriving, was very prompt in responding. He did stress several times that we needed to clean the apartment before leaving to get our full deposit back, which we did, thoroughly. The downsides: the proximity to trains means that not only is the apartment a bit noisy, it's also very rumbly! The trains sound as if they're right underneath you, late at night and early in the morning. For light sleepers, ear plugs will not do the trick. Our check-in, as Martin was on holiday, was unlike any check-in we've experienced while renting flats in Istanbul, Rome, Florence, or Sevilla. Martin had asked us for patience in dealing with his trainee, which we extended. However, she missed our agreed upon early check-in time by 3 hours, and the flat was still being cleaned as we arrived. There is no booklet in the flat which lists phone numbers, local restaurants and grocery stores, and more importantly, info on how the appliances work. When we went to heat food for our children on one of our nights there, the oven knob came off in our hand. We could not figure out the oven or microwave or tv, despite arriving with technology-savvy teens in tow! After phone tag with the women in charge, we apparently had a daytime visit from one of them while we were out touring. Finally, when we arrived home, we discovered that our deposit had been docked. When I inquired why, as we left the flat cleaner than we had found it, Martin told me that we were being charged to replace a second set of keys. None of our group were given a second set of keys-- and wish if he were going to charge us for them we could have used them during our stay! They would have been so helpful. Martin and his team are nice enough, and his assistant upon checkout offered profuse apologies. However, the lack of a working kitchen was a bummer, as we rent flats for the use of a kitchen for a few meals. In addition, be aware you may get stuck with an "involuntary donation" for the flat's maintenance needs.
