Overview

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

Luxury self catering apartments 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 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.

Great Stay...Would definitely come back!

  • 5 of 5

Great place to stay! We choose this apartment because of its location to the city and metro station. Yes the apartment is not right in the center of the city, but it is still in the city and the tube is pretty easy to navigate. The metro station, Tower Hill, is literally across the street (takes about 3-5 mins to walk there since the entrance is around the backside). The place is spacious and clean. The pictures are accurate, you can literally sit on the couch and look out the window to see the Tower Bridge!

The cable and internet worked great, the bedrooms were a good size, and the bathrooms were just fine too. The only minor complaint I have, but really is nothing, is that one of the single mattress' in the 2nd bedroom (not the master) needs to be replaced soon since it has lost almost all of its spring!

Martin, the owner, does a great job communicating with you about everything as well! Would definitely recommend and if I am back in the future would definitely book again!

Truly incredible views! Fantastic stay!

  • 4 of 5

You simply cannot beat the location this flat provides. The easibility of it is marvelous. There's a tube stop across the street virtually. It's a great spot to haul a black cab. Don't listen to the reviews about the tube vibrating being a bother. You can barely feel it! The flat was perfect for our needs and well appointed... The master has an equivalent of a US Queen sized bed. As I looked at the pictures I mistakenly thought it was a US King sized bed... But that was my fault, not Martin's.

Everything with check in went very smoothly. It was a great rental. There's a great little pub very close by which was great to unwind after a long day. Three or four options for a "grab and go" breakfast within steps.

Stay in London

  • 5 of 5

Property was great location with the tube right around the corner. Which was very important to us as we are in and out of the location during the site seeing that we did, and the fact that we did not have to worry about the winter weather because of the short distance from front door and the tube.

View of the London Tower is great.

Property was clean and convertible and just the right size for my wife and I during our stay. Acted like a nice suite for us.

We felt very secure and safe at this location also. Will use them again at the next stay.

Great apartment, best equipped, feeling home

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here at 6 (with our 4 mature children) in this perfectly equipped apartment for nearly a week. Clean, very goog equipped, all functioned perfectly. Warm welcome by the owners in advance. For us it was the perfecthome base to explore London. The view to Tower and Tower Brige makes your day already from its first hour to the last - that compensates the noises from the street when windows are opened. We would come back always when being privatly in London. Best choice!

Owner's Response: Thanks for another glowing review! The apartment is unusually spacious for London and so I'm pleased that the 6 of you felt comfortable. Guests return frequently due to the enviable location being so close to the river and yet providing rapid access to all London has to offer. We are so fortunate to be within easy walking distance of 6 underground lines with bus and river boat stops right outside. I guess the advantages of being in the middle of the city yet having the ability to shut out the noise with our double glazed/sound proofed windows means that customers can enjoy the views and location without being disturbed by the noise outside. Best wishes and we look forward to welcoming you back to London real soon...

Amazing location!!! Can't wait to return!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed 5 days. The listing is very accurate. I was afraid it was too good to be true! It is a great location. The apartment is very nice, well equipped with all the necessities to include tea, cocoa, etc. Jane even left us milk, juice and bread upon arrival. Everything was very clean (I'm pretty picky). The only thing I would change would be to add some coat racks on the wall and towel racks in the bathroom! The tube runs below the bldg and you could hear it but after a day or two I didn't even notice. I'm already planning a return trip and will definitely stay at Martin's place.
