Très bon appartement

  • 5 out of 5
Très bon appartement. On était comme chez nous, avec tout ce qu'il faut pour y vivre (télé, pc portable avec wifi, jeux, livres, etc.). Bref super bien équipé.
A noter l'excellente propreté.
L'appartement est à 200 mètres du métro et du bus 15 (le touristique). C'est calme avec vue des 2 côtés sur des jardins privés.
On était une famille avec 2 enfants. Ils ont adorés, nous aussi.
Attention toutefois, le grand lit du salon est en cuvette et de ce fait est plutôt pour 1 personne que pour 2.
Pour résumer, superbe appart.

Feel like a Londoner pure

  • 5 out of 5
7 stars :)
House very clean, comfortable, typical, with all necessary in order to feel a Londoner pure ingredients. Supermarket 5 minutes, 5 minutes to metro, availability of Oyster Cards (subway passes), computer, mobile phone, Maggie inclusive welcomes guests with fruit, some food and drink.
Tower Bridge, London Tower, City Hall, near the house and rest of the places in the city 20 minutes away by metro.
I, Bea, Monica and John were pleasantly surprised with so much on offer.
Back when visiting London, will stay again in BM.
Kisses to Maggie.

Quiet and Comfortable near Tower of London

  • 5 out of 5
My wife and I stayed at Bowmansmews for 5 nights in May 2014. This was one of the best apartments we have rented, anywhere.

The Good
- it's located in downtown London, walking distance (10 min tops) to the Tower of London.
- Similar walk to a big Waitrose grocery store.
- Very short walk to a couple of very good Indian restaurants and a short walk East Aldgate tube or Tower Hill tube stations and the DLR.
- The apartment is well furnished and comes with a full kitchen including a dishwasher and soap for it. It also has a washer/dryer combo including soap.
- There are a number of guide books and maps for your use.
- There is a balcony, over looking a nice garden (personal favorite).
- The apartment is on a Mews, so it is very quiet. There is restricted access to the grounds as well.
- The apartment comes with Oyster cards which are used for London transport. The Oyster cards have 2 benefits, obviously the speed at getting into the tube, but not so obviously, it is significantly cheaper to use the cards. You have to charge the card(s) with funds at a tube station, but you don't have to buy the cards as you are simply borrowing them from Maggie. There is also a cell phone you can use, a laptop and wifi.
- The owner, Maggie, is a wealth of information and exceptionally helpful.
- Finally a bottle wine, bowl of fruit, coffee, sugar, milk and other grocery items were there for us when we arrived.

The Bad
- There are 2 flights of stairs to get to the apartment. There is no elevator so if you are handicapped this could be an issue.

The Ugly
- No Ugly's

The perfect appartment for our trip

  • 5 out of 5
Nous avons passé une semaine vraiment géniale dans l'appartement de Maggie.

Appartement calme, confortable, chaleureux, très bien équipé, avec des cadeaux d'accueil (une bouteille de vin, une corbeille de fruits, des chocolats), un frigo et des placards remplis, sans oublier les nombreux plans de Londres, le wifi, l'ordinateur, les jeux de société, tout cela à 2 pas du metro, des sites touristiques, et de toutes les commodités, bref le rêve ...

Nos filles (8 et 10 ans) et nous sommes ravis et nous le conseillerons sans hésiter à tous nos amis !

Thank you very much Maggie, thanks to you our stay in London was awesome !

Gold Medal Location

  • 5 out of 5
Our family of 2 adults and 3 children (6, 10, 15) fit nicely into Maggie and Kiwi's apartment, located perfectly for our Olympic adventure. Short walk to Aldgate East Underground makes for easy transportation anywhere in London. You won't even need the tube to go to Tower Bridge, Leadenhall Market, St. Paul's, Spitalfield's, and other prime sites. They're all within reasonable walking distance, as are a small Tesco market and larger Waitrose for your grocery shopping.

Kiwi was waiting cheerily for us as we arrived ragged from a 10-hour flight, giving us the rundown on neighborhood, keys, appliances, etc. Apartment's laptop and mobile phone come in very handy! Maggie and Kiwi will keep you stocked with towels. Shower is great. Bedroom is very, very comfortable. Sofa beds provide a good night's sleep also. Our family had such a wonderful stay in London, almost three weeks, and this apartment was a big reason why.

This very well equipped apartment, in a quiet mews is amazingly will situated for visiting London, both by foot and public transport - boat, bus underground and the new Docklands Light Railway. It even has games and an excellent selection of books about London. There is nothing missing in the kitchen for preparing a gourmet meal although of course there is an unlimited selection of eateries within walking distance. A pre-ordered taxi (via internet) from Heathrow can be about £50. We were very warmly received by Kiwi who was available for any queries during our stay. A mobile phone, travel cards, lap-top and printer were available.
Awaking to the singing of the birds in the mews garden was an unexpected delight as was sitting watching the fish in the lilly pond.
I do not hesitate in recommending this property. Even the concierge was most helpful when I accidentally left my phone in the apartment after we checked out.
We enjoyed walking over Tower Bridge to the restaurants on the south side.
The Borough Market and renewed Globe Theatre are enjoyable destinations as well as the Tate Modern Gallery,just to give a taste of the possible excursions. We also enjoyed a visit to Greenwich via the Docklands Light Railway.
We had very favourable weather whilst we were in London but the easy accessibility of this apartment makes it a perfect place for all year round.
