Overview

Photos and Description of this 2 bedroom holiday apartment in City of London Financial District - 15 Trinity Square

Both 2 bedroom/2 bathroom flats are in this same Victorian Period building.

Flat A - Penthouse Flat with Spectacular views of the Tower of London:

Well appointed, in elegant contemporary decor, this 2 Bedroom, 2 Bathroom, flat on the 5th floor of a late Victorian building (with lift) sleeps 4. It offers spectacular views of the Tower of London, Tower Bridge, & River Thames; as well as superb access to transport links taking you into the West End. The nearest tube station is just a 3 minutes walk away.

NEW: Flat B - Lightly refurbished along similar elegant lines to our original property, (Please see photos for Flat B, below) this flat is situated at the rear of the property. It therefore DOES NOT offer the same view as our current rental; but DOES offer the same standard of service, cleanliness, and comfortable accommodation.

In the heart of the City; both flats are perfectly located for the business traveller, and/or for those on a family* holiday, or quick sojourn.

PLEASE CLICK ON MORE DETAILS BELOW:

FLAT A: Penthouse Flat with a view - THIS FLAT SLEEPS 4:

The Master Bedroom offers a sumptuous king-size bed (with 'Tempur' mattress) while the second bedroom's zip & link bed can either be made up as a king-size, or divided into two singles (pictured) as required. We pride ourselves on our welcoming atmosphere, attention to detail and cleanliness.

We offer our guests Egyptian cotton sheets and towels, plus small touches of luxury (such as complimentary toiletries and Nespresso capsules) to add to your comfort and enjoyment. Four electric fans (two table & two floor-standing, which all garnered favourable comments during last summer's rare heatwave) are permanently placed in the apartment as this is a period Victorian building, and thus not air-conditioned. Staples include internet access, via a WIFI connection, as well as a replete stocked kitchen (cook and tableware.) Previous guests have been pleasantly surprised to find real wine glasses. Given a dining area which can seat six, this means you have a real alternative to eating out.

NEW: FLAT B - THIS FLAT SLEEPS 4, but can accommodate a 5th person

The Master Bedroom offers a king-size zip & link bed which can either be made up as a king-size, or divided into two singles as required (King = 180 cms x 200 cms - Singles = 90 cms x 200 cms.) The smaller second bedroom offers a double bed (135 cms x 190 cms.) Please note the diameter of the room is such that the bed is placed against the wall.

There is a single pull out sofa bed in the living room (90 cms x 180 cms) perfect for a child, or slim built adult.

This can be made available at an EXTRA charge of 5% on the rental balance.

We pride ourselves on our welcoming atmosphere, attention to detail and cleanliness. We offer our guests Egyptian cotton sheets and towels, plus small touches of luxury (such as complimentary toiletries and Nespresso capsules) to add to your comfort and enjoyment. Three floor standing electric fans are permanently placed in the apartment, as this is a period Victorian building, and thus not air-conditioned. Staples include internet access, via a WIFI connection, as well as a well-stocked kitchen (both cook and tableware.) Given a dining area which seats five, there is a real alternative to eating out.

IMPORTANT - PLEASE NOTE: There are building works being done on the heritage property opposite this flat. These are intermittently noisy works. The flat does have excellent double glazing and if the windows are shut very little noise can be heard in the flat.

.

LOCAL AREA:

There are many restaurants & bars within walking distance. From the family friendly 'Kitchen@Tower' (across the road) to restaurants which suit every palate, & wallet, the area is as rich with cosmopolitan life as with historical landmarks.

Within walking distance you will also find the Tower of London (home of the Crown Jewels and famous ravens) Tower Bridge, All Hallows church (from where Samuel Peyps watched and recorded the great fire of London) and the famous Leadenhall Market - (the covered market in Gracechurch street, primarily selling food and flowers as seen in 'Harry Potter and the Philosopher's Stone'.) St Katharine's Dock is just 200m east of Tower Hill Station, the O2 Arena is close by (DLR to the Canary Wharf, Jubilee line to North Greenwich) and further afield, world famous Oxford street is easily accessible within 15-20 mins via the Central Line tube (subway) from Bank Station which is a 5 minute walk.

Pop on the tube (subway) or the Docklands Light Railway (DLR) and sample all the other attractions London has to offer, from a perfect luxurious base in Trinity Square.

.

* While we are happy to welcome families with children, aged 4 and above, I am afraid we do not have the facilities to accommodate families with babies or toddlers in either flat.

* * When enquiring please include Arrival and Departure flight times - if known - and children's ages - if relevant.

* * * Please note we cannot accept bookings from parties travelling 'Stand-By' or 'No Res'.

Access to either property on the first day of your stay is by prior arrangement.

Whilst we prefer to check-in our guests in the morning - or at lunchtime - we can be flexible. Check-ins after 9:30 PM incur a late check-in fee, as per our booking form. Check-ins on CHRISTMAS DAY, BOXING DAY, NEW YEARS DAY, on the EASTER WEEKEND and other UK BANK HOLIDAYS are - unfortunately - not possible.

* * * * Please note: we list on more than one website. Thus, bookings shown on this calendar DO NOT always reflect our most recent, up to date, availability.

Please contact to enquire about availability.

~ THANK YOU ~

“No Worries - Delightful..!!”

  • 5 of 5

Our family of 3 have used VRBO and HomeAway for vacations over the years and have learned the importance of reading between the lines in the descriptions of the properties, as well as reading the reviews of others. This was definitely our best experience of a VRBO rental ever and you can rest assured that 15 Trinity Square is as advertised – and so much more.

The flat is spectacular; the views of the Thames and the Tower of London can’t be beat. It is so conveniently located – less than a block to the tube, boat and bus transportation, as well as central to most of the London sight-seeing venues. There is plenty of shopping for groceries nearby and restaurants are abundant and within walking distance. It is a very safe area and we had no qualms about walking anywhere, day or night. The flat itself was very clean and well equipped with high end appliances, linens, and everything with your comfort in mind.

Over and above the flat (excellent) the bright spot was dealing with Chris, the rental agent. The communication was outstanding throughout the rental process with timely responses to our emails. After we booked the property, Chris forwarded information about London with useful links for transportation and attractions. Upon departure our deposit was returned promptly – received by the time we arrived home.

This is an excellent choice for a centrally located London venue – a room with a view! Thank you Chris.

Perfect Location for Work in the City

  • 5 of 5

Great location. Located across form the Tower,mand walking distance to Lloyd's of London. Brought my wife with me for the week and this was perfect for both of us. She was able to catch the tube (stop under the building), get in a Thames ferry, or the Hoo on/hop off bus with in a few steps. I on the other hand was located next to the corporate hotel where we usually stay, so my foot commute was the same as always. Best part was that this was less expensive than the hotel.

Perfect Property; Well Located; Proactive Mgmt

  • 5 of 5

We found Flat 15 exactly as advertised. The listed description and photographs were so accurate that the moment we first walked in the door I felt as though I had been there before. Functionally the flat was very clean and well laid out with plenty of room for four people. Importantly, the kitchen and bathrooms were well stocked with all you need for a weeks stay. Having the Tower Hill tube station literally within 100 meters of the building allowed us to minimize travel time throughout London.

Being fortunate to be able to travel frequently we have had many opportunities to engage lodging through VRBO (and others) and I can say that in my experience the property management here is the best we have encountered anywhere. From the inquiry stage to the check-in process to timely emails containing references to everything from local grocery stores to transportation options to dining options to promptly responding to all email and phone calls all the way to the final email checking to make sure we received our deposit back (within 3 days of returning home I might add), I cannot stress enough how pleased and impressed we were.

If you are considering this flat I can only add my highest recommendation that, under the care of Chris, the property manager, you will not be disappointed.

Deserving of its 5 stars!

  • 5 of 5

We too had a wonderful stay at this flat. As an expat, my husband and I travel back to the UK regularly to visit family. On this occasion we decided it would be fun to stay in London and we invited my mother (in her 80's) to join us for part of our stay. She had no trouble with it being on an upper floor as there is a lift and all three of us couldn't have been happier with our choice of accommodation. Everything was as described and it is deserving of its 5 star reviews. The flat is well designed, comfortable and secure with every amenity. The views of the Tower and river are stunning with just a short walk to tube, bus and river transportation plus many places of interest. It was a pleasure communicating with the agent who had immediate responses to any question. It was helpful to be met by the housekeeper who obviously knew the apartment very well and who could help with any enquiry. We enjoyed our week very much and would thoroughly recommend it.

perfect location for our London vacation

  • 5 of 5

This apartment is absolutely perfect. We recently stayed there with our two teenage boys for one week. The apartment is very spacious and extremely well appointed. The location could not have been better, there is a train station around the corner and a bus stop just up the street we used both. It was very easy and convenient. From Heathrow airport we took the train right to the apartment (about 1 hour) super easy! The housekeeper met us at the front door and gave us a tour and information about the area plus answered all our questions - she was very nice. Chris was our contact and I must say she was fantastic - this was our first time in London and renting thru VRBO and she made the process easy and stress free, she was prompt and efficient to answer our inquiries. It was a very positive experience and I would definitely do it again. I guess the best testimonial I can give is that if I go back to London I would use this same apartment.

Superb London base backed by excellent organisatio

  • 5 of 5

Some say life is about building memories.

The views on the Tower of London and Tower Bridge will be indelible.

The secure, peaceful and quiet apartment was better than expected, clean and well-maintained.

The nearby Tower hill subway station provides easy access to the whole of London, one of the world's great cities.

Visits to East London and Docklands were themselves interesting.

The manager afforded polite and professional service without being intrusive.

This property is highly recommended.

Location

Nearest Airport

City Airport
Nearest Train
0.8 Miles
London Bridge
Nearest Motorway
5 Kilometres
M1
Car: not necessary

* ARRIVING: Both London Heathrow and London Gatwick airport are quite a distance from central London. Details of a car service can be provided, but this is a relatively costly option.

.

The most cost effective way to get to the flat/apartment from Heathrow Airport is to take the London Underground (Tube/Subway) - Piccadilly & then District lines - which will take you from Heathrow to the Tower Hill Tube Station (located just 100 yards from the flat.)

.

First take the Piccadilly line to Hammersmith. Then, at Hammersmith change to the District line, which will take you to Tower Hill. The change at Hammersmith is easy - you just walk across to the other side of the same platform, with no steps to negotiate. There are stairs to negotiate, up from the District line platform at Tower Hill, but there is a landing halfway up the flight of stairs.

.

Arriving from Gatwick is also easy: The Gatwick Express train runs to Victoria Station in central London. From there take the Circle or District Lines, both run directly east to the Tower Hill station. Alternatively, take a First Capital Connect train from Gatwick to London Bridge Station, and then a taxi across the river to Tower Hill. It's a mile away - approximately a 5 minute taxi-cab ride.

.

* SITUATED: Within walking distance of the Tower of London, Tower Bridge, All Hallows Church and near Leadenhall Market. St Katharine's Dock is 200m east of Tower Hill Station. Also close to the O2 (DLR to the Canary Wharf, Jubilee line to North Greenwich.) The tube/subway gives you access to the whole of London, from world famous Oxford Street, to London Museums, Palaces and the magic of West End Theatre.
