Oyster Cards are the simplest way to get around London and are available to buy at Pimlico tube station.

St Georges Square: St George's Square was originally laid out in 1839 as two parallel streets running north-south but by 1843 had been developed into a formal square. It is currently London's only residential square open to the River Thames. The gardens are open for you to use. They are well kept and peaceful, and it's a perfect place to relax and read your Sunday newspaper in the sunshine.

Excellent apartment and experience.

  • 5 of 5

The apartment was perfect. The condition, appearance and the set up were all top notch.

The Owner was most professional and cordial. She communicated effectively before, during and after our stay. No issues whatsoever.

The apartment fit our family of four well. The two bedrooms, one with a king sized bed and the other with two twin beds, was perfect for us and the two children.

The location is very convenient to the Underground at the Pimlico station. Made our sightseeing of London very easy.

Would highly recommend this rental.

Wonderful flat in a great location!

  • 5 of 5

This garden flat is modern, spacious, well-appointed and located in a great part of London, close to the tube and bus lines. Good appliances including high quality washer and dryer. Una, the owner, is outstanding. She made sure our stay was excellent and was very efficient. Overall, we had a fantastic time in London and will definitely look to stay there again on our next trip! Be sure to take a look at this property if you are going to London.

lovely property, comfy beds, great showers

  • 5 of 5

Our family of 3 spent 9 nights in this lovely property at the end of May. We loved the location for evening walks along the Thames & being so close to Pimlico station made it a breeze getting around London. There are a couple of little convenience stores on the way back from the tube station where you can pick up some fruit, soft drinks & bits and pieces. We walked to the small tesco & waitrose about a 15 minute walk away but found they were pretty limited. We found that it was easier to catch the Tube 1 stop to Victoria station & if you look for the Cardinal place exit this takes you up to a lovely M & S including food so really we did a lot of our grocery shopping there. I heard there is a large Sainsburys in Wilton street but we never quite got there. About the flat. We found it to be very quiet and a really pretty location. The beds were excellent with lovely linens. The lounge room had plenty of room for the 3 of us to relax in & I really liked the fact there was the little central courtyard area where you could throw open the french doors in the 2nd bedroom and enjoy the fresh air. We loved living at this location. Una the owner was an absolute delight to deal with. She responded to all my questions in a really timely manner & really made our stay as easy & enjoyable as possible. The only down sides were that we had trouble with Mobile phone reception which of course is not the fault of the property rather that 3's coverage was rubbish right there in Pimlico. I found that I needed to go up on to the street along the side of the park before I was able to get coverage. That said the wifi in the flat worked well so keeping in touch via email was a breeze. We were surprised & disappointed with the fees for paying via paypal which added several hundred dollars to our costs in the end. Apart from that would highly recommend.

Exactly what you need!

  • 5 of 5

This apartment is in a great location. Super close to everything you need to get you everywhere. Perfect place to come home to (it does feel like home) after exploring the city. Best of all is UNA. She is so helpful and accommodating. From begining to end she is always there to help you. I would recommend her and her apartment to anyone.

An exceptional experience in central London

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I have just returned from 10 days in the UK, six of which were spent in this delightful flat on St. George's Square, Pimlico. There were three of us as my adult son was traveling with us on his way to enter Oxford. The apartment is a true 2 BR 2 bath unit with a spacious LR and small but very well fitted kitchen, with full size refrigerator, dish washer, expected small appliances (toaster, coffer maker, crockery, etc etc) oven, burners etc. Bathrooms are lovely and modern and recently refitted. As a whole, the apartment is beautifully decorated, with great natural light and a comforting sense of security.

We used the washer and dryer: functioned exactly as it should and was extremely helpful.

The location was what first attracted us to this flat: we know Pimlico and have stayed many times in a ginormous block of flats around the corner known as Dolphin Square. Half a block from the Thames, with a 15 minute walk along the bank to Westminster Abbey, this is right in the heart of central London, but is very green and leafy; and with a tube stop a block and half away, the entire metropolitan area is at your fingertips. This is a VERY good location from which to tour London.

Una, the landlady, is absolutely tops in communication: everything is well planned and executed, and she is very engaged in making sure everything works as agreed. My damage deposit was returned within 36 hours of departing the flat.

The only quibble, and it is slight, is that there is not very much bandwidth capacity. It comes in on copper, and then into wifi, and equates the speed of the old AOL dial ups. Now, this is perfectly adequate for one person at a time to check their email, and do a limited amount of (patient) surfing. If you have anyone else in your party online at the same time, be prepared to wait. But very much on the cyber plus side, the apartment has a wireless printer! This is becoming critical as booking museums, plays, concerts, whatever, online requires that you be able to print the tickets you just booked and paid for. The printer works through bluetooth and does not require you download any drivers. Worked great! and was an unexpected pleasant surprise.

We would certainly book this flat again, and do not hesitate to recommend it to all seeking a very comfortable apartment from which to experience London.
