About the property

2 Bed, 2 Bathroom with amazing views over London. Close to transport links

Welcome to your new home from home during your stay in London. :) We are very grateful that you are considering to stay at our home. You will find our place warm, cosy, comfortable and the wow factor from the view of the London skyline during the day and night will have you mesmerized for a long time.

My wife and I take care and pride in hosting. We like to make you feel very welcome and are always on hand to give you advice or help if required. We welcome you to our home as guests and hope that you leave as friends :)

Below is a description of the amenities. However, if you have any questions please fire away.

Sitting on the 15th floor, this apartment gives breath-taking views of the Capital as well as a clean, comfortable place to stay. A wooden-floored entry hall leads into a spacious, open-plan living/ dining/ sitting room. With modern appliances and equipment, the kitchen has everything you'll need to make meals from home. Enjoy a morning coffee from the coffee maker at the breakfast bar.

There are two comfortable, and carpeted, double bedrooms with good storage space, and two bathrooms (one is en suite).

On sunny afternoons, you might like to take a drink out to the balcony and watch the sun set, while taking in the fantastic views. There's an even larger roof terrace on the top floor of the building.

Guest Access

You have access to the apartment, communal areas and the rooftop terrace.

Getting around

Canary Wharf is about a 15 minute walk or a few mins on the DLR (metro). Here all of your shopping needs will be catered for - whether its a supermarket, department store, newsagent or clothes boutique you're looking for. There is a huge number of restaurants and cafes too.

The Olympic village in Stratford is also a short distance away. Here you will find a massive Westfield shopping mall packed with shops, restaurants and bars.

Langdon Park DLR is about a minute's walk away and you can reach Bank station (for Central Underground line) in just over 10 minutes. Oxford Street is no more than 30 minutes away!

Guestbook comments from the owner

We spent 4 great days in Hem' place on our last trip to London. The appartment, located in a secured building, was spacious enough for our family ( 2 adults and 2 teens) with 2 bedrooms ( and confortable beds) and 2 baths. All look very new and no need to say very clean. View to London is better than the pictures show, and on a sunny and warm week end we enjoyed the west oriented balcony and access to the roof top terrace. Public transports connections are great, either to center of London or to Stratford (for the shoppping addicts:)), with DLR stations 2 min walk from the apartment, and trains all day long every 5-7min. If feeling like using the full cooking furnitures, the supermarket (and daily market as well) is less than 2 min walk. Still the appartment is very quiet, as we are high above vs the street. Secured parkings are available as well less than 10min walk in the area if travelling by car. Last but not least, Hem makes you feel like visiting friend, showing flexibility on the check in and check out times, checking regularly during our stay if everything was ok without being intrusive, ready to help if any question....Definitely a place I will keep in my favorites! Hem, thanks again for leaving us your great place, this contributes to our great memories of that long weekend to London!

Best of the Best

  • 5 of 5

We have rented many flats in London over the years from VRBO. Our experience this time has been among the best of the best. The flat is extremely comfortable, beautifully furnished and equipped with everything we needed during our visit. To say that the views from the flat are phenomenal is an understatement, and the 360 degree views from the roof top even those. It was truly a home away from home for us, and reflected the warmth and charm of Hem and Pooneh, the owners. Hem provided us with a wealth of information about the workings of the flat and the building, as well as the area. He was clearly interested that we enjoy our stay, and went above and beyond what most landlords would do, accepting packages for us that arrived before we did and asking that we text to let him know we had arrived home safely.

We found the location perfect. There is a full grocery within five minutes walk, as well as a bakery, several butchers and a small open market area. The DLR (Docklands Light Railway) stop is a two minute walk down the street, and the Canary Wharf Shopping Center (with tons of restaurants, along with other shopping) is practically in the backyard. This was our first experience with the DLR, and we found it easy to use and simple to connect with the Underground.

We loved staying here and highly recommend this flat for its location, comfort and for the friendliness and helpfulness of the owners.

JIm, Ted and Eva

These accomodations were just that, amazing... Hospitality was outstanding... The 2nd leg of our flight was delayed delayed we arrived very much behind schedule... We were greeted buy a gentlemen that had waited a long time for us and he greeted us with a smile... We had a very comfortable room however the 2nd bedroom had a very small bed that might be a problem for a couple... Kitchen is very accommodating... Everything you need is there and Hemal supplied us with some breakfast food that was a very nice touch... Location was great because it was it is only a couple of stops to Queen Elizabeth Stadium our ultimate destination for 11 days, sometimes twice daily... The magnificent vista was very special, we had a great look at the Shard, Walkie Talkie and so on... It was a pleasure to leave Stadium and be back in apartment in 15 minutes... Getting around was made very easy because of location... Hemal, I want to thank you for a very enjoyable experience... It was a pleasure to meet you and stay in your home...

Owner's Response: Thanks for the review. Jeannine stayed along with 3 other guests. They visited London during a time when we had 3 or 4 of the hottest days on record. It was 32C or 90F and in London this can feel warmer due to the humidity. This is why they had to sleep with the windows open. Normally, summer temperatures do not get this hot and you can sleep comfortably with the windows closed so will not be affected by any noise. Thanks again for choosing my apartment for your vacation in London.

Great trip excellant accomodations

  • 5 of 5

The apartment could not have been better. The view is truly amazing the lights of Central London and Canary Wharf are worth the stay alone. The apartments was in a secure building which was a positive, the building staff were friendly and helpful making coming and going very easy.

The apartment itself was very clean and inviting with new furnishings. The appliances were new and everything we needed to prepare the few meals were there for us to use. The beds were comfortable with clean soft linens and comfortable pillows.

Hem was a very attentive and made sure we had recommendations for restaurants and that our stay was everything we could want. Hem even arranged for a birthday cake to be in the apartment on the counter when we arrived. The trip was a celebration of my friends birthday, the surprise made her day.

I can without hesitation recommend this rental to anyone traveling to London, you will not be disappointed.

Wonderful vacation

  • 5 of 5

The place was great and had all of the amenities you need, close to stores and bakeries. We used uber to get around the city, it was cheap, reliable and most attractions were close. The VIEW WAS AMAZING, our family took turns sleeping on the couch just to look out the windows. Our host was wonderful he went out of his way to make sure our needs were met and checked in to see if we needed anything. Would highly recommend for a short get away or a long vacation. My mom was in a wheelchair and was able to easily get in and out of the flat very refreshing.

Perfect for our London visit

  • 5 of 5

The apartment was clean, well equipped, comfortable with lovely views from the large windows. Being close to a grocery store and the train depot made our stay really easy. The owner was readily available via email to answer any questions that came up during out stay.
