Overview

Photos and Description of this 1 bedroom holiday apartment in St Katharine's & Wapping - Tower Bridge Studio

100% of people said they would stay again 'TRIP ADVISOR'

The Balcony gives a side River Thames view, so you can watch the boats sailing by in the evening after a walk along the stunning famous and Romantic South Bank River Path.

The view DIRECTLY in front of the balcony is Europe's tallest building called 'The Shard'. A balcony with both these views in London is RARE!

The River Path is next to the apartment. This leads to most things you will want to see ... The River is very long so make sure you are staying at the central part of it...ALWAYS check the Google map!

As you can see from the photograph, the River path leads all the way to The London Eye.

On the River Path: (see my photographs)

The Shakespeare's Globe

The Tate (free entry)

St Paul's Cathedral

The Tower Bridge

HMS Belfast Museum Boat

London Bridge

The Oxo Tower

The London Aquarium

The London Dungeon

Cross over the bridge and you are on Charing Cross Road and into 'The West End'

The studio is 441 Square Foot or 41 Square Metres.

Immaculate throughout (read our reviews) and modern.

We have unlimited Wi Fi

Free International Call (Most of Europe, USA, Australia, New Zealand, Japan)

You can also use our Britsh Mobile/Cell Phone (just 'Top Up') at the shops, this

means that you can take it out with you and then you will not get crazy International Roaming fees!

There are four ways to make coffee if you are a big coffee fan like me!

The best in my opinion is the gorgeous Italian De Longhi

Expresso/Capuccino Maker then there is a stove De Longi Expresso maker and a caffetiere plus normal instant with the kettle. A full tin of Illy Coffee, fresh milk (or coffee mate creamy powder) sugar and sweetners and croissants will be waiting for you.

Kichen

Brand new pans and frying pan bought in February 2016, Oven, Grill, Microwave, Sieves, Blender, Dishwahser, Can Openers, Bottle Opener, Scissors, Chefs Knives, Cheese Grater plus many extras!

Quite place to stay with the family

  • 4 of 5

When we arrived to the appartment the housekeeper welcomed us and explained us all the necesary information concerning the appartment, the supermarket and so on. Since the first day we felt very confortable. The location is pefect. We enjoied very much the walks along the river side upto the London Eye. The night view of the London Bridge is absolutely marvelous.

The metro is not far away so it is very easy to reach any part of London.

And after a long day, the appartment offer a nice place to rest. The owner offers coffe, tea, toileteries, towels, linen, bed sheets, dishwasher and washing machine (with the cleaning products necesary). Not to mention all the maps and guiding books you can use during your stay.

As a summary, a perfect place for the three of us. Definetely we recomend it.

Fantastic apartment - great waterside location.

  • 5 of 5

Loved everything about the apartment - comfortable beds, well catered kitchen (cooked a nice meal first night there), good bathroom with loads of towels for everyone,, balcony that lights up in the night, views of the Thames from the balcony. Location is perfect - very close to Tower Bridge. Had a fantastic few days in London, caught the clipper boat to Greenwich which is fab place. Did alot of walks along the river, visited Southbank where the wonderful Globe and National Theatre can be found as well as the BFI. Went to Southwark theatre and saw a great play - edgy, comical and tragedy all rolled into one. People very friendly - husband even tried some jellied eels - he says that he liked it! If you are coming to London, then you should rent this wonderful apartment, the owner is so friendly and helpful, making your stay in London, even more special - thanks Karen, it was lovely meeting you - we will be coming again - soon, I hope! :)

We had a very good holiday in London. Very nice weather, good shopping, great food and nice to come home and relax in your appartement, where we didn´t miss a thing. We loved it. It was great with the balcony. The whole place was clean and functional. It was lovely with the quiet neighborhood.

Wonderful experience!

  • 5 of 5

Well appointed studio, chic, clean, and with everything you will need and some more. The owner (Karen) is responsive and very helpful. Her customer service is excellent. The studio is conveniently located to move around the city, major London attractions (Tower Bridge, Tower of London, London Eye) and with just a six minutes walk to the closest Underground station. The bed (Murphy bed) was comfortable with impeccable linen. I never open the sofa-bed so I cannot comment on that. The space seems adequate for the enjoyment of a couple, and even a couple with a child, although no privacy since it is a studio. This was my first time in London, so this stay was like any first impression....I would definitely go back and stay exactly here!

Your balcony at the studio gives a side River Thames view, so you can watch the boats sailing by in the evening after perhaps some serious shopping - or a walk along the stunning famous South Bank River Path.

The view directly in front of the balcony is Europe's tallest building called 'The Shard' and you can now go to the viewing point at the top! It is higher than The London Eye.

Outside space is a rare luxury in London especially with a river view and iconic view! The River Path starts at your Front Door ! This leads to most things that will probably be on your list ! The River is very long - make sure you are staying at the central part of it...always check the Google map! As you can see from the photograph, the River path leads all the way to The London Eye. On the Path are: The Shakespeare's Globe, The Tate (free entry) St Paul's Cathedral, The Tower Bridge, London Bridge, The Aquarium and The Saatchi Gallery. Cross over The Bridge at The Eye and you are on Charring Cross Road/Covent Garden/Theatre Land/Piccadilly Circus. A unique oppurtunity at an amazing price

Other Activities: All official London walks and bus tours start in front of The Tower Of London just across the bridge.
