This is a great place to stay if you are staying in London. Maggie was fantastic! She was quick to email me things to do, and answered all my questions. The apartment had everything you needed - truly Maggie has thought of everything. It was so thoughtful of her to leave a bottle of wine, fresh fruit, some milk and some treats for us upon arriving and a note with instructions.manuals (washer). The apartment is very spacious and the bed is comfortable, bathroom was a good size. I did a couple loads of laundry, (soap was provided) and it worked well. It was nice to have the extra space as we stayed for the weekend. It was also nice to be in a gated area with security...we even met a neighbour during our stay who was also helpful...Location was fantastic - couldn't have asked for anything more...We will definitely stay here again if ever in London again and will recommend to all our friends. Thanks again Maggie for everything!! Tracy and Henry CANADA.
I highly recommend this apartment to family of 3 or 4 (or even 5 in my case) who are seeking for a neat, clean, comfortable, quite, and safe lodging place in London with reasonable rental rate. It is at the east edge of central London near the Tower Bridge and the Tower of London, yet the nearby bus and tube transportations can conveniently take you to almost all the key tourist attractions in London. We felt the hospitality of Maggie the owner the moment we entered the apartment -- there was a plate of fruits and a bottle of wine welcoming us! The rooms are not spacious, I have to say, but cozy enough for my family's need. The coach is a futon that can sleep two teenagers. There is also an extra roller bed for a third little kid. There is even a balcony facing the quite garden in the center of the community. Too bad we didn't have much time really enjoy the relaxation there due to the busy itinerary. If I remember correctly, this apartment also has a cloth dryer, which is rare according to my impression while looking for apartments in London, Paris, and Italy. I felt this comes very friendly.
Although we never met Maggie in person but we felt how he owner cares about the apartment and her hospitality. If you are planning economical expense at lodging in London without sacrificing the comfort and safety of the staying, this apartment is certainly one of your options.
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.
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.
My wife and I stayed at Bowmansmews for 5 nights in May 2014. This was one of the best apartments we have rented, anywhere.
- 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.
- 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.
- No Ugly's
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 !
