Great location and nice clean, good sized flat with all the amenities one could want.
This is a wonderful apartment. Close to St. Paul's, transportation and walking distance to many museums- the Tate, The Museum of London, The Guild Hall- to name a few. While it is true that there was a lot of construction going on they didn't start until 8 and were done by 6. And we weren't around when they were working. We were met promptly, the apartment was clean and well supplied with everything we needed.
This flat served as our home base for the first week of our two-week London adventure and was clean, spacious (for 4 people), and very accessible!
As others have mentioned, this flat is right in the heart of a construction zone (yep, still happening as of November 2016), but that shouldn't be too much of an issue for visitors who will be out sightseeing for most of the day. It is otherwise a great flat full of many supplied conveniences (free wifi, full kitchen w/utensils, washer/dryer, etc.) and is well within walking distance of two major tube stops and many of London's big sightseeing locations.
Klara, our greeter, was awesome! Some issues with our arrival made us much later than planned, but Klara kept in communication with us and was extremely accommodating with her time. She helped us get settled and proved to be very easy to contact whenever we needed anything.
All in all, we had a great experience and would gladly recommend this flat!
We had the most wonderful experience staying at this beautiful apartment. But Marcela and Klara went above and beyond making our stay perfect. From hand delivering our tickets for the Palace theater to giving us detailed instructions of what trains to take to the places we wanted to visit. The apartment is just like the pictures described - very clean and well maintained with everything you need. So close to tube stations. St. Paul's, Tate museum, Globe theater, etc. Just great for us to discover London. We hope to come back (from US) in the future and can't imagine staying any where else except this lovely apartment.
The flat was perfect for two couples sightseeing in London for four days. The excellent location is a few minutes walk from St. Paul's and the Millennium Bridge. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and would recommend it to fellow travelers.
Our family of 6 stayed here for 12 days and it was a great apt. Good location, and very good accommodations. Every thing we needed was provided along with a ride from the airport to the apt and a use of a local cell phone. Even though there was a large construction 5 feet from the apt, it was very quiet in the rooms. We will definitely consider this the next time we are in London.
This is a very spacious and clean apartment, well lit and nicely decorated. The location is excellent, very close to underground stops and the London Museum. We were so grateful for the person who met with us when we arrived, and she walked us all through the apartment helping us learn where everything was. Highly recommended or adults traveling together or business travelers.
The property is ideally located for the City or St Barts with easy access to the West End and a short walk to SouthBank.
The property is ideally located just moments from a whole host of local amenities in addition to the fabulous Smithfield market, St Paul's Cathedral and the many surrounding fashionable bars and restaurants. The nearest underground stations are St Paul's (Central Line) and Farringdon, Barbican (Circle Line, Hammersmith & City line and Metropolitan line).
The City is 5 min walk, Bartholomew Close and the Law Courts nearby and the history of London's Roman ancestry all around. The Millenium Bridge walkway leads from St Paul's across the river.
St Pauls Cathedral: Located within 300m, the present St Paul's is the fifth cathedral to have stood on the site since 604, and was built between 1675 and 1710, after its predecessor was destroyed in the Great Fire of London. This was the first cathedral to be built after the English Reformation in the sixteenth century, when Henry VIII removed the Church of England from the jurisdiction of the Pope and the Crown took control of the Church's life.
Among the events marked at St Paul's are royal occasions. In 1897 Queen Victoria chose to commemorate her diamond jubilee here. More recently Queen Elizabeth II has celebrated her jubilees at St Paul's , and also her 80th birthday in 2006. Royal weddings have been held here as well: the marriage of Catherine of Aragon to Prince Arthur in 1501 and famously the wedding of HRH the Prince of Wales to Lady Diana Spencer in 1981.
Millenium Bridge from St Pauls to Tate Modern: The Millennium Bridge, officially known as the London Millennium Footbridge, is a steel suspension bridge for pedestrians crossing the River Thames in London, England, linking Bankside with the City. It is located between Southwark Bridge (downstream) and Blackfriars Railway Bridge (upstream). The bridge is owned and maintained by the Bridge House Estates, a charitable trust overseen by the City of London Corporation. Construction of the bridge began in 1998, with the opening on 10 June 2000.
The southern end of the bridge is near Globe Theatre, the Bankside Gallery and Tate Modern, the north end next to the City of London School below St Paul's Cathedral. The bridge alignment is such that a clear view of St Paul's south facade is presented from across the river, framed by the bridge supports.
The Barbican Centre : The Barbican Centre is the largest performing arts centre in Europe. Located in the City of London, England, the Centre hosts classical and contemporary music concerts, theatre performances, film screenings and art exhibitions.
