Nestled between the two financial districts (City of London and Canary Wharf) on the North side of the Thames River, my City of London apartment offers the best of both worlds – close proximity to the action but without all the noise that’s usually associated with city centre living! It is situated on a small side street.
The property has wooden floors throughout and has a homely and contemporary feel. It is light and spacious and is able to cater for up to six people. There is a comfortable bed in each room, and the super delux blow up bed (it's the best on the market and is the same size and height of a 'normal' bed) can be made up if you have more than 4 people in your group. Alternatively if you require it for your group because two people don't want to share a bed, please advise and it will be provided. (There is an additional charge for this service as the provision of linen is one of our biggest expenses in London!) However if your group (up to four guests) is happy to use only the two beds, there are no additional charges.
Available for your use is a TV and DVD player, as well as a number of books, guides and other useful information to make your stay in the city as enjoyable as possible. WIFI internet is also provided.
Within a 15 minute walking radius you will find possibly the most famous of all London attractions, Tower Bridge (breathtaking up close), as well as the Tower of London (centuries of history), the award-winning Whitechapel Gallery which has just undergone a multi £££ makeover (founded 1901), Spitalfields (markets), Brick Lane (curry houses), St Katherine Docks (marina, restaurants) and dozens of restaurants, fast food outlets, bars, shops and parks. There are two large supermarkets, both of which are about a 4 minute walk away.
Situated in a very historic old part of London, the apartment is within a 5 minute walk to the local tube (subway/underground/metro) station – Whitechapel, on the East London (Orange), District (Green) and the Hammersmith and City (Pink) lines and the nearest DLR station is Shadwell, approx a 6 minute walk, with direct links to the Olympic site as well as Bank (city of London), Tower Gateway (Tower Bridge & the Tower of London) and Canary wharf.
There are also lots of bus connections going into the City of London (if you don’t want to walk the 20 minutes it takes), as well as buses to take you to Fleet Street, Oxford Street and beyond. Canary Wharf is also conveniently accessed either by DLR (overground train) or the bus, or a 30 minute walk along the riverfront. And if you really want to live like a local, there is always the option of hiring one of the thousands of blue (‘Boris’) bikes available in the city centre.

Échanges avec les voyageurs
Because of the size of my apartment, and it's central location, I have a lot of families, business people or couples staying. I realize that they usually just want to get on with their holiday with the minimum amount of fuss so I provide instructions for all the appliances in the apartment, as well as directions and maps and all sorts of things so you can come and go at your own time.. saving you money on long distance phone calls to me whilst you're away from your home country!
No shoes inside please (once you've seen the streets of London you'll understand why!) We also think it's more considerate to the people living on the floor underneath not to stomp around in shoes :-)
Please treat the home as if it was your own. It is a residential area so please be considerate of families etc who may have young children getting to sleep.
No smoking thank you. The smell of smoke lingers for years (as any non smoker will know!) It's better for your health and it'll save you some money!
And definitely no parties please otherwise I'll have to be a grouch and retain your deposit and I don't want to have to do that! :-)
In the apartment you'll also find some instructions on what to do upon check out. Please follow these - they're all very straightforward things :-)
