On site there 's an exclusive Italian restaurant, one of three restaurants on the piazza outside, plus a Deli Supermarket. On fine days meals may be taken seated around the piazza fountain. See the pictures.
The Underground is in view, across the street as is also Chef Gordon Ramsay's, 'The Narrow' for excellent food. (Please see our notes on the array of restaurants nearby. ) The apartment, located on the third floor, is all on a single level and is easily accessed via 2 elevators, located by the side of the reception. It's layout is all on one level so suitable for WHEELCHAIRS. It is fully equipped with all the necessities for modern self-catering life. It has two generous bedrooms and two hi spec bathrooms. A full kitchen plus dining area then lounge and balcony, makes for a comfortable open plan living style.

This apartment offers a private residence with many added self catering facilities. Alternatively, you may eat well and cheaply at the bistro outside the apartment building if cooking isn't for you. From early in the morning, outside on the piazza,' Verdi's Bistro' opens at 7am. It also sells groceries, it's open till 11pm. or there is a larger supermarket at Limehouse Rail Station, just 3 minutes walk. London can be expensive but there are some locations that cater for the frequent traveller. Check out Panton Street off Leicester Square for a 3 course menus for under £10. When last I checked, there were 3 or 4 eateries in Panton street, to choose from, offering different fare for families on a budget..
At the apartment you will find all you require to cook. There's a 4 plate hob, large oven with top grill feature, a separate microwave oven, toaster, full fridge, full freezer, dishwasher and a wash/dryer for your clothes in the hallway. There are full instructions for the use of the appliances.

Generally, they are staged as one super king bed in the bedroom with the en-suite bathroom and the second bedroom we stage as two single beds. This second bedroom is supported by a second bathroom just outside in the hallway. Both bedrooms can be staged to suit our guests requirements. `They also have seating and side bed tables and side of bed lamps. In the main bedroom, you will find a console table also, for a laptop and a private telephone for your use and for your families to keep in touch. They may also leave messages at reception if they call when you are away for the day. (We provide all this contact detail with the booking confirmation paperwork. There is a house telephone in the apartment hallway, should you wish to speak with reception at anytime.

We prefer to deal with our guests directly, allowing no middleman to add on their commissions. We deal with all payments directly having Merchant status with the bank who provide our private CREDIT CARD terminal or can process ONLINE PAYMENTS now via this holiday agent. Another method of payment would be via direct bank transfer.
We can also provide a reference for our hospitality via our 10 year membership of the ENGLISH TOURIST COUNCIL who advertise our two properties in their own web pages. They have vetted us each year and we have worked hard to maintain our 4* rating for the level of comfort we provide, throughout this 10 year period.

There is a video telephone in the apartment hall which allows you to speak to the reception should you need assistance and they also can phone you. perhaps just to let you know that your taxi has arrived. This contact with the reception, which is manned 24 hours a day, 7 day a week, can be invaluable. With the apartment being so close to town and the private layout of the apartment building, we often have senior citizens and wheelchair users choose to stay. Also., children are in a secure environment, they may play in the COURTYARD GARDENS which are overlooked by the properties cameras.

Things to do:
There are River Boat Cruises, or River Shuttle Bus trips to Westminster or down river to Greenwich are available every 15 minutes from Canary Wharf Pier. Along the River Thames are frequent shows, recently we watched some of the 1000 sailing craft of all types and style sailing past to join in the River Pageant for the Queen's Diamond Jubilee. It was superb.
Also, in the park at Canary Wharf there are frequent film broadcasts of the current Opera showing at Covent Garden. Garden. All for FREE.
Do check the local press for details as well as the apartment literature and the show literature in the reception, the chaps are there to help.
The 02 Arena is only 5 minutes away, with live concerts being shown most evenings. Pre booking is advised for most shows. There are lots of restaurants if you fancy just taking a look at the 02 arena facilities and checking out up and coming shows. There is also the International Exhibition Venue, Excel International nearby. All links to these places and lot of other tourist attractions are linked to on the apartment's dedicated web site,

The new Olympic Stadiums are close by and easily reached by train or car, in about 6 minutes.

Most of the London Museums are free now and also young children travel on the Underground for free, ask at the ticket office for age limits, last mention it was under 15 years to qualify.

Our local Airport, London City, will jet you away to the Continent. Local business men use the airport shuttle service whereby you just turn up, take a seat on the plane and pay on board the aircraft. Most European Capital Cities are within 30 minutes flight time.

The main train stations, i.e. London Bridge, Euston, Kings Cross can take you to other parts of England within an hour or so via fast Pendolino Trains. Making visiting other Cities in the Country easy and comfortable. Visit Brighton in 40minutes from nearby London Bridge (twice an hour for the service) Or Birmingham in 1hour 40 minutes, capital city to city. Fast and easy.

For just £3/5 take a bike from outside the apartment ! Free for the first 30 minutes you register your credit card, type in the code and take the bike across town. The London congestion Charge keeps most traffic light so bike riding is comfortable. Then park it up at one of the many bike stations within the 30 minutes and the service is free. A small cost if you take it for longer or just take another bike each 30minutes! Ten minutes gets you to Tower Bridge by cycle.
You will see lots of joggers in these quiet streets. The picture gallery has lots of shots of the area.

Black taxi cabs take 5 people for the one fare, if this is the preferred travel method, we can provide a local taxi company details for the Ionian Residents to any where in town, the residents, that's you, are afforded a preferential rate.

From our guests notes left, it is well worth visiting 'The Grapes' for a fresh fish supper, (booking is sensible as it's very popular and the second floor is good as it overlooks the River Thames. Just 3 minutes walk away from the apartment. Look out for the many celebs that frequent this Historic Smugglers Inn. (Tipping is only done when happy with the service and when it hasn't already been added to your bill, just check the last item for a hidden service charge, this may be 10 or even 15%. in my younger days I was often fooled by this and tipped twice without realising. We never tip in pubs, just restaurants really.
There are several high profile restaurants in the area, we have listed some in the Ionian Apartment dedicated web site. Most tastes are catered for and also budgets. The links will take you to their menu pages for reference.

Going to the Theatre, it's good to check out the half price formal ticket building in Leicester Square. That's the brick building in the middle of the Square. The tickets that aren't sold for the day are displayed for purchase at a price much cheaper than their ticket value. Check the seat placement along with the ticket price, all if you can visit the Theatre on the same day. Ask the ticket office for the free leaflet on the show.

There is so much free stuff in London, particularly for families, so do ask at your local Tourist Information Office before arriving in London as they often can provide vouchers for you to use with savings.

If I can help you further just ask, after living 20 years in this lovely Capital City, I can find my way around most places and I am happy to advise.
Thank you for stopping by, hope to hear from you. regards Christine James - Owner - Manager

Car: Not Necessary

Located in the most historical part of Central London, west of Canary Wharf in the popular Mosaic Centre, just two mins walk from Limehouse Rail Station, only two stops from Canary Wharf eastwards or 2 stops on the train west-wards to Tower Bridge. Nearby there's Limehouse Basin full of yachts and cruisers and across the street is the River Thames and two very famous 17th Century pubs. “The Grapes” and “Booties” are well documented and renowned locally for their suppers and traditionally brewed ale. (Going from our guests book, our guests dine at the Grapes frequently and recommend it over Chef. Gordon Ramsay's Gastro pun, 'The Narrow' nearby. ) The river shuttle bus travels from Canary Wharf to Westminster Pier or down river to Greenwich or to the futuristic Thames Barrier. It stops along the way, westerly at Tower Pier, Embankment and then Westminster, all in 10 minutes from Canary Wharf Pier.

Canary Wharf is reached via the Thames Riverside walkway. This is the heartland of London Financial City with one of the best shopping malls London has to offer. There are some 90 exclusive shops and as many restaurants. There are weekly events most of which are free. (5 meter square TV screens covered the Olympics for free.) Canary Wharf has parks and fountains, fine waterside pubs and eateries. A very relaxing place to browse and sip.

From Limehouse you can travel on the C2C (Coast to coast) main line trains to East of England's coastlines. They also travel West into Fenchurch Street Station, London's main City trading area. About 4 minutes travel time.

At Stratford and further out at Greenwich, you will find the new Olympic Stadiums. Stratford also has a large shopping Mall, namely Westfield Shopping Centre which was filled with competing athletes recently, to the delight of the shop assistants. 3 levels of air conditioned shopping with outside walkways, sculptures, fountains and parkland which lead into the Olympic areas. Well worth a visit. As is The 02 Arena, also an Olympic Venue this year. Besides the International Concerts you will find numerous restaurants and bars, even a sand pit for the children, so one can just browse what is on and soak up the atmosphere.

The 02 Arena is across the River thames via the local train, in about 5 minutes travel time from Limehouse Station on the DLR Line.

There is so much on offer from this location, travel to European Cities from City Airport, via their shuttle service, flights to all main european cities. Or travel on the Eurostar to Paris in under 2 hours train time, from Kings Cross. Get to Kings Cross Station in just 15 minutes. Or why not travel from London Bridge to Brighton for the day. Trains run twice every hour from London Bridge, the journey time is under an hour to Brighton. Many city workers travel in daily to work in London. All this as well as the attractions of London, it's many markets, Museums, Royal Palaces and Parklands. It's water pageants, changing of the guards, street entertainers and trendy clothing areas such as Carnaby Street. Still as good as in the sixties with small designers shops from here and around the world. For speciality areas we have trendy Covent Garden, Brick Lane for good Indian food, Camden Markets, Greenwich observatory, Borough Market for foodies, Billingsgate Fish Market for fresh fish from 7am till 8.30am most days. a few hundred meters away.

Lots more information is added constantly to our dedicated apartment web site. Recent additions would be the 'Boris Bikes' (our London Mayor is Boris ) the cheapest way to get around London is by free bikes, free that is for the half an hour. a bike docking station is at Limehouse Station across the street. You take one, ride away and dock it again where you arrive in town. Take another one 5 minutes later for another free half an hours cycling. They are all over town. The congestion charge applies to cars only during peak times so traffic in town is kept at a minimum. Fuller details on the routes to take are on our web site You do need a credit card to get started but this is so they get the bike back, the company who operate this service is Barclays Bank, so you don't have to worry about your card details.

Nearby we have Southwark Cathedral, St Paul's Cathedral, The London Mint, where the money is made, Tower Bridge and The Tower of London , you know what happened there! Lately, the Crown Jewels are kept here. Steeped in history, this area is is well worth a visit.

Other Activities: water sports, river cruising/dining, bird watching, Exhibitions centers, Multiplex Cinemas, Markets, Museums and Parks. We have many notable restaurants owned and run by Chefs from all over the World. Some are noted in the web site pages mentioned earlier with links provided so that our guests may book ahead. On the door step at the apartment we have 'La Figa', a fine Italian, as well as 'Verdi's' a Deli Bistro, a Dry cleaners and a small Deli supermarket.


Manager info

Year Purchased: 2004

About: Hello, I was living in London for some 20 years, working and driving into town each day from this location, it was perfect for a single business woman. Having recently moved to the Midlands of England I still commute having family nearby and have built up a fascinating business renting out this property. Folk come from all over the world and it keeps London alive for me as I am able to speak from first hand experience on aspects of London life and what it has to offer the visitor. There have been many changes to the skyline over time but it still retains it's exciting atmosphere, just listen in to the many languages and drop into one of the many eateries serving special cuisine from Vietnam to Japan. From the apartment front door, walk along Narrow Street to find a 16th Century Smugglers Inn, 'The Grapes' which is well documented in travel brochures. Nowadays, it's owner is thespian actor Sir Ian MacClelland and he can be spotted in his pyjamas polishing the stained glass windows for a special party. They serve excellent fish from nearby Billingsgate Fish Market, but do book or get there early. Indeed, all the local restaurants serve excellent fish from this famous market. If you are an early bird why not pay them a visit. Open to the public from 7.30am you may breakfast on poached eggs on smoked Haddock. They sell the very large King prawns or perhaps Seabass would be more to your liking? Just half a kilometre away, perhaps organise a taxi at reception to collect you.

Why Tower Hamlets:
Hello, we purchased this modern apartment to back up our rental activities in London. I have been active in this industry for 11 years now with notable success. Having lived and worked in London as a young women for 20 years I was well placed to choose the best area and facilities to suit young families and business folk wanting privacy, ease of getting around town with an eye on expenditure while at the same time wanting the best facilities. The apartment is bright and airy with full self catering facilities, two large bedrooms, two full bathrooms, off a wide corridor. The living area is open plan. The full kitchen leads into the dining area and then on to the lounge with it's french windows that open onto the balcony and the gardens outside. There's the 'Limehouse' rail station in view across the street. Look to the left for London's skyline. This area had always been a favourite of mine with it's smugglers Inns and nostalgic cobbled streets, often a drop off point on the way home from work in town. My friends and I would sit and sip in the pubs on the River's edges and contemplate holidays and weekend plans. It is close to the tube, Limehouse, which also has an overhead line C2C, one stop into the City area, Fenchurch Street, or you can travel to the English East Coastal parts. On the tube, you can get into London's centre via two train stops, (that's 4 minutes) then travel where ever in town you wish. Fast and easy. Nowadays, there are joggers in these quiet streets and cyclists. Most of the area has been revamped leaving the Historic Inns and riverside walks. There are new restaurants a plenty, Chef Gordon Ramsay has purchased the Pub across the road which is now revamped and called 'The Narrow' after the street in which it sits. Jamie Oliver's 'Jamies Place' is a few minutes walk away in Canary Wharf and there are many others. Please visit my dedicated web site for much more information and many pictures. refers

The Unique Benefits at this Apartment:
The special features of this location is it's close proximity to the attractions of town. There are also nearby venues such as The International 02 Arena, the new Olympics Stadiums, at Stratford; the New Billingsgate Fish Market that serves you and the whole of London's best restaurants; The Excel International Exhibition Centre, plus the London Markets, Royal Parklands; all within a few minutes walk or travel via train. We have Many Churches in town, to suit all religions. We have Premier League Football matches, Millwall; Tottenham Hot Spurs; West Ham; Fulham; Crystal Palace; and many more. There's The Oval Cricket Ground and of course Wimbledon Tennis Club. Locally, we have water sports venues: Jet Biking at King George's Dock; weekend sailing from the many up river clubs. Fast motor boats and of course the cruising ships where you may dine and listen to the commentary of the passing historic places, that float by. The River Shuttle Boat runs every 15 minutes from Canary Wharf Pier and gets one to Westminster in 10 minutes. A very enjoyable trip, stopping at Tower Gateway (Tower Bridge) the Embankment (for the London Eye ) and then Westminster Pier for the Royal Parks and Palaces, plus Parliament and Big Ben.
