Southwark apartment description
Southwark is a very historic borough of London; it got its name in the 9th century, and was first settled during the Roman period.
Located directly south of the River Thames and forming part of Inner London, Southwark is home to many fabulous landmarks, including the Tower Bridge, the Millenium Bridge, and the London Bridge. Shard London Bridge, which is under construction, at the moment, will be the tallest building in the entire European Union when complete.
Also of note in this area are its many historic places of worship, including Charles Spurgeon's Metropolitan Tabernacle, Southwark Cathedral, St. Mary's Cathedral, and even St. George the Martyr, the oldest church in Greater London, dedicated to England's Patron Saint.
Another interesting tidbit about Southwark is that it's the place where novelist Charles Dickens grew up, and where many of his famed stories take place.
The Southwark Penthouse is a 699 square foot, 2-bedroom, 1-bathroom dwelling, located in a relatively new, well-built complex.
The living room is tastefully decorated, with a dining table, six chairs, and two sofas. For entertainment, there's also a flat-screen television, a DVD player, an MP3-compatible stereo, and high-speed internet access without restrictions as to the amount of data transfer taken place.
Both bedrooms boast Queen-sized beds, with quality mattresses, bedding, and linen, to ensure a good night's rest.
-South Bank, a significant arts and entertainment district, is only a short walk away.
-The Old Vic, a historic theatre that was established in 1818, is just 2 minutes by foot from the apartment.
-The Anchor & Hope, a wonderful, local gastropub, is 5 minutes away.
-The London Eye, which is Europe's tallest ferris wheel and the most popular paid tourist attraction in the United Kingdom, is only a short walk away.
-The Design Museum, famed for being the alleged first museum of modern design, is also in the area.
-Shakespeare's Globe, a reconstruction of the burned-down Globe Theatre, is one of London's best playhouses.
-Trafalgar Square, a public space that is often used for political demonstrations and community gatherings, is near to the apartment.
-Big Ben, the great bell of the clock at the north end of the famed Palace of Westminster, is just across the river.

Excellent location and a beautiful apartment!
We stayed in the apartment for 5 days (me, my wife, 18mth old and a 2 yr old). The location of the apartment was great as its only a few minutes walk from southwark tube station. The apartment is easy to get in and out of, key pad entry plus a lift. The apartment is quite spacious, the lounge / kitchen / diner was perfect for us all to play / eat in. the tv and wifi in the flat were perfect. most important thing for me: the shower worked and the pressure was good.

A central apartment and very nice
I loved the location, ideal for walking to the center. We touched the attic that has great views, two bedrooms with large double bed, well equipped kitchen and living room with sofa, table and chairs we had at every breakfast and dinner we did in the apartments. The apartment very clean and with all amenities. Certainly, if I repeat because London the quality / price excellent

a great spot in central londonGuest comment entered by owner
a great spot in central london
Highlights of this flat for us were: -plenty of space for 4 people. Unlike a hotel, we could spend time in the flat with comfortable seating. -clothes washer. meant we didnt have to pack very much, we brought a few days worth of clothes, washed and re-wore them. The drier function did not work as well, but we used the drying rack and fan, and that was perfect. -close to underground and regional trains at Waterloo station. We did day trips to Oxford, Windsor Castle and Salisbury, which was a great way to visit. -nearby markets where we could pick up things for simple meals which meant we could do some meals in which is faster and cheaper than eating out every time. -quiet neighborhood. We slept with the windows open, after 10, things got very quiet. -Nearby restaurants were good, but did close early, for late night or weekend dining, a short walk or underground ride was required. There are 2 pubs within 100 feet of the front door, which made grabbing a pint at the end of the day a breeze. -Our rendezvous with the person with the keys was very punctual. She checked to make sure everything was in order and then wished us well and was off. perfect. -apartment even included an iphone speaker dock which was a pleasant surprise. -Wireless internet was fast and free and was a great plus. -We stayed over a week, cleaning supplies were provided, and the flat was easy to clean. we found no need for the cleaning service. -Flat is on the top floor, and has an excellent lift. -A couple of things for improvement: Beds were soft and could be improved, we only had 3 tea cups, so had to take turns. These are easily corrected, and I expect they will be.

Comfortable apartment in fantastic locationGuest comment entered by owner
Comfortable apartment in fantastic location
Almost like a home away from home - it's very well equipped and comfy. We were travelling with our 8-month old daughter so we really needed to have a fully set-up kitchen and the ability to do (lots of) laundry: staying here made life very easy in terms of looking after a baby. Another good feature was the door between the living area and the bedrooms! Great for when we had friends visiting in the evening and our daughter had gone to bed. The location is brilliant - really easy to walk to lots of great tourist attractions, and public transport is also very close and convenient. Boutique London Lets were very helpful, made the whole booking and check-in process really easy, and responded to our requests extremely promptly. Great customer service, couldn't fault them. I looked around a long time to find a self-contained apartment in a good spot and I think that compared to many other places, this one was really good value for money, especially considering its size, nice modern interiors and its fab location. Would definitely recommend to families or, say, two couples travelling together wanting a bit of space to stretch out.

Very handy location and beautifully appointed
The apartment was ideally located for exploring London on foot or by tube and bus. Directions were simple to follow and the apartment was lovely. I was able to conduct business meetings there as well as bring the family for a little vacation. Great.

Highly RecommendedGuest comment entered by owner
Beautifully furnished and presented, very modern, good sized apartment (we were 4 adults and 1 baby). Large main bedroom with comfortable bed, standard size second bedroom, both lead on to a quite large balcony with a nice view that included part of the London Eye. Washing machine was a nice addition, and everything necesary in the kitchen with decent sized fridge. I believe the lounge was also a sofa bed too. Apartment is on the 6th floor with a lift. Access instructions were emailed quickly and ended up being quite easy to follow. Close to 2 stations (we used Waterloo underground to get everywhere), and some good places to eat and drink close by. Very nice, and scenic,10 minute walk along the boardwalk beside the Thames to the London Eye. Highly recommend this apartment

Excellent apartmentGuest comment entered by owner
Great apartment in perfect location - no hassles to book or on arrival - everything very clear - able to book an extra night easily by email the day before!! Only a couple of things could be looked at - there appeared a slight drainage smell in apartment and no storage in 2nd bedroom - also switch for fan in bathroom in an odd (high) spot. Available apartment info and Wifi great!!!

This is a clean, spacious, comfortable flat close to everything in London. I did my research before booking and seriously doubt there is better value for a flat of this quality anywhere in London.
