We had a great time in London and that dues in part to this apartment.The apartment is very well equipped with everything needed. We found the flat very comfortable. Food shops ,supermarkets are very close and the Borough market nearby . The owners are easy to contact and ready to answer to any question. Tube with easy connections to the rest of London a two minute walk from the apartment complex. We had a great experience and I wouldn't doubt in recommending this flat to others.

The flat was very nice, modern, spacious and comfortable for its size. It was quiet being on a side street. Location was very convenient to the Tube (less than a 5 minute walk) with some good restaurants and the Borough market nearby.
