Recent City of London reviews

  • Convenient Location, Great Value!

    "This flat is centrally located in London and is within walking distance of many of the major tourist attractions throughout London (we walked a loop from the flat to Tower of London, Tower Bridge, Globe Theatre and back to the flat over a day quite enjoyably). In addition, the flat is very conveniently located close to 3 London Underground Stations (St. Pauls - 7 minutes, Farringdon - 5 minutes, Barbican - 3 minutes). I recommend during the week to use Barbican, it seemed to us a little less congested versus the others. There are numerous restaurants, pubs and a grocery store all within less than a 5 minute walk as well. I would caution that since this area is predominantly commercial, I noticed many of the restaurants cater to a business crowd so quite a few of them were closed (or closed early) on Saturday & Sunday. You are immediately across the street from Smithfield Market which is a massive, wholesale butcher market (which you can visit - go before 8 AM, it's really interesting). As a result, trucks are constantly loading/unloading from about 10:00 PM to 2:00 AM on the street below, but the windows are pretty well insulated and the noise isn't too bad. Our group consisted of 2 adults and 3 teenage children, and the flat layout was perfect for our family. Communication with the owner was exceptionally thorough, the explanation of the facilities, transportation, etc. was one of the most thorough I've ever received from a VRBO owner! I would definitely recommend this flat for a family or small group of adults. With a lift in the apartment, it would also be very suitable for older guests as well. In talking with other tourists I met on our travels, I concluded that this area is probably one of the most convenient in London for tourists. Not touristy, but very convenient to all of those attractions. You see a bit more of "real" London this way. I would not hesitate to rent this flat again!"

  • A Posh Pad in The City

    "You will be very pleased by this posh pad. Not only is the unit comfortable and spacious, the location is perfect. The neighborhood is quiet, yet central to just about everything you would wish to access. During the day, the City is bustling with activity, yet there are no pubs within listening distance to provide you with potentially uninvited evening ambiance (there are plenty of pubs within a 5-minute walk, but you don't hear them). With the Bank tube station around the corner, we expended little effort visiting all our favorite haunts. The central living space is two stories grand and, frankly, made us feel a bit like a royal. With the large arched windows and the ornate ceiling, one might think this was simply an elegant extension of the church next door. The kitchen is easily serviceable and the bedroom is right-sized comfort. There are other units in the building, but you could have fooled us because we never heard anyone else. The front entrance hall provides a nice place to adjust your soul from outside to inside which enhances the living space all the more. I must admit that I had trouble with the washer and dryer setup. I think most of the trouble was self-inflicted because I am American and despite years of travel to London. I have never figured out how to use the washing machines. If you are experienced in this area, the machines are in great condition and you will do well. We would rent this unit again in a heartbeat. Regardless of what experiences you have had with Home Away type venues; you will rate this unit as one of your favorites. P.S. Don’t worry about a toaster because the cooker toasts bread without a fuss."

  • Wonderful stay in London

    "You won't find a better location in London. Very close to the tube, great restaurants and The Tower of London. It's very well appointed and located in a very safe neighborhood. We will be back soon."
