Cosy and modern London flat steps away from London Bridge!

I stayed in this apartment during the second week of December with two other adults and a child. The pictures on the HomeAway listing do not lie! This is a clean, modern, comfortable apartment in a relatively quiet, residential area of London. It is only a three minute walk to the Bermondsey (Jubilee Line) Station which connects to the busier areas of downtown London in a snap. There is a well-stocked grocery store just around the corner for those that wish to prepare meals at home. The rental contract, down-payment, and delivery and reimbursement of the deposit went very quickly and smoothly with the owner. I would stay in this apartment again. Thanks to Francesca and Co. for an excellent stay in London!
We stayed in this lovely apartment for 1 week in October with our baby. it was great, close to the tube, spacious apartment, and a nice area to stay in for a young family. we will def use this apartment again.
Vacationing in pricey London was a breeze with our cozy and modern flat! The Tube is conveniently located nearby, barely one block away, and our favorite pub, The Gregorian Arms was a delight for dinner. Our hosts were very helpful and responsive to all of our questions. Especially when working with European appliances. The apartment was clean and well furnished and modern, which we liked. Behind us was St. James and we were serenaded by the bells each morning, thankfully not too early, and our first evening we arrived, there was a bell chiming class going on! The convenience market was just behind our building and had everything we needed to make our stay easy and carefree. We did a lot of walking and found it easy to get around using the Tube. Would recommend getting the London Pass for exhibits and getting the Transit pass. Thanks again, Francesca for a wonderful stay! We will recommend to friends traveling to this magical city.
Der Kontakt mit dem Vermieter und die Schlüsselübergabe vor Ort verlief bestens. Das Apartment entsprach absolut den gezeigten Bildern und wir fühlten uns sehr wohl. Es war alles vorhanden und sauber. Die Anbindung an die Verkehrsmittel (Bus und U-Bahn) ist nah gelgen und doch war die Wohnung recht ruhig gelegen.
Wenn wir mal wieder nach London kommen sollten, wird Francesca unser erster Ansprechpartner sein.
We've had a lovely week in this appartment. Comfortable, clean and with all things needed available.
It's a nice neighborhood with a small supermarket around the corner. The tubestation (Jubilee line) is a 5 minute walk and takes you to the city centre in less then 10 minutes. If you want to some more shopping it's also very convenient tot take the tube the other to Canary Wharf two stops down the line.
Communication with the owner was good and quick.
We can recommend the appartment to everybody who wants a comfortable stay close to the centre of London.
We traveled with our children (10 and 14 years old), and we all just loved the place we stayed. We stayed for 8 days and found the flat very lovely, just like as it looks in the photos. It was well furnitured and equipped, clean, cosy, very warm, quiet. The location is so convenient for traveling - just minutes away from the Bermondsey Tube station (Jubilee Line) which leads you to the Central London; bus 188 station is nearby to go to the Greenwich Park. Due to the perfect location, we were able to manage short lunch/rest times at home and then go out “renewed” again even after long, long day in the Central London. High importance when traveling with children and whant to see something adult important as well. Everything during this journey – booking, instructions how to find the flat, welcome, stay itself and leaving - went smoothly and without any trouble or delay, so we could enjoy the London. Thank you very much indeed!
Nach längerer Suche haben wir uns für die Ferienwohnung von Francesca und Giulio entschieden und diese Entscheidung keine Sekunde bereut.
Vom ersten Kontakt an wurden alle Anfragen prompt, ausführlich und sehr freundlich beantwortet. In Empfang genommen wurden wir durch Sebastian und Matthew, die uns sehr herzlich begrüßten und alles ausführlich zeigten und erklärten. Die Kaution wurde gleich nach unserer Heimreise zurück überwiesen.
Die Wohnung war sehr sauber, sehr gut eingerichtet und ausgestattet. Sie entsprach genau den Bildern und der Beschreibung. Sie liegt in einer sehr ruhigen Seitenstraße, direkt gegenüber der Kirche St. James. Wenn man Glück hat, sieht man nachts sogar die Füchse über den Kirchhof stromern.
Die nächste U-Bahn-Station Bermondsey (Jubillee line) ist nur wenige Gehminuten entfernt und so erreicht man schnell alle Top-Attraktionen, Bahnhöfe und Anschlüsse zu den Flughäfen. Zur Themse/Tower Bridge gelangt man in wenigen Minuten zu Fuß, hier gibt es viele Lokale. Ein kleiner, 24-Stunden geöffneter Supermarkt ist direkt neben der U-Bahn-Station, wo man die wichtigsten Dinge für den täglichen Gebrauch bekommt. Größere Supermärkte sind etwas weiter weg, aber zu Fuß oder mit dem Bus gut zu erreichen.
Wir werden die Wohnung bei unserer nächsten London-Reise nach Möglichkeit wieder buchen und sie auch allen Freunden und Bekannten weiter empfehlen.
Having stayed at many different flats in London over the years, I can honestly say that this is the best, based on value for money, location, safety and service from the owners. The flat is so quiet, warm and cosy that my husband and I were really very happy there. It is just as it looks in the photos, with a pleasant aspect over the churchyard. Personally, I think the South Bank is the best place to be in London and Bermondsey is slowly becoming quite a hip area, with trendy Bermondsey Street nearby. When I was leaving, Sebastian, who manages the flat, arrived at exactly my requested time to refund me my security deposit and helped me downstairs with my suitcase. You won't find better service anywhere else!
Thank you Francesca, Giulio and Sebastian for a great stay. Francesca is a very responsive owner and booking the flat was easy and smooth. When we arrived we were greeted warmly by Sebastian at the flat. The flat was extremely clean, new and fully furnished.
We stayed for 10 days and found the location very convenient for traveling to central London. It takes just 20 minutes to Leicester square or Covent Garden. The flat has a nice view of St James, we loved hearing the church bells on the hour. In the evening we enjoyed walking on the South Bank of the Thames by the Tate Gallery, Globe theater and Tower Bridge for some amazing views of London and people watching. It is also close to restaurants and grocery stores.
Next time we are in London, we would be happy to stay in the Frean Street flat and I would recommend it to friends.
My husband and I stayed in this flat during the Olympics and everything ran smoothly from the first contact to Francesca to our final thank yous and goodbyes! Everything is laid out exactly as you see it and Francesca will answer any questions you may have (promptly) - and more!
We had originally wanted to stay in Central London - as we were told that is the place to be. However, after spending a few days site seeing there, it was so crowded and loud that it was much nicer to have a break from all the hustle and bustle. We were very glad we made the decision to stay here.
The location couldn't be any more perfect either. You are just minutes away from the Bermondsey Tube station, which runs on (what we think) the most efficient line of them all, the Jubilee Line. The flat is also a short 5 minute walk to the Thames, and Tower Bridge. There are wonderful restaurants to enjoy along the Thames or Shad Thames, and if you would rather eat in, there are some great grocery stores within a short walk as well. Even if you wanted to grab a quick snack on your way out of the tube station, there is a small 24 hour grocery store as you exit that has anything you would want.
The flat is very well equipped and the furnishings are comfortable too. I would not hesitate to stay here again in the future. Tell all your friends - because I sure will!
Io, mio marito e mia figlia abbiamo avuto il piacere di soggiornare per 3 settimane nell'appartamento e ci siamo sentiti come a casa nostra. La casa ha davvero tutto ciò che può servire (es. lavastoviglie, lavatrice, phon, ferro da stiro, teapot, macchina del caffè, 2 tv, Wi-fi utilissimo per noi, dvd, insomma tutto ciò che può servire c'è !!!) ed ha un ottima posizione perchè per arrivare alla fermata della metro a piedi, con la bambina, impiegavo 3 minuti passando attraverso il piacevole parco adiacente alla Chiesa e sul quale si affaccia l'appartamento.
La casa è nuova, molto accogliente, pulita e luminossisima ed ha la fortuna di avere tante vetrate e un bel balcone dal quale si gode una piacevole vista nel verde. Non pensavo che avrei avuto la fortuna di trovare a Londra una casa cosi'. Per la spesa "veloce" ci sono un paio di negozi proprio all'uscita della metro (per pane/latte/bibite e altre cose). Per la spesa più grande si può scendere dalla metro al Canary Wharf dove, senza nemmeno uscire fuori, si può entrare in un grande centro commerciale dove si trova di tutto; infine da casa, a piedi, si può percorrere St. James's Road per trovare negozi e supermercati. La fermata metro e sulla linea Jubilee line che, essendo la linea che porta anche all'Olympic Park, è più che perfetta e comodissima. Anche dall'aereoporto, se arrivate a Heathrow come noi, potrete prendere la Piccadilly line, cambiare a Green Park per la Jubilee line e arrivare a casa spendendo pochissimi pound !!! Londra poi è meravigliosa, abbiamo visto molto ma ci restano ancora molte cose da vedere e da fare. Torneremo senz'altro. Intanto un ringraziamento in particolare alle persone che ci hanno accolto e supportato e che si sono preoccupate di non farci mancare nulla: Sebastian e Francesca. Non vediamo l'ora di tornare !!! Emanuela
