This flat is such a hidden gem. It is so clean and well stocked and has beautiful modern decor. The bed is very comfortable and having a washer/dryer was a plus. The view is amazing and it’s such a quiet location. There is a waitrose grocery store across the street which was so convenient. From the patio you can smell the amazing fresh scent of jasmine that is growing nearby. It’s an easy walk to lots of great restaurants and the tower hill underground station. This is definitely where I would stay in the future!
Been to London before and wanted a location away from Westminster so we could walk/tube to places in the City and elsewhere. Saint Katharine’s Docks fit that bill perfectly It’s a 10-15 minute walk to the Tower HIll tube station and, when you walk/tour all day like we did, the easy 5 minute walk to SK Docks’ many restaurants worked great when we didn’t want to venture far for dinner. It’s also easy and relatively inexpensive to Uber to/from when you don’t want to walk. The apartment itself was on the third floor, but there is a modern lift. The flat complex itself is a little dated (70’s/80’s), but the flat has been renovated and has all the modern conveniences. Bed was comfortable. Nice view also over the docks to the Shard and there is a tiny balcony with two chairs that we didn’t use because we hit a cold, rainy week for our stay. The other best thing about the location is that there’s a well-stocked Waitrose grocery less than a minute walk away, and the same complex has a decent coffee bar and breakfast spot. David communicates check-in instructions well. The only constructive criticisms I have are twofold: (1) have some better instructions in the flat for washer, etc. (2) get at least one good reading lamp for the sitting area.
Quiet, comfortable, centrally located flat with a beautiful view of St Katherine's marina. Exceptionally clean with all the amenities as described. The bed is very comfortable (although closer to a queen-size by American standards). The bathroom is fabulous with a large walk-in shower with a rain shower head that is activated by a push of a button. The flat is located within an easy walk (approx 1/4 mile) walk from both the Tower of London and the Tower Hill tube stop. A tip for the next traveler: using our I-phone maps feature we originally found the flat via the streets from the Tower Hill tube stop. However, we discovered that one could access both the Tower Bridge and the Tower of London by walking through the St Katherine Dock area. This will lead you to a lovely pedestrian only route along the Thames river. We additionally discovered the large well-lit underground pedestrian walkway to the Tower Hill tube -avoiding the need to cross some very busy streets!. David provided very thorough directions (to include pictures!) of how to gain entrance to the flat. The Waitross is truly just a few steps across from the apartment building-a real boon to the food pocketbook after eating the majority of our meals out over the past 3 weeks. My wife and I stayed for 4 nights at the end of a 3-week stay in Wales and the UK prior to our departure back to the States. It was a pleasure to come back each day to this quiet retreat from the hustle & bustle of London. Loved the ability to log into Netflix and binge-watch our shows in the evening
Definitely recommend and will book again when we next return to London!
We had a lovely stay in this apartment at St Katherines's Dock. The owner was responsive and the instructions for the location and entry were clear. The space was bright and clean.
The apartment is very comfortable and well appointed, the bedroom is sufficiently large with closet space and drawers. The bed was large and quite comfortable. The kitchen is well stocked with cooking and baking equipment, newer built in stove and microwave, and open to the living area which has a comfortable couch and satellite TV - which along with the terrace provide nice areas to unwind. There is a view of the boats in the marina as well as in the distance the Tower bridge and Shard. There is a washer/dryer in the apartment should you need it. There was a wonderful rain shower and shampoo and soap provided in the bathroom.
The location is really ideal. The marina is just beautiful with many restaurants close by. There is a large well stocked Waitrose just in front of the building. It is a 10 min walk to the tube and we looked forward to the relaxing walk through the marina every night. There is a ferry dock about the same distance to go to Westminster or in the opposite direction to Greenwich.
There is the usual amount of outside noise one would expect in any city apartment location, but the walls between the apartments seem well soundproofed as we never heard any inside noise.
Looking forward to returning and would highly recommend.
Great location, right on St Katherine's Dock. The flat is immaculate inside, and all that you could need to make the stay comfortable is provided - I especially welcomed generous provision of welcome essentials, dishwasher and laundry detergents. Will always try to stay here again for future visits to the area.
The flat is comfortable and well appointed with a lovely view of Tower Bridge and The Shard. Conveniently located across from supermarket. Short walk to Tube station. Lots of restaurants nearby. Just wish we had been able to stay longer!
We stayed in David's apartment for 5 nights and everything was perfect: from the email communication to the arrival at the flat, through a self check-in easy but safe. The apartment is located in a wonderful position, every morning the view that gives you is something magical. We found the flat perfectly clean and it was even better than we expected, it was like being at home. We had a wonderful stay thanks to David and his accomodation. If I had to go back to London, I would definitely choose this apartament again. Arianna
