Archer House is a real find. We have stayed here twice and really enjoyed our visIts. Location is everything and with easy transport it's a winner. The bus runs outside the property and takes you to Victoria which is an excellent hub for further transport. It's an easy walk across one of the Thames bridges to Chelsea with great shopping and restaurants. Battersea Park is a 10min flat walk along the Thames Path - well worth visiting.
Inside it's a real home from home: warm, light and airy, spotlessly clean, some carpet some wood floors, a spacious bedroom (comfy bed) with lots of storage cupboards, a well-furnished large sitting/eating room (with speedy wifi) and a kitchen with all utensils you need. Sometimes it is nice to cook and eat in and its really easy here. Having said that the small local Battersea Sq is a five min walk with at least 5 neighbourhood restaurants. Plenty of hot water and the power shower is great. Should also mention the view which is lovely at night.
We brought our car and there is a safe parking space in the complex which is really useful in London but once we got there we didn't need to use it again til we left.
The owner Annabel sounds delightful and is really helpful. She has written a masterpiece of a handy book with workings of the flat and other tips.
All in all highly recommended for a visit to London.

“My retreat in London”
Reviewed October 8, 2014 for a stay in September 2014

Top line: a decent elegant spacious apartment not far from the heart of london

One very quickly feels at home after entering this elegant apartment, maybe due to its simple elegance, its easily appreciable functionality, its bright atmosphere.

The apartment is beautifully designed, furnished, and well cared for. The owner graciousness for her guests is evident in each and every detail. This was one of my best experiences in vacation rentals anywhere.

The apartment is in the top floor in a compound, with several garden courtyards in between its sections. The door to the apartment is on the third floor to which you come up either with an elevator or stairs. On entry to the apartment, you will find indoor stairs, which will take you one flight to the apartment area. A step in giving the feeling of sanctuary/ retreat to the place. You then come to a short wide corridor leading to all parts of the apartment, a spacious living-dining room, a comfortable bedroom, a wide well equipped kitchen, a wide bathroom. Wonderfully enough, all extremely well lit, with large windows, either into the street and the River Thames side view (both rooms)' or the inner garden courtyard (kitchen and bathroom).

The living room has a sofa bed and dining table. Luxuries of audio and video with an I-phone-pad docking unit, a large flatscreen tv, with satellite channels, DVD player. Several good quality games. A folder with detailed explanations of the apartment, its surroundings, and its amenities.

Bedroom is wide enough with comfortable bed, large wardrobe cupboard, a nice chair by the window. Kitchen is nothing short of fully prepared. Bathroom had an only issue of weak tap water flow but a powerful Shower operated by a pull-rope.

Other fine details in the apartment abound for the comfort of its visitor, and underlines the graciousness of its owners.

This is one excellent option for a stay in London for the choosy and picky, and when I go to London next time, I hope it will be vacant to stay there again.
