We stayed at 21 E Battery for two nights in January. The apartment was spacious, beautiful and quiet. The bed was very comfortable, and we enjoyed two nights of restful sleep. The location was almost ideal, about three blocks south of Broad, a ten second walk to Charleston Harbor, in a neighborhood of beautiful old mansions. The main house (we were actually staying in the old kitchen and slave quarters) is a well preserved mansion that offers tours. We went for free courtesy of Julie, our innkeeper, and enjoyed the tour greatly.
The only imperfect aspect was the plumbing. There was no hot water, only tepid to cold, and we had a fast and frigid bath at night. It was cold outside, so we had hoped for a warm bath. The toilet flushed with a prolonged sigh, only if you held the handle down for the duration, and very little oomph, which was a little disconcerting, but functional. A small price to pay for a beautiful location.
