On a quiet street around the corner and down a street from Borough Market -- so great shopping and eating nearby. A short walk to the Thames path and easy walk along the Thames to the National Theater (about 15-20 minutes). A couple of blocks from the London Bridge tube station. David, the host, is extremely nice and helpful. The flat was remodeled a few years ago, so all appliances and fixtures are new. A few doors down is an excellent Indian restaurant, Mango. Best for a couple. It would be a tight squeeze for a third person. We would return without a doubt.
The apartment was steps from the Borough Market and also not far, yet just far enough, from many of the main spots like The Sky Garden and The London and Tower bridges.
The landlord was a very pleasant fellow who was quick with replies to the couple of texts we sent while there.
If you get a chance, try Tapas Brindisa restaurant; the three of us thought it was just as good or better than tapas we had in Spain. Also, Honest Burger which is a short walk was very good.
All in all, we were very happy with our stay in this apartment and would definitely stay there again.
My 9-year old son and I stayed at the flat for one week at the end of April/start of May. The apartment was very clean and comfortable - we were very pleased with it. The location is great - the Thames is just a few blocks away and the Tube is about 2 blocks. The hosts were in touch beforehand and during the trip to be sure we had a nice stay. We locked ourselves out once, and they were very accommodating and able to let us in when we returned in the evening. We also found ourselves unexpectedly in need of a babysitter for one evening, and they were very helpful in locating a sitter! I can't say enough good things about them. They went over and above in taking care of us, and we very much appreciated it.
This flat suited our family of 3 perfectly. The kitchen was well equipped, the beds were comfy, it was extremely well kept, clean and quiet. It is literally steps from Borough Market and you can see the Shard out the front door. It's about 2 blocks from the tube (London Bridge station) and close to pubs, restaurants, Globe Theatre, Tate Museum, etc. Try the Fish Kitchen at Borough Market, so yummy! David and Ida were the perfect hosts and David was kind enough to show us how the electric cooker, microwave and washing machine worked. The only downside is that we didn't want to leave this perfect little flat to come home. We would definitely book this flat again.
Can't thank David and Ida enough for this gem of a unit. Very clear instructions, very close to London Bridge station for all connections, very close to the Borough Markets for picking up anything (especiallly cheese) . Everything exactly as per the pictures, just a fantastic place to base yourself as we did for one week. 110% clean, 100% functional facilities and hosts that really care.
Stop looking elsewhere and just book this one immediately.
Great Place near Borough Market and London Bridge station. My family enjoyed it very much. David was a great host too!
