This bright and stylish one double bedroom flat is situated on the 5th floor of the Empire Square contemporary development that was built in 2007. The apartment is laid out with a combined sitting room and kitchen, from which the bedroom is separated by a pleasant hallway, which provides a good amount of separation and privacy in someone is using the sofa bed. There are amazing floor-to-ceiling windows in the bedroom and living room/kitchen that really open up the space and provide a good amount of light. The windows lead out to two south facing balconies with an aspect onto Tabard Gardens. As mentioned, there's a comfortable sofa bed in the living room that can accomodate 2 more people.
There's a full kitchen with all the usual modcons for you to use at your leisure. The apartment also comes with full TV (with SkyTV) and free wifi. There's also a washer and dryer for your use.
Empire Square is located only 3 mins walk from Borough Tube Station and London Bridge (Tube and National Rail) is a further 5 mins walk.
Despite its central location the apartment is very quiet. The place is in a great area, being just a few steps away from The Shard and Borough Market. It's also incredibly safe and there's great tube access.
There is 24 hr concierge & security, a Soho Gym and a local supermarket within the development.
If you are arriving at the flat after 2200 and before 0630 the inner square will be closed. The entrances are still in use but can be easily accessed from the outside of the square.
I usually stay In the apartment Monday evening to Thursday morning which makes it homely but clutter free (I leave that in my home in Oxford!) It is therefore available every week from Thursday night to Monday morning, but please enquire if you need a day or two on either side as I'm very flexible and will try and accomodate you.
Jane is an excellent host. The flat is beautiful and really comfortable. I really would like to come back.
We had a wonderful weekend in London which was enhanced by our stay in No 133. Jane provided us with a very detailed description of the apartment and directions for getting there. It all went very smoothly.
The apartment was very clean and tidy. The beds were comfortable.
The position of the apartment was very central within walking distance of a number of underground stations.
We would definitely recommend this apartment and will be using it again.
First time users of Airbnb and what a wonderful start, accommodation was perfect. Clean, bright and well situated, close to the underground and 10 min walk to the Embankment. Jane left us all the instructions we needed and a very informative pack to help us have a great weekend. I have no negative points, access at all times was easy and parking outside after 6.30pm on Friday was free all weekend, will definitely use again, a big thank you to Jane.
La résidence est recente et située dans un quartier assez proche de London bridge ( 10 mns a pied au sud de la tamise ) et du quartier/marche Borough avec station de metro à proximité . L'appartement est impeccable et lumineux . Sans être au centre de Londres vous en êtes très proches avec des commerçants et restaurants à proximité: très bon camp de base !
Jane was nice and gave us a lot of information and always answered our questions within a few hours.
Great apartment, the location is perfect to visit London and it made us discover Borough Market whish is great!
The flat was new, tidy, clean and functional.
The bed is very confortable, unfortunately the sofa bed is not. I would have put 5 stars otherwise.
We (3 girls) stayed at Jane's flat for the weekend. The flat is awesome and well located.
Jane has sent us all informations and good instructions beforehand.
Me and my 3 friends stayed at janes flat to celebrate the New Year in London. The communication between her and us worked well. She also prepared our stay carefully. Getting the key didn't make any problems. At her very tidy appartment she left a lot of information about the flat and london souch as city maps for us.
All in all we felt very comfortable and Jane is a very good host.
Jane's flat is really nice: clean and modern and good location (close to Borough market and to tube stations).
Really enjoyed the balconies and the view.
Thank you Jane.
Wonderful place to stay; lovely apartment, very clean and cozy, with open view on the city. Ideal location. Walking distance (10-15 minutes) to lots of great attractions. All exactly as shown in photographs.
Very easy communication with host who consistently promptly responded to all our requests. Instructions to get to apartment were clear and easy to follow. We highly recommend.
Very nice flat.
Jane sent very good directions, so it was easy to find.
All in all a very good experience :)
