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.
Our family of two adults and two kids (ages 3 and 6) stayed in Jane's unit for three nights. The unit is as depicted in the photos: clean and cozy. The location is fantastic, only a short walk to many restaurants, and attractions. Borough Market is just down the street as is the Tower Bridge, Tower of London, and bus, tube and ferry service.
We stayed at Janes last week and it was wonderful! The flat is tidy and clean! It has a beautiful view! The apartment is very bright! Jane really cares about her guests. She is always available for requests. Next time London, next time Janes apartment
Perfect host and great apartment. Well equipped kitchen. Stayed three nights with my family (2 adults and 2 children) and enjoyed especially associated balcony during this lovely weekend. My kids really appriciated the playground and football pitch in the neighbourhood.
Only few minutes walk from undergrund station.
Great place for a weekend getaway. Everything was well organised. Communication with Jane was pleasant and response always came within a few hours. The apartment is located 5 minutes away from London Bridge and many tourist attractions are within walking distance. The rooftop terrace and large windows make it a superior stay.
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.
This is the final rate, including any fees from the host and Airbnb.
