Hi, my husband and I were visiting my son and his new wife from Australia. Needed a base close to the city, transport, restaurants and Bankside 2 position was perfect ! David & Ida were perfect hosts. David was a wonderful help as we needed paperwork printed to hire a Zipcar and nothing was too hard. The flat was light and modern and being able to cook for ourselves, although we we spoilt for choice with cafes and restaurants and the fabulous Borough markets 1 minute away if we needed to made Bankside 2 was a great home away from home. The little treats left for us was a nice gesture too! Looking forward to our next visit and will definitely stay at Bankside. Cannot stop recommending to my friends.
This apartment is brilliantly located - a couple of minutes walk to Borough Market, a moment more to the Thames, a short stroll to The Globe and Tate Modern. For transport it's very near London Bridge tube which gives great access to just about anywhere, not to mention the burgeoning ferry services along the river. The apartment is neat and comfortable - just right for 1-2 people. Everything is well thought out, most importantly the cute kitchen to make the most of the fabulous food you'll get from the Market. David and Ida were very accommodating with arrival times and gave some great tips on the off-the-tourist-track things to do in the neighbourhood. I'll stay there on my next trip.
This is a superb studio apartment in a great area of London. I stayed here for 6 days, in the upstairs apartment of two owned by the couple who live next door. These guys really want you to enjoy staying here - the apartment is beautifully fitted out with all you could ask for - comfortable bed, very workable kitchen, well set out bathroom, plenty of storage space and three great skylights which fill the area with light and sunshine.
And all this is about 30 seconds walk from the culinary delights of Borough Markets. I was in "foodie heaven" as I foraged for the best english, unusual, artisan ingredients I could find and brought them back to cook. For those with less culinary enthusiasm, there are plenty of market stalls selling takeaway food or with sit down meals. The Neal's Yard store with diary and bread and Montague's amazing coffee were my highlights. It is a busy and safe area until late at night as there is plenty of activity in the restaurants and pubs encircling the markets.
About 30 seconds further away from the apartment was the London Bridge tube station and easy connections to all of London. Plus buses of that's more your thing.
I loved everything about my stay. The owners were friendly, discrete and motivated to make your stay great. I'll be back - this IS my new address in London. Why look elsewhere.
The apartment is close to the Borough Market, Tate Modern, London Bridge and many other attractions. London becomes walkable from Bankside! The apartment has been cleverly laid out with everything we needed easily accessible. It's fun being so close to the Market, though important to remember that it closes at 5:00. There's a nearby M&S--food is fine, but a lot less interesting! We stayed a little longer than we had planned because we enjoyed being there so much. David was helpful and friendly, a perfect host.
This apartment was more than we expected! Very well appointed, spotless and David, the owner was so helpful. The apt. is close to rail, bus and tube lines, the River Thames, marvelous Borough Market, fun pubs etc. Within walking distance of major attractions!
Located just around the corner from Borough Market and a short walk from all of London’s main attractions, this sleek, contemporary, first floor studio apartment has plenty of skylight windows that bring in much sunlight during the day and allow you to look up at the moon from your bed at night.
Newly built and furnished in 2016, a brilliant white and muted blue-grey colour scheme, healthy indoor plants, and copper coloured pendant lamps give the space a smart and spiffy feel.
The apartment has one very firm and comfortable king sized bed, a pull-out sofa bed, a small dining table, a kitchen with microwave, electrical hob, oven, dinnerware, utensils and cutlery, dishwasher and washing machine, television and a bright and spacious bathroom.
Great location, just two minutes walk from Borough Market. A stone’s throw away from the River Thames, Shakespeare’s Globe, London Bridge, Tower Bridge and the Tower of London, and a five-minute walk to London Bridge tube station.
