The flat, which is in a riverside development on Rotherhithe Street, consists of double bedroom, reception room, separate modern kitchen and bathroom with shower and bath. Please note that the bedroom and lounge are separate. We also use the lounge for sleeping if required. Here we have the option to put single mattresses. Please see the pictures. The bathroom and kitchen are tiled and the rest of the flat has oak flooring throughout. There is also a secure gated parking space. The apartment is fully furnished and has WI-FI.
In the local area you will find everything you need for your stay; there are supermarkets, bars, cafes, and restaurants. The apartment is just steps from the Thames, and just a short walk or bus ride to some of London's most famous sights including Tower Bridge, the Tower of London, and Greenwich.
The area has great transportation links. The flat is just a short walk from both Rotherhithe and Canada Water Tube Stations, which gives you access to both the overground and the Jubilee Line. If you are in London on business this flat is the ideal place for you to stay. The River Bus to Canary Wharf is close by, and takes just 3 minutes to cross the Thames!!

Overall it was ok with the basic necessitities for a short stay but wasn't great for us for a 10 days visit. No mention in description that it is on 3rd floor - getting suitcases up 48 stairs was no mean feat for 2 over 60s people!
Low cleanliness rating as we were only offered 2 towels, 2 sheet sets and one teatowel. Quite inadequate really. We know it isn't a hotel but 2 sets for 10 days would have been better. No hand towels and the oven mitt was dirty. The washing machine is disconnected. Of 3 storage heaters - but only the hall one works. No operating instructions provided. Portable electric heater provided for the lounge which worked well.
One toaster element was faulty. Small sink was blocked and not able to be used. After one use the water remained getting yuckier by the day. One of the kitchen cupboards was quite dirty. Fridge and freezer were fine.
Shower was ok except taps under shower head - hard to adjust water temp while standing under it.

The Appartmet had cleaned just as we arrived so we had to make a walk for an hour and come back again. Then everything was fine, Sidney was very friendly and helpful. WiFi worked. The connections via bus to Canada Water Tube Station was good.
