Description
2 Bedroom Vacation Rental in Southwark (LN-528)

This London vacation rental is a two bedroom apartment in Southwark on Upper Ground off Blackfriars Road overlooking the Thames. The apartment is on the 3rd floor of a modern apartment block on the south side of the river Thames next to Blackfriars bridge and the accommodation has a part-time doorman and elevator in the building. Note that there is construction next to the building and some noise can be heard from 8am to 4pm.

This two bedroom apartment has a large living room with a good size balcony looking directly onto the river Thames with great views across the river towards St Paul's Cathedral. The living room has Sky satellite TV as well as regular freeview cable and WIFI internet connection. At the other end of the living room is the dining table with seating for four. The kitchen is separate but adjacent to the living room and is equipped with electric oven and electric hob. You will find flexible sleeping accommodations in this apartment: The master bedroom has a king size bed and built-in wardrobes while the second bedroom has two single beds that can be pushed together to form a king size bed. There is a family bathroom modernised in 2012 with bath, wall-mounted shower, and WC. In addition there is a separate washroom with WC (a half-bathroom).

This vacation rental apartment is a great place to stay just over Blackfriars bridge and between two underground stations, Southwark (Jubilee line) and Blackfriars (Circle and District lines). Southwark is a popular location experiencing something of a renaissance. It is a very convenient location for public transport with Waterloo national railway station just half a mile from the apartment. Waterloo is one of London's busiest railway stations with links to the south and west. Blackfriars Road is also very close to the Tate Modern museum or for walks along the river towards the HMS Belfast, now a museum on the river Thames in the direction of Bermondsey.

  • Review by: Monica A.
    From:Spain
    Accommodation Rental: 6 days

    There were some very dusty areas in the apartment and I had to clean the microwave because it was dirty and the sink was in bad conditions.

    The apartment is not bad overall, but windows have to be changed, as well as the double bed. Positive things: the apartment is very nice, very well located, the bathrooms have been renovated and the bedrooms are ok, although the closets would need to be changed (I really liked the bed lines and the towels, really white and fresh).

    The concierge was very kind and the staff helped us in everything we needed.

    Overall, we had a good experience. We will come back to this apartment.

      Hi there Monica this is the first complaint that i have had about cleanliness and I will address this with the housekeeper. I am presently in London to upgrade the kitchen and the sink will be replaced as well as all the appliances.Unfortunately there is quite a bit of building activity so there is dust.Yes the location is exceptional.

    Accommodation Rental: 6 days

    It was our 7th trip to London and undoubtedly the best. We immediately felt at ease in this apartment in which we stayed during 7 days for Christmas.
    It is ideally located to visit London, on foot, on the bus and with the underground, transportation is literally at your doorstep. Supermarket is 100 meters away. The view of the Thames and the opposite riverside is beautiful, sunsets and sunrises are wonderful (the weather was indeed splendid, no raindrop).
    The apartment is very well equipped (the espresso coffee machine should be fixed though), we were able to cook our turkey and Christmas dinner. It was very comfortable. Our big teenagers had a good rest and rather stayed inside in the warm instead of coming with us to walk a long time along the Thames, but they really enjoyed the vicinity with museums and parks.

    Bedding is also perfect and the provided linen is really appropriate.

    Communication with the landlady was also very easy and pleasant. She enabled us to get in earlier in the apartment and to get in touch with the housekeeper (also very nice) in order to leave our luggage and to fully enjoy our last day. We thank her and send her our best wishes for 2017.

    In short, a great and revitalizing stay which enabled us to end 2016 on a high note. This experience is to be renewed and shared.

    The apartment was fantastic! The location was the best to see most things in London by just walking.the views were wonderful, especially in the evening when the city and the bridges were lit up. We could not have asked for a better vacation spot. The apartment owner was very helpful when we needed any questions answered.

    This apartment is ideally located. The surface area and the view are excellent. Household linen is impeccable. Beds are comfortable and all the appliances and crockery are provided... Things to be improved: kitchen needs to be cleaner (more thorough cleaning in the drawers). But generally speaking, it is the perfect rental. We already spent 2 weeks in this apartment during summer 2 years ago and we rented it again this time without a doubt. If we have to stay in London again, I will definitely rent this apartment.

      Hi Carmen I am glad you enjoyed your stay. I was there in December and I must say that I left the apartment in immaculate condition. I will forward this email to the housekeeper and ask her to pay special attention to the kitchen drawers.
      Hope to see you again in the near future

    I worked with Charles. He was GREAT. We selected an apartment. He suggested the one we rented. It was cheaper and MUCH better than the one we selected. It had a great view of the Thames, was a block from Blackfriars bridge, the tube, Sainsbury, etc. It was GREAT.

    Our stay was very pleasant. Janis was really kind and helped us with what we needed in a prompt way.

    From:United States
    Accommodation Rental: 8 days

    I stayed in the apartment from July 19 to 27, 2015. It was a vacation for my mother, adult daughter and myself. It was our first time to London and I was concerned that my Mom (age 76) have a pleasant place to spend time when we were not out and about as I anticipated that she would get tired at times. This apartment was the perfect fit for us. In fact, the comfort and the view was so pleasant that we spent more time in the apartment than we ever would have any hotel room, no matter how luxurious.

    The location is absolutely perfect for touring London. You can get from Heathrow with just one tube exchange (use Green Park with the available lifts if you are bringing luggage or otherwise need to avoid the stairs). Finding it was a breeze, even for people completely unfamiliar with London. The balcony was just magnificent. The Thames is a coin toss away and the Blackfriars bridge is beautiful, night and day. And St. Paul's is in the background. We would have paid a pretty price to have drinks on that balcony just one evening, and we had it every night!The Borough market (now open for full market on Wed as well as Thurs to Sat) is a short walk or a close bus ride. The National Theatre and the Tate Museum are very easy walks either up or down the Queens Walk by the Thames, accessed just behind the building. The Blackfriars tube station is just over the bridge -- and here's a tip, if it's raining, you can use an Oyster card to go through the Blackfriars Train station and walk along the platform to the north side of the river and as long as you immediately get on the tube to somewhere, your passage from Blackfriars' train to tube station is free. Works the same the other direction too, if you pass through immediately after getting off the tube. Just swipe the card at both ends.

    Having access to a kitchen was also a wonderful boon. There are numerous grocery stores pretty close and a pharmacy literally across the street. The kitchen was well fixed for cooking and serving pieces -- plenty of skillets and sauce pans in all sizes, a colander to drain pasta, oven, cooktop(hob), French press for coffee, an electric kettle, an espresso maker (we didn't use this one), toaster and microwave oven. We saved alot by making our own meals instead of eating out every one. It was really wonderful to have such a nice place to fix our own cocktails and snacks each evening. There are some spices in the cabinet. The only item I brought along from home was a steamer insert that fit the largest sauce pan for steaming veggies and I was glad to have brought a vegetable peeler as there was not one there. The only thing missing for us Americans was more ice trays.

    Having two full bedrooms and a bath and half was wonderful for use three ladies. The beds are very comfortable and there were plenty of extra towels and linens available. The rooms have airconditioning, which we used during warm days. The bedrooms are quite roomy with plenty of storage for hanging clothes.

    The dining room is ample size for four and could sit 6 in a pinch. The furniture is very nice, very comfortable and the decor is pleasing. We could not have been happier to have stayed. We felt that we got a tremendous value for our money.

    We did not miss having no hotel personnel to assist us because we did alot of research in advance and the wifi worked great in the apartment, so we had the benefit of all that online assistance. The lifts in the building worked fine the entire time we were there. The only issue we had was intermittent hot water being too hot and inconsistent. We never found out what that was about. It made for some interesting showers for us, but it was a tiny issue given how much we enjoyed the rest of our stay.

    On a last note, Ms. Ross, the owner was spectacularly responsive each and every time we reached out to her. She was immensely helpful and patient with our questions. We had some trouble at our bank getting the money transfer done from the US and she was super patient and very quick to respond to messages.

    We feel very lucky to have found this wonderful rental for our stay and would absolutely not want to go anywhere else when we go back. And, we will tell all our friends too!

    The location of the property was perfect. Very close to the train and tube station. The view was amazing as the property is right on the river with a great view of St. Paul's Cathedral. It is fairly close to many of the touristy attractions. My husband and I walked to many of them. We really enjoyed this staying here and would absolutely stay here again. Just don't count on the concierge for anything. They are worthless.

      Hi Stefanie I look forward to having you back again. Rivercourt is a residential block so the so called concierge desk is really a porters

    Accommodation Rental: 7 days

    Fantastic view was the highlight of our trip, the flat overall was extremely nice. So nice, sometimes we had to force ourselves out the door to see the rest of London. The pedestrian walkway (can't recall name) along the river in both directions was an unexpected treat. We appreciated all the pots and pans and dishes and we cooked in often. Minor complaint about air conditioner not working well in twin bed room. I have informed owner already and I'm sure she will take care of it because she obviously does maintain the flat to high standards. The construction in the area was a minor nuisance and the building itself is not very attractive from outside (hence 4 stars in that category), but once inside the flat, it was paradise. The concierge at Rennie Court was very helpful.

    • Answer by:

      Julie you were a pleasure. Sorry about the airconditioner but I go twice ayear to the apartment but I have never even turned on the ac unit as it has never been warm enough. Sorry about the noise from the construction but it should be complete by the end of the year.

      Hope to see you again in London Julie.

    The address for this property was a little confusing so that even our professional driver from the airport had trouble finding it. A quick call to the owner soon had us to the door and very pleased with our stay. We had some native Londoners visit us at the apartment and they were blown away by the value compared to a hotel stay. Location is the best attribute of this property.

    This is the third time that we have stayed in this apartment. We have thoroughly enjoyed every one. On other visits we have spent time on the balcony watching the tides and the river traffic. This time we also used the apartment as a base for day trips and it is convenient for the rail stations we needed. All the appliances work and we find the décor comfortable.

    We were delighted with this apartment, its comfort, the wonderful view of the Thames and St Paul, its excellent location to visit London city center, its full equipment.

    To be improved: when we arrived, it took us a long time to find out where to get the key although we'd given our time of arrival...

    The description mentioned 2 bathrooms. Actually, it is one bathroom and 2 WC.

    • Answer by:

      Hi Henri thank you for the lovely picture of you in my apartment. I am sorry that you had difficulty in getting the key. There is construction going on in the area at the moment which makes it difficult to find if there are trucks lining up to offload. Regarding the bathrooms, there is one bathroom with large shower basin and toilet and a second toilet with basin.

      Hope to see again soon.

We have added to the description that the washroom with WC is a "half-bathroom" since this term is more familiar to some guests. Thanks for helping us make it clearer for future guests!

    This apartment is spectacular. Right now, there's construction in the area, so a little noise during work hours. The location is perfect for exploring the city. Many major sights are within walking distance.

    Easy access to the Blackfriar tube station makes travel easy. Plenty of room for 2 adults & 2 teenagers. The view couldn't be more perfect. I would definitely recommend this to anyone going to London.

      It was a pleasure dealing with Betina and I am so pleased that she and her family had a good time at Rivercourt.

      It was one of the hottest weeks of the year in Britain so I would think that the windows were all open as the apartment has double glazing so it should block out most of the construction noise.

      Hopefully the buildings will be complete in the New Year.

    Location is great - convenient to many attractions, restaurants, transportation. The place has a great view of the Thames and St Paul's cathedral. Bathroom and kitchen have been updated, furniture has some wear but comfortable.

    Lots of construction in the area going on, but we were out and about during the day and didn't hear too much noise. We did sleep with the windows open (it was hot in London last week) and heard some road noise.

      I am aware that one of the Italian leather couches has some wear, and I will hopefully replace it in November when I get a chance to get there. I will also ask Hylton for a full report when he goes there in
      August.

      All the other furniture is in good shape, dining room chairs, seatpads were recovered not so long ago , bedheads also reupholstered..

      The noise from the building was minimal when I was there in February and is very well controlled. They only build from about 8:00 until 6:00 daily and Saturday mornings they only do deliveries etc.

      The buildings are due to be completed in 2014.

    This beautiful, comfortable and well-equipped vacation rental is particularly well located on the Thames bank and in the heart of Southwark. The hostess emailed us the day we arrived and was available (by email) if needed.

    She was helpful even before our arrival to let us know about the various routes from the airport and the person we should contact in the event of a problem.

    We had a very nice stay at this vacation rental and we highly recommend it and even hope to go back there when we next visit London.

    The vacation rental is very comfortable: light and spacious, and with large windows looking straight onto River Thames. The views are unique. It is also quite big and comfortable, ideal for four people. It is fully equipped in every aspect. You can't hear any noise at all, whether from the neighbors or from outside.

    The location is wonderful for exploring the city, right in the center (Blackfriars Bridge - between Westminster Bridge and London Tower). From the window, across the river, you can see St Paul's Cathedral's dome as if it was in the living the room.

    The service from NYHabitat team was excellent from all points of view. Also, Janis, the hostess, was very nice and cordial, and was attentive to every detail at all times.

    We absolutely highly recommend it so we hope to return.

      Good morning Jeanne-France from a sunny Cape Town, I was very pleased to hear that you enjoyed your stay at Rivercourt and that importantly you received a warm welcome.I actually live in Cape Town and was last at Rivercourt in February 2012 when I upgraded and checked the equipment in general.

      I was sorry to hear that the hoover and that some of the kitchenware was disappointing but then I do not have any control over what was there in February and what was still there in December.

      I have recently returned from London and have upgraded the kitchen , steamcleaned the carpets and made sure that the hoover is in good working condition.

      I hope we will once again see you at Rivercourt to enjoy its wonderfull skyline.

    My Family and stayed in this wonderful apartment while visiting our daughter who was studying in London. The location is very excellent and the view wonderful as it is right on the Jubilee Walk and close to Southwark tube.

    The only downside that we experienced is that the closest grocery store is a bit of a walk either across Blackfriars Bridge or down by the tube.

    This rental unit's location was extraordinary. The unit's layout is perfect for two couples or a family of four. Nice that the bedrooms are situated at one end and the living/eating area are situated with a view of the Thames and London skyline.

    The unit was a little tired looking and in need of updating, but was more than adequate. I would highly recommend this unit to others and will.

    We loved the huge size and the location and it's accompanying view of the River Thames. We ate on the balcony as much as possible. There was more than we needed in equipment and facilities, even some basic food stuff (salt sugar and the like ).

    The staff at the counter and John who looked after the apartment for the owner were great. He was easily contactable by phone and answered.

    We would stay again and believe it was good value.

    We could not imagine a finer place to stay. This beautiful apartment has our highest recommendation. We had our two teenage children with us and there was plenty of room for everyone. The view of the river was a treat. Plenty of blankets, towels and cooking utensils.

    Apartment had easy access and was quiet. The location worked very well, convenient to the subway and bus services.

    Everything was perfect and we will stay there again next time we go to London. Two thumbs up!

    We chose this apartment because of the view and the value, and we were not disappointed in either case. It was a pleasure to relax in this comfortable apartment and enjoy the view across the thames and blackfriars bridge, including having breakfast on the patio every morning.

    The kitchen was well outfitted, and the furnishings, linens, etc. were all top notch. We did have some trouble figuring out how to get our clothes out of the washer/dryer combo, but the ready availability of the manuals soon solved that. The location is a bit on the edge of the action, and the closest tube--southwark--isn't on the most convenient line (jubilee), but when blackfriars tube is finished being remodeled later in the year, the tube will be even more convenient .....

    All in all, we loved the place and will be recommending it.

    We loved the apartment and its location. The view from the balcony over the river is fantastic. The decor is one that made us feel very comfortable. The TV in the living room is nicer than the one in the pictures of the apartment, but neither bedroom had a TV. We didn't miss them. The internet connection never dropped us out. We found no coffee maker, but the electric kettle boiled our water quickly.

    The hand shower in the bathroom had good water pressure and plenty of hot water, but there was nowhere to hang it up. Phone numbers for a local contact were in the apartment but we never had a problem or an issue that we needed to call about.

    We just had a really great time and would love to stay there again.

    very pleasant vacation rental with access to subway stations (despite Blackfriars station shut down in 2011 due to works), good visits and grocery stores. Beautiful view, right at the foot of the Thames. Caretaker and cleaning staff helpful; information booklet for tourists...

    nothing to complain about... to do again as London has many wonders yet to be discovered!

      The only feedback I had was from John the caretaker who phoned me in Cape Town to advise that the sguest toile was leaking and requested a plumber. There is a in house plumber so the problem was fixed in a couple of hours.

      He advised that apart from that Valerie was enjoying her stay.

    I thought the apartment was lovely. Great location. Incredible view.

    The instructions on where to pick up the key could have been a little more precise. We spend 2-3 minutes wandering around looking for the "porters desk" across the street. Maybe send a PDF with a map?

    The apartment's Internet connection was nonfunctional, despite our extended efforts to resolve the problem (including calling tech support). It would be quite useful to fix that.

    All in all, the apartment met our expectations, and we were pleased.
