Blackfriars is an area of central London in the south-west corner of the city and adjacent to the Thames River. Known as the "Wall Street of London", many fortune 500 companies are located in this area, making it the perfect spot if you are looking for a furnished corporate rental apartment or even if you're just visiting London for leisure and want to be in the heart of the city.
Located between Ireland Yard and Carter Lane in the Blackfriars area, this 1 Bedroom/1 Bath furnished London apartment is located in an elevator building consisting of 12 apartments with a video security camera system at the entrance. Designed in a modern style to emphasize light and space, this sleek corporate-style apartment offers the luxury of modern fixtures and designer Italian furniture. Any modern apartment has to be fitted with the latest technology to keep up with this fast paced international city and major world business center. Your apartment is equipped with wireless broadband internet, and telephone with voicemail to keep up with business, but all work and no play does get boring so in your downtime you can enjoy 2 flat screen TVs with satellite channels (one in the bedroom and one in the living room), a DVD player and i-pod docking station. There is also a well-equipped gym in the vicinity. The units in this building have been cleverly designed with views over a tree-lined courtyard to provide peace in the middle of the big city of London. The living space emphasizes serenity from the living room with plush sofa to the zen-like ambiance of the glass and tiled en suite bathroom you'll spend far too much time in. Off the relaxing, light filled living room is the open kitchenette area equipped with a microwave, dishwasher, coffee maker and toaster. The perfect set up to prepare a home cooked meal and sit down at your dining table for four (invite friends!).
After dinner you can saunter over to your retreat from the city (aka your bedroom), collapse into the cozy bed and watch your favorite show or movie on your flat screen TV. The en suite bathroom is just off the bedroom through a sliding glass door. The open airy feeling carries throughout the space with a glass enclosed tiled shower or, if you want to melt away the day, there's a deep soaking tub to submerge yourself in.
If all that lazing around makes you guilty you could always do some laundry; its not that much work after all when you have your own washer/dryer located right in the apartment. (But if housework isn't your thing there's always the weekly housekeeping offered at these serviced apartments to fall
There is never a lack of things to do around this central area of London, you'll have your pick of pubs, restaurants and shopping all within easy reach. On the weekends when the stockbrokers have stopped rushing around there is still plenty of action in the area. You can take in the Tate Modern and soak up some art, watch the Ceremony of the Keys, a 700 year old tradition that takes place every night at the Tower of London or attend an open air performance at Shakespeare's Globe Theater just as audiences did in Shakespeare's day.
The Blackfriars underground station served by the District and Circle lines is a short stroll (.1 mile or 160 meters) from your abode. Of course there is also a network of day and night bus routes that encircle the area as well. Car parking facilities can be found nearby as well.
"Suite all the way"5 of 5 stars Reviewed yesterday NEW via mobileAnd my best friend stayed here for Mardi Gras even though today is parade we wanted to go to all different events beforehand. Because the hotel is only five floors I find it more cosy and exclusive and it was reflected in our check in with a complimentary box of chocolates which we both devoured on arrival into our room...
