About Karen Rees

We have owned the apartment since new in 2002, and have seen the area develop and change for the better. We live in the UK, but enjoy travelling. Our family and friends, and now our adult children have loved getting to know the area and taking advantage of all London offers.

Karen Rees purchased this apartment in 2002

Why Karen Rees chose London

The apartment was very conveniently situated near London Bridge main line station and offered good communication with most parts of London. We were excited by all the plans in place to improve and develop the area, which we have seen change considerably in the last 10 years from warehousing to modern glass and steel with a fantastic water front area. We have really enjoyed being close to the River and Thames Path, and close to historic landmarks such as the Tower of London, St Katherines Dock and HMS Belfast.

What makes this apartment unique

It has a huge range of places to visit close by. It has always been convenient for the west end, and Southbank but now it has good links to the Stratford and all that offers, as we found when enjoying the Olympics.

As well as popular and well known places there are few hidden treasures in Bermondsey and locally, such as the Shortwave cinema and our local Pub. The London marathon is a great weekend as the route goes past the window.

Good value, good location

  • 4 of 5

The three of us liked the apartment and would stay there again but it might not work for everyone. The location was good as it was only a 5 minute walk from the Tower Bridge, which I never tire walking by, but it was in a non touristy area. The bar beside the apartment and the one two blocks down the ally both had great food and were frequented almost entirely by locals. The 2 underground stations are a bit of a walk (15-20 minutes) but the local buses are usually very convenient. During our stay the Tower Bridge closed to vehicles for a long term repair and the bus routes changed making them far less convenient for the apartment.

The apartment itself was large, well stocked, and in a nice building. It was a bit worn in places (dirty carpets,etc.) and could use an update. The living room furniture (one chair and a small couch) was not great for more than 2 people. The apartment was generally quite clean but my wife and her sister had a few concerns about the cleaning that had been done prior to our arrival (for example, the recycling was full). We had no problems with the noise but many would as there is a busy road outside and with the new bus schedule many of them stop outside almost all day long (ironically, as I said the new routing is less convenient)

As I mentioned earlier, I generally liked the apartment and would probably try rent it again. It was a good value and in a good location but there are some issues that would make it ill suited for some.

Great location, nice apartment

  • 4 of 5

My brother and I stayed here for 4 days in mid-Sept. The apartment is in a great location for sightseeing as well as using public transportation.The place is spacious, well equipped, and has all the comforts of home. There are a number of books about travel and extras like that in the apartment. Like some other reviews, the apartment is on a main street, so there is a bit of road noise. However, if you can sleep with ear plugs, then the problem is solved. Also, there is no A/C so it did stay a bit warm at night. Otherwise, it was a really pleasant and comfortable stay.

Lovely spacious apartment in a great location.

  • 5 of 5

This apartment is even better than the photos, clean, very spacious and well equipped. Booking was very easy and Karen replied promptly to any queries we had. Entry was easy and straightforward. A short 5 minute walk from Tower Bridge, 10 minutes from The Tower of London and St. Katherines Dock. We also enjoyed walking to St. Pauls Cathedral and exploring Southbank.

Hope Karens apartment is available for our next trip to London.

Excellent in every way

  • 5 of 5

Property was super. Everything as described. Lovely having the little extras such as milk in fridge and tea & coffee. We enjoyed the communal garden and were lucky to have warm weather. Brilliant location. Can't wait to return.
