About Amanda Jepson
My husband works in and near the City of London and I am a kiwi lawyer based in Chancery Lane so the flat is ideally located for us to use when the flat is not rented out and when family commitments permit! We have 3 small (rapidly growing) children which also keep us busy. As we have small children, if you need a travel cot (for infants) we have this in the flat so you don't need to lug it with you, and of course we can provide advice on child friendly places although most places are now geared up for children around Tower Hill and the main tourist attractions.
Amanda Jepson purchased this Apartment in 2006
Why Amanda Jepson chose City of London
The flat is a short walk to some amazing tourist attractions such as the Tower of London, St Pauls Cathedral, the Tate Gallery, to name just a few. Just a short walk over Tower Bridge (after taking the tour inside the bridge) takes you to some very nice restaurants and the South Bank of the Thames. From here you can walk to the Tate and along the Thames to Borough Market and the Cutty Sark ship. There are plenty of supermarkets within walking distance and Borough and Leadenhall markets for more specialist options - The Cheese Shop in Leadenhall market is run by a lady named Sue who knows all there is to know about speciality cheeses! We both really enjoy visiting the theatre and it is realatively easy to get a taxi, bus or tube back from the theatre district to the flat, and plenty of places near the theatres for a pre theatre meal. And if you are feeling more adventurous, there is the East End of London and Brick Lane to explore for curry houses and lots of bars, so it really is a great location for everyone.
What makes this Apartment unique
Unusually for London the flat has a large patio as well as a separate Juliet balcony and it has a peep of the Thames River from the balcony. You could not really be closer to major transport links but it has the advantage of being quiet at the weekends and evenings when the commuters go home. It is a very safe neighbourhood - one in which I have never felt threatened when coming home late from work or the theatre by myself.

Quality apartment, with plenty of room for my wife, myself and our 24 year old son. Separate bedroom gives you plenty of space. Terrace is a nice perk (as long as it's not raining). Location was perfect. Underground's Circle Line is a minute away by foot and will take you to almost all the sites. Pubs and restaurants surround the place, though it's a business district so operating hours my be shorter and some may be closed weekends. That makes for a quiet neighborhood. Thames just down the street and St. Katherine's dock a short walk. Calum, the concierge, is a nice fellow and very helpful. Recommend Rajasthan II, an Indian restaurant that's a short walk away. Food is on the mild side, but tasty. Jack the Ripper tour was entertaining and informative. So great overall experience. No need to Brexit this place early. :-)
The apartment was fine, clean , well equipped but sometimes stuffy. The area has almost no services especially on Saturday and Sunday. It is a shut down zone those days. Nice people in the building.
This is a guest who was very rude and who I won't rent to again. Judge for yourself the many many positive reviews we have. If the apartment is stuffy, open the patio doors on both sides of the lounge area! The flat is located in the City of London - an area with a lot of office workers, and thus there are no office workers on weekends, which I really like. The local shops, bars, supermarkets, restaurants, coffee shops are all still open.
Met all our expectations and more.
What a find! We have stayed in London over the years (including both Hiltons) and this was far and away the best accommodation we have had. It had absolutely everything to make us comfortable including a virtual next door location to one of the main underground lines. It was a clean, well equipped, modern apartment with a balcony that looked out at the Guerken and only a few hundred metres away from the tower and the bridge. The Concierge Callum was so helpful and an absolute delight. Wouldn't stay anywhere else in London. We have been spoiled.
Great place to stay in London
Amanda’s property near the Tower is very well appointed, in a great location with easy transport and lots to see and do.
Very nice flat. Would certainly stay again.
Awesome London trip
My wife and I visited London for 10 days in early June and stayed at Amanda’s flat and had a great time. The city was beautiful and the flat was just about perfect, very clean, everything we needed was there, tube stop was literally 100 yards away.
There are many points of historic interest, including the Tower of London, Tower Bridge, the Roman Wall and All Saints Church and St. Katherine's Dock. As it is located in 'The City' or financial district, the area is considered very safe, even for walking around late at night. Due to the flat's proximity to four tube stations, namely Aldgate, Bank and Tower Hill stations, as well as the Docklands Light Railway, you can hop on and quickly get to any major attraction in central London: Buckingham Palace, Churchill's War Rooms, Whitehall, Houses of Parliament, Kensington Palace or to the east, Canary Wharf, Brick Lane, Smithfields and Spitalfield markets. It is also about a 20 min walk to St Paul's Cathedral and I definitely recommend making the walk to the top if you're up to it, as well as to the top of The Monument, a 7 min walk away from the flat which marks the site of the Great Fire of London.
