The first and foremost plus point is the location. Stand on the main door and you can see The tower castle right across the road and the river Thames next to it with the tower bridge close by. A beautiful wooden doorway, carpeted floors, sensor lights in the stairways and corridor that comes on as you approach.
Adjacent to the apartment building is the trinity square garden, a walk across this garden will lead you straight into the Tower hill tube station on the District & Circle line making it very convenient for you to connect with any other place or attraction in London.
You have a Tesco, T Max and M & S close by within walking distance. Bodean Pub is right on the ground floor and u have another PUB behind the building.
The apartment itself is very well furnished, a brilliant mix of Antique & Modern. Very spacious,heaters, good bathrooms, very comfortable beds and the most important thing - Absolutely clean and good condition.
The Tube passes right beneath the building and that does give a slight vibration, however it is a very mild one and soon you will stop noticing it. The wooden floors do creak such that made me feel someone knocked on the door...and that gets spooky at times..lol.
The housekeeping staff comes in once a week, does a brilliant job and are very courteous, polite and friendly.
One thing that they could add is a bolt from the inside on the main door. The maintenance staff knocked on the main door one day and as i was inside in the bedroom the knocking was not audible. He assume that no one was in the apartment and used his spare key and came in. I was startled. This was one aspect that the Bridgestreet apartment needs to reconsider. A good thing that i wasn't in the shower then. The management seriously needs to give a bolt on the inside of the main door so that in case the guest is inside no one from outside could just open the door with spare keys and come in.
A lovely place to stay, a home away from home.
This was my second stay at a Bridgestreet Apartment. The first one was at Market View, London. The experiences at both were good. I would personally prefer Tower View slightly more due to the location.
Unlike Market View, the keys for Tower View had to be collected from a different place (King's Wardrobe). The details will be mentioned in the confirmation email. But unfortunately it was a little ambiguous in mine. Thankfully the chauffeur I had booked through Bridgestreet knew the exact location and was very nice.
It's a Monday morning. Through the glass window of the bedroom one could see that it was still very dark, yet the alarm starting beeping. It's 7AM. The good warm sleep on *comfortable bed* comes to an end. Still lying on the bed I reach for the *clock / FM machine*, switch off the alarm and turn on the FM. Voila! London Hearts 106.2 with some good morning music.
I take a hot shower; iron my clothes; drink cold milk; heat and eat some food; and watch TV to get some weekend football match updates.
The apartment had all basis amenities. The place was cleaned once a week on a Wednesday.
Commute: The Tower Hill tube station (Circle and District Line) is just a 2 mins walk. The Monument station is at a 12 mins walk which is on Central line.
Near-by: It is located right in front of Tower of London and Tower Bridge. I strongly recommend the Thames Walk from Tower to at least the Millennium Bridge.
Vegetarian food: Loads of options! Zippi (Italian, open till 10/11PM), Pret, Pizza Express, and few more at 5-10 mins walk.
Bar: The Liberty Bounds is open long hours.
P.S: During midnight I could notice the vibration in the hall possibly caused by the train passing in the tube!
Tower View appartments were really cozy and nice appartments which help you enjoy your trip completely.Best is the view that you get from your common room and bed room.Its located near tower view underground station which is good. Only problem is that since its an office area you will find area busy during weekdays even till midnight with people enjoying their nightlife and drinks in pubs around but the area is less populated on weekend. Only you get to see tourrists on weekends.....and the shops also closes early so you need to plan your dinner on time.There are many Indian restuarents also near by. The appartments are good the bed is cozy and gives a good night sleep.
