About Mary Ginty

I have worked in the hospitality industry for the past 20 years and like to think that my standards are high.

Mary Ginty purchased this apartment in 1995

Why Mary Ginty chose London

This apartment is my former home, very comfortable and very central. The street is very quiet but a short walk from the transport system to get you around town.

The Thames Clipper river bus is 5 minutes walk away and it is an amazing way to view the city and much cheaper than the tourist charter boats.

Cozy and convenient

  • 5 of 5

Our family of four, two adults and two teenagers, found this a perfect base for our 8-day trip to London in the week leading up to Easter. Vito greeted us as we arrived and showed us around the 3rd floor flat. It appeared exactly as it had in photos, with all promised conveniences. Vito had stocked the fridge and cupboard with a few thoughtfully chosen items like tea, milk, jam, and cookies, and the lovely lemon tart mentioned in prior reviews. We provisioned ourselves from nearby small grocery stores (Little Waitrose and Sainsbury's Local) for breakfasts and some dinners in, and my husband loved the access to a Starbucks. We found the beds comfortable and the flat was a quiet place to retreat to after busy touring days in the city. We never would have slept so well in a hotel. The two single beds in one bedroom were perfect for our teens who no longer find it fun sharing a bed. The hot water was plentiful, and there were adequate outlets for our many devices, including a nice charging tower with two adapters. There is even a small safe - remember to ask for the combination because these are not self-programming like many in US hotels.

It was so convenient being a few minutes walk from Vauxhall Station where there is access to both the underground and the train station; we bought 7-day travel cards and loaded them on Oyster Cards for easy transit. We took day trips to the Making of Harry Potter in Leavesden and to York to see the Minster, streets, and walls and a bit of the countryside from the train. We otherwise stayed in central London seeing the sights. The location near the south bank made for easy access to the embankment walk, many attractions along the Thames, and to bridges into London proper.

If you are a foodie, do not miss Borough Market! French duck confit sandwiches and cream-filled doughnuts! We were not able to try Italo, the little Italian deli, as it was closed on the two or three occasions we stopped by. We liked Nando's so much on our first jet-lagged night that we ate there again on our last night -- a good informal option for families.

We would stay here again in a heartbeat and will recommend to anyone looking to stay in London.

Perfect apartment, ideally located.

  • 5 of 5

Located a three minute walk from the underground and a 15 minute walk from Westminster...it couldn't have been more central.

The flat was very well equipped and very close to both a Waitrose and Sainsbury's. Starbucks was a great stop before getting on the underground.

The beds were very comfortable. We all slept very well.

I would say our only complaint would be that the internet service was very slow and a bit spotty.

Please be aware that although your reservation states check out is 11:00 am, it is actually 10:00 am... that was a bit of a surprise.

All in all a wonderful stay. The hosts had coffee, milk and a lovely little cake waiting for us. Very thoughtful.

We will definitely stay again and would certainly recommmend it to anyone visiting London.

Awesome and very convenient place to stay in London!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at this location during spring break and it exceeded our expectations. The owner met us upon arrival, had a cake, tea and milk ready in the fridge and departed and left the flat to us. The key to this flat is the location. Only a 5 minute walk to Vauxhall station where you can get anywhere fast on the Tube. We had 4 people in the flat for the week for spring break and were more than comfortable. It was a great place for families with 2 rooms, one with twin beds for kids and one master bedroom. We would have not problem staying here again. Place was clean and well cared for.
