The apartment itself regularly has people stopping in the street to look up to see what the glass box is all about. People pop in the office downstairs to ask questions with the hope of popping in to have a look.

"Cool, unique, modern aparment"
I travel frequently to London for work and I prefer to stay in apartments rather than hotels. So over the years, I've stayed in many apartments around London. This apartment is by far one of the coolest and one of the most unique places I've stayed in a very long time.
It has a great balance of being very modern and very comfortable. The living area on the top floor is very generous open plan living. It is literally a glass box, which allows lots of light in and gives you great views over the London skyline. There are blinds that can be pulled down for privacy. It also has an outdoor deck which was lovely.
The master bedroom is very large with lots of storage and the second bedroom is very generous too. There is one very large bathroom next to the bedrooms. No bath, but a very large and very cool shower in the middle.
It is centrally located, so it was very easy for me to walk into the city for work if I had time, or to get public transport (buses and tube stations near by). Lots of little cool cafes and restaurants near by. Only one minor thing to be aware of is that there are a few stairs to the apartment. It is on 2 levels, and it is a second floor apartment.
I really enjoyed the apartment, it was comfortable, spacious, well equipped and everything worked! Highly recommend it.
