"A lovely place to come back to after a tiring day of sightseeing"
The apartment was clean and comfortable and furnished to a very high standard. Personal touches like ornaments, paintings and fresh flowers made it feel like a home rather than a rental.
The location, less than 1 minute from the train and DLR station, meant easy access into central London but also enabled us to appreciate the many attractions that Greenwich has to offer.
At the end of a long day of sightseeing the apartment provided a welcome retreat where we could relax and recharge our batteries.

"This apartment was perfect for us and totally deserved a gold medal."
This apartment was perfect for us, the owners were helpful and the business side was extremely smooth. We were warmly welcomed and introduced to the apartment which is really lovely, tastefully furnished, comfortable and practical, it soon became our home from home. The Greenwich location was perfect for us too as we had tickets for events at Olympic equestrians venue. This is also where the fairness of the owners was most aparent as their price for this period was extremely reasonable.
Greenwich was a surprise, a very pleasant one, what an interesting area. the Cutty Sark, the Naval College, Greenwich Park which has the Observatory, the museums, local shops, Greenwich market (I bought some beautiful gifts there), the icecream tea shop mmm and several eating places all added to our holiday.
Our biggest thrill, apart from the Olympics, was the river ferries, you could not ask for a better way to travel into the centre of London especially for access to places like the Tower or the Houses of Parliament, totally stress free and they ran really late at night too.
The apartment was close to the DLR station at Greenwich and our ventures on this form of transport proved positive experiences. Frequent services linking into the underground.
I still have trouble believing we found such a perfect place to stay, do try it, I can't praise it enough. We awarded the apartment and owners a gold medal (a Cadbury's chocolate one) as we were so happy with our stay, totally enhanced our Olympic experience.

The Greenwich flat was great for our stay in London this year. My partner and I have been to london numerous times over the years and would return to the "Rubicon" again.
Christina met me at the flat even though my flight arrived late. after 11 hours on a plane I was tired and to have a very nice welcome was great. Upon arrivial she showed me the things I needed to know and to call if there were any problems, and told me about the "Quirky" washing machine. We did have an issue with the machine when we tried to use it later in the week. I called and reached Lawrence and he came over to sort the problem. Since our stay the washing machine QUIRK has been fixed. LOL.
The flat is a bit of a journey from heathrow but once there its less than a min walk to the Greenwich DLR train station. We found it to be more convienent to use the Cannon Street Tube station to access the DLR during the weekdays but it closed on the weekends.
There is aslo a small shop within 50 meters of the flat that is pretty well stocked for those things you need without having to go far. They are also a very friendly neighbour hood shop.
The BIG Question is "Would we stay there again ? " The Answer is Yes ......
They even had a Welcome bottle of Champagne and Milk and Orange Juice in the Fridge waiting.

"Elegant apartment in a very convenient location for London"
We have enjoyed our stay in the apartment for a week. It is located in a very convenient location, less than 2 mins walk to Greenwich train/DLR station with frequent trains to London Bridge Tube station (7 mins), Cannon St. and Charing Cross where you can connect with London Tube network. The apartment itself is very quiet and comfortable with all amenities and is very elegantly decorated. A small food and wine shop is at the corner of the block and a medium size supermarket is about 5 mins walk. The front door key and the washer/dryer needed a bit of getting used to but once you knew the tricks (and read the instructions!), they worked perfectly.
There was no internet connection in the apartment but if you need to go online, you could connect to the public wifi (BTOpenzone) and pay as you go (GBP 15 for 5 days, other options available). Vodafone and T Mobile cellphone signals were strong (stay away from O2 UK where signal was quite poor)
Christina and her family who greeted us on arrival are very warm and helpful. We wholeheartedly recommend the place to visitors to London.
