Venus & Saturn

Venus & Saturn, Plum Guide home in London, UK

Venus & Saturn, Plum Guide home in London, UK

Click to book Venus & Saturn now: from £275 per night While we wouldn't recommend this home if you dislike the colour orange, the clementine walls are a cheerful feature that reflect how much fun you could have here. The host provides spices, condiments and coffee, making it easy to just show up and start enjoying yourself – we are confident you will feel well cared for in this home. There's plenty of space to flop on the squashy grey sofas and a slick kitchen if you're planning to do some cooking for your guests. The true standout feature here, however, is the location. It’s an ideal spot for people travelling for business and working nearby (due to its proximity to The City) – there's even a desk if you need to catch up on some emails out of hours. Tourists will be equally happy with the Tower of London just a twelve-minute walk away in one direction, and the vintage markets of Brick Lane a ten-minute walk away in the other direction. And, if you stick your head out the window, you can see one of London's most iconic buildings, The Gherkin. Sleeps up to 6 | 2 Bedrooms | 2 Bathrooms
