NIGHTINGALE 1, CLAPHAM, UK - LONDON
The Nightingale apartments offer a fantastic home base for exploring all of London. It is centered in one of London’s most popular “villages” that is full of local character and charm. The exterior of this historical building, which houses five apartments in total, has a lot of character, with an ornate façade, and dome feature. All apartments were recently renovated.
Nightingale 1 is modern, luxuriously decorated with high quality furniture, and full of light. From the building's 2nd floor landing, you enter the apartment through a private hallway, from which all rooms lead.

The very well-equipped kitchen has ample work space and additional seating for two at the breakfast bar. There is one bedroom complete with a double bed, bedside reading lamps, and built-in wardrobes. The bathroom is off the entrance hall next to the bedroom.

Clapham, UK - London, Home of Nightingale 1
Clapham is one of London's best known and popular historic neighborhoods. Situated in South West London, it offers lots of parks and great transportation links to both central London and tourist attractions outside London. The city center can be reached in as little as 15 minutes.
The area is popular with young affluent families and professionals for its laid-back, friendly, unfussy vibe and open green spaces. Central to this is Clapham Common. This large parkland area, with ponds, cafes and a traditional bandstand (playing concerts in the summer months) is very popular with locals and visitors alike. Even Benjamin Franklin carried out experiments on the pond here.
There are numerous traditional, trendy and quirky pubs, all selling good, local craft beers and great food. There's also a huge variety of restaurants offering cuisine from all around the world. We especially recommend the quaint Clapham Picture House to catch a movie, Venn Street Market every Saturday with its various street food stalls, and a walk across the Common to the Old Town to explore the pubs and restaurants there.
Clapham offers you the opportunity to have a local, village-like experience, away from the hordes of tourists.
Customer comments about Nightingale 1, Clapham, UK - London
"It was quiet, pleasant and very comfortable. Since the weather was unusually hot and we had to keep the windows open, the noise from the street was loud. However, we found the apartment to meet all our needs. It was close to the tube and had several groceries nearby."

An Explanation of the Ratings: The first column of figures is the highest score possible in each category. The column on the far right is the score for this particular apartment in this category. For this set of ratings, we have asked every Untour staff person who has seen the apartment to rate the individual features. Many of these staff people have been in a position to hear reports (good and bad) from customers over the years, so they offer a particularly well-informed perspective. Nevertheless, customer ratings will be included in the overall ratings as soon as possible.
