Woodland Crescent, London SE10 9UF, United Kingdom
Greenwich is a historical area of London that has been regenerated and gentrified in recent years, making the famous observatory - the centre of all time - and surrounding parks and old naval quarters a popular tourist attraction. Cygnet House is right in the centre of Greenwich, a short walk to the riverfront and historical pubs, and an even shorter walk into Greenwich Park and the observatory. (There's a small supermarket just up the road too).
A collection of serviced apartments, the penthouse suite is a one bedroom flat with a huge balcony, and fully equipped kitchen, and floor to ceiling windows in the lounge to watch the clouds pass by. It's all done out in the now classic Swedish minimal style - hardwood floors, contemporary furnishings - with a small but functional bathroom (complete with bath and powerful shower). As a base for exploring the local area and being able to cook at home - and relax with the huge plasma TV as well - it's hard to beat.
