It is Central London's only marina and boasts a wide choice of restaurants, bars and shops in one of the capital's hidden gems.
Attractions nearby include the Tower of London, HMS Belfast, Tower Bridge, Borough Market, The Globe Theatre and Tate Modern. Tower Hill Underground Station is a 10-minute scenic walk away, providing great transport links across the city.

Set across 2 decks, the vessel offers 2 bedrooms, a shower room, a guest toilet, an open-plan living area with a sofa bed, a kitchen, a dining area and a viewing deck. Sleeps up to 4 guests. Essentials, linen, towels and WiFi are provided.
The open-plan living area is furnished with a built-in sofa and a flat-screen TV. The sofa can be converted into a single sofa bed. The adjacent dining area can seat up to 4 guests. The kitchen is fully-equipped and includes a cafetiere, a coffee machine, a fridge/freezer, a microwave, a kettle, a toaster and an oven.
The first bedroom is furnished with 2 single beds. The second bedroom is furnished with a double bed and a single bed, alongside an en-suite shower room. There is a guest toilet at your disposal. Bathroom essentials are provided, including towels and toiletries.

Tower Hill Underground Station is a 10-minute walk away, servicing the Circle and District lines. The nearest bus stop is St Katharine Docks (Stop TN). If you're travelling by car, the A100 Tower Bridge Road is just around the corner and there is pay-and-display parking nearby. If you’d like to explore the city by bicycle, there is a Santander Cycles bike sharing station just down the road from the boathouse.
Please be aware that the water on the boat is non-potable and is not for drinking. As such, please ensure that you bring your own drinking water. Also, kindly note that the WiFi is provided by the Marina, which is free to use but requires an initial registration.
Please note that the water system is different from a regular one - the boat has a calorifier tank that is smaller compared to domestic systems. Please allow some time between showers for the water to heat up. Also, our guests can use the marina facilities which offer virtually unlimited hot water.
Please note the Marina has laundry facility for the guests use.
Wifi is provided by the marina and the speed may vary, although usually the signal strength is good.
ALTIDO London will be in touch to offer you assistance with airport transfers and in-stay services, such as in-stay cleans and linen changes. If there is anything that has been missed out or if you have any questions at all, please don't hesitate to get in touch. All feedback is appreciated.
Please note that а refundable damage deposit of GBP 200 is mandatory and should be paid via card and upon check-in. We inspect the property after you check out; if no damage we refund the deposit within 7 days via bank transfer. Please provide us with your bank details when you book with us.
ALTIDO wants you to have a fantastic stay, and we encourage you to see the space as a home away from home—treating it as though it is yours! There are, of course, a few things we politely ask guests to note before their arrival and throughout their stay:
- Strictly no smoking, no parties, no pets.
- Dispose of rubbish appropriately.
- Keep the property clean and tidy.
- Whilst washing up and stripping the beds at check-out would be appreciated, it is by no means expected.
- Quiet hours are between 10 PM and 9 AM. So please keep the noise down and respect the neighbours in the building.
- Please remember to close all windows and doors when leaving.
- To ensure the safety of our current and future guests, we ask all guests to complete our online check-in form and to provide a valid form of identification.
- Careful attention to the keys is extremely important. Guests are responsible for any additional costs resulting from misplaced keys or locksmith call-outs.
