A luxury apartment in London has been rented for £1,800 a month – but many people were stunned by the size of one of the bedrooms, which they compared to a ‘prison cell’

The real estate ad caused a stir

With London rental prices as they are, a luxury three-bedroom property to rent for £1,800 a month might not seem so bad.

However, after seeing the third bedroom, some viewers weren’t so sure.

The house’s listing has been mocked online as some say one of the rooms looks like a ‘jail cell’.

The fully furnished apartment is in Woolwich and is on the new Elizabeth Line making it less than 15 minutes from central London.

In addition to three bedrooms, the place features a massive TV, an open-plan living room and a brand new kitchen.

It also has two bathrooms, windows and access to a garden.

According to the online publication, the letting agent is looking for long-term tenants with a minimum of one year.

The impressive building was once Woolwich Magistrates’ Court, was built in 1912 and is Grade II listed.

In the listing – left by OpenRent, it says that the third small room can be used as a study space, but since it comes with a single bed and a wardrobe, people weren’t impressed.

One viewer joked: ‘Prisoners in Sweden live better than Londoners.’
Another said: ‘You’re doing 20 for £1.8k a month.’
