Great Place Near The Centre!!!
Had a lovely stay in a clean spacious room.
The room was as could be expected. It took me back to college times. The day we arrived the bathtub had a shower curtain. The second day the shower curtain was gone. The third day there was a new shower curtain and a bath rug. The kitchen had everything, but I was unable to get the toaster, or stove to work. The stove was gas, and and I was unable to get the starter to make the spark for the gas to catch the light. The glass of the oven door was separated from the oven door- but who uses an oven in london? There was cereal- which we never touched, coffee granulates, tea, sugar, solat, ramen, soup... plenty of dishes and utensils, pots and pans. The bathroom has some tiles cracked- but definitely (considering the condition it was in) well taken care off and cleaned. Once somebody from the other floor came and took like a 50 minute dump and shower- while we waited to use the bathroom to leave again. Our room looked great. It had a tv, bed, drawer, closet, table, two chairs, side table, bedside table,... everything we could need. One of the swivel chairs only had like 3 out of the 5 or 6 wheels attached- so it was a little different to sit on it. The windows rattled a little at night. Overall I would not think there be great insulation. It was rather cold outside while we were there and our "landlord" had the heat on throughout the house for us. It was comfortable. The bed was comfortable. The TV was on a fancy wall mount that could face everywhere. It was a good room. I could not have wished for more. The wifi passwords were very conveniently displayed- and good wifi. The whole of the apartment too me back to college living.
The place was easy to find due to the pictures and address we received by email beforehand. The keys were in a lockbox- so entering and final checkout were a breeze.
Great Room, Central Location
Lovely clean room, very accommodating host, will be back soon.
Clean and comfortable room. Apartment facilities well maintained.
10 min from subway, room was nice. bathroom was small. no internet(wlan router did not work)
We've been there for 5 days with 2 Families. The main room is spacious and nicely decorated. For the apartment itself I'd given 4-5 stars. But not for the current state:
- The bathroom floor was always wet due to a dripping toilet
- 2 of 4 bathroom lights were dead
- 2 of 4 heaters of the kitchen oven just got warm rather than hot
- The standard-lamp switch was not operational
- There are only the bare minimum kitchen accessoires (nothing to stir, no spatula etc.)
I told the host about all this and he assured me that it'll be fixed immediately.
So given that*: It's a great apartement, just a 10 minutes walk from the "Stepney Green" District Line tube. And it's a quiet neigborhood too (our kids might've been the only source of noise ;-)
A follow-on reviewer could validate this ;-)
The host contacted us only 3 days before our flight but he explained well the procedure.
The room is quite big for London standards but it is extrimely dirty.
The sheets weren't clean, evidently they were been already used by others and the towels provided by him were very dirty.
The shower located in the room was impossible to use due to the hot temperature of the water(the water comes out only on 40/45 °C).
I also asked by email if there would be a hairdrier in the house and he assured me that,but when we arrived there, there wasn't.
I tried to contact him several times and he never answered me.
The only positive thing is that the location is really good for exploring London(it's only 5 minute walk to Aldgate east station-zone2) and it's near to a Tesco express.
Definitely the apprtment is perfectly located! it is just a few steps away from the busy and beautiful heart of Shoreditch.
BUT the appartment is also pretty rough; if you are looking for a cosy place to stay this might not be the right one. If you are into being outside and enjoying the city, it is surely a good choice.
No light in the toilet, pretty dingy in the corners, but still a good choice in that awesome area!
Communication with owner was very good, no trouble at all!
