Reviews for this host's other properties
The apartment is nice, cosy, bright, well located and very clean.
I stayed here for 4 days and 5 nights with a friend and we felt perfectly at home.
The small kitchenette is very useful and fully equipped for 2 or 3 people; the bed is very comfortable and the shower worked perfectly. There was even a washing machine that we didn’t have the time to use. There were even europe adaptors, thanks a lot for this courtesy.
What’s been said about the traffic noise (ambulances, police sirens, etc.) is accurate. It didn’t really bother us too much but it does get quite at times, but not excessively noisy, which might bother some hosts especially at night time. Also, the wood Venetian blinds do not hide the bright lights properly from the main avenue. It would be great if the owner could get a long and thick curtain and double glazing. This would really solve the only negative points of this accommodation.
It is a very lively quarter. You’ll find everything you need nearby in terms of food, goods and services. Both tube stations Aldgate East or Whitechapel (District/Hammersmith & City lines) are approximately 10 minutes’ walk from the apartment. If you’re a tube addict as myself, please do consider taking bus 15. The bus stop “New road” is nearly in front of the house and it takes you directly to several central points of interest such as St Paul’s cathedral, Tower hill and Trafalgar square (last stop). It is rather comfortable heading back home from Trafalgar on the 15. It does take about half an hour but it is direct and a rather pleasant trip.
The apartment that you will be booking online might not be the one you’ll get. Tarina and her family rent several small apartments in the area but they seem to be quite similar. We met several Tarina’s relatives during the stay, notably at the check in/out. They live in the area and are very kind and helpful. Everything was very functional so we just contacted them once to let them know that the remote control wasn’t working and they quickly replaced it. They also managed to keep our luggage before and after the check in/out, which was extremely useful for us. If you need any help do not hesitate to communicate with any of them. Thank you Tarina, Bill and Mabs for your kindness and assistance.
See you someday maybe. :-)
Wir, zwei erwachsene Frauen, hatten das Studio für eine Nacht gemietet. Wir waren bei Abreise mit den angeboten Leistungen sehr zufrieden:
a) Unsere freundliche Ansprechpartner vor Ort sind uns hinsichtlich der Schlüsselübergabe entgegengekommen: am 9. Juli hat die U-Bahn in London gestreikt, und wir konnten die für die Schlüsselübergabe vereinbarte Zeit deshalb nicht einhalten.
b) Das Studio (Bad incl.) entspricht der Beschreibung online. Es ist sauber, für kurze Aufenthalte sparsam, aber ausreichend ausgestattet. Die Matrazen der zwei Zwei-Personen-Bettensind haben wir als gut befunden. Wir haben gut geschlafen. Wenn geschlossen, schützen die schweren Vorhängen gut vor hoher Außentemperatur.
c) Zur Lage:
Von Aldgate aus (Endstation Bus Nr. 205) bis zum Studio haben wir - wie angekündigt - nicht mehr als 12-15 Minuten gebraucht.
Allerdings: Zum Tower of London haben wir (via Rampart Str, Cannon Str., Docks etc.) ca. 15 Minuten zu Fuß benötigt, und hatten ein zügiges Tempo. :-)
P.S. Bedingt durch den Metro-Streik brauchte man am 9. July 2015 SEHR lange für die Busfahrt (205) zwischen St. Pancras and Aldgate.
Mit gutem Gewissen empfehle ich dieses Studio weiter.
We, two female adults, had booked the studio for one night. We were very satisfied with the offered performances:
a) Both our contact persons on site were friendly and accommodating towards us as, due to the strike (the tube has been striking on July 9th, 2015), we could not fetch the key at the time on which we had agreed.
b) The flat (bathroom included) is as described. It is clean and, if scarcely furnished, still equipped well enough for a short stay. The mattresses of both double beds were OK for us. We slept well. When closed, the heavy curtains protect well against the external warmth, and keep the flat fresh during the night.
c) As to the location:
From Aldgate (Terminal of bus 205) to the flat it took us no more than 12 or15 min - as announced.
To reach the Tower of London however (via Rampart Str, Cannon Str., along parts of the Docks etc.), we needed an approximately 15 min.walk - at a good speed. :-)
P.S. Because of the strike on July 9th, 2015 all trips with bus 205 from St. Pancras' to Aldgate or back last a VERY LONG time.
So, frankly, we recommand this flat to other visitors.
Das Appartment lag recht zentral in der Nähe der Whitechappel Station (ca. 5 Gehminuten). Das Viertel rund um die Haltestelle ist zwar nicht das schönste, aber je näher man zum Appartment kommt um so schöner wird die Umgebung. Das Appartment zog sich über zwei Etagen. In der unteren gab es ein großes Zimmer mit kleiner Kochzeile (ohne Backofen), einem großen Doppelbett und einer Coach. In der oberen Etage gab es einen kleinen Flur mit Bad und einem zweitem Zimmer. Insgesamt war das Appartment sauber, die Besitzer super freundlich und hilfsbereit und der Preis für Londoner Verhältnisse angemessen, also sehr zu empfehlen!!
Fantastic studio to stay and see London, just 5 minutes by bus from the Tower of London. The studio was clean and has everything you need to stay for a couple of days. The host has served us so well messages to resolve our doubts, and once in the studio to give us the keys. In short, it is a highly recommended accommodation.
Fantástico estudio para alojarse y conocer Londres, a tan sólo 5 minutos en autobús de la Torre de Londres. El estudio estaba limpio y tiene todo lo necesario para alojarnos durante un par de días. El anfitrión nos ha atendido perfectamente tanto por mensajes para resolver nuestras dudas, así como una vez en el estudio para darnos las llaves. En definitiva, es un alojamiento muy recomendable.
We had a great stay at Tarina's apartment. Good location near Brick Lane and Shoreditch area, flexible check in/out was possible because of her "cooperation" with her uncles. Overall a good experience...
My husband and I have stayed three days in the east end studio apartment.
Communication with Tarina before we got was super and everything patted on arrival.
There is a tesco supermarket close by. Similarly, underground (use Whitechapel) and bus close to.
The apartment is small - but that's what you need - bathroom- kitchen - bed ok.
Remember power adapter.
But then there's the area and Commercial Road. We must just laws, we had come to the multiethnic and vibrant London.
The windows of the apartment is thin and leaky, so there is a lot of noise at night.
But all in all we had a wonderful trip.
Min mand og jeg har boet 3 dage i east end studio lejligheden .
Kommunikationen med Tarina før vi kom var super og alting klappede ved ankomsten.
Der er et tesco supermarked tæt ved . Ligeledes er undergrund ( brug White chapel) og bus også tæt på.
Lejligheden er lille - men der er det man skal bruge - badeværelse- køkken - seng ok.
Husk el adapter .
Men så er der lige området og commercial Road. Vi skal da lige love for , vi var kommet til det multietniske og pulserende London.
Vinduerne i lejligheden er tynde og utætte, så der er en hel del støj om natten.
Men alt i alt havde vi en dejlig tur .
My paermanenza and 'lasted for only one night and I was very satisfied. The girl / guys running the studio were kind and helpful. Once you request the room response and 'arrived within five minutes. Because my phone terrible (no driver) I had 20 minutes after the scheduled check in pattutito and despite what 'a guy gave me directions telefonioche and he waited. Minuses: a window does not close completely, but being on the second floor, I never felt insecure about this. The kettle has a little limestone inside and I washed again before making a herbal tea. At night they hear some sirens that can disturb sleepers more 'light.
Positives: apartment small but clean, hot water, towels and dish towels, internet working perfectly, ten minutes walk from the more 'nearby underground station and a minute walk from the bus. Just in case, like me, you forgot your phone charger know that TV and 'new and has a USB port fully functional.
Very positive. I was alone and I did not feel in danger, but this accomodation and 'perfect for a couple to stay a few days in London. When it divided into two price 'really hard to beat, certain niche and' very small and intimate, but really has everything 'you need.
La mia paermanenza e' durata una sola notte e sono stata molto soddisfatta. La ragazza/ragazzi che gestiscono il monolocale sono stati gentili e disponibili. Una volta richiesta la camera la risposta e' arrivata nel giro di 5 minuti. Causa il mio telefono terribile (niente navigatore) ho avuto 20 minuti di ritardo sull'orario di check in pattutito e nonostante cio' un ragazzo mi ha dato indicazioni telefonioche e mi ha aspettata. Lati negativi: una delle finestre non si chiude completamente ma essendo al secondo piano non mi sono mai sentita insicura per questo. La kettle ha un poco di calcare dentro e la ho rilavata prima di fare una tisana. Di notte si sentono alcune sirene che possono disturbare chi ha il sonno piu' leggero.
Lati positivi: appartamentino piccolo ma pulito, acqua calda, asciugamani e strofinacci da cucina, internet perfettamente funzionante, dieci minuti a piedi dalla piu' vicina fermata underground e un minuto a piedi dal bus. Se per caso, come me, dimenticaste il caricabatterie del cellulare sappiate che la tv e' nuova e ha una porta usb perfettamente funzionante.
Bilancio molto positivo. Io ero sola e non mi sono sentita in pericolo, ma questa accomodation e' perfetta per una coppia che voglia rimanere qualche giorno a Londra. Se diviso in due il prezzo e' davvero difficile da battere, certo il posticino e' molto piccolo ed intimo, ma davvero ha tutto cio' che serve.
We have used three of the accommodation for four days.
The apartment is very small, but was exactly the pictures and was fully furnished incl. Washing machine, ironing ones / ironing board, fan, hair dryer, toaster, microwave. The location is very central, only about 10-15 minutes walk from Tower Bridge, unfortunately the area is not even particularly beautiful. The bed was fine, the sofa bed but unfortunately very worn. Ok for a few nights, for longer stays, however, rather difficult.
Overall a very good value for money, recommended for shorter stays. Would we stay there again.
Wir haben die Unterkunft zu dritt für vier Tage genutzt.
Die Wohnung ist zwar sehr klein, entsprach aber genau den Bildern und war komplett eingerichtet inkl. Waschmaschine, Bügeleinsen/-brett, Ventilator, Fön, Toaster, Mikrowelle. Die Lage ist sehr zentral, nur ca. 10-15 min Fußweg vom Tower Bridge entfernt, leider ist die Gegend selbst nicht besonders schön. Das Bett war in Ordnung, die Schlafcouch aber leider sehr durchgelegen. Ok für ein paar Nächte, für längere Aufenthalte jedoch eher schwierig.
Insgesamt ein sehr gutes Preis-Leistungs-Verhältnis, empfehlenswert für kürzere Aufenthalte. Würden wir wieder buchen.
Nice small and clean apartment in a good location near Tower and bus stop just around the corner. The reception by the uncle was very cordial. My cousin and I have felt very comfortable.
Schöne kleine und saubere Wohnung in einer guten Lage nähe Tower und Bushaltestelle vor der Tür. Der Empfang durch den Onkel war sehr herzlich. Meine Cousine und ich haben uns sehr wohl gefühlt.
My boyfriend and I stayed in the apartment for three nights. Tarinas uncle met up with us to show us the apartment and give us the keys, which worked out well. Considering the price, the apartment was OK, though there was some things that turned out to be not so great. Either my boyfriend or I get disturbed by noise while we sleep, but if you do, this is neither the apartment or the area for you. Commercial Road is lively and there's a fire station just a block from the apartment. The sound of sirens were almost constant. Also, the walls were really thin, so you could sometimes get disturbed by the neighbours. When it comes to the bathroom, it was hard to close the door properly. The biggest problem was that the water in the shower didn't go down the drain properly, so if you had to wait ages for it do go down. In our case, one of us had to shower in the morning and one in the evening before going to bed. Also, the mat in the bathroom outside the shower was a door mat... Not so nice. In addition to that, there was loads of dust on areas as the window panes, on top of the microwave and the shelves.
