Tower Hamlets is the borough east of central London, with very easy access to the city and central London by tube (Central line, District line and the DLR). There are also plenty of buses and night buses running 24/7 from all directions in London.
It forms the core of the East End, home to a lot of exciting history. Tower Hamlets lies east of the medieval walled City of London. Use of the term "East End" in a pejorative sense began in the late 19th century, as the expansion of the population of London led to extreme overcrowding throughout the area and a concentration of poor people and immigrants in the districts that made it up. It was also in these neighborhoods the infamous Jack the Ripper operated in 1888.
Today Tower Hamlets is a diversified borough of London, and the status has increased a lot over the last decade. This is where you find the amazing Brick Lane market, along with many hip bars. 10 minutes walk from Brick Lane is Shoreditch, which is one of the most popular clubbing areas at the moment.

Reviews of this property
very good and great flat
very friendly and helpful hosts
We enjoyed our room and the possibility of the kitchen
Bus - Stop nearly in front of the flat
The room is situated near the quite big street with bus stops (3min walk) and underground (15min walk). 30min by bus to City of London (Tower Hill), 1h to City of Westminster. Few shops nearby.
The room is quite small, as you can see in the pictures (they are real). There's only one bathroom and toilet at the corridor, so if there's many people you need to wait a minute in the morning or evening. Fridge inside a room, TV, towels and good price - that make this offer really worth recommendation despite few weak points. Advise: contact Ivanilda one hour before you arrive - she need to get to the apartment to give you keys (she don't live there).
do NOT reccomend! Since arrived London, appears that given phone is not existing thus no possibility to contact her (!). Check-in not available. No mails reply. even. Its an offer to someone who like to made prepaid and get no service
I didn´t get the room I ordered and was moved to another location. It was OK and the owner even pick me up and drive me to the location. But the room was not in this condition which I have ordered and it was impossible to switch of the radiator so I had to leave the window open in a noisy neigborhood. The toilet was without sink. The bathroom and kitchen was very nice, and we get new towels and have the bed was conditioned, very nice just like a hotel.
The room was nice and regarding london's prices quite cheap.
Toilet and shower were freshly cleaned by the houselady on our arrival, which worked out perfectly fine. We called one hour and a half before the keys were needed and arrived just in time.
Markets, bicycles (for rent) and cheap food places were just around the corner (< 5 min.).
Distance to bus station was excellent (< 5 min.), distance to underground was okay (15-20 min.).
London is a pretty expensive place so having a cinema that shows movies on wednesdays for 4 pounds is a very affordable option for one night's entertainment (less than 15 min. walking distance).
One small downer: The locks for the front door of the appartment need rework.
It's the second time we stayed in Ivanilda's house, and it was as great as the first time! The house again is very clean and we were allowed to use washing machine, which helped a lot when we've already on traveling for one week. Thank you Ivanilda!
It is not easy to evaluate the stay ..
All in all, the room was really positive. It was as pictured in the photos - although I would have expected more. What have concealed the photos in my opinion a bit were the few shortcomings. Basically, just little things, so nothing serious. Cabinet was rampuniert something and did not close in the Nachkästchen a well-known Swedish furniture manufacturer I have a need to tighten two screws, so that the front one could not fall contrary, the window was missing some plastic parts and the antenna cable ran off the wall desedimentation why the reception very fluctuated (but you're not in London to watch TV;))
The cleanliness was okay. Have looked only at the last day under the bed, so no idea if the dust was already there or by airing arrived during the day.
The bathroom and the toilet was very neat. For this a thumbs up! I also do not understand why ..if a hole in the lining of the pipes - no matter.
What has particularly verhagelt me the beginning of the stay, was the telephone contact. A man who so clearly not the woman in the photo, answered the phone and told me that he could only be there in an hour. Well, that was an hour wait self-inflicted. But two hours had me then but bit too much. So when I called the second time, I was pushed away directly. Only after, admittedly somewhat harsh, SMS he called back and told me I should just ring the bell.
The man on the spot, apparently yet another (or not?) Was really nice and accommodating! He also gets a thumbs up!
Was not too pushy, always good-humored, asked how the day was ... Just as you want it!
Unfortunately, there was no contact with the others in the apartment, except for a quick 'Hello' and a smile in the hallway.
All in all, the price was more or less justified. Especially the good location (one / two stations ride on the DLR and one is at the Tower Bridge) is very convenient.
Now that I know how the keys proceeds more (thus I need me next time unnecessarily angry), I might even go back to this room.
(Basically, rounded up something between three and four stars, but I have time)
Es ist nicht leicht den Aufenthalt zu bewerten..
Alles in allem war das Zimmer wirklich positiv. Es war so wie auf den Fotos abgebildet - auch wenn ich es größer erwartet hätte. Was die Fotos meiner Meinung nach ein bisschen verschwiegen haben waren die wenigen Mängel. Im Grunde nur Kleinigkeiten, also nichts gravierendes. Schrank war etwas rampuniert und ging auch nicht zu schließen, bei dem Nachkästchen eines bekannten schwedischen Möbelherstellers hab ich ein, zwei Schrauben nachziehen müssen, damit die Front einem nicht entgegen fallen konnte, am Fenster fehlten paar Plastikteile und das Antennenkabel verlief lose an der Wand entland, weshalb der Empfang sehr schwankte (aber man ist ja nicht in London zum Fernsehen ;) )
Die Sauberkeit war in Ordnung. Habe erst am letzten Tag unter das Bett geschaut, also keine Ahnung ob der Staub schon da war oder durch das Lüften tagsüber kam.
Das Bad und auch das Klo war sehr ordentlich. Hierfür ein Daumen hoch! ..wenn ich auch nicht verstehe wieso ein Loch in der Verkleidung der Rohre ist - egal.
Was mir besonders den Beginn des Aufenthalts verhagelt hat, war der Telefonkontakt. Ein Mann, also eindeutig nicht die Frau auf dem Foto, ging ans Telefon und sagte mir, er könne erst in einer Stunde da sein. Gut, die eine Stunde warten war selbstverschuldet. Aber zwei Stunden waren mir dann doch bisschen too much. Als ich also das zweite mal anrief, wurde ich direkt weggedrückt. Erst nach einer, zugegeben etwas harschen, SMS rief er zurück und sagte mir ich müsse bloß klingeln.
Der Mann vorort, anscheinend wieder ein anderer (oder auch nicht?) war wirklich sehr nett und zuvorkommend! Auch er kriegt einen Daumen hoch!
War nicht zu aufdringlich, stets gut gelaunt, fragte wie der Tag war,... So wie man es sich wünscht!
Leider gab es keinen Kontakt zu den anderen in der Wohnung, bis auf ein rasches 'Hello' und ein Lächeln im Flur.
Summa summarum war der Preis mehr oder minder gerechtfertigt. Besonders die gute Lage (ein/zwei Stationen Fahrt mit der DLR und man ist an der Tower Bridge) ist sehr praktisch.
Jetzt, da ich auch weiß wie die Schlüsselübergabe vonstatten geht (somit bräuchte ich mich das nächste mal nicht unnötig ärgern), würde ich vielleicht sogar wieder dieses Zimmer buchen.
(Im Grunde etwas zwischen drei und vier Sternen, aber ich hab mal aufgerundet)
The apartment was in good condition and very clean. Besides near the center, well connected.
El apartamento estaba en buenas condiciones y muy limpio. Además de muy cerca del centro, bien comunicado.
