The room was nice, clean and matched my expectations from the pictures!
Unfortunately Inge was not there which I think affected my stay. The downside was the lack of organization, the welcoming was very awkward and they didn't know the wifi password, it just felt very messy. Overall the collective was very very dirty and a bit creepy. No probs if the people are welcoming but that was not the case.
I think this place is perfect for some though, I mostly had bad timing.
We had a short stay at the Cable Street Studios. A lively and nice place. The room was quite convenient - an all-in-one solution with shower, bed and little kitchen. Inga was also very nice and helped us where she could. We only had to wait a bit for check-in and the key to enter the studios. So, if you are a flexible person and like listening to music until midnight as we did this place ist for you!
We had a great time. Myself and my pregnant wife stayed for a couple of days and Inga was a super nice host. It was no problem that we came late, the host waited and received us warm, giving great advise on the surrounding area and sight seeing. What was brilliant is the location very close to city centre, 3 minutes walk to DLR and right beside the river thames with great river paths walks! Amazing price for city of London as we couldn't find any cheaper offer. The studio has a great charm, its old factory building so the windows are victorian so even if they do close they just doesn't lock.
Everything else was perfect, the studio is charming and we loved the outside atmosphere of the house.
We would love to return!
The apartment has a special charm and the stay was quite pleasant for a night .. From the courtyard, the music penetrates from the nebstgelegenen Jazz Club in the apartment, which I not found disturbing. The toilets are located on the floor above, which is a bit annoying and the state was not so great (no toilet paper, not clean).
Unfortunately, I had then even the bad luck that the keys did not work out. It took one and a half hours until someone else let me in, which was a bit irritating. Subsequently, I received also a key from the caretaker, who had probably overlooked an envelope at the reception, with the job myself let in .... All in all, not a problem, except that I thought at times, I had to but elsewhere quartered if none opens the door ;-)
Das Apartment hat einen besonderen Charme und der Aufenthalt war durchaus angenehm für eine Nacht.. Vom Innenhof dringt die Musik aus dem nebstgelegenen Jazzclub in die Wohnung, welches ich jedoch nicht als störend empfand. Die Toiletten sind ein Stockwerk höher gelegen, was etwas nervig ist und der Zustand war auch nicht so toll (kein Klopapier, nicht sauber).
Leider hatte ich dann auch noch das Pech, dass die Schlüsselübergabe nicht geklappt hat. Es hat anderthalb Stunden gedauert, bis jemand anderes mich reingelassen hat, was etwas irritierend war. Nachträglich habe ich dann auch einen Schlüssel vom Hauswart erhalten, der wohl einen Briefumschlag am Empfang übersehen hatte, mit dem Auftrag mich reinzulassen.... Alles in allem kein Problem, nur dass ich zeitweise dachte, ich müsste mich doch anderswo einquartieren, falls keiner die Tür aufmacht ;-)
The appartement is not for 3 people. It is in an old factory building. It is small and not clean. A lot of flies in the room. However we had a pleasant stay in the evening with a lot of young people who were making music, dancing and chilling.
We have not had the opportunity to see Inga, we were greeted by his friend. The apartment is well appointed, by against internet was not working ... The residence may seem gloomy but we were treated to an evening jazz concert. A window does not close, the sink is hard to operate but for the rest there is nothing wrong. For the price it's a bargain!
Nous n'avons pas eu l'occasion de voir Inga, nous avons été accueilli par son ami. L'appartement est bien agencé, par contre internet ne fonctionnait pas... La résidence peut paraître lugubre mais nous avons eu droit à un concert de jazz le soir. Une fenêtre ne ferme pas, le lavabo est dur à faire fonctionner mais pour le reste il n'y a rien à redire. Pour le prix c'est une bonne affaire !
a very special place. during night time much noise and funny people everywhere. but anyhow we enjoyed the place. as long as you can deal with that and you are don't expect any kind of luxery and you are looking for a cheap place in a vital area of east London we recommand that place, better for young people, not that good for familys. Inga is very helpful, speaks fluently German and give you some good advice. we came by car from Dover, that s easy. one can find a parking space nearby in the carwashing area, we payed 5 Pound a day. by bus Nr 15 to town in 20 min.
I had a great time at this apartment. It was as described (except for not mentioning that you couldn't close one of the windows) and the host was very friendly and helpful. :)
How was zuvermuten from the description already, this room is very special. Urbane, rundown loft atmosphere with some technical failures put me in a different time. Fortunately, it was reasonably warm outside, so the drafty windows that do not shut properly, a good supply of oxygen allowed. However, this is also a direct access to the acoustic music pub was connected in front of the window, from the booming music until well after midnight and peals of laughter. Earplugs should bring every guest. Unfortunately Inga was not there, their representative Peter handed me the keys quickly and was not seen. The technical refinements, such as The faucet that was no water, I have overcome with creativity, as I used the shower for washing dishes. So if you like to live in a particular old factory atmosphere in London, for this accommodation is an exciting experience. I thought it was shrill and fit. Just not a normal hotel or cleanes apartment. 2 minute walk to the bus that goes directly into a City and can be driven with the oyster tourist card for zones 1-2. Everything was great.
Wie aus der Beschreibung schon zuvermuten war, ist dieses Zimmer sehr speziell. Urbane, heruntergekommene Loftatmosphäre mit einige technischen Ausfällen versetzten mich in eine andere Zeit. Glücklicher Weise war es draußen einigermaßen warm, sodass die zugigen Fenster, die sich nicht richtig schlossen, eine gute Sauerstoffzufuhr ermöglichten. Allerdings war damit auch ein direkter akustischer Zugang zur Musikkneipe direkt vor dem Fenster verbunden, aus der bis weit nach Mitternacht Musik und schallendes Gelächter dröhnte. Ohrstöpsel sollte jeder Gast mitbringen. Inga war leider nicht da, ihre Vertretung Peter übergab mir schnell die Schlüssel und war nicht mehr gesehen. Die technischen Raffinessen, z.B. Der Wasserhahn, der kein Wasser gab, habe ich mit Kreativität überwunden, indem ich die Dusche zum Geschirrabwaschen nutzte. Also wer in einer besonderen alten Fabrikatmosphäre in London leben mag, für den ist diese Unterkunft eine spannende Erfahrung. Ich fand es schrill und passend. Eben kein normales Hotel oder cleanes Appartement. 2 Minuten zu Fuss bis zum Bus, der einen direkt in die City fährt und mit der oyster touristcard für Zone 1-2 gefahren werden kann. Alles prima.
