Overall we really enjoyed our stay at East Village. The communications before, during and after our stay were very clear and timely and booking. paying and getting deposit back were hassle-free. The actual apartment was stunning and contained everything we needed for a really relaxed stay. The extra touches such as a laptop for free internet use, and an internet phone for free UK call made it a really easy and pleasant stay. We were expecting the noise from the main roads to be more obvious from inside the apartment since the owners are very honest about the historical status of the building and how much sound-proofing they are allowed to do....but we were pleasantly surprised about how quiet it was and we really felt as though we had escaped to our own little haven once we shut the door.
The only reason this doesn't get 5 stars is the facilities for leaving your bags after you check out and before you head to the airport. The blurb you are sent makes it sound like there is a secure room/area for them to be left (and the fact they charge you if you need to leave them past a certain time) but in fact they are just left in the entrance-way behind the main door to the street. We weren't happy with this and were worried about our bags all day but had no time to sort alternative arrangements since we didn't realise this is where they would be left until we spoke to the cleaner the night before our departure.
Overall I would recommend though.
