“very good flat with perfect landlord”
Reviewed 12 September 2013 for a stay in September 2013

We stayed in this flat for a week at the beginning of September 2013. The flat is large enough for two, clean, with the extras of a computer and printer. The kitchen is well equipped, it even has a hand blender, a liquidiser and paper shredder! During our stay the store cupboard had a very good supply of items ready to help with our cooking (salt&pepper;, oil, tea, coffee, sugar, lots of spices, soy sauce, etcetera).
It is on the third floor, with a lift.
The location towards transport is excellent: the aldgate East tube (with two lines: Hammersmith & City and the District Line, and only one stop from Tower Hill and Liverpool Street) is about one (1!) minute away, as well as bus 15, 25, 67, 115, 135, 205 (going to Paddington via St. Pancras) and 254.
Brick Lane with its renowned restaurants and its Sunday market is just a stone's throw away.
There are plenty of shops, as well as a Tesco Metro and Tesco Express and Bangla City (a large Bangladeshi supermarket) nearby.
As for the owner, Carlos is the friendliest guy you'll ever come across, very helpful and trustworthy.
We can definitely recommend this place!

“Great location, good price.”
Reviewed 11 August 2013 for a stay in July 2013

We stayed for one week in July and found the location to be great, short walk to East aldgate train station, supermarkets, cafes, restaurants all just around the corner. There is good security at the apartment with an electric gate and at no time did we feel unsafe in the neighbourhood, which in fact is culturally very diverse and had some great Bangladeshi and Indian restaurants nearby. It was great to have the extra space offered by the apartment with a comfortable bed, relaxing lounge room, TV, washing machine dryer and very well equipped kitchen should you be in the mood to cook. Much better value than a hotel room! Carlos was very helpful, meeting us at the apartment and going over everything we might need to know. It was a bit of a heat wave by British standards (over 30 degrees) so Carlos also provided fans so that it was easy to ventilate the rooms of an evening. We did not find it that noisy at all compared to most big cities, and you are not on a main street so there's no traffic noise at night. For the convenience and the price I would recommend it to anyone for a a week in London.

“An ideal base for a London holiday, well appointed and welcoming.”

Carlos, the owner of the flat, was charming, welcoming and very helpful, a delightful host. His apartment is small but has everything that is needed for a comfortable stay. It is in a gated block, so we felt completely secure, and the other residents were friendly and helpful. It's close proximity to Aldgate East tube was excellent, and there are food shops and many restaurants very nearby. I would not hesitate to book Carlos' apartment any time I wanted a base in London.

Liked best: Well equipped, convenient location, secure, the owner's helpfulness.
Liked least: Windows not opening wider, so rather warm in heatwave, though fans were provided.
