Reviews for this host's other properties
The apartment is in a well connected area of London, close to both train and underground stations within 10 minutes walking distance. When we arrived we had a very difficult time retrieving the keys from the safe-lockbox located outside the door - as it turned out, the owner had given us the incorrect combination. Although it was frustrating, we were able to get into contact with him via telephone right away. When we opened the lock box, our room keys weren't inside even though it was after 3, the designated check in time. We decided to just leave the bags and go to the center. After we returned later that evening, the keys were in the lock box and so we could enter into the room. The room was clean and was as advertised. The bed was what you'd expect from paying this price, and the pillows were flat (I recommend that you bring your own). Our individual room locked just fine, but we had issues locking the front door, most of the time we had to just leave it unlocked because the bolt was stuck. The bathroom was alright, the toilet and shower are in separate rooms, both rooms barely big enough to fit a person and the appliances. However everything functioned properly and was clean. My boyfriend was too tall for the shower, he's about 188cm - but there was always hot water even though there was an entire apartment full of people showering one right after the other. Also ladies, there are no outlets in the bathroom, so any hairstyling had to happen in the bedroom. The kitchen was modest, but included everything we needed on a basic level. We just bought our own breakfast, but the apartment had some cereals, coffee, and tea. There is only one small pot and one small pan in the kitchen. That's all the useful information I can give - it was a good place to stay on our budget, I don't have any major complaints - it was no Ritz Carlton, but you get what you pay for.
We got all the information we needed via mail from our host and it was easy to find the place.
Our room was o.k. for two nights.
The bathroom could have been more cleaner and the toilet seat was broken.
We found some cereals and tea in the kitchen, that was fine, but there was´t any milk to eat it with. The kitchen was clean though.
We would´t book the place again for another stay in London.
The arrival to handing over the keys was uncomplicated and very easy. Has everything worked out great. The room was clean and comfortable for my circumstances. The WLAN also works great. For a metropolitan travel the perfect accommodation.
Die Ankunft bis zur Übergabe der Schlüssel war unkompliziert und sehr einfach. Hat alles super geklappt. Das Zimmer war für meine Verhältnisse sauber und bequem. Das WLAN hat auch super funktioniert. Für eine Metropolreise die perfekte Unterkunft.
Comfortable room. Quiet area.
Among the advantages:
+ Very central, most bus stops for bus and train can be reached in 5-15 minutes on foot
+ Very cheap
+ Cleanliness is good (not piccobello but already fits)
+ Tesco (supermarket) in less walking minutes
+ 5-minute walk away from Brick Lane
Now the cons:
- Breakfast consists of coffee, tea and cornflakes; but lack the milk! The you have to buy yourself, luckily the nearest supermarket is not far away
- Apartment is older, you can see that unfortunately (cracks in the walls, old windows and doors, older furniture
- Very noisy
Conclusion: ideal for a short stay in London, if you value a central location.
Zu den Vorteilen:
+ sehr zentral gelegen, die meisten Haltestellen für Bus und Bahn sind in 5-15 Min zu Fuß erreichbar
+ sehr günstig
+ Sauberkeit ist gut (nicht piccobello, aber passt schon)
+ Tesco (Supermarkt) in weniger Gehminuten erreichbar
+ 5 Gehminuten von Brick Lane entfernt
Nun die Nachteile:
- Frühstück besteht aus Kaffee, Tee und Cornflakes; jedoch fehlt die Milch! Die muss man sich selbst kaufen, zum Glück ist der nächste Supermarkt nicht weit entfernt
- Apartment ist schon älter, das sieht man leider (Risse in den Wänden, alte Fenster und Türen, ältere Möbel
- sehr hellhörig
Fazit: für einen kurzen Aufenthalt in London optimal, wenn man Wert auf eine zentrale Lage legt.
We had a good time! The house is very neat and clean. The room is also quite newly decorated and the bed is comfortable. The location is great!
Wir hatten eine gute Zeit! Das Haus ist sehr ordentlich und sauber. Das Zimmer ist auch recht neu eingerichtet und das Bett ist bequem. Die Lage ist top!
We were in April for 4 days as a guest in the Hereford Road - an ideal location right in the vibrant Shoreditch. Small, but perfectly adequate; walk we could also our Easybus in the Old Street reach (by 4 clock at night, -)) We'll be back !! And if could join a device to empty package the hair dryer again, it would be perfect. Also checking in and out was hassle .... thumbs up !!!
wir waren im April für 4 Tage zu Gast in der Hereford Road - eine ideale Location mitten im lebendigen Shoreditch. Klein, aber völlig ausreichend; zu Fuß konnten wir auch unseren Easybus in der Old Street erreichen (nachts um 4 Uhr ,-)) Wir kommen bestimmt wieder!! Und wenn sich zur leeren Verpackung des Föns wieder ein Gerät gesellen könnte, wäre es perfekt. Auch das Ein- und Auschecken war völlig problemlos ....Daumen hoch!!!
apartment very well located, 5mins and 10mins from the bus to the subway (overground), all kitchen nécessaiire, we sleep very well there, it is quiet at night. No worries for the keys. I recommend
appartement très bien situé, à 5mns du bus et 10mns du métro (overground), tout le nécessaiire de cuisine, on y dort très bien, c'est calme la nuit. Aucun soucis pour la remise des clés. Je recommande
The room is well located near the subway station Aldgate East, immediate environment is relatively quiet, you can provide good in the nahgelegenen shops. The room itself is big enough and clean, the shower was however for us not usable, because the temperature of the water could not be regulated and at about 40 degrees was stuck ... the shared bathroom was tolerable. The kitchen, however, was equipped really well and with everything you need and clean.
Das Zimmer ist gut gelegen in der Nähe der U-Bahn Station Aldgate East, die direkte Umgebung ist relativ ruhig, man kann sich gut in den nahgelegenen Läden versorgen. Das Zimmer selbst ist ausreichend groß und sauber, die Dusche war allerdings für uns nicht nutzbar, da die Temperatur des Wassers sich nicht regeln ließ und bei über 40 Grad festhing...das Gemeinschaftsbadezimmer war tolerabel. Die Küche hingegen war wirklich gut und mit allem Nötigen ausgestattet und auch sauber.
We had a great stay in London.
The location is great for a city break.
Beds were very comfortable. Bathroom and kitchen were clean.
Wir hatten einen tollen Aufenthalt in London.
Die Lage ist klasse für einen Städtetrip.
Betten waren sehr bequem. Bad und Küche waren auch sauber.
