Stratford/Forest Gate area is a classic example of East London marked by incredible mixture of cultures, races, traditions. It is the heart of Olympic Games in the nearest past.
This area exceptionally well connected with city centre literally 7 minutes away from Liverpool Street by train.
This area is also very convenient for travellers from/to STANSTED AIRPORT thus many of the coaches go to London through STRATFROD. However other airports are also fine due to well-developed underground, train and bus connections in the city.
All TRAVEL CARDS and OYSTER CARDS are accepted. What you need is an Oyster card with One Day Travel Card Zone 1-3 cost approximately £5.70 per day. London is an expensive town so be prepared to spend.
Here is the fastest way to the house: take a Central Line underground train to Stratford. It will arrive at STRATFORD’S PLATFORM 6. The other side of it is PLATFORM 8. From PLATFORM 8 take a train to SHENFIELD going through FOREST GATE. FOREST GATE is the second stop 2 minutes away from Stratford. Trains come every 7 minutes. From FOREST GATE STATION the house is within walking distance. Print of the map with the house address previously and take the map with you. Another seven minutes’ walk and you are home.
As a rule guests use standard underground map to travel around the London. This map shows major underground lines and stations only. However Londoners more commonly use an extended underground/train map that gives them more possibilities and flexibility when traveling around the city. Here is the link to the extended the UNDERGROUND AND TRAIN MAP OF LONDON:
On the map the Forest Gate station corresponds to F/2 location next to Stratford. It is in Travel Zone 3 and again all major Travel Cards and Oysters are accepted meaning you don't need to buy any additional tickets. We are 7 mins 29 secs away from Forest Gate station by walk. Train from the Forest Gate station will bring you to Liverpool Street station in 7 minutes.
Liverpool Street is a perfect spot to start exploring London. Liverpool Street is in the heart of London's business City- with its panoramic views, dramatic St. Paul Cathedral, well known Tower Bridge, Tower of London and River Thames itself. It is highly recommend for every tourist to use the Liverpool Street / Forest Gate route for his/her trips thus it will save lots of time, energy and frustration. To remind you again: WE ARE 7 MINUTES AWAY FROM the LIVERPOOL STREET STATION BY TRAIN.
Please use this tip to help yourself make your trip to London as pleasant as possible :-)
The place was clean, simple but no bad surprises. Wifi is ok. It's a really good deal if you don't want to spend too much money for just few nights in London.
City can be reached very easily, i was afraid to waste my time in transport but it's not that far, we used overground + tube.
It's quiet, birds wakes you up and there is a lot of shops and some place to eat in the neighborhood, but nothing else to do here.
We did not meet Ruslans but he gave me all the information I needed.
This room is really nice and clean, just like the house. We really enjoyed our staying there. We didn´t meet Ruslans, but he gave me all the instructions and informations I needed. I can not say anything bad. I really recomend this for staying in London. The area was great,too. Very near to centre of London.
One more time, thank you Ruslans=)
we sleep very well at ruslans very good public traffic distance wonderfull shops around
Desent room with good wifi connection. On a walking distance from Forest Gate rail station.
Great host, thanks for the hospitality Ruslans.
Ruslans was very nice. The apartment was lovely - however the shower was a little squishy and the light wasn't working on our last day which was a little difficult - no fault of Ruslans though!
Our stay was very comfortable. We rarely saw Ruslans but there were a lot of other house guests there which made the experience a very sociable one.
I turned up at ruslans a day early as like an idiot I got my dates wrong, ruslan was an absolute gentleman, he cleaned a room for me and the panic was over. All at no extra charge.
The house is clean and tidy, the bathroom was being updated when i stayed which means it'll be even better in the near future.
Location is good with direst gate station a 5 minute walk away, 2 stops to Stratford and there you have your springboard into anywhere in London, very easy... Or just stay at Westfield (shoppers paradise)
All in all for the price and location you will be searching a long time trying to get better.
Thank you regards john
Detailed instructions provided by hoist made our way to house ease as possible. Convenient location with easy access to public transport. Good value for money.
Nothing negative to say. Room was clean and as described, as was the kitchen. Area was safe, alot of families from what I could see, easily accessible by public transport. Ruslan was understanding when i arrived a bit before check in after a 22 hour flight and waiting around the city for a few hours. perfect room for the budget traveller.
better than a hostel.
Lovely room, great value for money ! will definitely be staying here again. I didn't actually meet Ruslan but he was quick to respond to all my queries and was very friendly.
Very neat and clean room with comfortable bed. Close to the train station and large number of close amenities. Very cooperative and helpful owner. All for a very reasonable price. Will surely go back there whenever needed. Recommended to others too.
