The apartment was smaller than expected and quite cold. The walls were very thin and it was quite noisy at night. It was very close to the tube though and a convenient location to see all the London sights! Great place if you are a sound sleeper and not wanting to spend too much time in the room.
Je n'ai pas eu le plaisir de rencontrer Vincent et Alice. Nous avons eu comme contacts des employés du Coffee Shop dans lequel nous sommes allé chercher les clés. On sent qu'ils sont bien rodés dans leur business. On est à l'abris des surprises.
Quartier très animé, style hipster rempli de boutiques vintage et de restos indiens qui pullulent avec leurs rabatteurs. C'est un peu lourd, mais finalement, avec du recul, c'est amusant. On peut même appréciés tous leurs awards affichés sur leurs devantures. Vous verrez 2 masterchefs 2014, des masterchefs 2015, plusieurs meilleurs indiens de Bricklane ... à mourir de rire.
Concernant le logement. Il est propre, équipé sommairement. Les draps et les serviettes fournis et propres. La télé, le wifi ... que demander de plus. C'est largement suffisant pour un petit séjour sympa. Par contre, le double vitrage, il faut oublier. L'animation de la rue et l'isolation font que même au lit, on a l'impression de participer à l'activité de la rue. Des talons qui marchent sur le trottoir donnent l'impression qu'une déesse marche dans la pièce d'à côté. Cependant, ça ne nous a pas empêchés de dormir. Les journées et les pubs sont tellement éreintants que nous nous endormions en 15 minutes top chrono malgré les klaxons et autres bruits festifs.
Quartier très agréable, bien situé et desservi. Hôtes très réactifs à nos demandes et accueillants.
Appartement conforme, propre, petit mais suffisant. Seul petit bémol appartement prévu pour 6, or l'équipement en couverts notamment, ou sièges est insuffisant.
Je recommande tout de même ce logement.
Great apartment in Brick Lane. Just perfect for me for work. Check in was super easy and apartment has everything you could need. Plus it is FANTASTIC value for the area. Dont look anywhere else.
Posto in posizione centralissima, per cui rumore presente ma accettabile. E' pulito, semplice, funzionale. Se ci andate in più di 2 persone portatevi le lenzuola perché i 2 divani letto non ne sono provvisti.
This apartment is in a great location. There's heaps happening in brick lane and it's so easy to get trains from here. It was a comfortable place to stay and very good value for the price. Thanks for having us Vincent and Alice!
