For the price it's ok-not special. And the location was pretty close to the city center and easy to find!
Maria was waiting for us-which was good cause we arrived around 1 am.
All in all a good deal for this price.
We only met Maria, from the first moment she was very nice, kind and really helpful. She let us checked out little bit later because we had flight early in the morning, which truly helped us . The room and the rest of the apartment was clean and warm. Location five minutes walk to the subway station and really close to Shoreditch where are some fine restaurants and pubs ( Thank for the tip Maria :) ). Highly recommended !
Mostly ok. Good location. Apartment is not great but fine. I suggest to buy a new mattress from a small part of the proceedings.
Absolut weiterzuempfehlen. Maria hat uns empfangen und war sehr nett und hilfsbereit. Das Zimmer war top. Gute Lage, Essen&Trinken rundherum. Gerne wieder :)
Maria looks after Oliver's properties (it turns out he has two flats) and was really helpful. She responds really quickly to any questions and the initial booking enquiry.
It just so happened that a problem with the plumbing meant we couldn't stay in the room we'd booked but Maria sorted out another room close by so all was good.
I did not enjoy my stay at this grim high rise flat.
It was extremely noisy as one of 2 other rooms was rented out to some idiots having a party. In addition the flat is located close to an accident and emergency hospital and sirens scream regularly. Needless to say I got little sleep!
It was quite close to the metro station, and nearby there are some shops and bars. Maria - the property manager was really kind, helpful and I could even leave my luggage after checking out.
Each room has its locker and it´s warm. My bed was really UNCOMFORTABLE (the mattress doesn´t souldn´t bee use more), and the ROOM WAS DUSTY and had a strange SMELL... Bedding was fresh, toilet has been cleaned all days.
BATHROOM NEEDS to be washed, because for sure it wasn´t for a longer time...
