Large double bedroom in Bow - the room is ideally situated with the No.8 bus outside the door going directly to Shoreditch High Street, Bethnal Green, and Liverpool Street and Oxford Circus.
As the photos show the flat is basically furnished, especially the kitchen, so if you are a gourmet queen or someone who particularly likes to cook, this flat is perhaps not for you. The kitchen has fairly basic amenities only, a oven, cooktop (no microwave) and a washing machine.
Victoria Park is right next door, and the Bethnal Green and Hackney markets are a short walk away. There is lots going on in the Park on weekends - the perfect place to relax and get some spring sunshine.
Shoredtich, Brick Lane, Cambridge Heath and Bethnal Green are all closeby on weekends for food and nightlife.
Most people think that this apartment is a really good base for someone wanting to get settled quickly in London.
Janine is an amazing host. She definitely makes you feel like you're at home!
Her penthouse is located next to the bus stop, which will take you to the underground station within 10 minutes. Also, as she stays in one of the highest floors in her building, there are no bugs or flies at all. Excellent :)
The kitchen is simple, but you can definitely do all the cookings you want. I even got to use a little fridge all for myself!
Stayed there for 3 weeks, and definitely didnt want to leave at all!
Thank you, Janine, I really had an amazing time in London :)
I stayed at Janine's for about ten days. The room was simple yet large and had lots of storing spaces plus a breathtaking view of the Canary Wharf high-rises as the flat is on the 14th floor. There's a plain living room with a couch, a small desk and a balcony with amazing views, and a large kitchen. Janine is hardly ever there as she works long hours, but when she is, she's a nice discrete and quiet person. (Thanks Janine). The place is practically beside the lovely Victoria Park and a stones throw away from the Roman Road Market with lots of stores open late. Bus stop is at the doorstep with good east London connections and a direct bus to Oxford Circus. Very convenient.
Janine was a great host - very welcoming and helpful! The area might take some getting used to if you're new to London, but it works as a good base from which to explore London, as it has easily accessible transport links.
Janine was an amazing host! The room is big and the whole apartment has really nice views!
Good for a base to explore the city, with a comfortable room and plenty of storage. However, this room is suited to shorter stays, as it's no frills accommodation, with very basic living room and kitchen. It's a twenty minute walk to the tube but has sufficient bus access. Janine was very helpful, and responded promptly to all queries.
The location of this apartment is superb with excellent bus links and nearby underground. I felt very safe in the area no matter what time of day or night I travelled around. Nearby Victoria Park is lovely and Roman Road Market is so handy for local shopping and bargains!
The apartment is very roomy with fabby views of Olympic Park and Canary Wharf.
Janine is just lovely to get to know though we hardly saw each other with our shift patterns.
I would definitely book this room again if I had business in London.
