We have a bright, cozy loft in a friendly family home in London's vibrant East End. The room has a comfortable double bed, a wardrobe and storage space. Bed linen and towels are provided and you will be sharing a big, airy bathroom.
It's a new conversion at the top of the house to which you can retreat for peace and quiet. As the ceiling is below average, taller people might have to lower their heads a bit! We are happy to welcome single people and couples. You can share the living area with us and our two small girls if you want to. Feel free to use the hair dryer, microwave and wifi, and we can wash your clothes for a little extra.
The price includes breakfast every day and we can cook you a delicious evening meal for an additional sum. You can help yourself to tea and coffee or fruit at any time.
The house is in Bethnal Green, 5 minutes from the tube and about 15 minutes from the city centre and the Olympic Park. We live in a lovely street with plenty of nice restaurants, pubs and cafés close by as well as beautiful parks and some of the best markets in London.
We love having people around and we would be delighted to welcome you!
Bethnal Green is a great neighbourhood in the East End of London. In recent years, it has become really fashionable with a variety of food and clothes markets, as well as lovely parks and also restaurants and nightclubs.
It's definitely a family friendly area but also ideal if you want to go out in the evening, with trendy Dalston and Shoreditch nearby.
Bethnal Green is on the Central Line of the underground and really well connected with the city centre: it takes just about 15 minutes to Oxford Circus.
If you want to discover London in a different way, come here, you'll love it!
The whole family was very warm and friendly, and helpful when we needed it. We adults even stayed up til 2am one night talking, but the blinds in the room were dark enough that we could easily sleep late when we wanted to. We absolutely adored the neighborhood. It was literally our favorite part of London. Quiet, beautiful, safe, convenient, diverse, friendly, just really charming. We could easily walk or take a short bus ride to Spitalfields Market, which was another of our favorite experiences. The pub across the street, The Camel, serves delicious meat pies and seemed to be popular with young couples. Down the street (Globe) is a very good, healthy restaurant (The Larder), and a couple of places with cheap, fast food (1 Chinese and 1 with a mix of things but seemed to specialize in breakfast), and at the corner of Roman Rd. is a cooperative supermarket. The room was always warm enough (it was cool spring weather at the time), a bit short for tall people (we're not), but had enough space to spread out. The kitchen facilities were easy to use, even when the family wasn't there to ask questions. Nothing but positive things to say! :-)
Really warm welcome from Judith and Tim. Lovely family to stay with, great comfy room and nice area. I would definitely stay again!
I could recommend anyone a stay with this warm and friendly family. We felt welcome and enjoyed the good pointers to help us around town. The bed was a bit too short for my 2mtr long boyfriend but otherwise comfortable. Very clean everywhere and nice breakfast.
We spent four days in this very nice place : Judith and her family were very welcoming, helpful and gave us advice about London.
The room is nice, the bed is confortable, the bathroom is clean and spacious and the breakfast is delicious.
The London underground and buses are near from the house.
Furthermore, the neighborhood is pleasant.
We would go again unhesitatingly!
Verdaderamente no podria haber pedido una mejor estadía. Toda la familia nos hizo sentir como en casa y muy comodas. La habiatacion es tal cual está descripta en el anuncio, muy acojedora! Nunca nos falto nada. Judith, Tim y las nenas fueron super amable con nosotras y siempre nos ayudaron cuando les preguntabamos sobre lugares donde ir y recomendaciones.
Judith and her family was so helpful and wonderful host family. Tim helped me and my friend carrying our luggage for us. Judith gave us some useful advices and tried to help us for our journey. And their lovely girls greeted us so friendly.
We could move easily the Tube station was so near and bus station as well. The room was clean, cozy and comfortable. I'd felt in real London in the house. If I visit London, I would choice this room again. Thanks for Judith and her family again!
