About this listing
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!
We had a slight misunderstanding about arrival time, but after a short wait (in a lovely park) we were welcomed by Judith and her girls. We really enjoyed chatting with Judith throughout our stay, and had some very interesting talks. The flat is right across from the above mentioned park, and near an even larger nice park. The tube is within walking distance for other areas of the city. I was very happy to be able to use the kitchen to cook a quick dinner, and Judith accommodated our dietary requests for nice breakfasts. Everything was clean and tidy, and the bathroom quite large. The bathroom is downstairs, but not far from the room. The room itself is indeed a loft area, so pay attention to the room description. If you are tall, you will be crouching as you move around the room. We are 5'8" and 6', and there was just one area at the foot of the couch bed where we could stand up straight. The description of the room/stay on Judith's page is quite accurate, so be sure to read. The windows in the loft area are quite nice for a breeze. We travel with a white noise machine, so had no problems with city/flat sounds. Our only complaint is that while the loft is listed as non-smoking, there was cigarette smoke that made its way up/into the loft area later at night, which we are very sensitive to. (possibly from the pub across the street?)
We had an amazing stay at Judith's and Tim's place .
First the place is very well located on the central subway line and the neighborhood is the hippest we've seen in London , very up and coming with great bars and pubs on brethren green road.
Then the bed is very comfortable and in the small room there are two windows you have open for fresh air which is very handy and also there a sun blockers so you can sleep without any light which is great .
Finally Tim and Judith are very present because they do not always work at the same time so breakfast is always ready and questions can be answered .
This is a great air B and B , frankly underprices for all the good value is gives being also close to central London .
Je suis venue avec ma fille de 11 ans et nous avons été extrêmement bien accueillies par tous les membres de la famille ! Nous avons passé un magnifique séjour, et avons apprécié aussi bien la chambre, la maison (et l'accès à la cuisine) que le quartier de Bethnal Green, très agréable et proche du bus et du métro. Bref, nous recommandons vivement ce logement, particulièrement adapté aux enfants.
It was a pleasure to stay in this lovely home of Judith and Tim. Everything was perfect and also my girl liked your family a lot! Would be awesome to come again someday!
Judith et TIm nous ont accuellis chaleureusement et étaient toujours prêts à nous aider. Les lieux étaient tels que montrés et nous avons beaucoup aimé le quartier.
We stayed 3 nights. Judith and her family were very helpful with us. Tim came to meet us at the station of the tube. It's a nice family with their two girls ! And when you need help they are there.
La casa de Judith es tal cual en las fotos. Muy bien ubicada a metros de la estacion de subte. Son realmente excelentes anfitriones. Nos sentimos como en casa. Super calida toda la familia. Muy recomendables! Gracias por todo!
