About this listing
Located in the heart of Poplar in London's East End this local public house, run by John and Georgina is perfect for cheap accommodation and is local to all amenities.
You can walk to Canary Wharf and Tower Bridge in about 5 mins, and from All Saints station on the Docklands Light Railway (DLR) it is just a few stops to Stratford for the Olympic Games.
Many other central London tourist attractions are easily accessible too, and we are also just a few stops on the DLR from London City Airport.
The large flat is above a working pub. The flat is very basic. It has 3 bedrooms and can sleep 10 in total. Two bedrooms have a double bed and two singles and one bedroom has a double bed.
You will have your own private room, furnished with a double bed and two single beds. Sheets and towels are supplied for your convenience.
There is a communal lounge with Sky TV.
The kitchen is an industrial kitchen so it is very basic but has everything you need: oven, fridge, microwave etc.
You have access to a shared bathroom and separate toilet.
NOTE: You have the option to rent out the whole apartment, or you can choose to rent out just one room. Please see my other listings on the lower right hand side of the page.
The hosts were very nice and went out of their way to help us accommodate an extra person. The location is good, a short walk to Poplar train station, from which you can access the rest of London easily. The room itself was very clean and comfortable, the shared areas are not quite as nice but functional. Quite quiet for a place above a pub, though there is the smell of alcohol in the stairways. Good for a short stay.
Just exactly as described. A large, comfortable room with shared bath and shared kitchen. A good distance from London main attractions but served excellently by both regular bus service and Docklands Light Rail. John was a great host, even giving driving directions to our cab via mobile phone. Having a pub downstairs is generally a great idea.
Staying at John's was a positive experience. The room was spacious, quiet and had free wifi. We never used the kitchen but it seemed well-equipped. Communications with John worked very smoothly.
Affordable room, rather big for London. John and his staff was helpful and nice. Our room faced the street and the traffic woke is quite early. All in all a good stay for the money.
The room was cozy and prepared as discussed, the common rooms as tidy as expected from shared rooms, and the neighbourhood quiet and friendly. The public transportation (DLR line) is easily accessible, and also the bus (15) from the end of the street goes straight to the City.
Der erste Kontakt mit John war unkompliziert: obwohl wir etwas zu früh waren wartete er schon auf uns! Das Zimmer und die Wohnung entsprechen genau der Beschreibung und die Wohnung liegt ziemlich günstig zwischen Poplar und All Saints, perfekt also wenn man schnell ins Zentrum will! Für den Preis kann man die Wohnung nur empfehlen! Gerne wieder
Very pleasant stay, rooms are very large with a nice view on Canary Wharf. Because the rooms are on the second floor, there is no noise from the bar.
