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. Extremely fast wifi in the building..
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.
John & Georgina made me feel very welcome, it was basic but that's what you expect. The room was clean, kitchen & bathroom very clean as well.
A few steps to Docklands Light Railway station, Tesco Express or John's pub. A large and quiet comfortable room and a shared kitchen, bathroom and toilet. It was a really good place for a stay in London.
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.
