Pretty easy going common sense rules. We have neighbors so acting responsibly is important.
Smoking not allowed unfortunately - but there's a balcony so not too difficult.
I ask that you leave the house in the same state as when you arrived. If there's any problems just let me know.
I stayed in Rene's flat for six weeks. He's a very accommodating host and checked with me frequently to make sure everything was going well. The flat is really well situated for site seeing, less than ten minutes walk to the Central Line (which cuts right through the heart of London). Ten minutes the other way and you hit the Overground line. The pictures you see are spot on. The best thing about the flat is that it's really spacious and modern compared to what you might find in other areas of the city. It's also pretty quiet. You do get some street noise, and some weekend chatter outside, but considering how much is nearby - it's really not bad. And you never hear the neighbors above or below or next door. For me a slight negative was that some times I felt like I didn't quite have everything I wished to work with in the kitchen. You've got the basics, but no microwave and limited pots and pans or cutting tools - but unless you plan on doing a lot of cooking or staying for a long while, it's no big deal. The immediate area is a surprise with a lot of ethnic Bangledeshi stores. I loved having a couple of grocery stores just steps from the front door around the corner. Also you're really close to Brick Lane and a handful of great pubs. Also the BoxPark Pop-up Mall at the Shoreditch High Street Station - good food and fun, especially on weekends. To sum up, Rene's flat is comfortable and a great option to explore the city.
Renes flat has everything you can need to be confortable, its very good located in a cool and trendy area in east london.
I was with my baby for one and half month and we could enjoyed all facilities: wifi, fridge, whasing machine, spacious in the living room, the bath.
As we were in winter we found the flat quite warm which for us was good.
Sometimes the heating turns very hot but rene could help us to cool it down .
In the night time I can hear a litle bit of noise in the room but i could sleep well anyway. The matress and the bed size its just so good that can keep you in there.
I can recomend this flat because has spacious its good located and has everythjng that you can need also comunucation with rene was quite easy and he was helpful with us.
My fiancé and I had a great stay at Rene's apartment. It was comfortable and really convenient to get into town, especially the East.
Good neighbourhood to base yourself in with two mini supermarkets and lots of local corner shops, a ten minute walk to Liverpool St.
Rene was a great host and with the one or two minor queries we had, called and talked us through solutions straight away. Thanks Rene.
Accommodation in Reneś flat was very nice. Rene as host was very helpful and kind. I can really recommend it.
Despite checking-in problems, which were caused be previous tenants, we had a nice stay at Renes place. Rene took care of mentioned problems and refunded us for the inconvenience. Very good location in East London, 5min walk from Brick Lane.
Spacious apartment, bed with good mattress.
Rene's communication was great and the flat was what I expected from the listing price. It is basic but great if you have a hectic schedule and simply need somewhere to crash and shower. Location wise it was exactly what I was after, minutes from brick lane, liverpool st, bethnal green tube and the pubs on bethnal green road.
I had a good time to stay at Rene's apartment , it's cozy , clean and great location which is 5mins walk to the Bethnal Green Tube station ,there is a Tesco which is open 24 hours during the week days , just 3 mins away from the apartment . There are many choices for food ,pubs surround . There is a small park downstairs cross the street , you could jog or have a walk there in the morning . I like the bed , it's so soft and comfortable . The kitchen is nice and clean except there is no toaster . Only one thing i think Rene should sort out the lock , every time i have to spend a long time to get in with the key . By the way , Rene's friend Griff is really nice and patient who helped me to find the apartment and carried the my luggage to the apartment .Thank you Griff and thank you Rene for letting me stay there for a week . I will definitely come back to stay there in the future .

About the Host, Rene
I run a small-ish music based company, and travel a lot as a result. I'm mostly traveling between New York and London, so when I do get the rare holiday time off I prefer to not go anywhere.
I'm sure you'll enjoy crashing at my place
