About this listing
Note: I have refurbished the whole apartment in 2015. I had not so good feedback back in 2013 while I was travelling so I decided to take out the listing from airbnb at that time. Now I have re-listed the room and I guarantee you that your experience will be positive because the apartment is literally brand new again and super clean.
Description: A nice double room located in Plaistow, only 5 minutes walk from Canning Town tube station and 5 mins walk from Plaistow tube station. You can also reach Stratford, the home of 2012 Olympic games and of Europe's biggest shopping centre - The Stratford City Westfield, within a 5 minutes bus ride.
While staying over you will have access to a brand new orthopaedic mattress and you also be able to use our free WIFI connection. You are welcome to use the kitchen to prepare your meals. There's free parking outside the house so you'll be fine even if your coming to London by car (and we're outside the congestion charge zone).
Our flat is super clean and organised so you wont be disappointed (I know there are two recent negative feedbacks about the cleanliness but i was away from the country and my brother was in charge of the place, but i guarantee you that you won't find the toilet and bathroom to be dirty, i live here, i like my place clean)
There's no breakfast included but you can find cafes and shops a short walk away.
Please remember this: When you use the toilet, clean after yourself. Its not my job to clean the toilet sink after you use it (I am just saying this because i had few guests doing this).
Sometimes the house gets really hot and I need to turn off the heater. If the water is not hot and you need hot water, you need to let me know that there is not hot water, I don't care if it is 3am in the morning, I am ok in waking up and turning on the hot water.
Check-in is usually after 6pm and before midnight - if you must arrive earlier let me know and we may be able to sort out something.
Please get in touch if you have any questions or need any extra info.
GUEST MUST CLEAN HIS / HER ROOM ON DEPARTURE & KINDLY WASH THE BEDDING IN THE WASHING MACHINE
It was the worst location ever in my life!
Apartment was dirty, there was an open garbage bin on the kitchen, which gived horrible smell, from the fridge, wardrobe and toilet also was a horrible smell.
The bed was broken, when i pulled out the materas to see, why the bed is falling to one side of the floor, i saw the dirty towel underneath the bed.
There was no constant hot water, i had to ask everytime to switch it on.
Sometimes, when the owner was not at home, i was not able to take a shower, and went to bed dirty...
The area is full of strange people, like under the drugs or just homeless, and they looked dangerous.
I didn't go out in the evening, because was afraid to go home in the night.
I have stayed in Walter's place for 1 week. Small room for good price. If you plan a short trip you can use it. Bathroom and toilets are seperate and small but clean.
It's 15 mins walking distance to Plaistow station which you can access all tubes easily. Also you can always reach Walter if you have any requires.
The room is small and replace the small prices. For a cheap way to sleep in london.
I've spent 7 days in London and has been a very good week.
Walter is a nice guy and nice to talk with him , the room is essential but you pay for what you have , the bed and wifi is OK
the connection with Central London is very good and easy , just 10 minutes walk to Plaistow station and 15 minutes by train to Liverpool street.
Finally i can say is a good deal for a short stay in London ...
I made the booking for my daughter, who stayed at Walter's for 4 nights.
She found the room, clean and the host helpful. Although there was sometimes a shortage of hot water in the morning, she found this was easily resolved by the host once she mentioned it.
Though Walter's place is very close to a bus stop, it is about 30 mins walk from the nearest tube station and this should be mentioned in the listing as I booked it on the basis that it was described as being very close to the nearest tube station.
Camera molto molto sporca, bagno molto piccolo, coperte sporche, lavatrice non funzionante del tutto, e non ci sta un tavolo per mangiare. polvere ovunque. Appena sono arrivato ho dovuto comprare detersivo e sgrassatore, e e ho dovuto portare a lavare le coperte. Non consiglierei mai di andare a nessuno, se si è puliti.
You get what you pay for. The wallpaper was peeling away, the carpet is pretty worn, and the walls are kinda thin. Also, the nearest station is a 15 minute walk away. That said, for the price it's still a bargain.
