Other Things to Note
For airport / station pick up, I recommend the Green Tomato taxi company (http://(email hidden)/uk/ Tel: (phone number hidden)) - they use hyrid cars, so are much more environmentally-friendly, and bookings can be made and tracked online and via phone apps, so easy to set up from abroad. There is a short (4-line) account set up to enable you to make and track bookings. Example prices are: Heathrow airport: £67, Kings Cross / St Pancras International: £25.75, Stratford International train station: £11.00.
From Standsted airport, the National Express bus goes direct from Standsed airport and stops 2 minutes walk from the apartment (Bow Church bus stop). The buses run every half an hour and the bus journey time is 40 minutes - here is a link to their website: http://(email hidden)/wherewego/airports/stansted-airport.aspx The cost is £10 single or £15 rtn Plus £1 booking fee.
From Heathrow: Take the Piccadilly (purple) line westbound to Cockfosters. Change at Hammersmith on to the westbound District (Green) line heading towards Upminster. At Hammersmith you just have to cross the platform, no need for over or underpasses.
Heathrow to Hammersmith is 30mins, Hammersmith to Bow Road is 40 minutes. Single fare: £5.70 (or £5 if you sign up to an Oyster travel card).
Eurostar: if you are coming on the Eurostar, Stratford International (one stop before St Pancras International) is closer to the apartment. There is a direct bus (D8 from bus stop F) that runs every 15 mins to Bow Church DLR. The bus journey is 15 mins and Bow Church DLR is 2 min walk from the apartment. Alternatively, a taxi would be c. £11.
Kings Cross / St Pancras International: There is a direct tube line (Hammersmith & City - pink colour on maps) to the apartment. Take the East Bound train towards Barking and get out at Bow Road (21 mins journey time).
No real rules... just respect my home and my neighbours and no smoking inside the apartment.... Also, we are in a residential block so no parties or loud music.
Other than that, just enjoy your stay!
