The Neighborhood

We live in a new development on the first floor with open plan living space, two bedrooms (one will be yours), two bathrooms (one will be yours), a fully fitted kitchen to which you’ll have total access and a balcony overlooking the canal. We have a privileged view of Canary Wharf, the Regent’s canal and that of the communal gardens. We’re located in Stepney, a multicultural part of London that has seen a lot of regeneration thanks to its proximity to the Olympic site.

Getting around

We are a three minute walk away from Mile End Park and a 10-minute walk from the nearest Tube station, offering great transport links on the Central, Hammersmith & City and the District lines.

Overall Guest Satisfaction

Check In
  • Our first trip with airbnb was a great success. This because Bernard and Michael were such lovely, warm and helpfull hosts and their appartment and room were lovely, clean, warm, nicely decorated, all together: awesome!
    Not to forget their balcony. If you are as lucky as us and find yourself in a very sunny London, make sure to start your day with breakfast and coffee at their lovely sunny balcony with overwhelming view!

    The neighbourhood - right next to a park being beautiful during the day - also felt safe at night. Walking through the neighbourhood being two girls after a night out was no problem.

    Already recommended their place to my friends, now also on airbnb.

    Bernard thank you for your warm welcome, care, help and tips.
    Bernard and Michael hope to see you when you come to Amsterdam!

  • Bernard et Michael sont de merveilleux hôtes, prennent soin de leurs invités, proposent un petit déjeuné local et excellent. Ils sont très à l'écoute et cherchent à rendre le séjour le plus magique possible en nous proposant des visites adaptées à nos demandes. Nous recommandant fortement cette adresse.

    January 2014
  • Haben uns sehr wohl gefühlt bei Bernard und Michael.
    Das Zimmer ist top! Sehr sauber und total ruhig gelegen am Kanal.
    Man konnte sogar mit offenem Fenster schlafen- und das mittten in London.
    Bernard ist sehr hilfsbereit, sucht einem die besten Verbindungen raus, versorgt einen mit Stadtplänen und hat gute insider tipps.

    Wir waren sehr zufrieden!

    November 2013
  • We had a very pleasant stay! We felt very welcome and the room had everything we need. The best thing was problably breakfast on sunday on the balcony between the flowers and the plants!

    When we arrived Bernard saw us coming and called us in by calling our name from his appartment/balcony so we didn't have to look any furher. That was very nice.

    We strongly reccommend this room also because it's in a nice neighbourhood and really only 15 min. to city centre!

    W'll be back!

  • So quiet we have never slept in London. Top apartment in idyllic surroundings with excellent hosts. Bernard is very attentive and helpful and always good to have a good gas. This property is absolutely recommendable. We will come back. Thank you.

    September 2013
  • Bernard & Michael are the most gracious, friendly and caring hosts you could wish for. With a beautiful & peaceful apartment and room, it is also the perfect area to stay while in London - so many fantastic area's near by with restaurants, bars, parks etc.

    Do yourself a favour and stop looking for accommodation and stay with Bernard & Michael !

    September 2013
  • Bernard and Michael are wonderful hosts. The room and facilities are superb. This was our second BnB experience and doubt we will find better.

    There is no stress due to Bernard's fabulous hosting skills. Surprises are completely avoided due to his meticulous professionalism. What is listed is what you get... and more. The overall cleanliness was excellent as was the location.

    Nicely located in an average neighborhood you get to safely experience the "real" London. Walking through the local streets and parks at night, due to our extensive late night explorations, wasn't a concern. And the local restaurants Bernard recommended were great.

    The best comment we can provide is that we would definitely ask to stay with Bernard and Michael again. They are both simply "good" people and top class hosts. We hope they consider us as their new Canadian friends.

    September 2013
  • Beautiful Bernard and Michael-the perfect hosts! In their fab apartment on the canal I was welcomed with warmth (which I needed after having severe jetlag, lol!!) My room was lovely-filled with books and art and a view of the canal from the bedroom window...I even saw a fish swim by in the first 5 mins of being there!!!! :D Super clean bathroom WITH bath (yay!!!) Secure flat, perfect temperature (as it was hot and humid while I was there) fab kitchen. Plenty of food and drink supplied too, which was super sweet!
    Clean, comfortable, friendly, helpful, stylish...fabulous all round!!!
    I love these boys and hope to go see them again real soon...but for longer.....You should too!!!! :D

    July 2013
  • We enjoyed staying at Bernard and Michael's apartment. The room and bathroom were comfortable, clean, and felt private. They were spot on in suggesting things for us to do and places to go. The apartment is in a pretty residential area outside the city center, but it was easy to take the underground to wherever we wished. Overall, they were wonderful and caring hosts!

    July 2013
  • Bernard and Michael are synonymous of hospitality and kindness. Very seldom Daniela and me had a so perfect hosts. Be confident: the best accomodation in London is at their home near Mile End Park.
    We hope to see both of you in our next future.

    And now a little Ad in our language.
