You will want for nothing if you stay here - there is space to unwind after a day of sight-seeing, a fabulous kitchen if you want to cook for yourself, a communal garden overlooking the Limehouse Cut canal if you want a picnic; and beds are excellent quality so you're bound to get a good nights sleep!

The flat will very easily accomodate 8 people, without feeling you're on top of each other or cramped. It is perfect for a business trip, a family or a group of friends.

We stayed at Jennifer's for 4 nights, and renting this appartment was perfect for our group! Jennifer's husband picked us up at the underground station so we would not have to try to find it on our own after a 12 hours travel. It is a really nice and cozy appartment and we felt like home right away. Everything was organized to give us the best stay. We got good information before we went. The street and the building was quiet. We did not miss anything, and we had a really great time! Thanks to Jennifer and her family for haveing us!
Thanks for a great stay we really enjoyed your hospitality and loved your place and assistance. Good access to conference and ideal with people who were travelling so all in all highly recommend staying.
The appartment was very clean, nice and bigger than I expected. Good beds, nice bathroom, actually all very nice. Very friendly owners. Area is well located, although the area itself is not the most interesting one. I would book this place again and definetily recommend it for a stay with a group.
Thanks Jennifer and Greg for letting us stay in your lovely apartment. It worked perfectly for our party of six people.
Walking distans to restaurants and shopping in Canary Wharf and if you like to go down town London for shopping just catch the DLR to Bank and change to the Underground.
The hosts was really friendly and most accommodating.
We would love to come back!
Fantastic place and an excellent first AirBnB experience. Jennifer and her husband made us all feel very welcome in their lovely home. More than spacious for 5 people relaxing or working, beautifully clean and well maintained. All the facilities you could need and an amazing kitchen space. They very kindly left us bread/milk and breakfast things and a heap of details about the local area and where to get food from etc -this all showed they would go the extra mile to make us feel welcome. We were visiting for a conference at Excel and this was perfectly placed and an easy walk to the DLR. Great communication throughout and all our questions answered. Highly recommended. Thank you Jen and Greg :)
We couldn't have had a nicer experience - from the beginning Jennifer was helpful and responded to all our questions promptly. Greg, who welcomed us, was so nice and made us feel immediately at home, even letting our grandson play with the children's toys. The flat is attractive and well equipped with everything in an obvious place, and a cupboard and fridge full of goodies for delicious breakfasts which we ate while looking at Canary Wharf from the window. In a nutshell: - comfy beds, comfy sofas, good location, spotless and spacious! Thank you
A lovely flat, well suited for a large group to sleep and socialise. In close proximity to the Excel Centre.
The owner was impressively friendly and helpful, leaving various useful items and food for our use. There wasn't a huge amount of storage in many of the rooms, but for a few nights stay you should have no problems.
Looking forward to stay again.
We are Londoners through and through and feel passionate about our wonderful home city!
