Good apartment to use as a base to explore London. Space was good for a family of 5 and the location was excellent. Aldgate East tube station is very close, Liverpool St Station was an enjoyable 15 minute walk. There is a Tesco downstairs for food supplies.
Hilmi was very responsive during the booking process and we really appreciated his flexibility to let us drop off our luggage at the apartment early while it was still being cleaned so that we could go explore London. We did have a problem with the toilet overnight on Day 1 which was dealt with promptly by the time we got home on Day 2.
The furnishings in the apartment are very basic so this isn't a place for hanging out for long periods - however, you are in London so frankly you should be hanging out elsewhere in waking hours.
Whilst the location is geographically excellent, the immediate area around the apartment is quite seedy with a fair share of assorted drunks and beggars in the evening. Having said that, even with our young children in tow, we never felt threatened.
The apartment is on a busy street so be prepared for some street noise. It never bothered us because we were simply too tired after a day of sightseeing.
Overall in terms of value for money, well recommended.
Nous avons très bien été reçu par Utku, Hilmi n'ayant pas pu être présent. Nous avons pu obtenir toutes les informations que nous avions besoin, encore merci.
Concernant l'appartement, la description correspond vraiment à la description, le quartier (restaurants, bar, supermarchés, ...) est sympas mais un peu bruyant.
Concernant la localisation de l'appartement, c'est parfait! Les bus sont à 1 minute à pied et permet d'atteindre les principales zones de Londres. Et les Métros sont à 15 minutes à pied environs.
En bref un bon voyage grâce à notre hôte Hilmi!
Hilmi (and his associates) were very professional and generally responsive to our requests and questions, even when we accidentally locked ourselves out of the flat. The flat is spacious with 3 double beds so there was plenty of room for groups of friends to sleep.
Though generally clean, we did encounter a dead mouse and had a couple run-ins with live ones (only in the kitchen) during our 2-week stay, apparently due to the chicken shop beneath the flat.
The flat is very conveniently located near Whitechapel station, with easy access to a lot of transport. I'd recommend this flat if you plan to spend most of your time exploring the city and don't mind a seeing a mouse or two, though hopefully that issue will be taken care of.
Hilmi Ture hat uns sein Apartment extrem kurzfristig zur Verfügung gestellt und innerhalb weniger Stunden dafür gesorgt, dass wir es frusch geputzt und ordentlich beziehen konnten, danke!
We stayed in Hilmi's apartment with three colleagues. The location was perfect. It was close to our work venue. Plus, there were many nice food places and restaurants in the neighbourhood. Whitechapel Gallery was just a few feet away. This is a nice area of London! The apartment was clean. It was nicely painted and had wooden floors. I missed however some practical things that would make the apartment more comfortable, such as towel hooks in the bathroom, bed lights, etc. Main drawback was the street noise. Whitechapel Road is a very busy street with lots of traffic, and the apartment has single-pane windows.
I had an amazing stay at this posh apartament in east london. It was a real pleasure, the cost is very polite and helpful. The flat is very clean and modern. Amazing location, a bit noisy but with lots of shops, and very close to few stations. If u want to spend some quality time in Shoreditch I definitely recommend to stay with Hilmi!
The apartment is very convenient as it located just 3-5 minutes walk from Whitechapel tube station.
There are lots of shops, restaurants and a mini flea market along the whole stretch.
The whole area is Muslim populated and it is easy to find Halal food plus there is a Mosque just 10 minutes walk from the apartment.
Overall the apartment is equip with full necessary facilities and it creates a warm and cosy homely environment stay.
What was enjoyed most were the TV channels provided, especially the comedy central channels.
Definitely worth your money and time for this apartment!
Le logement correspond parfaitement à la description, rien à redire de particulier.
La proximité avec le métro a été un atout considérable !
Everything was ok.
great apartment very well located in the heart of stoke newington near bars, cafés, and amenities!
everything is ok
Hilmi has a great personality. We have known eachother since more than 10 years. I am pretty sure that he is one of the best hosts on this website as he is a people person and cares about his guests needs/comfort as far as I have seen when I visited him in London. Whenever I needed him, he was always there to assist.
Take care my friend!
Hilmi is not only a great host but also a good friend. We came to London for our business trip with my crew and we were a group of 13 people. He provided accommodation for all of us. He was always there to help us on everything we need, he even introduced us to his business connections as it was very useful for our business endeavour. I would highly recommend him to everyone not just for a perfect stay but to gain a good friend in London.
Thanks for everything Hilmi,
All the best!
Hilmi is a great guy with an easygoing character that you can become close friends in a very short time. We worked at the same company, that's why I can easily say he's type of person that you can both hang out and do business with (hard to find nowadays). He likes doing his stuff in a perfect way and takes it seriously, but he is a lot of fun when partying too. Having experienced his huge hospitality when staying over at his place, I'm sure he's one of the best hosts on this website :)
