Hello there - I am 32, and I live and work in London.
Apartment was great for our three night stay. Erin was extremely helpful. Area was fun and everything was as described. Thanks!
I really enjoyed this flat. In a fun area of town, there could not be a better location if you're looking to relax and hang out. Great food, always something to do, 10 minute walk to a major station (Liverpool), and a great getaway up off the street. The bed? Wow. I slept amazingly well. The hosts are also responsive if you have questions or need support with working things.
The flat was a dream!
A great location and a nice apartment, all as advertised. Check in and out super easy. Nothing to fault it.
We stayed for a 1 month period, however the apartment is really only suitable for a short stay of 1-2 nights. It is small and only recommend for 2 people as the couch-bed is broken and not suitable for sleeping.
The flat is tired and would benefit from fresh paint and general maintenance. The skylight window above the bed leaks plus the blind really should be replaced so that sun doesn't shine in from sunrise! It's basic stuff but would make a big difference.
The level of cleanliness was very poor when we arrived - Erin & Ben did re-send their cleaner but it was a week later, she arrived 2 hours late, shirked off her cleaning responsibilities and was so slovenly and rude that we asked her to leave.
The cupboard shown in photo was not there, however when we raised this with Ben & Erin they were happy to help. As they were heading away they could only provide a flat-packed Ikea wardrobe which we built ourselves - we were happy to do so as needed hanging space and they did act promptly when we raised this with them. The new cupboard was great as had storage for our things as well as cleaning products, so we could get these out of the bathroom & kitchen.
The TV does not work however we were advised that could be connected to the DVD player to watch DVD's. We bought numerous cords to connect the devices without any luck, pretty sure that the devices are not compatible - so don't rely on DVD!
The location is central and handy - however very noisy at night. We found ourselves hoping for rain in the evenings as this generally meant the level of drunken merriment was less of an issue. Being across the road (email hidden) eatery does attract an assortment of characters looking for drunken munchies.
Cooking facilities are basic but functional for simple meals and breakfasts.
In summary, it's fine for a crash pad for 1-2 nights but it's lacking the basic comforts generally wanted for longer stays.
Lovely studio flat with very comfy bed and fabulous location. Erin and Ben were wonderfully flexible with check-ins and outs. Kitchen all fitted out for proper cooking but could do with more pans and some wine glasses ;-). Apart from that, no complaints at all. Had a really great time and will be back.
A great flat and a great place to stay for a few days in London. I was there on business so it was within walking distance to the business district which was great. Everything was easy from check-in to check-out and we were very comfortable for the time we were there. Thanks for the great experience!
Fantastic location, right on Brick Lane. Only downside could of done with a blind on the window above the bed.
Fantastic location at top of brick lane, flat small but convenient. Skylight has no curtain and so we were woken very early- good for early risers looking to explore London but not so good for hangovers! Ben was quick to respond and helpful, the whole process was very smooth. Thanks!
My two friends and me enjoyed our stay at the Brick Lane apartment. The apartment is really very well situated, we enjoyed hanging out on Brick Lane and in Shoreditch in general. The cleanliness of the apartment was okay, Ben and Erin were very friendly and always answered quick to my questions.
A nice place where I definitely would stay again!
Very easy going and flexible. Seem like experienced travelers. A pleasure to deal with --- and I would highly recommend them as guests.
Great guests! Friendly, clean and easy to get along with. Thanks Erin
