SMALL, GREAT VALUE, YET VERY COMFORTABLE FLAT NEAR ZONE 1 & TOWER BRIDGE & RIVER THAMES for 1-4 people (possibly 5th person if a child).

This is a small but a great little Value flat for 1-4 people!! It is in Zone 1, smart, stylish and clean and comfortable. If you have a late or early arrival please let us know first. We will accommodate your needs : ) Please do not mind that we ask you for a copy of your passport for ID purposes.

This flat has 1 bedroom with a Double bed and 1 Lounge with 2 comfortable sofabeds that opens up to TWO comfortable double beds. It has a small bathroom with a bath and a shower attachment. This stylish flat is refurbished to a a very good standard.

This flat is in an ideal location as it is in the city centre and yet it is easy communting distance of all London's attraction in the centre of the city and also within easy travel of the Olympic site. It is perfectly comfortable for 1-4 people (5 if it is a child). If you do not enjoy Indian food or culture, this flat will not be suitable for you as the area is predominantly full of Asian people and Asian businesses and Indian restaurants.

1) The flat

- The flat is located in a safe family area with a mixture of professionals from the financial part of the city living in the area and muslim Asian families.

- It is a very modern, comfortable flat located in the vibrant heart of London's iconic East End and only 12 minutes walk from Adgate East station and 20 minutes walk to Liverpool Street Station.

-The flat is entered via the main door shared by the public to the medical centre. A white set of gates separate the private area for the flats from the public part of the building.

-The flat is refurbished to a good standard in neutral tones with bold splashes of colour.

- Set on the first floor of a 2-storey building, the flat has been refurbished to a good standard throughout and equipped with all modern conveniences.

- There is a double bedroom furnished with a double bed (for 2 people) with a large wardrobe.

- The lounge is small, smart and has 2 large sofabeds that convert to 2 double beds (possible to sleep altogather 4 people). These are not ordinary sofabeds but become 2 very, comfortable DOUBLE beds.

- A separate mattress for the 5th person if needed.

- Wifi Broadband is provided free

- The kitchen is open plan to the Lounge and is fully equipped with hob, microwave, fridge/freezer.

- I do not allow use of the Washing machine anymore as it has been constantly broken by guests, HOWEVER there is a laundry place about 15 meters away on Burslem Street that will do 'Service' washes - It means you drop it off and pick it up the next day (or that evening) : )

- The small bathroom is tiled and contains a WC, basin and bath with an overhead shower.

* The flat will accommodate max 4/5 people

- I provide clean bedding and towels.

Access to everything in the flat which is fully furnished for living.

Not much, as the flat is independant.

About Lara

I am passionate about property and people and look after several properties in central London catering for guests looknig to stay in London for a short period, whether it is on business or leisure. If you are new to London, then tell me and i will try to give you as much information to help you prepare your trip. I will provide a lot of information on how to experience London on a budget whether you are here on business or leisure.

Why Lara chose London

The location of this flat by Zone 1 and close to the river, the financial centre, iconic attractions such as the Tower of London and the new Shard building means that it is in an ideal location for many visitors. It is a easy ride to Trafalgar Square, Piccadilly Circus but equally in the other direction to the Docklands and the Olympic site. Most of London is easily accessible for this location. Please read the description part of this advert for further information. It is also great value for such a prime location!

What makes this apartment unique

This place is by Zone 1, very easy to communte to most parts of central London. The number 15 bus will take you to most tourist areas in London.

Guestbook comments from the owner

We have been spending the New Year in London and the apartment is located in a quiet neighborhood which has many restaurants, supermarkets and well connected to the city center. The owner treated us very well giving us a lot of information. The announcement is as housing really is.

THIS PROPERTY IS BY ZONE 1 EAST SIDE OF THE CITY. (NEAREST TUBE STATION IS ADLGATE EAST STATION, WHICH IS 10-12 minutes walk from the flat: ) It is near 3 stations: Aldgate Station, Aldgate East station, Shadwell Station. Tower Hill Station is also not far away.

The apartment and location offer central London Zone 1 comfort and convenience. It's an ideal base for exploring London's tourist attractions or for doing business in this remarkable city.

The immediate neighbourhood is sandwiched between the financial centre of London and an asian community....and as such you have a lot of professionals working in the finance industry living around. There are a lot of Asian families living in the area and it is safe and secure. There are lots of Asian businesses and restaurants, so you really have to love Asian food! I do : )

Also the surrounding area is an outlet for the fashion industry so there are lots of 'Whole Sale' outlets that will sell to individual public and so you can get real baragins buying direct if you shop around in the area!
