About the property

This newly painted luxury one-bedroom apartment with recently refurbished bathroom is available to rent for short and long terms stays. There is a good sized bedroom with king size bed and wardrobe, and a large semi open-plan kitchen and reception room with a comfortable double sofa bed. The kitchen has all the appliances you could need including dishwasher and washing machine.

The flat is on the 4th floor (top) of a modern block converted from offices in the late 1990s. A lift is available serving all floors. Both the bedroom and living room are bathed with light in the afternoon and evening and benefit from views towards the city, including the 'Gherkin' and the new 'Shard' and 'Cheese grater' towers.

Plumbers Row is a quiet street in Aldgate, right next to Brick Lane, famous for its curry houses and bars. Shoreditch is only a few minutes away in a taxi or bus. There is a local park for relaxing in the sun, just 1 street away.

We are a few minutes walk from Aldgate East underground station (District and Hammersmith & City lines), and the famous Brick Lane.

Buses run 24 hours from stops at the end of the road, right into the West End. Within 15 minutes you can be at Oxford Street, and within 20 minutes at the Westfield shopping centre in Stratford. There is a Barclays Bike rack at the end of the street.

London visit in January

  • 4 of 5

We enjoyed this flat. The location was perfect for us as my daughter is attending uni near by. It was convenient to Aldgate East tube station and lots of places to eat and shop within walking distance. The flat itself was exactly as advertised. The one thing that would have been helpful was a welcome book with more information, such as how to work the radiators and microwave. We figured it out after playing around with both. We would recommend this flat!

Excellent location!

  • 5 of 5

This VRBO has an excellent location, just around the corner from a tube stop. We just jumped on it and were off to everywhere. The first day we got lost though returning to the place and we called Ian twice and he helped us thee old ladies find our way back. Ian was very helpful and was at the place the first day we got there ready to let us in. It also is a block a way from a grocery store and several good eateries which came in very handy. I would highly recommend Ian's place.

Nice flat

  • 5 of 5

The flat was well furnished and had a close supermarket. Brick Lane is only a 5 min. Walk and tube is close. I would stay here again. But, bring your own soap.

For our needs, a great place to stay.

  • 4 of 5

This is a great place to stay as it is close to the Underground and convenient to local shops and restaurants. We would definitely stay here again as it is so nice to be able to prepare some of your own meals and the extra space allows you more freedom of movement.

Very clean, convenient, quiet, good shower and the apartment has everything you need.

  • 5 of 5

Location was great,just 10 mins from the tube, heaps of services nearby - supermarket, restaurants, convenience stores, bottle shops, etc. Is in zone 1 for the the tube and whilst we grabbed the tube most days it was cheaper in a cab to Kings Cross on our last day so keep that in mind if you leave/arrive via there. The welcome was great and Ian was readily available via messaging for any queries we had. There was the four of us, 2 adults and two kids (12 & 9) so if yours don't mind sharing a Spacious pull out sofa then highly recommended for all mid sized families or couples. Thanks heaps guys.

Fabulous, light, clean and quiet.

  • 5 of 5

We have just left Ians place having stayed for a week. I highly recommend his place. It is true to the online description and we were very happy with everything.

It's close to the underground but bus 25 goes into Oxford circus if you've got the time for a slower, more interesting trip. The Thames Path was a good find too, we took a long walk home from Greenwich one day and really enjoyed it if you have time and energy.

We were impressed by how sound proof the flat was from the neighbours. It was also nice and bright and clean. After a short mix up with the number of the apartment on arrival, we found it OK and Ian was there waiting and helpfully explained everything. We didn't need anything during our stay but I felt confident that Ian was close by to help if needed.

In short, this apartment was great and I recommend without hesitation.
