Location, Location, Location!!!!!

  • 5 of 5

Found the flat Clean, Comfortable, Convenient and very Quiet. The host ,John, was extremely accommodating, responded quickly to my numerous inquiries, and his information was accurate (no 5 minutes walks being 30 minutes or more). The nearby Westfield Shopping Center is easily reached by a 10-15 walk or bus #276. It contains numerous restaurants, food stores, entertainment and the usually clothing stores, etc. The same travel information applies to Stratford International (adjacent to Westfield) which is a gateway to London (Central, Jubilee and DLR) and Southern trains for day trips outside the city. The arrival information sent by John a few weeks before arrival contains a wealth of useful and practical information. The convenience of a washer and dryer in the flat cannot be overstated - accidents do happen. Last but not least is Tommy the taxi driver - knowledgeable, cheerful and knows his way around London and England. Keep in mind he also does day trips. Planning our next trip to this most enjoyable waterside flat - already miss waking up and seeing the ducks and swans in the water in front of the flat. TRY IT, YOU WILL LIKE IT!!!!!!!!!!!!

Great location and lovely views

  • 5 of 5

My husband, myself and our adult children stayed here over the US Thanksgiving Holiday in November. We had a great time. The flat was easy to come and go from and we had all of East London at our fingertips, fun cafe's, great walks on the canal and greenway, and new breweries to choose from .

It was fun to go into Central London, and retreat to this quieter area in the evening. The flat was well equipped and comfortable to have a little family reunion, while enjoying the surroundings that our son now lives in.

Thanks to Tommy for picking us up at Heathrow after a long flight it was really easy and it was good that he could take our girls back to Heathrow on a Sunday morning.

We have lots of reason to go back to Hackney and will stay here again.

Thanks John for being responsive as well, to our inquiries about the property.

Spacious and modern living on Fish Island

  • 4 of 5

Impressive two bedroom apartment on the second floor of a modern block, not too distant from revitalised Stratford, East London. Access is via a lift/elevator; the block is gated and has reserved parking for one car. The living room/kitchen/dining area is large and has feature windows opening onto the River Lea, Old Ford Lock and London's 2012 Olympic Stadium. The kitchen area is reasonably well equipped, complete with fridge, freezer coffee maker, microwave, oven and four-ring hob. The living area has a large, curved screen TV, DVD player, Sky satellite services and a PS3. Passable Internet/WiFi is provided, too.

The main bedroom is a good size and has an en-suite bathroom with shower. It also has patio doors opening to a balcony. The second bedroom is without an en-suite, but is a good size..

The main bathroom is fully equipped and contains an excellent washer and drier.

The apartment is clean and tidy and is characterised by the eclectic collection of curious, including a Mini Car sofa, a bust of Sterling Moss and set of branding irons!

It was a very comfortable place to stay for our few days in London and I would recommend it, especially as the owner was super-helpful, as were the cleaner and her taxi-driver husband. The ride to Heathrow on our last day was a godsend.

The few downsides included the feeling that the apartment seemed a little tired; it looked quite well used and possibly in need of a slight refresh. The windows in the living room could have done with blinds, given that we had one person sleeping in there and there was also no kitchen paper available. I'd have liked to have seen a visitors' folder, too, with local information and recommendations, over and above the information the owner provided online. The apartment was some little way from the Underground, train and DLR services, with Pudding Mill Lane being the closest station, some 10-15 minutes walk away.

Overall, though, a great place to stay if you don't want to be in Central London and are happy to use public transport.
