Fantastic Apartment, Excellent contact from host.

  • 5 of 5

Had a fantastic 2 night stay here this week. The apartment is lovely, so nice in fact we stayed in longer than we intended just to relax. Great location, especially for us as we were watching the Hockey in the Olympic Park. Just a 10 min walk to the nearest tube station(Pudding Mill Lane Station) it was also easy to go exploring further afield. .Very close to the Olympic Park, 10 min walk to Pudding Mill Lane Station, where you can catch a train to Stratford just 2 mins away. We will definitely be coming back to stay here

Nice apartment, wonderful location!

  • 5 of 5

We spent a great week here with our 3 boys. Apartment was great with lots of nice, quirky stuff to enjoy, but also with everything needed (and very fast Wifi – the kids were more than happy). Beautiful views over the canal, the Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park and the London Stadium (went to a West Ham United game – 10 min walk! Just a shame that they lost ;o(

No street noise at all, probably one of the most quiet locations in central London. Sightseeing was very convenient with the Overground and DLR just about 10 min away. Stratford tube station (and shopping centre) also very easy to reach with a 20 min walk through the Olympic Park. John was a great host, very responsive and supportive! We really had a great time and should certainly come back for our next trip to London!

Fabulous place to stay!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at Ironworks for 2 nights with my wife and 3 children. It was perfect! Great sized rooms and very clean and tidy throughout. We couldn’t believe how close it was to all that the Olympic Park has to offer. Very friendly locals with the lock operators giving us some great walking shortcuts and advice! I would certainly recommend this apartment and can’t wait to come back again in the future! An ideal location for exploring London without the hustle and bustle of the city! Thanks again!

Eclectic apartment and neighborhood

  • 5 of 5

This is a beautiful apartment with an amazing view of the London Stadium. Because we were so close to the river the apartment has a wonderful breeze that cooled it off (we were there during a warm spell). John was wonderful to work with. Access to mass transit is only a 5-10 minute walk so very convenient.

The neighborhood is in transition with lots of construction and new restaurants.

A great space!

  • 5 of 5

Three days spent at the Iron Works apartment capped off a wonderful 10 day stay in England. We couldn't have been happier with the apartment. It was just a fun space. It was an easy, pleasurable walk, along the canal, to the Stratford Tube station. On our last night, we ate, just around the corner, at Forman's Smokehouse Restaurant: a first rate meal in a beautiful setting overlooking the canal and Olympic Stadium (as in the apartment). Tom, the taxi driver, who brought us there and opened the apartment for us, was driver, tour guide and consierge all in one. If we have the opportunity to return to London, we know where to hang our hats.

Well done John V.!
