Our hosts were welcoming & helpful, pointing us to some great restaurants, cafes, & pubs in the area, other points of interest in the area, and helping us in various ways. The neighborhood is diverse and felt quite safe. Our lodging was fun (art-deco!), clean, with everything we needed, including separate sleeping spaces (a bedroom and a sofa bed in the living room) for our teenage and not-quite-teen daughters. Also, the place is fairly quiet, and felt secure. In the area we enjoyed: Tayyabs is a fantastic Punjabi restaurant, quick service, incredible food -- as a family of four we went at 5PM, arriving before the rush. Nude Espresso in nearby Brick Lane area serves really great breakfasts and truly excellent espresso (complete with foam art), plus a great vibe and conversation. We went there every day of our stay! The Good Samaritan Pub next door had tasty pub food and an enjoyable atmosphere (again, for our family of four, it worked best to go early -- at 5PM). I would absolutely recommend this property to friends and relatives, and we would stay there again! Our stay in London was great fun, thanks to this cozy, restful place, easy access to Tube and bus lines, and central location. Thank you, Rolf and Mok!
