The Old German School studio is a larger than average, airy studio flat, with the feel of a much larger place due to its generous proportions and layout, on the LOWER GROUND FLOOR of a listed converted Victorian school. Although it is classed as lower-ground it is not a dark airless basement as it has large windows and natural light in all the rooms but it is lower ground so please do not book if you are not happy with this. It is also double-glazed to the front so is relatively quiet for the centre of London. It is less than two minutes walk to Aldgate East tube which is zone 1 and five minutes walk to the beginning of Brick Lane and, in the other direction, ten minutes walk to Tower Bridge and the Tower of London.
The building was built as a German Lutheran School in 1877 and converted ten years ago to luxury apartments in the grounds of the oldest German church in the country.
The flat comprises a hall with fitted storage cupboard, a walk-in drying and storage room perfect for suitcases, wood flooring throughout, a fully fitted attractive eat-in kitchen and a good-size studio room with fitted wardrobes, sofa and pull-down quality bed. There is also a good-sized bathroom with shower attachment above the bath and a large window (with blinds!).
There is a locked gate (with video entryphone) and the flat is down a locked staircase to a private front door so is extremely secure and very suitable for single women travellers.
Check-in time is 16.00 and check-out time is 10.00 but we offer an early arrival or late departure for 25 GBP.
Our rates include absolutely everything: all taxes, utilities, high quality bed linen,fluffy towels, Oyster cards, unlimited high-speed WIFI, free phone calls to landlines in the US, Australia, NZ and all major countries and end-of-stay cleaning. We also quote a totally all-inclusive rate which encompasses a driver to meet you at the station or airport and deliver you in comfort and safety to the flat!
We require a 200 GBP security deposit which is refunded swiftly after the stay (unless there is a cancellation in which case the deposit is not refundable although we always do our utmost to rebook the time and refund any money we can) and a copy of the principal guest's passport as security.
We have been in London some days ago and we were very surprised to find a so cute accomodation (more than described!)
The flat is very near the tube station and easy to reach. The accomodation was very clean, tidy and.....british! It has been possible to find everything you need during an holiday in a flat (teapot, kettle, knives, soap, dryer and even current transformer!)
The customer service was excellent and gave us any information needed to improve our stay in London.
Clean, convenient, wonderfully located near Tower Bridge, shops, pubs, restaurants and tube stations. The flat was nice and warm, cozy coming back to after a day's sightseeing to put your feet up and have a cup of tea. Caring, thorough, experienced booking agent (Elizabeth), friendly owners; all of whom are concerned with your experience, welfare and comfort. I have stayed here before and will come back again!
Perfectly positioned for exploring London. Incredibly secure and quiet. I was visiting with my daughter and spent quite a lot of time investigating on my own, but always felt comfortable and cozy. The property manager is the best I've ever encountered-great communicator, stays in touch throughout your stay, provides detailed information answering all your questions. There were 2 Oyster cards that came with the apartment (you must load a package or pounds on to the card) that saved us a few pounds-easy to use and the tube station is 2 short blocks away. Grocery store, restaurants and pubs within 1 block. Bus stop around the corner. I would definitely stay here again.
I agree with all of the reviews of this property. The listing is accurate and the flat is clean and well-maintained. The location relative to Aldgate East Underground station is a big plus and the flat is less than 5 minutes walk of grocery shopping and a variety of restaurants. The owner/manager is very helpful and provided excellent service. We will stay here on our next visit to London.

Klein und wegen der Souterrain-Lage mit wenig Tageslicht, aber praktisch. Sehr gutes Badezimmer, voll eingerichtete Küche. Alles sehr sauber. Die Lage macht das Appartment besonders attraktiv: Tower und Towerbridge sind wenige Gehminuten entfernt. Da man in London ja in der Regel ohnehin den ganzen Tag unterwegs ist und nicht stundenlang in der Ferienwohnung chillt, ist dieses Appartment ein prima Ausgangspunkt.
Our stay in the apartment has been good from all points of view!
Upon arrival we were greeted by two very kind and assistants and Elisabeth was very friendly and constantly present by contacting us via email ...
The apartment is kept spotlessly clean and there is everything that can serve for a vacation for three people. In the flat there is wifi and you can make international calls (for some countries) for free.
The area is quiet, there are two metro stations within two minutes walk (Aldgate and Aldgate east) that allow you to reach anywhere in the city very easily and several supermarkets that close at 10 pm!
In short, we were completely satisfied with our stay!
Where do I begin?? You're in the centre of one of the most vibrant and exciting cities in the world. The local area has changed dramatically in the past decade. Brick Lane was always a hub for 'Indian' restaurants but has been regenerated as THE destination in London for bars and shopping. We have always had wonderful markets. The newly-restored Spitalfields market is now a hub of fantastic shops and eateries with an antiques market on Thursdays. Of course there's still the historic Petticoat Lane every day except Saturday and on a Sunday morning the fantastic flower market in Columbia Road. As well as flowers there are wonderful places for brunch and gorgeous independent shops.
In the other direction we have the Tower of London, Tower Bridge and the charming St Katharine Docks with its pubs and restaurants.

We ask for 50% upfront and 50% 90 days before the arrival date. If a cancellation is necessary the first payment is unrefundable.
We can book for two nights but our minimum tariff for any stay is 250 GBP. This is because the housekeeping and laundering charges are such that it is simply not worth it for the owner to rent the flat for less. We do try and include an early or late - usually 25 GBP.
Payment is usually accepted in the quoted currency (GBP) unless the currency and the amount is specifically agreed in advance with the owner / advertiser.
