CHEAP & CHIC! ZONE 1! TRENDY E1! BETWEEN TOWER & BRICK LANE! EXTRAS!

City of London Apartment Rental Photos and Description

1 min zone 1 tube. Large studio with many extras. Wifi, phone calls, Oysters...

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.

Cute, cozy flat! Perfect for a stay in London!

This flat is exactly as it is shown in pictures. The description provided by the owners is completely accurate. There are no surprises about this flat. The property is well maintained, and was very clean when we arrived. Though there is construction going on outside, it never bothered us. It was a very quiet environment. Great for unwinding after long days of sight-seeing. We looked forwarded to coming home to the flat each night.

The owner, and property manager could not have been nicer people. Before, during, and after our trip they checked in to see how we were doing. Their consideration made the experience that much better!

Furthermore, the location of this flat is perfect. You can walk to a couple of sights. For sights farther away, the tube is simple two minute walk max from the flat. Next door is a pub/restaurant The Dispensary, which has great food and drinks. Or if you want to cook in the flat has a well stocked kitchen with almost everything you need to make a meal.

I would recommend this property to anyone going to London, and if I ever go back I will definitely be staying at this flat again!

Great location and Helpful Manager

Elizabeth was in charge of coordinating my details and she alone would warrant 5 stars. She was organized and helpful in every possible way. The apartment is ideal for 1 to 2 people as the flat is small. Even though it is small, it has all that you need for your London getaway. For instance, the Oyster cards are a huge advantage. I liked the location because it was very close to two tube stations and within zone one. Even better, being a bit on the outskirts of zone one took you away from the din of the city. As well, the car service that Elizabeth coordinated for me was excellent. When I return to London, I will undoubtedly stay here again. Great location, professional service, tidy flat with all the amenities - you don't get much better.

2nd Stay Just as Good as the 1st

This is the 2nd time I've stayed at the flat and it didn't disappoint again. It's comfortable, clean, secure, and in a fabulous location. I'm a frequent traveler to London and this location is one of the best. Even when Aldgate East station was closed. The flat is a short walk from Aldgate Station.

I've been there when the weather was warm and cold and I was never uncomfortable in the flat.

Elizabeth is professional and friendly, ensuring you are prepared for your stay.

I highly recommend this flat.

Simply, like being at home!! Great!!

This appartment is great!! and Elizabeth, the girl from the agency is so nice! She answered quickly and help us with all the things I asked her. The location of the flat is just in the end of the city, so you can go on foot to the centre of London. But if you don´t like this option the tube is two minutes far from the flat. The appartment is as you see on the photos, and just when you arrive you feel like being at home with the films, the guides, your coffe and package of biscuits... just perfect!!. Surely I will return to this appartment again.. Thanks for your help Elizabeth, you were right, " the meet and greet" service is the best option to the flat!!

.
Owner's Response: Dear Casti, Thank you for taking the time and trouble to write us a five-star review. You were a pleasure to deal with and I look forward to welcoming you back to the studio flat or, if you bring the family, the larger flat above. My warm wishes, Elizabeth

Great Location, Well Equipped

  • 5 of 5
  • Submitted: Oct 2, 2013
  • Stayed: Sep 2013
We stayed in this flat for one week in September. The location was excellent. Two minutes to the underground station Aldgate East where you could pick up a couple of lines that took you to most of London's attractions. Also within walking distance to a couple of small grocery stores and the Oldspitalfield market which has a large antique market on Thursdays as well as places to eat (we enjoyed the Real Greek). Also ate at the Dispensary right on the corner...great food excellent service (closed on Weekends).
There was a well equipped kitchen with everything needed to cook meals in. There was an oven which not all European kitchens have. It also had a clothes dryer which also is not common.
The meet at the airport was a great bonus as it took the guess work out of arrival time and place as sometimes can happen. We also had constant e-mail contact before during and after which was appreciated.
Would definitely recommend this property to friends or family.

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.

There is plenty of room for two people to stay without feeling cramped.

The flat has free wifi and also free phone calls to landlines in 35 countries. This also provides a way for you to contact us free-of-charge-to-you if necessary. The flat has always been a non-smoking environment, it has wooden floors and blinds, a leather sofa and very little in the way of soft furnishings so dust has nowhere to hide. The owner has a dust allergy so is very well aware of the problems involved in staying in a dusty environment. The flat has a dehumidifier to prevent any dampness and also a top-of-the-range air cleaner can be borrowed.
