|Minimum Stay||2 - 3 nights|
This flat is brand-new in a gated luxury development in Bow, E3, just three min from a DLR station and five min from a tube - zone two so quite central. It is in the top floor with reliable mirrored lift and has a beautiful open-plan living area with leather sofa and matching double sofa bed, a glass dining table and chairs for six and the most gorgeous kitchen I have ever seen in a holiday let. Really deep Corian worktops, top-of-the-range AEG appliances including a dishwasher and washer-dryer, masses of cupboard space and swanky extra touches like recycling bins and the coolest sockets you will ever see!
I am sending this to Elizabeth to post for me as I have been unable to fathom out the review system on HomeAway and Elizabeth told me that so many other people have told her this. Ridiculous! Anyway we had a top-notch stay in this charming flat. Spotlessly clean, warmly welcoming with tea and cake and the radio playing and decorated with real care and attention. Very well-located for the tube, Docklands Railway (no time at all to Stratford for fantastic Westfield Centre - literally go on train and sat down and got up again!) and we took the bus down to Spitalfields Market which has Brick Lane (trendiest bit of London) and also Petticoat Lane AND Columbia Road (the coolest Sunday morning flower market ever - real London) right by it. The flat is handy for the supermarkets and some pubs and cafes used by locals too but we spent most of the time in the E1 and West End. Covent Garden was easy and fast to reach by tube and we loved it there too although it is more touristy than Spitalfields.
We could not fault the flat although the hot water to the shower in the family bathroom seemed overly complex but this is not the fault of the flat or the owners who have provided a photographic explanation with the notes and guide books etc. There are also films and books and games. Really, everything has already been thought-of for you. Genuinely caring manager in Elizabeth. And the best bit probably (except her) is that we were quoted an all-inclusive price which did include everything unlike the prices from all the other owners and managers we contacted initially.
Everything including a driver to collect us and take us to the flat!! was included so we could budget and stick to it! I am sorry I could not leave this review online but it is a genuine review from genuinely grateful guests. We hope to return and send our best regards from Napier in the meantime. Etta Lomax and kids.
Excellent flat close to transport, Anna very helpful and nothing was to much trouble for Mike. Would definitely recommend this flst to anyone, going to book here next time we are in london.
Excellent location in London. Close by to the tube station and DLR which makes it very convenient for tourists such as myself. Downtown is approx. 15 - 20mins away! I must commend how Mike (Guest Manager) had all the information we required regarding the appartment and surrounding area. I plan to return to London in September and will definitely plan to stay here!!
We were staying 1 week in this lovely place.
It has good location, close to the tube and the DLR. Very clean, fast internet, fully equipped, excellent customer service. Pictures in description are real.
Will comeback again.
Thanks to Elizabeth and Mike for making our stay comfortable!
Great flat, close to the underground station. Comfortable beds, good shower, excellent kitchen with all we needed! Everything worked perfectly. Elizabeth and Mike were always helpful. I strongly reccomend it for everyone who's looking for a pleasant stay in London!
My husband and I stayed here for a week with another couple. The flat is exactly as promised, and had everything we needed. The second bedroom is as small as it looks but is manageable. There was lots of information about London in the flat, loved 2 of the recommended Indian restaurants in the area. The Oyster cards came in very handy and the tube and DLR were very close. We used the meet and greet service which was well worth it after a 9 hour flight. Mike and Elizabeth were both great, answered my many questions promptly and also arranged a car service for our departure as well. I would not hesitate to recommend flat to a friend or stay again if I am fortunate enough to return to London.
The apartment was even better than described. The "Meet and Greet" service was very helpful (although a longer drive than a tube ride). The twin bedded room as you can see in the pictures is very tight, probably only appropriate for children. It does not have a closet. Everything in the apartment worked well. The fit and finish of the apartment was excellent. The co-op grocery store at Bow Road and Bow Church Station was just a few blocks from the apartment and had basic items (milk, bread, wine!). The quality of the bedding and towels was very good. There was a 1/2 liter of milk in the refrigerator, cookies on the counter and tea in the canister. Thanks for a great stay.
Bow is a characterful area in the East End of London which has seen radical changes in the last few years. Now classed as part of 'Docklands' and, more recently, the Gateway to the Olympics, this is your opportunity to stay in the real London but still less than half-an-hour on the tube (station less than five minutes walk away and the DLR is even nearer) to the centre of the West End. The flat is in a brand-new gated development of luxury flats on the edge of the beautiful Bow Conservation area. They have spotless, spacious communal areas and fast mirrored lifts along with a lovely raised communal garden and this flat even has allocated parking. It is on the top floor with only two other flats (all owned by us) so is perfect for large groups or families travelling together. Views are over London and the Olympic stadium from the large windows with Juliet balcony in the main room.
Bow is a very historical part of the East End of London with traditional pubs including the famous Bow Bells just around the corner. There are also green spaces including the gothic Tower Hamlets Cemetery - sounds spooky but it's a gorgeous unspoilt wilderness and also very famous, being one of the original Victorian 'Magnificent Seven' cemeteries. These days Bow is better known for being very close to Stratford - just one stop taking four minutes! - so has incredibly easy access to the brand new Westfield Shopping Centre and, of course, the Olympics stadium! In the other direction and also very easily accessible by either DLR or the tube is the rest of London. You can be anywhere in the City or West End within half an hour and a few minutes more to Harrods and 'Museum Mile'. Virtually everywhere is either a direct journey or has one change.
Particularly close is the very trendy (and also historically important) area that includes the wonderful markets Brick Lane, Spitalfields, Petticoat Lane and Columbia Road. As well as these world-famous street markets there are the 'Indian' restaurants of Brick Lane, the wonderfully-preserved Huguenot houses of Spitalfields and, of course, the spectacular Hawksmoor masterpiece Christ Church.
