This is very clean and tidy, freshly refurbished, 1 double bedroom flat, within transport zone 2. The apartment is overlooking the Bow river canal and new Olympic stadium in East London, with excellent travel links. All rooms are very spacious and with modern furniture with plenty of storage space. Kitchen is smaller than the rest of the rooms, but very practical and fully equipped. All towels and linen are also provided, together with the welcome pack of tea, coffee, milk and breakfast cereal for the duration of your stay. Overall, this is an ideal East London base for your vacation and/or work in the city. You will have sole use of the flat during your stay.
Price per night is as follows:
The apartment is located in a very safe, gated block of flats on the 2nd floor, with added luxury of the gym, steam room and sauna facilities on the ground floor for no extra costs. The gym complex is open daily from 6AM-11PM. Concierge is present every weekday from 8AM-4PM, and on Saturdays from 8AM-12AM.
Free use of gym and steam and sauna facilities is the best bit this place has to offer. It is open daily, from 6AM until 11PM and I strongly advise you to use it, - ok, perhaps not the 'torture chambers', sorry, the gym, but definitely the steam room and the sauna. - It gets busier only in the evening, from 7PM. As long as you are inside the gym complex before 11PM, you can stay in as much as you like.
The Central House is located just next to the East London Porsche Centre on the High Street, on the north side of the High Street. It is a convenient and well connected, accessible location if attending exhibitions or sporting events at Excel and O2 Arena, Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park/Stadium and Victoria Park (Festivals: Field Day, Lovebox, As One In the Park); or if you are working locally, (3 Mills Studios, Stratford, Greenwich, Canary Wharf, Docklands & the City).
Central London is 30 to 40 minutes away, depending on traffic. This is transport zone 2 and travel links are excellent; there are 4 Underground and/or Docklands Light Railway stations, all within 10 to 12 minutes on foot. Your closest station is Pudding Mill Lane, (DLR), and it is only 3 minutes away. Bow Road, (DLR), is 6 to 7 minutes away; Bow Church, (Tube) is 8 to 9 minutes away and Bromley-By-Bow, (Tube), is about 10 to 12 minutes away. Please see pictures for directions.
Stratford International train & bus/coach station is approximately 15 minutes walk away, (or quicker by bus), which provides direct access to Central, Jubilee, DLR, London Overground and other regional trains services, as well as coaches to Stansted Airport, which departs every 15 minutes.
Among others, bus number 25 operates very frequently and this is a 24-hour service to central London and Oxford Street.
On the other hand, if you are a sporty type and prefer cycling, there are 2 Barclay's Cycle Hire docking stations within 5 minutes walk from my apartment.
Heading west from Stratford, whether it's towards the trendy Shoreditch for nightlife, bohemian Hackney, London Fields & Victoria Park or the business districts within The City & Docklands, all are readily accessible via the frequent local bus services.
There are 2 local Tesco shops: Tesco Superstore and Tesco Express, both within 8 to 10 minutes on foot.
I am a 38-year old photographer and usually, I live here on my own. When rented, my girlfriend (yes I know, sorry ladies, :), gets to have me and sometimes she's very happy about that and sometimes not so much...
Thank you very much for looking and please, feel free to contact me if you have any questions, queries or are simply curious.

The flat is exceptionally cleaned before every arrival. Although you are not expected to keep it that way, you are expected to keep it reasonably clean and tidy. Common sense applies.
It was perfect! This flat was just what we were looking for. It was very comfortable and provided everything we needed. The location was a little far from city center, but still only a few minute walk from the DLR which connected to the tube at Stratford. It was a great location in that the area felt very safe and it has a nice view of the Olympic stadium. We were there for a week and really enjoyed our time. Dejan was an amazing host was always available to answer any questions we had. I would definitely recommend this to my friends and hope to stay here when we return to London. Thank you Dejan!!! :)
