“Very nice stay for two!”
My husband and I found this place to be perfect for the two of us while exploring London. It is really close to the aldgate East tube station, so we got to use the tube a lot, which was really helpful.
“For us, near perfection.”
Carlos is a first class host, met us at the subway station, guided us to his lovely apartment, and gave us the advice we needed to start our London visit. He was easy to call if we needed more information. The apartment was ideal, cozy, and well furnished, all the kitchen equipment we could ask for, even fresh milk in the refrigerator, coffee on the counter. The place is well located a block from the underground, half-block from bus stop, near the center of London, grocery store handy, plenty of restaurants. The neighborhood is an interesting blend of cultures and personalities, more working class than upscale, but we felt safe, up on the 3rd floor, with elevator and locked entry to yard and building. There was modest noise, but by city standards, not bad at all. Good price, good plece, good location, and great host. Thanks, Carlos.
Response from the owner Thank you, Michael and Judy, for your lovely review. I'm so pleased that you enjoyed your stay. It was a real pleasure having you as my guests and thank you for the care you took of my apartment.
“Good place to stay”
Flat was exactly as described, in good repair, everything that we needed was contained within. Heads up as far as the dryer--if that's important to you, it did take several hours for a small load to dry--but it worked. Nice looking inside, in a gated complex. You could hear some of the sounds from the surrounding bars at night, but I never felt unsafe there. But it was a very nice place to stay, and Carlos was very nice and helpful to us.
“Comfortable modern flat in excellent downtown location”
Hi, we had a great stay in Carlos's flat. It was straightforward and easy to check-in on the first night - Carlos is a friendly host and gave a useful and thorough explanation of all the flat's details and features. The flat itself is clean, comfortable and nicely furnished - big leather couch, good bed, large flatscreen TV and all the kitchen mod cons you'd expect in a good flat rental. The bathroom even has underfloor heating.. classy. The location is incredible, it's on the third floor (there's a lift) in a secure courtyard in-between Whitechapel Rd and Brick Lane.. very lively area, you're perfectly placed right in the heart of buzzing East London nightlife and close to some top restaurants (Tayyabs, Lahore Tikka House etc) with easy access to the rest of the city via aldgate East tube stop (Zone 1) literally a minute's walk away. Carlos is very good on the communication front if your have any questions, and I wouldn't hesitate to recommend this flat to people looking to live in the heart of the city and experience real london life as opposed to staying in some boring, soulless and overpriced hotel. Oh yeah and the cost is a bargain - way cheaper than even a low grade hotel would be, and a far more authentic experience. Have fun..
Response from the owner Thank you, Dan, for such a lovely and detailed review of the whole experience as a guest in my apartment and of my neighbourhood.
“A real beauty by Brick Lane”
Lovely flat with all the great amenities nearby in the active Brick Lane zone. Weekend market days are spectacular fun and for clubbing and dining - the East End is fantastic. Plus, with aldgate East station not even a block away it is ridiculously easy to get around London. Great price - great place.
“A little gem in the hear of London”
I stayed in Carlos's apartment when I was travelling on my own through the UK. I loved the location and always felt perfectly secure. The apartment is compact but perfect for one or two people. It was equipped with everything a traveller needs but the best thing of all is the way Carlos personally makes sure you are settled. I was impressed that he'd got coffee and milk in for me plus there was laundry liquid for the washing machine and those extra bits and pieces.I'l be recommending Brick Lane to all my family and friends.
I recently visited London with my 16 yr old daughter June 23 - July 2, 2012. Carlos was great right from the time of booking till the day we left. The location was perfect! Close to the underground, buses, markets and grocery store. And if you're up to walking, it's not too far from St. Paul's or Rover Thames. The apartment was small but perfect for the 2 of us. Carlos was also very quick to respond when and if we needed his assistance. He accomodated us even with our 18 hr flight delay into London. He was waiting for us in the wee hours when we finally arrived the apartment. I would highly recommend staying here! Thanks Carlos!

Response from the owner Hello and thank you for your review: but what do you mean by ?????????????? I do not get it> many thanks anyway Carlos.
“Perfect for our needs - central location, all the amenities!”
Carlos was a delightful host and the flat was just as described - no surprises. He met us at the tube station and even pre-stocked the fridge with beverages. It was spotless and well maintained, an excellent home away from home. The location is not in the fanciest part of town, but was nonetheless very interesting and entertaining, with superb transit links to everywhere. A small supermarket was just outside the courtyard, and superb restaurants were just meters away on Brick Lane. Would definitely stay here again! Thanks Carlos!
“No doubt best value we could get for our money.”
First, the apartment looks great, the pictures don't lie. It is not huge (like any other london apparent) but it is for sure much much bigger then any hotel room. It felt like someone just moved out of the apartment a few days ago and left it as is, meaning it was completely utilized and perfectly maintained. Carlos was great he waited for us (even though we got there a bit late). Through out our stay in the apartment we didn't really need his help since there were no problem. We even had milk in the refrigerator waiting for us. Regarding the neighborhood, we didn't see any drug dealers or hookers like i read in some reviews of hotels in the area. There are two entrances to the building one from a very quite street and one from the main road (Whitechapel high st.) There are a lot of bars and clubs in the area so expect young people walking around some a bit drunk. But that whats great about east london. It is never boring. There are also lots of restaurants on Brick Lane and commercial st. Bottom line, we were extremely happy we got the apartment, it was great value for our money. Around: do not miss the St John restaurant in commercial st. for amazing trendy traditional english food. You should also try the "Biegel Bake" on 159 Brick Lane for some great fast food jewish beigels!
