Reviews of this property
Where to start first the plus side , great location for Olympic park , Westfield shopping centre and the underground station and the price is good.
On the negative side when I arrived I had no towel and when one did arrive it was stained ( not nice ) then there is the stale musky smell in the room .
The kitchen was dirty everything near the cooker was covered in splashes of grease , so toaster and kettle very greasy .
Then there’s the smell again in the kitchen this time smoky from the small extension / conservatory which has become the smoking room it’s also very dirty and the plants are growing into it .
Carpet up the stairs was very stained and dirty always need shoes on to leave the room because of this and most residents have flip flops to walk around the house in .
Kitchen has a Rentokil style poison box next to the cooker and next to that is a very dirty extension lead covered in grime .
Kitchen table covered in jam/gravy and other food stuff , wiped it down the first morning and next day back to dirty again .
Garden very overgrown if you did what to sit out there you cant .
General decoration of the house poor with wall paper coming away in places .
Finally the toilet stained and again I cleaned it out with the brush only to find it stained again the next day ( there really is no excuse for this )
Two bathrooms with nice bath in both but no plug , and so can’t have a bath only a shower witch when it’s hot it’s too hot and when it’s cold its freezing .
In the kitchen dining room there is a nice settee and a large TV , but you can’t have the TV on because the Ariel box has been removed , and in the room small TV has no BBC channels .
And as for the hot tub well I never found it .
Very professional, always available to help and offering solutions to particular requests and extremely practical. The place is always clean, ready by the time I arrive and usually the houses are very quiet. I keep coming back each time I go to London...
Me and my 7 years old daughter stayed for 3 nights in one of the loft rooms.
+ only 14 minutes walk to Westfield shopping mall
+ 17 minutes walk to queen Elizabeth park
+ good kitchen facilities
+ 3 minutes walk to a supermarket
- Nutella was empty
- 10 minutes walk to the Stratford station
- never met Rosie
- lack of information on arrival.
- can be noisy since there is around 6 rooms in total which can be rented out to different people.
- Had one towel and the same bedsheet for the 3 nights.
I chose this as I thought we would be living with a local family and all the reviews said that Rosi was very helpful but that wasn't the case. We met a maid on arrival who showed us kitchen, bathroom and our room and that's all the information we got. It felt like a hotel room except that the rooms are noisier. Loft rooms are quite compared to the ones on the ground floor.
There was some good bars and restaurants within 15 minutes of walk. Just go to Westfield shopping mall and on the other side of the mall there is a food street. Highly recommended.
Stratford station is a 10 minutes walk and is a good station to get everywhere.
Overall a good enough place if you are on a budget.
Es hat alles gut geklappt und wir haben uns sehr wohl gefühlt. Vorallem der kleine Garten hat uns gefallen, den wir auch genutzt gaben.
The room corresponded to the photos, as in England is often the case, however, the house looked worn. A bathroom was newly renovated, which we liked very well. During our stay we met again and again to new residents, so we were not entirely clear how many people actually lived dirt. The proximity to shopping and public transportation was great.
On our departure to Rosi unfortunately no longer reported to requests, which was very sad ...
Das Zimmer entsprach den Fotos, wie in England häufig üblich, wirkte das Haus jedoch verwohnt. Ein Badezimmer war frisch renoviert, was uns sehr gut gefallen hat. Während unseres Aufenthaltes trafen wir immer wieder neue BewohnerInnen an, so dass uns nicht ganz klar war, wie viele Menschen dirt tatsächlich lebten. Die Nähe zu Einkaufsmöglichkeiten und öffentlichen Verkehrsmitteln war super.
An unserem Abreisetag meldete sich Rosi leider nicht mehr auf Anfragen, was sehr schade war...
Ahead of our questions were answered very quickly. Unfortunately Rosi was during our stay even during the holidays. Although her deputy was nice, but could not provide information to us, because they practically did not understand English and had to call for any of our questions a girlfriend. The room was very small but adequate and the bathroom clean, the kitchen, the cleanliness was not that we wanted there to prepare a meal. Overall, the house is rather a bit grubby and unkempt. In addition, you have no idea how many people actually live there ... The location at Stratford station with two metro lines and the giant Westfield shopping center are close to tiptop. So overall for the price quite good.
Im Vorfeld wurden unsere Fragen sehr schnell beantwortet. Leider war Rosi während unseres Aufenthaltes selbst in den Ferien. Ihre Stellvertreterin war zwar nett, konnte uns aber nicht Auskunft geben, da sie praktisch kein Englisch verstand und für jede unserer Fragen einer Freundin telefonieren musste. Das Zimmer war sehr klein, aber okay und die Badezimmer sauber, in der Küche war die Sauberkeit nicht so, dass wir dort eine Mahlzeit zubereiten wollten. Insgesamt ist das Haus eher etwas schmuddelig und ungepflegt. Ausserdem hat man keine Ahnung, wie viele Gäste eigentlich da wohnen... Die Lage nahe beim Stratford-Bahnhof mit zwei U-Bahn-Linien und das gigantische Westfield Shopping-Center sind tiptop. Also insgesamt für diesen Preis recht gut.
Another positive is the favorable price and within easy walking proximity to the train station / metro Stanford. Despite a renovated bathroom all seemed a bit unkempt and unloving. Wallpaper coming off the wall, drains do not function. The room we had booked was not up to encountered. Apart from the cleaning lady, we have no one encountered by the staff.
Positiv zu bewerten ist der günstige Preis und die fussläufige Nähe zum Bahnhof/U-Bahn Stanford. Trotz eines renovierten Badezimmers wirkte alles etwas ungepflegt und lieblos. Tapeten kommen von der Wand, Abflüsse funktionieren nicht. Das Zimmer, welches wir gebucht hatten entsprach nicht dem vorgefundenen. Außer der Putzfrau haben wir niemanden vom Personal angetroffen.
Das Zimmer war wie dargestellt, einfach aber ausreichend für zwei Personen zum Schlafen. Die Lage ist für Londoner Verhältnisse (Preiskategorie) sicher gut. Die Anbindung in die City ist, nach wenigen Metern zu Fuss, sehr gut.
Dagegen war das Haus in einem schlechten, unsauberen Zustand. Die Toiletten waren vom Allerfeinsten (Licht teils vorhanden, selbst Toi-Papier musste man per Mail anfordern).
Sicherlich hängt es auch damit zusammen, welche Personen gerade vor Ort sind und die Küche sowie die Badezimmer zu dem Zeitpunkt nutzen.
