"Wonderful, comfortable to be with young children to visit London"
The easy explanations of Janet facilitated finding the location of the apartment. Independence provided on arrival and departure, with own keys in a safe password. Equipped with all the amenities to make your stay a pleasant one. There we were great! And it was a ground floor with a garden where every morning greeted the squirrel jumped while the tree.

"Appartement pratique, confortable et bien situé prés du centre de Londres"
L'appartement est situé au rez-de-chaussée dans un endroit très calme, sa taille est suffisante pour 5 personnes.
L'appartement a été rénové, il est bien décoré et posséde tout l'équipement nécessaire.
Draps et serviettes sont fournis. Commerces à proximité.
Depuis l'aéroport de Gatwick le train vous emmène en vingt minutes à la gare de London Bridge, puis 3 arrêts de metro jusqu'à la station de Old street à 600 métres de l'appartement.
Le centre de Londres et toutes les principales attractions sont facilement accessibles soit par le metro soit par le bus (arrêt tout proche)
Il est possible d'aller à pied jusqu'à la cathédrale St Paul et au musée Tate Modern.
Janet était là pour nous accueillir et nous donner très gentiment toutes les indications.
Janet est tellement attentionnée qu'elle a même pris des nouvelles par email au cours de notre séjour.
Merci Janet pour nous avoir permis de passer un si agréable séjour.
Nous avons beaucoup aimé :
Le WIFI gratuit et rapide.
Le supermarché à proximité ouvert tard.
La qualité des équipements (couchage,cuisine..)
Nous aurions aimés :
Que le jardin devant l'appartement soit mieux entretenu.
Que la musique du Pub mitoyen soit plus discrète (le week-end).
Quelques couverts supplémentaires.
Que la VMC de la salle de bain soit moins bruyante.

"Excellent rapport qualité prix pour Londres"
Nous sommes restés une semaine chez Janet. Et ce que nous pouvons en dire c'est que tout est bien organisé pour vous donner les informations dont vous aurez besoin en arrivant. L'appartement est confortable, même si je crois qu'il doit être exploité depuis plusieurs années. Il est situé près des transports en commun de Old Street et Angle ( un peu plus loin) ce qui en a fait une excellente base pour visiter tout Londres en bus. J'y reviendrais avec grand plaisir.
Conseil : lorsque vous arrivez les numéros dans la rue sont fantaisistes, le 2 ironmonger Row n'est pas si facile à trouver. Un indice il est dans le jardin se situant juste avant le pub " Le Britania", dont le mur est mitoyen avec l'appart. Nous avons eu des sueurs froides en arrivant avant de trouver un minuscule numéro 2 sur la grille.
Autre chose, il y a un lave linge dans l'appartement, même si personnellement j'aurais trouvé plus utile pour un séjour comme le notre d'avoir un lave vaisselle à la place.

"The perfect place to stay in East London"
We have stayed in Ironmonger Row previously and returned without hesitation. It is a very comfortable, well appointed apartment with everything anyone could require. We chose it because it was convenient to where our sons are living but we have found that it is very convenient to all parts of London. Our hostess, Janet, has always been very accommodating and we can't recommend this place highly enough.

"Just one word: Lovely!"
I stayed at Janet's flat in April/May 2011 with 3 friends for 9 nights - and it was perfect!
All instructions on how to get there, what to do around the area and how to use the appliances in the flat were sent to me in advance by the thoughtful owner - so it was really easy to get there and get used to the flat itself. Janet also responded really quickly to all my mails and questions.
We arrived about an hour later than expected - but Janet waited patiently for us and gave us a very warm welcome nonetheless. Then she didn't just leave us with the keys - no, she showed us around the flat, explained all the appliances, wi-fi and everything once more in person - and gave us some really good advice on what to see and do in the area. She is such a helpful, charming and friendly person - it was a pleasure meeting her.
Janet also accepted the security deposit in Euro instead of British Pounds - which was a big plus for me.
The flat itself was neatly decorated, clean, tidy, very well equipped and with enough places to sit or sleep on for up to 5 people - the double bed, the foldout sofa and the cot were all comfy enough. The only things we were missing were a teapot and a bottle opener - but that wasn't really that tragic. All in all: we had eveything we needed.
Best thing about the flat though was the location - it is so convenient, right in Zone 1, close to the actual CITY, within reach of Shoreditch,Hoxton, Spitalfields etc. The transportation links are excellent as well:
We usually walked 7-10 min to Old Street Station (there's a Co-Op supermarket, a post office and a bike docking station on the way) which is on the Northern Line or simply used the bus from the stop at St Luke's Music Education Centre (not even 5 min away). Bus 55 takes you straight to Oxford Circus in 20 - 25 min or to the Columbia Flower Market, Brick Lane and Shoreditch when you go east.
Big THANKS to Janet - for such a great stay!
