Key Info
  • Suitable for children over 5
  • No pets allowed

The Old German School studio is a larger than average, airy studio flat, with the feel of a much larger place due to its generous proportions and layout, on the LOWER GROUND FLOOR of a listed converted Victorian school. Although it is classed as lower-ground it is not a dark airless basement as it has windows and natural light in all the rooms but it is lower ground and the stairs are about 150 years old and not even so please do not book if you are not happy with this.

It is also double-glazed to the front so is relatively quiet for the centre of London. It is less than two minutes walk to Aldgate East tube which is zone 1 and five minutes walk to the beginning of Brick Lane and, in the other direction, ten minutes walk to Tower Bridge and the Tower of London. There are two supermarkets within three minutes walk for all the essentials although you will find the wherewithal for a nice cup of tea when you arrive!

The building was built as a German Lutheran School in 1877 and converted ten years ago to luxury apartments in the grounds of the oldest German church in the country.

The flat comprises a hall with fitted storage cupboard, a walk-in drying and storage room perfect for suitcases, wood flooring throughout, a fully fitted attractive eat-in kitchen and a good-size studio room with fitted wardrobes, sofa and a UK double (so 4 ft 6 in wide) bed. There is also a good-sized bathroom with shower attachment above the bath and a large window (with blinds!).

There is a high-quality UK (4 ft 6 in wide) double bed in the large and light studio room. This retracts into the alcove in the daytime to give you an attractive space as a sitting room although there is sufficient room with the bed down. It's quite a large room with two big (double-glazed) windows. Because of the layout of the flat, with five separate rooms (living room, kitchen, bathroom, hall and walk-in storage room) it does not feel like a studio at all. There is plenty of room for two people to stay without feeling cramped.

We can accommodate another guest on a single bed that can be installed in the studio room so, as it is the same room as the bed/living area, it is best suited for two travellers who do not wish to share a bed or for a child travelling with parents. The room is very snug with both beds in position but it may be ideal for those seeking a small pied-à-terre in zone one and who do not require a lot of space.

There is a locked gate (with video entryphone) and the flat is down a locked staircase to a private front door so is extremely secure and very suitable for single women travellers.

Check-in time is 16.00 and check-in time is 10.00 but we offer an early arrival or late departure for 5 GBP per hour extra.

Our rates include absolutely everything: all taxes, utilities, high quality bed linen,fluffy towels, Oyster cards, unlimited high-speed WIFI, free phone calls to landlines in the US, Australia, NZ and all major countries and end-of-stay cleaning. We also offer a very popular Meet & Greet service whereby a driver meets you at the station or airport and delivers you in comfort and safety to the flat!

"Perfectly located in diverse and safe neighborhood within a short stroll to Tower of London."

Location is fantastic for anyone who plans to go see the Tower of London. We enjoyed making the trip on foot from there to Buckingham Palace, with many sights and stops on the way. The Tower of London is just a short walk from the apartment building. Elizabeth was wonderful to deal with on our rental and had excellent tips for our stay. The apartment was very clean and well appointed. The area has an eclectic choice of many interesting eating places. We injoyed some excellent curries on Brick Lane, and the King of Prussia on Prescot St was an unexpected delight for traditional pub fare and a welcoming local flavor.
