The South East England region
Whitechapel is most known for probably the world’s most famous unidentified murderer, Jack the Ripper, who stalked Whitechapel in 1888, murdering prostitutes and eluding police. The Royal London Hospital has been in Whitechapel since 1757.
Whitechapel was filled to bursting with all types of immigrants by the 19th century, and the place eventually became known for prostitution – during the 1880s there were 80 brothels and about 1400 prostitutes within Whitechapel’s boundaries. Many of the slums were torn down or eventually bombed during WWII, and the area today, although not overtly posh, has almost no resemblance to the infamous area that was synonymous with vicious crime and murder.
Central London/Zone 2
Whitechapel Bell Foundry (www.whitechapelbellfoundry.co.uk) is the oldest manufacturing company in Britain. They’re responsible for casting Big Ben and the Libery Bell in Philadelphia. Although the Liberty Bell cracked on the first stroke, Big Ben has proven to be well worth the £572 it cost to make.
Elephant Man exhibit in the Royal hospital's museum is a free exhibition about 5 minutes walk from the apartment.
At Whitechapel Market, across from the Royal London Hospital, you can buy loads of Asian spices, jewellery and clothing. It might look a bit messy but it smells fantastic.
When it’s not:
Whitechapel Art Gallery (www.whitechapel.org) has been bringing some much needed culture to the area since 1901. It’s currently expanding the building with plans to double in size by 2009.

The welcome and demonstration around the apartment by Babs was very thorough. We were a bit apprehensive about the location but this turned out to be an unwarranted concern. Very multicultural and eve… More

"Amazing price and location"
Close to the tube, shops and restaurants. Clean, bright, and fully equipped. The owner is friendly and helpful but does not intrude on your stay. Deposit returned within a day. Highly recommend this flat.

"Good value, close to transport"
My partner and I spent 2 weeks in this apartment, and it was good value. The location was decent for getting to the tube; two different stops (Whitechapel and Stepney Green) are each about a 10-15 minute walk away, which was great for quick access to downtown London. This flat definitely isn't right in the heart of the city, but since transport is so close and easy, it was good for us, and the rent was much cheaper than it would have been if we were closer to the city centre. A big Sainsbury's was also only about a 10 minute walk away, and was on the way back from the tube station, which was handy. There were other shops, restaurants and pubs closeby too. The area was fine; we walked around many times at night, and had no issues. However, it's definitely not the most picturesque part of London.
The pictures of the flat are pretty accurate. It was clean and modern, and pretty much everything worked fine. The kitchen was a very small galley - definitely only suitable for one person working in there at a time - but it was fine for us. It was equipped with all of the basic nescessities. The flat is pretty small, but again, it was totally fine for two people. It was good to have the lounge area with the couch and TV.
The bed wasn't all that comfortable, unfortunately. It was new, but hard, and after two weeks, were were definitely ready to be back in our own bed. There was lots of storage space for clothing (two wardrobes and a chest of drawers) and having the washer/dryer in the flat was very handy.
The property was having its roof replaced when we visted, which meant that every morning during the week we were woken by very noisy workmen at about 7 am. The flat was on the ground floor, and the the motorized lift they used to get the slate tiles up onto the roof was right outside out bedroom window. Not really the property owner's fault, but it was bad timing for us and it did impact the enjoyment on our holiday, as my parner is a nightowl and tends to sleep in. It would have been nice to know about this problem in advance instead of when we arrived. Also, the workmen somehow turned off the water to the toilet, and we had to flush the toilet with a pail of water for two days. The problem was resolved by the proerty owner as soon as he could.
Check in and out were both good and simple. The owner was there when he said he would be. Having to clean the flat ourselves was annoying on the last day, but we knew what we were getting into when we booked, and it did save us money. However, I might suggest paying the fee to have it professionally cleaned instead.
Overall, I would reommend this property owner and this property. The glitches we encountered are unlikely to happen to others, and the price was right. We had a great time in London, and this flat worked out fine for us.
