The apartment is located in a very safe, gated block of flats on the 2nd floor, with added luxury of the gym, steam room and sauna facilities on the ground floor for no extra costs. The gym complex is open daily from 6AM-11PM. Concierge is present every weekday from 8AM-4PM, and on Saturdays from 8AM-12AM.

The apartment is at the back of the building and is very quiet. The only thing that might wake you up in the morning is the sound of ducks from the near-by canal; it is rather therapeutic though. Neighbours are mostly professional couples in mid 30's, very quiet and no children. There are few restaurants and/or bars close to the building; Dane's Yard Bar and Restaurant is highly recommended and only few minutes away.

Free use of gym and steam and sauna facilities is the best bit this place has to offer. It is open daily, from 6AM until 11PM and I strongly advise you to use it, - ok, perhaps not the 'torture chambers', sorry, the gym, but definitely the steam room and the sauna. - It gets busier only in the evening, from 7PM. As long as you are inside the gym complex before 11PM, you can stay in as much as you like.

The Central House is located just next to the East London Porsche Centre on the High Street, on the north side of the High Street. It is a convenient and well connected, accessible location if attending exhibitions or sporting events at Excel and O2 Arena, Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park/Stadium and Victoria Park (Festivals: Field Day, Lovebox, As One In the Park); or if you are working locally, (3 Mills Studios, Stratford, Greenwich, Canary Wharf, Docklands & the City).

Best of all, the Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park has now reopened to the public and it offers a fantastic array of sport activities and other attractions. You could swim in the Aquatic Centre for £4.50 or visit Arcelomittal Orbit; standing 114.5m tall, this extraordinary attraction is the result of a creative collaboration between world-renowned artist Sir Anish Kapoor, designer Cecil Balmond and ArcelorMittal, the world's largest steel and mining company. With two observation floors, at 76m and 80m, the ArcelorMittal Orbit provides visitors with stunning views over the Park and across London's famous skyline. It is both a work of art and a thrilling experience. For full details about the Olympic Park, please visit the Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park website.

Central London is 30 to 40 minutes away, depending on traffic. This is transport zone 2 and travel links are excellent; there are 4 Underground and/or Docklands Light Railway stations, all within 10 to 12 minutes on foot. Your closest station is Pudding Mill Lane, (DLR), and it is only 3 minutes away. Bow Road, (DLR), is 6 to 7 minutes away; Bow Church, (Tube) is 8 to 9 minutes away and Bromley-By-Bow, (Tube), is about 10 to 12 minutes away. Please see pictures for directions.

Stratford International train & bus/coach station is approximately 15 minutes walk away, (or quicker by bus), which provides direct access to Central, Jubilee, DLR, London Overground and other regional trains services, as well as coaches to Stansted Airport, which depart every 15 minutes.

Among others, bus number 25 operates very frequently and this is a 24-hour service to central London and Oxford Street.

On the other hand, if you are a sporty type and prefer cycling, there are 2 Barclay's Cycle Hire docking stations within a 5 minutes walk from my apartment.

Due to the London Olympic Games 2012, the entire Stratford area was vastly regenerated and developed, becoming the main retail hub for East London. Westfield Shopping Centre in Stratford is Europe's largest urban shopping and leisure centre, with more than 250 shops and 70 places to dine. A vast, bustling, covered shopping mall with numerous shops, stocking designer clothes for every pocket as well as high-end, luxury brand stores; an Apple store, a diverse range of food options, a 17-screen multiplex cinema and a 24hr Casino.

Heading west from Stratford, whether it's towards the trendy Shoreditch for nightlife, bohemian Hackney, London Fields & Victoria Park or the business districts within The City & Docklands, all are readily accessible via the frequent local bus services.

There are 2 local Tesco shops: Tesco Superstore and Tesco Express, both within 8 to 10 minutes on foot.

I am a 38-year old photographer and usually, I live here on my own. When rented, my girlfriend (yes I know, sorry ladies, :), gets to have me and sometimes she's very happy about that and sometimes not so much...

Thank you very much for looking and please, if interested, tell me a little about yourself and contact me if you have any questions, queries or are simply curious. Thank you!

Location description from owner

The England region

What can you say really, that hasn't been said about London... :)

East London, England

The area was the host to the London Olympic Games 2012 and it was completely regenerated. The biggest shopping centre was open in Stratford in 2012, one stop away or 15 minutes walk. The near by canal offers a beautiful and peaceful walk; it does not feel like London at all. The canal is also a very popular route for cyclists.

Travel links are excellent from here. Closest station is Pudding Mill Lane, (3 minutes), on the DLR, (Docklands Light Railway). Turn left from the gate and first left again; from there, keep walking straight ahead and/or follow the signs.

For the tube (underground), turn right from the gate, walk straight ahead, pass the roundabout, keep walking straight, pass the McDonalds, (to your right), keep walking straight, pass the Bow church, (to your left), keep walking straight, pass the Bow Church (DLR) station, (to your left) and arrive to Bow Road tube station, (to your left), 10 minutes walk.

There is also Bromley by Bow tube (underground) station close to Tesco, 10 minutes walk.

One 24-hour bus operates and stops right outside the gate, No25 as well as the night bus, No8.

Prior to the Olympics, we did not have much to offer in terms of coffee shops and restaurants, but things have changed now and continue to do so. Within a short walk, towards Stratford, restaurants and bars are now springing up. Central London is surprisingly close and you could even walk to it by the canal, should you fancy a good 75 minutes walk approximately.

“Fantastic”

Reviewed 24 Jul 2016

The apartment was very neat and Dejan was on ground to welcome us into the apartment. He even went further to get us some fruits and beverages since we were coming in from the United States that morning. The apartment is within walking distance of Westfield Stratford and ease of transportation was a plus too. The gym in the building was an added bonus.

Thank you ever so much Jen. You are always welcome.

“Great, loved it!!!!”

Reviewed 27 Feb 2016

Dejan was incredibly nice, flexible, and accommodating during my stay. The flat is exactly as described; conveniently located, clean, and has most things you'd need for a short stay in London.

“Loved it. Recommended.”

Reviewed 23 Feb 2016

We had a great stay in Dejan’s flat. It was super clean and very comfortable. The flat is very safe, with closed gates and concierge. Dejan was kind enough to let us get an early check in, (3AM!!!), which we really appreciated. The flat itself is spacious for a 1-bedroom, exceptionally clean and with easy access to central London.

“Excellent location, Excellent apartment , Excellent host!”

Reviewed 22 Feb 2016

This is my second time at Dejan’s. Again, Dejan was a great host. Super generous, kind and thoughtful. The listing is as described, but with some brand new furniture in the bedroom and the living room, which you cannot see in the pictures. You need to update this Dejan, The neighborhood is much better than the last time round, with some new restaurants near-by and very close to the tube and everything that I needed. It was a great stay. Thanks!

“Very nice and clean. Recommended.”

Reviewed 22 Feb 2016

Dejan was very helpful and friendly. He clearly cares about the wellbeing of his guests. The facilities are great and very clean indeed. Central London is half an hour away and travel connections are excellent. Recommended.

“Very neat convenient apartment with a reliable host”

Reviewed 30 Nov 2014

We stayed at Dejan's apartment for more than two weeks rather for business than for tourism. The apartment is just 6 minutes walk from Pudding Mill DLR station with very convenient links to both City and Canary Wharf, and it takes only 5 minutes to ride to Stratford shopping centre with plenty of restaurants. The apartment itself is perfectly neat, with all appliances in working order (washing machine, dishwasher, iron and ironing board, kettle, cooker and so on), very quiet and warm. Dejan responds to all inquiries fantastically fast (I believe it has been already said in reviews above) and appears to be a very reliable person. We would highly recommend the apartment for your London stay both for business and tourism.

“The ideal location for a holiday.”

Reviewed 8 Oct 2014

Very warm owner, clean and tidy rooms, excellently maintained toilet, well equipped kitchen. You never felt anything was missing. Proximity to shopping and restaurants, with bus and tube nearby. Gives you a good feeling. We had fun.

“A GREAT HOLLIDAY”

Reviewed 13 Jul 2014

A quiet and nice place for holiday with good connections to the centre, a friendly host , we had everything we need for a wonderful vacation.

“Great London Apartment”

Reviewed 19 Jun 2014

My husband and I stayed for two weeks at this great London apartment. This was our first trip overseas, travelling from Victoria, Australia. It was a five minute walk to the nearest station, Pudding Mill Lane, zone 2. Easy and quick access to London attractions, even for us who had no knowledge of London's transport system. Dejan was quick to reply to our booking enquiry. He welcomed us on arrival and even left milk and a bowl of fruit for us. A big Tesco supermarket is a short walk away and a huge Westfield shopping centre in Stratford, a station away. The apartment was very clean, safe and a welcome retreat after a hard day sight seeing!

“Perfect starting point to visit London”

Reviewed 13 May 2014

Dejan is a wonderful host, very kind and helpuf at any time. His flat is comfortable, clean and in a good position for visiting London, placed within Metro zone 2 near both tube and DLR stations. The place is near Stratford station too, with direct and frequent links to Stansted airport (for people travelling Ryanair). There's also a Tesco supermarket a few steps away from the flat (opening times 6 am - 12 pm every day). What else? Thanks to Dejan for our amazing week in London!
