This place was OK to stay for a couple of days...Kitchen is well equipped, although it requires little more care and maintanance to keep it appealing
I actually don't know where to begin. From what i could make out of the initial add we would be alone in an appartment with bathroom and kitchen. To my surprise there were 2 other rooms occupied and we had to share the kitchen and bathroom.
Let's start with the kitchen. True, it looked nice at first glance. But taking a closer look i noticed that the furnace wasn't working very well. One of the gas hobs didn't fit very well, so it sometimes performed more like a flamethrower. Besides that it was covered in black stains and in an overall sorry state. The locking mechanism of the kitchen window wasn't working at all. We had to place an adaptor found in one of the kitchen drawers to keep it firmly shut.
The amount of knives was below average. Assuming that all the rooms would be occupied, there were 2 knives available for 8 persons.
The bathroom was something else completely. Taking a shower was difficult because of the screwthread that holds the shower head together failed completely. We had to clamp the showerhead between some rail and the wall to get it to spray in the right direction. The bathtub had black stains near the drain. The sidecover of the bathtub was loose at the bottom part, so when entering we regularly came in contact with the edge pointing outwards. The showercurtain was loose in the middle; one of the attachment points was completely rusted through, and at that spot was water dripping out from the ceiling. The taps had to be firmly shut to keep the water from dripping.
Not to mention the doors. Due to the lack of proper doorhandles the doors from both the toilet and the bathroom had to be closed by some sort of bolt.
We were told that the rooms would be cleaned on a regular basis. We stayed for a whole week, and not once our room was cleaned, or the sheets of our beds changed.
Ending with the floorcovering in both the kitchen, toilet as well as the central hall which very much needs replacement, i hope to have made my mark.
The owner (as far as i could see from Indian origin?) told me in a proud way that the property was his. I don't know much about the living standard in India, but for us this was a bit below average.
Great accomodation, nearby Bethenal Green and from there it is easy to go to the main stations in London. I would definitely book it again if i am comming back.
The entire apartment was always very clean and that made it a very nice and comfortable place to be. There was a quiet and calm atmosphere, and Marcos seemed very welcoming and helpful
My only critique point is that I couldn't adjust the heating system, so at times the temperature inside my room was far too high.
Good place to stay, very central and close to living streets (with spicy restaurants) though in a quiet area.
Bed very good, but room too hot in winter -for me-.
Don't expect to find salt nor oil in the kitchen.
In contradiction to what I read in the reviews, I thought the place was pretty easy to find (I had taken a picture of where it was on Google maps, that really helped). Marcos was nice, but we didn't have that much contact with him, he showed us around and left us to it, and for us that was enough. The room was nice, it looked a bit like a hotel room, it's really convenient to have your own fridge and TV in the room. We didn't use the kitchen, but it looked nice and clean. The bathroom could use some fixing(I think they are busy doing that!), but worked fine as well. The place was a bit noisy (I once heard a child cry somewhere in the flat in the middle of the night) but not so much that it bothered us. The neighborhood was fine, I didn't feel unsafe, and Bethnal Green station really is conveniently close. The best thing about the room is that it's not so expensive, so if you're going to be out and about in Londen all day, and you just need a nice place to sleep, I would surely recommend one of Marcos's rooms!
