this flat is clean, convenient and comfortable. Close to Aldgate tube station, so getting around is a breeze. Rentor is very nice and helpful. Would definitely recommend this flat !

After a great week and meeting Carlos who was very helpful, we have no hesitation is recommending you stay. The unit contained everything that we needed. It was conveniently located to both the tube and the financial district, Brick Lane, pubs, the market and the East End.
Although it is not right in Brick Lane and it is noisy at night as long as you know these facts then the value for money is great.
Carlos' apartment is clean, comfortable and well furnished and you will find all kitchen equipment you need. It is very well located a block from the underground (Aldgate East) or just a 5 minute walk to Liverpool street (one of London’s main train & underground stations), half-block from bus stop, near the center of London, with at least three Tesco supermarkets close by and numerous (Indian) restaurants in the neighbourhood. We loved the location and always felt perfectly secure. There was some noise in the evenings, but by city standards and from prior London experiences, not bad at all. The owner, Carlos is very easy to deal with, very trusting and helpful. Summing up, good price, good place, well location, and great host. We can absolutely recommend this accommodation and would choose it again for our next London trip.
This was a great apartment in a really interesting vibrant part of London with few apparent tourists (which is what I like). Carlos was a very friendly and accommodating host who greeted me when I first arrived. Very close to local tube station into central London and surrounded by lots of good Indian and Bangladeshi restaurants as well as the Brick Lane market on Sundays. Apartment was very comfortable with everything you need (and good wi fi). Would recommend this if you want to stay in East End of London. There is some street noise as other reviewers have mentioned but this is not a real issue unless you are sensitive to noise.
This review is past due!
I traveled to London as a promised trip to my then 16 year old daughter. Although getting to London was a pain, constant delays from Canada (15 hrs). I worried about inconveniencing Carlos with all the delays. We finally arrived at 4 in the morning, with the commute to the apartment, we arrived about 6:30 am, he was waiting for us.
A quick nap...and time adjustment, we were able to familiarize ourselves with the area. (I familiarized myself with the area, buses, tubes, etc. beforehand, of course I would... I'm traveling alone with my daughter! :) )
I will say that the location was awesome! Close to grocery store, Starbucks, buses, tubes... it was great! It felt like home away from home!
Carlos was easy to contact and always available. One day our key didn't work, I think with all our travels and it being in my bag, the magnet on the key was lost. Anyway, we did not have a cell phone in the UK but was able to email him from downstairs (outside) via the wi-fi in the apartment. We didn't have to wait very long before he was able to give us spare keys even though he was on the other side of the city.
I will agree that some nights, it was noisy! It didn't bother us, we actually found it amusing, well the people. :) We were there for 9 nights on vacation/sightseeing and we weren't going to let a couple nights of noise bother us.
We stayed here in June 2012, what brought me here again after all this time? My other daughter is turning 16 this year and planning another trip in 2015 and want to book in advance. :)
p.s. Had I known he would have every map available in the flat, I wouldn't have printed them all :D
