Peaceful Canal-side Room 15 min to City Centre

Apartment, Private room - London, United Kingdom

ID 11666
5.0 (76 reviews)


A spacious and bright double bedroom in a newly built development set alongside London's most prized and prestigious waterway, the Regent's canal. It has stunning views of London’s Canary Wharf district and only one mile from London's City centre.

Be lulled asleep by the sound of water falling over Jonson lock and wake up to homemade jam and crumpets.

Your hosts pride themselves in offering bespoke guidance to ensure a memorable visit to London and their home.

We're located in Zone 2, and a nine-minute walk from Mile End Underground Station, along side the delightful Mile End Park.

This station is serviced by three different tube lines; a 15 minute ride to the city centre and a 5 minute ride to Westfield Shopping Centre in Stratford.

We are offering to share our beautiful home with like-minded people.

This is a friendly household that will leave you to do your own thing but also is happy to give any directions/info you may need to ensure your stay is perfect.

Amenities nearby include breakfast Cafes, take away/delivery shops, supermarkets & restaurants, all within a ten-minute walk radius.

We offer a spacious, modern and quiet room with a very comfortable double bed, wardrobe and writing desk.

There’s a window seat overlooking the Regent’s canal in the room, where you can be lulled in the summer by the falling waters of Johnston Lock.

You’ll have access to your own spacious private bathroom furnished with a bath/shower. Towels, bed linen, hair straightener and hair dryer are provided. Internet wireless connection is available and free. There's even a Luggage Scale to make sure you're not over the limit after your shopping sprees.

'Self-service' breakfast is with cereal, eggs, crumpets, fresh bread/toast, jam/marmalade, juices and coffee/tea (please let us know your preferences).

Smoking is allowed ONLY on the balcony.

We live in a new development on the first floor with open plan living space, two bedrooms (one will be yours), two bathrooms (one will be yours), a fully fitted kitchen to which you’ll have total access during breakfast and nightcap and a balcony overlooking the canal.

We have a privileged view of Canary Wharf, the Regent’s canal and that of the communal gardens. We’re located in Stepney, a multicultural part of London that has seen a lot of regeneration thanks to its proximity to the Olympic site.

We are three minutes away from Mile End Park and a 10-minute walk from the nearest Tube station, offering great transport links on the Central, Hammersmith & City and District lines.

There are also good 24-hour transport connections to central London, with the #25 and the # 205 buses taking you there in about forty minutes.

Some examples of journey times from our home (via the Underground):
4 mins to Stratford (Olympic Park and Westfield, Europe's largest shopping centre)
7 mins to Liverpool Street Station
15 mins to Tottenham Court Road (Soho, West End Theatres)
17 min to Oxford Circus (Shopping capital of Europe - Oxford Street/Bond Street)

You could also explore the wide network of canals by walking or cycling to see a different side of London. To roam along East London’s historic canal network is to unlock a tranquil world only yards from the bustle of this fantastic city.

Some attractions within close reach are: Shoreditch, Brick Lane (London's best Asian food district also renowned for its bars and nightclubs), Canary Wharf, Tower of London, Tower Bridge, River Thames cruises, Whitechapel Art Gallery, Jack the Ripper tours, the HMS Belfast, Monument, London Dungeon, Bank of England Museum, Southwark Cathedral, Barbican, St Paul's Cathedral, Tate Modern Museum, Globe Theatre, Southbank, London Aquarium and the London Eye.

    What a nice place along the canal ! A peaceful accomodation and an amazing view of Canary Wharf skyscrapers twinkling at night . Not far from Bus stops and the Tube station, which is very convenient .
    It is very clean and cosy . And having breakfast over the Canal is the first pleasure of the day ....

We weren't in the place we thought we would be. The adress was a different one, but as it was more in the center we absolutely did not mind, in contrary it was great for us! The room we stayed at was newly refurbished, the kirchen and bathrooms were new. It was very clean. The description of how to enter the flat was perfectly fine. We absolutely loved it and would recommend it to anybody! We were so surprised. You pay little and get a top flat. Can't recommend more!

Everything was as described and actually we received even more than that (complimentary soaps, teas, and more.. ) Very professional to say the least. As already described by others, our host(s) drew us a map of the surrounding area and were in general very nice and helpful. 10/10 Will definitely stay there again. Thanks for the hospitality!
