Tower Hamlets is the borough east of central London, with very easy access to the city and central London by tube (Central line, District line and the DLR). There are also plenty of buses and night buses running 24/7 from all directions in London.
It forms the core of the East End, home to a lot of exciting history. Tower Hamlets lies east of the medieval walled City of London. Use of the term "East End" in a pejorative sense began in the late 19th century, as the expansion of the population of London led to extreme overcrowding throughout the area and a concentration of poor people and immigrants in the districts that made it up. It was also in these neighborhoods the infamous Jack the Ripper operated in 1888.
Today Tower Hamlets is a diversified borough of London, and the status has increased a lot over the last decade. This is where you find the amazing Brick Lane market, along with many hip bars. 10 minutes’ walk from Brick Lane is Shoreditch, which is one of the most popular clubbing areas at the moment.

apartment well located, clean, everything you need for cooking, only drawback is no double glazing, extremely street overnight passage and ambulance siren, it's hard to sleep at once.
appartement bien situé, propre, tout le nécessaire de cuisine, seul inconvenient pas de double vitrage, rue avec extremement de passage toute la nuit et sirène d'ambulance, on a du mal à dormir du coup.
Unfortunately the room wasn't as expected and definitely not worth the money. It was dirty and shabby. The side bed was a joke and the street is quite loud.
The only positive things were a big tv and a good wifi connection.
Very warm, comfortable and safe place to stay, mostly good facilities but seems like it is always improving, even while we were there furniture was being replaced and improved. Kitchen and bathroom are definitely a bit weak, but the rooms are lovely with telly and good wifi and the bed was the most comfortable we have come across in weeks!
what speaks for the room:busses are around the corner, not far to the tube and
the bed was comfortable...
what speaks against it:
i booked a room with plasma tv.what i got was a plasma tv without antenne.so i spent the evening without english tv which my daughter and i was looking forward to...
The room was clean, but it was all very loud. You could hear everything from the neighboring rooms. The cleaning of the room after check-out is at 10 clock in the evening and went to what we heard everything. The kitchen equipment is not particularly good. The chairs were dirty and torn. You could also eat in the room, because there were a table and chairs.
Das Zimmer war sauber, aber es war alles sehr laut. Man konnte alles aus dem Nachbarzimmern hören. Die Reinigung der Zimmer nach Abreise erfolgt gegen 10 Uhr abends und zog sich hin, was man alles hörte. Die Ausstattung der Küche nicht besonders gut. Die Stühle waren schmutzig und zerrissen. Man konnte auch auf dem Zimmer essen, da sich dort ein Tisch und Stühle befanden.
Moderately well connected, noisy room (police sirens, cars) that does not close window curtains and let the light (beige curtains). All amenities (fridge, TV, table and cupboard in the room). Not very clear in terms of management, but a little cafouilleux "host" helpful.
Moyennement bien desservi, chambre bruyante (sirènes de police, voitures), fenêtre qui ferme mal et rideaux qui laissent passer la lumière (rideaux beiges).
Toutes commodités (frigo, télé, table et armoire dans la chambre).
Pas très clair au niveau de la gestion, un peu cafouilleux mais "hôte" serviable.
I have visited London for 3 days. The flad was near Tower Bridge - only one station in zone 2. and only 5-10 minute by feet to Ivanildas flat.
My room was clean, the bed was good. I did not use the shower and the kitchen.
I think London is very expensive and this flat is ok for the price I have paid.
The hosts are very friendly and helpful.
My be that I will use this flat again.
Reasonable location 10 minute walk from Whitechapel Station or Shadwell DLR.
Located in old council block, this room is one of 3 available. Woodwork, flooring and walls show their age although they have been covered with a fresh lick of paint. Unfortunately the pre-painting preparation had not been done. The bathroom and toilet are shabby and the fresh caot of pink paint has not really made disguised this.
Overall a functional place to stay . bed was comfortable, there is a kitchen which is perfectly fine if you wanted to prepare something yourself. There is also a fridge/freezer in the bedroom. No bedside table though and the road noise is quite loud during the night.
It must be pointed out that the place is clean, bedding was comforatble and nice fluffy towels. Probably not worth £50/night given the area and the property. On entering the council block you are greeted by a sign in English and Hindi saying "No Spitting". It doesn't seem to have been respected.
kitchen is a bit old, but the location is not bad, very close to the bus station and it's located in zone 1/2. tesco and mcdonalds are located within 10 minutes walk.
generally not a bad experiene :)
Ivanilda is a friendly uncomplicated host.
Flat and room were clean and nicely furnished with a large kitchen
