Description of the London vacation apartment rental
This is very clean and tidy, freshly refurbished, 1 double bedroom flat, within transport zone 2. The apartment is overlooking the Bow river canal and new Olympic stadium in East London, with excellent travel links. All rooms are very spacious and with modern furniture with plenty of storage space. Kitchen is smaller than the rest of the rooms, but very practical and fully equipped. All towels and linen are also provided, together with the welcome pack of tea, coffee, milk and breakfast cereal for the duration of your stay. Overall, this is an ideal East London base for your vacation and/or work in the city. You will have sole use of the flat during your stay.

£90 per night is based on 2 people staying per night. Single and/or double airbed can be provided for 3rd and/or 4th person for extra £15/30 per night respectively.
Price per night is as follows:
Up to 2 People - £90
Up to 3 People - £105
Up to 4 People - £120

PLEASE NOTE: DURING THE CHRISTMAS AND NEW YEAR'S PERIOD, (20/12-10/01), PRICE PER NIGHT STARTS AT £135 FOR 2 PEOPLE SHARING.

PLEASE NOTE: £70 CLEANING FEE APPLICABLE TO EVERY BOOKING!

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.

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 36-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, feel free to contact me if you have any questions, queries or are simply curious.

Area Information
The whole area has been regenerated. Surrounding canals and the river Lea offer beautiful walking routes and bird-spotting opportunities. At some places, it does not feel like you are in London at all.

If, however, you prefer the urban life style, Westfield Shopping Centre in Stratford is Europe's largest urban shopping and leisure centre, with more than 250 shops and 70 places to dine. It is only one stop away on the DLR, (over-ground train), or 4 short bus stops.

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.

Travel links are excellent, with 4 underground/overground train stations within 10 minutes on foot. Closest one is Pudding Mill Lane, (DLR train), 3 minutes away.
