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. £70 per night is based on 2 people staying per night. Furthermore, 2 sofa beds are situated in the living room, for 3rd and/or 4th person for extra £20/40 per night respectively. 2 people are sleeping in the bedroom and 2 people are sleeping in the living room. Price per night is as follows: Up to 2 People - £70 Up to 3 People - £90 Up to 4 People - £110 PLEASE NOTE: DURING THE CHRISTMAS AND NEW YEAR'S PERIOD, (20/12-10/01), PRICE PER NIGHT STARTS AT £100 FOR 2 PEOPLE SHARING. PLEASE NOTE: £75 CLEANING FEE APPLICABLE TO EVERY BOOKING! PLEASE NOTE: PARKING IS NOT PROVIDED WITH THIS LISTING! 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. For full details about the Olympic Park, please visit the Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park website. Central London is 30 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 38-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, if interested, tell me a little about yourself and contact me if you have any questions, queries or are simply curious. Thank you! FACILITIES: All rooms are very large and spacious, with standard fixtures, freshly painted and recently refurbished. Please, keep the place reasonably clean and tidy.

About the neighbourhood
The area was the host to the London Olympic Games 2012 and it was completely regenerated. The biggest shopping centre was open in Stratford in 2012, one stop away or 15 minutes walk. The near by canal offers a beautiful and peaceful walk; it does not feel like London at all. The canal is also a very popular route for cyclists. Travel links are excellent from here. Closest station is Pudding Mill Lane, (3 minutes), on the DLR, (Docklands Light Railway). Turn left from the gate and first left again; from there, keep walking straight ahead and/or follow the signs. For the tube (underground), turn right from the gate, walk straight ahead, pass the roundabout, keep walking straight, pass the McDonalds, (to your right), keep walking straight, pass the Bow church, (to your left), keep wal...
Getting around
This is zone 2. Central London is about 30 minutes away and travel connections are excellent. You have 4 overground/underground stations within 15 minutes on foot. Closest one is Pudding Mill Lane, 3 minutes away.
