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.

The room was nice and regarding london's prices quite cheap.
Toilet and shower were freshly cleaned by the houselady on our arrival, which worked out perfectly fine. We called one hour and a half before the keys were needed and arrived just in time.
Markets, bicycles (for rent) and cheap food places were just around the corner (< 5 min.).
Distance to bus station was excellent (< 5 min.), distance to underground was okay (15-20 min.).
London is a pretty expensive place so having a cinema that shows movies on wednesdays for 4 pounds is a very affordable option for one night's entertainment (less than 15 min. walking distance).
One small downer: The locks for the front door of the appartment need rework.

It's the second time we stayed in Ivanilda's house, and it was as great as the first time! The house again is very clean and we were allowed to use washing machine, which helped a lot when we've already on traveling for one week. Thank you Ivanilda!

Es ist nicht leicht den Aufenthalt zu bewerten..

Alles in allem war das Zimmer wirklich positiv. Es war so wie auf den Fotos abgebildet - auch wenn ich es größer erwartet hätte. Was die Fotos meiner Meinung nach ein bisschen verschwiegen haben waren die wenigen Mängel. Im Grunde nur Kleinigkeiten, also nichts gravierendes. Schrank war etwas rampuniert und ging auch nicht zu schließen, bei dem Nachkästchen eines bekannten schwedischen Möbelherstellers hab ich ein, zwei Schrauben nachziehen müssen, damit die Front einem nicht entgegen fallen konnte, am Fenster fehlten paar Plastikteile und das Antennenkabel verlief lose an der Wand entland, weshalb der Empfang sehr schwankte (aber man ist ja nicht in London zum Fernsehen ;) )
Die Sauberkeit war in Ordnung. Habe erst am letzten Tag unter das Bett geschaut, also keine Ahnung ob der Staub schon da war oder durch das Lüften tagsüber kam.
Das Bad und auch das Klo war sehr ordentlich. Hierfür ein Daumen hoch! ..wenn ich auch nicht verstehe wieso ein Loch in der Verkleidung der Rohre ist - egal.
Was mir besonders den Beginn des Aufenthalts verhagelt hat, war der Telefonkontakt. Ein Mann, also eindeutig nicht die Frau auf dem Foto, ging ans Telefon und sagte mir, er könne erst in einer Stunde da sein. Gut, die eine Stunde warten war selbstverschuldet. Aber zwei Stunden waren mir dann doch bisschen too much. Als ich also das zweite mal anrief, wurde ich direkt weggedrückt. Erst nach einer, zugegeben etwas harschen, SMS rief er zurück und sagte mir ich müsse bloß klingeln.
Der Mann vorort, anscheinend wieder ein anderer (oder auch nicht?) war wirklich sehr nett und zuvorkommend! Auch er kriegt einen Daumen hoch!
War nicht zu aufdringlich, stets gut gelaunt, fragte wie der Tag war,... So wie man es sich wünscht!
Leider gab es keinen Kontakt zu den anderen in der Wohnung, bis auf ein rasches 'Hello' und ein Lächeln im Flur.

Summa summarum war der Preis mehr oder minder gerechtfertigt. Besonders die gute Lage (ein/zwei Stationen Fahrt mit der DLR und man ist an der Tower Bridge) ist sehr praktisch.
Jetzt, da ich auch weiß wie die Schlüsselübergabe vonstatten geht (somit bräuchte ich mich das nächste mal nicht unnötig ärgern), würde ich vielleicht sogar wieder dieses Zimmer buchen.
(Im Grunde etwas zwischen drei und vier Sternen, aber ich hab mal aufgerundet)

At the apartment there is a lot on your personal expectations: The journey was straightforward, we have been easily found. The Note to call before arrival, we have therefore not taken so seriously - thought Ivanilda is there anyway. On our ringing but opened another guest - after contact phone gave us a friend (or relative) the key (Ivanilda itself, we have never met). It can also English, which was not the case with e-mail contact. The apartment is well equipped with newer ceramic hob and facilities such as in the pictures. Everything was clean, the room really tiny, bathroom and toilet for guests (not per room, as I had understood it on the Internet). It was really noisy, especially if you wanted to ventilate as much traffic on the road. But we could both sleep through the night well. In the neighborhood there are many food stalls, where you get everything from burgers to kebabs. The supermarket opposite has opened a long time and a good selection, right outside the house there is a bus stop for lines 15, 115 & 135 Overall we were happy with the accommodation, as you well came to town and the apartment is very well equipped for the price. Most of us bothered to contact Ivanilda and negotiators, we would have liked more personal and more organized.

The room I had was very small (single) but very functional. TV + refrigerator + very comfortable bed, you have a clée for your room no problem of privacy.
Also well placed 5 minutes (by bus) east of Aldgate station in zone 1.
Only concern the owner wants to be called 1 hour before arriving so if you not speak English I suggest you schedule an appointment by email. But for the price it is very good.

I was there for the second time. Symptom-free during both stays. Easy keys. Small but well maintained rooms with TV. Shared very clean. I would go back again.
