About the property

This newly painted luxury one-bedroom apartment with recently refurbished bathroom is available to rent for short and long terms stays. There is a good sized bedroom with king size bed and wardrobe, and a large semi open-plan kitchen and reception room with a comfortable double sofa bed. The kitchen has all the appliances you could need including dishwasher and washing machine.

The flat is on the 4th floor (top) of a modern block converted from offices in the late 1990s. A lift is available serving all floors. Both the bedroom and living room are bathed with light in the afternoon and evening and benefit from views towards the city, including the 'Gherkin' and the new 'Shard' and 'Cheese grater' towers.

Plumbers Row is a quiet street in Aldgate, right next to Brick Lane, famous for its curry houses and bars. Shoreditch is only a few minutes away in a taxi or bus. There is a local park for relaxing in the sun, just 1 street away.

We are a few minutes walk from Aldgate East underground station (District and Hammersmith & City lines), and the famous Brick Lane.

Buses run 24 hours from stops at the end of the road, right into the West End. Within 15 minutes you can be at Oxford Street, and within 20 minutes at the Westfield shopping centre in Stratford. There is a Barclays Bike rack at the end of the street.

Very comfortable, spacious, modern apartment.

  • 4 of 5

Enjoyed our week's stay at Ian's apartment with a couple of minor issues, but the pluses outweigh the negatives. Good location, convenient to tube, Brick Lane, and Old Spitalfields Market. Tesco supermarket at the corner. Nice views of city modern skyline.

Unfortunately, there was a strong odour, likely a rodent caught in a trap behind a cupboard, and with owner out of town, he was unable to take care of it immediately. He did so promptly when he returned a day later. After that, the rest of the week was fine, and he made amends for our inconvenience. Otherwise, only complaint was the shower controls seemed to be missing levers and were difficult to manage, especially with soapy hands. Still, we liked the place and found it very comfortable and would return if we need a place in London again.

London visit in January

  • 4 of 5

We enjoyed this flat. The location was perfect for us as my daughter is attending uni near by. It was convenient to Aldgate East tube station and lots of places to eat and shop within walking distance. The flat itself was exactly as advertised. The one thing that would have been helpful was a welcome book with more information, such as how to work the radiators and microwave. We figured it out after playing around with both. We would recommend this flat!

Excellent location!

  • 5 of 5

This VRBO has an excellent location, just around the corner from a tube stop. We just jumped on it and were off to everywhere. The first day we got lost though returning to the place and we called Ian twice and he helped us thee old ladies find our way back. Ian was very helpful and was at the place the first day we got there ready to let us in. It also is a block a way from a grocery store and several good eateries which came in very handy. I would highly recommend Ian's place.

Nice flat

  • 5 of 5

The flat was well furnished and had a close supermarket. Brick Lane is only a 5 min. Walk and tube is close. I would stay here again. But, bring your own soap.

For our needs, a great place to stay.

  • 4 of 5

This is a great place to stay as it is close to the Underground and convenient to local shops and restaurants. We would definitely stay here again as it is so nice to be able to prepare some of your own meals and the extra space allows you more freedom of movement.
