Nice, clean apartement. Close to public transport so easy to get into central London. Very handy for events in the Olymic park in Stratford, only 20 mins away on the DLR.

Perfect for exploring London

  • 5 of 5

We loved the apartment. All mod cons, spotlessly clean and comfortable. Within walking distance of DLR, it was a perfect base to travel into London from. Although we didn't meet Dola, we found her to be a perfect host. Communication and instructions were perfect. We will be back. Thank you!

Convenient, comfortable and clean

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed Royal Arsenal Apartments. The location was great for any trip into the city. Everything you need was in the clean, quiet apartment. Access to the DLR, trains and buses was easy to find and close by. Several choices of grocery stores also close by. We would recommend this apartment highly and hope to return again. Thanks to Dola for being attentive too.

Amazing stay

  • 4 of 5

We had a wonderful stay at this flat. It is perfectly located in Royal Arsenal, not far (5 minutes' walk) from the DLR to central London. It takes about 30 minutes to get to Bank station. It is also near the Thames where we could take the boat to central London and also jog along the River. The weather was fantastic and our host had put more than welcome fans in the two bedrooms. There is a Tesco, a pharmacy... less than 5 minutes away.

The flat is quiet, you can't hear the neighbours when you close the windows.

Our host also showed us around on the first day and this was much appreciated.

Thank you Dola and Shola !
