Gorgeous buzzy location: restaurants, bars, pubs, shops 1 min away. Nightlife ( clubs, live music, bars and restaurants), museums and art exhibitions a 10 minute bus ride away and West End easily reached in 25 mins. Close to tube, overland and bus routes. Breakfast provided on a help yourself basis in the kitchen until 10 am . Dietary needs accomodated. Fluffy towels & toiletries also provided.

Maps and directions to places of interest available on request. Local attractions include picturesque Victoria Park where there is an organic cafe serving great breakfasts and lunches. This is located near the Pagoda across from the waterfall by the boating lake and fountain.

The park is next to the canal which leads to the Olympic village in one direction and to Islington/the Angel in the other direction. In Summer the park plays host to many music festivals which include Lovebox and Field Day

Other local attractions include London Fields with outdoor heated lido and great pub, Colombia Road flower market ( Sundays ), Spitalfields Market ( Sundays), Broadway market ( Saturdays), Roman Road market ( Saturdays ), Brick Lane, Shoreditch & Hoxton nightlife and various gyms, yoga and sports facilities nearby. Hackney now has its own cinema which also has a restaurant.

Great pubs and bars serving great food on your doorstep including Vietnamese restaurant Namo, a fish restaurant serving fresh fish specialities as well as great fish and chips, a Sicillian restaurant, a Turkish restaurant called Chambers, two Indian restaurants and the posher Empress restaurant and bar which does delicious cocktails amongst other things

Many of the local pubs have in-house entertainment including kareoke, pub quizzes, DJs and live music. There are also quiet, relaxed pubs nearby like the Crown which serves a fantastic roast beef Sunday lunch and the Empress.

I have a small King Charles Cavalier who is adorable and extremely friendly

A very hospitable host who provided additional extras i.e maps, taxi nos etc. Not intrusive but available if required for advice. Ideally situated for bus and tube services and nearby shops. Plenty of dining facilities nearby.

Had an amazing experience staying at Lesley's place, from making the booking, to constant communication to ensure we had the most comfortable stay! The room is just as described and in a really great area.

Lesley made me feel welcome throughout my stay by enquiring as to my needs, for example: was I warm enough; did I need some help in finding my way around the locality; suggesting places of interest and local cafes; offering me tea; making sure I knew where everything was in the kitchen; encouraging me to have a cooked breakfast if I wanted one; making my daughter feel welcome when she visited; ensuring I was happy with having her dog around me ( I was ). The room and bed were comfortable, spacious and close to the bathroom. There were no restrictions on the use of the bathroom, other than the usual courtesies extended to people sharing a house. Lesley`s flat is very near to bus stops from Mile End and Bethnal Green tubes, the latter being a very pleasant 15 minute walk through Victoria Park, which is itself only three minutes from the house. The Regent`s Canal runs along one side of the Park, adding to the charm of the area.

Lesley's house is totally immaculate, bathroom that you share is spotless and the bedroom is spacious and comfortable. You make your own breakfast in the morning and sit at the worktop to have it. The area is lovely, next to the park and very quiet. Go for it!
