Lovely bright flat in fashionable Hackney, 4 min from the train station. Great for travellers interested to discover East London’s emerging culture: alternative markets, music scene, shopping opportunities, amazing parks.

The space

The lovely split-level flat features great unobstructed views from all rooms, reaching as far as the skyscrapers of the City on the west. You can enjoy amazing skies, the sunset from the living room and directly from your bed. The bedrooms are equipped with new double beds and mattress, a wardrobe, a chest of drawers. One bedroom has a desk and the other a baby's bed that should suit young children, infants and toddlers mainly.
There is a comfortable living room with a library and a balcony facing west, great for enjoying a coffee-drink when the weather is sunny. There is a small bathroom and separate toilet room. The kitchen is fully equipped with everything you might need during your stay (cutlery, cooking utensils, dishwasher, microwave, washing machine, etc).
The flat is a maisonette on the last two floors of a late modernist 1980's apartment block. Please note that this building is not a gated community of any sort! Its residents are not all young and trendy, but it is a true section through the East London community. Despite the rough appearance of the shared areas of the building (such as the entrance and the elevator lobby) the house is safe and the neighbours are friendly.
Update August 2017 - temporary scaffolds were recently placed around the building for facade maintenance works, these should come down in a couple of months. The view out of the flat is not too obstructed, but it temporarily has a more 'industrial' feel to it.

We had a good time in Ula and Dean's place. They have given us detailed instruction and we had no problem finding the place and checking in. The area had quite a few interesting shops and we had everything we needed in the flat. Thanks!

The location or the pictures was not the same as they describe and the building wasn't good it was a smelly place. We had a ok stay.

Response from Ula And Dean:
Helen, we are sorry you left such a brief review. You don't seem to have enjoyed the neighbourhood much, which is surprising considering how vibrant is the area. With regard to the building, we informed you before your booking that repair works are currently taking place across the building, which impacts on the overall appearance of the shared spaces of the building. May I remind you that you were fine with that at the time of the booking. Sorry you had problems using our way-finding maps or understanding our directions to the flat, we'll have a look at improving those, although other guests seem to have found the way to our place easily in the past. I hope you at least enjoyed the flat if not the neighbourhood. I would suggest that in the future you put a bit more effort in tidying up after yourselves, it seems that you left in quite a hurry. Lastly, thank you again for watering our plants and keeping them lush and green.

Great views! The flat worked well for our needs. It's a pleasant environment if a bit cramped for four people, particularly without a table to eat round. As previously mentioned the building the flat is in and the lifts you use to access the flat are a bit grubby, but the flat itself is clean and enjoyable. Ula and Dean were great at communicating and flexible.

Nice place with a great view! Ula and Dean were very accommodating and easy to communicate with. Great shops and restaurants nearby and easy to get to from the overground.

Great stay and very nice place. We booked the whole apartment for 3 adults and a baby. Everything was great. Dean was really helpful and accommodating. View from the apartment was great too! We managed to see the new year fireworks from all around London .

Very nice flat, all the amenities needed and large spaces available. It was professionally cleaned before my arrival. Although the building itself is a council estate and common areas are not the best esthetically, once you are inside the flat you will find it pretty functional and the area is cool too. Most important, the host has been extremely flexible with the arrival/departure times and all other requests I made. I definitely recommend!
