El alojamiento
Delightfully bright, stylish and airy duplex on historic Narrow Street. One previous guest best described this unique & comfortable home:

“The apartment is beautiful, spacious and the contemporary kitchen and bathrooms very functional and spotless. We are very happy that we made this apartment our choice for our trip to London!"

The flat is homely, well-appointed and professionally cleaned. Importantly the new beds with good quality mattresses provide the comfort you deserve after a busy day as a tourist, exhibiting at excel, having meetings in Canary Wharf or visiting family and friends.

“The house is spotless and well maintained…. And what's more, the bed is the most comfortable one I have ever tried since I came to the UK!!!"

The apartment is spread over 90m2 on two floors. The main bedroom shares the top floor with a bathroom. The second bedroom and shower room are on the ground floor. There is a separate study adjacent to this second bedroom with a big desk and lots shelves - a proper space for 'work from home'. Both bedrooms have built-in wardrobes with ample storage space. The water pump ensures that guests can enjoy a powerful and invigorating shower.

The 4.5 meter high entrance hall and a spiral staircase separates the bedrooms from in the airy lounge and the fully fitted kitchen.

Each of the two bedrooms has a king size bed and 1000 pocket sprung medium firm mattress; there is also a sofa day bed (for kids only) as well as a blow up double mattress if required.

The high ceiling, large windows, and the amount of natural light set this apartment apart from many of the flats available to rent in the neighbourhood.

Otros aspectos destacables
We provide you with towels and bed linen and some basic toiletries.

For people staying more than 5 nights we advise on an optional mid-stay light clean – to freshen the place up and change the towels.

It is a very generous two bedroom flat - and we have an additional double air-mattress for the upstairs bedroom (or lounge ) if needed. So we can comfortably accommodate 3 couples - although 6 singles might get too "familiar" during long stays...

The shelf-stairs in the lounge are made of soft plywood, displaying fragile objects. The shelves (and attached structure) have been featured on the BBC, Chanel 4, a US TV program, as well as many magazines all over the world, please enjoy it with care :) The additional room is not for use by the guests - although the design can be appreciated up close from the lounge. As the architect put it you can "have a conversation with the design from the lounge". If your very keen we can give you a sneak peak during your stay...

Finally - the property is close to a main road. Although we have secondary glazing - light sleepers may not get used to the noise of traffic. While it hasn't affected our family – it is not for those who are not used to this aspect of urban life.

Londres, Reino Unido

Limehouse is a vibrant neighbourhood with a deep historical heritage. Gordon Ramsey's gastro pub (The Narrow) is just a minute away in addition to highly rated French & Italian restaurants on one side with great value east-end cafes, Chinese takeaway, and kebabs on the other. 25min walk on the Thames Path you will find yourself in the centre of Canary Wharf. With the Thames River on the doorstep, several parks nearby, and the Limehouse Basin in a stones away, I love living here.

As the renowned thespian and local landlord Sir Ian Mckellen puts it:
“Limehouse was first settled as one of the few healthy areas of dry land among the riverside marshes. By Queen Elizabeth I's time, it was at the centre of world trade and her explorer Sir Humphrey Gilbert lived there. From directly below The Grapes, Sir Walter Raleigh set sail on his third voyage to the New World. In 1661, Samuel Pepys' diary records his trip to lime kilns at the jetty just along from The Grapes."

Please have a look at our guidebook for some of our favourites and some recommended by previous guests.

History of the area:
The name relates to the local lime kilns or, more precisely "lime oasts", by the river and operated by the large potteries that served shipping in the London Docks. The name is from Old English līm-āst "lime-oast". The earliest reference is to Les Lymhostes, in 1356.

The name 'Limehouse' is sometimes mistakenly thought to be derived from the nickname for the seamen that disembarked there, who had earned the name Lime-juicers or limeys after the obligatory ration of lime juice the Royal Navy gave their sailors to ward off scurvy.

From its foundation, Limehouse has enjoyed better links with the river than the land, the land route being across a marsh. Limehouse became a significant port in late medieval times, with extensive docks and wharves. Although most cargoes were discharged in the Pool of London before the establishment of the docks, industries such as shipbuilding, ship chandlering and rope making were established in Limehouse.

Limehouse Basin opened in 1820 as the Regent's Canal Dock. This was an important connection between the Thames and the canal system. From the Tudor era until the 20th century, ships crews were employed on a casual basis. New and replacement crews would be found wherever they were available - foreign sailors in their own waters being particularly prized for their knowledge of currents and hazards in ports around the world. Crews would be paid off at the end of their voyages and, inevitably, permanent communities of foreign sailors became established. Large Chinese communities at both Limehouse and Shadwell developed, established by the crews of merchantmen in the opium and tea trades - the area went on to achieve notoriety for its opium dens and was the location for the original Chinatown! Like much of the East End it remained a focus for immigration, but after the devastation of the Second World War many of the Chinese community relocated to Soho.

The use of Limehouse Basin as a major distribution hub declined with the growth of the railways, although the revival of canal traffic during World War I and World War II gave it a brief swansong

Modern day:
Limehouse Basin was among the first docks to close in the late 1960s. By 1981, Limehouse shared the docklands-wide physical, social and economic decline The key to the redevelopment in Limehouse lay next door in the Isle of Dogs. The sheer scale of the Canary Wharf proposals, and in due course the rapid implementation of the first phase of development, provided the impetus to the transport improvements which completely altered prospects for Limehouse as well as for the Isle of Dogs. Latterly the derelict Regent's Canal Dock has been converted into Limehouse Marina.

We are close to Canary Wharf and its cinema and in addition a variety of grocery stores, a dry cleaners, a hair salon and other shops and services can be found within walking distance.

Limehouse is once again a vibrant area of East London teaming with possibilities!

Professional working in financial services in the west end. Love travelling, chilling out, and crazy about Latin music. Enjoying meeting friends, exploring new things (samba dance and pineapple studio is my latest passion). Oh, and I am a foodie, totally! I am a bit obsessed about cleanliness. I am sensitive to dust and clutters. I love the feel of homely. When I book places, I don't need fancy stuff, basic cotton linen, quality bed and mattress and 5 star hygiene is what I value most. Some luxury in the bathroom is definitely a big plus! I practise what I preach :).
