“An expensive house share, not a house to rent”
Reviewed 30 June 2015 for a stay in May 2015

person found this review helpful

This should not be advertised on a house letting site; the owner and his partner are there on site. We paid over £700 for a 3 night stay, only to get there and discover that Alejandro and David were in residence. I have NEVER rented a house to find the owners there and am appalled that this can happen. We did the wrong thing by putting up and shutting up - didn't want a nasty atmosphere to spoil our precious time together - so holiday lettings .com are not interested. And Alejandro just says he thought we got along pretty well and that they respected our privacy by staying upstairs until we went out! We were always wondering if we would bump into them -not at all relaxing. In all disgraceful that they dare to advertise it as a house to rent. I think they have become greedy and put it on too many web sites -I have since found it on several sites, some of which are b and b sites- he had to ask me which site I had booked from when I said we were not expecting them to be there. Also too many air fresheners everywhere, terrible for people with chemical sensitivities or allergies.All in all a shame, as Alejandro comes across as friendly.

We are really sorry about this misunderstanding, but thought that it was made quite clear to this guest that the owners live in Stepney House - e.g.in the final email to the group leader dated 26th May 2015, which had the host's directions in the attachment, noted under House Rules, second sentenance it states " for some of the time the owners live in a self contained unit in the loft level .....you might see them coming or leaving the property but they will respect your privacy."
When the 4 ladies arrived at Stepney House, the lady who had made the booking was surprised that we were in the property and we offered to move out immediately, but she refused this offer. Over the weekend we gave advice and helped with arrangements, the overall impression we got from the group was happy and positive, this was confirmed by comments written by them in the Guest Book on their departure day. Once again, we are sorry that their visit didn't meet their expectations.

was easy to find from the tube and in a nice area. The house was lovely with all the amenities you would need. The rooms were really nice and we slept well in the bed, both have en suite.

Isn't it good to be able to sleep well after a hectic day exploring - glad you were able to do that at Stepney House and hope you'll come again

“Cousy and nearby house”
Reviewed 3 January 2015 for a stay in December 2014

Stepney House is located in a quiet neighbourhood although it is very near to all the things London has to offer. Nearest underground station is only a 10 minutes walk away. Alejandro is very friendly and reliable host. Not every host would come by on the early hours of New Years Eve just to turn the electricity back on. The property has lots to offer. It looks like an art gallery: all the rooms are full of beautiful pieces of paintings. Furthermore, there is a chance to cook, wash and have a good nights sleep in a comfortable bed. When we came in we were really tired and hungry, but Alejandro had prepared ourselves a nice greeting including food and wine. We had some troubles with booking, because of our travel changes, but it turned out just fine and we managed to change the days of our stay. I would recommend to check the prices before changing dates, because we did not win anything although we stayed one night less than we planned to. Alejandro was reliable and helped us solve the little misunderstanding. We really enjoyed our week in London and would definitely recommend it to all the other travellers. Stepney House has everything you need after a long day in London.

Thanks so much for choosing Stepney House to be your London base, enjoyed meeting you all. Thanks for showing a great deal of respect for the house. You were very kind to leave the bottle of Vana Tallinn, have had a small sample and love the rum infusion in it.
A number of guests have found the combination of quietness within Stepney House and the closeness to Shoreditch, Brick Lane and so many of London's varied attractions to be a good mix.

So glad that the 30th birthday celebrations went off so well and glad that a few of the welcome goodies helped make you feel very special during such a happy time for you and your friends. Hope we meet again one day, wonder what the next celebration might be ?

“Local knowledge and wonderful house!”
Reviewed 20 October 2014 for a stay in July 2014

I was very lucky to have stayed at Stepney House for several days, and in that time, I got an incredible local insight into the area! David and Ali were splendid tour guides, showing me the bustling Brick Lane (right around the corner from their house, fantastic food and street art!), pointing out historical landmarks and a gorgeous local farm. They really helped me understand the recent development of the East End, and truly enriched my first-ever visit to London.

They are also tremendously fun people, and their house is very comfortable and convenient for the Stepney Green tube station, making my London-exploration very easy.

I'm very grateful for their hospitality and insight!

Gosh, will have to find some new places to share with you before your next visit, think there are a couple already on the possible list !
The East End of London is such a vibrant area now and constantly evolving, with fascinating layers of history to be explored too - hope to see you next year and thanks so much for choosing Stepney House
