"It was so much more than a room it was a studio apartment with everything you would need for a much longer stay than ours. We cooked several meals in the suite."

Set to open in October, 2016, Leman Locke is a brand-new aparthotel in Aldgate, east London. It is an excellent location for sightseeing -- iconic sights like the Tower of London and Tower Bridge are 15 minutes' walk away. The City, London's financial district, is a 20-minute walk away. This is where you'll find the Monument to the Great Fire of London and St Paul's Cathedral, which is described by Fodor's as "a breathtaking structure, inside and out".

The property is just around the corner from Aldgate East tube station in London's East End, a trendy area that offers "an irresistible mix of old and new", says Time Out. It is home to Brick Lane, known for its market, curry houses and bagel shops, and the Whitechapel Gallery, which offers a rolling calendar of exhibitions and is "a firm favourite of art students and the avant-garde cognoscenti" (Lonely Planet). Old Spitalfields Market, a covered market with food stalls, clothing and antiques, is 10 minutes' walk away.

The aparthotel is the first in a new brand of design apartments, named after philosopher John Locke. The properties are designed to mirror their local neighbourhoods, and offer full-service facilities, including a coffee shop. All guests get access to the on-site gym.

At 29 square metres, the chic Studios are bigger than the average London hotel room. One Bedroom Locke Suites are even larger. Each has free high-speed Wi-Fi and an Apple TV so guests can stream movies from their Netflix or Amazon accounts. They all have full kitchens, kitted out with Smeg appliances, and come with a welcome pack of tea, coffee and energy bars.

The little cafe at the Leman entrance is very cozy. The barista is a milk foam artist( a swan in coffee milk foam in our case) and the server was the made you feel very at home with her excellent service..

The location near Tower Bridge. The cleanliness of the apartment. The comfort of the bed. Staff was exceptionally helpful.
Other Comments
We stayed for 12 days. When the room was going to be cleaned was confusing (every three days on the forth day) seemingly to both staff and to us. We needed to confirm and request it. We constantly had to ask for supplies: garbage bags, toilet paper, dishwasher soap, shampoo... Even when we had someone deliver something, they gave us one of something until the last day when the manager was there and we received multiples.

I loved the location in East London, just off Aldgate East Underground station. The rooms were well appointed with a washer/dryer, refrigerator, freezer, microwave, dishwasher and of course dishes, glasses, etc. The views were spectacular and the rooms incredibly spacious.
Other Comments
I would caution anyone who has hip/knee/balance issues from staying here as the bathtub/shower is unusually high to hoist yourself up into.

The flat was very stylish and well designed. The location was great, too. We enjoyed our stay very much and wish we had found the flat sooner so we could have stayed longer.

Great rate, close to tube, nice bathroom and overall room size, friendly staff, nice view.
Other Comments
Few restaurant choices (but good Turkish within walking). Hallway lights on motion detectors, too dark, not responsive enough. Housekeeping came once in 7 days. If there's some policy, never mentioned. Bed platforms have sharp edges and cramped, got injured a couple times. TV programming weak, mostly reality tv and news.
