Not every element of the London Games disappeared as the Olympic flame died out at the closing ceremony of the 2012 London Olympic Games. The transformed suburb of Stratford was left in its wake. An established industrial area since the 1800s, Stratford was reinvented as a well-connected, modern hive of activity.
An excellent location in the booming Stratford
The area of Stratford was stunningly reinvented for the 2012 London Games. Your home could be right in the middle of the Olympic Park. Stratford One is an airy and spacious building, a stone’s throw from all the incredible facilities built for the Games, including the stunning London Stadium and one of Europe’s largest urban malls, the Westfield Stratford City. You’ll also be next to the culturally blooming Hackney Wick, packed with canalside creative spaces, warehouse bars and exuberant nightlife. Oh, and the excellent transport links can get you into central London in 15 minutes on the Jubilee line.

Stratford ONE has 1,001 bedrooms, all with a private bathroom. You can choose an en-suite room with a shared kitchen and lounge or a studio which comes with a private kitchen.
