A couple of frequently asked questions before you learn more about the flat :)
Q: Do I have the entire flat to myself/my group?
A: Yes you do. It clearly says "Entire flat" in the description as you will see.
Q: Is your place available for Date X to Date Y ?
A: You can clearly see it in the calendar and in fact to send a message you need to choose the dates of your stay, and if you can actually choose your desired dates, it is of course available
Q: Is it a sofa bed?
A: Yes, the living room has a very nice sofa bed
Q: What time can I check in?
A: Best time to check in is at or after 4pm. However, I work close by and I am flexible and can accomodate early check in (as you can see from various reviews). I am super friendly and happy to help as much as I can. (Please check our check in policy)
Q: Can I keep my luggage after I check out?
A: Yes, you can. Lot of guests do it (please see reviews yourself). It is best if you check out by 10am and you can keep the luggage inside the flat still and keep the keys, go explore the city, and come back later when you want to go to Airport or train station and pick up the luggage and give me back the keys. (Please read our check out policy).
Q: Is the place central, and can I see various attractions easily?
A: Yes, very much so - it is in zone 1 and close to almost everything. Please see reviews and see the "Getting Around" section below

I have been living in London for over six years and I speak English, French, Russian and bit of Chinese and have travelled a lot around the world. I would be able to help guests with tips on how to get the best of London - be it bars, music venues, restaurants or nightclubs.
I will give you the good first hand advice/tips on the Shoreditch area - and point out its best things - the bars/pubs all around the flat, or the Box Park (the first popup mall in the UK), SpitalFields Market with centuries of tradition and history - let you know where the best events are going on and make any introductions necessary to help you hit the ground running.
Kindly drop me a note before booking my place, and let me know a bit about yourself/other guests with you - if you do not have some details in your profile text, and if you do not have reviews/references on your profile. Much appreciated
I am a very friendly and approachable person and have had great experience in meeting great people, and would love to host users new to Airbnb - so please do tell me a bit about yourself
- -Please keep shoes in Shoe rack inside the flat: I keep my shoes just inside the flat, but outside the bedroom and living room areas in a shoe-rack. I would request you to do the same once you come inside the flat as well. This means the flat is always clean and tidy.
- -Cooking in the House: If you plan to cook you are expected to clean after yourself and wash your dishes. Please clean after cooking and wash all your dishes. This keeps the flat very clean.
- -Only guests who have booked are allowed in the apartment unless prior notice has been given.
- -This is a non smoking flat, but if you wish to smoke you can do so just outside the flat
