Located just behind Hoxton Square in Shoreditch, and a stone's throw from Shoreditch's nicest public tennis court(!), this friendly flat is your perfect London home away from home. With large south-facing windows and a small balcony overlooking a big, green communal area, the flat is very light and airy. A newly remodelled, fully-equipped kitchen opens to the living room which contains a cozy sofa/TV area and a dining area. The bedroom has a double bed, a small desk and a small wardrobe.
There's a separate WC and a bathroom with a tub/shower.
Clean linen and towels will be provided as well as household basics.
The flat is actually a 2-bedroom flat, but I'm renting it out as a one bedroom flat and reserving the other bedroom for my own use when I'm not renting out the flat. You will have the whole flat to yourself when you're there, just without access to my bedroom. It is possible (though not super comfortable) to sleep 3 people in the flat as there is an ingenious foot stool in the living room which easily transforms into a single bed/mattress on floor.
My airbnb assistant, Julianne, will be there in person to check you in and will be on call to answer any questions, and help solve problems, during your stay. I will be reachable by phone and email.
A little disclaimer: The flat is in an old council estate like those found all over London, but in particular in East London. My building now holds a mix of privately owned flats (like mine) and social housing flats. As such, my neighbours come from a variety of backgrounds making for a very diverse group of residents. I personally enjoy the colorful makeup of my local neighborhood and the fact that it's a little rough around the edges (call it "authentic") but it may not be to everyone's taste. Also, due to the age of the building, it is not perfectly soundproof, so even though the neighborhood is generally very quiet, at times it will be possible to hear other neighbors.
No smoking, please. There's an ashtray on the balcony.
I'm originally from Copenhagen, Denmark, but have lived and worked in London on/off for the past 10 years in between traveling and living in East and South-East Asia. I'm currently spending most of my time in Brooklyn, New York, but try to make it back to London to eat at my favourite restaurants, go for long walks in my neighbourhood and relax in my flat as often as I can.
