Photos and Description of this 2 bedroom holiday apartment in City of London Financial District

Spacious, Uber Clean, Apartment, 2 Bedrooms, 1 Bath, (Sleeps 4-5)

Located in the fashionable Hoxton/Shoreditch area, this cool-style London apartment makes a perfect spot to explore London.

It has 2 excellent large and clean double bedrooms, a modern bathroom with bath and power shower and a superb modern fully fitted kitchen and an incredible private outdoor balcony.

Old Street underground train station is a short walk away. Red double decker buses to St Paul’s Cathedral, Covent Garden (shopping and theatre), Waterloo (London Eye), Westminster (Houses of Parliament) and London Bridge (Tower of London & Tower Bridge) all depart 200 yards from the apartment building entrance every 3-4 minutes. Hailing a London black cab outside the building is just as easy.

The Master Bedroom and the Guest Bedroom both feature a truly superb and comfortable double bed with an excellent memory foam mattress and the finest of crisp clean linens ensuring a wonderful nights sleep. All rooms in the apartment have commanding views of the canal. The master bedroom also has the added flexibility of having an inflatable single mattress made up for a young adult if required.

The Bathroom has been designed with beautiful clean limestone tiles on the floor and around the bath/shower area.

Off the sitting room is a wonderful sheltered and protected outdoor balcony with comfortable and relaxing outdoor furniture directly overlooking the Regent’s Canal.

Within the building complex there is a Health & Fitness centre, which for a small fee offers a fully equipped managed gym complete with a full range of beauty/spa treatments.

Working in the financial markets in the City of London, I bought this apartment in 2001 as it was one of the highest quality apartment buildings in a great location that has stood the test of time. I wanted a place that enabled me to walk to work, or a short cab ride home. I travel a great deal and to have a building with 24 hour porterage was essential to ensure safety and security while I was away. With a great waterside view and offering such a sense of space, when an opportunity arose to buy a larger loft in Shoreditch, this apartment was just too good to let go. I love the area and still live, work and socialise here.

The Owner purchased this apartment in 2001

Hoxton & Shoreditch is such a vibrant neighbourhood, crammed full of exciting bars, amazing restaurants, cool galleries, vintage boutique shops and is complete with a very cool vibe. There are plenty of live music venues, specialist lighting, clothing, book and furniture shops. There are cutting edge hairdressers, live comedy shows, parks and squares to hang out in. It is a neighbourhood with photographers, designers, artist galleries, loft apartments, juice bars and just so much more for any visitor to handle! Staying at my apartment offers you the opportunity to live in a very cool and hip neighbour that just doesn't stand still. If you are creative and enjoy being part of a vibe that is away from the common and popular regular tourist traps - but close enough to visit them, take the photo and tick the box, then this is the perfect spot for you!

With my personal created walking tour guides that will be waiting for you in the apartment, you cannot fail but to make the most of what the area has to offer - and it is huge!

After a busy day exploring just how cool and trendy the area is, it is a wonderful to return home, sitting on the balcony with a refreshing drink, watching Londoners go about their everyday business on and along the Regent's Canal from a private and secluded spot. If you enjoy jogging, you can jog for miles and miles along the waters edge, not crossing any roads and avoiding all the traffic. The apartment is located in a very happening and creative area with so much to offer to all tastes.

Loved it!

We had a great stay with our family of four! The apartment was clean, gorgeous, and had easy access to the city. Peter and Roberto were great hosts and communicators. We loved coming "home" after a long day of sightseeing. Sometimes our kids were too tired to brave a restaurant for dinner, so we especially appreciated that there was a grocery store on the first floor. We'd love to stay here again one day if our travels bring us back through London!

Flat was very comfortable, clean and quiet. It was so nice to have the Oyster cards for transportation. We got out sightseeing the first day. I would definitely recommend this property to friends who are travelling to London. We really enjoyed trying the restaurants in the area too.

Fantastic Stay

My husband and I stayed at this suite for 7 nights and would highly recommend (we would go back in a heart beat). First off, communications with Peter is outstanding - you know before even arriving, this was a solid choice. The photos don't do it justice - it's a beautiful and exceptionally clean suite. We felt very safe walking in the area - day & night. Our favorite part of the day was sitting on the balcony in the evening, over the canal, with a glass of wine. We also frequented some of the restaurants & pubs Peter detailed in a booklet - they were all excellent. If you are there on a Sunday, Brick Lane market is a must - the best food we had while in London. I certainly hope that our travels take us back to London, as we will definitely stay here. Our sincere gratitude Peter!

The perfect base for a break in London

We (two couples) would recommend this wonderful apartment to anyone! It was clean, beautiful, stylish and very comfortable. We just returned from our first trip to London and we couldn´t have stayed a better place. The doubledecker buses were easy to catch just outside the apartment, when we wanted to explore the city. But the more quiet neighbourhood that surrounded the apartment turned out to be our favorite spot. It´s just a 10 minutes walk along the quiet and beautiful canal to get to Upper street with lots of shops, restaurants and cafés and without all the noise in the city. Peter has been really really helpful with everything. We found Oyster-cards for the public transportation waiting for us at the apartment and a complete guide of things to do.
There is no doubt that we will use this apartment again when we return to London.

Owner's Response: Thank you so much for your kind words. It's always great to hear when people love and appreciate the apartment as much as I do!

Wonderful Flat -Perfect for a family!

  • Review Submitted: 03-Sep-2013

We had a wonderful time in London and we loved the apartment. It was perfect for our family (two adults and two teens). It was so nice to wake up to bicycles and boats going along the canal way. The beds are VERY comfortable with nice linens. There is lots of storage space to unpack. The kitchen has everything you need. Its so nice to have the food store right in the building and the bus stop right out front. We found it very easy and fun to take the double decker buses everywhere and they come by the apartment about every 5 to 10 min. Peter, we really appreciated ALL of your kind advice and fast reply to our million questions. It was wonderful to have Roberto pick us up from the airport too! We should have booked him when we returned from Paris because we ended up paying a lot more (and Roberto is so nice too). Thank you for everything! I will gladly recommend your apartment to everyone.
