Photos and Description of this 2 bedroom holiday apartment in Charing Cross
Accommodates: 4 Bedrooms: 2 Bathroom: 1
An exceptionally light and airy penthouse apartment in Dalston/Shoreditch.
Beautifully decorated with modern interior design, art-work and quality fittings and appliances. Open-plan kitchen, dining and living area with one great wall of double-height windows. Opens out to a wooden balcony to accommodate al fresco dining and drinks as well as providing a super spot to view the Regents Canal and watch the houseboats, kayakers and families of swans and ducks go by!
The bedroom downstairs is equally light and airy with plenty of wardrobe space. The colourful bathroom is equipped with fluffy towels and top-range toiletries.
Let the mezzanine be your sanctuary after a hard day's work, shopping or sight-seeing. There's a comfortable king-size bed (with memory foam mattress) and a further sitting area with large grey suede sofa, coffee table and 42'' flatscreen tv (with DVD + video player). There's also a great collection of books and DVDs for your enjoyment. For guests visiting in winter time, this area is particularly cosy!
Walk to Hoxton Square, Brick Lane, Spitalfields, Broadway Market, Columbia Rd Flower Market and Islington - all within 10-20 minutes. Or, if you'd like to see more of what is being called the coolest part of London - Dalston - you needn't walk too far from the front door at all. Further down the same street is 'Pho Mile', home to London's finest Vietnamese restaurants, as well as other edgy and arty cafe/bars.
The closest Underground stations are Liverpool St and Old St. It's a 2 minute walk to the Haggerston overground, which will zoom you down to Canary Wharf within 15 minutes or give you handy connections at Whitechapel for the District line (to Kensington in 45 minutes) or Highbury & Islington (for the Victoria line and Oxford Street in 25 minutes).
If you're a City slicker, you could walk to work or catch one of the many buses outside the apartment leading down to Bishopsgate and reach the City with 5-10 minutes.
Guestbook comments from the manager
We had an absolutely amazing stay here. I surprised my wife for our anniversary and we were very lucky with the weather. The mezzanine is the best feature and it was lovely to be out on the balcony overlooking the canal. We both absolutely loved the apartment, and are planning to come back over the summer! We got rather attached! Thanks to the owner too.
