Overview

About the property

An entire apartment in the heart of Hoxton, 5 mins' walk from Old Street tube. Close to bars, restaurants and shops. Sleeps 2+2, south facing, small private balcony, many period features, wooden floorboards, extensive library, Yamaha keyboard.

Located in the heart of Bohemian Hoxton, this bright apartment has absolutely loads of character. Generously sized with separate kitchen, dining and sitting rooms, it's the perfect base for couples but can easily accommodate four guests with the brand new sofa bed in the sitting room. It has small private balcony, bathroom with shower over, compact kitchen space with combo-microwave, washing machine and hob, spacious separate dining room, cosy living room (with new double sofa bed) with small flat-screen TV and DVD, extensive library of books and music, original artworks and new Yamaha Clavinova keyboard.

The apartment is on the first floor. There is no lift but the stairs are shallow and easy and there is a handrail.

Guests will have access to the whole apartment - bedroom, sitting room, dining room, terrace, kitchen and bathroom.

We're happy to answer any queries in advance of your stay. We'll also be there to meet you upon arrival. During your stay we're easily contactable should you require help/advice.

Shoreditch and Hoxton are London at its most cool – the heartland of the capital’s designer creativity, with cutting-edge galleries, great clubbing and live music, slick restaurants and exuberant fashion and interiors stores. Even unlovely Old Street roundabout has become known as Silicon Roundabout, at the centre of a dotcom boom that at the moment shows no sign of busting. Some may find the area’s fashionista scene a little over the top, but if you want to see London at its most confident and expressive, it’s the place to be, no question.

Old Street tube station is a five-minute walk away. The West End is only 45 minutes walk away.

A great experience

  • 5 of 5

David and Paul were wonderful with communication. David responded quickly to all queries prior to our stay. Paul was there to meet us when we checked in, and gave us a thorough tour and explanation. The place is exactly as advertised- clean, cozy, homey. Bed very comfortable. Great location for any place you want to get to- and lots of cool cafes and pubs close by. I highly recommend and would not hesitate to stay here next time my husband and I are in London.

Great location and a lovely place to stay

  • 5 of 5

I was in London on business and this apartment was a home away from home. The proximity to subway, great restaurants and pubs, and grocery stores made this a great option for the area.

Lovely flat, great location

  • 5 of 5

The flat was lovely, cosy, & well equipped for our short break. It was very close to Old Street station so easy to get into central London. Paul was a very welcoming host. We would definitely book again.

Home from home

  • 5 of 5

We had a great weekend in this lovely sunny flat, surrounded by books and music. The position couldn't be better - just far enough from the hustle and bustle but convenient for a rest-up before sallying forth again. We prefer to travel above ground if possible so it was good to have the buses a short walk away.

Thank you to David and Paul for all the help and recommendations.

The neighbourhood

Shoreditch and Hoxton are London at its most cool – the heartland of the capital’s designer creativity, with cutting-edge galleries, great clubbing and live music, slick restaurants and exuberant fashion and interiors stores. Even unlovely Old Street roundabout has become known as Silicon Roundabout, at the centre of (URL HIDDEN) boom that at the moment shows no sign of busting. Some may find the area’s fashionista scene a little over the top, but if you want to see London at its most confident and expressive, it’s the place to be, no question.

Getting around

Old Street tube station is a five-minute walk away. The West End is only 45 minutes walk away.
