I am a young, entrepreneur hailing from all over living comfortably now in London. I love travelling (who doesn't) and surfing and prefer being in water than on land.

The Owner purchased this apartment in 2010

Clerkenwell is the perfect neighborhood in London due to its close proximity to everything without being noisy and overcrowded. Art and fashion flourish through the area and being able to walk to the Barbican on Sundays for a show is a treat. Oxford Circus and Piccadilly Circus are quick to get to via tube or bus for retail/shopping therapy. I first fell in love with London when living here and look forward to providing my guests with the best experience in London.

Going to my local pub and cafe to relax and take a break from the daily grind. The Barbican, St. Paul's, and being able to walk to Hoxton square and Shoreditch during the summer.

GREAT FLAT, NICE/CONVENIENT LOCATION

  • 5 of 5
I stayed in this flat for 6 weeks while working in London and it has everything you need. The flat is warm and cozy, it has all the appliances you need and has sofa beds for guests. Located between Old Street tube and Barbican it makes getting about easy. Ariel and Michel were responsive and helpful. Would recommend.

GREAT STAY

  • 5 of 5
My university aged son and I spent about 8 days in this super flat in Clerkenwell Well located, the flat is surrounded by great cafes and restaurants and is in a a neighbourhood that has a young urban vibe. The flat itself is clean, modern and well equipped with Bosch appliances.and modern furnishings.It is open and well laid out with all the amenities needed to cook and eat in, which saved us $ on restaurants. There are many great grocery stores very close by. The owner,Michael, was very helpful and accommodating and was available to answer all our questions.The flat is on the top floor(4th) of a building without an elevator which wasn't a problem for us as neither of us minded walking the stairs.but might be an issue if you are not prepared for this. I would recommend this flat and would definitely return.

My daughter and I enjoyed our one week stay in this very nice apartment. It is bright and nicely furnished. The kitchen had everything we needed for our meals and laundry. Michael, the owner, was very accommodating and also available to answer our questions. Thank you, Michael, for your hospitality! We highly recommend this location for your visit to London!

HOLIDAY IN LONDON

  • 4 of 5
Michael, the owner, was most accommodating to assist us in the payment process as we were novices with paypal. Listing photos accurate.

It is 53 steps up to flat number 6, so beware weary traveler. Once inside, the apartment is very clean, spacious, airy and light. It is much more spacious than one would expect for london. All appliances easy to figure out: dishwasher, washing machine (we did not use the dryer function), stove, microwave. Refrigerator very large. Dish detergent and laundry soap available. Cutlery for four and basic kitchen utensils, pots and pans supplied. Futons in living area low to ground and uncomfortable, thus the only relatively comfortable seating is at the kitchen table. Bedroom with armoire, duvets and most comfortable pillows and bed. Bathroom spacious and very clean with bath/shower: great water pressure and enough hot water. Even a hair dryer, so you don't need to bring one. Adaptors not available.

Noise from pub down the street amplified by narrowness of street, but most weeknights, very quiet at night.

Waitrose and TESCO within minutes walk of flat for basics and groceries. Pubs delightful, less than five minutes walk. Queens Park less than five minutes away, delightful space even with construction at present.

Be prepared to walk, more so when Tube stations close for updates, repairs as they were for several days during our stay. closest Tube station is Barbican.

GREAT PLACE TO STAY IN LONDON

  • 5 of 5
Many thanks to Michael and Ariel for this wonderful place to stay in central London. Stayed for a week with my husband and son. Close to two tube stops (Old Street and Barbican), and within walking distance of numerous tourist sights. Loved the local neighborhood - check out the Whitecross Street Market (been there since 1705) for great ethnic foods. It was wonderful to tour all day and come back to a place with plenty of space and a well equipped kitchen so we could eat in if we wanted. Definitely would stay here again if we return to London and recommend to friends. Note: This flat is on the third floor, so would be a challenge for someone who has trouble with stairs.
