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 looking directly onto the peaceful canal.

Old Street underground tube 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, for a small additional fee.

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.

About Peter Win

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.

Why Peter Win chose Shoreditch

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!

What makes this apartment unique

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.

Great Place to Stay

  • 5 of 5

Me and 2 friends stayed in the apartment and it was better than expected. Peter was very helpful before and during our stay which made our arrival and departure very smooth. Also, the reference guide in the apartment was an amazing resource...we followed it to the letter on our first day of touring as it provided insights that we never would have known on our own.

The apartment is as pictured and you are in walking distance of great restaurants and nightlife in Shoreditch.

Fantastic apartment in a lovely location.

  • 5 of 5

We had an eleven night stay in this fantastic two bedroom apartment. The location in Gainsborough Studios, with a balcony overlooking Regents Canal, was perfect for us. We certainly enjoyed spending time on the balcony watching people walk, ride and run along the towpath and watching the canal boats moving up and down the canal. Peter Winn was a fabulous host and nothing was too much trouble. A quick ride on the number 76 bus had us in prime tourist locations. Lovely pubs, cafes and restaurants close by with a co-op shop downstairs. Highly recommend staying here.

Excellent apartment

  • 5 of 5

Clean and comfortable apartment. We visited with three children for 8 nights and managed delightfully. The grocery downstairs was so convenient and the kids played in the nearby parks after sightseeing. The access to downtown London was simple on the buses and trains. The balcony overlooking the canal was a great place to relax and to watch people and animals go by.

Overall, a great place to stay.

Cool, clean and trendy

  • 5 of 5

The flat was left in pristine condition for us. It was exceptionally clean and very well appointed. The owner had done everything possible to make our stay better, including bringing us a second fan in uncharacteristicly hot London weather. Peter was great with questions as well and giving advice for getting around.

Great place to stay!

  • 5 of 5

Apartment is immaculate and well stocked. E-mails get answered immediately. There is a grocery store in the same building. Balcony is lovely overlooking the canal. We watched some swans. An FYI for Americans is that the dryer is a clothes drying rack which worked well with the fan blowing on the laundry. I would definitely go back to this great place in London.

Great flat in London!

  • 5 of 5

We had a great experience in this very lovely flat in Shoreditch/Hackney. All was as advertised, and the owner was very flexible when we had a death in the family and need to slightly alter our dates (the airlines? not quite so flexible). He answered all questions promptly, and provided a super place to land for a week in London.
