The house number is on the outside of the building, so it should be pretty easy to find. If any problems feel free to call me or i can call you.
Once you have arrived there are keycards that opens the house front door and your double en-suite bedroom door. With this key you can come and go as you wish. The internet wi-fi code will be texted to you upon arrival and is obviously free to use as you wish. Bed linen, towels and toiletries are included.
Check-in time is as we have agreed via email. When it comes to checking out, you can simply leave the key in the bedroom and go, should i not be around to say goodbye.
The professional cleaner is booked in just after you leave, so please do check out on time.
In the bedroom there is a microwave, cutlery, glasses, kettle and mini fridge. There are no cooking facilities.
My rooms are more like a hotel suite with high standards, big bedrooms and large bathrooms.
I hope you enjoy your stay here in London and enjoy the easy access to London visitor sites nearby such as St. Pauls, London City, Westminster, West End, Big Ben, Buckingham Palace, British Museum, London Eye, National Gallery, Tate Britain, Tower of London and the interesting areas of London such as Soho, Chelsea, Hampstead and of course Clerkenwell.
To put it in one word "amazing". What you see in the pictures is what you really get in reality. Beautifully furnished rooms, absolutely amazing bathroom, and, above all, 100% privacy. Modern and sophisticated access - and it realy works. Nice and simple. I fully recommend this place.
The room was exactly as listed, very comfortable and full of character with a clean and modern washroom. The neighbourhood of Clerkenwell was really lovely, with lots of shops and activity and very central to the tube and to buses. I found it very easy to get around. The room is right on a main street and just one floor up so its quite noisy, but well worth it for the comfort and convenience.
We really liked our stay in St. John street. The room was exactly as in the picture, and everything very much to our liking. We really like the area, too. Nice restaurants in the neighborhood, close to the tube station, and walking distance to several attractions including the Thames. We walked to St. Paul's cathedral, and across the Millennium bridge to Shakespeare's Globe where we saw the Merchant of Venice, for example. A great experience! On Sunday, we visited Guildhall. Next time we will spend some more time exploring the Museum of London and the London wall.
Fabulous apartment, great location. I have stayed in two of Simon's (email hidden)hn Street. They are very stylish but quite different. Flat 1 has a great bathroom but only a kitchenette (if that). Flat 2 has a proper kitchen but only a shower in the bathroom. But you can choose one or the other, it doesn't matter. They're both awesome.
Spectacular apartment in a fantastic location. Simon was the perfect host, responded quickly to my message and calls. Would highly recommend to everyone and will definitely book again.
This is how Airbnb should be done!!
It's been a very nice stay for our 7 nights. Very value for money, convenient - located around minimart, restaurants and bars and close to the tube. Highly recommended if you are looking for a place to stay in London.
Die Unterkunft war genau wie beschrieben, sehr geschmackvoll ausgestattet und sehr sauber. Die Tube ganz in der Nähe, sowie Supermärkte und Cafés und Restaurants ebenfalls. Die Gegend selbst ist erfreulich ruhig und doch zentral. Für uns ein optimaler Ausgangspunkt für unsere Erkundungen. Zugang zum Appartment war ebenfalls unkompliziert. Hat alles prima geklappt. Wir würden jederzeit wieder kommen.
Ansonsten hatten wir einen tollen Urlaub, vielen Dank!

About the Host, Simon
Hi, I'm Simon. Welcome to The Lodging Rooms, Clerkenwell. A collection of self contained studio suites located in one of the most fashionable and well located parts of Central London. I have lived in the area for over seven years now and I can honestly say it's one of the best places that I've lived in the Capital [and there's been quite a few!]. I'm also a seasoned traveller and like to think I have a good feel for what guests are looking for in a travel accommodation experience.
Your independent en-suite bedroom is like a small apartment and occupies a whole single floor of my house. It has its own lockable door and is directly accessible from the staircase. You also get the front door key. So you are completely independent. I live in one of the apartments, so if you want privacy and security here you have it or if you fancy a beer i can show you some local bars, restaurants and tourist sites.
In short you get a high quality en-suite double bedroom apartment, a bit like a hotel suite [linen, towels and toiletries are included and the bedroom is cleaned and prepared by a professional cleaner]. All at exceptionally competitive rates.
There is a waitroses mini supermarket just round the corner for a nice bottle of wine to drink with your takeaway and relax in front of the TV in your luxury bedroom.St John St London EC1V 4JY
