Overall Guest Satisfaction

Check In
  • Excellent stay !!

    Very quiet neighborhood, with the tube a few minutes walk away.
    Nice pubs also close by, and the flat itself is luxurious and fun.

  • Simon's apartment is exactly as it appears in the photos. The room is immaculate, stylish, contemporary and very comfortable. My husband and I stayed here for two nights to start off our honeymoon and thoroughly enjoyed our stay. The apartment is well-located for cafés (The Modern Pantry which serves delicious breakfast is a stone's throw away), and is not far from Farringdon and Barbican Station. Being Londoners ourselves, and having stayed in a few hotels in the city, Simon's is definitely the best place that we've stayed in. We would certainly book again!

    thanks the kind of feedback i like

  • Stayed here for two nights and it was superb. The location is great, fantastic places to eat and such an overall awesome experience. Would definitely recommend!

  • As advertised. Beautiful room, beautiful location, perfect for a stay for two. At one point we locked ourselves out without even a cell phone, but, by remembering the host's email address, I was able to borrow a cell phone from a stranger, email the host, and get problem resolved almost instantly. Host is not at all intrusive, but is 100% on top of what is going on and available to handle any issues that arise. I would go back in a heartbeat. It is nearer St. Johns than St. Pauls, but this ended up being a good thing, because we were more in a real neighborhood, the buses were super convenient, and we were as close to the great restaurants on Upper Street as to the central London sites.

  • Simon's apartment is very clean, simple and elegant. Our stay was very brief (2 nights) but suited our needs perfectly. The bathroom is great. Access to the apartment was easy so there was no need to meet Simon. Should I be in London again, I will definitely stay there again.

  • The suite was comfortable and well-located, easy access, two great groceries on same block and pubs and restaurants in the neighborhood. Walk to St. Paul's and beyond, or get wherever you need via Farringdon tube stop. Feels like an upscale hotel suite, had a great stay.

    June 2014
  • Highly recommend this accommodation. Spacious and well appointed room and bathroom with a very comfortable bed. Great location with a wonderful coffee shop at the corner of St. Johns St. The " independent" check in is great for flexibility but be advised that you need to have a phone that works in the UK to make the initial call for entry, although Simon may have another way to let you in initially if you contact him.

  • Excellent location and luxury studio. Modern and clean cosy flat.
    Access and arrangements with the host were very easy.

    It was our first time and airbnb and we had the impression we immediately took the flagship flat! We would highly recommend it and plan to come back!

  • Simply fantastic! Also near the tube station.

  • The area is fantastic with everything you need in walking distance.
    The host is also faultless.
    The room is the same as you see on the pictures and is same as described.
    Very Clean
    Very modern
    Nice little touches from the host.
    Central location, can be busy in the mornings so looking to sleep in take some ear plugs.

The Lodging Rooms
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.
