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.
Simon emailed instructions a few days before my visit with all the information required to find and access the accommodation. The area was safe and really easy to get to Islington which was the purpose of my visit. I took a cab from Waterloo and the fare was only about £6.
There is a Tesco Express and Waitrose within 50 yards - handy to buy breakfast, milk although tea, coffee and sugar was provided.
This is the third time I have stayed in one of Simon's properties and the first time in this suite. Everything was perfect, as usual, and I am looking forward to my next stay in a few days.
This was a very nice experience. We loved the neighborhood and the room was indeed luxury after staying in some not so great hotels. I would definitely recommend this place. I wish we had more time to enjoy the neighborhood. We didn't get a chance to meet Simon, but he responded immediately a call I made to him upon our arrival.
We enjoyed the bathtub, which was a nice treat after we walked all over London. It is close enough to all the main attractions, but not a tourist area. In fact we had breakfast across the street at the Cafe Par and meet the owner who gave us some history on the neighborhood and said he doesn't normally see much tourist in the area. We had dinner at a local pub, the Peasant the first night and treated ourselves to a dinner on the top 3rd Floor of the Smith's. Simon provided a great list of local places to dine and visit. I just wish we had more time.
We did not meet Simon, but we knew in advance that we would not be likely to meet, as it was not a necessary part of the check-in/out procedure. The access to the room was seamless and hassle-free. The room itself fitted our particular requirements, perfectly; the area is an ideal location for exploring so many areas of London and we we would have no hesitation about returning.
Really nice place in London. The location was perfect and I love the neighborhood.
The apartment was lovely and clean! 5 stars *****

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.
