No meet and greet. I prefer to use an innovative self serve access product provided by Smarterkey. I will send out self check in instructions prior to arrival for accessing your room suite. If you need advice on where to eat, drink or things to do I'm happy to oblige either in person or by phone.
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.

Very centrally located. Fairly quiet and ideally set up for 1-2 people. The pictures are very accurate, Simon very helpful when needed and the bed super comfortable! We found everything we needed (plug adapters, tea, coffee, iron, hairdryer, small fridge and maps) in the apartment. Wide selection of pillow and blankets available. Grocery stores and nice restaurants very close by. We can't recommend this place enough! We hope to be back soon!

The host has an automated check-in process which does not allow for error. We arrived in the evening and the door was locked. We called and texted the host several times but he did not answer. It took him 2 1/2 hours to get back to us - close to 10:30pm at night. When we did hear from him, his messages were clearly written in a rush and so grammatically scrambled that it wasn't even clear what he was saying. To add to this, he blamed the issue on another guest for going into the wrong unit, and made a joke about the apparent stupidity of that person based on the city they were from, which I found pretty distasteful. To cut a long story short, this experience was incredibly stressful and unprofessional, and the host was really difficult to communicate with. (I had also sent him a message a couple of days prior to let him know what time we would be checking in, but he never replied to that message.) If he had only made himself available, the check-in issue could have been quickly resolved and everything would have been fine. It's unfortunate because the apartment was clean, well-designed, and centrally located, but I would save yourself the hassle and stay in one of the many other clean, well-designed, and centrally located apartments in London!

Response from Simon:
In response this is a somewhat unfair representation of events. In essence one of my other guests inadvertently checked into the wrong suite. Whilst it's true there was an unacceptable delay in responding due to me having no mobile reception for an hour or so when I did try to message the guest there was no response from them either. Furthermore I offered £30 compensation for any inconvenience which was accepted by the guest who went on to comment that everything was now fine. Hence my surprise and disappointment to read this review.

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.
