A beautiful & newly refurbished 1 bed apartment in a historic building in the heart of Shoreditch on a quiet side street. Super cool, amazing location, super secure, pimped-out and tech-ed up with features you'd expect from a 5 hotel!! Sleeps up to 3. 240+ happy guests!!! Average Review = 4.9

The space

The apartment is on the first floor of a beautiful 150 year old building in the heart of Spitalfields, in an insanely good location on a quiet side street, next to Shoreditch, Old Street & Brick Lane. The apartment is self contained, over 2 floors, with it's own private street entrance.

The apartment was fully refurbished by an interior designer last year to luxury hotel standards. This is an ultra-slick, super-cool and technology-packed place to call home whilst you explore everything incredible East London has to offer, and hop from gallery to bar to restaurant and back again!

Because the apartment is on Air BNB full time, and as no one actually lives there, it has been designed like a mini hotel, to suit the needs of visiting guests... with all the comforts of home, but none of someone else's personal things to get in the way!

It is is professionally cleaned and prepared before every visit by a specialist AirBnB / hotel cleaning firm firm who will provide bedding, towels that are laundered off site between each stay. They also provide toiletries and other essentials.

The apartment features:

★ Living room w/sofa bed & designer lighting
★ High speed unlimited wireless internet
★ Samsung Smart TV w/satellite & Netflix
★ Comfy and large double bed, drawers & fitted wardrobes
★ Luxury hotel / spa style bathroom
★ Hairdryer, straighteners & fresh towels
★ Private, secure entrance with alarm system
★ Kitchen w/ washer/dryer, dishwasher, fridge/freezer
★ S0NOS sound system

Guest access

Guests have access to the entire apartment... Entrance hallway, living room / kitchen, bedroom and bathroom. It's your new home and you'll have it all to yourself.

Check in couldn't be easier, as I've fitted a secure electronic, keyless access system, meaning there is no need to collect keys, and there will never be a delay at check in! In advance of your arrival I will issue with a unique code for the external keypad which releases the front door, and the alarm code - no keys required.

Read the reviews! I have over 150 amazing reviews and unlike lots of AirBnb hosts I have NEVER EVER cancelled on a guest in my 3 years history with AirBnb.

Please note check out is at 12pm and check out is from 4pm. These times can be slightly flexible. The cleaning team will usually arrive at some point between 12pm and 2pm on the day of check out.

Other things to note

Q: Can I book in at the last minute?
A: No problem! This flat is on Air BNB full time and because of the electronic access system there is never an issue with key collection of arranging check in.

I'm pretty easy going but I've just spend a lot of time and money refurbishing the flat and I'd like you to respect it and treat it like it was your own.

Smoking is absolutely not allowed anywhere in the house. If evidence of smoking is found, security deposit will be retained to cover extra cleaning and wear and tear.

I am happy to agree an early/late checkout but if there are new guests arriving the same day, noon check-out will always apply.

Early check-ins and late check outs may be subject to an additional fee.

If the reservation Is for 2, there is one double bed. If the reservation is for 3, the third person will be on the sofa bed. If the reservation is for 2 and you'd like to use the sofa bed for 1 person, additional charges will apply due to the additional cleaning costs and linen rental costs.

You must book for the exact amount in your party and provide names and phone numbers of any additional guests other than yourself prior to arrival.

Any damaged property will be will be handled via the security deposit. If something breaks, and you tell me about, I will be cool, and I will avoid charging you, or charge as little as possible. However if something breaks and you don't tell me.... I might not be so forgiving!

No parties, events gatherings or get togethers are allowed.

Instant bookings for only one night when I have an adjacent booking (a booking the day before or after, or both) are fine, however if you Instant book one night only in the middle of a free period of nights without messaging first, I reserve the right to cancel your booking.

Very walkable, right in the heart of Shoreditch and convenient to so many cool restaurants and bars. Transportation options to London’s major sights & areas are practically endless. Book it now if you can!

We have used Airbnb many times and David was by far the most responsive and attentive host we've ever had. His communication before and during our stay was lightening fast and super helpful, and his recommendations were spot on. The apartment was clean and exactly as listed, and the little touches like a hair dryer, bathroom products, extra towels, and Sonos are great perks. The apartment is central to everything one could want in Shoreditch and easy walking distance to the tube.

David was an exceptional host, from his quick responses to his suggestions for places in the area. The apartment is well maintained and had all the comforts needed for our 6 days in London. The bed was comfy, the kitchen had all the needed utensils, and the washer/dryer were very helpful. The Shoreditch area is a happening area and is full of restaurants and things to do every day of the week. The Spitafields market is just a few blocks away and there are multiple tube/overground stations within a 5-10 minute walk. There are also two convenient stores within 2-5 minutes which became extremely handy when we needed snacks in the evening after being out all day. Because this is such a happening area and in an older building the walls are thinner and if you are planning on going to bed early, you may need a way to block some of the nose from the busy streets and people. Overall, this apartments location and amenities were just what we were looking for on our first trip to London.

We had a wonderful stay in David's hip apartment which is conveniently located only a block from the Shoreditch station. Comfortable bed, spacious living room and the Sonos made us feel at home. The apartment is ideal for exploring the local area, including Spitalfields Market just a couple blocks away. For business trips, it's a short walk to the Tea Building and Soho Works space. Workouts are easily accessible by picking up a £12 day pass to Pure Gym a few blocks away. David was a great host and responded quickly to any messages. Happy to recommend.

David's apartment was in a great location! Within walking distance to markets, many restaurants and pubs, as well as The Thames, the Tower of London, the Monument, and other interesting sights. It was a very easy walk to the buses and tube if you wanted to go a greater distance. We always felt perfectly safe and comfortable. The apartment itself was very nice and the check-in was a breeze!

David's place is in a great location. There are many coffee shops and restaurants nearby that get busy and fun at night, but it feels away from the bustle of the more populated/touristy areas, especially during the day. Because it is in a popular spot for nightlife, it can be a bit loud in the evenings, but, with the bedroom in the back, it never bothered us. If you're headed to popular destinations from the apartment, there are many bus and train options. The bus stops are closer, and we had a wonderful time seeing the city from the bus both during day and night. Also spitalfields market is SO close and is a must for tasty donuts or curry.

David's residence is a real find. Pop out the front door and your in the middle of the bustling Shoreditch. We walked to St Paul's the first morning and it took 20 min. And it is only two min from the train.. restaurants.pubs.art galleries.shopping all within minutes. The apartment is clean and the pictures reflect exactly what you get.. we loved it!!!

About David

Hi! I'm David, in my early 30s and from East London.

I own 'Shoreditch Grind' which is a really cool espresso and cocktail bar just around the corner to the apartment I rent out on AirBNB, on Old St Roundabout, near Shoreditch. I also now have eight other 'Grind's', Soho Grind, Holborn Grind and London Grind on London Bridge and other locations across london. All are espresso and cocktail bars, and London Grind is also a restaurant. They are great spots for coffee, brunch and cocktails - check one out during your stay!

As well as being an occasional AirBnB guest, I am a Host, and bought and renovated the apartment I have listed in 2013 specifically for AirBNB, and It is listed full time.

I absolutely love living and working in the best area in London (Europe? The World?) and I'm sure you'll love it too!
