About This Listing
A beautiful, newly refurbished 1 bed apartment in a historic building in the thick of the action but on a quiet side street. Super cool, sleeps 3, amazing location, super secure, pimped out tech-ed up with features you'd expect from a 5★ hotel!!
Brand new, interior designed luxury flat - classic London cool meets modern tech apartment!
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. Apartment 24a is self contained, over 2 floors, with it's own private street entrance.
The apartment was fully refurbished by an interior designer in August 2013 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 and features:
★ Living room w/sofa bed & designer lighting
★ High speed unlimited wireless internet
★ Samsung Smart TV w/satellite & Netflix/on demand
★ Comfy double bed, drawers & fitted wardrobes
★ Luxury hotel / spa style bathroom
★ Hairdryer, straighteners & loads of fresh towels
★ Private, secure entrance with alarm system
★ Kitchen w/ washer/dryer, dishwasher, fridge/freezer
★ S0NOS sound system w/speakers in every room
Guests have access to the entire apartment... Entrance hallway, living room / kitchen, bedroom and bathroom. It's your new home!
Key collection will usually be from my Espresso Bar, the very well known 'Shoreditch Grind' on old street roundabout. Keys are stored here and as we are also a cocktail bar, we are open late which allows for flexibility on key pick up time.
Luggage can also be stored here, and all the staff are familiar with my apartment, and all guests will be rewarded with coffee / cocktails to thank them for picking up keys!
Interaction with Guests
Check in is very flexible, usually key collection is from my espresso and cocktail bar Shoreditch Grind (10 minute walk away) which allows you to check in when convenient, and not having to commit to an exact time to meet at the apartment.
I always check that guests are happy, but other than that try to leave them alone to enjoy the apartment in peace!
However, I am on hand 24/7 for any problems, and I always respond very fast to and messages or texts.
Standard Check in time is 3pm, and Check Out 12am. If the apartment is not booked the day before / after, this can be flexible.
The apartment is in an unbeatable location - located in London's coolest area, home to world famous fashion designers, artists and creative agencies, the apartment is in the heart of magical Spitalfields.

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 as I live 2 minutes away I can accommodate last minute bookings.
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 not allowed anywhere in the house. Please go outside and please dispose of butts responsibly.
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.
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!
The stay was perfect! David is very helpful host. The flat was perfectly clean and well prepared for my arrival. I highly recommend this listing!
We loved staying in David's place, and loved the Shoreditch area. Absolutely ideal location, and beautiful, relaxing place to come back to every night. David was very responsive, and easy to work with. We'd happily stay there again, and couldn't recommend David and his place more highly. Oh, and make sure you grab a coffee or cocktail at Shoreditch Grind!
Great location close to Shoreditch nightlife and a shortish walk to Liverpool Station. The flat was quiet for London, being off the main road. Bed was comfy, although the couch might be better as a sleeper - didn't find it very nice to sit on. Wireless sound system was great. David was very accommodating and a great communicator.
Staying in David's nice and clean flat was amazing. You get everything you need for making you stay as comfortable as possible. Great location in Shoreditch with great restaurants, cafés and bars round the corner. Communicating with David was very easy from day one and the key pick up went very smooth even though I arrived later in the evening.
David's listing is in a really great, hip neighborhood, very close to local restaurants and shops, and only a 5-10 min walk to the Central tube line. The apartment is a great space, with recently updated touches to give it a very modern feel. And finally David's communication is excellent, with consistent checking and willing to assist at any moment. I would definitely recommend his listing if you are looking for a hip and cultured neighborhood in London!
David was amazing letting us just stay the one night in his apartment! Picking up the keys was super easy and hassle free! Apartment is in a perfect spot 5mins to Liverpool St and 2 mins into shoreditch! His coffee shop is pretty awesome too!
This is a great Airbnb and David was a fantastic host. Very responsive and accommodating. The apartment is very clean and modern and fully decked out! Really made me feel like I was living in Shoreditch and at home. Thanks David!

About the Host, David
Hi! I'm David, in my late 20s and from East London.
Amongst other things 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. This is really handy, as Shoreditch Grind provides an excellent key collection point, and also means that there are 30+ staff who can pop out and help if there are any problems and i'm not around for some reason!
As well as being an occasional AirBnB guest, I am a Host, and bought and renovated the apartment I have listed in July 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!
