Contemporary apartment in a quiet leafy suburb of Leicester. The apartment is clean, quaint & modern. Guest room with real single bed, fitted wardrobe & desk available. Wi-fi available throughout. Free secure car park. Linen and towels provided.
The apartment is 2 bedrooms. The guest room is carpeted with a single bed, a full length mirror, wardrobe & desk.

You will have a key and are free to come and go as you please- there are 2 doors to the apartment so for the period of your stay you can have you own private access if you wish.
We also have a free secure car park for your convenience.
As someone who has lived in other countries for work, leisure and education purposes and back packed extensively across Europe and the rest of the world, I am totally comfortable interacting with travellers and understand the requirement of a host- so if you wish to come and go as your please you are welcome to do so, alternatively if you are looking for a warm host and potential tour guide- me and friends are happy to oblige :) Simply think of it as a home away from home.
Clarendon Park is a well established area in Leicestershire. Lots of local pubs, bars & restaurants all within walking distance, a large park for sunshiny days and a leisure centre with gym and swimming pool approx 5 mins away.
Only 15min walk from the city centre & train station, it is a sought after suburb in the city with easy access to surrounding areas like Nottingham, Derby and Birmingham plus direct fast trains to London.
If you are looking for a conveniently-located, affordable-priced, warm and welcoming place to stay in Leicester, I'd highly recommend you stay with Zoe. Her apartment is a new build in a charming old area, so you get the best of both worlds in terms of local culture and modern amenities. The flat is located in Clarendon Park, which has many restaurants, bars, and shops, and is in easy walking distance to the University of Leicester and the city centre (there is also a direct bus if a lovely 40 minute walk doesn't appeal to you).
While there is only a single bed in the room, it's actually not as small as you'd imagine, with room for a desk, chair, wardrobe, and shelves, so lots of place to leave your stuff if you are staying for awhile as I was (6 weeks). Zoe is also very chill and doesn't act like you need to stay in the room during your stay- we hung out in the living room and kitchen often.
The best part of the stay is the host- Zoe is a very friendly person who is always up for a chat with loads of helpful tips if you are in the mood, or perfectly happy to leave you to your own devices if you wish. A perfect host!
As noted in a previous post, Zoe is a smoker but that reviewer did not mention that she smokes at the front door not inside in the apartment. If you are coffee drinker just a note that there isn't a coffeemaker on the premises but there is basically all the other small appliances you'd want.
Zoe was very friendly and provided useful local information. She's very entertaining or can leave you on your own. She provides a secure parking place which is great in Clarendon Park. She is a smoker, which I did not know. And I had a problem with the cleanliness of the bathroom and kitchen.
