The Space

We offer a private, contemporary, comfortable bedroom with en suite bathroom and balcony in a safe, quiet area with easy access to central London. And we'll start your day with a great breakfast of fresh juic

Off Old Street, you are at the crossroads with the City of London, Shoreditch, Islington and Clerkenwell with easy access to the the West End, Oxford Street, Liverpool St, Kings Cross.

Guest Access

You will have access to your room with en suite bathroom on the third floor of the building. Our living and work spaces are upstairs on the fourth. The kitchen and living room are upstairs and, as well as a generous continental breakfast, you are welcome to come up, help yourself to tea/coffee and say hi any time.

Our stairs is quite narrow and may not be suitable for people with mobility issues. Also, we are unable to accommodate children.

Interaction with Guests

We're frequent travellers ourselves so we understand that you want to make the most of your trip while having a place to feel comfortable returning to.

We want to help you make the most of your time so we are happy to give advice on what to do and where to go. Enda works from home most of the time so is happy to help in any way when in the house.

You will have access to the apartment on the third floor so come and go as you please.

Do come upstairs and tell us how your trip is going (we like a bit of gossip...).

The Neighborhood

You are in the heart of ‘Silicon Roundabout’ (London’s version of Silicon Valley) so the many bars and coffee shops are buzzing with hip young things fuelling themselves with Flat Whites as they create apps. Walk across the road and you enter the City of London, home of the Barbican Centre, the Museum of London and St Paul’s Cathedral.

Right behind us is the wonderful Ironmonger Row Baths, one of London's oldest Turkish Baths which has recently been beautifully restored. Here you'll find a gym, swimming pool and spa treatments.

We are also cuddling up on one side to Clerkenwell, the design centre of London and home to an array of unusual and decent pubs and eateries. On the other side is Shoreditch which is crammed with cool bars, galleries and shops (try Redchurch Street or Boxpark for edgy/trendy retail).

And that’s just what’s on the doorstep. The big tourist attractions are easily accessed by Tube, bus, bike or even on foot (the West End/Soho is a 35 minute walk in a straight line from us). You can head a little further east to achingly hip Dalston.

Getting Around

The 243 and 55 bus stops are one minute outside the building. You can get to Oxford Street and Covent Garden in 20 mins this way.

Old Street Tube is a five-minute walk away. The station is on the Northern Line and is two stops from Kings Cross and three from Euston. A couple of stops southwards gets you to Moorgate which is minutes on foot from Liverpool St Station. Barbican Station is also close by (10 mins walk) and from there you can reach Paddington Station, Westminster, Knightsbridge and onwards to Wimbledon, Kew Gardens and Heathrow Airport.

It's easy to flag a black cab on the street and there are cab companies nearby if you wish to book longer journeys at reasonable cost.

Other Things to Note

We will prepare the table for you to have breakfast whenever you feel like starting your day.

Help yourself to a large, hearty breakfast including organic Irish porridge oats, tasty granola, Dorset Cereals fruity muesli, granary bread, fresh fruit, yoghurt, orange juice, peanut butter, jams, butter and, of course, coffee (Aeropress and cafetière available) and a selection of teas.
