The best views in London with panoramic windows overlooking the city from each room. In a neighbourhood buzzing with nightlife, atmospheric cafes, art galleries and museums of international standard you'll just need to choose staying in or going out!

The Space

An entire two double bedroom flat in an award winning 1972 ex-council tower block with stunning panoramic views across the East End, City of London and the West End.

There is a large open plan living room/kitchen with 180 degree double glazed windows and balcony, bespoke wooden kitchen with Miele washing machine.

The rooms have large windows looking onto the stunning city view with a bespoke wardrobe. The rest of flat has beautiful laminated wooden floors with tiles in the kitchen, bathroom (with shower and bath) and separate toilet.

I work as a performance artist and painter in my nearby studio and live nearby. I have lived in London all my life and in the block for 9 years. I love London and I particularly love this area. If you want any advice about cafes, restaurants, bars, galleries or other things to do I would be more than happy.

Parking permits can be provided for just 50p per day and there is a carpark outside.
The flat comes with high-speed broadband wifi.

Fresh linen and towels will be provided and there will be a selection of teas, coffee and basic cooking items which may be used during your stay.

Smoking is allowed on the balcony, which overlooks the most amazing views of the city.

Overall Guest Satisfaction

Check In
  • Lovely place, lovely host and lovely neighborhood.

    We will come back when in London. Thank you Claire!

  • Claire's apartment was the perfect little oasis to spend a night in London in. The view is more stunning in person than in the pictures, and we loved waking up to the sun bursting through all the windows. The area is full of unique cafes and restaurants and we had a charming wander through the sunday flower market! We loved it!

  • This is a fantastic apartment in a great part of town. Views from the apartment are stunning both day and night, and the flat is well equipped and is a very relaxing place to stay, particularily when on a busy city break. Don't be put off by this being an ex council property; all the locals we met were friendly and helpful, and the surrounding area is calm and safe. Loads to do in the neighbourhood, plenty of good restaurants etc, and a 10 minute walk to the tube station.
    Claire is very easy to deal with; responds quickly to emails etc . Overall a great place to stay.

  • Great views, nice location. I'd go again! The wifi is a bit shaky but if you turn it off and on a couple of times it works. The shower is a bit tricky, but i think british showers usually are :)

  • Another great stay .. Thankyou for having us !!

    March 2014
  • We were 5 people for a weekend. The apartment is located at about 10 minutes by walk from the underground in a quiet district.
    I was a little bit worried when I arrived because the building was shabby : there was some urine in the elevator.
    Nevertheless we were very nicely suprised when we arrived in the apartment : The vue of London is wonderful with a balcony. The flat was quiet and very clean. The modern decoration has been done with a very good taste because Claire is an artist.
    I recommend this apartment !

  • Amazing flat, everything went smoothly. Just wish we could've stayed for longer, thanks Claire!

    March 2014
  • Claire was very welcoming and the flat was lovely - everything as advertised on the site. Absolutely fantastic views! The area was nice and quiet. I would highly recommend it for couple/s or a group of friends.

  • Agréable appartement en hauteur 10eme étage, très belle vue. Pour aller visiter le plus simple est de partie de Horton ouderground, on rattrape le métro d'ici. Appart très propre, très clair( pour les français habitues à dormir dans le noir, attention pas de rideaux), facilité pour récupérer les clefs, claire répond de suite aux messages, appart bien équipe, serviette de bain, papier toilette , épices et nécessaire pour cuisiner de suite... Une supérette est juste au pied de la tour et les patrons sont super sympas, cette boutique ferme tard 23h, si vous y aller en TGV c est pratique!!! Logement tranquille, nous étions deux adultes et deux ados, assez spacieux, les photos correspondent bien. Logement très bien chauffé, un peu trop pour nous mais nous avons eu un temps merveilleux, c'est peu être aussi du à cela, car l'appart est bien lumineux et exposé. Très bien situé pour faire les visites sur londres et se reposer en entrant. Quartier calme ,

I'm a London born artist working with drawing, performance and sound. My favourite part of London is where the flat is: Hoxton in Central East London. I have a studio close to the flat in Hoxton so I'm usually nearby unless I'm out of town - I do travel quite a lot but have some people to help with the flats while I'm abroad. I run super long distances and usually do a marathon every few months, so let me know if you want any advice on running routes. It's possible to run for 20 or 30 miles from my flat with only being on a road for a couple of minutes.. I enjoy welcoming guests and hope to show off the best of London!
