Apartment - Entire home/apt · Caliban Tower, Purcell Street, Arden Estate, London, N1 6PW, United Kingdom

The best views in London with panoramic windows to view the city from each room. In a neighbourhood buzzing with nightlife, atmospheric cafes, art galleries and museums of international standard your problem will be choosing 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. The flat is ideal for musicians as it has a piano, guitar and (a saxophone or flute may be borrowed on request).

There is a large open plan living room/kitchen with 180 degree double glazed windows and balcony, bespoke kitchen with washing machine. There is a day bed in the living room - just larger than a single bed which can be used for additional guests. There is also a huge aquarium with a terrapin!
Most of the furniture and furnishings are high-end designer or handmade by local artisans or designers.

The two bedrooms have large windows looking onto the stunning city view with large wardrobes. One of the bedrooms also has a desk.
The rest of flat has beautiful laminated floors with custom made digital tiles in the custom-made bathroom.

The flat has been used for films and magazine photoshoots. A feature film called 'Panic' was shot almost entirely in the flat and will be in cinemas in late 2014!

Smoking is allowed on the balcony.

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 basic cooking items which may be used during your stay.

If the flat is booked on the dates you want, I have an almost identical flat in the same block - take a look at my other listings!

    April 2014
  • We all loved staying in Claire's flat; my daughters didn't want to come home!
    It is a really nice sized flat with some panoramic views of London.... and my favourite bath tub ever!
    Claire was really helpful and quickly answered any questions we had.
    Thank you for letting us stay in your place, we would love to stay again at some point :0)

  • This is a great apartment with an amazing view of London. Claire was very nice, helpful, and quick to answer any questions or concerns. Three of my friends and I stayed in this apartment, there was enough space, the kitchen was well equipped, the apartment was clean, and, all in all, we had a great time.

    March 2014
  • Claire's place is surely an artists house. It was walking distance from shoreditch. Which was great for hanging, eating and clubbing. We enjoyed our stay. It's an alternative view of london worth while to see. Claire was also very helpfull explaining the neighbourhood.

    March 2014
  • Loved it, great views, clean, really fun and artistic apartment! :)

    March 2014
  • We had a wonderful week in Claire´s apartment. It is close to everything and has wonderful view to central London. Claire is very helpful and she answer our questions fast and precisely. We warmly recommend Claire`s apartment.

    February 2014
  • It has been a wondrous week in London. Five of us stayed in the apt, and this space has a lot of things travelers deserve to have. Comfortable beds, fridge, a bath tub and even a turtle! On top of it, it has panoramic view from Canary Walf to Central London! The view at 29 Caliban Tower, in my perspective, has better view than at the London Eye. It was literally TOP London Views!
    Although getting the key for check-in was thrilling since we arrived late at night. Long story short, I almost could have met Claire's parents, but managed to get in. Thankfully, Saveway Express, which btw is located right next to the Caliban Tower, was open till 12AM, and I could get the key. (This also means it is not so hard to buy beer for good time.) I will miss the view from the flat, the street, tube, and everything about London.

    February 2014
  • I was just few days in there but quite got used to that flat.I was with 3 other persons and it's just perfect size for 4 people. Overall experience was good and i will for sure reccommend this flat and Airbnb.

    January 2014
  • Great place to stay- a short walk to busy and lively area of Shoreditch, Great view, nice, clean apartment. I will gladly stay here again.

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!
