Central London Studio room & WC

Apartment - Private room · Leather Lane, London, England EC1N 7TX, United Kingdom

The Space

We have a cosy studio flat with its own private bathroom in Central London, within 4-5 minutes walk from Chancery Lane tube station and Farringdon tube station. It is also conveniently located less than 5 minute bus ride (20 minutes walk) from St Pancras International Station (Eurostar Station). It is located in a 3 floor building and is furnished (double bed, wardrobe, desk, drawers) with core kitchen facilities (fridge, microwave, sink). The private bathroom is located across the communal hall from the bedroom.

The house is located in Clerkenwell on Leather Lane, a well known weekday London market with great food, knick-knacks and fresh local produce. The area is hip and popular among media/design/artist types and has many converted warehouses similar to the Soho and Tribeca areas of Manhattan. There are wonderful restaurants and gastropubs within a 5 minute walk of the flat in Exmouth Market and on St. John Street. For more information on the Clerkenwell area please see the following link: https://www.airbnb.co.uk/locations/london/clerkenwell

One of the best aspects of the area is its central location and proximity to public transport. There are two main underground (subway) stations within a 5 minutes walk and a plethora buses to choose from.

Your hosts live in the first floor in the same building and are always available if you need any advice with restaurants, coffee shops, museums.

Overall Guest Satisfaction

Check In
  • I stayed in Emily and Alex's upstairs studio for 24 days and had a wonderful time. It was in a great location, the room was clean and bright and had everything I needed. Emily and Alex are super friendly, they invited me down for dinner and drinks and gave me tons of advice about the city. I would definitely stay with them again on another trip, and would be glad to host if they ever come to the USA. Highly recommended!

  • It was great staying in this studio for 40 days. It looks exactly as in the photos, it is nicely decorated, and at my arrival there was even a bowl with fresh fruits. Emily and Alex are very friendly and helpful. I could knock on their door for any questions. The studio is located in a very nice neighborhood and it can be reached conveniently by train or tube. I would definitely stay there again if I get the chance to return to London.

  • Great place, people and location!

    I booked the studio for more of a business/study trip and it most definitely fulfilled my needs. Kitchenette - stocked with plates, cutlery, glasses etc, good shower, private toilet, wooden floorboards, large desk and double bed with a full length mirrored single wardrobe! Everything was very clean and as you can see; well decorated!

    The area is very central and you have a choice of two zone 1 stations to choose from to get around with. There is an array of shops, cafes/ restaurants and banks 5 minutes away. Plus, you're living on leather lane so you'll see the traders setting up their market stalls in the morning as i did on the way to work.

    Emily and Alex are so lovely and really accommodating - theres a perfect balance of feeling independent as if the place were your own but knowing Emily and Alex will help you with any query/ issue you have, respectfully and promptly.

    I would definitely stay again. :)

  • Great place! I chose this cozy little studio to be my home for six weeks and what a good choice it was. Ideally located in the center. A very inviting food market at the doorstep. Thanks Emily and Alex for being such welcoming hosts. I will be back.

  • Emily's apartment was perfect! In a great spot, very convenient to get around there are 2 tube stops nearby and some buses too. There are also some great restaurants around too and the market (literally on your doorstep) had some great stuff too! The apartment itself is great has everything you could need for a short-mid stay. Emily was also very helpful with anything we needed, we had to get an extra key for a day which was not a problem, checking in and out was fine Emily and Alex were working both times so we just dropped the keys off. Would definitely recommend staying here! Thanks again Emily!

  • This is the second time I've stayed here - and like the first the hosts were excellent with communication and any needs; the location is excellent; the room is comfortable; the stay was delightful. I highly recommend.

  • We spent some wonderful days in london at Emilys and Alex studio. It's perfectly located, there are two metro stops just around the corner and it's even easy to walk to some places. There are also some nice redtaurants and bars in this area. The room was very clean and there were fresh towels, fruits, bottles of water, tea, coffee and other things making our stay very confortable. Emily and Alex are very helpful and friendly. We had our privacy, but we knew that we can just go downstairs if we need something. There is an other appartment on the same floor and we could hear our neighbours speak or clean the dishes because the walls are porly sound proofed. But after a day walking the town we were very tired and could sleep anyway :) we would definitely recommend it! Good value for money.

  • The studio is as nice and cozy as it looks on the photos. We found it very clean and in perfect order. Your privacy is appreciated and if you need something you know you can count on Emily and Alex. They even thought of small details to ensure your comfort and pleasant stay.
    The location is great as it is really central and well connected with public transport, and even if you want to walk as well.
    I will definitely plan my stay at their place when i come back to London.
    I highly recommend the room!

  • O apartamento é exatamente igual as fotos. É limpo e nós fomos muito bem recebidos. ALém disso, na cozinha tem tudo que precisa, fica em uma ótima localização, perto de duas linhas de metrô muito usadas.

    The apartment is exactly like the photos. It's clean and we were very well received. In addition, the kitchen has everything you need, is in a great location, near two subway lines very used.
