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 2013!

You will either be sharing with another airbnb guest or with me and my very well trained little dog (toy poodle), Yuki!

I have been teaching English for speakers of other languages for the past 11 years and offer English classes upon request. I also do art classes, particularly drawing, either in the flat or around London.
I'm a self-employed performance artist/painter/animator. 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.

Overall Guest Satisfaction

Check In
  • Claire's place was great, and she was really helpful, whether sharing her tea or sharing suggestions for things to do in the area. The Space is very open, and the views of the london skyline are incredible. Her neighborhood, Shoreditch, is really cool - lots of street art and cool shops. I even found a place to get thanksgiving dinner! I'd definitely stay with Claire in the future!

    November 2012
  • Claire was a great host (hostess?) She is friendly, informative and very helpful. Her two flats are both in a wonderful central location in the new East London so very convenient for the local Shoreditch/ Hoxton attractions and accessible to everywhere else via the nearby Old Street underground station. And both flats have GREAT views over the city. Definitely stay here.

    November 2012
  • The view is unbelievable and Claire is really nice. Great place to stay and super convenient.

    November 2012
  • Claire is super friendly and considerate. The room is immaculate, the turtle, the dog and the fish are very cute, and the skyline is fantastic!

    November 2012
  • Claire was a great host, very accommodating even when I was uncertain on how long I would need to stay!

    October 2012
  • A wonderful place! Claire is a lovely hostess and the area is very nice. I always felt safe and welcomed. Some excellent restaurants and cafes are close at hand and the Tube is within easy walking distance.

    If I ever have the chance to go to London again, I will first see if Claire's flat is available.

    July 2012
  • Claire`s apartment was great. A very nice and clean bedroom with beautiful art objects on the walls. Claire is more than friendly and helpful in all situations. The area is very cool. Usually tourists won`t go there, but they miss a lot.

    May 2013
  • Claire was a very friendly host and really helpful when it came to recommending a local restaurant (lots of vietnamese nearby).

    The room is quite spacious and bright and the views are amazing.

    I got a hug from Claire's toy poodle every day which was an unexpected but very pleasant addition.

    And being on the 7th floor the lift if handy ;-)

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!
